Don't let it get you down - I just gave up the Dell 4600C... was getting 300 PPD on QMDs with that one - went back to the owner... very unstable individual who I want NOTHING to do with... not even monitoring her machine with FAHremote...

Also just lost a 1700+... the teenager who owns it keeps downloading porn, which inevitably brings in all sorts of malicious BHO's, browser hijackers, worms, trojans, virii... I get the machine every few months when it absolutely refuses to boot anymore. Although I get paid to fix it, I'm sick and tired having to take the time to do it, especially when he wants to me to save his mp3's and music videos... which are mixed in the same folder as some pretty vile crap. It's just not worth it for the money, nor for the 80 PPD.

Got any spare change laying around the house/apartment/dorm? I have one machine running that I built with spare change. No kidding. It completed a 364 pt WU just yesterday! Look around for all those penny jars you might have had growing up... it's a gold mine!

AND TEAM 11108 NEEDS MORE POINTS!

Gram has been helping me out for a long time now. He contributes about 1/2-2/3 of the production, give or take.

It used to be that Kybo contributed a great deal to the Dan O'Connell username as well. But Kybo lost his PC privileges last March IIRC, and he was supposed to get them back in August. It seems he had a PC in a drawer which he was caught using a few weeks before he was supposed to get his privileges back. Last I heard he was supposed to get them back in November. :(


I'll PM him today and see if I can get a response. Maybe I'll be able to figure out if and when he'll be able to start folding again.

Dan O.

I remember that as well, but it happened before I joined the forums... must have read about it while lurking.

By all means, get him back in the game if you can.

I take it most of your folders aren't QMD crunchers... when I first started (blah, blah years ago) I didn't have anything that could access the QMDs when Stanford began issuing them. Your current experience is precisely what drove me into the arms of Intel... I figured I'd maximize my production (approx 500 PPD per P4 running QMDs) by going that route, since a typical 3800+ makes around 120 PPD on a string of 54 pt Gromacs (groan).

My X2 3800+ is currently avoiding that circle of hell... one 600 ptr and one 364 ptr... making 472 PPD. :D

It'll turn around for you guys.

Intel? Intel??? I will never own or build an Intel machine ever in my life!!!! Overpriced garbage is what that is.....I mean come on AMD makes a slower processor (ghz) that performs on par with a faster clocked piece of silicon!! And they did the dual core thing WAY better than Intel did....Ok no flames on this thread...KEEP ON TOPIC PLEASE!!!! I also have a 600 now after 2 days of broken puter....but all better now!!

AHEM......TEAM MONKEY IS YELLOW BANANA!!!

C'mon bigtoy, this wasn't an invitation to flame Intel, despite the fact that I pretty much agree with you regarding AMD -vs- Intel... I went w/Intel primarily because of the fact that until QMDs were released for AMD procs (or the WUs came along that made it possible for AMDs to compete PPD-wise with Intel... like we've seen this week with the new fat daddies that Stanford just released), the best way for me to maximize points production per machine was to fold QMDs... that meant building P4-based machines. Don't read any more into my previous comments than that - I'm not an Intel Fanboi.

In fact, unless I manage to score another Abit IC7-MAX3 Skt 478 board on eBay, my next build will follow in the footsteps of my most recent 64 X2 3800+. The new WUs on an X2 look like the true heavy-hitters I was waiting for, judging from the un-optimized performance of my new X2 3800+ build.

My Pentium D 830 will probably max out at 700 - 750 PPD on a pair of QMDs... I think I can get higher PPD on an X2 running some of the new WUs... testing NOW.

If Intel wants to get back into the game, they need to focus on expanding the Pentium M line - Grammarton Cleric has reported 600ish PPD on his, which isn't HT (I believe) and hence is running only a single instance of FAH... I'd like to see a ground-up build of a dual core based on that architecture... might be a true powerhouse, without being blowdryer like the current crop of Prescotts.

SO... I wouldn't say I'll never build another Intel... who knows what the landscape might look like in 3 years? After all, go back a few years, and it was Intel whomping AMD's @ss... I never thought that would change, but it did. It changed before, it can change again. Be ready!

OPh I'm ready....I do a lot of construction work at the local Intel plant...the Ronler Acres facility. It's a nice place to work but I ill stick by the fact that I will never own one...I'm still waiting for those nice new WU's to show up on my dualie...got a free 1 ghz amd gonna get set up soon and my g/f's comp is coming sooner than she thinks...another amd64 3200+...should do alright. Oh yeah almost forgot...Lodis is back so we go up the charts again lol!!!

GO TEAM MONKEY!!!

Bigtoy,

I've just GOT to build another X2... I'm so thrilled with the first one I've built that I can't stand it!!! It's churning away at (combined) roughly 500 PPD at the moment doing one of those new 586 pt WUs plus some craptacular WU worth (going from memory) 106 pts. Gonna have to do some more driving around the business area to garner more $$$, though. All my builds are completed off-budget, i.e. funds are WAY tight here in House MonsterBuilder... no play money available.

Speaking of craptacular WUs... try a 2052. Holy Dogsqueeze! I've got one running on an old P4 1.6 lappy at the moment. This machine makes about 125 PPD on 600 pt WUs... but it's only making 35.7 PPD on this dog. Extrapolate over a week... or a month... talk about a big hit. Glad I have those QMD crunchers to offset these mutts.

</mr nice guy off>

I see you've got your swagger back - just in time, too, if you monkey boys intend on collecting my head in time for Christmas... I've been under the weather here these last few days so I didn't get to do any of the optimising I'd planned... but I still managed to put a bit more distance between us... :twisted:

Much more of this, and you're gonna need a compressed air potato cannon to fling any poo on me - the old hand grenade method just won't cut it. :mrgreen:

That's right Monster!

We're getting our machines back online so we're right behind you again!

P.S. You do NOT want a monkey standing behind you!
