    Set up you rig like the second link in my above post. I use it because it's free, not sure of any other advantages.

    Ye-ha, got the i7 crunching 8 cores!!!!!!!!!!

    It is running smooth and awesome.

    Hopefully I can turn in some better numbers than I have in the last year LOL

    Well after almost two months without crunching on the i7 970, she is back crunching again. I had some water loop troubles back in late November/early December and went back to stock cooling on the GPU's and motherboard. Have the Noctua NH-D14 on it now. On a side note, the Dell lappy has gathered almost 600,000 Boinc points in a little more than a year:)

    Edit: Saw this set-up for sale on this TPU'ers FS thread. Would be a nice little cruncher. Never had an Intel motherboard though...

    Awesome Hammer!!!!!!

    Yep I seen that sale thread also man. I agree, it would be a great cruncher:rockout:

    :laugh:ya better grab that before I get my taxes back:roll:


    Now a quick question for those that have run the 1366 platform; I bumped this system up to 3.6ghz, which is running great, however I am seeing temps of upper 70's! Is that normal? I don't want to kill this awesome chip by something as stupid as that.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was going to wait for the EVGA SR-X, but since I have to assume it's going to require Xeon chips, and since those are likely to be crazy expensive for much lower stock clocks, I think I'm going to get a 3930k. Any recommendations for a solid LGA 2011 m/b for under $300?

    I'm thinking about this ASRock

    ASRock X79 EXTREME7 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s ...

    Can't give you my take on any LGA 2011 boards as I've never messed with one. However, that ASRock looks very solid my friend. So far at least both reviews have it at five eggs...

    Agreed, the AsRock is a nice board and the XFast utilities are a good bonus too, especially the XFast Lan.

    Pay for runtime and NOT getting the heat? I move my rigs around to heat my house where needed (not true but I put them where I would otherwise would have to turn on electrical heating) . Let's talk when the outside temperature rises to above 20 C.

    Looks like the switch from 32-bit client to 64-bit client is paying of already:)
    Looking to hit 52-54k boinc pts today and that's without the 3960X rig, so I might get up to F150_Raptor level with the extra 12 cores.

    Okay am I missing something? I don't see where there is a download for 64bit????? I think I am running the 32 bit version.....At least as far as I know.

    I ran all the way up to 85C solid 24/7 at 3.8GHz for a couple of years without problem. You're more than safe at those temps.

    Personally I'm using the Asus P9X79 vanilla and that's what I'd recommend. I love GB and AsRock have great features, but honestly Asus have the best boards for SandyBridge. Not cheap on SB-E platform but you definitely won't regret it in terms of stability.

    Yea, eventually I'll need to find a smaller place to live, would prefer to use the cloud than have loads of heat in a tiny flat during summer. But well.. all depends on how the cloud does. It's fine with <20C but in London pollution creates it's own microclimate :laugh:

    Great to hear it, glad it worked :)

    Might also mention that I dropped the "Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2" project cause I got loads of errors on all my rigs on it.

    Awesome to know KieX!!!!! Yea I put the chip back down to the stock settings after posting that until I heard differently. That is great to know man. I will now run that puppy back up to 3.6 and see how it does :toast:

    Looks like one of my rigs has crashed, but it's one that I have at work. Have 2 days off though so there's not much I can do till I go back on Wednesday. Might send email to a co-worker to explain how to reset UEFI settings

    This should be fun, you and F150 going head to head. Uhhhh :D :)

    Happened to me with more than one rig, not sure why. My current rig doesn't error them, but my past rigs have. I was forced to drop them as well.

    I think I would just wait :laugh: Unless the co-worker knows what he's doing...

    Don't think I have enough firepower to go head to head with F150 just yet, that 48 core of his really pulls som great numbers that I can't match at the moment.

    Don't work in an IT job, so apart from myself, there's nobody there with that type of knowledge of computers. Long story short, lots of people depend on it running until Wednesday that I bring it back home. Either someone learns to reset BIOS or I'm gonna have to miss 30min of holiday (And i was planning to sleep till 4pm) :p

    4.5GHz @1.365v w/Corsair H100 stock fans middle speed setting. Keeps it in the high 60's to low 70's.
