Keep in mind power usage. As you keep adding production, the power bill goes up and ya end up paying for a new card each month in electricity. I upgraded my 980Ti card I use in TC to a 1080. Production went up while power usage went down. I run only Pascal cards and a single RX 580 on BOINC. A 1070 is about the same production as a 980Ti as a reference.

While power usage is certainly a concern to an extent, I'll still only have around three cards running at any given time. I can absorb that! I'm more concerned about the heat output, though I suppose that's more or less analogous. So perhaps the 1070 should be what I watch for, could even wait a bit to see if Navi could drive the prices down a hair. I'm in no particular hurry, everything going in this computer is used anyway.

From a value proposition I think the 980ti is pretty good, I've seen them go for as low as $150 or so on eBay if you don't care too much about the specific model. This would go in a Rosewill 4u server case though, and ideally I'd like to keep it closed and have up to three cards running at once. I suppose I could downclock them a bit for 24/7 usage?

Would running a couple used 1070s/1070ti's be a bit safer? I doubt there are many used 1660ti's out there yet, but this is the performance level I'd like to shoot for if possible. Anything less doesn't seem worthwhile to have multiple cards, anything more gets expensive very quickly.

If someone on OCN was selling a pair of 'whatever' with waterblocks I could maybe get talked into going that route as well, if the price was right.

Thoughts?
All of my folding cards (with the exception of my RX 480) have been ebay purchases. My opinion is to get the best PPD per dollar within your budget. if you can get 1070/ti's, they are less likely to have been abused by the mining craze, and they will be a bit more power efficient. That being said, 980ti's are great overclockers.

Historically, the GPUs I have bought used have been primarily cards I was interested in having, despite the condition of the card. I.E. EVGA 1080 Classified, Gigabyte 1070 Mini, Asus 980ti Matrix, etc. So I suppose you could also use the collectors logic that I use to help justify the purchases

Thanks for the input! Honestly, I'm really trying hard to avoid the collector's mentality. I really want a Kingpin/Classified 980ti for some reason, but for the price I could probably almost score a 1070ti which would probably make more sense in the long run.

Absolutely! Sometimes you get lucky, and you can grab one of those collectable cards for cheap. I managed to snag my 1080 Classy for $225 right before the 2080 reviews dropped last year. Timing is everything lol

I second the 1070 Ti. I purchased a used MSI 980 Ti for around $300, which was a great deal at the time, and that's been running a daily use/folding rig of mine very nicely ever since. Runs really quietly, but can get a bit hot even with an aggressive fan curve.

I also snagged two 1070 Tis when they were on clearance, and those are probably one of my best bang-for-buck purchases. They've been netting me very, very nice PPD since.

What model do you have? Just curious if I should look for a 'blower' style cooler as they don't seem too common. For my Radeon VII I'm just leaving the side of the case off, but in the server that wouldn't really work all that well.

Edit: NVM, it appears there was a "Founders" version for this card. I'll just watch for those, then it'll be easy to watercool them in the future too, if that becomes a thing.

Edit the second: One on the way already. What have I done...

I have two 1080 founder edition in a Rosewill 4U case. Even with the blower fans pushing air out the back, it still gets a little toasty in there... I had to upgrade from the stock fans that came with the case because they just were not providing enough fresh air for 2 cards in a closed case.

Hah, nice to see you've already jumped on it.


For reference, I have two EVGA FTW cards, and they run a little toasty. The top one sits around 65 C at 90-100% fan speed.

That's what I'll be using as well. It's in an open four-post rack, so I might cut a few holes in the side to give them a bit of room to breathe. I think for one GPU I'll be fine without doing that, but maybe if I jump on another one next month I'll break it down for surgery. I have a Zotac 1050ti lying around doing nothing as well, so I suppose I can throw that in there just so I can get a reference for how hot it may run.

Thanks for the reference!

Edit: Second 1070ti on the way. Next weekend should be fun. Looks like the Rosewill 4U wouldn't be able to handle three cards given the motherboard configuration, contemplating just getting a cheapish full tower to move everything into.
