Mine Bitcoin on a Laptop

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. In this video, we will show you how to mine Bitcoin on your laptop. Ok Guys recently I did a review on the Lenovo Legion 5 laptop I will put a link to the video in the description below. In addition, I wanted to see if I could mine bitcoin with the graphics card in the laptop.

NiceHash App – Mining Bitcoin on a Laptop

The app that I am going to use is Nicehash. We won’t be mining Bitcoin directly but we will be using our hashing power to get paid in Bitcoin.

To get the Nicehash app head over to www.nicehash.com and create an account if you do not have one already. Once you have created account click on Login and log into your account.

Click on the mining tab and then click on the Download Miner button. On the next page you will have two options the first Miner is for NVidia Graphics only and the second button if for both NVidia and AMD graphics. This Legion 5 has 1660 TI GPU, so I will click the first button Nicehash QuickMiner.

Disable AntiVirus – Do this at you own Risk

Before installing the Nicehash miner you need to disable your antivirus as the antivirus will pick up the Nicehash installer as a virus. Guys the next steps you will need to do at your own risk. Therefore, head over to Nicehash terms page and have a read. It is important if you are new to Crypto that you understand the risks involved. This video is for information only.

Cool once you read the Nicehash terms, go in Start > Settings and in Security find the Virus and Protection settings. In addition, Turn off real time protection. This is so you can download and install the Nicehash miner. Just use the toggle switch to turn off real time protection and go back to the Nicehash downloads page.

Click the, I understand I have to make an antivirus exception on my rig checkbox. And then click on Go to GitHub download button. Once that load click on the EXE or Zip file. If you do the Zip file, you will need to make a folder exception. Also, if you have another antivirus software like I do here with the McAfee antivirus click accept the risk.

Download NiceHash

Ok if you download the zip file to make a Folder exception go back into the security settings and scroll down to exclusions click on Add or remove exclusions. Click Add an exclusion and navigate to the folder on the screen now. Replace YourWinUser with your Windows username folder and you also need to type in the AppData folder as it is hidden on most computers.

Ok so you would normally have your Nicehash folder here. I do not have it, as I am not using the Zip file install. Cool you have made your exclusions, lets install Nicehash app. Run the miner exe file and click on Download and Install.  Click ok and the Miner will start. You can open the miner screen up to check if it started or not.

Make sure you add in your Bitcoin wallet address. If you go down the bottom right hand side and right click the Nicehash, go to settings and edit Config file.

Mining Bitcoin on a Laptop

Go back into your Nicehash webpage and find your Bitcoin wallet address. It is under the Wallets Tab> deposit > Show BTC address. Copy that and replace the address in the config file.

Start Mining

Awesome you can start mining now. Go back to the Nicehash icon, right click it, and click on Start to start mining.

You can check your dashboard to see if it is mining ok. How much will a 1660TI earn per day? This depends on allot of factors but the Hashing power is currently around 26 MH/s. On my Nicehash app, it says that will earn about $2.50 US per day. Remember that if the price of Bitcoin drops this will be less. And you have to take into account electricity cost.

Lenovo Legion 5 with Intel

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the Lenovo Legion 5 with Intel.

What is the Legion 5?

The Legion 5 has almost everything you need in mid-range gaming laptop. This includes a Intel i7 Hexa-Core CPU. NVIDIA GTX 1660 TI Graphics and 256GB SSD.  All for around the $1000 USD. Check for updated prices in the description below.

This 15-inch laptop is built with what Lenovo calls Phantom Black plastic. On the inside the plastic is rubberised which makes it comfortable to use. The build quality is good and there is not sharp corners or edges.

Dimensions – Lenovo Legion 5

Lenovo says the starting weight is 2.3 KGs or 5 pounds and mine was the same. When you add the brick and cables it was 3.2kgs or 7 Pounds. In term of size the its pretty average for a gaming laptop at this price point. So it not super thin but its not massive either.

The display is a 15.6 inch 1080p, however just be careful when you buy as my model didn’t include the 144 Hz display rather 60hz only display. Its not all bad as when I plug it into an external monitor I can get 144Hz, but its something to be aware of.

In the Legion Edge software you have the option of disabling Hybrid Mode which will give you a performance boost in games at the expense of battery life. Backlight bleed on my display was fine and I didn’t notice it at all.

Across the top you have a 720p camera with a privacy shutter. The camera itself is pretty blurry and you can see its slow to respond when I move my hand. My keyboard looks pretty cool and it came with a single zone of backlight, along with many other RGB colours over 4 zones.

Keyboard

Typing on the keyboard was fine. However I am use to a desktop keyboard and I found some of the keys in slightly different position to what I am use to. So it may take a bit to get use too.

