I am not that much more north than you. Wyoming must be plain cold.
I heard there was snow up in Wyoming this past weekend.
Where are you at man? Thing is, Cheyenne is at 6062 ft.
Yep, there was snow up in the Big Horn mountains last Monday. That is about 300 miles north of me.
I am northwest of you nearing the Canadian border. If my geography is remembered correctly we share yellow stone. I am at 2300ish elevation just on the cusp of the rocky mountains.
Snow last Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I get how some people say that as Canadians were all living in Igloo's and beating seals to death. But snow in August takes the cake! Even the northern most parts of the country. Yep Igloos melt in the summer. Thing is I live in what we call the valley in Nova Scotia at an elevation of (ha hemm) 102 feet. Surrounded by the ocean with warmer temps coming up from the U.S. eastern seaboard it usually doesn't snow until a week before Christmas. New Brunswick next door has the bay of Fundy to the east but they get snow while it rains here from the same system. You poor buggers. It is going to be 29 degrees on Fri. For you southern gentlemen that's 84 F.
James888 if your anywhere near Alberta or Saskatchewan then I feel your pain. I have friends working in the oil fields there and it can reach 48 below while it is 8 below here.
I won't say exactly, but you're close enough just too far south.
Hmmm, Could this be from the OC? 1st time I've seen that error.
Yeah, with that project it is usually an unstable system being the cause.
So quick question. How do I tell if I am getting the best performance for crunching. This may be a broad question but other than than my oc, are there any tweeks for decreasing the time it takes etc. Maybe there is a guide I can be pointed to. Any help would be great.
There are breakdowns by cpu available in a few places...
Here are the cpu's in our Team:
Here are the cpu's for all of WCG:
*note- use average credit per cpu for comparing
Alright everyone. Today is the day I shut down the pc for the final move to our new place in the stix. I will leave it on as it is the last thing I will move.( I do have to swaddle it in a blanket after all).
The work pc is still crunching for the weekend but after about 5 or 6 hrs the main one will be gone until wed night. We have an appointment for hookup then, here's hoping they show......................?
Good luck in staying over the 3 million mark. Till Wednesday . Ooooh! whats that on the floor? Crunch crunch crunch.
You could increase your buffer to download some extra work now, which the rig could still work until you get your connection back.
Edit... Hmmm, I just noticed, it lists my Dual Core i5, with 4 Logical cores w/HT, as a Single core? Why be 'Dat?
You have the only i5-3317U processor on the team is what it's saying.
Crap! If I had of caught this earlier I would have asked how. I am at work picking up a bigger truck and thought I would check in on how the work pc is doing making out with Boinc. Honestly I had no idea I could do that.
It's ok. You will be fine. Finish your move, that is stressful enough! We'll see you at work and then again on Wednesday. No worries, Bud!!
Well, I finally figured out why my Coolit Evo cooler for the 4790 was acting so terrible!
I'm really surprised because I'm never that bad at mounting a cooler. I would have remounted sooner, but to do it requires taking apart the whole case, removing the mobo tray and then the mobo since it's a smaller mATX case, and that's just too much work.
Anyway, I replaced the Coolit with an H80i reburb unit that I snagged of the Egg on the cheap, and it looks very good and practically new
So now the Coolit will be moved over to the i3 to replace the stock HSF.
Maybe some lapping is in order.
I'm not sure. I'm going to install it on the i3 and see what happens. If the temps are atrocious, obviously there's an issue with the bottom of the cooler. Honestly I don't think that's the problem; I'm going to blame myself on bad mounting.
Now I can say the H80i is a nice cooler as it's doing a swell job with the i7. However, I must say that the fans are too loud for my liking. In the near future, I'll be looking to replace them with some other high static pressure fans that are quiet, maybe some more AP14s or so.
Contact? Pft, we don't need no stinkin' contact...
Anyone remember this?
