470's aren't that old, so i was expecting to get the same back. MSI is one and the other is a Zotac. One of them did mention that equal or better would be the replacement. I have one GTX 570. Getting a replacement 570 would be awesome.

build log of next build

had some fun with this build, i normally build the rig out side the case just to make sure that it work but of cores im to clever for that mobo was
dead on arrival DOA so i had to completely disassemble my rig after it was all cable manage and finished. then had to start the problem solving
routine to find out why it was not booting after a few hour trying lots of different components working gpus different ram, power supply taking it
out of the case re-seating the cpu cooler and so on i found it was iver the mobo or the cpu so i got them RMAed as i could not prove witch
one it was any way it waws the mobo so on with the build...

system spec's
2600k
NHD14
gigabyte z68xud4-b3
corsair CX600
corsair dominator 1600 9,9,9,24 ram 4 GB
old 8600 GT 256
case un-know sever case i got given
WD 2TB green
win7 pro 64bit


time for some pics

tried it out side rig this time lol

Shot at 2011-09-24

had to take the heatsink off one of the dominator ram sicks to fit it under the NHD14

Shot at 2011-09-24

this case does have a mobo tray so i fix the fans to the out side, one thing with the case is it has NO cable management holes
so you have to become inventive so i hid the fan cable to the molex and the fan signal wire to the broad under the mobo itself


Shot at 2011-09-24

Shot at 2011-09-24

next think to do was to mount it in the case i though this was going to be pian less but it wasn't the NHD 14 was to big for the mobo tray to fit backin
to the case so i had to modify the case a little it was easy as i only had to take a cm of the case off to make it all fit (showed in pic)


Shot at 2011-09-24

Shot at 2011-09-24

next was to put in the cpu power lead that was a little bit difficult had no rom to move but with a little bit of think an easy way came about


Shot at 2011-09-24

Shot at 2011-09-24

next was to mount the psu and sart the cable management

Shot at 2011-09-24

forgot to take a pic of the back but was nutting special put all other hardware in and jobs a goodon next put windows on and get it folding

re- plumbed rig and move the 360 to the back of the case so it gets cold air and added a 56mm 120mm rad in the bottom to get temp down a bit, moved upto 1/2 tubing and compression fitting completely clean out all the block and rads on the x58 rig. temps down by 10-12c not bad

core2duo 7200@3.1Ghz. Running CentOS, manipulated from main rig.

PPD: 3200
Watt usage on load : 102v * 0.8A = 81.6W
PPD/Watt = 39 (pretty bad, but keeps room warmer)

That's a high tech usage of a simple cardboard box I spot an empty PCI-E Slot, maybe you could throw in a GPU to upgrade the heater

I have GeForce8800 in my closet, however I couldn't get it to work. It fetches old projects with 0 credit. I guess the card got listed out.

Strange, according to the whitelist, the 8800 GPUs are whitelisted so they should be able to get WUs:

0x10de:0x0191:2:1:G80 [GeForce 8800 GTX]
0x10de:0x0193:2:1:G80 [GeForce 8800 GTS]
0x10de:0x0194:2:1:G80 [GeForce 8800 Ultra]

What F@H Client version are you using? Do note that few days ago, there was an issue with the GPU2 Servers and that caused those Pre-Fermi GPUs to stop folding. Do note that these GPUs will no longer be getting new Projects, just the existing ones. Wouldn't mind helping you out if you want to setup those GPUs

Thank you very much for looking into it, PantherX.
I am/was using 7.2.9 when I was trying to get it work on windows.

I'll hook wine on linux and see if I can get 8800 going.

I assume that you are aware of WINE. If not, here's the guide (http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=6793) that works fine. However, the last page or so may have some unique troubleshooting steps,depending on what distro you are using.

Thanks, I get around 100,000 PPD, sometimes up to 140,000. It honestly depends alot on the workunit. My name is currently "mlindemannDesktop2" and I am folding on my own little mini team at the moment.

nice and clean rig, 907rider.

That rig would be a waste of specs if it were only for gaming. Good luck!

iancook how do you get so many ppd out of your rig? what are you running for hardware?

Thanks sverek! I actually built this guy to run CAD and Solid Works for the next 4-5 years, hardly any gaming actually.

Any tips or tricks for me guys? i've only been folding a couple months now, and dont really do anything other then OC my CPU and GPU's a bit and let it run in Windows 7 while i'm at work. (as a bi-product it heats the upstairs of my house quite nicely which is important because I live in Alaska)

If you posted the initial section of your log, we can see how the client is configured and can then suggest some ideas. Off the top of my head, your configuration should be something like this:
SMP: 10
GPU: 0
GPU: 1

The reason for 10 instead of 12 is because any interruptions will slow down SMP so with 2 CPUs free, the OS can use that to feed the GPUs, and other light applications and the SMP isn't disturbed often.

update to the new configuration of the rig's the servers got a new case fractal design Arc XL. the water cooling has all move inside and now should have space for 12HDD+2SSD




modded the side panel to fit some 120mm fan for more air flow made the cpu temps go down by 10c and the gpu's sit at about 60c with a little OC




my daily driver now with the 780's and 4 120mm in the side panel and 2 in the top all cut out with a 120mm hole saw
