Selling it off to buy something new, or just dropping down a rig?
Not dropping a rig
This to make up for the FX8350, or preparing for Steamroller, or what?
I'm quite excited for Steamroller--if AMD can put out a 3.5GHz+ SR octacore for sub-$250 I'm all over it!
Will either rebuild the rig with some other pieces I have (FX-8150) or go another direction that I'm seriously considering but haven't made up my mind on yet.
In any case, the FX-6200 setup has been very reliable and would make a great cruncher/gamer/HTPC setup for someone
I wish I had an excuse. Did you have a price in mind?
Also, I got a new computer at work. I think it has a virus. The processor always runs at 100%.
Not sure how much I'll get out of a 1.4GHz dual core bobcat (E1-1200) though.
I would not do anything on that bobcat core cpu. My friend has one of those type of cpus and his desktop just drags. Its perfect for his needs, basic email and basic stuff.
He cannot discuss the price here. Please discuss using PM.
I run an Atom. Anything helps
In other news, we have an update from the Go Fight Against Malaria team:
As we finish the first phase of the GO Fight Against Malaria project (“GO FAM”), we are very grateful for all of the computer power you donated to us, for all of the interest you have displayed, and for all of the support you have given us. Plasmodium falciparum (the species of parasite that causes the deadliest form of malaria) kills more people than any other parasite on the planet. Almost half of the entire human population is at risk of being infected with malaria. Although there are several currently-administered drugs that work well against many strains of malaria, treating patients with those drugs eventually spurs the evolution of new multi-drug-resistant mutant “superbugs” against which the drugs stop working well. It's just the nature of nature: the presence of the different anti-malaria drugs within the human hosts causes the selection of new mutant strains of malaria that can escape the effects of the drugs. Consequently, scientists like us need to keep searching for new types of drugs that will work against these mutant superbugs that constantly evolve and spread. In the Olson lab, we are also trying to advance the discovery and design of new types of drugs that can be used in new combination therapies that should make it more difficult for the parasite to evolve new types of drug-resistant mutants.
I suggest that you all check out the link if you have time!
Watta fakku? SN2S moved to intermittent status, too? At this rate we'll be out of work by the end of summer due to every project going intermittent!
Hello all. Been a while, hope you're all good.
Been back from my extended vacation for a little while now but been pretty busy searching for a job. Turned in a few results on the SR-2 today, but otherwise looks like I'm forced to shut down the farm and sell it all off.
Not sure when I'll be able to contribute again but I know once the situation improves I'll be back again. I'll post in the Crunchers helping Crunchers thread at some point with any parts from my farm that can stay within the team.
Keep on crunching team
Good to see you stopping by!
Sorry about the job hunt thing and hopefully you find something worthwhile soon (cash in some of that good Karma)
P.S> Stick around awhile, you don't have to crunch continuously to hang out here.... Drop me a PM if I can help with anything
I, uh, of course I knew that. Just, um.. asking if he had one.
(Brain wasn't thinking, apparently. Sorry.)
(Edit: The same day, I typed a question mark, looked at it, erased it, then tried to type a lowercase question mark. I stared at the forward slash for a few seconds, completely confused. I think it was just an off day.)
If anyone is interested I have two C3D E8400's and two Intel mATX mobo's available. Can include some ram if needed. Also available is my dual Xeon S771 setup.
Keep your head up! I don't know you, or any of you, really. But what I do know, the folks here are awesome people with a real decency that is hard to find on the web.
I just went through an unemployment, homeless ordeal. Still crawling out of the hole, but the reason I am where I am now is because I would not let myself get depressed and pitiful.
I sincerely hope you have the skills, contacts and education to keep you out too much trouble! I would not wish 'camping' on anybody. Especially you, a fellow TPU-er!!
Good Luck buddy!!
My WCG output is tanking heavily, in my strive to get work for my GPU. :S
That I suddenly ended up borrowing a GTX 285 wasn't quite expected, either.
Didn't even expect to be able to get the integrated and the GTX 285 to work at the same time. While using the GTX as main card no less. :O
Absolutely, love this community. Hopefully still have some time to log on every now and then and catch up on the stones and pie thread.
Thanks buddy. I'm sorry to hear that. You are absolutely right about keeping head high to get though the tough times and it's something I hope not to forget either. Luckily in the UK we have slighlty more support, so I have to lose all my luxuries but should be alright. All the best to you
Good luck. I'm sorry that it's come to this, but I know you can persevere and push through it.
I've added another i3 2100 to my fleet
Okay, so my internet connection was half-broken for a couple of hours and I had the very same issue as I had before. It appears the WUs that were started while the connection was half-broken suffer from this while the ones that were started before happily run without a proper internet access. I looked through BOINC's bug tracker and it appears a bug was reported many years ago which looks almost, but not quite, entirely like the problem I have. It is still marked as unfixed.
Judging from the data gathered in the bug report, it definitely is a bug in the BOINC client, and not in the WUs.
Since BOINC is LGPL'd, if I get too pissed at this problem I am going to fix it myself, grrrrrr!
Finally got one of my cruncher builds just about done. Another on the way very very soon.
I put my FX-6200 setup in a FS thread- TPU crunchers/folders will get a discount if interested
Well guys, I believe I have to throw in the towel for this cruncher. Since I brought it to work and have been using it to do my daily activities while it crunches, it has decided to BSOD atleast 4 times with stop code F4. I think that it is time to hold off until the GPU WU return if they ever do.
Snazzy! Are you planning to OC that FX at all? Is this a gaming build as well, or why are there the two HD7850s?
I added another i3 2100 last night--not a ton, but it helps
Well looked back in the event viewer and its not F4 but 41... Here is what I am gettings
I am going to let it break in a little and let the thermal paste seat first. Then I will see how well it overclocks. It is also my gaming rig as to why there's 2x 7850's. I used them for the gpu wu's units but had this build in mind when I got them. So I knew that when the gpu unit where over they will still have a purpose.
That rig will make a nice cruncher/folder
The 7850's should do at least 30-40k ppd each on the new F@H core17 jobs (excellent Radeon 7 series support this time)
EDIT- @brandon- what are the specs on the cruncher that's dying off???
