Hi Tex,

I may have to borrow your knowledge to make server run on a system in the future, we will see.
Certainly... Just say the word my friend wink.gif

Hi Finrond,
you should join Team Overclock.net! (This can be done from the project websites)
Thanks.. I'll keep it in mind. Never did join anything, mostly because I didn't understand the reason for joining such a "club" wink.gif For now I'm just little me but lets se when I've got the first 5 HLCLIMGPUBS'ers. I certainly know where I feel "at home" thumb.gif

Sorry for the delayment... Planned an hour of relaxation. This was before I'll stumbled right in to a program in TV. A tribute to Leonard Cohen... With a lot of the better musicians in the world (I think), Nick Cave, Rufus & Martha Wainwright, Julie Crhistensen, Perla Batalla etc. etc. I'm telling you... This was an experience of the few.. A trip to the edge of reason.. Oh My God!!!! Here's one if you like more than just pop wink.gifhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4bYDxbVIKE

OK... Back to work...

Wow, I know the feeling... I get lost on you tube performances sometimes at home... like going to a concert...

Enjoy!

Status "Test System 5" aka "Halifax" - 15.11.14 00:48am:
Control Unit --> "Test System 4" aka "Beaufort" running the config. below.

Note's:
OK!!! I'm a complete imbecile! Found the reason for the increasing GPU heat! Oh my G.., it's so easy! Don't know what I'm been thinking!
This system is running BIOS "standard config." and when the CPU temperature decreases to less than e.g. 40 degrees the chassis fan decrease in RPM accordingly! Why? Because the mobo thermal sensors in standard config. in the BIOS is set to monitor the CPU temperatures, not the M/B redface.gif
Might as well be asleep!! sleepysmileyanim.gif Not doing much better anyway rolleyes.gif


# Internal Data Note:

Status - Alert! Watch Development:
Activate BIOS control setup if it gets worse! Use config. --> Beaufort "Config2"

CPU fan/Levels results:
Level1: 34-37° --> 35°
Level2: 45-47° --> 45°
Level3: 53-56° --> 55°
Level4: 59-62° --> 60°

Internal notes:
----
34-37 35° : 0
----
45-47 45° : 1
----
00-00 55° : 2
00-00 60° : 3
----


Based on these numbers, let's see if we can set some limits in a smart way.

CPU fan/Levels config.:
0° - 39° --> 70% (so that if the boinc-client is idle it'll decrease a little)
40° - 69° --> 80% (operation speed. this is within the limit's of a CPU at 100% +/- 10°)
70° - 79° --> 90% (in case of a special work unit/job like .wu or a hot summer day, it'll increase a little)
80°+ --> (CPU limit reached. maximum speed in case of CPU overheating)

This makes a CPU Config. looking like this. I already set it up in BIOS:
Code:
CPU Config.:
30° --> 70%
40° --> 80%
50° --> 80%
70° --> 90%
80° --> max.

Hi JetPak12,
Quote:
I believe you have what is called the GT640 "Rev 2". On top of having GDDR5 in place of GDDR3, it also has a cut down core with fewer ROPs and texture mappers, but the shader count remains the same as the old GT640. It also got a decent stock clock boost, which should work out to better compute performance at less watts. thumb.gif
I have the Gigabyte version of the same card running in the BGB right now and it has been staying right at 59C for the past two days with 99% GPU usage and fan settings on auto. It also has an 8800GT sandwiched right on top of it running at full bore too, and I think temps on that guy are in the 70s (and the 8800GT fan is so much louder! rolleyes.gif)

Regarding this:
"....I have the Gigabyte version of the same card running in the BGB right now and it has been staying right at 59C for the past two days with 99% GPU usage and fan settings on auto..."

How does it run? No problems yet? Because I've had a card crashed and replaced because of a hardware failure!!! I know that it's able to endure 95 degrees heat (Celsius, right? I hope it is) In my case the vendor is Asus and if I'm remembering correctly, it should be able to endure 95 degrees Celsius. Hope it's not Fahrenheit and that I've been a complete fool. Don't know the scale so I'm not aware of the diff.

Not to worry! Just about any modern GPU can handle 80-C 24/7 and the failed one you had is just production fallout.

Looks perfect temperature wise to me! My GTX 560 Ti cards run 58-60C 24/7 water cooled without a glitch for 3 years now... still kicking! My water cooled GTX 460's OC to 900MHz and ran about the same, but those are retired now... maybe put the fans back on them and give away as a prize too...eventually....someday....

LOL!

I don't run my card like you do in continuous load, but I have not had any problems with mine. My main GPU is now a 290X so I'll probably have it running more often now on BOINC in the secondary slot.

But yes, my temps were in Celsius, and in some cases its run up to 90C without any problems. The GPU's fan has been sufficient on its own to keep it below 90C.

Thanks my friend. Then I'll relax just a little wink.gif The reason I'm all over this is because of the card that failed of course. But besides that I once noticed the card heatsink to be very very hot. More than the 55-58 degrees "nvidia-smi" reported. A least that's what I think! I didn't measure it. And I've learned not to trust those thermal sensors to much. But when you are telling me you ran a card up to 90 degrees Celsius or close to this, then I'm not that worried any more wink.gif

OK, thanks... I've got a GTX770 using standard fan's and this card isn't getting past 60 degrees I think it is (as the image below illustrates) wink.gif Actually I've been thinking about installing 2 more. Just to see how much a "normal" desktop can do. The mobo I'm using on this box is a Asus Maximus Extreme VI with 5 PCI-e slots, 4 standard GPU's/cards og 3 "double" cards or what it's called.
I'm testing and learning about these other cards for "Headless Linux CLI Multiple GPU Boinc Server" markII. As we talked about a little while back it just has to be low profile cards, so I'm thinking about using watercooling for this version. But much can change between now and then anyway wink.gif The mobo I'm using right now is according to ASRock coated and more or less waterproof. So I'm keeping it in mind all the time, that I may have to use watercooling.

Well, when one water cools the GPU's, the stock fans/heatsink come off and the GPU water block goes on... I meant that I would need to remove the water block and re-install the original coolers.

Then I could give them away as a BGB prize or sell them for $15 on ebay or something...

Hi Tex,

OK... I see.. Sorry for asking redface.gif
I've been studying those water units/blocks but haven't been able to find a site with blocks for e.g. Asus GT640 Low Profile !! Found a lot of different models listed. Thousands... But not any that fitted my cards.. As I mumbled about earlier on I'm thinking about using watercooling for the next model.
Something nice has happened in the Kingdom of Denmark... A shipping business which does nothing but handling delivering of goods from The States to Denmark. So now it's possible to order anything from over there. Well, if the advert is to be believed anyway.. thumb.gif

Status "Test System 5" aka "Halifax" - 17.11.14 02:57pm:
Control unit for "Test System 4" aka "Beaufort".
"Beaufort" is using BIOS config.2 from Test2! Is still looking good. CPU at 60 degrees but is till 10 degrees from the limit (limit for 90% fan speed). Seems to be a great config.!!

Has gone down a little, but is still high. Higher than the exact same machine "Beaufort" anyway. Not that hot compared to the critical limits for GPU's and the CPU. Let's go on with MSMTP config and the Shell-Scripts.. I hope they'll run without any further issues for a few days, so that we can get those scripts implemented wink.gif
OK, it's running a little hot becase of the BIOS config./fan setup. But it's been running for 14 days without any errors now and it really seems to be a good and stable system now. We are getting close now!! Let's get them scripts done and get some additional security. Security in terms of knowledge, knowledge that we'll be alerted if something happens on the system wink.gif

Running very nicely! This is without any doubt the longest we've had a 4 GPU system running at 100% 24/7 without any failures/errors!! The reason I notified about the "high temperature was only because of the limit we set earlier on. The systems looks to be running perfectly. When switching to the same BIOS Fan Control Plan as Test System 5 aka Beaufort, it'll only be better wink.gif I think we'' end the test here and go on with the shell scripts wink.gif

BTW I'm introducing Test System 6 aka "Whitley" which will be the same mobo and of course the same industrial Papst Fans, 2U PSU and 2U CPU cooler, but I'm thinking of testing an i7, just to see if I'm right in my assumption from earlier on. That the i7 wouldn't make that much of a difference in this "data chewing" case. What do you think??
