    this is the reason why i bought the 8 core,its for the extra crunching power once the GPU WUs are gone.

    Certainly, I love my i7s for that, and come next fall I'll presumably once again build up a fleet of eight or ten C2Ds for crunching :toast:

    ifI could get an i7 for 200$, I guess I would upgrade, cause I don't see why I should upgrade to a 300$ CPU, since my 2500k @ 4.7ghz is doing good xD

    in the other case, I'll just add a couple of rig to Crunch xD

    I am shutting down some old machines and putting them in storage this week. I already took down my ASRock 775Xfire-VSTA/P4 3.0GHz and ASUS A8N32-SLI, and plan on taking down the ECS nForce4-A939 as well as the Dell Dimension 8300 (P4 3GHz s478). The first two systems were running a pair of GTS 450s and GTX 460s for Folding@Home, but I am relocating the 460s to my dad's office X6 1045T machine, and the GTS 460s will be split up and one will be added to the 7970 cruncher and the 7950 cruncher. Construction is underway at our new facility, and I figured I would start cutting the bottom producers/power wasters out of my farm and keeping them around as spares. I know that every point counts, but when you have a group of rigs that collectively take about 350-500w yet produce ~3K PPD total, it just makes no sense keeping them online.

    More efficient rigs means less greenhouse gases from the power plant supplying the power....would be different if they were running on solar power but in this case the power savings is in balance with a minor loss of output :cool:

    Absolutely. I've been pushing for rig efficiency ever since I sold 2 Phenom II systems and purchased a pair of 3770K rigs. Unfortunately, I am still stuck with an abundance of original 80Plus and 80Plus Bronze power supplies, but maybe I can change that sometime soon when Golds and Platinums come down in price. I figured that condensing the systems would help reduce losses by removing redundant items such as extra hard drives, power supplies, fans, old CPUs and motherboards, etc. and would also push most of my PSUs into their more efficient 50%-75% usage ranges. Plus, it's nice having that many less systems requiring periodic maintenance such as updates and whatever, and I won't have to scroll down my Teamviewer list anymore. :)

    I have a use for a decent S775 mobo if you decide to part & sell them. ;)

    I may be willing to part with an Asus P5B Deluxe :toast:
    If not, I can probably get a G3x board on Wednesday--I dunno if that's interesting?

    If either will support a Q9300 and I can get it for an awesome [Ion] price, yes :D

    The G3x board certainly should--I'm less sure about the P5B Deluxe, as it's a 965-based board. I'll let you know what I can find :toast:

    I have the i7-860 going again--I robbed the PSU out of the AMD X2

    My last "good" 775 board died a few days ago (the ASUS P5W DH Deluxe 975X board that the Q9300 you have came with). My ASRock 775Xfire-VSTA is a 925X board that only supports single core Prescotts or Cedar Mill processors, my Dell Dimension E520 runs my X3210 at stock, and my ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 runs a C2E X6800 @ 3.2GHz. The Dimension 8300 is a socket 478/875P affair with a P4 3GHz HT, and I have a pair of 939 dual core chips (4400+ and de-lidded Opteron 170) with a broken ASUS A8N32-SLI and an ECS nForce4-A939.

    Thanks :toast:

    The Asus site says that the Q9300 is supported with a BETA BIOS, but since this is crunching it needs to be very stable.

    I'd rather not sell this board anyways--it's running two of my FAH GPUs.

    T hI used to be into folding and crunching a lot a couple of years ago, then things got hard so i sold the hardware and stopped for awhile, now that things are stable again I'm.building my farm up again, slowly.

    Thanks to ion for helping me setup the multi-gpu setup.,via teamviewer.
    It wad just a simple mistake that i was making but i would have spent a lot longer figuring it out if it wasnt for.him.
    Ion i took your advice and set 2 task to each gpu but.i gave them.727% CPU. Seems.to.be completing task at a decent time (8min each on 5770 and a bit over 5min each.on 7770) all gpus are overclocked if anyone is wondering.
    Will give clocks if anyone ask for them. On smartphone now or woulda just posted them. :)

    I'm always glad to help a fellow cruncher out :toast:

    It's great to see you adding more hardware again.

    Took some Kill-A-Watt readings recently of a few machines, and I figured I would share them with you guys that are interested in your farm's power consumption.

    System 1: i7-870 @ 3.7GHz/1.35v crunching 90%, 2x GTX 460 800/2000/0.975v +GTX 465 default/0.975v all Folding@Home, LEPA G900 80Plus Gold - 650w average
    System 2: Phenom II X6 1045T @ 3.25GHz/1.35v, 2x GTX 460 800/2000 1.0v, Corsair TX750 80Plus original - 575w average
    System 3: i7-2600K 4.2GHz/~1.3v, Gigabyte 7950 1175/1500/~1.2v crunching load only, Palit GTS 450 Folding@Home, Rosewill RG530 80Plus original - 360-420w depending on WU progress
    System 4: Dell Dimension E520, stock Xeon X3210, integrated 965G, Dell 305w ~70% efficiency? - 130w average

    With all my machines currently running (at work and home) after shutting down the old ones, I loosely estimate that I am consuming between 3000-4000 watts of electricity 24/7. Now that's a lot of energy.

    I get similar power readings from my killawat for your system 3. I use 420w.

    I find this an eye opener. So really 500w is enogh for 95% of people then, heck, this info suggests most people would get by with a 350w PSU :eek: I think I'll get one of those kill-thingmajig, pretty interesting results. :toast:
