    Bushnell something but any Bushnell is going to be good. I bought mine off ebay and it's been perfect for years now. Even Aldi sold one last month. They're all basically the same unless you buy one of the very very latest which has a detachable GPS and shot tracker.

    Watercooled 3080/3090 VRAM temps - Copper Shim installation

    So I gave in and stopped trying to make the Alphacool block work. I'm convinced it is poorly designed as far as cooling the memory is concerned Here is the card the block is above it. Here is the card with the block on it It simply doesn't distribute the water over where the RAM is...

    not trying to get you a new job, was only going to offer advice on the salary. LinkedIn was just a way for you to contact me more privately. I am a freelance consultant with 40 years in IT with similar experience to yours so can offer advice on what you are worth.

    Is everyone's home PC just an internet and gaming machine?

    I have multiple computers at home. They are all water-cooled and have crap cpus and decent second-hand gpus such as 1070s or 1080s. They are used for [email protected] to hopefully cure Cancer, Alzheimer's, COVID, etc. Has cost me a fortune in electricity although I have now stopped them all having...

    Watercooling Build - Overclock ???

    Looks great but with all your fans exhausting the air, where does the cool air come from? You should really have slightly more intakes than exhausts as this produces positive case pressure keeping air from being sucked in through every nook and cranny. With negative case pressure (as you have)...

    The Rise and Fall of Donald Trump

    It seems to have grown exponentially since the arrival of the World Wide Web and Social Media in particular. I suspect that a huge amount of the disinformation is sown from abroad to spread discord and distrust. And also sadly, some people spread disinformation because they think it's funny. It...

    Watercooled 3080/3090 VRAM temps - Copper Shim installation

    UPDATE! She lives! spent some time trying to diagnose why the card was dead. Drained and connected up just the cpu, refilled. Tried a 670. Didn't get seen. Removed the vertical PCIE extender and tried again with the 670. Saw it but as a Microsoft Basic VGA adapter. Tried a 1070. Saw it OK...

    Watercooled 3080/3090 VRAM temps - Copper Shim installation

    Update: This morning, the 3080 is no longer in device manager and there is no display whatsoever. My PC works off its internal cpu graphics. Having completed yesterday my 10 billionth point for [email protected], perhaps it is time to stop. I have a reference water-cooled 1070 lying around so will...

    Golf Thread

    I've got to stop watching golf instruction videos on YouTube! They're doing my head in as I watch one, think it looks like an answer to all my golf prayers and make me a scratch player, and all it really does is ruin my actual game. The simplest way to improve your scores is course management...

    Watercooled 3080/3090 VRAM temps - Copper Shim installation

    it's very thin already and would need to go down very evenly across four interconnected rectangles by the same amount.the big problem is the amount of time and error it would take to get it to where it needs to be. If anyone wants it to try with their card, I will happily send on. When I had it...

    Watercooled 3080/3090 VRAM temps - Copper Shim installation

    TLDR. shim does not work with my block and card. basically there is no contact with the core if the shim is in place. I have gone back to some Gelid 1mm pads on the ram but am still seeing 90c on the ram when mining.

    Watercooled 3080/3090 VRAM temps - Copper Shim installation

    quite right, the top is at 90 degrees to the base. Bit naughty to sell like this but I'm sure it's an honest mistake.

    Watercooled 3080/3090 VRAM temps - Copper Shim installation

    Should be starting this tomorrow. As a benchmark I have fired up NiceHash and while the GPU toddles along at 975MHz and a hotspot of 47C, the RAM at 9751MHz has a Memory Temperature (GPU-Z 2.45.0) of 96C. I plan to make as few unnecessary changes to the loop as possible but I will be replacing...

    Robert Jordan’s fantasy epic The Wheel of Time coming to TV

    I get that this is being described as "another turning of the cycle" so not the exact same events as in the books but I think that's just a retcon. Rand is immediately identifiable as looking Aiel the moment he leaves the Two Rivers. It's remarked on by Loial first, then by Gawyn, then by...

    UEFA Champions & Europa League Football Thread ** spoilers ** [3rd - 5th May 2022]

    Liverpool were in a downhill section after being the most successful side in English football history and then selling the club to a pair of Canutes. Once they had been run out of town, the club was fortunately very well run and managed.
