    Well, my i7-860 has been down for about three hours--when I shut it down to pull out the RAM to tell the Intel RMA folks, I forgot to turn it back on. It's up and crunching again now..should have only lost two thousand points :ohwell:

    Im wondering how the A10 5800K will do at crunching. If the GPU can crunch too, then the points should be 1/2 decent :D

    It should crunch similar to what a Phenom II Quad does at the same speed plus add on a 6670 for GPU crunching.

    OR pretty darn good :toast:

    On another note- I'll be prepping my 1045T rig to run remote with the other 2 rigs to get the load off of my power bill. The new FX-8120/6870 rig will take its place at home :)

    Yeah, as Norton said, it should do very well. I'd say ~3k PPD from the CPU and at least 5k from the GPU--maybe more :toast:
    You've really been able to off-load a bunch of these :toast:

    Did the remote rigs run out of work? And is the new FX-8 running 24/7 now?

    EDIT: Barely top-2000 in the world now :D

    I just said F it and enabled the 5770 at work. Should help me bring around 30K

    That's sweet! :rockout:

    Even after selling most of your crunchers, you're still doing way better PPD than before :toast:

    So you now have one i7, one HD5770, and two HD6950s going?

    Yep, I now have a truck that my family needed for quite some time and I also get WAY more PPD then every cruncher I had combined gotten. Its really good to know I am still pulling my weight here at TPU.

    Got my new GTX470 and I have it installed:
    [​IMG]

    Unsurprisingly, particularly the first card is running a bit warm; however, it has a much lower voltage (.91V vs 1.06V), so it isn't as bad as it could be.

    Apparently the PNY card won't do 750MHz with the second card installed, so I've had to down-clock them. Both are running at 650MHz for now, and I'll OC them a bit later to see what I can get. I'm overall quite satisfied:
    [​IMG]

    The WUs seem to be running a bit slower, but I've yet to determine how much of that is the lower clocks and how much is statistical variation.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am wondering if 2 gpus in one rig may have an affect on the times per wu's. I actually disabled Crossfire on mine and all my problems with the wu's erroring out disappeared. Depending what tomorrow brings :pimp: I may separate the 6850's and see if they do better.

    I haven't experienced any problems running my two GTX 580's in SLI. I guess I could disable SLI to see if there is a PPD difference...

    I have SLI disabled on both of my systems (2xGTX470, 2xGTX460). Seems to be working fine like this--the reason WUs are slower now is that the cards can't clock as high with two present (not sure why, but Newtekie1 observed it as well).

    But I do have the SLI bridge on, so if I want to game I'm just one click away from SLI goodness :toast:

    That's how I have my 6850's. The bridge is on but I have it disabled in ccc.

    My numbers are going to be all over the place the next few days. Decommissioning the 3930K and 3770K, 560Ti and the GTX 670 soon. Found a new home for them.

    Didn't want to miss out on the GPU WU whilst they're here, so got 2x HD7770 for the long haul together with the SR-2. So numbers will briefly go down, then really up followed by a down and an eventual lower. I am starting to think I may have an addiction, can't seem to ever really downsize despite my wallet crying out for it. But there's science to be done and cures to be found, so never quitting.

    :(
    Are you selling all of those?
    It's a shame to see so much great HW go, but I understand that you have to do this sometimes :ohwell:

    Those HD7770s should be great! It's a shame that you couldn't get HD7850s, but they should still be very solid indeed! :toast:

    How much will you eventually be downsizing?

    I hear you Keix. This stuff is really addicting. But I must shrink my fleet some. I am planning to drop to 3 dedicated crunchers if all goes well. I am going to drop 2 from my fleet most likely this weekend.

    Agreed, crunching is definitely habit forming :D

    That said...

    It's really cool that everyone stepped up and gave the new wu a try...it's really giving the Team a big boost :toast:

    I'll be downsizing a bit soon but will always crunch.

    What will you be getting rid of? Are you giving F150 his rigs back? Or selling off some stuff? :shadedshu

    I wouldn't worry about it....I haven't set a schedule yet- "soon" has not been defined.

    Will still wait to meet Buck on the "field of battle" as he described it :)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    We decided that high points are so easy to get now. The real challenge is getting the lowest score possible without hitting 0. It's all the rave now. But seriously I have come up with a plan and I do have most of the right hardware here to do it. I just need to pick up a few little things. I will be able to keep up my points with fewer rigs and may even as a added bonus get a nice boost in points. :toast:

    Downsizing to the SR2 and the 7770's. Although once I move back to Spain.. it's unknown how many hours a day I will be able to afford to crunch. So may not even go full-bore with what I keep.

    7770's take just under 3min to complete, which is faster than my 670 :laugh: Hopefully they'll help me reach my goal of 20Million before it goes quiet in the room.

    Absolutely, small sacrifices that need to be made in harsh times. But I have no doubt we'll power up once the opportunity arises again. :toast:

    What kind of effect does overclocking the gpus have on the wcg gpu wus? Is it mostly shaders, or does the core speed help out as well?

    Not sure what ocing would do. I would do it slow though as you may start erroring out if the clocks are to high.
