    On "Normal" days, my 2700k seems to have settled down at just over 6k PPD:

    Not bad I'd say considering it's used occasionally and runs FAH-GPU and a web server 24/7 :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have it set to as close as it can get to 2000 mhz. Right now it is at 2070 with the fsb at 230, mem is at 1532 and nb is at 2300. Proc is at 3.2 ghz.

    X58 SLI has been RMA'd, hopefully I'll get back a working board this time :p

    That's what is holding back your FSB o/c. Drop it to ~1800 or less(I do 1600+ for extreme o/c's) and don't forget to drop the mem divider as well.

    I'm negotiating over at XS, but I may be picking up a DP Sossaman setup for WCG :toast:
    Not the greatest (basically a pare of Core Duo CPUs), but it would be very cheap and they draw ~80w from the wall :toast:
    Norton and BUCK NASTY say thanks.

    I've had a couple DP systems in the past and they're fun to play with :toast:

    Did anyone get multiple pages of work with no time to complete??? :confused:

    I just went through the weekend on the FX-8150 rig with nearly everything due today... the incomplete wu's have been aborting themselves all afternoon. Strange thing is that this is the only rig doing such things and everything else is running a respectable schedule?

    I aborted the last 8 due today and I got a new pile that are due tomorrow? Not as many this time though....:twitch:

    I just went through and checked and I've had no such thing. I have had more WUs than normal that say "Running, high priority" in BOINC and even bump off other WUs so they can run first, but none with deadlines that short (and they're all completing on time).

    Weird :wtf:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Right now I have them a default voltages as the previous owner said he got it to 3.5 at stock volts. Right now it is at 3.2 stable as a rock.



    Edit :


    Tried it with no success. I dropped the ht and nb down to 1750, mem down to 1000 mhz and proc was at 3000 mhz. Fsb at 250 still got the bsod upon start of windows. I think I am at the fsb limit of the board with this proc. Oh well It's stable at 3.2 so I will leave it there. A 400 mhz oc isn't to shabby anyway. LOL

    Well, it looks like the Sossaman setup won't be happening, apparently it only does ~1k PPD so it wouldn't really be worth my time. Oh well, at least then I can use the PSU & HDD on something faster later on.

    Dual 771 setups are definitely not amazing from what I heard. Was tempted to get the dual quad one on Geeks for $180 but apparently without all RAM channels populated it runs even worse than a single quad core LGA 775 processor.

    It's actually PPGA478. It's basically a Core Duo laptop CPU except it supports SMP (so there are two of them). But it's basically four refined Pentium M cores at 2GHz. The PPD is about right what I get from my 2.8GHz C2D laptop.

    In other words, I can scrounge up a LGA775 board, throw one of my E8300s in it, and get higher PPD with a setup that can actually be put in a case. Or go all-out and get a FX-8 for ~4.5-5x the PPD.

    I ran two 771 quad cores on WCG back when I first started this job and I was getting around 4K a day but these were TWO machines and they were low clocked quads (2.4Ghz I believe)

    BOINC decided to be a POS and break on one of my Ubuntu machines, and uninstalling it via Software center removed none of the files. In fact, I can't even delete or rename the files even though I chowned all of them. Linux is nice and all but its these ridiculous obscure problems that I absolutely hate. I swear the same exact Linux distro runs differently on every machine I install it on.

    sudo apt-get purge boinc

    Purge should remove all things left by the program. That said, it might still not have worked.

    Have you tried Win8 yet? Build 8400 is free to try until 1/2013. I've been crunching on it for at least a month now and it's doing ok ;)

    Ugh, no dice. Guess I'm reinstalling Ubuntu and 500+ updates because a program quit working and there's no way in hell I'm finding every crevice where it installed and typing sudo rm -rf boinc* because it won't uninstall and you can't do anything through the GUI because the files are still owned by root somehow and all have a lock icon on them.

    When you say it quit working, what did it do? Did you get the reconnecting to host and it never reconnects?

    The "work done for the project" was from like last week and it said "Downloading work from server" when I restarted it several times and I don't think it ever worked to begin with.

    Your troubles are certainly making me reconsider Linux for the i7-920. Yeah, it might be a bit faster, but Windows just works and I know how to fix it when something goes wrong :ohwell:

    Linux has generally worked very well for me.

    Edit: Well, Ubuntu to specific, and Gentoo sometime long ago.
