    My newest WCG build consists of:
    Athlon II X3
    Dual HD 6850s
    Gigabyte 790 MB (Thanks again mjkmike :toast:)
    NZXT Havik 120
    Corsair 750w
    Corsair 4GB DDR3
    Corsair Carbide 300R

    Case, PSU, and cooler are all in the mail. Once they come in all I have to do is pick up a small SSD and I can build it out. After purchasing the other parts I feel that the AIIX3 should be replaced by a stronger hexacore- so I will keep an eye out for one.

    On another note, I keep seeing everyone with their X79 setups which seem to absolutely crush WCG, so at some point I would like to liquidate everything and move over to the new tech. We'll just have to see if the finances will agree :laugh:

    IF Piledriver proves to be a success then 1090/1100T's will hit the market cheap- That's what I'm counting on for my rigs. :D

    Not sure if I can wait that long. Kind of odd that the MA790FXT doesnt support BD FX CPUs. I wouldn't mind playing with an 8 core FX for a little bit.

    If you can find the 1090T's AMD has made them scarce and if you do find some go for the 1090 not the 1100T. 100Mhz is not worth the $$$ difference.

    Just but a new AM3+ board...you can get them cheap.

    High end ASUS AM3 boards seem to be the only ones that support FX... I would have kept my Gigabyte 890XA-UD3 if I could have put an FX in it.

    Keep an eye out for the 3280 Opteron's (AM3+, 8core, 65w). If the mobo makers start supporting them in BIOS revisions we'll be able to build micro-ATX 8 core crunchers for a pretty reasonable amount.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I should be in the 6 to 7k range but I seem to be only barely breaking the 5k range. I was hovering right around 20th place, now I can't even hit 25th. Something weird is going on that's for sure.

    I just found out my X6 hasn't been crunching on it's own, for some reason bonic wasn't launching with Windows properly. Fixed it now. :shadedshu

    Well I just ordered a G440 1155 CPU to get this build up an running. Once I get rid of some toys collecting dust, I will order a I3-2100 and sell the G440. The G440 should give atleast 1K to the cause for now.

    Was hoping to hit 200k milestone tonight but both of my crunchers got hung up overnight and didn't return their work :banghead:

    Everything seems to be doing OK now so I might still make it today. If I don't... my total tomorrow is gonna be pretty big :D

    Anyone having issues with uploads? I have two finished jobs that will not upload.

    Edit: one just uploaded, might have fixed itself xD

    Same problem here so I think the issue is with the WCG server.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Heh they did crank them up to 88 did they.


    Mine is uploading fine. I had the Linux machine that was a little slow over the last few days. It still was uploading just building 4 or so jobs before it did.


    Does free dc base there stats from Boinc stats? I noticed free dc was real late updating and Bonic stats was also. I have 9600 point for the day from free dc and almost 11k from Bonic.

    Crunching updates! Well got time tonight to install the H60 but only dropped temps down to 49/50 deg from 55-56. Do 940BE 140W CPU's really stay this hot 24/7?
