Hey has anybody seen twilyth out on the forums?? I haven't seen him posting in awhile...
Hmmm well I appreciate the offer but finding a motherboard that supports the CPU and RAM maybe difficult and costly. I would also need a case to house it in
A Dell Studio Hybrid or any other equivalent HP, Gateway, etc... uses these. I've seen barebone Studios all over fleabay for under $100. These were also popular for mini-ITX systems 3-4 yrs ago so I'm sure Jetway made a mobo at 1 time.... may have an old 2.5" HDD around somewhere too
Do you know what socket that CPU is?
I'm pretty sure a T8100 is socket P (478) but I don't know Intel stuff as well as I do AMD
Well CPU world shows two sockets, Is there numbers on the chip itself?
It's this socket- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_P
*pink socket with a small screw on the side*
Will have to check the #'s on the chip when I get home
It's a pga 478 chip not bga 479(i.e. pins are on the chip)
Retail equivalent should be this one:
Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 2.1GHz 3MB L2 Cache Socket ...
Well norton, I really from the bottom of my heart appreciate it but I think I will pass. You are a great person offering to help others out. I think JrRacinFan maybe interested if you want I can get him to PM you
I have an AMD X6 1045T on the way with 2 new ATX cases and Rosewill 530w PSUs, which should increase my crunching output and maybe get another rig or two up.
As far as crunching goes, I have a 3.6GHz X4 955BE on an ASRock AM2NF3-VSTA (100%), 3.2GHz Pentium Dual Core E6600 on an ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA (100%) and 2 threads of my 4.5GHz 2600K. I'll be putting the 1045T in my Crosshair III Formula (currently running a Sempron 130) which folds on 2 GTX 460s.
I have a new Foxconn A7DA-S with a Phenom 9750 and a Biostar A780L3B (what the Sempron came with) so maybe I will get at least the A7DA-S running.
Nice little list of crunchers. I at one point had three going. I'm down to one now, but looking to get a 2nd i7 running by the end of this week!
Thanks. If I get it ill start crunching again. May need to build up a small basement build for privacy. Make it a cruncher and networked file server.
Yeah, I have been changing things around constantly after discovering Geeks.com's refurbished motherboards. I've bought 4 refurbs and 2 new boards from them.
The only reason I can run a ton of rigs is because the power meter on one of the two units we rent for my dad's business is broken and will not advance. Therefore, we only get charged ~$7.00 a month for power on the employee side of the office and I have 5 rigs going up here 24/7. Sshhhhh...
As much as I am unhappy about having a few more potential machines offline and in boxes, I am actually happy to have a motherboard reserve because losing a rig can put such a big dent in production. I like contributing to WCG and Folding@Home as it makes me feel better about all the **** I randomly buy, and makes it have a useful life until it dies long after I have quit caring about it.
My machines/parts (hold onto your butts, I have a computer addiction):
Rig1 (online): in system specs, at home.

Ok the update I mentioned the other day is a go!
Looking nice. Is that stock cooler?
Yea its the G440 cooler, its about 1 inch tall total compared to the 2120 cooler at about 1 3/4inch tall.
@brandon - no problem... helping out another cruncher is a team effort. Others have helped me out so I'm just paying it forward a little.
@Jr- will hit you thru PM. If you gets you back crunching again it's worth it
Jr will love that CPU and ram!
Anybody else have an issue with WCG and their points???
I have been uploading work continuously but over the last 12-18hrs 90+% of it is ending up in "pending validation".....
I have the same issue yesterday and today. The results were not validated. Yesterday, scored only 3.500 points, although made not less than 8k.
I was at the same pace you were yesterday but only ended up at 5,100 points for the day...
The am update is up and my total is 824 points with 4 pages of additional pending validations since yesterday pm
*** Update- points seem to be moving now... +1,500 pts showing in BOINC Manager over the past hour ***
WCG for some reason on weekends or around the weekend time takes crap Points are always kinda weird around the end of the week.
I haven't run into the weirdness this bad in awhile
Seems to be improving more still... up another 1,500 pts over the last hour and a half
I started at 1990 this morning and have gained about 5k in points so far today.
Yeah results are kicking in now
Installing windows on the 2nd i7 now.
Another Old computer, this one has a P4!
My buddy gave me a computer, an old Emachines, with a P4(1.6GHz).
It wasn't working because of a bad HDD. I have a spare and want to install a fresh XP Home on it, since W7 is to big and it currently only has 256Mb of ram, I plan to add a 512 DIMM I have laying around( it also has a miniature 200watt PSU, it's almost cute! ).
I just started Crunching on this comp, my main, and it doesn't seem like I'm getting much done. Is it worth it to put this thing together for a 24/7 cruncher? I know I can't do what some of you all are doing but, I joined the TPU team( @WCG, hope nobody minds!) and want to contribute as best I can.
Which doesn't seem like all that much the way it is now, sharing my poor Duron time with WCG.
I plan to get that Emachine up and running Monday. I don't know what else to do with it.
Thanks for any advice.
