    Well now that both rigs seem to be running stable and good, Today i had multiple internet issues. I am about as frustrated as a person can get right now. I hope they are fixed for good!

    Woke up to having both rigs chugging along fine, it's just too much at once I'm getting really tired of this bullshit!

    I couldn't sleep lastnight so i got up and repasted my NB heatsink(the removable part) and was sure to spread it good into a thin layer. The NB went from 63c load to 51c :eek: i consider that a good drop

    I saw some drop in temps when I repasted my EVGA X58 a while back. The paste on it was nasty and a lot!

    Looks like I'm going to have a nice little P4 rig up and crunching here pretty soon, at the moment it has a junk cely 2.2Ghz in it, but I'm planning on getting a decent P4 with HT for it.

    The Mobo is a MSI PT880 Neo V2. Don said he's going to hook me up with some more RAM for it, as it's only got a 256MB stick in it right now. :laugh:

    I do need to buy a new PSU and a case for it thou. That's not too much money thou. :D

    Got home to find my X6 off, i7 had gone off too because of a power outage, but I guess since lately I've been messing around a lot with the X6 due to the issues I've had I guess I forgot to set it to power on after power fail. So some downtime today as well :banghead:

    lol! boinc is unable to fetch work for me on the main rig! (no work available in all projects)
    before it did that, it loaded about 8 WUs that had working times over 120000h
    and produced load from -1104% until +170% (normal range: 1-100 :D)
    after a while it sorted out its own wrong units, but it does not load new ones!
    seems there was a WU fuckup again!:eek:
