  1. everything will be cooler in a case my friend…the case keeps a lot more (dust) from cloging cards in the future and also creates a wind tunnel effect…also down clocking mem is also going to dumb down your oc…believe it or not but your mem is at least half of a good oc…other then that nice vid man!

  2. it seems like you havent even attempted to keep pace with the financial world have you? the US is printing dollars like its going out of style, the Euro is pretty close to collapsing. at the present rate both the US dollar and the Euro will become worthless. Bitcoins are immune to currency manipulation by banks and governments. if the USD and Euro tank Bitcoins will become even more valuable. he actually IS creating real money. by the time you understand it, it will be too late for you to play.

  3. @philipthrasher
    Thanks for clearing this up. This has been frustrating me for a while, I couldn't seem to work out why the card closest to the cpu runs so hot. I'd been thinking that it was some kind of overhead, needing to process a display that doesn't exist.

  4. @BelgianLife It's interesting to me that you're willing to judge someone you don't know. I own my own house, I have a great job, and this is a side hobby that makes enough money to cover the power bill. There are people who have made 6 figures with this.

    You seem like the kind of person with lots of anger, a miserable life, and likely (different from me) not much money. Why don't you spend some time improving yourself instead of tearing others down. You're not very good at it.

  5. @thedevo01 You would be surprised to learn it, but the Tesla under performs. nVidia cards use a different architecture that makes vector math require more flops. ATI uses a totally different style of GPU, effectively several dozen math co-processors, that excels at doing many billions of small calculations. A Tesla only gets about 50MH/s. Compare that to the 5850's 350MH/s. Yet, the Tesla costs more than a grand, go fig.
