Anybody got a GPU to help out Mad Shot?
Let's try and get those ppd back for him!
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.
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.
I don't have any extra PCI-E cards, I have a ton of AGP cards though
Right there with you. I have enough Agp cards to choke a small horse.
Hey Mad_Shot, I have an ole PCIe Nvidia 7300LE that is passive cooled that I could throw in a box and ship ya man!
Shoot me your address again, and I will get it out first thing tomorrow morning.
I know, it isn't much, but it will get that puppy back up and running again..........Hmm, maybe I don't want you up and running!
Just kidding brother, shoot me your addy again.
Pm sent. also that is about the same not much that I took out
can it play crysis?
Nah just put my in a Crisis.
Going to be down for the rest of the weekend, have to replace my motherboard and work on some cable management
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.
Nah just mine is dead.
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.
Great deal on a 128GB SSD at newegg today. Same one I've been wanting but I'm too broke to buy it atm.
Many MANY thanks to Norton. Swapped out the 3870 in wife's PC for a 5770. So far so good.
That 5770 should run a lot better than the 3870 you had in there..... wifey will likey
Yeah. Now im getting some issues with doing file copys on her 1TB black but pulling a backup and going to do a reformat.
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.
It doesn't want to go just yet
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!
I haven't gotten any beta's for a lil while now.
AMD Athlon x2 255 @ 60% Added
Maybe I'll grab a 2500k + P8P67 Pro 3.1 for 200$
And going to add this week: Dual-xeon E3-1230 (3.2ghz, 4 core, 8 thread, total of 8 core 16 thread) maybe at 30-40%
I have Beta's on 2 of my systems for Computing for Sustainable Water
Not sure if anybody noticed but Twilyth is no longer crunching for TPU.
