    I change my above post, been up too long. Math and my brain aren't working together. I allowed half of my ram for the project so the rig wouldn't crash. Unless you have alot more ram than core's, I'd stick with that or close to it.

    You can run 8 without problem on your 2600K setup if it's dedicated to that project.

    I set It to unlimited but haven't checked how many it's picked up, I'll check when I get home and configure it.

    if you set to unlimited, you will just receive as many WU as it takes to fill up the work queue

    How can I specify an amount? I can set it to 4, but how will it get four and then four of any other project?

    It's all down to the way WU are sent by the server, so in theory it will be no different to any other project.

    The link below is probably the best place to go for information, the official thread on the project's WCG support forum:

    https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,30182

    (BTW, we should setup a TPU Team recruitment thread on the official WCG forums, who knows we might get new members..)

    Hmmm.

    I'll make a thread on that in the next day or so to discuss it. Could lead to something good. :toast:

    Looks like I won't be running exclusive on my computers with SSD. The heavy write/read on the drive is making me BSOD :mad:

    The disk-based crunchers are all fine though

    Think that's the problem on three of my crunchers too.:shadedshu

    This will be a challenging challenge for sure.

    Too bad we can't create custom profiles.

    Oh well, I set up the "school" profile to be optimized for the energy wu's. Think I forgot to set it to unlimited though - have to double check that.

    Then I set the 3 rigs I only crunch on (mostly) to the school profile. We'll see how it goes, but I really don't like those wu's.

    Hmmm I got a BSOD for code 124 yesterday again. Wonder if it had to do with my SSD...?

    Not sure. I got 09c which I know is for my SSD, firmware update should correct that. But then had a few 101's which are normally IO related. One of the crunchers is geting 124, suspect it's to do with the low vcore on that one though.

    In short, hard to say. These WU are a fair bit more resource heavy than the regular WCG ones.

    I just dropped to defaults. Consistency gets you farther than instability.
