    Yup, 1xSR-2 (2x X5680) and i7-970. The other SR-2 (2x 5570) is running WCG ATM. I have a i7-980 that is on WIN7 and I will convert that to Linux for -bigadv projects.

    Someone has these babies coming their way (not saying who).

    Been out moose hunting, and my mom, who's taking care of my son, didn't like the idea of a sr-2 running under the bed... I had to shut it off...

    Same thing everytime someone enters my appartment: Man your computerS are so loud! How can you live with that kind of sound...

    Well, just try folding... In a couple of months, you will also think 40db is not loud at all:rockout:

    Well, I may throw my 2 285s into my folding box now. Didn't expect my 480 to just crush them in gaming performance.....

    With a second 4p rig on the way, I think you'll have your hands full. I can always through them in my X58 rig, on the other hand
    Aha, that makes sense. I can don't even notice the noise any more, but everyone else is amazed by how loud things are :D

    Bah, impatience as usual, got both 285s + my xeon up, going to see how that produces. On another note, I love my 480, it kills my 285s, lovely birthday present!

    Not anywhere near that place...

    I'm hunting in the quebec city area. And to answer your question, i've seen a squirrel piss off enough birds to be kicked out of the feeding spot (honestly, it made me laugh for the rest of the day...), but not even close to a moose. Still no luck...

    To ion, my mom went back to her place and my rigs are up and running again.

    I shall do my duty with pride: go hunt AND do 175k ppd!:toast:

    Haven't even tried my 480 yet for ppd, but how does the 6 series do for ppd?

    Oh, and any time anyone has a 480 for sale, please let me know. I'll need one in one month. Please, I really need one more.

    Not too good, apparently a GTX680 does ~18k PPD (and I can get 20.3k on my GTX470)

    For now because Standford is still in the works for a code that fully maximizes that card's potential.

    Well, my 2 285s just went online. My xeon is still going. I need a 2nd 480 for my main rig still, so anyone at all? I'll have funds to purchase at end of month. One payment. You can hold until receive full funds. Can you tell how long I've wanted to do this?

    I don't have one available--and I'm looking to get more GPUs, not shed them :)

    That's the problem, I can't use CL or Newegg up here, doesn't work. Pain in butt being in Canada. That's why it's taken so long for me to start rebuilding my folding farm. I've lost cards, but haven't replaced them yet, so it's hard for me to throw more into the bucket when I don't know if I can replace them!
    Edit: and quite frankly, either of those options make me cringe... really?

    Pete, If i see a deal down here on a GTX480 in the lower 48, I'll get with you. I could ship to you like we have done in the past.

    Yep, sounds like a plan. I have a month before I have funds again, so lots of time. I think I like the EVGA vanilla ones... doing 850/1700 at 1.05v, don't break 71c during benching. Has a vid of 1.025v, I finally got me a cherry chip!
