    Anyone have a Sandybridge or Ivybridge chip they would allow me to test a B75 motherboard I just picked up? I am hoping to test an I3 or celeron (No I5/I7) since it is going to replace my 1156 cruncher.

    The build is

    CPU: ???
    MOBO: B75H2-AM (ECS but acer OEM Identical to the B75H2-M (1.0) but green PCB)
    RAM: 2x2GB DDR3
    GPU: AMD 7450 1GB

    Wondering if a person can create a virtual machine and run BOINC on that VM along with the host systems crunching?
    If so, is it worth it or does it cause issues crunching for the host machine?

    You probably could, but you'd have to split resources between the host and the VM.

    Does anyone have one or two cheap heatsinks compatible with 2011? 92mm size fan based HSFs are fine and possibly preferred. I can get a couple 120mm heatsinks on Newegg for $40 shipped total, an 92mm heatsinks for $47 shipped. Hoping for cheaper for something that may only be temporary.

    Hey guys

    Looking for the following for the giveaway rig for the upcoming challenge:

    - socket 1156 motherboard
    - power supply (decent 400w OR a decent 400w+ with 2x6pin PCIE connectors- I may have a nice gpu for it if I can get a decent psu to run it ;))
    - cpu cooler (92 or 120mm) compatible with socket 1156 (optional)
    *note- I have pledges on all/most of the other pieces for the build.

    Drop me a PM if you have any of the above items available to donate.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide! :toast:

    :banghead: Okay, just got a call from the wife. Her system, 1366 board, w3520 xeon, and 6 gigs of ram went "poof!"

    Just arrived at home, and sure enough, the frigging motherboard is fried. :cry:

    Going to check the chip and ram, but I think it is just the motherboard.

    Anyone have a spare socket 1366 board laying around? Can't really afford much, but I am willing to pay some for a working board that will support the Xeon processors.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have 4GB sticks but they are ECC and I am in the US. I have heard that some boards will use this ram.

    Yes these sticks would be killer in a board that allows for ECC. Just imagine 4x4GB sticks :)

    Okay, I am sure it has probably been discussed before, but will BOINC and WCG run on Windows Home Server 2011?

    Thanks Brandon. However it seems like Norton or someone else had issues running on Home Server. Can't remember if it was the original or 2011.

    Ah, I think it was T that was running one of them. Seems like it was the original Home Server.

    I suppose I can install 2011 and give it a shot before activating the OS LOL.
