Re: new server I'm building, enough power for SMP?

I knew someone would say that! :mrgreen:

Can't do that yet though, need to fully figure out my new gaming comp (see my thread in AMD Motherboards), then I can have my old 200GB ide drive for this thing.

Re: DFI am2 slowdown issues

Well, after unplugging all the drives and resetting the cmos, it's gone, so no it's trial and error, changing one thing at a time, adding one thing, till I can find the problem again. :P And the cpu settings are definitely correct, as the only thing I changed in the bios was the cpu multi, htt speed...

new server I'm building, enough power for SMP?

I'm building a file server, using a Tyan K8SD Pro (S2882-D) with two Opteron 242's (Sledgehammer core). I want to run folding on it (should give me more points than just the XP 1600+ I'm running now :roll: ), but I don't know if it'll be able to finish SMP wu's before their deadline.

Ideas?

Re: Each Reformat Yields New Problems

I've never been able to get DVI working with mine either (same screen), and I'm on a 8800 GTS. I'm not sure it's just an Ati problem... :|

Re: Moving a computer..

Indeed, do NOT put packing peanuts inside a computer. They create static, and imagine the amount of juice all of them rubbing around during shipping would create. Then remember it only takes one static charge to kill something. #-o

Peanuts=BAD [-X

Re: what are you folding with?

Only one atm, a Athlon XP 1600. It's the only one that's been folding for me for about four months now. :cry:

I have more to hook up to the network, I just never have time! :roll:

Socket A

Socket 754

Definitely not the same. A has 462 pins, and 754 has, well, 754 pins.

You can get Socket A cpu's on eBay, if you really want to keep you're motherboard, but I'd recommend upgrading to at least socket 939 or AM2. Google those for more info.

Being that your getting a memory dump, and that you just installed new memory, I'd run Memtest to check out all of your memory. Could be a bad stick.

I've got a 4 gig Zen (one of the little ones), and it's an awesome little guy. Big enough for my needs, although I will upgrade in time.

I even once dropped it in oily sludge, and after a week, it started working again! :mrgreen:

Just one question, is this for a laptop? Specifically, an IBM Thinkpad 600E? (The model number you gave is a clue...) If it isn't, and is a desktop, then ignore the following. I've done a lot of research into older laptops, and if it is a Thinkpad 600E, then that cpu won't work in it. P3 laptops use...
