    Nice find. I am finally good on hdd/ssd's. The little voice tells me to get them though. I am strong. I am.

    Well tomorrow is going to be a very low day for me. The guys are coming over for a little LAN party, and all crunching will be stopped; pc 2 and 3 will be off, and main pc will be gaming. :)

    I'll resume tomorrow night, but it'll likely be pretty late in the evening. I got the chips, pretzels, Wild Cherry Pepsi... the staples of an awesome LAN party, and the other guys are bringing some other stuff like beer and bagel bites!!! Unfortunately I can't have any beer or alcohol because of the medication I'm temporarily on, which kind of sucks, but it's going to be fun regardless :rockout:

    Just thought I'd share :laugh:

    I should be up in points the following days. By c2d 6300, although low in points was down for a few days do to a cooling problem. Now it is back up, and pushing the limits of its cooling with an overclock. My msi p67 gd53 was refusing to overclock my 2500k. I updated the bios and now all is good at 4.4ghz.

    Gonna switch one of the L412s to Linux and see how it goes. If I see a decent increase I'll switch the other too.

    We have some nasty thunderstorms going on right now, and power has gone out 4 times in the last 20 minutes. I powered down all rigs :(

    It was a lot of fun! We played a lot of Far Cry 3 coop for the first time, and we threw in a little Nazi Zombie Army 2. Far Cry 3 had a few issues unfortunately, like 2 of us had the game crash and one time the game jinked up and we couldn't proceed, so we had to restart it.

    Had I been able to drink, I think it would have been a tad better :)

    I just put my X58 UD5 into temporary retirement :) since I got some new toy - 4790k on a Maximus VII with a NH-D15. AIDA64 says max 70 C @ 4.6 GHz and 1.275 V (100 % fan). It runs at 60 C crunching @ 900 rpm. :D

    Pretty nasty here too so I'm cutting back my other FX-8350 rig that I have at home... still have 2 rigs going at home and 2 rigs at the remote sites so my ppd shouldn't drop too much.

    hey guys, i need a suggestion.
    Do you think a Celeron 1037U would be holding the HD7770 GPU (PCIE-X8 slot) for Folding.

    I have spare HD7770 lying around and i am thinking of putting it to good use.

    Sure it will. I did a test with a "slow" and and fast CPU. The 3.3 GHz did 99 % of the 4.6 GHz when it comes to folding.

    Do you mean almost double points at 4.6 GHz compare to 3.3GHz:eek:?

    First thing first - we are talking about folding not crunching right? As I wrote I get 99% points at 3.3 GHz of what I get at 4.6 GHz. Did I mention double any where?

    In other words....you will be fine with the 1037u feeding the HD7770.

    Nothing says cryptocurrency crash like getting two (severely used) 7950s for $180+s&h. :toast: I think I'll soon join the Folding ranks. ;)


    Is folding affected by using a 32bit or 64bit OS? Can I Fold without diverging a CPU to it?

    edit: wrong thread :oops:

    There are some awesome deals going on on AMD cards! While folding, you need to dedicate a core to each gpu, and while I don't know if that "core" really means core, I put 1 thread to each gpu. Not sure about 32/64bit

    Unfortunately for me, I kind of put WCG ahead of F@H because my power bill went crazy high while folding lol :eek: The 7770 is still folding since it barely draws power.
