Only a reference card will get you close to or at 400 over-volted.

Got it working. Instead of choosing to turn the display off I set a blank screensaver.  Grin
I don't know why you guys are having an issue, I used to turn off my monitors just fine and it still works.

This article shows up on HN:

about a botnet that's almost indestructible and operates on p2p encrypted communication.

Could it be possible this is what bitcoin is used for? LOLLL

Thanks for feedback everyone, I've listed the cards in other places now. Lowering price to $170 each for LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. Everyone else expect that price + shipping costs.

Not like I put any "miles" on them lol. Look brand new, never abused, original packaging and parts. What's the difference when you wanna mine?

Miners will always be around and the mh you get for the value of the card is still a bargain. Don't believe me? do the math on 6990s and you'll see that 5850's are by far the best value. They're in high demand STILL and there aren't many for sale. $200 is fine, don't listen to any other lowballer stuff. If they think they can get it cheaper within reasonable time  - let them try lol.

Difficulty increase has no effect on the price of the card, its not like those ati guys are cranking out new cards just for you miners because they are aware you need more of them to keep up with bitcoin mining difficulty ROFL.

Only 1 pm? I'm waiting on response from this person. I'll wait till tomorrow and list them on ebay. Nobody interested in these beauties? All shiny clean, wrapped, boxed up and ready to go!
9  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTS] Mining Equipment (Radeon 5850, Mobos, CPU) on: June 28, 2011, 05:28:28 PM
5870s sell for $200-$210 used.  5850s should be closer to 150.
Only in a perfect world where everything is in stock. Good luck finding those in stock rofl. I'd say 200 is just right

12  Economy / Goods / [SOLD] 5850 cards x2 on: June 28, 2011, 01:00:53 AM
I am selling my ASUS EAH5850 DIRECTCU w/ Voltage Tweak cards (x2) - will sell separately as well.  The cards have been running about 2 weeks and look new. They have been overclocked but never over-volted and always ran very cool.  Original packaging. Will throw in dummy plugs for free.

Asking $400 (both, US shipped) or $200 (per, US shipped).  

Will accept Paypal (verified only), Dwolla or BTC equivalent (notice I have no rating and you would be assuming any risk if going BTC route). If you're in SoCal area and want to pick it/them up, all the better!

Here are a few pics but I can also take more if needed, or show you proof of purchase or anything else you need to ask me about.

I see what you mean. This case has horrible airflow and no side intake. I just removed the side and its already 17 degrees cooler! Was at 85 or so now 68.

Wow I guess that answers it!  The other case has perfect airflow, 2 front intakes, 1 side intake, no obstructions whatsoever, removed all lower bays. 2 upper fans blowing out and one in the rear and it runs at a constant 65ish degrees.

I can't believe I paid so much for that case back in the day!
14  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Keeping your system cool, case or no case? on: June 14, 2011, 02:53:26 AM
I've got 2 pcs, one is running fairly cool and I believe it will sustain during the hot summer as well. The other system is using an older case and is constantly running 10-15 degrees higher and I'm really worried about it getting overheated in the summer as I don't always run my AC.

Is it better to have it out without a case sitting somewhere? Or should I try to get another one that's same as my first one?

How do people go about setting up their rigs?

This sounds like a good idea and a logical step forward to bringing new payment methods to existing merchants without having to educate them on how it works exactly. I can see this working but I'm not sure if this is viable right now. The exchange rates are too volatile and even if you used gox api to position a merchant 50/50 coin / USD it could prove difficult to sell the coins. It only takes a small group of people trying to sell all their coins at x fixed price to drive the entire market down and leave you unable to crash out.

This is a good concept and I'd love to see it turn into a reality, bumping this up.

I'm curious, why do we even have transaction fees in the main client?

No, you can use a single worker without any problems. Workers are primarily for tracking purposes in case you wanted to know how well each gpu/card is performing or which one is down or any other reason you can think of.
