    Crept up to 127 atm but I'm about maxed out and it appears that the point requirement is actually running away from me.

    Tough crowd.

    More hardware...
    How many core are you currently running?

    i7-860, i3-530, 754, p8200 lappy (part-time, part-throttle on the lappy)

    So, 15 if you count HT and the lappy.

    Got another i3-530 and a Giga H55-ud2 in the cupboard but no ps or case for it atm.
    RMA Mushkin should be back Tuesday.
    That would give me 4 more.
    Hmmm.

    Haha, yeah it is a pretty tough crowd, but you'll make the top 100 if you give your RAC time to settle in.


    24 hour prime stable? Please, I'm 24/7/365 WCG stable!

    So you can do Furmark, Can you Grid???

    I noticed I finally reached top 100 in RAC yesterday.

    It's like trying to race with too many karts on the track right now... bumpin and rubbin...

    RAC over 2500 would have got you to your goal two weeks ago. I bet you'll need well over 4000 by the end of the week to make top 100.

    How's that i3-530 working out?
    Got a 550 here and was wondering if it's worth anything in WCG
    Crunch with us, the XS WCG team

    Im running:

    920 O/C to 3.6 8cores
    QX9650 O/C to 3.6 4cores
    Q6600 2.4 4cores
    E8400 3.0 2cores
    E7400 2.66 2cores
    E6400 2.1? 2cores
    P4 2.4 1core

    That's 23 cores, hopefully that will get me to the top 100 someday.

    Was running a dual core imac but had over heating issues.

    I have two laptops but I'm afraid to run those balls out, to much of my business is on those, cant afford to melt them.

    Here's the work log for the i3, MM.
    Note that I didn't have it cranked until Sierra dropped the flag the other day.
    Looks like it may be good for 12K or so.
    Have a better idea after it runs flat out for the week.

    It's 2 notches undervolted @ 167 bclck so 3.5ish. Stock cooler in an htpc case.
    Those were my initial settings (random guess on my part) and they worked right out of the box so I left it.
    Haven't fiddled with it at all to see how much more gas it may have in the tank.

    The 920's really crank out the work units, wish I had a couple more of those. The office does get hot if i don't leave the air on.
    You're doing great for 3 rigs.

    Good one, xeno.
    I suspect you are right about the 4K+.
    Lot's of dormant hardware coming on line.

    I'll be going backwards soon if I don't pick up the pace.

    Yowza!
    Same situation for me on the lappys-can't burn those down.

    My issue going forward will be power costs.
    The Bay Area has the most ridiculous electrical rates I've ever seen.
    Our PP&L bill is already routinely over $300/month.
    This is over double what we were paying when we lived in Alaska.

    Lucky for me, I have installed solar panels on all southern slanted roofs of our home, and our meter runs backwards for the majority of the year. So the power is a non issue for me.

    I'd be interested in a discussion with you on that one of these days, Weevil if you're amenable.
    Perhaps I'll start another thread or pm you when I have some more free time.

    Give a holler anytime, I also own/run an electrical contracting business, and we do work all over the state/bay area.

    I would very much like to see a thread on solar panels, I think the WCG area is a perfect place as we are already trying to save the world

    If power wasn't a concern I could get another stand alone ac unit and a few more 920's

    Me too, priced out solar in 2007-2008 to generate 3000KW/H/Month and say $80,000.00 in parts alone with a 26 year payback and cringed.

    I just check the ROI on Solar using this and the "break even" point was in 22 years. It seems stupid until the panels come down in price.

    Will do. Thanks, Weevil.

    Well, theoretically, one would reasonably expect to reap a monthly benefit now and then recover some of the initial investment upon sale of the residence.
    Unfortunately, acting on this assumption in today's world, and particularly with regard to Bay Area real estate, is quite likely to result in getting ones bored out to the approximate circumference of a refrigerator.

    Still worth looking into though.

    So it looks like I'm solidly in at #63 for RAC points.
    Here's what I got running
    Desktop:
    i7 920 @ 4.2Ghz (Main water cooled rig)
    PDC E2200 @ 2.93Ghz (WHS)
    Laptops:
    C2D P8600 @ 2.4Ghz (Main work lappy)
    C2D T7500 @ 2.2Ghz (spare laptop)
    C2D T7200 @ 2Ghz (spare laptop)
    C2D T7100 @ 1.8Ghz (spare laptop)
    C2D T7100 @ 1.8Ghz (spare laptop)
    PDC e???? @ 1.??Ghz (Friends laptop that doesn't run much)

    Looks like most of my power comes from laptops.

    *edit* anyone know how to fix my sig? No stats show up anymore...
    GB X58A-UD3R, i7 930es @ 4Ghz, GTX260, Corsair 12GB DDR3 1600, all h2o cooling

    Wooo top 100. #80 now and counting (that RAC is getting higher everyday). Feels warm and fuzzy. Oh warm may be because of that beast crunching 24/24..

    24/7 running quiet and nice
