I'm kind of jealous...because I love the heat but at the same time you have no AC so I feel for you. Electricity is included in my rent so I can run my AC's all day when it get's hot and keep the crunchers going. Hang in there CP
yeah they have been painting the house, today was the final touch up but they require the doors open so we turn off the a/c. They are done, both rigs are back up, but boy did it get hot quick in here.
its hot as hell in the room but outside its cool and raining and i am about to have to run in it
are we in the same country? sounds like the US finally got their weather control system to run!
Ya and they better shut it down or we'll be headed for another ice age!!!
it wasn't that bad. Kinda refreshing. ran 2 miles in it then went lifting for about 2hrs. sore as hell right now and have to do it all again on friday then monday(it keeps going like that)
Do WCG deadlines start once the work unit is downlaoded, or once the work unit started being computed?
Downloaded. If you look at the tasks that are ready to start (not running), they already have deadlines.
is the difference in points big between my email@example.com vs 3.9ghz?
I am thinking about dropping it down alittle so i can lower the voltage and temps also drop 10-12c when at lower speeds/voltage so less heat dump in the room.
dont really think so
back at 3.6ghz it is.. I love the OC profiles on this board. I have them set for many speeds and settings. Makes overclocking almost too easy lol.
What kind of world have we come to when switching from 3.9ghz to 3.6ghz only takes 10 seconds and from 3.6ghz to 4.2 also takes 10 seconds... Only selecting 1 thing in the bios... Lazy people
sorry about my sarcastic rant. I'm alittle delusional
you will loose around 300ppd a day when running 24/7 according to ion's ppd calc
thanks. I think i can live with that
i hope so
It cracked the 90s here the other day and my i7 crunched on and only hit a max of 62C which I think is great. I will be breaking the rig down for a serious cleaning, new thermal paste, and possibly an upgrade to the fans on the Mega
We've had some cloudy skies today so the rigs have been on and at full force for like two days almost now, folding as well. As long as I'm not home it's ok. When I'm home, I just can't take the heat
dont you have AC ?
Guys I'm posting here first. once I receive my x6 and new board, I'm selling my 965 and UD5. I wanted to keep as a cruncher but right now I can't remain with that as a priority as I still needed some parts to get it going. I can better use the cash as I got tons of stuff coming my way now that I need to take care of.
That is the below CPU and board, PM with your offers. Not putting a price here yet.
Phenom II X4 965 C3
Gigabyte 790FX UD5-FXT
How to break into a case?
I just got two oldish IBM desktop computers from my school today. They're P4 systems, that's all I know. Anyways, they appear to be in pretty bad condition... the hard drive was just rattling around in the one, I just reached in and grabbed it out of there from the 5.25 bay which had no optical drive or cover. I should be able to at least try to put them back together, or salvage parts, but... there's these locks on the back of the case, probably to prevent the cover from coming off, because there are no screws and I can't pull the cover off... is there any way I can break into the case save physically cutting it open? Drill out the lock perhaps?
Do you have a friend with a Dremel? Plasma cutter? Big ass drill?
