I will try and sort some pics out for those who are interested.

For a folding box a Z800 would be a better choice because it has better support for multiple power hungry GPUS.

Had I have known how limited the PSU would be in the Z600 I would have waited a little longer and grabbed a Z800, but what's done is done and I seem to have got around the issue at least for now.

The problem is because the PSU is very bespoke for the case, its not really possible to replace it.

It's a very nice workstation if you don't want to mod it. If it really didn't matter looks wide, one could buy a second PSU just to power the GPUs and situate it outside the case.

With regards to the PCIE power cable. I found a nice braided cable that was only £1 more than the crappy one. So I bought it thinking it will make things nice and simple to install and would look good as well.

Well, it was a PCIE extension cable and idiot here cut the wrong end off, so I then spent the next hour or so soldiering the cable back together and then into the wires I had soldered into the underside of the PSU (for ease of access).

The result is fairly clean, but it would have been much nicer had I cut the correct end off the first time.

I'd be interested in seeing some pics

Due to the very hot weather, I've had to pause folding for the time being. I'll be restarting once it's cooled down a bit. My GPU's hitting 94 C and I'm not comfortable with that.

Yeah, I noticed that too. I hope everything is okay. We lose 1 million + points without him.

Hopefully he's just on vacation. Have to admit though, I'm somewhat worried about him lol, hope he's all right.

Activity usually slows down quite a bit in the summer due to heat and vacations so this is pretty normal. Tends to pick up again when the temps go down.

Hi guys!

I'm OK just was down for awhile because we moved. Finally got internet installed a few days ago. Got 3 machines up and running yesterday, not sure if I'll return to my former numbers though. I sure didn't miss all that fan noise....

Good to hear it was just a move. Did you move far or still in the same city/town?

I built a new rig to replace my old work rig (x99 ). Grabbed a 960 this time around, such an itty-bitty card.

Same town, just outside of the city limits on the golf course.
