    LOL!! For some reason this comes to mind:

    "Welcome everyone to Cruncher's Anonymous. My name is Shaun"

    @CP

    Got my 200k a day ago! :) Wish I still had that GTS. I miss folding too. :ohwell:

    +1 I highly agree with that. When i first started crunching i only had a X2 4850e@3.1ghz crunching for the team then i started adding and adding then downsized but still just as much crunching power

    What started as only a X2 ended up going to a i7@3.8ghz,X4 9500,E1500@3ghz,X2 4200@3.1ghz,P4HT@3ghz,p4@2.7ghz
    as you can see it gets addicting easy...

    Way addicting, I started with just a Pentium M laptop, and now I have a Core 2 Duo, a Core 2 Quad, a Phenom II X4, and various single cores all crunching. And I dream of new WCG rigs to build. At least it's a good thing to get addicted to.

    I will have to suggest against this. Even a 9600GT, which can be had for ~$50 used, will do substantially better PPD (~3,000 typically), but use 1/2 to 1/3 of the power. Or an 8800GT/9800GT, which will do over 5.5k PPD on good WUs when OCed, and runs far cooler than the 2900XT. The 2900XT would really be the work choice to start off with if you are worried about heat/power consumption

    Well I know, but it's what I got now. If I can take the heat from that then no worries. Also just by starting to fold I'll have some motivation to upgrade whih is what I need :)

    Ooh, a new badge:
    [​IMG]

    I'm switching everything over as we speak, I'll put the Sapphire in RICE on hold until I get at least a ruby in this :toast:
    I think I have a severe case of badge-obsession :roll:

    EDIT: I just read the article, I guess I'll leave RICE in the mix so I don't have times with no work to do

    think that q6600 is priced a little too high, in denmark where hardware is expensive they go for 100$ used.

    other than that it look very good:toast:

    Got Server 2008 and BOINC installed BUT it only runs 8 jobs. The rig has 4 Dual Core CPUs with HT. This server is not going to give me pie. The prediction is 10-12 hours per job. The RAM usage is 26% of 2 GB (slow) RAM and the CPU usage is 100 %. 0.5 % is used for the "modem". Anyone have a clue how to find the HT cores? Run two instances? I'm a total n00b when it comes to servers.

    Open up task manager. How many graphs are there? If HT is enabled, there should be 16, otherwise there should be 8. If HT is disabled, go into the BIOS and enable it. Go to the BOINC options and make sure that it is set to use 100% of processors and 100% of CPU time. If this doesn't work, we may be able to work something out via PM/Teamviewer :toast:

    Thanks.

    HT is enabled in BIOS, BOINC set to 100 and 100%. Was before, is now. I "only" have 8 cores in task manager.

    Correction - it have 4 GB.

    So you only have 8 graphs in Task Manager?
    Download CPU-Z (cpuid.com/cpuz.php), open it up, and see how many CPUs it says you have. You should have 4 CPUs, each with 2 cores/4 threads

    Yes only 8 graphs. Z-CPU (the 32 bit version since the 64 didn't work!?) are wrong I think. It says it is a socket 604 (603 accoding to my documentation) and that there are 4 processors (ok) each with one core and two threads. It thinks it is a Prestonia, but it is a Xeon MP 2.7 Gallatin according to boot up and documentation.

    It is LOUD and a poor performer but cheap so I give a try.

    If you wouldn't mind setting up TeamViewer and then PM'ing me the link, I'll see what I can do for you. It's totally secure, Buck Nasty used it to help someone set up F@H
