    Hello team,

    Wanted to create this thread to have a place where we can discuss our future plans for our crunching farms. Upgrades/downgrades/replacements/hardware shuffling, whatever. Post'em up and let's see what we have in mind for the future.


    I'll start it off:

    For my 2nd cruncher below, I have another X2 coming my way. However, I am going to be passing on that rig to my GF for her birthday on May 10. Once I do that, I will be building an intel rig to boost the PPD of my farm. Something at least quad core with HTT.

    Expected completion date is about end of may or early June.

    Good thread.

    Not to be off-topic, but I originally clicked on this thread through the active discussion at the top of the main forum page. I thought it was going to lead me to a thread about Farmville on Facebook and I was going to troll it.

    I no longer will. Have a good day!

I have it I jst need to get it set up with the client and OC. Don't really have any plans on expanding. Looking for another xeon system combo used if I can find one at a good price though :toast:

    OK. I'll be able to finally fill my x58 motherboard with good cards. I got an msi x58 pro-e, but when three card are in, there about a 1/4 of an inch between them, goddamn it's hot! So i bought a open box gigabyte x58 udp3 for 140$, will sell the msi, and hopefully be able to fill the board with the three cards i've got : msi gtx 460 768, gigabyte gtx 460 768 and my good old evga gtx 275 co-op. With my 950 in i'll be able to pull around 60000 ppd. I'd like to have another rig, but i'll have to wait until i've got more money to spend on it... For now i think it'll do the job!

    I'm just wondering what to replace the 3rd rig with after I finish the 2nd one. It's only a Pentium D for now, if I can get a other quad with HTT that would be awesome.

    At that point it would be about 8-9k ppd from rigs 2&3. Then about 3.5k ppd from my thuban. :)

    Well - hopefully (after a week since payment) I will be getting the Asrock X58 motherboard so I can start crunching on the i7 920 that has been sitting doing nothing for a month. All of those poor puppies (remember CP?):(

    I have a work in progress atm. Have no intentions to replace sister's E6300 or my work i7 930 but I'm almost finished with my bedroom's crunching farm:
    [​IMG]
    3 out of those 4 are the new Sandybridge i7 2600K (4.6GHz, 4.4GHz, 3.8GHz). Next up will be to replace the Rampage 3 Extreme with another 2600K. Then I'll take my time to OC them all to 4.6GHz.

    Estimate around 24K PPD @ 600Watt. And hope to complete it all before end of April. Heat and noise are actually incredibly low.

    It's my birthday at the end of the month. Last year I gave myself an I7930 and a 1055t. This year I think it will be another 2600k and then wait for bulldozer. Crunch on and Crunch harder:toast::toast:

    Awesome stuff :toast:

    To answer your question: yes, once you entered your username and password the points go to your account with our team. If you want to double check they are added correctly log into the WCG site and check your Device Manager, the new additions should appear in that list.
