    My output is going to be down for a day or so :(

    Had a power out which seems to have taken my main PC's mobo out, and I use it to logon to my other PC's, so all machines are down atm

    I am going to swap out some parts and hopfully get this thing up and running again, but it is a pain dismantaling my WC loop and crap.

    Hope to be back to some sort of production later...fingers crossed
    BUCK NASTY says thanks.

    I will be joining oily on the down list. I activated windows, shut down and installed a hard drive that I had cloned the same install to, before I activated. WOW! The fire works on the task bar and the screen were incredible.:mad:

    Well we have a soory state of affairs here.

    Seems the power outage took the PSU (4 pin plug burnt), damaged a stick of RAM and to add insult to injury I have a corrupt ntkrnl on my main partition.

    Thankfully I have an Acronis backup for the partition, just need new PSU and RAM :(

    Hopefully I will get my other rig folding today sometime...

    I got the 9300 up and folding again, so I should be able to maintain a PPD closer to 6000:
    [​IMG]
    Currently I have the shaders on the 9300 @ 1400mhz, I know they are stable at least up to 1600, so I'll OC them some more later (from 1200mhz stock)

    I lost my internet last night and had all of my clients trying to connect for over 5 hours. When it came back on my new router wouldn't recognize my wired ports. About 3 hours later I gave up and hooked up an old router that finally worked. I now need to find out how to make my new beautiful wireless router something other than a paper weight.

    Still testing my 280, seems it won't do 712 gpu, thought it would, down to 702, works fine. Confusing, because my old sick 280 would do 712, but wouldn't do 1512 shaders stable, only 1456, but new card does 1512, arrrg. In all that confusion I still spat out 4k points. If 280 is okay, I move my 9800gtx back in the server, again, to fold. This bs has nearly done me in..... need my backup card soon! Oh and also, added a 120v powered hi-output fan to my side to cool down the 280, 7 fans ain't enough!

    Good to hear that the 280 is still going strong at this point. We will gladly take the 9800GTX back online!

    I've had to remove the 9300 from F@H for the time being, I've been having some issues with my computer lately and last time I traced it down to the northbridge overheating (the 9300 is integrated GFX). If this resolves it, I'm afraid I'm going to be out ~600 PPD, but it is still worth it because whenever my computer crashes I tend to loose whatever WU the 8800GT is crunching and everything the Q9400 is crunching. Sorry team. I'll see what I can do for more PPD later

    I think i am going to sell my 8800GT's. As i think one of them is dying(not sure will test it in other rig later) so if anyone wants 2 8800GT's PM me if you want more info/details. I will test the 3rd one in the other rig sometime this week(could just be the SLI hack causing problems but idk yet)
    Also if anyone wants it i will sell my 8800GTS 320mb core G80(96sp about equal to a good 9600gso)

    so sum it up

    I have 2 8800GT's up for grabs and maybe a 3rd one if it can pass my testing without error. the other 2 are great cards that clock to 700/1800(c/s) for folding 24/7 :)

    I'm not sure yet.. Thinking atleast a 250gts or 2(for SLI goodness) but really not sure yet depends if i can sell them and how much extra money i have :ohwell:
    or on 2nd thought get 2 quads one for the AMD rig and one for the Intel rig and get into crunching more again what ever i do i can assure you it will be going into folding or crunching


    haven't even paid for the last 8800GT i got yet and already want to sell it lol (btw to the seller MO will be in the mail tomorrow :toast:)

    BTW i think i know what the problem with the card is. I think it is one of the vregs that i put a really small ramsink on i think after a few days it becomes saturated and overheats it.So i am going to run the card underclocked tonight and tomorrow pull the heatsink off and replace the little heatsink on the vreg with a bigger one.If that solves the problem i may keep the cards or sell them still

    i still havent removed the stock cooler, because i still need to know a method, to attach ramsinks, that already have been used, and which dont stick anymore:laugh:
    so far running fine, i game sometimes, or only fold on one card, if the other screen is in use, and i had to restart somehow:eek: so they sometimes have the chance to cool down, and they will do it very fast,luckily:)

    mine don't get a chance to cool down because they are going 24/7. The most break they get are when they get a 1888pt WU :laugh:
    was that to me?

    No worries, my 2nd 9800 GT is easily making up for you and then some. If I didn't buy my 2nd 9800 GT I would just have a GeForce 210 16sp in there. :)
    hertz9753 and [Ion] say thanks.

    So I was asked by hertz last night if I wanted pie....
    [​IMG]
    So it looks like I'm going to be getting pie for today, maybe tomorrow as well :)
    I guess this means that I currently have 4 GTX 260s, 2 GTX 275s, and 1 8800GT on my username!

    Thanks hertz!

    Ok guys, those of you with non-air cooled CPUs in your rigs, I want you to talk my ear off about alternative cooling. I don't care if its full water loops, Peltier coolers or sacrificing a goat over your exposed rig to fuel its soul consuming ways.

    I'm looking for reliability above all else, as this thing will be running as much as possible. I would prefer it if my cooling system didn't draw as much power as the rig itself too. I'd really like it to be an easy setup, though I don't mind trying new things and getting my hands dirty.

    If I go the route of full loop, I may look at doing something specific for the GPUs, as I'm sure 3 OC'ed GTX 260s and an OC'ed i7 would be a touch too much for 1 loop. Having said that, I'm talking above my pay grade as I have 0 experience in water, just what I've seen from other people.

    Also, I've seen people say a few times now the cost of water cooling components are going up. Is this true, and if so is buying a loop right now the best idea? In other words, if the prices will crater in a month for some reason I can't currently think of, I won't be buying it right away.
