    don't worry, this is with a big ass radiator. Overclocked though

    [​IMG]

    these CPU's run up to 100ºc, hotter than any other CPU, if you can keep temps under 80ºc awesome, under 70ºc even better.

    Why concerned? they look good to me, especially if your running the boinc client @ 100% on all cores. My 9850BE runs about 51C with boinc. You have Core i7 and correct me if I'm wrong but Intel chips have a higher max temp don't they?

    the i7's do, safe temp for me is under 80ºc, although I have ran mine over 90 back on factory cooler. Just look at my temps, and you have seen my massive radiator

    Holy crap I just overtook p_o_s_pc and PCDEC :rockout:

    but too bad I might end this soon, the electricity bill is climbing and number of :nutkick: from wife is increasing too.

    hmm may be I will turn it on in winter so that room doesn't need a heater and can cut down on that cost :roll:

    did you use that file that dustyshive provided to have it update automatically after everything WU is done?

    Also, it might take a few days to have things level out points wise :toast:

    could it possibly be a bug that is rare? but aslong as its working i don't really care. if it happens again atleast i have some idea of what to try :toast:


    BTW if anyone was wondering a 350w Antec Smart power does fine powering a voltmoded 8800GT and overclocked 4850e(only 2.7ghz ATM) the GPU has been folding and CPU crunching. It does put out some heat but not worried i plan on having everything back together this weekend just have to finish the WM on my case and make sure the mosfet HS is staying on tight

    here you go bro, everything is in this post. This really helps stabilize the points.


    Another thing, are you checking to see if the rig is returning the WU's as error? Go to "My grid" on the WCG site.

    Then go to "results status" on the left hand corner, then there is a drop down list that says "results status" in the top center of the page, sort that by "error" See if any has returned as error.

    yeah, usually happens when rig is unstable. I had my e7200 return a whole bunch with errors, but I got it to a stable setting already.
