joined, e2140 with a nice healthy overclock
In a prior post, we were discussing BOINC points and possible equivalence across different platforms (i.e. WCG and GPUGrid). I mentioned a tech paper that went into this more. I couldn't get to it then, but now I can.
Here it is.
<<<<< OK, new sig and avatar....
EDIT#2: Hmmm, sig not showing up.....Got the box checked in user options....Do I need more stars or something?
Dont think you need more stars, the only restriction I think is on size
EDIT: When you go to User CP and Edit Sig does it show up in the preview panel.
Yup, it shows fine in the preview...
Another topic and heads up for those doing GPUGrid.....just found this issue.
As the GPUGrid folks know, GPUGrid took a dump and is offline.
I noticed that the rig I run both WCG and GPUGrid on would not allow updates to the WCG project. I couldn't report finished units.
I'm running BOINC 6.6.7
GPUGrid is down and I keep getting a message stating it is trying to get to the project servers. In the meantime, it doesn't seem to want to let WCG do it's thing. I get no WCG messages when I hit the update button for WCG.
I suspended GPUGrid, reset it, no help. I finally detached from it and WCG can do it's work. Just a heads up.
EDIT: Dooh! there's the SIG below...Thx.
EDIT#2: OK, now how do I delete a post? I noticed I somehow duplicated the post above instead of editing it. It don't see an option to delete it in the edit function. ...... Dang, I'm such a noob here....
Looks like Bob's spreading WCG fever at TPU.
And going crazy at the same time.
Yeah. I think we might just have a legit team. With any luck, by next week I'll be running 3 WCG rigs.
Ya buddy that gpugrid thingy threw me for a loop...
Thanks for the advice over @ XS Bob!
Had to change my config file too to stop 5 wu's from crunching..lol
Haha! You will buddy!!

I read that TPU team needs to get into top 100 to get its own forum. That's going to be rough.
Yeah it looks like a good start to the team.
I am running this on my two machines that do Folding@home with the GPU's and it seems to have no effect on their performance at all
When I get my other machines sorted I will add their CPU's to WCG and Fold with the GPU's
We just need to get a few more members to add their hardware to this as well...just tell them that they can get some pie
Paulieg and Fits just need to sell some non crunching hardware!
I managed to scarf down a piece of Key Lime this time.
Told you we could arrange the key lime pie for you....
Added a link in my sig as well. Getting to the top 100 is going to be a tall task, lets get everyone to add something to their sig.
Did one myself too, don't know if everyone will understand it right away. But I like it.
does it take a long time after the work units upload to see it on the webpages?
http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/stat/viewMemberInfo.do?userName=mrhuggles <-- it says ive done none but its been going all day...
Generally 1 day is enough, but give a week.
In other words, there will be no day that your output is the same. Your average output will be average outcome of 2 weeks or more. You should ignore your first two weeks of output, and start counting your daily output as your average after that period.
OK, I just installed WCG on my in laws PC too. They'll never even know that they are helping. Looks like that makes three for me now, and 4 next week.
have no fear, chicken patty is here
back up guys
Good to have you back, CP
well since I had the rad out and stuff, I cleaned it up really good. my temps were high but no wonder. The fans when I removed them, it had a thick layer of dust on the rad, literally it must have had no air flow at all. I also had noticed now that the fans are quieter.
Well after about two hours of crunching, here are the results:
load temps before were:
Core 1 75
Core 2 72
Core 3 74
Core 4 70
Load temps now, about 5ºc lower across all cores, see below
my load temps are 52-55c with it set to use 99.99%cpu [the maximum] but im only at 3.2ghz
but then again im also running a default Q6600 cooler
I think we should have a custom logo on our avvys, you know, like the folding icon...
yes, but the Q6600 runs much much cooler!
