    If we are going to play that game ... 4770k running at 55c. I can't wait to get this thing crunching. I need more stability testing though just to make sure.

    It's not technically stock clocked, it's actually at 3.6GHz (the Biostar board it's on is pretty awful it would seem and doesn't OC well) but I'd say it does well enough :)
    The AMD FX8350 is also running at sub-35c, also with a Hyper 212+

    Looking good, should serve as a nice cruncher and a nice addition to the farm!

    Only if I showed a pic of a mobo with more than one socket ;)

    This is a replacement of a 6 core PII with a 6c/12t i7.... out of funds for a little while after this is finished :eek:

    Ehh, you could just add on a dozen i7s or something--that would do it!

    Guys, do you think my new phone with Android 4.1 and a Mediatek 6575M SoC (Single core A9 @ 1 GHz and PowerVR graphics) can handle BOINC for Android well enough? If so, do you think I can use the phone's WiFi by connecting a USB network adapter? You see, I have PC my connected to the internet directly (WAN, AFAIK), therefore I have no router at my student room. Can I establish a connection between my PC and phone via such an adapter through WiFi (801.11g/n/b)?

    Update: If needed, I would be fine with using e.g. a VM with Linux and Samba. I only ask here because I prefer this to a router for several reasons (but since it isn't I started to doubt about the techncal possibilities).

    I don't think you'll get much, a Tegra3 got 400-500 PPD at best, and I don't know what my Nexus 7 2013's Snapdragon S4 Pro would do 24/7, but I would say around 500-600 PPD at best. You're welcome to try though it will probably just degrade your battery with constant heat.

    Thanks for the advice. Yeah, I better don't buy a TP-link USB adapter for like 100-200 PPD and have all the networking hassle. When it comes to the battery, I would remove it assuming I can operate the phone on e-grid power.

    Often not. Even if it would let you, these types of devices often use more than 1 amp under load. When charging, the battery pretty much acts as a capacitor to provide extra current under high load.

    Computing on ARM has interested me though. Of particular interest to me is the HP Moonshot ARM server, currently only available with Intel Atom processors. Still, an army of high efficiency, low power processors should provide some pretty good compute power.

    (Also, I think it looks rather nice)

    What would a dual AMD Opteron 6128 Magny-Cours 2.0GHz setup net in PPD? Anyone have any ideas?

    Because WCG has no early return bonuses(like in F@H), production should be somewhat linear per CPU. You must populate 4 memory dimms per CPU to get it optimized(Quad channel memory) and a SuperMicro H8Q board would allow overclocking(with [H]NextGenOCBios). With that said and based on Kai's rig,...you should expect approx 10K ppd+/- from a dual 6128 setup @ stock clocks. The 6128's are known to be good overclockers(20-25%). The price of the Moboards are the major hurdles.

    If you decide to go 4P x12 MagnyCours, my 4P-6180 rig has done 49K in a single day.

    Under Linux about 9.5-10K. A used 3930K@4GHz would do better + you save money on the board.

    I saw a guy who's selling a complete (?) rig for $300 shipped. Thinking about it if he would take something decent in trade (partial at least).

    I have now deemed my 4770k completely stable at 4.4ghz. Installing boinc... :D

    I also found this new, so new its in beta, project. It looks interesting to me. http://mindmodeling.org/

    Got the X58/i7-970 rig all put together and it fires up fine :toast:

    Having some issue with the HDD- can't access thru Linux or W7 install but the BIOS sees it fine?

    It's late and I'm tired so I'll leave it until tomorrow and try a different HDD :ohwell:

    Found a lancool case + 430w psu for $10 on my local craigslist. That alone might get my phenom rig back up.

    Is something like this necessary on some boards? If so it would be the 1st time I came across it.

    It's a Rampage Extreme III and I believe I've tried all of the various modes (AHCI, IDE, etc..). Also, tried the SATA III controller side w/o success (board has 6xSATA 2.0 and 2xSATA 3.0)

    I'll go through the manual again when I get home tonight to see if I missed something :eek:

    I had finally convinced a friend of mine to let me test the X3430 in his P55 board and IT POSTED! unfortunately for me I need to sell it to pickup BF4 and a cooler for this G6950 so I threw it up on ebay at half the price of the current X3430 listings to see if it would sell quick. If anyone is interested PM me and I can link you to the ebay post.

    I am thinking I ran a RAID 0 w/ two 256GB SSD's when I last used that board...
    I believe I used the Marvell raid controller. Never needed a pre-os driver. Make sure all of the RAID settings are disabled.

    What partition table did you format the dysfunctional drive with? It must be a DOS parttition table (good old mbr) to let it work on non-EFI motherboards (not GPT).
