UH, you still using a Vali 2?

I just purchased a Magni 3+, think I'm tired of the "softer" tube app sound of my Vali. I've been playing a lot of DOOM and the game sounds better if I use my bluetooth headphones over the Vali/DT990s.

COVID has ruined this hobby.

Edt: Then add in miners. It should be one of the best times, but it is not.

You see nvidia lift the ban on GPU passthrough with RTX cards? Pretty exciting

it was stupid low over the weekend. hovering between $12-15.

i did see $25 friday before the collapse over the weekend. it fluctuates greatly now. apparently, a mining farm in China caught fire or something. that's why it was so high for a week or 2. then they came back online over the weekend. i think that's what happened. something about China is causing profits to be low right now.

(2) 1660 Supers - Mining Rig
(1) 1660 Ti - Mining Rig
(1) 5700 XT - Mining Rig
(1) 3060 Ti - Gaming Rig

for what it's worth, (2) 1660 supers or Tis will hash the same as a 3060Ti/3070 and also cheaper on the scalper's price. but resale value might be lower. especially if/when EIP-1559 comes around in July.


eta: since i submitted this post, it's back down to sub $14.

i should also add this. if you want any kind of HDD, you better buy it now. the new mining trend is PoS&T (Proof of Space & Time) aka "Plotting" and CHIA coin is the front runner.

I mined before, just not worth it to buy in now.

Also couldn't keep them I. My garage, had to keep inside. Didn't matter, still sounded like a swarm of bees were right outside.

My setup has 6 QL corsair fans, and 3 asus fans in the AOI.


I have my 6 fans going into my RGB hub that came with 3 pack of QL fans, and the RGB hub plugged into the Corsair Commander pro, commander pro plugged into USB on mobo. THat should work without using a corsair lighting node? or am i just wrong here. Having some issues with all these fans

I purchased the Lian Li 011 Case, and that bitch biiiiig.

It was either fans or fill it with bobble head dolls.


ETA: Im sure you have some super sweet pokemon figurines inside your case, but its not my style.

The odds that you even get your money back from this before EIP 1559 is very unlikely

with the 6 cards i currently have running, my Biden Bucks investment will be met. my 3060Ti is almost "paid off". as long as BTC and ETH keep moving up, it won't take too much longer.

now, 2 of the cards may not be paid off, but i can live with that. that's part of the ride. they'll eventually be paid off.

ETH is over $3200 today.
