    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??!

    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.

    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! :toast:

    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.

    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 :rolleyes:

    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. :twitch:
