I had a similar problem with a GTX 640. Turns out is was the fan controller, not the fan. I bypassed it using a molex to three pin adapter. Fan runs 100%, but does the job.

We're back, and the infamous "project has no tasks available" is on all 17 of my machines....
8) Message boards : Number crunching : A little odd? (Message 1982348)

I run into this all the time. I've just found it easier to stick a label on the case so I can keep tracks of the 30 odd GPUs I run. Some systems have multiple cards, some don't. Some of the multi GPU systems are "pure" others have a mix of cards. What shows up is usually the "priority" PCIe slot (if you have a mix of connectors), sometimes its the slot closest to the processor. At the end of the day, they all crunch in accordance with their capability

I run 17 right now, all but three built from spare parts, cast-offs and some brilliant retro engineering....most systems are LGA 775 sockets hacked to run Xeons.

About 280 of the 300 or so download errors that came my way have cycled off the system. Thank you sixth iteration wingmen....

Lots of obsessive-compulsive types in the crunching community. I'm one. Just remember , OCs are essential for human survival. Who else would have kept the fires constantly stoked to ward off the saber toothed tiger? Now, I just get another GPU off of eBay....

Keith,

I know you've used NiChrome wires to launch solid fuel rockets. And admit it, every electronics guy has short circuited an outlet with a magnesium wire just to watch the fireball:)

JUST KIDDING READERS. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME........

Thanks for the help the other day with the blanked Boinc file.

v/r,

Mike

Here's a wire gauge use chart for 12 V DC circuits:

According to this, unless you are doing very long runs (in excess of 5 feet), 18 AWG ought to be fine up to 24 amps.

Can't do a re-set, as the project doesn't show in the project window.

Thanks, Keith. Both file are empty of instructions. I can likely cut and paste in the instructions for the account file from one of the sister machines and try that. What do you think?

And while SETI won't load (it does not show as in the "projects" tab of the advanced view), BOINC is now running a back up project (Einstein).
