    Help me build Rosewill Thor with 3x 7970 water cooled

    I want to make my first water cooled rig due to the fact this will be used for cryptocoin mining. I already have a running system with the following so I am locked into using most of it. Rosewill THOR V2-White Edition http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147158 3x ASUS...

    Glad to see a pool here and especially glad to see it from a member with some longevity on the forum and intention to build a robust pool. I just switched over eight 7950s and two 6950s to add ~ 5.25 Mhash/s. I see 2 of my brothers in the top 15 there too...need to setup some more systems :).

    MSI Z77A-G45 only recognizes 4 amd 7950 cards no more

    that's one solution but why spend another $300 if I don't need to right??? Plus space is at a premium. I know others have run more than 4 cards too.

    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    I took the heat sink off the card to see what's going on. I don't think it makes proper contact. Besides that there are silicone looking waffers to transfer heat to the heat sink and those may well be ineffective and improper size. I took the one off the cpu side and put some arctic silver...

    Correct I am getting those temps through the mgmt console. The thing that really beats me is that the heat sink isn't hot and looks like it is connected just fine.

    With my drives spun down and the card doing nothing I'm seeing: CPU Temperature 94 ºC Controller Temp. 47 ºC CPU Fan 3350 RPM Something looks to be terribly wrong here. I use msi afterburner to monitor gpu temps which are low 60s which is great. Core temp shows CPU is also at low 60s...

    What kind of temps are you guys seeing on the 1882? I have the 1882ix-16 model. My cpu temps are really high. Like 90 degrees even with its integrated fan and large heat sink. This is worse than the 1880ix-16 I used to use that had no fan and had the small heat sinks. Strangely the heat...

    Gigabyte G1.sniper doesn't support WOL? How to with add on?

    Apparently the Gigabyte G1.Sniper does not support WOL with its bigfoot killer nic. I never thought to check as this feature has been supported on every mobo I've used for many years. I figure I'll just plunk in another card for WOL only. So I picked up an intel pro/1000 GT that supports wol...

    Windows 7 cable television “PlayReady” DRM scam

    Did you ever figure out a solution to fix this? I am having the exact same problem as I had to swap out a motherboard due to a failure. The thought of having to reimage everything is depressing and that is not a good solution when other hardware could die as well.

    It doesn't happen to be possible to get wake on lan support through the areca 1880ix-16 network port is it? I have had a helluva time going through motherboards to try to get all the features I want. Currently on the gigabyte g1.sniper. I like the marvell 9182 controller as it works nicely...

    slow sata 3 corsair force 3 ssd with asrock extreme6 x58 (marvell 9128)

    Strangely getting a much better result today. I'm probably better off on the marvell based on that data unless you think I should compare some other utilities. At least it appears I am getting a decent upgrade from the F120. What do you think? I really don't want to buy a replacement for...

    slow sata 3 corsair force 3 ssd with asrock extreme6 x58 (marvell 9128)

    So there is no onboard sata 6gb/s option for me then right? Is the ICH10R going to be better than the marvell 9128? That is only 3Gb/s sata II. So I will never see anywhere near max performance from this drive then right? Isn't it only capable of like 300MB/s on the ICH10R? edit: I guess I...

    slow sata 3 corsair force 3 ssd with asrock extreme6 x58 (marvell 9128)

    I'd replace the board if I knew a good one to get with an onboard controller that would let me see more performance from the drive that would hopefully be near its potential. Recommendations?

    slow sata 3 corsair force 3 ssd with asrock extreme6 x58 (marvell 9128)

    So you are saying the older sata II 3Gb/s on the intel ICH10R will be faster? Then the corsair force 3 drive is indeed worthless for performance above my F120? Is there an x58 board with a good sata 3 controller which will let the drive operate to its maximum potential?

    slow sata 3 corsair force 3 ssd with asrock extreme6 x58 (marvell 9128)

    Well the new driver is no better. Shouldn't the sata 6 be faster than the intel on sata II 3Gb/s? Won't the force 3 ssd well over saturate the bandwidth on the intel ICH10R? In any case I expected way better results from the marvell. It should be near 400MB/s and be without the hiccups...

    Looks like as long as I start guiminer and then rdp into it that it still runs just fine. But if I stop guiminer and attempt to start again it will just use cpu. So I'd just have to remember to start it every morning before leave for work :)

    Good news so far as that the freezing issue is resolved. I removed flash and ccc and reinstalled latest versions and then disabled the flash gpu acceleration. With "-v -w128 -f60" I'm getting about 345-350Mhash/s and can play a youtube video without it freezing. Default clock speeds for now...

    What flag settings would you recommend for me using guiminer with my single 6950 (flashed to 6970)? I'm confused about what miner to use in guiminer. I think the -v -w128 -f30 apply to the default one right?

    I was surprised by lack of fan on my 1880ix-16 as well. Especially since the 1880i does have one. So I just put a slot fan I had sitting around right next to it. Cool thing is it lines up exactly with the heat sink on the card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200018...

    You can configure the spin down time through the Areca mcraid archttp utility that you can install or you can access mcraid directly through the nic on the card. The fact that the card handles it makes it work well. If you try windows power mgmt you will probably not see them spin down or at...
