    I've been trying to get an i7-970 rig water cooled for several months and there's always some unexpected expense every month. I'm now shooting for the 1st of Nov.:)

    The one thing I can't live with is excessive heat output.:shadedshu

    Sadly saying it runs warm is being charitable.

    Warm weather is returning so I'm going to have to reduce my Folding activities until it cools back down, which means daytime highs below 60.

    I fried a P-55 mobo that was on it's last leg, so I will be down a rig until DonInKansas ships me the GA-P55-UD3R I just bought from him.

    Anyone try the new fahclient yet? I see it says xp-32bit, does it work as well as the older 64bit version under win7 64? Before I go switching both my boxes over....

    There's only two reasons to use the new client:
    1.) You're a new Folder. It's very easy to set up.
    2.) You're using AMD 5xxx GPU's or newer. This is the only client that supports the new Fah_Core16 which gets, finally, good points from the red side's GPU's, and even then you have to jump through hoops to get it to work.

    Why not to use it:
    Monitoring. To my knowledge, it does not work with any third party monitoring software like HFM.net or FAHmon. I got the client to tell me it's PPD on one (SMP/GPU) install, but my most recent (GPU) install, with the newer beta, would not.

    We have a Client V7 thread

    I already use the older fahclient on both folding boxes. Much easier to deal with 2 gpus and a cpu from a single interface. I don't worry about monitoring, I can see my ppd just by checking the stats. I mainly would like to get rid of the stuck/aborted units bug. Someone let me know if the new version fixes it, otherwise I'll just leave them.

    Wow, just in time too. My 750i mobo just kicked the bucket.... Now I can sell the e8400 to a good buddy on perm disability for cheap. He's still on a e7300, and I need him in my online squadron. Life goes on...... with i7 folding I guess...

    I'll ask you guys for help too, looking for a core2quad for 150 or less. Payment would be made in full before you have to ship. Any ideas appreciated!

    Also, looking for a case suitable for leaving side panel off, and folding an i7 and up to 3 gpus. I don't have anything that will do.

    Well back up to 100% now folding at around 50,000 PPD for TPU. And best of all thanks to my new solar panels it costs me nothing! :D

    Also Johnspack I may have a Core 2 quad a 9650 for sale soon, when I upgrade my LAN machine to LGA 2011.

    They are hard to see because of how they sit on the house, but if you like I can try and do some pics this weekend.

    Think I'll have to sell off what's left of my folding farm for now. My ppd will drop to nothing, sorry. It will take up to 3 months, and I will start my i7 folding farm. Eventually I want to go all cpu folding. I will shortly be looking for another 1st gen i7 9xx series, and another x58 mobo. I will have the money for it. Anyone who has, or will have these parts, please let me know.

    Will be looking for offers on x58 stuff for the forseeable future. Have sold off my main intel folding rig now, but will leave my old Athlon rig going. Need ram, and a water cooling kit, and I can build my new i7 folding rig. A work in progress......

    Water cooling on a Tech Station!:respect:

    I would have had a new rig on a Tech Station running today but my memory is quarantined at my local USPS office. It should have been delivered Friday but instead I got a "Sorry We Missed You!" slip so I have to wait until Monday Oct 31 to get it.

    This rig was to be based on Bulldozer but now I'm not sure what the final processor will be. I will also have water cooling but mine is base on the Corsair H50.

    My camera battery is now being charged so hopefully Monday I'll return with some images and more information.:)
