Yea we had a box of IOgear Miniview Symphony switches here at work so thats what I am using
We have some at work as well. I'm just busy with so much company stuff lately. We have to help a big client move their whole company's network to a new building. So I'm short on time.
I'm gonna be ordering my waterblock for the 1090T cruncher tonight. Need to get it running again!
Well, for once I've run into a little bit of good luck. One of my co-workers asked me if I wanted their old computer for parts. It was dead and they didn't want to put any money into it. I offered to fix it for her, but she said they'd already bought a new PC and they didn't want or need the old one. Turned out to be a generic (local pc store) 2.5ghz core2 Quad machine ....... with a dead power supply. Replaced two capacitors in the psu and it's up and crunching for me.
Then yesterday on my way to work, I noticed a laptop sitting on top of a garbage can with a sign that said "free if you want it", so I pulled over and picked it up. A nice core2 duo with a dead power unit. Turns out I had a compatable power adapter in my "spare\left over" parts box .... and the laptop came back to life. The touch pad is dead, but an external mouse works just fine. Works just fine for a cruncher once it's set up.
Now if I could only win the lottery ..
If your feeling lucky, you and all the other members should sign up for THIS.
Thanks, I just entered it.

Holy crap Zachary that's some amazing luck!
;...and thanks F150
I just bought myself a 90Gb Corsair SSD today!
I brought the CruncherX2 to work today and hooked it up with a KVM to my main workstation area. So I can check on it during the day with ease.
sorry guys and gals I been busy setting up my new SSD Ièll be back on track soon!
How you like the new SSD?
Today is my 2nd Anniversary crunching with TPU.
Big thank you to everyone in the team, it's been fun!
38 years worth of crunching.
Indeed. Compared to KieX's crunching prowess, FTL neutrinos are old news.
It is awesome!!!
I'd like to find more info on how to optimize it though. I know It came with the latest FW (V 1.3.3) and the random shutdowns stopped as soon as my OS updated to SP1 so all is good.
does anyone have experience with getting the most out of an SSD?
I used a guide similar to this, huge difference!
You got 33, ain't doing bad yourself
17 years here. Not that bad either. That's 17 years of runtime in just under three years.
and by all the powers combined:
Now that my friend, is just nothing short of amazing times 2, times google, times microsoft!
++++++111111 that is just amazing!!!! 1447 years
And ranked #36.......My god team, we are just amazing!!!!
So I followed that guide and it didn't make a huge difference in my read and write speeds....scores in ATTO and Crystalmark improved marginally. I guess I might have had higher expectations...however I do realize that it will maintain those speeds instead of degrading over time from what I read.
Thanks again CP
there is a limit to how much speed you can get out of one ssd on 1 sata port
when i had my 2 corsair force 60gigs, i did around 800mb sec i read and write and that was in raid0
so if you want those insane numbers, you need 2 or more ssd's, and a good controller card then your numbers will explode
