    Having to resurrect an old thread ... woke up this morning to find one of my Folding PCs was off, with no signs of being able to restart :sigh:
    Have you ever smelt the slight oder of over-warm PCB? Well, I took both GTX 1070's out, and popped in a GTX 970 - everything worked fine ...
    So, I put one 1070 back on its own - all fine. Put the second one in on its own and ... saw a small spark inside the card :eyebrow:
    Its been Folding 24/7 since October 2017 - and looks like it has stepped down to be replaced by an RTX 3000 card - shame I still can't find any suitably priced ones :wallbash:

    Definitely out of warranty then?!

    Like you, still can't find a RTX 3000 at a reasonable price. BTW, since the issue with some servers not crediting wu's some months ago but now seem to be working, my daily average has dropped by approx. 700k. Have you had similar issues? Has the credit given per wu dropped or have I a build up of dust or cooling issue etc?

    I had a massive points spike on the 16th August (which I put down to the system catching up with credits) but, other than that, I've not seen any noticeable drop.
    There are often tweaks to the credits, but they are project specific.
