    Yeah, would like that, but still need a loop. 480s should be water cooled... Just waiting for tomorrow now to see if my card goes back on sale so I'll have a bit of food money left over! Thankfully it'll be at least a year before I can afford 680s used or new, so no more big purchases needed for awhile. Unless I can find a 970 for a good price.....

    I can't seem to get the PS3 to run this 24/7
    It's always off when I wake up in the morning. I've disabled automatic shutdown in the F@H settings too...

    edit: yeah I can see myself in the team stats now

    Meh, I had to stop folding for now. The tubing in the loop of my card was about to burst. Gets super soft and smells like it's burning. Sprung a small leak already. Going to order some better tubing soon. Dammit, just when I got back up and running too :(

    Not melting but it got super soft and smelled like it was burning LOL. One connection sprung a leak and all. So I tightened it back up and just stopped F@H for now. I'll order some new tubing soon, don't feel comfortable being gone all day with that how it was.

    Wow, that really surprises me :eek:
    I'm really astonished that it could be getting hot enough to do that. Hopefully the new tubing will help :toast:

    Folding box was down for almost half a day. It uses so much of my 15amp service, that I tried to fire up my griddle to make supper, tripped my breaker and took er all down! Reset the boot order on my folding box so I thought the windows install was borked. Think my current cards are a bit much, time to sell and save up for more efficient cards. I'll keep folding until I find a buyer for my 285s, then I have to move to 460s/560s ect for the folding box. Wish I had more power, but I don't.

    During the day with the a/c off core 1 was max of 89ºc, and core 2 87ºc. far as I know that's tolerable or borderline for a GTX295?

    :eek:

    When running FAH, my GTX470 would get that hot, but I've never seen anything else do that. Particularly since you have it WCed, I'd be suspicious that perhaps there's something else wrong--block not seated right or something. The GTX260 that I used to have would do maybe 75C--on a stock cooler. Definitely investigate that.

    I'd try to keep the GPU at no more than 85c--preferably a bit lower. What are the ambients? And what size radiator do you have?

    It's a single 140mm radiator with a crap pump and crap fan. It's a Hydro copper edition or what not so I got it with the block on already and no stock cooler. So it has to be water for it to run unfortunately. Ambients do get high while I'm not home probably around close to 80ºf.

    80F is high, yes, but that probably only accounts for an extra ~5C on the GPU. Do you need a better fan or something? I can send you a 120mm or something :toast:

    What if you disassemble it and check and make sure that the thermal paste is properly spread and such? I really don't see how it can possibly be that hot...

    I have a 120.2 radiator here. Then I got some good 120mm fans. I'm going to put that in and check the block. We'll see how that does. I still want to put new tubing though.

    My sr-2 rig is finally up and running, after MUCH hassle trying to get bigadv and 3 gpu folding together.

    Turns out it is impossible, to my knowledge, to get anymore than 1 gpu on my motherboard. Any combination of slot (and/or jumper) did no good.

    Gave up and stood by my 22 min tpf on a 8101.:rockout:

    Tought i could use all the gpus i have, but the sr-2 said f**k you...:cry:

    Just out of curiosity, what is the average amp service most of you have to your homes? I'm assuming 200amp is av?

    We are starting to flatline, but I know Feanor has the SR-2 up and running(170K PPD) and I will have 4P #2 online next week(400K PPD). We should start to see another nice upward trend in points. Once our GPU's come back from the WCG GPU work, it will all fall in place. Keep on folding brothers!:rockout:

    Flatlining we may be, but it's still at approximately twice the PPD we were doing. And your new 4P and Feanor's SR-2 will help immensely.

    And when the WCG GPU WUs do run out, I have ~70k PPD in GPUs to throw at FAH :toast:

    Take the WCG pie from me once and I'll bring F150's Opty over here for a week or two ;)

    Deal?

    Oh, you know my weak spot. It's a deal. Would you prefer to know when I'm sneakin' up on you or just take it "Ninja style"?[​IMG]

    Kai, I am looking forward to some good numbers from you when you return.:rockout:

    :laugh: Either way works for me :p

    I'll give you a tip though- It's easier to attack me on any day except- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.... that's when I get over to the remote rigs and report their work in :)

    Edit- you guys will need to walk me through the setup a bit when I switch over... F150 said the rig is setup for F@H but I'm a total folding noob :eek:

    Yes- It should be all set to go.... just need to start and login AFAIK. I've never run F@H so I'll likely have some questions.

    Given the 5757pt WUs, I can probably do half a million a week. At least if I'm still at university enjoying the electricity here :toast:

    In terminal, should be:
    cd fah
    ./fah6

    I'm assuming F150 has a standard install of F@H on there.

    Only running 3 rigs ATM, work office is under renovation so 2 rigs are down. Converted my 2nd SR-2 back to folding.
