Yeah the recent WUs have been killing PPD. The second 3090 should be in Thursday. So I'll have it in the rig and fired up for the weekend. I have been lucky enough to get cards when the stock drops so only MSRP for me. Now I just need the blocks to hurry up. Wonder how they will do with pretty much no space between them. going to temporarily strap an extra fan to the side and blow on the fins for a little extra cooling.

Maybe a pci-e extender cable from Amazon and do a getto rig job till you can get some better spacing.Prob cool better than a rigged up fan.

I'm not too worried about temps. There should still be a slight space between them since it's not a full 3 slot card and my ambient temps are pretty low in my basement. 70% fan speed never gets above 50c folding.

Looks like @notteytoday should take the overall lead in about a month... (y)

Thanks to you! When you're wide open, I can't even begin to compete lol, I'm the tortoise in this race. Though with this crazy winter weather, my lady is starting to see the advantages of my folding room, 75°F no matter what.

Same here... warmest room in the house, even with two windows cracked open during this deep freeze!

So I'm going to attempt to get my hands on a 3060, will this driver limit on mining performance hurt folding?

That is a good question. I hope not. It said related to specific mining algorithms. I don't know how closely folding mirrors mining calculations. I would personally not risk it.

With gfx card prices the way they are, I figure it's worth the risk since I could always get my money back selling it locally. Perhaps I'll be the guinea pig for the folding community here :)
