    Did you get a 1055T or a 1090T? This 1055T I have kicks ass! I overclocked it to 4Ghz first try and It's been crunching strong, and hasn't past 37c. I don't see any reason to get a 1090T other than for your e-peen you know?..lol or you just have the extra cash... :toast:

    but.. Yea i would say check your BIOs and make sure you have it set to power back on after an outage. :rockout:

    I got a 1090T, it was the CPU Paul was offering in the combo, I haven't tried overclocking yet. I have some issues with the stupid issue with my computer locking and restarting then saying my boot mgr is missing. I go into the BIOS and my OS HDD is not first in the boot priority list any more, my 1TB is. It's driving me nuts and I've tried just about everything!

    And the rig is set to come back on after power outage :D

    I'm glad to hear that. I just built a rig for my friend with the 1055T and he doesn't even overclock, I soooooo want to teach him!! LOL. My next build will be six core AMD and the 10055T is a nice price! :) EDIT: What mobo and cpu cooler are you using?

    Oh, a funky bios that re-orders boot priority....ugh :shadedshu


    On a brighter note, I got the boinc client reinstalled on my roomies AMD X2 250 3.0Ghz Rig so time to go for platinum!!! :rockout:

    It's been doing it with a few BIOS's, with the Quad as well. Remember I'm not using the CH 4 yet. This is weird, that issue is driving me insane!

    Don't know about raid setups to advise but had my share of bios resetting boot priority...is Drive A:/ disabled....damn......I feel for you.

    Question: Is this only a phenomena with your new 1090T?


    EDIT: PRESS F10 TO SAVE!!! j/k FFS!!!! CP, You know better for crying out loud....I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for you all.

    I had some issues and had to reinstall Windows, does it take a few days to start picking up pace?

    Yeah it does, in a couple days your production will normalize as WUs pending validation are processed.

    Nice, what do you have your X6 clocked to? I'd expect it gets about the same PPD as the i7 clock-for-clock, right?

    Jellyrole made post 9310 in this thread, and it clearly says "Banned" under his name.

    So far stock 3.0 GHz. Right now I can't really say as neither rig has stabled out. My i7 had stability issues because of new RAM, so I just loaded defaults on it till I have more time to fiddle with the new RAM and get it stable.

    The X6 is the rig that I keep having that Missing Boot MGR issue like everyday. So far it's been going over two days stable now and all I did differently is not open AIM? :wtf: So the rigs should stable out in about another day or so and I can really see the numbers then.

    As far as jelly, not sure what happened, he sent me a PM saying he got banned but he'll still be crunching and that's it.

    So are you still crunching on the PhII X4, or has that been sold to fund the X6?
    I was considering an X6 instead of the i7, but with a new mobo and RAM it was going to be about the same price for an X6/i7 and I decided I'd rather have the lower power consumption of the i7 vs 6 real cores

    X4 was sold, I'll eventually get a X6 for the GB UD5 board and put it back to crunch.

    Aha :)
    I've loaned my X4, mobo, CPU, DDR2, and HSF to a friend who only had a laptop since otherwise it would just sit in a box....although I might sell it at some point, I'm considering a car at some point (I've been offered one for free, but it needs work)

    You can use the money from the rig to throw some money on the car and start fixing it up :)

    That's what I'm thinking of doing...I'd have to get it here from Kentucky first. It is still drivable (a '92 Ford Escort), but there are numerous things wrong with it (the extents of which I don't even know).

    I may spend some of the money I'm getting from my summer job on it, since I can't DC any more there's not really anything else to do with it :rolleyes:

    I would try to see exactly what is wrong with it, depending on how much cash has to be invested on it to get it running good again it might or might not be worth it.

    Well, that I know of the AC doesn't work, cruise control doesn't work, and the interior lights don't work. There may be more problems since it's been used for 18 years at this point, but not that I know of. The front bumper is damaged where my grandfather ran it into something, but I don't think it suffered any structural damage :)
