    Is that ivy? I think v2 is ivy. Therefore it is socket compatible. Personally I would email biostar to see if it is really compatible or not if they did not list it. Also, if it is ivy, that is a p67 motherboard and it needs a bios update to do ivy more than likely.

    This board has had about 6 or 8 different procs in it, starting with a 2100, going up, down and back up to a 2100. It's been updated to allow IB, including the 3570K and 3770K chips I've had in it.

    Thanks for the tip on the ram. Currently it's got 2x4GB Samsung greens in it, and I don't plan on putting any more than 8GB in it. TBH, it's all a waste for what they use it for (internet and iTunes), but they've got a decent sleeper. ;)

    It should be fine in that board as long as the latest bios is in it.

    Well, the Azure VM has returned some WU's!!
    Here we see 9 of them. They are not running very fast but, it is doing 8 of them at a time.
    It's FREE, so I'll take it, Thank You! :D

    [​IMG]
    Apparently, the job's are done better than my Laptop does 'em? I rarely OVER point on WU's. This VM is 9 for 9!!

    hp has a similar promotion ($300 of credit for the first three months) BUT they call you and do a small interview and can approve or deny your account based on that and isn't open to individuals (you must input a tax ID).

    Azure is much more friendly.

    Could you just say you need 6 months of computational power for a school research project, then only use whatever the $300 will get you.

    not worth the hassle IMO, the most powerful instance you can run with that amount of credit is a Core 2 Duo T7700 :(

    Amazon has a free tier but the PPD is pitiful (1 virtual CPU, 400ppd/week) and way more difficult to setup (I took a good part of a weekend to set it up). It lasts a year though.

    Wait, WHAT? Amazon will give me a free virtual CPU for a year? How do I get ahold of that? I will use 400 PPD, why not?:D

    Signed up, got it running!!

    I ran Amazon's free tier service. I ended up with a few charges (about one dollar). Ended up canceling just to spare me the worry that I'd get a charge, not realize it, forget to pay it, then get in trouble with Amazon.
    Basically, you run your VM however you like and it's up to you not to use more resources than what falls under the category of "Free". They give you the means to shoot yourself in the foot and they just wait to see if you pull the trigger.

    Edit: Explanation of charges.

    Just put the chip in and it's recognized by the system. Just need to find a new home for the i3-2100, but I haven't decided if that's going to be a new owner or a new mITX board for the homeserver.

    Finally got the Q6600 up and running:) Going to work on overclocking her a bit and then get crunching.
    I am thinking of switching my main rig and laptop back to crunching under my name and dedicating the Q6600 to crunching for Kreij.

    I'm erroring out on some of my clean energy work units... anyone else getting errors? Stock or overclocked? How do I fix it?

    Depends, any other strange behaviour? BIOS settings right, chipset drivers up to date?

    No the system seems perfectly stable other than th error work units... everything is set up right in the BIOS... but I never bothered installing any chipset drivers though maybe I should

    Are WUs being submitted and coming back invalid or is the BOINC client stopping the WUs before they complete?

    It seems to be submitting them... because the Error units are claiming credit.

    There have been some issues with Clean Energy WUs lately. It is not your hard ware.
