    hey guys I've been having all kinds of issues.. I'm trying to work through them now, but I may not get everything back crunching until next week.. I've been out of town on business all last week and just catching up right now. It looks like I'm having problems with my multi WU on GPU pc's.. I'm running out the door now, but I'll work on it more tomorrow.. I'm going to try and save as many puppies as I can.. lol :toast:

    At least you're not that odd man out, as a great many of us have had issues with the multi WU's. I hope you get it figured out ASAP!!! :toast:

    A local charity that has far more equipment than money. I scored all four Celerons (although without HDDs and with only 1GB of RAM each) and the Atom for $85.

    Alright, so the good news: Celeron #1 is now crunching
    [​IMG]
    ....and #2 isn't far behind.

    The bad news: one of my HDDs is dead, which certainly complicates matters. Also, the Atom system is being a pain. I'm going to try Ubuntu on one of the Celerons later tonight.

    EDIT: Celeron #2 is GO!
    [​IMG]

    EDIT: Celeron #3 is go--except it's actually a C2D (?)

    Guys i want your opinions on this.

    Should i get a case this week or get the stuff to build another cruncher and run them both caseless for a couple of weeks?

    great thing is I don't often have a little kid around, I'm engaged but not married yet(she doesn't mind my rig not being cased) I don't have any pet besides a rabbit,and he can't reach where i have it setup.

    So having no case isn't a problem for me, I just can't decide to get a case or to get started on another cruncher(or i could get a case and part of another rig)

    If you want to crunch and you can live without a case, then a new rig is probably the better option.

    Great job ION :toast:

    Like most have said, depends if there is anything that will require you to need a case. If no pets or anything that can get on it, go caseless and build another rig. :)

    Thanks! :toast:

    Between the four, it should be good for close to 5k PPD. I'll have to shut them all down Tuesday PM or Wednesday AM--but they'll be back up Sunday PM. I just need to score some more HDDs.

    They make very solid crunchers--they're small, they stack well, and are dead silent. I will need another power strip though if I'm going to add any more--I've now completely run out of AC plugs on my side of the room :p

    Wonder why :p

    Makes me wish I could crunch with the PC's at work. We have 42 C2D E8400's ready to go. :(

    Well, I have ten computers and three network devices (router + two switches) plugged in. I indeed wonder why :p

    It is a shame. Those E8400s would be good for probably 60k PPD. It's the same way I feel about the i7 labs here--several hundred K PPD of i7s just going idle. Although, trying to manage hundreds of different systems would be a hand-full :p

    So I've talked with one of the RAs on the hall and it looks like I may be allowed to leave my computers on over break. I'm going to have to check with one of the supervisors, but that could be great :)

    You didn't tell them 10 systems did you? When you said computers they may be thinking 2 if you didn't specify. Translation- don't surprise the RAs ;)

    I told the RA "a bunch" and he said that he "thought" that it would be OK. But even if I just leave on the three i7s, that's still the vast majority of my PPD (and turning off the 7 DCs wouldn't be a crisis)

    Four SFF HP desktops, three custom-built i7 desktops, my parents' old custom-built C2D, my new Thinkpad, and two old C2D laptops. It heats up right quick in here :p

    Ion's dorm room is probably getting close to what my dad's business office looks like. I have one desk surrounded by 8 towers and another room with a tower, a caseless system and 2 laptops. :roll:

    Well, it's a bad picture, but you can kinda see things:
    [​IMG]
    The four HPs on the floor in the foreground, my i7 laptop, the 2700k and E7400 on the table behind the LCD, the 860/GTX460s to the left on the windowsill, and the fans for the i920/HD7770 just to the right. Not seen are the two C2D laptops--they're stuffed away inside the desk on the right.
