    Welcome Black.Raven to the bestest crunching team in the whole wide world!!

    The plethora of information giving around here can be like having a Geeky Guru in your back pocket! You'll love it here, more than likely, if you keep an open mind and don't like starting flame wars!

    well i have a chance and i say HI! :toast:

    my Boin Boin rig (oh f*ck that sound soooo hentai ... ya know BOIN!... the "noise" that breast make when Boing'ing ... ) isnt the top grad but i think even the littlest can be of any use

    Phenom II X2 511 (woohoo a rebadged Regor Athlon II with Callisto core naming ... :wtf:) 3.4
    MSI N460GTX Hawk 1gb, maybe switched for the 480 i have in the 1st rig if i take a Colorfull iPlay 660 2gb White Shark
    in my 2nd HAF-XB so it runs all cool all smooth

    also on the upgrade side for that rig i will surelly pop more core in if i find a sweet deal on a 63xx/83xx as said in the team topic either a vish or the X4 955 i run.

    since my linux rig is for testing steam and some opensources games,emulator and mainly for internet browsing, i use it less thant the win7, so i can put it at work for WCG most of the time.

    Sidenote: why when i Boinc at 100% on linux, it doesnt cripple totaly the computer like it does on 7 :eek: im not complaining ofc :D

    Because it runs on the highest possible niceness and thus hands over the CPU cycles to all the other processes You are running when they need it.
    Yes, that rox0rz muh s0x 0ff!
    Too bad Windows' "task priority" doesn't work nearly as good and is way less fine-grained...

    Some rigs really get dragged down when crunching..... FX chips way less so, they are multi-tasking beasts :D

    still i run a poor little orphaned X2 511 and the main runs a X4 955 BE (not crunching on that one) and

    Post in the Team thread after you're signed up and started and we can assist with tweaks/adjustments, etc.. ;)

    *note- you will want to change the BOINC Manager software ASAP but start with the one in the link first

    Crunch! :D

    I would advise against using a benching clock but you can go along fine with a 24/7 stable overclock or gaming overclock as long as you can manage the temps. Adjust "computing preferences" to 100% and 100%

    *note- can someone post a screenshot of the settings on the preferences page as a reference?- I'm at work atm and can't do so on this PC
    ** EDIT**
    These are the preferences I currently use on one of my rigs:
