00:46 <efc> 85/minute

00:51 <MTughan> Even sounds bad...

00:53 <MTughan> Anyway, I have to be off to bed. See ya.

00:53 <Tank_Master> gn

00:53 <MTughan> Posted my idea of a BOINC Manager to the boinc_dev mailing list too just a few minutes ago... Maybe we'll see some reform.

00:53 <MTughan> :P

00:55 <Tank_Master> g/l with that

00:55 <MTughan> Have you seen it?

00:55 <Romulus> <> (at

00:56 <Tank_Master> looks vary winDOS

00:56 <MTughan> Yeah, that's my drawing skills with GIMP...

00:56 <Tank_Master> :)

00:56 <Tank_Master> but it works

00:56 <MTughan> Supposed to be some OS X Leopard colours, but really not great with it...

00:57 <MTughan> If I can get something up in Interface Builder soon enough, oughta look cool.

00:57 <Tank_Master> to much room taken up at the top

00:58 <MTughan> That's for another toolbar, but I don't know what buttons to put up there yet.

00:58 <MTughan> Attach to Project would probably be one...

00:58 <Tank_Master> ahh

01:04 <MTughan> There. Refresh the image.

01:06 *** efc is now known as efc_P3_600

01:10 <surreal> hmm

01:10 <surreal> i'm getting some weird ass performance with my new Q6600

01:10 <surreal> running linux

01:10 <MTughan> How so?

01:11 <surreal> it switches between core 0 and core 2

01:11 <surreal> and the gui hangs

01:12 <MTughan> What version?

01:12 <Romulus> Somebody said What version are you using now, MTughan

01:12 <MTughan> You're not asking me, I'm asking surreal...

01:12 <surreal> hmm 5.10 something

01:12 <surreal> i just emerged it

01:12 <MTughan> 5.10.45 probably then...

01:13 <surreal> yeah it's really odd ... it's not doing this on my other gentoo pc

01:13 <MTughan> You could always try downloading the 6.2 beta. There are a few quirks, but it's fairly good right now.

01:13 <surreal> i'm too tired to putz with it tonight

01:13 <surreal> haha

01:13 <surreal> i've got work in 6 hrs

01:13 <surreal> i'll just let it do whatever its doing for now

01:13 <surreal> figure out tomorrow

01:13 <MTughan> School in 7h45m here.

01:14 <surreal> but at least the beast is built

01:14 <surreal> now i have two Q6600 crunchers

01:14 <MTughan> How are the Q6600's?

01:14 <surreal> so i can retire this BE2350 to a PVR

01:14 <surreal> great

01:14 <surreal> i've o/c'd them to 3ghz each

01:14 <surreal> 4200 RAC the first roughly

01:14 <surreal> and it's still climbing

01:14 <surreal> so i'm hoping for 5k rac on each

01:14 <MTughan> Planning on getting one myself. Got a Zalman 9500 cooler already, so I'd OC to 3.4 or higher if I can. :D

01:15 <surreal> that'll all depend on the voltage you'll need to run to it, mobo, etc

01:15 <surreal> the one in my gaming system is undervolted

01:15 <MTughan> Just OC'd my P4 2.8GHz to 3.15GHz. I think I can go higher, but Windows was randomly rebooting. Haven't figured out if it was the proc or the OS...

01:15 <surreal> and gets 3ghz

01:15 <surreal> this one gets 3ghz on stock voltage

01:15 <MTughan> I'd be running either a P35 or an X38 chipset MB.

01:16 <MTughan> With at least a 550W PSU.

01:16 <surreal> go 600 at least

01:16 <surreal> if you've got multiple hard drives

01:16 <MTughan> 2, but only one runs at a time.

01:16 <surreal> 600w psu's are at a good price overall

01:16 <Soul_keeper> that's a respectable oc MTughan

01:16 <Soul_keeper> :)

01:16 <surreal> i picked up my antec for $60

01:16 <surreal> and an OCZ for $65 after MIR

01:16 <MTughan> And my GPU from 523MHz to 590MHz. :D

01:16 <surreal> my room is full of blue LED's now

01:17 <surreal> ok gonna let this run for now

01:17 <MTughan> You're getting 600W PSUs for $60?

01:17 <surreal> hopefully it'll fix itself by the time i wake up

01:17 <surreal> yup

01:17 <surreal> NCIX had a sale 2 weeks ago

01:17 <surreal> $5.99 ground shipping

01:17 <MTughan> Ah, that explains it...

01:17 <surreal> and one of the door crashers was an Antec TruePower Trio 650W PSU

01:17 <Soul_keeper> i got a 650watt antec like 3 months ago, was 98 bucks locally

01:17 <surreal> $60

01:18 <surreal> and last week I ordered the OCZ gamer series PSU

01:18 <surreal> with blue LED's

01:18 <surreal> $90

01:18 <MTughan> The TruePower Trio 650W here is $110.

01:18 <surreal> but has like a $25 MIR

01:18 <MTughan> I have a TruePower (not Trio) 550W right now.

01:18 <MTughan> BTW, GPU was a Radeon 9600XT...

01:19 <surreal> i haven't even touched O/C'ing the 9600GT I just bought too

01:19 <surreal> lol

01:19 <surreal> but for $99 after MIR

01:19 <MTughan> Oh, I can get an Antec EarthWatts 650W PSU for $60.

01:19 <surreal> it sure beat an ATI 3870 I was looking at

01:19 <Soul_keeper> untill we can run boinc projects on the gpu no real point in oc'n it

01:19 <MTughan> Ah, planning on doing that too... Asus 9600GT Silent.

01:19 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, that's what i got is the earthwatts

01:19 <surreal> MTughan, I got the BFG version

01:19 <MTughan> Was looking at the NeoPower here, with the modular cables.

01:19 <surreal> $139

01:19 <surreal> then $40 MIR

01:20 <MTughan> Looking for a powerful computer, that's also dead quiet.

01:20 <surreal> $99 and a lifetime warranty

01:20 <MTughan> $170 for the Asus.

01:20 <surreal> I don't play crisis so I don't need to OC

01:20 <Soul_keeper> i got the earthwatts because it was the most recently released psu in antec's products

01:20 <MTughan> Planning to possibly play Call of Duty though.

01:20 <surreal> ok bedtime

01:20 <Soul_keeper> highest efficiency

01:20 <MTughan> Bye.

01:20 <surreal> catch you guys on the flip side

01:20 <Soul_keeper> late

01:20 *** surreal is now known as surreal[sleep]

01:21 <MTughan> I suppose what I could always do is splurge on a 1000W PSU now and keep it for a decade. xD

01:21 <MTughan> Or a 1250W... Nice.

01:21 <Soul_keeper> nah it'll be outdated in like 1yr

01:21 <Soul_keeper> they'll switch the connectors on you

01:22 <MTughan> And the 650W?

01:22 <efc_P3_600> What a ridiculous amount of power..

01:22 <Soul_keeper> i have a perfectly good 550 truecontrol, but had to get the 650 because they changed the connectors

01:22 <MTughan> Not for a commercial workstation, it's not.

01:23 <Soul_keeper> if you do sli or crossfire on an overclocked system you can easily pull like 500 watts on the spikes

01:23 <MTughan> Yep, 1250W seems to be the most powerful here. A few 1200W units too.

01:23 <Soul_keeper> top end stuff of course

01:24 <MTughan> Yeah, was planning on allowing for expandability to SLI, but apparently the nVidia chipsets aren't great for OC'ing Intel CPUs... Not as good as Intel's chips anyway.

01:24 <Soul_keeper> even if you don't max the psu out stability goes down as power usage goes up, the rails lag

01:24 <MTughan> So I changed from looking for an nForce NB to a P35 or X38 NB.

01:25 <MTughan> Ah, CAD updated... Reading it, then I need to go to bed.

01:25 <Soul_keeper> intel chipsets for intel cpu

01:25 <Soul_keeper> that's always been the best

01:25 <efc_P3_600> I think I'm going to get a Kill-a-watt and do some measurements, should be interesting

01:25 <Soul_keeper> amd  is good with mixing it up tho

01:26 <Soul_keeper> efc_P3_600, yeah i picked one up from newegg 6 months back

01:26 <MTughan> May be, but AMD's Phenoms still don't quite measure up to the Core 2 Quads, not even the Kentsfield cores.

01:26 <MTughan> Anyway, seeya.

01:26 <efc_P3_600> this thing is running on a 235 watt, probably very lightly loaded on it, but its ancient

01:27 <efc_P3_600> I'd be able to see for sure

01:28 <Soul_keeper> i got a c2d system at 3GHz with integrated graphics and matx mb, it only pulls 120 watts under load

01:28 <Soul_keeper> measured with the killawatt

01:28 <Soul_keeper> my P4 at 3.2 pulls well over 300 watts with an nvidia 6800

01:28 <efc_P3_600> Nice

01:29 <efc_P3_600> Yeah P4 needs to get the Energy-Star Flunk award

01:30 <Soul_keeper> welp i'm headed out for the night, late

05:20 <CoderForLife> in humidity

05:20 <KathrynM> hill holding up?

05:21 <CoderForLife> it hasn't completely fallen down...

05:21 <KathrynM> construction start soon?

05:21 <CoderForLife> I see a progress report is needed.. =)

05:21 <KathrynM> yes

05:22 <CoderForLife> I have the final plan from the civil engineer.  I've made contact with the most likely contractor..

05:23 <CoderForLife> he shoud,have picked up the plan from the civil this past weekend..

05:23 <CoderForLife> he will be on vacation this week..

05:23 <CoderForLife> but said that he could get me pricing by mid-week the week after..

05:23 <CoderForLife> I just got an e-mail this morning..

05:24 <CoderForLife> from the homeowner's association asking if they can come by tonight or tomorrow night to approve the plan..

05:24 <KathrynM> ouch

05:24 <CoderForLife> I have figured out about (hopefully) 80% of the financing

05:25 <KathrynM> that's good

05:25 <CoderForLife> *assuming* my civil wa sright about the installed cost

05:25 * KathrynM crosses fingers

05:25 <CoderForLife> I am hoping he was *too high*  =)

05:26 <KathrynM> me too

05:27 <CoderForLife> I am going to try to get in touch with another contractor - an e-mail I sent to introduce myself and my need bounced back - mailbox full

05:27 <KathrynM> that's a positive sign

05:27 * KathrynM shakes head

05:27 <CoderForLife> it's a sign all right

09:17 <jackygrahamez> Hi PovAddict_

09:18 <jackygrahamez> What you said last week made so much sense to me but now I forgot

09:18 <jackygrahamez> The humidity does that

09:20 <jackygrahamez> I remember you said make a wrapper and do something to get the python path...

09:23 <jackygrahamez> ahh I see we have logs!

09:23 <Tank_Master> :)

09:25 <jackygrahamez> <PovAddict> modify the wrapper so that it concatenates the project directory with "python.exe" *instead* of calling resolve_filename

10:15 <Tank_Master> id blame google

10:15 <avis> why ?  they did not choose to publish my name

10:16 <Tank_Master> they have a habit of indexing things they shouldnt

10:16 <avis> the web servers that world community grid and rosetta project chose to publish that, not google

10:16 <Tank_Master> id still blame google :P

10:17 <avis> i dont believe google will index pages that have been marked as "do not page" in their web master tools

10:17 <Tank_Master> oh, but they have in the past

10:18 <avis> that doesn't make them necessarily guilty in this case.  i'd have to check the web page code, which i dont feel like doing.

10:53 <chanueting> I would like to ask what does 'Account manager error: can't resolve hostname' means

10:53 <Tank_Master> it cant find the SETI servers

10:53 <Tank_Master> cant translate the server name to an IP address

10:54 <chanueting> but the server is up, right?

10:54 <Tank_Master> knowing SETI?

