Maybe it is linked to my professional history and current setup but I prefer FAH over any of those math projects ... wish more bio/health would show up in boinc. Not so crappy as Rosetta and more WU as GPUGrid.
While I don’t fold with cpu on FAH is because their beta version often not running on my centos stock versions and slow/no response on recompiling those.

Else: they can peacefully coexists . And for me they will.

Finally got my parts for the 2950x system, so i had time to take apart and figure out why my X99 was behaving weird... Found out that only 3 of 8 RAM slots work, and it is not down to overtightening. I guess i can call this state as "died". It's either the CPU or the motherboard - in any case RIP.

Put me down for a mobo too. When my PSU died last week it took the GA-150+ with it. Put in a spare OCZ PSU and she's deader than a doornail, its my Server too. Fck Thermaltake TR2-500 just under 2 yr old and under warranty and was plugged into a Cyberpower UPS so it wasnt a surge that took it. Thats the 2nd TR2 in last 2-3 yrs. Wont be recommending them to anyone anytime soon...

The database server driving hard-dc.com gave up one SSD out of its softy RAID1 , first responder tried but patient still in coma trying to get the newly implanted SSD running.
I hope the backups will work :-|

But I guess I use that opportunity to move full to a newer version of Postgres and switch the scheme to one using a partitioned tables. Based on time. That will improve the query performance.

But this means a downtime until weekend.

Add a MSI 1070Ti to the casualty list, died last week while folding. Bought as a refurb in feb last year so not the longest lived of cards. Not sure what i'm going to replace it with but probably a 2070

This is why i prefer hunting down good used deals. The 1070ti's i bought this year still had 1.5 years warranty left from EVGA when i picked them up
Just need to by the cards from manufactures that allow warranty transfer.

True but I bought this in feb 2018, which being as it was the height of the mining fad meant that buying anything was nearly impossible. it was a gamble and I lost on thins occasion, my other refurb was a 1080 bought in oct 2017 and its still going strong.

Lesson learnt and i will only be buying new from now on

^ Mining not a fad, just moved on to purpose built bare metal ASIC hardware. That said, I was thinking about adding a 2nd 1080ti to my primary setup, thinking that at two years old the prices would have come down, nope, $1200, just what I paid for this one...

Dual core Dell Inspiron died today. Pulling usable parts and replacing with a Dell Latitude E6410 Quad core. So, good news is that I went up 2 more cores in the grand scheme of things.
