    Just started... E6500 but it's used for other things so we will see how it does... Might swap over a few of my folding cpu's to crunch being they suck at folding....

    Last Sunday I busted into the top 1000 ranks of the world community grid users. For a while I thought there was a funny smell in front of me but now that it's behind me it was only fart_plume![joke]:laugh:

    Each WU is sent out to a minimum of two computers, once they both report back as long as they give the same results each computers is given the points it claimed. If the results are different or one of the computers never replies, the WU is sent out to a 3rd computer. It does drastically reduce the amount of work that can be done if you have to send each WU to at least 2 computers, but in this case accuracy is more important than raw speed.

    Any chance you would be willing to sticky the Essentials thread I wrote (link in sig)?

    I'm gonna do some occasional folding for TPU, downloading WCG it now!

    I'll install it as soon as I hit 2 hours on Prime95.

    Cool so it's stable @ 191X21 but not 200X20! =[

    My OCD is kicking in and I want it stable @ 200X20!

    It takes several days (3-4 usually) before the WUs start getting validated and you get points for them. Read my post above for a bit more info on the whole validation process ;)

    Hmmm, it says you have no device installations either.
    Can you log in to your account and take a look?
