    I sorted the cooling with an unused 20 cm board fan:

    Close up without cover paper:

    With cover paper installed:
    [​IMG]

    Now GPU0 at 80 degrees celsius with fan set at 50% with RivaTuner
    and GPU1 at 72 degrees celsius.
    The noise level also dropped a lot thanks to the big and powerful board fan.

    I wish I could OC that cooler GPU a bit, but now RivaTuner can't do that. In my previous attempt 1720 MHz shader EUE'd two times, 1699 MHz stable, but that was before the additional cooling. Luckily it's factory OC'd to 650/1625/900.

    Yeah I just picked up a 9" desk fan for £5 to help with my cooling as well.Hopefully will help with my cooling as well.
    My HD3870 is at ~85C and the 9600GSO ~75

    Yeah this is only a temporary setup until I get my attic sorted.
    Then my folding rigs will all be going up there where they can all get naked together and no one can see :)

    It's a Doberman ...dopey but lovable...the wife treats it like our own and it can open our back door if not locked and just wanders around the house.

    My desktop and laptop running at full makes my room a full 10 degree hotter then the rest of the house lol

    Installed the Windows 7 Beta, so far looks like everything is running (and folding) fine. Had to caress it a bit to fold but now is working. (Interesting note: the windows rating is now out of 7.9 and when I ran it I got only a 5.5 (I was folding at the same time to be fair, but in vista I got a 5.9)

    My vista laptop is deciding to act up now so I can't fold on the gpu anymore (went from ~700ppd to ~150 overnight :( ) May just put it back to mac.... unless windows 7 magically appears on it lol

    And my folding may go down for awhile as I get everything working right.. but I should be able to keep at least something going at all times.


    @stanhemi
    Oh and that's what kept happening to my q6600... could never fix it so I'm running mono too
    stanhemi says thanks.

    To everyone having problems with 6.20 SMP:


    Have you upgraded to 6.23 Beta R1? That's what i had to do with 5 rigs. Look at the bottom of the page for "Drop-in binary for current Windows SMP console client (6.23)" . Just delete the old executable and paste this one in.

    Here is the link:http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther

    ***************************************************

    Back to the rig pics. I have not posted this one in a while. My flagship dual 8800GTS 512/E8400/P5Q Pro. I just cleaned her out this weekend. Isn't she pretty?:laugh:

    [​IMG]

    Here's the good ol' HTPC pulling duty again with 2x 9600GSO's. The addition of these 2 cards bring the farm total to 20 GPU.

    [​IMG]

    And, since were on the subject of dogs, meet Lexy. She has chewed alot of stuff(drywall, baseboards, etc...), but GPU's have luckily not been included.

    20 GPU's..I thought I was loud with 3...Lexy looks kind of relaxed...just like our old black lab, I miss Jan, a very good gun dog who never got over excited.
