    Still would probably be better off buying the dedicated Bitcoin machines they have started making that you plug in via USB. :P

    $96 grand for what is nothing more than a Firepro S10000 with a Radeon bios?



    lol, somebody is a complete moron, the 7990 is not special, they've had the S10000 out for a while:

    got any info on that? (or mining with a titan?)
    since my rig is out of use when in my dorm and i don't have to pay for the power maybe i could make some lazy coins from it

    the titan is a slide rule compared to the ASICs, in the same way that APIs like DirectX cant compare to direct hardware access, generic hardware can't compete with hardware designed from the logic gate level on up for specific software routines

    Well I just finished building my brothers computer today and I must say I hate the Seasonic M12ll 520W short power cords, I can't run the 8pin CPU supplemental power cable through the back unless I have an extension -_-. But besides that it went well, and I also forgot to delete a recovery partition on the HDD I gave him since it was from a computer I scrapped and it kept booting up saying gateway haha.

    I have the same problem on my psu so I've resorted to temporarily running it across the front of the mobo.

    Yeah another thing is the front fan 3 pin cable is to short for the mobo so i made a quick extension myself with some wire and solder I got here but I ordered a few justt to have them and I ordered some extensions for PSU cables as this is becoming an annoyance haha but everything is up and running, I got his GPU OC'd and it runs great.

    hmm can't help but wonder if this is too good to be true.

    also how solid is linX as a stress test? (and if the Gflops are correct for the settings of the progam/clocks?)

    might be in a position to acquire that chip

    A. You are seriously fucking obsessed, please seek help dear friend!
    B. I bet unless you get the exact same motherboard as well, you won't achieve the same voltages, VRM, Mosfets, etc need to be decent on the motherboard otherwise that can also add voltage up.

    I've seen this chip earlier on tweakers.net, right? The new batch seems to be clocking crazy. Guy here passing prime95 for 1hour at 5GHz @ 1.206V..

    Well it just complety depends on the vdroop. E.g. going from a p8z77-v to a maximus v extreme orsomething, voltages shouldn't be different.

    Ha... And I can barely get 4.5GHz stable at 1.375Vcore.

    Actually, they can be, especially when you go to a board that is really honed in for overclockers.

    Err...nope : /

    You're going to get more phases and better voltage delivery/stability, but that chip's still gonna need exactly the same amount of vcore as before lol.

    The only real difference with top-grade boards (other than features) is when enthusiast-grade overclockers push voltages to disneyland and back (1.45v+ anyone?), that's where the improved VRM's/caps can help.

    A: old news
    B: should work fine with my new board.

    @faith, yeah that one dropped by on tweakers but some buyers didn't show up.

    in general the idea is just that i'd rather have a insane clocking chip since im likely to be stuck till atleast skylake on my 1155 socket.

    I got my brothers new build with the 3570k running solid at 4.5GHz at 1.275 Vcore right now, I'm going to see what I can push this to over the weekend Also I just landed a $10,000 job for 5 workstations for video editing and coding from a business owner I know plus he needs a small in house network setup etc. so I'm excited as all hell to get building and get his network running with a server.

    For the heck of it, I made Matlab calculate the inverse of an nxn (square) matrix with 1,225,000,000 elements.

    It's obviously after he was done calculating..
