Hmm I used to use what you're talking about before I bought a new PSU. I'm still using the same GPU and it doesn't seem to have been damaged in any noticeable way, regardless; I wouldn't keep using a 6pin to 8pin for long use, something about that seems a bit risky.
👨💻🎙Now i learnt if u pres no's keys as video plays u get weird sounds TECHNO let scratch this linus video HIT # A FEW NOS AND HAVE A LOL
WHATS YOUR BEST SCRATCH NOS ? 3X1 & 9 4 & 9 Haa 🤪👋🎤🤵 have hope u learnt how to🎶 SCRATCH A YOUTUBE VIDEO 🎵🎹😱👋 SHAME WE cant post a small video in here like the OLD DAYS
Im a huge fan your vids are what made me wanna pc but i use mine for gaming and my graphics card is not good for gaming i was wondering if u can help me out becuase i get barley any fps on low graphics
That orange tape is Capton tape. It's there to protect the card edge connector from solder, but that's usually used for protecting mounting hole pads from wave soldering. Probably the board is getting way too much solder paste in assembly, and the only way they can make sure no extra liquid solder flows on the connector is to protect it with Capton tape?
Theres only one way to fin out and that is to purchase it and as you can see in the video you just watched. Even though linus lucked out and got 2 legit cards doesn't mean you are going to have the same luck. I wouldn't buy it personally i would just deal with the current card until you can afford to buy it from amazon or a consistently reputable place
This GTX 1060 6GB ColorFul iGame card is real or is it fake? It's 157 dollars.
Purchased one , only runs drivers that came with it in the box , nvidia experience and the stand alone drivers do not work on this graphics card , performs well below my GTX 970 , looking at work around but yeah junk really for a $107 Nzd also oculus rift rates the card below minimum spec for VR lol 😂
You have low protection with AliExpress. Any dispute, you have to ship it back to get the refund which in many cases are too costly and not cost benefit. Many sellers, using this ball by asking us to return it. The best way is to reverse it by Paypal or credit card company if they mess around.
20 years after, the echo continues.....
There is a 5GB GTX 1060. It was made from the 1060 6GB that had dead memory modules on them. These 5GB cards can not be bought publicly and are only sold to Chinese Internet gaming cafés.
The 1060 5 GB was made specifically for China Commercial users, internet cafe actually. Nvidia significantly cuts 1060 5GB's mining ability, which is as low as 1050 Ti, but keep the 1060's gaming performance. It was a respond for over priced period when most consumer cards bought by miners and the price went sky high. The ELSA 1080 has a rumor that they were retired mining cards with a 980 Ti cooler. A deeper rumor was that those batch of 1080 were saved from a flood in Sichuan providence, where has some private owned hydro power plants to sell cheaper electricity to miners. There was a flood damaged mining factory. The miners saved some 1080 and sell them cheap to restore some of their investment. Of course that all rumors cannot be confirmed, but when you pay that less for a 1080, you know what you are gonna get. If it works fine as a normal 1080, your money is well spend, at least before it fried itself and you have no warranty to backup.
It's not a complete scam, you say? It's not a scam at all! You got far more value for the price that you would have gotten in NA. Why can't you just give it its credit and say it's a good market for purchasing? Oh, because they're Chinese.
I mean I am a Chinese I will not deny the fact that we do have cheap and fake things but I really think naming the video”buying fake stuff from China” or as aliexpress will help in this fake Chinese stuff situation. I mean we do make and sell them but it is not a thing that will be representing China in any way. Plus we do make a lot of the apple stuff. FOXCONN: we make our worker work only 16 hours a day
Offshore projects are a strategic line of Rosneft’s business activity. Rosneft is a pioneer in the development of the Russian shelf. Most of the fields of the Sakhalin shelf have been discovered with the participation of the Companys specialists. The deposits of the world-famous Russian offshore projects "Sakhalin-1" and "Sakhalin-2", as well as the Kirinskoye field, were in course of geological prospecting works of 1975-1993. In 1998, Rosneft specialists drilled Russia’s first horizontal well with an extended reach from the Sakhalin shore, in the Odoptu-Sea, the North Dome, therefore starting the oil production at the continental shelf.
Today, the Company is the largest subsoil user on the Russian shelf: as of January 1, 2017, owns 55 licenses for the water areas of the Arctic, Far Eastern and Southern seas of Russia. The hydrocarbon resources in these areas are estimated at 41.5 billion tons of oil equivalent. The Company also implements the offshore project in the Black Sea, off the coast of the Republic of Abkhazia; explores and produces hydrocarbons on the Vietnam shelf; participates in projects on the shelves of Norway, Mozambique and Venezuela.
The main regions of Rosneft’s license blocks:
Western Arctic - Barents, Pechora and Kara Seas (19 projects) Eastern Arctic - Laptev Sea, East Siberian and Chukchi Seas (9 projects) Far East - Sea of Okhotsk and Sea of Japan (20 projects) Russian Southern seas - Black, Azov and Caspian seas (8 projects)
As of 01/01/2017, the Company conducts geological exploration of subsoil resources in 45 license blocks located on the Russian shelf and inland seas of Russia. 10 licenses were issued for the exploration and production of oil and gas, including the production of hydrocarbons at 7 sites. License obligations have been delivered in full.
Today, Rosneft’s key oil and gas production projects on the Russian continental shelf are Sakhalin-1, the Northern part of the Chaivo and Northern Dome of the Odoptu-Sea deposits .
