    hope it's all good man.

    On another note, I am in the process of some testing with my main rig. However this involved swapping components out from my other cruncher. So what does this mean? I'm down a cruncher maybe for a few days. I'll keep you guys posted.

    Nothing like a speed bump to shake all your shit up. I had big hang up too last week with my i7. Let us know what happens!

    Yeah, me in particular I'm not having any issues. Just having some temp issues over at the main rig, I think they are fixed though. but will test a few days to see what's up.

    i guess thats the price when they are on like 24/7 ?

    thats why i might be getting a server for crunching, they are build to run 24/7 compared to regular rigs

    naw man, many peeps have rigs on 24/7 crunching for years without a hiccup. Remember most of us use our rigs for pushing them and benching and stuff, that can have to do with it too!

    Hey guys good news I put one of my E5200 back online today and crunching away. Currently doing a recount of rigs. In active directory I see 20 rigs with BOINC service started.. But i'm only see around 16 rigs returning work... I'll check them all next week. I also need to check rigs down due to hardware failure and see what i can do to get them back crunching. I was hoping for 30+ I may be limited to 23 -25 for the time being. :toast:

    Yeah, 24/7 crunching won't have a detrimental effect to hardware if you take care of it (clean dust, make sure temps are okay etc). Hell, I crunch 100% 24/7 on my laptop... I've seen 60*c at the most since I've blown the fan/heatsink out.

    You just have to be on top of it more as hat stated. But they can last very very long.

    Some time in the not so far future we will have 12 instances (6x2, Intel) and fermi (many cores) and when do we upgrade? When we can't resist, money is there or when HW is broken down. I just got my i920 up running 2 hours ago. To the point of this post - I chose to look at Gigabytes Easytune temperature readout that says 56 C at 1.328 V / 3360 MHz instead of Real Temp 3.46 that claims 65 C. If the lower is wrong, then I will have i930 when it hits Denmark. There is no way that this rig will run 160 BCLK tomorrow. I go for the 200. FTW

    Edit: 200 x 20 @ 1,25 V (CPU-Z) 58 C (CPUID).

    the i7 is back up and running again at 3.7ghz and at lower voltage :) passed 300 time of LinX at stock and my overclock. I also added a 2nd fan for the heatsink to give me push/pull but only too about 1c off the CPU but lowered NB temps (to the touch atleast)

    I'm not sure but it seemed to be ram related but i'm not for sure on that :confused:
    I think i am going to buy some new ram. Maybe some GSkill Ripjaws 1600

    Oh I see. Ripjaws seem to be a popular choice.

    In other news, great numbers today from the top 10. I have had a couple 11th place finishes and one pie run, but today I was shut down well short. Keep up the good work! :toast:

    i use the ripjaws, and my set is very impressive!
    its stable at 1200 5-5-5-16-26,all subtimings as low as possible,stock volts
    i bet it will do also very fine, regarding every other frequency, and low timings, till 2100 and more, if you grab a good kit! some tend to be monday models, like i heard;)

    i found just what the problem was. The board doesn't like to run SATA and IDE HDD's together i get BSOD as soon as i put a ide HDD in it so i setup the server again with the IDE drive(it has all of my games and music on it so i can't go without it)

    the random hard restarts are back again :banghead: I lowered my overclock to 3.5ghz and took all voltages off of auto. I am going to run LinX 500 times and see if it can pass
