Good job Brandon.
20 Cores / 26 Threads!!! hell yea! now just to get them all running.
Good news: Stinger608's GTX 465 and TONYSALEM's Q6600 G0 arrived today and work great. Thank you both for being great sellers!
Bad news: 4CoreDual-VSTA died today. Might consider selling the C2D E6400 and maybe the PDC E6600.
Hey Jstn. pm me on them.
Just now got back home from my sister's place. I set her up with a BOINC manager running WCG on my acct. She has a P4 running at 3.0GHz and with two threads.
In a matter of five minutes, or so, her computer had downloaded four jobs and started running two of them. So, I'm looking forward to some bigger daily numbers, for me ( some of you guys are way out of my range!).
I should go from a hundred something points a day to, closer to, 300 a day!
Most of us started out with only a few cores. I for one had a P4 M @ 2 GHz. (1 core)
I had a few more than one when I started but it took only a few months to ramp up to what I have now
It's hard not to try to push for more ppd once you see the results start to come in
What makes it hard for me, right now, is lack of employment. My side job, this huge deck rebuild, has been delayed a couple times now. The Apple job doesn't start training until Jul, assuming I'm hired. Currently I have $4.00 in my bank and $7 cash, plus about $3 in change, to my name.
So, hopefully, the rain will stop and this guy with the deck will get approval and work will commence, SOON!!
Then maybe I can finally pay Mad Shot and get the Mobo I need for this AMD 3200+ collecting dust in my drawer! Hang in there buddy! I'm trying to get things together!
You'll get there buddy.
AMD 3200+? What socket?
It's an Old School Socket A! I bought it thinking I could throw it into my old Kt400 but, can't. So I got a 2600+ for 'This Old Comp' and found that Mad Shot has an ASUS Socket A Mobo that supports the 3200+ (and an AGP GPU I'm hoping to get a deal on).
So, that will be another Cruncher, eventually.
Ah, gotcha. It's been a couple years since my last Skt. 462 systems died, but K7 was a fun platform.
It appears as if we are running very close to each other?
It is a great challenge my friend and I am enjoying it very much!
both of you and Mike as well, very close competition.
Tell me about it. They just left me out in the cold. But props to them, they have built some mighty good crunchers.
you guys are just blowing right past me and I've been on here for some time now. You all are doing great jobs and keep it up.
Those two FX chips are real heavy hitters!
You still have some more upgrades pending so you should be hitting close to the same numbers
Just get brandon to cut loose that X6 from his farm and you'll be all set!!!
can't do that, my board was shipped and will be at Jr's on monday.
Sorry guys :/
I need to get it back up soon
Looks like you guys got a few reconfigures going on too.....
Well hell if the board is gone you don't need the proc anymore. LOL
I'm enjoying this challenge too my friend
However, you treat me condescendingly.
If you OC both you FX at least 400 Mhz higher, I'll swallow the dust.
Thank you guys for watching our friendly playful competition. Fact we ALL together do this important work.
Is it just me or have all our crunching sigs/stars disappeared?
