I think that if you were to have all of the systems up and running, you expecting anywhere between 240-270k PPD right?

It also makes ebaying them one day to upgrade to 395s more difficult. I can see it now... For Sale: 19 water cooled GTX295s, never used for gaming.
The GTX295s have proven to be a bit tweaky en masse and I haven't found the cause/solution yet. I have one, sometimes two, GPUs per machine in EUE at any given time. That's one reason the rig has not hit its maximum potential yet. I don't believe its temperatures, the cards all run with fans at 100% and the temps sit at 72 degrees C or lower across the board. One machine seems to have a motherboard problem for instance -- one of the GPUs in any card I put in that slot will not function. I've changed power supply cabling as well. That particular half of any card I put in the slot doesn't work.
The heat output isn't *that* bad; it's like standing in front of a wall of low-wattage hair dryers. Or maybe 4 restroom hand-dryers... I'll shoot a little video of it tonight and post it somewhere because it *is* pretty loud.
No, I was not burning beta WUs yesterday so my PPD saw a huge jump.
