    keep an eye on your results... you may end up needing to drop your o/c back just a bit for that voltage.

    I tested more extensively this time... for 3.8GHz I only tested for 20 passes of LinX, this time it was 200 passes.

    Yeah, 200 is standard for me... dunno why I went with 20 last time.

    My Pentium DC lost internet access over the weekend, but kept crunching from buffer. Dumped all of the WUs now, should get a nice boost today :D

    Also, my new build is starting to shape up:

    Now I just need a CPU & mobo and it'll be ready.

    I've been offered a 2700k and an Asus Z68 from KieX for a great price...so unless that falls through, those. If so, I'll probably pick up an AMD X8

    Sorry, but i just realised that with a P4 none can Crunch and even i get an i5 I am a more gamer type so i won't get much time for it.:rolleyes:

    So i am decided to leave WCG/BONIC and it is final.


    So Chicken Patty if you are seeing this then please add me to the Members Left list.

    Playing and crunching is possibly to do at the same time. :)

    But do what you feel is right. :)

    Understanding? Oh no no no. You just get back to crunching! :p



    Nah, it's your hardware, I'm in no position to judge how you use it.

    Just remember TPU/BOINC if you get a machine doing nothing. :)

    Sorry to hear that gopal :(

    Hope you reconsider at some point and join back up. Every Team member and every point that we generate is important and for a good cause....

    You can always just take a little break and not crunch for a while to think about it without officially leaving the Team. That decision is up to you though :eek:

    All the best to you friend :toast:

    Sorry to see yo go man. But you can crunch and still play. Just crunch when your not playing. You can also change the setting in wcg to stop crunching after the cpu hits a certain load point. But if you do go I do hope you will make it back in the future. :toast:

    A lot of games play nice with WCG, even at 100% load. Really the only game I play on my PC anymore is SUPCOM2. It's a bit of an oddball in PC performance though, the biggest thing performance wise in that game is the SIM score, which is a measurement of your CPU power... and the game can only run as fast as the lowest SIM score (when playing online with other people). While running WCG my sim does drop by 1-2, but the 920 is still powerful enough to be faster than most players even while handicapped. In rare situations where I'm the lowest sim score, I'll pause WCG to prevent from being the one slowing everything down.

    Sorry to hear you go Gopal. Best wishes with gaming on your new i5 when you get it.

    To everyone else, I must drop the number of crunchers while still experiencing 30 c + daytime temperatures. Not because the crunchers can't handle it but because the heat overloads the circuit breaker on days that hot.

    Cool weather should be here soon though, let's hope.

    Packed away 4 machines in preparation for dumb inspection tomorrow, and my P55 system decided to scare me as usual by blank screening when windows reaches the desktop a few times and then not booting at all, but I unplugged it again for 10 minutes and it decided to work again.

    I swear, my EVGA P55 FTW seems to be one of the most easily butthurt motherboards I have. If you unplug it or turn it off for a few minutes it blanks out on the desktop after a minute in Windows, but if you unplug it again and retry it somehow works again until the next time it's unplugged. If you turn on vdroop control it blue screens or blanks out. It seems like if you do almost anything past 170 BCLK it takes a shit, or if the voltage is too high without vdroop control or whatever it throws a fit. It's also the only system I have that has the most useless BSOD I have ever seen:

    Code:
    hardware malfunction
    
    call your hardware vendor for support
    
    *the system has halted*
    I can't wrap my head around why this board has so many issues. I can't even run the thing at 3.8GHz anymore without a freeze or BSOD or something else stupid, and it takes 1.35v vcore/1.3v VTT just to do 3.66 GHz.

    I hope not. Either way, a new CPU or new board for that platform is nearly $200. Hopefully it continues working for a while or I can find out why it is being so agro recently. Maybe I should pull the GPUs first (a GTX 470 and GTX 465) and make sure those are alright, though once the system actually boots without blanking out in Windows, it has zero issues until it gets power cycled.

    Well they're all up and crunching right now, unlike last night this time, I had to leave 3 of them off.

    It only reached a high of 23C today and rained all day. So the breaker is holding out. Hopefully tomorrow doesn't reach the predicted high of 28c.

    Both the i5-2520M and i5-2500k went offline over the past few days (one guy was concerned about the heat in his room, so we turned the AC colder, the other guy needed his laptop blown out)....but both are back crunching again now. Should be close to 5k PPD between the pair...we'll see if they'll actually stay going this time :)

    You had to "pack away 4 systems" for an inspection?

    What type of inspection requires you to stop running 4 of your computer systems?
