    1.15v 200x18 was 2 hours stable. Not gonna say I 100% trust it yet, but I'm just gonna let WCG and F@H be my stability tests while I'm slaving away at the mill and trying to get some much needed rest. It's hard, I don't feel tired at all cause I had to go and fall asleep for about 20 minutes after I got home and cleaned up... and I know I'm gonna be zombified all day tomorrow. :banghead:

    Oh well, at least my i7 will be slaving away right along with me, hopefully. :toast: If this works out I'll be happy with a solid 24/7 clock. 3.6 isn't too high, but I feel comfortable with it. I only have an h70, it's good but not the best, and it seems to clock the i7 920 very well you need the best cooling just short of high power TEC plates, phase change or ln2.

    Hey guys, long time no talk, but I've been plugging along as usual. Ordered some stuff over the weekend, including a $32 NZXT Source 210 (received today, nice cheap case), CM GX450 PSU, 4pk 120mm CM fans, $10 Rosewill WiFi dongle and a Rosewill IR thermometer gun on sale (for shits and giggles, but it would be nice to find temps of motherboard components like MOSFETs so I can extend the life of my equipment).

    Maybe I'll take some pics of my rigs when I'm not tearing them down to change random things, but for now I am greatly enjoying my production on both WCG and F@H. That i7-870 I got from Buck Nasty has been kicking ass, and I think I have finally figured out all the settings to make the system perfectly stable and not make me clear CMOS on reboot (typical Intel overclocking problem I seem to have). I think what really helped was leaving the RAM at 2:10 and setting the strap to the DRAM ratio. Not running at 4GHz, but 3.8 (173*22) is absolutely fine for my needs.

    Hope everything else is going alright with the rest of you, although a few might be facing some tough problems in real life. Hope things improve for those members soon. :)

    #'s are a bonus. The important thing is that you can crunch and making a difference. That's what matters the most.

    I am working so I can't attend everything at once and right away. I try to keep an eye on TPU as well. Multitasking FTW! :p

    So a little math, for the fun of it.

    - 20 threads@ 2.8GHz ~ 8.3K PPD per CPU
    - 60 threads ~ 24K PPD @ at over 9000!($)
    - i7 2600K bundles @ 4.5GHz ~ 6.7K PPD ($200-$300)
    - 9000/300 = 30 bundles
    - 30 x 6.7 = 201K PPD
    - 201K PPD > 24K PPD

    And all that means is that if I won the lottery I'd buy an airfield and fill it with i7's instead of a MP server. :laugh:

    That's interesting. I7's are just beasts at crunching.

    Quick question guys. Let's say it's confirmed and for sure you know that Windows is corrupt or bad or whatever and it's causing you to BSOD every couple of days. Would overclocking increase the frequencies of the BSOD's even if the overclock is stable?

    I would think so. Since you already have a screwed up OS in that case, and then you start changing settings on hardware... I would bet you'd get BSODs much more often.
