    How do I do the GPU betas and how would my 6950 2gb unlocked cards do in it?

    You get 56 points or so per work unit- your card should do them in 3 minutes. You have 2 cards so you'll do them 2 at a time.

    Enable beta testing on the WCG website and check off use GPU in the preferences menu in the BOINC manager.

    Do you know which projects in particular have GPU WUs? I've yet to see one come up, granted I just enabled beta projects.

    GPU WUs are very intermittent :(

    The GPU WUs that I've gotten are HCC Betas

    Looks like my FX-6200 rig isn't reporting :(

    Will need to visit the rig tomorrow and see what may have happened.... hopefully it just dropped its internet connection. In any case it should be something minor- that rig has been running flawlessly for months.

    fingers crossed :eek:

    Well, on the brighter side, I have the cooler from Buck Nasty installed and the AMD X2 moved into an Antec case. It's going to sit next to my desk and crunch/fold until someone on CL wants it (I might as well get the ~1.3k PPD from it, but if I can sell it for half of the price of an AMD X8 I might as well) :toast:

    That, and with the cooler weather I've gotten my friend with the i5-2500k to fire his system back up---if he can keep it running this time, that's ~3.5k PPD :toast:

    EDIT: Here's the AMD X2 as it will remain until sold :)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well chucky didn't have as good day today. Most of his wu went to the pending pile LOL so it will be a few more days before he spools up to full speed. Damn thing is up to 2 pages of pendings so far. About 3k in points there .


    But the way I have things now, I have done made myself some more room for 1 more cruncher. It will be awhile before I even think about another rig though. Name for the next one will be "Bride of Chucky"

    Looks like the FX-6200 rig is still running. The rig dropped 3+ pages of valid results just after the deadline. :toast:

    Still strange that the reporting seems to have gone to about once per day from reporting as work is completed so I'll need to check that?

    Do you have Mindweaver's tweak still in place? I've never had any issues with delays in reporting while using that :toast:

    EDIT: That reminds me, I still need to tweak the X2 :)

    BOINC Auto-Report :toast:

    I re-pasted my i7 laptop, and CPU temps are down a good ~5C. The impetus for this is that the cores were running highly unevenly (~70c on the lowest one and nearly 85c on the highest). I'm hoping that keeping it cooler will allow it to run the full Turbo speeds (2.8GHz).

    *sigh*

    Is it good that I've begun to expect BSODs at least monthly for both my systems?

    No :(

    BSODs that frequently are not a good sign--a guess once a month isn't terrible, but I would certainly seek to correct that. Is this happening even on your stock-clocked laptop?

    Good news. It's only my laptop that craps. Forgot I fiddled with memory and NB voltage recently on my desktop. :)

    My laptop, I don't know though. Happens when I'm shutting it down, or doing something on my desktop. Never when I'm actually using.

    Also, the about 1,5k PPD for my desktop seems to be fairly accurate.

    Whoop! Just got myself some GPU WUs. Mmm. Nothing like crunching on two GPUs. :cool:

    Please do! :toast:

    My GTX470 does a GPU WU in about three and a half minutes--so your GTX580s should do even better. And they're worth 56 points each :toast: :eek:

    It doesn't say beta anywhere on them, does it?

    Edit 2: Oh yeah, they're for real. So I guess I'll no longer be able to game. :p


    Edit: And I'm fighting to keep my laptop below 70°c.

    No, I just noticed that. They're for real. Which is alright I guess, now they don't count towards runtime for a beta badge, and points are down a bit (33.5pts each vs 55.6), but I'm still getting ~16k from my GTX470, so I'm happy. And a bit over 8k per GTX460 :toast:
