I downloaded afterburner and adjusted the fan settings, but left power consumption the same. It has been 6/7 hours now and no coil whine.

Thank you for the tip.

Hello Everyone,

Just built a new computer with a MSI 1660 Super and after doing some quick research online I believe my GPU has coil whine. It is a very high pitched noise coming from the GPU, it stops instantly if I halt the project in boinc using the GPU. Sometimes the GPU will be fine under 95% load, and others the whine will start up at 40% load. I am using Open Hardware Monitor.

From what I can find online there does not seem to be much I can do other than reach out to the manufacturer about a possible replacement. Has anyone experienced coil whine and or have any tips?

Thanks,

Do you feel that running the CPU at 85C for extended periods is okay? Would you suggest I try to lover those temps with additional case fans or aftermarket CPU cooler?

Hello Everyone,

Just finished a new pc build and installed BOINC to start running Rosetta@Home. I wanted to check the cpu and gpu temps so I installed Open Hardware Monitor.

BOINC 7.16.5 on WIndows 10
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 AF using the stock cooler.
Nividia 1660 super

While running Rosetta on 100% of the CPUs I was getting temps around 86 C. Looking at AMD it states the cpu's max temp is 95 C but just about everything I have read on various forums suggest that 86 C is pretty high. I then then ran Einstein@Home on 100% of the CPUs and the max temperature is 65 C. Watching the open hardware monitor software while BOINC is running shows that for both projects the CPUs are running at 100%. The GPU under Einstein does run warmer than Rosetta, I guess I am just surprised that while both run the CPU at 100%, there can be a 20 C difference in temperature. Anyone have any thoughts on the large temperature difference?

Thanks,
jrich

Hello everyone,

I am planning on building my first PC soon that will be used for gaming, everyday use and running BOINC. My plan is to buy a gtx 1660 super with the intent on upgrading later if I need it. The 1660 will be running boinc projects full time when I am not gaming. If and when I upgrade, I would like to keep the 1660 super as a dedicated gpu that runs boinc. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions on running two gpus? Would it be wise to buy a power supply unit now with the extra wattage to cover powering both gpus in the future? Since I plan on running the gpus full time would it be worth spending the extra money upfront to get an 80+ gold power supply vs just an 80+?

Does anyone have any suggestions on Nvidia vs AMD gpus for running boinc projects?

Thanks,
jrich
