    Speaking of Thubans, I'll need to work on my 1045T some more to get it performing optimally. I think my Team Elite $30 8GB DDR3 1333 kit overclocks badly, as I was still getting "Assertion Failed" errors despite bumping the VCORE on my chip to 1.35, so I lowered the HTT to 250 from 260 and no more problems apparently. I think I'll swap with the G.Skill 8GB 1333 Ripjaws on my currently unused G41 system as G.Skill sticks always seem to have good headroom and I only need to get to 1420 or so (5.33*267).

    In other news, I brought my KillAWatt to work on Friday and my 1045T/2 GTX 460s rig pulls 450-500w from the wall with a LEPA G900 80+ Gold PSU. My 955BE/HD 3850 AGP seems to use ~200w and my PDC E6600/7800GS AGP only seems to take ~120w. Currently all 3 systems on that side of the room use about 800-900w peak.

    EDIT: Also got my crappy PNY DDR2-800 exchanged at WorstBuy today (one of the sticks locks up PCs after 1-5 minutes) and managed to get sticks with smaller ICs and they actually get to 1000 at 1.9v CAS 6 (they're rated 800 CAS 6) so it's awesome that they OC better than the older bigger chips. Should be able to bring my A7DA-S online with a Phenom 9750 in a few days, although I might just move that Phenom to my AM2NF3 machine and swap with the 955BE. :)

    I'll be tearing down one of my 1090T's (replacing with a Llano A8) but I've already promised it to a friend (non-WCG). I contributed a fair amount to the contest last year, plus there was the TPU ad on Free-DC, so I'm focusing my charity closer to home for a while. I've also dropped a boatload of money on servers (not all of which I've discussed here), and I need to either start acting rationally or find a nice comfy psychiatric hospital to check myself into.

    I enjoy your posts.... your best contributions hands down! :toast:

    Stay out of them hospitals they're bad for your health :rolleyes:
    would your friend be interested in a 960T and a 60GB SSD (Corsair Nova 2) instead? I'm considering putting that deal up as a FT post in the B/S/T section.

    No, he's looking forward to the 1090T. Apologies.

    End rant :eek:

    Just sucks that I can output so much more than I am now. I think I got a few $$$ coming in a week or so and will be picking up the couple of 6 core CPU's I need (new or used so still looking)- will bring my total up to 18 cores crunching, up from 13 now so not too bad an increase.

    Will be looking to build another cruncher by June (or earlier) possible specs/options:

    1- AM3+ w/FX6200 (upgrade my main rig to FX-8150 as prices are dropping)
    2- X58 w/i7 920 or 930 (older tech but getting more affordable w good ppd)
    3- AM3+ w/Athlon II X4 (seem to be getting decent ppd)
    4- 2600k or FX8120 system
    Ultimate goal is 15-20k ppd..... so much for sticking to 5k ppd :p

    Will look to buy from fellow crunchers that are upgrading as my 1st choice and will sell off my excess hardware to fellow crunchers who may need it at a nice discount.

    You should look at good thread CPU but low power CPU ;)

    I think an i3 2100 should be not too bad.. 4 thread, enought fast. That is if you worry about Power bill :)

    That is what I'm going to do, when I will get my house in 2 years. a Small server with an Low power CPU but alot of thread.

    a i3 2100 at 100% Crunching, will draw less power than an i7 1366, or a AMD CPU (but has less thread also, but at 100% that would be awesome).

    That is just a suggestion :)

    I'm thinking an i7 1366 (920/930) downclocked would give me 8 threads and not too bad on the power.... similar with the others as well. I have an option for power that won't cost me anything but need to work out communications 1st (no phone lines/internet where the power is in all but 1 location)

    I would not recommend 8150. Very expensive, but essentially the same 8120. You do not need overclocking records? Your rigs can be upgraded cheaply. You just might replace the 960T and 720 without changing the platform to the most inexpensive x6.
    EDIT: Oh, sorry, missed that you already had planned.

    As for me, 8120@4,5 (24h) and 1045T@3.1 (16h) bring me about 10k ppd.

    Thanks Daimus... your rigs are doing great by the way! :toast:

    I will be putting the X6's in those 2 rigs AND will be adding on a new rig in a couple of months. Maybe I will just put the 960T I already have into a cheap AM3+ board after the X6's are in and call it a day with 22 cores (6 for each of my current rigs plus 4 from the 960T)

    That will give me the option of putting an 8120/8150 (or Piledriver for that matter) in my main rig and reusing the 6200 as a future upgrade or rig (i.e. will add up to 8 more cores for a total of 30):D

    Probably my best option ATM

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys one of my crunchers decided it wanted to freak out today. Now it won't connect to client. I tried uninstalling wcg and reinstalling to no avail. All the other systems are good. It's internet connection is good. just won't connect to localhost. I thinks it's time to break out the 1911 on it's ass. Well I killed the hdd and installing Ubuntu 12.04 on it. So my numbers will be down for a couple days until wcg decides to throttle me back up.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I appreciate it man I really do. The junk pile in question should be back up sometime tonight. I just can't for the life of me figure out what happened. It was working fine this morning and when I got home tonight it was blanked out with the connecting to localhost crap at the bottom. So I tried all I could think of to fix it. So now I wiped the drive and now loading linux on it. I was planning on moving the system over to Linux in a week or so anyway.

    From what I see yes. My one x2 system running Windows with a faster proc mind you is trailing the The other one running Ubuntu by about 3 to 400 ppd.




    Back up and running. Several hours later and a few drinks and here we are.

    Well guys the 6 core is OCed to 3.6Ghz 1.43V and has been stable all night long crunching 100% so this SHOULD put me in PIE status but we will see :)
