    X4 has been up and crunching for a bit over twelve hours at this point. It's certainly very hot and quite loud. Decently fast though, so there is that :toast:

    I got my laptop back from RMA - bad table lock up something, new firmware for the Intel 320 SSD and a clean install fixed it. I assume that I can get a power outlet on my flight to Lusaka so I don't waste more time. The i5-2520M is not substitute for this i7-2720QM.

    I might be off-line for some days but I downloaded enough work for a day or two.

    How hot is it running? Anything more than mid 40's on the cores and low 50's on the die may be a problem :twitch:

    55C on the die? That's a bit hot. IF you want to play a bit, try dropping the multiplier to 16x and up the NB to 2200 (11x).... should drop your temps a few degrees while maintaining the current output ;)

    *Note- temps actually aren't too bad If that's still the stock cooler that you're using.

    That's a stock cooler from a 95w FX-6 with Arctic Silver paste. Do you think it would be worthwhile to put my Gaia on it, or would this be OK for longterm non-crunching use?

    Stock heatpipe cooler is fine for non-crunching use.... may get a little noisy under load once in awhile that's all. Arctic Silver also needs a week or two to settle in so temps will drop a few degrees after that as well.

    That's a common fan for a cooling pad- can you put in a WTB ad somewhere local for a used or broken cooling pad and steal the fan out of it?
    A lot of times the USB cord gets torn out and the fans are still good (just pull the fan out of the old one, splice the wires into your unit and done!)

    Just uploaded a F@H WU and switching over to WCG. Should start dumping about 48 WU's in approx 2-4 hrs.

    :rockout:

    Although, it looks like some of those are going to take rather more than 4 hours to finish. If you had been running WCG when there were still C4SW WUs, you would have been able to get ~1400 a day done :eek:

    selected those projects back in 09' when I first started crunching. I cannot remember why I did select them.

    Actually, those projects didn't even exist back in 2009. Those have appeared since I stopped crunching in February 2011.


    I now have a RMA label from EVGA, so I'll be sending the motherboard in on Monday :toast:

    Then Berkeley has changed it up on me in the mean time. Are their certain projects we focus on as a Team?
