    Dual E5-2679v4 Workstation Build

    I'd highly recommend looking into a CUDA build for machine learning. Just slapped together a 4 gtx 1080 build for work and we are training models in ~3 minutes vs 3 days on the 5930k in there...

    quad 1080 unlock?

    And where is that wall? I recall them saying they'd setup a website to put your serial numbers into to get done dirty if unlock code, any news on that front?

    quad 1080 unlock?

    I'm building a new workstation for work (machine learning/ann+render slave) and we're throwing 4 gtx 1080's in it. Before I bring it in I wanted to see how it handles some games - I remember reading that Nvidia was going to have some sort of special unlock for tri/quad-sli setups as it wasn't...

    GPGPU workstation for work (need to buy not build)

    I need a GPGPU workstation for work (raytracing/rendering) and while I'd usually build a machine myself my workplace requires a purchase order/etc... Best deal I've found is through avadirect.com which I like because it seems like it's basically a newegg shopping cart that will be assembled for...

    Quad r290 (x flashed) 2nd card stuck at 2d clocks

    I bought a total of 7 r290s back when they were $399 (+ sold 6 bf4 codes for $30 yippee) and 4 of them flashed to X's. Those are goin in my workstation to mess around w/and hash on. They will be under water but having waterblock leak issues so for now they are on air. After a bit of a misshap...

    OpenCL quadfire r290x cooling

    ya i don't recommend it for mining at all, better to throw another card at it and just space out the cards with risers. When I committed I thought if I was going for quadfire I may as well have them in my workstation so I could enjoy fooling around with them but at the moment just trying to hash...

    think i was in the 35-45 celsius range, and much quieter than the jet engines sitting next to me now... prolly be a week or two of RMA fun before I get everything back up and running

    OpenCL quadfire r290x cooling

    sorry for mr blurrycam: unfortunately sprung a leak (was impatient and in 5 years of watercooling never had one) between the quad-terminal block and one of the waterblocks. Fried the MB but card seems to be alright... it happened to be the card that had a curious defect: what looks...

    OpenCL quadfire r290x cooling

    Building a small OpenCL renderfarm/crypto build... I have a mora3 180mm x4 radiator in my basement from an old GTX480 SLI build, was wondering if it'd handle the wattage of 4 290s flashed to 290x's? IIRC the gtx480s put out like 475w each, and I remember the MO-RA handled that fine along with a...

    stop gap card

    I'd get a cheap -AR EVGA card (I picked up a 570 hd for $300, not so cheap but...) and then if you decide to go kepler you don't have to deal with selling off your card.

    Apple Claims Creation of 514K Jobs for US Workers

    AHHHHH - Apple IS the one making (or at least *succesfully* marketing, either way: SELLING) innovative products to the world. Look on the back of any iDevice: designed in California, made in China. Know how much money each sale makes the US economy? and the Chinese one? Hint: future's not in...
