    Nah, they have a very low power draw and correspondingly low heat output/temperatures :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    On my 7850 I was hitting 49c last night running 2 wu's at a time and the fan was at 30%.

    I remember using the resistors to trick my 3870X2 into folding on both GPU's. lol

    The 7970's look pretty cool. 2 of those should boost the system some plus I can get waterblocks for those too.

    That's awesome. My GTX460s are doing ~55C, but that's with the fan as slow as it will go in a warm room

    I'm running the fan at 10% with good air flow in the case

    6x120mm room temp 20c

    the A6 doing great @3325MHz hit only 52c

    sadly no full waterblock for this card.:(

    A couple pictures of where I stand ATM:
    [​IMG]
    On the left is an i7 860 @ 3.5GHz powering two GTX460s, on the right is an i7-920 @ 3.83GHz running an ATI X1300 (soon to be HD7770). Getting ~18k PPD from the i7-860 and ~4.5k from the i7-920.

    [​IMG]
    My "laptop farm"--a C2D 2.8GHz and a PentDC 2GHz. About 2k PPD between them.

    [​IMG]
    i7-2700k @ 4.4GHz with 2 GTX470s. ~33k PPD or so.

    Not pictured is my laptop, an i7-3612QM that does just shy of 4k PPD :toast:

    After viewing this thread you guys have made me want to put building my motor more on hold after the head cam gears are done. so i can build me some crunchers again.

    right now i just have my lappy which you see in the specs.

    I also am folding on a 8600GT OC that was donated a couple years ago for folding(its EUE a lot anymore) paired on a Dual core pentium @3ghz cooled with a H50

    Not much but I go back to work monday after being off for (will be 5 days) next weeks check will pay whats left of the bills and the next 3 for the month are free besides gas for my car(which gets a whole 15mpg on 93octang :banghead: ) and have to do something for mine and my girls anniversary.

    but point is i am browsing newegg,tiger direct and the FS forum planning my build out. I hope by December i will have some decent points.

    That would be great! I might be looking to sell my i7-860 system (see Peenemunde in my System Specs) later on--it's a very solid system (i7 860 @ 3.5GHz, 2xGTX460, Maximus III Gene, 8GB RAM, 650w modular Antec PSU)--PM me if you're interested and we can discuss pricing :toast:
    What are you looking to build as a new system?

    That must be quite the car :)p)--I don't have one with me at university, but I can get 40MPG on my Dad's Pontiac Vibe and close to 70 on my Mom's Prius.

    My car is a 02 Caviler LS Sport with a bored and camed ecotec,has a built auto trans,full 2.5inch exhaust, LSJ manifold, Ported intake manifold, parts of the ignition system from a 05 cobalt, higher flow injectors(from LSJ) and fuel rail,polly motor mounts,RK sport K member,stage 1 coil over all around,oversized from breaks, aggressive tuned also I have a head i'm building right now.
    car weights in at about 2100lbs and pushed enough torque that i broke the output shaft in my 1st trans which was rated at 205lb/ft

    i think i am forgetting somethings too but people are often surprised when they ride with me or get their doors blown off(the ricers) when they pull beside me and start reving with their fart cannons :laugh:



    As for building the computer i'm looking at:
    8 core FX
    990FX board of somekind
    not sure on the GPU but they will be Nvidia
    Also the PSU will depend on which GPU(s) i pick.
    Will prob get 4 or 8gb of Ripjaws or GEIL ram
    for HDD it will be a lappy drive i'm sure,maybe a Momentus XT if i can get another for a good price

    Here's some of the machines I've been using @ home and work. Don't mind the one. It's in rough shape but my main workhorse so its on more often than being maintained.. lol

    There isn't much to show with the couple on servers. Virtualized environments HP/EMC in a couple racks. Missing 5 laptops in that. Will be adding another of the dell i7's soon.

    http://imageshack.us/g/1/9870340/

    Don't have many punching with a GPU yet. Last time I put in any serious crunching time GPU units for nvidea were flaky at best.

    Edit: Those 2 loose servers are in the basement. Haven't got the sqlbox installed yet and still have the other 2 1u to get ready work, family and health issues have kept my time lately.

    That's a very solid setup you have! :toast:
    But please, please, please clean the dust out of that rig with the GPU! :eek:

    Ehh, I've found that just blowing hard at the HSF can help. But I'd say that's enough dust it's definitely worth taking it down for 15 minutes to clean ;)

    But I'm familiar with the "never offline" thing ;)

    35 days and counting, no plans to shut it down any time soon :)

    Haha right on! You should have seen it before I cleaned it a couple months ago when I moved into a new house. ;) Could peel it off in a couple spots!
