    Window is fully open, just won't open any further. Temp outside is -4C but with only my system specs rig crunching and folding room temp is about 24C. No condensation except windows as a result of that difference.

    After all the ideas posted on my thread about my farm I am hoping it will be possible to maintain decent temps in room. If it stays below 30c ambient in summer I'll be happy.

    Hey guys, how do i check my stats like with EOC on folding? The p4 has been crunching for probably 4-5 days now and i'd like to see what kind of progress it's making and if it's even worth it to crunch on it.

    It might take a few days before the full picture is clear. Weekend doesn't always give the right numbers either.

    Edit: If you're getting i7 for F@H, what are you doing with your Q6600 rig? Because if you can use that for WCG, that should easily do above 2K

    He sold that to me. The Q6600 will power my dedicated folding/crunching rig. The Q6600 will crunch.

    Looks complicated LOL. I'll read through it later and see if I can get it going. I can't even get it to boot from the USB stick now, I just restarted to complete a driver installation. I select to boot from it and it just starts to load windows. :(

    Yes, it did it automatically though. I just activated them, that's it.

    Yeah well I don't think I'll be setting up much more rigs with it so it's just to get the rig going for now. This rig has been the biggest mission I've had with PC's, it just doesn't want to obey me! :laugh:

    it was down 10 hours, today it works again luckily, and i reorganized the loop, so it looks better, i can keep my screwbucket res, and i can finally use all the desk for peripherals and the screen.
    all in all it was worth the hassle, and thank god, it didnt crapped out even tho the NB, Mosfets, SB and CPU socket got soaked pretty bad ;)

    I seem to be having a weird problem with the BOINC manager. If I snooze it before I launch Black Ops, soometime when I'm in game, it starts processing again, using up 100% of my resources. Gotta just quit the manager now before I start gaming.

    Anyways, question: Whats the ideal amount of RAM for a crunching rig?

    For a dedicated cruncher, you can probably get away with 1GB if using XP, but some projects take a lot of RAM so 2GB is desirable, especially if you have >2 threads.
