    Put this system together last week.

    AMD FX-6300
    MSI 970A-G43
    8GB Gskill Ripjaws
    2x MSI R9 280x
    Running 3 tasks per card, getting about 400,000 ppd from each card daily. GPU time varies from 70-110 sec per task with very little cpu time 24sec or so.
    https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/results.php?hostid=723824&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=

    But goodness does the top card run hot! 80-85c with a side 140mm blowing on the cards, case is well ventilated. Makes a nice bedroom heater through this small cold snap. But I am betting I'll have to shut down for summer or smoke the cards. May try 1 task per card when the time gets here, just to see if I can keep it up. I'd like to hit 100 mil first.

    Twin 280X GPUs make for a beast of a M@H cruncher!

    I have gotten good deals off Ebay on the cards. Waching a few more, I blame Newegg for having the cpu combo cheap. LOL

    I have lots of AMD/ATI* cards that I could potentially post times for, if you feel like updating the OP with them. I posted some times here, but since they didn't make it to the OP, I thought this thread was pretty much over.

    *5870, 5970, 280x, 285, 290, and Fury.

    Huh? Who said it was over? :confused:
    No it's still going :), it's just that I haven't been on here for a while (partly because I've recently moved into a flat on the 2nd Feb), but also I just don't come on here as regularly as I once did. That said, I should've got some email notifications, but it appears I didn't (I did get 1 this eve) or the email got buried! :eek:.
    So apologies for not replying sooner, but this thread isn't dead :)
    I will update the op with your times, but I can't do it tonight or tomorrow, hopefully later in the week I can though.

    Before I shut down for summer, hope I don't have to. I am going to try a week of single tasks to see if the top cards will stay at a decent temp 70C's instead of the mid 80C's, so that will be a good time for me to get those run times. Weather temps have been crazy, last week was cold, today it's warm and time for shorts, after the storms tomorrow it will be cool again. Crazy.

    280X's max at 100C. Don't fret. Although at 98C they tend to lock the computer. ;)

    Haha, good to know. It's just no one is ever home during the day and I do set backs on my house thermostat, so it can get pretty warm in the house before the kick down around 5PM.
