should be adding something good soon
unfortunately not for another week but sometime next week i should be having some of it
Got Two new badges!! One for Clean Energy Project-Phase2 and one for Beta Testin!!
Nice! Beta is tough one to get, even for bronze. I signed up as soon as they announced the program and I still only have a bronze.
Congrats on a piece of the Big Pie KieX to your dedication
I will still be ramping up production, trying to reach 8Million for my 2nd anniversary with the team in December.
Great job Shiv!
I shut down my i7-950. Today was really hot and the breaker for my office kept tripping. I thought that was odd since I've been running like that for a while and haven't changed anything. The a/c only pulls 475watts and I had measured the 1090t at 100w even. The 950 though was pulling almost 300w at 3.6ghz. I knocked it down to 3.1ghz and it was still around 250w.
Now technically, since the total even with the other stuff in here should be less than 1500w, it shouldn't be an issue, but apparently it was. I now have that rig on another circuit so I could actually run it, but at 300w, it costs me about $40/month. Since my a/c usage is going to be insane, I'm shutting that rig down, probably permanently. I'll transfer the OS to a virtual machine so I can run it on another rig if there is something in there I need. Hopefully I'll get my act together and start parting it out.
yeah those old 1366 cpus uses insane amounts of power when overclpcked just a bit
i payed a visit to microcenter and i came out with parts for a new rig. I didn't plan on this at all
here are the specs
AMD Athlon II X4 email@example.com
2x1gb ddr3 1333
OCZ modX 500w
Coolermaster Elite 343
I also the other day bought a computer with the following specs
AMD Phenom 9500
ECS Nforce 430 (something)
4gb ddr2 800 samsung (4x1gb)
Antec Smart power 2.0 350w(had it laying around)
8600GT OC with voltmod and aftermarket cooling
320gb seagate 2.5mm drive
so they both are crunhing along with my PII.
Just installed a Delta fan I had sitting around, using it as a exhaust fan on my H50. Hopefully it'll help with temps. I'm currently only running it at 2,000RPMs instead of the 3,400RPMs it's rated for. But it still moves more air than my other fans.
Just for yuks I put together a short term regression analysis of our current pointage trend.
You're such a geek
(I'm guilty of copy pasting stats to excel to analyse)
It's nice to see we are on an upwards trend despite the summer jerkyness. F150 is certainly helping that but think we might need to start another campaign for new recruits.
As for your i7 950, try replace it with another 2600K, they really make for power efficient crunchers (33PPD/Watt @4.6GHz). Then if you upgrade later to SB-E or BD, you can always sell the 2600K's back to other crunchers for a good deal. Well, my $0.02 anyway
watch out CP im coming for you (check free-dc)
its good to see you back in business pos
thanks. It wasn't planed but its nice to be back crunching again.
Definitely nice to have you back Tim.
I just can't seem to get out of the slump I'm in. But I was supposed to have much higher PPD by this time of the year.
oh hai can i crunch for you guys???
its only on auto tuning settings atm wont do more until i get a better psu tomorrow or wednesday
