    Hell yea bow! Once I get that water cooler from you I will have my second 2600K up to 4.5Ghz (Thanks KieX) and we will see some good numbers! I will try to run with the stock cooler for now but I doubt it will hold 4.5ghz on it.

    His rigs are running for the team SeriousCrunchers ATM....

    maybe he's taking a bit of a break from here. The last posts of his that I saw were on General Nonsense over the weekend and they were a little....intense.

    I can't speak for anyone else but I'll welcome him back if/when he decides to return

    When I replace my P55 setup with a P67 board, what drivers do I uninstall before the switch (so I don't have to reinstall Windows- just did that with my SSD)?

    I'm assuming its everything that says P55 and 5 series in device manager:

    Im half tempted not to touch anything and just let Windows figure it out. The last time I did that it worked fine :eek:

    Did the same as well. Worked fine. My win-stall was rather cluttered and reinstalled a few days later anyways.

    I believe he maybe just helping them get started cause their team is quite small. They also have a website as well

    My BOINC install decided to break on my AM2NF3-VSTA machine running XP x86. Basically, it just permanently says "reconnecting to client" and doesn't even acknowledge it is attached to a project. Tried reinstalling it but no dice. I'm now on XP x64 without AGP texture acceleration but I'll just use another one of my machines for web browsing and stuff I suppose. Hopefully this machine will output more (gets 42 GFLOPS vs 29 in x86).

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I had that happen to 2 machines so far. And like you said uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't fix it. One was my xp x86 machine and the other was one of my linux boxes. I played for an hour or so on the xp machine to get it going to no avail. I even tried a system restore. Nothing. finally said the hell with it and killed the hdd and installed Ubuntu.

    Finaly, added a Xeon E3-1200 3.10GHz 8MB, the server came with only one CPU.. but I think this model, when I choosed the free second CPU, can't support as it's a small dell server

    [​IMG]


    Installed BOIN v5 as it's a Domain controller, 6 and later doesn't work :/

    well, 4 thread at 60% more, thought it was HT also :(

    I found a "secondary" location for one of my crunchers. I have a friend who owns a small business who is letting me hook up one of my rigs in his office.

    Free power, AC, net connection, and a secure location :rockout:

    He also runs a fairly good size server so I laid the ground work towards getting him to join WCG and our team :D

    Just pulled the trigger on a refurbished ASUS M5A99X EVO for $89 + shipping from Geeks, as well as some more DDR3 and a refurbished CM Hyper 212+ for $13. After my Crosshair III Formula blew up last week I figured it would be a nice replacement. Going to pull the 955BE out of the AM2NF3 and put it in there.

    Anyone know how well these 990X boards clock on the HTT? Would love to put my 1045T in there and reach ~4GHz/300HT if it blows up my Biostar A780L3B any time soon. I've been stuck with 7xx chipsets too long and they all only do 260-270 HTT and that's it. :(

    Hi Anggoro!
    Answering your question, i can definitely say that a constant connection is not required.
    As for the CPU power, i was confused at first too. But the team told me the remarkable words: "every little bit counts":toast:

    hi Daimus. thanks for the answer.
    i've been interested on this thing for a while, but it's only recently i've got a rig to spare.

    i dont think i'll be able to run it 24/7.
    a day(12 hours) to 20 is reasonable tho.
    that ok?

    In fact, few people have the ability to run the cruncher for more than 12/24, so that's ok. We will be glad if you joined the team. New members are always welcome!

    Every little bit counts as Daimus stated. Some members run their systems part-time and contribute what they can. New members are always welcome and feel free to post here or PM a fellow team member if you have any questions. :)

    Every bit counts, trust me on that. :D Also, you can just set it to download four days of work. So you can connect it to the internet every 3 or so days, let it upload all the work, download more work and that's it. Only thing is your stats are going to be all over the place, but those are just #'s. :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    When I started out I was only crunching about 15 hrs a day on one machine with about 500 ppd. I slowly at first moved up to crunching 24hrs a day. Then something snapped in my head and now I have 5 main crunchers that run 24/7. And 2 that are part time crunchers.

    and getting teased by bouncing in and out of the Top 10 pie :D

    I started with 1 rig running and now I have 3 and am planning for #4 as well as doing what I can, in one small way or another, to help fellow crunchers keep their rigs going :toast:

I'll still have either one crunchin at a time and still be able to pop on here. Keepin the team updated as it may seem my numbers go down a lil or I'm not around. I'll keep ya posted. I'll get pics of my progress and everything going together to share.
