Been teasing you guy's for awhile and I've had it running for a couple of weeks now on 2x 970's, but the K9A2 Platinum died(respect). Should have the replacement Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 early next week. Until then, the cards just sit and await their new Queen. Hopefully the PSU is up to the task, but I'll try it with 4x cards first to see the load. I've got some housekeeping to do with the cabling before the Mobo arrives. Still have 2x 970's Folding in another rig which is the source of all my production right now, but hopefully will move them over to this rig in the near future.

K9A2 Platinum died(respect).
I tried reviving my K9A2 too. Installed Ubuntu, all was well, but once I put it back in the case, Nada, Zip, Zilch.
I'm shopping on Newegg for a new machine. Won't be near as extreme as Buck's, we'll see what we will see. ;)

Mobo arrived today and the rig is folding now. 2x 970's overclocked and 2x 970's stock. Gotta hack my xorg.conf in order to overclock/change fans on the last 2 cards. Currently pulling 624W at the wall, so i think I'll be good with 6x 970's on this rig. Currently producing 1.1M PPD:clap:. Should pick up another 100K after the overclock on the last 2 cards. There is so little heat coming off this rig!!!

So isn't that ~double the PPD of one the 4P with ~2/3 the watts?

Finally overclocked all 4 cards to 1528mhz and I hope they are stable. Fans @ 50% and core temps are 45-50c. Drawing 641w at the wall now.:rockout:That's approx 1900 PPD/Watt.

That's some crazy high ppd with some sweet OCs, low noise, very low power.




That makes me all jelly and want my own 970 now, even more than before.

I'd go for a 4350 instead, better IPC than the 4130 and higher clocks. Either that or a 4300; has the same clocks as the 4130 but 95w TDP.

I already bought the FX 4150 for $39.00. The higher base clocks may give better PPD production(something that @mstenholm and myself have been working on).

NVIDIA folders still need 1 core per card, so I'm afraid you may run into issues scaling beyond four with that CPU. Sick setup though!

NVIDIA folders still need 1 core per card, so I'm afraid you may run into issues scaling beyond four with that CPU. Sick setup though!
I have a x6 1055t that I can swap in for when the 2 other cards are moved over this weekend, so I should be fine. I might grab a FX8120/8150 just to have a few extra core buffer as well.

With the fact of how cool and efficient this rigs is, I have decided to run it 24/7/365. Did some calculations and should be at 1 Billion points in 6 months.:rockout:

Trying to add card # 6 and having issues with the OS. I'm installing a fresh copy of 14.10 now, so keep your fingers crossed.
