    Cool :)

    You should just be able to set the voltage to ~1.4v, and then up the base clock until you get ~3.6ghz. For a small OC, AMD's new CPUs are very good & easy to OC :)

    CP that X2 is a decent cruncher. 3.5ghz@1.35v (YMMV) 24hr LinX stable and was cooled with a Xiggy s1283 with a 800rpm 120mm fan. Most i saw temps was 35c

    That's pretty good :)

    I assume it got right at ~1k PPD?

    That's not bad at all, the C2Q w/ normal use only does ~1.4k

    keep in mind that is being a dedicated cruncher running windows xp 64bit that has been stripped down to the bare minimum.

    Aha, didn't realize you had done all of that :eek:

    I have a specifically-customized XP x64 ISO that I use for dedicated rigs. Lean, mean, and seems to give the best performance for BOINC (although, Windows Server also works well)

    i have found that custom installs are best for performance and seem to have less problems(like crashing/BSOD,etc) I have a CD of xp x64 that i have basically everything removed and after i install it i just add whatever i need to get the task done.(most of the time all i have to do is install a driver or 2 and WCG and setup the network)

    I did alittle testing one time when i had multiple rigs and i found that the installs that had the minimum really did have less problems and slightly better PPD.

    So for all of you crunchers that have dedicated rigs you may want to consider using a stripped down OS.

    I must say I like to use Windows Server, I have a couple copies I got for free, and they already have most things removed, and are even more stripped down than the XP install I use. It can make for a fine desktop OS, but IMO it makes for a quite good OS for a, well, server, or dedicated WCG rig.

    All I typically do with it is set up WiFi, install BOINC, and call it ready to go :)

    I may have to consider using windows server for a build just to try it out,but i'm not sure that i want to stray away from the ol'leliable XP that i have been using.

    on another note onedub sent the ram out but i have yet heard anything from BLK on the CPU :ohwell:
    I know he said it would be next week(that would be this week) before he could send it out but the sooner i get another cruncher running the better.

    Definitely, the more the merrier :laugh:

    Normally I probably wouldn't try WinServ, but at the time I had run out of XP licenses, and I was able to *legally* get WinServ, so I decided to give that a shot

    i was going to see if i could track down a legal copy of server but in that case i think i will stick with XP x64 :toast:

    Yeah, after 240 days it still works fine, just it says that it's not genuine. Like I care :rolleyes:

    This X2 has peaked 1k before, normally does around 800ppd.

    Passively it runs 30ºc at default voltages/clocks. I don't think I have any other fan. I can pull one from the CM case, but it kinda needs as much airflow as possible. Things get heated in there with everything under load. :eek:

    I'm amazed that it runs 30c full load w/ no fan!

    I'll see what fans I have CP, I think I have a 40mm somewhere if you really want it :)

    CP what you need is a nice low speed fan for it. If it is doing that good passive then with a low speed fan on it and overclocked would still give some good temps I'm willing to say under 40c

    Maybe even below that, depending on how far he pushed it ;)

    I could see ~30c @ 3.4ghz being possible w/ even a low-RPM fan

    i could see you being right but i based mine on if he was to run it at 3.6ghz@1.38v and i also set it alittle higher. I don't think i ever saw that CPU hit 45c even during the 4+ghz suicide clocks. But i have seen the CPU at 9c:D(Water cooling+low room temp+ice=amazing temps)

    But doesn't he have some huge HSF on it?

    Once it gets down to ~30-40F here, I'm going to take my laptop outside, remote into it, and see what I can do in regards to temps.

    Or maybe just put it in the freezer. That's an idea :)

    yes he has a big heatsink on it (the mega i think) i was using a xiggy s1283 with mine so i'm sure his temps will be better then mine.