10:54 <Tank_Master> it could easly be down

10:55 <dizzie> Isnt Seti pretty much always down ? :)

10:55 *** quail has joined #boinc

11:05 <hawmps> pasting here isn't a problem...

11:05 <Tank_Master> no, it really isnt a prob

11:06 <chanueting> so, what do you think?

11:06 <hawmps> just try to keep it less than 8-10

11:06 <hawmps> seti was bouncing on and off earlier...

11:07 <hawmps> so it could be their site...

11:07 <Tank_Master> but boincstats would still work is SETI was down

11:07 <hawmps> or your DNS is hosed up..

11:07 <Tank_Master> Account manager error: can't resolve hostname

11:07 <chanueting> how about boincstat?

11:07 <hawmps> which there has been a bunch of lately..

11:08 <PovAddict> chanueting: can you go to from your browser?

11:08 <chanueting> sure

11:09 <hawmps> ping

11:09 <hawmps> if you can....

11:10 <chanueting> I can

11:10 <hawmps> hmmm...

11:11 <hawmps> can you bring up the setiathome web page?

11:11 <chanueting> I use FC9, when I use non-privileged user to run boinc, no problem exists, but there are the problems after using root

11:11 <hawmps> yeah.. that would do it...

11:12 <hawmps> did you install selinux?

11:12 <chanueting> yes

11:13 <hawmps> there's your answer... you'll have to run boinc as it's own user via a remote shell or something

11:14 <chanueting> sorry, I cannot see your point

11:15 <dizzie> dont run it as suid 0 (root)

11:19 *** ELGono has quit IRC

11:21 <chanueting> Isn't the site tell us to run it as root?

11:21 <Romulus> <> (at

11:22 <chanueting> or, have I misunderstood?

11:22 <PovAddict> where?

11:22 <hawmps> that assumes you're "user" (not root)

11:22 *** ELGono has joined #boinc

11:27 <chanueting> I am confused, why need I use root then?

11:28 <chanueting> Let see the part 'Fedora 7 and up'

11:28 <chanueting> Isn't the daemon ran by root?

11:30 <PovAddict> no, it never is

11:30 <PovAddict> you always need root to install any package

11:30 <PovAddict> but the fedora package then creates a whole new user for boinc to run in

11:31 <dizzie> i dont even know my root pass

11:31 <dizzie> sudo -i works :)

11:32 <chanueting> how about '/sbin/chkconfig boinc-client on' and '/sbin/service boinc-client start' in the passage?

11:32 <PovAddict> I don't know about fedora

11:35 <chanueting> neither do I at this point

11:38 *** quail has quit IRC

11:39 *** chanueting has left #boinc

11:57 <KathrynM> FWIW, the stuff in the Fedora part about root is there because the package manager creates a boinc user without a password.  At least I think so.

11:57 <KathrynM> I'm not using the package, but that's how the rpm was setup

11:57 <PovAddict> you always need root to install a package

11:57 <KathrynM> that and starting daemons has to be done as root

11:57 <KathrynM> I think he was mainly talking about

11:57 <KathrynM> As root, open /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg in a text editor (the long string of characters is the GUI RPC password).

11:58 <PovAddict> yep

11:58 <KathrynM> I'd rather control the boinc version myself

12:15 <PovAddict> those are messages like "delete file", or trickle-downs for workunits

18:08 <jackygrahamez> They don't like me

18:08 <surrealillusion> i found the ak made a good improvement

18:08 <surrealillusion> now im just waiting for some rebates to come back

18:08 <surrealillusion> and to sell this sonata II case

18:08 <PovAddict> MTughan: fine, I'll upload it somewhere else

18:08 <surrealillusion> once i get the power supply rma'd

18:09 <MTughan> Uh... Okay...

18:09 <MTughan> No, I got it up.

18:09 <surrealillusion> then i'm gonna build a vista home premium pvr

18:09 <surrealillusion> with a Q6600

18:09 <surrealillusion> lol

18:09 <Soul_keeper> i'm running   2.4_Linux32_kernel_2.6_Intel_SSE3_FIXED.tar.bz2  now

18:09 <MTughan> Isn't that a little excessive?

18:09 <surrealillusion> MTughan: for a pvr?

18:09 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: You're running a bunzip?

18:09 <surrealillusion> or a cruncher ;)

18:09 <MTughan> PVR alone.

18:09 <surrealillusion> pvr/cruncher

18:10 <surrealillusion> haha

18:10 <surrealillusion> q9450 would be a bit excessive

18:10 <surrealillusion> for a pvr

18:10 <surrealillusion> mmm 12meg cache

18:10 <MTughan> Why?

18:10 <surrealillusion> i could just o/c this 2140 i have sitting here

18:11 <MTughan> If you're already running a Q6600, what's the diff in going to a Q9450?

18:11 <xcamel> 'lo Mike

18:11 <surrealillusion> lower TDP

18:11 <MTughan> 'lo Jay

18:11 <surrealillusion> less heat

18:11 <surrealillusion> more cache

18:11 <Soul_keeper> i checked prices yesterday and the c2q with 12MB runs about 250 bucks

18:11 <MTughan> Yeah, but why would it be excessive?

18:11 <surrealillusion> MTughan, an extra $150

18:11 <Soul_keeper> 275 for the xeon version

18:11 <surrealillusion> right now

18:11 <MTughan> Damn... Q6600 costs that. :(

18:11 <surrealillusion> wow $250? USD?

18:11 <Soul_keeper> yeah on newegg

18:11 <surrealillusion> we're still at $350 CDN

18:12 <surrealillusion> for a 9450

18:12 <MTughan> I can get a Q6600 for $230... And a Q9450 for ~$400.

18:12 <surrealillusion> pcvillage had a sale a while back

18:12 <surrealillusion> q6600 for $199

18:12 <MTughan> I think... Let me check.

18:15 <surrealillusion> yup

18:15 <surrealillusion> Morningside

18:15 <surrealillusion> south of the 401

18:15 <MTughan> And the Q9450 is still $390 here, $300 for the Q9300.

18:15 * surrealillusion fills out his rebate forms

18:16 <surrealillusion> $350

18:16 <surrealillusion> umm

18:16 <MTughan> $230 for the Q6600.

18:16 <surrealillusion> check

18:26 <surrealillusion> and even the titan650

18:26 <surrealillusion> but i settled on the nine hundred for my gaming rig

18:26 <MTughan> No, this is the P182 Special Edition...

18:26 <surrealillusion> and the three hundred

18:26 <surrealillusion> for my file server

18:26 <MTughan> What do you think of mirror sides? xD

18:26 <surrealillusion> tossed some extra antec blue led fans into the three hundred

18:26 <surrealillusion> MTughan: I had two Sonata cases

18:26 <surrealillusion> i hated the smudges

18:52 <wdsmia> err of

18:52 <xcamel> ah..

18:52 <CoderForLife> HOA guy just left

18:52 <xcamel> big storms here... all went south of me...

18:52 <CoderForLife> he was appalled

18:52 <wdsmia> I live in West Des Moines... I know better than to live around there

18:52 <xcamel> I bet... first visit?

18:53 <CoderForLife> he's going to bring out more HOA people to see it

18:53 <CoderForLife> yes first time

18:53 <xcamel> about damned time...

18:53 <CoderForLife> he wants to grin the president of the HOA, a board member who owns a construction company, and an attorney

18:53 <CoderForLife> grin -> bring

18:54 <CoderForLife> the attorney had a sinkhole in his backyard from construction debris

18:54 <CoderForLife> he sued the home builder on his own time, and won $150,000

18:55 <CoderForLife> so there's precedent in the neighborhood with this builder

18:56 <CoderForLife> the HOA guy's house is situated like mine, and he's now sweating bullets

18:56 <CoderForLife> he's even talking how the HOA could help financially

18:56 <CoderForLife> I don't expect that would get much traction

18:57 <CoderForLife> I'll be hosting a few more visits this week, it looks like, but it's good to see the HOA stepping up

18:57 <CoderForLife> well, enough about that

18:57 <wdsmia> maybe the Attorney will take it on pro bono LOL

18:58 <CoderForLife> hope springs external

18:58 <CoderForLife> I'd hate to spend the wall money on an attorney, and lose

20:27 <Romulus> MTughan: Your current monologue is at least 9 lines long.

