    Yep, all SSD's and hybrid drives should be set to ACHI in the bios. This could very well be what is causing your blue screens Chaotic. Hate to say this, but you should jump into your bios and set that which will require you to reinstall frigging Windows man. It probably will cure all, or at least most of your blue screens and issues bro.

    I was gonna ask for them since they're dead to add to a collection I'd like to start. I wana make a montage on the wall of a bunch of neat parts working or not. I think it'll be neat to have them around the shop. Thats a ways away though when I do eventually get a house and get to have my pc room/shop.

    It looks like all our work that got uploaded yesterday counts for today lol. Don't be surprised to see a really high input so far for this day. I did a lil when I noticed my 4th star is back finally lol

    Back to high heat again. Removed the overclock and put my rig offline for now. How you guys been dealing with the heat other than AC?

    Its not to bad heat wise hear. I have a rig in each rm so it doesn't get to hot in one rm. May be doing some rearranging tho this wkend. Might be putting my main rig in living rm with ac so its not in bedrm anymore making it a lil warm during the day.

    Hey mad, where do you guys get the pie info at? I see the pie chart on the team page but I don't see where top 20 list is unless I'm going blind

    Well I set the first 4 SATA ports to ACHI now and that wasn't the problem.

    The problem was a bad Intel LAN driver and it's now fixed. I followed these instructions:

    http://www.smartestcomputing.us.com...tcpipsys-bsod/page__view__findpost__p__164075

    EDIT: I did everything that caused the BSOD before the fix and it has not happened at all. Did a fresh install of WCG Boinc and now all is running fine. Going to replace the failed ram and pick up a spinner for my other cruncher. Everything should be full tilt again tonight. :)


    EDIT x2: So I got THIS HDD (good score at that price) and THESE RAM sticks for the new build and put the COrsair XMS Classics back in ULTIMATEVORTEX. Everything is working like a charm now. SSD is optimized both crunchers crunching away. :)

    Okay so both Crunchers are up and running :rockout: My overclock is back on Ultimatevortex and Ultimatevortex2 has a mild overclock at stock voltages.

    Everything is running great now, no BSODs; all drives in correct place. Everything is running smooth. :)

    I had to give up overtime at work to get all this going :( which is kind of paradoxical because I spent so much money putting it all together! :)

    I'll do overtime next week....60 Hours and that means I'm not at home gaming so more time for Ultimatevortex2 to keep crunching which means spot # 16 will be mine popswala! :p

    I like how you just had to throw that in there right at the end. Give me time and I'll have a few bigger rigs coming online and I won't need that spot any more. I'll get a higher one :p

    Just had the toughest work weeks of my life. Feels like my soul was sapped out of me! But I'm free again, (for the time being)!

    Good to see [Ion] around here again, hope it's a lengthy stay :toast:

    My crippled Xeons are back online, and added my 2700K although at lower clocks. Hopefully be somewhere in the the 28-30k region again. Worked hard enough I feel I deserve another 3930K, but that's a damn expensive reward :laugh:

    I'm sure that you deserve it ;)

    I had the "option" of getting some nice hardware or a new car for the wife. HW lost this time.

    On vacation away from my cruncher, and didn't feel like letting in run so long unattended, so won't be crunching for a while. :S

    Know the feeling. If you do want to leave it crunching get something like TeamViewer so you can control it remotely and have something like RealTemp to shut it down if it goes over a certain temp.

    Anyway, enjoy the holidays :toast:

    Thanks for the welcome! I probably won't be on a lot (I have college starting in August), but I intend to be crunching at a higher rate (I'm building an i7 next week and maybe another i7 or a FX later in the year).

    What's crippled about the Xeons?
    Enjoy the trip!
    TeamViewer is great. I love using that to monitor systems (particularly when I have several going but only one keyboard/monitor/mouse)...although I still shut down my systems when I'm gone because of electricity use.

    Good to hear you're ramping up but you may have seen how much harder it is to get pie these days! Some serious crunching goes on in TPU :respect:

    The IMC on one of the Xeons died. Then had trouble running the two Xeons stock. Stress tested for a few days after some tweaks and seems I finally got it stable. 24threads, but at just 2.2GHz; although that's infinitely better than 0 threads crunching on that machine.

    Kinda reminds me of the philosophy I had associated with your username "If [Ion] can get a toaster to crunch, he will" :)

    Try it out and find out. At worst it won't work and at best you'll be checking on your computer from every internet terminal you find abroad :laugh:
