    one of the 780's turned up the other day and just put it on the folding rig for testing .
    it was getting about 125k ppd on its first wu .

    this weekend i should have the folding rig sorted with the 680's installed, so they should see more WU than they are currently getting

    yeah i think you should see a price drop fairly soon , just keep an eye out for the 1 day deals and deals of the weeks.

    im using the artic acelero hybrid on the gtx 680's but ill be swapping them to the 780's (http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/vga/569/accelero-hybrid.html)
    , its like the all in one liquid cpu cooler but it has a shroud with a fan to cool memory and vrm's . there amazing getting full load temps of 43 degrees .

    before the liquid coolers it was one empty looking 900d.

    yeah i work during the week so only occasional fold after i get in and when the computers idle , i like to be around to keep an eye on things .

    but with the 680's on the folding rig im going to run it for a day this weekend , if it all goes smoothly i might start running a few days during the week.

    I'm redoing the CPU loop on Zeus....

    This is how it was:

    http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showpost.php?p=21799698&postcount=125

    But one of the 680's blew up and set fire to the Motherboard.

    MSI replaced the 680, but I had to buy a new Motherboard - the Motherboard water block was a write off as was the gpu water block.

    But now I've just got all new stuff to re do the CPU loop - gonna wait a bit before I do the Titan's (so I can get the water blocks & backing plates all from one place).

    Sorry, I've not had chance to reply to your email - net connection issues - had to call sky to arrange BT Engineer to fix (turns out it was the connection to the telegrapgh pole that was all corroded - just snapped off in his hand when he got hold of it).

    you sold all the 680s of didn't you? whats in there now? 780s? I bet you spend just as much as water cooling as you do on the hardware.

    I really want better cooling so I can buy another 7950 but cant afford a full set up from scratch:( 1 card and I can just buy after market better air cooler, 2 cards and ill need water as the gpu after market coolers take 3 slots up :o

    So what's the score on the 780s and at what clocks?

    Remember that the Core17 units get more points the faster they are finished so stopping folding with units unfinished kills the points you'll get for those and potentially undermines the project so if you need to stop, always set the slots to "Finish" and wait until they're all done before shutting down.

    On the 780rig I'm getting between 230-320k ppd
    The 780's will probably only see weekend work and maybe just one a day during the week.
    I've always been letting the gpu's Finnish the wu, just not the cpu as some times it can take a few hours.
