I noticed that The manager's 1 second is about 2 seconds in real life
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.
A simple suggestion would be to get a job...
i have a job. doesn't make enough.
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
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.
Just joined, downloaded and now I'm crunching...
I just joined too, am I doing it right?
This is a lot easier than folding
awesomeness paul. thanks for joining!
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.
my Phenom II is crunching away, so no worries for you my friend.
I looked at your temps and decided, you have the balls my friend Too close for comfort. You on air?
woohoo, what settings you crunching at?
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?
I mean like CPU settings and clock, like check in CPUz or something
Oh I'm at 3ghz, haven't tried OCing yet. Probably wont for awhile.
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%.
27c is hot
Sorry, I meant to refer dark2099's post. lol
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.
