My System Specs


You're lucky. I got up to 2 Core I7 and one AMD Phenom II 965BE and the breaker went when Core I7 #3 was being added. Had to run power from the hot water heater :)

I did have 4 or 5 on one circuit before when I was only using Core2Quad's but I7 seems to use a wee bit more power

Darn unfinished basements

It's a 15A breaker, with 5x boxes going 24/7, and have my TV/Amp/Cable box in the same breaker.. my lights are on a separate breaker, so at least when the plugs go, I still have light to get at the fuse panel.

So no folding farm expansion today.. not til I get the cat6 ran upstairs this spring. I have two GPUs folding though, which isn't bad - a GTX 280 and 275.

Anyone else run into this problem, or is it just me?

My System Specs



I put the two folding rigs in the garage, for a few reasons. I heat the garage in the winter with a space heater, seems fairly obvious to put them there. I can also upgrade the fans to larger deltas = better cooling, and the GX2's are pretty loud. Plus the entire power problem I've been having.

The two rigs are:
(1) i7 860 @ 3.5Ghz, w/ Asus P7P55D Pro, 8 gig Gskill 1600 Ripjaws. EVGA GTX 280 + EVGA 9800 GX2 (another GX2 on the way) - APC BackUPS XS 1300
(2) AMD Phenom 9950 BE @2.6Ghz (stock) 4 gig Gskill 1066. EVGA GTX260 SC Edition. - APC 1000VA UPS


I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.

Looks good. I wish I had a garage to put my rigs in...the heat is something, and will really be something this summer.
