Wish I could get the same PPD as you guys.
Even what I'm doing certainly doesn't come easy, currently I have three i7 Quads, 2 C2Ds, and a PhII X4 going 24/7. It's loud, makes the room quite warm, and must cost quite a bit in electricity.
What you're doing with your X6 is still very impressive
Consistency wins over anything else..... I can't keep running at this pace forever. Although, it would be nice if I could
@RadEd ditto on what Ion said!
Even if you can't keep this up, you still have a lot going
And I still have quite a few targets in the Team, and I'm #3 by RAC in my adopted country
My PPD comes from my X6, Lauren's Phenom II 945 X4, the C2D rig I made for my mom, and my work C2Q.
All of them are pretty much in use a lot, so they don't crunch often. Only my X6 crunches at 100%, Lauren's machine is set to 90% because her X4 is a hot running chip.
Everything else is on stock cooling, so they are only at 50-60%.
GLaDOS is my main rig, although I reinstall the OS every few months or so.
I do like GLaDOS as a name...Portal really is very fun
The X4 certainly is a hot-running chip. I'd say that your C2D and C2Q should be capable of 100% load--if not, do you want a new cooler for the C2Q? I have a flower-style Zalman one that I can send your way if it would help
You know I am hoping they RMA this board and give me back say a 880G or AM3 style board. Would rather have DDR3
That would be sweet brandon if they would.
That 1055t system you have is very capable of 3.5 to 4k ppd.
I have doubts though cause you can plainly see the burnt marks but it would only be a 10$ waste if they dont
Let me know if they don't, I maybe able to help you a little bit.
Can't do that on the C2Q, it's a work machine and I'm not allowed to install my own upgrades. I am allowed to install whatever software I want though.
I've been too busy to play around with OC'ing on this motherboard. I played with the one second OC software once but it lowered the speed on my ram and made my machine feel slower. Once I have time after getting married next month I should be able to push to a decent OC. I do have an H50 so temps shouldn't be an issue.
I was just digin around my storage building for something my wife asked for and found a P4 system LOLZ I took it out of the case to find the VGA fan seized and the Caps next to the CPU bulged and some leaking. I thought "Whatever" and tried to boot it up and BAM! installing windows now on it.
Any particular reason? Another cruncher?
If you have at least a 45-watt soldering iron, I bet you could replace those caps. You know the capacitance and voltage rating you would need, right?
Nope just goofing off but I did test to see if it would play movies on my 1080P TV and it does nicely so I may just use when my wife wants to watch a movie or something.
Yes I could but its not worth the time.
I finally got around to setting up the 2700k in BOINCView:
Congrats to RadEd on the upcoming wedding
As far as your X6 overclock, my 1045T is @3.1Ghz pulling around 4k ppd with temps in the mid 40's on the cores and about 50C on the die using only a stock heatpipe cooler.
Is your chip the 95 or the 125w version?
I am working out some kinks on ocing my 1055t's. I have them at 3.2 stable as a rock at stock voltage, but I want moar.
Pm inbound Norton.
brandon had his at 3.5 or 3.6 iirc ... see if he remembers his settings
Also, another forum member had a thread going on OC'ing his 1055T (think it was el mayo)
I ran like 3.6ghz 1.45V (board I had was not cool with 6 core clocking) and it ran great
My 1045T does 266*13.5 (3600) @ 1.35v on an MSi K9A2 Platinum.
What temps do you get at that setting, what cooler?
Looks Like I am limited to somewhere between 230 and 240 on the fsb. 230 it's rock stable, 240 it won't load windows.
