Here's a Mainboard for a Samsung UN40D5550RFXZA 40" TV, the board is a BN94-04513B, main chip is covered by a simple heatsink, later model Samsung TVs have more extensive heatsinks of course.
Some use thermal adhesive, some use pins or screws and thermal compound like on a cpu.

Like this one from a model UN55JS7000FXZA 55" Samsung TV(BN94-09269A (BN97-10061R))...

Or this one from a model UN55C6300SF 55" TV(BN41-01438B)...

Or this one from a model UN55FH6003FXZA 55" TV(BN41-01937)...

Ok I installed the new cable, and the other 3 cables. I'll have to look for some black aluminum heatsinks in one of the boxes here.

Next month or whenever I'm ready, I'm springing for a 1070 ti card, something from Amazon, then I can work on this PC here during an outage, I'll be changing out 5 fans, adding a fan hub and cable.

So which will I go for?

I'm not sure, I'm torn between an Asus, or an EVGA, or an MSI, or a Gigabyte...



Why am I torn? My PC case, crappy as it is, I don't want heat dumped into the case, since heat rises, the cpu radiator would pick that heated air up.

I like the ones that resemble a strix, but the ones that looks like the EVGA would I think work better in My tower case.

The Asus 1070 Ti Turbo being the exception, as the vent on the back is not big enough, nor is the Nvidia version.

You know where I stand. I prefer EVGA just because of their extend warranties. I've replaced around 8 or so cards over the years.

I understand about cost thou. The hybrid version of the 1070ti would help with that but it's at least $80 more than the base 1070Ti. So, probably not an option.

And it's also about the weight, the case here resembles the Monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey, My right shoulder isn't what it used to be, since I had dislocated the joint once.

I do know about EVGA, I have an X79 Dark motherboard, an excellent bios too.

If I had a Thermaltake X5 case, then it'd be a Strix or the Gigabyte for sure, right now I'm waiting for an Liheap check, in 2017 I got $343, and for February to get here, when I can pour in another $118, I have $130 on an Amazon reloadable gift card, soon to be $135 thanks to bing.com searches on January 3rd, if I lived elsewhere I'd just get a credit on the electric bill, but not being an SCE/DWR customer, people in the park who apply get a check instead.

Liheap is the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

If you would stop wasting your $'s on junk you'd have all the tyres that you need for that unsuitable car that you have and a RAC that looks like that you're actually doing something Vic.

BTW, if you don't like this post then stop posting your never ending story of what will hopefully be in your little world (which may happen but rarely does in fact).

I'm sorry Vic, but you have to face facts before you lose it all, as well as driving the rest of us crazy with your complete incompetence to control your limited budget.

I'll also be back next year buddy. ;-)

Cheers.

If I were incompetent I would be homeless by now, since I'm not, I'm not.

Oh and the tires are all taken care of back in November.

Mind you I keep a budget in a text file, and I stick to that budget.

Well that will change asap Wiggo, but I have to wait for a check to come in from the Liheap program, and for February to get here, and the last post was about the TV, not a 1070 Ti.

We all know that it's that silly buggered TV I'm talking about as well as all that old kit that you wasted $'s on over the years Vic that's never been used, but now you've gone from a way over priced 6GB 1060 to a 1070Ti, when will your madness end?

[BTW, I moved this reply here to save the Cafe from further pollution on this silly never ending saga of yours.]

Cheers.

Well right now I have a -226 error going on and I can't do any work, I've reinstalled Boinc, to no effect, now I'm trying the video driver, which is 376.33 WHQL for Win 7 Pro x64, I'd checked for malware, nothing.

I reset the PC, I was able to do some work, but I'm also getting a -3 error too, in addition to the -226, I'm loading the browser, so I paused Boinc for a few minutes while it loads.

Ok I fired up the PNY LC 580 video card at 657MHz, 200MHz slower than normal, and everything went smoothly last night, then I fired it up in a test this morning, same thing, crunching numbers like normal, I'll conduct a test later on too, what may have made the -226 and -3 errors?

Clocking My card up to full speed of 857MHz, why?

I've no idea, I think I'll just leave it there, and asap just replace it, I'll get a lighter card, that is more energy efficient 180w vs 300w, which will make My electric bill a bit smaller.
