    But consistency + OC is even better. If you can get a consistent 4.4GHz out of a 3.5GHz CPU (such as I have with my 2700k) then that's 25% boost 24/7 :toast:

    But I agree with you, even if it's not OCed (such as my 3770k) just consistent running helps out quite a bit :)

    Well yeah, I meant consistency in general. As in if your motherboard isn't great for over clocking, then probably best too leave at a lower clock. But yeah, you're right.

    Yup. If it's a cheap board or something then the risk probably isn't worth it :)

    Got my Tricia rig home (the 1045T/790X one) and it will need some work :shadedshu

    It starts up ok but locks up or restarts shortly after I put a load on it. I'm thinking it's the psu or the HDD... the HDD is an old WD 80GB and the psu is a POS Rosewill. If it needs anything other than one of these parts I'll have to think about whether or not to repair or retire it.

    Hopefully I will be able to swap some parts around and get it running over the weekend.

    What "POS Rosewill" is in it currently? Hopefully the problem isn't major though the PII processors are getting old and they take a lot of juice.

    It's a Rosewill RV2-700 (terrible reviews for it) and it's been running 24/7 for over a year. The board is an ASUS M4A79XTD EVO that needed to be sent to ASUS for warranty repair after I got it- never trusted it 100% but it's been fine for nearly a year since.

    My cheapest Rosewills are the RG530 (non-bronze) and they seem a lot better than your model. No problems with mine so far. :)

    Bill, if you need a PSU let me know. I assume you're good on HDD's ;)

    All set on HDD's.... I know a guy :rolleyes: :laugh:

    I should be ok on PSU's. I have a Seasonic M12II 750w that I just picked up and the AX1200 if I need to use it to check the rig ;)

    If it's anything else let me know as I have some parts stowed away for the just in case moment. :toast:

    Speaking of parts, if anyone has some DDR3 RAM that they aren't using right now I'd love to pick up some--I'd like to get back up to 8GB in my gaming system and 6GB in each of my 8T crunchers. Not looking to spend a lot, but pretty much any functional DDR3 would work.

    i think so :) the father in-law just pulled the trigger on a Dell XPS 8700 (upgraded to 16GB ram and i7 4770) and he's putting aside his old Q6600 Dell for me :D it has an ancient ATI x300 in it though, so that has to go eventually :D

    Hey guys just wanted to see if anyone know someones with a spare 1156 (H55/P55) motherboard. I have a WTB add up and also have DDR3/2 memory in the thread for trade. This is to test a CPU and if it works then it will be crunched 24/7 here at home.

    At the moment, I have a 2x2GB set or Corsair DDR3-1600 available.

    Just found out that 3 rig isn't doing task anymore. Tried to remove the computer from WCG then re-enter it, no success.

    Intel Xeon(DC BOINC 5.10.45), AMD x4 and Sempron (Version 6 and later) isn't doing anything.

    restarted BOINC totally, seems to be working on the first (xeon), hope there won't any too much of bug like that!

    Look at my little i5 GO!!

    I am constantly amazed how well this thing runs, on top of 100% crunching, and how well it pumps out WU's.

    BTW, Watch your back! this little Turtle has got the legs!!

    I was just surfing the BOINC site. I came across the top 100 Boinc users, measured in gflops.

    Of the top 100, only 3, THREE, were running WCG. The top 100 in the world and only 3? Essentially, the top 100 best performing computers in the World, running BOINC, aren't running WCG, well three are.

    I know there are a bunch of good causes out there to run on BOINC. But with WCG, one gets a cross section of good causes the spreads your gflops across a larger swath of issues. I am a bit of a Math nerd and will run Prime 95, occasionally, but it makes my computer nearly useless and slows BOINC down, considerately. So, while this challenge is going and my personal goal to hit 100,000, Prime 95 is on hold.

    Point is, are these people ignorant of WCG? Or, are they really disinterested in it?

    Any ideas why only 3 are running WCG?

    Those top crunches are probably veteran crunchers who run BOINC on multiple computers since a time when WCG either wasn't there or still used a client of their own. I didn't check this for truth, but its seems to me that most top crunchers are veteran SETI or Einstein crunchers. Plus, some project give a way to high score for valid GPU WUs (e.g. DistrRTGen).
