I'm going to be running bartspe off a thumbdrive, so I don't think more than 1GB will be used.
here is a decent board
here is some ram
its only 1gb but it is decent clocking
In that case it will be fine, all of my dedicated XP crunchers have either 1GB or 512MB of RAM
my dedicated crunchers have got along with 512mb just fine even under Windows 7(slow as hell if i do anything else with it) But with xp i ran it with 256mb at one time when i had a Socket A rig crunching
Wow, I'm feeling the love.. No welcome back Mindweaver... I'm sad now Well chicken patty did though in another thread! thanks again chicken! eerrr I mean Captain Chicken Patty! hehehe
WELCOME BACK MINDWEAVER!!!!
i didn't notice you weren't here i have been so F@$kedup from the meds.sorry
So I could get a 512mb stick instead of a 1GB to cut costs then?
I would get at least 1GB. While it may run, 512MB is a little on the skinny side.
i would stick with the 1gb because its already cheap as it is... and some projects may benefit from extra ram. Also keep in mind the lack of L3 so having alittle more ram could (not for sure on this) help makeup for the loss of L3
I wouldn't, 512mb is borderline tolerable for 1-2 threads, but the extra 2 threads (especially the Autodock projects, ie HFCC, FAAH, etc) will need more memory. If you get all HFCC or FAAH WUs at once you'll be looking at ~400-500mb just for BOINC/WCG
Thanks p o s pc! hehehe
Thanks bro I just seen the thanks! hehehe
So I passed on an Atom netbook in favor of a Ultra Portable with a Intel Core Solo SU3500. When I googled it, it looked like it was a single core from my Q9550 underclocked to 1.4 but when I looked at CPUz it says 1.6? Think thats accurate? May crunch on it since it does not get hot at all.
I estimate ~250-275 PPD @ those speeds. About 1/3 of what my 2.4ghz C2D gets, but still a worthy contribution
Finally got the psu I was waiting on and the Xeon is crunching again (yea)
Can't wait to see those #'s
I got Wile E in my sites...
I got the E1500 today. I'm working on overclocking it. So far it looks like 3ghz isn't going to happen on this board but 2.8ghz is looks like it may be fine
Good luck, Allendale's tend to OC pretty well (2.8-3.2ghz doesn't seem to be out of reach for most with decent coolers). What board are you trying to OC on?
seems that alittle over 2.8ghz is about all i can get stable. Using stock cooler on a cheap ECS board with a 630i chipset no voltage options at all..
I got my X2 240 in the old gigabyte board (Nforce 430) it doesn't seem to want to clock it much at all. Its alittle shy of 3ghz but it still is faster then the 5kBE@3ghz
Well that's pretty good then, I took my Allendale Core 2 Duo E4600 to 3.4ghz but that was on a TT Big Typhoon and an Asus P5K-E P35 with tons of OCing options. That should help boost your PPD by ~700/day, probably about the same boost for the X2 240
my bad the board is a 610i/7025
i feel with you POS!
i bought me a gt220 and a 2 GB kit of ddr2 dominators today.
the card overclocks like shit, but is luckily very cool and very quiet. performance is a little higher,also in folding.
the dominators error like mad, one stick is DOA.:shadedshu
no 4gb for a while, on my q9550!
I upgraded my 5kBE to the X2 240 today. Got it clocked to firstname.lastname@example.org(stock is 1.42v) runs 38c under an Xiggy S1283 running Linpack
I added another rig today its a E1500@email@example.com runs 53c under the stock LP cooler running Linpack. Both CPUs passed over an hour of linpack and 3dmark 06,Vantage,Wprime,Super PI and just being used. I am going to say there stable till i see one of them return an error
Awesome, what sort of PPD are you expecting now?
