    If the price comes down a bit one would make an awesome addition to my ITX system. Hell, it would still make an awesome addition, but right now is a bit expensive for the benefit.

    Just fired up one of my GTX 580's to warm the house up a bit :D

    What are you guys getting on the Core 17 7810 job?

    This 580 is showing a TPF of 5min 22sec atm

    It actually does about 24k ppd with a tpf of about 5 mins 30 secs.

    Thanks! :toast:

    I've got a 7810 running on the 580 and the 7970 now :)

    TPF's as follows:

    - GTX 580- 3min 6sec (800Mhz)
    - Radeon 7970- 1min 42sec (1,000Mhz)

    Actually moving around a bit now- 4m52s- 26k ppd on one 2m43s- 68k ppd on the other

    My internet has been up and down for a day.

    Each person can only fold on one piece of hardware here.

    http://tc.folding.net/index.php?p=div&div=1

    You can roll over names and see what they are running.

    After that click on team and you can see what they do on a daily basis.

    After you pick a team click on switch to updates. That is where you where you will see what the guys are getting for updates

    Just trying to give you guys some real numbers. :eek:

    580's run too damn hot

    I ran the GTX 580 for a day or so and shut it down.... it's too damn hot/blows out too much heat to run unless I need to heat the house with it :rolleyes:

    The w/c'd 7970 runs more than twice the output of the 580 and runs under 50C compared to 65-70C for the 580 @ 70% fan.

    Will be pulling the 7870 from one of my other rigs in a few days and will try that out with F@H- It should give me about 60% of the 7970's output at half the power of the 580.

    If anyone is interested in a pair of EVGA GTX 580's let me know...

    Well, in another month or two I suspect that they'll work well....and realistically, 65-70C is totally fine for a GPU--I think you could even go higher without difficulties...

    I know the GPU's can handle the temps but the heat output vs work done compared to Pitcairn/Tahiti chips is pretty significant. Radeons are doing well lately thanks to better Open CL support for F@H work.

    Will either reserve these 580's for Chimp Challenge output or try to get them to our F@H Team members that would want to run them more often (at a decent price naturally) :)

    Dude, you're getting close to 300,000 PPD with just a GTX780??????????????


    Oh the irony. I remember when a HD4870 would get less than 3000 PPD while an 8800GTS/512 would get close to 6000PPD. How the tables have turned.

    But..., Nvidia has stated that they are working on a fix for OpenCL that is supposed to double their output.

    Remember the episode of Star Trek where the midget was being mind controlled back and forth? That how I feel sometimes with F@H.

    :roll: I do remember that one :laugh:

    It would be great if NVidia can improve OpenCL performance for 5xx series cards. It seems that the GCN architecture of Radeon 7xxx cards and OpenCL are well suited for GPU computing and will continue to be well supported.

    He has 2 of them, I am pretty sure. A single GTX 780 does about 130k-150kPPD depending on clocks and luck on getting back to back to back QRB bonus beta WUs. On days where I can get 4 of the 8900 WUs, my 780 can do 135kPPD @ 1136mhz core clock.

    My ISP was doing updates on 11-5. Click on switch to updates to see what I get per update. The Team Competition has teams made up of six different folders running a different passkey than the rest of their hardware. That is why you can single them out and see what they are doing.

    The picture you posted is from the first page of the Pink Ninjas thread and shows all of our total OCN stats not just from the Team Competition. Click on it and it will take you to EOC.

    2600k
    GTX 570
    GTX 660 Ti
    GTX 780 @ 1149

    Three seperate rigs and the 2600k is on it's own with a GTX 610 for graphics.

    I'm also running the beta flag on all of the GTX's

    http://www.overclock.net/t/1270919/team-competition-manual/0_20

    I hope that I answered the questions.

    :)

    Put the 7970 back to folding now that the WCG challenge has ended :)

    I've decided to put the 580's up for sale- should have a FS thread up sometime this weekend*

    * Will give our Team members a nice discount- PM for details if interested :cool:

    Starting to dump -bigadv's with both servers. Should get us back up to 2 mil+ avg.

    Very nice! I still have my two Tahiti cards, a GTX260, and the GTX560TI448 going. Two more HD7770s will join in as soon as I can get the i7-920 system repaired.

    Well you did the first 1,513,824 today according to Kakao so I guess that we can manage to do the rest. Nice job. How did you manage to drop 4 bigadv's only 15 hours apart? Sure you only got two servers running? ;)

    Had 2-P8101's and then got the quicker P8103's, so both servers had identical WU's.

    Opinions please: Would a MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 stand up to 24/7 usage? Newegg had this for $40 after discounts and MIR and I almost bought it being that I have a Sempron 145 (it has unlocked to dual core on another motherboard) sitting here doing nothing. (but I'm hoping to upgrade my PII 805 so that processor would end up on this board) The Sempron would be much more energy efficient than the 939 processors that I have. The more I read about the board, the more apprehensive I became so I didn't get it. I'm asking because I'm expecting the board to come back on sale again.

    It has holes for push-pins at both ends of the row of VRMs/MOSFEts/whatever they are called, so at least you could put an heatsink of the appropiate kind on it (maybe get it from a decommisoned mobo). And I suppose that when its average in Dutch pricewatches is 50ish euro, you can not expect good quality and a long crunchers'/folders' life.
    If budget allows, do not go below an average price of 60ish euro and try to get one with heatsinks on those "things" near the CPU (or add it yourself). Those cheap boards are not for crunchers/folders/BCers or gamers I think.

    As long as you don't overclock much you should be fine. I'm running 2x Biostar mATX boards for crunching 24/7 and they have bare vrm's- no issues with either board... yet.

    You should be able to get by with any budget AMD board as long as you're just looking for a home for a folding gpu ;)

    *look for a cheap board w/125w cpu support if you want a little extra insurance

    *EDIT- FYI if you're looking for a real cheap board (translation= free)... I have an ASUS 790X AM3 board- PM to discuss if interested :)