The function and Q keys allow you to cycle through performance modes and the power button changes colour to reflect the performance mode you are in. A really cool feature.

Trackpad was fine sometimes I miss click and it does pick up fingerprint, but seems to clean ok. The lid is designed well and you can open it with one finger and it folds all the way back 180 degrees. The keyboard flex was great. I didn’t find my flex at all. There was more flex on the display, but it wasn’t annoyingly wobbly.

Lenovo legion 5

Lenovo Legion 5 Ports and Connectivity

On the left side you have an air vent along with a usb 3.1 gen one port and an audio jack.

On the right side you have a power light, novo button, USB 3.1 gen 1 port and another air vent.

The back you have a gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.1 display port, two usb 3.1 ports a HDMI, power connector and a Kensington lock.

On the bottom you have two big air vents which push hot air away from the CPU and GPU. And on both sides you have 2 two watts speakers. Lets test how good they are.

So they are a little bit tinny, definitely not as good as the M1 MacBooks review I did link in the description.

Benchmarks

Let test it out with Heaven benchmark and the laptop is in performance mode. While that’s running I will try and give you an idea of how loud the fans gets. Heaven benchmark result was FPS: 147 with a score of 3718. Min FPS was 39 and max was 296. If I put pubg in Ultra settings I was getting about 88 to 101 fps. Doing the same thing with Fortnight and putting it into Epic settings I was able to get around 100 fps it did drop to 45 but that was temporary.

In terms of heat the keyboard does seem to heat up quite allot, but not around the WASD keys which is nice design. This means that your hand should get to uncomfortable when gaming. Viewing Angles on the display were very good take a look.

So would I recommend the Legion 5. Yeah I would I think it’s a great laptop the only concern you might need to have is to make sure you get the right screen with 144hz refresh rate. It makes a big difference.

Clean GPU in 2021

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. In this video, we will show you how to clean GPU in 2021. Ok Guys If you are like me and you have a Crypto GPU or a Gaming GPU and you have been using it a while and it needs a clean then follow me and I will show you how to fix it up.

In this video, we will clean the GPU as well as replace the heatsink thermal paste and the thermal pads.

Dirty GPU to Clean GPU

The model I have here is the Radeon RX 570 and I was using it on a mining rig and as you can see its really dirty and clogged up with dust and to the point where its just over heating all the time. And even some of the heat sink is starting to corrode.

Take the GPU apart

Let us get started. The first thing you will need to do is take apart the card. You can do that by finding the screws that attached the fans to your heatsink. Once you have found them, just go ahead to and remove them. If you have, a different model and you are unsure. My best advice is to take it slow and gently. Moreover, do not get frustrated with it, as you will wreck your card.

When you have the screws loose gently, try to remove the Fans. With my card I have 3 fan cables which I need to remove. Be very gentle with these cables. Make sure you pull them out by the plug and not by the cables. If you pull it out by the cables, there is a chance the cable can break.

Go slowly

Just do your best to kind of slow massage them out. This top one was in awkward position so I just leave it and try doing the bottom one. Try not to force things.

Finally, I get the bottom cable off and wow check out all that dust and the corrosion. To clean the dust off the heat sink, some people use a can of compressed air and blow It everywhere. I just use a vacuum with brush attachment. In addition, do the same cleaning on the fans.

Remove Heatsink

Next step is to remove the heat sink screws. Generally, they will be the four screws on the back of the card. Gently try to remove the heatsink. If it does not move, do not force it. Go back and check there are no more screws to remove.

Cool, there it goes I had two more screws to remove. Therefore, we are going to replace the Thermal pads and Thermal paste. As you can see, the Thermal Pads are pretty much gone on the memory. Gently remove the Thermal Paste. I very slowly just peal it off where I can.

The harder dry pieces gently remove with a screwdriver. Make sure you do not scratch the memory.

How to Clean GPU

You can use a damp cloth or an alcohol wipe to remove any leftover thermal pads and thermal paste.

Clean GPU

Ok time to apply the new Thermal Pads and Paste. There is different thicknesses of thermal pads that go on the memory. On this RX570, .05 thickness goes on the memory and 1.0 goes on the VRMs. However, the VRM Thermal pads seemed ok on this card so I am not going to replace those. I will show you what they are in a second. Also, If you want an Amazon link the Thermal paste and Pads I will leave a link in the description. Cut the thermal pads to size and remove the two bit of plastic either side. Then place it carefully on the memory. If you need to know what thickness, Thermal pads go on your GPU then Google your GPU along with Thermal pad size.

Adding Thermal Paste

Do the same clean for the heatsink and then apply the Thermal Paste. I just put a little bit of Thermal Paste on the GPU. It will spread out when the heatsink and GPU are pushed together.

