    I was thinking I would add a little bit more to what my 3GHz Kuma does since C2D arch is faster clock for clock, but the Celeron with it's 512k L2 cache isn't fantastic, so I wasn't too generous with my figure.

    When I had my Celeron 430 (Conroe-L 512k) at 2.8ghz it did ~400 PPD, so a dual-core should do about twice as much, minus a bit due to only 512k cache between the 2 cores

    I think I have an e1500 laying around somewhere. I'd have to get a mobo and psu to get it up and running though, worth it? Until I get the "new" server up and running the amd quad system has been put on hold.

    Definitely, the extra 700-800 PPD would be very welcome! :toast::rockout:

    Well, my friend's Q6600 appears to up and running, it turned in 8 days of work yesterday (offline for the past 9 days due to internet issues), but the problems appear to have been resolved, so now it's running WCG 24/7 I believe, temps are under 45c on all cores (Xigmatek HDT-S1283). My friend has been talking about getting a new PSU, and if so I'll overclock it up to ~3ghz or so. It's already turned in ~10 RICE WUs since yesterday, all of which are pending validation ATM

    BTW, yesterday was my best day yet, with 26 days of runtime :)eek) and 67,323 points (WCG) :rockout:

    Is it "normal" to have aborted WU's? I have 12 pages of aborted WU's. And it's apparently all from the same machine. This is the machine that still isn't grabbing new WU's. I did the reset on it, it grabbed a ton of WU's. But I never saw the WU's hit the task tab. I didn't check the machine this morning before work so I'm not sure if it's working on anything right now.

    When you reset you abort all WU's that were waiting for evaluation or that you were working on etc.

    The WCG website has been having some issues, but it appears to be fixed. It's fine to have aborted WUs, just note that you won't get any credit for them. I have some aborted WUs that BOINC aborted when the clock on my desktop got messed up and it thought it was 2010. BOINC auto-aborted them because it thought that they were way past the deadline. Oh well, it's working now.

    It appears as if you can turn WUs in slightly late (past the deadline) and you still get credit, my friend's Q6600 turned in ~35 work units yesterday, all of which were 4 days past the deadline, but I still got most of the claimed points, some of them even gave more points than claimed. So it sounds like it is best to turn things in on time, but you won't be overly penalized if you miss it by a couple days/hours

    so anyone want to give me a estament what i can expect from a a X2 240@3.5ghz? I'm thinking around 900-1000 maybe.. would i be correct thinking that?

    I get that from you guys saying the E1500@3ghz would get ~800. So that makes me think the x2 240@3.5ghz would get 900-1000 because of it being faster clocked and possibly a little faster clock for clock(the X2 240 is AMD's answer to the Pentium line not the Celeron)

    Probably around 1k PPD (WCG), maybe a bit more. I believe that Regor is about on par with (or a bit faster than) Conroe, which tends to do 1 WCG point/mhz/day/core (so, my E6550 would do 4600, the Q6600 would do 9600). Then divide by 7 to get BOINC

    EDIT: Ninja edit there p_o_s :p

    From my experience POS, the e1500 should pull close to 700 and the 240 around 900.

    Congratulations!

    Just to warn you, once you get farther up it starts to get a lot harder to keep advancing so fast. I went up ~25 spots the first few days, but now it's taking me several days to go up even one spot

    Well pos, after looking for a while, it doesn't look like anyone has had success with putting linux on the Zune :ohwell:. So it looks like we can't make it crunch :(.

    Well, it's all good. You just being a part of the team and crunching those work units is appreciated. :)

    One of my rigs still isn't grabbing WU's. Going to try to reinstall boinc.

    Reinstalled still getting the No work available to process error. So then I thought I'd be smart and see what happens on another rig. Uninstalled boinc and cleared everything. Reinstalled boinc and now I have two rigs getting the No work available to process error... woot.

    Yep, triple verified that this time. Though the last time that happened I disabled the windows time service.
