Oh yea, 219 bucks later (service and parts fee) AC is back on! I'm back up 100%!
Man, I'm paying for switching out a motherboard yesterday...points are down quite a bit...
Weird thing happened the other day. My computer (WCG0 in specs) restarted by itself the other night while crunching. When I checked HWMonitor my Vcore was up to 1.20 @ load from 1.18 and my DDR2 was up to 1.9 from 1.89. My idle Vcore is 1.2.
I am pretty sure the restart may have just been Windows Update that I forgot to disable, but whats with the voltages changing? After another reboot the old values are back with only a rare jump to 1.2 and 1.9 for the CPU and RAM, respectively. Anything to worry about?
absolutely not, voltages fluctuate like that. cpu-z says my processor runs at 1.328v under load when I have it set to 1.30v in the BIOS
glad you got it figured out POS. Now lets see you put out some #'s
Picked up RAM today, CPU should be here tomorrow(hopefully) and mobo at the latest monday... my bracket for my xig may not arrive until monday either but at least i have the stock cooler coming so I;ll build my baby!
When my PSU heats up hour after hour, it might up the volts a little
GREASEMONKEY isn't shying away at all, getting some pie already.
Just changed from an x3220 @ 3.4ghz to a q9550 @ 4.0ghz. Didn't expect the difference to be so huge
I haven't been running my i7 for a bit because it has been hot and I sold my S1283, I am waiting for my megahalems to get here. This past 2 weeks it has been over 100F everyday, mostly around 115F I saw 117F once even. It is very hot right now
With WCG, it's all about pure speed.
Unfortunatly(kind of)my crunching will drop off a bit for a week or two.
Just traded 2 of my 939 crunchers off for an ar-15D could'nt resist)
They will be replaced in the next couple weeks with more power though so just a little hitch.
Were the 939's dual or single? Even if they were dual it's not that big of a deal... heh.
is that ar-15 semiautomatic, or do you you get these things illegally unlocked to fullauto in the US?
in my country even a .22 lfb needs a gun pass, every Softair,BB gun, or Paintball-Gun that passes 7.5 joule, is automatically counted as weapon, and therefore will need a gun pass, that you will never get, because you simply dont get weapon passes for extraordinary airguns, except when you pay much money (and a second example, only for authorities), for the weapon to be tested if it can get a special license. is so expensive, it just good for real weapon, or high-tech paintball-markers.
OT: Milestone accomplished! what is the next goal after 20000?
pics of AR-15 please.
VW, your next milestones are 25k, 30k, 40k, then 50k.
One was a 4200x2,the other a 3700 single.They were not putting out large numbers but they were geat little 100% 24/7 crunchers that definitely added up to a good contribution.
It's a semi-auto Bushmaster.The state i live in only allows civillians to have semi-auto,other states have other laws.As pro-gun as i am though,a person really has no need for a full auto.
Okay ~ I just purchased a i7 920. However that is all I could afford right now. Now I need to buy a MB, RAM, PS, GPU, etc...
Really nice gun... do you ship the things to Germany^^?
we have a shortage of assault rifles here...
Niiiiiice. Yeah full auto is kinda crap anyway unless you're very, very close to multiple targets, as you loose accuracy... fast.
i7 is up and running! I dinked around with it yesterday, hits 4.0ghz pretty easily (1.248 in windows) but I won't do anything 24/7 until I get back from my raft trip. I'll leave this baby crunching while I'm gone. 8 projects at once... what a beauty!
Congrats on your new powerhouse Duxx
I don't want to restart computer and stop watching her crunch, but I so want to play around with BIOS.
Heh, your projects take about the same amount of time as mine to complete... of coruse that's going by the estimation it gives you, and we all know how borked that king of thing can get.
congrats dude Yes i7's are great crunchers man. Enjoy it dude
TPU has just gone past 20M points and now ranks in the 76th position!
