haha..I'd need a static free bag and packing. Better option is moving the entire computer back which I do next time my brother comes to visit. He can put it in the back seat and buckle it in.

The threat of static damage to modern electronics is overrated. Unless you like rubbing your socked feet across the carpet and then touching a card, its pretty easy to dissipate static charge. Depends on the age of the electronics. Older components really do need careful handling because they have no built-in protections.

I have a old CMOS based telescope controller that I would blow the programming out of every time if I did not ground myself to the mount before I picked up the hand controller. Especially bad at 9000 feet altitude in dry air. I started wearing heel grounders on my shoes to prevent inflicting a controller reboot.

Probably could have just wrapped the card in your clothes in your luggage and called it good.

Like mains surge protectors, those inbuilt protections have very limited lives, and a very limited ability to protect against static.
A static discharge mat & wrist strap when handling & installing the card aren't necessary, but having a anti-static bag for moving it really is (if you want it to last).

I am running all SETI GPU tasks on a Linux box ( an old SUN WS) with a GTX 750 Ti and they all validate. On my Windows 10 PC, a HP desktop, I have a GTX 1050 Ti and it reboots frequently. but GPU tasks validate, exactly as on the SUN WS.

Can someone explain what the hybrid is in those GTX Hybrid versions? Is it hybrid because it has both air- and water cooling, or does it work on both electricity and gas?

Yes it is because there is a connection on the card that allows the user to connect to their home natural gas which greatly reduces the power consumption.

Seriously, It is because the cards are water cooled. The 120mm rad and the AOI cooler keeps the card temps down under 50C.
Do not try to connect to gas :D

Yes they use both air and liquid cooling. Liquid cooling for the graphics processor and the standard squirrel-cage fan from the Founders Edition cards to cool the VRM's and memory.

I prefer hybrids. Easier to be aggressive in my tuning and not have the temps cause throttling of the cards.

My GPU temperatures are 43 C on the GTX 750 Ti running SETI@home and 69 C on the GTX 1050 Ti running Einstein@home. They are not OC and are both air cooled.

I'd be getting very worried if any of my GPU's were getting near that warm and that maybe why you're getting restarts with that computer.

Cheers.

I would love temps like that personally.

I'd look at airflow on that 1050Ti, is the air intake being blocked?? Is it a single fan or dual fan configuration? How do you have the fan curve set? Silent or aggressive?

Don't know brand you have but I think EVGA has 90C as the throttle point for their cards. Still 69C is higher than I like.

My host have 4 GTX 1070 Hybrids they run at 43-53 C range at close to 100% GPU usage. I have no AC and outside temp is at 32C and Up most of the day.

I am getting restarts only with SETI@home GPU tasks, not with Einstein@home GPU tasks. I watch the Maintenance/Reliability window and it always fails whenever I run SETI@home. So I am splitting work, SETI@home on the Linux box, LHC@home on the HP Linux laptop with no graphic board, and Einstein@home on the Windows 10 PC with GTX 1050. So everybody is happy.

I was just thinking about the latest mining craze, and was wondering how long this one will take to peter out? I know that the first one took a few months, was there ever a concensous as to what killed it off the first time, and are the stars aligned in the same manner to do it again? Or have things changed in terms of currency's mined, the current value of whatever currency, or something else? One of those kinda would like to know, but not sure if there is any good answers out there sort of questions.

It will be the same thing this time as last- fear will outweigh greed. Governments banning mining or taxing (in official currency) the mines and/or miners will hasten the onset of fear overriding greed.

Stock exchanges/share markets have little if any connection with economic reality (just look at the last few years & weeks in particular). Economic fundamentals & rational thought play little to no part in them- it's all about speculation & greed. It's just a form of gambling; gambling if the markets will go up, and there are methods for gambling that the markets will go down. Why let reality get in the way of the chance of making a killing? Crypto currencies are no different.

The first mining bubble was killed off by increasing difficulty paying out less and higher electric rates making the profit margin negative. Also, BTC exchange hacks, thefts and prison terms on the early pioneers made an impact. The latest bubble was in 2014 with BTC at $800 and in 2015 BTC had fallen to $200. That is when the huge influx of used cards hit Ebay. This chart and timeline is illustrative.

They're trying hard to get thru their supply 1080s it appears, though there were a couple with the Ti's too. No 1070's at all though sadly. :-/

I am trying like crazy to find the 1070Ti Hybrid. But I suspect the real reason for the shortage of 1070Ti's is there isn't enough reject 1080 chips to warrant a production run of 1070Ti's. Also I see that the 1070Ti Hybrid MSRP at EVGA is now $100 more than the 1080 Hybrid MSRP. I don't care which becomes available first, it just has to be a Hybrid card.
