    Well, I'd say it's probably 850w DC or so (200w/GPU + 125w/CPU) which isn't too bad for a 1200w PSU. I was assuming ~85% efficiency :toast:

    That surprises me...my GTX470 should by all means be a terrible one (it's a GTX465 unlocked) but I can still OC it and get the WCG HCC WUs to finish in ~3 minutes 5 seconds each.

    It's not that they can't be overclocked, the power supply doesn't have enough juice at least for benchmarks. There's the mobo, 2 cpu's, 3 580's, 10 120mm fams, 1 200mm fan, 2 10,000 rpm hd's, and a mcp655 water pump running off it.

    The APU is doing nicely, but it's my laptop that I'm impressed by. Almost keeping up with the full crunching APU on GPU WU's only. :)

    :rockout: Ya got a HD6850? I have one that I am not running, however was thinking about installing it in the wife's system as a cruncher. She is running the i7 920 system and this might make a nice addition to that if it is doing the GPU WU's.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am running 2 6850's in crossfire. They do real well except I think my problem I was having might be the fact that they are in crossfire. I have crossfire disabled now and will see what happens. If I still have problems I am going to seperate them into different rigs and try that. If one card is causing the problem I will be able to detect which one it is.

    What are your temps on the GPU's? Are they on a fan profile?

    That's pretty great, my GTX460s are doing ~60c or so, and the GTX470 is hitting about 70C (although it was doing ~90C on FAH, so this is an improvement)

    Thats with the fans set to auto and I haven't seen the fan speed go above 60%. The XFX card seems to run a couple degrees lower then the Visiontek card but that has to do with the XFX card has dual fans.

    The first slice of pie is the best, because then you feel compelled to upgrade and get it again and again and again.

    Good luck! :toast:

    Wow. Simply amazing. Nearly 110k BOINC points from Norton :eek: :rockout:

    And congratulations to everyone, particularly BarbaricSoul for his first slice of pie! :rockout:
    (and 24 people over 10k! :D)

    Damn, got knocked out of the top 20. Not using the GPU for crunching and for gaming instead is causing me some trouble. I did just get some motivation to add the GTX260 to the second machine and use that for crunching, so maybe I can force my way back in with that?
