    hmm, I have an extra 775 & amd backplate and a few screws. I got with cm bout a wk ago and should be getting some extra extra as I thought I lost some. I had to go thru all my cm coolers and sort them all out lol.

    you need the mount to the cooler also and the screws right? just not the backplate

    I have the same issue with my 1045T on an Asrock AM2+ board. ATM I have no way to replace the motherboard, but it can run at 80% BOINC. It's not overheating or overclocking issue, I'm sure.
    I read somewhere that the motherboards that run continuously, may require replacement of the lithium battery. I can not imagine how it might be related, but at the end of the week I will try to replace it.

    P.S. Tried three different power supply - no change.

    SUCCESS! I took off the water cooler and installed the stock cooler and BAM! POST! The issue I see is that the CPU socket has a thick backplate as well and is causing my water cooler to be way to tight. I may try reinstalling but only giving about 3 turns per mounting screw to see if that will hold it and allow it to boot properly.

    Well CMOS Battery need replacement every 2 years but it won't help in that case cmos battery can help if you pc is not starting due to cmos battery failure (example; Remove you CMOS battery and try to run the pc it will never start) and also if your pc was off for 5-6 months then it will need replacement

    Hmmm I dunno, this is the first time it has ever happened to me before. I may go to ace hardware and get some longer screws to release some stress.

    Well I have just started back up my 2600K, Seems to have had a power failure or outtage at my work building cause the PC was off. I have it back on and its back to crunching full speed!

    It happens brothah. Remember I had the same issue with that Max 3 Gene? For those that didn't know, I couldn't run my Dark Knight at all on that board. Also I think that was partially the case with the UD3R but may have damaged some of the pins causing an issue on any other cooler ;)

    @Norton
    Nah, I am at my limit with rigs right now. What I do need to find is someone with a spare PCI SATA card or an AM2 board to run a 3800+ in to upgrade the NAS.

    Yeah I'm 50/50 on whether or not they will due to physical damage. I mean they should because it was not from your use. Thinking manufacturer defect.

    OK ok, not trying to be stubborn. PM me what you got, Mr. B. :)

    Looks like WCG is having server issues again... first no upload, now it uploads but doesn't report.

    I have about 60 WU's waiting to be reported :(

    ** EDIT- now they seem to be reporting :) **

    Crap, I had problems with my X6. For some reason it was only crunching on 3 of 6 cores. Updated to the latest version of Bonic and all is well. :D

    Linux completes the WU's faster than windows so you have a higher WU completion per day and therefor more runtime per day too. Fastest way to earn badges as a result. Points wise each WU gets slightly less points than the Windows counterparts, so it tends to even out in terms of PPD.

    Hey guys just wanted to give everyone an update on why my numbers are down. I had major power outages on Friday and brown outs over the weekend.. It sucks, but everything is back up and running strong. I'll be adding a 2600k tomorrow and maybe another in a few days. :toast:

    Steam is not quite there...

    And Steam is in fact the only reason why I am not fully on Linux by now....

    Thanx to KieX and ThE_MaD_ShOt for confirming :toast:
