    I am sure everything survived, will await on a GPU to test each riser section to ensure all is well before I start using hot glue in places lol. I am surprised that I have not seen other builds like this, converting a mining rig type build into a [email protected] rig, or similar project. There probably are some and I have just not looked hard enough.

      No need to hot glue, put one long piece of velcro across the bottom, then smaller opposite pieces under each PCIe daughter board. then you can replace them easily or move them.

        Velcro was another idea I did have as it does make maintenance easier for sure. Might just go that route then now its its been suggested again lol

          So we have another update on the build as it enters phase 3.

          There was a moment where I wondered if I would get the second PSU in, I meant to take a picture but essentially where the USB riser cards were located on the motherboard, the PSU covers them. This in itself is no issue.....however the tops of the USB connect come ever so slightly proud over the PSU support tabs in the case. Fortunately I was able to shape the USB wired, or should I say bend them in a position whereby I could get the PSU into place.

          A further bonus to this was that that PSU actually pushes down ever so slightley onto the USB connectors/risers which will keep them in place, so no need for velcro or hot glue to anchor those down !

          Once all the relevant cables were in place into the system PSU (EVGA) the Team Group Tforce SSD was installed into place somewhere accessible for any future maintenance.

          Lastly the only thing to do was to ensure that all the PCIe risers were functioning correctly and communicating with the motherboard. Fotunately all was well, you will see from the images that I used a trusty old Quadro card I had in my posession. As the tolerances on the riser cards with respects to the screw holes was a little on the looser side, I noticed that when installing the GPU that the fixing bracket did not line up with the case screw hole. So I went back and put the GPU into each slot, undid the fixing screws and moved the risers forward using the card until the holes lined up and then resecured the risers, Glad I noticed before installing the real GPU's.

                  Here's a WU running on a GPU that is more than 2x as powerful as the 1070 I tested before.

                  OS: Arch Linux
                  Kernel: 5.6.14
                  Driver: 440.82
                  GPU: RTX 2080 Super

                  p13406 (core_22)
                  PCIe 3.0 x16: TPF - 01:09 | ppd - 2,512,601 || PCIe Utilization - 18% | GPU Utilization - 97% | GPU Power - 220W | Clocks - 1935core|7500mem
                  PCIe 3.0 x4: TPF - 01:12 | ppd - 2,357,211 || PCIe Utilization - 34% | GPU Utilization - 95% | GPU Power - 217W | Clocks - 1935core|7500mem
                  PCIe 3.0 x1: TPF - 01:28 | ppd - 1,744,509 || PCIe Utilization - 50% | GPU Utilization - 84% | GPU Power - 190W | Clocks - 1935core|7500mem
                  PCIe 2.0 x1: TPF - 01:50 | ppd - 1,248,271 || PCIe Utilization - 55% | GPU Utilization - 77% | GPU Power - 168W | Clocks - 1965core|7500mem

                  While I was testing this, I realized that the earlier numbers I reported with a 1070 are not accurate. I was using the x1 slot in my x399 board, and that slot is PCIe 2.0 x1.
                  That means that the performance at PCIe 3.0 x1 is going to be quite a bit better than what I posted before.

                    Nice thanks for the extra data. Will also amend my table, what was the PCIe version where you using for these number's ?

                    • Everything that I had previously tested at x1, was at PCIe 2.0 x1.

                        Ok great, I just wanted to check what your recent results were running on whether it was PCIe 2.0 or 3.0, just so the table shows the correct inf, but upon closure inspection, you clearly indicated that lol. Great data by the way, great insight into the PCIe bandwidth factors.

                        • Good News !

                          The GTX 1070 has arrived, oh and it is a posh EVGA Superclocked version ! This will get tested in the CFP but will actually fold in another system for the Folding Comp. Reason is two fold for this. A. I need to get the Linux OS sorted on the CFP machine and B. Space where I am is super premium right now (still have not moved to our house) so setting up the CFP to fold on one GPU when my already running machine can handle that, seems a little silly. However I am going to purchase another one of the EVGA Superclocked 1070's and hopefully all the way up to 6 (I like matching cards...it is an OCD thing lol).

                          So quick question, who wants to link me to an easy to use Linux Distro for the CFP ?

                          Once again a huge thanks to our very generous donor of the GTX 1070 !

                          • Nice!
                            Will the CFP have it's own name on the team? (not sure if that was answered already)
                            Pretty sure that running 6 identical cards will be a lot easier with drivers and software, so I'd go that route too

                              Are you running the CFP headless or will it be connected to a monitor? I use ubuntu and can forward you all my notes on setting up 18.04, but my rigs are connected to a monitor so I havent done a headless setup yet.

                                As far as that setup process goes, what difference does it make if the system is headless?
