It's taken a nose dive again. Shortly after you responded to me the number of WU created went up to over 10/sec but now back to less than .8/sec. Strange.

Thanks.

Switched it to 80%, one of the CPU tasks suspended but the NVIDIAa are still scheduler wait.

If I yank out the ATI 7570 card, the NVIDIA 640 then starts crunching.

The ATI has a 1GB and the 640 has 2GB.

What is this telling me?

Waiting to run (0.04 CPUs + 1 NVIDIA GPU) (Scheduler wait) ??

I have both and ATI and an NVIDIA card in this box and it's grabbed a couple CUDA AP WUs but has been sitting at (Scheduler Wait) for a while now. Ever so often it will say running but only for a half second.

Thanks

Keith, you're exactly right. Everyone will normalize to the same rankings they had prior to the migration.

Not sure how many times I have seen people complain about credits over the years.

And Mark, $620? Holy crap dood! Mine never went over $300 before I had to cut back for a while. It's amazing how much getting a divorce eats into your budget. :)
17) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Windows 7 and 2 GTX 295 (Message 940658)
Posted 1646 days ago by Profile Tw34k3d
Heya Five,

After a recent upgrade from 190 to 191 on the drivers, I lost the fourth GPU. I spent about and hour swapping all of the video cables around till I got it to show 4 again.

I eventually had to reboot each time I changed monitor configurations. I was just swaping cables, and sometimes I would see the change and other times I wouldn't. So I finally just gave up and rebooted each time. So, using both HDMIs and the TOP DVI on the first card and the SECOND DVI on the second card, it now shows 4 GPUs in SETI.

Not sure if this helps you at all.

A while back, Mahoney said he knew of someone at Nvidia that was working on a driver that did not require monitor detection to allow the use of all GPUs. Not sure where that went cause several drivers versions ahve come and gone since then and obviously nothing has changed in that respect.

Posted 1790 days ago by Profile Tw34k3d
Why did you cut a hole on the bottom of the cpu case if you have it covered up? It looks like you have the computer sitting flat and on carpet..?


There is a gap between the bottom of the case and the plastic stand it sits on. It's about a half an inch wide. So it's actually off the ground. If you look at the bottom of the case, there is an orange line. From the orange line down is a plastic stand.

I would think if you cut a hole on the case like that you would want some room for air?


There is.

Are those 2 Geforce 295's? I don't see how you are getting air to the top one if the fan is on the bottom of the card?


There is plenty of space. The fans in the cards have air holes on both sides.

What temp are those cards running at in C?


71, 72, 71, and 78.

Posted 1791 days ago by Profile Tw34k3d
Here's the images of my exhaust project.

This first image is the inside of the FX-6800. Notice the GPUs are at the bottom. The exhaust of these cards not only comes out the back, but also out of the top of the cards, back into the case. I tied everything up inside and gave it plenty of room to breathe.

What you can't see, at the bottom of the case I cut out a 4 inch square section just below where the bottom GPU's fan intake would be. I put an old power supply fan grate over the hole to keep large things from getting inside. I also had to cut a hole of similar size in the plastic base the case sits on. It doesn't go all the way to the floor but air does get in from the side and that's good enough.

That red thing between the GPU's is a molly. The kind you use to anchor screws into drywall. I am using it to separate the GPU's just a tad. Gravity tends to want them on top of each other.

Shameless plug for Dr. Pepper is unintentional. :)



This next image is of the back of the case, showing the cover I made to go over the back. I made this using a sheet of tin, some aluminum duct tape and a 4 inch metal hose attachment. I cut the metal to be 4 inches taller than the case and 8 inches wider than the back of the case. So when I cut it out, I could fold it such that there is 4 inches on the top and sides to cover the back of the case. I cut the tin by scoring it with a sharp object and wiggling it till it snapped. Using tin shears would have left it to jagged and ugly.

I used the aluminum tape to hold the corners together and also seal the 4 inch drier adaptor to the metal cover on the inside. The aluminum tape will not shrink or get all sticky and fall off when it is exposed to the heat from the computer like other types of tape will.

Since the back of my case faces away from the window, and the case is pretty close to the wall, I opted to get a plastic 90 degree 4 inch elbow to keep the aluminum hose from getting kinked.

Along the inside of the cover I made, where it actually makes contact with the sides of the computer case, I used some weather stripping to make a better seal and to keep from scratching the case.

Notice that the wires come out of the bottom of the cover. I opted to not put any holes in the back of the cover I made for any of the cables. It doesn't make much sense to do that since you would have to route the wires before putting the cover on and if you didn't get a good enough seal around the hole the cabes come in, you're just sucking outside air in instead of the hot air from the case. A small length of weather stripping both on the bottom of the case and the bottom of the cover will make a nice seal around the cables if you line them up horizontaly with out overlap.



This next image shows The front of the case and the hose running along the wall behind my desk. I had to use a 12 foot hose. The 8 footer I originally bought just didn't stretch far enough and I ended up busting it. Live and learn.

Notice the small white dot on the front of the computer about half way up. Thats an older "mod" I made to the case. I cannot stand to not have a hard disk activity indicator, and this machine came without one. It bothered me enough to fix it. In addition, there was also a jumper available on the motherboard for network activity. Theres one of those on the front now too.



This next image is of the window placement of the actual exhaust. I opted to use styrofoam as a mount. It's easy to cut and shape and is a nice bright white on one side just like the window itself. I was unable to find a small sheet of this insulating styrofoam so I had to buy a whole sheet. It's a full 2 inches thick and was 8 feet long. I had it cut into 4 peices just to get it home. This was the most costly part of the project.

I cut one section of the foam 12 inches high and 32 inches long. I then cut a dove tail by notching the short side about half an inch on eiher side. This allows for the styrofoam to actually sit inside the groove of the window so that wind won't knock it about and rain won't get in. The sliding part of the window actually sits right on the top and is nice and snug. This foam is also laminated on both sides so it won't crumble. Yea!

In the middle of the foam I cut a round hole just less than 6 inches in diameter. Inside this I squeezed the 6 inch drier exhaust. Having cut the hole a little short, it's nice and snug. I had to cut about 6 inches off the tube due to it just being too long. At the end of that I have a 6 inch to 4 inch reducer so the 4 inch hose will fit on.



This last image is looking inside the exhaust itself. I took a high-speed 4 inch 12 volt fan and cut the corners off so it would slide inside the 6 inch drier vent. Airflow toward the ourside. I then cut some small cresents of foam to fit along the outside of the fan to help create a better vacuum. I drilled a small hole (after putting the fan in place) and routed the wires outside and put some thick heat-shrink where the wires contact the metal. It vibrates just a little and I don't need it to chafe and short.

Notice that the louvers on the outside of the drier vent are missing. Since I did not want to take my screen out of the window, and I still wanted air to flow, I had to remove them.

I have the fan running on a 12 volt power supply. I am using aligator clips due to being posessed by the demon of sloth lately and not wanting to actually go hunting for wires to use. :)



One benefit to this design is that in the winter months (and it's dry outside) I can reverse the air flow and place the cover I made on the front of the case and blow in cold air.

I think I spent a total of about $85 for this whole project. But now my computer room is between 69 and 75 degrees all day instead of 85 to 90.

I got all my supplies at Lowes with the exceptiuon of the fan. The same materials can be found at just about any hardware store that stocks vent and duct supplies. The foam was back in the wood section.

If you need any help, let me know and I will walk you through it best I can.
