Pummeled by Tinkers

I have p638 tinkers on all of my computers, two PCs and two Macs. This is the first time I've gotten a Tinker on a mac, let alone two. So my stats stagnate as I'm in day 3 of this awful Tinker storm.

I'm about to be passed by 4 people, and my threats list went from empty to full.

:(

All of my processors are going to:

You'll see there are 3 active processors, but no points

all of the points are here:

What's up with that is:
I don't actually have any active usernames under ArtCubed :P All of my machines have the username Artcubed...somehow everything got switched over to ArtCubed on EOC/dyyryath's stats.

How that happened is a whole 'nother question, one which I can't answer.

Hopefully this will fix itself when he switches the system over (click "IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ" for more info on the list of teams page...and we're set, so don't e-mail the guy.)

If not, then I'll e-mail him to have it fixed.

ArtCubed is the accurate one (I think...), in place 151 at the moment, which will chance rapidly as I now have 3 computers/4 processors (got the Dual G5 running overtime now) to fold with.

And yes, it was fun passing myself again. I passed TheMuffinMan as Artcubed, and then passed as ArtCubed again.

A) Is there any airflow at all? If you don't have any fans in the system, it may be the northbridge...I would also check the memory (RAM). It also may be getting too hot B) VIA showed a video, where they ran a C3 with nothing at all on it (in terms of heatsink/fan), and it didn't crash after 24 hour...

My Athlon 1800+ w/SSE seems my P4 2.0 senseless - it pumps out way more than the P4. But I just plugged both of them in (WU's started within 10 mins of each other), and got similar WU's, and the P4 is expected to finish about 4 hours before the Athlon - so there ya go.

They're little silicone gaskets and silicone washered fan screws (they make 'em in various sizes and for power supplies) and they are great!
