Totally didn’t notice this but Arctic makes a dual fan that would work well

Forum Topic "The Plan"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

One thing I should note is your cards pcb places the power delivery on the left of the Gpu die meaning they will get very little airflow due to the g12 fan on the right, cause of this I wouldn’t recommend going with the g12 (unless you can ghetto rig a fan for it on the left) but something more like this, not the best for looks but other than that it’s a really good cooler for the money, comes with mini heatsinks for vram, power delivery so they don’t over heat and the fans on the cooler connect to the card so you can still control them in something like Msi afterburner. Recently I helped someone else on here ( user aymenh265 ) pick this cooler out and install it on their overheating gtx 1080 and as far as I know it worked out very well for them.

Edit: I also saw that Instagram post about the g12 :)

That guy is mad at the wrong people, one person buying just two cards would have no affect on the prices.

possibly SLI as I have another 980 ti on hand,

Man I wish I had a 980ti just laying around, no joke that’s a great deal on the 980ti you got, want to sell me the other one you have? ;)

bengy22 4 Builds 3 points 8 days ago

Crypto isn't the only factor in gpu prices, and probably will not be gone for a long time, also it would have to fall really bad for people to stop mining them.

Also a more color neutral cooler design and rgb leds, also usually resale value is higher with it.

Funny how that works, would have needed it sooner than a few weeks ago though, got the extra about three months ago after windows kept closing my games with 12gb so I was in a rush to get more.

bengy22's Completed Build: Arctic Storm

bengy22 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

Thanks, i was really happy with the build while it looked like this! Since then iv'e sold the 390 and picked up a 970 for about half the price with the idea of getting a 980ti used for a good price but now i'm thinking what ever new nvidia releases this year is what i will get :) While i do agree the mark s motherboard wouldn't have fit in the build well i do think the build would have gone a different direction with it to more complement it. If you want take a look at the last photo to see a more accurate picture of how the build is right now, but iv'e even since then have added a extra 4x2gb kit of ram.

Visually, the Gaming and SC don’t seem that different but I suppose there’s more going on under the hood.

That’s what I thought when I got the card, just thought the sc had a higher core clock but it didn’t seem worth for $20 more. When comparing the cards the gaming has what can only be described as a intel stock cooler on it while the sc has a actual Gpu heatsink with heatpipes, from what I can tell it doesn’t make much of a difference unless your case doesn’t have much airflow which is ironic cause most people will not get this card unless you have a case that takes advantage of its size but then those cases usually don’t have good airflow.

Forum Topic "Should gamers and self builders take up cryptocurrency mining?"

bengy22 4 Builds 4 points 10 days ago

Actually by more people mining it does raise the demand but also raises the difficulty so the profitability goes down.

Forum Topic "Should gamers and self builders take up cryptocurrency mining?"

bengy22 4 Builds 3 points 10 days ago

I don't think cpu mining with the 4790 is very profitable but the 970 is, personally i mine using my 970 when i'm not on my pc or just on the web and right now i'm making $1.75 a day or about $54 a month, this is extremely volatile and just today iv'e seen my earnings go from $1.25 to $2.25, i paid $160 for the 970 back in September and i paid it off by the end of the year, would have made a lot more if i sold my bitcoin when it was at 19k but i'm going to hold out for a while. Yes it does put stress on the card but as long as the temps are fine the worst that can happen is a fan going bad and in my case my card mine is under warranty for almost one year from evga so if i have any problems i can just send it in, i don't know about gigabytes warranty though.

Forum Topic "witch card should I get wen the price goes back down"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 10 days ago

By the time prices go down nvidia might have unveiled new cards so it’s hard to say, the s340 down have bad airflow, just put two 120mm fans in the front and you will have no problems.

Even if your buying from microcenter your probably going to over pay by a lot, mine had 5 1080ti strix's for $1,189 and they where all gone in one day, as far as i know the discount isn't available any more so people paid full price too.

I didn't know that, just thought more cores = better for editing, good to know cause i plan on going with a 1700 over a 8600k but i think i'm going to stick with the 1700 for better future upgrades and to save a little money.

Personally i'd go with a ryzen cpu if your doing more cpu intensive tasks.

Do you have intake fans in your s340? (how many also how many exhaust fans?), has the 1080 always been running hot or did you just now notice?

I try to check online every few hours but honestly i don't want to pay over $325 for a 980ti, i think i'm just going to hold of till the summer and see what nvidia has to offer or at least get a good deal on a 1080ti.

Some guy on Letgo was selling a 980ti for $250 and i offered $220, he said he would have taken my offer but someone was driving 2 hours away and offered $180 which he took, said he would have felt bad to make the guy drive that far for nothing, if only i checked 1 hour earlier :/ (this was in December).

Kinda frustrated that back in October i would have thought $799 was too much for that card but now even a V56 is going for that much. I didn't even know you could move the plate to the back, much less any anything else, good to know definitely going to rear more about the case.

Just noticed the Vega 64 lc tubes are longggg, how much did you pay for that card? I like the r6, seriously thinking of getting it when the white one comes out along with updating my whole pc, any reason you took off the metal plate on the right side of the window on the inside?

Honestly i'd just sell it on here, ebay, or r/hardwareswap, you would be giving someone a ok deal and get your money back if you sold it for how much you paid + shipping and paypal fees.
