    It's not just vitamins, but d and zinc in particular. Take 20 minutes and read the article I posted in the science section.

    Very nice job Twilyth! Now go get that cherry pie :p
     
  9. twilyth Guest

    LOL. Love the pic! Stole it!

    As for top 3, we'll have to see how that blade rental thing goes. As I recall, F150 can hit mid 60's all on by his lonesome, so I think i'm still safely in his rear view. As for my other targets . . . errr, I mean team mates . . . . :D

    I wished I could get away with using our blade servers here at work but they would probably kill me if it tried.

    Do you have a MOBO yet? 32 threads will result in a different pie for sure and by the 10th of May F150 and I will have reduced output (Free beta is over)

    No. Because it's an ES, the vendor recommends certain m/b's like the supermicro X9DAi. Do you have any suggestions?

    Sorry no. At $1800 a pop I havn't played with them yet. The problem with server boards is the lack of OC possibilities but a Intel W2600CR would work at stock at least. Yes I know don't go down that road but as you say it is ES's so to be on the safe side.

    That's retail. I paid several hundred less than that for 2. Of course they were used, but who really cares. :toast: :cool:

    ES's are not floating around where I live but if I ever win the big one I would get 4 retail (and fold). 2600K are still the king for chruncing I asume after reading the rewievs of the 22 nm running hot Intel.

    Had some errors overnight on my 1045T rig (which may have screwed my 460s for a day as well) so I bumped the voltage up to 1.35v and it should be good now.

    Damn! Sweet machine. I'm contemplating some myself, though I'd have to buy 1 CPU and run 1P until I can afford 2P.

    It's going to be get pretty interesting for the top 4 pie slots. Fun times! :D Though once Chimp Challenge starts I'll be moving a chunk of my power to our F@H team. Have to honor tradition. :respect:

    Indeed, friendly competition is always a fun way to get the work done. Looking at the pie thread is quite interesting these days, not just because of the coffey. :laugh:

    BOINCstats website is working OK. Hopefully FreeDC will be back up a little later today
