Same stuff I linked above.
Can hopefully get fully crunching with that thing.
I too play games on my 1055t while crunching. If I feel I am going to be playing for a few hours I'll suspend crunching but for sorter time I just crunch and game at the same time. I have all mine set at 95%. I also web browse, watch vids, and other stuff and haven't noticed a hit. It may also depend on system memory too. I am running 8gb.
I mean actually I can't really tell a difference when it is crunching to when it's not.
As long as CPU priorities are right you should not see a hit when gaming, although in some cases a small framerate stutter will occur. The time to completion on the WCG WUs will increase, but as long as you aren't gaming 24/7 you should not see a large hit to your PPD.
Yes , I noticed a slight studder every great now and then while playing Sniper Elite V2 the other day but that was just that time. Could have been a higher temp issue with one of the vid cards or the system could have been chugging at a rough work unit. But that was the first time I seen it and it hasn't even done that again.
Well Lauren's HDD gave up the ghost last night, was forced to use my external drive as a replacement for her machine. I was able to restore most of her data since I had set up Windows backup. Just need to reinstall a bunch of programs.
What a pain to deal with though. Should have known better than to install a Seagate HDD. Thankfully it has a WD now.
I've been playing WoW and Diablo 3 while crunching 100% on my i5 2500k.
WoW framerate went a bit down, as it is CPU demanding, but still have orgrimmar over 35-40fps, and some peak when flying or other over 100 to 200fps . No frame lost on D3. Big games, I suspend it, as I want to make sure my FPS won't go down (like BF3, when crunching, framerate goes down.)
Well, Taking picture this afternoon of my M6500 cruncher from work , still haven't crashed, running 8 thread 50%. My home cruncher will be with my fan controller and finished cable management
Man, I can't wait for all these Pendings to validate. Yeah I am back to crunching again, finally a long overdue return.
Go for Top 10
I'm going out with the wifey tonight can someone post the Milestones, Pie, and Daily Numbers for me???
Will be back late tonight and will fill in what I can if nobody gets to them- Thanks!
someone can sticky this: the PPD for 1,2,3,4,5 star?? I can't find back the post :S
Norton, at what time it's online? you take the WCG Stats for yesterday, right?
I'm back online. Is something up with boinc? My nets been up for about 20mins now and there not uploading. It says they are but nothing. I'm gonna try restarting it here in a few.
Oh yea, Hi everyone.
Here you go
badge + 1 star - 500
badge + 2 stars - 2,000
badge + 3 stars - 4,500
badge + 4 stars - 8,000
badge + 5 stars - 12,000 or greater
What is this badge and star thing about?
It's the badge like whats under my bonic stats ticker in my sig. The stars represent A certain ppd tally. which I just posted.
Oh and you have to have atleast 100k points to get the badge
well I'm down a rig. I'm soo freakin fed up with it. I shut it down and I'm on the verge or taring it apart. I never had decent luck with this board and its just pissing me off. All it wants to do is keep freezing. I try running searches to fix it but I can't get far at all. So since it won't do a dran thing. Its shut down and I don't plan on bringing it back up. May just get a different board and just go all office space on this old one. This board was garbage to begin with. For those who don't know it's a MSI k9n2 sli plat.
nForce 7 AMD chipsets are crappy anyway. Ever get my Foxconn A7DA-S/Phenom X4 9750 going? Haven't heard anything about it since I sent the package to you.
not yet. I'm gonna look into getting it running this wkend. I'll keep you posted on it.
Send it to me I'll play with it.
Already called dibs. Might become my nas replacement to the p4. Would be cheaper to do than try and add sata to the p4
I'm Back!.... will have the daily's up in a few minutes
I checked my WCG page today and I have not 1 or 2, but 14 pages of results that are pending validation since 6/4/12.
11 pages for me :shadedshu F-150 Raptor says he runs about 50 pages of pendings..
I have like 15 pages.
ty, we should sticky this
I'm almost at 8k now
6 for me...
