what a ...colossal monument to endless human stupidity, this concept, this...thing that this massive power-sucking array of hardware is actually doing, lol.
Agreed. Imagine every single human on earth running a setup like that picture, not just the "elite" disciples of the religion of crypto. All civilizations would collapse due to collective power grid failures.

I'm surprised environmentalists aren't up in arms about this flagrant electrical pollution. At least plastic straws let you drink something. The monstrosity in the picture literally does nothing.

That's not quite true. It's making money for someone.

Eh, same thing as this monstrosity (stock exchange data center):

Or this one (Visa's datacenter):

It is sad to see all those 3080s that won't go into the hands of jonesing gamers though.

Look what I found. Followed me home
True facts. It's so pretty!
oh can i play this game too?


:X

I’ll admit that I had second thoughts after I got mine, but then I installed it. Don’t install it if you are on the fence.
You have no idea how hard it is NOT to flip them and wait patiently for waterblocks.
Basically im sitting on them waiting for Waterblocks.... SIGH....

Pretty sure no one has any sympathy for you. 99% of the people who want these cards cannot obtain them and you're flexing TWO cards and then complaining about waterblocks? have some self awareness dude...smh

that's not really doing anything though--"making money for someone" is, paradoxically, not really doing anything imo. Harvesting finite resources so some dude can make nickles on every dollar he spends.

aigomorla, love it. I had to "settle' for a Gigabyte RX 6800. I had a custom watercooled 5900x(Optimus wb) with a RAD VII custom watercooled (EK block).

Was able to source the 5900x (yes paid a premium) but the 6000 series cards were a lot harder. Was going to hold out for a 6800XT but when the 6800 became available at a good price I jumped on it.

I reworked my loop lastnight to take out the RAD VII and replace it with the aircooled RX 6800. I have a Corsair XR7-480 rad and a Coolstream thin 360 rad all pumped by a EK D5-140 pump/res combo.

I pre-ordered from Performance PC an Alphacool wb for the RX6800.

The 6800 is significantly faster than the RAD VII in benchmarks. I can only imagine how crazy fast your 6900XT or 3090 are.
