My old file server died a few years ago, probably because of a dead motherboard. Might have been the power supply. Not sure.
Anyways, ever since my old server went cold turkey, I’ve had this bunch of old, powerful hardware sitting for ages.

Microsoft forced my mining rig to upgrade to Windows 10 version 1803 recently, and ever since I noticed an issue where MSI Afterburner 4.5.0 was not able to save the Core Voltage value when undervolting GPUs 2 to 8 on the rig.
