    Oh damn, they're 771. I was considering buying them if they were 775.

    stupid mouse. Was just about to click send and i accidentally hit the back button. Now I gotta type it all over again.

    Thanks for the link Norton. Any info on if there any good or can oc any? just need to find a cheap/oc friendly board. Are there dual skt boards that can take just reg ram and not server sticks as I don't have any? I never played with server stuff and trying to go cheap as possible.

    You know I just realized something. My main rig is running Windows Vista while 2 of my crunchers are running Win 7. Leave it to me .

    All systems are go, I'm reporting and fetching new work now :toast:
    I'm sorry to hear that CP, I wish her the best of luck :toast:

    That looks like a LGA771 version of the Core 2 Duo E6550, which should do ~1k PPD or a tad less. Not great, but certainly better than nothing :toast:

    if nothing works out and I can't get any parts to build that rig. I may just sell the cpu. Time will tell.

    I would imagine that it's an official university-sponsored thing there, not some student. Perhaps later on I'll ask and see if there's any way a limited deployment of, say, 5 PCs could be done :toast: :cool:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    After the wcg issues the last couple days I reset my buffers to 3 days on all rigs. Now I have a issue with one of the x6's. The thing will not have more then 6 work tasks at a time. I tried lowering and upping the buffer from 3 days and compared all settings to my other x6 system (all the same). Anyone have this issue before? It will not load up on work at all. It has just enough to cover the cores it has.

    Well, I was hoping to return to college on Monday with a spare Core 2 Duo board to crunch on, but the board (an Asus P5N-E) is dead. I may bring a Pentium D, but I'm not sure if it's even worth my time for something that old...

    Nah, Pentium D isn't worth it. I'm a big fan of the bigger chips like my 920 with 8 threads, or my x6 with 6 threads, or the "8" core bulldozers...

    If I ever won big on the lottery I'd build some kind of crazy quad socket system.

    “You mustn't be afraid to dream bigger, darling.” I'd say blade servers with a ton of those drop in, no video out Nvidia compute cards.

    I have free electricity, so that isn't an issue, it's just space. I'd assume it will do ~500 PPD. I'm contemplating bringing it to run my 8800GTS in for FAH, I heard that the Fermi and earlier cards don't get along too well. We'll see I guess.

    That's why I like the bigger buffers (I use 7-10 days). Unless something goes horribly wrong, they're pretty much impervious to downtime issues like the one we just had. Set yourself a big buffer like mine... minimum buffer 7 days, max buffer 10 days. It won't look like much right now, but once things get back up to speed your pcs will be flooded with work to do. This is what my buffer looked like during the downtime... notice the scrollbar! The config file that makes you automatically send units in as soon as they're done helps too, that way as soon as a unit is finished it goes out and another comes in to take its place.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    All my rigs are set to 3 days right now and all are flooded with work except one. It is only getting enough work to cover the cores it's running (6). No extra work is under the task tab except the six units it has running. It should at the very least have a page full of work pending if not more. My other x6 unit has at the very least 40 units to do.

    Whats up guys, been busy lately and just got around to checking the status of my crunchers and found one has been locked on BSOD 101 for a number of days :( Do not know what this means but rebooted and its back up for now. I will leave the monitor on to see if it does it again. If it does I will take the cruncher down off my list and sell.

    I dunno... it should clear up over time. Anyway, my suggestion to move to a bigger buffer still stands.

    x101 generally means increase vcore (or drop clockspeed)

    Hopefully it does. I have tried a bigger buffer (10 days) with it to try and get it to download more work and no go. I will post up a screen shot in a bit. But in the screen shot you posted under that same task with a 3 to 10 day buffer it will only have 6 tasks.

    Maybe getting degradation. It has ran at 4Ghz 1.245V for a long time but if it does it again I will bump volts slightly.

    Okay here is a screen shot showing what I mean. And this is with a 3 day buffer. It just won't download extra tasks.

    I've had similar happen to me, just give it some time to clear up. If you're still seeing the same after a week or so, reinstall boinc.