20:29 *** quail has quit IRC

20:29 <MTughan> I'd probably hold off until I see how efficient the cooler is, but that's me...

20:33 <xcamel> you need an endothermic reactor...

20:36 <Soul_keeper> :)

20:37 <Soul_keeper> i had a guest

20:38 *** quail has joined #boinc

20:40 <Soul_keeper> so for just over 200 bucks i could max out my board with high quality mem

20:41 <Soul_keeper> lol i payed 380 bucks for 1GB of ddr1 back when i got that,  now 8GB is like half that price

21:13 *** surrealillusion has joined #boinc

21:15 <surrealillusion> power outages are ghey

21:15 <surrealillusion> to the max.

21:42 <xcamel> and dark.

21:52 <xcamel> laterz..

21:54 <quail> morning all, how are we all?

22:01 <surrealillusion> burnt out.

22:01 <surrealillusion> and it's only monday

22:03 <PovAddict> it was a holiday here

22:03 <PovAddict> but tomorrow... w#$%

22:03 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

22:05 <Soul_keeper> just forked out 465 bucks for my carb :(

22:07 <Soul_keeper> coulda got a quad core and 2GB of mem for that ...

22:07 <Soul_keeper> 4~

22:09 *** jackygrahamez__ has quit IRC

22:11 <surrealillusion> carb?

22:11 <surrealillusion> car?

22:12 <surrealillusion> and yeah that would have been a q6600 and 4 gigs of ram here

22:12 <surrealillusion> or just a q9450

22:18 <Soul_keeper> carburetor

22:18 <Soul_keeper> i already payed 300 for the aftermarket carb 5 months ago, but it's not smog legal

22:18 <Soul_keeper> so that'd basically be a top end vid card or something

22:19 <surrealillusion> ouch

22:50 <PovAddict> temperature:             19 C

22:50 <PovAddict> pretty accurate I guess

22:51 <PovAddict> my desk thermometer broke so I'm using mobo temperature as replacement :P

22:51 <Soul_keeper> temperature:             68 C

22:51 <PovAddict> wth

22:51 <Soul_keeper> wth ?

22:51 <PovAddict> I guess mine is measuring mobo and yours CPU

22:52 <Soul_keeper> yeah probably the nb temp

22:52 <PovAddict> or

22:52 <surrealillusion> my sys temp is 35C

22:52 <PovAddict> it's actually not C

22:52 <surrealillusion> and my cpu temp says 29C

22:52 <Soul_keeper> my sys is 36c  i got really good cooling on it tho

22:52 <PovAddict> surrealillusion: watercooling?

22:52 <Soul_keeper> my psu temp is a staggering 54

22:52 <surrealillusion> nope

22:52 <surrealillusion> air cooled

22:52 <surrealillusion> =]

22:53 <surrealillusion> antec three hundred case

22:53 <PovAddict> no way your CPU is at 29C

22:53 <surrealillusion> 3 x120 antec fans

22:53 <surrealillusion> 1 x 140 antec fan

22:53 <surrealillusion> core temps are at 48C-46C

22:53 <surrealillusion> Q6600 OC'd to 3ghz

22:53 <PovAddict> 46C sounds more like it

22:53 <surrealillusion> with a stock intel hsf i'd be running closer to 60-65

22:53 <surrealillusion> in my old case

22:53 <surrealillusion> *shudder*

22:54 <MTughan> What are you using for a cooler?

22:54 <surrealillusion> ocz Vendetta2

22:54 <surrealillusion> since I can't get the xigmatek 2183

22:54 <surrealillusion> no shop in Ottawa carries them

22:54 <MTughan> We'll have to see how it compares to a Zalman 9500 when I get a Q6600...

22:55 <surrealillusion>

22:55 <Soul_keeper> Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme     here

22:55 <MTughan> Stable at 60C at full load with a S478 P4 Prescott OC'd to 3.2GHz.

