got great news. The E1500 is stable again and running XP 64bit(was 7 64bit) it will be back online shortly(installing drivers and boinc). The 240 is back at 3.6ghz but i had to use Easytune to get it to that speed again (still a no go when try in the bios :wtf:) the P4 is back at running 3.94ghz stable again

*knocks on wood* if all goes well tomorrow i should be at full steam on the WCG side but still 1 GPU short on the folding side:ohwell: i think my day of tweaking,stress testing and fresh installs was long overdue

Awesome, hopefully everything is going to work out for you!
Instabilites are unfortunately a fact of life when Ocing substantially, but still a pain in the ass :banghead:

it is a pain in the ass but well worth it once you get the stability problems worked out.

BTW i forgot how snappy a fresh XP install can be. I been using 7 for so long.

It's pretty impressive, I recently wiped and reinstalled XP Pro on the old laptop for WCG, and it's faster to boot and load apps than even the E6550 rig....but is still beaten by the T400 and rig in specs. I'm tempted to try out XP Pro x64 on the T400, but I doubt that I could find drivers for it, and I have things set up the way I like them :p And Aero is nice :eek:
I don't think that the ~75 PPD extra is really worth it for all of the trouble it would be and the large chance of things not working properly

if things are how you like them and everything is working then don't change anything. The only reason i did is because i was using the same install i used on 3 boards and a few video cards(one of them was ATI the others Nvidia) also i used it on a board with a Via chip set,AMD chipset,Intel chipset and Nvidia chipset. I'm amazed that it even worked

Could you go to Advanced-->Preferences and verify for me that the CPU usage is set to 100%?

Since you have a quad, it should be running 4 tasks at once (depending on how you have BOINC set up, you may have to hit "advanced view" first). After you've done all of this, could you open up Task Manager and verify that the computer is running at 100% across all 4 cores?
Yup! It's doing 4 tasks at once!:) But the processor load fluctuates from 50% to 100% load as indicated by cpu-z and real temp!:)

I mean by task manager and real temp! Sorry for the unintentional 'dumbness'!

Yeah man. Was taking down the transmission from my car from about 8am to 2 or 3pm. Taking it down, open it up, seeing the damage, etc. I'll end up having to replace Input shaft, Input Shaft Gear, and 1st/2nd gear Hub and Sleeve. About $700. Sucks for me :(

Well I actually found everything I need for $418!!!! now Im really going to bed :laugh:

Naw, it's not going to be from Shep bro. Stage I tranny is about $1250 shipped both way s and it don't replace none of the stuff I need.

I found the Input Shaft, Input Shaft gear, the whole 1st/2nd gear assembly and all the needed seals, oil, etc for about $440 shipped from Jacks Transmissions. I might do that soon :)

I'm almost certainly joining WCG for the CPU side of things, so I need a bit of info.
How many PPD can I expect from:
E5200 @ 3.5 GHz, E6400 @ 2.13 GHz ? (Vista)
The Pentium 4 Northwood 2.8 GHz with 512 MB DDR400 (rig 3 in sig)? (XP)
A T4300 2.1 GHz (which will be in my laptop with windows 7).

Oh, and I'll need to run this program pretty much undetected on the E6400, is there a way to install it so that it just sits in the background, using CPU when its not being used and not showing any signs of it existing? (well, it can appear in the "installed programs" list, but thats about it).
Thanks for any info on this! :)

I'm almost certainly joining WCG for the CPU side of things, so I need a bit of info.
How many PPD can I expect from:
E5200 @ 3.5 GHz, E6400 @ 2.13 GHz ? (Vista)
The Pentium 4 Northwood 2.8 GHz with 512 MB DDR400 (rig 3 in sig)? (XP)
A T4300 2.1 GHz (which will be in my laptop with windows 7).

Oh, and I'll need to run this program pretty much undetected on the E6400, is there a way to install it so that it just sits in the background, using CPU when its not being used and not showing any signs of it existing? (well, it can appear in the "installed programs" list, but thats about it).
Thanks for any info on this! :)
I seem to have the semi-official job of estimating PPD for everyone, so here we go:
E5200: ~1000 PPD (as reported by the BOINC manager, BOINCstats.com, and Free-DC), 7000 PPD as reported by worldcommunitygrid.org
E6400: ~600 PPD (BOINC), ~4200 PPD (WCG)
P4 Northwood: ~250 (BOINC), ~1700 (WCG)
T4300: ~600 PPD (BOINC), ~4200 (WCG).

As for WCG on the E6400, there's not really anything you need to do, I have it installed on my parent's rig and it stays running even while my brother is playing video games on the computer, it just automatically backs off CPU usage. I have set up BOINCview to monitor it remotely, and I can see the CPU usage % drop from ~98-99% when the computer is not being used to ~60% across both cores when he is playing a game, but it still runs in the background. Do your folks use Task Manager much, and if so, do you think they would notice the 100% CPU usage and try and do something about it? You could always set it lower, but, if anything, it's possible that it would be more noticeable because the graph in Task Manager would bounce around more. Setting it to a lower CPU usage % tends to assure people more because things aren't always at 100%, but in reality it just gives less PPD and doesn't make it any less noticeable (as it has no noticeable effect on system performance to begin with). I installed WCG on my mom's E6550, and she didn't even notice for the first 2 months, at which point I pointed out that I had set up WCG on it :cool:
So I would say that it is essentially a non-issue for most computers

When I read his post, I immediately thought "Ion would be able to answer this" :D PPD Estimator should be your title!

what do you guys think about this PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151084&Tpk=Seasonic S12d 750
It's price couldn't be anymore perfect (i will have $100 not a penny more to spend on a PSU)

Should it be fine to run a
X2 240@3.6ghz(or higher)
2 8800GT's both overclocked

all will run 24/7 crunching/folding

I didn't find it worth starting another thread as i thought you crunchers could advise me and it does have to do with crunching :toast:

Looks like a great PSU IMO, 750w, one of the best PSU manufacturers, 80+ Silver (even if you don't pay for the power, it saves your parents a bit), plenty of PCI-E cables, and very affordable. Go for it! :toast:

My production is low since 2 week on my Q9550. I play a lot (lfd2):eek:
I will add a quad in a few days to stabilize my ppd:toast: (I'll pick up a psu Tuesday)

happy holiday to all crunsher :toast: :toast:
I wish you all health, happiness and money (to build more rig;))
