    So changing the priority on explorer.exe really didn't accomplish anything so I snoozed BOINC and discovered TerrariaServer was taking 12.5%. I told them to shutdown and they refused. I ended up killing all three instances of Terraria Server and restarting them. BOINC is running again at 100% and Windows is responsive. And now I remember why TerrariaServer did what it did: by default it runs at high priority. That one process taking up one logical processor was stealing all of the processor's attention. I really, really, REALLY wish they'd patch TerrariaServer to run at normal priority. Having a game server run high priority makes about as much sense as a swimming suit at the South Pole in the height of winter.

    Click your user name at the top right of this page, the click preferences, you will see the line to enter your wcg user name. Also it won't show until you hit 100k points.

    Oh and welcome to the team Durvelle. Now you can really test your Overclock for stability LOL. This is how it works with overclocking and crunching. If you can crunch for a few days and not be unstable and (this is the important part) not generate errors in wu's you have a very stable rig. My 8350 has been at 4.4 for well months under air crunching it's whole life. Stable as a rock. I have a h100 for it and will get it installed next week. Then I may push the overclock up some to compensate for the x58 rig that just decided it didn't want to live anymore.

    You haven't setup to submit completed wu's immediately have you? If not you can look at the progress page and you will see computation error beside error-ed out wu's. But I think if your building points this fast your good. Your already up to 67th place in the team so far today. You'll break top 30 easy.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    On the client that you have running on your rig. On the page that shows the wu's running. any that are done that errored out will have error beside them. Also you can check on wcg page. Under result status. once on the result status page you will see a drop down menu beside result status. toggle "error" the click the filter button. it will show any errored wu's there. But like I said, if your building points as fast as you are and still early in the spool stage your good. It can take 3 to 5 days to fully spool up and saturate the pendings pile.
