keep it up guys
guys, i7 was down for a few hours. Had to take card out and apply some TIM and dust it a bit, was running way too hot inside the case. Furmark load is about 84ºc case closed Much better
I turned Boinc off on my Q9550 while I was playing Modern Warfare 2 and forgot to turn it back on yesterday.. I've added the process to my cc_config.xml file now.. But when I got up today, and checked the stat's and seen my Q9550 points were down.. Then seen it was off and I was like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWaLxFIVX1s&feature=related

Just barely over 2 million!
Haven't chimed in for awhile. Got the electricity bill for our apartment... and it was only 40$!!! Thats for 2 months, with me running 100% on average like 15 hours a day... maybe. 20$/month split between 3 roomates... 7$. I'm back up 24/7 baby!
Time to run 24/7!
The power bill for my apartment mid-September to mid-October was $215 for me and my college roommate in a small 900sf apartment. The effing A/C was broken that month and would run 24/7 to barely cool the apartment. We just got it fixed a few weeks ago and it barely has to run to keep the apartment nice and cool. My complex pays the first $105 of the bill, so my roommate and I have to pay $53 each in overages.
I wasn't even folding or crunching at all.
My power bill was actually down this month and I'm crunching @ 100% strong!.. hehehe
now that i have to pay the electric bill too, i have to get me more hardware,to use my money more!
i really need a quad, or high clocking dual. i have 10 auctions on ebay tomorrow,if im lucky, i can get a quad or e8400 within the range of 50 euro. and i just mailed my dad,he is in the US ATM, in Florida, for one week, and he will be one day in New York (He is Pilot,and flew a Learjet for a "Friend" there... of course for money... so he said, he will bring me a present from there. guess what i wanted?
i told him to visit a local "microcenter".
now my question: will he be sucessful?
how much does these procs cost new there? anyone a clue?
the difference between me and you guys is that i stopped boinc for about 20min to convert some videos so i can play them on my Zune BUT I REMEMBERED TO STAT IT AGAIN
@velvet about $200(us) for dual around $300 for quad... I could be wrong as i haven't looked at prices in along time
LAFF, I have it set to resume after 1hr 30m of "snoozing".
thats what they should have i7´s 920 for.... i heard, they were 250 at microcenter?
i was just told, seemed the place, everone wents,because its so cheap
ok my mistake around $150-$200 for quad about $120-$150 for dual. I really haven't been keeping up with the prices if i'm that far behind
then my output will even get better! if i can grab a q9550,
i will raise my output enomously!
don't worry one day my friend the battle will be on again
the e5200 simply pushed me too high. it outputs about 1200 points on a good day,1000 on a bad day. interesingly, the 939 cruncher, outputs about 800-1000 per day. thats not much less, and its at not even 3ghz (ddr1 in mind,tho good clocked)
Microcenter has Q9550s for $169 (maybe 110 euros, I'm not sure what the exchange rate is), but I was unable to find the Q9400 or Q6600
seems like im getting less points than i was the last time i ran WCG .. the graph also sugegsts the same thing. not sure why.
The reason your scores are lower is because you have to wait for the work units you turn in to validate. Depending on when WUs validate, some days I get as little as 1400 points, but some days I get over 3000. To check how many WUs are "pending validation", go to WCG-->My Grid-->Results Status-->Pending Validation
Of the CPU's mentioned the Q9550 would be by far the best choice anyway.
I run a couple of those and they perform much better and cooler than the Q6600.
Depending on what you can find a deal on if a body can't make the jump to i7 then Q9450, Q9550, or Q9650 is the way to go.
