    Well, I take this back. I'm going to have the gf turn the PC off until I get back from this damn project here in NY (I'm pretty sure the girlfriend is tired of listening to troubleshooting instructions over the phone). I'm almost 100% positive it's PSU related now.

    Edit: Anyone here know if it'll hurt a vid card if it has power to the 6-pin adapter while the system is off??? I'm contemplating an experiment for Fri.

    Thanks stanhemi! :toast:

    Are you looking for a great PSU?

    I recommend ANTEC 80+ models.

    We have a new baby well 7 months so I had to give up my " game room " for the baby. So until my older daughter goes to college in the fall and I get to her old roomI had to move my pc to the living room and its about 8 feet from the pellet stove. My temps are up and down all the time now. When the stove is on the cards get hot. I have one card that runs a lot hotter than the other:
    [​IMG]

    and thats stock on both cards. So I am not able to run them o/c'd right now. The hot card will get into the high 90's to hot for me.

    I am still wanting to get a gtx260( hell I have been saying that for 2 months now:laugh:)

    Thats what I may have to do. My case is a huge full tower lots of room but the airflow must suck. I leave the side open a couple of inches to get more air inside as it is. I may have to get a small fan, but then I am moving only warm air anyway.

    Hilarious, decided to try a client on my cpu.. 93 ppd! Although only at 50%, I can't see a huge increase going to 100, and I can't afford to burn this cpu out yet. Must be nice to have an intel quad that can do over 2k ppd. Oh, and some of those 57xx jobs make my gtx run at 80c, makes me very nervous as it really doesn't like temps much over that.....

    You'll have to start any work units over that you didn't finish, but user statistics are stored on Stanford's servers. Make sure you use the same user name when you set up the program again.

    Wow, these big 57xx jobs keep my gtx at 80c, and I've got to pull all my filters and clean them tomorrow, but if that doesn't work, I've got to back off on clocks. I'll never be able to replace my 280, a once in a lifetime deal for me. It's like gaming on your card 24/7.... Anyone else have any ideas how I can down temps in an antec 1200, all fans on max, card fan on max, 8 fans installed.. I tried popping off the side panel, temp rose 1c.
