Deaf people seem to have a reason to worry as well. :-(

Gotcha, that I will do, and well, I've started the battle with the new bad boy, but so far it's winning. Started a new thread on it, not much yet in it, but will detail my struggles, it currently has 7 GTX750Ti SC's in it (plan eventually on installing a total of 10, if it can handle it), but my initial issue is getting it to finish up the BIOS boot process. I _wish_ I could have 4 1080's or even 1070's in it, but I think that they may be too much for the USB - PCI-E 1x adapters, that's why I'm sticking with the 750s. Well, back to the battle, Game On!

Usually, without a custom PCI-e controller/splitter, you'll likely hit the wall at 8 GPU's in most cases (though you may get lucky as it's an OS limit, not a hardware 1).

Cheers.

I also wouldn't run a GTX 660Ti with a pair of 8400GS's, but that's just my opinion.

I wouldn't bother with a 8400GS at all.

I wouldn't either, but then again I'm long overdue to replace a couple of GTX 5xx series cards here.

Both are Mac's and there are well known problems in that area ATM sadly ever since MB V8's intro. Thankfully they're only a <7% problem. ;-)

Still.

I find it derogatory and offensive that my account gets labeled as a sock puppet account 2 posts in.

Actually it hasn't been, but I can see how you may have felt so, though you were not the target of either Gary's or betreger's posts.

Once you've been around long enough you'll get use to Dull Worm (or whatever else he wishes to call himself on a certain week these days) and who others are actually replying too. ;-)

Cheers.

Dull, who once a worm did you take meds on a Sat. evening?

Seems an awful like someone has a new sock puppet.

See...
I would have said that...
It seems an awful lot like someone has a new sock puppet.

I would guess Gary, you being an Accountant, that Language is not your strong suit.
Maybe you're not even a Mathematician, but rather an Arithmetician.

I see B.E.N as a Rapper.

guido, they're not replying to you, just the idiot that use to be known as a "Dull Worm" who posted before you (he has had so many name changes these days that most can't keep up with them), so don't take those replies personally as they're not directed at you. ;-)

400-450W PSU would be better than a 300W job and make sure that it has a single 12v rail and not a duel rail job (duel 12v rails can be a big problem when using GPU's powered by just the motherboard).

Cheers.

CLYDE, time for you to start reading what people actually say, rather than what you think they are saying.



+ a lot

+ lots more

+ mega lots more again.

It must be hard to be as %^&$!@ as a %^&*#. ;-)

Wow, I was hoping for more from the 1060's, they are still behind the 1070 in credit/watt-hour. Looks like we'll have to wait till they release (hopefully) the 1050Ti, and see if that can take the crown back from the 1070. Especially if the price can be competitive eventually with the 750, though that will probably take a while to drop to that level. I am just finishing setting up my new dual 1060 system, it'll be interesting to see how they do in a pair. Still need to read up on the best way to configure them, lots of .xml editing it seems to get the most out of them, above the standard Lunatics install.

Just remember that the 1060 is still much younger than the 1070 so there arn't anywhere near enough of them out there yet to be a good indicator so in actual fact they are making a good impact so far and could still wind up being the next 750Ti.

Just be a little more patient until the numbers even out a bit more. ;-)

Cheers.

1) What does the video card have to do with it?

It shouldn't have anything to do with it, as the BIOS & other things show 16GB installed.
However your video cards have 4GB of RAM each, and you are missing 8GB from the Task Manager, so it would be interesting to see if removing a video card had any impact on memory availability as far as the Operating System is concerned.

Just try it as there is a few principles here that could be involved there.

Also, do you have the slowest RAM installed in the 1st slot of each memory channel?

Cheers.

The time I spend with depends a lot on my mood and what I'm doing at the time so most are very brief (in various forms) while a few may take 20-30mins if I'm that bored and need a good laugh. ;-)

Playing with them on loud speaker with a few friends around (while enjoying a few beers) are usually the funniest 1's though. :-D

We had another very foggy start to the day (9C felt like 7C) on the top of the hill here after a night of drizzle (6mm) and currently 11C (and still feels like 7C) as the wind blows on this overcast cast day.

I doubt that we'll reach our expected max of 14C today though (we've missed most of them here this winter) and more drizzle is expected today (if it can get up this hill that is), but hopefully tomorrow and the weekend will turn out as good as they expect.

Cheers.

I get 1 or 2 of these per month (claiming to be from Microsoft or Telstra) here and I'm quite surprised that my landline number hasn't been blacklisted by them yet with all the crap I've pulled on them over the years. :-D

Well I do make sure that they're thoroughly and vigorously rinsed when emptied (I know, pretty obvious), then just before filling they go through boiling water with Chlorinated Trisodium Phosphate in it (known here as Pink Stain Remover or NEO Pink, 1 teaspoon per 2 litres), then vigorously rinse, prime then fill.

Double layered rubber gloves are a must also Mike and I use the end of a big old wire handled bottle brush to submerse and extract the bottles, but the bottles are still pretty hot while vigorously draining them (I can tell you that hot hands do result in some vigorous (my word for the day) swearing at times, but I've never got any blisters out of it).

I think that I might go and make myself a rum'n'lime now.

Cheers.

Just having a short break while waiting for my sterilised bottles to cool down.

How does, "drinking beer and having a bloody good time", sound?

We do that as often as we can around this village. :-D

I'm sure that if it doesn't turn out well then Coopers will be getting a lot of complaints and urging to change it back Grant.

Anyhow, I better finish this ciggy/coffee break, then get back in there to rinse and prime them before another short. ;-)

Cheers.

Has anyone heard from King Tut lately?
I'm surprised he's not here celebrating.

He was last heard from here and his main rig hasn't been in contact with the servers here or over at beta since last month.

[edit] His ARM device still has 5 tasks to do though.

Cheers.

Posted 15 days ago by Profile Wiggo "Socialist"
1st of all you need to stop Windows 10 from updating your device drivers with those supplied by Microsoft (which are usually missing something, OpenCL support in this case).

http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/stop-automatic-driver-updates-windows-10

Then you need to rollback the driver to your last working 1 in the Device Manager, hopefully. If that doesn't work then just download and install the driver from Nvidia's own website.

Cheers.

After a frosty and foggy start (0C felt like -3C), it has been a great sunny day outside for a change to get some long overdue jobs (due to the weather here) done.

Currently 14C (feels like 11C) as a bit of broken cloud starts to move in, but 16C is expected.

After that it's back to unusually wet weather again. :-(

Cheers.

Other than bringing in the washing off the line, I have the gutters, tank filters and overflows all cleaned as well as getting the weeds sprayed this morning.

All just in time for a LLB and then that washing should be dry by then.

Then it can rain as much as it likes for the next 2 days and then I'll be down visiting my baby sister for her 50th birthday & party down south with what's left of the rest of the family (sadly it's not all that often we can all get together these days with the distances involved). :-)

Cheers.
