    BTW about the no gaming during the challenge to maximize 'dem points things...
    Running games is part of my job, so can I be exempt from this rule? :D

    Then your numbers will increase. FreeDC updates 3 times a day usually so you're likely to higher output :D

    Take some Holiday time!! :D
    Really though, you only game with one of your boxen so, I think, considering your Farm, you should be officially exempted from this rule. I'll run it past the rules committee.

    :roll:

    Let's call it a suggestion ;) If you were only running one rig and gaming seriously affects your ppd then I would call it a recommendation!

    I should stop folding on one of my rigs too but that ain't happening! :p

    7 hours to go before the start.... GO time is coming up fast!!!

    I want to start working on the Clean Energy Project. I have it selected as one of my contributions on the World Community Grid, but on the actual application I cannot select it as one of my projects works.

    When the Boinc Mgr connects, next time, it will update the settings you made on the WCG site. Allowing for your work cache, it will eventually drop one in for you. They are bigger and will make your computer run a little hotter, especially if that is all you are running.

    The CEP Challenge, a while back, tested the cooling fan on this UltraBook. I used a wood block to prop it up so it wouldn't burn up.

    So, one or two at a time should be fine. Good Luck and thanks for the help!!

    Click on Device Manager...
    [​IMG]
    Then Click on "Selected Profile", home in my case.
    [​IMG]
    Select Custom Profile...
    [​IMG]
    Scroll down,
    Pick everything, or the Project of your choice...
    [​IMG]
    Scroll down,
    Check memory usage and then network and then WU Cache. I used to use a 4 day cache, started getting in trouble with deadlines. Now I use 3 day cache and no problems. The 0.2, network connect, means it checks for a connection every 4.8 minutes. Which is fine for me since, when I am online, is is generally for more than ten minutes and BOINC will have updated by then.
    [​IMG]
    Scroll down,
    Here is the Clean Energy Project, special stuff. As I suggested earlier, start with two and then watch your temps. Then three, repeat, until you are comfortable with the temperatures and workload.

    I hope this helps?

    I have had mine running constantly since last week to spool up @4.6 (100.01) bus and temps on the water is sitting anywhere form 62-65 on all cores with fans on med speed.

    Nah, using my laptop right. Has an AMD APU, but its something.

    I have been at home since my spring break since i crashed my mountain bike, and had to get surgery on my elbow. Tore both the lcl and mcl in my elbow clean off, one of them got pretty destroyed, but they were able to repair it and re-attach to the bone.

    When I get back to school I am going to update my motherboard BIOS and try and get 4.4-4.5 stable on my chip with memory at 2400.
