    Mon dieu! :toast:

    I have some new hardware for the Team--I picked up these in replacement for the AMD X2 I sold yesterday. I got a C2D system (E7400, 2GB RAM, "500w" Apevia PSU, Intel board) and the guts out of a Lenovo AMD X2 setup (Some X2, 2GB RAM, Lenovo AM2 motherboard, X1300) and a pair of 250GB HDDs--all for $20. I'm going to install Windows 7 on the C2D as soon as my ISO downloads (I cracked my DVD, so I have to download from Dropbox and create a USB drive of it). Will get both systems up and going tonight :toast:
    Pictures will be provided as soon as I can find my camera card--it's an old one and will only use a 512mb card :banghead:

    I've took French from 7th grade to 11th grade, although my proficiency has greatly waned since then :(

    I think if I spent a semester immersed in it, I'd be fully fluent :toast:

    Congrats! :toast:


    The C2D is up and crunching now on the BOINC folder from the old X2--I'd figure it should be good for just over 1k PPD. We'll see :toast:

    I'm installing Windows 7 on the AMD X2 right now, and will get it crunching within an hour :toast:

    Terrible cellphone pictures, but you get the idea:

    System in a case is a 2.8GHz C2D, the one on the cardboard box is a 2.7GHz X2 5200+

    Both are crunching now, they were on-and-off as parts were added and things were configured this evening :toast:

    Yes. Aside from the orange Thermaltake fan, everything that is caseless there is the guts of a Lenovo Thinkcentre--the original case was damaged beyond repair, so that's why I was able to score these parts so cheap :toast:

    Both systems have now completed a successful twelve hours of crunching :toast:

    After dinner I'm going to gut my i7-860 system and transfer the AMD X2 into the case (so I can list it on Craigslist), so it will probably be down for an hour or so. Points hit shouldn't be too bad at least.

    Well, trying to move my i7-860 system seems to have killed it. Now it just turns on, runs for a second, and turns off. Happens regardless of whether there is RAM in it or not, what GPU I'm using, what PSU I'm using, or whether it's in a case or not. Damn it. This is really not what I needed now :mad: :banghead:

    It's shorting out, check the system again and make sure it's got a good ground.

    Anyone crunching with their 7970? How's it do with the beta WUs?

    You think that's it? What do you suggest I do? Since it did this even on the cardboard box :confused:

    Check everything. CPU power plug, 24-pin, etc.

    Check the motherboard physically. Last time I saw that issue it was a bad motherboard stand off.

    Do GPU WUs crunch on the APU and if they do how well?

    I've checked the connections. The weird thing is, it runs for a few seconds, turns itself off, then back on again, and repeats :confused:

    Out of BETA, these are now regular Help Conquer Cancer WU's. As for 7970, I believe BarbaricSoul is using one (with 2600K), and it's getting him pie:

    http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=host&proj=bwcg&hostid=2198294

    You'll be right up there :toast:

    That's what I call stupid mode, used to happen loads to me on the pre-SB Asus boards. As Rad_Ed said, probably short or even a build up of charge. I would let the board discharge for a little while completely turned off and just connected to PSU.

    Like I said, sounds like a short.

    Try adding motherboard stand offs to put the board off of the cardboard box.

    Also disconnect HDD, DVD, etc.

    Most recently I just had it in the original case. No HDD or ODD connected..just the board, CPU, RAM, PSU, and one GPU.

    Familiar symptoms. Maybe the CMOS battery? Try to replace if you have a working board.
