I tell ya I have it and I LOVE IT! I wrote a 12 page article on vietnam war in an hour flat LOL
Looks like you and I are in the same boat; I'm in desperate need of a CPU. I was going to go for an i3, but I have thought about it, deciding on an i5, hopefully a 2500k or 2570k.
anyone got a PSU for sale? something in the 500-600w range would suffice. Just need to power a corei5 2400 and a 7770.
I have a somewhat older Antec 550w if you need it.
I have a new corsair cx600 I would be willing to sell or trade but your in canada so shipping is eh.
Norton and I are working something out
Well our own [Ion] hooked me up with Dragon Naturally Speaking 10. Unfortunately it will not run on a Windows 64 bit OS
I guess it needs to be a version 11.5 or above.
Thanks Kai for the awesome try though my friend.
Will look soon to see what I can find...
I just put together a new PC with a HD7850. Been crunching for years, but this is my first try at CPU crunching. How many WU's can I reasonably expect to run at once on my card? Thanks!
6-8 wu's should do fine on a 7850
Sorry, I forgot who told me this, recently I was told to upgrade to 7.0.64. I had asked about GPU WU and BOINC and Intel Open CL...
Well, doing nothing other than running the newer BOINC, my event viewer (now) says it is searching for Intel GPU work!!
So, I guess I can just sit back and wait for it. Rather than bug you all with stupid questions about MY laptop that I should know more about but am too giddy and lazy and busy to bother with!!
Anyways, Thanks. (Also, I kinda wanted to revive this thread)
It will keep searching even though there is no more GPU work units available. I would go into settings and un-check the GPU work for now.
If it is searching for them, I don't really mind. What does ONE second really add up to in Boinc points?
Just picked up the mITX z77 motherboard from the awesome Theonedub so I am looking for a decent crunching 1155 chip to install to get it crunching as soon as I can!
Would like something with Hyperthreading to add them threads as well. 2600K or a 3770K would be soooooooo ideal but sure open to others.
Of course being unemployed I am going to have to sell some things to afford it LOLOL
Well, my LGA1155 CPUs are unfortunately all in use or will be again shortly, but I wish you the best of luck finding another crunching CPU!
I am going to have a 1055t or 970 BE in about a week extra. You can cut the pins off of it and pop it right in. .
Seriously though if I had a intel chip I would send it right to you man.
Use a bench grinder
+1 on the second part
Does anyone have a Windows 7 Pro key laying around that they wouldn't mind donating? Let me know, thank you.
ThE_MaD_ShOt has me taken care of. Thanks a lot
Had an extra one but since I also have an unused copy of win 8 I don't need it
Does anyone have a spare intel t8100 or t8300 cpu lying around. I am trying to upgrade a friends computer who also crunches on 1 core but he has a slow processor, Pentium class.
I have a T8100 here somewhere- drop me a PM if interested
