    Hey Chaotic, this is an excellent voltage and temps! :respect:
    There is one nuance. We both are using the similar 890FX-based Crosshair IV boards, right?
    In my case, if the bus is less than 300 MHz when overclocked, the invisible throttling happens, I think that because of the 3027 beta BIOS.

    Frequency is falling down to 2,8 GHz on from two to six cores, voltage is also reduced.
    All energy efficient settings in BIOS are off, Turbocore=disabled. :cry:
    [​IMG]


    Then raised bus speed to 290 MHz and throttling is out.:rockout:
    [​IMG]


    So try to check the frequency of the cores in the CPU-Z under full load. I would be glad if your motherboard hasn't that damn throttling.

    My goal is to at least get my landlord to seal my door better so my a/c works and I can get my 2nd cruncher going. :shadedshu

    OK. I'm really not looking for a cookie here, or anything, since I sould be crunching more than I am right now. :laugh: Just letting everyone know that I'm gonna start bringing back a couple of crunchers, but probably just a few days a week. This includes a i7 920, 1090T and FX-6100.

    Cheap I7-920 combo would be nice for a cruncher. I seen some over at hard forums kinda cheap

    Awesome! :toast:
    I'll go take a look...depending on the price, I might be able to pick up two of them :D

    I will be freeing 2 combos due to upgrades, Crunchers and Folders get first dibs. PM me for details and cost.

    Actually only one system due to upgrades, the other just sits here doing nothing.

    If you're interested in AMD FX you can pick up a Biostar A880GZ mobo, FX-6100, and 4GB of ram for about $200 at NewEgg. I have 2 of these running and they're doing pretty well (4k ppd or so @ stock clocks)

    That they do...I've had a couple i7s and they were amazing :D
    4k PPD each I assume? Might it make more sense to shell out $30 more a FX-8120? Shouldn't that do ~33% higher PPD for ~15% more money?

    Sure it does... just giving you the figures I had from my last purchase (A880GZ/FX-6100/2x2GB ram).

    I'm currently running all of the FX 6/8 core CPU except the 8120, which I may pick up if I put together another cruncher :D

    The system will be more expensive by the same 33% because it will need better cooling.

    Wouldn't something like a Hyper212 be the best choice for a FX-6100 or FX-8120?

    I'm using a Xigmatek Gaia and a Xig Night Hawk (essentially a black coated Gaia) and temps are running in the mid 30's crunching at 100%.

    A Gaia is pretty much the same as the CM 212+ for the same $30 but I prefer the 8mm heatpipes and the mounting solutions on the Xig's (very solid mount!)

    Hyper212 will be for stock frequency certainly the best choice. If you want 4GHz+ frequency and more than 5k ppd, you need something more serious, because the heating is quite large.

    Fair enough. I would probably want to stop in the upper-3GHz range so I can have something reasonably quiet and not too loud (I'll be keeping these in my dorm). I had no idea you could get 5k+ PPD out of them...wow! :)

    ....so tempting... :D

    A wise decision. Quiet, low power, restful sleep.;)
    I'm keeping my 8120 not in the dorm and can somehow get the 6200 ppd at 4.4 GHz frequency:)

    That's awesome news Paul! Bring on the HEAT!

    ... And the hyper212 is a great cooler for its price. But I don't think it'll handle a FX too well at high clocks. For stock or a slight bump in clocks it really does not have any competition though, great cooler for the price.

    I'm tentatively going to purchase an i7 875k + mobo off of him :D
    You're getting 40+ points off of them for .03 hours of CPU time??? That's like....killer PPD... :confused: :wtf: :eek:

    This is a Beta Testing. It uses the GPU for crunching. Unfortunately, the beta-task is a rare.

    Ahh, that makes more sense then. When did WCG start to phase in GPU crunching? What are the best cards for this, and what sort of PPD do they do?

    I do not know quite well when they appear. Received the beta only the second time. The only thing I can say that the Beta-tasks come to a cruncher with AMD HD6950 GPU, never to the weaker. I remember that Norton was several times happy owner of Beta.

    Good points from beta? Storm the beta! :p

    Nah, it was a thought earlier to let the APU's GPU show itself. 20 and a bit mins per beta WU. Caught 2. :D

    Not this time though- I forgot to enable GPU computing when I finished up all of my hardware reconfiguring :banghead: :banghead: and :(

    Just fixed it now :eek:
