If you have other monitors for gaming, and don't plan to game on three monitors, just get a 5770 Eyefinty card, can support 6 monitors...

Ran through some iterations of OC vs. HT-retries last night and have some interesting results.
I had been running an OC of 250 and was getting a larger number of HT-retries than seemed safe.
I ran different OCs, starting at 240 up to 260, in steps of 5, using the same WU, starting from the same point of the fold every time.
The retry count was never zero even at an OC of 240 but was much less than 1 per minute.
Oddly enough I have better and acceptable HT-retry results at an OC of 258 than at 250.I have now run the 258 OC folding over night, 8+ hours, with a retry count of 0xce.
Thats 206 retries over a period of 480 minutes. I'm going to run with this for a few days to get a better accumulation of data points.
One thing of note possibly is that the memory speed was tuned down by the BIOS at OCs of 255 and higher.

On a side note, the board did run fine at an OC of 260 but the retries were up.
And at an OC of 262 (seems to be the max the BIOS would let me try) I could not POST and had to reset the CMOS.

My final low HT-Retry OC appears to be 257.
258 began to pick up more as the days went on.
I'm now getting about 10 an hour with 257 and that seems acceptable.
Still have not had any crashes or lost any WUs since starting.

Hi all, I just bought 4 x 6128's on here and ordered a Supermicro H8QGi-F+ board from Wiredzone. I'm sort of stuck on cooling. I'm a software guy, so the idea of modifying the CM 212 is a little intimidating. But they are also almost half the price of the Noctua units, and I do need 4. Are there any other off-the-shelf suggestions? I'm planning on overclocking.

Thanks!

Wow this is an old thread biggrin.gif

But anyways...I was able to get some of the 90mm Noctuas from Antarespro for only $45 each. I'm not sure if that helps you at all or not, but I thought that was pretty reasonable for being able to use something without modifications and that would handle any overclock you can throw at it. I wasn't able to find the 120mm versions anywhere for a comparable price, though.

If your going to O/C and like to save some money, then the CM212 mod is the way to go. It's not terribly difficult, but is a little rough on the hands(sharp edges). I would suggest ordering some Ball Bearing fans, as the OEM 212 fans only last 3-6 months @ 24/7 usage before the sleeve bearing starts to go.
