Hey guys, have been messing with cards for the past week whenever I have any down time. Pretty much playing with a deck and trying stuff I've learned for 5+ hours a day. My hands are super achy with a bit of pain. The last bend? on my index fingers have bruises, and the rest of my fingers are generally just achy and feel awkward. I've had problems in my past with tendinitis/hand pain, is this normal in the learning process or should I be worried? I stretch my hands pretty often and try to take breaks but the pain is worrying to me.
Any advice appreciated : )
What's up guys, been pretty depressed the past couple weeks because of GPU prices, and banging my head against a wall for thinking to wait on buying more GPUs.
Decided to do some very low IQ googling on modding GPUs to add more VRAM because my nice hot air station and soldering iron haven't been getting any work, and found some interesting threads on modding GPUs.
I lost a thread on a guy who desoldered Micron memory and soldered on Samsung successfully, but it makes me VERY ambitious. I have an old r9 270 2GB laying around, and I'm planning on desoldering the memory off of it and resoldering 4/8GB of Samsung memory onto it. The memory is pretty cheap, running around 6 bucks on eBay, and I would need 8 of them. Soldering 8 BGA chips doesn't sound fun at all, but it sounds like a really cool thing to test out.
Do you guys have any insight on this? Will post updates after I order and get the replacement memory.
This person comments saying that it's definitely possible, and you can switch brands as long as all of the memory is the same brand. I assume if I just flash the BIOS with the new brand it should be easy peasy. I'm not exactly too sure what specs exactly matter for mining(Clock speed, memory speed, memory size). Will try this for fun because I don't have much to do for the next couple weeks.
What's up guys, I'm in available 6 pin poverty on my psu and was wondering how much wattage I should expect a PCIe riser to use.
Google has general answers to this, but I feel like my situation is somewhat different(I guess).
I have the TB250-BTC Pro, which has molex connectors on the Motherboard to give power to the PCIe slots(sidenote: I have a 2 psu rig, should I use my secondary PSU to give power to these slots to keep the GPUs, PCIe risers, and the molex connections on the same power rail?). Does giving power to these connectors make it so my PCIe risers don't need to draw as much power?
Can I full jank my setup and use 6 pin Y splitters to power multiple risers? Google hasn't given me much help for these questions, appreciate any advice ya'll have regarding it.
edit: Also I'm using 14 AWG cables, which claim they are rated for 250 watts. Not sure if that changes anything
Hey guys, jw what I could have done wrong on my Iphone. I replaced the front screen/digitizer and now GPS is no longer working. Everything else is completely fine, and from some Google searching it seems like I didn't touch the GPS at all. Is there something dumb I did that makes the GPS no longer work? Thanks for any advice : )
Hey guys, made a post earlier but I just don't have a great understanding of FPGAs, MCUs, and their relation to sending digital video over usb 3.0. I see modern capture cards using this, which I do understand. But when I look at some capture units, specifically USB 2.0 ones, they just have a transceiver hooked up to the USB. Is there a reason for this? I assume if you want to send a large amount of data (uncompressed 1080p60) over USB then having an FPGA that can actually manage that much data is crucial. If I want to send less data, such as 480p60, could I just have a basic transceiver hooked up to a USB 3.0 controller like the cypress ez-usb?
Sorry for being brand new and not having a great understanding, I do this as a hobby and finding documentation regarding this specific problem is pretty hard. Made a previous thread but realized that using an FPGA to drive 480p seems like overkill.
Would appreciate any advice
I have an IC that only accepts data in FIFO format. I'm trying to pass digital video (RGB) through it, but I really can't figure out what fifo.. actually is. I understand the idea of first in first out, but not what that means relative to data. I can't find anything on converting digital video, or and data into FIFO. Can someone drop some knowledge? tysm :)
