    Wow, my ac went out yesterday... I'm still waiting for the tech guy to come out to fix it.. Air is blowing out of the returns.. but it's just hot air!... and the fan on the heat pump is working.. I hope it's not my compressor... I have some of my heaters off.. so my points will drop some... I can't have nothing.. :cry: :banghead:

    I know your not talking to me but i don't smoke and i don't plan to have children(but if i happen to have them then i will love them and take care of them) Your right they COULD benefit you(or me) even if you don't think it would... or it could just turn out to be a complete waste of electric/natural resources. :ohwell:

    Lies! You have like 6 i7's and those i hear can be reverse engineered to provide AC instead of a damn heater, you should have been fine in your garage! :D

    Never plan on children either. Sure, it could benefit, but I doubt it. I'm doing it because it doesn't cost me anything and it is furthering scientific research that will benefit. Thomas Edison said: "I haven't failed, I've found ten thousand ways that don't work." If one work unit doesn't reveal anything, maybe the next one will.

    i see the ads: "i7 can even butter your toast, during crunching a 7 hour iteration, and cooling your beer!"

    interesting how crunchers NOT want to produce new generations of crunchers?^^

    A lot of science and I guess invention is finding what does not work to reduce possibilities to find what does. Ever watch a toddler try to learn to walk? They fall over and over and over again and yet still keep trying to walk. Wish we kept that determination through out life. :rolleyes:

    they do, because nature implanted them+parents teach them to do

    mankind lacks these 2 favors of nature,children have, until they are mature.

    BUT:

    if you have an ultimative goal,a goal its even worth dying for, you CAN be like that, even when youre death is only days away...

    I am not going to crunch or fold again till i find out why i keep getting hard lock ups and errors on WCG and EUE's in F@H. I think its time for 24hr linpack and many hours of OCCT GPU and furmark and ATI tool along with 8hrs (or more) of memtest... looks like i am going to be using my lappy for a day or 2

    keep up the good work guys i will be back soon :toast:

    Ram issues or too much overclock, possibly a os/hard drive issue. A moderate overclock will crunch 24/7 forever without problems [AMD or Intel].

    I found the problem it wasn't the overclock at all. I shut the rig off because it hard locked again... i went to turn it back on and no post.. So i cleared the CMOS still no post. Took out the ram one stick at a time... Then what you know it posted with 1 stick put the other one in and no post again... So i grabbed my back-up ram put both sticks in and post. went to bios set voltages and overclocks again and ran memtest then a few hours of Intel Burn and been doing fine. So i am crunching again and time to RMA my ram that i got less then a month ago.(thanks alot Corsair)

    nah fuck, you got the garbage chips that dont get dominators (should be d9??)

    i even sometimes blame my dominators of not beeing stable enough, and to fail too early at subtiming tweaking, and timings in common... i would have liked to see 1066 4-4-4-12, but no chance.

    Yea I've sent back 2 sets of 2*2gb Dominator DDR2 1066's. First 2 sets one stick on each set was doa... The third set have been ok so far (Knock on wood).... I tested them on P35, P45, and X48 boards.. but my 2 * 1gb are rock solid... :rockout: If the third set goes bad I'll probably go muskin.. :rockout:
