05:27 * KathrynM is back (gone 05:49:53)

05:28 *** Delegate has joined #boinc

05:29 <Delegate> i'm just about to reinstall linux

05:29 <Delegate> i have about 10 work units lined up

05:29 <Delegate> is there any way i can move them across to my new install

05:29 <Delegate> or will the same units be automatically downloaded when i start boinc on the new install

05:29 <KathrynM> How is BOINC installed?

05:30 <Delegate> erm, i think i just did apt-get install boinc

05:30 <KathrynM> ewwwwww

05:30 <KathrynM> Depends on the project as to whether you'll get those units back.

05:31 <Delegate> the files are in /var/lib/boinc-client/

05:31 <Delegate> einstein@home is the project

05:31 <KathrynM> Einstein will resend if it thinks it's the same computer (you might have to merge the duplicates)

05:31 <KathrynM> oh in that case.

05:31 <Delegate> well

05:31 <Delegate> there's another part to this

05:31 <KathrynM> uh oh

05:31 <KathrynM> :)

05:31 <Delegate> i was hoping to move from 32-bit ubuntu to 64-bit debian

05:32 <Delegate> will that confuse it xD

05:32 <KathrynM> well.

05:32 <KathrynM> are you just running the stock E@H app?

05:32 <KathrynM> with that big of a change in OS, you'll probably not be able to merge the computers.

05:33 <Delegate> stock app?

05:33 <Delegate> as in am i using optimized versions or something?

05:33 <KathrynM> did you install the power users app or the 64 bit beta version?

05:33 *** frost has joined #boinc

05:33 <Delegate> i think it's the stock one in that case xD

05:34 <KathrynM> If it were me, I'd just abort the unstarted work and run the rest.

05:35 * CoderForLife runs for breakfast

05:35 <Delegate> i was just hoping i might be able to get crunching on the new install without too much downtime

05:35 <Delegate> recently it's been having trouble, reporting errors and getting my daily quota cut donw

05:35 <Delegate> down*

05:35 <KathrynM> oh

05:35 <KathrynM> what sort of errors?

05:35 <Delegate> Tue 25 Mar 2008 09:31:04 WST|Einstein@Home|Unrecoverable error for result h1_0814.40_S5R3__72_S5R3b_0 (process exited with code 112 (0x70))

05:38 <KathrynM> looking now

05:40 <KathrynM> wow.  only thread I see is from last year

05:40 <Delegate> i had a quick google but didn't find anything useful

05:40 <Delegate> i was just hoping a new install would fix the problem, if not i could look again

05:40 <KathrynM> If i were you, I'd dump all the work and start over

05:40 <KathrynM> it'll get reissued

05:40 <KathrynM> and if the problem doesn't go away, post over on the forums

05:41 <Delegate> okay, thanks for the help

05:41 <KathrynM> sorry I wasn't much help.

05:42 <Delegate> btw, you said ewww earlier when i said i used apt-get :x

05:42 <Delegate> you'd rather i compiled it?

05:42 <KathrynM> nah

05:42 <KathrynM> just use the package from Berkeley :)

05:42 <KathrynM> I installed using a beta version of an rpm

05:43 <KathrynM> But I was working pretty closely with the person developing it.  SO I knew where everything was going.

05:44 <Delegate> my last unit (out of the ones i had started) just finished + uploaded

05:44 <Delegate> i'm off to install debian

05:44 <KathrynM> good luck :)

05:44 <Delegate> thanks :>

06:13 <KathrynM> pizza is the cure for a long day at the rugrat factory

06:13 <KathrynM> especailly when you had to take 7 six year olds to the store

06:14 <CoderForLife> gee - I'd rather have an organ transplant

06:14 <KathrynM> so would I

17:25 <bryanUC> does the boinc client check the signature of the WU file only on d/l, or when boinc starts the WU as well?

17:25 <PovAddict> checks only on d/l, but you can make it check on WU start too

17:26 <PovAddict> I mean what you will modify?

