    Not sure if everyone's seen this already, but the Clean Energy Project - Phase 2 has finally come to Windows!

    http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/about_us/viewNewsArticle.do?articleId=144

    It has more requirments than the usual projects to run, namely larger WU size (you will need good internet connection and a good amount or RAM). Check the following link to make sure you're fine: http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/help/viewTopic.do?shortName=minimumreq

    I believe it is also an opt-in project, so if you can/want to participate you'll need to login to your WCG account and select the project manually from the project list.

    Thanks buddy. I had selected that as my only primary project when it was still in beta in case I missed the annoucement and see that today on one machine I have one non-beta WU. It's still listed on the project sys req. page as being only for Linux, but I assume that will be updated shortly.

    Thanks again for the heads up. :toast: :respect:

    Hey guys, started crunching again on my TPU account. I don't have the firepower I used to, but I've got my little clarkdale going 24/7. Should be good for around 2200 boinc or so.

    Been hanging around the forum more and just thought I'd start this back up. :toast:

    At last my extra 20 treads (80.6 GHz in total) are running for WCG. Should be good for +12k PPD. We are going for 2nd place.:toast:

    It was a free rig, I couldn't say no. :p Now I just need that quad from Twilyth (was it him?) the Q9550 I believe. :)

    Totally...although I'd still probably say no :p

    I'd probably only get it if I could find somewhere to stash it....and the school probably wouldn't want it :p

    When my mom gets around to replacing her computer, I'll have my old Celeron 430 crunching in there... another ~270PPD (as it rarely ever gets used).

    If anyone's got some parts they feel like donating, I just need memory and a 775 motherboard. The machine is currently running a half-dead socket A system (board has swollen caps but still works for now) with a Sempron 3000+ and 2x512mb DDR400.

    Damn,

    After finding my 3rd rig locked up, according to the SMART test on speedfan, the HDD has "read error" So this HDD is completely borked? Nothing wants to open once it goes into windows.

    Well, if you can run and use crystaldiskinfo, and it says anything but "good" or "excellent", then its new drive time.

    I don't know about that. My Celeron 430 got around 250 on the best days... I have a 2nd core now, but it's clocked a bit lower (2130MHz as opposed to 2.4GHz).

    the core architecture nets faaaar more performance per clock than the netburst architecture ;)
    i was suprised to see, the e2140 can even slightly beat my 3800+ @ 2.7, with 2.3 :D

    while this is true the Celeron 430 is based on the core(or core 2) architecture as is the e2140

    Yeah, they're both Core 2 based.