Both sides of the heatsink have guiding screws, which allows me to place the heatsink on in the right spot.

You can see there is more Thermal pads on the heatsink. It is in good condition so I did not change it.

Once the heatsink is back on flip the card over and replace the screws. Next up replace the fan power cables and screw the fans back on to the GPU.

Awesome you have now cleaned the GPU and replaced the Thermal Pads and Paste. Time to put it back to good use.

Models and Pricing – Samsung Galaxy S21

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S21. The Galaxy S21 is $200 cheaper than last years model. Which is a pretty big drop! The S21 comes in three different models, the S21, S21+ and the S21 Ultra. Pricing for the S21 starts at $799 USD and it comes in four different colours, Gray, White, Violet and Pink.

First up in the box of the Samsung Galaxy S21 you have the phone itself. Next will find the documentation a quick start guide, Warranty information and Samsung Care info. The only other accessories are the USB C cable and the sim eject tool.

No more USB charger with the Samsung Galaxy S21

Samsung has followed Apple’s lead by removing a USB charger, Headphones and a see through case which was included in the box last year. In doing so they have minimised packaging. There has been some criticism from Youtubers about weather this I good move for the environment or not.  In my opinion is that is still a step in the right direction, as those Youtubers focused mostly on the users would go out and buy these extras. But, didn’t focus on the fact that allot of users might not buy these extras. I usually charge my phone with a cable which is attached to my laptop. So no adapter in the box actually works for me.

The Galaxy S21 supports 15 watts wireless charging and is IP68 water and dust resistant up to 1.5 meters for 30 mins.

Display

The Galaxy S21 has a 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. It has a 1080 by 2400 -pixel resolution at 421 ppi. If you compare it with last year’s model the S20+ on the right, you can see the S20+ has a bit more screen real estate on its 6.7-inch AMOLED display. If you are looking to update to the S21 this might help you get an idea of the screen size.

On the right side, you have then Volume up and down buttons and Sleep Wake power button. On the bottom, you have the USB C connector, microphone pin hole, sim card slot and 1 of the stereo speakers. Actually, the Stereo speakers are impressive. Take a listen.

On the left side of the iPhone, you have the Ring Silent and a SIM card slot.

Face Unlock

Face recognition and Face unlock are standard on the Galaxy S21 models. Along the front top of the S21 we have a 10 megapixel Camera which has a F2.2 aperture. While you can’t see them there is a whole bunch of sensors here. FingerPrint, Proximity, accelerometer, gyro and compass. The camera detects you face so you don’t have to enter a passcode to open the device.

Cameras

On the back of the S21 you have a Triple Camera setup which features a Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras. The 12MP Ultra Wide camera has a 120-degree field of view with a F2.2 aperture. The 12 megapixel Wide camera has a f 1.8 aperture and the last camera features a 64 MP telephoto camera Which has a 3x Hybrid Zoom and F2.0 aperture. for stunning portrait shots.

So out of the box the Samsung Galaxy S21 will take amazing photos. Here are some comparisons between the S21 and last years model the S20+. Can you spot the difference?

Samsung Galaxy S21 Zoom

To use the Zoom go into the camera and you have the default Zooms marked with tree. The default is one times. You have a Three and a .5 times zoom as well. If you swipe up you will find the rest and here you can zoom all the way into 30 times and back out.

CPU Snapdragon or Exynos?

The Galaxy S21 can come with either the Exynos or Snapdragon CPU depending where you live. A fast processor is important when playing games and videos or when generally moving around the phone. Here’s the Geekbench scores for the Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy S20+.

The results of the Geekbench scores show that the S21 does out perform last years model the S21+. One other thing you might notice here is the S21 has adaptive 120Hz screen. This means there is less flicker because it uses AI to adjust the screen refresh rate. Its means that the screen is less likely to flicker as you see here.

After running the CPU benchmark if we take a look at where the S21 is heating up it seems to me mostly at the top of the device near the cameras.

So what’s my thoughts, it’s a pretty amazing phone its really grown on me. I like the smaller size is just right for your pocket and its $200 cheaper which is amazing.

Once you have connected to WIFI the Diagnostics will download and you can use the Diagnostics to see if you have a hardware problem with your Mac.

Just click Run Offline and the Mac will check all your hardware to see if its ok. I get an error with my power adapter because its not plugged in. If you click get started it will show you a list of error codes. So if you have faulty hardware you can contact Apple for help.

If I plug my cable back in and run the test again I don’t get any error codes. This means that the Mac hardware is fine and working correctly.

Start-up Disks

If you want to check startup disk, reinstall MacOS, restore from backup or change security settings go into Recovery mode by pressing the Options Cog. So in Recovery menu you have Restore from Time Machine. Reinstall Mac OS. Disk Utility and Browse Apple support.
