    I have 3 of these exact same boards and cpu's crunching at 3.4 with all cores unlocked.
    Got lucky! Just beware that there is absolutly no vcore voltage adjustment in Bios on the boards.;)

    I got my dedicated cruncher back up today! :rockout: BTW, my points are going to be drastically lower than normal, I'm crunching my quad for someone else for a while (helping them reach 60K).

    thats great.:toast:
    I am crunching my X2 for someone else right now so my points are also going to be down. But its worth it to help a fellow cruncher out.

    I am sooooooo pissed! I bought a GPU from a TPU member on 11/05 and have yet to recieve it. I just came home from a 4-day state volleyball tournament and was hoping to find a package waiting for me. But nothing was in the lock box. I really would like to get my E8500 crunching again. First I get screwed on an Ebay purchase (first time in 5 years), and then this. I should have just ordered a GPU from the Egg :shadedshu

    Just to let you know I am crunching away quite happily as you can see below, although I use my pc for net & gaming at the same time :)

    It's just my 5K BE @ 3Ghz, full specs in my "System Specs". It's hard having it run 24/7 like I wanted it to since I have to sacrifice 2Gb of ram from my main system for the cruncher. Trying to play games on 2Gb of ram with full detail just doesn't work!:laugh:

    maybe post in the crunchers helping crunchers thread maybe someone could send you some ram for the dedicated cruncher so you can have all 4gb back in the main rig

    btw i have no problem gaming with 2gb using 7.

    I might have some spare RAM (DDR2), I'll dig around in my heaps of spare junk, and I find it and it works I'll see about sending it to you. I don't remember if it's 1GB or 2GB

    Actually, there's no need to laugh, it's a good idea. It better to have 3GB in single channel than it is to have 2GB in dual channel, but having to go to the page file on demanding games.

    Single vs dual barely makes any difference in real world use.

    Well I would but I only have like $5 :laugh:.

    Games like Borderlands do not run with only 2Gb of ram at full detail though (I need my full detail!).

    Hmmn, I don't remember you buying my GPU's so they probably got sent elsewhere:D

    Oh and welcome back Paul;)

    Then do as was suggested. Run 3GB in each machine. Single channel won't hurt your performance as much as dual channel but running out of memory.

    I just got a PM from the TPU member stating that they were sick and that there roommate was supposed to mail it out but didn't:wtf:
    Said he would mail it out tomorrow....
    Can't believe that my E8500 rig has been sitting lifeless for over a month now:cry:
    It will only add two threads, but the more the better~
