    Maybe give it some time, it might take a few for all to get work. Only thing I can think of.

    Well, the Atom still won't upload. Bogmali said the parts will arrive tomorrow, which means that I guess I should order some RAM.....suggestions? I'll get it set up mid next week when I get home.

    Turns out my G.Skill Sniper series RAM went bad. I have swapped my Corsair XMS3 Clasics into my new build and everything is awesome. I might swap the G.skills snipers for Corsair classics. I trust Corsair.

    Will be setting up boinc after optimizing my SSD. I re-installed windows for nothing :shadedshu

    Did the same for me but kept running- I split it into 2 partitions at one time and got fewer errors and no errors through a USB enclosure (SMART errors don't go thru the USB controller)... like I said you can mess with it if you wanted to but it had an issue.

    Okay update:

    New 8 core rig is up and running boinc flawlessly. Will have to wait until I swap out the bad ram to get the 2nd cruncher up and runninng. might take a 3-4 of weeks because I need a new hard drive for it too. Rent and bills need to get paid with next paycheck :(

    check my project build in my sig Ion.;)

    Ya, I'm getting BSOD's now even with my corsair ram. I'll do windows updates and see if that fixes it. Here is a pic of the BSOD (Glad I bought a digicam cuz the dump is so fast with an SSD)

    EDIT: This is BIOS set at default. The Ram from UltimateVortex 2 is in ultimatevortex now. The gskills would not allow a boot into windows hence they are toasted.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Thats alright. I got a few of them myself when I tried to run the windows setup on my new cruncher I am trying to put together tonight. I'm trying a different hdd right now. See how far this gets me.

    113 of 116 updates installed. I will try my game after this.

    I also read on the interwebz that if you're running an SSD that you should set it to ACHI or something like that in the bios. Apparently very important however not doing it would not cause BSODs I don't think.
