    Thats a shame.

    So far ive just downloaded and set it to work, just got back from work and now going out, so will trawl the threads tomorrow looking at how to better optimize.

    Cheers guys

    With all the new crunchers I'm not so afraid that the team will keep producing great number even in my absence. I will leave my rigs running (minus my work laptop) for the duration of my business trip to Thailand and Indonesia but I expect some decline since my 5500 PPD laptop from time to time BSOD and my 7950 sometimes spends hours to even start a new WU. I had 10 such in the past few days.

    Can you not set up Teamviewer on the HD7950 rig to monitor it remotely?
    Thank you for all that you do :respect:


    My Atom rig was out of service for about two days--the HDD in it may be going bad (it rebooted and then came back and said that there were no bootable devices found). It's going again, but I'm not sure how long it'll last (and I don't have time to install a new HDD right now.

    I might but I will be on the move most of the time. I instructed my wife to check on it once a day and kill any jobs that last more then 10 min.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Alright fellow crucnhers, I have setup a f/s thread with some nice combos. I have crunched or are currently crunching on them so they are rock solid. Crunchers will get discounts. Clicky for linky. Reason for sale is I am trying to fund some upgrades for my main rig which will lead to other stuff for sale later. Also one of the combos (matx am3)I will sell as it is pictured, case and all, for a little extra money on top. :toast:

    Well, that should deal with it quite nicely :toast:

    What's up with the laptop that it BSODs so much?

    I just checked on my HD7770 system and it's still pulling down WUs like normal :confused:

    But I'll be sure to keep an eye on things for now--thanks for the heads-up :toast:

    My 7870 rig is running low but I still have some ready to start...

    They may be slowing the work down by using quota's again- this thread at WCG forums has some info on it:

    http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,34380

    Try updating manually if you've run out of gpu work, you may be getting them in smaller batches for awhile

    I had to leave the house. :( I did try manually updating right before leaving so I'm not sure what happened, thought it didn't download more work. I'm not sure, we shall see. I'll check that thread Norton, thanks

    WTF, as soon as I'm in the airport this happens. I could have warned you all. It never fails that something goes wrong as soon as I leave my rigs. OK, deep breathing and check what the real status is. It seems like my two major producers still get new WUs. The next the shout Wolf will get a good spa....king.

    So when I got home, all was back to normal, running the work like usual and downloading/sending like it should. That's good to know. Funnily it was down for me for a few hours in the late morning and early afternoon :confused:

    Hope it stays going strong! :)

    Finally got all the pieces for the new cruncher:
    (Thanks to Cold Storm for a great deal on the i7 2700K and Crucial RAM:))
    [​IMG]

    Besides the CPU and RAM - the cruncher consists of an ASUS P8Z68-V Z68, 3 x VisionTek HD 7770's, Dark Night cooler, and a Corsair CX750.
    I tried to fit it all in my old Antec P192 case (to keep the wife happy), but I couldn't put the third GPU in as there was not enough room:( Oh well.
    I haven't started crunching on it as I am wanting to figure out the app_info.xml first.
    Any suggestions on how many WU's I should try to run on each?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am running 3 on my 7850 and it is very happy there. I probably could push out 1 more but I think I rather er to the side of caution.
