    Would a high flow 120mm delta fan or similar work if strapped onto the top? It looks like the cover over the sink directs the air anyway?

    :(
    Can you at least move the GTX580s into a different system for now?

    The problem is the gpu's sit on top of it. I posted on another forum to see if some one switched to w/c and might want to get rid of their's, if not then I'll have to find a water block.

    It should.. the problem is clearance for GPU's. The fan sits midboard, so depends what configuration he's using. Air through side slots could work maybe. Not sure about temperatures though.. all untested mythical solutions.

    Looking at that picture, if you put one GPU in the very last PCIe slot and one in the very first, there should be room for at least an 80MM fan to go overtop the SB heatsink (obviously after removing the fan and top cover). Could you try that?

    I could but it's too much work, might swap some hd's around and run the 980x with 3 gtx480's.

    There's heat sinks on the top and bottom of the fan and there's no real way to force air in there with all the gpu's. If I only ran one in the bottom slot it might work, I'll have to see how it pans out on getting another though.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    f150, Can you pull the fan and try oiling it? Also I am not sure if you noticed but the rig you are crunching with now is putting out more points per day then your 48 core rig. It just truly amazing how much the gpu's put out.

    The bearing is shot, oiling won't help. I did find it online and ordered 2 so I'll have a spare. It won't be here for a week or two though.

    Well, at least you have a couple replacements, so this won't be an issue in the future :toast:

    Just how many systems and GPUs do you have? :eek:
    3 GTX580s, 3 GTX480s, a SR-2, two 980Xs, an AMD 48P.... :eek:

    48 core server-Norton's using
    980x with a Gts450-Norton's using
    980x with 3 gtx480's
    950 with 2 gtx570's
    875k with 2 gts450's
    Sr-2 with 3 gtx580's

    If I ran every thing my electric bill would be more than most people's mortgage!:laugh:

    Wow...that's absolutely amazing. So many high end GPUs...that destroys my 2 GTX460s and 2 GTX470s :rolleyes: :respect:

    I can't even imagine running all of that....so much electricity :eek:

    Even I cringe at the electricity that those GPU's would draw:twitch:.

    I think the GPUs alone would be ~2kw, maybe a bit more. :eek:
    Although, with your two 4P systems, isn't that ~1.6kw or so? Still an awful lot IMO...

    Could you imagine his ppd if he did run all them at once?

    That's why I shut them all down in F@H, smp was the only way to go as far as ppd per watt.

    If I can get a job soon, we might see what it's like. I still have to catch MW, and if he powers up his gpu's it's going to be a struggle to get there.:D

    Yeah, Buck's 4P rig getting 400k+ PPD from 800w is pretty amazing. If I switched everything I have over to FAH, I'd probably get ~100k PPD from a combination of SMP & GPU, but for about 1000w AC.

    I hope you can start going after Mindweaver again--a battle can only be good for the Team!

    I would love to see a battle. I wonder If I could even touch Norton(And his GPU's) for Cherry Pie with both my 4P rigs crunching. It will happen eventually;).

    Not going to happen today though ;)

    With the aid of F150's 2 rigs, dumping the working from the 2 off-site rigs and the GPU WU's I'm aiming for over 100k points today.... I'm at 93k now with 4 hours to go :pimp:

    Will fire up the new rig again shortly and let that crunch for the rest of the day just to make sure :D

    100K :twitch:Very nice.

    We will meet on the field of battle very soon(minus the racial/religious slurs that accompany Mel Gibson nowadays).

    I'll be dropping back a bit after a little while but I'll keep my output up to meet your Twin 4P's of Terror on the battlefield when you're ready. :cool:

    Showoff :p

    I'm at 41k so far with 3 hours to go. Will probably end up somewhere near 43-44k once everything totals out. I'm shooting for the low 60s once I have the i920/GTX470 set up :toast:

    I love that name :D :D :D :D :D :roll:
