    My 7870 is getting the wu to 99.415% in 01:30 and ready to report in 03:15 :rockout:

    These wu's are cruising and barely messing with my TV tuner :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am getting 30 points on some and 55 on some and 56 on some. So the points don't seem to be as static as they where with the betas.
    Brandon your calculation is correct man. It would be close to 7700 ppd.



    Norton mine is are hitting 99.416 right at 3 mins and ready to report at about 4 mins. And banging them out 2 at a time.

    That's pretty sweet :toast:

    I have no idea why they hang like that at 99.415%...but they all seem to. WUs on the GTX470 get to 99.415% in ~2:35 and are finishing in about 2:55 to 3:00.

    Do you have any other GPUs that could be thrown in, or were they all sold?

    Just checked Use GPU with preference instead of always use GPU, that might do the trick

    I am going to pause mine for now so I can game but I will be running this setup during the day while I am at work. Hopefully all goes well tomorrow and it brings in good points!

    I noticed on the GPU side that if you pause crunching that it finishes what ever GPU WU you have going before completely stopping.

    While they were in beta, if you paused the GPU mid-WU it would lose all progress, which is probably why they've done this :toast:

    Now I have noticed that unlike the betas the pendings are piling up with these. We are probably going to have quiet a few of our wingmen erroring out and delaying the points some.

    I have 2 more that I can use. The 6870 is going in my build this weekend (parts came in today :)) and I'm debating about whether or not to use the other.

    Awesome. That HD6870 should be very solid as well :toast:



    EVGA shipped out my replacement X58 board today; I'm hoping that I'll get it Monday or Tuesday (I can't imagine that it will arrive by Friday, but we'll see). I'm debating whether I want to pick up a GTX470 for it or something ATI. Once you get that HD6870 installed, let me know how fast it's completing WUs, as I might be able to swing one of those or a HD6850. Or there's the tried-and-true nV, which pulls wicked PPD in FAH and WCG :toast:

    I am running 2 6850's in Crossfire and they are doing them right at 4 mins a wu.

    Ask Mad for a GPUZ screenie of his 6850's running these.... temps should be nice and low and they run the wu's pretty quick :)

    But you're right... if you want to be able to do F@H and gpu crunching then NV is the way to go.

    About how much are used HD6850s? That's about 1/3 slower than a GTX470, so as long as they can be had for a bit less than $100 it would be worthwhile.
    Yup. I'd imagine that the HCC GPU WUs will dry up at some point, and I like knowing that my cards will perform well in FAH and not kill WCG while running. But we'll see, I would like to try Team Red.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    They are sub 100 now. Spartan has one for sale right now that I just happen to have the box and original disc for. He is asking 90 for it. Which is what I paid for the XFX dual fan one I got from him. Alos my time maybe a tad slower then yours with the same card as my proc is clocked slower. These wu use the gpu + 1 core. A 6850 in your rig may do them in 3 mins or less.

    Cool, thanks. I'd imagine that the HD6850s would use considerably less power and be far quieter than these GF100 cards. Time to read some reviews to see what I think :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well I can tell you this. They use one power connector and I can acxtually see a difference with the power usage compaired to the 4870's I had in here. Also with them running as hard as they are right now I cannot hear them at all. And there 2 of them in this rig. One has 2 fans running 65% and the other has one fan running 90%

    My 6870s complete one Help Conquer Cancer GPU WU in 4 minutes each at stock GPU speeds. I also might add that even though it is pushing my GPUs ~95%, they're only drawing 80-100 watts between the two of them more than the CPU loaded by itself. Could be the type of math being done.

    Wow. 50w/GPU is a pretty amazing deal. Given that each card is basically doing 20k PPD from that :p

    I think that an i7 loaded with a bunch of mid-range GPUs is going to become the new high-end WCG rig. Although it's great that the researchers have found ways to use the GPUs, I do fondly remember the days when even the fastest rig would only pull 25k/day (and that required a 32c setup). Now $400 in GPUs will get probably 80k PPD :ohwell:

    So it looks like 6800's will do them in about 4 mins a pop. As I am doing them in 4 mins with my x6 @ 3.2 and Aquinus is doing them in 4 mins with his i7 3820 @ 4.5.

    Guys, I'm getting married this Sunday, I'm taking a week off for my honeymoon and pretty much will be out of contact. I'll have the laptop to check things now and again, but not often.

    I plan to leave the crunchers going the whole time, well, at least the X6 anyways.
