    Ion it seems that i have been ahead of you in daily points for a few days now and i just added the E1500 for 24/7 today (been crunching off and on for testing and overclocking)

    Lol, my very own personal electric bill was $21 but I was given a check of $380 by my Elec Company for power I sold to them. My parents are the ones reaping that $920 bill. I warned them that it would be like that since they weren't turning the heat off during the day. However due to how shitty my parents are, I have to use the $380 to help pay off the electric I didn't use.

    I just don't know how it can be that high. RAMMIE pays that much and he has a huge crunching farm! :eek: At least I think he said he paid that much.

    You shouldn't turn the heat off at all. You can turn it down a few degrees, but if you leave it off, it's cost more to get the house back to the proper temp than it does to maintain it.

    lol, somewhat true.

    Depends on how the house is built.
    I should know cause I went to school for "Building Trades" for 2 years...
    However, when I mean shut off the heat, I mean shut it off to rooms that won't be used for another 3-4 days... they don't do that which wastes lots of $$ in the long run.

    those old phenoms dont do well when it comes to oc'ing, so a few 100 mhz extra would ve fine imo

    I don't think the benchmarks are right. there showing my 2.6ghz X2 as being faster then the E1500@3ghz :wtf: when all of us know that the C2D based celly is a tad faster then the X2 clock for clock

    Keep in mind the multy is really low on those chips so you have to have a board that can pull off high bus speeds (300+) and the Phenoms didn't like high bus speeds. I had the 9100e its almost the same but has the older stepping. I could get it stable at 2.4ghz but 2.5ghz was instant crash. I really don't think the 9150e would be much better thats why i said 2.5ghz on stock volts would be about the best you could get maybe if your board can push the bus speed high and have a good chip you could get 2.7ghz@1.3v maybe

    guys, I've been down almost a day a cruncher. Using the space to fix a boat load of PC's I had here waiting. Should be back up by tomorrow.

    Has anyone seen a thieving gremlin? Seriously, it comes in the night and steals my OC stability.

    Either that or i'm slowly killing my computer. I mean, I know you shorten the lifespan of parts by overvolting them, but was never expecting to notice after just 14months. My PPD won't suffer too badly since it's no more than 200MHz drop.

    But am I right to be concerned or am I being a drama queen here?

    lol:roll::roll: (thieving gremlin):laugh:

    my Q9550 is overvolt cpu, ram, nb, fsb but is stable for almost 1 year now and I hope it remains stable

    My X2 4200+ has been overvolted since the first day i got it. Have been running it overclocked and overvolted for around a year and still rock solid...

    but degradation can happen fast sometimes. what volts are you running?

    460FSB with RAM at 1088
    CPU: 1.37 (1.36 in CPU-Z)
    CPU GTL 0/2: 0.675
    CPU GTL 1/3: 0.680
    CPU PLL: 1.6
    FSB Termination: 1.5
    NB: 1.4

    A year ago that was good for 4GHz (FSB470), but now FSB450 is the only stable speed for those settings :(

    EDIT:
    When you reach 100,000 Boinc points in Free-DC or Boincstats (700,000in WCG website), go to your control panel here in TPU and look for the option to have your crunching alias used

    EDIT: For the badge sorry, should have read more carefully there.

    I can easily see voltage playing a big role in your problem. On the rate your going your about on the rate of a 3year CPU life :ohwell: I could be wrong but from what i have read and seen it seems to add up to that. If you leave it at that voltage you will keep seeing your overclocks get lower and lower and sometime you will have to start underclocking then one day the CPU will just die.
    there folding stats so i can't help with the WCG stats sorry

    OW. that FSB Termination probably wasnt healthy to your proc. above 1.4 can proove deadly overtime... and will let degradation happen at a much higher rate:(

    On the subject of degradation I got to ask if my i7 is safe

    CPU volts 1.2v(stock 1.18v)RAM 1.61v(1.5v stock) everything else is stock. so would you say i am safe?
