    I am crunching with a P4 2.8GHz 400FSB w/3 sticks of 256Mb RAM. It averages about 220 PPD and has been going strong 24/7 for just under a month.

    I am also crunching on 'This Old Comp' which is using a AMD XP2600+ @ 2 GHz w 2 gigs RAM, it averages about 130 to 140 PPD and runs 24/7 and is my main computer, also (writing this on it now).

    So, my internet connection is good, local Cable company and a new NetGear router. However, your P4 @ 3.35 is better than either of my current working machines!

    I have another cruncher on the bench, so to speak, with a bad HDD. It will be replaced soon and up and crunching. It's the best one I have, an AMD 64x2 running @ around 2 GHz. It hasn't run long enough to figure out an average, yet, but I'm betting it will outpace both of my other computers.

    So, chin up! You do not have the worst, i.e. slowest, on our team. In fact, until recently I wasn't the only one crunching with a Socket A! I'm not sure but I may be the only one left?

    :confused:

    Anyways, it's the work your doing that helps, numbers are just a state of mind! :D

    Wonder if my old 2,4 GHz Celeron Northwood is better or worse than your machines Arjai. :p

    My mom is currently using it as her computer, but I'll jack it if it ever gets free. :D

    Well it isn't right.

    Ya, it wasn't right. I fired her up just to install windows and Boinc and to see what the specs were then shut her down immediately.

    I got home today from work with a power cable from my IT dept. :rockout: and went to apply fresh TIM and reseat the HS and found it wasn't fully secured last night.

    Well now she's fully secured with fresh TIM and installing windows updates and this is what she looks like under full load :) Much better than last night (I do think the Max sensor is off on the CPU tho because when I clear min max it stays the same):

    [​IMG]



    Well I'll just run her at stock then...bios on this EVGA Mbo doesn't look too too impressive. But yes, nice card for sure. Oh and whoever my buddy got this from lapped the cpu.

    I'm not much of a Celeron fan...wimpy small cache's! That said, I prefer the AMD over Intel for purely irrational reasons but, I'm stickin' to them!! :D (I have to say, I am fairly impressed with the lack of problems this P4 and the previous P4 that are in this cruncher. Perhaps I got lucky with the P4 being one of Intel's more solid runners?)

    It is my first desktop, way before hardware began to interest me. Can't even remember when it was bought. :p

    But it did pretty well, but the GeForce 6800 was what really shone in a otherwise pretty budgetty computer. :p

    I briefly ran a CeleronDC, and while it was slower than a C2D clock-for-clock, it still did well (and sipped power) :toast:

    Hopefully next month I can grab FX 8120 or 8150, or at least an 6100 :D


    DDR3-1600 (PC12800) : http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=222

    I still find "Go Advanced" button when editing my post.

    EDIT : oh pops, if you mean the WYSIWYG option, then yes, also missing here.

    Another FX crunching... very nice :D

    Try to pick up the 8120/8150 if you can afford it. The full 8 cores are better for crunching.

    Make sure you have good cooling if you overclock- they can run a bit hot ;)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I do the same thing. I once left a rig running when I went on vacation and came back to a burned down system. Never again. That was one hell of a system at the time and still not sure as to what happened to it. As far as I can tell the vid card fan went out and and may have burned out some of the voltage circuits on the board. I oiled the fan on the card and it worked after that and everything else but the board made it through. Still I never used the card again. :(

    The 2600K is at work in a AC environment so that is good. I may ask to install it in our server rooms were it stays 68 deg 24/7

    Hehe yeah, I'll try to save some of my holiday bonus for the 8120/8150 :D.

    I'm curious, how hot are those chips? Let say if I overclock it at 4.2-4.5 Ghz?

    I wish I had a room at work that was a/ced all the time. I would so install a couple crunchers there. I the winter is no problem as the temps in the whole building stay around 60.

    4.2Ghz should be just fine with at least a CM 212+ or a self-contained water cooler (should keep the chip in the mid 40's while crunching). Going over that overclock tends to raise the heat and power draw significantly...

    My 6100 and 6200 run in the mid 30's crunching at stock clocks with the Xig Gaia/Night Hawk coolers on them... the 8150 runs mid 40's at stock with an old Xig Dark Knight.

    The C2D E8300 is sold, but I've added a (Conroe) E6300 in its place :toast:

    Okay so all 3 crunchers (FX-81so@4.2Ghz, 1055T@3.3Ghz and Q6600@2.4Ghz) now and full time. Let's see if I get a 4th star with that! :rockout:

    Do you get more PPD with linux X64 or Windows 7 X64?

    Also does anyone have a FULL tutorial on how to setup BIONC for linux?
