    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Did your mommy pack you a good lunch today? Pb&J rocks man. Have a good day at school. It will be bedtime for us soon.

    Awesome, that's great! I'm hoping to get in the upper-2k PPD range; this will be my school laptop so it will get carried around to class. I'm hoping to get a solid 18-20 hours of crunching/day out of it.

    Cause I have my hosts set as private (not sure why, I'll go change it). I'm not really sure what you mean with the bolded part? :confused:

    The floating point and integer benchmarks BOINC runs, Im guessing.

    Hope your laptop is next to an outlet @ school :D

    I don't think I've ever expressed opinions about those :confused:

    Most of the classes I'm in are reasonably small, so I don't think it'll be an issue. There are also power plugs all over the library, and I've built myself an extra-long 65w Lenovo adapter (all in all, it has ~15ft of reach). I think I'll be good :D

    Ultimatevortex was down when I came home from work today so numbers are down. Will get rid of the admin account so when it powers up it will restart boinc.

    If you aren't doing GPU crunching, you could also install BOINC as a service, so it will crunch even if you aren't logged in ;)

    Well, I live alone and even if I had a hottie I'd trust her not to screw up the machines. so I'll just get rid of the admin account ( it shouldn't be enabled anyway) and all will be good. Thanks ION :)

    no offense

    but im sure you could find some other place on forums for all thos OT talk?

    sure wcg team thread is a pretty loose one from time to time, and i can 110% understand that sometime we share personal problems and feeling with the team, and why our systems may be down and such

    but that ^^^^ got nothing to do with it at all, so please, find another place on forums to ask for help on fonts

    or on generalnonsense.net

    again, its not to be rude, but really, there need to be a line somewhere imo.

    Fair enough, I'm willing to concede I might have said that :roll:

    I'm considering picking up this Xeon and a H77 board for my new computer; what do you guys think? Good deal, or should I try and find a used 2600k & Z77?

    Still kicking!!

    Hi guys! I have been relatively sleep free for about a week. Sleeping in a big room with 60 other guys snoring and farting a concerto of annoyance has weakened me to the point of losing it!!

    I will keep this short as I have to go sign up for a bed daily at 5pm. There are options but, the guy I need to speak with, a Chaplin, wasn't in today, the buy a bed program sold out by the time I got back from my required TB screen...:banghead:

    Anyways, I am working part time now at a Jiffy Lube across town. They don't pay much but, I will be advancing along to a higher paid job, probably, next month.

    So, there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel. However, this train ain't moving very fast! Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang...I think I can (repeat, ad nausium).

    Take care guys, I'll check in again in a while. I'm finding that life actually goes on without Internet and TV. It's just a bit different and time moves slower!

    Arjai out!! :toast:

    Hang in there, I thought I was falling on rough times not too long ago, heh...

    Looks like I'm much closer to upgrading Dragonfly with an x6 than originally thought. I may have it by the end of the week, even.

    Got the HP C2Q system up and crunching at work at 50% 24/7 until I sell it. I'd make it crunch harder but the CPU cooler on it isn't much better than stock and our upstairs AC is only on during the day on week days. :shadedshu

    I plan to move it downstairs to our server room with has 3 huge AC's cooling it 24/7. :D

    How much are you looking to sell it for?

    Presumably even a stock cooler should be fine for 100% load, right? Surely Intel wouldn't ship CPUs with coolers that wouldn't keep them alright :confused:

    My new E430 is looking like it could even do 4-4.5k PPD running 24/7 :)

    I don't seem to be able to handle a high uncore. At 3400, it eventually gives me a BSOD. Beyond that, it just doesn't work at all. I believe the value that affects uncore stability is CPU VTT, which is at 1.2v right now. Is unstable 3400 and beyond typical with 1.2v CPU VTT?

    Selling the whole rig to a co-worker at a deal for $200.

    Unless he bails on me that is. Doubtful. Stock coolers with a CPU at 100% normaly, yes. But with HP bios they limit all fans, CPU and case fan, etc. to like 30% usage no matter what. which is kinda a pain in the ass to deal with.

    I'm likely selling my AMD X2 this week, if I do though then I'll probably splurge for a higher-end i7 for my new build....if I can get a 2600k @ ~4.2-4.5GHz, that should be 6k+ PPD :)

    I wish the best for you, my friend. Stay strong!
    Very happy to know that you're in a good spirit and LOL about "Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang" :D:D

    Btw, thanks to Norton for suggesting adding 2nd fan to my GAIA. It works like a charm.
    Change Xigmatek default fan to 2 Enermax TB Silence and the result is core temp goes down 1-2C AND socket temp (CPUTIN) goes down to + 45C! (from 51-53C) :toast:
