If its on a really nice looking rack, it should be less of an eye sore and should open up the number of opportunities we have at getting is placed somewhere.

NEVER use a SATA to PCIe connector - don't know who the hell thought of that idea but that is just asking for a problem since the SATA connectors were never designed to deliver that much power.
How much power is SATA cable rated for?
I have 5830's that's undervolted, and was thinking of using SATA to PCI-E power cables.

IMO, just use PCI-E plug splitters. Some power supplies split a set of 6 wires (3 hot, 3 ground) to 2 6+2 plugs already (300 watts!). With SATA, you only have 1 hot and 2 grounds, and they are likely thinner gauge wire, plus the connectors are not rated for a significant power draw.

Here are the PCI-E power plug splitters that I use. They take in a 6 pin plug (or 6+2, but it only takes in 6) and output 2 6+2 plugs, essentially adding one additional PCI-E plug per splitter. I love them. They are $3 each with free shipping if bought in volume at newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812198018

Been looking for these in the UK - just can't find them anywhere. If anyone would be interested in sending a few over there's a small bounty on offer......Thanks muchly.

Room 1 - theres 14 x 2 x 7970s Smiley, just dont have a wide angle lens to get the whole room. Will post Room 2 and 3 later Smiley



Does each board need it's own bootup drive/OS?

How are they are managed?

 No it doesnt. I have them simply because it was easier for me, and I also run some other software that need win 7 64bit. Mostly people run linux from a flash drive, or you can also boot over network

Very very nice, but that is not what I would call a mining rig. Water cooled CPU, what for? This is just an excellent gaming PC.
Where is the fire hazard, where is the duct tape ?

Booooring...

(Don't get me wrong, from a gamer POV I envy what you have there. Although I have a big bunch of high-end cards in the other room, my gaming card right now is a GeForce 7025  Roll Eyes )

And since I have seen where the discussion is going, this is Room 3, actually by time, it was Room 1 - my first bitcoin project - for those who like more cards on one motherboard, and custom built solutions. My 5970s and 6950s - only problem is they pull too much power.  



Where do you get that metal frame that the video cards are on?

Does anyone currently have a setup for sale? Im interested in mining, but not quite tech savvy enough to set up myself. Im sure with weeks of research I could build some legit; Is it cost effective to buy a rig? or would I be better off doing the research and building my own. I have several computers laying around at the moment I could piece from, and about $1k to invest. How many coins are you guys generating per day or per week?

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.

 Sorry for answering this late, I missed your post. I am running the cards 1GHz, 625MHz memory, 0.956V core. But you have to bear in mind that when I measured this it was -2C outside, and the window is very big.

 And whoever questioned me buying the 7950s, in next 3 days I will break even Tongue. With this price, and the average of like 10 btc a day for last 15 days, it was a good investment. And we are still not swamped by ASIC, the story I have been listening to for what, 5 months now ?

You'd really have to be pretty quick about it, so they say. Everyone talks about ASIC's hitting the wild all the time but when you really look at what's happening, nothing. If I had the space and free electric I would invest with GPU mining myself right now. No doubt.

He's not the only one either. Why else would cards be going for $20-30 more on ebay than they were in June of last year if that wasn't the case. I would invest in gpu's still if the price is right. At least until I max out my 30amp 240v circuit which won't be too much further. It will probably be end of summer at least I imagine before asic are in the mainstream. Most of these asic companies are pathological liars. There's no way in hell bfl (or anybody) is sending out thousands of miners in a couple weeks
