    I'm sure it killed my 460. I didn't take a picture but one voltage regulator turned brown over night. The 450GTS is still alive but it (at least I think that is the culprit) has given me problems lately. The rig is old so I don't want to spend to much time/money to keep it running 24/7 but since it holds all of my photo/printer software it will live to do odd jobs.

    Arg, it sucks being poor. I just find out my mom has cancer today, and not much I can do about it. Wish I could run a fleet of folding boxes! So the rest of you... fold your brains out!

    My 3rd and 4th gtx 460 2win are coming to town next week, i've got my two l5520 today and the mobo should arrive by monday. By next week-end, it'll be some nasty points coming!

    I take the time to wish your mom the best. Sad to hear your story...

    Thankyou. And take the time to cut out the stupid vents in the back. Dropped my folding temps on a 260 by 10c. Think I'll even do it to my 480 now.

    OMG, this will be epic if you can get all of them configured and running @ full production. I will await their arrival with much anticipation.:respect:

    I'll wait a few months and see where the PPD settles on these beta WU's. I have a feeling my next rig will be GPU based with 4 cards. Never thought I would head back towards GPU, but then again this is Pande Group!

    And yes, folding rig back up! Just a small change... but the 260 seems to be doing well.

    Not really a good idea for RMA. I don't think EVGA will appreciate...

    The 4 cards i've bought so far are all brand new products. I'll wait till the warranty expire before doing anything!

    Well with two by my side plus my mini-box, i can tell you i feel the 1,2kW of heat... That is with a 30" wide window, a 4" opening, and -5 C air coming from outside.

    Room temp at two feet: 31c. :fear:

    I still don't know how i'll spread all that over the only two rooms with network connection.

    Yeah, the 260 I did it to was way over warranty. But I know the risks, and folding a card is risky to begin with. Plus, I got the brand new 480 for 179can! Not like I'm risking a lot....
    Hmm, my quote button is messed up...

    By the way, I'm going all over the net right now, describing how both my mother and father got cancer, and you need to fold. And giving the folding at home address. Sorry, very upset right now. I hope more people understand how widespread cancer is, and we need to stop it.

    My first big points drop in less than one hour. I'll go to sleep and let it do one more. I can't fold the 480 all the time, this is my gaming box. Need to put this stuff in my folding box!
    And everyone should know I got my ppd to stable 110k+ on the single card. No oces yet, havent tried this time.

    They will retain more value in time than standard gtx 460, as only a small number were produced, and god does it fold!

    While you can pretty much protect yourself from heart related problem with good life habits, cancer can strike at any age, any condition and any shape. It is a real bitch which i'll fight with my gpus!

    Finally received my mobo this afternoon...

    Got my hands on the board, only to see a clearly blown chip. :nutkick:

    Started the refund process, but that doesn't give me any board... Stuck with all gear but nothing to plug into! I think i'm gonna get drunk...

    I just installed FAH on my i7-860 system and I'm going to see how the two GTX460s do. I'll be watching the PPD and the temperatures :)
