    That's a bummer. Hope that thing works. I set my connection to connect every 0.0 and work buffer down to 0.1 based off some posts I read on the WCG forum. So far only had that problem of not receiving WU once.

    Awesome :toast:

    I will do another test tomorrow morning on my work rig with a clean install with the settings and then copy it to my dedicated rigs. An extra 20K is needed to stay in the pie these days, and that's good. Imagine that I had cherry pie once in the past (67K back in March) but now it will barely get you close to pie. :toast:

    Cool. Yeah it's awesome to see these big numbers. This WCG team is seriously TechPowerUp'd. Today t_ski is going to show me that 100K isn't good enough for cherry pie anymore :respect:
    t_ski says thanks.

    I find that WCG actually gets my cpu hotter then prime 95.....
    4.5GHz at 1.25 vcore. I'm pretty happy with that for a 3770k, got my kingston ram running at 2133mhz.

    I'll be throwing all 98 threads in there today along with 2 gpus and I'll be lucky if I get a little of that crunchy cement pie by tomorrow :D :rockout:

    Great job Team! :toast:

    Hey guys so far I have the following GPU's crunching.

    1. GTX480 (Multi 4x WU's)
    2. GTX570 (Multi 3x WU's)
    3. GTX470 (Soon to be Multi WU's)
    4. HD5850 (Soon to be Multi WU's)
    5. GTX285 (Soon to be Multi WU's)
    6. GT240
    7. GT240

    EDIT: I'm going to have to shut down a few rigs tomorrow for an hour or so to replace the bad circuit from last week.

    Wowzers! That's phenomenal! :toast:

    Let me know how the multi-WUs on the GTX470 goes--mine are desperate to stretch their legs :D

    Sure thing man! I'm going to try and go for 4x wu's on my 570, because it's handling 3 so well. :toast: I'm hoping the same goes for my 470. I'm going to set it up to crunch multi tomorrow. I want to see how well the 570 does with 4 tonight. :toast:

    Hmm. I'm running 1 GPU WU on my 560 right now - do you think I can take on 2, since your 570 has 3?

    It runs around 93% with 1 WU though.

    Sweet! How long are the WUs taking on the GTX570 (doing 3 at once)? I can then at least get a rough idea of what it'll be like on the GTX470.

    My HD7770 is now in the hands of UPS--should have it Monday.

    My new P55 board got here today, I'm going to re-build that system tonight :toast:

    Awesome! My 560 takes 5-6 mins if that's helpful.

    I'm at about 6 minutes/WU on the GTX460 and 3 minutes/WU on the GTX470 (both systems are OCed i7s running 1 WU/card)

    That's a pretty big difference! Might do a OC, we'll see :p

    It is, and I'm honestly not sure why. I think that the GTX570 will be closer to a GTX470 for WCG than a 560TI.

    That's a boost, but not as much as I guess I'd expect. ~2-2.25 minutes/WU is certainly an improvement. But it isn't the benefit the Radeon cards see :ohwell:

    Yea but i'll take it.. hehehe I can't get my HD5850 w/ 1055T x6 @ 4Ghz to crunch multi WU's... The setup file in the Multi WU's on GPU Thread is set for amd(GPU)/Intel(CPU) not amd/amd.. It errors out on the intel CPU wu.. :banghead:

    I'm going to attempt to setup multi WUs on my 7970s tonight, maybe 3 like t_ski. Currently it's taking about 1:28 to 1:38. I'll be posting later probably to get help lol and then to report back what happens and how it goes :rockout:

    *sigh*... And my desktop did it again. :(

    Weeks of WCG crunching? Sure!

    5 minutes of idle? DAMN NO! Crash the system! :ohwell:

    Had only done software level performance locking.

    After that, I killed CnQ in bios. Hope it fixes it.
