    I agree, I got about 70ºc with the damn Apogee GTz, in the day without the a/c while im at work it hits mid 70's. For now I lowered from 4GHz to 3.7 GHz at 1.28v. Temps stay low 60's. I will be getting a torture rack soon and hopefully with better cooling this block will be slightly more efficient as everything else around it will stay cooler. I need a damn HK block!

    Wow out of stock everywhere. The only 1366 HK in stock is one with the delrin top. I need a huge chunk of copper :D

    Just joined. Thought I might as well as fighting cancer is my priority since I was diagnosed at the end of January with lung cancer and started my chemo and radiotherapy a week ago. Still 24 more radiotherapy sessions to go and one more chemo session.

    Installing BOINC on a Domain Controller.

    Both can be found here: http://calbe.dw70.de/boinc_red.html


    To install...
    1) Create a Program Files (e.g. C:\Program Files\BOINC) folder.
    2) Extract the downloaded files in the zip to your newly created folder.
    2a) If you are running x64 follow this guide where it says "Scheduler request failed: problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?)"
    3) Run boincmgr.exe.
    4) Add the project "World Community Grid."
    5) Enter your WCG user name and password.
