  1. What do you have your ram settings at? IE: Main timings, voltage, etc. As far as i know that error is usually caused by bad ram. First check all your settings and make sure they are set to the manufacturers recommended settings (the 4 timings and voltage should be on a sticker on the actual module). If they are set correctly for your ram, try both sticks individually to see if the problem persists. If the problem continues with 1 stick, but not the other, then i think you found your problem. You can test to see if they are working via a few hours of memtest (TMOD & Loggan's CD is bootable and has memtest on it) and if memtest passes, you can fire up windows and do a prime95 or Orthos blend to stress the memory within windows.
  2. Not quite, I have 2 machines. My Server, which is native Ubuntu 7.10 64-bit, which I fold 24/7 using the SMP client. My Main is left idle for ~16-18hrs a day so I have it folding via the USB method I posted in the OCC Teams section which requires no OS (but the machine has XP on it). The only thing I somewhat worry about with GPU folding is the power consumption. I have no data to put forth, but would be curious to know what takes more power between GPU2 vs Dual Core (65\45nm) SMP vs Quad (65\45nm)SMP (2 instances). I know my 1900xt is a power sucking beast when running full tilt.
  3. I read those rules after I registered with my Hotmail account, lol. I was quite confused. Maybe they turned it off to help ease the transition and have now re-enabled it?
  4. Chances are no, not legally. What is bundled with PC's are usually OEM copys so they live and die with the machine they are coupled with.
  5. Its a tad over 1500 PPD (typical 2605 or 2653? finishes in ~28hrs.). As for times in vista, I have never used vista and dont plan on shelling out ~$200 when I am more than happy with XP You will have to wait for someone else to chime in on that one.
  6. The GA-P35-DS3L has everything you listed. I have that same setup as my server folding 24/7 (2180 + DS3L) and it does ~16.5mins per % in native linux. Good little folder for the money. That would be my recommendation on that budget. Linkage to DS3L (this is the upgraded model from the one i said. The revision adds the Dynamic Energy Saver.)
  7. Check out this "mod": Linkage (2nd pic) Seems to do wonders though i do not have any personal experience.
  8. I found that a while back when I first got the dualies at work. I did see a couple more funny ones in that wallpaper pack of yours. Gotta see if they are \ I can make them the right size.
  9. Yea, im game for some sins. You should hook up some Rainbow Six Vegas 2 also. Awesome game (if you are into tactical FPS) What time you gonna be around tonight? I'm futzin around the house today, Gettin stuff cleaned up to make space to setup the dual monitors. Cant wait to play some sins at 1920x1200
  10. Yea doc, terrorist hunt with a few of the crew = awesome. If there are only 2 that want to play, you can also do the coop story mode. Only thing i dislike about that is that 1 person (the host) controls 2 AI teammates while the other person controls none. They should have at least split that up. Definetly up for more
  11. Wow, those are beautiful pictures.
  12. I will be when i get home, and i have never had msn, but i suppose i could use the windows one. I have popped in a few times over the past days but must have been odd times cause ive gotten no response. Shortly after, ive retired to the couch to watch the idiot box, lol. 513pm now and im itchin to leave. Should be home ~6:30-7pm You got me scared with the "We" bit....i told you before that i will NOT wear a dress, no exceptions!
  13. Between a Dual and a Quad...well, you're a folder, lol Quad or bust
  14. Is that with the fan speed being automatically adjusted via the driver? Or are you manually setting it via a program like rivatuner? With auto fan speed, my 1900xt got to about those temps (mid 80c on load) because it took way too long for the fan to ramp up. By manually setting the fan speed to 60%, it kept the temps from exceeding 75c on load. As a comparison, the card is now under water and doesnt go over 45c If all else fails and you are going to stick with air, a HR-03GT may be something to look at. I hear really good things about them (as with most\all thermalright HS's)