17:27 <bryanUC> oh, the input file

17:27 <bryanUC> just change the #'s

18:21 <DerMeister> is it really that bad? ^^

18:22 <PovAddict> well

18:22 <PovAddict> what I'd usually do is abandon the project and go work on somethng else (that's why I have two dozen "abandoned projects" on my computer)

18:22 <PovAddict> :P

18:22 <Tank_Master> it would be easier if it was rated R

18:22 <PovAddict> can't do this here

18:23 <DerMeister> hehe... I know what you mean... It's the same here with me. Glad that porting th pg apps to linux was easy and didn't take much time :)

18:26 <ilovegizmos> can someone help me out with making a windows installer?  i'm trying to run UC2 on a client windows comp

18:26 <Romulus> was looking at a geometric rate.

18:26 <PovAddict> UC2?

18:27 <PovAddict> uppercase2 sample app?

18:27 <ilovegizmos> yep

18:27 <PovAddict> a windows "installer"??

18:27 <ilovegizmos> that's what the BOINC site said

18:27 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

18:27 <ilovegizmos> it said I had to make a installer catered to a specific project

18:28 <PovAddict> well you probably misread it

18:28 <PovAddict> stuff isn't "installed"

18:28 <PovAddict> boinc will just download your .exe and run it, no "installation"

18:29 <ilovegizmos> well crap

18:30 <ilovegizmos> OK how does one make the .exe then?

18:30 <Tank_Master> compile it

18:30 <ilovegizmos> compile UC2 on the server?  i got errors with it

18:31 <PovAddict> well, unless you have a cross-compiler, no, you can't compile on the server itself

18:31 <PovAddict> you need to compile for Windows...

18:31 <yoyo[RKN]> the exe must be compiled on a windows system

18:32 <yoyo[RKN]> but the linux version can be compiled on the server

18:32 <yoyo[RKN]> assumed the server runs on Linux

18:33 <ilovegizmos> so how can a linux server run a windows grid?  it seemed oh-so simple

18:33 *** chup has quit IRC

18:33 <PovAddict> you need to compile your app for Windows

18:33 <PovAddict> then copy it over to the server, and have the server distribute it to the clients

18:33 <ilovegizmos> ahhh so

18:34 *** chup has joined #boinc

18:34 <ilovegizmos> does the windows computer need to have the boinc server installed or does it just need a compiler like Visual Studio?

18:35 <PovAddict> just the compiler

18:35 <PovAddict> (the server doesn't run on Windows, actually)

18:35 <ilovegizmos> oh ok

18:35 <Tank_Master> the BOINC developers refuse to develop for antything that isnt open sorce

18:35 <PovAddict> huh?

18:35 <Tank_Master> so ther eis no windows server

18:35 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

18:35 <ilovegizmos> it should compile with Visual Studio right? cause it's in C?

18:35 <PovAddict> yes

18:35 <Tank_Master> there is*

18:35 <Tank_Master> yes

18:36 <Romulus> cant rename output file

18:36 *** NudgeyNR has quit IRC

18:36 <PovAddict> in fact it's a bit of a pain to compile on Windows using gcc (although that's what I do, I don't have visual studio)

18:36 <Tank_Master> &stfu

18:36 <Romulus> You can't turn markov up! You'll just have to live with it...

18:36 <ilovegizmos> well if you want to can get vis studio for free

18:36 <ilovegizmos> there's a site that supplies it to college students

18:36 <Tank_Master> legal?

18:36 <ilovegizmos> yea

18:37 <Tank_Master> but thats only for the student of the coloage

18:37 <PovAddict> yeah I tried the free version

18:37 <Tank_Master> not to be distrubuted out

18:37 <ilovegizmos> yea

18:37 <PovAddict> uninstalled it an hour after installing, I couldn't manage to do anything with it

18:37 <Tank_Master> and generally your suposed to remove the software after the clas is over

18:37 <ilovegizmos> that's cause trial sucks

18:37 <PovAddict> then spent ages trying to cleanup the mess that the uninstaller didn't remove

18:38 <ilovegizmos> the site says you can keep the software as long as you want

18:38 <ilovegizmos> they're 'promoting software development'

18:38 <PovAddict> I didn't want it to keep it longer than that

18:38 <PovAddict> ;)

18:38 <ilovegizmos> they have an XBox 360 dev tool you can download too

18:38 * PovAddict doesn't own ANY game console

18:38 <Tank_Master> what version of VS is it?

18:38 <ilovegizmos> 2005

18:38 <Tank_Master> 2005 or 2008?

18:39 <Tank_Master> bah

18:39 <Tank_Master> old

18:39 <ilovegizmos> technically

18:39 <ilovegizmos> but it works

18:39 <Tank_Master> 2008 works better

18:40 <ilovegizmos> well yea but it's expensive and i don't program enough to justify the cost

18:41 <ilovegizmos> anyway, so i get the UC2 file from the site, compile in windows, move back to server, and then distribute to clients?

18:41 <PovAddict> yes

18:41 <ilovegizmos> ok cool

18:41 <PovAddict> although I have no idea how easy it is to "compile in windows" ;)

18:42 <ilovegizmos> meh

18:42 <ilovegizmos> i'll tell you it's generally not as easy as linus

18:42 <ilovegizmos> linux*

18:43 *** Saenger has quit IRC

19:09 <KathrynM> yup

19:09 <PovAddict> I compile on Windows with no problems...

19:09 <PovAddict> MinGW

19:10 <KathrynM> fair enough ;)

19:10 <PovAddict> setting up the MinGW environment was a bit of a pain though :)

19:10 <KathrynM> It's a good thing I'm a teacher not a programmer.

19:12 <Tank_Master> heh

19:26 <KathrynM> and why?

19:26 <Romulus> I guess and why is I awake? it's not even 8 am, KathrynM

19:27 <KathrynM> actually rommie, it's 0827

19:30 <zombie67> i use ps- -aux or ps -ef, depending on the OS

19:30 <zombie67> ps -aux

19:30 <Tank_Master> .. no, its 4:30

19:30 <KathrynM> well I need the PPID

19:30 <PovAddict> KathrynM: your current use of ps is already more advanced than I have done

19:30 <KathrynM> lol

19:30 <KathrynM> Bless Google!

19:30 <zombie67> ps -ef gives ppid

19:31 <KathrynM> meh

19:31 <zombie67> or, when all else fails, "man ps"

19:31 <KathrynM> I was just curious

19:31 <KathrynM> oh god I don't want to read the man page again

19:31 <KathrynM> I did that last night

19:31 <Tank_Master> LOL

19:31 <Tank_Master> its fun reading!

19:31 <KathrynM> more fun that reading student journals?

19:32 <Tank_Master> might have less germatical errors

19:32 <KathrynM> might?

19:32 <Tank_Master> well, some you never know

19:32 <KathrynM> I have one student who regularly makes me want to gouge my eyes out

19:33 <Tank_Master> LOL

19:33 <Tank_Master> I remember s firend of mine didnt use periods

19:34 <Tank_Master> a*

19:34 <KathrynM> heh, I have students that don't believe in capital letters.

19:34 <Tank_Master> nice

19:34 <KathrynM> Then there are the ones that start ever sentence with 'and'/

19:34 <Tank_Master> I ALWAYS USE CAPS!

19:34 <Romulus> I've been sleeping most of these boxes are being displayed on the website. how can I use that though. It's the same folder.

19:34 <KathrynM> :)

19:35 <KathrynM> so what's the difference between SN and Z?

19:35 <PovAddict> "'lol' is not an appropriate substitute for the period at the end of sentences."

19:35 <Tank_Master> SN has 2 letters...

19:35 <KathrynM> especially when the PPID is 1

19:36 <KathrynM> and why am I trying to figure this out this early in the morning?

19:36 <Tank_Master> cus you love it

19:36 <KathrynM> I'm a geek.

