but the 4x system that is slowly getting upgraded is not watercooled. The stock Titan V cooler is a 2-slot blower cooler. 

Ah, Slap forehead.

I think your Titan V cards maybe generating 1M per card on Brp7 tasks. If that is true they become the "new" sweet spot in performance/price that the rtx 3080ti's have been for so long.

I am seeing used Titan V cards for maybe$500 USD from.  Ian&SteveC has demonstrated you can run 4 on an Epycd8 MB.  I have everything but the Titan V cards for that now.

Does it make sense to liquidate my 5 rtx 3080 ti investment and buy 4 Titan V cards?  Clearly there is no chance of being #1 but it would give me the lowest operational cost available for a 4 gpu system combined with the most flexibility in projects (eg. GpuGrid) and make for a reliable/competitive system?

I think that depends on a few things...are you going to be running Einstein gpu tasks for the foreseeable future, 2nd if Einsten doesn't have gpu tasks for whatever reason will they do as well on your backup project and 3rd when it comes time to liquidate the Titan V gpu's would you get as much for them as you hope to get from your 3080Ti cards or are you going from 5 gpu's to 4 gpu's AND losing resale value in the process. Yes the 3080Ti's will drop in value over time but how much compared to the Titan V's?

Excellent questions,

Excellent questions, Mikey!

I don't have any excellent answers though :(

==edit===

I think the Titan V's work well on GpuGrid as well as Brp7/MeerKat.  So it is probable that I won't lose any performance on other projects.  Hopefully they work well on the e@h Gravity Wave gpu tasks too.

The problem with GPU grid tasks is they are sooo rare lately.

Today, after re-pasting one of my blower rtx 3080 ti's I noticed that they are not rattling at all.  Simply blowing noisily. Then I put my new-to-me Dell rtx 3080 ti on the same test bed.  And it is slightly quieter.  But not all that quiet.

It seems like the Evga rtx 3080 ti FTW3 is the quietest of the bunch.  Can't really test it since it is hiding inside the Super Micro dual cpu system.  Which has its own howling VRM cooling fan issues.

So exactly how noisy is the 4 x Titan V blower/air cooled system?  Ian&SteveC?

I am still looking at sidegrading from 4 rtx 3080 ti's (two blowers, 1 air cooled, 1 liquid cooled) to 4 Titan V's but if they are as noisy or nearly so as my currently blowers its "less inviting".

It's impossible for me to

It's impossible for me to convey how noisy they are in a way that would get you a satisfactory answer. sound is not only hard to quantify, but also highly subjective. I don't think they are that noisy, but they also aren't really in close proximity to me so i don't really think about it. I'm running them at 80% fan speed.

You could post a quick movie moving the camera at designated intervals away from the pc. ie 1 foot 2 feet, 3 feet etc. It's a decibel meter but it's an idea Tom can then replicate with his own camera and pc and compare them.  No they won't be like for like tests but it is what it is.

really not even worth doing.

really not even worth doing. differences in camera mic frequency response, volume, and ambient noise floor will make comparison impossible. plus it's all subjective anyway.

Tom's best option is to just buy one and see how loud it is at whatever fan speed maintains the temperatures he needs.

Simple solution  . . . .  ear
