    They're killer. This is basically my highest day ever, even counting the times when I had two dozen+ Pentium Dual Cores running.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    If these thing continue for any length of time I am going to do some reconfiguring of my rigs and down size. I will have 2 crunchers up for sale. Which will be the 970 and one of the x2 555 that are unlocked and clocked to 3.4. If I do sell these the will be complete crunching combo's ( mobo, cpu, cooler, mem, and gpu) and you guys will have first dibs. Reson for selling is that I have a certain point range I want to be in and if I can do that on less rigs then so be it.

    Fair enough. And if you can get CPUs, then you can get higher PPD with less rigs and less watts, so that's always a win :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    My plan is to go down to just 3 crunchers. One 1055t, the 960t and one of the x2 555's. The x2 4400+ I have plans for so it is actually going to be cut from my crunching farm soon anyway. This will also free up some room for some of the other builds I want to do. :toast:

    Welcome to the team Soup!

    I signed in for the GPU units as well, I did not receive any GPU WUs yet so I can not say how well my HD 6670 GDDR3 will do yet (the more powerful 4850 is excluded from the project, strangely enough).

    Congrats Edward!

    Hmm Chevalr1c you should have a ton of them by now. I have atleast 100 in queue. Did you go to wcg site and configure your profile to crunch on gpus?

    Yes, but it will take a few hours until the next WU is finished (1 is ready to be uploaded) and on the site it is clearly stated that things are being settled for once the client communicates with the servers again.

    I have noticed these thing take priority over other task. They will stop a core from crunching to run these. Do you have any downloaded?

    Well, I'm not very clever, in the process of trying to do something with BOINC on my 2600k I instead reset the project and lost all of the work I had in progress. WCG has re-sent me the tasks I had the first time, so the damage shouldn't be terrible. I unfortunately don't have any GPU WUs right now, but I'm hoping it will give me some when it finishes downloading what is in progress ATM :ohwell:

    Let's just wait a few hours ok? Patience rewards. :)

    Edit: I have increased the buffer to 3 days + 0.80 additional a few hours ago.

    I wonder if we have burned through the first round and these thing aren't going to be steady? As you are the second person that has said they aren't getting any wu's right now. I will keep an eye on my buffer and see if it remains the same or I run out of gpu work.


    I haven't received any new one for about 2hrs now. My buffer is down to 71 left. Was over 100

    WCG is doing maintenance ATM, when I try to fetch WUs it says "HTTP Internal Server Error". Linky

    If that's friday 12 october at 13:00 UTC than it willl be 10h:40m until that maintenance starts.

    That 6670/6750 is a nice little card TMS. :) Mine has a darker blue PCB though.

    I paid 68 euro for mine (DDR3 version), so indeed they are not that expensive (some were a little cheaper but seemed to have noisy coolers). That cooler Sapph used is super quiet BTW, even under load.

    Edit: there they are! :D

    BTW, with the current settings the PC is rather slow and unsmooth, so I will probably only crunch on the GPU if I am supposed to do other things than be in front of the screen, or able to live with the classic theme (if that solves it).
    The GPU folding goes quick though, ~ 4 minutes per WU.

    I got just about 10k from the GTX470 :toast:


    Something is very weird--my i7-860/2xGTX460 system is still getting GPU WUs, but WCG isn't sending any to the i7-2700k/GTX470 system? Any ideas why? :wtf:
