    Seems really stable at 4.8ghz, the 3930k. It pushes my loop much harder as expected. With my fans at 100% at 4.8ghz I get 75c. I think that is as high as I will go. I have read that one can raise the bclk and lower multi for less volts needed. I might want to try that as it will produce less heat. Pics will be up tomorrow.

    I have a bit of a conundrum. My game Ns2 loves very high single threaded performance. The higher the cpu clock the better. I can get this 3930k stable at a very beastly 4.8ghz@1.4v but it uses a ton of power, like ~100 watts more than stock. I will be crunching 24/7 so every watt does matter to an extent. So I am wondering do I go to a nice low overclock of 4-4.2ghz undervolted, or compromise at 4.4-4.5ghz moderate volts, or extreme performance 4.8ghz.

    Can you set up profiles? Just switch to aggressive when gaming and go back to moderate or relaxed for 24/7.

    Yes, I can't upload right now, have several waiting. I just clicked update, and it did download another though. :mad:

    The issue is being reported on the WCG forums and their admins are checking it out now- hopefully it will be resolved later today.

    On another matter:

    When checking your stats please keep a close watch on what Team you're crunching for! A number of crunchers from other Teams are reporting an involuntary transfer to the Ripple Labs Team... this may be an instance of someone hacking accounts to steal ppd from other members. This issue is also being looked into by WCG admins. :shadedshu:

    I'm moblie atm but it would be helpful if someone could post the links to the threads at the WCG forum on the above items.

    Did someone hack my Name in your post? Why would someone hack TPU to repost a different name?

    I just noticed that Ripple Labs is at the top of the list in the daily numbers thread. Is this how they've been doing it all along?

    Must have done it in my sleep. All to increase my thanks count, of course. As soon as thanks points can be traded, I'll be rich, I tell you, RICH!

    They cannot crunch for money, AFAIK. BOINC points cannot be exchanged.

    If a third party were to track stats individually, it could be handled outside of BOINC. Even here, someone could (in theory) simply watch the Pie thread and say "Top 10 gets a dollar for every 10,000 points".

    After a quick google and six cells in a spreadsheet, it looks like Ripple has given away $1,860,082.00 USD at current exchange rates and is planning on giving away an additional $18,125.00 today (and seemingly every day).

    Ripple uses your BOINC ppd as a proof of "work done" and offers XRP, which is a form of cryptocurrency, for the work done.

    This takes the effort of donating your PC time for a good cause and replaces it with greed.... with the good cause as "justification". I'm not a fan of such a thing :shadedshu:

    Giving a reward would mean more science though. Some users here talk about powering up machines for competitions, but powering them back down afterwards due to power usage. A reward would negate those costs and, if large enough, encourage growth in computing.

    Don't get me wrong, it goes against a lot of what we believe (or at least what I think we believe) here that we're donating research, not exploiting a cause for profit.

    But as we've seen, it also encourages hacking and stealing others people's work because of greed. ;)

    True, sadly. As long as someone's making a nickel, there'll be someone there trying to take it for themselves.

    Looking at some of the top users in Ripple's team page, it's difficult to believe the amount of PPD they're generating was obtained legitimately.

    Edit: Here's some SFW car-equivalent of Hot Coffey to change the subject slightly. (Hot Octane?)

    Using your figures I estimated about $6 per day for my current ppd (rough calculation) that's before capital gains, commisions, fees, etc... the other side of the coin is I believe that you need to surrender access to your WCG account to Ripple while you're part of that Team*
    *that ain't happening!!! :wtf:

    Also, the net growth of WCG is largely unchanged from what I had seen- meaning that the only thing that really happened is one large Team formed from members of existing Teams (mostly) and if Ripple folds up, WCG output stands a chance of falling significantly
