I finally got my old A64-3200 up and running on its ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 mobo the other day thanks to a new DVD drive and having figured out the AGP card was the problem it was having, and yesterday it turned in its first WU. Today, its second. Got no credit until ~4.5 hours ago for both of them. If I keep getting that particular WU, though, which is a Project 3906 and good for 310 points, with the machine running at 2.2 GHz (the memory under cpu-z
says only 146 MHz instead of the stock 200, so I'll have to play with it to see how far I can make it OC...) and finishing in about 16 and 2/3 hours, that's a very pleasant extra > 400 PPD.
Eventually a week of its output will go to notfred
, though, and sooner or later I think I'll be giving the machine away.
: Though, looking at this adapter
, I'm strongly tempted to keep the machine and turn it into a cheap A64 X2
box with some cheap DDR2 and give away an older machine instead. (Or, since I'll still have the A64-3200, I can use another mobo and just stick a NIC in it and give that away... hmm.)
Hopefully final ninja edit
: Congratulations on your recent folding numbers and prowess, farmpuma
. You're going to rip past me fairly soon if I don't hurry up and do something about it.
