This thread needs more discussion of what beer is best for drinking while mining.

"While" mining? Single malt whisky  Wink

pffft.  elitist.

i like my mining brew like my GPU card - overvolted and bubbly.

watch the wording there.... a 1KW PSU doesn't mean 1KW of power usage!

Since power supplies aren't 100% efficient, it actually means more than that if it's maxed out 24/7 which is what I was assuming. That's also irrelevant to my point.

Whether it's $500 a year or $250 a year, if you aren't paying for it, someone else is.

yes but the landlord won't notice it that much

and 300W at 80% efficiency is still like 375W, not 1KW!

You're the one that's talking about a 300W power supply. I'm talking about 1000W power supply. I have no idea what he's actually using. It was just an example. Calm down.

I'll throw in my 2 cents and say that I originally had my cards set up with linux (6990s on Ubuntu 11.3 with newest Stream + SDK) but ran into too many issues in getting OpenCL and the cards working.

I had to roll back to roll back to a earlier version of Ubuntu and an earlier SDK, and was getting about 200-300 mhps per core.  It varied widely though and stopping one core caused the other to rise.. very shotty support.

I reluctantly threw win7 on another hard drive and loaded the newest drivers, etc, and am now pulling 335 mhps per core, very steadily.  So, in my experience, windows has been more stable.  Presumably due to better driver support...
