    Hey guys, sorry I haven't crunched at all for like the past 9 months haha, it was waaay too hot to crunch for the longest time, and last month I was crunching on and off for about a week and my power bill was up from the normal price by $90! I'm still working on getting my school's libraries crunching when they're idle though! I've tried talking to the school board and they said the would not be able to afford the additional power needed which is complete bullshit because they recently spent the two million that was needed upgrade the school on a new office for themselves (old one was perfectly fine, had more than enough room it was just 10 years old). Anyway, I'm contemplating installing it on some of the computers that have been assigned to students.

    Is there any way to get the manager to report more often? I notice I'll have unused slots and wus that are at 100% and waiting to be sent all the time. I only run 12 slots, and wanted to add more. My gpus seem like they could handle 1 more wu each.

    Yeah, found the update thing. It actually has no problem keeping my gpus loaded up with 2 wu per, but my cpu keeps getting stuck on 6 wus. All 8 threads all being loaded on the cpu though, so I'm not sure. I increased allowed cpu usage, would that have anything to do with it?

    I do not know really. If I use the GPU I limit it to one WU only.

    Well the gpus seem to complete wus much faster than the cpu, so I guess I'll see what gives more ppd, gpu wus or cpu wus.

    GPU WUs by far give more PPD.

    For faster reporting of completed WU's, use Mindweaver's app:
    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106370

    GPU's are running much faster than CPU's. However it is only running one project (HCC) and they keep stating that they are going to run out of WU's in a month or so...
    But GPU's (especially AMD's HD 7 series GPU's) are giving users way more PPD than CPU's ever have:)

    Yeah, running really fast on my 260 and 285. I'm only doing HCC right now so seems like I picked a cherry time to do this! Just wish I could get my cpu to do 8 wus, even after I hit report, still stuck on 6. Wonder if I should back down cpu usage, as I'm sure the gpus are pulling some usage from it somehow....

    What does your Event Log state?

    I also wanted to thank [Ion] for setting me up with the same app file that he is using. Made my life easy with setting up the new crunching rig:toast:

    I don't see a listing for event log. And now it's down to 4 cpu wus. Arg. Going to bed now, I'll see if it sorts itself by morning.

    You might need to have a larger work buffer. In your computing preferences what does your Network Usage tab look like. Here's mine, I downloaded always 4 days worth of work.

    I'm glad you've managed to pull through this--but I'm very sorry that you had to deal with it in the first place.

    Let us know if there is any way we can help :)
    Indeed :shadedshu

    Good news for anyone who's invested money in GPU's for WCG:

    http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,34400_offset,0#404351

    I posted on there just to be sure, those 6 months of WU's are for GPU/CPU alike

    Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes :D :D :D :D :D

    I wonder how they managed to stretch it out from about two months to about six months.

    Depending on how things work out over the next month, I think my ITX system could use a Radeon HD78xx or HD79xx :toast:

    Wow, great news indeed!!! Love to hear that, my rig is happy :) :)

    You should definitely compliment that ITX with a happy 79xx :toast:
