    Hmm, I am currently running 10 of them and the temps seem to be about normal. It is running about 44c on most of the cores which is maybe a couple degrees C above. Of course my system is running water cooling so that could have a lot to do with it.

    Your 3770k crunchers at 44C normally? That's amazing! :)

    :laugh: Don't have a 3770K anymore Matt. Its a hex core L5639 Xeon 1366 chip in a P6T Asus board. :peace:

    Some MCM WUs are FAAH<MCM<CEP2, some MCM units are MCM~CEP2. They vary a lot in workload size.

    Measured all my in house computers power usage today. ~800 watts. I get about 15000ppd with this set up right now. ~18 points per watt total. Is that good or bad? Then putting 800 watts at 24 hours per day at my cost of .0877 kwh in this calculator here says $0.50 a month. Cant be right.

    Let me get this straight:
    You pay 0.0877¢ per 1 KWh!?
    Don't You mean 8.77¢?

    (don't forget the calculator in this site uses cents, not dollars. And if I enter 800w + 24h/day + 8.77¢ / kWh, it gives 50.515$, which seems to be a sane number)

    That also includes my gpu's power usage so that doesn't go to WCG so my ppw would be higher.

    That can't be right either as I have a ~$65 bill.

    The math is correct:

    800w-hr x (1 kw-hr/1000w-hr) x 24hr/day x 30 day/mo x ($0.087/1 kw-hr)= $50

    Meter may be off or double check kw-hr's charged on your power bill

    I'm sure that your computers are not the only things that consumes electricity in your place.

    With the current exchange rate I pay 0.386 US cents/kWh and that adds up to $612 for the past 30 days.....but that includes some electrical heaters and the usual stuff that you have in a house.

    Why it can't be right, is I highly down that the rest of my electricity is $15 for other than computers. When I moved into this place my bill, it was summer so I didn't have the heating going. I didn't have my fleet going either. So I had the bare essentials of no heat and no computers. I had a bill of $35.

    I'll have to put down the 2500k to 70% soon (or the 2700k). I am going to test Ubuntu server in a VM, as I am looking for free OS to run my servers (VPN, FTP, file server, Teamspeak server).I can't aways pay for Server licence, for home and my parents, it cost too much xD

    It depends what you will do ;)

    if you run it always, it will use the profil you set and it will crunch for the amount of CPU you allowed, ot during a schedule.

    Just checked my main pc and the temps running the MCM WUs are the exact same as FA@H, 8 threads of MCM. Interesting since the i3 did see a slight increase. Perhaps the cooling makes a difference...?

    Whatever the case may be, all's well :)

    And welcome to the team night.fox! :respect: :respect:

    Can I get a quick opinion from the group here? Just installed the FX-8350 in my sig rig, overclocked to 4.8GHz @ 1.425v in BIOS (but 1.55v reported by CPU-Z) , Koolance CPU-370, Thermaltake TG-3 grease (very fresh), stock DDC-1T (new top soon), Black Ice GTX 360 with three Enermax Magma fans pushing, three weak Corsair case fans pulling. CPU load is all FAHV project.
    I'm seeing 55c CPU temps with ~21c ambient temps. VRMs doing nicely at ~73c. Doing some spot checks with an infrared thermometer, my water temp seems to be about 29.5c, the back of the CPU socket is over 60c. Attached are load temps followed by idle plus CPU-Z.

    ..so, is this normal for Vishera processors? I thought this loop would be overkill, but it seems to be struggling.

    8350's start to heat up and use a significant amount of power when you go over 4.4-4.6 (4.4Ghz will almost always run at stock voltage)

    Those VRM's are kinda toasty at 73C! Personally, I would try to stabilize at around 4.6Ghz with a lower voltage to avoid heating up the VRM and socket too much....

    Plan B- get some more air moving over the VRM's and the rear of the socket.

    *note- iirc the Extreme 9 board is a bit of a pain to set up at a high overclock.

    Is OCing actually more worthwile compared to having that extra power (that the OC draws over stock) be drawn by another (low power) system? I mean, going that high must be lethal to the better PPD/watt ratio that stock sting give especially with FX CPUs. I don't know how much extr wattts are drawn with a Vish clocked that high though...

    It depends, I think. If the rest of the system uses enough power, it would be more efficient to overclock.
    Lets say a system that draws 300w total at load and lets say 100w of that is the CPU. Overclock that system 20% and say it now uses 150w. Yes, the processor is using 50% more power for 20% more performance, but the total system load is only 350w, or 16% extra total system power.
    In that scenario, five overclocked systems at 350w each (1,750w total) would have the same performance as six of the same system at 300w each (1,800w).

    I actually do have a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX r2.0 laying around, but I thought people said the ASRock was just-as-good/better. Newer features at least. Also, it doesn't match my theme. :(

    In case any of you are wondering. I have been pouring my heart and soul into trying to somehow make our daily numbers interesting. I spend upwards of an hour each night, sometime less, sometimes more, searching and researching random crap that is related to our daily score.

    I'm getting the feeling I could just throw up a number and only three people would notice!

    Somebody, anybody, hit the damn Thanks button! I need some reassurance !!

    If you managed to regurgitate a number... a lot more than 3 people will notice :D :laugh:

    Maybe more would notice but, who would care? Would the Mods give me a demerit? Would I be run out of town with my hair on fire?

    Nope, somebody, other than you, might post something but, really?

    I'll keep doing it despite the fact I need it more than anyone else. :shadedshu:
