    Sadly when I installed it between the two 580's I could not get the computer to post:(
    Have to head off to work so I pulled it out and everything is running fine. And yes I did plug in the 6-pin...
    Oh well. I will mess around with it when I get off work tonight.

    Less then ½ hour work left on my 7950...=> minus 80K PPD. My 2x7700 will run 8 hours before it dries out. Back to raw CPU power :eek:

    Edit: 39 pages of PV for my 7950. Dried out.

    Anyone know why my computer wouldn't post when I installed the 7770 between the 580's?

    No idea :(

    A bit late--but I have the i7-920/HD7770 up and crunching again :toast:

    EDIT: Only, there are no more GPU WUs to be had--so it's the i7-920 only :ohwell:

    Very quality idea. I'll get in some gaming this evening, right after dinner, if I can even find where to start. I had recently started Witcher 2, I just bought I Am Alive, and I miss BF3. So many choices.

    My home computer went offline today and I have no idea what happened to it yet (power outage maybe, forgot to set power on after AC loss), but I'm swapping the mobo and CPU tonight. PPD will be lower and the office is a mess because I'm rebuilding the FX-8150 for my mom (2 video cards out with it) and my X3210 is offline because PartedMagic is cloning my laptop drive to the Scorpio Black 750GB I got. Hopefully the RAM will arrive tomorrow and I can get everything running tomorrow or Thursday.

    I hope the GPU WUs come avaliable soon, I don't want to have a gtx460 and a gtx465(on its way) (and if i have the $$ left tomrrow) a 2nd gtx460 all idle. I suppose i could game on them or put F@H on them so they keep doing some good.

    No wonder my GPU wasn't doing anything when I got home. Dammit.

    But on the plus side, I got to play a round BF3 tonight, came in 2nd with more kills than deaths :D (team lost though, shhh)
    I'll be leaving my pc running with CPU work only til the gpu WUs come back. This is where multiple rigs would really come in handy :eek: The night could be worse :toast:

    I'm actually going to try a little Black Ops 2 now. :D

    But yeah I'll leave it open to receive GPU WU's. So if the game gets laggy, I'll know what's going on. :toast:

    It was my poor attempt at a joke... BELIEVE ME - I know what is dafuq :pimp:

    That explains why my gut is so big. Either that, or it's from all that pie ;)

    I've just checked on the rigs at school--the i7-2700K will run out of GPU WUs within half an hour, while I expect that the i7-860 will keep going at least until morning.

    My final GPU WU has finished about an hour ago. But the good news is i have many pages of pending results so my points should stay decent for a couple of days.

    3770K and ASRock Z77 Extreme6 are installed. My computer feels snappier now for some reason compared to my 2600K and Z68 Extreme4, even though I only turned the multi up to 38 and DDR3 to 2000. It's idling at ~30c with my push pull Hyper212 EVO but once I get the BIOS upgraded and stuff I'll let BOINC run again and see how it fares with a mild OC for a day until I get time to put a nice OC on it. Makes me wonder if something was wrong with my previous setup as I complained about getting like 20% less GFLOPS in IBT with HT enabled on my 2600K, or it could be placebo effect. Won't know until I bench! :)

    EDIT: Went for 4500 @ 1.25v for tonight. I know the voltage is probably high but temps aren't *too* terrible and the thing still uses 20w less than my 2600K (3770K takes 65w while crunching says HWMonitor, 2600K at same speed and 1.32v was in the 80s).

    Thanks for sharing. I hope they kick back in soon, start getting some points again :)

    I thought this was a good post from that first link:
