I got the one from berkely, apparently mines newer than that? should I install the link one?
Nah, what you have is fine
not sure if I should whack it up to 5ghz without stability testing?!
last time I done 5 days of crash-free crunching on these clocks
edit - tried 5ghz crashed straight away.. oh well its never been 5ghz stable. just 5.7ghz benchable??!
SETI.Germany has a stats tool that will show challenge updates (WCG ppd) more frequently (added to the OP)
*Note- looks like there's a few sandbaggers in the top ranks However, we are in 7th place at the 1st hr.
Odd. My 2500k is running of a usb stick with mint quite nicely. I got it just for that purpose. A 32gb usb 3.0 with 180mb/s read speeds. Honestly feels like a regular slow hdd, because of the 40mb/s write.
I haven't had much luck with my USB installs. Only HDDs for me.
BTW, anyone knows about a good low level format utility for Samsung, Toshiba and Hitachi HDDs?
Yeah, I've used the USB stick for all my Linux installs but they all die, eventually. This is probably my fifth one now. Longest lasting one went a month or two before it quit.
I always seem to be short a hard drive whenever I am setting up Linux.
When I had the fleet of the HP Compaqs last year I ran many of them off of USB sticks b/c I didn't have enough HDDs. While I do prefer a regular HDD install, the USB drives worked fine...right now it's power supplies that I'm somehow short on...
Usbs lives are measured in writes. An hdd's is not. The ideal situation would be an hdd. I felt like playing with a usb 3.0 drive though too. I do plan on getting a real hdd eventually.
Okay, free isn't good enough for you guys, so WD will pay you to take them off of their hands.

Edit: Oops, I read that wrong. I saw $20 instead of 20%. And it is PATA. (or is that PITA?)
That's an IDE though..... there's a much better source right here in our forum
This afternoon me & my pops are going to use our connections to arrange a computer class in 'da university to crunch for the time of the challenge. If we succeed, that would mean additional ~25 of FX-4100s crunching for TPU during the challenge. Wish us luck!
Also, I am going to write for ASUS support now. And hope I will at least get an actual answer from a technician who knows what he/she is talking about instead of a semi-automated one that has a helpfulness rating of some negative number. Baaaaah.
plus how many others have Fx-4100s crunching?!
that's over 100 cores of crunching....
cold living room + cruncher : heaven?
temp on cpu 40° max for the Xeon and 56° for the Phenom i've seen worse
Just heard back from F150_Raptor. He is cranking up his Opty 6176 Server, so add another 48 Cores for TPU to the the cause. Thanks F150_Raptor!!!!!!!!
Great news! Thanks for the help F-150!
C'mon tpu no.1 this year!
weehee i passed from bronze to silver badge for FAAH
time for job: gaming off full output on both rigs crunch time!
Switched back to all projects
woah tpu is getting slaughtered
Im just looking at the other teams stats and most of them have dropped output by over half, it seems they most of 'pre-cached' or something.
we need to take advantage, recruit more and more!
wouldn't it be nice if we had gpu units
It's a marathon, not a sprint.... look at the results in a couple of days
Also, those Top 3 Teams all seem to have held a significant batch of work to dump at the start.
Kinda reminds me of some of the tactics of the Chimp Challenge:shadedshu
Kinda looks weird when you start a challenge outputting 10x your daily average:
