    Yeah, at least the problem is with an old machine and hardware this time. I get really pissed when good hardware breaks like my GTX 470 and Corsair SSD (in my main rig I just upgraded from a 2nd gen to a 3rd gen i7 platform nonetheless). I've been extremely lucky with hard drives for years but I think it's about the right time that I get hit with a bunch of failing ones.

    @ion Just have a 2600k with a 6990 and the 3930k with the twin 7770's. I have a bad habit of shipping mother boards and CPU's to other members.:laugh:

    The other 3930k will be up and running soon. Have a 800D and a 650D that realy want to be filled with parts.:)

    Now we just wait for those AMD (yours mj and all the rest of you) to get something to work on. I put my eggs in two baskets since I'm off to bed. One rig has a GPU only app_info in place and the other is working on 12 CPU jobs and the odd GPU.

    My HD7770 is now crunching again! :toast:

    I've switched that system over to a purely HCC diet, and I'll be installing the app_info file again tomorrow AM :toast:

    How can i get WCG to use both my GTX460 and GTX465 that are both in the same computer?

    On WCG it shows both of them and beside the gtx465 it says (not used).

    the gx465 is the 2nd card that doesn't have a display on it.

    For that we thank you :toast:

    Create a file in the BOINC Data folder called cc_config.xml
    In it, paste the following:

    Can't wait to get home and get those babies cranking; I got to game a bit the last 2 days so I'm feeling good! :rockout: :rockout: :rockout:

    That's right, I remember when you first PM'd me that [Ion] weeks back, good stuff right there.

    Well, I've ordered the RAM for my new ITX setup--now to just go ahead and get a CPU, mobo, and GPU. Thinking I'll get a Pentium G860, some board, and an 8800GT 512.
    Hope to have it crunching within two weeks :toast:

    Well, I'm not convinced that a 5-year-old GPU and a Pentium CPU counts as a "beast" but I do appreciate the support :)

    Hey at least it'll look awesome! I never had an 8800, just a 7600 and a 9800 lol

    On another note, I'm finishing up a little CPU work before switching over, running 1 WU per card, as i'm on Windows 8 right now, and anything more will result in driver crash. However, in a little bit, before going to bed, I'll be off to Windows 7 running some real work!!!!

    Haha thanks! I was actually debating to post in the pie thread saying, "I'm coming for you pie!"
    hehe, here's my chance instead!

    also, I'm noticing that the HCC CPU WUs go quicker than the other CPU work I've done in the past few days. I do believe I heard that thouhg before.

    FX-8150 is back online and will crunch when my mom hasn't moved the mouse for 3 minutes. Somehow the RAID 5 array stayed intact even though I moved all 4 drives to a different board. :)

    So long as it's CPU-only crunching, why don't you let it run 24/7?

    My parents are paranoid about having the computer being laggy during use. You and I know that it usually isn't a problem but I'm just happy to have permission to crunch at all on their machines, so I try to make it pain free since I don't always have access to the computers when they do stuff. I'm confident that it will still output decent numbers and it's better than having no rig at all. ;)

    I now have a gtx 465 and gtx 460 crunching and my i7 is pushing 4.3ghz. The GTX 465 is so loud and hot. Its beggging for watter cooling in the near future.

    Can anyone recommend a fairly cheap blcok (full cover or GPU only doesn't ,matter. ) for the 465 and a GPU only block for the 460(Asus,non-ref so needs to be GPU only,since the holes for the GPU are ref.)

    I'm not worried about the 460 but i can't stand the noise of the 465.

    Also Thank you Ion(i already pushed the button) for the help on getting both GPUs working.
    That could also help others out.


    Sorry for errors and ra,bleing its 2:35am and i'm on some good pain meds(and a lot of it) so i'm really out of it.
    Its time for me to sleep,but the crunchers never sleep :D

    Well, as much as I enjoyed Windows 8 and my ssd, I'm back on WIndows 7 and the old hdd. The plus side is that the GPU WUs are back now in full force, from the look of it, and hopefully everything will be nice and smooth as I leave it over night. I don't want to wake up and find an error! :banghead:

    I hope all of you had a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Don't worry I am still around and kicking. :rockout:

    Anyone else looking at Haswell when it hits? :)

    My cards still alive and kicking some arse?

    They are wicked loud. Now just imagine a pair of them stuffed right together--with the fans at 100%. Not pleasant at all :p

    Something I've seen is using a Kuhler H2O 620 and a DWood bracket (search for it--it's a guy at OCN that makes an aluminum bracket to use an all-in-one CPU cooler on a GPU). Very affordable :)

    Yes! Your EVGA GTX 460s are still running perfectly, and they are a great asset for my F@H contributions. :)
