    Want to Buy WTB: Older GPU's for folding

    I've expanded the scope of a couple projects a bit. I am now also VERY interested in any watercooled GPU that can run on in modern PCIe slot banana

    Air compressors

    I bought a used old small compressor on wheels as a 'portable' unit. It has the LARGE motor on the outside with a V-belt driving the compressor. This old style ran at lower RPM and was often MUCH quieter. The new ones use high speed small motors and are VERY noisy by comparison.

    Thermal pad or no?

    Thanks.

    Thermal pad or no?

    I bought a 2TB m2 MP400 drive to upgrade my laptop. I believe the stock drive uses a thermal pad. The instructions for my new MP400 made no mention of thermal pads.... so I'm ok just bolting the drive in?

    OH I looked up the lot with an online map... the dimensions were accurate. The size and shape of the lot was accurate. the orientation was slightly off...

    Rants etc.....

    I think it usually is. HOWEVER I paid cash, unconditional offer, for lot with trailer that was basically a tear down. GREAT price. I moved from my RV to an ANCIENT trailer on a much newer foundation - full basement. Lived a few years before chopping up the trailer and rebuilding a true...

    Want to Buy WTB: Older GPU's for folding

    Perhaps.... Maybe a used shroud - but I think I might lean towards making one from metal. The radiator was used as a replacement for a broken one in my Nissan S12 - used only 6 months before scrapping the car. The rad sat in storage for over 10 years before I used it. Unfortunately the...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Hahaha.... Yeah I had built a few PC's prior so I was comfortable with that aspect but the water kinda terrified me at first. After receiving parts I dragged my heels for a week or two before building UNTIL my mechanic friend pointed out its a non-pressurized system and I was like oohhh...

    Want to Buy WTB: Older GPU's for folding

    I am building my first rig to be a SPACE HEATER which also happens to perform medical research such a F@H. I aim to run them 24/7. I should clarify it will be a heater this fall but by spring I will mount a radiator outside the house and pump the coolant there in the summer - like central A/C -...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    A pair of nVidia K1 server GPU's to use in my seasonal space heater / folding rig. Building a power hungry PC with older GPU's - I figure given how much of the electricity is turned into heat that the efficiency of an aggressive cooling setup could rival or possibly surpass a modest / subpar...

    Folding WHILE mining??

    It seems F@H was merely slow to accurately update TPF and time estimates. I was baffled and basically crapping my pants wondering how it was possible.... Easy come easy go eh?

    Folding WHILE mining??

    Just tried Mining WHILE Folding. Mining output dropped about 16% but F@H seems to be maintaining most of its output also - still measuring. Anyone familiar or experienced with Folding while Mining? I'm rather stunned at the combined output so far banana BACKGROUND. Bought a Laptop off a...

    BEST Monitor Possible?

    THANKS FreeKnight. I will be sure to check out Steven Novella's work (even though I am already 'in too deep'). I love learning and seeing different information/points of view. I believe the ROG swift is a TN panel (though it has very good color for a TN panel from what I read a while ago)...

    BEST Monitor Possible?

    The time has come for me to resume my neurofeedback training. In a nut shell it uses a computer to view and track various frequencies and amplitudes of brain wave activity. The changes come about through repetition (which becomes force of habit). So yes I am retuning my own brain. :ph34r...
