Rosewill PHOTON Series PHOTON-850 850W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS Gold Certified, Full Modular Design, Single +12V Rail,ATX12V ...
Model #:PHOTON-850
Item #:N82E16817182324

I have gone over exclusively to the Rosewill Gold's (at the 450 watt level), after having bought only Seasonic for several years. Both are very efficient, but the Rosewills are a better buy these days. I now have four of them, with the oldest being almost two years old, with no problems.


Thanks Jim...The specs on that PS looked good to me.

Yeah, I know that it is still early for this kind of thing,
But here it goes.
For Christmas I would like,
2 new pairs of Levis, Some new things for my HO Train setup, Enough money to get my Family and friends something nice, A shiny New Crunch Box and to see a massive amount of funds donated to S@H and the Lunatics crew so those folks could have some of the "Toys" that they need to keep most of the Crunchers Happy and maybe catch a little break and enjoy a Brew during the Holiday Season.
Oh Yeah...Some World peace would be nice also.
Are Ya listening Santa? ;o)

Gripes: Folks who gripe about EVERYTHING without Searching for/or Looking for answers in the proper places First.

Kudos: To Both the S@H AND Lunatics Folks who WORK so HARD to keep Us Common crunchers happy With Little or No PAY! (Both places could use some cash Donations for their Hard WORK!!!)

It could be worse, but now a days we get the moose migration.
People think moose are dumb ass kind of animals. I will tell people
not only are moose stronger than a horse, but they are a darn
site smarter than any truck any one ever saw.




But...They taste soooo much better!(Ever tried to eat a Truck?)

Posted 2 Oct 2014 by Profile Jim_SProject donor
Will a GeForce 6200 512MB VGA/DVI/TV-out AGP Video Card crunch S@H on an older system?
The specs say it has 4 cuda cores and is open CL capable.

Nope, The drive didn't even show.
Also I just got My RMAed EVGA card back and they upgraded Me to a GTX 660 which is good I hope.
Also when I put an ATI HD 4770 in that box *The WIN 7 32 bit it trashed every GPU WU* that it tried to do. So I ran lunatics V42 installer again and stopped running All GPU WUs. Odd because both of My HD 4770s worked fine on this box ID: 7258562. Now I'm scared to put the other HD 4770 in My Dell Dual core box...CRAP!

Did all of the tasks on the 4770 end with this?
Error : Building Program (source, clBuildProgram):main kernels: not OK code -11 Error: Requested compile size is bigger than the required workgroup size of 64 elements Error: Creating kernel GPU_fetch_array_kernel_twin_1D_cl failed!


No, I aborted them.
This was the only line that was the same;
Error: Creating kernel GPU_fetch_array_kernel_twin_1D_cl failed!
