Have been curious about the 680's ever since they were introduced.
Nah they are too loud to run 24/7 atm since the machine lives in my sleeping room. I usually let them run about 10-14 hours depending on when I get up. I do plan on water cooling the GPU's and CPU in about 2 months. The CPU block and res are already on order .

When the 680's are running I started off getting mostly IIRC project 7426's which give me about 14.03k points per 7 hour WC and I usually get 2-3 done per day for about 28- 40k per day for the 2 GPU's on client 7.2.9. Haven't seen one of those project 7426's in about 3 days now. I've been thinking about trying out a different client but I'm hesitant to add or change anything unless I'm sure it will make a noticeable improvement in my PPD with the these cards.

PS. I do run the cards in SLI btw since this is my only machine, so its also my gaming machine (till I get around to building a dedicated folding box that is.)
