  1. A little package showed up today Aluminium profiles and a few bags of hardware! And this is what it looks like for now, will have to do some testfitting soon to start working on custom brackets etc. I have a few spare profiles, not sure about the layout yet..

  2. In memory of Micheal Hertz, or as you may know him as Hertz9753, I am building this computer to fold a GPU he used to fold in the OCN Team Competition, and then sold to me. I used it to build my 2nd Son's PC. He then upgraded his GPU, and returned it to me. I will fold it under his name for a few teams he used to fold for which are 37726 and 50711. Mike gave me 3 GTX 460's free of charge and just said fold them as much as you can. We then developed a pretty good friendship. He served as an Editor on OCN for a short while. I bought the 960 and a 2600k. He always was pretty amazed at

  3. it's still a bit ugly and probably fits best here at the moment... lighting setup works fine and i'll post another shot once it gets dark. dimmers have been added to most of the lighting, but i still have to add a dimmer to the one that's currently hidden in the far left. my jury rigged test setup: the bigger picture: also going to throw an ammeter on it to see how much current the whole thing draws when fully powered; and I'm still waiting on fuses for the big knife switch.

  5. I was rebooting for an update, and made a little change just for @Bastiaan_NL There is still one red cable hiding in there, but it's pretty much invisible since it's the auxillary PCIe power at the bottom of the board.

  6. My RX 6700 XT just arrived, will have to run some of my own benchmarks against my RX 5700 to truly see the performance uplift in the games and transcoding I do.

  7. Looks like I just bought a 6900XT directly from the AMD website for MSRP (plus tax and shipping, total was about $1075) after watching one of those youtube inventory tracking videos. I made the purchase so quickly that I couldn't update my shipping address and paypal used an older address by default... so now once it actually gets shipped I'll have to hassle the shipping company to either change the delivery address or make sure they hold it at one of their stores for pick up. Honestly not sure if I'm going to keep it or resell it. Was not looking to get a 6900XT as it's a bit

  8. For this hideous profile pic! Once upon a time, there was this joke in a FAT that maybe I'd get dolled up if people could finally fold enough to beat the long-standing stretch goal we had and never hit until October of 2014. Then, @axipher, another reason to blame Canada, suggested, "How about do it on Twitch so all of us wonderful folding friends can have input on what she does." It was in this FAT that the stretch goal was not only met, but smashed and record setting. So, 1 hour of my wife doing my makeup and me live-streaming it on twitch.tv. I told a few of you, but this is the

  9. 5 million ppd. 2x 1080ti's. First time having anything 80 let alone ti. Better than 2x 1070's. Should be neat for me.

  10. It's alive ! It's alive...after various delays, finally got to bleed the whole loop thing and try out the 3090 Strix OC (and for that matter the 3950X) on w-cooling for the first time...took long enough coz of some injuries, but now ...temps are fantastic ...build log coming soon...

  12. Honestly as much as mining is pissing me off right now, I am not a fan of artificial limitations being put onto cards. The real issue was Nvidia and AIBs directly selling pallets of cards to big mining operations. The issue is not the gamer who wants to mine in their off hours.

  13. Just finished adding my EK block and backplate to my EVGA 3090 FTW Ultra Gaming. Yes...my PC is Borg.

  14. Hello all, So we originally had the Community Folding Project Thread which tracked a build of what was initially going to be the CFP for EHW, however upon sitting back and evaluating the build, it would not be able to perform at its best in its mining like rig configuration due to the fact that the PCIe bandwidth would be limited to 1x, which thanks to some very helpful individuals here were able to point out that there would be a fairly hefty performance hit. With this in mind, it was time to re-hash the CFP and do a rebuild best suited to Folding@Home overall. This

  18. Thanks! I'm sure it will be easier than managing a minecraft server haha. If anyone has any requests as they certain things you would like me to post news about, feel free to let me know.

  25. One of the last pieces of my puzzle that I've been waiting on today showed after 90 days in transit from Germany: Abby Normal's brain. Just need to dress up the cloche and its base now and add fluids.

  27. I've worked in software since 2012. Not all of the companies I've worked for understood or accepted that was their contemporary function regardless of their supposed primary industry, but as a company, you're not serious about technology if you don't invest in it. I've been fighting the SSD fight for 8+ years now. Only two out of the five places I've worked for in the last nine years had any respect or understanding of their employees' needs, especially for their software development operations. That includes getting your employees hardware that won't be a bottleneck to their produ

  29. Off to the races! Had to shut off the R9 Fury X due to tripping the circuit breaker, but we got the 980 ti, 1080, Vega 64, and 2070 going strong.

  30. Will they at least be giving free vaseline with your purchase to help ease that increase? Or will we just have to hold our ankles and grunt as the bill is deposited?

  31. The ac lamp test diode module that i'll be using with my take on rgb showed up today: The lamp colors are green (nominal), yellow (caution), red (warning), and blue (test), which will indicate whether temps have exceeded certain parameters (gpu/cpu temps; i'm pretty sure i can make that switchable). The lamps will be controlled by an arduino fed signals from the testbench/aquero6xt, and coupled to a relay module which will perform the actual switching of the AC voltage, I might also add a uva bulb to the side which would give me five total, or gyrbu (e.g.,

  33. Yessir I did. Just pulled the trigger on a HD3870 too. I want, on hand, a rig from each generation from AMD / ATI. Down to K6, and up to Ryzen. I'm slowly getting there, Thuban and FX are going to be expensive still right now, and the K6 gear is expensive. The rest is actually pretty cheap. I'd go Intel / Nvidia too but then things get too crazy.

  34. My go-to drive is the Silicon Power A80 1TB for $115. It's fast enough and very cheap. I've purchased 8 of them over the last 2 years for various builds. Also the A60 1TB is a good deal when it goes for $85. That one isn't quite as fast so I put those on the PCH.

  35. My Schiit Jotunheim's DAC died and got a replacement! I'm surprised I can hear a difference given both are pretty high-end DAC/Amps - but the DX7 Pro is definitely cleaner/more transparent. Also the solid aluminum case feels really nice.

  36. That should be no problem I've got a z170/7700k combo running without an issue, has been folding with 2 GPU's too. As for the 3090 bandwidth experiment, I've done some basic testing and have not seen more than 14% (4.48GB/s) usage of a 4.0 x16 slot with an average of 9% (2.88GB/s). So a 3090 will hit the max of a 3.0 x4 (4GB/s) slot every now and then, but I've not tested what that means in TPF/PPD. I could not get FAHBench working with a copied beta workunit, will try that again later.

  40. Large dikes (wire cutters, for those who need clarification), an arbor for a 3/4 inch hole saw, some JB Weld Steel Stick, a can of shiny chrome/silver Rustoleum, some small E12 light bulbs, a four socket harness for those bulbs, a 1/4 inch wood chisel, more jute covered twisted wire, yadee, yadee, yada, etc., so I can finish up what follows (my other "RGB" fixture):

  41. Broke 3 Caps on my 1080ti, so I had to buy a new GPU. I guess I was lucky I found a 6900XT at what ASRock lists as MSRP, on the plus side my wife didn't notice the extra cost of a new Silicon Power 1TB NVME drive This is the ASRock Phantom Gaming 16GB, it is freaking huge, barely squeezing into my Cooler Master HAF-XB, Dust filters unfortunately removed for airflow.

  42. You'll still get it's full potential with at least 4x. Even with higher end cards. What matters more is proper power regulation. Ensure the cards are getting enough juice.
