Then it should be using at least 12 gauge wiring, or it isn't up to spec. If I recall correctly, 14g is fine for a 15 amp line, and 12g is rated for the 20 amp lines. My small house that I'm renting has only two lines, both 15 amps.

Just looked it up, 14 (copper) and 12 (copper clad-aluminum) gauge wires are to be used for 0-2000 volt applications.

On air. GPU-z reading is actually 0.998V so I think I have a really good chip.

Most of the important high load sockets in my home are too. But, I buy my homes stripped to the bones, & rewire everything to suit my needs. Mostly, so I can make sure everything's done to my satisfaction, & I'm not getting ripped off by a fresh pretty skin covering up rotted decay or substandard construction. I didn't bother with the sockets like, by the beds for instance, places where there's only likely to be a lamp & docking clock radio. biggrin.gif You'll likely find 12/3 connecting everything in the walls w/ 20a. wink.gif


Getting into mining though, I'm starting to wish I'd dropped a 220v 50a leg into one of the spare bedrooms... Lol!

I have only 2 outlets in this office room, I think the one is free and clear 100% available to me, the other one may be shared with the next office over. Breaker box is right outside my office door, so the cable runs from that box should be in the 30ft range unless they did some really strange routing. Also one of the receptacles says 15 amp rating, so I would guess that's what it is. The maintenance guy for the building didn't know when I asked him before, he just suggested they were standard 15 amp.

I need to run some type of extension or power strip from the receptacle on one wall, across to where all my pc's are, so I was just trying to determine what I needed to buy to accomplish that. Currently I have everything but a microwave and fridge pulling from 1 side. To accommodate my mining gear, I will have to balance the load between these 2 and hope they are separate circuits...


Your extrapolations are correct, if more than a bit on the cautious side. But, so is minimum building code, for an inherent margin of error being accounted for. wink.gif


As for the plans: Likely, the sockets in that room are not on separate circuits. That's pretty rare in modern construction (bean counters + profit margins= minimum code. Only unless you pay extra. With commercial rental properties, that's even less likely unless they were designed for industrial applications). Often times, you'll see a daisy chained set of sockets off of the same circuit leg unless you designated it in the plans to be on separate legs yourself, unfortunately. Like I said earlier though, the wiring on the Belkin is more than capable of holding up it's end of the bargain safely. That, you don't have to worry about. smile.gif


Whether the contractor that built the building, or the inspector that passed the building was shady, is an entirely different matter. Most unfortunate, is that both of those occurrences are becoming ever more prevalent in the construction market over the past 30 years. I wish I could be more positive on that note, but of what I've personally run across over a span of more than a "few buildings", that's just not realistic of me to do.


On the up side, it's not exactly difficult to drop a second leg yourself & upgrade the breaker itself with the breaker box so close to your office, if you find your setup tripping breakers.



No love for my mad oc'ing TF3 results... frown.gif

My Swiftech H320 came in today. If all goes well it should be installed in the next 24 hours and mining Datacoins, Primecoins or Protoshares. Quite a variety to choose from.

Nice, I'll do some testing this weekend. The .025 drop already shaved 50 watts and 8-10c total. Dropping further to 1.050v or further would be great thumb.gif

Nice, 0.925v is the way to go with 7970/280X.

Alright well it sounds to me that he is stuck in 2d mode and setting unofficial overclocking mode without powerplay support in afterburner will definitely fix that!

How do you make a vbs file to mine? I really want to mine of some 3rd gen i3s lol. There's like 30 of them wink.gif

Yup, that's about typical. I wouldn't touch CCA though, that stuff is garbage. It eats up a decent amount of current through the increased electrical resistance, making whatever you wire with it a little less energy efficient. Hence the larger gauge requirements when using it.

biggrin.gif Yeah, it's pretty crazy for a 7950, no doubt. wink.gif I was soooooo hoping I'd get it to 2Ghz on the memory. So close, and yet so far away... :/ It's stable at 1980 mem, but I started losing kh/s. She's running at 1325 core now, & I know it drops off a bit at 1335 Mhz, but I'll have to keep a close eye on it to see what the averages look like vs. 1320. I'm almost tempted to take it offline for a moment to run some benchmarks, lol!
