I tried running my X4 955 @ 3ghz...temps were only 2C lower so I said w/e, I'll stay at 3.4
He's in Miami, it's hot there IMO.
Edit- He beat me to the punch.
From 3.4 Ghz to 3.0 Ghz its about 2-3ºc for me, but any bit helps. At night its not an issue but in the day it gets a bit warm in my room. I am also considering having another rig or two in the future. So that's one thing I keep in mind
It's hot here too, it's been ~85 every day for the past week
Well, that's understandable, it's hot in my room regardless, so I might as well have things at 3.4ghz
In that case, why not 4 GHz?
Well, at 3.4ghz, I'm already at 57c in the afternoons, so I don't want to get any hotter. And it takes 1.46v on my X4 955 to get 3.9ghz (4ghz = instant fail), which is obviously even hotter. And the new 8800GTS is easily twice as hot as the HD5670 it replaced, so yeah
Hey guys I have my G/f's p9500 up and crunching!
Nice, that should do something like 800-850 PPD (I get about 700 on my P8600)
Your think'n an Intel Mobile processor bro.. this is a AMD P9500 x4 desktop processor. I'm hoping for 1000 to 1200 ppd. Actually 974.29mhz by a very renowend estimator! The "Simple WCG PPD Estimator" by a very good friend of mine.. You!..
Bro i'm still very impressed with your estimator! A1 product of 2009!
It does work like a charm
Yeah, I was thinking of the Core 2 Duo Mobiles...my dad just got a new laptop with a Core 2 Duo Mobile P9500, so yeah
Very true bro!
Those's mobile chips are nice! I have an older T7200 2GHz C2D that I still think is very fast. But the newer penryn chips are kickass! A buddy of mine just got a new thinkpad with the p8600 and he likes it a lot!
My P8600 is in a Thinkpad T400, and I love it. Battery life is very good (3.5 hours), it's cool (~55C after 48 hours of WCG), quiet (except the fan rattles a bit), and was very cheap (I got mine for $675).
BTW, I'm back at 100% CPU usage (I dropped it to 85% a couple days ago), I converted a 92mm fan I pulled out of a Dell a while back into a fan shroud, and it's dropped my temps an average of 3c, even with the fan running slower! Win!! (all for ~15 minutes of work)
Is that one of those strange 3 pin delta fans? I recently worked on a P4 with one of those.
It was a Nidec with 4 pins, loud as hell, I could easily hear it from the other end of the house. But it kept temps ~7c lower than the Xiggy fan. However, I couldn't stand the noise, so I gutted it, turned it into a shroud, and now temps are ~3c lower than with the stock Xigmatek setup. I don't know what model Dell this came out of, my uncle gave it to me a while back, but I do recognize it as a Dell fan
But yea I have my T7200 @ 100% and it's smoken hot!... lol
Thanks Bro! I got to do something to catch up with your 5 i7's!
Don't we all? (except for d.law)
sweet actually broke 10k yesterday
is somebody crunching for POS? b/c ima gonna crunch for someone too when i hit 1 mil
I'm pretty sure he has D.Law's 980x
Chomes also has the potential. I also do believe d.law has the 980x crunching for POS
