    2 of 3 crunchers where down for part of the day. I'm surprised I got as much as I did. The 1ghz core on the 6870s is a nice boost though. Two stale GPU WUs got stuck, I went to abort them and my rig reset.

    Although top-5 is requiring...a bit more than 25k PPD these days. It wouldn't surprise me if top-5 required 50k+ PPD soon ;)

    I would never imagined being able to get a slice of pie with just one cpu (and two gpu's). I remember a couple years ago when I had 5 i7 920's and was getting around 25,000 ppd. Man how the times have changed!

    Yeah, it's amazing. On the one hand, this means we're doing probably double the research for WCG, which is amazing, don't get me wrong, but I do also sort-of long for the "old days" when it took a large farm. Either way, we're doing amazingly as a Team! :toast:

    Can someone please explain to me WTF is going on with the scores? I'm running a pretty steady 7500-9000 point a day, which was usually placing me in 13th to 14th spot. I check the scores for yesterday, and I'm not even in the top 20, yet I still scored in my usual range. Then I see HammerOn say
    I have two I7 cpus running, plus I have a HD7970 and a GTX 560 in those systems and I have the option for GPU computing checked. Why are my scores not increasing like everyone elses? Why am I not scoring like everyone else? WTF am I doing wrong?

    I somehow missed that sorry man. Did you set to use gpu in your profile on WCG's site not just in the client running on your rig.?

    Are you getting the wu's?

    There's a check box in the BOINC manager as well as the WCG website and you need to run the HCC wu's

    The 7970 should chew through those wu's at like 20k ppd!

    Yes I did. And I just rechecked too make sure.

    Haven't been able to find a check box in the bionic manager concerning GPU and can you explain what you mean by HCC wu"s

    Make sure your profile is set to run the "Help conquer cancer" wu's along with whatever you have currently. The help conquer cancer wu's are now the Hcc gpu units.


    Edit actually you should just only need to check the :if my computer can process work on my grpahics card"

    Okay on that page click device manager and then click whatever profile you are using for those rigs. Get me a screen shot like the bottom one norton just posted.

    Apparently Hcc doesn't need to be checked off. LOL As I am doing the wu's anyway with it being unchecked.

    You need to go into that profile ans see what is check for as options. Gpu may not be check in there. I run custom profiles because have a a deverse selection of rigs and they react differently to different projects. My piles o' junk are not as deverse as the where 6 months ago but I still need atleast 2 profiles and may be going to need 3.
