    My dad goes in for one of his knee replacements today guys, wish him luck. I'm about to leave to go to the hospital to be there with him.

    @Randal: Wish him all the best Randal :toast:
    @Kai: Congrats on the 10yr runtime, and the recent kickass job on PPD and badges. :respect:
    (gonna need to stop this habit before I confuse this with twitter :laugh:)

    Found out the other day that my BOINC on my dedicated cruncher/folder was set to pause if over 25% CPU use by other apps. Seems with the two GTX460's folding and server duties that was quite often. Fixed now. That i7 is back at 4-5K PPD running a little warmer than Dave managed with it. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the input on the X6's, I'm starting to think of making a rig with one. Will see if I'd be allowed to use it at work first (insurance stuff), as I don't have any space in my room for more crunchers. If I can't then maybe I'll swap one i7 920 with an i7 980X/970 instead.

    Also... damn flu has got me too :mad:

    Thanks :)

    First thing I always do when setting up BOINC is setting it not to suspend for stuff like that & enabling other things that give better PPD.

    My PPD is probably going to be back to ~5-6k starting shortly, GREASEMONKEY has moved his rigs on. Very nice while they lasted, thanks again! :respect:

    Sorry you have the flu, that sucks :(

    So it looks like my i7 went off for some reason while I was at school, but it's back up now :)

    Probably my parents :rolleyes:

    It's done 2 weeks of nonstop crunching @ these clocks/volts before, so I doubt that it's a stability issue

    my i7 is at 3.5ghz and is running 64c do you think i should push it alittle more(i know 3.6-3.8ghz would be easy to get)?

    also keep in mind that i am using mismatched fans on the cooler right now(i am using 1 Silverstone low speed and 1 Tt low speed)

    I don't see why you shouldn't go for 3.8ghz. That's what I'm doing, temps are ~70c, w/ 2 low-speed mismatched fans.

    Lol, she doesn't check anything but her thread. Plus her mom already told her. Disadvantage of buying from her mom's work.

    Hammer, they don't seem to be sending any WUs ATM, so that will do little good for now :(

    Once all of this is done, I'm going to up my buffer from 2 to 3.5 days I think, my C2D is dangerously close to running out of work :(
