    We already have a thread for badges. Thanks--it means a lot to me to see what I've been able to accomplish over these three years :)

    Wow--twenty-seven years of runtime in just about a year--you're amazing! :respect:

    I got some fresh overclocks on the FX-8's.

    FX-8350 @ 4.4Ghz

    FX-8150 @ 4.0Ghz

    Both are crunching well and running decent on temps- the 8350 is running 5C cooler than the 8150 atm on the same cooler. So far I'm impressed with the improvements AMD made on the Vishera :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys this is the last night of crunching for one of my rigs with a few more ending within the next couple weeks. I have decided to widdle my fleet down to either 2 or 3 rigs. Just to much going on right now that needs my attention. I will still contribute to crunchuing but no where near what I am now. I will be back someday soon. I would have already taken some of the rigs down but I wanted to help the team for the challenge.

    Random question, but i have been looking at the AMD APUs and i was wondering, Can the A10's 7660d(GPU) crunch? If so does anyone have an estimated ppd?

    I have been looking and thinking about getting one of them but i think the extra 4 cores of the FX 8xxx would produce more,unless the APU can crunch and does decent points.

    i7... Finally!

    Wooot!! just bought that i7 860/ Gigabyte board from sneekypeet the other day. I can't wait to get her up and crunching!:toast: This will give me a total of 16 threads, plus whatever my gpu can crank out. I am also going to see if my roommate can crunch his Phenom 965 (as he runs his rig 24/7 anyway) for me as well. I could potentially have up to 22 threads!!:eek: ...and maybe some daily pie ;)

    Well with everybody running their GPU's and kitchen sink, with just that it might be hard. BUT, never give up. :rockout:

    Go to C:\Program Data\BOINC and look for file "cc_config.xml" There should be a line with this: <use_all_gpus>0</use_all_gpus>

    Change it to 1 and restart BOINC.

    EDIT: Just noticed you have it on a different location: D:\Program Data\BOINC

    Stick ubuntu on them. Faster processing times.. and you currently have 64bit HCC and a few other projects with increased points or runtime at the moment like SN2S

    Well, my goal is to sell them--they'll just crunch until then. And Vista will sell better on Craigslist ;)

    Ah, fair do. Thought these were the ones waiting for HDD, so linux came to mind because of the USB stick thing.

    Indeed. I don't know how many USBs I have--I have enough HDDs to run three of them (maybe four)--perhaps the last one can get USB. Maybe the Atom. Not gonna sell it--no case for it :p
