  1. This is pretty random but when I was a teenager (32 now) I made a mod for Crysis 1 that I called the super powers mod 1 and 2 (made 2 versions). Somehow I stumbled upon a Russian YouTube channel in which someone made a full playthrough of my mod. It's a small channel but it made me really happy to find. Feels good to have my mod gain a little appreciation even if it's over a decade later. I don't have any IRL friends that would really understand what I'm talking about here since not a lot of my real friends are big gamers so I just figured I'd share it here.

  2. PSA: If you have been folding since the start and your systems haven't crashed yet, they are stable. That is all, have a great day.

  3. So firstly we need to determine what kind of usage your device has. Older PCs/Laptops that already have HDDs. These kinds of PCs can greatly have their performance improved by just adding an SSD as a boot drive, e.g. I have an old laptop from 2007 with top specs from the time, with it's HDD it was pretty unusable, with an SU800 128GB SSD in it, it is a great daily machine for your daily needs and it can still compile some stuff. Generally recommendation here is to go with mid-range SATA drives, something like SU650/SU800, BX500, MX300/MX500, micron 1100/1300, A58/A55. Fresh new build for c

  4. Introduction: This is a tutorial for setting up HFM.net, Infinity Free Hosting, and WinSCP to all work together to produce a webpage of your live folding statistics. There are a few various options you can configure within the folding client to link other PC's that are folding onto 1 PC where HFM.net reads the client and produces the website you see here which has some customization available within HFM.net: The screenshot is my Live Stats for 2 separate PC's folding a 1070 in each. They are on the same LAN, but they don't have to be. My link is in my signature. R

  8. There are too many factors interlocking right now to even try to forecast mining in particular and GPU prices in general...including China's introduction of a digital currency, 'casino speculators' galore - but also a real attempt by folks to hedge a bit against future inflation, given latest money supply growth figures. Then there's that trade war with a 25% tariff...the higher the base price, the higher this extra 'tax'. Also, it looks like NVIdia (and soon AMD ?) have successfully established an 'ueber-class' of GPUs which they can't produce fast enough to meet demand...they w

  9. Source Freebie week: Ubisoft is handing out free games and DLC every day this week (techspot.com) Free games are always nice. FYI, just sign into uplay and you should see the freebie on the front page, you just have to claim it. I'm not sure why the articles says you have to register to get the games, that is not the case... just sign in.

  11. In memory of Micheal Hertz, or as you may know him as Hertz9753, I am building this computer to fold a GPU he used to fold in the OCN Team Competition, and then sold to me. I used it to build my 2nd Son's PC. He then upgraded his GPU, and returned it to me. I will fold it under his name for a few teams he used to fold for which are 37726 and 50711. Mike gave me 3 GTX 460's free of charge and just said fold them as much as you can. We then developed a pretty good friendship. He served as an Editor on OCN for a short while. I bought the 960 and a 2600k. He always was pretty amazed at

  12. Looks like I just bought a 6900XT directly from the AMD website for MSRP (plus tax and shipping, total was about $1075) after watching one of those youtube inventory tracking videos. I made the purchase so quickly that I couldn't update my shipping address and paypal used an older address by default... so now once it actually gets shipped I'll have to hassle the shipping company to either change the delivery address or make sure they hold it at one of their stores for pick up. Honestly not sure if I'm going to keep it or resell it. Was not looking to get a 6900XT as it's a bit

  13. For this hideous profile pic! Once upon a time, there was this joke in a FAT that maybe I'd get dolled up if people could finally fold enough to beat the long-standing stretch goal we had and never hit until October of 2014. Then, @axipher, another reason to blame Canada, suggested, "How about do it on Twitch so all of us wonderful folding friends can have input on what she does." It was in this FAT that the stretch goal was not only met, but smashed and record setting. So, 1 hour of my wife doing my makeup and me live-streaming it on twitch.tv. I told a few of you, but this is the

  16. Honestly as much as mining is pissing me off right now, I am not a fan of artificial limitations being put onto cards. The real issue was Nvidia and AIBs directly selling pallets of cards to big mining operations. The issue is not the gamer who wants to mine in their off hours.

  19. New to here, i've been in the overclocking community and gaming community as a whole since around 2005 as an avid builder/gaming enthusiast. Some here may remember me from the venerable overclock.net, as the same user handle, with my venerable witness and borderline humor making the forum mods go crazy because they couldnt cite me for anything wrong. Others here may see me as a new face, if you have any major questions feel free to message at any time. hardware or software related. im here to benefit the community. I'm currently working on an IT engineering

  21. Ok, well Florida had a rare little thing called a Cold Front. Now that i dont have to run my A/C 24/7 i decided to bring out all my hardware. I aint no 7th Realm God like Avacado or Bastiaan. But hopefully i can nip at the heels of the gods like a chihuahua. Added in a GTX 780, RX 570, R9 270X, and a Intel i3-9100f. The other board is only a skylake pentium so it already has its hands full just trying to exist. Of course the MSI ITX Board for the 9100f refuses to be stable in existing so only 2 cores folding for the 9100, 3 it crashes because why not. Added up its about another 900-1mil ppd on

  24. Saw something about this place over at the other place. Been a member there since 2005 I think. Back then, Enterprise was just a post spamming kid. My how things have changed. Good on you @ENTERPRISE for venturing out on your own and getting back to the core of what makes this enjoyable. Figured I'd join here since my more technical posts are met with either: 1. Visible confusion -or- 2. An argument Over at the other location. I look forward to posting/modding/breaking stuff & things with you all.

