Is that the 40" screen listed in your specs?
Not for gaming Brandon yes?
Nice! Who needs grafX for that!
Last picture of the night! All put together in the vulcan!
A Cruncher+Folder needs graphics :
Just need to add the SSD and this one will be going through some WUs. Something about this build seems off, just can't put my finger on it yet.
does folding even work with SLI?
Folding can be run on SLI cards with a little work. I do not think Xfire works with Folding though. I am not running the cards in Xfire, but it really just looked odd without the cable in there
When its all setup, one card will be free for WCG GPU Beta WUs and the second card will have the new F@H client running. That configuration should work 100%.
In other news, with the unlocking features enabled in the BIOS there is a fourth core recognized. Will have to wait until I get an OS installed for further testing.
woops, i meant to write crossfire and not SLI. my bad.
Still some work to do
What is crunching and why do people spend so much money on it?

Ive tried reading all that sort of stuff but i still dont get it, can you give it to me in a sentence or two? Also whats folding?
Lend your computer effects to "work" out scientific equations. Helping researchers work out the equations that help them learn/cure the problems of this world... Exp; Cancers... Due to the fact that it takes more and more computers, supercomputers, in order to do the calculations, they have groups of people do "packets" in which when sent back they do the work that is needed to figure things out...
In a few words, you are using your idle time to force cpu utilization to work on projects to better humanity and lower consumption of humanitarian resources.
Folding in a sense is the same, it mainly started to find a cure for cancer. Why the word folding? Well your CPU/GPU now is folding proteins as a research study.
It also satisfies the urge to push your overclocks while contributing to a good cause in the name of humanity.
Corrected. Trust me, you will want to have rock solid stability.
LOL..I thought stable was pretty much understood I tried pushing an unstable overclock once and got 2 pages of error results!!
Early days of crunching, I had a semi-stable overclock that ran crunching fine but crashed at complete idle. Only giving errors once in a while. This was back on the old school e5200 R0 chip (You remember that chip? Loved that thing.)
you'd be surprised how many people call a system stable, that still crashes.
my systems had two programs crash on me this month - so i think its stability is questionable. some people think 20 minutes of an FPS game means its stable.
So true Mussels, I'm sure mine is not 100% stable either but then again...it's working flawlessly...I'm too chicken to run prime to test it though LOL.
your sorta right f@h doesn't use CF but doesn't require you turn it off to be able to fold
stable is running F@H for a week without probs 2x GPU + SMP2 if it doesn't fail that then alls good
and sometimes programs crash simply because they're badly coded or just don't like your hardware it can be random sometimes
Added another 2GB of ram today for a total of 6GB. I also did some gaming in Mass Effect and League of Legends, the games that used to crash. And... no more crashing! I can also set other games to higher settings now with no issues. My WEI for ram didn't change, its still at 7.4. Some pics.
Ram total confirmed in cpu-z
Timings and such for the G.Skill ram I just added
Confirms Timing compatibility of the current Super Talent at 266mhz with the G.Skill
The G.Skills have a pretty nice heat spreader on them
All the modules installed.
