Hi taeric,

Thanks for the info. I just checked and it is "iterating". The first 2% took 25 minutes. My little AMD64 3800+ (2.0Ghx stock) is going to take about 24-25 hours for this core to complete. According to the Stanford site, it's worth 716 points (p3027) so I guess that will be just fine!

I know the Conroes are much faster, but I had to use my previous purchase of a Gigabyte Socket 939 M/B. After I get this one finished and perhaps another, I will start to overclock the cpu and see if I can get it up to 2.6Ghz with the stock and very lame alum heatsink...

I hope this works better than my failed attempt at running a second gpu folding machine!

BTW - Congrats on being the Top Folder for OCN!

Thanks again and Take care, :-)

Looks like you have SMP up and running eh, congrat buick. It'll show.

Taeric and Franken both averages out to be about 5 minutes per frame.

I have the 939 Opteron (stock at 1.8) now at 2.6, fold about 9 minute per frame. Just wanted to let you know... that about how long it takes. =) thats about 800~900 ppd. Good luck folding Buick

Hey Guys,

I guess someone already bought the chip I was looking for at Tiger Direct, but I found another 3.4 gig P4 Intel 478 at Geeks,com for $129 plus shipping. So, I ordered it last night. `Hope to get it in a week or so. My existing chip has been in place for about 3 years. What`s the easiest and safest way to unseat it? I would like to resell it if possible, plus I don`t want to have to worry about broken pins, either.

What kind of chip you're purchasing? Prescott, Northwood?

First you just need to dissemble the hsf. But before you pull the actual heatsink off, twist the heatsink a bit so the connection between the cpu and the heatsink (usually as5) will break and the heatsink will come easier. Then lift the lock-arm on the side of the socket and just pop the cpu out. If you don't twist then it'd still be fine but might stuck the cpu up and out of the socket before lifting the lock-arm which might do damage to the pin and stuff, which could render your old cpu broken and can't sell for $$.

See my gallery if you don't recall the socket interface and which way you should put your cpu in.

Hi shajbot,

Thanks!! It's at 17% and climbing. I hope it finishes and I don't get an EUE!

Loading the Fedora 6 OS from those disks was real easy. It seemed to have all of the drivers as well. If Microsoft ever makes me go Vista over Xp I'll go Fedora 6 on my main rig since it's 64 bit compatible...

Thanks for all of your help, :-)

Hi Chaogo,

Thanks!!! I haven't started overclocking the cpu yet. I'll do that after the SMP rig completes a few work units first. If I only get 500-700 points per day that's Ok by me for now. I just want stability right now! Besides, taeric and Franken have very powerful, state of the art rigs! Mine is just a lowly AMD64 X2 3800+ on a Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 Ver 2.2 board....

Take care, :-)

Hi hvac,

shajbot is right. Did you assemble the computer or did someone else?? If you did and you used Arctic Silver 2,3 or 5 then no worries. If someone else did or the thermal pad on the stock heatsink was used, then be very careful removing the heatsink. I've had stock thermal pads adhere themselves so well, that removing the heatsink, also removed the cpu.

I was able to re-straighten the pins and re-use the cpu but being very careful is the word of the day. As shajbot noted, trying to twist the heatsink a little might help break the seal the heatsink has to the cpu. Just be careful on the twisting as well. You wouldn't want to twist the heatsink off and remove the cpu in the same motion. If you know what I mean...

Take care and I hope this helped, :-)

Oh you did that too?

Well it's funny now anyway. Mine went like this: http://www.overclock.net/1278981-post1.html

Great advise, be very careful.

Hey buick, Anyway i could get you to send me down those discs, then i send back after the install is done? Itl be in a week or less, maybe more and i buy my opty 165. But i figure that will give me 500-900 PPD! I hope that is! I would just run fedora as my main OS< then when i wanted to game i might have to switch over to XP, but oh well. I figure 500-900 becuase i game alot, and Chaogod87 said his which is a 165 i think, 1.8 gig at stock does 800-900?!? Ill be overclocked a ton also. Shaj, you better watch it. Ill be expecting about a 9-10k point month, maybe higher.
