Looks like a new heatsink. If they have any sense, the board is now mounted sideways, with the top and bottom fan working to together to blow air over the heatsink in the direction of the grooves. If the bottom fan is mounted to blow against the underside of the PCB, then, well, I cant imagine anyone being that stupid.



Good luck getting your molex in there.

What do you consider a good candidate as a lender?

maybe someone that doesn't nag him to withdraw 0.12 btc everyday for their bittleships addiction?


I'm pretty sure a guy needs more than .12btc to actually play that stupid game.  Its not like you're only going to click just one time.  It's like bringing a $5 to a casino.

I don't really understand the referral concept.

Since they're sending you their BTCs, why do you need to trust them?

The same way you need to trust the bank you get your mortgage from.

While I understand a large sum of money is involved in all of this, everyone needs to be very careful as to how this proceeds.  All information needs to be absolutely accurate.  I'm not saying either has been mentioned, but threats and/or violence is not the way forward. If this is indeed a minor and he does in fact live in California, a person needs to be very aware of contract law regarding miners there.  Ignoring the parents making good on the kid's debt, is there enough info in the forums that any police/court would do anything?

The other point I wish to make is obviously this individual was busy on the forums.  This thread is public and obviously visible to him/her as well.

Is this a sockpuppet by Maged to see if anyone will lend?
No, but that's a good idea... (if that ever happened, I would of course tell the truth if anyone asked this question, but I doubt it'd happen any time soon)

watch out for Maged! lol

You've been Maged!

I have been trying to delete this topic for a while now..I feel stupid :/
No idea who maged is :/

We don't like deleting topics unnecessarily, but you can lock your own topics if you wish, or PM one of us.  

Edit:  Broke the Maged train. 

Bad bear! Bad!

Have $200 Paypal that I need to turn into BTC! My recent trades are in my sig, as well as a link to my Bitcoin-OTC reputation!

I recognize a bunch of the names listed in your sig as references, but I know some of them only borrow, not lend.  In those instances, how are they references, since they would be the ones scamming you?

I dont doubt what you guys are saying.  Im sure in some situations the molex is a good idea. But to say its needed for any and all dual chips or more than 4 cards is complete bullshit. What should be said is they might be a good idea if your using cheap equipment or trying to run more cards than what your board was intended. If you have a decent board and psu that was designed for multiple cards you will not NEED the molex. Your equipment will run just fine without it and you will have saved yourself some money.

Ok.  Here's what it boils down to.. the PCIE spec allows for up to 75watts to be pulled through a PCIE slot.  Most cards only pull 25watts, with your higher end/dual gpu cards pulling the full amount.  Some board manufacturers will cut corners and think "They won't use all 6 PCIE slots at one time, so we'll only account for 150 watts for that" and go cheap.   Then you go and use risers to make more cards fit than what would normally and before you know it, you've got 6x25=150watts of draw.  Ok, not an issue.  The board the designed for 150 watts.  If any of those cards starts pulling more than 25watts and the board was made cheaply, you're screwed.

See how both sides can actually be right in this situation?  It really comes down to your exact mix of hardware.  So you run 6x5830s.  We all know different brands run their cards slightly different.  One person's 6x5830 might pull more than a different person's 6x5830s.  Its easier to make a blanket statement about using molex than it is to go and explain all of this, especially to n00bs. 

That being said, I think 22.95 for a riser is a bit much, although I have bought some when I couldn't get them elsewhere.

No, he failed but I have someone coming over tomorrow morning (once I add macos to the machine) and will fund btc via paxum->bitinstant->Mtgox right as its sold.
Any updates??? I'm sure you have other stuff you can sell to get the money Sad

That is why you have two.  [Most] everyone is given a get out of jail free card from birth.  It is just a matter of when you use it.
1692  Economy / Long-term offers / Re: First Pirate Savings and Trust on: February 05, 2012, 09:49:09 PM
Indeed, and it was 1300 BTC. New order or a lot of cash outs?

I needed a new JetSki. Smiley

I didn't know you could operate a JetSki in sand.

250 BTC sent  Smiley

Current availability is: 195 btc. Huh?

it was arranged as a special via PM due to my offer terms maybe

I got busy and forgot to edit the OP.

I have a question. Does the dividend percentage start at 1% for each new chunk at the time of deposit, or is it carried over from other deposits?

If you have a regular ongoing deposit system, then I'll associate it all together.  If you deposit 10 btc, wait until you're at the 6% rate, then ask to deposit 250 btc, I'm inclined to treat them as separate investments.  The point of the higher rates is to encourage long term growth, late disproportionate investments run contrary to that.

I've got btc and would consider $150 in btc for both.

I would rather put it in a friends PC at cut a 50/50 deal.  This thing makes $30 a month on stock clocks.  



I run a couple rigs for people using their cards and split if that's what you really want to do.

It really all depends on the draw of the cards.  With 5830s you can get away with having 5 in a board, but seriously, you'll know when you're trying to pull too much through the motherboard. The cards will run like crap, the board will be super hot, and at some point, the system will stop working all together.
