Yea Mindweaver's auto config file. Where do I check if it's using it 100% of the time?
I see that somebody just move to Denmark and toke the 5th spot there. Hit - a lot of Pentiums
Task Manager. Open it up and watch it for a bit (~30 seconds)
Hmmm, I wonder who that could be
Yea, it's using 100% of every core.
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.
WOW i just changed the 3 xeons from 60% CPU to 100% CPU! not its 100% load 24/7 im glad i checked this after reading some posts
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.
lol now i should get 25% more PPD correct?
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.
Ahh, I see. Do they not care about OVing in other regards (non Vcore)?
100% or no %
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 Cheers
I won't say I told you so, oh I did say it.
Good luck with your new chip I hope it OC's good for you
ION, just noticed this, you're crunching under the Danish flag?
I'm sure MStenholm and FIH The Don won't mind.. but er.. aren't you american?
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.
Run the built in benchmark test. Think someone had a similar problem solved like that.
OK team, great news
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
Assuming, that is, that my parents don't forbid me from selling it, which is a possibility
Oh and probably make a bit of a profit too! Off to go configure a SB build on NE
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
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
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.
That's great Kai!
I figure I should be able to pocket ~$300, save ~100w, and gain a few K PPD
What case you thinking about going with?
Why not check out the whole build here
Does your friend have a good idea of what your system is worth? He is your friend.
