    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Bd do a a great job at crunching and my 1055t's do right around 3500 ppd at 2.8. They have been low for the last few days due to all the issues with wcg, well all my rigs have.

    I'm supposed to be selling my AMD X2 for $150 tomorrow, in which case I'll be that much closer to another cruncher. Assuming the sale goes through, whenever KieX gets his board RMA'd I'll purchase the combo from him.

    Sorry guys i am not running WCG for 3 hrs because i am saving my first game play video so it is taking 78% CPU so i cannot run WCG if i do then i get a BSOD.

    SO i am not running WCG for 3 hrs

    I'm going to talk to some of my hall-mates and see if they might be interested in joining, I have a friend from HS with a 2500k @ 4.4 that I'm particularly interested in sweet-talking. Will do this after my test today, wish me luck! :toast:

    Passed the test, now I don't have to take an "Introduction to Computers" class :roll:
    Wow, that's a kickass deal! I picked up a C2D Macbook about two years ago for $45, and I was pretty happy with that one :D

    Calculus III, Physics II, an Introduction to Engineering class, a swimming class, a Honors Literature Seminar (not what I wanted, but it was mandatory) and a seminar about science & technology and its impact on society.

    What the hell did you have to take a test on "introduction to computers" for then?

    I guess what I was asking is; what is your major?

    Undecided Engineering (leaning towards Computer Engineering) and History.

    The "Introduction to Computers" class is required of all freshman engineering students unless they can test out ;)

    Looks like the i7 spit out a bunch of errors a few days ago. Gonna really have to keep an eye on that one... I changed some settings since then to my newfound 24/7 supposedly rock solid stable overclocked settings. Gonna have to see if it produces errors as it is now.

    You're almost past that as of FreeDC's last update :toast:

    Why wouldn't you need "Intro to Computers" Do you have experience with computers??? :D :roll::roll:

    You will get 1 more- WCG closes out the day at 12 PM GMT/8pm (Eastern Time) ;)

    FreeDC updates can be chaotic at times but it's usually 3 or 4 updates per day...

    Anybody here ever played with AMD Llano chips?

    Undervolting is an odd business with them. While most other CPU's seems to get 1 type of BSOD from too low voltage, my A6-3500 just seem to take one from the hat.

    So far I've gotten BSOD codes: a, 3b, 1a, 101 and fc.

    Look up. Look way up.
    go for it ION. Engineering is where the money is at. Before my divorce sent me into a downward spiral I was accepted as a mature student into the Engineering program (conditional acceptance based on my pure and applied marks I got as an independent student) so I encourage you to works towards that, it is how the world is shaped. Everything you look at, use, touch, push, pull, drive, play, and crunch with started as an idea in an engineers head. Even the coca cola cans and beer cans we drink from were engineered to use the least amount of aluminum to hold the most amount of liquid. And that is actually simple Calculus (modeling and optimization, damn fun stuff I tell you).

    And yes, all engineering students, whether it be civil, mechanical, electrical, electronic or computer take the same classes the first year. then you branch out into your specialties. computer is an excellent choice. Get ready to study your brains out though, I mean like 80 hours a week. And keep your GPA high otherwise your screwed. Engineering requires perfection.

    Hope fully we stay strong here on TPU (I intend to do so) and I can live vicariously through you! :toast:

    Well said! :toast:

    But you forgot "flush" and "environmental" :D just as important as any of the other activities and disciplines under Engineering.

    Take some time out of the books and go out in the field when you have the opportunity. It will give you important experience towards your career beyond school :rockout:

    Got all of my pieces in for my next rig :)

    Specs (some of this is temporary):
    - ASUS M5A97 Evo board
    - 965BE cpu
    - Xig Dark Knight cooler (original model)
    - 4 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 (1 stick)
    - MSI 6870 Hawk
    - 320 GB WD HDD
    - case (Raidmax Iceberg for now)

    Should have it together and crunching for the Team by the middle of the week :rockout:

    Awesome!

    I've set up my computers in BOINCView for easy monitoring:

    I've sold a C2D laptop, so that puts me $150 closer to KieX's SB combo :toast:

    I asked my friend with the 2500k if he would be willing to run WCG on it, and he's thinking it over :toast:

    How you liking that boinc view? does it run the same with the same options and settings you can make on the one we all use?

    I might look into it.

    Norton- I see that iceberg case isn't ever going to rest. lol. I like it for the fact its aluminum which absorbs the cold in the rm and keep it cool and the top looks like a rad to help keep cool since heat inside the case rises. Its a neat case. May still look at getting it off ya one day lol.

    The Iceberg will stay around as my spare unless someone needs it/wants to cover shipping on it when it's not in use. Top has 2 fans in it but Raidmax sealed them up in there.. they actually sandwiched and spot welded the top panel pieces around the fan :shadedshu

    Here's the old girl with the new build in it (about 90% complete):

    Will probably get the HDD in it tomorrow night and fire it up :D

    Looks good Norton! :toast:
    That's quite the GPU for just a cruncher :roll:
    What clock speed are you planning on?

    Pops, I'm not quite sure what you're asking. BOINCView is a way that I can show the BOINC status of multiple rigs all together, in order to make it easier to keep track of the crunching of all of them. I'm quite happy with it, that way for my PentDC I don't even have to hook it up to the monitor (will be particularly good once I add the other i7 to the mix).
