    Well, this is just "internet pie". All of us run the World Community Grid software on our computers, doing scientific research. The "pie" is handed out to the ten members who get the most points (again, entirely virtual things assigned as "compensation" for our work) that day.

    Join our team and get started crunching and maybe you'll get pie! Take a look at Ion's WCG Essentials Thread in my signature!

    My pie comes from:
    1x i7 2600
    3x i3 2100
    1x 2.66GHz Core 2 Quad
    1x i7 3770k
    1x i7 3612QM
    1x i7 3537U
    1x i7 3930k (part-time)

    If you have a six-core i7 @ 4GHz+ running Linux and doing nothing but WCG I suppose that you could get "bottom-tier pie" but it really does require a lot of systems to be at the top of the stack ;)

    Looks like i have no way to get pie,because it will be to much power consuming and later on bill consuming when i leave PC on for enternity.

    I crunch on 4 laptops

    1x i7-i3720qm (es unlocked) overclocked to 4.1
    2x i7-2670qm at 2.5
    1x i7-920xm overclocked to 3.2

    Put I dont have most of them on 24/7 since I am running a stock market simulation program.

    Just running one i7 like that will still put you in the upper range of our team and won't cost all that much--yes, it's not the most efficient i7, but it shouldn't be too bad to run.

    Your choice--if you want to help us out it would certainly be appreciated, but we obviously can't make you join us ;)


    Wow. That's a remarkably high clocked i7....4.1ghz on a laptop! Is that 4.1GHz w/ all eight threads as well??

    Yep, this stuff tends to be expensive in that regard.
    I usually get some low-tier pie regularly, as long as I don't have to shut things down due to maintenance or some random stuff. I use two boxen for that. And ...that eats 33% of my monthly income due to power bills. But I am happy to spend all that in order to make this world a better place! :toast:

    Yea its on a alienware m18x r2 with a 1 pipe heatsink but I have a 3 pipe heatsink sitting at home waiting for me to install it. From reading on another laptop forum, the temp should drop about 10C. But I rarely run at that high, normal 24/7 clocks are 3.9. My temps at 3.9 are about 92C.
    But with the new heatsink, I will try for about 4.3-4.4, and yea on all 8 threads running. I will post a picture of it when I install the 3 pipe heatsink tomorrow.

    Laptop CPUs are different than desktop processors. They usually run hotter anyways, my processors doesnt started to throttle until 100C and shuts off at 105C. Besides its an Engineering Sample and I got it really cheap. If I clean out the heatsink, I am sure the temp will drop some 2-4 degrees. But I am running this laptop on a 1 pipe heatsink and not a double. I have a triple that is waiting at home.

    With such temps, my head would asplode from all the stress and panic. I mean, even when my GPU reaches 70°C I already start to panic, despite the fact its "normal" running temp is listed to be up to 99°C.

    yea I understand. If it was on thinner laptop the temps would be higher. But since this laptop is so thick, it has more room to dissipate the heat.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    My pie comes from:
    1x Phenom II x6 1090t clocked @ 3.6
    1x Phenom II x6 1055t clocked @ 3.5
    1x Phenom II x6 1055t clocked @ 3.2
    1x Phenom II x4 970BE clocked @ 3.5



    And yes it is addictive (but is a good way) and can get expensive. I have just received the final pieces to complete my next build today. I will be doing the build Sunday if I have the time. Log will be posted.:toast:

    I keep my laptop in the mid 80's when I crunch. Don't want to push it further, since I don't want to have to buy a new one.

    Those ~85°c is reached while it's undervolted though... And underclocked... :cry::cry:

    Good job again Justin--you're putting up fierce competition! Makes me want to fire up another i7....decisions, decisions, decisions...

    I get bottom tier pie probably about 40% of the time, and I have two i7 rigs crunching (check my system specs).

    I need all 7 of my rigs reporting to reach the top tier Pie and can typically stay somewhere in the middle with 4 rigs. Will be planning a few changes this Summer so I can get more ppd with less rigs/less power :)

    Getting more output from less power is always a great thing. Hence my transition away from C2Ds towards Sandy Bridge i3s and later.

    Good luck!

    I think we should go by cores not rigs when talking about such things. I typically have 8 cores running, and 4 intermittently. This can net me 8k if it was not intermittent. If I had 16 cores total I feel I could be near or have pie.
