    My 4GHz FX-8150 has been sucky as well. My 1045T @ 3.6GHz seems to get the same amount of PPD.

    I think you got a bum chip- my 8150 is at stock and averages only 100 ppd behind yours :wtf:
    See if you can replace it under warranty

    I'm seeing more of those GPU Beta units. I saw at least 3 of them bug out with a computation error... is this normal? My GPU isn't overclocked at all (for shame!) so it ought to be stable. Can't see my CPU being unstable either... I've done extensive testing and it seems generally stable through everyday use and gaming, all with WCG in the backgroud 24/7 as well.

    That was the issue I was having with them on a 5870 earlier this year.... it's not your rig, it's the work unit. I believe you can find some discussions regarding AMD 5 series cards on the WCG forum.

    Hi everyone. I'm just writing to say I need to scale down on the crunching.

    I just got my electricity bill and it's close to $300. I just can't afford that anymore. I'm sure it will go down in winter but even $200/month is too much.

    Hopefully I can land a flat in a building where all utilities are included but until then, I need to back off. Sorry guys.

    I'm sorry to hear about that CA, but I fully understand your challenge. Electricity is very much not free. Until you get included utilities, what are you planning to decommission? :ohwell:

    running a farm does push the electric bill up more then one would think. Mine hit $350.00 last month. It has never been that high in the summer.

    Holy crap man. I don't blame ya a bit bro. I would be shutting systems down as well.

    :eek: $350?????? I would frigging freak out Mad!

    As I just stated above, I would be shutting some systems down if it gets that insane.

    Sorry to hear that.... hoping you stay at it for a while at a "reasonable" rate.

    I won't even discuss my power use, will only state that it's very important to get my rigs out of the house sooner rather than later. Hoping to get at least 3 more rigs out there crunching remotely with only two running @ home at the most.

    I wonder if I can find a rented house in Denmark that will include my 15,000 kWh ($5000 yearly) in the rent :laugh:

    I try to justify the high usage in the fact that I have electrical heating but since I only use (before starting crunching/folding) the heaters in the winter I find it hard. But as long as I can afford it I will continue.

    NZXT Source 210 arrived today, and I've done as much of the build as I can ATM (installed PSU & HDD, started routing cables):

    I've also payed KieX for his i7-2700k & mobo, which he said would get shipped out this weekend...so I'll hopefully have another ~7k PPD or so coming online in a week and a half :toast:

    Well I've only moved in here in June and I've payed over $800 in electricity bills. If I was making $30 an hour I wouldn't care. I'll be looking to move into an apartment building hopefully next spring.

    So how do you like the case?

    :eek: Yeah that's a lot of loot for power... somebody's going to have to come up with an economical way to crunch with solar power. Maybe one of our student engineers will have a breakthrough and share it with us :D

    Tell me about it. I make almost a tenth of that an hour so 3 to $400 a month electric bills hurt. I am glad the a/c season is just about over here.

    It's not the A/C. It's really the crunching. You can calculate at least 150 watts per rig, In my case, that's 600 watts being used 24/7. I'm sure nothing would change. My A/C was on only half the time during the month of August compared to July and my electricity bill was the same.

    In your case mad, you can calculate 750w/hour. That''s not including A/C

    150w, that's close to 100% or 100%? My rig at full CPU load is 180-200w max, at 4.7ghz, last time I checked.

    Right now, with Computer, 2 monitor, 1 mini laptop, External HDD, and wireless phone, it's 230w at 60% CPU :)

    It depends, a stock-clocked i7 (Lynnfield/SB/IB) with no GPU can easily be 150w or less. Once you start to add GPUs, power usage skyrockets (2zGTX460 @ 160w each is a lot of power)

    Installed my SSD... :toast:

    With BOINC being on my storage drive, I just pointed it to the same place it was installed before and it picked right back up. It even continued the work units I was working on before I installed the SSD. Kept my settings too...

    As it should :toast:

    I've run the same BOINC install on about ten different computers this summer, each time I move on to a new one, I uninstall BOINC, zip up its data directory, move it to the new computer, and unzip it to the right location :toast:

    Are you guys getting an extra core/wu due to gpu usage?

    My 8 core cpu is running 9 tasks atm

    Look:

    [​IMG]

    The extra task is running at normal speed (i.e. not the fast running betas)
