  1. My 2080's been doing 1.7M for the last few workloads. Just moved up the temp/power limit sliders.
  2. New power settled in nicely.

    AIO Water cooler for my graphics card?

    That's not an AIO, that's a full loop. Try something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Kraken-Matte-Cooling-Black-RL-KRG12-B1/dp/B06ZYHRMYP
  4. Mmmm new cables.

      Ooo - more stuff to play with (for you, that is). What's new? What audio goodies did you get this time?

      those are nice i like the blue (probably cause teal is my fav)  ^-^

      Would this be that cable you were saying fell out of the 650s?

  5. No, it just reports strangely in this client. It's doing 1.4M on this WU.
  6. Expanded the folding farm again.

    [Build Log] Noc Noc, Who's There?!

    The original numlock mappings were strange. I redid them.

It consists of a CPU and GPUs I already had. After I posted some early photos on Reddit, someone contacted me wanting to trade my 2x GTX 1080s for an unopened 2080. This was ideal since it's more PPD than both cards while drawing less power. In the dual 1080 form, GPU temps were around 79 and 83 degrees for the hotter card. This is fine since all it does it sit there and run Folding@Home. Things I loved about the build: Dual chamber cases are just a joy to build in. There are SO MANY tie down points in the back and room to run everything. Makes the fact that the board is larger than most mATX boards not really a big deal. This board really makes use of the extra space. Plenty of fan headers in convenient spots. No RGB light show to upstage the components. I like a good RGB build, but sometimes you just want to admire the components. Really enjoyed focusing more on the aesthetics of the components than lights. Challenges: This board is big! It covers almost all of the grommet holes. This made it so that I needed to be very careful when running things. A lot of cables needed to be run underneath the board, so it wasn't screwed in until I was confident about the position of everything. All in all, it was pretty easy, but still a fun challenge to route everything. I had to order a whole bunch of fans to get them all the same color. Didn't realize there was so much variation among the Noctua Redux fans. Some were REALLY dark and almost green. All in all this build was a breeze. Really like the Asus OC card. No LEDs at all and it's got an interesting pattern on the backplate. It's odd that it's so thick, but skinnier width wise than the STRIX cards. Guess it made sense tooling wise. This PC generates almost 2 Million PPD in folding GPU+CPU. I'll let it fold through the winter, then repurposed it. Plenty of power to do anything else I may need later on.
  11. Traded my 2x GTX 1080s for 1x 2080. Same PPD, less heat, less power consumption. 👌




    The backplate matches the @CableMod Pro cables nicely. 

    Everyone should buy @CableMod cables.

    I am totally not the Unofficial Senior VP of Marketing at @CableMod.

      Damn RTX cards be thicc... apparently it's the actual RT part of it that adds all the extra heat?

      It's skinny the other way though. It bothers me.

    Power. It sounds fine, just quiet for my tastes.

    Fulla 2 or Fiio Q1 Mark II

    I'd say the Nano iDSD Black Label would do the job nicely at $200. I have the Fiio and it is rather weak.
