i lot power as well a little past 10?
You guys both have cards that came from me.
Best Buy does not keep records like New Egg. Both of those PNY 260's were from me. One had the rounded edge and the other one was square. I have an MSI GTX 470 that I could ship to you. Give me a pm.
the sanford PS3 servers didnt go down this morning!! (its been a consitent outage for days like clock work) so my PS3 is netting some ok points for a ps3 im passing 500 if this keeps up ill be able to see what my real 24 hour avg is since I havent been able to since i started it due to no WU being distributed.
If you're running SMP on the Xeon as well, you should do quite nicely. Otherwise, I believe a PS3 gets just under 1k PPD
im not folding on my desktop at all atm. my ac 13 is saturated i need to tweak some more and find sme decent settings that allow me to drop the voltage. then ill try and load the cpu for extended amounts of time.
Understandable, these OCed i7s throw off an enormous amount of heat :shadedshu
i mean it does a hell of an OC at low volts but i need to tweak things like VTT etc basically this board is a bit overwhelming and its been a long time since iv touched i7 desktops i simply dont know my own machine well enough yet so its like this inside my case.

Got my GTX470 installed earlier. Damn GF100 uses a ton of power. With the fan at 100%, it's phenomenally loud, and temperatures are still in the upper 70s. With the fan on default, it's still loud and temperatures are in the low 90s.
I have one of the 5187pt WUs ATM and it's doing about 13.5k PPD @ 700MHz (at least I think it should, when I rebooted it it lost the OC settings and I'm waiting for it to come to its senses again). I'll post a screenshot later
Now you know how loud and hot those cards are. Imagine having two of them in the same machine.
That would be terrible. Particularly if you had a mATX board and they had to go back-to-back. At least I could run them a bit spaced out on the ASRock P55 board. Still, I can't imagine the noise and heat levels from a system like that. PPD is pretty nice though.
I think if I get a 2nd GPU for this setup, it'll have to be something low-power like a GTS450 or so. No way I can cope with another 200w GPU in it.
Kai, I know your in a dorm for College, but do you have a roommate? If so, what does he think about the noise/heat?
I do. The heat isn't an issue, it's started to get cool here in NC, so I have the window open with a big box fan blowing in air. He's actually mentioned a couple times that it's chilly at night in here. Despite the computers running, it's still pleasantly cool in here (surprisingly, particularly on my half). When I had the fans on the GTX460s at 100% (or 70%, as that's the highest they'll go ) he said it was too loud. With them on auto, he doesn't mind. I certainly won't be able to leave the GTX470 fan at 100% when he's around (I don't mind the noise, so I crank it up when I'm the only one in here). We'll see if auto is OK, and if not I'll get some sort of aftermarket cooler for it.
The CPU coolers on both systems are pretty much silent, so that's a non-issue
I have a GELID Icy Vision (v2?) on mine, which I traded with popswala for. My GTX 470 is running at 65c right now, and the highest I've seen with that cooler was like 84c when I first put it on and the paste was settling. Price isn't too bad for one new either ($60).
The GTX470 up and folding:
I've struck the nice balance of having the card simultaneously overclocked and undervolted a tad. Getting just over 14k PPD vs ~12.6k or so stock...I'm expecting ~20k PPD or so if I can get the 5757pt WUs on it. If everything is stable overnight, I'm going to bump the clocks a bit more tomorrow. I feel that the current fan speed strikes the best balance between noise & temperatures, although I will continue to set it to 100% when I'm here alone
Your card needs 1.062v to do 730MHz? My 470 does 725 @ 1.000v and my GTX 465 does 750 @ 1.000v as well. The default vcore on my 465 was 1.036v and my 470 was 0.950v (no idea if it is a modded BIOS or not). For each 12mV decrease on those cards, I would typically see a 1c drop on the stock cooler.
I have no idea honestly. It was doing 1.075v @ stock clocks (625MHz IIRC), and I was curious to see if I could drop it any and still keep the card stable. So I did. I'm going to see about dropping it a bit more tomorrow, but right now my goal is just to have it stable so it can fold for a bit.
.975 is stock voltage on my 470. Havent checked my 465, and Ill let you know as soon as I get the other 470 up.
my old gtx460 did like 825/850 at 1.1
I have my GTX460s doing 848MHz at stock voltage, but they are a different core (GF104 vs GF100). GF104 is smaller & cooler-running and generally seems to clock higher.
Indeed. I have mine running at 825MHz @ 0.962-0.975v. I see no real point in going for a massive OC and voltage increase on Fermi chips as they just get much hotter with less gains after that point.
The GTX460s aren't too bad...if I crank up the fan all the way, temperatures are in the upper 60s and they aren't too loud. But I'd certainly agree that GF100 it isn't worthwhile....86C is already plenty hot, thank you.
EDIT: Can anyone more familiar with the new V7 client than I am please guide me through setting things up so I can see all of my clients on one rig? Everything is one one network and all of the computers have static IPs. It owuld be even better if the monitoring program supports creating a website.
did you try adding a new client via the expert menu?
also remember (i used to do network monitoring when i had 27 rigs crunching) that you may need to (share) the folder so it can be seen by the network.
i know i just got back but i used to be really good at this and a core player in F@H land go back like 500 pages and you see all sorts of work that I did and other members recommending me when they had issues.
Heh, I went back to page 118 for shits and giggles and found this picture from 11/30/08. It's interesting to see a snapshot from nearly 4 years ago and compare it to where we are nowadays. One reason why forums that have been online for years are awesome.
OMG, It's like my kindergarten pictures! Such a young noob.
hahaha 400k points that means it was before my GX2 days and my AMD systems. I was pulling like 7k a day as opposed to 60k later that year. those were the days though.
