    I posted in the other thread yesterday to say i would be gaming for a few hours, Well that never happened in the end as i decided to give the pc a clean and damn i am glad i did now.

    I don't know how but one of the screws that go into the backplate on my corsair H80 decided to work its way loose, Am suprised it never caused any heat problems.

    Back up and running now and been crunching all night but seems like the gpu was slacking as i had to force an update to get new work units for my gpu this morning lol.

    Well the new router never came! It has been at the UPS in my home town for TWO full days with no movement. The delivery date was nov 1st and I called to see what was going on and they told me they would call me back with an update which never happened. UPS blows sometimes.

    Hmmm, whenever I am running everything, It only runs one GPU wu. How do I make it run more, while still doing other wu's?

    If you're interested, you might be able to run more threads on that 7970. The WUs are faster and you'll get more points:

    Triple cores always strike me as strange--but that one is doing good work! It looks like it's completing each WU about as fast as one of my i7s :toast:

    So what I'm going to do today is reinstall Windows 7 on a seperate ssd, and then start running the BOINC from there. (I don't want to get rid of my win8) From what I can tell, other have had good success with mutli WUs on 7 but errors/crashes with 8. So that'll be this after noon. I'm running out to eat lunch so I'll do it when I get back home :)

    Let's hope it'll work then! :toast:

    When I get my HD7770 on Monday and I ascertain what games are included, I'm throwing them in to the pot :toast:


    Also, my i7-QM is finishing it's last batch of SN2S WUs ATM--I'm going to throw Linux on it tonight, and then it'll be doing HCC only :toast:

    I'd assume ~$20-25 or so.

    little bit more (35-40) but that's a good ballpark figure :)

    @manofthem- not sure what T and KieX are using but Mad Shot is using the 12.6's for his 7850 with decent results

    That's the 32-bit version--get x64 from here
    I wonder how NE makes any money on the $30-40 cases with free shipping (even after counting for their cheaper shipping rates) :eek:
