And the servers pull a ton of air out the back, so if I set things up right I think I can suck the heat that's generated from the remaining seven cards out with them. The six in the servers will be exhausted out the window. May make them run a little hotter, but that's my plan.
A little preplanning is always better, particularly when it comes to airflow. Set up like that with the cards under water, it should stay a lot cooler than your currently experiencing.....
The servers should easily handle the load of two cards each like they weren't even there, four cards would be best. then you would be down to four machines. That would take a huge chunk of the power bill away, and make for more efficient heat evacuation.
Sometimes I wish I had stuck with the ideal of each of these being DP's but sometimes I'm glad they aren't, the heat would have killed me...
All of mine are running on AMD visheras. Ancient hardware but rock solid stable... the MB's are MSI 990 FX GD 80's, all are good for three cards if under water and a 1.5k power supply, that is my only open upgrade space and the AC takes that out.
We gained 20 mil+ on GC today, your contribution and finally getting mine re-stable again after the pentathlon.
