    Sounds like it's boot looping... some Z68 boards are apparently infamous for it, my Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 had a bout of that a while back but it's been ok fo a while now (knocks wood)

    Some info on it here:

    Fixed! :)

    I'm in. I just went back to work today (I only work during the school year these days) so I fired up the work Quad core this morning, and tonight I also fired up the other 2 crunchers I have at home. That should add 16 more crunching cores for me.

    That's exactly what it is doing @Norton . Unplugged the power cord and 24 pin connector and cleared the CMOs, the board is working again. Let's see how reliable it is during the challenge.

    Darwin is in on all fours. I do not think I can make Edison (Athlon II X2) ready in time for this challenge, but I will try.

    As, that's too bad. :cry: I know we were counting on you for this challenge, but there's there's always next time. Also, it seems like a lot of us will be out of town this weekend ;)


    That's pretty awesome! :respect:

    I thought I asked this, but do we need to crunch under our own names for this? Or can we crunch under Kreij. How will tracking work if we do?

    while I'm not the team Captain, I would imagine a simple PM to Norton telling him the name of the PC you have running under Kriej's name would allow him to check for that PC name running under Kriej's name on the WCG page. I just looked and currently there are 7 computers with results returned in the past 3 days under Kriej's name.

    Challenge-wise: I'd say it doesn't matter what name we crunch under, as long as we are under TPU.

    Now prize-eligibility-wise: I think it would still work out. Usually xx number of points qualifies you for a prize, but since may of us have rigs under Kreij, I think @Norton will clear it up for us.

    We shall see :laugh:

    You can use any TPU Team members account providing you have the name/password and permission from the account holder. Tracking can be done per machine if necessary.... I don't expect any issues tho :)

    *Hint- I'm the account holder for the Kreij account... if you want to crunch on it but haven't done so previously please PM me. Note that I would prefer that only current Team members use it but exceptions can be made on a case by case basis ;)

    Reminder!

    If you start a new rig or join a new account you will only get a small batch of work initially. Once that batch is completed you will receive normal batches of new work.

    Please keep this in mind as you prep your rigs for GO time! ;)

    Just got done texting my brother through BOINC setup. Actually he had it installed still from the last challenge, just had to tell him how to allow new tasks.

    So his 4670k is up and crunching too! :D

    15 hours until Challenge start!!!

    Time to make sure all of your rigs are ready to go and/or going.

    Spread the word- make sure everyone knows that we start at 0:00 GMT on 8/28

    Will try to get the prize post(s) going tonight- been pretty busy at work lately so I'm a couple of days behind :oops:
