i can get both cpu for $160
hmm then this mobo then? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128423&cm_re=ud3r-_-13-128-423-_-Product

Like i said on the other thread, its great to have friends that work in electronic store
Edit: @above, very nice. When it come wat to buy for i7 build im such a n00b
Hey, any one getting a lot of computer crashes when crunching? I've gotten 4 crashes in as many days, never usually happens at all. I only crunch on the rice project, but is anyone else getting any problems? Gunna stop crunching just to see if the problem improves (then at least i'll know if it's at all related to it)
hows your temps when its crunching?
Nope, until today I've run exclusively RICE for a while, and had no issues at all. It may be that you don't have a good enough PSU, I was having issues with random reboots until I upgraded to a 400w PSU (I did have a 350w, which apparently wasn't enough)
Temps have always been around 45-50 depending on the core. I've ran WCG for weeks at a time without issue so I don't think it's related to temps or to the power draw. Unless it's the PSU dying.
Hmmmmm, nothing in the event log either. Just says i had to do an unauthorised shutdown.
Is it possible to hook any of us up, or at least the other pinoy crunchers ?
got np hooking up ppl @ all, just gotta wait another x4-6month before next cpu purchase. im trying not to get my friend in trouble. Microcenter keeps track what ther employee buys, i guess its been abuse before
Ohhhh, I see. That makes sense, I could see how that could get out of hand. Maybe by then the 6 core offerings from AMD and Intel will be more in my budget
woot woot just passed 50000 points today
good job don, keep it up
Looks like I will be bringing my Athlon II X4 630 online in the next few days while it waits to be purchased I think I will have to OC (I think I finally understand how to OC non BE AMDs )
Sorry CP, but I'm going the other way. After more than 5 years of crunching for various dc projects, I am cutting back. For now, I'm still going to be crunching wcg, just at a reduced rate.
I'm done with F@H, have sold most of my cards already.
Just time for me to take a break and control my addiction to building more rigs for crunching.
So what do you still plan on having for WCG?
I'm also done with F@H, I got tired of all of the heat the GPU(s) produced, I must say the decreased heat output is quite nice
Not sure. I will definitely keep my main i7 rig, but don't know if I will continue crunching with it. I will have a couple of other systems for sale soon. They are older set-ups. P35 and P45 boards with dual core cpu's.
As for for F@H, the new wu's were driving my temps through the roof, but thats not the only reason for me not running it any more.
I can understand that bro, I get fed up sometimes with just two rigs, but I still have a long way to go. Having multiple rigs can be crazy, maintenance, heat, power. Just stay in touch man
With every slow hour that passes, I get closer to having my Athlon II x2 240. I've heard some models can do 3.6GHz at stock voltage. My board can do 250FSB, but not much more than that. The cpu has a multiplier of 14, so that's 3.5GHz. What do you think my chances are that I'll be able to run it that far on stock voltage?
I'd say pretty decent. I have my Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.4ghz undervolted, it did 3.6ghz at stock. So if you have to increase the voltage, it definitely wouldn't be by much
I am working on clocking the Pentium D alittle bit. looks like 3.3ghz is going to be about the best on this shitty board.
I'm almost willing to bet my left nut that you can get 3.5ghz on stock volts if not lower
Good luck dude!
BTW, now I have over 6 months with current estimates before you overtake me I expect that to drop (not because of a decrease here, preferably an increase there)
