By the time I wake up tomorrow Soylent Joe will have his badge and 100k stone
Yep, congrats Soylent Joe
Also look at the special treat you got:
I think that's raspberry pie you have there
EDIT: Wheeee, 1.2 million
Holy shit that's great! I'm still sitting at about 98.4k right now, but I'll be a good bit over by next update. Thanks for the support guys
The first 100k is very nice. The first 1mil is even nicer
Once I get my two mil maybe we can team up again for your big stone, if you know which one that is. Clue: it has six zeros
I can help too with one or more of my P4s
And maybe something from work if they let me
Maybe, but I'm only a 10th of the way there. This time next year I should be over 300k though. It's just going to take me a long time unless I get some serious power. You guys are welcome to help, but it's not coming any time soon
What do you think of me picking up a Q9450 from a guy on here, it's only like $130 Put that in my main rig and get a cheaper 775 motherboard and some DDR2 for my E8400.
That's how you expand. You upgrade and then with remaining hardware you peace another rig. Before you know it you have two or more rigs. Everybit helps
You know you got problems when you build a whole new i7 cos you had a spare floopy
Yep. I think I'd start shooting on up if my E8400 were left to crunch as much as that X2 I'm running. I consulted the pops and he agreed that it was an alright move. PM'd the user about the stuffs. He said he could give me a Q9550 with a stuck temp sensor for the price, but do not know if want.
Hmmm, don't think that's a big issue, yet you want to crunch with it so you need the temp sensor
My thoughts exactly. I've heard stories about how hot that chip can get, so I'd rather not. It'd be great for pretty much any other use that doesn't involve overclocking though. I'm getting that Q9450 right now
Sounds good, I see some better output coming up
Yeaahh and Pos_pc offered me a good deal on some DDR2 so all I'll need is a decent 775 board and I'll have 8 threads going (lol just like one i7 ).
Quads are awesome
Although, an i7 is awesomer still, as is a PhII X6
if there is something i have learned is that the i7 may have 8 threads but it puts out slightly less points then 8 threads on 8 cores but the i7 clocks good and is nice because it has 8threads in 1 rig.I miss my rigs i had i think 8 or 9 rigs at one point in time.
Ah I forgot about that. Well either way I'll be putting out twice as much so it will be a good thing. Hopefully OCing it won't be a hassle, I'd love it to be at 3.6GHz
8 or 9?
I prefer fewer faster ones, mainly because of the smaller space occupied and lower power draw. So I'd rather have a single i7 than a pair of C2Qs
1 x2 4200+
1 x2 5kbe
1 x2 4850e
1 x4 9500
1 C2D E7200
1 C2D celly E1500
2 p4 HT
2 p4 no HT
well make that 10
i forgot that once i sold the 4850e i replaced it with a X2 240
RAMMIE posted once his count, was over 30
My parents would kill me if I tried that :shadedshu
A pair of i7s would probably out-crunch that whole bunch though
i plan to have a pair of i7's in November(just in time for the cold) all of that stuff together crunched about the same as a i7@4ghz and a PII X4 @3.8ghz so a pair of i7's would out crunch it
2 i7s would be awesome
Depending on what I can convince my parents to let me do in terms of DC when it cools off, I'm hoping to fold/crunch 24/7 on my i7, and then have a GTX260 and either 1 or 2 GTX460s. Probably need a 750 or 850w PSU, but the PPD would be amazing (potentially 40k+ for FAH)
I have no idea what i am going to have in terms of folding power then but i don't see it being anything that great. I may have the 8800GT,8800GTS and possibly a 9600GSO or something like it unless some how i can get $200 for a GTX460.
I would love to get a 2nd i7 and run the GT/GTS in it and have a GTX460 in my main rig. would do wonders for my folding and crunching numbers .
