She's going to be a dedicated CPU folder so I think I'll slap my spare GT430 in there
now onto my rant.........Replaced an i7-950 with a 970 hex core......Oc'd to 3.9 and she is stable with high 20's on idle and high 50's on a 100% load temps wise. It finished my last 2684 on my Win7 OS yesterday morning and then I installed Ubuntu 11.4 to dual boot. It took forever trying to setup the F@H client as well as HFM.net (with the latter being a royal PITA). Finally had everything setup and HFM functioning as it's suppose to; picked up a 6901 off the back with the -bigbeta flag and somehow I managed to CTRL C and restart after changing the flag to -bigadv. The 6901 got to 8% and all of sudden it error'd out and replaced by a 2685, that error'd out also with an "UNSTABLE_MACHINE" reason
So now it's on a 2685 all day so I'm hoping it doesn't crap out again. I will post the logfiles later.
My question to you Linux experts:
1. If the OC is Win7 is stable, should I worry about stability in Linux?
2. I've seen some of post about RAM clocks, do I need to tweak this for Linux to work?
3. What Ubuntu version is stable, 10.10 or 11.04?
4. Is it -bigadv or -bigbeta flag
Seems that 11.04 has some bugs within it still as I've had 2 BSOD's yesterday while getting myself familiarized with the UI.
