    Wish I could buy 9600 for 80 bucks over here. :cry:

    But I'm very happy for you Buck. :)

    I was having some CPU high temps with a Pentium Dual Core 3.6Ghz. I'm very sure that this CPU is a power hog! But when you get stuff for free, can't complain.

    I installed a "Big Typhoon" :p to contain the heat. The results were good. Max temp getting now is 51C - before was around 65C+.

    News about the TPU sig with the team number?

    Can't you find a dual pci-e mobo used?

    Look at computer recycling warehouses. You might get lucky and find a good deal.

    I'm not doing CPU folding with this rig. I have 3 ATI GPU clients with it. The CPU gets very busy with the clients! :D

    The board on top of the pic is an ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE

    The mobo with the PD cpu (bottom) is an ASUS P5N32-SLI SE DELUXE

    Any of you guys in Canada, if you run across a cheap/used sli amd mobo, I could use it! My server board is only single pci-e, and I have an 8800gs that needs to be folding. I can't run it with my 280 on my main rig, but it will run with my 9800gtx. I could just swap cpu, ram ect. The current mobo in it needs to be thrown out. M2N-E, already replaced once, I hate it, and it's dying again, I really need to replace it! I have paypal, but not sure when I'll have money, so let me know please?

    You have 14 PCs though, it wouldn't make that much difference to your PPD!

    Well, I finally passed poor Skitzo, hope he comes back! Now it's time for my 280 to rest, until I can afford cooling for it. My 9800gtx stays under 58c at all times, so it stays folding 24/7. When I get a sli board, I'll add my 8800gs to take up some of the loss. I have to protect this 280, I can't replace it. Sorry for the reduction, Fold On!

    Isn't the GTX 280 designed to be a high end card that should be able to wihtstand even some tweaking and playing with water cooling or even LN2.

    Maybe I'm the one that should be worried about temperatures. Just noticed that my GF8800GT with stock cooler folds EUE-free at 95 degrees celsius. :ohwell:
    Maybe I should push the fan to 100% because it only hits 45% with stock settings. And that card now runs only at 1651 shader, rest stock. The card also has the early cooler with small fan.

    My other GF8800GT has Zalman cooler and that GPU1 is now at 83 degrees. However, that card has reference pcb without any cooling for mosfets and memory. I've also got some weird UNSTABLE_MACHINE errors with that card only 1-3 seconds after loading a new WU. Other WU's always reach 100% and those errors happen 0-2 times a day.

    I've also been lazy and haven't installed any fans around my cards. Do you think that I should build better cooling to save those cards?

    Last days I've struggled with issues in my only game, IL-2 Sturmovik. I finally solved them with 185.20 drivers, but now RivaTuner can't see the clocks of my GPU1. Also my P5N-E SLI mobo needed a bios update to be stable in games. I'll also have to forget high-speed SMP folding with that mobo.
