    i7 2700k in my system. testing on overclocking how much it can handle. Right now, 1.216v 4ghz, for testing, max core: 60C, with my CNPX10x extreme modded. I think I'll need a new cooler i I want to read something good at 1.3v

    it will crunch soon :)

    Indeed, I suspect that the PhII X6s have a ferocious power draw. Fewer FX8s, particularly running Linux x64, really would be the way to go.

    I think I have my 2700k at 4.5GHz on 1.33v or something--my 2600k is doing 4.4 at 1.315v I think. On a H100.

    well, maybe I have a nice 2700k, has for now, 1.232v (as it's moving from 1.216 to 1.232), 4.3ghz, right now for 30 mins of prime95. I'll see more during the week.

    Either that or that I'm just lazy. The 2600k BSODs with any lower voltage within seconds or minutes of launching Linpack, but once I got the 2700k stable I decided that temps were OK so I wasn't going to mess with it.

    I recall there was a guide on making BOINC to run as a system service on windoze. But I can't seem to find it. Could anyone point me to it. puh-leeeeeaaaase? :)

    When you install BOINC, select "Protected Application Execution"

    That's it!

    I guess, you are okay.

    My 2700k @ 4.5ghz, right now to have some stability, i need 1.252/1.272v. I will test it further but highest temp core went to 68C. if I need more voltage, I guess I will need a better cooling.

    looooool really!?

    Also, I remember reading that in this mode, it is inaccessible with the manager. Is that true?

    68C is no issue IMO. My 2600k is running in the low 60s--even upper 70s is fine IMO. I make sure that temps stay under 80C (except IVB, which I'm OK doing 90C).

    No. If you run the boinc manager you can set your computing preferences etc.

    My $99 Fractal Design XL R2 arrived today, and it is huge and heavy, but it's the most premium case I have ever purchased. Getting it in my desk is probably going to be extremely hard considering the case itself weighs a good 36 lbs, but I think it will be worth it when all is said and done. I'm going to reuse some of my old Rosewill 12cm fans but down the line I'm planning on picking up some nice 14cm fans since all the mounts are that size. I think I'll try my Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer out again as I can mount it in the front and suck in the nice fresh air instead of having it soak up all my 7970's heat like it did in the back of my NZXT Source 210, and also what my CM TPC-812 is doing right now as my CPU temps go up about 10-15c when the card is doing anything despite 7 120mm high speed fans in the case.

    Also, my 3770K ATX rig keeps freezing up and I think the GTX 470 has about had it. I think I'll give it a few more chances and yank the card out if it still acts up at stock clocks. I'm glad a 7950 is as good as four of them and a GTX 780 is about 7 lol.

    Awesome case dude! :toast: I have every recent Fractal Define (R4, XL R2, and the Mini) and really like all of them :rockout:

    The only complaint I had with the XL is that the top has a little flex to it but other than that it's nearly perfect.

    Pro tip: pull the extra fan off of the bottom and put it in with the other 140mm in the front- then... pick up a Silverstone 180mm AP fan and put it in the bottom (as an intake).... trust me, it fits! :pimp:

    When I get home, I'm going to try something that probably won't end up working, but I want to see if there is any possibility of mounting my Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer push/pull in the front top fan area, with either the push fan mounted internally or if the tubing is still long enough, putting the push fan inside the removable dust filter area. My 7970 dumps out so much heat into my NZXT Source 210 that the case temp is 35-38c and it raises my CPU temps about 10-15c which is even harder on a non-soldered IHS CPU. I have 7 120mm fans in it currently, all running at 1200+ RPM, and it isn't enough, especially since my tower sits in an open front/back "CPU cabinet" built into my L-shaped desk. Hopefully the noise dampening helps a little bit although I am not expecting miracles.

    Push-Pull would be tough in the front (you'll see). However, the distance in the case should allow that Tt cooler access to much better air. Turning the 2nd HDD cage makes a great air guide too ;)

    Fans in mine:
    - 2x Fractal 140's (front)
    - 1x Fractal 140 (rear)
    - 2x Corsair AF 140's (top)
    - 1x Silverstone AP 180 (bottom)

    I don't think the i7-920 has been past 55C since I started it :)

    This means that BOINC can't use your GPU, but the BOINC manager and the client interact just fine. This is what I've done on all of my systems, except for the ones that I expressly put GPU crunchers in :)

    Up to 80% load from 60% and still stable. Temps currently at around 35-36ºc. :toast:

    Dang! In the future, I am going to toss in a GPU capable of crunching into that box. And assuming we are going to get GPU work sometime this year, it'd be a Major Bummer™ if it couldn't be used.
    *sigh* Gotta think of some other way to make BOINC virtually invisible.

    Not sure why, but I just thought of this. What if we make a list that has our TPU username and our crunching usernames? I know some people go by different names and it'll just be nice to have as reference. What do you guys think?

    A splendid idea! I really wanted such a thing, but never got bold enough to suggested it!
    Thus, +1!

    Will make it so the WCG challenge operators have a reference. Will help in similar endeavors.

    I will go into detail after sleep, but best $99 ever spent on a case. Watercooling mounted in the front with a mm of tubing to spare, CPU temps dropped 10-15c already, and it is under half as loud. I'M IN LOVE. :eek:

    Alright guys, I'll make a new thread later where we can update the list and keep it all in one post. :toast:
