post #171 of 3773
To Team Folders INC,

I'm in the proces of updating my 3rd computer rig. It's currently an XP1600+ on an old ECS M/B. I'm going to swap in a P4 2.6C cpu on an 865PE motherboard. I have two bids on eBay right now for an ASUS or MSI motherboard. The P4 is my old one. I'll use my older 160Gb Maxtor hard drive and 9700Pro video card. Hopefully, we'll be able to see better results within the team competiton. Timing should be by the end of the month. So June should be a good month for us in total.

BTW - I'm going out of town for a few days so I won't be back in the forum until late this week. No worries though, the folding rigs will continue 24/7. I'll have my daughters keep an eye on them...

Take care, :-)

Hi cappy,

You're speaking of the OCZ 3500, right?? You have them at 2,4,2,8, hmm. I was able to get the ram to 2.5,2,2,7 at a 230fsb.. It just wouldn't tighten any more than that on my motherboard. The memory controller on the motherboard is the important ingredient here. The MSI motherboard has the older 865 springdale chip set. The 2.6C cpu was at 2.99Ghz with the 230 fsb. I ran the fsb up to 240, but temps became a problem then...
I can't remember if you have the PC3500EL or the PC3500EB.

I used anandtech as my reference guide:
http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.aspx?i=2019&p=3
http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.aspx?i=1914&p=1
These links also give timings for AMD rigs like yours. Your timings are close to theirs...

They were not the Platinum series, but the Gold. So the overclocks are a little less...

I hope this helped, :-)

no matter what i do, this cpu wont go at 2.8... it goes to windows login and freeze. at 2.64 my idle temp is 36, compared to 44 with stock, and its 70 in the room right nowafter running folding for 3 mins its sticking around 52-53

Hi folks,

I'm back for now... I have a Llama show tomorrow so...
cappy, did you ever have any luck with your timings?? Maybe, just maybe you've hit the wall...

As for my 3rd rig, all the parts have been purchased. An MSI motherboard ($50.00 - eBay), and a 480W Antec power supply ($50.00 - coolerguys). So I should have the 2.6C P4 up and running by the end of the month easy... That should help our team scores and mine...

BTW - Overclock went into 55th place in the world yesterday... However, the TSC Russians are coming! We'll be back to 56th in a couple of weeks...

So keep on Folding and don't give up, :-)

Hi cappy,

Sorry to hear about your motherboard/cpu combo not wanting to go over 2.8Ghz... Maybe you've given it all it can take... However, at the present rate your folding you should get into the top 150 within the week!! BTW - You had a really great points total yesterday! Keep it up...

peroxide should go into the top 200 in 14 days and HellgY should go into the top 300 in 21 days. This is great stuff!

LBN, if you're out there, Thanks for starting this team!! :-) A round of applause to you!

As for me, maybe Monday I'll go into the top 100 and fight with the really big dogs there... It's going to be fun over the next few weeks and months. I can't wait to get my 3rd rig up and running with the 2.6C P4 on that MSI motherboard...

Take care, :-)

Hi cappy,

Man you are having some tough luck!! Post back here or in the main forum, someone should be able to help. I'll try but haven't had much success with ATI driver problems over the past few years. They used to be buggy especially with some video games using DirectX, but since the newer Catalyst drivers came out, they've been better.

Take care, :-)
