Yup, no problem with linking to a B/S/T.
As I mentioned in the club thread awhile back my c2d systems cpu kinda had a complication and killed the system. I am sure the motherboard is dead but I don't know about the cpu. I don't have a spare motherboard to test the cpu either.
I would be willing to mail the c2d 6300 to a trusted cruncher and pay shipping both ways. All I would ask is that you test it out and see if its dead. If its not dead I would not mind you using it yourself to crunch for a few months till you send it back.
Does anyone have an io shield for a Gigabyte ga-990fxa-ud5? I had the mobo given to me and I bought an FX-8320 for it. All I'm missing is the io shield.
Hey fellow crunchers!
I'm in a financial bind right now and could really use a computer upgrade. I have a decent motherboard but my processor and ram are severely lacking. I'm looking for a decent upgrade to my 3800+ AM2 and my 1GB of ram. I only have 2 memory slots so I need at least a 1GB stick for an upgrade. I might be able to come up with some cash so just shoot me a PM.
What's your WCG-TPU user name? This thread is for assisting established crunchers maintain their rigs with parts donated by fellow team members.
If you are on the team and actively crunching we will try to help ..... otherwise, please take your request to the BST section
Sorry, as much as we all help each other, I do not have an I/O shield for you. Perhaps you have a local, non corporate, PC shop to check out? I/O shields, in my opinion, are not often laying around as spares. You know, it's being used or is sold with the board.
Anyways, good luck.
Does anyone have an extra LGA 775 mobo sitting around? Got a friend with next to no budget I'm trying to move up from his 11 year old P4 system. I have a few C2D cpus and some DDR2 RAM sitting around. Have an okay GPU and PSU too, just need a mobo to really get it started.
Gosh Ed, the only thing I have is a full BTX board. I don't imagine you have the proper case or cooler for that. :-(
If someone has a CPU that will work for this board, dual core at least, it'll help.
Can you edit your post to remove cost references, etc? We can't use this thread as a B/S/T alternate (items need to be 100% free to list them here)
You can announce items that are elligible for a cruncher's discount here as long as they are in your FS thread and costs are not discussed in this thread.
I can not seem to edit nor delete it, so I reported it so that it will get deleted. I will add the items to the FS thread and re-announce the crunchers discount here later this night.
I wish I could help you with that, but your board only supports K8 Athlons, so the Phenom X3 8550 I have won't work.
Crunchers get discount on this DDR2-1066 RAM and E8400 CPU OCZ Platinum DDR2-1066 RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU
Anybody have some spare S1366 coolers laying around?
Anyone else having issues getting work units? My rig has 4 left! I have the buffer set to 3 days so I should have a ton of them. It hasn't downloaded any in several days now.
No issues with FAAH. What projects are you running?
I am running all of them. Just found in my buffer that the minimum was set to .01 day(s)! I have no idea how that got changed from 2 days.
Needless to say, all is good now LOL.
Trying to track down a pair of LGA771 Xeons. Board is only compatible with 1333MHz FSB ones. Been trying to nab a E5450 or E5440 pair on ebay for under $50-60.
If anyone has an idea of where I could acquire things of this nature on the cheap, I'd be rather interested.
Also could use some assistance naming my new rig. All I've come up with so far is "lilcrunchy" or maybe "capncrunch".
How about two Intel Xeon E5345 2.33GHz (SLAC5) chips? LMK if those would work for you.
I was hoping to make a better server than the one my boss bought (for less), which is also a dual E5345. I stuck a bid in on a X5460 pair, which I'll know if I win in about an hour. (I hope I don't because I'm not sure the VRMs can take it). If I don't, I think I might go for it. Will let you know though.
Also, any insight on how much impact the 8MB L2 will have over Harpertown's 12MB L2?
Hmm, is there an issue with Boinc? I can't seem to upload the finished WU's. I have a boat load that are "ready to report" but none of them will upload.
There was a planned shutdown scheduled for today- check the WCG forum for details (I post a link if I can get to it)
Oh cool, at least it isn't something on my end.
Here it is:
"No work sent or received from 16:00 to 20:00 UTC" we should be back to normal in about an hour or so
EDIT- should be working now according to the last post(s) in that thread!
Yep, just checked and they uploaded fine now..
