Down for a bit while I relocate my rig back to school.
I talked to my friend, and I'm going to be putting his Q6600 on WCG tomorrow. I'm planning for running it at 3ghz, he said he didn't have a problem with running a mild OC on it. I tested it in the past and it does 3ghz on 1.25v and stays under 50C, so it should get ~1500PPD.
at 3000MHZ you will have 1900PPD
Awesome, thanks! Is this an x64 OS? Just wondering, because x64 gives ~10% higher points, and he's running XP Pro 32-bit. He was considering Vista HP x64 when he built the computer, but I gave him a spare copy of XP Pro, so he decided to stick with it
no it vista x86
He's bringing his computer over tomorrow (he's been having some issues and he wanted help), I'll re-instate the 3ghz OC (it's been running at stock currently) and get BOINC up and running and see what sort of PPD it gets
My phenom 9500 is done with WCG its unstable as hell. have to reinstall the OS almost weekly and all of the work it returns most of them are errors thats what i get for buying a OEM rig. but the price was just so low i couldn't pass it up... now i wish i did.. Maybe i will get a better board and PSU for it someday.
underclocking and severe undervolting? wouldnt bring that at least a little output?
mobo doesn't support underclocking or undervolting because it is a OEM (gateway ) board
can u use k10stat with it?
i also cant undervolt on my foxconn....
i have to use it myself, and i like it much more than AOD

Let's get those numbers back above 1.8 million again!
That's a better direction for our numbers
I am currently in the process of gathering components for another i7 920 (DO) rig; as well as replacing my E8500 with a Xeon 3220
This should help those numbers a bit -
i may give that a try.But a family memeber plans to buy a new PSU for it to help me out
Ion was just telling, sometimes Human Proteome Folding has error issues on some rigs. It's unrelated to the rig's stability. Try unchecking it on your Phenom in your device profiles, and see if it behaves batter.
And check your ram. Most OS corruptions I have dealt with are ram related.
i did that along time ago... I am going to switch the ram to my spare that i have and see if it fixes and get a new PSU (it uses a cheap OEM 300w) and put windows 7 64bit on it sometime.(don't want to mess with the pos)
Awesome! The Xeon 3220 is basically a Q6600, right? If so, 3.2-3.4ghz should be reasonably easy to obtain as long as you can keep it cool, Kentsfield quads run very hot (and apparently draw ~30w more than their Yorkfield equivalents.
We will see how well my Koolance 340 water block will be able to keep it cool~
I am hoping for somewhere between 3.2 and 3.5 GHZ.
That should be easy, I ran my Q6600 at 3ghz for a couple months on the stock cooler on an Asus P5K-E (P35). Temps were reasonable (55c load), but could have been lower. Even my $h1tty MSI P7N SLI Platinum took it to 3.3ghz with a Xigmatek HDT-S1283, so higher shouldn't be hard with a better board. I'm confident I could have gotten mine to at least 3.6ghz on my P5K-E, at 3.3ghz the Q6600 only took 1.32v. The Xeon CPUs are better binned AFAIK, so they should take lower voltages and run cooler
Hopefully I will be able to let you know in a couple days

I'll take the blame, my output was ~4k (WCG) lower today than normal
no i7 today and no C2D neither. Blame me if anything. Just my QX.
I'm having to turn off my Q9550 at nights until my ram comes in from RMA. Then i'm sending this set in as well, but that shouldn't stop me from crunching 24/7 on the Q9550.
i have lost 2 crunchers, the screen of the atom of my mum, died 2 days ago.
my 5000+ x2 is off the net, because my buddy cant steal wlan anymore
he now has to buy himself one first
I know of LAN WAN MAN etc..... whats WLAN? I have networking certs and I am not sure what you are trying to say.
