    Perhaps 15-17 thousand WCG ppd at 100% around the clock.

    Hey Fits, just joined up to support the cause! You talked me into it, so I'll stop F@H SMP for now and give WCG a try! I wonder if they'll make WCG GPU editions in the future...

    @ bog, do so now!! Thanks. We need the boost.


    Having said that, OK, I can hear the bugle playing. The Cavalry is coming in over the hill. They'll stay as long as we need the support, but then they'll go back home....I'm about to screw the pie chart, no worries. It will recover.


    What I expect to see, as Rammie stated previously, is more heavy commitment and recruiting from the team members here. Heck, I'm running a single quad, as "123bob_TPU", and coming up in the TPU ranks fast. That ain't right.... I don't do excuses, the numbers show for all to see.....Sorry...;) 24/7/365. That's a good cruncher.....:rockout:

    Have some passion for this work! The cause sells itself. I won't go into the history of some of the XS folks that crunch here, (including myself) because it's not my place. They crunch, they promote, and they do it for good reason....
    I hope to see TPU questioning our #3 XS WCG position in the world. I dare you. Come get us.....:toast: :this would be the "neener, neener, neener": smiley......

    OK now that Paulie has clarified that we need 1Mil BOINC points perday I see that the goal is just about within reach. I feel that with a bit more recruiting and publicity the team should be able to get there.

    When we get our sub-forum, might I suggest it be titled "TPU World Community Grid (WCG) Team" ? This has all the right words in it. If it's too long, we could drop the "TPU" part....

    Thoughts?

    If anybody is worried about Temps on there cpu because of load (like me because i am running stock at the moment) and that is the reason for not participating with this. You can just change how much percentage of your cpu it will use, so even if you have the worst cpu in the world, you could just stick it on 10-20% cpu usage and I bet you wouldn't even notice the speed loss.

    A lot of Little's go along way.

    i run my i7 at 4.2ghz 24/7 at 1.43v on air with the xigmatek DK and a single ultra kaze at 1700rpm and i get 63c max.

    it wont roast a cpu like some of you are thinking

    Ditto what Fits said.

    I run 16 overclocked quads, some of them are B3 stepping Q6600s. Talk about little furnaces! :eek: I have NEVER lost a CPU doing this. The B3 machines have been running TWO YEARS STRAIGHT, 24/7/365. I did lose a few RAM sticks last year when I got into what was apparently a bad batch of Micron D9, but those had lifetime warranty and were replaced.

    Regards,
    Bob

    Gonna get the fiance's e8500 on some WCG action too, I like how the program works overall. It is odd how my CPU loads though, it'll load to about 100% and drop to about 20%, almost like the newer NV WU's in F@H GPU2. I'm also considering swapping my GTX260 and 9600GT over to Bionic GPU...for now I'll stick with my Q6600 and E8500, but hey just glad to be helping the cause! Very cool to see so many TPU members getting active in WCG, definately gotta say I'm glad I joined in!

    OK people just like I said earlier that I would switch my SMPs to WCG, so there you have it and it's done (2 rigs going).
