Weird extraction of a rar the lime left is increasing instead of decreasing
I feel like I have a supercomputer with this chip... it's like my CPU is bored. Nothing I do can use its full potential, other than WCG. Streaming games with Procaster used to require me setting procaster to a shitty low output res like 512x288 and 600bitrate... and 100% loaded my processor, a dual core phenom II. Now I play a game and stream at 1024x768 with 1000 bitrate out and my cpu load hovers around 40%. Temps are down too... I tightened the screws down on my h70 as far as they would go and lowered cpu voltage to 1.1v, and now my WCG load temps hang around between 60c like it is now, or 70c during hot days.
How did you manage to do that 920 is not a unlocked chip?
Glad you are liking the chip hat. I had some fun with my 920 as well back when I had it.
humph, I guess you guys can play PS2 Games on pc better then me!
I get 25fps avg you guys will get 50+
Looks like WCG Server is down again.
Cannot upload any tasks
Does any of you have the same problem?
Looks like no one is on this thread.
Let's see CP-no, Norton-no, ca-no
so no one here exept me
Same problem here on all rigs.
AC went out AGAIN in my house so all crunchers have yet to be restarted since coming home from vacation. I will just crunch the 2600K at work for now.
x58 is pre-"intel locked bclk" overclocking.
Yep CP is right, one of the best setting is 21x191 = 4011mhz! set that then 1.3V and check for stability, if so then lower Vcore until unstable. Also set all voltages manually to there defaults and leave non on auto.
Damn Brandon, that's terrible luck man.
I remember my 920. . 4732 MHz on air. That thing was golden...
I meant for a fast 4ghz clock
Mine would do 4.3ghz 1.3V on air when I had it.
No I know, but it just brought me memories. I think 4.7 GhZ took like >1.4v. I have screenshots at home.
Yep it looks like Freedc and Wcg are still having issues. Seems more so on the freedc end of things.
Well I'm assuming that if WCG is down, Free DC can't update neither? Or does it get the points and stuff from somewhere else?
FreeDC, WCG.org, and the WCG WU upload server are working for me.
Free DC was working for me earlier just wasn't disputing any updated stats.
Maybe you're right. Today points is still 0 at Free-dc, so they're not updating because WCG is down/not updating.
EDIT : Just finish checking (updating projects), WCG project server is up and running, no message about shut down for maintenance again. Maybe free-dc will start updating their stats after this.
Well for me WCG is working just uploaded a task but Free-dc's stats are old as it should be it will be updated at 00:00 UTC
My PSU seemed to have started clicking under operation... *Sigh* Guess I have to send it somewhere for service or replacement. :S
Too bad to hear. Hope you can get it fixed soon.
When it comes to PSU's I always opt in for the direct replacement option for $15 at the computer store. It's a drag to have to wait for RMA's when you have no spares kicking around.
Well all crunchers are back online. Will try to OC the I7-920 when I get a chance but now its running stock.
Brandon buddy, I feel your pain with the a/c. Mine went out just before I walked in the door tonight from work. Now I have just about a complete unit for spare parts. The part thats bad is the fan capacitor for the inside unit. Of all the spare crap I have for a/c's laying around, I don't have one of those. Thats one of those F*ck me running deals. I rob one from an old 110 window unit which is just barely enough to run the fan. I will get a couple tomorrow. It's running now but I don't expect it to run long.
Mine did that last year... a spare capacitor is now sitting in the garage ready to go just in case
A couple of box fans blowing on the condenser is a decent ghetto mod to get cool air in a pinch
My blower fan for the inside unit is the one that went out. The outside (condenser ) unit is good. That why it no blow air in house.
Anyone heard from stinger608?
He hasn't posted since 7/20... hope he's OK
