    Test are all done.
    Both the harddrive and the mobo pasted with flying colors.
    I Failed the test myself.

    When I changed powersuppies I forgot to plug in the pump for the H50.

    I ran her like that for over 5 minutes untill I ran speedfan and temps over 80c, checked bois and new she was too hot so I thought I killed my pump with the old psu.

    Started a post to ask about the H50 and bad psu's.

    And as always just when you ask for help it hits you, rebuild, redo you're last few steps and that was when I saw the line from the pump.

    Long story short. The 955 is down. The good news is that on Thursday it will be another 1055t and it will have a new Corsair 650:toast:

    Crunch on:toast:

    hey guys

    i haz a sad.

    i had to sell the rig:( , due to private problems, or maybe not problems but reasons

    me and the GF is moving in together, so there is not room for it in the beginning + im starting to study in august, so i also needed a laptop for that, and i really dont game anymore, other than some l4d and mw1,

    so i sold the rig today, and within 14 days i should have a new lappie, waiting on the holiday pay to get through.

    but it will be crunching, but it wont be throwing out so big numbers though.

    this is the lappie http://www.komplett.dk/k/ki.aspx?sku=597129
    it has a nice i5,/dualcore with HT, so i think it will produce a good number for a lappie.

    but i will be back when winter comes with a cruncher again, but for now i have to concentrate on my own stuff, and the school,

    i wont be leaving TPU though, i will still be here to annoy you guys;) but no hard crunching from me as of today

    i hope you guys understand.

    Glad to hear that your still around blkhogan. Good luck to your father. I know how hard dealing with that kind of stuff can be. (I've lost two family members to cancer in the past five years.)

    Well once you have it setup to use 100% of all available cores, I think you should restart the client, then run the CPU benchmark and it should rec all 6 cores :toast:

    Once I had to actually reinstall the client, but this has worked for me since then.

    I know you probably already did this CP but I had to flash the bios on my buddie's new mobo to accept his 1055T....it only recognized 4 cores and was running at 800mhz :eek:

    I have a question. I haven't tried it yet , but I have a Pentium 4 2.2Ghz machine running Windows Server 2003. Will it run the Boinc client just like any other os? Is there anything I should know?

    It should run BOINC... just not sure if it would be worth it on a P4 2.2... the highest I've ever seen on my Celeron 430 isn't even 300...

    Anything is worth it even if it only returns 1 or 2 results a day. Right now my server isn't really doing anything and my room mate uninstalled the client from his machine :( so how else am I going to catch BazookaJoe??? :laugh:

    I let you know :)
