    No, I just figure they were cut from thicker stock than we pampered human's now-a-day and move on. I figured out what was the cause of the heat in my room and oddly, it was the PSU in Might Mouse that was producing most of the heat. I guess the 430W was a bit low for its current configuration. It will get the 5770 once we hit 20 Mil.

    I was running a 430w with a volt-modded 8800GT and a X2 5000+BE@3.1ghz crunching and folding 24/7. It maybe possible but maybe its just the difference in brands (Rosewill vs Thermal take)


    hell i even had a Antec 350w with a voltmodded 8800GT and X2 4850e@3.1ghz

    I also found out what was causing the heat in my room. It turned out to be four rigs putting out 100,000 ppd.:toast:

    That's better than I did today.:D

    I don't know about heat but I was the first born in a new hospital in the middle of the winter and it didn't have heat. When the doctor slapped my butt my first words probably was, "what the ****:cry:" I've seen pictures of the house I was taken home to and I don't see any electric lines.:ohwell:

    That could very well be it. I still trust Rosewill. The PSU didn't fail me, just got hot. A am sure the card just draws more power than I think it does at 100%.

    It was a good buy when I got it as well since I only paid like $35 for a 430W with Active PFC, Single 12V rail, and a 6 pin PCIe plug.

    How can you sleep in there? I mean, I am sure we are all down to next to nothing trying to post in this forum at home, but I can't sleep in a hot room. Thankfully I am one of the low tier members and only putting out about 19,000 PPD so I am just uncomfortable. You might be living in a sauna at this point.

    The town my Dad was raised in was so far out in the boondocks, they didn't get electricity until 1960! (Long after he left, thank goodness)

    As for heat, I'm blessed to have finally moved back to the SF Bay Area where we have nature's own A/C -- Fog. If I was still living back in NYC, no way could I fold with three PC's and 7 cards and still run the A/C. That old cloth covered wiring in the walls would have gone up in flames. My hat's off to all of you living east of the dry-line and still folding in the Summer.:respect:

    I haven't had a problem with a Rosewill PSU only have used a few. Most of the time the cost of them makes it worth a chance and they are getting a better rep with time:)

    This is what I was trying to fold with. I'm back down to 60,000 ppd again. What do you guys have running?

    For almost a week I been without my AC. During that time it has been around 90F from around noon to after dark. During this time I've left my 3 -bigadv rigs running. If I didn't have a big ass fan I would have gone down for the count.

    Tonight the AC is back on but it has been taken hours just to get to 85F in here.

    In room now with AC.
    1 i7 965 running A3 Core. (switched over from -bigadv)
    1 i7 920 running A3 Core. (switched over from -bigadv)
    1 i7 920 running A3 Core. (switched over from -bigadv)
    1 GTX 470

    In room with no AC.
    1 AMD X4 running A3 Core.

    I'm now back up to about 59,000 PPD. Because of heat I've left most of my cards off for several days. Among my cards are 4 GTX 260s and they really cause me problems on hot days.

    We should have less that 2 days and just over 1 million points to go so let's try to keep these babies together.:toast:

    Wow you guys certainly have money!

    I've got my GTX260 running F@H and 2x Phenom II x4 B50's and a 4600x2 running WCG. Not 24/7 though as it's in my bedroom and I don't pay the bills around here :laugh:

    Some certainly do. Most of my stuff I got used, or in the case of my lame dual-xeon, for free. I also re-use things like water cooling blocks, pumps, radiators, cases, and ram. Everything else I purchased at rock-bottom prices. Still, I'd hate to add up the receipts. :ohwell:

    Sold them, replaced by the 285's:D

    The hardware's were acquired over a long period one rig at a time so it's not like I'm loaded (although sometimes I wish I was:rolleyes:). I only have 2 rigs running at the house, the rest are elsewhere so I don't have to pay that much for electricity:D

    I'm sorry I couldn't fold with my 470's, my water loop project has been taking longer than I expected.

    Still folding w/the e5200 and 9600GSO for 4k ppd.

    I think after w break 20Mil we should all fold for Monkey_Business and bring a fantastic end to this challenge.

    This says 21m, and if I'm not mistaken, that means it's time to go home...
