    Well, got it stable at 4.5ghz, 1.272v. Max temps seens by core temp: 69C.

    Now it is crunching at 70%, 8 threads :toast:

    I can do that if you'd like! I'm pretty sure that I still have a bunch of info left over from the WCG competition I ran a couple months back :)
    Are you going to push it up past 70%?

    What is it with you and adding "TM" after things? :p

    My solution when I have a WCG GPU is just to enable auto-login on that system. Not quite as secure, but it is what it is. Why does it need to be all but invisible?

    Here's *a* pic until I can upload them later. Yes, CM could be better but I worked on this thing for almost 4 hours this morning.

    Wow, so much space in there! I really like the long tubes on the Antec and Thermaltake LC kits--and the tubing they use feels sturdier than that used by Corsair.

    Are you going to put a fan blowing over the board, as well?

    I might, but the case has nice "ModuVent" fan space covers with noise cancelling material and I left the side panel plugged up for now. If I need to add one, it should be no problem but at the expense of more noise. :)

    I wasn't necessarily talking about a fan on the side panel--but on my 3930k I have an Antec Spotcool and on the 2600k I just have a fan sitting on top of the GPU blowing at the socket. It should contain the noise a bit better.

    Bummer, the GA-880GM-USB3 doesn't support Vishera :banghead: It runs but at 2.8Ghz :( The CPU support list states that it supports the 8150 so I don't know why it wouldn't support Vishera properly :confused:

    Switching to the GA-780LMT-USB3 lets it runs at 4Ghz but hits a wall at 4.1 (it won't even turbo to 4.2 in single thread). I guess I'll buy an 8320 next time instead and OC to 4Ghz to save a few bucks.

    Maybe I should try to undervolt to save some power. Has anyone tried their hand at it?

    I assembled that computer for my dad to use at work, where he is only provided with a low-RAM P4 machine. He is fully aware of the fact I want to run BOINC 24/7 while he's not working on it and is fully OK with that.
    So I just want to make BOINC to get in his way as little as possible. i.e. so he would not need to worry about it even a bit

    I would run it normally, hide the tray icon and disable notifications.

    I believe luck is much of factor here. On the quality of the chip You got. I was not very lucky with my FX-8320. It needs a relatively high voltage or it starts "throwing tantrums". Meanwhile I run my FX-8120 overclocked, yet undervoltaged quite a bit. Was much more lucky with this chip.

    yup for sure, this winter. Right now, I'll wait to see the electricity bill, then might put it to 100%

    Might be better off to get another board, with good VRM's, than trying to run that 8350 on those boards. If you want to stick with the 880GM, then we can always swap- my 8150 for your 8350 :p

    nah, I think I'll sell the 880s and get a couple of 78LMTs. I wasn't planning to overclock the FX that much, 4.4, 4.5 tops but if I can get an 8320 to run at 4Ghz on the 78LMT that'll be optimal IMO: I'll save a few bucks and still have 8 cores at 4Ghz.

    Unless you really want a 5ghz overclock I don't see a reason to get the 8350. 8320 is just fine.

    Okay, the new box is up and running! Still in "test mode", but if everything goes well, tomorrow it's going to a new home and will start working full time. :toast:

    I'm getting some vives from the 8350 tin can in front of me, taunting me to get one for myself.

    It's been a while since I've build an AMD box (like since the K6). Is there an E-ATX AM3+ board out there? I want to fill this Cosmos to the brim.


    In other news my ppd will vary a lot due to the shuffling and because I'll tear down the 1055ts to put them on sale.

    Once I sell one of the 1055ts I'll buy a couple of 78LMTs to replace the 880GMs. Too bad they don't support the Visheras, I can't yet wrap my mind around it, they can take my 1090t to 4Ghz but can't support the Visheras even at stock settings??? :banghead:

    Just wanted to keep everyone posted on my AMD rig. Been going 100% CPU usage for over 24 hours now, max temp is just 37ºc a stock clocks. So far so good :toast:

    The AMD Athlon 64 X2 one, the one I assembled for my dad to use at work, the one that's going to leech off electricity from my university :)


    P.S. I am worried about Norton a bit - no news from Him in the Milestone / Pie threads. I hope He just decided to post "tomorrow", as He was thinking of doing and not something serious.

    Great! :toast:
    Ahh, that one :)

    He's OK--I've been PM'ing him about something. He's especially busy at work right now, so that also doesn't help.

    Yep I'm fine... no more nuts than usual and a little tired from the long hours but am hoping everything will be back to "normal" by next week.

    Will be catching up the Stone and Pie posts when I can, with FreeDC reporting later I may end up posting the following day- I need to get sleep more than wait until late into the evening to get the final numbers atm :eek:

    Let me know if you want me to jump on it--I'm usually up when they come out :)

    My 2600k system is doing amazingly--running just DSFL it's pulling just shy of 9k PPD. With just FAAH it would do just over 6k PPD. Linux is amazing :D
