What are you Folding on?
sig rig + a pentiumD @3.3 with a gt240 in it folding and at the min my mums P4 has done a week of "Testing" lol
sig rigs is main ppd earner and i keep coming back to hangs lately.
just put a cheap 285 to fold for the team
Pete, I moved your router request to networking. You'll get alot more useful info there than from a bunch of grumpy ol' folders.
RIP Palit gtx280. It died again, and now I'm laying it to rest. Probably will hang it on the wall somewhere simply because of it's epic failure..... 9800gtx back in it's place. And still working on the router stuff, and thankyou!
Just so you all know, I'm folding this stuff in now upto 120f indoor temps. I can't afford the lousy extra $35 the landlord wants for me to plug in the ac, or else im just a cheap bastard.... my i7 system shipped today from a friend, 965ex cpu x58 mobo ect... anyone got a cheap 970 for sale?
I'm melting, think I'll have to let my boxes rest for a bit, no dam ac, its just too hot......
It's too hot, I have to shut down for 1-2 weeks, then the heat is over. I've only got 15amps, and my landlord wants money for my ac. I'm turning 50 this sept, so I'll be folding stupid! You all know from my history, that I always come back.
I wish I could get even lousy AC for $35. I pay over $200 a month that either goes to AC costs or running any or all of my rigs. The temps here have exceeded 100F for the past several months and during that same time the part of the AC on the roof that is called a condenser crapped out. While waiting for it to be replaced the only AC I had was a window unit. During that greater part of a month my living room exceed 100F day and night although my bedroom was liveable.
For the last few days thunderstorms have kept the temps down so I hope to add another rig.
It's just soo hot.... I'm a Canadian, 120f in my apt just does not sit with us.... makes us crazy!
Edit: I really tried! but only upto 2 weeks, and we go back to nice and cool up here....
Oh my gawd!!! AC!!! The floor is actually cool to the touch to my feet now. I missed AC so much.....
Edit: I feel so guilty..... not.... sorry, but I really need this. 2 weeks and the heat is over.....
Edit2: it's cool enough outside by midnight to shut down ac, open windows, suck in cool air
and fire back up both boxes. I'll have to shut them down every day, but I'll still produce ppd....
I wish my bill was that cheap, my bill was double that.
Well, now I know what 15 amps gets me. I was folding 3x gtx260s and a 9800gtx, plus running a 32" crt tv, plus my main system, plus a small ac unit.... breaker kickout. Bummer, looks like the ac unit is an amp sucker. I do have a 2nd 15 amp source in the form of 2 outlets in my kitchen, but I'd have to run cords to feed a folding box or something. Anyone know if a heavy duty extension cord could safely power a folding box?
Edit: I did this when I started a game on my main box, and fired up my 2 gtx285s......
I wouldn't trust an extension cord for a computer. You might get away with it for the a/c though, it cycles on and off and doesn't run 100% of the time. If you know an electrician, have him make you one. It would be chunky, but the safest bet.
Well, I'm off to another week in Chicago for the last time this year. Rigs will be up and running on Friday nite. Someone crank up some hardware to make up for my missing PPD!
I would if I could. I found out that being away from my rigs (now for 6 weeks) is about the same as not running them. They could do +100 K PPD but they are doing around 20 since they are not picking up new jobs. I will be back home in about 10 days. I miss the little heat generators
Edit: Hey were is my folding badge? Well, as I said...
Back in 1967 I was in Chicago twice. The first time I got a 3-day pass and took a bus to Wriggle Field to watch the Cubs. The other time I flew in and out of O'Hare Airport.
So in honor to the Cubs loosing that day and Buck's last visit to Chicago this year I'll have a 200K+ day sometime this week.
PS: This rig was already running before Buck's post.
Maker sure the Ext Cord is a 12/3 size and you should be fine. A 12/3 will easily handle 15 amps, but the weak link is in the receptacle contacts. Check the cord to make sure it's not getting too warm at the receptacle.
Dammit. Not sure what happened here... my E2140 machine is suddenly dead. There are some LEDs on on the motherboard, but when I hit the power, either the case power switch or the board power switch, nothing happens. Board dead?
Looks like it might be the power supply actually... paper clip test and the fans don't spin up (psu fan and case fans I left hooked up)
Remove anything that is hooked up to it and see what happens.
The only thing I left connected were those case fans. I've ran case fans off of jumped power supplies like this before, there shouldn't be any issues.
I confirmed it for a PSU issue late last night. Plugged in a spare 250w unit (just the main atx and cpu power) and the system came to life. I already bought a replacement, system should be up late next week provided the PSU didn't take anything else along with it when it became an hero.
