    But it was not returning any WU's for 5,5 hrs so that's a loss of about 3500 boinc pts:shadedshu

    Damn :(

    On the other hand, I had no net all day today neither, only a bit in the AM. Got Comcast coming out for a 3rd time on Thursday. I went outside myself and followed the line all the way to where some box thing is. Just wiggled the connection and now I have net. I'll make sure to point that out to the tech. Hope it stays working this time.

    I sure hope so too stinger, sucks. I'm also used to browsing with my phone on my network. (WIFI) so with no net I have to use just the regular ATT Network, so agonizing.

    Just got my WCG nrs. from their site and it looks like the switch to the 64-bit client is paying off good, still improving on my highest score 372k WCG pts today.:toast:

    Here's some results from the SR-2's:D

    I just put in a bid on a couple 6 core xeons. With a little luck, I build a new rig for a couple hundred more than what a 3930 would have cost me. But it's still early so we'll see.

    I went with a traditional server board so I probably won't be a threat to f150 anytime soon. The SR2 board was too expensive and I needed something right away so I could test the chips. Ebay holds payment now on a lot of seller accts until you give them positive feedback, and having been on the short end of that rule, I wanted to be able to test the chips right away.

    In hindsight, that probably wasn't a great idea even with board costing nearly $600 since I spent about that on the server board, registered dram and an EPS powersupply - plus 2 coolers. And that was cheaping out on almost everything. I did go for the 4gig sticks and a 80plus Antec, 620w psu so I didn't totally cheap out.

    However I have my scouts looking for another nice pair of hexes so we'll see what develops after I get this puppy cranked up.

    edit - Oh, about not being a threat.

    The board seems to support desktop RAM, could have saved a little there. But server parts retain value so not a big deal.

    Looks like a good combo, absolutely must post pics once you're done! I think you're looking at a solid 8K more or less with just over 230W. Slightly more efficient than the 3930K you were originally (IIRC) thinking of getting
  25. twilyth Guest

    Thanks for that info. It makes me feel a little better. :)

    I'm still a little fuzzy on the whole unregistered, unbuffered thing. So I went by the list of supported memory. Of course that's never up to date or complete. I also had in mind that I'm using a low end m/b - only 6 slots total - and I couldn't really expect that any fack would be cut or any slucks would be given.

    Technically, what I bought isn't even in the list, but the model number is so close I figured, fine, shoot me if I'm wrong - which I may well do myself before this project is over. I'm kidding of course but I still screw things up doing a simple desktop build and this will be my first server. :eek::eek::eek: So I'm trying, hoping to leave as little to chance as possible. Plus, I had a cheaper set in my basket and I my sweaty finger was poised over the enter key when I noticed that the egg was trying to sucker me into buying just one set. Apparently during the 5 minutes it took me to get around to checking out someone jacked the other set(s). WTFFFFF? :wtf: Which, you know, is like . . . bullshit. I mean who actually buys a 1P server - right? Am I right? :eek:

    Anyway, it's done. The money is gone. With luck, the parts are in the . . .
