    woot! got it installed and running on CentOS 6. I just had to install some i686 versions of packages. So you can add a 980x (actually Norton's old chip) to your lineup. it won't be 100% since it also runs a bunch of other stuff but i figure it is better than nothing.

    edit: my wcg name is "easy rhino" and i chose the "World Community Grid" project. I hope i did it right.

    Glad to have you aboard, good sir :respect:

    You should now be able to choose which projects exactly you wish to crunch for on WCG's site.

    I'll see what I can do about getting the work server in to the fray here, but no promises. If anyone has any tips on controlling fan speed on a Dell PowerEdge 2950 under Linux, I'm listening. :p

    (I think they're about $400-500 on eBay and the one we have is good for about 6k ppd. Not bad price/perf, imo)

    I am most certainly in with my all crunchers. Already set to FAAH for LOL MAXIMUM POINTS~! Yeeeaaaaahaaawwwww!!!!

    P.S.
    >Qualifying period ends [...] 11/29/2013
    29th? Isn't that a typo? The challenge ends on the 22th, so it seems quite odd.

    I still need some for a Sapphire badge for FAAH, so I figured "why not? Been waiting for the Sapphire long enough. A bit acceleration will do no harm, eh?"

    We're requiring 5,000 pts for prize qualification so the period is extended, if necessary, for late starters/slow crunchers ;)

    Awesome! I'll use the systems in my sig, and I have a couple of GTX680s laying around and an old Q9550 that just needs assembling and a PSU. Will probably get a cheap PSU to have this old warship join our fleet! It's gonna get real hot in my apartment, the electric bill will go up but my gas bill will probably come down this month as I wont be using the heater! :rockout:

    Sounds great! :toast:

    WCG doesn't use gpu's atm but the cpu's in your rigs will do well.... likely Top 10 or even Top 5 in our Team if they're all running 100%

    Power/heat will also be a little more reasonable with just the cpu's. ;)

    Oh, I see, that's even better then, I already have this old 350W PSU I bet will be enough to power that old Q9550, no need to get a new PSU then! Thanks for clearing that up!

    Alrighty then, I shall assemble that old rig tomorrow night! Will be joining you guys pretty soon! :rockout:

    Im going to have to fight for my #5 spot. I might even have to switch the 4770k to Linux but it is a little late for that at this point.

    Im in guys. Been along time since I have crunched. Putting both my 2600k and am wondering how much a 965 would do. Also a link to keep track of my points would be great. Thanks in advance.

    I was crunching on a 965. It gets 2500-3000ppd. It is not a slouch that is for sure. Every work unit you complete is for science even on a lowly atom processor or old Pentium 4. It is worth it. I believe Ion does have some atoms crunching too, or did.

    Well I'd say so. It's still a useful chip and does SCIENCE!

    I'm running a number of dual core systems and a C2Q, all of which get less than 3k PPD. So if you can bear the power usage, I'd say go for it :toast:
    Had the Atom going last year & over the summer. Off right now because I don't have anywhere to put it :p
