    FYI

    World Community Grid has renamed the "Inconclusive" results category to "Pending Verification"

    Whatever that means :rolleyes:

    I've been running my 2600K on 4 threads since yesterday, so if you noticed it hauled ass today, that's why. 5300 points today at 50% CPU load. :twitch:

    So this means 50%=5300pts, 100%=10600pts? Correct me, if i'm wrong.
    Just wow:twitch:

    At this load (4 threads) it only consumes 80w at 4.5GHz/1.28v. I wonder how it scales with 5+ threads. :)

    I wish :laugh: At that clock, 6-7.5kPPD would probably be expected. My 2600k is at 4.3ghz and on a full days work it can get as high as 6,500ppd. I think the only way to get that high of production out of one CPU would be to 'cherry pick' only the best projects for points.

    What projects are the best for Intel-based crunchers ATM? I have a whole bunch of AMD rigs running and not one Intel, so I'm interested.

    I think it is Computing for Clean Water, but its been some time since I remember discussing it with some other members. For a while it was the Rice Project, but I believe that one is over.

    It's very interesting. Computing for Clean Water is the "sweetest" for AMD FX too but not for Phenoms.

    Might have something to do with the similarities between hyperthreading tech and the module architecture of the FX series. Phenoms were always a little unpredictable when it came to PPD (at least back when I had a few of them).

    Agreed. Or similar new instructions.

    Well guys, I opened up the 2600K to 100% just now, after making my computer a lot quieter (and more bearable) by moving it into the partially enclosed tower shelf in my desk. Also shoved my old laptop bag on the side and a fold-up luggage bag on the top of the tower to absorb a bunch of noise while not blocking any fans. Hoping to be somewhere around 7500 +/- 1K PPD on this 2600K. We'll see! :)

    4.5GHz as always. Only uses a cool 100w with 100% WCG load. :)

    my 2500k at 100%, all computer is about 160w if I'm right :D

    They use not too much power for that performance :)

    BTW, 1 star to go :D

    Okay guys...as some of you may know my computer has been freezing up a lot lately...I've been reducing my bus speed to lower the OC on the CPU, RAM and CPU/NB and it has been happening less. I'm thinking the RAM might be getting tired of it.

    To help me diagnose the issue this is what happened when I got home from work today:

    My screen never shut down and at 1st I thought to myself "great!" but then when I tried to go to the different tabs in boinc there was no respnse.

    So I tried opening Control panel which opened without a hitch but when I tried to close it, it wouldn't.

    Then I tried with google chrome which opened and right to google homepage but again became unresponsive. This time mouse and keyboard were working fine this time and fully responsive unlike other freeze ups.

    I'm not sure if boinc was still doing WU's because it was stuck on the projects tab and I didn't think to open task manager to see the CPU usage before rebooting.

    Anybody have any ideas what may be causing this? :confused:

    It never happens while using the computer or playing my games.

    What's your processor usage (% of processors, % of CPU time) in BOINC?

    Dropping to 1333Mhz on the ram may help but you should be showing multiple errors on the WCG results status page if you're having ram stability issues.

    Also, are you running a temp monitor while away from the PC?

    Check the HDD with seatools. Then I check the memory with memtest. Just to be safe.

    Was having similar issues on Lauren's machine and it was a dying HDD. :shadedshu

    Yeah, normal stuff taking a long time to load/not loading sounds like a bad HDD to me. Time to start troubleshooting. :(

    My temps are fine, as I type this, HWMonitor reports CPU temp at 46C and the cores at 36C each. That's with boinc running full tilt 100%/100% and no errors on returned WU's.


    My OS HDD is a Corsair Force 3 SSD which is only 6-7 months old, my data drive is a WD 320Gb Caviar Green about 3 years old but not running OS. only data storage.

    Memtest is a good idea though I have it on a flash drive I just might run it tonite with my current bios setting and see if I get errors thanks for mentioning it Radical :)

    No problem loading stuff. The SSD is super fast and optimized the way it is supposed to be. It's just programs would open but can't do anything with them. And that only happened today after being at work all day. It never happens while I am using it, only while I'm away for long periods of time. even when idle without boinc running.


    I will run memtest86 to see if I get any errors. I am thinking it is the memory.

    Do you think something in power management may be screwy?

    No I double checked that.

    I think Radical Edward confirmed my suspicions that it may be my memory overclock. I will test it tonight.

    Those little Biostar boards are so cute. Too bad I bought the severely stripped down sibling (A780L3B).

    The other A880GZ with the FX-6200 has been running great :toast:
