Bummer man. . But thats an easy fix at least.
Yea I have the HDD that Edward had sent me so I will install that and try to get windows install soon as I can.
I want to OC this I7-920 so hopefully I can get windows install and do some OCing
What cooler do you have on that 920 Brandon?
Coolit Domino ALC water cooler
Any good? I'm asking because if it's giving you good temps and you have a good chip, you can do some good overclocking on it. I did 4732 on air with mine and 4.4 GHz came stable at like 1.33v or something like that.
Its ok but not as good as an H50 or so. It also only has the option for one 120mm fan. The design is horrible for anything higher end.
Ah okay. I know the time I crunched at 4.4 GHz that thing was putting out some nice PPD.
I will probably try to get it to atleast 4Ghz if the temps are good. The chip is a D0 so should get there with lower voltage. The only thing I worry about is the ram being mismatched and low speeds. I want to shoot for 21X191 with about 1.3V Vcore.
That should be possible. I ran at that for a bit on my C0. But eventually ran it a bit lower at 3.8GHz. My D0 I always ran it at least at 4.2 GHz. But I did have pretty decent cooling.
I'm tapped out on spending right now. I could use an HDD as I have an Athlon x 2 sittin around collecting dust with a bad HDD. Maybe if I run a chkdsk on it it might become salvageable...let me try it...
Post in crunchers helping crunchers. Maybe somebody has something.
The small wonders of knowing your hardware.
While perusing the laptop section of the local Bilka(Fairly big store), I came across a Asus laptop which boasted on the spec. sheet in front of it, a E-450 and Intel HD 6320 Graphics.
Also, anybody know how reliable the temp sensor(s) for Llano APU's are?
I might, but after all of the issues I've been having, I'm just enjoying a stable PC for now. Sure, I could almost certainly get 10% higher, and I probably will, but I just don't have the energy to fight with it ATM
On the other hand, a 10% PPD boost would be cool, and if I can pick up the 2700k from KieX then I'll probably shoot for ~4.5GHz
^ I see what you did there
going sleep you guys if i don't i am gonna cry (12:35AM)
Later dude. Hope you have many dreams of sexy Hardware
yup, I will go to sleep at 1:00AM (12:45AM NOW) At what time do you sleep?
Power cut now going to shut my pc power cut because i huge storm coming
Usually later than that, gotta stay up keeping an eye on things around TPU
So, looks like after a few changes at work I'll likely be made redundant in a couple months time. Talk about trends, eh? Mind you, this is by no means a bad thing.. it's a new beginning! Goodbye to stress and hello to health and fitness. There's a world of possibilities out there and it's time (again) to explore them.
I started crunching December '09 when I was unemployed after a redundancy. Seems that I'm going full circle. So I'll be letting my home rigs finish their WU's and then turning them off to save on electricity bills. The 3930K that I took to the workplace will carry on until I need to bring it home sometime in November.
Good thing most of my SandyBridge fleet is still in the team with other crunchers So I'm dimming down the lights until I can rebuild another farm. Even if with just one PC, I'll crunch with the TPU I love till I got nothing else to crunch
Damn man, another great individual loosing a job. Seems so normal nowadays heh? As I always say, I wish you the best, make the best out of it. I hope you survive well and that you can stay on your feet. Anything you need we are here for you man, you know how to find me personally.
Good luck in whatever you do man. You're an asset here regardless of the crunching you do or how many rigs you have
Good luck KieX and glad to see your are looking at this as a new start and not as something bad.
I'm sorry to hear about that, but I wish you the best in your last few months of work and the greatest luck in finding a new job
If you're no longer interested in selling the SB combo for that price, that's fine, I understand if you need the money.
Sincere thanks guys. You know, there's a quote that I think applies to bad situations: "You can't change the cards you're dealt although you can change how you play them." - Randy Pausch
My circumstances don't change anything A promise is a promise and it wouldn't make me very deserving of help if I didn't commit to helping others. So the deal still stands, though won't be able to sort out the RMA until next week.
