will do. Gnight bro
night dude. night TPU!
Thanks! Can you show some pics?
Megashadow or Megahalem? I hear that the Megashadow just looks better and doesn't really cool any better? True bro?
I was curious about the different averages I would have for the 4 different rigs I have crunching. So here they are:
i7 Main rig (In System Specs):
13 day average = 4,340
13 day average = 4,268
14 day average = 4,476
8 day average = 2,112
I think it's supposed to cool slightly better due to some coating it has. I have the megashadow. The megahalem should also come with clips for push and pull.
It's a different color and it comes with a second set of fan clips. That's the only thing I could see different. I've got Mega's and my buddy has a Shadow, and the both seem to keep these i7 chips at about the same temps.
This is the difference I was talking about, but it has nothing to do with temps. I was confused for some reason
Black nickel plated to preserve top quality.
Yeah. honestly, the nickel plating looks really nice, and after you buy an extra set of fan clips for the Mega, the price b/t the 2 is minimal.
Only reason I got the shadow was for my build in the Element S case. But I do agree the nickel plating does look great as well.
Just got my two work computers on the crunching band wagon! an athlon 64 3200+ and an amd semptron 2600+
Awesome thanks a lot bro
not much PPD but any bit helps thanks for adding more rigs to the team and the cause.
Well said Tim! Any help is appreciated
How big a drop in PPD will I see going from a 965BE @ stock to a Athlon X4 630 @ stock?
too lazy to look them up. What are the stock speeds?
2.8 for the Athlon and 3.4 for the 965
i would be willing to say about 700ppd
around that seems right. Give or Take.
nice that someone agrees
I got good news. On Wednesday i should be getting alot of shiz if i have time before i leave for newyears(i know leaving alittle early but want to hang with some friends too) i plan to get another rig setup and the PSUs switched out.. i hope UPS gets here around 12ish like they are good at...but with my luck they won't get here before i leave
Hope they do bro, good luck and keep us posted on the progress
I got home to find my i7 at boot screen. Power outage again.
I placed an order the other day for an Intel Q8400 system to have as a full-time cruncher, but paypal payment seems to have failed (will know tomorrow for sure).
In the event I need to place another order, can someone tell me which of these bundles would give the highest PPD @stock speed for under £250?
Definitely betweent he X4 and the Q8300. The AMD comes at 100 MHz faster. I say since speed is what counts in WCG, maybe the AMD might have a slight edge in PPD.
I'm a little inclined towards the Intels because I have my old TRUE with the 775 fittings, so could have as an open air. What PPD should I expect from them? 900?
