Congrats to everyone on the stone list
I should be becoming a millionaire in the next two days
Congratulations! BOINCstats is estimating late April (April 23 to be exact) for me, I'll see if I can push that number closer
I'll be keeping an eye on you
There's no need
I'll be stunned if I am ever able to pass you in PPD for a long-term basis. And you have a ~650K buffer between us
Gets cold this time of year... Maybe I should get this Q6600 I have sitting dropped into a board and clocked, get it crunching, that should help warm up over by the patio door.
That should push me over 4.5k PPD maybe even up to 5k.
You should do it then . 5k is some good daily #'s bro
Ya I would be doing even better if I could get my q9550 on track here but I need a better cooler for it to clock it and run it.
Just run it at defaults speeds bro, undervolt it if needed .
i did it the same, and you have to, because these things get FREAKIN hot
3.4ghz (400fsb) with about 1.2 are acceptable, i think
As long as it crunches, I don't care if its at 1MHz
I just got the urge to underclock my P4 as low as i can get it but this board doesn't like to underclock much... But that reminds me i got it clocked alittle better now. even 4ghz now with 900mhz ram speed along with 1000mhz bus speed(250mhz real) it gave alittle better performance then 3.96ghz with ~600mhz ram and 880 mhz (220mhz) bus...
Also i am putting my S1283 on my 5kBE while my main rig is down so it will be back at 3ghz soon..(maybe tomorrow)
undervolt, but don't underclock
can't no voltage options...
Then you shall leave at stock
Unfortunately, the Zotac board doesn't allow undervolting, which is a shame because the Q9400 runs perfectly stable @ 1.16v vs the 1.24v stock. It's really a very disappointing board, it overheats unless the northbridge gets good cooling, it doesn't support undervolting, or overclocking.
Sounds like you are in need of a new board?
or i can just leave it at stock voltage and run it at 4ghz
There are so many upgrades I want
A new PSU so I don't have to have it held in by cable ties, a new GPU cooler so the 8800GT doesn't run at 80+C when folding, a new motherboard so I can OC, etc. All total, all of these things would probably only set me back ~$150 (only $15 more than I payed for the Zotac board to start with), and then I would be well on my way to another cruncher (buy an E3200 and re-use the Zotac with it). Sigh
Christmas is coming up, you never know what Santa brings you
I was going to ask for some of the parts listed above from my parents, but instead my laptop broke so I had to buy a new one (for school, homework, and crunching). They're covering part of the cost, but it is still setting me back ~$350 so I doubt I will be purchasing any PC parts any time soon (probably February at the earliest, maybe even later )
your problem is: the Q9400 has 333 fsb.
i bet your board only supports FSB 1333... so it will run stock. my board supports FSB 1600... i can overclock my q9550 (which also has 333 fsb) to EXACTLY 400 fsb stable, which results in FSB 1600. at 403 fsb he refuses to post. until then... only a laaaarge field of crashes.
i just saw such an m-Atx 775 board,like yours... it only supported a FSB of 1333, so e5200=go fsb 333 and low multi: no go.
can this be responsible for your inability to OC?
Yep, this is the reason, it OCes my 1.8ghz Celeron 430 and did OC the P4 I sent to p_o_s_pc, but I don't have it any more so I can no longer OC it. Anything above FSB1333 (even 1334) refuses to post
