    LilCrunchy will be down while I try to figure out why it's so picky with memory.

    It came with 5x1GB PC2-5300R. I understood when it didn't like PC2-5300F, but switching to 5x2GB PC2-5300R apparently gives eight beeps? Doesn't seem to lead back to any reasonable post code.

    I wonder... is there any sort of epilepsy research going on?

    ...mmm.... Folding is somewhat related to epilepsy in the sense that some proteins seem to protect the nervous system from damage during stroke but apart from that, no.



    In other news, we're doing some night time maintenance so I get the opportunity to run the part time crunchers 24/7 for a week. :peace:

    If you want to push some serious traffic to test the link, may I suggest jPerf? Works as a client/server model. Set up one PC as a server, copy settings to a second PC as the client, hit "start". It's what we use at work to test the big links.

    Quick question....

    After reinstalling BOINC last night, it seems that all the MCM WUs I've been getting are really really short runtime WUs. While I didn't notice this before, it's got me thinking, so is this normal for you guys?


    Edit: can't be normal, this isn't good :(

    I'm trying to get my Q6600 stabilized. It seems 3.6GHz in fact wasn't stable... Handbrake encodes would crash it. I'm trying 400x8 now for 3.2GHz... (previously it was 400x9 at 3.6 with 1.425v vcore, now it's 400x8 at 3.2 at 1.35v vcore). I'm wondering if 400FSB is too high for the board... but that seems unlikely, 400 isn't that much. I did pass 100 passes of IBT at 425x8 with NB and CPU VTT raised 2 notches, but now they're at default levels for 400.

    It might take some time but I'm trying 100 passes at current settings and if it goes through I'll try a handbrake project and see if it survives. Once I'm sure it's stable I'll fire up WCG again.

    Well I survived 100 passes of IBT... on to a handbrake project!

    I want to be sure it's stable. The time is drawing near... 100 passes of IBT didn't crash it and Handbrake has been running a while without fail so I think it's gonna be good to go.

    This makes me think though... if it can handle 400x8 then probably the motherboard isn't at fault for 3.6GHz failing. Maybe it just needs more than 1.425v vcore for 3.6GHz... maybe I got a crappy Q6600? Although it is a G0, it's 1.3125 vid, which seems on the high side... oh well, I suppose 3.2GHz is fine for now, at least I got to stay at 400FSB... a 1600MHz QDR FSB link isn't that slow...

    Hey guys, long time no see. Anyways been super busy with work stuff, and recently acquired a Supermicro H8QME-2+ motherboard with 4GB ram and 4 dual core Opteron CPUs. I have plans of building it up with six core CPUs and more RAM, and setting it up to crunch. I need to find a different case and heatsink's for it, as it's currently in a 1u case and is louder than sin.

    Should be fun to mess around with. :D

    Edit - I'm in need of a ATX style power supply with two 8 pin CPU plugs, anyone have recommendations?

    Good to see you back!!

    I believe this to be a decent price and should(?) be enough for your needs.

    Amazon can't beat that price...http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...ld-keywords=Corsair ATX 860 psu&tag=tec06d-20

    At the Coffee Shop? LOL, I would either fry the perilously taped together network, or get banned for stealing everyone's bandwidth.

    Hmmm, nope. Neither of those two scenarios benefit me.:laugh:

    Up and running again with my Q6600 sitting at 3.2GHz. It passed IBT and Handbrake didn't crash it so I suppose that's stable.

    My LEPA G900 that I've had for two years has dual EPS 8 pin connectors, used them both when I had an EVGA P55 FTW motherboard for several months. They seem to be obsolete though and there are probably better alternatives now anyway.

    About 2 hours ago, I dumped my entire queue, 2.5 days worth.

    4 plus pages of results w/ 9 Pending Validation. Could be a good night for the Arjai! :laugh:

    :lovetpu:

    Plus a few more WU's due to finish before tonight! :toast:

    Hmmm, when does Free-dc update, a couple times a day, right?

    ugh, proprietary form factor. That may be hard to find a case that will work, especially for a reasonable price.
    2-8 pin: Some Enermax and Seasonic have those or that option. (those are just the ones that I happen to know of - not meant to be an exhaustive list)

    The Seasonic S12G 750 is probably the cheapest one you will find with 2x 8pin connectors ($99 atm)

    BBB is correct, the list is pretty small, but they are out there....
