post #4276 of 9059

Honestly the world has destroyed the doge meme for me.  Ever since like last May it's become way too popular there are people at my school saying "very grade wow" and when I first heard of dogecoin I threw my monitor across the room... almost. RIP DOGE please I want it to die now.

You're not going to get any bitcoins with a GPU these days. Calculated the profit of a 7970 on a bitcoin calculator and it said it would earn 13 cents a day. The difficulty has been spiking like mad this past month too which I don't really understand as the next generation of machines are just now coming online. I'm wondering if one of the tech giants has gotten on board. My miner needs to hurry up and come online, it's almost up to a month until it would pay itself back. tongue.gif

Someone hurry up and invent a time machine, I need to go back 2 1/2 years and slap myself for laughing at BTC. I had a 6970, It was sitting idle 99% of the time, and I actually did give mining a thought at one point.

Lol

 

Mine was idle 99% of the time as well.

Lol I sold off so many second-hand 6990's for a profit during the hayday that it would take years to see a profit from BitCoin with the money i made :tongue: When it first started though, it was well worth it, but now, not really. Too much electric, heat and noise for a household setting IMO.

Spent the entire afternoon rebuilding my computer (since cable management was a bit sloppy the first time through as I built it on a school day). Made some big changes to airflow and took out my ODD (in the name of airflow!). I'll post some photos before going to bed.

 

Also, RAM was adjusted from 1600 9-9-9-24 to 1866 (all @ 1.5v). I didn't adjust the CAS latencies though (still on auto) so they're through the roof (CAS 11 and mobo automatically set it to 11-13-14-33 @ 1.5v).

That sounds like me. Except mine still needs another rebuild (or 2). The last time I took it apart was to put more cables in it. Been too busy after that.ヾ(´ー`;)ノ

I built my current computer when I was very ill. No seriously, I was barely conscious when I put it together, and yet it ran perfectly until I put Windows 8 on it. The cable management is a nightmare, but it's a nightmare behind the motherboard so it's all right. biggrin.gif I did have to go in there and work on it when the panel began to bulge though. It was nice enough to wait until I had recovered at least. Just now realizing that installing the new cooler will involve going back there... I am not looking forward to that at all.

I also OCed my RAM, went from 1600 9-9-9 to 1866 10-10-10, and the computer seems to have become more stable if anything(Palemoon hasn't crashed in days!)

I was just over at imageshack and noticed that they will soon be requiring you to pay to upload pictures, that really blow, they've been free since I've been a member there and considering my password on there is the first password I ever made up... I've been there awhile. I'll post a few pictures once I've got the new hardware put into my computer. I was just looking through old pictures and noticed that I had pictures of all my major builds(skipping the DOA AMD 1100T build I did in a cheap NZXT case) along with the headphone gear/desk I had at the time. It only took me 3 years to get an 8-pin extension cable, that's got to be the most annoying cable to deal with. It took me a good two hours to get it in with my first build because I was a noob and put a noctua CPU cooler on first.

How much did that set you back?

 

I remember hesitating to buy an Avalon back when ASICs were first announced, and at that point, they were money making machines. But $5k or so was just too much to gamble with at the time with all the doom and gloom of ASIC manufacturers missing shipping dates....

 

I've finally made the switch to Dogecoin mining, $34 a day, not too bad.

SUCH PROFIT, MUCH MONIES, VERY DOGE. TO THE MOOOOON.

 

Where do you go to cash out? And when should you? Doge is going up up and up right now. But I want to sell before it comes crashing down. Especially since its so much higher than Litecoin is right now.

 

At the current asking price. I have about $10 worth of Doge, is there anything I should look out for? Trends or anything?

Well, I moved a lot around. I moved a 140mm fan into the 5.25 bays on my case (NZXT source 220) and used the rubber pads from my Hyper 212 evo to keep it from touching the metal. Then I zip tied it to the bays.

Also voided the warranty on my CX430 to get rid of the terrible sleeving.

Moved the hyper 212 from pull to push. Had to move the RAM into A2 and B2 slots instead.

I tried goin 9-9-9-27-36 2T @ 1866 MHz @ 1.5 v (it might have autoed to 1.611v) and now my rig won't boot. Might as well go XMP 1600 or try 1866 CL 10. IIRC APUs gain more performance if MHz is higher compared to tighter timings.

Tried clearing CMOS last night and nothing happened. Not sure how to reset BIOS right now (the board won't even post. I need to search up the debug # it shows).
post #4287 of 9059

God, I just BSOD'ed again...

post #4288 of 9059

Cleared CMOS again and everything worked. I'm going to keep it at XMP 1600 for now.

 

It concerns me that either my RAM can't hold 1866 CL9 or that my motherboard can't (although it's rated for 2400Mhz max).

 

I'll try to post some photos later.

Looks like I have to move from a gaming card over to some workstation cards. Just found out Realview (Solidworks) support just cut off of gaming cards... which means ugly renders. T_T

post #4290 of 9059

Photos!

Pretty happy with the result. I'm surprised the back is fairly clean since my PSU isn't modular at all (not even semi). Also, my SSD is in a much, much better location too.
