Dedicated folding cards / GPU Farm - Page 11

Wow thats great! +rep for the suggestion. I was afraid i would have to spend $400 on those pcie cables. So with this method, i can fold with little or no loss to folding/PPD? This cable will just plug into the front of the card right? Then Ill order them tomorrow morning.

No loss at all except that they are a little short in length.

They will mostly likely work fit my rig, still better then paying $67 per cable.

EDIT: will these effect the oc of the card?

Yup just long enough to get the cards up off the board and allow some proper spacing for them. They shouldn't affect overclocking as well. You might be interested in some of these adapters as well since psu's never have enough of them. I use them in my gpu farm and are way better then the crappy molex adapters.

I was going to use the molex adapter that comes with the card but this would be better. The psu comes with 4 single 6-pin connectors. Thats just enough for just 2 cards. So ill pick up a few of these for better cable management.

This is probably a odd question, but what if they are too short? Can i use two cables and connect them together to make a longer cable?

Didn't have time to read all the posts, but don't count in mail in rebates!! You're only allowed one per person and one per address.

I most likely missed something, but didn't you say you were buying a bunch of cards for a farm?

I ended up going with an i7-970, with 4 x 460s, I already had one, so i bought 2 from newegg, and one from microcenter. The ones from newegg have rebates, 2 per person.
