If you're running older GPUs (Keplers and Tahiti's) it is definitely worth considering replacing them Pascal GPUs.

A GTX 1070 appears to be close to 8x as fast as a 660ti on POEM and uses the same amount of power. Do the math and see if the power savings over a reasonable payback period make it worth the cost.

You can always put the Tahiti's in a cabinet that says "In Case of Milkyway Challenge Break Glass" but keep those heaters off until needed.

That's quite a list of gear for recycling Alez :shock:
Although you've still got a few cores left!

2 more GTX 980's on their way to the fleet. Guess a few more GPU's will be up on Ebay as the modernisation of the fleet continues.

3 x GTX980's now in the post to join the 2 x GTX 970's up and running. A few more older cards will be up for sale soon. Tech shed is a happier place than it's been for a while. Soon the fleet will be equiped with 970's, 980's and 7970's with the exception of Heimdal. Hopefully will be a profitable and less costly to run mix. Need to get the 750TI back up and running as well.
