    Wouldn't that be a 12P and an SR-6 then? :p :roll:

    @ [Ion] just doing the math..... 3x(4P)= 12P, 3x(SR2)= SR6

    If you could run 12 12 core Optys in one rig, the result would be phenomenal. But I don't see how that would work, TBH :p

    Are they running out of 6 core rigs or something? I got a 7039 wu, and at 56% says it still has 21hrs to go! I hope a get a massive points dump for this monster.....

    Gtx 460 2Win bare naked, and a royal kick in the nuts to EVGA

    Today i decided to replace the TIM on my brand new card, as temps were 5-6 higher than the second card i bought and i could see tim (i mean A LOT of it) on every side of the gpu cores. Way too much of it... Dismantling was easy, 3 little bolts and 8 springs and it is done.

    While cleaning, i had a :eek::banghead: moment: a BIG (i mean 2 mm deep) depression in one of the heatpipe!!!

    The paint/anodized finish is perfect, no chip or anything, so someone actually crafted the little cooler with that right in it's face, and approved it!!:shadedshu

    I'll see what evga has to say, but they're better be cool, cause my blood is pretty hot...

    Here's the pics anyway, talk about a crowded pcb...

    Side note: the cores don't have any nvidia logo on them. Only number. Weird...

    It's neat to see the card's exploded view. Were you having temp issues before this and can you just fill the gap with TIM?

    4-5c difference between the two cores. 1-2c is ok, not i cannot pass on that. I really hope EVGA just send me another cooler and call it a day, as shipping the card back and forth is pointless (card is working A1, just bad luck for the cooler...)

    And yes, impressing seeing that much of pcb (12" long after all) without much free square millimeter.

    That's a beautiful GPU! :toast:
    How are the temps on it compared to normal GTX460s?

    You should see the coolers: 3x 8mm heatpipe with so little aluminium fins (they are just a little bit taller than the heatpipes) to dissipate. Hums at low 80s when folding, fans running in the 80-90%. Not so much loud, so it's cool.

    I don't know what will happen in summer though...:cry:

    For the rest, it is two gf104 1gb on a stick. Behave pretty much like my old slied msi gtx 460.

    And got two 8102 in a row!!! HhheeHhaaaa!

    Just bought a little system: pentium g540, ASUS P8B75-M LE, 2x2gb Ripjaws 1600 cl9 1,5v, with a coolermaster elite 370 for under 190$ shipped. This will give birth to a sweet folding box...

    Wow--that's a great deal! :toast:

    Are you going to throw one of your GTX460s in it?

    Cheapest 2 pci-e slot case+mobo+cpu+ram combo i could produce. Amd was tempting, as for 30$ more, it gave me a 955 and a full atx mobo, but i don't think the smp would have been worth it.

    Going to throw the gtx 295 and the co-op in there. Those two are going to be tough to sell at a "not too much loss" price. It's been a long time the two cyclone have paid themselves, ppd wise (they have folded MANY millions in the time i've used them), and i just got the two others. I'll play with them a little...

    I bet they probably shut down the server distributing the PS3 WUs assuming that everyone would update their PS3 consoles. Or, Stanford asked Sony to pull the feature, perhaps because the output wasn't viable anymore given the age and power consumption of the platform. We may never know the real reason, but I'm not certain that Sony would just remove it "on a whim" as it's not like it posed a security risk or let you pirate games or something (wasn't that the reason OtherOS support went away?).

    Stay away from the 8-core 6128's. Everyone who built a rig with them is trying to upgrade to the cheap 12-core Magnycours that are flooding the market due to Interlagos/Piledriver upgrades.

    Arg I hate that, they put the 480s on sale in the middle of the month when I have no money! I'm hoping they'll keep them on sale to run out the stock until the 21st... otherwise, still looking for a 2nd 480! I'll be able to throw another card in the folding box then. And test at least one 480 for folding too. I really want to test out this psu....

    Many cards can seriously put a psu to it's knees. You'll have fun with the 480.

    The crown is held by the dual gpu cards though. The GX2, 295, and lately the 2win consumes some huge wattage.

    Having 700-800w of heat coming from 5 gpus right next to you is definetely something the folder in me just loved...:rockout:

    Well i'd say 16k for the co-op and 18k from the 295, so anywhere between 32 and 34. That is assuming the case can cool them, and that is no easy task.

    I must say i can't wait to play with the little pentium. Time to really see if 12 threads is SO much better than 2 really good one?

    It should be noted that i hate Intel for locking down my cpu:banghead:. Why in hell should i have to pay for playing with frequency and multipliers ??? I'm f*****g voiding my warranty here! I think i did my part.

    The last part was purely emotional. My rationality understands all that pretty well, it just needed to be told to the world.

    Well i'll still give quite a bit of my actual farm for one of these.

    And load my credit card to upgrade cpu after a while.

    That's the idea with the kidney: enough cash to built, install and fold. No "damn i shouldn't have bought something this big/costly/addictive" moment.
