WGC 12 threads i7-990X @ 3.9 GHz FTW! (stock air cooler)
Ugh, I wanna build more crunchers
LOL if i built anymore crunchers, my wife would kill me
I will set the I7 920 to 3.8ghz tonight and leave it
As long as it's in my room I'm fine so, why not?
I didn't know that you could cunch under Linux...have to look into that.
Supreme0verlord had made a thread about running Ubuntu for crunching. It's a little outdated now, but the concept should still be the same. AMD seem to benefit from it more than Intels.
I have now been trying to convert one of my folders to Linux (dual boot) but one of the things that kept me from during it was that I couldn't make an instant switch between folding and crunching, or so I thought.
Running it through VM will be resource heavy on the CPU, which might not go too well with high end graphics cards and GPU3.
If you have that combo you might want to look into running GPU3 through Wine in linux. That way you might get better results for crunching/folding on same rig in linux.
I just bought a 2600K! I'll be moving my Q9550 to replace one of my E8400 rigs. I'll probably give either my p35 /w WIFI or my p45 MB to my brother and the E8400 cpu will either go to him or my nephew. Now all i need is a MB!... hehehe
About the question will linux crunch.. hehehe hell yea
You would know! Yeah, when I have the budget to build crunchers, I'll definitely use Linux. More crunching and I can spend that extra $100 (Win7 Home Premium x64 OEM) on a beefier CPU!
Thanks for the info guys, that's quite useful.
Why does my ppd suck
It should'nt if your crunching with the rig in your sig???
WHY do i not see you on the team raster though,Are you crunching under the name of Bow???
DOH!!! nevermind,I now see you are BowHunt3r!
Your machine is capable of aprox 3,600 ppd if ran 100% 24/7.
How is it set up??
Probably set at the default 60%
!00% on both.
I just got windows 7 still trying to find my way around. What happened to the sniping tool?
what do they use now?
It should still be there. It's in the main Win7 versions. (Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise)
Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Snipping Tool
Quick question fellow crunchers. What PSU would you recommend for my Intel Rig to replace my HX1000? Im asking cause I would like to carry over my Corsair to my Bulldozer build in the summer. For the forseeable future the rig will continue to house both 4850s but will be relagted to wife and/or kid usage (FB and internet). im thinking something in the 650-850 watt range should do the trick and i dont want to spend more than $100-130 on it.
Im in Canada so Newegg.ca prices or links plz. Any and all advice/suggestions are welcome.
either way you will be fully covered even for future builds
As Im familiar with Corsair, that TX750 looks mighty appealing. thnx for the quick reply Don
You just can't go wrong with Corsair!
i need to borrow a copy of ms office, Can anyone one help me out?
I Think open office is all you need.
Thanks I will give it a shot
