What are you using to cool down those vrms? What tems you got with that setup on gpu/vrm?
Some of those watered vga's looks similar to corsair H60/h80 series, is it?

Just using some spare 92mm fans for the cards and a 120mm fan on the bench setup.  The 7870 doesn't have any heatsinks on the MOSFETs and the 7950 already had a metal plate installed over the power circuity.

The 7870 doesn't have any monitoring for the VRMs but with the 7950 it is usually about 72°C versus 86°C before.  The GPU dropped quite a bit - on the 7870 it went from 73°C down to 44°C and the 7950 went from 82°C down to 47°C.

The one on the left is a Thermaltake WATER2.0 Performer and WATER2.0 Pro on the right.  They're very similar to the Antec H20 Kuhler series which all share the same OEM, Asetek.  On my bench, I'm using the Performer for my 7950 and it cools adequately (GPU: 55°C / VRM: 71°C).

What model of 7950 is that?
My reference 7970 cooler have no metal plate over vrms, so they got hot when i putted accelero xtreme 7970 on it, although i have instaled vrm heatsinks, temps are higher then with reference cooler ~ 100

The reference 7970 cooler cools the VRMs directly, but the accelero needs a VRM heatsink, and you will see higher VRM temps.

Yes.

Thats why i stept back to refernce cooler, could not cool vrms good enogh Sad
Any ideas, experience with custom vrm coolers?

The reason why they're so hot is because your Accelero is blowing hot air passed by the fins onto them.  By removing that it won't be as hot - hence my solution.  Wink

bump, I'd like to see higher res photos of more professional setups.  Maybe a little wire management, with some air flow design kept in mind....

I'm surprised your RAM isn't watercooled Wink

What cards are those?

The memory will be watercooled soon, and its just a pair of 5850's for now.  This is the old gaming rig that got retired to mining, and the ram block came out for the new rig till I can get a replacement in.

You already have way to much on that loop. It's silly to water cooling anything but the gpu and cpu. Every time you add something, everything else will get hotter. Since things like ram don't benefit from water cooling it's just counter productive especially for mining. If its staying cool now, it's probably because the cards have a low hash rates. It would definitely not hold up if you upgraded to gpu's with high hash rates.

No you're wrong! Why don't you WC the PSU while ur at it, and eliminate as many fans as you can!

So what kind of money are you guys getting back? If you feel comfortable enough, just give us an example of how much money you made the last month of mining? I'd LOVE to just leave for work knowing I have a mining rig working its butt off making me a little extra money. Not knowing what hardware to buy is what is killing me. ASIC hadware is out I see but only by small companies.

I started off with these 3 5850s.



Eventually upgraded to 3 7950s.

Ah... looks like I forgot to post a couple of my rigs in here after all... might as well before I rebuild them, which will be happening soon. These aren't new - the FPGA rigs were built in May this year:

GPUs (two of these, only one still going):


FPGAs:







...so I give in to the rhythm, the click click clack
I'm too wasted to fight back...

So is the Aboslute for water cooling or for when the price of bitcoins drop Smiley.  Cool setups.

Where exactly is the 6990?
It is in the CPU at the bottom of the rack, I slow down to show the card running at the end of the video.  I put the Artic cool fan on it so it does not look like a factory one if you missed it.  Watch it again and you will see  Grin.

That factory fan sucks balls big time.
