Therein lies the problem; I could afford the Mobo, maybe one more QX, and that's it.... I would have to scrap out of my other rigs, and that is not an option (my MediaCenter is also my DVR... almost a full TB dedicated for that, and I still haven't even finished one that I'm working on

EDIT: did I mention my wife would kill me? I just dropped over a G on my new monitor/HDTV

Do it! Harness the extremeness! And post 3dMarks~

I imagine overclocking to a higher level than 2.8 would be tortuous...considering it would take quite a few more trials to figure out voltages with 2 CPU's, as opposed to 1.

I am just afraid Buyer's Remorse will crush my skull afterwards...

I wanted to see what all the chatter was about so I bought it...but now I see to give this board a fair shake it needs lower latency RAM (not yet released) Faster CPUS (too much money for what they are) and Quadfire (no drivers yet).

Sigh.

But it's a good Folding rig at 2.82 ghz I am getting 1% of a WU every 9:10. I need to try out the affinity setter or VM and see about getting a lot more out of this beast at the speed.

Xeons are not Blue Blooded OCers...and there ar a number of protections built in (for server purposes) that interfere with OCing to some extent. Th Board requires moving a jumper to recover from a lock up: an extra step. I proabably pulled that jumper 20 times last night...get's old quick bcause the rig is so loud I lik to keep it closed.

I was actually wearing foam earplugs last night when OCing so I could keep the cover off.

Hm, sounds irritating. How long did it take to tweak for the 2.8? Considering the work you mentioned with the jumper, it probably took quite a while.

About half a day since I locked the board up and did not know about the jumper. I called to RMA...then found out there was a jumper and recovered the board. ProVantage was excellent about the return.

You should... load it up and make a stab at the record books with it

Better yet, go nVidia and get it back on top

Here ya go CD.. I don't remember where I stole it from, but I made one for my p5b-e board. I'm sure you have extra 3-pin plugs laying about



By the way, if you don't have one, lmk... I've got 2 that aren't being used that I'd be glad to send you.... Funny thing would be if you did not have one though :O

Hey, quick question...

Can you run the Skulltrail with only one CPU?

Yes you can. But rather expensive mobo to only run one CPU.
