    OK, but, wouldn't a measurement of gflops be consistent regardless of project? You either have the hardware to have x number of gflops, or you don't.

    Am I using incorrect logic here? I can't claim to completely understand how a floating point works, technically but, I thought it is a constant related to hardware, as opposed to being dynamic (there's that word, again) by particular WU.

    IDK. :confused:

    O yeah, you meant GFlops. I was thinking about Free-Dc and BOINCstats or other points based sites. Although having GPU WUs helps those GFlops numbers go up as well (we cannot use our GPUs for WCG which influences our repored GFlops negatively.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have a HD7770 sitting on my desk staring at me and I don't know what to do with it. I am actually puzzled at the moment. I was going to swap both 7770's in the rig running crossfired 6850's but that would actually lower performance of that rig. Guess I will put it into the spare parts drawer for now and wait to see if any gpu units come along.

    I like this math:

    2x6850= 260w= 6970

    2x7770= 160w= 7870

    7870>6970

    Therefore... more peformance/less power with 2x7770's ;)

    finally, both my rigs are complete :D the 3570K rig just got a SSDNOW V300 120GB in it. I can finally stop spending money on my computers for a few months :p

    Is it just ME?

    Lately, it seems people in these forums have lost the ability to NOT be offended by an opinion opposed to their own.

    I mentioned, in a particular posting, that I thought 1600 DDR3 is plenty for most computer users, discernible differences are benchmark scores or used to edit movies, or such. Sure, some gamers are gonna claim over clocking their 2400 has made all the difference in the world.

    Fine. OK?

    You can have your opinion, do you need to berate me because I don't need that?

    So, it's just me right? I should stop posting my opinions right?

    :banghead:

    I do love this place, BTW. But sometimes, wow.

    If it's anything like the LGA 775 Xeons, you might be alright. The X3210 works in the Lenovo board I bought from you, even BSEL modded to 1333. Still need to get it running though, we STILL aren't moved into our new facility yet after almost a year. I have my current 4 machines over there because we got the FiOS 60/40 activated last week, and I have to use wireless tethering to my rooted 4G phone to get internet at the old place we're still working at.

    Yea the board my friend had it in was the same style but it was an asus P7P55-LE board and it worked great so I am thinking the H55 will be fine. This chip hit 4.2Ghz on a Asrock P55 extreme board but somehow the multi was unlocked on that board and the other boards we have tried have the multi locked

    Awesome--I suspect that that board will work better than my probably-dead Maximus III :)

    updated my rig cooler, NH-U12S push pull, ready for 100% this winter.

    CNPS10x will go to my Server, for running 100%!

    Awesome! I'm really happy with my Noctua coolers--I think yours will work quite well! :toast:

    Well, I got some nice result Vs the CNPS10x.

    I had after 2 mins of prime 95, highest core at 73C with Zalman STG2 Thermal paste. I have now MX-4 and with the noctua fan, i went to 73C on a room temp of 24C, and less size.

    Changed the noctua for my XSPC 1650rpm fan. less static pressure but more airflow. with the cooler design, room temp of 24.8C, highest core: 72C

    Push-Pull, 25C room temp, highest core 71C, but after it went back to 68-69C

    All Noctua test are done in a 30mins Prime95 run. So the CPU has time to stabilize the temp. Didn't want to run again a test on the CNPS10x, but sometimes, BOINC, not at 100%, could get to 71-72C highest core, so it is a nice upgrade I think.

    Just for mounting and size, this cooler worth it. Just too bad that I hate noctua fan color, it will go in my server :D

    I do have a cold, but I'm still rocking out to the thought I am finally home!

    EDIT: I did some catching up on the forum... and lost my "thanks" button. :(

    You're only allowed to thank a certain amount of times per day, that's why.

    Yeah, figured that much =]
    Especially since I came across people talking about this very thing by chance several times before.

    Looking through things, I can see my dad too a splendid care of my things while I was gone. Followed my instructions perfectly and then some more. Cheers for him for keeping my hardware crunching all that time. (and it was indeed a non-trivial task. Especially thanks to the buggy nvidia driver that makes my main computer lock up in a horrible way every ~40 hours or so)

    Is sure good to be home again! :)

    I was away for two weeks exactly, if I did not mess up my counting.
    So it appears we left at about the same time :laugh:
    Though, I was supposed to be held for 4 weeks there ("normal" minimun is 4 weeks for every patient who gets there, no matter the severity). But seeing how that place is crowded, it makes sense that they discharged me earlier. So they could house a more serious patient instead, probably.

    Glad I could still help with the warm up challange, despite all the trouble. I really can't thank my dad enough for looking after my boxen. I guess his title is less for show than I assumed before, heh!

    Hey! Good to see you are back! I hope you are doing well! Thank your Dad from all of us! We won the warm up challenge by a few nose hairs and without your machines running smoothly, we could have lost to the French! I shudder to think what I might have done, if that happened!
