    That is correct sir. When I get my watercooling setup I think I am going to put my good air cooler on it and see what clocks I can really get just for fun.

    I'd be interested in your results, I don't have time to fiddle with mine, so I'd love some quick and dirty numbers to throw into the BIOS and make it boot with a big OC.

    I don't know how far I will get. The little matx biostar board has 3 voltage options. Stock, more , and most and they really are called something like that. I can also adjust the bclk. I don't know if that is normal because I don't have much experience overclocking lga775... yet.

    Raise NB no more than 1.45v and make sure you take it slow, FSB is your friend here

    My X3 720BE/ASUS M3A78-CM/2x2GB DDR2/Enermax PSU are now on their way to Brandonwh64 in exchange for some much needed hard drives. May hang onto my other PII systems for the meantime but you're welcome to ask about any of the CPUs and stuff I have available.

    Anyone notice shipping rates (with UPS at least) have increased? Cost me $24 to mail a 10lb Newegg box today when I just mailed a friend essentially the same thing but 8lbs for $13 a few weeks ago. Dunno if they are picky about the dimensions of the box or what but I noticed those shiny new Cooler Master HAF XB cases on Newegg cost $22 to ship as well. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Cool! My old 720BE goes to another cruncher! :D :toast:

    Thanks for the info on shipping... good to know considering that we tend to ship stuff out often.

    Picked up another C2D today--an E4400. I'm likely selling the E2180 and X2 5400+ tomorrow, which means more GPUs :D

    So I got multiple WU's working on my gpu. I just sat there and watched for like 15 minutes in awe of how much work I was completing. I get 12 tasks done every 3.35 minutes and everything is staying about 50c.

    I can just watch the work being completed as one watches a fire. Is that normal?

    Anybody spotted any good deals around for a video card that I can crunch on? Not looking to spend much but I'll entertain any offer?

    Isn't it beautiful. When I see a WU finish every minute or less (between the two systems) I can just sit and it's visual evidence of how much is being done. Beautiful :toast:
    This HD7770 and this HD7850 are both solid cards at sub-$200 :toast:

    Aren't 460's pretty good too. I don't know how they compare to 7770's. They are about the same price used($80). Whats the best card you could get for around $50?

    GTX 460s are ineffcient crunchers. They are slow compared to the power draw and non-BOINC performance. Crunching --> Radeon

    Meh, 460's are not very productive for BOINC, as well as most nvidia cards(save the high end...580/670/680). Best bet is something in the HD 7770 range and up. Even the HD 6xxx series can only run a couple of WU's.

    $50 won't get you much--maybe a HD6670.

    But AMD cards are much, much better. A HD7770 doing 4 WUs can do 3x the output of a GTX460 ;)

    7770's are going for $80 used on ebay. Think next year they will be around $50-$60?

    May have to pull my cruncher down till the end of the month, have a situation where a client needs some ddr3 sticks to borrow. I don't have spares, and I don't want to pull ram out of my main system. It'll go back up at that time. Hoping to crack 500k before that though....
    Edit: and I'll probably throw my main rig some work overnight to conpensate....

    Indeed. I'd be willing to buy a pair of HD7770s or HD7850s easily :)
    Possible, but HD5770s are still commanding that price (and more sometimes) a good while after they were released.
