    Not sure if I mentioned this anywhere yet, but my mother is back for her 2nd month long visit at a cancer treatment centre. Turns out it's lymph node cancer. And she's 73. However, a possible miracle, it may have gone into remission. She has another full exam around Jan2, and we should know for sure. Whatever you guys are doing, keep doing it!

    I also experienced your 2nd point (bold) with my 560Ti. It takes about 30 seconds to start, stopped for about a minute or two at 49.707%-50.000% and stopped again at 99.707% for about a minute. So I guess its normal.

    I'm crunching under Win7 x64 though, not Win8.

    Regarding driver crashes when running multiple WU, have you tried the registry fix from KieX's guide?

    God bless your mother and your family.
    Wish the best of luck for your mother and your family. :toast:

    This is normal. Most of the WU is done assisted by the GPU, but there are parts that run CPU-only. That's what happens at 49.707 and 99.707. There is also a little bit of CPU-only computation that has to happen as it gets started ;)

    So all is as it should be :toast:

    Yup, I figured it out when I saw Afterburner monitoring graph. No GPU load at all when the pause happens.

    I did go into the registry looking for:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Watchdog]
    "DisableBugCheck"="1"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Watchdog\Display]
    "EaRecovery"="0"
    The problem is that (maybe I'm doing something wrong) the reg keys don't exactly line up in Win 8. In that key above in Windows 8, the "Watchdog" is under "currentcontrolset," not "control," and then the values that I'm supposed to changed to change are nonexistent.

    But I just came back to my pc after several hours, and it's chugging along nicely under Win7, running 10 WUs/card and finishing in ~8+ minutes, on average. I suppose that I should post this under the Guide for Multi GPU WUs instead of this thread :eek:

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thing that registry keys is the handle for TDR error checking/reporting and recovery. By changing those values, basically we're making our PC ignoring any TDR errors.

    Sorry can't help you much, currently I don't have any PCs running with Win8.

    EDIT : I did find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Watchdog on my Win7 PC though.
    Oh wait, I found it because yesterday I imported .reg files containing those values :laugh:

    Started testing the computer parts after yesterday's mishap. Thankfully both 7950 are fine as is the i7 2700K. Can't tell ya how relieved I am about that. The HX1000 I'm going to leave dry for much longer and use a backup PSU instead.

    But RAM and motherboard are both toast. Had I not powered off the rig quickly the damage could have been a whole lot worse. Time to see what corsair support are like with this kind of thing.

    Going to house the GPU's in the rigs I was going to sell, hopefully should be back at full output before the new year.

    That is great news. Wish her all the best with the upcoming exams, hopefully that'll be the end of it :toast:

    Better to be out $150-200 of stuff rather than $1000. At least those ASRock motherboards and DDR3 come relatively cheap.

    I know a member over at [H]ard forums had a very similar problem with an H80 a couple of months ago. He contacted Corsair and explained that it fried his motherboard, video card, power supply and memory. Corsair had him ship all his fried parts to them, and low and behold Corsair replaced all of the bad components. :rockout:

    I would not hesitate explaining to them all the stuff that it destroyed man. :toast: chances are they will replace all of it bro.

    Nothing less is acceptable. Who dares to buy a "easy" water cooling system if it fails? Most (sorry if I offend some) who buy this kind of system is novices in alternative cooling and if word get around it is unsafe that big niche is lost for these 3-4 producers. I'm sure that if Kiex doesn't get fully compensated this forum will have its say.

    I've heard of that in multiple occasions. They seem to have excellent customer service.

    My oldest PC, #2 in my sig, the one I used for crunching (and everything but folding) died this morning. :mad: I had to transfer all the important bits (ie. the hard disk) to my folding box (#3 in my sig). While I won't be folding until I build a new PC for daily use, I'm STILL crunching and probably getting more work done 'cuz it has a better CPU. :rockout:

    Do you know what's wrong with it? I may be able to help you find the parts that would be needed to repair it if you'd like.

    Thanks, but I don't think it's fixable. I it sprang a very small leak in the water cooling reservoir. No biggie. It's really old. A P-35 with a dual-core Conroe CPU. It was a good PC while it lasted. I built it in 2008. Overclocked the crap outta it and it ran ice cold the whole time.

    Time to build a Ivy-bride PC. I'm having fun surfing Newegg. :)

    Until you press Submit Order and watch your bank account empty. :roll:

    Just updated my FS thread as well and lowered some prices. I also apparently didn't post the right picture for the M3A78-CM combo but it's fixed as I luckily remembered how the pictures were numbered when uploaded to TPU. :)

    Was likely going to list my 2600k tonight, for about $225 if you wanted to save some $$ over a 3770k.
