    With the last update, here are the daily output for both teams so far. Not looking good for us.

    BOINC@Poland - 242,337 Points
    TechPowerUp! - 241,817 Points

    Gotta hope we have a great update later today!

    Hmm, am I the only one that only, at any time, has ONE of these WUs in the queue? I think that there is some kind of limitations due to high memory usage, but a very short queue will at least facilitate one or two per thread per day.

    Edit: See http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2534658&postcount=14405 for how to run more CEP2 WUs

    I don't do these wu's any more. They tend to hang up even my overclocked 2600k.

    edit: the alternative is not to run when I'm on the machine and I lose too much time that way. I guess I could look into setting up individual profiles. IDK.

    That should work fine. I've never done it but will this time.

    I'm trying to build up a backlog of these WUs but with the short notice it's not easy on running rigs. I will, at some point, add some fresh blood with plenty of WEP2 in the mix. We will have a slow start (until F150 see this) and then have a nice sprint finish.

    Are there any limitations to how many of these you can run at the same time?

    I can report that all my rigs now have the CEP2 WU's but no rig is running more than one.

    You need to manually set it to allow more. Not sure if you saw my post a little earlier on how to remove that limit:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2534658&postcount=14405

    CEP2 has larger than normal requirements including 250MB RAM per WU and connection speeds, so by default it's limited. If system meets requirements and the WU limit is removed, then you can go full on with CEP2 if it's the only project enabled.

    Yupp I saw your post and removed the limitations but I have not removed other projects so I'm running all of them exept the HPT2 that gives me errors on all the rigs. Might have to wait a bit before they kick inn, do you think I should just run the CEP2 now i February?

    Ah, sorry misunderstood. :eek: If you have the other projects still selected then yea it will feed it proportionally with the other projects.

    The challenge is for most amount of runtime on the CEP2 project though. So during the challenge period, running it exclusively would definitely yield the most results for team.

    Don't think points matter though, the contest is just for runtime

    I created some new profiles, all the hpcloud servers are only going to run cep2 only, my 4 I7's will run 3 max at a time, the sr-2 will run 6 max at a time, and the quad G34 rig will run 16 max at a time. Will see how it works out.:rockout:

    I know but the Team and I also want maximum points, don't we?

    Yes, but if we are in a contest that is based on run time, I think it's better to prioritize that for the time being. I mean, it's all up to the user how they want to configure their PC.

    I am curious however to know how they do as far as points, I personally don't know.

    I'll do like you F150 and make a profile for each rig, how many CEP2 you guys think a 2600K with 8GB ram can do at the same time? 4? 6?

    I agree so I'll set it up now, still need another projeckt or two to fill up the rest of the CPU's.
    Acctually I think running with only two is the best way to do this corrcet me if I'm wrong.:)
    Which project has the smallest footprint in ram?

    Each one running uses or needs a gig of ram. You have enough ram, I'd say 4to be safe if you use the rig alot, 6 if it only crunches and does nothing else.

    CEP2 has 10hr WU more or less on 2600K. Points are relatively low compared to other projects like HCC with 2hr WU and DSFL and GFAM which are very well optimized. Daily numbers will definitely take a small hit.

    Anything running linux is gonna wipe the floor with windows for runtime :laugh:

    If you have 3GB+ you can run CEP2 on all 8 cores. One of my i7's actually manages on 2GB, but it's set to use all ram available.

    HCMD2 is listed as the project with least RAM use (64MB), followed by HCC (250MB) which also has the fastest WU completion times (besides these damn <1hr Beta WU)

    Both SR-2's and 2600K's are dedicated crunchers only the mediaserver and my lappy that are used for other things. Got 12GB and 24GB ram on the SR-2's and 4gb and 8gb on the 2600K's, so maybe 8, 16, 2 and 4 should be ok?
