    Is your rig open or in a closed case? I need to know before I run my tests. PM me better bro, we can post a link to the thread here so peeps can follow.

    Here's a shot at 3.85 with the mega...BOINC is set at 100%. This is with the Mega w/Gentle Typhoons in push/pull on an open tech station.

    I'll go do stock speeds now...

    I do have the side panel off, so I guess you would call it open.

    How about we all use the same tests. Maybe first with BOINC at 100%, then LinX, both at stock then at the BOINC "sweet spot" of 3.8?

    Sounds like a plan. Let's figure out the specifics and give it a go:)

    I'm starting to get very angry, I lost another 6 hours of work on each core of the Q9400 and ~600 points :mad:
    Is there any way to make BOINC resume where progress was lost if the computer is unexpectedly turned off? BOINC remembers the 6 hours of runtime, but not that they were all ~80% done :mad:

    Ouch that hurts! So you are saying that it starts another project from scratch instead of continuing where it stopped?

    And it's happened TWICE today. 12 hours per core down the drain :mad: :cry:
    It doesn't start a new WU, it keeps doing the old one, but starts again at 0%. It's really weird though, it remembers that it had already put 6 hours of time into it

    This is really weird, i don't think mine does that. Or maybe I just never noticed.

    So the Mega ran cooler? He also has it completely open on a tech station which does a bit of a difference.

    If you guys don't mind I would like to compare my lapped TRUE with push/pull fans on an open tech station.

    I just noticed my QX did not do much today, and none today :( It's on, maybe it locked? It's all at default though :confused:

    You need to set up BOINCview so you can monitor all of your rigs more easily ;)
    Maybe there are a lot of WUs from it pending validation?

    I have it hooked up to my monitors, I just touch a button and I see it. But it just locked, so if I saw the fans on and everything to me it was running. I usually check my stats, but i haven't been home much this weekend so it just slipped by.

    Oh. I didn't realize that. Sometimes I forget to check BOINC frequently enough, apparently it's been off for a while now on the E6550 :eek:
    I'm not sure why, it's possible my brother suspended it when he was gaming a couple days ago, but it's fixed now.

    what do you guys think would benefit me most (don't have money to do both) Get a cheap quad (q8400 maybe) and put in the dedicated folding/crunching rig or get a cheap quad for the main rig(it also crunches/folds) check the specs of main rig if needed... But i would get a P II 925 or A II x4 920

    also what would give better PPD a P II 925 or a q8200? Both stock(just for comparison both would be OCed but don't know how high)

    Go for the Q8400, I think you'd see a bigger upgrade going from an X2 and a P4 to an X2 and a quad than from an X2 and a P4 to a PH2 and a P4. At stock, the Q8200 would be a bit slower than the X4 I believe, but when OCing it should equal out.

    I think the PII would be a better upgrade for me because my X2 is kinda old. and to be honest your post confused me
