If you are folding 24/7 I would go with the ASUS Strix or MSI Gaming just because of the total heatsink coverage. Under load either will sit at 70c all day long.

Braegnok, I'm not real fond of reference coolers 'running one now on the 6970 doesn't  seem like it cools as well as it could.Really like the temps on  hybrid ones.Both the pc's in house use corsairs (aio) units and I can overclock the snot out of the cpu's, when I feel like it.While staying relatively cool. (4GHZ on e5200,5GHZ on 3820)

 

ir_cow,  That Asus Strix is a serious contender would probably  have to take the HD cage out to install though.

 

Still not sure which one I'll pull the trigger on.Still researching the good and bad on a lot of them to narrow it down further .Temp power draw and price are the main concerns at the moment.

Well for the record I just fired my folding back up too...
At least part-time anyway for now and boy have things changed I don't remember it like this it's been a few years...
For now I'm taking the easy Road and letting the software do the work... maybe later on I'll get into some hot and heavy folding for now just cruising

The banners can be found at EOC stats here https://folding.extr...com/?nav=IMAGES

 

For the icon you will have to PM Bosco/Dave or one of the admins can add it...

We have our own banners too. https://www.overcloc.../pages/folding/

 

 

Although I cannot seem to get any of them to work, it keeps taking me to some reCaptcha verification page. Then it says "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."

 

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong but I cannot get the image thingy to work on my end. Same thing If I try to post it in this post, takes me to a reCaptcha verification page, then I get this.

-Edit- the only way I could get it to work was by going to the link from the url then saving the picture to my pc, then uploading the picture to imgur, then copy and pasting the link here. But that does no good.

Seems like I went through that also after the forum was upgraded a few times it doesnt allow codes you got to use a image insert it.

 

Try this one
