  1. Found them: https://www.amazon.com/Kingwin-Performance-Tray-Less-Backplane-Enclosure/dp/B00M3WNWB2?th=1&psc=1
  2. You shouldnt have any issues, 660ti sli is about a gtx 960 in performance (thats still a very generous estimate), and my fx-8350 could drive a 970 without issues. Do be warned, Sli is generally pretty buggy and/or not supported in some games, so you may end up only using 1 of the cards even with sli enabled.
  3. Yeah the no fan mode is something nvidia introduced back in the gtx 900 series if I remember correctly. The fans turn off if there is little/no load as to reduce noise. I wouldnt worry too much about it, as gpu's can tolerate heat up to about 80c without much issue.
  4. Thats not really possible with current devices, as bluetooth dongles are so cheap and easy to get it doesnt really make sense to use a whole second device such as a smartphone just for bluetooth connectivity. You can find usb bluetooth 4.0 dongles online for like $5 U.S., I'd recommend just getting one of those and calling it a day.
  5. I'd probably go with the A55 variant, just for the fact it has 3D nand which may make it faster in random reads/writes. They look very similar otherwise.
  6. A gt 1050 is really only good for basic 1080p at low settings, even then its kinda under qualified. If you want 1080p 60fps max settings, you'd be looking for a card along the lines of a gtx 970 with regards to performance. You can use www.videocardbenchmark.net to look for graphics cards that would fit your needs. For reference, the gt 1050 has a score of 4510, vs the gtx 970 which has almost double that at 8592.
  7. It's probably just the search indexer or superfetch doing stuff, should go away after a day or 2.
  8. Did you try upping the SOC voltage to 1.1 volts? this helped memory stability immensely for me.
  9. Make sure to get a kit with samsung b-die and single rank chips, those are verified to work significantly better with ryzen. you can generally tell by the cas latency vs speed, as samsung 3200mhz kits usually have cl14 vs cl16 which are hynix chips. google is your friend.
  10. Starting a build log for probably the most unnecessary build I've ever done. I'm moving from a ryzen 1800x to an intel 7820x mainly because the x299 platform has more bells and whistles, but also because I can change the 4ghz in task manager to a 5. New parts I have planned for this build: i7-7820x, asus prime x299 deluxe, lian li alpha 550w case, then a bunch of watercooling bits like a proper top for my d5 pump. Parts I'm recycling from my old build: 250gb samsung 960 evo m.2 drive, 16gb gskill trident z rgb (only 2x8gb sticks because ddr4 is ludicrously priced right now), toshiba p300 2tb hdd, Aorus gtx 1080ti wb waterforce extreme, evga 750g2 (might get an 850 if this cant handle full load of both cpu+gpu), 1x 240mm + 1x 360mm radiator(s), 12x thermaltake pacific rgb hard tube fittings (yes), ek pwm d5 pump, 3x ek vardar fans, 2x corsair ml120 pro fans. will update with pics as parts arrive or I start putting bits together. 3/7/18 update: Case, motherboard, and riser cable got here and I decided to do a sanity check on the colors The asus white is just slightly leaning towards a bone white vs the case with a very snow white, but the difference isn't too noticeable. I do like quite a bit about this case, but there are a few things I discovered that I don't particularly like about it. For 1 there is a large air gap right above the expansion slots. For 2 the io shield mounting is super weird, there's a rail on the bottom and a bar on the top that just kinda, squeeze the shield to hold it in place leaving more air gap than I'd like around the edges. I am definitely going to do my best to get positive air pressure to combat some of the dust.
  11. I'm using windows 10 pro as the os (board activated without a key when I tried it lol) and xmr-stak for a miner. I got the chips for $100 a piece off eBay, and the board for $150. I'm also running 8x1gb sticks of ram because that's what was cheap. The board I have is a super micro h8dgi-f which is a dual socket board with 6 pcie slots. I also have some assorted gpus in there totalling 3.2khs on cryptonight pulling about 850w from the wall.
  12. I've actually got a miner with opterons in it, however they are newer chips than the 6172 you reference. I have a dual socket board with 2 opteron 6380 chips that hash cryptonight at about 525h/s per chip. The tdp on these chips is about 125w a piece, so I think it's worth it for a basic rig if you can get the rest of the parts cheap enough. I would also recommend going with a dual socket board just so you can get some extra pcie slots for GPU mining.
  13. I am currently the owner of an Asus transformer t100ha (10 inch windows tablet, atom cpu, 4gb ram, 64gb e-mmc, micro USB charging) and am looking for an upgrade. My main issue is the overall lack of processing power on the current device, it can barely playback high-bitrate 1080p video without stuttering or stalling completely. I like the fact that it uses usb to charge, even being quick charge 2.0 compatible; I would like the new device to use USB c to charge as I have several USB c devices/powerbanks already and it would make things easy. However I've been having a rather difficult time of finding any windows tablets that actually use USB c to charge and also offer better specs than I already have. Any suggestions?
  14. ^^^ This. If after the benchmark double check its still happening, I'd say card is dying. I had an R9 nano that did something similar after my initial 2 hour burn in on heaven benchmark.
  15. just to be sure, in the nvidia 3D settings you changed it to prefer maximum performance? I've had a few moments where I forgot to do that and lost a large amount of performance.
