    Shoot me a PM if you need help, I've had a bit more experience with my P7P55D Pro. I found that 4ghz was pretty easy, but ran hot. Higher was obtainable, but it was quickly reaching the limits of diminishing return :eek:

    I have opted to water cool both rigs so I can sleep at night bro, my room is just too loud with everything running. WCG/F@H/DNETC@HOME. Yeah, it got crazy!

    Don't blame you dude. It's why I run "silent" fans for the most part, other than what's on my CPU cooler/ directly behind it.

    I'm in the middle of replacing the fan on my AC L2 pro. The 92mm fan and I had a disagreement. :( I'm thinking a 120mmx20mm fan would be great. Plus it gives me an excuse to order stuff like a new mouse, etc.

    That's what I do, go buy one thing, but just feel the need to make the shipping worth it, so order a whole bunch of stuff :laugh:

    The sad part is when the power goes out and you sleep in the dark with no sound from any rig.

    Yeah, I have to have my rig on to sleep. Funny as that sounds. If I don't have it on I have to turn on a floor fan or something. As without white noise of some sort I can't sleep a wink. :(

    Yep think it becomes a habit. Noise is easy to accostum to. I had a room fan blowing all summer and despite the noise slept fine. It's the heat that gets you though. Too much dry air and you wake up with a headache or dry mouth.

    Same here. I need some fan noise, whether it's from my computer, or another fan. No noise = very little sleep = bad :shadedshu

    My i7 is back in the crunching camp. I got 16.3 points/hour for my first WU but the other part got 121.1. If I could get that (the 121) it would equal 23.250 PPD.:respect:

    Got my Dell 2001FP working today, $40 for the screen and $16 for it's power supply ain't bad at all. (Goodwill couldn't test it, so they labeled it low.)

    Anyways... I have a great condition Dell E173FP 17" LCD someone may purchase for $32 plus $10-15 for shipping. Power and VGA cable included.

    I just cutted off the IHS on my 939 3800+ x2 E6, in my secondary cruncher... before doing that, the cores were at 60/48, at 1.4 , now, they are at 52/50 under full load, at 1.47 so somewhat evened out, and better temps! :D The TIM that was under the IHS, had a half plastic,half laquer-like consistency, and was barely good, by any means.:laugh:

    Wow, that's incredible!
    That must be a nice change from the 17"
    I'm fed up with the 19" I have, so I'm ordering a 24" tonight :D

    Athlon did you run it before with 7 cores and then delete the work before finnishing it? I think that your CPU have to proof that it works OK before WGC sends out new WU. A workaround to wait a day (reached daily quota of 8 results) would be to delete WGC and make a new install.

    Edit: nice benchmark results btw. I only got 3759 / 12159 @ 4.095 GHz

    I use 6.11.4 (beta)

    I noticed my 1055T wasn't returning the norm.. So, I VNCed to it and found it had WU's hung saying UPLOADING.. I stopped the serves and restarted and everything is back to normal.

    I maybe going on a small vacation(4days), but I'll leave everything on! :toast:
