It is still in the 90s here also. I only have the 3 systems running, then a laptop and a cheap old card that runs a task for 3-4 days and times some of them out before the 5 day report period. I try to keep an eye on that one to make sure it gets the shorter running tasks because there are a few batches that are really long running and I know it won't finish them. The one system has 3 980TI Classified cards in it and has done more than half the work completed for the project. The other 2 have 2 980 cards and only the one is consistently up without problems. The second is between problems on a regular basis (I am actually at it now trying to fix a windows update reboot loop it ran into overnight.) There is another (Skywalker)(lol) that is more in between repairs than it is up over the past 12 months. It has a 980 and a 980TI in it. I don't spend much time fixing them lately because of the cancers and chemotherapy that have me in bed most of the time, but I am looking at a surgery in the next few weeks to remove this current tumor and maybe I will be more back on the ball after that again. If I can get them all up and running without problems, I can see an avg of around 5,500,000 to 6,200,000 a day like I had back when they were all running well for that short time. Right now I am forcing 3,500,000 out of what I have and just got that up from 2,800,000 recently. I was actually looking to push 3.5T in credit by the 2017 new year, but I think I will be around 2.75T for the project.
As far as heat goes, the one is at my church running the sound booth. This is the one that is ran into the reboot loop AND WE HAVE A WEDDING TODAY! That is why I am here fixing it. The one that is up and running well needs to come here to run music into the halls and bathrooms, but there is a speaker pin broke off and stuck in the speaker jack, so I need to get that out. Windows seems to have a problem not seeing it and allowing a front side speaker plugged in unless that thing comes out. I got a USB sound card in case I cannot get that out. Apparently I get one try at it with a cut q-tip and super glue. I either get it out first try or it stays in glued there. :-( It stays in a room that nobody uses and the AC is cut off to that room. I keep the windows cracked just for the air release and the occasional breeze that might blow some of the air out, plus nighttime air is cooler. The third that has been down is supposed to be the new office PC for the church's asst pastor, but he is still using the 2003 server instead. It runs so slow and hot as it is actually in a 3 rack unit Supermicro server is a small non-air-conditioned room. The big guy, which I named Beastmode, before I ever heard of the poker player or the football player (which I heard through hearing about the poker player) is in my basement and I access it through TeamViewer constantly through my laptop in my room. It runs way to hot to keep in any room in the house, but the basement is open and cool. This is the only one that hasn't run into any problems except when I tried the Windows 10 upgrade and it is went into a reboot loop that it never recovered from. It is back on Windows 8.1 from a complete reinstall from scratch.
Between the computers, the central air, and the heated pool I had put in the back yard, our electric company loves us too to the tune of $800 a month some months and over $550 at all times. At least in the summer months the pool can be turned all the way to 50 degrees and never run the heater and stay 80 degrees, so that offsets the AC a bit. It is an Endless Pool I got to get some exercise to recover from the cancers (until I got these 2 recent ones and haven'[t had the energy to even go out there), but like I said, that should change with the surgery as long as the chemo I got works to stave away future tumors for a few years, which we are hoping it will. Last time I got any chemo, the cancer did not return for 2 years. The past 2 times it came back within a year, then another in 6 months.
I think the GTX 10 series cards will be cheaper, quieter, cooler running, and use less electricity than the 9 series and below unless you go Titan. If you are going to get an NVIDIA card, I recommend that series. Waiting for the heat to end is a good thing on that anyway if planning to run GPUGRID since the new app will not release that can run on these cards until NVIDIA releases the gold CUDA8 dev kit. The RC version they have had out now cannot be used for any public release apps. They have been using it to build the app, but until that day NVIDIA deems it gold, GPUGRID cannot run on these new cards. I am waiting on the 1080TI Classified which still has not even been talked about. There is not specs for it and no release date speculated for it. I am thinking Easter of 2017 minimum as the 980TI released about that far after the 980 and 9 Series Titan.
