    aye, I tried disabling power saving features, including Cool 'n Quiet. I tried many things, even seemingly unrelated ones. Nothing helps. And setting the multiplier from within the OS seem to not fail... except it does and it just stays at 1.4 GHz

    From previous several times this happened I have noticed there is only one solution - wait. It gets unstuck after some time. But that can take up to several days, experience shows.

    BTW, this bug appears to trigger sometimes after I adjust my CPU clock in the BIOS. *sigh*

    Well, I downgraded my BIOS. It didn't solve the CPU clock problem, but at least I no longer have all the "new" bugs.
    Really, the latest BIOS for my mobo is such a horrible mess of bugs, it puzzles me greatly how it managed to slip through QC and get shipped.

    i will be adding the 4 threads of the 9600B after i setup the rest.

    The Xeon will be on crunching perdiodically, when i dont need the pc but the Phenom will be permanently on during the event.

    Alright, I am in.

    Got my 3770K back up to running 8 threads since it will not be having to feed the F@H Client. Went to get my APU up and running in Mint and am having issues- 99% sure its related to the USB stick. I'm seriously done using USB sticks for Linux installs, so much headache :laugh: I'll see about getting a spare HDD squared away and installed in it later on. Going to take a break and setup my PS4 :D

    Alright, I'm currently setting up the i7-920 from Stinger now. It unfortunately doesn't seem to have the OC capabilities that I was led to expect, but whatever. Even at stock it should be a competent cruncher. I've installed Mint and am currently updating it to verify that the HDD is sound (I think so, but wouldn't swear to it). If not I can reinstall on another one.

    Weekend at the cabin. Left my 12 cores-20 threads crunching away at home. Brought my laptop so I can game and not take away points. Its the ultimate sacrifice but worth it. :laugh:

    I do enjoy a bit of crunching/folding, my 2 rigs are smashing out the units and keeping pretty damn stable and I cant complain about temps. 10 hours so far...

    ive turned off the heating and well these 2 are heating the flat (best say 'apartment' or itll confuse some others) lol


    just seen I had 1 error... computational error..
