around 4ghz is the sweetspot for those, some rare will do 4.2-4.4
No severance here, I'm a truck driver and our work dried up, or so they say. I'll catch Mindweaver one day, just not next month like I thought it would be.
They're all personal rigs, 2 I-7 980x's, a I-7 950 and 875k, a SR-2 with 2 5670's, and a quad 6176 se server.
geesh CP, how many assistants you need? pretty soon mad shot's gonna be in there lol.
I'm hoping there is some room left, although it's already at nearly 80c load, so I might just stop here until I can find better fans.
You have all of that??? I am simply astonished
No wonder you could pull 70k PPD, that is an incredible set of hardware!
Yup! I'd like to sneak boinc onto our 5 Xeon servers at work But I don't think operations would like that too much, unless I can cut some some sort of deal to suspend them while we're operating. But I think it's out of their hands and that the servers are actually manged out of Illinois through a VLAN. It's nice to dream though right? 5 x Xeon E5-2667 6core = 60 threads!!! even at stock speeds that would be sweeeet.
Sweet? My pants got tight just reading your post
That would be some serious computing power my friend. But like you said, it's nice to dream.
Hmm... sometime down the road when I have some money put away I may consider getting a 980x. It looks good... looks like I can expect to pay maybe $300 for one. The additional 4 threads would give WCG a good boost, and 4GHz should be no problem. 6 cores, 12 threads, more L3 cache and 32nm sound good to me.
Well, my i7 BSOD'd overnight, strange, it was running fine for a few hours and then crashed an hour after I went to sleep. I've disabled FAH for now, but I might have to lower the OC later.
Do you know the stop code?
I don't remember what it was, but I'll record it should it happen again.
Hmm, can't you get it from event viewer in windows? Does it show the stop code there?
...and Hat, that should indeed give you a nice boost.
Sorry to hear F150. If you want I will log all my rigs under your account to help you get to your goal. I know you have been working at it for sometime now and it would be great to see you hit it.
Geez, how often does WCG need to do server maintenance??? :shadedshu
I'll look, I didn't have time to check earlier.
It has been going on for a long time at this point, but hopefully once they finish this they won't need any more for a while
EDIT: Based on some preliminary results, if I can keep the i7 running C4SW WUs, it should do 5.6k PPD!
4.5 seems stable, and it did 4600 yesterday, should be better today when its done a full 24hr run @ 4.5
@Ion, 5.6 wouldnt be bad at all imo, thats pretty good for oldschool i7.
It'll do lower on other WUs for sure, but still, it should do 4k+ easy
For sure 4k. Has anybody had any luck uploading finished WU's?
Mine have had no problems at all today.
Got my desktop up again, and just to make sure it wasn't a good day, the fan in my cooling pad died.
no problems here today, but its very up and down, cant really trust it lol
Yeah, I've been uploading & reporting WUs from 3 PCs for a few hours
Hmm, starting to think it's my rigs. Any suggestions?
EDIT: My 2600K has reported all it's finished WU's. So has the i7-950.
I'll get to my goal sooner or later, thanks for offering though.
Sucks to hear that bro, hopefully you find something soon. Maybe I have enough steam with my downsized farm to catch up to you a little in the mean time At any rate, good luck.
If it's a sandybridge i7 I'll happily bet $10 it was a Error code 124
With my cooling pad fan out, I'm decommissioning my laptop as a WCG cruncher. :S
Might be able to put my desktop to permanent boost speed though, so will get a bit from that.
What cooling pad do you have and are you good with a screwdriver?
