Spots #2, 3, & 4 are close!
Think that's a mid-day update. Normaly by end of day we'll be more spread out. Like yesterday: 60, 50, 40 and 30K's
Hoping to reach the 50's sometime in february
Keep me in mind Dan.
Is the video up yet?
I'm both happy and sad that I can't break the top 10.
Its ok, I doubt I will ever come near even the top 20 LOLz
For comparison, I got plenty of cherry pie with my single i7 920. Go figure How much more we've stepped it up!
How many systems does F150_Raptor have!?
6 - http://boincstats.com/stats/host_stats.php?pr=wcg&st=0&userid=756415&active=1 His top CPU (four CPU system) is the most productive single board in WCG.
Dang. So in doing WCG is it tax refundable? I swore I read something like that somewhere.
I had done it while I had my first i7 system for a little while and then I moved. Never got back into it.
If it were (in my country) I be would looking on a nice check soon. I don't know the tax laws in US but how cares - crunch on
Damn four 12 core CPU's pumping out 23K PPD
Yes, nice numbers, but sort of a waste of CPU-power. His 4P system would do 15-20 times more "work/points" then a i7 920 in folding but only 5-6 times in WGC. WCG do not have a bonus system for fast systems (draw of luck, Integer Speed (ops/sec) combined with which CPU your wing-man have) where as folding (running Linux and big-beta) will grant the points purely based on the time you spent on the WU. 150 did fold before and did a fantastic job there but he chose to do WCG and with the GFLOPS he has he of course takes the lead here as well.
[F150 HW Fanboy] F150's Opteron server works out the same efficiency as 2600K's so running costs/ppd it's actually a great machine to have. Of course initial cost is a little higher than the equivalent overclocked 3.X 2600K systems. But ultimately he needs less space, and running stock he doesn't have to worry about BSOD #124 like the rest of us Plus 23K.. will be a while before any single desktop can get near that so...

Todays Pie and Top 20 (As of 4:00PM EST Time)
OMG I made # 20!! I guess I can eat my own words.
Sure F150's rig does a fantistic job at crunching. My point was that (points wise) it would do an even better job at folding. I respect F150's choice of work, and just hope he will keep up the great work.
Sorry I lost my senses thinking about all those cores. Was more a general rant on my part about WCG efficiency than a direct reply to your quote. But yeah, definitely the returns on F@H with bonus system reward that system better. At the end of the day both projects have similar goals so it's good he's chosen to participate on both. He doesn't get Pac-Man here though
Never say never
BSOD # 124? Sounds familiar! Glad that's fixed now.
Todays final Pie
Great work Team.
Woot! I'm back into the 6,000+ ppd range.
Hope to get back in the top 20 today! I need to OC my 4200+ alittle to see if I can get a boost Also need to switch over to 64 bit OS on that machine.
Hey guys I just notice something last week when I install the latest version of WCG on to my Q9550 that I couldn't find the WCG x64 installer.. Did they combine the new installer x86/x64? If not can someone link me to the x64 windows executable file? Thanks!
Not that I'm aware of. This is the current x64 Recommended version: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_6.12.34_windows_x86_64.exe
Probably worth bookmarking the full list page which gets updated regulary including linux versions: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php
