    I think I got my Athlon 2200+ working :toast:

    My uncle gave me a nice matching set of 2x256 DDR266 and it's ran beautifully. I manually set the CAS timing and speed in the BIOS and left the other timings alone and it hasn't hiccuped once, and I've been running WCG at 100% on it. Amazing difference over PC133 too...

    only problem is I may be getting a magic jack phone which would be running off this computer since I won't put it on my main rig or my laptop, and if WCG interferes with it, I'll have to turn it down or maybe even uninstall it completely... but I'd hope not.

    So I kinda fell off the horse for a bit there between work/school and other stuff, but I wanted every one to know that tonight I am putting my main rig back on WCG. Also I am working on putting together a 939 rig and getting my other AM2 back online just waiting on two new sata drives.

    I just found this graph in the WCG forums, it shows the estimated progress of all the projects.

    This was posted on November 25th so it probably isn't too far off from where the progress is at now.

    Awesome, thanks!
    If you want your PPD estimated, shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do :)

    as i promised.I said that soon after Christmas i would have another rig running. Well today i ordered a board for the X2 4200+ and a PSU for the E1500 rig

    So once i get the PSU buck is sending and the one i ordered the setups will be like this(mostly doing this so i can get my shit in order because i am confused as fuck)

    X2 240+GTX260 700w OCZ
    X2 5000+BE+8800GT 480w Tt
    X2 4200+8800GT OCZ 500w modX
    E7200+8800GTS 700w Silverstone
    E1500+8800GT 400w corsair

    Now the P4 661 will be getting replaced for now with the X2 4200+ till i get the money for a HDD and ram for it also. But the X2 will give much better PPD then the P4 so it will be a upgrade but i do plan to get it running again at a later date.

    running out of room
    can't help there.
    don't have anymore open Ethernet ports after i add the other X2
    Wireless adapter?
    its getting pretty damn hot in here
    sissy, put up with it! :p undervolt and underclock, you won't believe how much it helps when done to multiple rigs
    noise is driving me insane sometimes at night

    put everything out of a case bro, all you need is one fan per rig, brings down noise a lot!

    I am running ALL of the rigs on 1 wireless adapter. I have it "shared" using a 5port Ethernet router. but i have a PCI NIC laying around i could put it in one of the rigs and bridge the connection to share that connection. I would underclock/undervolt but that isn't me i like to overclock/overvolt :p 3 of the rigs are going to be caseless the other 3 are going to be in a case

    just some ideas, I mean you can try them or not. But if you want to help with the heat, overclocking/overvolting won't help. not bashing, just saying :toast:

    I know overclocking/overvolting won't help with heat it makes it alot worse. I ran everything stock for a day and it was about 10f cooler in here and that is even when it was ~20f warmer outside then it is now.

    first: shut down your heater. no heat needs to be generated, even when its -20 degrees celsius outside. you rigs can do that.
    second: you need to exchange the warm air with cold from the outside (window)
    open window and closed window are up to 15 degrees difference to me.
    third:
    did you already stapled them rigs to the ceiling?^^
    no?
    you have space!:D
    no really, wireless would give you the possibility to remote admin the rigs in the whole house. you will just need to make sure the settings are stable, because.. remote wont work in bios, as you already know. but its really easy with the version i gave you, when they are;)

    I'm thinking about hanging the rigs on the wall(i have seen it done before) i don't think it would be hard to get the mobo's up just need some nails and some thumb tacks(the plastic ones to act as spacers between the board and wall) building alittle shelf for the PSU's and HDD's wouldn't be all that hard. So if i am completely out of space i will go to that. Also when i run out of ways to wire the rigs i will start switching to wireless. The heater isn't even on anymore i would open the window but i don't think 27f air coming in on me would be good when i am already fighting a cold.thanks for ideas

    you may have to sleep in another room, to keep the clocks, and not dieing thru heat or cold:)
    i believe i saw what you meant! cyberdruid constructed several techstations, hanging of the wall... i really liked the Idea! i would appreciate, so see pics of it, if you one day may do it;)

    I'm solving my room problem with one of these in another room that I have assembled but I still have your problem #2.
    [​IMG]

    don't have anymore open Ethernet ports after i add the other X2
    This is easy to solve with either a network switch or setting up a wireless network. I'm setting up a wireless access point and bridge. I have my wireless ap but still need to buy the bridge on my next payday.

    its getting pretty damn hot in here
    CP covered this!

    noise is driving me insane sometimes at night
    The only way I know is to move them or use quieter fans!

    i got the noise problem taken care of. i lowered GPU fans to 75% from 100% only ~2c raise in temp
    turned on the fan control in the bios on 2 of the crunchers. also i put the video cards back to stock speeds so that will help alitte with heat.tomorrow i will lower voltage a notch on the CPUs and stress test them. If they stay stable on lower voltage at same clock speeds then i will keep it there if not then back to same..So 1 problem solved 1 problem kinda solved

    noise =solved
    heat= partly solved
    space=solutions available
    networking=not solved but 2 possible solutions
    I am already running wireless so i could just grab 1 more wireless adapter and a cheap hub and have another 5 ports so that would let me network another 6 rigs for almost nothing.there is a used parts shop that sells hubs cheap alot of the times and the wireless adapters can be found for under $20 if you look around. Cheap solutions FTW :rockout:
