    I have 10 GPUs on my windows 10. But the Afterburner (MSI Afterburner 4.4.0 Beta 19) can ONLY show 8 GPU. No matter how I adjust the gpu slot sequence, the Afterburner can ONLY list 8 GPU. Is it still a bug? Is there any solution? Thank you!

    Windows Device Manager can show all these 10 cards: 9X NVIDIA 1070, 1X Vega 56.

    It is a bug in your logic. World is not rotating around miners. There are no plans to recreate all skins just because of that mining crazyness, sorry.

    Why would you have 10 gpus on any system lol? Can I ask you for a favor? Winter-time does your machine war up the whole house or what? I know in the summer-time here in Chicago when i would game on my Gtx 780 and crank the clocks my room would feel like a sauna, I dont know how you can handle it dude.

    Let me borrow your system (winter) so I do not have to pay for my heat.

    How long does it take for your mining rig to actually become profitable after the cost of hardware and increase electricity use?

    I actually had a few people lined-up to invest into mining but when we found out what the pay-out is decided to pass.

    Don't buy gpu for mining... Actually, you are losing money... I have no choice now, but have to mine to get money back...

    I like the creative use of the word "only" in this thread.

    I don't understand how ten GPUs is even possible. Assuming 150 watts per GPU, that would easily total 1700 watts for the entire system, which is perilously close to the 1800 watts that most home circuits are rated for. How do you plan on running this system?

    I would be more open minded ^^

    An option would be to have a minimal GUI/TEXT with one line per GPU.
    That would make MSI afterburner even more appealing to the world.

    LOL but AB is already #1.
    Why theF would Unwinder want to make it even more appealing to couple of ppl who are using AB for commercial purposes.
    If you just need text output of monitoring hw with some crude means of control go GNU Linux. Its already there burred behind /proc

    I always love offers to be “open minded”, which sounds as a soft form of “shut up and do what we want”.
    What if there is something in implementation, which you don’t see but I do? There is already “minimal GUI/text” allowing you to select any GPU available in the system (with no any max GPU limits) inside application properties, in “General” tab. That is more than enough for those, who actually need to control such systems.
    But making more than 8 GPUs to appear in quick GPU selection panel of the skins requires redesigning ALL skins. And that’s BY FAR not a minimal GUI/text. You’re free to create such skins for miners yourself, if you see it that important. I don’t.

    Well, I did spend time on the french translation,
    why not on the GUI ;-)
    Is there any doc that explains how to update the GUI?
