    Thanks, I'm hoping to get some consistent, if low, points out of it :)
    The heat output of that must be ferocious (and I bet it's loud as hell)....but enjoy :laugh:

    Still....I've had 2 servers, and they were both alarmingly loud. I got rid of both of them because they were just too loud :eek:

    Yeah, I've fixed a lot of like even regular lower end dell PC's and such that start up really loud and then quite down. Pointless if you ask me. But the one in that video was REALLY loud.

    The Core Duo has already turned in some results and it looks like it's going to be right at 500 PPD. Not a bad add :)

    Gladly, and she was very enthusiastic about getting it running. She asked me how she could help more, so I may be getting more of the computers in her house going :toast:

    Her laptop?

    Lenovo Thinkpad T60, 2GB DDR2, a 100GB 5400RPM drive, Ubuntu 10.10 x86 (she loves! Ubuntu)

    I'm not sure what other computers they have :eek:

    OK, sounds good :)

    I don't know what the others are, but I think they have a few more semi-modern Thinkpads. She didn't know either :ohwell:

    I hope. I'm not sure if they're as excited about WCG as she is....but she said she'll try to convince them ;)

    And then I may be moving the i7 to somewhere where it can crunch/fold basically 24/7 at the expense of only ~10 hours a day on the X4. Still should be better overall....we'll see :toast:

    Sure does :)

    It would definitely be odd to have an i7 w/ several GPUs at a friend's house just for crunching, but it could be cool. And I'm pretty sure that he would be interested in it...I would. The X4 would be plenty for daily use, and I could always upgrade it to an X6. Probably wouldn't cost much more than $50 after the sale of the X4 :)

    That would be the plan, I probably wouldn't be OCing much (if at all) anyways ;)

    Or maybe I'd just get a better mobo so I could add more GPUs for FAH, we'll see :)

    Yeah 1055 is the way to go for dedicated AMD crunchers. :)
