Here's what the Corsair Bulldog case looks like:

Inside filled with the cooler and such..

Inside very empty..

And one with the cooler, exploded view..

So who would have guessed that is how 'Linux' looks?!


From the chart, looks like you have a pretty fast ramp-up.


Happy fast cool crunchin,

There's really not anything you can add onto that motherboard, is there? Or is there a videocard slotted on the right (backview)?

Here is My first quad GPU host, my daily driver.



Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl
PSU: Corsair RM650
MB: Asus A88X-PLUS
CPU: AMD A10-7850K
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Memory: Kingston HyperX FURY Black 8 GB
SSD: Kingston HyperX FURY 120 GB
HDD: Verbatim 2 TB SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB
Optical drive: Samsung SH-224DB 8X DVD+/-RW SATA
GPU: 3 * Asus GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 (two in PCI-E, one in PCI-E extension card), 1 * AMD Radeon R7 Spectre (integrated in CPU)

As You can see, it draws about 230-240W (230V) when running 4 AP GPU units and two MB CPU units.

Curren RAC is not what it should be, 24h off-line last weekend when I was away, and 3rd 750Ti just installed. Could be around 40K, wait and see.

(and Yes, there is dust inside case, cleaned it after photo :)

Cool riser setup! I love the fractal cases.

You ought to see how much room there is, in a Corsair Graphite 780T! I've just bought one for my new build....it is massive inside and out. I could've gone for a Skylake build, but have stuck to the promise I made to myself, nearly 20 years ago, to never be at the 'bleeding edge' again. The money saved, meant I could buy better quality/better performing components.

Full details are; Corsair 780T (white), Corsair AX860i PSU, Gigabyte Z97 G1 Sniper, i5 4690K, Gigabyte R9 390X (8GB) 32G Crucial Ballistix 1866 MHz RAM (timed 9-9-9-27), 2 X WD Black 2TB drives, Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD (solely for OS etc.), LG 16X Blu-ray drive, topped-off with an Asus Xonar D2X sound card. Just waiting for my Win 7 Pro DVD.....

Should be a very nice rig....
I long ago ran out of money to be bleeding edge. Did it for a long time, and waiting a while gets you all the same bits for a ton less cash.
Some pics when you get it together, please.

Well, It didn't go as plan did.

Several mysterious freezes.
Not available to solve it (I'm in love :)

Back to home, UPS complaining, turn of UPS, switch to main current. Fuse goes bang. New Fuse, again bang.

Corsair RM650 is gone. Three fuses goes off before I realize it.

Was three 750Ti's too much for RM650?

Wait and see, CX750M is now running.

Try this calculator to find out how much PSU you need

There's an EVGA one that I like also but their website is down until next week.

Yep, I know that calculator, and I did use it before installing third Ti. And it always calculated under 500W PSU.

My 980's are using 147W max according to nvidia-smi. The 780's do not show their wattage.

Greetings All

Thought I would post up my part time SETI crunchers.




Ducati900ss - ASUS P5Q PRO with QUAD 9400 1 X GTX 970


Ducati851 - ASUS P5Q PRO with QUAD 8400 1 X HD 7850 & 1 X GTX 660ti


Tazzduke - nVIDIA N680i with QUAD 6600 1 X HD 7850 & 1 X GTX 660ti

All three machines have just been relocated into newer boxes, so they are a lot more tidier than they were in there old boxes.
Weather is way to warm here in OZ (West OZ) at the moment, so all are on holiday till the weather improves and they only GPU crunch on SETI anyways.

Happy New Year to you all and Happy Crunching.

Built a new rig using a 5930K, four 970 hybrids, in a Caselabs Mercury S8. Currently it is crunching at Einstein@Home, but will make a visit here soon.

Hey guys!
I want to share some pictures with you: I built a "Smartphone-Crunching-Box".
Every old Smartphone will be placed in it. At the moment a Galaxy S4 and a Xperia Z3 are crunching.

That one I liked.

Guess it could be called a computer.

But if for some reason a box has no room for four such cards, perhaps another solution where a dedicated box having room for only these cards with a high speed cable going to the main box itself could be an option.

Makes it two boxes, but perhaps one possible solution perhaps, if you look at it that way.

Edit: Looking a little further down, the computer belonging to tazzduke also is looking very nice inside that box.

But if you compare with my own motherboard, there is a blue flat unit located there which is not being used.

Is that perhaps a SSD? If so, how may I be able to access or use that unit or module?

Saw this on Lifehacker yesterday...
The College Corner Workspace

It might look huge at first, what with the sheer amount of gear in the shot, but Adam is a college student, and this is his room. Some smart use of vertical space and you have a nook that’s perfect for work and play.
