Okay guys, I would like to bring my Gateway P7811FX online for crunching. The problem is, the current processor (P8400) really isn't up to the task. :laugh:

After doing some research I have found that the best processor upgrade for this system is the Intel X9100 Core 2 Extreme. It will allow for crunching 4 threads. Not to mention being about the best and last processor for this aging system.

Now here is the issue with all of this:
Most of the sites that actually do still sell these are asking about $250 to $300:banghead:

These can be had from fleabay for around $150, which is about the most I would want to spend on this system.

Several years ago I won a legal battle with fleabay so naturally they will not allow me to have an account:roll:

I guess what I am asking here; does anyone have one of these or know where I can pick one of these up from...Other than of course fleabay.

I will not be able to afford this until the 19th of this month; about a week from now.

Having another ebay account is not a problem. I run over 50 ebay accounts, the major trick is to have a new credit card.

Are you just want to buy, so just get a buyers account only. Ebay buyers account are not looked at hardly anything unlike a sellers account. I have been banned with my real name on ebay many years ago and I still have a buyers account with my real name, I just use a different credit card.

lol :laugh::laugh:, I'm no scammer, I run a $400k+ revenue hair care business (LCC) on ebay. I mostly only sell on 10 accounts, then I just rotate to another 10 every month. The other 40 accounts are just back ups.

So tell me, why should ebay/paypal allow a buyer to return a empty box back with no product and still get refunded. Or allow paypal to ban your account for no reason, even after you supply a business license, full invoices from the company supplier, and still get denied after you appeal your process then they hold your money for 180 days.

98% of the population don't have the stomach to sell on any selling platform, they just dream and dream about financial independence and never do anything. They just spend away and retire flat broke.

I have been doing this for 8 years, full time for 3. I work from home and love it. I have multiple TRS ebay accounts with 99% or higher on all of them.

I work the system, the system does not work me.

I just go on here to read around and I still fold away on 2 laptops 24/7. When I take my main laptop with me I still have 1 with a 2920xm folding away.

FX chips should be popping up in the FS thread as people pickup Vishera chips (cadaveca has an FX-8150 for sale and he may have a board if you ask him about it). I will be selling either my FX 8120 or the 6100 but I'm waiting on a response from someone I made an offer to first.

hey guys, just a quick question.

I am trying to get a folding farm going and what would be better, a quad socket interlagos or just some dual socket xeon set up.

I cant really find a quad socket xeon motherboards but have found some quad socket AMD motherboards.

I am currently crunching on a i5 2540m (dual core) running at 3.1ghz, and a 2920xm (quad) running stock at 2.9ghz. And on a graphics card, AMD 6990m (desktop 6870 underclocked), I will be upgrading the 6990m to a 7970m (desktop 7870 underclocked) very soon.

And is my average daily points good, I average 7243, but it's increasing so it might get higher.

hey guys, just a quick question.

I am trying to get a folding farm going and what would be better, a quad socket interlagos or just some dual socket xeon set up.

I cant really find a quad socket xeon motherboards but have found some quad socket AMD motherboards.

I am currently crunching on a i5 2540m (dual core) running at 3.1ghz, and a 2920xm (quad) running stock at 2.9ghz. And on a graphics card, AMD 6990m (desktop 6870 underclocked), I will be upgrading the 6990m to a 7970m (desktop 7870 underclocked) very soon.

And is my average daily points good, I average 7243, but it's increasing so it might get higher.
Quad AMD is a good choice with 48 cores (4x12)- will crunch at 25-50k ppd or fold at over 300k ppd

Check Buck Nasty's 4P build log for some extra info ;)

Crunching (WCG) or Folding (Folding@home)?

As far as Folding goes--talk to Buck Nasty, the head of our FAH team. He has two 4P Opteron setups; he gets 400k+ PPD from the overclocked one. As far as WCG goes, I'd suggest neither of those. For now, I'd suggest you build a fleet of i7s with modern ATI GPUs (HD7850s are great PPD/$ ATM). We don't know how much longer the GPU WUs are lasting, but at least you'll have the CPUs if they do run out.

Honestly I wouldn't spend the money upgrading the laptop GPU just for WCG--laptops run brutally hot, and you'll get better PPD for you $$ with desktops ;)

I have been reading that same thread for the past hour now.

I would like to upgrade my laptop cuz it's also my gaming rig. I dont really like desktops anymore. My last desktop build was over 5 years ago, in the early core processors days.

I only do WCG.

I just added another laptop with a 920xm ES running stock 2.2ghz. Other 920xm's overclock to 3.0-3.4 but this ES cpu might be running at higher voltage.

And added a 5870m (underclocked 5770) graphics with my 2 other laptops.
I will only run it for 2 weeks before I sell it.

You're really building up quite the laptop farm there!

How hot are those systems running with both the CPU & GPU crunching? I know that the CPU in my laptop runs at ~80-85C crunching, and that's just a 35w i7-LV with no discrete GPU.

I have 3 laptops going, my first is a sager 8150 and it has 2 fans going on a 2920xm, temp is at 85C on the cpu and 87 on the gpu, 6990m. I just repasted a few weeks ago.

my 2nd laptop is a simple HP 2560p elitebook, i5 2540m at running at 85C, it has 1 single fan.

The 3rd laptop that will only run for a few weeks and being sold is a g73jh running 920xm ES at stock 2.2, and 5870m. The processor runs really hot at stock, runs at 92C and 76C on the gpu.

@Norton let me know if the person don't take your cpu (both of them )
@ThE_MaD_ShOt where are you living ?
Chicken Patty will be getting the FX-8120 from me- he just confirmed it. I will keep an eye out for a couple more for you.... will let you know ASAP if I locate anything. ;)
