X58 more future proof
I have the same problem with two i7 920 and one Q6600 all three running Vista 64 bit.
However I have one i7 920 running Win xp x64 with Boinc Manager 6.6.20 that has never in five months had an error in Human Proteome.
none of my rigs error them now. weird. But I did have that issue, even at stock clocks it would error. Luckily its not plaguing me no more with that issue.
Hmm, what are the chances 6 core CPUs make it to 1156?
Did you change Boinc Manager versions?
as far as i know 0%
Well isn't that a B. I've got a great deal on a P55 in the wings. Think I will jump on it and if I want to upgrade just sell it off.
MetalRacer I do like your Avatar
Can some one bump our thread at WCG. It's on page 2
Well, it looks like it is going to be tomorrow afternoon, maybe 4-ish. Still, I'll be glad to have an extra couple hundred PPD, my numbers have been dropping recently and I don't know why :shadedshu
no sir. Same one.
which forum and which thread?

Hey dude IDK if this will help , but I installed Boinc 64-bit. It seems like im finishing projects faster than with the other version.
I know the cpu bench comes out alot higher with it.
Thanks, but all of my rigs are running 32-bit Windows. I tried putting 64-bit Server 2008 R2 on my quad, and although the benchmarks were higher the wireless didn't work, and wireless is the only way for it to get internet (no ethernet in my room )
what wireless adapter do you have? There are some unofficial drivers for alot of adapters that support 64bit. I myself have used them work great just alittle harder to install as there is a slight workaround.
ION already got it
I don't really know, I downloaded the driver here, I just saw recently to get the driver for Windows 7 via Windows Update. I may try Server 2008 R2 later, but doing so would require a complete reinstall if things didn't work (I don't have any spare SATA drives). I'm probably picking up a copy of Windows 7 soon, if I do I will definitely be running Windows 7 x64. Windows 7 drivers should work on 2008 R2, right?
i really don't know as i have never used any server OS. I would think it should isn't it based on the same thing just a few tweaks
Thanks A_novice she's just so cheerful.
I'm seeing the same thing. Before installing the 64-bit manager, I couldn't break 25k PPD, now I'm averaging ~27k PPD.
Shouldn't this thread be a sticky at the top of the section?
It doesn't really matter IMO, we reply here so much it gets bumped to within the top 5 threads in the WCG section constantly. Maybe I'll create an Essentials thread that contains a link to this, among other important WCG threads.
Sounds like a good idea to me.
