    Yea Mindweaver's auto config file. Where do I check if it's using it 100% of the time?

    Task Manager. Open it up and watch it for a bit (~30 seconds)
    Hmmm, I wonder who that could be :cool: :rolleyes:

    In that case it sounds like you're good to go :)

    If you have a lot of other things hogging the CPU, I'd suggest you try to close them.

    They were at just 60%? Yeah, that's certainly something you'll want to do....I have WCG set to 100% by default on every newly registered computer, but it's normally not like that.

    Vcore was fine. Well within limits. I think it was pushing VTT and PCH past 1.1v that did it. Chip degraded very quickly after experimenting with those.

    Just RMA the chip, a lot of 32nm dies at stock volt too and Intel are exelent on RMAs at least thats my experience.:)

    I've had one 980x and one Xeon W3520 die on me because of OCing and Intel never asked why it died.

    Vtt over 1,4-1,45 is not reccomended at 24/7 speed for 32nm CPUs, you wear down the IMC untill it dies.

    At least ;)
    Ahh, I see. Do they not care about OVing in other regards (non Vcore)?

    Just waiting for the RMA number to come by email (going through the e-retailer). Sounds like I may not have lost my money afterall, but the pessemist in me will think the worst whilst the optimist is already celebrating :laugh: Cheers :toast:

    My WCG has only been running 2 threads (instead of 4) for quite some time now, I tried detaching the project and reinstalling the program but it is still just working on 2 at a time.:(

    any idea's?

    Run the built in benchmark test. Think someone had a similar problem solved like that.

    OK team, great news :D

    A friend of mine at school has offered me $1100 for my desktop (w/ the GTS450, not the GTX260). Basically, that would mean that I could upgrade to a Sandy Bridge, shave about 100w off the power consumption & get higher PPD @ the same time :D
    Assuming, that is, that my parents don't forbid me from selling it, which is a possibility :ohwell:
    Oh and probably make a bit of a profit too! Off to go configure a SB build on NE :D

    Oh yes. Born and lived in North Carolina my entire life. I decided that it was boring crunching under the American flag, there are too many American crunchers. And the flag is ugly :p
    Denmark IMO has a pretty damn cool flag and from what I've heard it's a nice country as well :)

    So, no reason whatsoever, but I am :p
    Oh, I'm definitely planning on it ;)
    My parents might object, but, hey, from their point of view, I make a few hundred bucks and lower the power usage quite a bit, so I doubt they'll object too much.

    I figure I should be able to pocket ~$300, save ~100w, and gain a few K PPD :)
    Not bad!
