THese gigabyte 7950s are the best - cards are the coolest in whole setup, last night I let the window be open wide, in the morning they were running at 32C

what clock and voltage setting are you using? I have never seen such low temps on my air cooled 7950 @ 1Ghz, 1.09V.

+1

my 7950's nearly keep up with my 7970's, but at a fraction of the power and heat.

I'm tempted to crank my window open and see how low these Zalmans can go. heh..

The lowest I've seen the 7870 was 38C. The 5850 was doing only 41C with some help from the 2x 140mm fans sitting on it and the 6870.

Undervolted 5830 pulls about 120w? If it is 50-60w per SATA connector, then I should be fine.
Nope, you wont be fine, but suit yourself. Just try burning up the mining rig, not the whole house. Smiley

Just to be sure, look for old Halon system, they are the best for taking fires out of electronic equipment Cheesy. On a serious note, I have 3 fire extinguishers, one in every room. And not the small ones, but large. Better safe than sorry

Any of you guys here going for the ASIC? I personally didnt believe in it, and now its too late to invest - however I had a nice ride, making about 18000 BTC in process... Only thing I regret is selling 15000 @19 .... But when I look at it, I invested about 40k in it, it was a nice run. However, I'll keep mining till there is profit, since the electricity is free. Someone will be happy when I start selling, lot of nice cards for cheap.

I am sure someone like king_pin still does not believe in ASICs even though we have now 5 delivered Avalon units (jgarzik, the Foundation, techwtf, xianfu, and another chinese) Wink I just cannot understand why you guys at some point did not believe in ASICs. It is a financially and technologically natural and inevitable evolution of Bitcoin, like pretty much all the other computing industries on earth!

 Let me correct myself. Being in that kind of bussines, I know how much it costs to make a proper asic machine - what avalon made is more of a fpga/asic clone. Avalon delivered 5 items, there is no kind of guarantee that they will deliver all. In ASICminer i believed, since he was planing to spend much more money on development. Basic screwed people over, I believe BFL will too. And I think that avalon first mines with the devices, and then sends them over when all hell breaks loose, so that people who get them will be screwed and never break even. So we didnt say its impossible, its sure as hell was possible at that moment when they announced them, just not for that kind of money.

And seems my hunch has served me good, because those who get their avalons in may/june/july, can only use them as vase holders or so ...

Exactly what the colleague sad!
I know there will be ASIC-s someday, just not today, or in the next month. That is why I called BFL and AVALON liars so many times, cause we all knew it was impossible to deliver in their "fuzzy" time periods.
I did win, by not buying ASIC-s, at lest for now, cause BTC tripled, but I have to admit, the fear of ASICs, stopped me form buying more GPUs. Sad

Well I am at 81 GHs, and no more cards for me, not because I am afraid, but because they will have to build a new nuclear power plant just for me Cheesy. And than it most likely wont be free power....

Just wait a little more time for the entire batch 1 of Avalon to be delivered. You will see.

In ASICminer i believed, since he was planing to spend much more money on development.

You are the only person who seems to believe that ASICminer spent more money [than other vendors].

We have proof that BFL have even more capital than ASICminer. ASICMiner's IPO raised only $200-300k while BFL has presold a few million dollars of devices (we have indirect proof through bitpay who inferred that $250k of ASICs were sold the first 24h alone after the opening of pre-orders) and BFL also claims to have investors (not proven, I will give you that). Plus BFL was already established business having sold thousand of FPGAs in 2012.

So if you base your beliefs on how much money is spent, if you believe in ASICMiner, clearly you should believe in BFL as well.

I am not basing my beliefs on how much money is spent, but what was promised. I simply dont get the maths behind producing 60ghs for ~1000 USD. But if they mine with them for a month or two, what I believe is happening, then it becomes profitable Smiley. And BFL, well... what was their initial release date? thats enough proof for me. I work with people (I own a small company). And if I say their computer will be ready on Thursday, they might consider Friday. But Monday is not good for them, they go somewhere else, and they talk around I am not serious enough. Same thing here, after few months being late, even if they deliver, their credibility is sh*t.

But this is exactly what ASICMiner has produced - and you believe them! 12 Thash/s divided by $200-300k IPO = 60-40 Ghash/s per $1k

You can say that ASICMiner could do it because their 130nm process is cheaper than BFL's 65nm, but BFL is financing themselves with prior FPGA profits, and by manufacturing a lot more chips to recoup the higher NRE - by all estimates they have 100-200 Thash/s of preorders...

Anyway we are getting off-topic here.

 You are simply not getting my line of thinking nor do I get yours. Time will tell. So far, people who payed for asic are screwed. Even when they get them, its for fun, no ROI. As I said, I dont worry for myself, I have made money on btc mining, that my shop makes in 2 years, so I can pass on asics. But people who payed hard cash on it and are sitting empty handed, I dont think they are happy about it.
