    I'm right sorry to hear about that Brandon. :(

    How much would you be looking to get for the i7-920 + GB X58 + RAM? I might be able to make space for a 3rd desktop here, and I'd love to keep it crunching for the team.

    Hopefully that truck will serve you well :ohwell:

    I will try to get a FS thread up soon once I have made my decision.

    I will also be wanting to unload the rest of my windows 7 COA's quicker so will lower the price by quite a bit for crunchers.

    CFSW project seems to be closed.
    I have just received these messages to each CFSW task:

    Sorry to hear that Brandon. Would love to pick up a system or two but I won't have any more money for a while. :(

    Hopefully the truck works out well for you, love those old Chevy trucks.

    I've been getting that as well--and I've also seen pages and pages of "Error" results for C4SW (strangely, there weren't so many errors a couple days ago, but now I'm flooded by them). Tragic, too, because in another ~3 days I would have gotten my emerald badge in C4SW :ohwell:

    EDIT: They aren't over after all:
    http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread?thread=33666


    On a more positive note, I'm consistently getting ~23 hours of crunching a day out of my i7 laptop, thanks to an extra-long AC adapter and a strategic choice of seats :toast:

    Sounds like you are successfully grabbing the outlets before the swarms of MacBook Pro college students do. :rolleyes:

    Actually, surprisingly few students here have laptops in class--and those that do don't plug them in :)

    That's interesting, I'm surprised that you're getting almost exclusively HCC WUs. Perhaps it's that WCG realizes that tasks take longer on the Pentium 4 and give you shorter work units

    This is a comment to post #18170 (Stingers 4x4 rig)

    Four times 115 W TPU and it produces around the same http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=host&proj=bwcg&hostid=2130125 as one i5-3570 (3800 PPD) with only 100 watt at the wall. I Know what I would buy. The Intel PPD numbers is only from a 46 hour burn in for the PC I got for my mother. I used to have a old Intel based server (4x2) and it did 1100 PPD and was keeping my meter spinning and me awake in the night. 4x4 systems are much better used in folding where there is bonus for fast return of WUs.

    I know that F150's 4x12 was doing great (23 kPPD) but PPD/watt/$ wise go for a new Intel single CPU setup on Linux. Check my Linux "box" that yields 2500 PPD for two cores (slow but new Intel Xeon) http://http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=host&proj=bwcg&hostid=1910143

    The P4 is a pretty slow CPU to start with, and Hyperthreading only makes things slow. That being said, those projects are slow even on my i7 ;)
    I assume that your Xeon setup draws ~100w or so at the wall?

    As far as PPD/W goes, i7 laptops are hard to beat, mine does just under 4k PPD for ~65w AC. That being said, at over twice the price of a desktop i7, it would take a long time to pay off purely for WCG.

    For FAH, where PPD doesn't scale linearly with additional cores, I can see that a 48-core system would make sense, but for WCG it's hard to beat a single-CPU IVB or SB setup (particularly running Linux off of a flash drive to bring down initial costs).

    The FX-6200 rig is back up and running! :rockout:

    Need to go to the site tomorrow and get the wireless connection setup but that shouldn't be an issue and it has plenty of wu's loaded up and ready to run until then :)

    I scrapped my anemic Sony VAIO P4 desktop (which I was using as my office computer to screw around on the internet) for some parts, and got an old de-lidded Opteron 170 (2GHz dual core/Skt 939) running and overclocked to 2.8GHz (great stepping). It probably only gets about 1000 PPD but it's the last decent system up my sleeve that I have parts to operate. Running an ancient ATX PSU with an 11.5v rail but it does the job (until it blows up or something). Rest of my systems are single cores and not worth buying more parts for, so they are in line to replace whatever currently running systems break.

    You may be surprised with the s939. It may get between 1.5k to 2k ppd. I am getting between 1k and 1.2k with my s939 4400+ at 2.2. :toast:
