    That's a cool set of HW you have going :toast:
    Even if it's just part-time, we'd love if you'd stick around :)

    Thanks-

    So far I am running on the 870 and the 570, not sure how many ppd or if I can set it up to be more efficient, still trying to figure all this out... LOL -- should be be running more then 1 wu on my 570?

    I have been thinking about doing this for awhile, so the contest gave me a good reason to get started... Hope to be able to stick around and add some more hardware someday!

    I get 40k PPD out of an i7-2700k with two GTX470s, so I'd expect you could get 20k from that setup. I'm running two WUs per GTX470, which I think is probably the best arrangement.

    I started out crunching for the contest, sadly I didn't end up winning anything =( but hey i'm still crunching, its surprisingly fun trying to get the most points :laugh: sadly its expensive. I can't afford new parts for more crunchers, that and it adds an extra $40 to my power bill...

    Well if I win something that will be cool, if not hey it is for a good cause!! so it is a win either way! :cool:

    The power bill is always what has kept me from doing this, so over the next month I can see how much it will go up, if it is not bad, then I will keep on crunching!

    BTW ION- Setup to run 2 WU on my 570 now, it seems to be doing well so far thanks for the tip.

    ALso, how do I know what my ppd is and my ppd per device is?

    Power bills can be kept down quite a bit by letting no high-end GPUs crunch, and letting e.g. only 1-3 cores of a multicore CPU crunch. Having only 1 system crunch, and maybe not 24/7 helps a lot as well.

    And checking with your electricity company when the offpeak times are, as the electricity is cheaper then, so you can schedule BOINC to run at those times.

    So, Hi all.:) To start I came here with the team hopping BASE CAMP a couple of years (2010?) ago and I was bored with team life at home (seriouscrunchers):shadedshu so came here on a fluke.:roll: BASE CAMP is not camping at the moment.:banghead: Will be here for the campaign then?????????????????? Depends on the cooking and the beer. Everybody enjoy the contest.:toast: If I do win anything I hope it is Hardware. I don't game much so may roll those back into the pot.I turn every thing into a cruncher.

    Hi all, I'm reading the Ion's WCG Essentials Thread and I will start crunching for TPU very soon.
    Too bad I have a crappy pc but I hope by the end of this year having another computer for 24/7 crunching only.

    Welcome to TPU! :toast:
    I hope you're finding the thread useful :)

    Let us know if we can help--your PC may not be a six-core i7, but with the HD7770 you can run GPU WUs and still make a very sizable contribution ;)
    Chevalr1c and JNUKZ say thanks.
