    More than good man.


    BTW, what would be the best way to set up a raid through software, I don't wan to have to re-install windows again. I say this because the one spare drive I have is the same as my storage drive on my main rig and I want to set up a RAID so I can have a back up of my storage drive. if I lose all my Porn I'll die. :roll: This is why I don't use that drive in the 2nd rig since I will need it shortly.

    Part of setting up a RAID array involves potentially blowing away all the current data on the HDD.

    Is it normal for some of the Malaria, Schistosoma and Leishmaniasis WUs to have estimated run times of 80-153hrs? That's quite a bit of time for a single WU, and the largest I have seen by far on WCG.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I had a few of those earlier in the week. When they actually start running the times will fall back to normal. Also keep a good eye on those, I had one that freaked out and stalled. You'll be able to tell as the percentage won't raise but the time will. Mine got to 45% when it stalled.


    I just need to find the last piece of my new cruncher puzzle. A cheap but good cooler.

    So nothing can be done through software, I have to do it before installing windows?

    New TPU team member- Dorothydot

    We have a new member on the team :rockout:

    Her user name is Dorothydot and I just got her up and running on her new build about 3 hours ago. She has committed to 14 hrs/day on the new build for now (PII X2 555 cpu).

    She may not be joining us here at the forum but I will provide her with the info she needs to join in case she changes her mind.

    Not as far as I know. You could do it after windows, but you most likely will loose all your data. :ohwell:

    It's not unusual for the time to keep ticking and the percentage complete not to change....it's kinda like windows time...never tells the truth.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Yeah but the one that stall stayed at 45% for over 12hrs. It started at saying something like 17hrs total run time. After about 24 hrs running thats one it said it still had like 26 hrs to go. So I left it until the next day. When I checked it again it was at 36 hrs ran and like 38hrs to go. While still at 45%. So I killed it with fire. :toast: and moved on to the next one.


    I did noticed after I got rid of that one the rest that had unusually run time, that hadn't started yet. The times changed on those to normal amounts.

    The completion time on these long ones is jumping all over the place :rolleyes:

    Can't get any new work downloading until BOINC manager decides the completion time has dropped some more. I looked a couple of hours ago and said WTF when I saw only 10 jobs in the task window instead of the usual 1+ pages....

    Well the beta gpu stuff didn't like my 4870 at all, but it must love 2 of them in crossfire. I've gotten 3 so far for a whopping 3500 points. And I didn't even notice it got em until I checked my stats and seen 3 betas done.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    It didn't like any of my rigs. Now all of a sudden I am getting some here and there on my hex system since I threw the second 4870 in there. Go figure. I just don't know how long I am going to keep the refernce one in as the fan is loud as shit.


    I have now ideal when they came in or when the got done. I think yesterday sometime.

    :laugh: Yep they are loud!! Grab EVGA Precision or something similar to adjust the fan speed. Works great man.

    If you don't want precision just go into the ATI CCC and your able to adjust the fan speed within there as well. Always seem to work great for me.

    I went into the control center and manually set it to 60% on the reference card and 90% on the Dark Knight. The Dark knight is quiet as hell but doesn't cool as well as the reference designs cooler does. :toast:

    Set the clocks on that Dark Knight to stock 750Mhz and it will- ASUS set the clock at 815Mhz on that card which is VERY high for a 4870 :D

    *** Edit- a stock 4870 cooler will melt off and drip onto the PCB if you set the clocks that high, or it will smell like it's burning ****

    Now if I remeber correct;y if the cards are in crossfire, and one is faster then the other like in my case. Doesn't they both revert to the slower speed? If not then I will lower the Dark knight as it doesn't need to run that fast in crossfire.



    Edit Sob won't let me lower the mem speed on the Dark Knight. So it will stay at 925, but I did lower the core speed to 750.
