    got a new replacement Asrock Fatal1ty P67 1155sckt MB B3 stepping on my for sale item's. Sent it in to be switched out for the B3 chipset. I don't need it or I would keep it. Any folders or crunchers I will give $10.00 off the price.

    My 50th bday wish is coming true. In hopefully 2 months, I'll be saying "meet my leetle friend!" and yes it will pack 60k ppd extra! Kind of weird how a guy, for his bday present, wants to be flat broke for months, so he can produce "points". I'm one weird broke person.....

    Edit: thankyou all for allowing me to be able to reach 11 million. And most of all, thankyou Buck.

    Well John, I think it's great that you're willing to go that far for the project. Hopefully all of our sacrifices, like 50th birthday wishes, which could have been used selfishly and instead were used to potentially benefit mankind as a whole will be worth it.

    I am going to unload a CPU/Mobo combo shortly, Gigabyte P55-UD5 and i7-860 Lynnfield CPU. I am running the CPU right now @ 3.6Ghz crunching and was tested stable @ 4.0Ghz a while back. Both retail, board comes with all the accessories and CPU with HSF. Folders/Crunchers get first shot before I put them up on my FST thread. PM me for details and pricing.

    Do you use the same passkey for all smp clients under the same username? I may do a quick test run of my i7 running smp8.

    Darn, not looking good for this es i7 for folding. It's only at 3.84ghz, and it's holding at around 78c. Think I'll have to wait for my 950, it should fold at fairly lower temps....
    Edit: yep, it rebooted. Just too hot of a cpu to do it.

    What vcore you running? Most of us use water cooling because of the heat. I have run my i7's upwards to 90C on CM Hyper 212's, so maybe a bit more vcore for stability?

    Hmm, yes probably, I trimmed down my vcore for temp reasons. This es needs 1.328v to run 3.84ghz stable, but I'm not even sure about that.... I've played the balancing act with vcore and qpi volts, but I just can't get better. I know the 950 I'm getting will do 4.2ghz, and 4ghz at only 1.28v, so I may just have to wait. I'm certain it's overheating. I could try another test at 3.6ghz, it probably would run.

    Heheh, fussy es chip. Dropped the bclk one notch, cpu went from 3.84 to 3.812. I'm taking a break right now but 87% through a 10hr smp8 job! Weird chip, temps dropped several c just from that. I guess folding your cpu full blast on all threads overnight is a darn good way to test stablilty!

    Back from holiday. Running -oneunit and will complete my remaining -bigadvs. Been a fun stretch but I'll be going back to WCG soon. Will keep the GTX470 going though. As ever, I'll wander back here full bore at some point again.

    Happy folding! :rockout:

    I may drop some points for a day or 2, I need my main folding box to test final version of HyperSli so anatolymik can release it. He trusts me as a beta tester, so I have to do this.

    Both folding boxes have to go down for 6hrs on thursday. Grrrr! Another below 10th day for me.... I so can't wait to put an i7 into the mix to make up these points. On the plus side, it appears HyperSli is about ready, was going to say more but under nda.....

    Now that the weathers cooling off, and I've gone custom loop water cooling for CPU/GPU I'll be back folding shortly, once I find some nice stable overclocks...

    I've got the i7 2600k up to 4.945 GHz @ 1.44 volts, I think that should be good enough, no? ;)

    Jeez, folding gets expensive.. had to sell a 260 for food money basically today. Replaced it with a 9800gt and started folding my e8400. Hope it'll make up the difference. Call it a price to pay for my coming i7 folding rig! I realized I can replace several 260s with a single i7, so might as well eat for now..... hard to maintain a folding farm on a fixed income.

    I have been out of the folding game for a long time. Soon I will be back!

    Alright... next issue. It appears my wrt54gl is not enough router for my 25mb/2.5mb connection. I get connection issues to gaming servers, during logmein sessions to a remote server ect when using it. When I go straight to modem, no issues. Running my folding rigs on the router as well, so I have to disconnect them every time I want to game or do maintenance on the remote server. Any ideas? I'm very broke, need cheap solution!

    Well, forgot about hst rebate cheques this month. So it looks like either early i7 folding system, or I buy a new high performance router next week. Either way, I will have both issues solved by the end of the month, yayy! Surprising what a little cash injection will do.....

    Also, I must pass respects to former member Hertz, who has allowed me the use of a 2nd x58 motherboard. This will be the basis for my i7 folding rig. I am now going to sell off my 260s. Also have a classic 9800gtx I'm looking to sell. Have a couple of athlon64 x2 cpus, ddr2 ram ect as well for sale. Want to go pure i7 folding. Video cards are a power sucking waste!
