    Going to be in New York a lot longer than first thought, Rig in Washington State still Crunching away....I hope..

    Going to start a new build here in the next week or so, may be another AMD machine and not as big as my other one. Budget will be a grand from case to mouse. Cruncher and gamer. Shoot me some ideas.

    Not sure if your generosity extends to Necromancing... but I always thought that this thread deserves some kind of recognition:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94206

    It's err.. dead.. and buried.. but I think with some new posts it deserves to live. Or if not, to have another thread where all our members can write what made them start crunching or why they do it.

    I think it's a good place to direct possible new members.

    BF3 and race sims. Probably get another 6950 gpu and 23 inch hd monitor.
    would like to go with intel i7, but will most likely get an i5 or another AMD hex core.
    will crunch 24/7 so want something energy efficient.

    Like i said a grand has to cover everything so i am going to have to give on some things i like.

    Let's get it going again and I'll get it stickied, but there are a lot of new members that can post there so if they get going I'll sticky it. :)

    fixed up my sig to bookmark important links for people and show off badges (thanks Kiex). Guess that means I'll have to post a lot more. :roll: :D :cool:

    Got the Thermaltake coolers but were slathered with thermal paste. Have to get that crap off and apply some Noctua paste. Chips are mounted.

    I'm gradually getting there. :eek:

    Awesome Twilyth!!! I am assuming your talking about a SR-2 system?

    Also just noticed that I am a 4 star now. :) Hell, I was lucky to get a second star for several months!! These frigging i7's are some crunching monsters!!!!!!

    It's more a knock-off of the SR2 - all server parts so no OC'ing. :toast:

    I think it has something to do with free-DC stats having issues? I suddenly have 4 stars as well.

    Look up. Look way up.
    Yup, it was down for a few days and now that it's back up, it's playing catch-up so numbers are higher than what our normal ppd is.

    My courier had a little bit of struggle through the door today ;)

    2x Xeon L5639's, another 24 threads at combined TDP of 120W.. this could be interesting cruncher.

    [​IMG]

    Will bring my total thread count up to 78, and total output into the 45-52K PPD. Just need to get home and test it.

    *Update to my crunching farm!*

    Well I have ordered a NZXT Tempest 410 yesterday for my main. This will allow me to move the vulcan to work and move the cooler master case home to the 6 core. I also have another PC that I built for my father in law that has a Emachines case and it will house my strongest dual core I have left for the last cruncher I can probably install without my wife say WTF are all these PCs doing HAHA

    Have no spare HDD for Windows Server, will need to run off a Linux stick... hmmm ;):laugh:
     
  25. twilyth Guest

    I have some spare 500G drives but they have lots of errors in the SMART table. However I've wiped them multiple times with no problem. You're call, just pay shipping.

    If that sounds too dodgy, I have other 500g drives, but I don't know their status and they would have to be wiped which will take a day or two - same deal, so I guess it's not much of choice huh? :laugh: :toast:
