I think we can all agree that the GF100 chip certainly runs hot, some people have actually reported their GTX 480 reaching temperatures of up to 100°C. This makes overclocking very difficult since there is next to no margin for heat increase.

MSI have decided to tackle the problem by replacing the air cooler with a water block.

From the leaked images we believe it to look like an aquacomputer water block however we can't guarantee anything and would love to hear your opinion.

We don't have any word on the pricing yet however with the EVGA Hydro Copper FTW selling for around £650, if MSI can match or even beat this price we think they will be onto a winner.

You can see the leaked images through the scroller to the right.

You can also discuss this at the Overclock3D forums.

You just gotta love Stanford's WU assignments and WU valuations :lol: 2 weeks ago I'm doing 300K PPD now they have it down to under 230K PPD all on the same equipment :rolleyes:




I noticed the same; I'm down to around 50K whereas I was able to get around 70K two weeks ago. I think the problem is the new SMP WU's I'm getting some that take 10 hours to complete now and you only get 2272 points... I'd rather have the 1 hour WU's that give you ~ 1000 :)

The annoying thing is all the GPU WUs are still getting their usual PPD, so all the GPU folders are storming on ahead and the guys with multiple SMP rigs running headless are feeling it hard.

I'm loving these large WU's on SMP, 17K points but the issue that i can't leave my rig on 24/7 so each night thr rig is off, until the WU is complete, im losing out on around 2500 points. Is there a way to make v7 to give smaller WU's instead of big ones?

Gpu is doing fine, 5757 point WU for 8 hours

Slot options > 'max-packet-size' : 'small'

Just done this for my SMP client. Out of curiosity, if I was to get rid of the SMP slot, and re add the small wu flag thing, would I get a small WU instantly? Or does it need to get a fresh WU from the servers @ stanford?
