Damn, I may have to throw one together too. There are some amazing DDR3 deals on the forums lately.
Is this a bandwagon? A movement? Can I join?

Actually, I thinking of putting one together in the coming month.
long drive + $$$ =



RAM arrives Monday :D Now off to watch the Sacramento Kings game I had to record!

I may get even ANOTHER gtx 260 for shits and gigles, but ATM i only got 60 bucks in my paypal, and trying to sell some things.

I dont know if its worth it going to grab another 100 dollar motherboard, and a new PSU to power 3 260's then at the same time not being able to run high FSB because of shit nvidia boards

EDIT**** I COULD HAVE TRIP SLI ON another motherboard, thats good :D

I have this following hardware to sell to fellow TPU folders.
e5200
LGA 775 pent 4 530 3.0Ghz+
Wireless network card
530watt Semi modular Raidmax PSU,(power my 260 and a 8800gt once.)
2x 40gb IDE hardrives
CD drive
3800+ 939 venice core
2x256mb of DDR memory
TX3 heatsink, with only am2/am2+/am3 brackets.
120/80mm fans
Old Xigmatek s1283 darknight in somewhat bad condition(missparts and lapped a little wrong but can still cool) With only lga 775/lga 1366 brackets, for like 15 bucks.

If you want to help the TPU team get the better of closest team, you guys can really get some rigs going for cheap, PM me if you need any of this stuff, im going to USPS to ship a windows 7 to someone tomarwow

*EDIT* Im selling this stuff pretty cheap, for its performance, not its rareity. The most expensive thing in this list is probable the e5200 tha can bench at 4.5Ghz for 40-35 dollars + shipping.

Im now folding 16,7-16,9 PPD with 2 GTX 260s tuned to the highest stable clocks with 353 packets.

Ive already hit 21,000 pionts, from 10,000 yesterday. I love nvidia cards.

im up 12k points in 2 days with 6 hrs downtime due to errors eitherway its time we do some recruiting everyone on TPU needs to fold just 1 unit a day ;) seriously TPU gets thousands of hits theres lots of ppl on here if i can even with only $8 left to my name force 2 5850s which are seriously shitty in terms of PPD / watts to fold 24/7 for 5 days and off and on after i think other ppl can help contribute as well. its not that hard even using the tray client and letting it run at just 20% would contribute to the team and you would never know

come on ppl its time to start buckling down we have PS3s and family computers mothers fathers grand parents and sibling they got computers make them chip in just 20% of the cpus power they can keep on doing what they do and help cure cancer its time we NUT UP and put up a better fight the CANUCKS are out stripping us but 400k ppd every 24hours its time we wake up TPU and fight back :toast:

Yeah these -bigadv units seem to be very tempting :D

Just a small question to those already running them, what kind of hardware you using for them ?
Whats the best bet X58 and i7 920, or P55 i7 860.

I'm going with a high-end 1156 mobo(3x pci-e) and the 860. The 8gb of ram I will need is going to kill me.

I've already downloaded the software that bogmali pointed to HERE. I've read the guide and it seems pretty straight forward. The only question I currently have is whether to run 7 or 8 cores. I'm running a GTX 260 now and would want to keep it. The creator of the guide says he is now running 7 cores.

The guide does point out that the minimum memory to run the VM is 6GB and anything less will cause headaches for you or problems.

I intend to re-organise my folding/crunching rigs over the next couple of months and may throw one of these i7 rigs together.
Just bought a second K9A2 board for my GPU's yesterday, so going to retire my old SKT939 rigs.

Trying to keep it as cheap as possible, was wondering would this board give a good OC with a 920, a Gigabyte EX58-UD3R (I know it is bottom end)

I have one of those motherboards with a 920 C0 that is air cooled. I was considering making that my second -bigadv rig.

My first attempt however will be with an Asus P6T Deluxe, Core i7 965, Corsair Dominator 6GB DDR3 2000MHz 7-8-7-20 Triple Channel Kit and water cooled. Hopefully this will be running by the end of the week.

The UD3R is the best budget board out there in my opinion. I have 2 of them both crunching at 4ghz. I have never been able to get above 215-217 bclk with them though, so if you want higher you'll have to get a higher end board.

