I'm alive again. Again!

Good to see some new folders and other users active since I was last here. I'm still shooting for the top spot even if for a day.

I fixed my AC and can now run my 970s 24/7 with no issues. Also have a modest 100MHz OC with no issues on them. Soon I will have the bits I need to get my 980s up and running on a WC loop. Just had to put money to fixing some car problems first. But all is well and my PPD should be back around 500K soon. And once I get a pump and some fittings. 3 GTX980s will be in my main rig. Then I'll build a second rig for the 2 970s. Just need a MoBo.

Side note: Has anybody else had recent problems with slots crashing while advanced control is open for long periods of time? I kept coming home from work to find a slot hung and had to quit the FAHclient.exe to get it back to normal every day. But I haven't had the problem for the last couple of days since I started close advanced control while I'm gone.

That usually happens to me after I upgrade the nvidia driver. I'll revert back and the problem usually stops.

If not, I'll uninstall FAH including data, then reinstall.

It only occurs with my 970s, never with any of my other gpus.

Odd for the 970s to be the culprit. I don't think the 980s did it while I had them in my rig either.

Welcome back! I have been avoiding changing drivers, and other than the Windows 10 latest update, I haven't had any issues recently.

On vacation so I had to power down both 980 rigs, then lost 12 hours due to Windows 10 forced update in the middle of the night ��. Horrible points today but hit 2.1M two days ago!

Latest Windows 10 update killed my video folding. I'm going to try a driver update to fix it.

Updating the driver seems to have it folding again. We'll see if it does ok or not later.

Back home and ready to hit 2M PPD every day!

Took the plunge and upgraded the two problematic rigs to Win10 Pro to avoid losing a day's worth of folding time because of forced Windows updates restarting the machine and waiting for me.

Also got back the 980 Classified from my son. He was trying to run it in SLI with a 980 SC and couldn't run them without overheating.

Yeah, You pretty much have to keep the room at 65-70F with great air flow to keep multiple 980s cool. I was running 2 980 STIRX cards and a 970 in one rig. Babies got too hot for my liking.

I've got a pair of high wattage 780ti running overvolted and overclocked in a case in a 80-90F room for two years now with no problem. Amazing what a box fan can do for an extra 35 watts at the wall.

I've had to do my share of box fan cooling. I even did it for a bit with the 980s but it didn't do much 90C to 85C. This Mobo does not have the best... spacing. 980s hitting 90C is a bit much for me. Sadly, my PC is in my bedroom I can't deal with my room being 90F either. I'm just waiting for the last bits for my WC loop. I just hope the 360 RAD is enough for the 3 980s.

The 780ti run at 73 and 67C in those conditions. YOU MUST replace thermal paste regularly on a graphics card that runs under 24/7 load. Every 6-8 months or your temps will climb to high levels over time is what I find works. Best practice is to replace thermal paste on a card when it's new and get a real baseline to stick with as time goes by. Paste application from factory is hit and miss. Personally I find it best to apply "too much" paste for applications requiring extended heat loads. CPU seem to want paste yearly.

I actually don't know how long the noctua paste I have will last. (CPU anyway) I'm gonna reTIM the 970s once my fittings and tubes come in for the 980s. THe 980s have already been reTIMed for the blocks. I ran my 660TI with the noctua TIM for a year and a half with no problems, even folding 24/7. Gotta get my second rig set up for the 970s too.

Still time in this night to set up my 970s in a second rig. Bought a CrosshairV Formula for my brother's birthday present and redid his PC a week ago. Now I have my old Asrock 780G back and my 955.

We needs more PPD for our precious.

Thanks man. Sadly the 970s are to close to each other on the 780G and heat up too much. I'm just going to get a riser cable and move one of them over so they can breath.
