Why not fold on it in place of the 8800GS?
He recently just built a new rig and he's gotten back into gaming, he got a nice TV and all and the 8800GTS that I had gave him was having issues keeping up, so I once again let him borrow the GX2. The 8800 was then sold since that was back when I was in dire need of cash. He's been great to me and I feel I needed to do something for him. It's ok though fellas, no worries.
Another thing, I might have not continued to fold on that card anyways, just wayyyy too much heat!
on another note, talk about close finish for the cherry pie tonight!
I want compettttttiiiitttiiiiioooonnnn
Today sees a new member, Munkhtur, with pie, and Niko084 sliding up to No3 for blueberry pie
You saw my previous post?
Good battle there for the king slice!
It's now time to some new ones to have pie - I step down and return to folding with my two i7's. When the 10 pages of pending WU´s are verified I will be back to 2400 PPD. Enjoy the pie
That I did, but not by the time I had posted. Took me some time to get the graph and upload it & everything
What do you have that gives you 2400 PPD?
Great job [Ion]! I'll see what i can do.. I may need to fire up a few more toasters.. lol Great job pie eaters!
Two e8400's, one is doing GPU3 and when I run my 450 and the 460 it only does 1200 PPD. The other one is only @ 3.6 GHz.
Well, you currently have cherry pie for today, so maybe that won't be needed
1200 PPD is still very impressive, I get ~650 PPD from a C2D @ 2.4ghz
My points are gonna flop pretty hard for a day or two here...
Having a few stability issues with a few machines, a heavily clocked i3 and a clocked i7, both are randomly rebooting and locking up on boot after... Clocks must be ever so slightly unstable, all work is getting credit no failures, but one has a low clock as well, going to rip them down, clock and test them for a day or two here before they go back up
Best of luck, instabilities are always no fun
I guess that's one advantage I get form only running stock-clocked computers
Although if I can manage to be able to part with the cash I have a nice 24x7 Folder Cruncher in mind, 2x e5620's @ 3'ish, air cooled, Evga SR-2 and probably triple GTS450's *they are good for 10-12k PPD each.*
Whole thing just about $2500 and I can run it 24x7 365
That would just be incredible!!
For WCG @ FAH
IMO, if you're going to go with a SR-2, it makes the most sense to OC the CPUs higher--at least 3.5ghz
Well realistically I would bring them up as high as they will run safely 24x7 I just figure at least 3ghz would be probable, being the e5620 is only a 2.4ghz, not sure how high they might go.
I would love to put hex cores in it but even at this point it's quite a bit of cash to throw.
Definitely...but it should still do a good 8-9k PPD
Something very tempting IMO is 4 quad-core Opterons. That would be sweet, I've always loved multi-CPU systems
That might be pretty sweet as well, question is do any of those boards support clocking without having to do it with software....
I don't think so
But, really, I'd totally love, say, 16 or 24 cores @ even 2, 2.2, or 2.4ghz. I'd gladly swap my i7 for a quad-quad Opty setup, or a setup with a pair of low-clocked hexs
Mindweaver clearly heard me last night:
It's clear that MStenholm has gone back to folding, his pie share decreased from last night. Twilyth got the coveted cement pie, not his favorite spinach
My brief hiatus seems to be over, and I'm back with cherry pie tonight
MStenholm is completely absent, replaced by ocgmj, and Twilyth has moved up significantly
Not much changing for tonight's pie other thatn Mindweaver kickin' it up a notch and taking some Cherry pie tonight. Good job pie eaters
Great job Pie loving fat friends
The only time you can call me fat and I won't get offended if I was to be getting pie. Since I'm not I'm actually pretty skinny now.
Great job [Ion]! and the rest of the pie eater!
I have a few rigs down, but I'll work on getting them back up next week or the week after.
Time for Pie
Great job pie eaters and I'm glad to see Munkhtur still getting a slice keep up the great work.
I don't know what I'm going to do, but I need some damn pie soon!
