yeap all night part of the day (sometimes I game) the driver 301 from nvidia works very good! 0 error 50k-65k ppd diarios
I'm from Northern Ireland
I have 7 fan´s 120mm 1 140mm 2 80mm cpu temp folding 72°
The 2010 CC. May 5 to May 31 for TPU.
On the page posted below you will find the Emachine from last year. It was an Antec 750 PSU and a GTX 460, not a OCZ Mod-X PSU and GTX 275 that I put In the Emachine.
Maybe I'm a bit too lazy here in Finland: 17°C outside, 25°C in my room with my PC as the heater, max 61°C for my 2600K @ 4.2 GHz and 86°C for my GTX 470 @ 702 MHz core with stock fan settings. At least my folding has been 100% stable and my rig was still folding when I came home after five days at my summer cottage. I have just 1 120mm fan for CPU and 2 case fans (120mm and 140mm) at low RPM, but I have been too lazy to OC more.
I envy that outside temp , speaking of heat and with summer just starting its already starting to hit around 44-48c outside here and my room is in the 30 something range so the AC is almost running all day,
about my PC temps the CPU used to reach the 60c range but after lapping the 212+ about 3 times now its 52-54(with F@H load) and my 580 reaches 86c and with 2 laps and washers under the screws its now at 80c(also with F@H load). Why don't they at least put some effort on the heatsink base so no one would have to lap them
sounds like you would do well on water blocks dude, if your that eager for temp/and or Oc value it cant be beat, i lapp my processors and blocks but ya gota go thin with the tim then but it works well , surely manufacturers could at least make the IHS soddin flat as processors arent cheap either compared to heat sinks(fanned).
ps waterblocks tend to have a better ,flatter machined finish but theý are not perfect
I would water cool my PC if i had the money, i spent the last of what i had on the 580 because the last card i had "a GTX 295" was half dead, "runs fine but decides to crash whenever i play a game or anything similar".
Waterblocks like DD's tend to have a flat-"mirror" finish unlike many closed-loop system's cold plate( i own a corsair H50 ) that has visible machining which you can also feel, i replaced it with the hyper 212+ because with hot weather like i have it has better overall performance than the H50, of course custom water cooling setups with big rads will perform better than air IF you can afford it.
i use the thelmaltake (EK) waterblock(cpu) i got for free with my kandalf case ,just mirrored with lapping paper(film), it does the job and it can be done effectively but on the cheap not havein a dig either way dude ,i knows how ya feel as mines been a tight budget build/evolution and even my old bits are still being used in my home server(eagle)
i walked into watercooling Uk ,a few years ago to buy my first gpu WB ,discounted at 69 quid and the guy their told me my pre watercooled case was shit,,, haha and especially at cooling, he wasnt wrong as it was but some cutting and fileing later and its much better now and a lot of it is 2nd hand (5850, 240 and 120 rad) so was cheap.
Q6600 back in it for one more WU!
Some pics for you guys.
Still having fun.
Holy cow Hertz!!! Very nice!
I checked the temps were you live. Thank you for joining us.
You're welcome, glad i can help in a way.
But these days i've been busy with the uni with finals getting near,i finish in about a month then its summer vacation, 3 months of being lazy and gaming
Keep folding everyone! Oh, and I got my first ever spanking on TPU... kinda liked it....
DanTheBanjoman must have used his belt.
And thats a wrap, wonder when final tallies will be available?
Congratulations folks on your ChimpsChallenge domination! I look forward to beating you next year!
Darn, it's over? Oh well, back to CamelJock then.... nice work everyone, we are all winners when it comes to disease research!
Thanks for racing in the CC! Your race with Beavers_Gone_Banana's was one of the better one's to watch, and I'm sure it spurred on both teams to do their best.
OCF may have the Jaded Monkey this year (we're keeping it happy!), but clearly with all the wu's folded, F@Home was the real winner in this race - as it should be.
If you have any suggestions for changing the CC, please post them here:
See you next year.
Congrats and appreciate all your hard work in making the race possible this year
it's over already ? Time to shut down my rig after 10 days... "=]
