    mindweaver, I read your post at work. now that I'm home I must say that i'm sorry to hear that. I think you just need some good RAM :)

    I'm hanging in there bro, hasn't been the greatest lately for me, but I'm holding together.

    Sorry to here you've been down bro. If there is anything i can do, let me know.

    About the ram.. it's wierd i can let it set for a few days.. put it in the system run it at default clocks (800MHz) and pass 3 passes of MemTest with no errors... but set it to crunch and fold on my GTX285 and it's BSOD after 4 to 5 hours.. But i did get this ram on sell for 65 bucks.. This set is back @ 99 bucks on newegg... This 46 dollar set of G.Skill has crunched and folded for weeks on my E8400.. and 3 days straight on my Q9550.. only 3 days cause i took it out to test the Dominator.. Default timings for this set is 5,5,5,15.. I tried 7,7,7,20.. :ohwell:

    Time will solve everything bro :toast: Thanks :)


    As far as the RAM it's like the 1066 tracers I have laying around. They crunch for a week good, then cause BSOD's and fail memtest. The weirdest. All at stock. I just have one leftover stick that is good. RAM can be weird.

    As previously mentioned, you don't! But if this is you, then at the bottom of this BOINC stat page you'll find a link to your stats as shown below. If or how you put it in your signature I'll leave up to someone else.

    Observation.

    Just looked at stats to see where your team is ranked and noticed something.
    You have the U.S flag.........perhaps being classed as International would improve the likelihood of gaining new team members?

    May not make much difference but as they say at Tesco

    ........every little helps ;)

    Oh and congrats to Paulie who reached the mil mark :toast:

    That International flag is for ERazerHead.

    Here's a list of all teams. If you go down to position 48 (as of this writting) you'll see a US flag for TechPowerUp!.

    Here's a list of TechPowerUp! members on BOINC stats.

    Added: I'd like to mention this is an International team and I appreciate every one who joined just as I'm sure every one else does.

    I see I miss read your post!
