Re: [Chat] New computer-ventilation question

Thank you. I hadn't. Am I now an extreme overclocker?

So I should do something really nice for my husband, who chose/configured this machine with Team Helix in mind?

If you mean the Passkey, I got it yesterday and copied/pasted the number in when I set up. Sorto told me to.

Googled "extreme overclocking," but didn't find anything I understood.

I'm a "Challenging Member" at the top of the "Radar Table" with this new machine working less 24 hours. It sure looks good.

Yes, Sorto, I'm amazed as you predicted. Maybe even stunned.

Wait 'til the bonus points kick in.

BTW, Firefox just prompted me to upgrade and now I'm getting the same error messages you get about the certs. One, so far, for DSLR.

Only if you wish to switch to overclocker's team from helix.

You do, however, get to enjoy their stats. They have those for all the teams, even us.

I'm way confused but don't really need to understand.

There's no risk in the extreme overclocking my computer is doing or you'd tell me.

No risk. Their team is just being courteous to the Folding Community. They have great stats, so they are sharing with the rest of the teams.

I wasn't worried about their team. I'd always just assumed extreme overclockers had set their machines up that way through complex means and mysterious settings. I'm learning.

We can instruct you in the alchemy involved in OverClocking, but you would need to buy some more hardware, (different Heatsink cooler). and watch the temps very very closely, 'till things stabilize.

That i5 is a GOOOOOD OC capable CPU!!

Probably best not ask husband about more hardware right now.

And that is probably an excellent way to void a warranty on a proprietary box.

Sure!
I will be happy to "advise" you.

(Actually, I forgot you bought it, and didn't build it.)

With those circumstances, I would suggest you leave the boxen closed, and stay outa' the BIOS.

Looks like you'd better get your best hankie out and get ready to wave as you start stomping ... I mean ... begin to gently pass each of your team mates and then ROAR on up to another to wave your hankie and gently pass and then ROAR ... well, you get the picture, right?

3,724 points ain't bad for 24 hrs., huh?

Still, it can't be all that fast compared to my team mates who have multiple computers.

Re: [Chat] New computer

Overclocking does come with its risks, and we are entering the hot season of the year. After you get some more experience under your belt you might look into it, the main thing is understanding how a mainboard works and understanding where and when temps are just too much.

Thank you! We live about 2 miles from the coast and have central air conditioning so am hoping summer won't cause problems.

Just to let you know: Overclocking/increasing voltages of CPU/RAM depends greatly on the motherboard you own. You see, the power circuitry on the mainboard that feeds the CPU will vary in sophistication. When driving CPUs above their stock clock, the loading/drain on the CPU power array can be too much for cheaper, non enthusiast boards.

Enthusiast boards use circuitry that is more advanced and has better heat sinks (some boards have no heat sink at all for this part of the circuitry).

An example of a more elaborate scheme is ASUS' "digi":

You all weren't kidding about this box being fast. Made a milestone last night, one passed during the day and made another tonight. That's a lot of work getting done!

It feels really cool, doesn't it? I'm using a GPU, a modest one, but it does a lot of work and it feels awsome knocking out these projects.

Per today's list, the XPS 8500 continues to do very well.

Do you know when it will show something other than zeros toward the right end of the Radar Table's line here: »kakaostats.com/usum.php?u=1533349 ?
