    singing in restarts boinc and it downloads all new projects. So I lose what all it was already working on and already completed. I did that on the other rig that screwed up on me. So now I have 2 of the same rig listed in my devices on my wcg profile lol

    * i just noticed my time was way off. saying it was round 3:30 am lol. I changed that thinking it might be screwing with boinc but nothing. hmm. gonna look on there site and see if I can find anything but that'll be later.

    Just a heads up. I got this today. Only thing missing was a hard drive and a power cable. I got a hard drive in it (my data drive from my new rig for now) and I'll get a power cord for the PSU on friday when I get paid. As of friday I'll have 3 crunchers with 18threads total. I will see about oc'ing the Q6600 on the weekend.

    Guess how much? $50 :D

    Nice score! I found some locals on some site, a while ago, with some great deals. Problem is, even great deals are hard to justify while working day labor jobs to pay rent...someday!

    I have visions of a couple of shelves in the laundry room with a healthy farm of crunchers. A boy can dream, yes? ;)

    If you believe, your dreams can become reality. I bout my first major built in late 2008. I'm not rich but a lot can happen in 4 years when you put your mind to it. ;)

    I know that I will find a real job and have money again. The discouraging part is I thought it would have happened already! I have plans to get back in school so, I WILL get to my dreams, albeit, a bit later than wanted.

    No worries! :p

    You got that for $50.... :eek: Well done!....is there something messed up with the temp sensor? :wtf:

    Added a 2GHz PentDC T4200 tonight...not a ton, but should do ~650 PPD or so, and is nearly silent (and power consumption should be ~50w) :)

    90 ºC = 194 ºF...Core temps have got to be off. The system temps seem more real, although a little warm for my taste!

    I ran my i7 at 90F for a bit before I got my LC setup...but I wouldn't suggest it for anything long-term. I like to stay not much above 70c for 24/7 crunching :)

    I run my GPU fan at 50%, at startup, and my GeForce 6600gt site at: 62.4 ºC = 144.32 ºF, most of the time.

    On occasion, I will mildly OC it and bump the fan up to 80%. Just so it doesn't get warmer than the mid 70C's. Usually no higher than 74C, or i will go 100% for a minute or two.

    It's an old, used, GPU and I don't wanna fry it anytime soon! Maybe, if I get a newer one for This Old Comp, unlikely, I will see how hot I can get it. Pop some popcorn, maybe! :D

    Ya they are kinda crazy temps. When I got to my buddies house (he got it for free) I took off the HS to look at the die. It was lapped; :shadedshu couldn't tell what it was and he had no idea. So I brought it home and only ran it enough time to intall windows, CPUz, HWmonitor and Boinc. it is now just wating for a new power cord and some TIM....then me learning the bios. :)

    FreeDC does that every morning.... just shows the last 10 new members on the team before the first daily update, it doesn't mean you have Pie

    However, it nice to see a slice of a "Pie" with your name on it when you first start out isn't it?? :)

    *Note @gopal- watch your double and triple posting. It's really not a good habit to get into on this forum. Better thing to do is to edit your post ;)

    Ooh, and that's the nice version of the GTX260 too! :toast:

    As far as OCing goes, I wouldn't count on much, the nVidia 6-series chipset was terrible and takes a lot of coaxing. I had a MSI 680i board that wouldn't take my C2Q Q6600 past 2.7GHz
