Anything is anything bro. Thank you.
More from the C2D (and it's doing better than I expected):
Still nothing from the P4, it's taking ~2x as long per WU as expected, so it probably won't be downloading any more (and reporting these) until tonight. Didn't get around to setting it to report immediately
Both i7's up and running full bore WCG dedicated to C4CW. Maybe a little over 9k PPD I'm hoping. Crunching on!
9k sounds about right. Awesome dude
that same pic came to mind when i read that
If i can get a AM2/AM2+/AM3 CPU i will have another cruncher up.would like for it to be a low watt quad core but not sure that will happen
I might have a X2 up for grabs after the 13th/15th area. I'll let you know. It'd be cheap.
if things keep going how they are now i will still be sitting on $0
but let me know anyways
It'd be like $20 shipped for you dude. IF you are still on hard times I'll only charge you shipping.
thanks for the help. It just sucks not having a job.
I was out of work for two weeks, I know your pain. I'm out $450 that I need very badly.
Very good chance I'll be getting a MSI GTX460 Cyclone tomorrow
I'd really like to get CP's GX2, but my dad, in the name of saving power, has decreed that I can't get a GPU with a TDP of over 175w or 2 6-pin PCIe power connectors. What BS :shadedshu
But $150 shipped AR for a GTX460 is just too good a deal to pass up....even though my GTX260 is almost good enough for anything I do
Guys, I'm posting this in a way I can copy and paste into the F@H Team thread/WCG Team Thread as well.
I've got a really really bad cold so since I usually sleep with a fan at night to help with the heat in my room, I am now unable to do so or I wake up not being able to even breathe. So for now I will be shutting down both rigs from any crunching/folding just for the night time so I can sleep without having to use the fan. They'll be back up every morning.
Hope you get well soon
Totally understandable CP, I hope you feel better soon
And a bit of an update on the rigs @ work:
Here's what the P4HT seems to be averaging:
And the C2D:
This C2D takes significantly longer per WU than mine does, but also gets significantly more points. Strange
Sorry I have crap stats but rig restructuring here and due to running costs the duallies are being retired (again).
But I'll be here til just shy of my personal mil.....only right that I go home to actually pass the threshold.
Oh and one of my rigs took itself walkabout to Climate Prediction which has slowed me down some.
I should have seen that one coming!
GL, definitely get them if you can. I love my pair and I'm sure you won't be dissapointed.
Take care man. If you're up for trying a non-prescription cure.. have some whiskey in hot milk with honey. It tastes better than you think and will have you singing and dancing in no time
Not much longer until you hit 1mil....and you're approaching it reasonably quickly!
Well, the one that was $150 AR is sold out....and the next cheapest one is over $175--more than I want to pay.
Looking more & more like I might get a GTS 450
They should still be very decent performers, certainly for the power they use.
why not get the EVGA 460 768mb for $170 and free shipping
EVGA 768-P3-1360-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB ...
That's really a bit more than I want to spend. My parents are already giving me hell about wanting to spend this much of my money on a new GPU....they think I should just get a 9600GT :shadedshu
And $150 seems like a limit that they would be more OK with.....if you can find a GTX460 for sub-$150 AR, I'm super interested, but if not, I'll probably just go w/ a GTS450, or, if I can convince my dad to let me get a high-power GPU, CP's GX2.
WCG is now set up on the PhII X4 955. Stock clocks ATM due to shitty HSF. Should be on ~24/6
Thanks guys. I actually ended up shutting the rigs down for five minutes, then felt bad and cranked them all back up.
I should have the first set of WUs from the X4 955 within a couple hours
On a less positive note, WCG may be running low on C4CW WUs, when the X4 955 picked up WUs it got about half a dozen of those, then said there were no more of those available, and got some other types
Damn, it's that challenge Time to re stock!