19:36 <Tank_Master> true dat

19:36 <KathrynM> I didn't used to be like this.

19:36 <Tank_Master> a geek chick at that

19:36 <KathrynM> I was normal before BOINC.

19:36 <Tank_Master> LOL

19:37 <KathrynM> ya know, blond and clueless

19:37 <Tank_Master> BOINC: it will change your life

19:37 <KathrynM> :D

19:37 <PovAddict> for good?

19:37 <Tank_Master> no

19:37 <Tank_Master> just change it

19:37 <KathrynM> change is neither inherently bad nor good

19:37 <KathrynM> it's just different

19:37 <KathrynM> it's what you do with the changes

19:38 <Tank_Master> its just a few sence shirt of a dollar

19:38 <Tank_Master> cents*

19:38 <Tank_Master> short*

19:38 <Tank_Master> damn I have been up to long

19:38 <KathrynM> Go to bed.

19:39 <KathrynM> Don't make me put on my mother hat

19:39 * Tank_Master hides KathrynM's mother hat in the guy's locker room, next to the restroom area

19:39 <KathrynM> ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

19:40 <Tank_Master> you want it, go get it ;)

19:40 <KathrynM> I'll buy a new one

19:40 <KathrynM> The old one was kinda beat up by the rug rats.

19:40 <Tank_Master> thatll cost you your kid

19:40 <KathrynM> I've got a few I'm willing to sacrifice.

19:40 <Tank_Master> LOL

19:41 <KathrynM> whoever named that one boy Bart hit the nail squarely on the head.

19:41 <Romulus> wow 4 of the two machines running Linux?

19:41 <KathrynM> rommie needs to learn how to count.

21:00 <zombie67> both would be appreciated.

21:01 <zombie67> he probably doesn't want to use it without the source, in case any issues pop up.

21:01 <MTughan> Yeah, makes sense.

21:01 <Romulus> no xcamel is not the package manager.

21:04 <PovAddict> crappy video

21:04 <MTughan> It's the calculator from Vista. And no modifications as I know.

21:47 <Soul_keeper> they got no power

21:48 <MTughan> And 120mm fans have more power than 80 or 92mm fans.

21:48 <Soul_keeper> yeah if you step it up to the 38mm thick ones

21:49 <Soul_keeper> but i can only fit the 25mm ones in my case, and all the 25mm ones i've seen seem to be made by the same two or so chinese companies and branded under 10-15 different names

21:57 <Soul_keeper> i think i'm gonna have to build/wrap my own motor

21:58 <MTughan> You know, 120mm fans at 1500rpm should move plenty of air... What are they on?

21:58 <MTughan> What component?

21:58 <Soul_keeper> 2 case 1 heatsink

21:59 <Soul_keeper>

21:59 <Romulus> <> (at

22:00 <MTughan> Hold on, DNS is being slow...

22:00 <PovAddict> what's that flammable thing right next to your computer? xD

22:00 <Soul_keeper>

22:00 <Romulus> <> (at

22:00 <Soul_keeper> :)

22:00 <zombie67> slight differences in fan design can make a HUGE difference in cfm.

22:01 <Soul_keeper> i'm starting to not like this case, it's like a new foreign car, all compact and hard to get to stuff

22:01 <MTughan> For the heatsink, I'm wondering if the connection between the CPU and the heatsink isn't good. You put thermal grease on?

22:02 <Soul_keeper> that heatsink is basically the best on the market, 63c is unacceptable, these fans aren't moving enough air

22:02 <MTughan> Because I've seen reviews of that cooler, and it's good.

22:02 <Soul_keeper> yeah AS5

22:02 <MTughan> Are you able to take the top off?

22:02 <Soul_keeper> yeah

22:02 <PovAddict> #geeks

22:03 <MTughan> Take it off, see if the temperature drops significantly. If so, it's the case fans. If not, it's the heatsink.

22:03 <Soul_keeper> no more than 3-4c

22:03 <MTughan> When you take the top off? Is that immediately, or did you leave it off for a while?

