  1. Linus, add this guys contact info to somewhere. Sharing is caring, get him some mad business.
  2. You, the company X, doesn't have to carry the inital cost of buying the hardware. You pay only for energy + a little extra for use of my hardware. You don't have to rent space, you don't have to create infrastructure, you can call quits and you don't have to liquidate all the hardware and you don't have to upgrade if your hardware ages? A lot of interest for companies, no?
  3. Okay.... this sort of might be the answer I was looking for. Yet I still believe it could put to use a lot better. Bruteforce is extremely difficult even with easily created (resource efficient) encryption like AES-256.
  4. I do mean complicated math problems and rendering. Yes, you could donate your processing power, but the processing power could be sold. While it is very generous to donate, there are reasons you could be paid for it a lot more generously. Like AI, Weather predictions, Market and engineering simulations for which companies would pay you. Instead of creating their own expensive render farms etc. Visa, MasterCard etc... they have shit tonne of more transactions than all the cryptocurrencies combined. We're not inventing the wheel here.
  5. So is any other "controlled" currency. I pay in euros for my weed You could argue it's uncontrolled and basically untrackable nature is more prone to misuse but it gives also a lot of freedom in some scenarios.
  6. You have to be naive to think you need hundreds of thousands of high end graphics cards and processors to keep up basically a transaction log. It's currently like they use AES-99999999999999999999999999999999 encryption when AES-256 would do.
  7. If it holds value and can be converted to fiat currencies.So technically It's not set up only for itself. Example US dollar is the currency for the United States and is controlled and printed by the US at it's will (prints more money any time). Bitcoin is the internet currency which isn't controlled by no single individual or organisation that can "print" cryptocurrency just out of their arse... they have to actually justify creating more currency by putting in resources.... hmm.... I partially just answered my own initial questions yet I still I wonder if the resources could be used better. For general good or for actual profit.
  8. I know it's not arbitrary, I'm saying it's arbitrarily complex for just a transaction log of sorts. And resources could be used a lot more effectively
  9. So the currency or at least the work done to create the currency is arbitrary maths and no actual computational results help outside the blockchains. It seems to me as massive waste of resources to solve them and that waste could be used as actual good or service for companies. I get the p2p cybercurrency part, freedom and currency governments can't manipulate. Instead of arbitrarily difficult unused maths, the blockchain handling could be done for much less resources and all the available processing power could be used for actual results for companies which need such computations. The money paid for those resources by the companies could be injected into the currency ( making it grow / more stable ). Couldn't those mining resources be used better? I mean for example Google pays a lot to store and do computations on data. And pretty sure for example AI-s could use that distributed computing really well. An AI powered by bitcoin mining. Even my uneducated guess of 0.00001% of the processing put into right now could hold up the blockchain and currency itself.
  10. I know the miner gets credits and stuff, but is the resources to mine the currency actually used in something? I know that F@H is for cancer research and such, but is Cryptocurrency mining like helping businesses that need distributed computing to solve problems or something? Like are businesses buying mining resources and miners contribute by solving the computations or what? Or is it just a gimmick?

    Weird anomalies after Complete Format

    Things to check. 1) Temperatures and fan control software, maybe you need to change fan curves or something. 2) Driver updates, especially gpu software should come from AMD or NVidia websites. Windows downloads drivers, but they are usually outdated. 3) Run some monitoring software to see what is going on, try Aida64 for example. Also MSI aferburner is good too (doesn't need MSI hardware). 4) unlikely, but run disk utilities to check bad sectors on HDD.

    1080 to 1080 Ti

    Buying after every second generation is reasonable for high end gaming without wasting too much money. 1080 is fine unless 4k Don't buy 1080 TI Don't buy the first top tier Volta Buy the second top tier Volta or AMD equivalent (but it's reasonable to expect best performance from Nvidia and slightly slower but a lot cheaper variant from AMD.) Personally I upgrade GPU when I get at least 90% performance boost or some special features that my old cards can not do. Or the first time I have to select "low" setting from any game =)*

    Noisy PC

    Bottom fans create most noise. I have bottom fan max 1000 rpm idle, others 1500 rpm.

    Windows not letting me reinstall.

    If you have lenovo laptop, there is a special reset button usually.

    Cheapest way to load balance 3 connections

    One more question, I know intel based stuff has those pro drivers which allow it, but I would need to get a Intel NIC card to make it work. This uses PCI lanes though and I don't want to use them as I have 2 gpus at 8xPCIE 3.0 already and I don't want them to go 4xPCIE Anything USB based that would work with intel Pro drivers?
