Sorry, missed off some information, have a couple of accounts, but the main one will not come up , only one that has not been used when I try to add project.

I can log into correct account on web site, using authentication code, using password , logs into the old account ,

any help would be appreciated.

Kevin,
There has been a lot of discussion about this on Number Crunchers, quite a few folks have come up with solutions of various complexity, have a look there and you will probably find the answer (very few of the "real experts" stray from the comfort of that forum...)

Once you log in with the authenticator, you can go to "Your Acount" and look at the email address used to create the account, and set the password. The email is the unique key used for distinguishing accounts.

-Minor issue- Joined Team SETI USA about 3 days ago, and when the screen saver pops up or if I went to show graphics, my credits are showing, but not my team. Does it just take a few days or so to show that...?

Thanks
Chuck

You have not succeeded in joining the team with the account you posted with. It is still showing "Team - none".

Tuning BOINC down to 80% eased my issues with overheating. Would like to install an Antec 620 water cooled system, not sure if its worth all the hassle. A good all copper heat sink would be nice if such a beast exists.

I Opened my case & have a good fan blowing in, and moving my computer to a nearby AC duct has greatly helped. I ran for about 3 hours today at 100%, and hit 147"F max, but 159.8'F is the max safe limit for my AMD II X4 640, and that is close enough. I did have past issues with my machine shutting down over heat, but as long as I am watching it close, and have the AC on, it seems to be ok. I run at 80% if I leave it unattended.

I am getting nothing but ASTROPULSE WUs, at the moment thought I read that those were rare. Gonna take a while to crunch those.

147 seems a bit warm even for stock cooling. Consider new thermal paste or getting a larger HSF. Water cooling seems a bit excessive for that cpu

64C is not that bad for stock cooling at 100%.

I do know some people have had good luck with a desk fan at a distance of 2 or 3" pointed into an open case. One instance I know of, that was the only way to keep the GPU cool.
