    Well, I've OC'd back to 3.0Ghz again guys, I had it at 2.8Ghz for a while, then 2.9Ghz. But 3.0Ghz just seems so much more.... Even. Ya know? ;)

    Very much so :)

    I'm currently running @ 3,833ghz, it just seems wrong some how :p

    I really want 4,0ghz, but I can't get that stable with reasonable temps with the weather we've been having here. Maybe this winter :cool:

    Well I already paid $100 for the H50 and fans....don't really want to go get another cooler after that :p

    And I'm sure I can 'deal' with 'only' 3.8ghz for now :laugh:

    Yeah, but you could buy one of his coolers, and then sell the H50 to make up for your losses. Oh and have better cooling. ;)

    I think I'm fine as-is, but thanks for mentioning it ;) :)

    And I'm actually considering moving my i7 to an ITX setup, so the H50 may be very useful (a lot of cases I'm looking at won't support a tower cooler but will support a H50) ;)

    :confused: :confused:

    "huge" and PC-A05S don't exactly go together. IIRC it's the smallest ATX case on the market ;) :p

    But it is backwards ;)

    I like it, it's reasonably small and fits ATX, but I have the urge to go ITX. And for about $225 I could have a good ITX case and H55 board, and I could re-use everything else. And then maybe put an i3 or w/e in the Asus board and use a spare HDD, GPU, and RAM to build another cruncher @ some point ;)

    It always looks big in your photos, I've never bothered to look at one of those types of cases besides what people post. :ohwell:

    :rolleyes:

    The Rocketfish was huge, I sold it to buy the PC-A05S (RF just too big). But the A05 might be too big now as well :laugh:

    Not sure if ITX is practical for an overclocker and habitual hardware tinkerer. But many uATX cases are larger than my A05S, so that would be a silly change :p

    You can't!:laugh:

    I believe the team captain has to put his foot in, so to speak, for the team.

    If CP agrees as I think he will then I'll put all my rigs onto C4CW.:)

    --
    I thought I'd clarify that joining the challenge is the team captain's job but if you want to run only C4CW then click on the My Projects link on your members page and select only C4CW.

    Has any of you looked at our threats list lately? I know we are doing great, but we need to bump it up just a bit. Therefore I have asked for help and it should be coming shortly. There's already a few cores added. :respect:

    Let's at least try to eliminate the more immediate threat.

    Just C4CW ;)

    I'm doing C4CW on everything other than the PentM, it doesn't have enough mem to do that. I'll see if I have some more this evening :)
    Damn!!!! :mad: :(

    I have another couple K probably coming this Friday, but not really much else I can do. Other than running the i7 more, which won't be popular with my parents :(

    EDIT: Almost 4.5k today according to BS :)

    Nah, jut go to projects & make sure that C4CW is the only one selected ;)

    It won't run on half a gig or less of memory (system) which is a bit strange since the c4cw executable only uses ~70m (far less than FAAH, which oddly enough will run on my PentM system)

    But you should be fine, I have 2GB in my i7 and it runs 8 of them nicely enough with ~800m to spare ;)

    www.worldcommunitygrid.org -> My Grid -> My Projects -> then make sure that only "Computing for Clean Water" is selected ;)

    Then click Apply and your rigs will only get these WUs :) ;)