22:55 <MTughan> And this sucker is hot...

22:55 <PovAddict> bed ->

22:55 <MTughan> Bye.

22:56 <surrealillusion> g'nite

22:56 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, sell it

22:57 <Soul_keeper> P4's are worthless now

22:57 <Soul_keeper> lol

22:57 <MTughan> I thought you meant the cooler...

22:57 <MTughan> There's not a whole lot I can do about it until I get a new core comp though.

22:59 <surrealillusion> i still got one more mobo to pair a CPU with

22:59 <surrealillusion> and it's the asus p5k-vm hdmi

23:00 <Soul_keeper> not bad

23:00 <MTughan> So on the high settings, the Vendetta2 is about 10db quieter than the 9500...

23:01 <Soul_keeper> i have a  p5l-mx  for my heatless box

23:01 <MTughan> Wow, the 9700 is even louder...

23:01 <MTughan> I have to consider this, as I'm going to be OC'ing and am going for a very quiet computer too...

23:01 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

23:02 <MTughan> Problem is I'm speccing this out for a grad/birthday gift, so I can't push the price sky high.

23:02 <MTughan> Already just under $900 for a new CPU, MB, RAM, and GPU.

23:02 <Soul_keeper>      same thing you got just older chipset

23:02 <Romulus> <> (at

23:02 <surrealillusion> heh i did

23:02 <surrealillusion> but tried to save money where i could

23:03 <surrealillusion> i spent probably a grand in a last month

23:03 <Soul_keeper> i have a zalman cooler on that board, whisper quiet

23:03 <surrealillusion> but got two new pc's out of it

23:03 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: I have a P4C800-E Deluxe if that helps.

23:03 <Soul_keeper> i have an   abit  ip35-e  in my main system

23:04 <MTughan> I plan to be keeping this computer for 4-5 years because I'm going to university (Carleton ;) ) and gonna be cash strapped. Want something to last.

23:04 <surrealillusion> i've got a asus p5k-deluxe wifi for my gaming board, an asus p5w-dh deluxe for my linux file server (which I'm xchatting on)

23:05 <MTughan> Looking at an Asus P5E. X38 chipset.

23:05 <Soul_keeper> that's ddr3 right ?

23:05 <surrealillusion> p5e3

23:05 <surrealillusion> is ddr3

23:05 <MTughan> DDR2.

23:05 <surrealillusion> i think

23:06 <surrealillusion> i heard the performance increase isn't worth the money for the ram

23:06 <Soul_keeper> i'm concerned that all the 775 boards out are gonna have a limited upgrade path, something tells me 8 core chips won't work in them

23:06 <MTughan> No, it's not. That's why I'm want Mushkin DDR2 Redline PC2-8000 RAM.

23:06 <Soul_keeper> lol

23:07 <MTughan> I hope not... That would mean the second time I'd have bought a computer just before the CPU technology was outdated...

23:07 <Soul_keeper> the redline series is overpriced imo,  the slower stuff will oc to that level easily

23:07 <MTughan> Bought this probably about 2 months before 775 came in.

23:07 <MTughan> I compared it to XP2-1066. OC'd to a higher level with less voltage and tighter timings.

23:07 <Soul_keeper> intel is about to release the x48 chipset or whatever

23:07 <MTughan> And cheaper than the XP2-1066.

23:08 <MTughan> X48's already out...

23:08 <Soul_keeper> did they say it will support 8 cores ?

23:08 <MTughan> This is what I'm looking at:

23:08 <Romulus> <> (at

23:08 <MTughan> No idea. I just know I've seen Asus MBs with X48 chipsets.

23:09 <Soul_keeper> that site don't carry abit motherboards  hmmm

23:10 <MTughan> Is Abit good quality?

23:10 <surrealillusion> mmm Abit BP6

23:10 <surrealillusion> between that an the CUV4X-DLS

23:11 <surrealillusion> best dual P3 boards

23:11 <surrealillusion> i miss the day of old school smp

23:11 <MTughan> What about Skulltrail? Dual quad-core Xeons.

23:12 <surrealillusion> mmm 8 core procesing

23:12 <surrealillusion> ive seen some of those macs with 8 cores

23:12 <surrealillusion> pretty sick

23:13 <MTughan> Yeah, those are the same setup.

23:13 <MTughan> Maybe different specific processors, but still dual quad-core Xeons.

23:13 <Soul_keeper> i've had better experience with abit than asus

23:13 <Soul_keeper> both good tho

23:17 <MTughan> Looking over a review for the Xigmatek HDT-S1283, which I believe it said that the Vendetta2 was based on. Very good performance, with 35dB. Should be possible to replace that with an even quiter fan...

23:18 <MTughan> Just 20C over ambient with a 150W load.

23:19 <surrealillusion> not bad

23:19 <Soul_keeper> i like thermalright heatsinks, they can be hard to find in stock at places sometimes tho

23:19 <MTughan> Yeah. The site there carries Thermaltake but not Thermalright.

23:20 *** wdsmia_ has joined #Boinc

23:20 <surrealillusion> whoo

23:20 <MTughan> Anyway, with that kind of performance for only $35, that's pretty darn good.

23:20 <surrealillusion> just broke the 200k mark in seti

23:20 <MTughan> I think it's a little heavier than the 9500, but only by 15-25g.

23:20 <MTughan> Congrats... I think I'm working on 130K on E@H.

23:21 <MTughan> With just a P4 and a Core Duo though, I consider that pretty good.

23:21 <surrealillusion> i managed most of the 200k with a q6600 and a be2350

23:21 <MTughan> And just the P4 crunching right now.

23:21 <wdsmia_> 10,390,194.26

23:22 <MTughan> Looks like I broke the 125K mark in Einstein today actually...

23:22 <MTughan> Nope, yesterday.

23:22 *** wdsmia has quit IRC

23:22 *** wdsmia_ is now known as wdsmia

23:27 <wdsmia> in the top 1000 of all the projects  I crunch

23:27 <MTughan> Yes Doug, you whoop all our asses in BOINC. How many times have we heard now?

23:27 <wdsmia>

23:27 <Soul_keeper> it's not showing your hosts

23:28 <wdsmia> maybe 3 or 4 :P

23:29 <wdsmia> not showing the hosts... well I dont want to upset MTughan

23:30 <MTughan> Don't worry, I'm looking over a headset.

23:31 <surrealillusion> lol

23:32 <surrealillusion>

23:32 <Romulus> <> (at

23:33 <MTughan> Heh, I still have more credit than you overall...

23:33 <MTughan>

23:33 <Romulus> <> (at

23:33 <wdsmia> Ah stuck with seti

23:33 <surrealillusion> yup

23:33 <surrealillusion> haven't jumped to anything else yet

23:33 <MTughan> Although for time, you're killing me.

23:33 <surrealillusion> only been crunching for the past 2.5 months

23:34 <surrealillusion> i did do seti classic ... but forgot the account i used years ago

23:34 <MTughan> Took me over a year to get there, although most of that was with only the P4 at stock speeds. The Core Duo got me really far...

23:34 <Soul_keeper> i tore seti classic up lol,  can you still check old stats ?

23:34 <MTughan> I've found that, at least for Mac and Linux x86, Einstein gives lots of points.

23:34 <MTughan> credits*

23:35 *** Didactylos has quit IRC

23:35 <MTughan> Heh... The graphs are the bottom are all solid blue. Nice blue though...

23:35 <wdsmia> lol

23:36 <surrealillusion> still gotta figure out what i'm going to do with that sun fire v120 server ....

23:37 * wdsmia heads for the pillow server

23:37 <wdsmia> &nn

23:37 <Romulus> Live long and crunch!

23:37 <MTughan> Not sure if anyone's really interested... But I have an OOo spreadsheet of what I'm speccing.

23:38 <MTughan> Bye.

23:38 <MTughan> If anyone does open it, ignore the first page. That's obsolete now, I've stopped updating it.
