Damn new motherboards are sexy, now only if they had boobs
Back up and Crunching
Welcome aboard! I'm a relative newbie and these guys here are the TOPS!!
BTW, I'm gonna set up my p$ machine for a 24/7 cruncher, in the morning. I'm a bit worn out today.
Did that small package make it there Arjai?
Yes, I got it on Tuesday, I think. This week of Labor has worn me out and I'm mentally taxed due to lack of sleep. Spend two nights up until 2 am helping my brother switch out a CPU, via phone call, and helped out a friend with an emergency plumbing fix he needed, cast iron pipes and some hardened buildup that needed cleaning out. That turned into another early morning since he gets off work after 10 pm.
But anyways, I have tomorrow off and I'm gonna sleep in and then fire her up!
P.S. Thanks buddy!
No problem buddy.
Well I'm done for the night. Spent almost 2hrs prepping the case. Gettin all the wires bundled up for some good cable management. One rig is down at moment. I'm tempted to turn that one back on. Main rig is going down for a bit tomorrow sometime for the migration.
No problem Norton. Hit me up whenever you can. That case should work out pretty well. Being all aluminum it'll stay cold better in the ac hopefully.
*Scratch that. I went ahead and put the other rig back together and turned it back on. So she should be crunchin again now.
Check your rigs folks... windows decided to do an update and restarted all of mine late last night
My numbers will probably be off by 20-30% as a result
I don't need to worry about that, as I don't have my systems set to automatically download and install updates. I just do that manually.
I'm going out tonight with the wifey
Can someone grab tonights Milestones, Pie, and Daily Numbers for me?
Have fun, I'll update the threads tonight if no other member takes care of it.
NEw 2600K build is here!! thanks KieX!
May it serve you well Was the most reliable 2600K I had.
Thank you kiex! Well I posted up one of my crunchers and it is gauging HUGE interest over at hardforum. If any of you guys are interested or knows someone how could benifit. Please point them to this thread
So, I have a mobo AM3 DDR2. I bought a 1075t to install. However, the motherboard supports only 95 watts. This CPU it supports. KieX (thanks to him) said that 2 GB is enough. i have 2x2 DDR2. But i have 2x4 DDR3 collecting dust/
When I looked at the price 2x4 GB DDR2, I was shocked. It is three times more expensive than any other memory. DDR2 2x2 is over 100$!!!
bought a Mobo AM3 $ 30 and now can not install Windous
DDR2 is getting pretty expensive but you may be able to find some in the B/S/T section for a good price.
A new 2x2GB DDR2 kit in the US is about $50
Which way do you want to go?
Another board for the ram you have or ram for the board you have?
Guys, I'm trying to get money together to buy a 7970, so, I'm selling Lauren's 5770. (Gave her my powercolor 5850.)
Discounts for crunchers as always.
All my crunchers are down, Expect my numbers to be very low for the next couple of days. I am doing some rearranging but I need to find a case soon. I have a full tower I swore I would never use again but I may end up having too.
Home depot man. That way we can have another wood case thread and you might as well get used to going there. Because if you get a DSM, half you go fast parts will come from there. LOL
LOL I wished I could but the wife wants it nice and neat so im guessing wood cases would be out of the question as well. May start looking into the cheapest case newegg has once I pay KieX back.
Also once the board from Jr gets here I will have that to fall back on as well. I just need one case to hold the 2600K build
I'm officially back up and running on both my rigs now. Hopefully I get through some projects a lil faster so my daily input will go up a lil. I'll look into oc'ing during the wk. Been looking to this build all wk and come Sat morning I woke up sick and am still sick (maybe getting strep throat).
Just wanted to give the team a lil update status.
Only crunchers that will be up are the I3-2120 and AMD Phenom II 940
The new 2600K is on a stock cooler and its WAY too hot even at stock clocks/volts to run 24/7 so it will be down until the water cooler gets here. the six core will not be back up until I get the board from Jr due to shortages in video card.
Thanks guys I will get back into the points rhythm when parts arrive.
