    Official 2012 OCC Christmas Contest

    My headset came this week too. I haven't had the time to try them yet, but I will tomorrow. <-- Insert "academy award" style thank-you speech here.

    everything on thumb drive

    I have a computer that I can use to fold when it's not in use, but I cannot install anything on the computer. How do I put everything on a thumb drive so all I have to do is plug it in and run, but when it's in use stop everything and unplug the thumb drive and have nothing left on the computer? The target computer has an I5 2500k processor and a gtx 460 gpu, so I would need SMP and GPU(fermi). I did this a few years ago with the command line client, but would like to do it with the new 7.2.9 client. Thanks, (-: FireFox :-)

    How did you come up with your username?

    I was a big fan of the 1982 Clint Eastwood film and have been using the name FireFox ever since. I add 11 or n11 when needed because my dad called me number 11 when I was a baby.

    My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

    I watch it. It's really well done by Lauren Faust. *brohoof* http://bronies.memebase.com/
  8. There was some work done a few years ago. I had a HD2900pro at the time and was closely watching the tech pages. I haven't heard anything since, however. A quick look turned up this article: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-physx-ati,5764.html

    [email protected] question

    Ok, don't appologise for being newbie. Everyone was a newbie . Having a passkey is a good start. I would suggest you go to http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther and download GPU3 v 6.41 and SMP 2 v 6.34. Make sure you read http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.php?showtopic=179289 as well as the help links for those downloads at stanford.edu. Best of luck, we will help you as much as we can

    [email protected] question

    What clients are you using? What settings are you using for those clients? You should be using GPU3 for your 470gtx and the smp client for your CPU (I think, I've never used an amd proc). You need a passkey to get bonus points with the smp client (after 10 successful returns, if I'm not mistaken).
  14. I'm getting a free xSeries 235 with 2x 2.66 xeon's, and 512mb ecc memory. Can't beat the price, but what will I be able to do with it? Can I use it for folding, web or mail server, or ???
  15. Well, 300 cores with 1000 threads would be 3.333 threads/core and odd numbers don't sound cool. I'll go with 5 THz though, lol. Northrop Grumman, under a contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Terahertz Electronics program, has developed a new Terahertz Monolithic Integrated Circuit that more than doubles the frequency of the previously reported fastest integrated circuit. "The success of the THz Electronics program will lead to revolutionary applications such as THz imaging systems, sub-mm-wave ultra-wideband ultra-high-capacity communication links, and sub-mm-wave single-chip widely tunable synthesizers for explosive detection spectroscopy," said John Albrecht, THz Electronics program manager for DARPA.

    It is the -bigadv switch that requires an overclocked I7. The deadline is 4-days and the points go way down if you miss the deadline. My I7 920 @ 3.5ghz sometimes makes it by an hour or two and sometimes doesn't by an hour or two. I've stopped trying -bigadv units since I got my second gtx 470 and just use -smp 8.
  17. Forget 10GHz I want the 128GHz processor as predicted by Rob and make it 100 cores, 400 threads, 40 watt TDP while they are at it.

    Playing Star trek Online

    I played it since beta until about 2 months ago (when my dad got sick and in/out of the hospital). I thought the game had gained a lot since it's release and was one of the better MMO's out there. FireFox

    XFX Contest

    My current system (I7 920 (cooled by V10) on a Asus P6T deluxe v2, 3x2GB DDR3 1600 ram, 2x GTX 470's SLI, 2x 2TB hard drives in raid1, 1x V-Raptor 150GB hard drive, 1x DVD-ROM, 1x DVD-RW, in a generic tower case) is currently powered by a 3-year old PCP&C silencer 650. I think it's probably time for a p/s upgrade .

    What was your first post on OCC?

    I was a dfi then diy then folded into occ. I was a lurker here the whole time though. :-)
  21. I currently have a gtx 470 on an Asus P6T deluxe V2. After running 3DMark11 I'm a bit disappointed. Would you suggest getting another gtx 470 for sli @ $250.00 or giving my gtx 470 to my dad (upgrading him from a 9800gt) and getting a gtx 570 @ $350.00? My monitor is a Hanns-G 25" 1080p. I would like to get at least 15-20 fps at 1920x1080 in 3DMark11. Thanks

    2x gtx 470 or gtx 570

    I am using a WD VelociRaptor 150mb version. SSD's seem too expensive for the benefit to me. My 470 is running at 1300, 1700 and the max temp I've seen is 71c. With everything maxed out in WoW I have seen as low as 17fps and similar numbers in STO. My monitors native resolution is 1920x1080.
