    Good job bro, keep up the good work.

    Thanks bro :toast:

    Yeah, it does install very quickly. I'm amazed, RC1 never installed so quickly.

    Which rig bro? Do you have a meter to test it? I picked up a sweet little Coolmax psu tester from newegg a few years ago. I just checked and it looks like they have made a few updates to it here (On/off switch).


    Very nice pos pc! What OS? x86 or x64? If it's a 32bit os you can gain more points on a 64bit. You probably know this, but I figured I would share. :toast:

    3.51 at 1.176v :D Im still exploring the BIOS, I think there is an option to leave Turbo mode on 100% which effectively will give me a 22x multi instead of 21x. The next time my ISP has issues (which could be any day) I will push it further since I won't be able to Fold without internet access. So far my voltages are nice and low and the the CPU is very cool, so I may push for 3.8-4.0 if the temps and voltage looks good.

    Its nice to see 8 WUs going at once, no? :toast:

    Awesome, how does it feel to have a i7? :D

    It's running now, I figured out what it was. For some reason clearing CMOS on this board sets up the wrong frequencies raising FSB to 450 at stock voltages and all power saving features on ETC. I just set it manually to 333*9 and I'm good to go. I just had to rush to work so I didn't have time to check it. It's crunching now. :toast:

    If you have dedicated crunchers you can stick a wifi card and put them in another room. I've gotten used to the heat over the years, but I just can't sleep with all the noise. Maybe the day I look to buy a house of my own I'll consider a "crunching room".

    I turn all my fans down at night and it becomes fairly quite.

    I'd like to that but my SFF cruncher would melt in no time. I had to ghetto mod a fan onto the side to keep it from roasting. Near 80C cores when it was in the same room as my main computer. London houses are well insulated so even with windows open, the heat just builds up like crazy.

    Main computer is easier to sleep with, the Gentle Typhoons are silent and keep it cool

    so my clocks with my volts aren't bad then? I'm sure with a better cooler and some more volts i could get it higher but i don't like the temps when i get it to around 1.3v

    @CP can you bump the crunchers helping crunchers thread and add me on the list. I need any video card PCI or PCI-E and a decent 350w or higher PSU

    That will get my last rig back up and running(the E1500)

    Damn. Well my AMD is in my TT Element S case as I'm sure you've seen. It runs fairly cool. The other cruncher is on a tech station so it also runs cool.

    Yeah, I was just stupid to think I could have an overclocked 775 Quad in SFF with decent temps. I'm considering going air cooling for the main rig and putting the H50 into the SFF. But that will depend on how hot it gets when summer/spring gets here.
