    lol, Nice hint. I don't remember him having that one. I'm looking at one he has up now but I need the little money I have to go to other things.

    Can't wait to see what that new rig is gonna do.

    Guys I have two P4 machines sitting around here at my place, suggestions? At this point I'd love to get them up and crunching but I have no place to put them.

    So, my G41M-S3 decided to play dead Friday night after testing an HD 5770 in it with FurMark. Discovered the CMOS battery was dead so I swapped that and it still wouldn't come back to life. Took it on a 30 minute car ride home, take it out of the case and it decides to work again.

    Then, I installed F@H and WCG remotely on my 990FX Extreme4 (460/550Ti/440 crammed in there) and it was working fine, clicked "Restart" on the WCG install window to finish it and lost contact with the machine completely. I'm a bit scared to see what state it's in when I get back to it, as I have no idea if it's been "powered on" the whole time but stuck on UEFI or something, or if something blew up. Nobody's been around to check on it for over a day because it's the damn weekend, so that's 2 rigs down for me, not including me ripping my AMD cards out of my dad's office machine so that's more like 3.

    All I have running at the moment is my Thuban + GTX 460, PDC E6600 and a Phenom 9750 in addition to my home desktop. Sucks when rigs do this dumb crap when you work on them remotely and can't press the power button.

    Not a good chose, bad producers and no/little OC in a server board. If you do want to ramp up your production get a i2600 or a AMD FX 8150. See link for details. Remember to times the number in the far right column with the numbers of cores/threads.

    I come home from 12+ hours of work to find my 2600k with the code of death. All fans running keeping the bich cool. I think she just had that time of the month.

    Your rig should be just fine. Just give it a good hit like it took you're last beer.:laugh:

    Thanks Bud but I'm done for now, the hardware fund is negative for a while (with 2 exceptions for next month)- my next steps are going to be recruiting for new members for the team and eventually an Opty server.... maybe :p

    **EDIT- FX-8120's are available at NewEgg for $169 with a $15 gift card (net $154), FX-8150's are $199 w/$10 gift card (net $189) **

    well I got my old rig up and running finally. I tried setting it up fresh install but it wouldn't read from usb. So I took old hdd from main rig that still had my os install on it and surprise, it booted right up. I still need to configure it to run at 100%. I also have it folding. I'm hoping I'll get a lil jump in numbers at least.

    Hey guys- going out with wifey tonight.

    Can someone post the daily numbers, stones, and pie for me?

    I'll be back late- I'll post what I can if no one grabs them for me.

    Thanks in advance! :toast:

    WTH, my Thuban rig decided to disappear sometime today at work. I really want to get to work tomorrow if possible and see why my two biggest machines have gone down. I've never experienced these problems in the many months I've had a farm going, ever. My crappy ASRock refurb machines that only crunch are the only two machines "alive" at the moment, which is a bummer. :(

    Damn that sucks :(

    I need to bring 2 rigs out into other areas soon and I hope I don't run into these issues...

    good luck on getting those rigs back up and crunching- hoping it's only something minor.....

    Yeah, I hope so too. Considering I have spent $500 in the last week on stuff for my farm, it would be a huge slap in the face to have more dead hardware. A brand new motherboard, practically new 1045T on a 2mo old motherboard and all 4 of my 400 series NVIDIA cards are in "unknown" status. I set all the BIOSes to power on upon power failure on Friday hoping to prevent such issues, but a random power surge that is of the right length can lock up a system in the "on" state and it will never reboot.

    My first rig (with brand new mobo that ran a day) disappeared Friday night after commanding it to restart after installing WCG. Maybe I screwed up the boot priority and it's stuck in UEFI which will be quite infuriating but better than hardware death.

    My second rig was running all day Saturday and through Sunday morning, but went offline sometime during the day with no known user intervention.

    The other "clunkers" (which are physically located next to the unknown machines and share the network hub and power mains) have been up for 2.5 days since I restarted them Friday after changing the power state settings on them.

    Oooookay, got to work today. 990FX Extreme4 was stuck on POST screen with code A3 - IDE Enable. Pressing the reset button made it boot up properly.

    Biostar A780L3B was turned on but blacked out. Pressing the reset button made it boot up properly.

    I don't think I can facepalm any harder.

    Yeah, that's true. I wish I had some sort of remote controller that I could wire all the power and reset buttons of my rigs to, and activate the buttons if a rig goes offline. Maybe I just had bad luck this weekend because of the crappy weather shaking the power lines outside or whatever lol.

    Welcome back! I swapped the 1045T rig's PSU today as I think that was causing the black screen of death I was experiencing.

    Also, Mad Shot, I've had fun with your A8N-E over the weekend. Apparently I have a crappy Toledo 4400+ (~2.4GHz) and an amazing Toledo 4400+ that does ~2.9GHz with volts (currently at 2.8, 255*11, 1.4v in BIOS). Also took off the NB cooler yesterday, oiled the fan and put new paste on. :)

    I was surprised to see my good Toledo score a 6.0 in WEI. :twitch:

    Cool deal bud. Glad to see you are getting some use out of the board. If' I would have kept the board all it would have done is collected dust in my closet. :toast:

    Weather has been horrible here too, had one rig off for a few days and my main rig off here and there. Screw that, not risking it. But got them all back now that the weather seems to have gotten a little better.

    Welcome back! :)
