Im on track to have my first 6k day. I thought it would be easy when I upgraded the P9650 to the 965, but I was wrong. Its weird the 965 is almost outproducing the C2Q9550 as of late.

Good day you are having today hammer :)
When I got home I checked and it pulled up just fine. Must have been something at work~
Anyways, I installed Boinc 64bit on my other two i7 rigs last night (thought I did already, but it turns out I didn't). I did install the 64bit version on my new i7 rig when I loaded windows.
Checked the mail when I got home, no psu:wtf:
But I did get the Noctua NF-P12 fan I ordered from Sidewinder:)

x64 is good, I've found that it tends to give ~10% more points than x32 (even though it always tends to claim ~25% more)

I used to get one of the bigger slices of pie when I used to do 3-4k per day. Now you did 11k and barely got some. But if you put thought into it, that's a good thing :toast:

I'm currently trying to save up money (damn home theater :laugh:) for a small crunching farm. If everything pans out I should have the parts by the end of next month.

I'm looking at setting up at least 3 machines. I'm also trying to keep overhead costs fairly low. The machines will boot bartspe off thumbdrives (no hds for cost savings) which will have BOINCpe installed on it. As for the cpus, I'm taking a look at the AMD Phenom X4 9750 since its only 90 bucks on newegg.

Well if it's only going to be used for crunching, then I don't think it will make a difference. I have no idea if the L3 cache even makes a difference or not in WCG.
L3 has a small hit in everything. the athlon II is faster then any 1st gen Phenom

also in crunching MHZ is everything

Ok, so with that said I'm going to get the Athlon II and OC as much as possible on stock volts. Any recommendations on how much RAM I should use for my application?

I'll be sure to keep you guys up to date. I'm also up to any recommendations that anyone has for a cheap motherboard. Thanks to everyone for the advice. :toast:
for AMD, I'll let somebody else advise. Haven't owned one in a while.

I'll be sure to keep you guys up to date. I'm also up to any recommendations that anyone has for a cheap motherboard. Thanks to everyone for the advice. :toast:
Unless you'll be running XP, I advise that you get more than 1GB. With Windows7 on my desktop, it uses ~1.5gb of RAM with BOINC, F@H and nothing else running (except windows background services)

Good luck with the rigs.

BTW, the best PPD/$ is the Athlon II X4 620, 4 cores for $100 is a great deal, especially when you consider that they should OC to 3.5ghz+
