    Cheers, all seems good; 48 max on NB and 56 max on CPU. The Raven 2 helps the temps a lot, everything idles in the 30's.
    Given one notch on the NB and it seems fine :)

    I would stop there as far as the CPU is concerned. :toast:

    I dumped about 100 WUs from the i7, I finally got it to upload. Reinstalled BOINC and all was good :)

    I'm going to talk to the school IT guy tomorrow, if all goes well, I'll be able to start rolling out WCG on the 30 C2Ds in the comp lab. Not all right away OFC, but maybe half a dozen for now. IIRC they're on ~10 hours a day :toast:

    I don't know yet if he'll let me, he just said it was a possibility ;)

    But 30 of those even @ ~300 PPD each would still be a force to be reckoned with :D

    Yea it's just the cold-boot issues I need to sort now, takes 2 boots to get into Windows.

    :eek: All going to be under team TPU? That'd be nice lol

    I just added 24 2ghz Pentium Dual Cores :rockout: :toast:

    I have some pictures of all 20 that I'll upload when I get home (need cable for my phone).

    Lab Admin was extremely supportive of this, said that it was a cool project. He's said I can have 'em run for the next week or two, if things are going poorly after that, then I may have to scale back, but he said that it was cool and that he would support me :)

    Oh, and they're at 100% CPU usage 24/7. The few students using the computers ATM said that it doesn't change the usability at all. ~13.7k PPD! :eek: :toast:

    Thank you both :D

    I'm really looking forward to this, within a few days the WUs should be coming in in full force, so I should be able to do in the range of 15-20k PPD (let's assume ~11-12k from the farm, although it can in theory do ~14k, then easily another 4-5k from the other setups I have going) :roll:

    I forsee no troubles getting pie again as long as I have these going :cool:

    Maybe do bigadv on your i7 sometimes and WCG sometimes?

    I think I *may* finally be able to eliminate Mike as a threat....that would be awesome :D

    You definitely shouldn't have an issue getting lie ION :)

    Mike is on a rampage but best of luck fighting him of. I just rolled over :laugh:

    Running -bigadv/SMP now but will run one for WGC (i7-920) and one for the nice bonus points (W3670) starting in a few days. Got my visa for Iran and will be going there soon.

    Sorry about the quality, but here are the 24 newest additions:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    All Lenovos with 2GHZ PentDualCores running a slimmed-down XP x86. Untouched over the weekends and ~4PM-8AM daily :toast:
    When they're used, it's just for internet browsing and word processing, so they rarely see over a 15% CPU usage.


    I set 'em all up at lunch when very few other people were using them....it's a bit of a pain to set up BOINC on 24 individual computers in 50 minutes :shadedshu

    EDIT: All 24 represented in my device manager :D

    I've been told if I can figure out how to do a service install on Macs, I also have access to about a dozen Intel Macs :)

    :eek::respect: Nice farm you're getting there. mjmike is on a rampage, but looks like you're going to start your own little one :laugh:

    On my sister's macbook once installed it automatically started at boot up and was hidden away from view (well did have a tray icon). No idea about running it as a service, but at least it will be inconspicous.

    These computers spend 16+ hours a day with no one logged in. So I'd really like it to run when people aren't logged in....otherwise, not a lot of point :ohwell:

    I figure about 30 systems should be enough to hold off Mike...15k PPD should be pretty easy w/ everything going, potentially a good bit more (especially w/ the Macs)

    If I remember correctly it should still run with other people logged in. The only thing is that anyone who isn't the installer will get an error message if they try to run the Manager. But think it still runs. Gonna go look this up.

    EDIT: Think you'll find this page useful: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Tools_for_Mac_OS_X

    Oh man, that's awesome. If only I was allowed to bring the 41 Core 2 Duo E8400s in my office online. :(

    That would be this much PPD per day
