Okay folks. Let's get back on topic. Maybe consider opening a thread in the proper section to continue your discussion, or take it to PM's.

Not all labs have money to get monster GPU like Titan RTX or RTX 3090. With limited budget you gotta do what you gotta do.

One of the lab I worked with has little money to spend on COVID19 sequencing so they improvised: A Jetson Nano Dev kit, some off brand LCD touchscreen panel and the sequencing machine itself.

I mean it takes way longer since the Jetson Nano only has like 200 something CUDA cores, but still it is able to churn out full length viral genome just fine. It can even be powered by solar panel and a battery lol

Hey if you can spare 2 CPUs that would be awesome :roll:

I already had a server but it was dated using a Core 2 Quad

I use it for transcoding video, streaming, nas, and hosting amongst alot of other stuff

2x InWin Jupiter 3x Pack of RGB Fans. These are surprisingly cheap - $40 CAD thus making it a better buy than an Arctic cooler 120mm P8 as they go for about $12 - 14 CAD each. These push 70CFM and are really quiet. Plus ARGB if that even matters.

And I just realized my RTX 3070 comes with its own Pokemon Card.
I choose you, ASUS DUAL!

It only has 3 GTA wanted stars though. So no military is coming for it.

My AMD Radeon RX 6800 reference from PowerColor is getting picked up today by a guy that wants to use it in his ITX system.

AMD's cooler solution and pcb is beautiful for a reference design here in the RX6800 series.

So if everything goes well I will be having a MSI Gaming Trio X card incoming not telling which model or if it's gonna be AMD or Nvidia I will show later but in meanwhile you can all have a guess ;)

Yeah for now, but it's heavy as f*** even the support bracket isn't really great in my Cougar Conquer case and I will be looking to trade for a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6800 XT/SE when possible because I am a Sapphire fanboy :rolleyes:

I only paid this dude the difference from what mine cost to what this card cost and he delievered to me, so it's a bit of a pricey upgrade for about £287 and yeah yet again I am lucky not to be hunted by a scalper :D

Well after a few more purchases had been made, I thought I'd share them with you all :)

I had the Heatkiller 4 block for the Threadripper which I believe I posted up, but I just thought well, putting these two together, makes me think I should really get something built up in this beast...

IMG_20201231_153614.jpgIMG_20201231_153626.jpgIMG_20201231_153928.jpg

That CPU socket and pins!! :eek: Jesus...... So far, less than £220 for the two bits of hardware (motherboard and CPU block... I'd like to find a retail boxed 2950X or possibly a 2990WX but think the 2950X is probably a better bet... Would love to get this rig up and running at some point....

Well this little guy was a motherboard, CPU and could have been RAM combo, but because I already had RAM, decided against it and just had a small discount for not having the RAM... Then I thought, umm, might grab another which I had 8GB of RAM shipped with.

IMG_20210117_112424.jpgIMG_20210117_131055.jpgIMG_20210117_190104.jpgIMG_20210120_123706.jpgIMG_20210120_123712.jpgIMG_20210120_144136.jpg

It's currently sat with my servers in the conservatory, I've got 4 of the 6 480's I had originally when I was mining a few years ago hooked up and purring away like a good en :) The other 2 480's are lent out to my sister and the other to my next door neighbour who I put together a rig for and who needed a GPU since he was waiting for a 3070 to be available.... Well... He's still waiting so hopefully since I built the PC for him in September, he'll be fine with coughing up a few extra quid I've asked for as it's been over 4, nearly 5 months with my 480... Could do with it back, these 480's are solid but kinda power hungry and a little low on the old hashrate lol :)

And lastly for the moment, a little combo I couldn't say no to, as it was one of the last Rampage boards I needed for my collection... I'd like you to meet.....

IMG_20210119_172519.jpgIMG_20210119_172718.jpgIMG_20210119_172815.jpgIMG_20210119_172848.jpg

My Edition 10 model :) Came with full cover mono block and 6850k CPU which are nicely boxed still (always great for me to have boxes with hardware...) and everything looks in pretty darn decent condition. Might consider trying to grab a 6950X maybe at some point otherwise, the 6C 12T CPU can sit in there until I swap it out for my 5960X I have in my MSI X99 Gaming Titanium board..

Just waiting on a mate today to hopefully send over a few pictures of two other combo's I'd bought a little while ago and that is me and spending on hardware done until The 5950X is properly available and same goes for the 3080 card as well... I've always a few bits of hardware to try and find and buy but ah, that can definitely wait after the amount I've bought recently :)

2 children and not a big enough house is definitely getting put to the front of my "I need to sort out" pile... :)

I hope everyone is safe, well and ok :D

@phill They might not be Rampage boards (I loved my old X48 Rampage Formula btw, that was a great motherboard!), but I think you should add an ROG Dominus Extreme and the new Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI (whew, that's a name!) to the collection. As ... honorary Rampage boards? They're both sufficiently bonkers, at least. I mean, if you're collecting the highest end enthusiast motherboards from the most expensive OEM out there, you might as well go all the way.

Got a new Idasen sit/stand desk from ikea, snapped a quick pic of the new setup:



Much cleaner, much more photogenic desk. The old desk was a horrid reddish brown colour and full of scars from 15 straight years of use.

Got a new Idasen sit/stand desk from ikea, snapped a quick pic of the new setup:

Much cleaner, much more photogenic desk. The old desk was a horrid reddish brown colour and full of scars from 15 straight years of use.
Looks nice and clean.

Looks nice, though I've long since started avoiding dark/black surfaces due to how clearly they show dust and grime. But while I do love my bekant sit/stand desk, I wish it had the sturdier legs and motors of the Idåsen.

Yeah, I was originally going to get an even more massive conventional desk from an office furniture supplier but they abruptly told me on the day of pickup that it was delayed for another month...after having already waited a month...

That desk would have had a birch-esque tabletop. Though I don't really mind the black tabletop. It's textured so it at least distracts from the dust a bit. My 15-year-old desk had a smooth glossy finish and always looked disgusting.

The tabletop is pretty much the Linnmon's. But the frame is mind-bogglingly heavy and planted. I was pleasantly surprised - had been expecting typical ikea quality like on the Linnmon I had in the UK.

It is backbreaking work to put it together, though.

I've just finished a very nice new build for a customer in a rather small case, which has taught me to mount disks and fans before anything else :cool:
Ryzen 3700X, 16GB , RX5500XT 8GB and that Wraith Prism is really cool.
