    So I'm still working on the OC a bit guys, it was stable for like 4 hours yesterday and then BSOD, I assume because it didn't have enough voltage, so I'm trying a tad more and we'll see how it goes, think this outta do it thou. I have it set at 1.35V, should do the trick as my brother is rocking an overclock of 3.2Ghz on 1.4V on almost the same CPU as mine.

    So the new voltage seems to be working, been stable all day yesterday and last night. Other than when we had a power outage. (One of those small ones where the power goes off and back on a few moments later.)

    Yeah so from around 11 am Friday to sometime this morning (Sunday) the little pavilion I have running upstairs produced a whopping 137 BOINC points. I'm pretty sure it's going to be worth it. Not to mention that it's always 90F up there. Even though I have my Ultra Kaze blowing onto the side of it, I'm surprised it hasn't overheated.

    Those are single core though... I would be much more concerned about running BOINC on a quad core with 512MB ram... that's 3 more work units running at the same time than you. 512MB should be fine for one thread.

    137 BOINC points? Remember, the results don't instantly post once you send them in (well, they will be there, but they have to be validated first). Still... 137 points is still pretty low... my Athlon XP 2200+ throws out (slightly) more than that. How are you checking this? It takes BOINC some time to get "up to speed". If your rig is dishing out ~800PPD like mine, the BOINC manager program won't actually say 800 until some weeks ahead.

    I was just looking at the device statistics in My Grid. I'll take a look at it after it updates again though. It ran for about 48 hours and is only showing 3 hours runtime (even though it updated and got the information from it this morning).

    Apparently the E6550 is staying offline, I've been told no about putting WCG back on it :eek: :(

    Mine puts out about 1k less per day at same clocks than my i7. However keep in mind my i7 is a dedicated cruncher while my X6 is not. Might pause while some gaming or stuff.
