    Pretty soon with AMD's new releases next year they'll be cheaper. So just hang on :)

    One thing that is slightly worrying me;

    HWMonitor was reporting the cooling fan RPM's correctly earlier, now it's juggling between 0 and 675,000 lol
    And also, my +3.3v line looks waaay too low, or is it commonly mis-reported?

    I would say mis-reported. Get a multimeter and check it yourself to be sure.

    My old faithful multi-meter died on me last month; it was ooold! Everest says +3.3v is all good, so definite mis-report. Cheers CP

    When you've finished a WU, how big is the completed file that you upload to WCG (I guess it varies, just kinda looking for a rough figure)?

    * The 20-80 upload for Clean Energy excludes me from the project :(

    Same here, thanks theonedub
    The upload sizes of the other projects in general are much less than I thought they would be though.

    You also need to run linux for CE2, that project isn't available for windows yet ;)

    Also, a little late but welcome onboard scaminatrix. I see you're in the UK, so if you need stuff that can help you crunch let me know in case I have anything lying about.

    Thanks KieX, I'll be looking for a better CPU HSF once I get a decent CPU; I'll definately keep you in mind. Cheers mate :toast:

    I'm back

    Got BOINC running again after 2 days down. I guess after a solid year of no issues, my time was due. I had to kill all transfers, reset the project, and BOOM files started flying down the internet to my PC.

    I promise to pay more attention and not wait for my crunching badge to disappear to warn me somethings wrong. :banghead:

    Well that's not so bad....and it's more of a reason to upgrade to a hex ;)
    Software voltage monitoring is frequently wrong, I'd ignore it
    Yeah...something's really wrong w/ it lately :eek:hwell
    My experience is that upload is almost always right at 22mb...which does take some time to upload, but IMO it's not so bad
    It's a shame, as it means only my laptop can do it. It's going to take a very long time to get badges w/ a max of 2 days of runtime a day for it :ohwell:
    Glad it's working again! :rockout:
    How did it break?

    Sorry to hear that :ohwell:

    But having a nice smartphone is great :)

    dropped it face down on a hardwood floor and broke the screen :shadedshu
    looking at getting a smartphone with windows mobile, its some kind of HTC professional phone or a Palm Pre plus possibly a Samsung i910

    Windows Mobile 6.x is terrible, my parents have had WinMo6 phones and despised them. WinMo7 is looking good, as is Android.

    Sorry that happened w/ your phone, I've been lucky enough that I haven't even dropped it yet

    Maybe not such a good choice then :ohwell:

    I love my Droid and wouldn't swap it for any non-Android phone, but I guess that's why the major vendors make a variety of phones. Everyone but Apple seems to have realized that one size doesn't fit all

    i like the windows based phones but mostly the 7 based ones. I really like them. But if i could get a really good deal on a 6.x i would get it (by good deal i mean $50-100)

    I wouldn't pay over $50 for one, but that's my choice. I hope whatever you get works out for you :toast:
