    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys my pie days are over. I am going to shut down some rigs as I have other things I want to do right now. Keep up the good work.

    I'm sorry to hear about that :(

    How much downsizing are you doing?

    I am probably going down to 2 or 3 crunchers. I will keep my gpu rigs going.
    Thank you buddy :toast: I am not going to shut all the rigs down just most of them.

    Well, the GPUs do the bulk of the work anyways. Whatever you can keep running is greatly appreciated, and I wish you luck in your future endeavors.

    Still, it's hard to see a Teammate downsize :cry:

    Ah those rigs aren't really doing that much anyways. I need the space for some other projects right now.

    I noticed i got some pie, Damn i am shocked never thought i would be up there with the rest of you :) wish i could break 100k but i don't think this pc quite has the power hehe. Already got cpu at 4400mhz and gpu at 950mhz although it will run at 1000mhz so maybe i will try push it another 50mhz.

    Be careful when pushing your hardware too far- you may get errors in your results or BSOD's if you overclock too much.

    I've found WCG stability to be about 10% below max overclock compared to gaming, etc... ;)

    Been running flat out for days no shutdowns or blue screens and i haven't noticed any unusual things in boinc event viewer, I will test it for an hour with my GPU @ 1000Mhz and see if it reports anything funny.

    The only error i see is this but its been doing this since day one when using the XML file.

    I'll never be too high with my pie (oh how poetic) but today it's been running for about 6-7 hours non stop. Should be a decent total.

    I live on this PC, so tomorrow will be gaming day - no crunching :(
    t_ski is unassailable! :toast:

    EDIT: just to add to Norton post above. I've had random shutdown's while running BOINC. Just had one there. These only started after i started crunching so my 4.2 GHz cpu overlock must be marginally unstable or the gpu clocks are (but they're factory overclocked at 1050 and 1010).

    I get that error too, no biggie.
    I noticed that you're also running a 7970 like me :). In gaming I can run my cards at like 1125+ stable, but while crunching I couldn't get it stable higher than 1000 core. I'm currently running both cards at 1000, and it's run for days without a driver crash. (Windows 8 is something else)

    I hope you can run at 1000! :toast:
    I'd think your driver would crash first if it were only the gpu being just a little too much, but yeah check that out for sure.

    Numbers at BOINCstats for daily results is way off today .... I pulled in around 85k according to the WCG website :shadedshu Hopefully the results will balance out over the next few days???

    AFAIK I can't access individual team members ppd direct from the WCG website- would be the most accurate way to do it though.

    No worries, but thanks for the explanation. I think yesterday it said I was over 200k, today 99k... haha, it's all good. We can hope for freeDC to be back soon :) What's important it that we are still doing a great job!

    :confused:

    From Tuesday night when i set it up to start (was cpu only then) and for Wed-Fri my work done was 60000. On Saturday alone (GMT) my work done rose to 115000. Yesterday it was running for about 7-8 hours, 8 work units almost constantly.

    So in one day i almost equaled my previous 3 1/2 days worth of crunching.

    Here's hoping that reflects in the next piece of pie! :D

    In fact , here's the WCG stats for me so far.

    For those that like the bunny, it's based off Japanese manga: Cat Sh*t One. Linking it might be against forum rules, so google or PM me if interested in an awesome 20min episode

    Great work :toast:

    So i decided to put my overclock back to normal to cut down on some heat and fan noise at night, Woke up this morning to find the pc had blue screened lmao, Should have left the stupid thing overclocked as it had been running 4 or 5 days without problems.
