Even F@H is weird over the weekend
Oh? In what way? I don't have any issues with it
a lot of people go out for the weekend or stay home and play pc games
Could be that, but I always thought it was just an issue with WCG
so was mine. I already told why in the other thread.
on weekends i go out most of the time but leave my rig run. this weekend i wasn't so lucky as it didn't run for long after i left
My one i7 rig was down Thursday night and part of Friday as I was moving it into a case to make room for my new addition (second i7 rig). Finally got the new i7 up and running last night. Rather disappointed in EK as the new waterblock I bought only had three screws with threads while the fourth was a blank (no threads)
I was/am sooo pissed. I will check Home Depot and Lowes today after work to see if I can find a match. Anyways, I installed the trusty 'ol Noctua NH-D14 and she is running on the Asus Sabertooth MB at 3.8 GHZ on 1.24 volts. Temps are staying in the mid-to-low 50's
Will post some pics later/
Either way - have two i7 920's crunching again It is no were near the five I used to have, but two will do for now
If I'm not mistaken there's a update on Sunday I believe where some stats are not available or something. It was posted over at the F@H thread not long ago. Can't recall it now.
I only go out occasionally on the weekends, and when I do my rig is usually off. But when I leave it on, I TV into it occasionally to make sure that everything is working right
Aha, that would make sense
2 i7s is still very impressive
With my H50 overnight I can get into the upper 50s on my i7 860 @ 3,8ghz (1,31v), but during the day it's in the mid 60s. Not bad IMO.
Shame that the EK WB came DOA
You would think that spending close to a $100.00 for a waterblock (including shipping) that you would not have these issues. Hopefully it will be an easy fix as I would like to see what the block can do...
Temps are cool also because it the weather is cooling down fast up here in Alaska
mjmike, we need to drink sometime. (If you are ever in my area, or I in yours, that is.)
Forgot you were in Alaska...yep, that would help
And that's an expensive WB, seems inexcusable to have issues @ that price. I'm sure it's a great WB, but that's almost 50% more than I paid for the H50, and it's a complete setup
Back to 1.6 Good job fellas.
Great job everyone.
I bumped up my X6 to 3.8 GHz fellas, since I put it in the new case things got much cooler so I gave it a shot and see how it behaves now.
Overclocking is definitely worth it IMO, both for dedicated crunchers & main rigs.
Now update your sig
nice 1 CP
i bumbed up to 4ghz again, i thought i already did it the other day, guess i was wrong
I don't know how much longer I'll keep it at this though, running at 55ºc, in the day it'll surely get hotter.
Maybe go for 3.6Ghz?
55c seems OK enough, that's what I ran my X4 at on the Xiggy cooler.
But your decision, and it will be cooling off soon
3.6 GHz is at 53ºc, and a few degrees for during the day and I'll be alright.
Are you going to OC the X2 as well?
Ummm probably when I have some time. The X6 I already had the overclock saved, just bumped the voltage and clocks down a bit and that's it.
