1  Economy / Service Discussion / Are MtGox scammers? on: January 14, 2013, 10:13:14 PM
I've been mining bitcoins and then trading them on mtgox for while but slowly gave up on it. Finally last month I decided that since I wasn't doing anything with it, I would cash out, especially since xmas was approaching. I sold my coins and withdraw the cash to a bank account, having to do it twice over 2 days to avoid their daily limits.

Well, now it's a month later and still no sign of my money. I just get messages from them saying that my transfer is being processed and they'll keep my informed. Sorry, but a month is way too long to process a transfer so I can only assume they've just taken the money and stringing along bullshit. Can anyone else confirm that this is what they are now doing?
2  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / start mining with screensaver / monitor power down on: September 24, 2011, 10:04:53 AM
Is there a way to set mining start up when the screen saver or monitor power down activates?
I'm using Guiminer atm on a gaming rig, and all to often forget to start the mining up after I finish gaming.
3  Bitcoin / Mining support / 1x with riser not working on: July 07, 2011, 09:33:28 AM
I've already setup one computer onto a 1x slot with a 1x to 1x riser cable and it works fine, running a 6950 off it. It did not need any bridging to be done on the motherboard 1x slot.

Trying to do to the same on another computers with 5850's, but it's not working. If i try to bridge as I've seen in a few guides, then the computer won't boot up. If I leave the bridge off, but the card connected, the system boots up, but doesn't detect the 2nd GPU, I've tried with both dummy plug and monitor plugged in.

Am I missing something or does anyone have any suggestions?

4  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / gpu bracket? on: June 16, 2011, 04:23:29 AM
I don't have enough room on my motherboard, or even in my case, for a 3rd, and possibly 4th, video card.
My plan is to use riser cables, but still not sure how I can secure the card. I'd prefer to build some sort of bracket to hold it, and prefer that it could be put in the case somewhere as well. It's wide enough that it they can probably sit on the case's side panel when it's closed up.

This is my hybrid gaming rig, so I'd prefer it all be closed up, otherwise would just leave them out in the open.

Anyone got any suggestions or advice?
5  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / PCIE splitters on: June 13, 2011, 06:00:19 AM
I remember reading a post about someone that used a pcie splitter to connect 3 GPU's to a single PCIe slot, but can't find it again.

Does anyone know how successful this is, and where I might be able to buy such splitters?
6  Bitcoin / Mining / YA rig question - gaming / mining on: June 08, 2011, 04:33:54 AM
I was planning on buying a gaming rig in the near future, but after hearing about bitcoin, decided to change it so that it could do mining as well.
The basic system is n i5-2500k,

8 gig G.Skill Ram 1600

1 SSD, 1 5400 sata drive and a dvd burner.

The case I was planning on going with is a Antec 300 illusion

Originally when I was going for gaming it was going to be a midrange graphic card and PSU to match.

With mining though, I was starting to think maybe 3x 6950 but I have no idea how much PSU I would need, and don't know if they will all fit in the case and on that motherboard.

Can anyone sugguest what PSU I would need, or if I should use 2 PSU and if so will they slot into that case or will I need one that supports 2 PSU?
Alternatively, if there a better combination of video cards to use with a different case or motherboard?

As I said, primarily I want it for gaming, so don't want to deviate from the base system too much, but want to add on better mining ability, which could then be sold off when the bubble burst and still leave me with a gaming rig Wink

Thanks!
