  1. Sorry I haven't been around for a while but here's a pic of the card and harness, it is a dual  it is an 8+6 pin but I've tried 3 different blocks 4 2070s and 2080 tu104 cards but it's the actual layout of the PCB that is causing problems. It's actually a very wide card. I plan on just selling it sometime soon before the 3000 series comes out and buying something that I can already guaranteed will be easy to find a water block for. ( Pic of a 2080 block I have that doesn't work)

    I was wondering about that, I'll pause/restart a few times in a bit, If I was thinking I'd have had this setup running when i was sleeping lol. At some point I'll have to pause it for some Doom Eternal but every bit helps :)

    Kinda wish I had a spare GPU and id dig out my 6700k system and get it up and running too

    Yea just keep pausing and restarting, but I'm in the same boat. If I had another GPU and power supply I could have two running

    Shouldn't need to. The servers are just being hit REALLY hard by all of us trying to help. Also, trying to get new WU's very very often is worse for the overall good, we are effectively DDOSing them. If it has been over 30 minutes with no CPU job, just go into the advanced control and pause the CPU, wait a minute or two, then start it again. That will kick it to try and find a new server. But repeatedly trying just clocks their system up more.


    Be patient, and leave the clients open and running. It will work.... They are working very very hard trying to keep up with all of us offering help.


    To put this in perspective, before all of this, they had ~30k active users. A few nights ago they reported +400k users....... Thats more then 10x, it wouldn't surprise me if they are up to +600k which would be 20x.... They were not ready for this, but they are working as hard as possible to get the server back end stabilized as well as get WU's for us all to crunch on.

    I went into advanced and assigned as many threads I thought I could get away with but didn't pause so I'll try that now but I'm sure once LTT gets their server going for them we should be better

    OEM licenses are tied to the very first computer you install and activate it on

    If you want transfer rights and be able to make all sorts of hardware modifications, then the retail full license is recommended




    So it seems it is not transferable.

    In my experience it only works once, but I think that is only for the motherboard I, as far as I am aware you can change the cpu and ram as often as you like. If you are using a Microsoft account, you can link the key to the account and reactivate it for free after replacing a component. 

    I do have a Microsoft account, so that would take care of it? I have one more upgrade I need to do, it's not crucial but it's bugging me that it's not being used

    If I understand correctly it depends on the licence. If licence is retail I think you can move it as many times you want. if it is OEM ..I think you can move it once to a new mobo. (I may be wrong BUT)...


    I got a PC 10(?) years ago. It had Windows 7 OEM on it, I upgraded that to Windows 8 for 20-ish USD and later to Windows 10 for free. The PC was a HP and I'm pretty sure the Windows 7 licence was OEM, anyway somewhere along the upgrade path the licence changed from OEM to retail and I could apparently take that licence to another computer and a few months ago to a third computer and it is still activated with retail licence.


    So how to find out what licence you have, just open command prompt and type slmgr -dli

    A window should pop up and on the second line look for either Retail, OEM or VOLUME. (Volume is for enterprises and such so it is probably not that).


    Its OEM license