  27. I tend to agree with the angry mob here, not one of them, but still I see their point... 1. If the first reviews are unfairly skewed in a companies favor due to pressure from the company, it will create a false sense of "awesomeness" around whatever new hardware is being released... and it can take hundreds of fair reviews before that initial opinion formed can be dampened... and of coarse the fanboys will never lose the false review based love of the new product... those of us in the know, know better than to believe the day one reviews and also know to read/watch many reviews bef

It was printed in mostly Atomic Filament CF-PETG with some parts being Colorfabb XF-CF20. I still need a parallel cable so I can hook up both batteries.

  30. Just a heads up. This is a great thermal pad that is my second go to next to Fujipoly. I have never found the thermalright pads on anything except aliexpress. These pads are 12.8 W/mk and are priced great. I found them on Amazon today with free prime. My stock was running low and was looking to re-up and found them. Posting here for fellow members to see if interested. Looks like they only have 0.5mm and 1.0mm (Guess I bought the last of the 1mm) available. https://www.amazon.com/nkomax-Thermalright-Conductive-Resistance-Temperature/dp/B08CGL7MLN/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&

  31. Hello all, So we originally had the Community Folding Project Thread which tracked a build of what was initially going to be the CFP for EHW, however upon sitting back and evaluating the build, it would not be able to perform at its best in its mining like rig configuration due to the fact that the PCIe bandwidth would be limited to 1x, which thanks to some very helpful individuals here were able to point out that there would be a fairly hefty performance hit. With this in mind, it was time to re-hash the CFP and do a rebuild best suited to Folding@Home overall. This

  32. I was rebooting for an update, and made a little change just for @Bastiaan_NL There is still one red cable hiding in there, but it's pretty much invisible since it's the auxillary PCIe power at the bottom of the board.

  35. Yessir I did. Just pulled the trigger on a HD3870 too. I want, on hand, a rig from each generation from AMD / ATI. Down to K6, and up to Ryzen. I'm slowly getting there, Thuban and FX are going to be expensive still right now, and the K6 gear is expensive. The rest is actually pretty cheap. I'd go Intel / Nvidia too but then things get too crazy.

  37. That is kinda scary, but really cool at the same time! Nice @BWG, I actually hate cables on the floor because I'm always playing with them with my feet I still need to mount my second monitor to an arm, it's 10" behind my main monitor... I have received some cool hardware today: 10900x, X299 mobo with 7 PCI-e slots, memory and a few risers! Now I'm still waiting on a lot of aluminium to build a rack to support/house all this hardware..

  41. Amazing thread, thanks to the OP This thread contains high quality information for building water loops. I'm a complete lover of complex and dynamic water loop challenges, opting most often for dual loops and most often in cases that allow tubing to flow through the back of the case as well. I love the optics of mixing hard bending with fittings bends and have just gotten into straight glass w/fitted bends. Reading through this, there's only 2 things that I think I can focus on that might help. Through my trials and tribulations of building and water cooling, I lea

  42. Indeed an accurate summary. I myself had to consider my GPU purchase for both work and play. However Nvidia really screwed the pooch this gen by supplying a high end card "3080" with an unsatisfactory amount of Vram, arguably in both gaming and productivity terms, depending on what you are running. I was considering the 6800/6900XT as AMD correctly this generation increased the VRAM to a healthy 16Gb and performance wise not bad at all....BUT their productivity and arguably gaming ecosystem is nowhere near Nvidia. This unfortunately semi forced my hand to go with the 30

  43. I've had that set for a few years now and really like them. I think you will be happy with them. Very comfortable with the velour ear pads, fit around the whole ear. Very well rounded sound, enough low end without being to Bassy to drown out the mids or highs and not too bright for me. Cord is a little long and not detachable, but I only use them at my PC and have the cord cable routed to my desk. Powering them with a Schiit stack Modi/Magni 3

You will need to resize the partition afterward since the replacement NVME is larger than the drive it's replacing but it's a pretty ezpz process.

  46. Thanks again, everyone Actually, given their price (roughly US $4 each), it is. der8auer recently ruined an expensive ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming motherboard and felt that the main reason that happened was because he took the cpu out of its carrier frame once too often: The carrier frames for such large cpus are a cheap enough part that there's no reason not to have extras on hand. While I do wonder though whether the real reason he dropped the cpu onto the socket had something more to to do with his focus on making the video over the task itsel
