    I didn't even think of pushing it that far til I talked to the man quoted below...;)

    What have you settled for as to an OC? I finally settled at 1000 core, which had to come down from what it was. I think it went 1075 (crash), 1050 (stable for a while then crash), 1025 (stable again for a good while and then crash), and now 1000 (seems perfectly stable as i've never had a driver crash even with all the WUs). I think t_ski is untouchable for me, just too much power cranking out of that rig (which is great!) :roll:

    As to the cloning, i've never done it hehe :eek:

    I'm trying (been trying) but I don't think it'll work :( :cry:
    :cool: <-- that's t_ski
    :fear: <-- that's me ;)
    t_ski and KieX say thanks.

    So my i7 rig seems dead as can be, So i will be buying a low/mid range motherboard (that i can test the i7 on) along with a pentium or celly to test the Asus board with.

    Not sure what else to do to figure out the problem and if i happen to get them both to work then atleast its another 2 threads and more slot(s) for video cards for crunching/ folding on :)


    Also does anyone have a 1155 board and CPU combo for around $120 shipped or less? If so PM me within the next 12 hours please.

    IIRC theonedub has an ASRock H61 board and a Celeron Dual Core--he may have sold it, but I'm not sure.

    I was looking at that a few days ago, only problem with that is the motherbooard doesn't like to post sometimes from being off. I don't want a faulty motherboard to do testing on to find what is faulty. :laugh:

    almost worth it just for the CPU though.

    NewEgg had an ECS mobo for $45 shipped minus a $15 rebate. I don't know if it's still available.

    It is--$30 shipped for a H61 board is a pretty good deal, even though it's ECS :)

    Got my new HD 7770 and keyboard in today, so I'm going to install the 7770 in my desktop when I get home tonight. Loving this Gigabyte keyboard already, it's a monster!

    +35k PPD running 3 WU's during normal use. Nice addition there :toast:

    Edit: Are you going to put in the same rig as your 79xx? I assume that they both have to run the same app_info file unless you make two different BOINC clients with different settings. I saw a posting here about that a week ago about that possibility.

    Everything is still going well running 3 WUs on the HD7770 and 5 on the CPU:

    I can't wait until I get my two more cards in--although then I'll have to figure out how to give each GPU WU 8/9 of a CPU thread each :ohwell:

    Yeah, that's what I'll do. But I don't need to do that until I have 9 WUs worth of cards :)

    I'm still very happy with how this is going--preliminary results indicate that I could even be getting nearly 2x the PPD I was :)

    Had to shut down the rig to install 2 OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD's to replace the Raptor HHD. Still not running Boinc. Re-installing games on the SSDs...
    Will be up soon though!

    I can report nothing but success with the 3 WU trick--my HD7770 system had already done nearly 19k points by the AM update today, and my RAC has jumped by 1,000 points :D

    Thank you KieX! :D

    That means your app_info file is setup for HCC CPU work, but your Program Data folder doesn't have the needed files to run it. The problem is that to download them you need to take a few steps:

    1) Finish or abort all your current WU's
    2) Delete app_info
    3) Restart BOINC and immediately set to "No new tasks"
    4) Close BOINC, making sure there's no WU in the tasks list
    5) Put app_info file again, restart BOINC

    Did some testing today on multi GPU.

    The rig is a i7 920 running 3.8 GHz. There were no background jobs during testing. There were no CPU WU during testing.

    On a 7770 running 1110 MHz
    3 GPU setup. Each took an average of 6:55 => 2:18 between each completed GPU WU
    4 GPU setup. Each took an average of 8:31 => 2:07 between each completed GPU WU

    On a 7950 running 900 MHz
    4 GPU setup. Each took an average of 4:34 => 1:08 between each completed GPU WU
    6 GPU setup. Each took an average of 6:25 => 1:04 between each completed GPU WU

    So a slight advantage going up in GPU units but at the expense of higher temperature.
    manofthem, Daimus, KieX and 1 other person say thanks.
