It was having an issue, kept saying connecting with pae. I believe. I change the timings.
The w.u. was messed up from the power outage as it was. It would not have completed.
With the vmbox, when you stop it, you either save the machine state if you have to shut the computer down, or you pause the entire instance, for games/editing/etc. Either way, those are the only ways to do it.
When it shuts down from a blue screen, or a power outage like I had today, it always results in an imbalanced machine, and usually will not recover. Cost $2 a day to fold on, so in this example, I am out $4 and about 250k points.
I got a 6903 now instead.
However, at this point, its seeing whether or not the clock speed will make up for the slower timings. Between cl9 1866, and cl10 2133, the ppd was pretty much identical. Currently running at 2400mhz, 11-12-12-31-2t 1.65v. It may not be any better ppd. So its not worth the extra strain on the cpu/ram to run at this speed. Which is why I switched back to the 1866 in the first place.
This is all folding related mind you. It benches higher at higher latency/higher speed. Just seem to get better ppd with lower timings. Not certain why, might have more to do with the fact that work units are so dang long.
I have also been debating to sell this 4x4 kit for whatever I can get for it, and getting another pair of corsair vengeance. I have a 2x4gb kit that is cl7 1600mhz that is just dang killer ram, that I think would do much better for folding than the ram I currently have.
