I am running Seti right now
at the end it was saying overclock your processor
but i mean
Is this just for fun or game or what
I understand the point of looking for new life and all
but.. why waste our money to search these things quicker?
Nothing is in it for us..?
Do you honestly feel like burning your processor out by overclocking it to run this faster?
i Oc'd my duron 800 the bus to 236 and i go 950 Mhz
my cpu temp jumped to 50
i took off my tower side panels and all
and its at 44 now
this sure uses a lot of processor.
Maybe explain to me whats the BIG hype?
It's the typical male "mine is bigger" competition. In this case we are talking about our computers. If you only have one fast computer at home you might be slower than a guy with 2-3 computers.
We are three guys in the BetelNut team that join forces to crank out more units than others, within the team we urge eachother to spend loads of money on upgrades.
We are having a great time tweaking our systems and bringing up more systems.
Ps. Michael... where is that new TBird by the way...
Hay it is what being a computer geek is all about. Tweeking out my computer is fun for me. It is like guys who work on there cars and tune them to no end. Why? because it is fun. Seti is a race to show off your computers.
Hey. Shhhh . . . don't let on or they might kick me out of the club. Hell they may even chnge the secret hand shake but I use my PC too. Not promise not to tell but I even shut it off when playing games. I had it off for long periods of time when ripping DVD's too. Actuall I use SETI Driver and can set it to a low priority and still run whatever I want adn it won't get in the way.
Michael, I just picked up another TBird, this time a cheap 850 only. My Abit BH6 (with Celeron 466) blew up last week so I've really lost a lot in productivity, but the TBird 850 should make up for this. I used to make 11.4wu's/day but I expect that I can get 13 wu's per day with the new TBird.
Got: TBird 1.08GHz, TBird 850Mhz (will overclock to GHz+), Duron 600, P3 600, Celeron 563 and running Seti Driver under WinME.
