Re: Low power video card

There is a GTX 1030 too, passive and with a fan. Not sure on the power though idling.

That sounds cool, I wish I had any skill I could lend, but if it doesn't involve welding, sanding, or painting, I'm not good for much.
You forgot BOINC and Linux!!!

It's just inconvenient for it to happen in the middle of a contest!
In my case that is the way it always goes!!
Then again, mine are usually self inflicted issues.

Well, that's better than what just happened to me. 12C/24T Xeon system with a 1070ti just went tits up. No response at all, no beeps, nothing. Stripped to a minimal config with the onboard VGA, still nothing. She's dead, Jim.
Sorry to hear :cry:

Re: To Hell in a hand basket

Well this machine is just plain old jacked! I have done everything I can possibly think of except for reformatting the HD. Which is most likely the cure for my issue I do believe. There seems to be a conflict with something program wise and I cannot figure it out. I have went back to the basics on t...

Re: To Hell in a hand basket

Well, I have determined that this machine just does not like Ibercivis. I can run any other BOINC project without an issue. The moment I try to run Ibercivis, everything goes to hell in a hand basket. I even tried 1 task, no dice.

Re: To Hell in a hand basket

Try taking the whole thing outside and pressure washing it with bleach additive, could have caught corona virus. I was thinking more in the lines of a big hammer. :x Although I might have solved it hopefully. Uninstalled and reinstalled GPUS drivers after a reboot with ckdisc (or whatever the cmd i...

Re: To Hell in a hand basket

How old is that PSU? 6 years if I looked up the correct one. EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2 Power Supply Purchase Date: 11/11/2014 EDIT: I do have a BNIB 850 that will work in this machine. I had the same thoughts about the PSU, but that shouldn't have any affect on restart or shut down times. ( I wouldn't...

Re: To Hell in a hand basket

Could the system have been out of memory when you encountered it unresponsive in the morning? I wouldn't think so, It had 64gb but I had to remove a bad stick (weeks ago) so it's at 56gb now. I was running Amicable and Ibercivis with only 50% threads in preferences.(6850k) IIRC it was only using 42...

To Hell in a hand basket

Well my daily machine has went to hell in a hand basket overnight. System was pretty much unresponsive this morning, FF wouldn't load, BOINC appeared frozen but GPU fans were running and compensating for change in temps. I suspended BOINC, closed it and hit restart (Win10 machine) Restart page comes...

Sorry Crash, I had forgotten about this over here. I'm old and set in my ways, not that I have any skills or information to share :lol: habit sends me to the SSC. Is there a way to get e-mail notification from this site? Not just this thread?
