    You're giving it a rest :p

    That seems like fine temps on the VRMs...what I've done on the 860 that I think works well is to pull the metal bracket off of a slot fan and put it on top of the GPU pointed at the motherboard.

    How fast is the GPU doing these WUs?

    CPU@cores temps seem to be a bit hot. You are running it at stock freq, right? What CPU votage shows CPU-Z under full load?

    The Fractal case actually has an 8th slot running at 90 degrees to the others so I think I can make a bracket to install a fan off of it and aim it right at the VRM's :toast:

    The 6870 is running the WU to 99.415% in under 4 minutes :)

    Ah yes, the benefits of going w/ a high-end case with extra features. That should help too :toast:

    That's actually slower than I would have thought, given what I heard from Daimus about his AMD GPUs. My GTX470 will do to 99.415% in about 2:40..then just over 20 seconds of CPU-only work.

    So I have a slightly different GPU - HD6950 unlocked&overclocked to HD6970.
    It is running the WU to 99.416% in from 2m05sec to 2m40sec. Full completion takes from 3m10sec to 3m50sec.
    Norton says thanks.

    Will need to double-check the voltage but for the moment everything is in auto. I'm not overly impressed with the Spire cooler so if the temps remain high I may pick up another Xig Night Hawk or maybe one of those water cooling units.

    The 7870 and 7850 are the true speed demons with the GPU WU's....
    7850 to 99.415% in 01:40
    7870 to 99.415% in 01:25 :rockout:
    and almost no lag out of them :D

    :eek:

    So, basically, a HD7870 is nearly as fast as a pair of GTX470s. I wonder how AMD cards are so successful at this...

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Nice numbers Norton :toast: So what kind of ppd do the 7850's put out? ♪♫ The wheels in my head go round and round ♫♪
