My power supplies have never let me down. That’s probably because I disassemble them before putting up for job, throw away all junk manufacturers put inside and install real parts. I don’t care if it’s an overkill like to put eight 40A 100V Schottky diodes instead of four 20A 45V ones. I know it’s better to be safe than sorry and the result is worth the effort. My background in electrical engineering says never trust a consumer PSU no matter how wonderful it looks on the outside. Don’t trust the reviews either because they’re written by noobs usually who make no difference between buck, push-pull, half and full bridge.
I like that idea. I might have to see if there are any guides around on what’s needed, though.
Tho nothing I had should have pulled more than 750watts anyway, I think it was a fan I had connected. either way, the new case/psu is a lot cooler and with a new cpu heatsink is a hell of a lot better too, so I should be sorted…
I did work out that a 350watt psu is quite happy to run a hd5850 in 3d games like cod4, with 1 ssd drive and 1 ide 80gb. I had to use 2 molex to pcie power connectors to power it, but no probs. I didn’t try mining with it, just in case I did pop something lol
good to know as I just had it spare as a bit of junk…
whew… back to mining
I’m not a YAN fanboy, but you cannot deny that when they get people behind a cause, things happen. YAN’s down w/free markets and I’m sure (quite sure) plenty would be supportive of an effort to out these crypto-terrorist that are attempting to destroy a blossoming free market by pretending to have some sort of authoritah. It is my belief that it is time these few learn how little authoritah they actually have over this free market.

Good read …
[quote]Earlier today, one of the WorldCoin mining pools (http://wdc.dontmine.me) was on an orphan blockchain for more than 300 blocks. That would never happen for any competently designed coin.[/quote]
It was a very good read thanks Tuck!
[quote name=“Nutnut” post=“3265” timestamp=“1368520498”]…I’ve not sold any ftc yet as i think it will be worth holding on for a longer term. Let the miners that are mining and dumping chase the snapshot profitability charts. I’ll mine what i think will be most profitable in the medium - long term.
…I hear/read so many people saying “I sold 2000 btc when they were 1$ each” or “I sold 10000 ltc when they were 20c”. I don’t wanna be one of those guys. I wanna be a “I mined those 50000 coins when they were 5c, now they’re $25 each and I’ve retired” kinda guy.
My sentiments precisely. Mine the coins now, or buy them if you can’t/don’t mine - it matters not that their value is less compared to some other coins. If you have the coin in your wallet now when it is worth comparably less, then when their value rises you’ll be ahead of the game.

Ah man, i feel for ya. Hope the insurance replaced the Mont Blanc pen set that you left in the Glove compartment and the Armani shades on the dash.
Thanks Glad to see everything is steaming ahead still.
Good to have everyone back… how dare life get in the way.
Haha well I don’t want anyone to think I’ve gone to the dark side of another alt coin. I was MIA for like 6days.

As you may or may not know: “The Department of Homeland Security has apparently shut down a key mobile payments account associated with Mt. Gox, the largest Bitcoin exchange.”
Here are a few links:
Prices immediately started falling on Gox and BTC-e exchanges for all cyptocurrencies including FTC.
What do you think?
I think its great, bad news is still publicly, it just gets cyptocurrencies more media.
