    Just remembered to check... Currently running Win 8 Pro x64, 7.0.42 x64, and 13.2b4 or 5.

    I haven't experienced what you describe. Have you tried the usual: uninstall/reinstall BOINC, AMD driver, and any gpu utilities?

    I'd have to look at my driver version, but I don't have any GPU utilities like Afterburner installed. I crashed again sometime in the middle of last night. I rebooted it yesterday evening because the green video was back and I wanted to watch some youtube clips. (Damn you, BTD5.)

    My 1090T cruncher turned off for some reason. Maybe overheating?

    The 7870 is in customs now. Should be here on monday or tuesday. Also got another 7770 :rockout:

    How hot was it getting? I know that AMD CPUs are comparatively very sensitive to heat.


    I've done a bit of GPU re-organization; the HD7930 is now in the 3930k system (instead of the DP Xeon).

    Definitely got the crunching bug! :laugh:

    Did the 1090T restart ok? What kind of psu are you using with it?

    I upped the 1090T speed to 3.4Ghz on the stock cooler. :eek: It ran fine for a week but it shut down today between 9am and 3pm. It didn't re-start at first until I unplugged the PSU :confused:

    I'm using a cheapo PSU ATM but I plan to get an Antec Earthwatts 380 for each cruncher.

    It could be the psu- one of my older crunchers used to overload the psu and cut out on occassion.

    Suggest downclocking the chip to 3.0Ghz to see if it runs ok until you get a better psu ;)

    He was thinking of selling his and upgrading to a different AMD card(s)...
    That was why he was curious what price I was selling mine for:)

    My points might be down a bit for the weekend. I want to bring my reference 7970 home and try it out in my gaming rig as my XFX 7950 has been a POS lately. Yesterday the system froze with a blank screen, and a few days earlier I was using my PC and got the vertical stripes of death on the desktop. I also had to raise the core voltage by 10mV as Skyrim crashed about 30 minutes in when I first started playing it last weekend after over a year of not playing it. It also does this rare desktop "flicker" that happens for a split second and I haven't seen this on my other Tahitis, but maybe it's my 120Hz monitor.

    Bringing my Gigabyte Windforce home is another option, but it needs a much higher core voltage for 1150MHz (1.150v real) compared to my reference 7970 and XFX 7950 that are roughly the same (1.08v real). The one thing I hate about the 7970 is the stock cooler, which is super noisy above 50%. I'll try it out first and see how bothersome it is in my home computer that's in the computer rack part of my L-shaped computer desk.

    A possibility, but under Win7 when I was running 24 or more threads across the three cards temps were always in the mid 50's C under load. Using water still on these.

    Welp, this 7970 is pretty loud, but I put a laptop bag behind my PC and it's little nook in my desk to dampen the whooshing noise being reflected off the wall. I wonder if I can do some ghetto foam insulation work on the inside of my side panel to cut down on the noise a bit, as it doesn't help that nearly all the surfaces in a PC are hard and flat lol. My XFX's stock cooler was much louder to be honest, so I'm glad it isn't at THAT level of noise again. :roll:

    That looks like some good fun right there and a solid addition to you crunchers. :)

    Being that I just won a 7770, I'm still in the process of putting together a rig, really in need of a CPU/mobo.

    My goal is to eat pie at least once :D After I have everything setup I'll run at full output for a week (crunchers + rigs), hopefully I'll eat pie by the end of said week.

    This board:

    http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=300715

    and this CPU:

    http://www.microcenter.com/product/398006/Core_i3_3225_33GHz_LGA_1155_Boxed_Processor

    for $145 plus tax.

    It's 13..2 beta 4 as well. However, I just realized crossfire was enabled. Maybe that's it?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Alright crunching buddies, In the week or so I will have 2 crunching rigs up for sale. Both are phenom II rigs. One is a x2 555 unlocked to x4 and running at 3.5 and the other is an 970 be rig. I can sell these as a mobo/cpu/mem and gpu combo or turn key complete how they are running right now minus the OS. If anyone is interested please pm me for more details. I am offering to you guys first before making a fs thread. Also I believe there's enough of you that can vouch for me as a seller. I am cutting my fleet back when I move into my new house in the coming weeks. I also have my "Selene" build to finish and looking for some cash to finish it.
