1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / WolfgangAmadeusMozartCoin on: July 02, 2017, 02:51:57 PM


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( 27 January 1756 5 December 1791), baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era.

Born in Salzburg, he showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death.

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Capacitor on Graphics Card Exploded on Startup on: January 08, 2014, 07:30:17 PM
Today I woke up with one of my rigs with 2 7950's and 2 7970's (had been running fine for two months or so) off (I noticed a drop in hash power overnight)

I quickly checked around for any burnt cables or connectors and didn't see any, so I pressed the power button and nothing happened.. I then shut the PSU (EVGA G2 1300W) off, waited for any caps to drain, then switched it back on and tried to boot.

The Gigabyte WF3 2.0 7950 I had my monitor plugged into (in the first 16x slot with a 16x-16x riser) experienced a small cap explosion (not one of the larger round ones, one of the little rectangle ones near the VRAM heatsink) and the machine failed to post, with card fans all spinning.

At this point I would assume Motherboard or PSU, however, I'm not sure which. I took the 7950 out and tried to boot with the remaining three cards (just in case it was only the 7950) and the machine failed to even spin up anything (made a slight whine and the fans turned maybe 1/4 a rotation).  Luckily no other cards appear to be damaged, however, I don't want to replace the PSU if this is a MB issue.

I would have taken pics, however, the cap is quite small and the pop/sparks only lasted a second or two... no crazy smoke/flames luckily

Interesting to note is this DID happen on both this machine and another, similar config (ASROCK MB but same model PSU, 4 7950's on that one) (complete with losing one cap on one video card), however, I didn't really think anything of it, as the machines both started right back up and continued hashing with no issues apparent. (other than the pop)

The PSU is an EVGA G2 1300W

I swapped the PSU with a Dell one I knew worked, and I didn't get any video out (using a different GPU I also knew worked)

I then took the 1300W PSU and connected it to a Dell 745 MB (with the same test graphics card) and everything worked fine.

At this point I assume it's an issue with the MB, however, I don't want a replacement to get here only to damage that if it's the PSU instead.

Also, does anyone know what the cap that blew on my card did? If it was just a ripple cap or something not too essential then I'd rather not RMA it (It's under warranty till 2016 luckily) as that means losing at least 3 weeks or so of mining time :-(
