  1. Tesla cards are usually used in workstations or servers to accelerate certain tasks that are otherwise inefficient to run on a CPU. You can use them for stuff like video rendering, 3D modeling and rendering, game development, etc. I don't know a ton about it personally though, and I'm sure there are plenty of other uses that I haven't touched on. Thanks! I've been watching Top Gear and The Grand Tour since I'm a little kid and my favorite was always Jeremy Clarkson.
  2. You can't effectively mine with a card like that. It has enough VRAM but it's very slow, has high power consumption and wouldn't fare well by modern standards. It is Fermi after all. To the right person it's probably not junk, but you nor I are the right person.
  3. Apple: iPhone XS Max is rated for IP68 water and dust resistance (2m/6.5ft of water for up to 30min)

      Yeah, that happens unfortunately. 

  4. This is what I get from my 2TB SX8200 Pro that I bought in May. The Amazon listing explicitly stated that it had a SM2262EN which is nice.
  5. A Ryzen 7 5800X or Intel Core i7-11700K would probably fit best in a machine in that budget (assuming USD), though don't be afraid to consider the Ryzen 5 5600X or Core i5-11600K since it could give you more wiggle room for better components in other areas. However, it's an incredible pain in the butt to get a GPU at the moment. Seeing as you're building a machine from scratch, purchasing a pre-built from a company like NZXT's BLD, Digital Storm's Redux or another machine might be an easier route depending on your ability to get a GPU at or near MSRP.
  6. The Wraith Prism uses the two plastic mounting clips that are preinstalled on your motherboard out of the box. So if you took those off to install the Wraith Stealth that came with your Ryzen 5 3600, you need to reinstall them. Otherwise, it will work just fine.
  7. I have one of these and I have no complaints. I don't use it a ton but when I need it, it works great. I've used it for my Oculus Rift and sensors as well as for USB 3.0 external drive file transfers on my old X58 system and my AMD A78 system. They also make a version with an internal USB header instead of the extra 2 USB ports. The only thing I'm not in love with is it using SATA for power, but it works fine. EDIT: Not sure if this is what you meant. If you don't mean this, disregard.
  8. You can use checkra1n to jailbreak it. I'm not sure of the exact process though so I'd advise searching for a guide of some sort. As for downgrading, I believe you can't.
  9. Your GPU is dual-slot and the PCIe 1x slot on your board is one slot under your PCIe x16 slot, so a PCIe WiFi card isn't going to fit. You'll have to go USB.
  10. Does anyone have recommendations as far as sleeved PSU extensions go? I'd consider going with custom cables but no one makes them for my PSU. I don't know whether I can trust the random brands on Amazon or not given I'm powering hardware that consumes a lot of power (mostly concerned about my GPU.)

      Personally I havent ventured down this path due to pinouts (and me not understanding them enough to look up how to understand them to look and see if pinned the same).  I tried sleeving...NOT for me, I dont have the dexterity in my nimbly bimbly fingers nor the time.  Maybe someone on this forum could take on side work that is trustworthy?  Or a bunch of research (my thoughts)

  11. The slot is physically X16 but is wired as X8, so you cannot get any more than X8 bandwidth out of it.
  12. I've done this with an 8400GS, didn't have a Dremel though so I hacked at the connector with a pair of side cutters and filed it the rest of the way. Works fine even though that was a dangerous way of doing it. How much is the bandwidth gimped by doing that to it? Theoretically it shouldn't be too bad if that card is PCIe 3.0 compatible, right? Whoops saw where you said it.
  13. Nexus Mods is probably the biggest site out there for game mods, so it's definitely legit in that regard.
  14. Looks like it belongs on a USB 2.0 front panel header. Either of the two 9 pin connectors underneath the bottom PCIe slot's locking tab by the looks of it, the connector is keyed so it fits only one way. They are marked 9 in this diagram.
