    ^^So I have to pull an all nighter.

    Yes Seti-G has 287 active users and only a few of them uses GPU. We would lose big time on CPU power alone.

    I just brought everything I have here up and running...... I should be able to pull in another 10-15k ppd.

    Considering "borrowing" my son's laptop for another 2c/4t but I don't think the wear and tear from crunching on it for 2 days will bring that much to the Team :ohwell:

    Don't underestimate laptops. I have one that have done close to 1.2 M. Ok the back plate is off and I have a big fan 2" away. Ion is running one 24/7 too I think. But I wouldn't use other peoples (son's) laptop for the noble cause. :)

    So I'm down to running on my 2600k only, and I feel so slow. I guess this is the real cruncher life; I was spoiled starting out. I'm now doing things other than just HCC though, which is nice I guess. I do feel though that HCC was perfect because I've had more family members fight, struggle, and lose to cancer than anything else I can think of, put together. Sucks!
    Anyway, I suppose that til the gpu WUs are back in full force, I'll be just putting along. The only plus side is I'm back on my Windows 8 installation, which is nice to be on again. :toast:

    2600K is no slouch in WCG ;)

    Keep a watch out for more gpu wu's to appear.... maybe WCG will rollout a beta for gpu's to test some aspect of them for another project. There are quite few crunchers on the WCG forum following the gpu threads atm and a lot of them want their wu's back. :twitch:

    I have one rig left running them, and it won't last long. Went to WCG and enabled all projects for now.

    Three, actually. A Core 2 Duo Dell, a Core 2 Duo Thinkpad, and my new i7 Thinkpad. Both of the C2Ds do just fine--but the i7 does run a bit warm.
    Thanks for the update :toast:
    I'm really hoping that it's more towards the 1 day than the 1 week...oh well. I'll switch the i7-920 over to other projects when it runs out of WUs tomorrow :ohwell:

    I have 2 laptops that I may still run- both have 2 core/4 thread CPU's

    Older one (2010)
    Core i3-350M w/AMD dedicated gpu
    Newer one (2012)
    Core i5-3210M w/NV dedicated gpu

    Have no idea how well they would crunch???

    I pull about 1k PPD/C2D and just shy of 4k from my i7. I'd say you should get a bit over 2k from the i5--not counting the GPU. A tad less from the i3-maybe 1.6-1.8k

    What are the GPUs?

    All parents in the world seem to hide the gifts to children in the closet (me too):laugh:


    Jokes aside, Seti-Germany has a chance to win.
    EDIT:
    I've borrowed daughter's dual-core, son's dual-core and wife's dual-core notebook.
    I'm afraid it will do little.:mad:

    Shhhh!.... don't tell them :D:laugh:

    Agreed that SG has a chance to win but remember this:
    - We rocked their world for nearly 5 days of this challenge
    - We did what we did with 1/3 of the active members they have
    - If they want it, they will have to earn it.
    - They are not Team TPU so we win.... Automatically! :toast:

    Remember:
    -we do not have two Ion's crunchers
    -our Team's ppd before starting GPU WU was (Shhhh!).
    –°orrect me, if I forgot something.
    Anyway we have no right to give up.:toast:

    Thanks for adding those new dual-core rigs, I appreciate it :)
    We've done an amazing job for a team our size :toast:
    Unfortunately so. I'm down to two i7s now and that's it :ohwell:
    But we still have a bunch of pending GPU WUs that will buffer us for a little while :)

    Even if we don't hold them off, the push we gave in the last month or so with the amount of active members we have is just remarkable. Definitely something I know rocked the DC world!

    Man that sucks! :( Hope the delay is not too long.

    This Vishera vs Bulldozer feels like the PII Thubans felt vs the PII Denebs (the C2 revisions)...much smoother/snappier performance and cooler running :toast:

    FYI- I will also have at least one laptop crunching tonight (probably the newer one). Needs to be "tested" right? ;)
