Its going to be 85F here tomorrow, which is the hottest its been in a while. I want to see if the i7 can hold up to 100+F weather later in Summer, so its time for an experiment
I threw a Yate Loon H on the top of my Mega for a quick push pull setup to see how it helps the temps. Hopefully I will get good results and avoid shutting down WCG but on the hottest days
I/the team will be 4500 PPD down until ChimPowerUp has reached the 20 mill. My 40 pending validation WUs will not last long but at least keep me above 2500 PPD for some days with the help of my trusted E8400's.
I've already had one 90F day and several high 80s. My i7 rigs have handled it ok but the heat from the video cards make it unbearable.
I included that line from your signature to ask did you add the ! as a substitute for ?
And quoting mstenholm from the official chimp thread...
I wish we started having days like that!!! As I type this it's 6 degrees celsius outside....brrrrr.
I also got some good news...I talked my roommate into lending me his wdhq Athlon x2 250's idle time to my account We will see more numbers now for sure!!!
As you can see it has already been contributing:
WOW guys I noticed my Xeon 2.8Ghz Dual Processor w/ HT was not returning any work... Out of all of my Rigs.. I forgot to run my Easy WCG Config file on it..lol I've also turned on a few more rigs.. hehehe another atom and an E2160. I'll probably turn on another E7200 tonight. Tomorrow i'm going to find enough spare parts to put together another P4 3.0Ghz /ht. I found 2 old 775 mb in my server room.. hehehe I also, still need to turn on the other E8400 @ 4GHz.. I might do that tonight. I need to blow it out first.. hehehe
Well time to get on the treadmill!
@Paulieg I'm starting to really get back in to a good routine (weight lifting). I might try and work on that program we talked about awhile back. If you would, send me a list of everything you work on. I'm debating on starting fresh with .net or updating an old app I made in VB6. I'm old skool..lol i still write a lot of shit in vb6...lol
Velvet brotha are you going to get an x6 1090T or 1055T? I want one but I'm still really happy with my Q9550.. hehehe
thats the reason i went water on mine. I noticed when i had air cooling when the room would warm up alittle the fan would speed up alot (the noise was unbearable) and even when temps go up in the room the water cooling seems to still handle the heat just fine(alot less of a raise in temps)
you may consider lowering clocks and voltage alittle bit when summer comes to help keep temps lower. crunching at lower clocks is better then not crunching at all
@P O S pc and theonedub and everybody else?
Either of you guys planing to get a AMD x6? Thanks!
no, i dont think i will get one, because my current board doesnt seem to get support for it anytime soon, foxconn are a little lazy regarding adding both of them to their compability lists...
if its compatible, i probably will get me one of both, dependant on the mone i can obtain... but probably i will wait for the magny cours to go desktop, and buy a new board then!
yeah the Q9550 surely packs its punch, i just readied me an Asus Rampage Formula for it, and my D9 dominators!
Very nice brotha! Der Übermäßige Computer!
Yeah! i wasnt able to go past FSB 400 with the MSI Board, and i have like 4-5 kits of HQ Ram to test out! current board is a little flaky, regarding memory clocking and volting, so i got the Rampage, which should be a killer, regarding FSB and Memclocking, if im not wrong.
Kits to test are:
2x1gb dominators v1.6,DDR 1066,2.1v
2x1gb dominators v1.2,DDR 1066,2.2v
2x1gb crucial ballistix,ddr 800, with glued spreaders and 2.0v
2x2gb Geil Ultra (the ones with the massive,orange spreader),ddr1066,2.2-2.4v
2x2gb Gskill Tridents,DDR 1066,1.8v
I have a 1055t crunching for Stan as we speak.
running f8 beta bios on my 790fxt.
only overclocked to 3.6 (will try for more later)
runs at only 37c at full load.
What's your avg points per day? Oh and stock cooler? thanks!
I have a hyper 212 plus with push pull.
just overclocked the other day so average says just over 2000.
if you want to keep an eye on wcg numbers its free-dc id number is 1245009 in the list for Stan.
my i7 930 brings in better numbers but I also like to give AMD support so upgraded old 955 build.
Nice! I was wondering about that x6. If it someones main rig, and if it was crunching 100%. Thanks
The E7200's actually a E2180.. (i think i was just wishing it to be an E7200.. I know I have one here some where.. I'll find it!) lol but I've got it crunching at 100% for Stanhemi!
Technologiekraft nach oben!
Sorry, I'm hyper and posting to much.. Ich werde zurückkehren!
The Terminator has spoken!
lol I'm back!... lol hehehe naw.. i'm going to bed..lol I just hope I fall asleep..lol I'm wired..lol I like Fridays!.. lol and Ice cream.. hehehe
I wish i could but i can't afford it like i hoped i could
WOW how did i miss this?...lol That's a lot of ram! You are rich with ram my friend! That stuff is like gold!! Ram prices are crazy high... I miss cheap ram.. with that much ram you must be rich... your Batman!
What does RAC mean in free-dc?
Recent Average Credit (RAC)
EDIT: The RAC is also based on a whole months average.
Yea I can't afford it either.. but I want one or two.. lol
I think I must overclock i7 930 more, some i7 920 just beat me in stats for Stan.
