    Something strange is going on here. My 3.8GHz x6 is doing 6400PPD, up from the usual 4600. It's producing significantly more points than my 3.8GHz i7 920! It doesn't even have a GPU capable of running WCG tasks... :wtf:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    My final rig for the year is almost done. Yeah hmm. I have got to change some fans to non lighted fans since this rig will be set up with the 3 linux rigs in my bedroom. I am going to install the os tomorrow.

    Wow, that's amazing! Are there any projects in particular that it's doing so well on?

    I assume you're getting ~5k PPD or a bit more from the i7-920?

    I have no clue what's going on here. Honestly I think it's some kind of error somewhere. The 920 is hanging around 4400 right now, the highest I've seen is 4600, but the 920 is the computer I actually use, so the points are a bit erratic on it. The x6 doesn't hardly get used at all. It seems the points on the x6 are on the way to dipping back down to where they usually are.

    It may have just been a fluctuation of how many pending validations are clearing out..., the ppd on some of my rigs has been moving around lately as well?

    Check the WCG website "results status" page and select beta under projects.

    Check the gpu beta thread here for some screenshots of them running

    *Note- they come in quick and leave quick so they're hard to catch sometimes

    GPU WUs are rare at this point. They'll come and go, usually we'll get an hour or two of them once a week. So you'll just have to wait and see.

    That face is priceless.

    I just got an idea. I'm going to truths PSU from the 2nd cruncher on my 2600K. I have a feeling my issue is PSU related. Got nothing to lose.
