I haven't read through all 40+ pages but I was wondering if it loads a computer down too much to do as much as browse the internet? I'd throw this on my laptop if I can still function and check TPU. :D

It runs at a low priority (lowest possible under a given OS) so as a general rule you won't know it's there. However it will raise your cpu temps - just like any cpu intensive application. Laptops tend to be more sensitive to temperature increases than desktops, so keep an eye on it for the first few days.

Also, laptop heatsinks tend to get clogged more quickly and most people don't like popping open a laptop case to clean them out. This is doubly important if your lappy is oc'ed.

Good luck. :)

Well, BOINC made my Core i7 run at 80-85C so I'm going to finish the work it downloaded and stop for the time being. I ordered parts to take care of that temp but they won't arrive until mid/late next week. Once the temps are under control, I'll let BOINC run on here to make use of all the idle clocks. I just hope my computer doesn't explode in the meantime...

Sooooo I started running this and realized that University of Washington kept on popping up. Being my school and all I was quite curious and then realized that the Nutritious Rice for the World grid was sponsored by my school!! How the hell did I never know about this.. Anyways, definitely 100x more interested now and will try and get more people from my school to participate! Thanks for bringing this to my attention everytbody!

I'll be lynched for saying this, but you could always turn down your oc.

If you're not oc'ed and getting those temps - then something is VERY wrong.

It's stock (turbo enabled). From what I'm hearing, 85C is "normal" for a loaded Core i7. :eek:

On the plus side, it appears to be getting through WUs much faster than my server is thanks to the 2.67 GHz clock vs 1.6 GHz.

Seriously? I haven't followed the i7 threads very closely, but I thought they ran much cooler than other 45nm chips.

turbo should only affect one core right? I thought that it didn't do anything for a balanced load.

Might not be a bad idea to disable it and do a mild oc until your new gear arrives. IDK. Just a thought. :)

Actually, i7's run pretty hot. Quite a bit hotter than C2Q 45nm chips. You really need good WC for higher clocks.

Default multiplier is 20. Turbo, with two or more cores loaded changes the multiplier to 21. If only one core is loaded, the multiplier is 22. I have never seen the 22 multiplier so I assume it will only go there if hyperthreading is disabled (which it isn't).

My i7 rig has been running non stop 100% load and I see about 64C load with a 25C ambient and this is with a Mugen2 in an A900 case. I don't want to OC it with those temps.

Looking at a waterblock from fstfrddy now. I'll probably convert it over to LC in the next month depending on other work I need to do.
