    Ask a Litecoin Miner

    I'm trying to mine LTC, but everytime I load up CGminer, or any other miner as a matter of fact, it just hangs there and does nothing. On CG Miner it says connecting forever, and then never actually starts mining...

    Thoughts on a new "Internet name" I thought of for myself?

    I was thinking of names a while back as well, I settled for one (not this one) after I joined the forum so obviously kidbest100 isn't it.. But heres some of my ideas I had. (I like slightly humorous ones) SandWichPilot AirBufallo UraniumWizard MagicMatress BreadCrustBandit IrradiatedUnicorn I know most people probably wont like those but it was just a quick 5 minute thinking spree

    Sound keeps on cutting out

    I have been having the exact same issue lately. It only seems to happen in games though. I have heard it cut out just as there is large explosions, or even just randomly when theres really not anything loud going on.

    Super annoying issue

    haha, my apologies, I meant to say 1.18 or 1.19. My actual voltage, I just checked is set at 1.175

    Super annoying issue

    So I built my new rig a few months back. It was working completely fine, but occasionally my screen would freeze up and go black. I re-did all my drivers and that seemed to fix the issue for the most part. Since then, I've downloaded my latest graphics drivers and all that, and have been keeping up to date with all of the others. However, it seems that lately, (today especially) the problems have been getting worse. What happens is that I'll be playing a game, (It seems to only really happen when playing games) and my screen will either go black, and have the game still running in the background, and my monitor will display the big white "ASUS DVI" message in the top left and after a few econds or so it will return to my game. Or my screen will go OUT of the game, and to my desktop, but instead of seeing the desktop, everything is white and all I can see is the bottom navigation bar in windows. I can't move my mouse, and I can't alt-tab back into the game. So, running windows 8.1, I just hit CTR ALT DELETE and then sign out, and sign back in to my PC which solves the issue. However it's been happening very frequently today, I've counted it happening 8 times in the past 2 hours. In case you're wondering, my specs are as follows: (And yes, these problems were happening before I overclocked my graphics card and CPU, but not as frequently) i5 4670K @ 4.4 GHz, somewhere between 1.8 and 1.9 volts, cant remember. ( Cooled by CM Hyper 212+ ) 8 gigs Corsair vengeance 1600Mhz MSI Z87 G43 Asus Radeon R9 280X DCUII TOP @ 1.1 GHz Has anyone else had this issue before?

    Powercolor R9 280X at NCIX for $329.99 (Canada)

    I managed to pick up my ASUS 280x DCUII TOP edition for the same price as that on NCIX with free shipping

    Mining Litecoin with 4x 290X

    I've been stuck on the same issue for a few weeks now, I can't get my CGminer to work, as it crashes right away, and I can't find help anywhere... However, I think it would be worth it if you could make everything else in the system very low power, and find a way to properly cool those volcanoes.

    Any Hard drive deals?

    Picked one of these up for my rig, free shipping depending on your area. http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=25350DR6011&vpn=WD20EZRX&manufacture=Western%20Digital%20WD

    Where do you shop?

    I personally use "DirectCanada" They give free shipping to certain places in Canada, which I'm eligible for, which allowed me to get more money invested into the actual hardware of my rig I have right now, instead of actually getting it here. Never really had a problem with them, and I've ordered quite a few things from them, also they have lower prices than NCIX on a lot of things.

    R9 280X DCUII Temps

    Yeah I know thats pretty much BS. No GPU running at 96 degrees is going to last as long as one running at 70 That's why I want to try and figure out if its my case causing the heat problems, or what exactly is going on.

    R9 280X DCUII Temps

    My ambient temps are actually pretty high, you're right. I live in Canada, and and on west coast, so its fairly cold here, and that's why I've got a woodstove in the house to keep things warm, almost too warm. My temperature in my house right now is about 25 degrees Celcius.

    R9 280X DCUII Temps

    Hey guys, so I just built a rig a few weeks back, with a 4670K, and an Asus Radeon R9 280X DCUII TOP. I'm playing Far Cry 3, and running ASUS GPU Tweak, and it says that my card is running at up to 86 degrees at times. My case is the Bitfenix Ronin, and I knew this wasn't such a great Airflow-oriented case, so I run the fans it comes with at minimum 75% constantly, and then stuck another third fan in the bottom, also at 75%, and they are pumping a good amount of air from what I can tell. Is this acceptable for the card? I have seen other reviews of the same model and they all said their card never went over about 70 degrees, while mine is destroying Far Cry 3 at max settings, and pumping up to 86 degrees. Is that a normal temp?
