    OK, so here's a little surprise: I picked one up :D I dropped it in the 3570K rig and set it to 4 WU's, and they are cranking out (at least for now) at about 5 minutes, which means 1.25 minutes each. I was hoping to drop the GTX 280 in the P4 rig I was going to build, but the P4 mobo seems like it's dead. :(

    Possibly. I feel like there is a little more room left on them. However, today I already pulled over 250K before that card was swapped out in the 3570K rig.

    I had never ran out of thanks until I joined this team. I think that tells you something about this team! :rockout::respect::rockout::respect::rockout:
    Well, going from 4 to 6 WU's, my gpu and cpu usage is up, so I think I'm at my limit lol. You're going to rocket into space with your systems!!!

    Guess whos back!!

    I must be the lucky one with windows 8. I got both 6950's running 4 WU a piece at full load. They just started so hopefully they drop down to around 3 minutes

    I'd say you are the lucky one, because I tried forever and got nothing but driver crashes! After putting in my app_info and starting BOINC, I would crash as soon as the first bit of work started. And I tried 2 or 3 different drivers too.

    So what's your secret, as I would love to get back on 8?!

    Nice, shaving almost a minute off my times, that thing should be rocking :rockout:

    Yeah, this team made me the serial thanker I am today :laugh:

    Sweet job. What versions of BOINC/Catalyst are you using to have that work?

    I might be because of the 6000 series cards. I think the people that were having trouble had 7000 series cards, but I could be wrong.

    Yeah I've gone through hell with this rig, as it is I can't overclock it. Rather now mess with it.

    I had a couple hours of downtime on the i7-860, but it's back up and crunching now :toast:

    That's good to hear. And how is that 7770 treating you, pretty good I presume?

    Yup! I've already pulled 15k from that rig today, and we still have one Free-DC update to go. And last night it wasn't crunching consistently for a few hours while I was messing with BOINC. I figure I should get 23-24k PPD from it--perhaps I'll have to get a 2nd and bump that up to ~42-43k :)

    Looks like something specific to the 7.05 client I'm assuming you're running.

    All WCG BETAs are announced ;): https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,34217

    EDIT: Doesn't seem to work with my app_info:

    08/11/2012 22:24:02 | World Community Grid | [error] No app version found for app beta3 platform windows_intelx86 ver 705 class ati_hcc1; discarding BETA_X0900072831357200607201015_0

    Going to see if I can find the code.. BETA's are probably the most scarce and elusive of all WU.

    I'm running 6.10.58

    I would have to look at the WCG forum first. Thanks KieX:toast:

    EDIT:
    These Betas seem to be two different species - for CPU only and for GPU.

    BETA's are quite rare, so I setup the announcement page to email me each time there's a new thread on there (read only, only WCG techs can post there).

    Sucks though, this is going to be one batch of BETA I can't participate in.

    Interesting - the page doesn't load. I have my account signed up for betas though.

    I've stopped getting GPU WU for HCC, anyone else same thing? Did TPU go through them that quickly already!

    That looks sexy even now. GLWS :toast:
