    So, I officially took out the 290 from the i3 system and swapped in the 7770. It'll be quite a point drop lol, but it'll do til I can get the other rig back online. At least this 7770 will run quietly and cooly ;)

    Now it's time to get this 290 dismantled and try to get everything back in the other pc and on water before the night ends. but alas, in-laws anniversary dinner tonight will thwart my plans, as always. Those in-laws... :shadedshu:

    A just 7770 nipples watts. I will go as far to say it is crime not run one if your rig is running 24/7. The problem is that you need to run it 24/7 since the completion time is 1½ day :)

    Back to the 290 we still need to see the full potential of this bad boy. Until now 75,410 seems to be the max but that is less than 0,1% shy of what my re-branded 7970 can do. Dry ice it and pull 80 k on a 13000 and I will buy some decent HW to beat it.

    Amen to power! This 7770 folding is nothing compared to what I was just running. With the 7770, it's pulling 100w, that's total system power! Add in the other 3 threads crunching and i'm barely at 130w. Compared that to the 290 which pulled about 315w total system, folding and 3 threads crunching. Big Difference!

    Hopefully by tomorrow I'll know what the 290s will be doing once they're back to folding ;)

    @mstenholm your 7970 sounds like a beast though! :eek:

    1128/1575 Core/memory but one of 10 WU skips a beat and reduce the overall 150 k ppd to 140k ppd.

    I think that I need to update my X58 platforms. They sit in Windows at 150 W and 4,05 GHz/"7970" pulls 412 W.

    750ti's use less power and have more compute than a 7770...

    So the 750ti folding problem is a thing of the past with the right client? Nice to know for the summer folders. Anyway except from a 680 all my GPUs are the kind that did well in the happy WCG GPU days - AMDs.

    I honestly don't know. I haven't folded on mine yet. I just know they are compute power houses that sip power.

    Might finally get my 680, but have to give up my almost new 480 in my main rig and 100 bucks.... I think it's worth it!

    It seems like there is still some 750ti issues https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=25887&start=120
    Since I don't own such a card I only read the headlines but I think that I saw a work around somewhere in same forum.

    I am current on that thread. I am today starting to sort through and figure out how my computer/cruncher/folding situation. I need to downsize but I don't know what I want to downsize.

    Gpu wise I have a 7970, 7930(7870XT), and two 650ti's. Gpu wise I really like the lower power usage of the 750ti's, which I would want to keep them and fold with them because it is cheap. I would also want to keep the 7970 because it is the most powerfull of the bunch, gaming and folding. The 7930 has a cooler problem and would be hard to sell, and could also crossfire with the 7970 when star citizen comes out. I don't know what I want to keep and get rid of.

    The 680 I may be getting has a water block.... and the regular air cooler too... what do I need to run water cooling on a 680? Used rad and a pump?

    Put the air cooler on and sell the block to recoup costs.... last thing you want on a limited budget is to have a leak take out your system!

    A pump, rad, and tubing for a minimal setup could run around $100

    I've been wanting to move to Radeon, but my mom won't. :p I'd sell my 770 and go for 2 7950/7930s (and PSU) or 1 7970 now that eBay is full of them for cheap but my mom doesn't like my selling and buying like that. Wants me to learn contentment. :D

    Not sure if there's a point in trying to sell 680 water cooling stuff, I'm prob better off keeping it. Plus over time, 100 bucks might not be so bad to learn about water cooling finally.

    I could probably throw a rad your way on the cheap if you get to that point, just let me know. ;)

    Bmaverick has cheap pumps more than sufficient for the job.
    $35 for pump
    $X for rad
    $15 for tubing
    $>15 for a reservoir.
    $X for fittings
    $0.00 for gpu waterblock.

    I could throw you a reservoir for cheap too.

    I bought 3 of said pumps and have not used a single one yet. If you want one , just pm me and I can take a pic per tpu rules and we could go from there.

    If I get the 680, I probably almost have to get water cooling gear. Just have to send my 480 and 100 bucks... Then a deal on whatever I need to put it on a loop. It stays at 50c under load, I'd feel comfortable folding it at nights......

    I just got my 780 and started folding last night with it. I haven't had an air cooled card for so long, I forgot to adjust the fans and it hit like 85c lol. Better now, Fan at 70%, stays about 63c. Without a GPU in the loop my CPU stays like 10c cooler crunching

    Awesome to hear! Those 780s have a nice cooler so I'm guessing that 70% fan isn't that bad right? (at least compared to the AMD ones lol)



    Speaking of loops, started filling my loop today, but my pump won't start. I'm not sure what's going on since it worked a few days ago without any problem. It's a D5 pump, it's got the coolant in it so it shouldn't be dry, and yet I'm stumped; never had this before. :banghead:

    Yeah, at 70% it's only about as loud as my pump.

    Is your pump plugged in? Lol, last night I was filling my loop and my pump wouldn't start, and I was getting worried, and then I realized I had unplugged its 4 pin connector accidentally. Felt really dumb

    I look forward to seeing how your 780 will treat you. We can expect some nice ppd from you ;)


    Pump, yeah, it's plugged in lol, but I've done that before too. :oops: I wish for an easy fix like that. Still messing with it but I think now I need to drain it again to check everything down at the bottom of the res to the pump. :(


    Could be that. Ironically I waited til today from last night to avoid all those late night hiccups and stupid mistakes, and yet I've found myself flooded in them regardless. :laugh:
