Back to weather. Early this week it hit 50f. Today it had a high of 30f. The 20c range continues.
Cruncher/folder pron here:
I love it! I love how he is doing the case. I have seen a lot of bitcoin mining cases built similarly.
If only I had the money....I would devote a room, in the basement, for wine and a bunch of Opty servers!
Is anyone else waiting for MCM WU's to validate? They seem to take days to validate, sometimes.
Saw a litecoin mining rig on Reddit. Thought it'd make one FIIIINE cruncher/folder.
Rough calculations put the total cost at approximately $144k

That pile of mobos... that's the exact same model I used to use for my main computer (now "retired" for my server machine)
Yes, yes... I see where all the AMD gpus have gone.
I see a dark side of myself when looking at that. That unethical little voice in the back of my head. It says grab an armfull of ssd's and anything else you can grab and RUN!!!
Imagine the boost science would get if they spent even a fraction of that power crunching, folding, or working any other DC project?
*UPDATE- 550W Platinum PSU for $69.99 ($49.99 after rebate... reg $139.99)

Just means we'll have a flood of cheap GPUs once they're no longer profitable. Science always wins.
You mean if they're not burnt up by then.
Edit: I suppose it's rather irrelevant to the thread. I'll look for a different way to validate the keys. Wanted them to go to WCGers rather than random people.
Spoiler: Old post
Would someone be willing to test a Steam key? Someone who appears to be from Russia got in to my Humble Bundle account. The password was somewhat simple, so it's my fault, really. The gift links I've been saving appear claimed, but I'd like to test a couple keys. First three four replies gets their choice, first come first serve?
Organ Trail: Director's Cut (x2)
Broken Sword: Director's Cut
(Not sure if this needs to be in Crunchers Helping Crunchers or not. Was hoping this would get faster replies here.)
Edit: Redeemed a cheap one (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP) and it worked. Wasted the key since I've already owned it, but the above should be good.
I have had my 7970 mining, or crunching, since I got it months after release. Thing still overclocks to 1300mhz + so no degradation yet. It was on air for half that time too. I a sure there are a bad bunch out there sure, but most miners want their gpu's to have resale value meaning they shouldn't be burn up.
You ever see something and think, "Wow, that looks awfully familiar...."
Can't wait to see that bad boy in action
Edit because I don't want to double post:
What do you guys think of that intel avaton 8 core mini itx board. 8 cores @25w. If it managed 500ppd per core that would be 4000ppd total in a very low power system.
More on that intel avaton 8 core system I mention. Review, benchmarks, 32w total system load and amazon price.
I got an Asus too!
Oh what a tease you are . Can't wait to see more of that goodness!
Need to see moar letters!
Tski you are cruel
I'm short an 8-pin EPS connector. Trying to rig up something...
Correction... there were enough letters
Holy Crap! -
