I have an agreement with fulepp to sell him:
- 3x 5870, one XFX, 2 Saphire (one of the latter has issues with the fan at low RPM, but has been working fine at 90%)
- 1x MSI 790GX-GD70
- 1x AMD Sempron 140 with stock cooler

All the hardware is working great except for the fan thing mentioned. All cards have the BIOS tweaked to allow lower memory clocks (150Mhz) and all are doing at least 940MHz stable. There's plenty of dust on the cards, but I'm not charging extra for that Smiley

Price agreed is 100btc, shipping included. fulepp will pay me 70btc first, and the other 30btc will follow in at most 30 days. Once I receive the first payment I'll ship with tracking.

Payment can be done to address: 1PE3R2ADah8EJ16fp5e41BR86me27sNPFK

PS: The 'magic ram speed', as best as I could find, is 190MHz.

Hi Nelisky,

I just sent you the 70 BTC. I already sent you my address. Please provide me the tracking number for the package.

Question? isnt the 790 a AM2/AM3 board? If so, how do you use the 1x port to mine without bottlenecking the gpu.

Mining uses very little bandwidth at all, 1x works great.
I have a board with 6 5870's on it, 2 of them are using 1x slots, and a third is using an old PCI slot, via a PCI-to-PCIexpress converter. Works great.

^^this   and the board has 4x full length x16 slots and 1x x1; "4 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slots (2x16 and 2x8 mode)1 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slot" and is crossfire capable.

mining and single lanes get along very well. I've got a gigabyte board with 1x x16 and 3x x1 that runs 4 cards quite happily. It even plays videos at the same time with the video out on a x1 lane.

cheers

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

@fulepp: received. As I had told you I'll send today and will provide tracking number.

@everyone else: Communication along the PCI express is hardly the bottleneck with current generation GPUs (when mining). I have ran 4 x 5970 (that's 8 GPU cores) on another board (an ASUS, can't remember the model) using 2 full length PCIe (at 8x) and 2 1x ports, without any performance degradation, though that was an LGA775 board.

If you're using OpenGL only that is..

Hi Nelisky,

Thanks for the pack! It arrived in one piece. I will clean it and start to use it next week.

I just sent you the remaining 30 BTC. I beleive it will be there shortly.

Sorry about the accumulated dust Smiley Everything is in very good shape and I'm sure you will mine many a good coin with it!

Received. So bar you having any issue with the hardware, this trade is concluded.

Thanks!
