Got the 4770k back up and crunching finally after a full week of nothing! About time, eh?
Here's the crack that started my whole charade
And the ill-ordered replacement res
And the unfinishing product. I didn't have time or light to take pics after this step but it's back to normal now
I dropped the 4770k down 100mhz to 4.3. I was getting a random reboot like almost one every day, at random times; it happened after starting the folding on this rig. I'm going to check this out and see if it makes a difference. If so, I'll then take another gander at my OC and try to push it back up tot 4.4 or maybe even try for 4.5, granted will need more voltage and some more tinkering.
Turns out I got nothing from the BETAs. No new points/runtime, and nothing in my results listing either
Beta's don't sit around in your results listing for long... maybe a few days.
I don't think I've ever had any betas so I haz a sad
Have you checked the box to allow them?
In the wcg settings on their site. Is link or post a screen shot but I'm on my phone.
lol, I've checked before, and while I think I selected the correct settings, I'm slightly "tired after a few" so I'll check back tomorrow
Stay thirsty my friend ;-)
Oh, I'm there... I'm trying my hardest to manage what I can do
Wife is calling me to bed so I'm out
go to WCG, click on Beta Testing, make sure boxes are checked, click save
Man, last night I was looking everywhere except there for the Beta options. Then again it was rather late.
Thanks for posting that. Yes, that's checked but still nothing. Strange, maybe I just need to wait more.
Probably just luck of the draw. There were 1300 in the last batch, and I think I got four.
I tried disconnecting everything that is not apart of the main board. I literally took the mainboard out of the case and am powering it on top of a cardboard box. Still though, no signal on video. Double checked nothing looks bad, bent, or broken on the motherboard and see nothing. I have reattached everything one at a time in order of essentialness to see if I get picture, and no signal. At this point I think I should just keep the hdd and recycle the rest.
Pull the A8, If it is dead, please send it to me.
I am dreaming up an Art project of dead and fried and old CPU's.
BTW, if anyone wants to, I am collecting them. I can't say what the project is, but I think it is unique. I have done some web searches and have not found anything like what I am imagining.
An Original thought? How unlikely, right?
Anyways, PM me with your old, dead, fried or favorite unused CPU's.
I would love a pile like this^ to get started. And no, I am not thinking of melting the gold off and selling it.
The a8 is soldered. You can buy like 50 old dead c2d for like $15 btw.
I am hoping for a variety, not all the same, and would like them to be donated. I am, at this point, unwilling to part with cash until I can run through some R&D first. Which could mean, just a thought, the people donating may get one of theirs back, as Art, or a BETA of the finished Art...
I collect CPUs. Just because I like 'em. I've got quite a bit of a collection by now.
The oldest one I've got is an early Intel 286, dated 1982 (the year they were introduced). The second-oldest I've got is a Zilog Z80, timestamped with 9th week of 1989. So these two are older than I am. (I was born in 1989-12-20)
Got my normal number of systems going again, but with some changes. I have the 2500k, g1620 celeron, my c2d 6300, and my remote a10-5800k, I have my useless remote i5-530 that gets ~50ppd, and my soon to be here quad core athlon. The x79 rig is being broken down. I am going all air for awhile as I don't have time to mess with watercooling for a few months. My gpu situation is still up in the air. Need to overclock the c2d 6300, and once received the athlon. Then hopefully I will be set for a few months till things slow down.
That little a10-laptop is really dead. The hdd wont show up at all in windows or linux. Sigh.
Haha, I've been trying to get my hands on old CPUs too; what are you doing with yours?
I will not be crunching or anything for a while probly; I got home today and my rig was off, started it and it shut down with CPU fan error. The pump isn't starting; I tried connecting it directly to a different power supply even, and nothing. Idk why it would fail, its not very old
