    Well my number are definitely going to increase in the next week or so. Currently, I've only been crunching with my i7 2600k and i7 860 rigs. I did buy the AMD Phenom II 1045 rig Norton had for sale, but I still haven't gotten it set up yet (laziness). I also won the 3930k/X79 mobo combo in the Feb challenge. mjkmike was also nice enough to include 16 GB of RAM, a Corsair 850 PSU and three (count them, 1,2,3) HD 7770 cards for folding. All that is scheduled to arrive next Tuesday. I also bought a Silverstone FT04 case and GamerStorm Assassin heat sink (looks just like a NH D14) from sneekypeet. So after next week, this is what I will have crunching/folding-

    Name- Barb's Domain
    CPU- i7 3930k (hoping for a 4.5ghz OC)
    MB- ASUS P9X79 Deluxe
    RAM- 16gb Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600
    Cooling- GamerStorm Assassin
    GPU- EVGA GTX 780ti SC
    PSU- XFX XXX Edition 750 watt PSU
    Storage- Crucial M4 256gb SSD/ 1tb WD Cavair Black
    Case- Silverstone FT04

    Name- Barb's Cruncher
    CPU- i7 2600k OC'ed to 4.5ghz
    MB- MSI Z68A GD80 (g3)
    RAM- 8gb Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600
    Cooling- Notua NH D14
    GPU- 2* ASUS HD7770
    PSU- Corsair TX850
    Storage- Seagate 7200.12 500gb hd
    Case- Lian Li V1200B plusII

    Name- Barb's Cruncher #2
    CPU- i7 860 OC'ed to 3.15ghz
    MB- Gigabyte P55-UD3R
    RAM- 4gb Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600
    Cooling- Corsair A50
    GPU- MSI HD7770
    PSU- PC Power Cooling Turbo Cool 860
    Storage- WD Cavair Blue 160gb
    Case- NZXT Source 210

    Name- Barb's Cruncher #3
    CPU- AMD Phenom II 1045t (will be OC'ed some)
    MB- Biostar A880GZ
    RAM- 8gb Gskill Ripjaws DDR3 1866
    Cooling- Xigmatek Gaia SD1283
    GPU- ASUS HD7770
    PSU- Rosewill V2 700watt
    Storage- WD Cavair RE 160gb
    Case- Corsair 350D

    I'm guessing my numbers will literally double.

    Is there a Folding challenge on, or are we just helping out for the sake of helping out?

    Edit: Two HD 6900 series fired up.

    Meanwhile, reached Sapphire for average runtime for all projects (see my sig) :rockout:

    do note that the average counts all the projects. Including ones where I have 0 hours of runtime and ones for which wasn't even in WCG yet when they finished.

    The folding Team usually participates in the annual Chimp Challenge (date hasn't been set yet AFAIK) and we try to assist with that but hopping over there and giving them some help is welcome at any time. ;)

    My 7970 is going back over there soon but I want to move it into another build first.

    oh boy... currently, there's quite some chance for my little crunching operation in my university getting permanently sacked.
    Will get to know more in the coming days.

    It's complicated. But I'll get back at Ya when I get more info.
    ALSO, I might have to do a friggin' PP slide presentation on what I am doing with those computers, i.e. presentation on what crunching is all about. To persuade them to allow me to keep it running. As they implied I would have to.
    I HATE DOING SLIDES *flips table*

    I think James is right
    Show them the WCG subforum of TPU and it'll all make sense.

    Sorry for the double post....

    Looks like rig maintenance has been moved to tonight, though it means that my rig will be down through Wednesday. My new tubing should be here Wednesday, and since I won't have much time at all tomorrow night to get things going for the transition, it's going to have to be tonight.

    This means that I'll be dropping way low :( After I get my main rig done, I'll be moving the i3 into this Haf 932 case, and i'll finally be able to part with my old Blackhawk case. Maybe I'll throw it in the closet just in case ;)

    But I'm excited to do it, as I've been putting it off since December :laugh: It's amazing how things just keep popping up :rolleyes:

    Sure will! And you'll be able to see your 'old girl' in her new home ;)

    Already powered down, but i3 will be rockin' what it can do for now.



    Little tidbit: I put on the original Gojira movie to keep me going

    Just got the 1045t system up and running. So as of now, everything in my system specs is now crunching.


    Hey Norton, what temps were you getting on this computer. According the hardware monitor, at full load after 15 minutes, it's only hitting 33-34'c. Seems like it's begging for a OC (I need to read up on OC'ing a AMD, haven't done it since my X2 5200 cpu).

    I ran one of the 1045T's at 3.1 and the other at stock and only got a 10-15% boost in ppd so I opted for the cool running/low power goodness of that system running 6 cores at stock :)

    Sometimes that is the better way to go. I love my 2500k. Uses 80w at max overclock according to hwinfo which looks about right from the power meter.

    @manofthem, you win! You got there first.

    got the q6600 back up and running :p just need an ethernet cord to get it crunching, although i cant really afford a $20 cord atm cause i spent money on the Ostrog case and a NZXT Respire 120 HSF :p

    i HAD a wireless card but apparently the TP Link WN722N doesnt play nice with Ubuntu :banghead:
