  1. Hey everyone. I've done the work (I hope!) for daily user stats. It's available by clicking "Historic Stats" in the nav bar at the top of the site, or at this link: http://teamcomp.axihub.ca/historic.html I'm still working on adding hourly/monthly, team stats and UI-stuff. But I'd appreciate it if you guys could keep an eye on your own pages, and see if the numbers are accurate. And remember, the "day" is based on UTC, so you might need to do some conversion. Let me know if you find any problems, and we'll try and sort them out. Tagging everyone just be

  2. I found a few VHS things in a junk yard once. They had Armageddon Naked, Forest Hump, Jurassic Pork, Beauty and My Beast, Sucking Private Ryan, and a few others I'm not going to mention here. All hand written on the VHSs in pencil.

  3. ...those Dremel above will come in handy for mods for dual motherboards for this TT Core P8 I just picked up today at a great price locally (never mind the great weight of 40 lbs ) ..I already have a TT Core P5 (since late '18) and really like it.

  4. There shouldn't be any difference between 16x 2.0/3.0, 2.0 16x its the same bandwidth as 3.0 8x, and 8x 3.0 does not suffer any penalty in bandwidth related to PPD.

  5. Bench expansion almost complete. Got fittings coming tomorrow, plexi tops on Monday, and the Fan Controller Sunday. Very short run from rad to res and res to pump. Love that! Temp sensor on gpu inlet will feed into the fan controller. Fan Controller flush mount on front below GPU's. This isn't terrible at all! $15 on dowel rods and screws and $3 on paint.

  7. Interestingly enough, this is my first soft tube build, I started with hardline. I must say my OCD hates it, but my practical side loves having the QDC's. 05/03/21 Change Log: - 7 GPU's total; 5 Tesla M40's, 1 Quadro 4000, 1 GT710. - 2x1000w Super Flower Titanium PSU's mounted. - AC D5 with BP 100ml res & Swiftech D5/EK topper mounted. - Pump out temp 5 micron filter added. - GPU tube run completed. - Fans mounted to 2xAcool ST30's, 1 Acool XT45 360 rads. - Quadro 4000 position changed to accommodate res, 2x 3 ft HDMI and HDMI

  8. An update for my fans... lol. So a little case modding later, installed 3x 120mm Gentle typhoons into the lid and it made a huge difference. Even with the small fans I was hitting 75-80 but now around 64-66c. Clearly the cool air blowing directly on the exterior of the gpu and the backplate help's.

  9. ...project (blue) Raven was coming along nicely re. GPU performance evaluations... ...until I discovered a problem (or three) with EKWB's ""quality"" (more on that in a future post). As I'm waiting for RMA and other vendors' new parts to come in for the GPU cooling, I thought I would try to give the CPU a bit of a workout in the meantime...base numbers (first pic) are promising...then some old-school all-core oc via bios only...more to come on either front...

  10. 3 heatsinks for the back of the M40 3 extra risers for the workstation And a few stainless bolts, nuts and nylon washers to mount the M40 backplate without the original cooler.

  11. ...that doesn't necessarily make it right though Me, I'll be taking the scruples I've developed during the course of my somewhat longer life time to the grave with me. They're also among my primary reasons behind a lot of the stuff I put together and share online these days (e.g., the satirical stuff). I also do so like to make people laugh and have to admit I enjoy an audience. (though I'm sure I'd be doing something else if there wasn't one) Anyway, like I said, I appreciate your rationale for the purchase. It's a sure bet you'll make excellent use of th

  12. ...fair enough, but I have had excellent quality experience with various TT items. Also, everybody seems to be copying everybody else (at least these days) in the case world...ie. Coolermaster's new Masterframe 700 is very TT Core P_ish, right down to the marketing, all the while claiming it to be 'new and different' (check TT Core P7...) ...as for Mr. Dremel, when I got the TT Core P5 a few years back, I wanted to find a way to mount 5x thick 360 rads and 4x free-standing D5s w/o showing much of it...the Dremel was invaluable for that. What is more, the TT Core P8 is related to th

  15. ESXi for now. my major turnoffs are the 8vCPU limit and with newer versions, the CPU socket/core limits before you have to shell out real money. if it weren't for that I might plan on an EPYC build and just passthrough USB, sound, and GPU. it'd be fun to have a single computer do EVERYTHING.

  16. Sorry for continuing the OT. What @Avacado said for 2.0 x16 vs 3.0 x16. I don't have a thread, but I did some testing for the first Community Folding Project thread. I use nvidia-smi to log GPU data. Some of the queries will be dependent on the GPU architecture, the driver that is being used, and the OS (Windows or Linux) being used. Once upon a time PCIe utilization by percentage was reported by the driver (via nvidia-smi), but that is no longer the case (NVIDIA said it was noisy and not accurate). Now you can only get the Tx and Rx throughput in MB/s.

  17. It was one of the first things I noticed. My desk was totally empty and clean last weekend, it took me only one week to make a mess.. So for this picture I decided to clean it again My blinds work pretty good, my window is facing the south but I don't have any problems with light. And it's a lot cooler because of that. And I've got the same problem with cables, next time I'll clean it up with some velcro bands

  18. ...on .50 caliber: A while back, we went to a shooting range here to sight and dial in a new riflescope for deer hunting ...the range has an uphill segment with marked paper targets at 25 yards, 50 yards, 75 yards...all the way to 300 yards... ...next to our shooting slot, there was a fellow I had noticed before in the parking lot; he had a .50 caliber and a BIG new military scope...but all he ever shot at with his .50 caliber and military scope was the 25 yard target...which would flutter away anyway because of air pressure, no matter by how far he missed... ...now ba

This would not look like this given choice, but, no choice given. lol let's point out all the stupid: * cable shenanigans * that's a weed tray, not an ashtray, but former 3 pack a day idiot * modelo FTW, cause I'm mexican at heart, but rubbed italian and of scottish descent * books level the speakers, i actually measured * ac whole house impossible cause eldery "its too cold in here", check temp and it's 77degrees, so portable FTW * oh and stupid curtains cause west facing window, and me n the glowy ball of light no get along, the shades behind are

  21. Totally different topic to sales... BUT similar relativity... I recently have had to care for elderly - let's not go there - but upon moving in for full time caregiving, I found an OLD 3.5" carousel of disks. *EXCITED* is an understatement. I CAN'T WAIT to find out what's on them. Que Amazon lookup for 3.5" floppy (ha.. 'floppy' my ass) to USB. $28 ARE YOU EFFING SERIOUS?!! *EXCITEMENT retreats...* Que local thrift shop store search party, unrelated, need shelving unit, need chair/s, need other things. Stumble upon the electronics section. F

  24. ...you forgot the 'trained' bears , the raccoon and the Vietnamese pig (the latter not really Canadian, but why not, eh ?). This is an older (true) story; underlying events took place in my home province of British Columbia....

  25. Hey all, Been quiet for a bit, but I'm getting back into things properly next week. I'm trying to write some tests now so I can make some changes internally to speed things up (without f***ing anything over). But I'm going to work on the historic stats from next week. The aim is to make UI pages for: Users Hourly Daily Monthly Teams Hourly Daily Monthly I have most of the SQL written, but I'll need you guys to keep an eye on your own pages for a few days, and see if anything i

  26. ...had a nice delivery late yesterday ...Phanteks G30 Strix block is heavy; about 2.9 lbs just by itself, in part because it has a 6 mm copper coldplate . Quality seems very good... I also found a machine shop that could 'mill' the current 'outgoing' block down; if I can figure out how to attach it - it would make a great GDDR6X VRAM cooler for the back

  27. Sweet, then I can do whatever is best in the Wildcard slot. @BWG I promise to switch GPUs no more than once per week.
    1 thank
  28. Sorry to hear that about your GPU block.. I was not planning to buy one for my card, but since I'm still waiting for a Heatkiller block I was looking at a few other options. At least I know EKWB is not on that list anymore. Not many options left for now, besides waiting and keeping it cool with enough fans
    1 thank
  29. Alright I did that. Let's hope it picks up the next WU which is estimated to finish in about 10 hours.
    1 thank
  30. That is a bummer on the GPU block. I have been mostly all Heatkiller for the last little bit, but they never made a Radeon VII block. I always go with Acetal/copper blocks when possible, since everything I build is more about performance and reliability then looks. Right now it's a little tough, since it's mostly get what you can get, as soon as you can get something. Hopefully the RMA goes quick and you get the new block soon.
    1 thank
  31. Unfortunately the above isn't possible. I tried 3k RPM fans with very little obstruction. No matter the CFM, not enough air gets directed over the passive heatsinks. The tiny fans I sent E will keep the GPU's below 70c guaranteed. The amount of Db's he is willing to endure is another story.

  32. ...thought you might like this, though you might have trouble closing the bonnet if you drop this into your T6, never mind reduced leg room...also, better hope there won't be a runaway diesel effect

  33. Make sure above 4G decoding is on, IIRC it defaults to off after CMOS reset. Not quite sure why it worked the first time and not after. You are starting to run through the many headaches I had in the beginning. I feel bad
    1 thank
  34. Uh oh. So I got it all setup ! But the GPU' run too hot as they will down clock to like 600/500Mhz core...not viable lol. We are around 85c and hotspot is 100c. At this point im not 100% sure what to do. I can try hooking up the smaller fans to them I got from @Avacado and see. I didn't realise how quick these things heat up!
    1 thank
  35. That is looking great. I didn't know that MM was still making cases. I sold my MM case more than a decade ago. It is awesome to see an OG enthusiast company still around. Now you've got me configuring a custom case for my server. lol

  36. ...you'll love FS2020; it is most rewarding and also easy to learn. On top of that, it has ease of use / flight model controls, and settings for avoiding all damage - even if you drop straight down from 40,000 feet. It also has great tutorials and training flights. It does get more challenging as you go for more realistic settings, but no matter what, the visuals are stunning. A single 2080 Ti might be a bit taxed at 4K (depending also on your CPU etc, and scene complexity) but should have no trouble with 1440 Ultra settings. Below is a quick flight I did just this morning (2x 208

  37. Well looky what just came. For some reason, I swore I ordered black. But oh well. We will see how this monster looks with pedestal. This case is HUGE. There are so many configs for water cooling. Build party, dungeon, BYOB.
