Finally - having worked out the voodoo magick required to get all 5 PCIe slots on the P8Z68-V logic board working with GPUs installed - I've upgraded Frame Rigs mk1 and mk2 so ALL available PCIe slots have a GPU card fitted, and upped the capacity of the PSUs so all GPUs can be reasonably powerful cards. The two rigs contain, in order of hash-rate achieved (i.e. how far each card in each class will overclock... some are a LOT better than others!):

1x Sapphire 'old' 5850 (awesome card - fastest in the Catfish farm and runs cool (67˚C) whilst whipping the rest for hashrate)
1x Sapphire 'extreme' 5850 (not so 'extreme' - I hate that word, overused to the point of meaninglessness - but clock up between 370 and 390 MH/s)
2x XFX 'Black Edition' 5850 (very disappointed with these - clocked at 765 MHz with a 775 recommended upper limit!!!)
3x 'Value' 5830 (from overclock.co.uk - all have broken fan shroud flanges but are perfectly functional, overclock from 800 MHz to 990...)
2x 'Value' 5830 (as above, second purchase, cards look identical but recommended upper limits are different, one can't sustain 990 MHz, one can)
2x Sapphire 'old' 5770 (dual-slot retail cards, clocked at 850 MHz but go all the way to 1000 - 236 MH/s with only one PCIe power cable)



My first mining card ever purchased was the 'old' retail Sapphire 5850 - £175 from PC World (yeah, I know) - but it's a monster and no other card I've bought since can match it for hash rate. Weirdly enough, rotating the second rig 90 degrees has hugely improved airflow - all cards are overclocked but all but 3 are running stably below 70˚C. The ones above 70˚C are 70.5, 71 and 71... not bad for 2kW of space heater!



Nice to get rid of those anaemic single-slot 5770s at last - they will be going in a 'final' rig - assuming I can kick this damn mining-hardware addiction Smiley



This entire 5-card rig runs each card between 57˚C and 70.5˚C, and doesn't seem to be overstressing the CoolerMaster SilentPro 1000W PSU. The word 'Silent' is laughable, since 11 GPU fans running flat out makes a HUGE amount of noise Cheesy



Apart from the voodoo on the 5-card logic board, all other cards are connected to their logic boards using unpowered x1->x16 PCIe extender cables. It's hard to make this sort of thing tidy, but I'm convinced that my choice to use x1 thickness ribbon cables (as opposed to full-width x16->x16 PCIe extenders where possible) improves airflow, and hence cooling performance.



Yup... need to use my Nikon and proper macro lens  Undecided  Undecided

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

Here it is, I finally got around to getting the camera out.
This is my home made/bodged/ghetto cabinet I threw together one weekend.
It was an old glass cabinet I found in a skip which I ripped all the glass out apart from the door and replaced with some perspex I had lying around.
It cost me nothing to make, apart from buying the bathroom extractor fans.
4 x 5870's in the top & 2 x 6990's in the bottom.
I had some real trouble cutting that perspex with a jigsaw causing some splits and cracks (easily fixed with good old super glue) Until I discovered some spray grease and covered the blade and perspex to keep it cool while cutting.
And yes, that's a pair of my mothers tights I stole to use as air filters!
I salvaged an old computer case for the hdd bay & the power switches for the side. (it was such a pain leaning inside and using a piece of plastic to flip the switch)
You can't really see from the pictures but I used to use cardboard to wedge the 5870's apart for airflow, but I have upgraded to a length of meccano which works perfectly (hence the little meccano spanner)
This is running happily in my garage which is about 30m away from my house, I bought some old routers off ebay and set them up as access points to get internet in there.

Clocks:
5870 1: 985/300 458mhs 72C
5870 2: 940/300 437mhs 65C
5870 3: 940/300 437mhs 60C
5870 4: 940/300 437mhs 63C
6990 1: 920/600 413mhs 72C
6990 2: 920/600 413mhs 71C
6990 3: 920/600 413mhs 73C
6990 4: 920/600 413mhs 69C
All fans are at 85% and ambient room is around 25C

What miner are you using to get 458 MH/s at only 985MHz?  It takes me like 1010MHz to hit that number with the phatk 3% mod.

I use phoenix with phatk 2.2, I think its mostly due to using a headless Linux setup. I have a Windows machine with a 5870 that only gets 445 @ 985 though its my daily workstation and has Aero and other crap enabled.

how did you get the 6990 memory to 600? flash bios and running linux?

A joy for the eyes! This is how it should be done. Proper housing improves air flow and thus keeps the temperatures down. Thumbs up!

Bios is flashed on both the 6990's & 5870's, I did have the 6990's sitting at 150hmz mem clock but I was worried it would cause damage so I upped them just in case.

Yes, headless Ubuntu, works great.

Where is your Ares?

I'll show you mine if you show me yours

Grin

My ares were sold a few months ago, one for $1400, the other for $1000. I still have pics if you want to see them xD

I've seen other posts where it's been verified to work. No guarantee it works on all motherboards but at least for some it does.

I see you got some Vornado fans on those 6990s, how big of a difference do they make versus a cheap Honeywell desktop fan?  I know those suckers are strong but not as strong as those Lasko/Stanley mini carpet blower fans....It's all about efficiency at this point though  Wink

6970 I wish was 6990's Cheesy
almost 10 degrees less, it's not really cooling down the card directly but moving away the heat form the areas! Make a big difference

I am going to move things around and I am in the process to change all the cards with 5830, hash/watt/$ are the best

I got inspired from some rig on the wall I am thinking to place the PSU there Cheesy

very nice!

whats the temp of the 3 cards, and the water temp before and after the 3 cards? what watercooling system are you using?
