This is not my system, but the link was sent to me from the IT Admin at my company, and I had to share it.

My first build
VIew of the radiator for the CPU


View of the hydrocooler covering the AMD 8 care


view of PSU, CPU and Radiator


view of the 2 GTX 650ti boost, but now there is 3rd GTX 650 TI also blocking the view


These are 2 -140mm on top of case for exhaust

What is it? Just looking at it I can tell it won't be able to crunch GPU AP WU, they need a lot of CPU help.

Please no vaporware, real machines you have at least touched.

It looks like a tidy setup, but yeah, I'm not sure what its purpose is: the GPUs are only running off PCI Express 4x's also.

It is for coin mining. As the title is "In it for the Ð!" I am guessing Dogecoin. That boards only has 1 PCIe x16 slot the other 5 are x1. I like the look of those PCIe extenders. IIRC running the cards in x1 slots would be a significant slowdown for SETI@home use. However PCIe v3 may be enough bandwidth at x1 now. Maybe someone will do a test in different PCIe configurations as was done a few years ago to show the % slow down for running fewer PCIe lanes.

Don't forget the CPU. SETI AP GPU WU needs a lot of help from the CPU.

Any way only pictures of real computers you control please.

Not related to the thread so it´s just curiosity, what is this thing beyound the number 04 on the date? Looks like a snake?

From his profile:

I have kept snakes since I was 7 years old, and currently have 14 of them...

Oh, and @Steve, whether you own that "rack" machine or not that you linked to, I'm glad you did, as I've never seen cabled off-board PCIe, so should I ever win a lotto and decide to build something way into the four figures, I've got some inspiration now. And it's nice to finally see Piggy*. :^)

But it uses PCI x1 only, you can imagine the performance for cruching.

SETI@home use. However PCIe v3 may be enough bandwidth at x1 now.


Maybe not enough for a top-end card (690, 770+), but might be enough for a mid-level (460) card.


Maybe someone will do a test in different PCIe configurations as was done a few years ago to show the % slow down for running fewer PCIe lanes.


The software tool 'NVidia Inspector' has a Bus Usage monitor which is not enabled by default.

IIRC, one of my factory o/c'd 460's needed about 35% of a pcie v1 x4 slot to crunch 2 version 6 mb's simultaneously. That was on a long gone E8400 C2D system.

Crunching 1 AP + 1 MB today, with the same model of 460 in a pcie v2 x16 slot is using at most 5%, according to the monitor.

1/16 is 6.25% So in theory your 460 would not see much if any slow down from running in a x1 slot if you are using 5% of the x16 slot.

Which makes those x1 USB cabled PCIe extenders viable here. At least for mid range cards. Perhaps I could see about adding those to a few of my rack systems. As they have x4 and x8 slots, but not a lot of room for GPU's inside them.

Here is the new i7/4770K build that was born today replacing my dead i7/930. Haven't started crunching yet, there are still some issues to rectify first.

Intel i7/4700K
ASRock Z87 Extreme 4
1 x EVGA GTX660SC
2 x 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD
1 x 250 WD HDD