If you're going to run the VM package to co-exist with GPU's folding in the same rig it is best to do the 7 core one. This way you can dedicate the last CPU core to your GPU's and your system doesn't get bogged down. 1156's are fine (hyperthread versioned ones) as long as you have 6GB of RAM minimum and I wouldn't recommend your OC below 3.5Ghz. The guide that I posted says 3.8 but I've ran mine @ 3.5 and it still gets it done and collect the bonus. Remember the key here is your OC.....It has to be stable (I cannot stress this enough).....;)

I was reading in another forum on TPU that you can get higher stable overclocks with an i920. The common wisdom says maximum stable overclock on an I860 is 3.8 GHZ, while an I920 can more easily run at 4. Also, there've been problems overclocking the 1156 boards with more than 2 sticks of RAM. This limits your choice of RAM with the 1156, and makes it more expensive.

My wallet says, get a the cheapest x58 board that offers stable overclocks, and carefully choose from the plethora of 6 GB DR3 RAM kits available. My inner Tim Gunn says get the ASUS Sabertooth (love the color scheme) with the I860 (same price as an I920 at Microcenter) and get 2X4 GB from Gskill or Mushkin.

Luckily, I have you guys to light the way for me, because it will be sometime next month before I corral the $$$ to jump on the --bigadv bandwagon. I'm hoping one of you has good luck with a I860. I'll be watching your progress eagerly while I roll up my nickels.;)

Yeah if I can get this rig together cheaply, I would be more than happy with a stable 4GHz.

It is very tempting as most other boards are ~£60 dearer, and that would get me a water block as I have a triple RAD sitting doing nothing.

Will have to think about this....

Can you guys recommend anyparts, for a i7-i5 setup to replace my q9550 p45 ddr2 setup.

Im going to be selling many items, Already sold windows 7, a corsair 120mm fan, and some ddr memory, and hopefully my e5200 pentium. Im going to hopefully have 95-100 dollars already, and i might post even more hardware to sell and such. I dont think i can get this setup with 200 bucks even if i was lucky haahahaha. But it would be nice to see how much money i can get for all this.

I've had good luck with the UD3R boards in the past. My P-35 was stable as a rock and support overclocks as high as the P-35 chipset could go. The P-45 version was also easy to overclock and very stable.

Can you guys recommend anyparts, for a i7-i5 setup to replace my q9550 p45 ddr2 setup.

Im going to be selling many items, Already sold windows 7, a corsair 120mm fan, and some ddr memory, and hopefully my e5200 pentium. Im going to hopefully have 95-100 dollars already, and i might post even more hardware to sell and such. I dont think i can get this setup with 200 bucks even if i was lucky haahahaha. But it would be nice to see how much money i can get for all this.

There was this going on........

i5 750 right now is the best bang for the buck, only drawback is the lack of hyperthreading.

If you're going to run the VM package to co-exist with GPU's folding in the same rig it is best to do the 7 core one. This way you can dedicate the last CPU core to your GPU's and your system doesn't get bogged down. 1156's are fine (hyperthread versioned ones) as long as you have 6GB of RAM minimum and I wouldn't recommend your OC below 3.5Ghz. The guide that I posted says 3.8 but I've ran mine @ 3.5 and it still gets it done and collect the bonus. Remember the key here is your OC.....It has to be stable (I cannot stress this enough).....;)
I'm running 3.6 on a 920 and getting approx 38.00 TPF so thats no problem. I am running two GTX 285s with the -smp 8 too and have had no issues.

I looked into a 1156 based bigadv rig, and figured that the 8GB of ram needed on that platform made it too expensive. At the time I priced it out, and the 920 and ram was cheaper for the X58 platform. The mobo was more expensive on the X58 though, but not by much. I went with a mature X58 system instead and have not looked back since. Running 6GB of ram on it, and an OC to 4.0GHZ on water. TPF is 31:00-32:00.

I would go with an X58 rig.

Hmmnn, 3.6 on -smp 8 and you're only getting 38.00 TPF:confused: I'm running mine @ 3.5 Chris and I get between 35.00-36.00 TPF and my other rig is at 3.8 and I get 34.00 TPF. I'm running the 7 core ones.

Running 6GB of ram on it, and an OC to 4.0GHZ on water. TPF is 31:00-32:00. I would go with an X58 rig.
This is the "optimal" setting if you can achieve this clock and keep it stable (which for a 920 D0 stepping is very doable).

That is my main rig. At any given time, the rig is also folding two GTX 285s, running various apps, recording television, etc.
