    Man that sucks. I've been tempted lately to turn my oc down some just so i don't burn it up. I only have the one.

    I so would if I had them with me. I won't be getting them back till end of month.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet

    Hell I don't even overclock my system in fear of frying something. I constantly check temps on everything. I guess the card just was crap to begin with. But I do love (sarcastically) the way Ubuntu handles hardware failures. Damn thing booted to a command prompt and acted as if the gui was hosed. I was almost to the point of loading win vista on it. Then the artifacts started and I said hmm. Let me try the card from the other system. When I pulled the card it was hot as hell but the fan was running. So I am not even going to try and see if I can revive it. My luck is next time it decides to act up it will take the rest of the system with it.

    Well the gpu is officially dead. This morning I thought maybe I would pop off the heat sink a apply some new thermal paste. Well the system booted and ran for a few minutes then the monitor shuts off. Nothing from the card since.

    Read that and for a fraction of a second thought I'd somehow clicked on a news thread and I was like, fuck, now there's going to be 20 pages of whining, 30 of bitching, 15 about how consoles are better, 80 about how they aren't . . . and that this is why I talk to the cat.

    Well I hate to acknowledge this but it seems my main rig board is failing. I was told to try lowering the cpu volatge and removing a channel of ram. I did both and it seemed fine after that. But come today its still running sluggishly and hard freezing. I fear the cpu might be going bad or due to weak vrms. I still have audio and video, mouse still moves but I can't click anything and nothing responds. So I may be looking to replace this board when I get the funds. Its in my sys specs. I'd hate not to be able to use this cpu anymore since I haven't been using it very long. I'll have the new one up and running maybe by next wkend so basically this will be getting replaced completely. Hopefully I can revive this one though as its my fav since I put alot of time into it.

    So everyone don't be alarmed if my numbers happen to drop drastically sometime during the wk as I don't know when this board will crap out on me. I'll be posting over in crunchers helpin crunchers to try and get ahold of a am2+ replacement.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    You know what a real bitch is? I get my proc and memory in today for the next cruncher. Install proc with heatsink and memory and get ready to get this thing up and going. Well I though (which I shouldn't do after 5) I would do the right thing by Wcg and stop new task on the cruncher this new one is going to replace. I'll let if finish the ones it on and suspend the others and abort them so this new machine can pick up where that one leaves off. Yeah right. I be damn if that shit isn't sitting on a couple beta's right now. So it looks like tomorrow evening before I can get the new one running. I mean that thing never I mean never gets betas. Go figure when I go to pull the plug on it it has some waiting.

    What beta's are running? My rigs have been getting hit with high priority WU's all day but haven't seen any beta's


    Saying "beta's" around my 6870 is like saying "cookies" near a puppy! :laugh:
