Did I lose my WU?

I have a slow-ass Celeron 466 folding under Linux. I've set it so that it asks me before it attempts to use my net connection. Unfortunately, it's also running in the background, so I have to check FAHlog.txt every so often to see if it's done. I thought I could just kill the process when it was don...

Re: Apparently my PSU has been running Fanless for 3 weeks.

Or would I be tempting fate too much, and the PSU gods will smite me? Eventually, you will be smote. Nice to know that the Seasonic won't die (immediately) under those conditions, though. I have a 400w Tornado and I plan on modifying it with a 5v Papst, but even then I'm apprehensive about it since...

I have a Dell Inspiron 8100 folding 24/7. The fans are on about 80% of the time, which isn't too bad, all things considered.

Thank goodness I haven't had to take it in for servicing, though... I would hate to have to deal with Dell's support.

I'm with Joe on this one... I don't like how it's such a blatant ripoff of the G5. I might like it if the G5 never existed, but ripoffs inherently look cheap to me.

I do like the air channels, though.

Thanks again, Crisspy. I believe you when you tell me my case is probably not 2mm -- I have no real way of measuring except with a ruler, and you know that that's not going to be very accurate. :lol: Welp, a-cuttin' I will go. One last thing... how do you guys usually drill holes for the fan screws?...

Strange. I had coil whine from my Enermax when I plugged it into a Radeon 9700Pro and an Abit NF7-S nForce2 motherboard. Replacing it with a Seasonic Tornado actually fixed it.

I have a 1.13GHz P3 on a CUSL2 right now. Up until a few minutes ago, it was cooled by a noisy Thermaltake Golden Orb cooler. Under load (Folding@Home), temps reached 55-56C.

Sort of, but not really. ARM "owns" both the accounts, so I have no problem with it. Ideally, it would be nice to be able to consolidate accounts, but that's just not possible.
