Nice catch, I overlooked that small detail
I'll try but then i also have a newegg gift card. Im thinking i need get some ram get this running stable folding and then save up for a new bigger psu later. Then after that get a much better mobo then upgrade gpu's when all the prices drop even greater
I say go for it, 80 dollars is quite cheap, and if it works it's an amazing deal.
Yep, just paid for it and he's already got it shipped out USPS priority. CPU should be here tomorrow and opening gifts saturday so hopefully ram will go out on monday from newegg
Congrats, hope it works out, and no parts are DOA (I hate that!).
Only stuff that would be DOA would be the RAM hopefully. Was guranteed cpu and mobo work so it's just new ram coming from the egg.
Fair enough, but never underestimate the USPS's ability to muck up your stuff.
Yeah definitely. Only thing coming usps is mobo. Ram and cpu are ups. CPU will be here tomorrow!
Good deal (?)

I'm running two of these. Both OC to 770Mhz core/1700 Mhz memory with very slight overvolting and give about 15k PPD folding.
EDIT: Plus you get a free Mafia 2 coupon which you could probably sell for 30-40ish bucks.
Despite my bank account saying otherwise, I really, really want to get another one...
Optical drive and power supply are here too. Now, I'm only waiting up on the RAM. Twilyth shipped it two days ago, and there's one stick from newegg that should be here by tomorrow too. Sweetness!
Sweet man! What a great xmas present! My 920 should be here tomorrow also!
Just got a GTX 275 co-op physx addition card off ebay, the one with an onboard GTS 250. With some slight overclocking should get about 16k PPD. Hopefully it'll overclock better than I'm expecting though and put up some better numbers still all for only $117 total.
Nice. That card will feed you pie
Good buy. Mine does 15k ppd with only the 275 slightly oc'd.
Hmm i should pick up one of those cards. 15k ppd on gpu2 client would be nice. And for $117 bucks u can't beat that. I prefer gpu2 over gpu3. Their alot more reliable and i don't really care about dx11 for gaming cards.
I'm back with some news about my P55 i7-870 GENE.
This what it looks like now. That excess tubing is because I had the radiator in a different position and didn't feel like shorting it right now.
It looks like 3700 MHz is going to be my max for now. Running LinX the cores are getting into the 80sC.
I decided to only run the smp A3 to see if would crash and burn. The folding client isn't as stressful as LinX.
Tomorrow I'll probably run a bigadv WU on this rig to see if it can go the distance.
Those temps seem quite high.
Looking good msgclb.your PPD should increase a bunch. What board do you have it on? My i7 870 is on a MSI board, I got it running 4.0GHZ stable. running SMP -bigadv it put's out on average around 32,000 and with 2 MSI GTX460's Hawks, total for that rig is close to 54,000 PPD. Got an H70 on the cpu keeping it a cool 55C. Keep up the good work and our PPD for the team should keep going up in 2011.
Got one more 480 coming and I'm thinking about picking up another 480 from Fit's
msgclb, I would drop the multi back to 20 and go for 190Bclk. Don't forget to drop the ram divider and bump up the Vtt.
My PPD took a big hit the last couple of days. They shut power off to the server room to install a new backup generator. I finally got everything back up and running again.
I'll try that tomorrow. Thanks.
I was looking for an ASRock P55 Extreme but they were out of stock but then I saw an ASUS Maximus III GENE P55 on sale for $99 so I took it. Now I wished that I had waited for the Extreme to come back in stock. Maybe with some fine tuning it will turn out alright.
It should the ASUS GENE is a good board. Do what Buck suggested and see if that makes a difference. Temps are a little high, but with some fine tuning maybe you can drop the volts a little.
Edit: had my surgery on Tuesday so I will be in a cast and on crutches for the next 6 to 8 weeks. Good thing is they gave me some good drugs. So I FEEL NO PAIN...
