LOL I fell 330 points from top 20 spot!
NO SHITE!!!! My I7 2600K and 860 sometimes is only good for 20th. And I was hoping the addition of the 860 would be good enough to bounce in and out of the top ten.
Now see if I can keep it close to there without the new rig.
you'll get there buddy. I can feels it.
Two i7s is very solid. I found that with two i7s and two C2Ds I could bounce in and out of the top-10, but it's taken a third i7 to keep my consistently there. Hopefully the fourth will keep me consistently top-5
We'll have to see about that
My one 2600K is getting 5500-6500PPD on average which is not too bad
Why don't you also crunch on the 2600k in your system specs? Surely that would help too, even if you also game on it
My i7-950is still not putting out points. It's running fine and reporting fine, no errors. Have no idea what it can be!
Can you go the Results Status page and get a screenshot of the completed WUs it's done? Also, can you get a screenshot of the Device Statistics page for it? Perhaps we can figure something out
It would draw WAY too much power due to the 6950 Xfire
If you're only running on the CPU, it shouldn't be too bad. KieX said that my 2700k @ 4.5GHz drew 150w AC with a GTX570 idle
Oh but those 6950's would do great with the betas.
Time for Pie!....
Are you in our Top 20?
Or Almost There?
Spoiler: Positions 21 thru 30 Today
Some Cute Lions Today!!!
Congrats to All of our Crunchers!!!
Great job top 30
Great job guys--Norton and MaD_ShOt, in particular, you guys are on fire!
Thanks Ion. I still have some wiggle room with a couple of the rigs. And another rig in the process. My goal is as close to 25k ppd as possible with my rag tag fleet.
25k PPD would be pretty sweet. I'm thinking with my i7-920 I'm going to be at ~20-21k PPD or so. My goal is somewhere around 25k, so I may add an AMD FX-8 later this year. We'll see how things turn out
Nothing under pending validation nor error, just this under valid. I notice each WU says about five hours to complete. All cores are getting used at 100%.
I will just quietly move my way to the top 10.
My first impression is that looks OK. I'm not running most of those projects ATM, but the times look about what I'd expect for an i7. It looks like you'll be pulling ~3.6k PPD or so, which is low (I get 4.5k PPD from an i7 @ 3.4), but not extraordinarily so (given that I don't know what speed you're running at).
I was actually hoping for a screenshot of a few days worth of records on the Device Statistics page for the i7-950 (so I can make sure that it's doing reasonable runtime/points each day).
Not that quietly.... WE see you!
@CP- you should check all of your setting in power management, BOINC manager, and WCG profiles.. seems as if you're working on 1 core and only for a very small portion of the day. Wondering if there's a downclocking/power saving feature in Win8 or in the BIOS that needs adjustment or if the work when idle setting in BOINC manager is not seeing idle for some reason. Is it manually set to run always?
CP, also check that the date-time in the bios and in windows are correct. You went from 1 to 2 days per wu to be completed, to 10 to 12 days before completion.
Good points there.
That's why I was hoping to see how many hours of WUs it's been doing/day...a lightly used i7, from my experience, should do ~7 days 22 hours or so a day. Obviously it will vary a lot, but it should average out to just under 8 days/day. Something much less would indicate that BOINC isn't working right.
I hadn't noticed that
Al cores are utilized 100%, that was the only page of results actually. Date and time are set correctly and power saving features are all disabled.
I do notice everytime I open the "tasks" tab and it's always running the Clean Energy project. Those WU's are taking five to eight hours to finish. Could it be that?
Nah, that's OK. I've found that the CEP2 WUs can take up to 10 hours each on my i7s. They're long.
It seems very strange that that is the only page of results. How many days of crunching time/day is it getting?
24/7 @ 100% load.
