Naw I do that almost on a daily basis. Perfectly fine
LOL!! For some reason this comes to mind:
"Welcome everyone to Cruncher's Anonymous. My name is Shaun"
Got my 200k a day ago! Wish I still had that GTS. I miss folding too.
congrats Shaun, I want to start folding but the heat is kickin my ass. I might just give it a shot when I get my i7 rig going and see how it goes
what card will you be using for folding CP?
Probably my 2900xt to start off. Won't be much but it'll get me going
+1 I highly agree with that. When i first started crunching i only had a X2 firstname.lastname@example.org crunching for the team then i started adding and adding then downsized but still just as much crunching power
What started as only a X2 ended up going to a email@example.com,X4 9500,E1500@3ghz,X2 firstname.lastname@example.org,P4HT@3ghz,email@example.com
as you can see it gets addicting easy...
Way addicting, I started with just a Pentium M laptop, and now I have a Core 2 Duo, a Core 2 Quad, a Phenom II X4, and various single cores all crunching. And I dream of new WCG rigs to build. At least it's a good thing to get addicted to.
Yep, addicting stuff! Competition is nice
my dream cruncher is a Quad socket F board with 4 X6's and 28gb of ram
I will have to suggest against this. Even a 9600GT, which can be had for ~$50 used, will do substantially better PPD (~3,000 typically), but use 1/2 to 1/3 of the power. Or an 8800GT/9800GT, which will do over 5.5k PPD on good WUs when OCed, and runs far cooler than the 2900XT. The 2900XT would really be the work choice to start off with if you are worried about heat/power consumption
Well I know, but it's what I got now. If I can take the heat from that then no worries. Also just by starting to fold I'll have some motivation to upgrade whih is what I need
Looks like a new project announced today, phase 2 of Discovering Dengue Drugs Together. Read the announcement here: http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/about_us/viewNewsArticle.do?articleId=121

Ooh, a new badge:
I'm switching everything over as we speak, I'll put the Sapphire in RICE on hold until I get at least a ruby in this
I think I have a severe case of badge-obsession
EDIT: I just read the article, I guess I'll leave RICE in the mix so I don't have times with no work to do
well guys selling couple of my crunchers for i7 fund and i wanna check with u guys b4 i make a official FS thread tomorrow, i just finish setting this template so im tired prolly not gonna reply any PM till tomorrow and btw got free stuff for tpu crunchers

Can I BUMP already?????
+1 on the i7 build my good Sir!
think that q6600 is priced a little too high, in denmark where hardware is expensive they go for 100$ used.
other than that it look very good
ehh not really sure how much used q6600 in US so will see how it goes on official FS thread thx for info tho
good luck erazer, the i7 will make your penis larger!
Got Server 2008 and BOINC installed BUT it only runs 8 jobs. The rig has 4 Dual Core CPUs with HT. This server is not going to give me pie. The prediction is 10-12 hours per job. The RAM usage is 26% of 2 GB (slow) RAM and the CPU usage is 100 %. 0.5 % is used for the "modem". Anyone have a clue how to find the HT cores? Run two instances? I'm a total n00b when it comes to servers.
Open up task manager. How many graphs are there? If HT is enabled, there should be 16, otherwise there should be 8. If HT is disabled, go into the BIOS and enable it. Go to the BOINC options and make sure that it is set to use 100% of processors and 100% of CPU time. If this doesn't work, we may be able to work something out via PM/Teamviewer
HT is enabled in BIOS, BOINC set to 100 and 100%. Was before, is now. I "only" have 8 cores in task manager.
Correction - it have 4 GB.
So you only have 8 graphs in Task Manager?
Download CPU-Z (cpuid.com/cpuz.php), open it up, and see how many CPUs it says you have. You should have 4 CPUs, each with 2 cores/4 threads
Yes only 8 graphs. Z-CPU (the 32 bit version since the 64 didn't work!?) are wrong I think. It says it is a socket 604 (603 accoding to my documentation) and that there are 4 processors (ok) each with one core and two threads. It thinks it is a Prestonia, but it is a Xeon MP 2.7 Gallatin according to boot up and documentation.
It is LOUD and a poor performer but cheap so I give a try.
Mine grew and inch after getting my i7 and my e-peen also grew
too bad the GF already can't take all of my penis (must be the black in me)
If you wouldn't mind setting up TeamViewer and then PM'ing me the link, I'll see what I can do for you. It's totally secure, Buck Nasty used it to help someone set up F@H
