Time to sell those old AMD cards!

08 June 2017 - 01:32 PM

Because of the second wave of Bitcoin mining, AMD cards are skyrocketed in price. I just sold an R9 290 I had laying around for $250 on ebay. Just last month it was worthless. I suggest anyone who isn't mining to sell their cards and wait a few months when the VEGA comes out. Buy the new stuff and laugh at those suckers who spent more than the card was worth.

Thoughts on the AMD Threadripper?

31 May 2017 - 12:45 PM

Looks like more information has come out about AMD new chip. So far the official name is Threadripper and is not a codename. A good marketing strategy for AMD because Intel has always (last 10+ years) been known for crushing it when it came it heavy tasks like video encoding or data crunching.


Reading more about it and seeing the X399 4094-pin socket, I can only guess so much. So far it seems two Summit Ridge dies are being slapped together to produce the Threadripper. Summit Ridge from what I can tell is just a revised Zen microarchitecture found in the Ryzen. Just think of two 1800X put together and you have a Threadripper. The big concern I have (besides heat) is generally when it comes to multiple CPUs (dual sockets) a small amount of latency is introduced. This is not traditionally a problem when it comes to servers that are constantly crunching big numbers. In fact the trade off is nonexistent in many circumstances but when it comes to games I think we will see a dip in performance compared to a 1800X because of extra latency.


What are peoples thoughts on this?

Trying to log into internet modem

09 March 2017 - 09:07 PM

So I bought a Arris SB6190 Modem because the one from Charter was garbage. It's all setup and works great but I want to get into the modem and check the signal. The manual says but it does not work.


Does anyone know another reason why I cannot ping that address?


I've tried all the major ones listed below. None ping back or work in the browser so I'm at a loss. Now i'm trying to ping every ip from to's going to take awhile.

Setting up simple file share in Windows 2012

17 February 2017 - 04:33 PM

I'm back in need of more help!


So it seems the Ubuntu / Samba server thing I tried to do this whole week is a bust since the LSI card isn't support and just kept locking the system up and causing errors in disk reading. Fast forward the whole day, I got Windows Server 2012 installed (working normally) and created a test folder to be shared but thats where my luck ran out.


I can't seem to get the drive to share without having to type in a login and password. I just simply want to create a shared folder that does not require logins. Does anyone have a solution for Windows 2012?!


I must be missing a simple step in the wizard setup....
