    That depends on luck, though. On the same clocks my 'dozer ran on lower voltage, was much cooler and drew much less power than my current 'driver. Heck, even the stock voltage on the 'driver is much higher.

    On the plus side, I've been playing the original Bioshock without having to suspend crunching, which is awesome (not only because my ppd should stay even but because Bioshock is a really intriguing game) :D

    On the down side, seems like nasty thunderstorms are rolling in for the night; I'm hoping I don't lose power. We shall see in the morning because I'm off to bed

    Good to know. I just installed the first bioshock. I also am playing the first dues ex, and never thought to leave boinc on.

    I overclocked the phenom II to 3792mhz and the 7930's to 1050mhz. Brought down the wu times by two minutes.

    Give it a go with BOINC running. I have and have kept 60fps for like 97% of the time, so I'm not complaining in the slightest :)

    Good call in overclocking the 7930s to be sure. I ought to try that on mine too, maybe this weekend when I get some free time.

    How are your temps on your cards when overclocked compared to stock? Any voltage bump necessary?

    I did not need a voltage bump. According to wizz's review you can get up to around the same as a 7950/7970 can on stock. So around 1150 or so.

    Going from 975 to 1050 only made temps go up by about 2c at most. My top card is hitting 79c max while my bottom card is hitting 70c max. I am thinking I am going to put some better tim in there. The fan curves on these things is so low. The highest speed I have seen is 46%, but they get loud after 50% so I think I am fine with that.

    Last night of crunching for the 7970. I have to send in the motherboard for rma. Some ram slots died. Been running single channel memory for a bit not quite wanting to lose the system for a week.

    Am I the only one having problems with the free-dc.org site right now?
    When I try to access the team's page, it keeps giving me a page with ALL values either blank or zero.

    RAC = Recent Average Credit

    Basically, it's a floating average of your credit/day--sometimes averaged over 28 days, sometimes over 7 days, etc. It's computed in different ways at BOINCStats, Free-DC, and from WCG, but is basically a measure of what you're doing each day.

    So, I undervoltaged my CPU a bit, thus it runs cooler now.
    Now I can run BOINK while on higher clocks. Had tune down the clocks a bit before, as the sucka was getting a bit too hot.
    Hope that will yield me / us a bit more points over time.

    Also, is it normal that the GPU WU does nothing half the time? My GPU WU alternates between running normally for a few minutes and then having no GPU activity for about a minute. Like this, it takes ~ 10 minutes for each one to complete. And it spends around four minutes without any GPU activity through the time it finishes.
    So yeah, is that normal, or do I have a problem here?

    That activity is 100% normal- the wu needs some time with the cpu before it finishes (after the gpu). There are actually two images, which is why there is a pause in the middle ;)
