    you remember when stivens rig was flooded a few weeks ago? it was THE legendary i7 in it, so i could always understand stivens anger over it... hell, it wasnt mine, and the simple death of that good silicone, due to some QC issues in China, with said fittings (45°turnable), makes me angry on them... hope AT responded to him regarding replacements!

    Not a plus for Aquatuning in my book! I hope they sort it out, it would be more than unprofessional, to just simply ignore you. Especially for a WC wholeseller this Size, that is even international. That would be.. well... a huge blamage:shadedshu

    Attempted again last night to OC to 4GHz. I used a guide from OC.net but still anything over 3.8ghz will not go past windows loading screen.

    That is a bummer man. Well some chips are just not good enough to hit the magical 4.0ghz bro.

    Well i dont think its the chip i think it may be the board or the install of windows i have cause its a copy of windows thats only 175MB LOL but tonight i will install a 64bit OS for the higher point which brings me to another question. What 64bit OS will be better for bionc? windows 7 x64 or xp x64?

    Hmmm, it has to do 4GHz even I you have to use more voltage than you'd like.

    Yea if its one of those mobile os's (ya know what I mean:laugh:) then yea that may be a possibility for sure. As for what to install, keep in mind that XP 64 bit had lots of issues all along, and the Windows 7 64 bit has been a rock solid operating system. With that said, I would strongly suggest installing a legit Windows 7 64 bit OS.

    piracy is bad, but borrowing a friends 7 dvd and reinstalling it every 29 days until you could afford your own copy is not ;) (its what im doing on the g/f's rig till the end of March then i can afford a 1TB and a copy of Win 7 of my own)

    On a side note my daily work done is avg'ing just over 1000 credits a day :toast:

    :laugh::laugh::laugh: Yea no kidding!

    Can't remember exactly how it is done, but there is a way that you can install Windows 7 and have it run for 90 days without the need to reinstall or enter a key. Dang just can't remember how the heck that is done:shadedshu

    I don't know about 90 days with no key, but if you're just using a machine for BOINC (I know this isn't the case, just curious) you probably could just run Linux, right? The performace should be the same or better...

    Its my g/f's rig, which as you can see in my stats is a 24/7 cruncher. Also i put most permament data on my 1TB external (music and such). I feel much better reinstalling than using the nefarious WAT removal program.

    Edit: My g/f has no expereince with any Linux Distros and was comfortable with XP, but i needed 7 to enable easier network file sharing (sharing between XP and 7 is a bitch and ghey). I also made it a personal vow to myself when I got the Q9450 rig to not run and pirated software or cracked OSes anymore.

    Yeah, Win7 has much improved and easier to use networking and filesharing support. It's also more secure. Out of curiosity, does running Linux instead of Win7 on a BOINC-only rig impact performance, and if so, how?

    the WAT remover,in my opinion, is the best Way, of showing personal disrespect for MS... they needed nearly 10 Years to code an OS, that starts to get more useful, than the pain in the neck XP and Vista were... in my opinion, they also should have distributed win7 for free, after the Disaster, they produced with Vista.... but nooo.... they want even more cash for their inability! :laugh:
    No, Bill, im really sorry for you, but i wont make you any richer.... you earn over 100 dollars a second already :D

    If you want to be totally legit for 180 240 days you can get the free copy of Server 2008 from Microsoft:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...dcsjwb9vb00000c932fd0rjc7_5p3t&displaylang=en

    (60 days initially then you can follow instructions at bottom of page to extend it)

    Edit: Sorry, 240 days not 180:

    Linux uses less cpu and ram to run. The extra 10-40%(% varies by flavors) that Win7 needs would be reallocated to crunching.
