this why i dual boot im not sure, i have my os/firefox temp folders move to hdd but im not sure wer does wcg doing rewrites
I was planning on installing BOINC on my 500GB which is for my programs/games. The SSD will be only for the OS install.
This link has some good info on wear of SSDs. Given it is for the eeePC SSD, which is in no way as good as anything anyone of us have in our PCs. Better levelling and lifespan, that is.
You are not likely to find any problems from running Boinc as the disk use is in line with other system processes (of Windows 7 at least). From what the system resources tool shows me, WCG is using at most 3MB/s (peak). And if you take the pessemistic approach of applying that as a continuous sustained use to the far inferior eeePC SSD that still gives you an 8yr lifespan.
So no need to worry.
Or you can get an SLC based SSD like me
at first thats wat i was gonna do that but i thought about it, it is doing all rewrites on the drive wer i installed it or its gonna be on OS drive, ill let u figure it out CP
I don't get what you mean dude, sorry.
Also, JR is getting a pretty sweet hook up courtesy of a Chicken Patty
@ERazer + anyone with SSD
Not sure what settings you all have, but in the advanced->preferences if you look at the Disk and Memory Usage tab, you can set the % of pagefile used. I've set that to 0% and checked again the disk usage utility, and well it's probably the best setting. Your harddrive is still used for creating checkpoints, but there is no constant thrashing of SSD via the pagefile. I haven't monitored long enough yet, but it seems like it might even improve speed, but too early to tell.
Hope that helps
Thx Bud gonna check it out
Welcome aboard buddy
Be sure to check out this thread, it has everything you need to know in there. Crunch on and enjoy your stay with Team TPU.
Thanks for helping me promote my Essentials Thread, do you think I should add anything else to it?
Yes, a link to a cheap 6 core
no problem bro . I think it's fine the way it is
free would be better
Well, I'm finally back to 3 i7 rigs at full strength. All crunching away since last night. Good to be back.
Thanks to Bogmali for selling me back my old Pi's. It was the last missing peice for the latest i7.
Good to have all of you back Paul
anybody got a spare PSU. With one I can put back another dual core to crunch. Let me know guys.
I am loving my i7 its a beast at crunching.
I will have another Dual running tonight if everything goes right
CP i wish i could help you with the PSU but all of mine will be in use now that i got the 4850.
The 8 treads are gooood. I noticed that your integer Speed (Mops/s) is high. At what speed are you running? When I do 21x190 I only get 9534 whereas you get 11647.
I am only running 21x175(3675mhz)
I don't know about the benchmarks WCG uses. Ive seen my Phenom put up lower numbers than some people who have lower clocked Phenoms too. Sometimes it seems like it doesnt add up, no?
only 4 more days untill i hit 100k points w00t
I'm back in the game! I needed something to heat up my room, what better than to use my TRUE as a radiator?
How far do you think a Phenom 9150e would clock to? List voltages if overvolting is required.
atleast 2.5ghz on stock volts not much more.
