The issue with that theory is that he has email communication from the seller about shipping AFTER the second transaction with a planned shipping date.

I think you're misunderstanding that clause. It says "If you use PayPal IN a seller's store location" where it's talking about collecting items in person. I read this as if you were in a physical store, and paid with PayPal.  The assumption being that you would pick up the item at the time of purchase.

Final results are in after BIOS updates to the $25 Biostar board that houses my i5-6400 and hours of hardware swaps and tests:


I have one dead ASUS Z710-A motherboard and one dead 80+ gold 750w PSU


Crazy thing is the PSU that had water pouring out of it is perfectly fine, the one that was still running when power was pulled wont turn on now. The 1070 that was dead last night resurrected itself after I took it apart last night apparently.

It also depends on how dedicated the idea you are.  I started out with cards I had and added in my first 1080 Ti because I figured even if I didn't hit ROI I would have a cheaper than MSRP upgrade.  I still in the back of my mind have the idea that I can more easily dump the 1080 Tis should I need to vs a 1060 or RX 570 should I decide it's not worth it to me to mine in a month or two. (And yes I realize there would be many of them one the market, but I'm willing to sell at a "loss" if I've already made the money back.)  


There's also how you mine to consider.  Personally I'm lazy, hate tracking even 10 different coin values and can't be bothered as this is a fun hobby and excuse to buy more hardware, not my sole source of income so I don't mine and keep various alt coins, I either auto convert to one of the 4 options I can cash out at coinbase or use Nicehash to sell my processing power.  


As far as simple Nicehash has been the easiest brain dead way to end up with BTC in a wallet and USD in the bank for me but every system has flaws and they had a huge one back in December with a hack and loss of over 4500 BTC (.085ish of which was mine) but have come back with a free withdraw to coinbase from internal wallets option that has me transferring from them daily with relatively low risk.  I just don't get the reward of mining the next coin that goes crazy and making crazy money (I also don't have to worry about whatever I mine being worthless either), just some money and still more than enough to fund the hobby.


So yeah...preference.  


TLDR: your choice how you do it and there's not a simple "this is the best answer"

+1,.. that sucks.


I have an open window in front of my folding rig also,.. but with a 1" pleated filter in the window for dust, snow,.. never thought about blowing rain.  :unsure:

It's honestly crazy , there's a storm windows on the outer part that's 3/4 open and the screen is relatively fine and usually stops rain no problem.  I've lived in this house and had this window open often with either my desk or hers with a PC in that exact spot for over 10 years and NEVER had it come close to getting anything wet.  


I still haven't touched the stuff again, (sleep and other plans for today) At least the 1070 and motherboard I both HATED for various reasons so that's cool.
