    Getting 4ghz for 24/7 on a 860 is not going to be easy. Most seem to do 3.7-3.8. If you really want 4.0, go with the 1366 set-up and get a 920.

    By the way, do you still need a DDR2 stick? I have a 1gb stick of Gskill PC6400 I could send you.

    F**k, I am down a rig again!

    My QX has no cooler. The mega is now in the AMD rig, and the freakin Xiggy cooler just doesn't want to mount properly. I'll give it another shot later, but I doubt it'll work. I wonder what I'm doing wrong. :confused:

    So are you going to have 2 i7s, one for F@H with -bigadv and one for WCG?
    If so :toast::toast::rockout::rockout::rockout:

    will you need the board/cpu/ram only or you'll need psu and everything else?

    the CPU is going to be used for WCG the GPU(s) for folding.

    800-1k is more than enough POS. Post up what parts you are looking at so we can make some suggestions. My i7 rig build will be under $800- how far depends on what I get for my old HW.

    Im with you on the CPU WCG and GPU F@H, but Bigadv is some serious PPD. I think I will occasionally run them on my i7 if it clocks well enough and leave my Athlon X4 on WCG.

    My dad is convinced that these distributive computing projects like WCG and F@H are fake and are only out to steal any information they can off of your computer.

    250,000+ users
    University organized
    Legitimate teams competing for the top crunching/folding spot
    No one's shit has ever been stolen by these programs (that I know of)

    So, I know that it's the real deal. I just passed 6 days of runtime :D

    I think I'm going to try to get my E8400 to 4GHz somehow, I know nothing about OC'ing but I'll try to find a tutorial or something.

    Distributed computing is safe, no idea where he gets that idea from. Head over to the overclocking section of TPU quite helpful guides to overclocking. Also found you this thread for Core2Duo so you can get some idea of what settings others are using for similar setups:

    I'd recommend that you go with either 2x2gb or 3x2gb of ram. 3 gigs is just barely enough if you are going to use the rig for anything else. I'm always over 2gb with 8 threads crunching.

    I will be replacing my 5K BE cruncher with a Athlon II x3 425 and a new motherboard, hopefully I'll be able to unlock it into a quad core and OC it like mine. The CPU is OTW and I have to wait till Monday to get the MO out for the MOBO. It should hopefully be online and crunching by next week :rockout:. I'm becoming addicted to crunching.......

    I will be upgrading later. I'm getting the ram and board as a combo the ram is next to nothing so later on i can pickup a matching 3x1gb kit for it.
