5 out of 5 eggs A huge big massive card truly great for mining coins. 04/09/2017

This review is from: GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GV-N108TAORUS-11GD 11GB 352-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card

Pros: It is only 20 dollars more then the 1080 ti Fe models. It mines ZEC coins so well it is amazing. It does 725h for Zec and the 1080 ti FE models do 660h. Runs cool 3 large quiet fans work well. As a miner first and a rare gamer I can say this is the best card I have ever owned for mining ZEC coin.

Cons: Big Heavy card. Also so wide it is a 3 slot card not a two slot card. I lay my board parallel to the ground so weight is not an issue for me. But normal cases the weight is going to case problems. It uses two 8 pin cables make sure you use 2 different cables to feed it.

Other Thoughts: I have one of these. I have one 1080 ti FE card and I have a zotac 1080 mini I wish I had 3 of these instead.


Pros: I got this from newegg on that famous site that does auctions. Even though newegg has a store there last this I mention that name it was bumped. E..y newegg store had it on sale so I got it for less but still from newegg.

I am not going to lie and say it games great frankly I am older and don't game. But I am a geek been a geek for a long time. I mine with this card and it is my first nvidia card that I will mine with. I am getting 510-526 and my entire rig is using 175 watts at the kwatt meter. I like those numbers. I run windows 7 pro. I have a biostar z170 mobo and intel i5 6400t a 4gb stick of crucial ddr4 ram

Cons: Price could always cost less then it does.

Other Thoughts: Gpus are back on the mining scene and nvidia seems to have the inside track on mining zec.
the card is running at 50c with 60% fans speed. I set power at 70% on msi afterburner. I did a long review with photos on a site I hang out on. Very happy with this card. I also ordered an aorus 1080ti from newegg this time the actual newegg website.

that come friday I will link the two card on the same mobo and do a review on bitcointalk along with a review here

Corsair Gaming K63 Compact Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit Red LED, Cherry MX Red
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The keys feel like an old school typewriter. It is small and compact. Nice bright red lite keys. Very sturdy USB cord.

Cons: Sounds funny but if you are not going to use for gaming it would be nice for it to have a usb port for a mouse.

Other Thoughts: It is a 9.5 rating for me as I will use it for typing. I post thousand of posts on various forums. Some well know tech forums are where I hang out.

I like a nice mechanical key board like this as I can type fairly fast. I am using 3 or four keyboards at the moment. I have a corsair
k43 which I got here it is full size and not mechanical at least 5 inches longer then this k63. Th k63 is far brighter which is good for me. it is smaller and heaver then the k43 all plus items .
It you write as much as I do online spending 80 bucks is worth it. I except the key board to last me for years.
I don't bother with any software as I really just want a key board to give me a typewriter feel and to lite in the dark as I use a 50 inch tv as a monitor and run off lights at night.
I was glad to get this as a reviewer for newegg. I like it more then the corsair k43 due to the compact size and heavy feel to it.

this is a first impression 1 hour out of the box review . I will follow up on this later.
