One other factor to consider...

If one is running their cards that hot, they are more than likely over volting considerably to achieve some insane overclocks.....

Unless you are somehow getting free electric, you are going to be paying DEARLY for those extra mega hashes.

There comes a point where one will hit a wall where the voltage needed to achieve more overclock will start to steeply increase the wattage required.

Ones income will actually decrease in relation to their electric bill on top of putting that GPU to an early grave.

A kill-a-watt meter is one of the best $20-$30 investments you can make in a mining venture.   Smiley

for the record,

the fans I ordered came from:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/280800583937

Ordered two on Saturday, got them on Tuesday (!!)...

I know at least the one is working (already replaced the "mostly-busted" fan).  I assume the second will, too... probably will order another 4 or 5 from that guy.  Most of the other ppl ship from China.


Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

yeah, i went ahead and bought 2 more, at 3 am yesterday (friday)... and he shipped em out that same day.  probably get them on monday, w/ usps working on saturday

i guess with all these fans, maybe i'll just run them at 100% for a while

Running fans at 100% is actually recommended. Gives more air cooling to the bearings so less likely to break or deteriorate Wink

It took me a sec, but I caught the sarcasm. In case anyone else didn't, running fans > 80% has no benefit besides guaranteeing they will be broken in 3 months.

Yet another reason why his Ignore tag is so harshly orange/brown.. Fucking Troll, And scammer. "goes to the Bulanula corner store, Buys a chocolate bar and pays with a $20bill" "NO CHANGE FOR YOU, YOU OVERPAY, NO REFUNDS, I NOT SCAM I JUST NOT GIB YOU CHANGE BAK"

Keep your FUDge in your coffee can at home.

Running my fans at 100% for a year now and nothing happened Kiss

The ones saying it is not good are just playing a game : tell the fools to run fans at 50% say and have the bearings crack from so much temp so more downtime for them and less difficulty for us !

Ad-hominem attacks do not change the validity of his claims.

As I've said in the other thread, research shows that lower temperatures (a result of increasing fan speeds) results in longer bearing life.

well, if 3 of my fans don't die, I'll feel like I wasted $30
