    Came as part of this rig- would be running at least a 750w for these cards anyway.... nice to have the option of running a 3rd card though :)

    Even if I only run the 580's? or can I run a CPU job with the GPU work?

    No threat from me... but you never know :p

    This rig is going to run for the CC and we'll see what happens from there. I'm looking for a host for the rig atm so if I can find one then I'll let it run 24/7/365.....

    I have found that running 2 GTX 560 Ti's on my Asus A8N-SLI-Deluxe is a no-no. Production is reduced 4-6000 PPD for each card! GTX 460's, no problem.

    Yeah, CPU limitations hit the bigger cards pretty hard. A Pentium 4 HT 630 can only support about 1 GTX 460 maximum or it runs at 100% CPU and causes the GPU load to go all over the place. I think 2x GTX 460s on my X2 4400+ only used like 30-50% CPU though.

    did they change the value on those, or is it just that your 580 gets a good QRB?

    All my cards are doing alot better on that wu. 2 of them didnt have the beta flag so changed them back. Gonna see what happens but the ones getting the 7662 are putting out way more than other wu. :) Had three cards shut down but gonna fire them back up. 46k on 580 40k on 570 both at 900 core and 32k on 480 at 750 core.

    Back with folding.

    Got my 680 running on -502 core and -502 mem for non coil whine operation. These new cards all whine like pigs when 100% loaded.

    Is 28K PPD ok for this "monsters"? Folding without CPU.

    After a week, you'll be in 13th place for current daily folders on TPU. I'd say it's OK. ;)

    :cool: I just got a free bonus when I bought my HD 7850 for either Bioshock or Tomb Raider. I don't play first person shooters. PM me if you want it.

    Will do. But might be a while. I'm still getting it all sorted out with SSD/HD setup, etc. It's going to be my daily use PC. (#4 in my sig). I built it with economy in mind, therefore the i3.

    Good news: I'll have my two 460/768's folding 24/7/365 real-soon. :cool:

    Nice looking innards. As a tit-for-tat, I just built a new PC that I'll use for part time crunching.

    Thanks for helping out! :toast:

    I have 2 of those boards- one has/will have a 920 DO with 3x7770's for crunching and one has/will have a Xeon Hex core (Thanks again KieX!) with 2x580's for folding

    The configuration may change slightly (which part goes where) but the folder will definitely go in a HAF 932 case and the cruncher in a Fractal Define XL rev. 2 case :)

    Since I sold my P55 system last Friday and it was running a GTX 465 and dual 460s, my 460s were offline until today. I found an old 250GB drive last used on an AMD Phenom II system, so I cobbled together my A8N32-SLI, an Athlon 64 3400+ single core (I have a delidded Opteron 170 but no working coolers to use it with atm) and 2GB ECC DDR-400. It's working at the least, although the single core (like my P4 630) gets bogged down by some .NET Runtime thing randomly. It seems to have ceased and the GPUs aren't being starved at the moment, so I guess it will be fine. I might consider a Haswell/Z87 upgrade for my main desktop and pass down this 3770K setup to work for distributed computing to replace the P55/i7-870 rig I no longer own if I can still run an additional rig.

    I'm down about 9k PPD for now--the GTX550TI I had folding crapped out. It won't fold now and just displays garbage to the display--sadly, I don't think that warranty replacement is an option for it. I have another 8800GT going in its place (bringing me to 3 8800GTs, an 8800GTS G92, tw0 9600GSOs, and an 8800GS).
