    Maybe, I want to re-use the Silverstone ITX case I already have (otherwise, I would have to go caseless, which doesn't bother me, but my mom would gripe until I purchased a case for it, which I don't want to do). If I get an Atom, I think I'll probably go for the D945GCLF2D (cheaper of the two Atom 330 boards Intel sells)

    I would go with the ECS that i linked because it has a PCI-E X16 slot. You could use that for a folding card

    I want the ECS for that reason but then I would have to buy a case, which I don't have any money for. I'll re-evaluate my finances, and see if I can get a spare case, because I would prefer the ECS board so I could upgrade my folding potential.

    You can start the production of my crunching badge - I made a fresh install on an old Dell work lap top (forgot the password). Now it is heating up a room with all its might (P4, 2 MHz, 83 C CPU). First job 8 % done, so only 1½ year before the badge ;)

    Well at least I got over 250k before having to massively lower my output.

    What's happening?

    BTW, it looks as if Chomes is back crunching again at his former rate, he turned over 10k points yesterday :toast::toast:

    Not sure what happened, some sort of cascade power failure or something. Hit every desktop pc except my server (which is on a UPS) but totally obliterated the battery in the UPS. It's a mystery really. I have a whole house surge unit and then all the pcs attach to seperate tripplite iso bars, the server + network equipment are on seperate APC UPS. No laptops were affected so they are putting out their usual WU's.

    Have an electrician coming out to try to find out what exactly happened. I have only one spare psu but haven't begun testing to see what exactly is bad in all the pcs now.

    That's great news Tim :). Glad your cast is off man. The addition of the new rig is also appreciated :toast:

    The GTX260 is folding away. I didn't mess around with overclocking it much (yet)

    Well, I looked up my processor to see what kind of overclocks people were getting with it, and I saw that legitreviews got thiers to 3.2GHz on stock voltage. I've been sitting at 240x12.5 (3GHz) for a while now, but I bumped the multi up to 13 to give me 3120MHz... hopefully it's stable.

    thats not a bad clock. My CPU is running 3.6ghz on less then stock volts.I wish AMD mad a Black edition AII X2 240 or something (i know they have the 550be)

    btw numbers should be going up for me. I just got my X2 4200+@3.1ghz crunching 24/7

    Yeah. The thought of getting a 240 crossed my mind as well, but I don't really need it for anything else other than to increace my crunching power, but the fact that it would be running faster while using less power is drawing me to it... sort of like Boromir was drawn to The Ring :laugh:

    Anyone else notice their status being real consistent lately? Usually my daily production ranges from low 3k to 5k and occasionally up to 6-7k. For the last few days it has been consistently around 5k which is what I like (like my Folding output). Just wondering if its just me or if they changed maybe the way they validate WUs.

    I know they do have trusted rigs if you have used them for an extended period, but I imagine my rigs were at that point after the first year of run time or so?

    Here is my chart:

    my stats have been all over the place. I know i have atleast 1 trusted rig (the 5kBE) But i have been playing some games and adding stuff so that could be why mine is all over

    Since about the 20th of December, my stats have been almost flat:

    BTW, Velvet, I passed you again, hopefully I'll stay ahead longer this time :p
