    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I too play games on my 1055t while crunching. If I feel I am going to be playing for a few hours I'll suspend crunching but for sorter time I just crunch and game at the same time. I have all mine set at 95%. I also web browse, watch vids, and other stuff and haven't noticed a hit. It may also depend on system memory too. I am running 8gb. :toast:

    I mean actually I can't really tell a difference when it is crunching to when it's not.

    As long as CPU priorities are right you should not see a hit when gaming, although in some cases a small framerate stutter will occur. The time to completion on the WCG WUs will increase, but as long as you aren't gaming 24/7 you should not see a large hit to your PPD.

    Yes , I noticed a slight studder every great now and then while playing Sniper Elite V2 the other day but that was just that time. Could have been a higher temp issue with one of the vid cards or the system could have been chugging at a rough work unit. But that was the first time I seen it and it hasn't even done that again.

    Well Lauren's HDD gave up the ghost last night, was forced to use my external drive as a replacement for her machine. I was able to restore most of her data since I had set up Windows backup. Just need to reinstall a bunch of programs.

    What a pain to deal with though. Should have known better than to install a Seagate HDD. Thankfully it has a WD now.

    I've been playing WoW and Diablo 3 while crunching 100% on my i5 2500k.

    WoW framerate went a bit down, as it is CPU demanding, but still have orgrimmar over 35-40fps, and some peak when flying or other over 100 to 200fps :D . No frame lost on D3. Big games, I suspend it, as I want to make sure my FPS won't go down (like BF3, when crunching, framerate goes down.)


    Well, Taking picture this afternoon of my M6500 cruncher from work :D, still haven't crashed, running 8 thread 50%. My home cruncher will be with my fan controller and finished cable management :)

    well I'm down a rig. I'm soo freakin fed up with it. I shut it down and I'm on the verge or taring it apart. I never had decent luck with this board and its just pissing me off. All it wants to do is keep freezing. I try running searches to fix it but I can't get far at all. So since it won't do a dran thing. Its shut down and I don't plan on bringing it back up. May just get a different board and just go all office space on this old one. This board was garbage to begin with. For those who don't know it's a MSI k9n2 sli plat.

    nForce 7 AMD chipsets are crappy anyway. Ever get my Foxconn A7DA-S/Phenom X4 9750 going? Haven't heard anything about it since I sent the package to you.
