    Only cpu's. General purpose x86 cpu's. There is a client for android smart phones but the high end only puts out a few hundred ppd.

    New OC on my 3770K -> 4.4ghz @ 1.068v loaded at 56C :cool: (only 3 fans @ min RPM on one of the radiators and the pump is turned to min speed)

    Oddly low voltage, but it passed 24hrs Prime95 Blend and has not spit out any WU errors so ill keep the clocks for the challenge.

    Whatever is stable and works best for you. The difference between 4.8ghz and 5ghz is minimal.

    sweet deal. i just upgraded to the 3770k from the 3570k so i just applied a oc i used to use on the 3570k which was 4.8GHz with vcore at 1.390 and the only thing that suxx is HT makes temps byte
    yes maybe so but 200MHz with HT is still something

    It is indeed. You will easily make the 5000 point minimum even if you underclocked. It is a beast of a cpu.

    Forgot to say I'm in. Having some electrical problems, so I'll see how it turns out. Turns out it's not the best idea to pull ~1000w through the walls of a prefab nearly 24/7 for years on end. Should be in with 20c/24t. (Hopefully 22c/26t soon)
    Manufacturer daisy-chained my room through a few light switches. Replaced one recently that had about half of the switch browned and melted.

    Agreed, that system should crunch just fine :)
    * reminder- for prizes you need to crunch/turn in results for the duration of the challenge... 5,000 pts is the minimum total.

    Pretty darn cold here in the Northeast too. Was in the single digits this am and in the 20's atm.... had to bust through 3" of ice with a sledgehammer this morning just to pull a septic tank sample :shadedshu:

    Now there's a Nor'Easter coming! :banghead: I would welcome a few days near 30F as well.

    Is your WCG user name different than your TPU user name?

    I think you're fine, it just takes a little while at first for your points to show up, once you finish one project it's sent in and then validated. Might take a day or two for the first results to show up, it did with me at least.

    Lol, thanks


    Me and my friend kindof share a little lan computer with an FX4300. (I own the CPU, mobo and PSU...) I'm gonna see if I can steal it back. He tends to not share very well.
