    Well, my palit gtx280 died.. again. Big surprise. I've now got it stripped, and ready for the oven! Pray for it.

    Well, not going to hold my breath, but my baked 280 is back up and folding. And now instead of running at 80c its at 65c. Bizarre. Hope it keeps going for a while!

    Weather has been exceptionally cool these past couple days- down to low 80s from 100+ this time last week. Been running 24/7 and should hit a long awaited milestone tomorrow.

    I had to stop folding due to the weather, getting into the 90's in the room with the 'puter in it, and I'm trying to save money so no to the AC when im not in the room.

    Anyone got a good source for 2 full cover GTX 470 waterblocks?

    Yeah, we're getting a weird cold snap here or something too. It's only 18c outside, it should be much higher. My baked 280 is still going! Wonder what's going to happen when the heat hits....

    Just cranked the 280 shader clock. I think it will run balls to the wall for like 2-3 months, then I'll have to bake it again. But for now, I'm going to get my $500 worth....

    Came home today to a dead i7 960 rig, Gigabyte MB, Gigabyte 480 and a MSI 460. Not sure what happened it wasn't running when I got home today. It's been off for a couple of months started it back up last weekend and now I come home to a dead rig. I've tried different scenarios like switching out parts for know good parts and found all of the above listed parts are bad. The only thing that still seems to work is the memory (GSkill tridents 1866). I suspect the PSU (corsair 850) was the culprit. Everything is still in warranty its just a hassle to send it all in for a RMA.:cry::cry:

    I have a Corsair 850 in one of my i7-970 rigs so I hope it doesn't blow its top. I've been worried that the heat here in Oklahoma would cause one of my rigs to finally decide to pop a cap or resistor. This is me putting up with my 100F+ days. :p

    I'd hope what happened to TeXBill's Corair PSU and other components is a rare occurrence.

    My Core i7-970 is in a ASUS P6T Deluxe that is water cooled.
    The radiator is a ThermoChill PA120.3 with 3 Delta 38mm fans installed in the top of a COOLER MASTER HAF 932 case.
    I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 that's currently folding a 6904 WU that will upload about 350K Monday morning. :rockout:

    Well boy's, I've gotta go to Chicago for another week. All rigs will be off until early Sat morning(unless my flight gets cancelled again and I have to drive in from Atlanta:shadedshu). Keep on folding!

    My psu is about 2 yrs old, after checking the psu it was bad. Second corsair that has died on me this year. I built that rig at the end of the summer of 09, so its been well used as a folder and gaming rig. It has been watercooled and oc to 4.2GHZ, and has been running that way since day 1.
    I think it was mad at me for retiring it to a folder only when I built the 2600K rig. :laugh::laugh:
    I got everything boxed and ready to ship out on Monday so hopefully it doesn't take long for the RMA's to get back.

    Good grief! My Corsair 850 will be 2 yrs old in Sept.
    A few months ago I was upgrading a motherboard when I noticed that the fan wasn't spinning on a Thermaltake 850 PSU. I found the box but no invoice. After searching Newegg I found it and luckily it was still within its 5 yr warranty. I've had PSU's die but not destroy other components.

    This one is a first. Lucky everything was still under warranty.
    It looks like the 8 pin plug on the MB shorted out and caused my problems.

    Anybody from the team interested in these before I list them elsewhere?

    [​IMG]

    Both are BNIB and never been opened. Board is a B3 stepping RMA upgrade that I traded for and the 2600K is also BNIB (obviously) that I also got from a trade. I'll let both go for $475 shipped (unfortunately CONUS only). Active TPU F@H and WCG team members only for this price.

    UPDATE:

    I have them listed on Amazon so if anyone wants them just PM me.

    Well, since I have all folding now, I can report that all gtx260, 280 and 285 cards will fold safely 24/7 at 660/1512/default ram clocks. I was worried about my baked 280, but it's spitting out ppd at those clocks. You can see my daily ppd.. about 34k. Not bad for old skool! I'm sure I'll have to re-bake the 280, but if it works, I'll do it.
