    Hi! I'm from the Internet

    If you need a Dual core proc for that s939 rig when you get it let me know and i'll send you one. Also if theres some you need to keep the Phenom systems going let me know, I may be able to hook you up.

    Mad Shot and Ion, I may be open to some offers, but I'm still undecided yet. I think I'll make some decisions over the next week as to whether I want to patch up the dying/dead Phenom systems or not. My 2600K is averaging 7800 PPD in Linux and considering how little power it takes (like 100w or less while crunching), I'm seriously tempted to sell the CPUs when their boards break and catch a cheap 2600K and board for $300 to replace 2-3 tri/quad core Phenoms.

    I'd really like to get off my AM2+ chips since boards are becoming extremely rare, so I might as well start making plans to sell them before they become really hard to sell. That, and I'd like to eventually be free of 45nm or bigger node chips (excluding my 2 Thubans) because the performance/watt just isn't there. One big 16x4 rig would be the bee's knees but there's no way in hell I'm spending half my savings on one. :)

    You can always pick up the i7 980X in my FS thread and build a 12k ppd system (crunchers discount applies) ;)

    Each of my 7970's are pulling about 96K at stock clocks (925MHz) and the 7770's are pulling about 43K, and they are GHz cards.

    I am still waiting for my numbers to stabilize with the 7970's...
    I imagine your 3930K also helps with that increase. Do you have it overclocked?
    I am getting about 38k for each 7770.

    The 7870 with 6 wu's will get a 60-65k ppd in my main rig (stock clock on the gpu, 4.4Ghz on the cpu) :cool:

    So after all the hassle with the PSU leads, stuck the 7970 in the SR-2 with the 7950's. But it seems like it was a pointless move. Was getting 100K ppd on each 7950's before with 12WU but now with a 3rd card setup 8WU each to use full threads.. seems I'm getting the same output :shadedshu

    I tried dividing up the CPU cores to keep 12WU on each.. but as all the cards are stuck together they get quite hot and produces errors. So that's a no-no.

    Will be playing around see if I can figure out a way to get the correct performance out of this setup.:confused:

    It's looking like I may be selling the Phenom X4 soon (in addition to two as-of-yet unbuilt Core 2 Quad systems)--but if that ends up being the case, I have an AMD X2 5400+ BE/RAM/board/HSF sitting on the desk ready to replace it. I just can't afford the heat/maintenance of any more systems ATM :ohwell:

    The 7079's are at about 85,844 ppd each after 4 days...

    YOU can live with that....;)....We will have a similar setup - i970 and two 7970. Be a man and beat me. I plan to do 10 GPU x 2 for the 12 threads and I will (hope to is more correct) do 2 times +100K, All tricks are allowed including neck punch, knees and under belt. All talk and no GPUs from my side but I think that they will shipped today from Germany. I'm still/again in Thailand but I hope to meet the postman on Friday according to my last schedule (changed 3 times all ready). Game is on and you got one week to optimize :toast:

    Overclocked both CPU's to 4GHz and all 5 cards are running at 1100MHz core now:toast:
    I would raise them some more but I am leaving for Mexico this Friday and want them stable:)
    I am not sure about raising the WU's on the 7970's....

    The Phenom X4 has been sold (at a very solid profit too). I'll be setting up the AMD X2 5400+ (with a GTS450) in its place tonight.

    You saying your 7970s are stable at 1100 core? Wow :respect: I couldn't get mine stable over 1000, with temps in the 30's :eek: Awesome!

    My 2600K is back online and stable once again. Once I get my Display Port cable I will have the 580 back crunching workunits. With how cold it is now temps should be stellar :laugh:

    Tomorrow night I will be moving my i7 860 out of the SFF case and into its new home: a Corsair Carbide 200R. Will either sell the SFF case here on TPU or find something much more low power for it- maybe an APU or i3.

    OK, maybe I should have got some ASUS Matrix cards before I start this kind of challenge. Have a nice trip.

    Yeah - I was pretty impressed as it did not require a voltage bump. I will let them crunch away for the next couple days and see how they do...

    Awesome--is this the CPU from KieX?

    I know it's not as exciting, but I just brought this online about two hours ago to replace the sold Phenom X4:

    Should be just under 5k PPD by my calculations--not great, but certainly worthwhile :toast:

    That's one of them :) Going to run this one for awhile and then try the other to make sure they both work OK. So far so good though :toast:

    Nothing wrong with 5k ppd.... every point/every wu is important ;)

    Certainly LMK if they both work--I'd definitely love to pick up one from you ;)

    Indeed. That's still ~12x more than the Atom does, and more than my laptop does. I unfortunately will have to part with the GTS450 on Friday or Saturday (I picked it up at a good price locally and I'll be using it for an OCed Q6600 build for a friend of mine to replace an old Pentium 4). But it's certainly useful while it lasts :toast:

    Just wanted to drop in and say hello! I moved in September to San Antonio for my first big boy job and am living on my own, so money is still tight. Thankfully, the parental rig is still crunching away. Since the temps have cooled off, I'll see what a month of crunching while I'm at work looks like on the electricity bill when I'm back from a week long vacation starting next week.
    Norton says thanks.
