    Don't run it in XP Mode, run it natively in Windows 7, XP mode isn't nearly as fast for CPU-intensive tasks. I don't know which client you installed, but you should install the x86_64 client (link). It gives about 10% better PPD than the x86 version. That i7 should be incredible for WCG (up to 4K PPD BOINC, 30K WCG, depending on what else you do with it). If you need any more info, check the Essentials thread in my sig

    I am running it in windows 7 while running it in Xp at the same time..SO now on the rig in the sig I have two WCG clients running one in Windows 7 one in XP mode and I have one F@H running in xp mode and one F@H running on GPU and one F@H running on Windows 7 CPU......
    I think XP mode is turning out better numbers than WIndows 7 is...AT least F@H CPU client is running faster in XP mode...not sure about WCG yet tho..:D
    I had to down clock to 3.8GHZ becuase all that goodness created a mini furnace of about 5000BTU...lolz

    Actually I was surprised that XP mode was turning out 30% more on my rig than windows 7 was....But indeed on my rig XP mode is faster than windows 7 with the CPU GUI by 30%.
    EDIT: at least wise while both are running simultaneously.

    Ok, I finally convinced my friend to crunch for WCG, but he set it up him and isn't crunching for a particular team. How can he join the TPU team? Does he have to go through the Bionic website?

    I've been lurking for a while and have decided to go ahead and join the fight. I'll be adding my C2D E8400 and Phenom X3 8450 to the arsenal. I'm sure if I could get my E8400 to 3.6GHz or so that it would put out a lot more, tiem to do some research :D

    Click My Team to join TPUs team # 22175, you may have to search with that number or by name, TechpowerUp.

    EDIT: I really rushed this and its been a while since I had to sign up with the website, but this should get him started, if not he can post up in the thread and the assistance can be much more specific.

    We run them all really. Human Pro. can cause issues with some computers, so if you see problems with those WUs, opt out of that project from WCG.com

    So basically you're only going to see problems with the Human Pro. Project if you're overclocked? I've been crunching on both of my stock-clocked rigs at for a few weeks now and have seen no errors as of yet.

    I think the vast majority of people who have had issues with these WUs are those that are OCed. Before going 24/7 I opted out as a preemptive measure. However there are times where I am assigned these WUs anyway and have had no issues OCed or not.

    So if you have had no issues keep crunching them, if you have errors opt out. Whatever you do Crunch Hard :rockout:

    Sidenote: Where has Mike047 been??

    Thanks for your awesome guide :toast:

    Just joined the TPU team :rockout:

    I have a one year old kid, and I hope to God he never never needs this research, but I also hope we can help other kids and many other people by finding a cure to their problems :)

    Special thanks to Ion for his suggestion ;)

    hello to all

    I have a little problem with Boinc manager ...

    like that

    12/16/2009 10:29:41 AM World Community Grid Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
    12/16/2009 10:29:41 AM World Community Grid Requesting new tasks
    12/16/2009 10:29:42 AM Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
    12/16/2009 10:29:42 AM World Community Grid Scheduler request failed: Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with known CA certificates
    12/16/2009 10:29:43 AM Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.


    yes the date is.... 2009 (I need that date to run a software...)

    so I open the ports 80,443,31416. same problem

    I also have an ideea it's posibile that Boinc Manager to generate same session key base on date tmie?

    any new ideea?
