Keep us updated. I've seen those cpu's clock like a beast!

 

I'm guessing by the title of the thread that this is going to be a folding rig. Awesomeness! :nod:

yes sir it will be! I have all the confidence you guys will have me folding in no time.

 

What kind of time frame do you have to fold? For example, can you fold 24/7 or just parts of the day or parts of the week? Knowing information like this can better help us recommend you the type of [email protected] client to run. :)

 

Also, when you get your highest stable overclock and if you are going to be running [email protected], I suggest running Orthos for longer than just the 8 hrs for the OCDB entry and hell, while you're running Orthos you can go ahead and make an OCDB entry! :P

it will be used for 24/7 folding, I installed xp pro but I do have windows xp x64 if that would be better

 

If this is a dedicated folding rig and you aren't going to be doing anything else on it the most efficient client is native Linux SMP. However, if you need Windows you might want to think about running Linus SMP through VMware. I wrote up a guide here. This is what most of the people on the forum use at the moment. There is no need for you to install XP x64. :)

awesome great links both of you! Once I get a 12+ hr orthos stable oc on this thing I will follow the guide. Right now just threw 2.5ghz everything stock overnight and it passed no problem. Will be upping throughout the day and will hopefully have a stable OC ready to go tommorow. Thanks again

alright well 2.78ghz was good for 2 hour so I bumped her to 2.89ghz and its been about 30 minutes all stock volts. Will probably see if I can get 4 hours stable and will bump it up again after that. I really like this lanparty board!

 

I am thinking I need to reseat the scythe infinity on this thing though as Im getting 44c load and 35c idle which is warmer than my e6600 at 1.45v or are these things that hot at stock? Smaller die=cooler? 65w? lol

Awesome, are you going to fold with that e6600 too? :drool:

 

Just a word or two of caution. These Folding at Home SMP Work Units are VERY cpu intensive. Orthos stability (depending on how long you run it for) is no complete guarantee of 24/7 [email protected] SMP stability. When you set up the client and run it I suggest that you have it to where you can monitor it every hour or two to make sure things are running okay. :)

that 3600 is usually good for 3G's on stock volts...and 3.1-3.2ghz is doable on a little more...

 

I got a 0652 cpu and will be leaning on mine shortly...I am hoping for 3G's thats all...;)
