IE woes

One of my computers just sat there, chugging away at units and attempting to send them every 30 minutes. Every time it would attempt to send, my network would blow apart.

In my fanless watercooling setup, I used two externally-mounted transmission oil coolers (each about the size of the side of the PC) When the summer month temperatures exceeded 95F, I would set a room fan to blow on the radiators, ensuring a cool processor.

I have two computers, each with multiple processors. As the previous poster noted, you need to run each of the processes in its own directory. You also need to run the console setup program. The setup program will ask you the process number. The first process is 1, the second is 2, etc. You will als...

My external radiator watercooling setup has been running for about half a year now. The only fan in the case is slow 80mm fan in the PSU. Constantly runs either games or folding@home for 100% CPU usage.

My original design for a passive radiator was similar to the Zalman design, but I had to scrap it because of cost (too much machining) I eventually decided to make one use two truck transmission coolers, which works extremely well.

I have an Enermax EG651 that I am using in a dual Intel 2.8, as soon as I got it, I yanked out the 92 mm fan and taped over the hole. The 80 mm fan on the outside moves very slowly and produces little noise.

Look at the stats more closely, there are people that have gone up 32 ranks today by turning in -613 points. So, unless negative points are worth far more than positive points, the stats system is broken.
