Ah, well, it's not hot enough yet to warrant that, but I do turn on one or more fans most days
2 computers, two people, and a cat disagree. Hottest room in the house.
Although if the room was bigger, it wouldn't be so bad.
EXCELLENT WORK EVERYONE!!!!
hawt damn, thats how its done
Wow, that's with my rig down a decent chunk of the day... (Heat issues.)
Makes me feel like I shouldn't even bother crunching.
Nice work everyone.
That is a better number, we can get over 2 million though
Everything counts. Its not a race. Your contribution is just as important as everyone else. Everyone has to start somewhere. I started out crunching 2 old laptops in the begining. You will get there, we will help you. Your very important to this team, dont ever think different.
Your contribution is very important, every little bit counts! (The only WCG rig I had for the first ~1.5 months was a Pentium M laptop that did ~165 PPD)
Dammit dude, that really sucks. If at least it was a valid reason, but geez!
Good luck bro
Awesome Great job everyone
Dude, do i smack you now or later, or now and later?
I'm still crunching CP, don't worry.
Gunna install WGC on my GF's laptop tonight.
That sounded much better than the post I quoted above
I did end up getting it installed, it's running at 80% but at least that's a lot better than nothing. I'm not sure how much it's going to be on, but again, anything is better than nothing
I've started up folding again guys, hopefully we can make it to 2 million ;D
welcome back bud, happy crunching!
Cheers ;D just need a new cpu cooler or something so i can overclock my cpu more
Check out the link in my sig if you need any refreshing on stuff for WCG
good job . Anything is anything bro
welcome back buddy!
Maybe i don't need a new cooler to overclock my cpu.
I just took my pc apart, and rebuilt it, with cable managment and adding more exhaust/intake fans in mind. I also changed the stock thermal paste to some artic silver and im really amazed by the outcome.
before my efforts, my cpu would hit 60c on idle, and around 75-80 on load, Now im getting 39c idle and 59c on full load! And the temps should come down more because the thermal paste needs time to settle in doesn't it?
Well with that, i can start to overclock my cpu to get more numbers for the team!
Hey glad your temps dropped a lot, however I wouldn't go higher. 55 is safe max for me, 62 is max recomended by AMD.
Nice work. CP has it right on the temps. If you can keep it under 55c or so you will be golden. I just picked up an arm full of little 120v fans to help with my temps. Little 9.99 fans made a huge difference with my load temps. Ive got them all over the place in my room moving air. Dropped my temps 3 or 4c. The test will be this afternoon. We are going to see 80 degrees + today.
I'd stay where you are in terms of OCing, I really don't like to see over 55c on my Phenom II X4. If you pick up a Scythe Mugen 2, Xigmatek HDT-S1283 or a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ you'd be able to OC a decent amount more
Well, what temperatures are considered to be safe for a PII X4? so i know what limit to stay under
well, im hitting 63 on full load @ 3.5ghz, should i pull back a bit?
