    Guys I'm sorry but I had all rigs off last night. I got alot going on I'm really stressed and for some reason I just couldn't stand the heat last night in my room. Don't know if it was the stress or what not. I haven't been posting much and I won't be for a while as I will be away for a bit. I'll be in touch though.

    Added my laptop just now. 1.73GHz of Conroe-L power!! Running it at 40% so it doesn't pown my battery though. Still better than my P3, lol

    I have my laptop set so that it only runs while plugged in, but it runs at 100% while it is plugged in (about 97% of the time :D)

    Well... if you leave it plugged in all the time like that you'll damage the battery... it won't hold a good charge anymore. Anyways when I run it at 100% the temp goes up to about 75c...

    The battery and CPU are as far apart as it is possible for them to be in a 12" laptop, the battery is at the front and the CPU at the back. Regardless, the battery is still good for 3.5 hours of web browsing/office work (this is an X31, it's 6 years old and this is the original battery), and the CPU temperature never goes above 65 (According to Intel, the Pentium M I have is rated for up to 100C)

    I have some good and bad news guys. The server is amazing at being loud and sucking lots of power up, but it crunchs like crap :( My both my socket A rigs are doubling the servers numbers and still using less power.

    Thanks bro. The BOINC manager and the other windows are open on the other display, in case anyone was wondering :D


    On a side note. Check out the weekly battles thread I made. I announced the new battle for these next 7 days :D

    Wow, I woke up to a looping restart with bsod on my Q9550 rig.... I was testing the other set of Dominator's 2x2gb with different settings.... I was so mad i pulled them out and took a hammer to them... Do you think corsair will still RMA them?... hehehe I've already RMA'ed this set twice.... shitty ram... but enough bitching.. i've got it backup with the G.Skill ram.. Not good overclocking ram, but it does what it's rated.. Shit the Dominator's wouldn't even run 24 hours at 800MHz and they are rated 1066MHz..
