    Trading, gambling and binary options. Which one you prefer?

    1. Deactivate all you dont need in the Bios 2. Use a T CPU, like G4400T 4560T 3. Use a passive heatsink --> Arctic Alpine 11 / 12 4. Modify the Bios of the GPU and check the set voltage and the in fact voltage. go as low as possible for each card. 5. Go for a NICE supply unit.