22:04 <MTughan> A 3-4C drop almost instantly is quite big... Like my CPU temperature dropping 20C within a few seconds if I take the battery out.

22:04 <Soul_keeper> dropped 2c here in about 4min

22:05 <MTughan> And stays there?

22:05 <Soul_keeper> yeah

22:05 <MTughan> So I'd suspect the connection between the CPU and the heatsink. You used thermal grease?

22:05 <Soul_keeper> i put my hand behind the heatsink and the airflow is pathetic

22:06 <Soul_keeper> i'm gonna hook up the 38mm fan with 2600rpm and see how low i can get these temps holding it there

22:06 <MTughan> It looks like there's another heatsink tower in front of the fan...

22:07 <MTughan> Did the fan come with the heatsink, or did you buy/have that one?

22:07 <Soul_keeper> yeah chipset heatsink

22:07 <Soul_keeper> bought them separate

22:08 <MTughan> So if there's not much airflow, I might suspect the fan can't pull in enough air (least unlikely), or that it is the fan after all (more likely).

22:08 <MTughan> BTW... How many SATA ports does that MB have? Looks like quite a few.

22:09 <Soul_keeper> well my 38mm wide fans would be fine

22:09 <Soul_keeper> but i can't fit them in my case without serious mods

22:09 *** frost has quit IRC

22:09 <zombie67> the cooling should be greater with all the panels ON.  It helps force the air flow over the components.  if it warmer with the panels on, then something is WRONG.

22:09 <Soul_keeper> and can't fit it on the cpu heatsink either for lack of space

22:09 <zombie67> maybe a fan is on backwards?

22:09 <Soul_keeper> nope

22:09 <zombie67> maybe there is a hole letting air out without going over the components?

22:10 <zombie67> sometimes there are holes on the side.

22:10 <zombie67> I tape over them

22:10 <MTughan> I was thinking that the case fans couldn't move the air through the case.

22:10 <Romulus> has that stopped PovAddict

22:10 <zombie67> could be they are just poor case fans.

22:10 <zombie67> I have seen great differences in case fan cfm

22:12 <zombie67> is the air being forced out the front drive bays?  if so, that is a problem.  it means it can't get out the back fast enough

22:13 <MTughan> I see two case fans. One in front, ahead of the expansion cards and slots, and one behind the CPU heatsink.

22:14 <Soul_keeper> yeah

22:14 <Soul_keeper> exhaust behind cpu

22:15 <Soul_keeper> the idea was for the intake to be sucked over everything

22:15 <zombie67> also, make sure the HS fins are going with the airflow, not perpendicular

22:15 <MTughan> Is there air coming out the back?

22:16 <Soul_keeper> yes everything is fine

22:16 <zombie67> air flow should go front to back, and bottom to top

22:16 <Soul_keeper> the fans are just weak

22:16 <zombie67> sound like it.

22:16 <zombie67> don't skimp on fans

22:16 <Soul_keeper> sub 1500 rpm's is worthless

22:16 <MTughan> But yeah, there's not a whole lot he can do without case mods it would seem...

22:16 <zombie67> if you order from newegg, i believe they list cfm

22:16 <MTughan> Looks like you can install a bigger fan in the front though.

22:17 <zombie67>

22:17 <Romulus> <> (at

22:17 <zombie67> is this the clear box?

22:18 <MTughan> Yes. He posted pictures...

22:18 <MTughan>

22:18 <Romulus> <> (at

22:18 <zombie67> ah.  so this is not a normal case

22:18 <MTughan> You have 16MB download now. You should be able to load those in a jiffy.

22:19 <Soul_keeper> just built it this weekend

22:19 <zombie67> yep

22:19 <MTughan> And I don't see CFM on the page you posted.

22:19 <MTughan> Nvm, I chose the one that didn't have it... :P

22:19 <zombie67> problem:  in and out fans are both at the top?

