    The Q8300 is on a Zotac 610i and it doesn't OC.

    I had some high falootin Mobos that were just too pimp to serve as pure Crunchers. I'm retooling with some cheapass mobos that OC and some low dollar PSUs...no sense running a flock of $600 rigs ya know.

    You've told me with your own mouth on the phone that all you do is sit at home and surf the Internet forums...;)

    You said you get paid to write some sort of reviews and you make money selling items on multiple computer forums...;)

    LoL! Ok Cd Ill let you slide this time. Buying a mobo that dont overclock though....hmmm :laugh:

    Totally agree on not spending that much $$ on the crunchers. Thats why I buy Ultra psu's & never have had a single problem.

    Well there were no reviews on the 610i that mentioned the lack of OC...and I know Zotac generally is into performance so I made a wrong assumption.

    It is a tiny little mobo though...it'll be perfect for my Daughter's rig in a couple of months.

    Zotac got their chance. I'll try something else...not a fan of G-boards but I hear they do make some mATX that OC a Quad.

    Yea, much easier to setup than folding. And I'm sure fit mentioned this, but just to maybe inform some new members, this stresses your CPU alot, possibly more than Foldling. So make sure you have good cooling or balls.

    I don't know, I had to stop it since I was playing l4d but I'll start it up again. Where do I check?

    you should be able to crunch some good numbers however.

    Hey anyone tried running the CPu benchmark in the BOINC manager.


    In advance view go to advance > run cpu benchmarks

    Your temp is really high. Try lowering load settings on WCG client to like 90% or 80%.

    Yup, these i7 chips don't seem to mind them much cause it doesn't flinch. And I just realized something, it survived last night at these settings, can possibly try a lower vcore and get those temps down.
