sever 2008 is being a bitch, been at it for 2 hours! 6th time lucky
Where did you get a HD 7930 from? Haven't heard of this card...
It's actually a PowerColor HD7870 "MYST" "Tahiti LE"
But I think that name is stupid, so I call it a HD7930
Really? I have Server 2008 R2 on my 4x4 system and I didn't have any issues running WCG.
Ah - I remebmer seeing you posting about the HD 7870 Myst now.
YEAH! server is up and running, got about 200+ updates to do! but we are getting there. Cooling is botched at best so my temps are are 70+ during folding.... Will get some cardboard and some new fans to fix it next week
8 core crunching from now!
Is this a good socket 1366 board?
EVGA 141-GT-E770-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s ...
Spoiler: EVGA X58 Classified 3
If so, what's a good price for it?
I saw it on Ebay for $279. I guess anything less than that is a good price. FYI:Looking at old newegg reviews, I see lots of problems with the first PCIe slot.
EVGA B stock w/lifetime warranty for $159 sounds like a good deal then?
That price is terrific. If it works, it's an excellent board. I've purchase EVGA B-stock before. Make sure you have some kind of return option.
I tried running boinc on my home server 2011 and it didn't work at all with a 6950... it seems to only work without the gpu
Sold my last two Phenom II quads today, 8GB of DDR2 and the K9A2 Platinum. Considering trying Windows 7 on the SSD that erased itself but appears to still work for now, as I really want to put my darn 7950 to use instead of keeping my head in the sand and staying with Windows 8 and the crashing drivers (a recent update seemed to stop the crashing when I would open a web browser while WCG was running, but more than 1 WU at a time still crashes the driver). Might be close to buying another 3770K setup, but may wait a while and just stick with getting my 7950 going with 10 WUs first since I didn't exactly get the money I was looking for with the PII stuff, but at least that's some old, power hungry stuff gone now. May put up some 939 stuff next (haven't decided yet) but may hang onto them since the boards are rough and I can use them with Windows as GPU F@H rigs since the CPUs are pretty much worthless for WCG.
Got my 7950 up to 1175/1400 the other day at like 60c with the beastly cooler but have had zero time to do anything other than a half hour of Far Cry 3 testing with it. Only have 2 classes 4 days a week this semester but the campus is 1.5 hours away, the instructor is extremely strict and the classes are at 9:30 AM. Then I have to work until 8:30 or 9:30PM and scramble to actually get some decent sleep before having to rise at 6:45AM the next morning. My computer is still in shambles from the SSD wiping itself but it is what it is.
Sorry to hear about all of those trouble Justin
I got the HD7930 installed in my i7-860 today:
Currently I have it doing 8 WUs, which I think is a good starting point. I will, however, try ten in a few days
I'm likely selling one of my C2D HPs tomorrow, which might help it cool off a tad more in here, and would make some more space for the Xeon setup.
How are the temps on that card?
~60C or so
Good great [Ion], continue adding to that fleet . Awesome!
I gain some and I lose some. I added the HD7930, but I also sold a C2D and I don't have a system to put my GTX460 into. So it's just sitting on the shelf until I get the Xeons
My numbers will be down in a few days, just got my bill for internet and with work slowing down I think it is the only right thing. Will try too get my brother to take a rig or two. He pays alot less than me.
Should have seen this comming with the rigs doing a months worth of work in one day.I am now paying for a year worth of crunching every two weeks. Dam I hate this but I went from +5 GB a month to over 60GB.
Great work team with all the new members and the numbers they help bring.
What sort of internet plan is that???
I'm running of a sim card so it is just like you are on the phone. I'm out in the sticks so no cable and the land line is joke (hell I cut it two time's last year, they just put it in the ditch and hope for the best.)
Kinda figured it was something like that- sorry to hear that man
I ran through my own issues with the power bill so I know how tough it is to keep on crunching.
Fingers crossed that better/cheaper access gets out to you soon!
Since I started crunching 10/31/12, I haven't even looked at the electric bill lol. I'm just waiting for my wife to let me know that it's high. When that happens, I'll figure out a new plan. Until then, it's crunch time
But come to think of it, I wonder what it is nowadays.....
I have seen these going for around $115 to $140 used. I would guess that $159 from the B-Stock with lifetime warranty would be pretty decent. Hmmmmm, I am thinking a X980 going in that? Wow! that along with a HD7xx0 video card and 12gb ram would be a sweeeeet setup Norton!!!
Ouch!!!!! Is there a Hughesnet in Canada? Hughesnet offers some pretty awesome 15mb down and 3mb up satellite IPS. Pretty reasonable prices also.
I just don't know if they service Canada or not brother.
My electric bill is normally around $80/month with no rigs crunching. Right now it is around $180.00 (this was before the third HD 7970 was added).
Back in 2010 I had 5 i7 920 rigs crunching and my bill reached close to $300/month
That caused me to reduce my rigs pretty quickly. I will be curious what my bill will be this month...
Thankfully the misses doesn't see this bill or she would have another reason to complain about my "hobby" (they are too loud, they heat up the apartment, etc...)
Very good board!!
