Oh baby.. You have a card for this? Not sure what to get

I'd place 1st with a GT 210, makes no difference to me.

:laughings

I had a 1060 but I sold it when I got my 1080 Ti, lightsout has it now.

shame the 590 isn't allowed, I've got access to a free one :(

I looked for the Golden Sample cards on eBay but the cheapest I found was $120 + $30 shipping, I went for an XFX GTS Black Edition for $100 instead.

this is all too convenient

mildly OT but I figure this thread would be the best place to ask: can anyone recommend a soldering iron? pretty much the only thing I'd be using it for is on a GPU. no real budget, but maybe under $100?

I swapped the heatsink on my 1080 Ti and knocked two caps off (that I knocked off about a year ago and re-soldered) and it took about an hour to do a job that should have only been a few minutes. Getting tired of my janky $10 Harbor Freight special soldering iron.

in less OT news, my RX 580 came today :D

I can't take any recommendations seriously from you so I kind of just ignored it.

:D

I'll look into it. I'm pretty sure mllrkllr88 also recommended one for me but it was so long ago that I don't remember what it was either.

Hey! I missed the part that it was just 580's and 1060's, pretty sweet. I was wondering how this could work with any GPU.

I might have to enter, although best I could do is crank the fans to 100% and give her all she's got. Could be fun though.

How much does CPU factor into time spy and firestrike. As the 1060 is running in a system with an R5 1600x with stock cooler.

stock i7 7700K = 18685 total score, 14478 physics score.
stock i5 7600K = 17050 total score, 9531 physics score.


~52% higher physics score gets you a ~10% total score increase so it's pretty significant.

but even if you aren't super competitive you can still win something from the random draw, do it anyway :p

my 580 is here, haven't tested to make sure it works yet but assuming it does do we really have to wait before you send all the 1st place prizes to me?

I doubt anyone is going to buy a new GPU and if anyone is I doubt they're going for a 560, but if anyone is then there is a janky cheap (but apparently legitimate) RX 560 on Newegg for $95.

It's the 896 shader core version but it can successfully flash to a Sapphire Pulse RX 560 BIOS and it'll unlock the full 1024 shaders.

RX 560 4GB on Newegg (+5% off with promo code MKTZV8W)

the youtube video I stole the info from

Sweet! Kill it with fire!!!

EDIT Or should I say voltage...

not yet, hopefully :D

probably going to bench it vanilla and unmodified/volt modded before I do too much else to it. last Freezer Burn competition I swapped the heatsink and killed the card somehow before I ever benched with it, lol.
