drivers to have CUDA capability, which I need for BOINC, I'll probably try to switch back
to Linux at some point because I much prefer that, it's where I feel at home
But I'm still saving up money for the final stages.
Specifically, primarily for the fittings and probably a rather big and expensive piece of
acetal to make a midplate, though that's not final yet. Possibly also a second GPU,
depending on budget, although probably not a Titan, just a 780. I don't need SLI since
they will just be doing BOINC, so I don't need identical GPUs.
So yeah, still on hold, but not abandoned.
This is it in its current form. When running both the GPU and the CPUs at stock at
full load, it pulls a bit less than 550 W from the wall socket. I only have one 560 in
the loop at the moment, the other radiators aren't hooket up yet. Temps when under
full load are 45~50 C with a bit more than 20 C ambient and the fans running at
about 5~6 V (the GPU's power delivery system is actually louder than the fans).
So yeah, there is definitely enough radiatorage in this build, no problem at all, I
could even add another two GPUs (probably won't though, power bill would be
ridiculous in 24/7 operation at full load for BOINC) without a problem I reckon.
Anyway, sorry for the dark pic, but you get the rough idea:
