Ok the BFG GTX295 card and the Koolance Vid-NX295 water block have been paid for, the block is at least on It's way according to the USPS tracking info, both are of the dual pcb type of course. So now I need to get a water block for the EVGA GTX460 (1373 type) and of course there's one on ebay now by Koolance, drat. As I'm out of money for this month again, plus two more GTX295 cards, One of each of the two types of GTX295 cards of course, then the block and card acquisition will be, I hope, over with.

I also changed out the 3 Delta 3400rpm 113cfm fans that were in the case of the pc that I'm using now and replaced them with 3 quieter Koolance 2500rpm 108cfm fans, being the koolance are running at full speed they cool a bit better than the throttled Delta fans which were being held by the Bios to about 2488rpm, both fan types are 120x120x25mm in size, I'm not buying any Deltas ever again, too loud for Me at full power.

I also cleaned off the old P5K Deluxe motherboard, QX6700 cpu(Unlocked) and 4GB Patriot DDR2 ram a bit as I'm interested in selling It off, As seen below, I think I have an original manual and yep the bios setting need to be reset, beyond being old, it does work. I'm hoping to get $100 out of it before shipping.

No It's not on ebay, yet.

Make that $330.00 as I'm thinking of selling the 4gb DDR2 1066MHz ram, P5K backplate, QX6700 2.66GHz cpu and yes the P5K Deluxe motherboard(LGA775 w/1205 Bios), I looked on ebay and the motherboard alone sold for about $150 and the cpu for about $129, the ram for about $51...

All it needs is a good home, the H50 is not included and is barely able to handle this cpu as It was not designed for It, although I'm confident a Corsair H100 would do the job.

Rubber Gloves, Yellow ones in fact, Yeah those type(think: Marge Simpson), Dang My hands smell of rubber, but I caulked around the outside edge of the swamp cooler and before I did that I could feel cool air coming out, not anymore though, some I had to apply with My fingers though cause of the confined quarters underneath. Oh and with some warm water(done on the left side of the sink), the gloves cleaned up nice and easy as Ya please.

Next month I get to buy a replacement grill and a winterizing grill for the swamp cooler, plus some spray on Primer made by Krylon, but It's in My best interest to do so, and of course the county as per county tax law has sent Me a final property tax bill for $200 which I can get in January 2012 and that will be that.

Oh and My 2nd and last Koolance GTX295 dual pcb water block arrived today, and outside of fingerprints is in excellent shape.

The dual pcb BFG GTX295 w/an EVGA made backplate that I won is on Its way to Me by Priority Mail from Redding CA, It was shipped on Wednesday.



I'll soon get to insert this card into the PC here, Hopefully what the Enermax rep once told Me about their 1050w psu is true, as I'll have 3 GTX295 cards in the case.

Yep I haven't been feeling too good lately, feeling a bit weak today, no fever, just coughing and spitting up stuff out of My throat, I'm taking some generic green NyQuil pills so that I can sleep, I may need to power up the heater tonight.

Tried to turn the heat on, no luck, the gas pilot is on and is lit, tried the blower on the fan setting instead of auto, that works, looks like I get to call the park manager in the morning, something's not busted, thermostat or something...

I have my little oil filled radiator turned on in my bedroom, just enough with 3 cards and 2 computers also crunching to keep me warm until the North wind starts blowing again.

False alarm, I just heard the heater go click and the blower is on, the temp wasn't right yet, now It went off. :o

Yeah I naturally have a newer pc that isn't much of a heater, even at 3.61GHz(an i5 750).

Here's how I have the cooler blocked off for the moment, at least until the proper cover and a new grill can be ordered in November, the step ladder I inherited from My Grandmother is all that's holding the cover in place, I doubt it's totally gas tight, but it's what I have and I don't feel any breeze...


Of course My wireless connection died, again, It was disabled and not by Me.

I found an inexpensive way to keep the keyboard kitty safe, I just disable the keyboard with the program at the link below. I don't really see Grace typing unlock anytime soon.

Ok I think this will do as proof of concept, My BFG GTX295 arrived today, 6(Cuda Fermi) WU's being done on 1 PC in Windows 7 Pro x64, although I reserve the right to produce later pics. So now I'm running 3 GTX295 cards under driver 275.33, Boinc 6.12.34 x64 and BoincTasks 1.21. Oh and the Enermax 1050w psu is powering It all, I also have 6GB of ram and the cpu i5 750 cpu is at 3.0GHz.

Someone may want to eat their words...

I had to lower My overclock from 3.61GHz to 3.00GHz as the cpu was taking up too much power, that 1050w Enermax psu is doing pretty good, Now I know 6-GTX295 cards will work. It'll need 2 psus though, plus they all just have to fit on the EVGA P55 Classified 200 motherboard together. Oh and BoincTasks 1.21 is probably v7 compatible already, As the author mentioned something about v7 compatibility. That's good to know Steve, Glad I have x38g loaded then. So there are now 2 v2 GTX295's and a v1 GTX295 in one case and the v1 is between the two v2 cards and at 100%(fan) It is louder than the v2 fans.

It's a bit messy, but the new card is in the middle and It look clean, hence why the label is messed up, a screw was under part of It.

Well the pic below is of only 3-GTX295 cards, as It's proof of concept only, the 6 are going to be water cooled as that's the only way to possibly fit all 6 cards in one case, I've converted 3 cards already and I'm working on the motherboard, I need to install a cpu water block, buy a case, more fans, 2 more cards(1 of each type of 295, there were only 2 types), 1 water block, 2 psus and 2 radiators is going to take some time.

I got up this morning and I found I left My D cell flashlight on, needless to say, next month I'll be buying a fresh pair and since I'm going to buy a pair I'm going to invest in a pair of Precharged Rechargeable NiMH batteries, some low discharge type of course, I can't buy a charger just yet, but considering the "bulb" is an LED type, that isn't a big problem.

Also the 3-GTX295 cards crunching on S@H in 1 PC(2-BFG(v2+v1) and 1-EVGA(v2)) and all 6 gpus that are crunching for Seti@Home are doing just fine...

There is no such thing as a low discharge Nicad or NiMH. The all lose about 1% of charge a day. I have been playing with them for over 40 years and keep Alkaline in all my flashlights and radios. Most rechargable batteries are discharged by the time you get them so you better buy a charger when you buy the batteries. I do use NiMH in my keyboard , mouse and camera but they eat a large number of regular batteries.

look like you could crunch for the whole of Seti?
