    My cruncher is currently 100 km away... A bit hard to try anything on it. ;(

    Realized a bit too late that I would be going away from it. :S

    Do you think that a temperature of 70°c is acceptable for a laptop running boinc?

    My i7 860 sold today so I'm down to the 2600k only for now. Have some parts I will use to rebuild a second cruncher with in the fall or so.

    What CPU? I've run Intel CPUs into the low 70s, but eventually you should get a cooling pad or something.

    24 threads (I assume 2x 6c/12t CPUs?) is still phenomenal. Even at a low clock speed.

    Crunching on a toaster would be impractical; their power draw is ~1kw :p
    That being said, once I don't have to worry about the power bill, basically my only concern will be space, so I could even see setting up some Pentium Ds to run WCG...I can get a Pentium D system for less than $30, so it could be worthwhile. I just have to hope the fan noise doesn't bother my roommate :p
    That's probably fine, my C2DM crunches in the low 70s and the Atom is in the uper 60s.
    How much did the 860 sell for?
    Any idea what this new cruncher will be?

    Might be finding a boinc fix by letting my laptop crunch. :D

    The noise might make it fail, but I'll see what the other people in the house say.

    got a quick question. When I first started crunchin on wifes lappy. Its a 4c/8t cpu. it was using all the threads. I just checked it and now its only running 4threads. Any way to get crunching on the other threads? the cpu is a i7 720QM 1.60GHz running at 1729MHz. lol I guess crunching up it a tiny tad.

    The entire computer went for just north of $500, but the majority of that is going straight to paying off my dog's vet fees I've been charging over the last 60 days.

    As far as the next cruncher- no solid plans yet. I have an ASUS 1155 p67 motherboard, an ASUS GTX 460 768MB, and a Corsair H60 laying around so I might consider building another i7. On the other hand, the market is getting saturated with 3930K CPUs so I might try to liquidate (again) and finally move over to a single x79 6 core setup like I wanted to do last month.

    I'd put a cooling pad on that thing or limit the CPU resources for that particular CPU.

    Throwing in a little blast from the past this morning...

    A post from when I joined up on 2/19/2012 with only a PII 720BE crunching for the Team :)

    P.S> that 720BE is still crunching but it's in jstn7477's farm now :D

    A couple ideas:
    • Is Hyperthreading enabled (Check CPU-Z to verify)
    • How many CPUs have you said BOINC can use (you can change this under Computing Preferences)
    • How hot is the CPU getting? If it's quite hot, you might just want to stay with 4 at a time
    Welcome aboard! :toast:
    If you do decide to sell, I'd probably be game for buying some/all of that.

    So my laptop is 65-66°c while crunching. It does have a cooling pad, it's locked to pstate 2 and up(1500, 1200 and 800MHz) and undervolted.

    And welcome baggpipes. :)

    All seems OK here. My points are running lower than normal but communication with the server is fine.

    What kind of problem are you having?

    Look up. Look way up.
    So everything is running smoothly now on both crunchers. got a nice overclock back on ultimatevortex1:

    And ultimatevortex2 seems happy with the corsair vengeance sticks running them without a hitch @ 1866Mhz! :)

    How is that FX-8150 doing for daily tasks, gaming, and etc...?

    Have you run it long enough to to give it a +1 or a -1?

    All of my FX's are running great- very happy with their performance so far :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Glad your build is working smoothly man :toast:

    Mine hit the crapper. Board is getting sent off to RMA monday. so the build is put off for atleast 2 to 3 weeks. :( I been having some bad luck here lately with builds. I think i'll fix my juju tonight with a build from the past. :toast:
