CONSISTENCY IS KEY. I'm sure you all know this. That's why I don't even bother overclocking anymore.
First post here:
1st post and 96,000 results!!!!
^ this. i run 8 -12 hours a day on my rig and when all the pieces for my 2nd rig (newegg didnt work out >_< ) are bought, i will crunch on the i5 2400 24/7
Is that good?
Absolutely agree on the consistency thing- I've been pulling points here at a pace I can't keep up forever but when I do back off to a more sustainable level I intend to stay there indefinitely....
Still is amazing how those gpu wu's perform though!!! WCG bring us moar...
Consistency is key, but I feel that if I can get an extra 25-33% free through overclocking I might as well. Obviously I run a good stress test before I fire up WCG, but I think it ultimately pays to OC a bit
Well my point of view is different because I can't runanythinh higher than stock. So keep that into consideration.
You will find that the FX chips like to overclock
Instability isn't really an issue with them..... keeping them cool and their power consumption when overclocked is the real issue.
For now keeping it cool is not much option. Got to move around my coolers to arrange something for it.
I can fix that
bro, I love you man! NO HOMO.
Cmon guys, surely someone else has a new badge!
I just achieved a sapphire badge in Say No to Schistosoma, so I've switched everything over to GFAM for now
If I will get badges they will first be for SN2S, DSFL and GFAM. HCC will be more tricky to get badges for because the GPU WUs won't add to the runtime as fast AFAIK.
No, they do. I've only been doing this for a little over three weeks and I have a ruby in HCC due to the GPU WU's.
Oh, I was thinking someone stated otherwise here. Might have known better by checking my own stats more carefully lol.
You're making solid progress-just keep at it
If you want badges to come faster, you can switch to one project at a time
Meh, I just let the entire range of WCG projects be crunched on my rig.
Fair enough. I'll run one until I get a badge in it, and then move on--once I have a badge in all of the current projects, then I let it run anything it wants
Looks like I am one day away from my emerald in HCC
That's very solid progress for so fast!
Looking good t, can't wait to get mine just checked, looks like I am 61 days away.....
