Old post but it might be waking up with the recent surge in mining mania.

A few days ago I bought a save on food (grocery store) card and a Canadian tire card, nothing too exciting but I have to off set the $$$ I blew on GPUs for a couple months then I can look at toys ie Ryzen 1600/mobo/ddr4 or Zen 2 in the beginning of 2018.

Nicely done nothing wrong with that.

Today with btc I bought 6 more risers
A 1050 ti (finally up to 4)
A Asus am3 motherboard

Now on the 27th I will get
Evga 1080 1070 all in one water cooler to get the noise and heat down
Also need more boards so that to.

Right now I'm mining at $20 usd a day plus so next pay out should be good

EthOS, man was that ever a flop and slight misleading advertising of the product...

Yes coincards, they also take their little %5 fee in BTC so there's no out of pocket.

Sounds good. That's probably what I will  do when it comes time.

So steam takes BTC directly or do you have to buy a steam gift card?

Directly, if you followed my guide and use Copay you can pay super fast using its bar code scan feature :D

Traded a drive I bought with BTC locally for this


When did this get made??? haha 6 Dimm slot 1156 but over the last few weeks I am very happy to say I have got a bunch of new benches for review videos of low cost hardware BUT.... wife is due any day now so there should be a bit longer break till I get back to constant videos and I really want to get back to videos :(

PS I forgot the board came with a i3 not sure what one did not care as I have some i5's xeons and i7's to test in it :) and the heatsink which is nice as I'm starting to run out

Yeah, but I'm sure it will do pretty good. My dad still uses the same chipset in his current gaming rig, lol. 

Also, hope all is well when the new one comes.

Would I be correct in expecting those PCIE slots to be getting loaded up soon?

Amazingly no!!!! haha this will be my new 1156 review bench mobo :) going to start getting back to the "value" used reviews and seeing how old gear compares. really enjoy doing those and find they give me the drive to do other reviews and videos.
