    Congrats on the 1500 post Minweaver:toast:

    Ion I toasted a 1000$ Gultown a year a go on LN2 and it was an ES(Q3FE) so no RMA:shadedshu

    :respect:
    Nice hardware there mjkmike

    Oh wow :shadedshu

    I have no idea what I'd do if I did something like that; the only CPU I've ever killed was a Pent4HT I tried to de-lid. It didn't work :p

    They may not be as rewarding, but I'm very happy with my conservative OCs.

    EDIT: That's sweet Mike! Is this in addition to what you have, or a replacement for something?
    If it's an addition, looks like I'll have to do something to stay away from you :p

    Superb :)
    Now there will definitely be competition for the 2nd slot (or 3rd slot ATM) pie :toast:

    i admit its the best board i ever had until now, and also the one with the most useful and expansive accessoiries.And if you set everything yourself, these boards work flawless;)

    Thanks brotha! :toast: I've had rigs over time with OCing/OVing weld the heatsink to the processor.. I'd have to rip the processor out of the socket..lol
    :roll: :roll:
    Thanks Brotha! I've burnt a few in my day..hehehe

    EDIT: Not Gultowns!.. lol I was trying to comment while half asleep..lol I think the highest chip was around $900 for me..

    Sweet brotha! More volts is always better than under volts in my book.. Unless you just want something quite. :toast:

    I've had some Dells where there's so much paste that the CPU & HSF get stuck together o_O

    I must say I'm a passionate believer in undervolting. I have my laptop undervolted from ~1.2v to ~1.12v and temps when crunching drop from ~80c on a hard desk to ~60c on a hard desk. 80c I was uncomfortable with, especially as it was more like 90-95c while being used in my lap, so undervolting made WCG a possibility on this rig :)

    The Atom 330 systems seem to have settled on about 325 PPD each, so not quite a K between the trio :)

    depends on the proc and the voltage! im lucky if i can OC without overvoltage.
    as Chew said, stability is to be searched without adding volts, adding volts should be the last thing you do when OCing. I admit, sometimes i dont have that much time and patience, and tend to ignore it sometimes too. but in the case of my 4870x2, it made it run stable to undervolt it to 1.225 from stock 1.263, as my current PSU does not push enough current.
    it runs 800 core 1000 mem tho, flawlessly, and should clock maybe even over 900, when i get a new PSU;)

    3 days and still waiting for an RMA..

    But got a new i7 2600K cruncher. Hope I have more luck with this one, should be up and running tomorrow dedicated on WCG.

    *crosses fingers*

    WOW, I just noticed my Q6600 has past 1 million points! My i7 860 has around 700,000 points. My x6 would have more than 700,000, but I had to redo the os a couple times and it has had some down time. it took the Q6600 over 1 year to reach one million at 3ghz. If i get time i may research it more to find a more accurate time frame.

    Up and running! This one has a 46x multi wall. So 4.6GHz it is :ohwell:

    Also, anyone wondering about motherboards, as much as I loved GB in the past Asus is definitely the one to go for on SanyBridge.

    Still no response on the RMA :(

    Congrats on your new rigg:toast:
    Heard that 4,5-4,6 is a sweet spot for WCG on these SB.

    I would make a call about that RMA request.

    Yeah definitely a sweetspot. 155W crunching according to the killawatt. And temps are lower than my i7 950 @ 3.8 in same room.

    Being a weekend I'll wait till Monday afternoon to chase up the RMA.

    155W is nothing compared to my 980X(4,3 GHz) quadfire setup that draws 470W from the wall running WCG and my SR-2(dual X5690 at 4,2 GHz) draws 520W:eek:

    Good luck with the RMA:)

    Thanks :)

    Yeah, my i7 950 is 240W. Electricity wise these SB let you have an affordable farm with good PPD. I'm looking forward to the LGA2011 and AMD's bulldozer, but even if they turn out better performance as long as these SB remain low wattage/PPD I'll keep them going rather than upgrade.