22:19 <Soul_keeper> i'll show you the fans i bought from newegg

22:19 <zombie67> SK, I see cfm on most of them

22:20 <Soul_keeper>   i purched 2 of these,   turns out the case also came with two of them just a different color  (so 4 of them now)

22:20 <zombie67> with both fans at the top, the components at the bottom get no cross-flow

22:21 <Romulus> <> (at

22:21 <zombie67> "Spinning at 1700RPM it moves 63.85CFM"

22:21 <Soul_keeper> the CFM is mostly lies at the manufacturer's discretion

22:21 <zombie67> maybe

22:21 <Soul_keeper> rpm's is what matters

22:21 <zombie67> not necessarily

22:21 <MTughan> 60-65 CFM according to the page.

22:21 <Soul_keeper> well another thing to consider is static pressure, which makes the cfm worthless

22:21 <zombie67> a fan an run slower, but still move more air.

22:22 <Soul_keeper> if you put a fan grill in front of those weak motor ones the cfm will probably cut in half

22:22 <zombie67> it depends on the shape of the blades

22:22 <MTughan> brb

22:22 <zombie67> but yeah, cfm claims are like laptop battery life claims.

22:22 <zombie67> not true, but useful as a means of comparison

22:24 <zombie67> check this one out:

22:24 <Romulus> <> (at

22:24 <zombie67> 110 cfm, 2400 rpm

22:24 <Soul_keeper>          i also have two of these

22:25 <Romulus> <> (at

22:25 <Soul_keeper>   and one of these

22:25 <Romulus> <> (at

22:25 <Soul_keeper> the last one is sufficiently powerfull (i have 2 similar ones i used to use to cool my radiator for water cooling)

22:25 <Soul_keeper> but it is 38mm thick and i can't fit it

22:26 <Soul_keeper> all the 25mm thick ones are weak  they are all the same

22:26 <zombie67> look at this:  25mm

22:26 <Romulus> <> (at

22:26 <zombie67> specs very similar to your 38mm

22:27 <Soul_keeper> it might be good, but i'm skeptical

22:27 <Soul_keeper> i suspect that all the 25mm fans on newegg have the exact same motor

22:27 <zombie67> ??

22:27 <zombie67> they are all different suppliers

22:27 <Soul_keeper> it don't say how many amps it pulls

22:28 <zombie67> 12 different suppliers.

22:28 <Soul_keeper> yeah but same manufacturer in most cases

22:28 <Romulus> that's what I thought you wouldn't be connected 24/7.

22:28 <zombie67> well, we know the fans you are using don't get the job done, right?  at $15 ea, that fan I listed is a cheap experiment

22:29 <Soul_keeper> i guess

22:29 <Soul_keeper> i doubt radioshack would sell a motor that would fit in 25mm and be powerfull enough ...

22:29 <zombie67>

22:29 <Romulus> <> (at

22:30 <zombie67> that is a list of the 20 120mm fans that have CFM >80

22:30 <Soul_keeper> i just noticed that silverstone has 9fins

22:30 <Soul_keeper> the ones i got have 7 fins

22:30 <zombie67> they look quite different from one another

22:30 <zombie67> number and shape of fins

22:30 <zombie67> type of bearing

22:30 <Soul_keeper> yeah i looked at everyone in that list 5min before i came in this room

22:31 <zombie67> ah

22:32 <Soul_keeper> i've taken appart over a dozen fans over the last year or two, and just took appart 3 earlier today i can take pictures if you like ...

22:33 <Soul_keeper> vantec used to be my favorite fan maker

22:33 <zombie67> i see the PSU is under the mobo.  where is it pulling in air from?

22:33 <Soul_keeper> the vantec tornadoes were the best, and likely still are

22:33 <Soul_keeper> nothing like pumping 90CFM or so thru an 80mm fan

22:33 <Soul_keeper> that's what i got used to ...

22:33 <Soul_keeper> sound like helicopters tho

22:34 <PovAddict> xD

22:34 <Soul_keeper> 110CFm thru the 90mm i believe

22:34 <zombie67> could it be that the air is entering the case from the front, and then getting sucked down to the psu, and then out the side, and missing going over the mobo and out the back?

