I was thinking about doing a 771 to 775 mod soon to see if these lenovo boards I have would work with a 771 CPU. They are G40+ chipset so I am assuming it would work?
Hate to necro an old topic, but you'll likely need something like this as well. I think they swapped a pin or something. Should work otherwise from what I've read. It might be worth just getting a LGA771 board though. They're usually cheaper than their desktop counterparts. I managed to get 8 cores at 3GHz in a HP server for a little under $400.

I kinda skipped past that idea. I now have a mobile I7 4c/8t cpu and 2x4GB SoDimm that I am thinking of picking up a motherboard for.

Threw together a little per-project breakdown for those looking to maximize their output for the challenge. Looks like Say No to Schistosoma (Intermittent) and Mapping Cancer Markers give the best points per runtime. You can change your project preferences here once you log in.
All numbers were pulled from WCG's Project Statistics page.

To me it seemed like MCM would not give a consistent output. One day I would be up, then the next day down. Maybe it was just me though.

Anyone else noticed the FAAH Vina units are all kinds of screwed up once again. Doing the same shit they did before. And we don't have much to fall back on this time.

After switching to MCM, I can't say I'm particularly pleased with the results. Hopefully it's just sorting itself out and I'll see some better results in the future.

While I, thanks to the global WCG stats chart, noticed that points per CPU hour for MCM and FAAH just varies wildly and rapidly. But not CEP2, which just goes steadily for ages.

So I figure there's no real point in trying to chase the best scoring project. Just isn't worth it – the situation changes way too fast.

Hah! Those spikes were from FAAH. The sharp drop at the end is MCM.
While I, thanks to the global WCG stats chart, noticed that points per CPU hour for MCM and FAAH just varies wildly and rapidly. But not CEP2, which just goes steadily for ages. So I figure there's no real point in trying to chase the best scoring project. Just isn't worth it – the situation changes way too fast.
I'm starting to eyeball CEP2. Seems like I got good results there. I took the WU results I was getting for MCM and did a little investigating. MCM looks promising, but the deviation I'm seeing makes me worry a bit. I'll dig around what I was seeing with FAAH and compare later.

Each entry is a completed WU under their respective worker. The number is the PPD that the worker would get had every WU it received be exactly the same. Average and standard deviation are calculated below as well as some bonus statistics about the total performance of each machine.

BLARGH why is newegg being such a b*tch? No matter how hard I try to toss my money at it and shout "shut up and take my money!", it just won't accept payments from outside the US. F***. I'm quite in a pickle here now because of that :(

No because prices would be "regular" then. Could as well shop at caseking/mycom/etc.

I wonder what would happen if some american purchased, but put Kuanas as the shipping destination.
I think h0m3land s3cur1ty regulations prevent that. Someone would need to buy, receive, and reship

If any members disappear without notice...

On a side note, in my WCG evangelical work or more when trying to explain what WCG is, I have been asked how do I know if my compute power isn't helping terr0rists.

Here's a list of forum sections where the researchers (colleges, universities, etc..) discuss the projects we contribute to ;)

I thought Newegg was opening up to the EU now? That would help you out ;)
Nah, they opened up in the UK, that's all. With shipping only in the UK from there. Not to mention the part I need is marked as out of stock for the UK, anyway (I checked for teh lulz).

The situation is simply this: There is a certain computer part which, in the US, costs ~ half of what it costs here. My sister is in the US right now. I would buy from here, she would receive the shipment and would bring it over to here when going home. A great plan to save quite a lot of money.
'cept I can't pay for it from here – I'd need a credit card registered in the US. And I don't have much time to look for solutions as she leaves this week and I still need it to get shipped to her. That's why I am in a pickle...
My dad did think up of one thing and I hope it works out. Otherwise, I'm outta ideas lol.
