    Congrats HammerOn on the house and the baby, both super exciting and exhausting! ;) :laugh:
    I hope it all works out swiftly and easily for you and your family :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am officially out of gpu work and all rigs have been switched over to cpu work.

    Keep a gpu open for work- I've received more gpu work earlier today (X, C, and M wu's)

    I've dropped about 150 pages of "in progress" work but still have nearly 1,500 pages of wu's waiting to go. ;)

    Congratulations Heath! :toast:

    I just hit 70m :D

    I too have pretty much stopped receiving work--all of my crunchers will remain online, of course, but I expect to be completely out of GPU work soon :ohwell:

    I'm going to be pulling the 3930k offline for a bit tonight--I'm going to add the second radiator to the loop.

    I think I'll be able to get into the 10mill club before running out :peace:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    The 2 rigs that where doing gpu work are still open to do work. I just killed the app info file and they can do both now with gpu work taking priority if it comes in. So I still have all 4 gpu's in waiting for that just in case moment. :toast:

    The 3930k/HD7930 is now out of comission--I took apart my loop to add the second radiator, only to find that it was fully of green growth. And when I tried to re-build the loop with tubing from a friend (left over from a fountain project) it leaked. So I'm obviously not going to put the system on that. And the 300GB boot drive seems to have taken a dump. I'll be ordering new tubing tomorrow, but I don't expect to have things going again before maybe Tuesday :(

    I would be worried about your blocks, pump and res as well. You need to flush them all out really well. Sucks to have issues with water loops:(
    I would take the water loop out of your case (unattached from your computer) and set it up somewhere to a separate power supply and run a mixture of distilled water and vinegar. Run the mixture, empty and repeat the process several times. Then run distilled water only to get rid of the vinegar. I would go so far as to take your block(s) apart, your pump apart and inspect them real close. Clean them as needed.
    EDIT: Also check all of your fittings real close.

    You'll get it figured out Kai :toast: This sounds familiar though:

    My queues are starting to drop. I get see the grabber on the scroll bar getting bigger :(

    I'm in a silly situation where I am still strong on HCC GPU work && keep getting new GPU WUs. But I am long out of HCC CPU WUs.
    *sigh* At this point, I'd love more HCC CPU work - it builds ups run time much faster. "but... but... muh gold!"

    Well, I boiled the fittings and waterblock for about fifteen minutes. I also poured obiling water through the res/pump combo and then the radiator and gave them a good shake--I did this twice. Would this have been sufficient?

    I can probably make time to go to the store this weekend to get more distilled and vinegar.

    I'm wondering though, how did this even happen in the first place? I used what should have been more than enough of the biocide :(

    I don't like biocide anymore. I tried PT Nuke before, and both times he water went brown. Never had that with plain water. If it was algea it was probably due to too much sunlight. If it was corrosion, it's due to copper and aluminum both being in the loop, which is somewhat prevented by the coolant they include with it.

    So I should put in nothing? Would a splash of the Thermaltake antifreeze stuff be at all useful?

    I don't think a splash would do much of anything.

    As far as my GPU WU status, I woke up this morning and my main rig was out. Two of my other rigs had started receiving CPU work, though they still had a lot of GPU work left. The other rig still had all GPU work.

    I only use distilled water and a silver kill coil.

    Thanks. I assume that copper sulfate is a sufficient substitute for the kill coil?

    BTW, I'm now out of GPU work on the GTX470s as well, so they're folding away. Just under 35k PPD for the pair (certainly less than I would have expected).

    That's better than the 6K each of my 7950/7970s are getting. :p

    I thought that the silver coil was a real piece of silver, and that it prevents microbial growth. That's why silver is used on some anti-microbial keyboards & mice (Seal Shield).

    They're doing that badly?? :(

    I just expected more out of the GTX470s, given that the GTX550Ti does right at 15k PPD.

    I have used distilled water and a silver kill coil for a couple years and then last year I took my loop apart and I had all kinds of issues. Sometimes that combo works well (as it did for several of my builds) and others not so well (many factors - corrosion, sun light, bacteria already in loop, etc...). That is why I went for this stuff:
    http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6..._Clear_-_700cc_LIQ-702CL-B.html?tl=c337s890b4
    A little expensive but I like the peace of mind:)

    Just over 1,000 pages for my rigs. I'm dropping 200 or so pages per day so I should have enough to make it to Sunday. Will likely have to reach my 45 Million stone w/o gpu assistance :banghead:

    ** EDIT- Here's the MSDS for the stuff HammerON just mentioned:

    http://koolance.com/files/products/manuals/msds_koolance_liq-702.pdf

    70% Distilled and 27% Propylene Glycol- I would use this in a loop if I built one ;)

    FYI- Tap water contains many many MANY bacterial/organic particles... never use it in a loop unless you're trying to breed Algae

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I use distilled water with a 25% mix of Auto Antifreeze.

    I just pick up another load of gpu x units on one of my rigs.
