    OK crunching team in preparation for the upcoming Chimp Challenge, I will switch all my rigs to F@H starting 1 May and leave my Q6700 as my lone cruncher.

    Thanks everybody for your advice trying to get me up and Crunching, with This Old Comp. But the two big pieces of the pie go to Norton, who told me to PM Mindweaver, the other big piece to him!

    I took MW's advice and dumped WCG for the BOINK download, 7.02 blah, blah, and this morning I awoke to a task that has been running error free for over 9 hours!

    Yea! So, with crossed fingers, I hope that was that!

    :nutkick: to the WCG forum, useless!

    :respect: to Mindweaver, who has been a Socket A cruncher in the past, specifically Duron Crunching.

    :toast: to the rest of this awesome team for taking on a driveling fool, like myself!

    Norton and I have been rolling here lately. And with the plans we have it will only get better. :toast:



    Hey buddy, I was crunching on socket A's at first also. You just need to be mindful of what projects you crunch with them.

    Thanks for the Heads up. BTW, I have two tasks running now! However, one I signed up for is ABC@Home. I signed on not knowing if it will count towards our team, anyways, it's running and the Clean Energy Phase 2 is running, not problems!

    So, these will finish and then I'll get no new tasks? Even though I'm running the BOINC manager?


    I know Mad Shot! No disrespect. :respect: You've helped me along in many ways, and I thank you! I'll make another pie that you, CP and Norton can have all to yourselves!!

    :D

    Finally. Boinc wasn't uploading and I was running the last four I had. I did a restart and now its uploaded. Don't know if anyone else was having that issue but that's what I did.

    Abc doesn't count toward your wcg points. And thank you for the compliment. If there's anything else we can do just ask man.


    Hey pops it wasn't your machine. Wcg was down. It came back online about 2 hrs ago. I had 3 systems out of work for about 2 hrs. :toast:

    Sweet. I had to restart it anyways. I closed it to play a game for a bit and when I reopened it. The pc froze as usual so I had to restart. I thought I read up top somewhere it was going to be down till tomorrow? unless that was posted yesterday. My memories shot

    Oh well, it's only a small thingy, and I'm a bit of a math nerd. So, if nobody minds, I'm gonna keep it in the mix. Maybe once my farm is built, I will set it aside to run on my daily machine and keep the other two crunching full time.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I still crunch Seti from time to time, so it's your own preference. I am actually once my next x4 is done going to devote the main three systems to Wcg and the other oddball machines to Seti.
    I will still keep my numbers up with Wcg but also still contribute to Seti.

    Going to be helping XS with the super computer week so no production from me for May 1-7. I'll be back after but I'm going to downsize to just one rig soon.

    OK it looks like I've hit a wall with my ppd so it's time to plan an upgrade or two :D

    I'm putting feelers out for Thubans to replace the 720BE and the 960T in my crunchers. This would bring my output up over 10k ppd with all 3 rigs running.

    Please let me know if you know of anything available or keep me in mind if you are upgrading and need a home for the chip you currently have. 1090/1100T's are the preference but will consider any 6 core that will work in my rigs.

    Will put my current chips out there to help other crunchers as needed. The 960T does great and oc's well, the 720BE not so much.

    Thx

    Has the 960T's unlock potential been tested thoroughly?

    Completely.... I went thru 3 generations of boards (790,890, and 990 series) unlocks but no stability past the BIOS post no matter what I've tried. Overclocks easy up to 3.8 though (crunching at 3.4 to keep the heat down)
