    Bok over at FreeDC got his system back running- looks like he may have his stats back up in a few hours :toast:

    Link:
    http://www.free-dc.org/forum/showthread.php?36392-stats-are-down

    He picked up $250 in donations so far so it looks like he will have the funds to get some backup hardware in addition to repairing what he's using now.

    *Note- expect very strange stats until he runs a few days (I may continue to use the other site info for a few extra days on our stones and pie posts in order to to give FreeDC's stats a chance to balance out...)

    brandonwh64 Ive attached the file. You can drop it in. Then restart the client and then from the advanced menu choose read from local prefs file. Thats what i ended up doing.

    Glad he's back up and running, but at the same time I'm liking the new pie :confused:
    Either way :toast:

    I'm thinking all we need is the data- we can make our own Pie! :D

    I am using push pins so that isn't an issue. No I don't have a stock heatsink

    Quick heads-up: HCC now has double-length GPU WU.

    My times went from 6min avg to 10min avg whilst the avg WU points doubled. Hopefully we can all see a boost.

    Thanks for bringing this to my (our) attention. I would have seen it was taking longer and started to worry about something being very wrong.

    I just monitored my last 10-14 WUs, and the time now was averaging around 5:20 or so. That's cool with me though :D

    I'm curious.. what core speed are you running and how many WU per GPU?

    I'm only running single wu's on my rigs but I'm getting the same runtimes and points- which wu version is doing this?

    Might be that you're finishing off the single image WU from your work cache. Don't know how to identify them.. they look the same, same version number.. but they stop around 50% to do some CPU work then resume.

    Cool. :toast: Running 2x 7950 now at 900/1250 with 10WU, Xeons@ 2.2Ghz. Will be bit closer to you now so just wanted to get an idea of what to expect from mine.

    I thought your post was in response to me.....

    That's an awesome setup. Maybe I'll even go for some more per card! :toast:

    Definitely. Tested 8, 10 and 12 on this yesterday.. all ran fine. Left it at 10 since that's the one that seems to work best for this setup. Your 7970's should be able to handle at least the same. Just remember to change the CPU setting accordingly.

    EDIT: Running all of this off a 5400rpm laptop drive (windows isn't my main OS).. wonder if that's holding me back. Might try cloning it onto an SSD.

    I'm going to try for some more tonight, and I'll report back :p

    edit: I just set it to 10/card, but it's using 0.4CPUs each. I'm not sure how that's going to handle it, we'll see. You're in a much better situation with your beast cpus!!! :) :) :)

    So I've increased the work on my cards, with your enthusiasm and support (directed at KieX lol), and I think it's working well. Having let it run for a bit now, I can see that the times have settled a little bit.

    I'll keep an eye on it til morning and ensure all is well. Thanks KieX! :D

    Wow--you're running 10 WUs/card and they're still completing in just over eight minutes each! :eek: :toast:

    Awesome! I recon you may be giving t_ski a little bit of a run for his money tomorrow :laugh: Just managed to OC my card to similar settings as yours, but my WU complete in anything from 6-10min, --still slower than yours.

    Side note.. anyone know of a way to clone a hard drive onto a smaller SSD? Was using DriveImage XML and lost a lot of time on it already and didn't work :cry:
