soo how many rigs were in that box?
Big box on the botom had 3. Middle box had 2. Rest were single systems in single boxes (ran out of big boxes).
man, thats a lot of rigs
I have 9 computers in my room right now. My main PC, an AMD 9600BE quad cruncher with a 9600GSO, bunch of A64/AXP crunchers which some have 8800GS cards, and a laptop.
During the winter I have the heat turned off and the window open
During the spring before the AC kicks on here at school, I swelter in the heat, and the systems run really hot, but no breaks for anyone! Except when one blew up last year But my soldering iron fixed it
haha thats crazy. so far I got my i7 crunching which is a heat monster and the Phenom II. both in my room. You can feel the temp difference walking in and out of my room
And there you have it. Thanks for posting those up Sparky!
As seen above, there are many ways to do crunching, if you want to get it done, the rest are excuses....Sparky is probably one of the most dedicated folding and crunching members I have ever seen.....He does it on a shoestring, and still gets pie......:up:, Brother!!
Take none of those "excuses" from your recruitment targets. Be nice, be professional, but don't leave without a "sale", if possible. Use your common sense.....
As a member of XS, a temporary team member here, a brand new sign-up at "Tech Reaction", the goal is the new recruits. Those who have never crunched before, don't know what we do, or why we do it....
Do NOT focus on only existing crunchers. They are already with the program....The reason XS is #3 is the new folks we have that joined the team. Add up the daily numbers on the XS team page and tell me that's not true. (Hehe, yeah, I know it will take a while...Add up the top ten of our team and compare it to the rest. You'll see it's the total our newer members that rock! Every one of those could be the next DDTung, Rammie, or certainly, take me out (@ #33, worldwide).
Realize I do not say this without acknowledging that there may be bent feelings, folks dropping out of your team, and all that. It happens. I would like to believe that those folks still crunch, are still highly motivated, and are ultimately doing this for a higher reason than just points and team standings. I know I will do this, as long as cancer in particular exists. I do this for many family members, friends, co-workers, church members, yada, yada, I have known over the years.
Mainly, I do this for my only daughter. She means the world to me. I never want her to suffer from "my" genetic line.....
Crunch my brothers and sisters, crunch.
(or, Fold, Fold, Fold....)
Thanks for the kind words bob
You earned them Sir!
This program killed my Dell 3.0HT machine
I don't know if it's the memory or CPU....One tells me thermal issues on boot, and before I reset the bios I was getting memory error at boot. IDK
All I know is that I reset my machine, and was not able to go into normal XP. I could go into safe mood. Now I can't even do that the machine locks on the boot of safe mood.
Damn it.....it has DDR in it also which I don't want to buy.
It is likely memory. Hence the temp warning above. Will memtest run? Another approach, and I know it sounds nuts, is to take the mem, put it in a bag and throw it in the freezer overnight, at least. We've had more than one member recover sticks this way.....
EDIT: It just ocurred to me that you're the first report I know of, on this team, that may have lost HW on crunching. Congrats! You may have earned the first TPU WCG "purple heart"! Quite an honor....I think?
This is my set up.
P45ud3p, x3330 @ 513 x 8.
95% it's the ram...That what happens to most of us. I have lost about 10gig of ram over the last 2 years. Most of it was the d9 stuff. Also fried a mobo too, but that had to do with the volt mod & me pushing a little too hard too crunch.
I wouldn't run WCG on any pre-built desktops personally. Even my Dell XPS M1330 went poop after running WCG for a few months.
Chances are that pre-built machines were not built in case of stressing the hell out of the system continuously with exception of pre-built sever machines.
Gotta love a server board with FB DIMM memory...the D5400XS has been chugging away at 4.1ghz for at least 6 months...I've lost track of when I popped the X5470s into it. Runs hot but seems to be doing the job.
I have yet to kill anything Crunching. Maybe that's because I try to keep my VDimm within spec. I'll only go a tenth or so over with good cooling.
Crap! Log into my main rig this morning & have a message on the desktop sayn Vista recovered from an unexpected error....
I dont know how long it was down for...was on last night around 8pm.
So my biggest bitch is that it didnt crunch all night!
It seems to be running fine now....
TechPowerUp! passes 900,000

dark2099 passed 5,000
3xploit passed 500
JWL1991 passed 5,000
Oily_17 passed 1,000
None of my work from last night/this morning is included. I'm guessing it will show up tomorrow..
yep.... my results didnt show up for a day or so...
You have to wait for other people in your quorum to get the results in. It usually takes about a week to show what your rigs are capable of points wise.
someone help me keep track...
when we reach 1million points let me know so we can get a news post up on the home page.
if there is any other significant milestone we might possibly get a story as well. i think at this point, breaking into top 500 would signify a news post.
We should break 1 mil today in BOINC points.
WCG points we are @
Points Generated (Rank) 6,613,040
odd problem guys.....
my i7 with 8 threads has finished all its current projects and doesnt want to DL any more.
i also started BOINC on another machine and it refuses to get any projects. date and time are right and its attached to my WCG account.
