no problem bro, glad it helped
just so everyone knows i am for real about folding anyone can take a look at my stats if they would like. I know i have said it before but i want to reassure everyone that the hardware i have been given is being used for crunching.
I will even give a link to look at my stats
LOL @ POS, no worries man.
Guys, for the first time I'm asking for something.
I currently have my main cruncher the i7 on stock cooling. Had some issues with the water setup so I ditched it temporarily until I get a few bucks and buy some new fittings/tubing/coolant etc. Right now rig is at 3.6 Ghz crunching at 45% and temps still hit upper 80's during the day. If anybody has any sort of cooler for the 1366 socket that is better than stock let me know. I can send cooler back once I am back under water. Just hit me up with offers. Thanks.
guys, also. PLease review the list in the first post and let me know if any changes need to be made, thanks
Well it doesn't matter what you set it to, 10% or 100%, max load temp will be the same. It doesn't go a consistent 45%, it spikes to 100% for a while, then back down to 0.
OK, stupid question, but is the 1366/socket b a lot bigger than 775? according to wikipedia it's 1.77 × 1.67 inches while 775 is 1.47 × 1.47 inches. Since every heatsink i've ever seen has a fair amount of overlap, wouldn't you be able to use the 775 hs if you had the right bracket (are the brackets even different?).
I don't even look at most of this stuff (except for AMD) until I need to for some reason so I apologize for my ignorance.
yes they do. If I crunch at 100% usage at 80% of the time like I used to on water, temps go into the upper 80's low 90's now at night.
If I crunch at 100% usage 45% of the time, temps stay under 80%
Not sure bro, I just measured my Apogee GTz waterblock (1366) and a stock socket 775 cooler I had laying around and the 1366 is slightly larger, not by much though.
I received this morning by fedex bogmali psu. now i need 4-5 coffee and i install this baby in my crunching rig
(I will not forget you Thursday)
their a tad bigger because surface area helps absorbe heat better. Its also because the i7's core is larger than its 775 cousin. so in order to accomidate the larger proc and the weight that would come from aftermarket cooling as well as the needed surface area. they expanded the mounting holes so you could fit all of it hile having it secure efficent etc.
Hey CP. I have a Evercool Transformer you can borrow..you just pay shipping. Alternatively, you can have it for $20 shipped. Basically for $10 when you consider it will cost $10 to ship the sucker.
you sending it with the mounting hardware, or I'll need to get that? and thanks bro
You got a link to the exact cooler?
Comes with mounting hardware for all platforms. Here's a link...
Replied. I've got your back, CP.
replied! You are the man Paul, I appreciate what you have done for me as well as for everybody else in here dude
Glad you could step up to the plate Mr. "I have to go Camping and cannot leave my Rigs on"
I would've had your back CP.........as a contingency back-up
Hey now, Bog. I did leave those rigs on stock while I was camping. However, one of the rigs had the Boinc client crash.
You know I love you.....now if you could just send that rad over that was meant for Velvet...........
let me know if you got anything you'll wanna let go, it'll be for my upcoming crunchers. Oops, not supposed to say that yet .
PM me an offer though, I don't wanna take them for free or for shipping, just in case you were thinking that
CP, any chance F@H deals can be in this thread as well? I am trying to get the 9800GTX+ in my FS thread to a F@H member (who is financially challenged, dedicated, but has out of date HW) for a really good price. Need help finding that member though- if one even exists!
Post it up, I don't mind. Post what the deal is and i'll add it to the list. Doesn't have to be F@H or WCG, hardware is hardware
It is a
Galaxy 9800GTX+ 512MB PCIe for a ridiculously good deal to a dedicated active folder.
Might have someone in mind, but I want it to go the MOST NEEDY, so nothing final yet!
