Mine PSU is EVGA nex750G not b
But when we are in topic of PSU's in my second PC, I have BeQuiet E6-500W which have 2 cables to power fans. I was very supprised when i checked the voltage, and it shows that those cables have 5v xD Do you think that's not a bug, that's a feature? biggrin.gif

In my experience, that's usually due to the card needing to be reflowed rather than a power supply issue, although I'd advise you to test with a known good unit before making any conclusions. All the cards I've had that artifacted in the BIOS were fixed after a reflow (total of 4 now), mind you, all of them were ghetto reflows in a gas oven but results are results thumb.gif (200°C for 10 minutes if you were wondering)

I always thought that's 15 minutes in 180°C in electric oven biggrin.gif In my post I meant that this crappy PSU fried this GTX 260 because voltage on 12V was about 12,5 - 12,6V which through few years could made a difference.

It's hard to say. I cant imagine the die would have run at a higher voltage, but it sure would put a bit of extra stress of the VRMs, possibly even run them out of spec. At the very least it would likely generate more heat than necessary which is going to shorten the lifespan regardless.

A bit more on topic, I just finished ghetto mounting some coolers to my 2P board so I can do some mining/encoding. The tower cooler is mounted with some screws where the push pins used to be. The top-down cooler needed some 20mm standoffs and some screws with springs i salvaged from another heatsink. Using the fan from an Intel stock heatsink since the other one I had was far too loud. Also had to make my own power button with a soldering iron, crimper and a fan header since that's all I have with me at the moment, works fine though.

Picked up a pair of Xeon X5660s on eBay for a decent price, got the board at a steal for $50 and had the rest lying around. I can even get Windows server for free through my university

considering atx spec on 12v rail is 12.6 i am sure it is fine

Actually 12 ram slots, 6 per physical CPU thumb.gif Here's a better picture of the whole board. Was an old rackmount server board, $50 shipped off ebay, guy must have wanted it gone. Running it on top of a box at the moment



Running 2 6-core Xeons, for a total of 12 cores (24 threads). Only 8gb of ram installed but it's enough for now, considering getting some hard drives to fill up those 6 sata ports and making a file server

8GB can really get you places.
I need to get a second E5430 for my S5000PSL board. I say you have a nicer board than me, considering the layout and the ports. Is that a LGA771 board, or a different socket?
