I am crunching on a 2.0GHZ macbook core duo and i frequently see CPU temps as high as 90 when crunching, and im even using a cooling pad. I have been letting it do this for several months now and havent had any problems, but it is uncomfortable to use it on my lap without the cooling pad while its crunching

I am running mine at around 65 degrees. I think its a little high but not dangerously so.

i have seen a usb to ethernet adapter, not sure if that would work or set one computer to share the wifi connection to its ethernet port, then plug that into a router and connect anything you want

you should be able to get a router, plug its connection for internet into your family's hub, then you can have all the ports you want on your end of your router

If you want linux you can go to ubuntu's website and they will send you the disc for free. That would be a good place to start if you havent used linux before.

non system disc usually just means that there is nothing on the hard drive. No OS, nothing. Just put in an install disc for windoze or linux restart and it should install

less then $450 if you can borrow a cd-rom for os install and not use a case...plus then you dont have to worry about heat from OC'ing as much

Ok ive been pretty stable at 371 x 9 for over an hour, temps stable at around 56-57 but still jumping down to x 6... The vcore also jumps when it goes to x 6. Goes from 1.392/1.400 to 1.432 or so

im trying out 376 x 9 bios is set to 1.550 vcore but cpu-z is reporting between 1.392-1.408 and temps are just below 60 C

[edit] seems stable but my multiplier still drops to 6 now and then. it was doing that last night a little at a lower overclock when i went to bed, but when i woke up it wasnt, and was still stable, so maybe if it stays at this for a few hours it will stop? any ideas?? [/edit]

[edit2]knocked it down to 374 x 9 still jumps to 6 sometimes in cpu-z but core temp dosent show that...it still says 9 and my temp log for core temp shows 3676 mhz on every line...[/edit2]

It is a dedicated cruncher, so it is always running at 100%. Even tho bios is set at 1.550 under both speedfan and cpu-z, vcore is only around 1.378-1.4 but yes, this is my first overclock, and i might be playing around with the vcore a little too much but hey...my mb can take the 45nm quaddies so i wont loose any sleep if i ended up burning up the chip

Oh alrighty...i just noticed that my multiplier jumps down to 6 every now and then!! That makes my quad a 2.2 GHZ UNDERCLOCKED cpu.....Anyone ever see this? im gonna lower my fsb by 1 and see what happens

Hey all, I just got my quaddie running stable at 370 x 9. Using speedfan however seems to report my vcore at about .1 volts less then what i have it set to at bios...anyone else have this? I have bios set to 1.5 or so but vcore shows 1.4. also, i know you have to set all the core temps at 15 degree variable, but what about the cpu temp?

thanks all

[edit] cpu-z reports the same. both go between 1.39 and 1.40 and in bios i am set at a little over 1.5. Temps are stable at 48-50 for 2 cores and 54-60 for the other two [/edit]

I dont really understand this graph...why is the incoming so much more then the outgoing? Arent the WU files SETI sends out bigger then the results we send back?

LOL...no, the farm stays in the kitties' posession........
Just the RAC will transfer to the high team bidder.........


One thing I have not seen -

How long will the farm remain with the highest bidding team ???

And if "future donations" are accepted, how do you account for those.

I could promise $10,000 over the next 12 months.


I will add $50 for seti.usa
