I was in the same range you are.... the combo never clocked that well for me.
I see my old XFX HD 5770 is still kicking.
New cruncher inbound. testing to see how it fairs against my Amd rigs. And I may have the possible rebirth of another.
Ahhh ok, yea I was just wondering if I was getting close
Yep still rocking hard. Its hoping to get some more work from WCG though
Leaving Sunday morning for Las Vegas. Going to be gone a week. Thought about leaving the rig running but with all the storms we have had this week thought better of it. It will be the last thing off as we head out the door.
See you in a week.
Have a safe trip Bow
Have some good fun!
See you when you get back!
Cool setup! Is that an unlocked X3 720BE?
At 3.83 running W7 x64 I think I got about 4.5k from my i7-920
and my growing list of getting things on sale / not retail price continues, worked out a deal for a FX 8320 for $70. It had a bent pin but im going to look at it before i buy it and borrow a mobo to test it in.
Running at 40%, as it is my main server, but that will gives some more PPD
any recommendations for an inexpensive AM3+ board? i was thinking something like this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157292 ASRock 880GM-LE FX AM3+
maybe this one: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138345
what is the budget?
+1 those are my favorite budget boards! Got an FX-8150 in one of mine, 1045t in the other one, atm and both are crunching right along
trying to keep it under $100 if possible, 80-100 is my range.
That Biostar looks sweet and is at a nice price point. Also liking that it has onboard video, making a gfx card purchase a luxury
The Asrock got aswell, but the biostar is cheaper of 10$. They seems to have nice board.
That Biostar has an 880G/SB850 chipsets as well... most other budget boards have 760G/SB710 chipsets
ima go with the Biostar board as it has Sata 6gb/s ports (4) as opposed to the AsRock's 3gb/s
Whatever board you chose make sure you go to the maunfactures website and check to make sure it supports the proc you want to run. Some don't support over 95 watt proc.
And that's how I got a FX-8320 for a FX-8120
Much of today was spent diagnosing issues with my 3930k system--namely that CPU temperature soars out of control and as soon as it boots Windows it hangs. I'm pretty sure that the issue is that the pump has gone bad--I don't hear it running, and the CPU WB/tubing right by it gets insanely hot. I've contacted XSPC on the hopes of RMAing it (it's just four or five months old at this point) but I've heard bad things about their customer service. Even best cse scenario it will take hours to disassemble and reassemble the loop
I am trying to get my c2d 6300 crunching again. I wont download any wu's though. I just reinstalled boinc twice. I checked to make sure all the settings are ok. I go to WCG site to see if all of those settings are ok. Everything looks good for settings as far as I can see.
Sorry to hear it [Ion], hope it gets settled soon.
Same here... sucks to have a rig go down
I have my new "temporary" setup up and running (GB 970A UD3 mobo/1055T cpu) but won't run it full time for right now due to having too many systems running at home atm. Hope to have all of the pieces in for the i7-970 build within the next couple of weeks and have that rig up and crunching by the middle of next month
@manofthem- how did the maintenance session go on your rig?
Can anyone tell me if it takes longer for CEP2 to spool up than other projects do? I think I'm seeing some weird numbers and i can't figure anything else out for it. One of my rigs was way down for numbers (about half it's daily output), but the rig seems perfectly fine working away and still submitting results.
I know some of my rigs were running out of FAAH since I changed the settings to allow unlimited CEP2 WU's. On top of that, the newest rig I built started with CEP2 WU's and it seems to be taking much longer to spool up than normal.
