How did you fix it? Did you replace the motherboard?
Did you replace the video card?
You'll get the hang of it in no time.
Since the Rampage 3 Extreme doesn't seem to be going anywhere I've put it to crunch as well. Have a crappy i7 920-C0 on it so I've just let the board OC it to 3.2GHz. Better crunching with low OC than gathering dust.
Had a problem with the retention bracket of the Megahalems having come with the wrong holes but managed to find some washers that let me sort of clamp it down. Prolimatech are actually going to send me another one, which is nice of them.
Time to heat up the room!
EDIT: Seems like everyone is getting new rigs up atm, it's a lovely sight brothers
Not me, but I'm trying to.
Both GPU's working MilkyWay
Should have my Dad's rig up tonight as long as my brother brings over the HDDs he has sitting around.
Great job Randal, keep us posted.
My Sandy is back and at 4.8 Thought I would kill this board but hay all is good.
4.8? Nice. That should give you some more pie to enjoy!
Great job Mike!!
...now... can you pass me your settings please? I have my cruncher at stock clocks and was planning to OC it over the weekend so it would come in handy.
On a tangent...
"Late night, can't sleep discovery": SandyBridge i7 PPD = CPU MHz x 1.285 (eg. 4800MHz x1.285=6168 PPD)
Interesting stuff. Would you think that same calculation can be used for another CPU at all? Probably not heh?
One would hope your CPU isn't running at 4800 hertz. MHz is what you want.
EDIT: And, KieX fixed it.
[Ion] was the keeper of wisdom of all other CPU's
It's late night...
(fixed it, thanks for spotting that)
hmm, thanks though Dan. Interesting indeed. God I'm dying to build new rigs, but my financial situation is not very good at all. My aunt lost her job and my rent more than doubled because of that and because it just randomly increased at where I'm living. So yeah, I'm struggling to keep my whole household running smoothly. But as soon as I have a chance I definitely will.
What happened to Ion?
Last time I chatted with him he had some family/personal issues and he was not able to log on anymore nor fold/crunch. So he was going to be away till things got sorted out for him. Not sure how much longer he'll be gone...
Hopefully not much longer.
Using the software not the new BIOS.. I got lost and mad in the new BIOS.
Sweet crunching OC
Almost 5GHz on a 24/7 cruncher, it ain't even Sweet, it's SWEEEEEET!!!!!!!!
Wanted to thank Mindweaver in this thread for reaching 10,000,000 BOINC points
That is some serious dedication to a serious cause
On another note, I had to add a 2nd pull fan on my Xiggy S1283 to keep my X6 cool at 3.2 GHz, 1.320v. With all three rigs going, things got really hot in my room. (Nothing perverted, you pervs )
Where can I find that version of Ubuntu with WCG already on it? I got a Socket A machine around here I want to put to work...
Are there any stability testing programs for Ubuntu? I intend to overclock the machine, but I want to make sure it's rock-solid stable before I start crunching on it.
