    Yeah bro, I got all my files needed saved on a drive so when I do a fresh install I just go down the list installing stuff LOL

    I think this is a WR. Installing windows from scratch, and every software I need including BOINC in just under 30 minutes! Woot Woot!

    Check the authenticity of your installation medium if it's "acquired" form your Internet friends.

    Ok up and crunching for TPU. Going to have to start over with my overclock, it didn't like WCG, kept crashing so its back to stock settings for now.

    requesting tips or tricks for smooth crunching.

    Looks like I am going to need a new sig.

    There's not a whole lot to be done. Just go in the options and set it to run at 100% without restrictions (things like when the computer is in use). Also, I personally have it set to connect once a day and download enough work units to last 3 days, and I cap the up/down speeds so it doesn't choke my bandwidth when it uploads/downloads.

    Dude, visit this thread, you'll have anything you need to know in there, more than what anybody can teach bro. Just set the usage to 100% and let it rip!

    Got the main rig running fine now, my 212+ was dusty and needed cleaning, lowered my temps down enough to OC my processor to 3.01Ghz.

    Oh, and got the house AC running now so it needs a password, take that roommate! :D

    I never change those settings. I set cpu "number of processors in %", "usage in %". I set both to 100%. Then I change additional work buffer to 2 days on fast processors and slower ones to 1 day.

    Nice addition Mindweaver!

    Tim, are you planning on building another rig around the old X2, or just retiring it? Maybe spend an extra $40 and get an AII X4?

    Checked out the new Clean Energy Project that SupremeOverlord mentioned in the 'stones thread. It says it requires a minimum of 1GB of RAM:

    [​IMG]

    Looks like if you get all your threads with the same project at any one time you will need 8GB on i7's, 6GB on Hex's, 4GB on Quads, 2GB on dualies. Unless BOINC is clever enough to queue WU's that don't have enough RAM to run. :confused:

    @ Kielx

    I ran my new 955 build with only 512mg of ram. One work unit reported that it was waiting for ram. I went to my junk room and pulled 2gig from an old board and all is good now.

    Short story shorter, Yes I think Boinic is clever.:)

    Crunch on and chrunch hard.:toast:
