    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 :rockout:

    @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
    Chicken Patty and ERazer say thanks.

    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 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?

    How far do you think a Phenom 9150e would clock to? List voltages if overvolting is required.
