Yah most games are designed for Windows or at least designed by people who primarily know Windows. Even Mac versions usually lag behind. It's too bad that they didn't just follow open standards so that the games could be made playable everywhere. Lots of games do run through wine, but the experience isn't always as goos as natively on Windows. I hope some day that will change.

By open standards you mean using opengl ? I don't mind i have to run the games with wine, it's just that directx in wine is kinda bad.

Currently i have windows 7 x64, ubuntu 10.04 and gentoo installed. Tough i only use linux if i'm programming. In general you just need windows, but atleast our school is going to use openoffice next year

OpenGL is an example of an open standard, but there are many others. The alternative is closed, proprietary software standards like Direct3D.

I got lucky, after buying the mobo and ram i still had some $$ left. Went to work at my dads house and got some more $$ and now i have enough for an HAF X.

I'm going to wait a few days tough, otherwise i would be distracted from my goal to reach 4Ghz

Sweet, just got my board and ram !
Finally i can use amd overdrive, and i got 4Ghz stable with 1.52V 55°C load temp xD I'm going to go for 4.1Ghz if i can get that on air lol
This is such a great board, tough i will be working on my ram timings and overclock so i won't fold today, sorry for that.

I love red buttons

Yeah i know my gpu's fan is full of dust, but without a case it gets dirty so fast and i won't open up the card every 4 days and use new tim

Looks sweet nicksasa!

I keep getting these 6701 WUs. They take forever and give so few points
post #327 of 1830
Any news from lethalrise ? We could really use an X6 bigadv for this month.

My new development server is all built and I am testing an OC on it tonight. It's not as good as my sig rig, but it should do nicely for folding and hosting. Would you guys prefer me contributing to the team on my sig rig for 20 hours per day (10 of those while I'm working on other things) or my new server:

Phenom II X6 @ 3.6GHz 1.4V
4GB OCZ Black DDR3 @ 1369MHz CL7
2570MHz IMC (CPU/NB)

There is no GUI installed and it will be able to fold 24/7 while only serving minor web or database requests along side F@H. Any preference?

Pending reply from LethalRise for an update on his situation.

Klaxian, how about get another passkey for the server and have them both folding to see which one turns out more points after say 5-7days. We'll go with the better one and if it's the server I'll get Zodac to update the passkey that she pulls the points from.

***EDIT - thinking about this some more... so would the server run -bigadv as well? Even if it is only on smp it would still be putting out more points than my GTX460 which is back to stock clocks now. Also, because CPU's use the passkeys it means you can still have both folding and contributing to your personal score; which would mean I could get my 460 back folding for myself.
Klaxian, get that server folding and let us know once it's knocked off those 10 WUs to get bonus points. At least until we hear back from LethalRise anyways... either way we are in a good position to choose a replacement member if it comes to that, seeing as the spot is a wildcard position

- Team Update -
6th place overall for October, just pipped out of fifth on the last day by a very small margin. That was a pretty good improvement to come from 2nd last mid-month to finish mid field!

Great work team! :

We should see some good improvements in November to put us in contention for a higher placing.
- Nicksasa should now able to fold more often during the day.
- Klaxian might have a replacement folding rig to offer more points.
- My rig will be going under water later in the month so will be running a decent overclock for more points too.
- We'll likely see a change with our "Wildcard" postion

Keep up the good work team
