    I hope Thursday gets here fast so i can get my other cruncher back.also i maybe picking up another board and Celly D 3.6ghz. It uses DDR ram and AGP. I was told i can have it for free but has some bent pins on the socket :ohwell: I think if i sit down with a needle i can take care of them.

    You can try running a credit card through the rows of pins to straighten it out. That's how I did a 9950 that I accidentally bent pins on.

    This is pretty easy on CPUs, but fixing the pins in an LGA socket is very hard :(

    All defaults. Like 38 hottest core coolest 28. The lap Job on that CPU is kinda bad, but won't complain. It was donated or the cause.

    Awesome, if you give me your CPU speed and OS (X32 or X64) I'll give you a PPD estimate :)

    An empty mechanical pencil works good for isolating single pins by capturing the pin in the tip.

    thanks for the ideas all of you.I am going to try the way i am used to first then move on to some other way. I have no idea how bad the pins are damaged as i haven't seen the board :ohwell:

    My main rig has been crunching for a solid day now, and my other about 12 hours, yet nothing is showing up on my page. What's up? I've completed about 4 "units" or whatever they're called on my main puter and the other is still working on its first set of 3.

    Once you're logged in you can look on the Results Status link on the top left, this will show you the status of your completed WU's. Quite likely they're showing as Pending Validation. It takes a little while to validate, so don't worry you WILL get your points. Certainly when you just start it takes a while.

    Why not re-lap it yourself?

    That's really good! That leaves a lot of room for OC'n!.. lol

    Maybe a little touch up, but if it's already down to the copper... I don't think i would touch it with those temps. A cruncher at stock is a lot better than no cruncher at all.. lol :roll:

    It takes a while for the WUs to validate, sometimes even a week, so you will get your points, but you just have to wait a bit, and then they will start coming in :)

    I am picking up my X2 4200+ and GTX260 tomorrow so that will help my folding and crunching :D

    EDIT:what do you guys think of this upgrade...
    replacing the X2 4200+@3.1ghz with a X2 240@~3.6ghz?
    if i did that i would have 2 x2 240@3.6ghz crunching

    Sounds good, should net a decent PPD increase.
    BTW, I may be picking up an Atom 330 soon, if so, it'll definitely be used for crunching :cool:
