    Well, I talked with the "Community Adviser" here today and learned that they actually cut power to the dorms over break :shadedshu

    So I'll be bringing home my i7 laptop and the i7-920/HD7770, but I'll have to shut everything else down until Sunday :ohwell:

    Congrats on the addition to the family! That really is always a happy time with new ones entering the family, just like a new rig :)

    Good thing you found out. It would have sucked to come back thinking all your rigs were crunching to find out they were killed. So I'm guessing its mandatory to leave during that break, since they power everything down huh?

    Indeed. We have to be gone from Wednesday at 10:00 AM until Friday at 5:00 PM. I'm probably going to be home until Sunday at ~5:00 PM though, so things will likely be off for two more days. But maybe I'll leave things set to turn on again Friday night :)

    Thanks man. I went and bought a Vertex 4 SSD today. Just waiting on something to finish downloading in the next day or so before I install the new SSD with a fresh copy of Windows. I hope that is the issue, it's the only piece of hardware I've used from one rig to the other with same issues.

    For those who were not around when I had this issue before, the PC just locks up, don't matter if under load or not, just happens more under load. It'll lock up then BSOD, then when I restart it wouldn't find my SSD. I'd have to clear CMOS, then apply settings again. Only happens when running the SSD in my rig right now.

    No worries, we'll pick up your slack :p

    Hey, I'm not slacking--I added four new rigs within the last three days. How many did you add? ;)

    Thanks though--I should still maintain close to 40k PPD :)

    There's pics all around you, just gotta look better :roll:

    Well on a serious note I did receive my CPU and cooler for my 3rd rig, just need to install the new SSD on my main rig and then start to work on my new cruncher. Should be up by the end of this week.

    Guys I added an a6 apu today.
    I also found out the e2 and a6 apu CAN crunch on the onboard gpu. The e2 takes around an hour pertask and the a6 takes around 30mins pertask.
    Both are faster then the cpu only.

    Just a small tidbit of info for anyone thinking of trying the newest apu to crunch on.
    I honestly would say it would be about equal to the first fx8 cores but not the refreshed ones.

    I intermittently run WCG on a friend's first-gen APU--an A6-3650 I believe. The GPU WUs took about 13-15 minutes (6.56) so I'd imagine just under half an hour each on the new WUs. If it crunched 24/7, it would be good for some very fine PPD :)

    Parts are out for delivery today, except for the RAM. Instead of paying $6 to ship the RAM, I opted to use Eggsaver. At least I have a lot of RAM but would be nice to have it NAO. :roll:

    I hate those damn spammers. Nowadays they copy a sentence of yours from the thread and re-post it, and you end up going through a thread any you're like "Dafuq? I posted that exact sentence already." It's funny when they post embedded images in their posts that don't work because they are new accounts too.

    Well, I've left for break. I have the i7-920 & HD7770 in my backpack, so I'll get that going by 7PM or so. Everything at the dorm is still on and I'll remotely turn it off tomorrow morning.

    Keep on crunching :toast:
