Re: Cleaning TRUE?

Thanks for all the contributions! In the end I gave the TRUE a blast from a can of compressed air I had lying around. That would have worked in isolation. Sadly, adding two new WD20EZRXs showed the power supply was dying. So I have decided to retire this rig entirely. Seven years ain't bad. I shall ...

Cleaning TRUE?

Recently opened my P182 for the first time in several years. Dirty doesn't begin to describe the fans! But there was a good deal of cruft on the fan side of the TRUE cooler, as well. Google seems to think that cleaning the TRUE has never been discussed in this forum. So three questions: 1. Has anyon...

Re: Impactics C3LH-B experience

My ambient has a ceiling of about 32. After that I turn on the air-conditioning in the bedroom next to my study. This morning the ambient was 26. My current idle is about 13/14 over ambient. That's with the CPU fan spinning about 760. I ran a long (90 minute) development batch of AftershotPro2 this ...

Dont forget the passkey!

One thing I forgot to mention, but you may already know, Cordis, is that you have to take a passkey. When I was previously folding, up to late 2008 when I left ADSL-land, this was given out as being unnecessary; but you won't get your bonuses unless you have a passkey.

No killawatt = No statistics

Aristide

I haven't been able to find a source for a killawatt here in The Netherlands, so I can't answer ATM. Perhaps one of the native Dutch speakers who are following this thread could point me in the right direction?

But 62c still sounds high ... is that with a stock cooler?

You did not include the S-Flex fans in this shoot-out. Would you like to comment on the reasons for this? According to Scythe specifications, they are quieter, RPM for RPM, as the winning Slipstream models - 20.1dB vs 24dB for the 1200 rpm variants.

If you install the linux SMP, you would do so inside the VM. It would not interfere with, nor be interfered with by, the Windows GUI client.
