I have the following for sale, prices without shipping
(3) XFX R9 270 - $100 - Purchased in mid-January, litecoin mining through mid March. Focused on stability/power consumption, so these were mildly overclocked (focus on mildly), and undervolted.
(6) PCI-E 1x powered risers (the kind with...
I thought it was terrible when I installed it, so I went back to Windows 7. When I tried it again with an open mind, I realized it wasn't bad at all--in fact, I find it so good that I installed it on all my computers.
So I'm on the fence. Already have my bigadv folding rig set up with extra PCI-E slots. Free electricity, incredibly fast internet, and I found a decent deal on two new 5830s. Not looking to make a lot off of them, but getting a decent discount on upgrading the weakest part of my system would be...
ever take a fan and put it flat against the ground? You notice it especially with 38mm Deltas--they spin incredibly fast because they don't have as much resistance, because there is no air (or, at least, a very insignificant amount of air) going through them.
Taking that case to dual fans of...
-OCZ Gold 6GB DDR3 1600 8-8-8-24 1.65V memory -- Brand New. $70 shipped.
-i7 920 -- week 38, one of the best batches of i7s made. (ie, 4.0Ghz @ ~1.2V, 4.3Ghz @ ~1.325V). Overclocking is not totally guaranteed (due to variances in cooling, motherboards, etc), but I will get a screenshot...
I just went through my case and unplugged everything I don't need--extra fans, hard drives, etc. and brought it down to 330ish. Most likely when it's all said and done, I'll be in the 115-120 range....though if I see a nice hex core deal, I might have to jump on it!
As a long time Folding@home advocate, I just recently started paying attention to electricity consumption. My kill-a-watt just came in the mail today, and I have the following readings:
Only GPU folding: 6000PPD/310W = 19.3
Both CPU and GPU: 42000PPD/456W = 92.1
Word. I got signature confirmation from OCZ and Fedex 1. thought my house was an apartment and knocked on the wrong door, 2. Knocked when nobody was home.
Funny thing about it was that the person in customer support told me the Fedex hub was open on Saturday--so I drove the ~10 minutes to...

I just got a 2692...but I'd still rather have a 6900. They're better than the 2684s, though...by a long shot! Bloomfield @ 4.3Ghz:
2684: 39:42 (24.6k)
2692: 29:43 (37.6k)
6900: 28:06 (41.3k)
This is all without a GPU--I always want to run the GPU for a touch extra PPD, but then it hurts...
zero money available?
Keep checking the F/S section. You can pick up decent X58 motherboards for under $100 (I got mine for $85). Add in some decent memory, and you can be set for under $150 easy. You can always put the rest into better cooling.
First of all, 20 passes of Linx is usually only adequate if you have a good amount of ram (ie, 4-6GB). Try OCCT and run the linpack test for an hour and see if you're stable. Also, you should be getting faster results--I'd guess that it's due to your small amount of ram...at 4.2 I'm usually...
I have bills to pay and haven't been using this as often as my desktop, so this has to go.
