  1. F@H, BOINC, and such

    Technically it's hard to say. Most of the projects that use the computing power provided by F@H and BOINC actually take years to complete, so it's not much a question of "Was it useful or not?" but rather "Did it accelerate the research or not?". If hundreds or thousands of home computer can contribute to shorten the research time by a few months or years (optimistically), that's more time that the researchers can spend on other projects. And to me that's worth it.
  2. Black Friday Deals starting now?

    I sure hope you have the "The great suspender" extension installed. You wouldn't have any problems with RAM if you used it. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/the-great-suspender/klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg?hl=en
  3. Well the markets seem to be dropping in the last few days, so I don't think it will go up in at least a few weeks.
  4. Yeah that was a few weeks ago, I retested today and I only get around 2-3$.
  5. 3-4$ a day with nicehash and my strix 1070, not counting electricity costs etc
  6. hmm

    I installed NiceHash, and currently it's either setting me up on Equihash or DaggerHashimoto. I'm really new at this, I barely started yesterday so please excuse my ignorance on the subject.
  7. hmm

    So you guys think 60C is a safe temperature spot? Because I'm also mining with a 1070 but my temperatures are rather at 71C (and constant) with a power consumption of 85% (100% GPU and frame buffer usage), and right now I turn it off when I'm not at home because I'm too scared that something might happen.
  8. {Probably Worldwide} GOG, Saint Row 2 (Free)

    It's available on steam too, got it yesterday. I don't know if it's a good game though, it seems weird.
  9. Game of Thrones Season 5 (SD) Free (ENDED)

    Is it still working? I'm trying to get it but it doesn't seem to work even though I'm in Switzerland.
  10. Moving computer around

    Love it, it's my first gaming monitor ever (I've only had laptops until then) and I think it's great, the picture quality is good and the 144hz refresh rate is definitely visible in games. Thank you guys for all your suggestions, I guess I'll either use the car or stick with my previous plan.
  11. Moving computer around

    Hey guys! So in a month I'm moving out of my current place, so I need to move my desktop from the current house to the new apartment. My built is as follows : https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Nashiwa/saved/tfZ8dC What would be the safest way to move it? I have access to either a car or public transportation, and what I was planning to do was unplug the graphics card, then put the case in a luggage and wrap it in clothes, then take the bus to the new place. For the monitor I can simply put it back in its box and move it by car, it has less moving parts so there should be less problems. I know I should probably remove the heat sink too, but I'm too lazy to buy and reapply some thermal paste.
  12. ssd made my boot time slower??

    Well no wonder...if you want your boot time to be faster then your OS should be on the SSD.
  13. Good enough?

    Looks good to me. 750W PSU might be a bit overkill though.
  14. Looks pretty good, I'm not really up to date with the Gen7 Intel stuff so I'll let other give their input on the mobo and cpu. But the rest seems fine to me.
  15. How is my pc build?

    The S340 doesn't have slots for internal DVD drives. A part from that I'll let others give their input on the rest.
