90C on an AMD chip?
Good think you got it fixed!
It's a laptop chip. It takes it like a boss. (Trottling is at 97°c)
It has spent tons of time at 80°c and decent time at 90+°c.
That was before I noticed it's tendency to get very hot. Not it's strangled to keep it at acceptable levels. :S
Can't wait to get my 7970 and see how it does with the GPU WUs. Thursday can't come soon enough.
Damn. My i7-QM runs at ~80C most of the time--sometimes it gets hotter, but I do try to prevent it from getting appreciably hotter.
That will be absolutely sick. I'd imagine you should do at least as much as my i7-2700k system, from one GPU.
Is this a present from your wife?
I would like to know what you think of this psu 620W ATX SEASONIC R-S12II-620 i can have a good deal for two of those
it will be for amd fx 8150,8Gb memory,and i will probably add 1 or 2 gpu in the future if it needs.remember this rigs will be dedicated crunsher 24/7
If by present, you mean she didn't care if I bought it, then yes.
I use an Antec HCG 620 which uses the Seasonic internals from that model I believe. Mine has been running perfect and would have no issue putting an FX-8150 on it and a high end gpu.
*Note- it should only have 2x PCIE connectors so you would be limited to 1x7870/7950/7970 or 2x 7850/7770
Got a 7770. Removed Nvida drivers. Installed latest Catalyst for 32 bit XP. Now I lost to option to run GPU crunching (it is not in the drop down under activities) and that was the only reason I changed to the red camp.
Edit: XP 32 bit and 12.8 does not play....I have to install it in a WIN 7 PC.
Do they appear listed on the Event Log? You can force a check by running Benchmark.
EDIT: Saw you updated the post. Hope that works. Got my 7770's doing 3 WU each and it's good for 27K in that configuration.
you could probably do around 60K PPD with that card
It is currently using 0-1% according to Z-GPU so I think there is room for some more CPU/GPU WUs. It replaced a 260 that took 7-8 min. This does it in 2:20. Not bad.
I personally use MSI Afterburner as you can track the load and temperature over time. Looks like you got plenty of headroom, probably your card has better clocks than mine so you should be more than fine to load up 3 WU. You're gonna be loving that red card
My internet at home is back up from last night. The modem tripped out when charter did some maintiance and it was off all day until I got home and reset it. I remoted in this morning after the first 4 runs of WU have been crunched so I have not yet received the dreaded "NO WU READY" thing.
I have two builds in the mix as we speak. I think I may have another cruncher to add to the pile if everything goes well with TMS.
Also I may be in the market for some more used parts soon. I have a spare AM2 motherboard on the way and will probably need a AM2 (Windsor or brisbane) chip along with another 2x1GB DDR2.
Those are very solid PSUs--I think they'll serve you well!
Well, you can always use Molex-PCIe adapters
Two HD7850s wouldn't really be that much to run off of a quality 620w PSU--my EA650s only have two PCIe 6-pins, but I know that I could run two GTX460s/GTX470s and an OCed quad off of them with no issues
I can probably help you out with RAM and possibly with a CPU
I was just trolling Ebay and sniped a "AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ - ADO4000IAA5DD" CPU for 13$ shipped!!! Its a brisbane 65NM chip!! So now below is the new configurations but I will still need 2x1GB DDR2 either 667Mhz or 800Mhz.
ECS Geforce6100SM-M V1.0 (Purchased)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ - ADO4000IAA5DD (Purchased)
2x1GB DDR2 (NEED)
MSI 785GTM Motherboard
(unknown CPU, maybe have the hookup from TMS)
2x1GB DDR2 800mhz Corsair XMS2
PM me--I can get some RAM sent your way
Got three running for the past hour without errors. Time went up to around 4 min (from 2:30).
That's really awesome!
This is for a HD7850, right?
Nope a 7770, GHz model.
That sounds good. Should get some nice PPD from that, mine take 4:40 on average.
I think you just answered my question about what card(s) I need in my next system
I'm registering 260W for three of them.. with idle CPUs.. these 7770 are great PPD/Watt. ~27K <80W? Probably cheap second hand too.
Among the fastest according to the WCG tech keeping track of performance:
These remind me of the GTX 460 in F@H a while back
I'm wondering why the 8800GT is showing up so high on that list you linked to???
You can't even run the GPU WU's on a G80/G92 card, correct?
No idea why it's there.. might have been an odd WU that was completed? There's a second list below that main one where it no longer appears.
My P55 system just started acting up again today. It's locking up in 30 minutes or less and I have made no changes to the system in weeks. Going to try and find out what may be wrong with it since it is one of my main Windows folding/crunching rigs.
