Question to 24/7 folders - Page 6

post #51 of 61
I've never had a piece of hardware fail. Like many others I have had gpus and cpus folding 100% 24x7 for years without fail. Just make sure everything stays cool and doesn't overheat and you will be fine.

Have you ever encountered performance degradation?
post #53 of 61
I'll just be blunt and go straight to the point, your better off folding with the i7 930 instead of the two 5850s.
Less heat, noise, better performance.

I work for an OEM that sells (globally) the infrastructure for data centers. From the small UPS under your desk at home to the paralleled multi-megawatt systems, the cooling gear, and all support equipment in between. Specifically, I work in the service department and deal directly with customers and their service/warranty concerns. I can not imagine walking into a customer's site and saying "you have been actually using this thing at 100% load!?! we didn't design it to actually be used all the time". I would get thrown off their site so quickly it would be funny. Unless the product warranty spells out some kind of "duty cycle" (like a welder states 50% meaning 5 minutes of welding at 100% then 5 minutes to cool), then there is no legal way they can tell you how much use their components are warrantied for. I deal with this all day, it doesn't matter is you use it for 5 minutes for 24/7. The only way they can void a warranty is if you change the component from the design spec and it can be proven to have caused the failure- like unlocking voltage and exceeding it's design limit.

if they decide to tell you no, cite this: Magnuson-Moss warranty act. If your claim is legit, that will stop them dead in their tracks.