22:35 <zombie67> the PSU fan may be over-sucking the rear fan

22:36 <MTughan> Very possible...

22:36 <Soul_keeper> lol  it was  119CFM for the 92MM tornado now that i look it up

22:36 <Soul_keeper> 4800RPM for the 92  and 5700RPM for the 80

22:37 <Soul_keeper> now those were fans that required speed controlls :)

22:37 <MTughan> lol, comment on the SilverStone fan posted here... "Makes my case sound like a JET when it's cranked up. You can hear the computer from 30' away, up a flight of stairs."

22:37 <MTughan> And his description of the air: "This baby moves more wind than an office full of people after a burrito luncheon."

22:38 <zombie67> hah!

22:38 <Soul_keeper> well you can't get airflow without creating noise, just plain and simple

22:38 <zombie67> well, air flow is not free. it comes with noise

22:38 <PovAddict> zomg rain?

22:38 <zombie67> jinx

22:38 <MTughan> Not with what we have now.

22:38 <Soul_keeper> :)

22:38 <MTughan> But they're just great descriptions.

22:38 <zombie67> SK, did you see my question about the PSU?

22:39 <Soul_keeper> yeah the bottom is basically cut off from the top

22:39 <MTughan> Plexiglass layer?

22:39 <zombie67> so where is the PSU pulling air from??

22:39 <Soul_keeper> so the psu and hard drives don't share airflow

22:39 <Soul_keeper> yeah

22:40 <Soul_keeper> 140mm exhaust fan in the psu, and i made an intake vent in front of one of my hard drives

22:40 <zombie67> which is blocked

22:40 <Soul_keeper> that intake vent causes that hard drive to run 5c cooler than the two above it

22:40 <Soul_keeper> it's blocked with an air filter

22:41 <zombie67> is it possible the PSU is pulling air flow out of the top section?

22:41 <Soul_keeper> i guess i gotta cut more holes in the case ...

22:41 <Soul_keeper> if so it shouldn't be enough to affect anything

22:41 <Soul_keeper> it would just be pulling air off the bottom of the motherboard if anything

22:41 <zombie67> well, I am outta ideas, other than:  get better fans

22:42 <Soul_keeper> hmmm i just noticed the psu sits nearly directly under the cpu

22:42 <Soul_keeper> could be generating heat onto the back of the socket

22:42 <zombie67> yeah, that is generally why the PSU is over the mobo

22:42 <zombie67> not under

22:42 <zombie67> heat rises

22:42 <PovAddict> heat doesn't move to any particular direction

22:43 <PovAddict> hot *air* moves up

22:43 <PovAddict> </nitpick>

22:43 <zombie67> also, it also looks like the pci cards are blocking the flow, front to back

22:43 <MTughan> True. Hot air rises, bringing the heat to the PSU. Effectively, the heat rises.

22:43 <zombie67> AAH!

22:43 <zombie67> got it!

22:43 <Soul_keeper>

22:43 <Romulus> <> (at

22:43 <Soul_keeper> them are my fans ...

22:44 <zombie67> air goes in the front, then sucked into the GPU fan, and then out the side.  It never makes it past the GPU

22:44 <MTughan> What side?

22:44 <zombie67> left side.  you can see the vents here:

22:44 <Romulus> <> (at

22:44 <MTughan> Oh, I see...

22:45 <MTughan> I forgot it was a dual-slot vid card.

22:45 <MTughan> So how do you fix that? More air in the front?

22:45 <Soul_keeper> yeah the card exhausts air

22:46 <zombie67> the air flow really needs to be going side to side in this case

22:46 <zombie67> from the right to the left

22:46 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: Did you cut the holes for the fans in the front and back, or were they already there?

22:47 <zombie67> i am kicking butt at cels

22:47 <MTughan> No duh. You have more computers than the average person does.

22:48 <zombie67>

22:48 <Romulus> <> (at

22:48 <zombie67> but not more than all do!
