    Oops. That doesn't sound like such a great PSU, all things considered :p
    Even the TT700w I have sounds like it would do a better job...

    I cant get my 4100 to run the WU's again.

    Check the Event Log--what does it say there? And are there any WUs running? Is memory usage very high? Is BOINC set to "Run Always"?

    I just got home from the weekend trip. I left my computer crunching, only way to check on it was results from WCG website, which stopped updating friday night; I got home and the computer was hardlocked the whole time. Somebody turned the AC off in the house as we were leaving evidently and it got pretty warm, like 27c. I think the VRMs got too warm. I should've put a fan right on it. So basically I did almost nothing lol

    Man sorry to hear! It's super disappointing to see that, to come home to a rig with no output :mad: We feel for you!

    The last time I went away for 4 days, my pc had BSOD'd shortly after leaving, and it didn't restart, so 4 days wasted. :banghead:

    Computers are unpredictable....they'll work fine for a while, and then bam, all of a sudden things stop working properly. Nothing to feel bad about, although it is disappointing :(

    I think I will switch my profiles, until a few days before the BIG Challenge. Would like to get some SN2S's under my belt.

    It doesn't look like anyone else has done the math. We won by 65,719 points. That's ~21,907 WCG PPD more than France which, if I'm not mistaken, is about one average PC's output (around here, at least). We won by a nose and it was thanks to absolutely everyone who contributed. :toast:
