    Yeah, no idea. I'd read there was some new stuff sent over from other labs of the same project so I guess that might have something to do with the new workload.

    I guess I'll need to ask Santa to have his reindeer power a generator for me this Christmas :laugh:

    Quick question:

    Which CPU do you guys think will run hotter at stock temps under stock cooling? Intel i3570K or ADM Phenom II x4 910e?

    I would imagine the i5. Mine was running at 47C with a Megahalems (it turbo's to 3.8GHz) and my short experience with an 1090T was that it runs incredibly cool even with the stock heatpipe cooler.

    you relieved most of my apprehensions KieX!... this post made me think about 7770/7850(1GB) instantaneously! :D

    I was aiming for high-end next gen.. but with this next gen can wait.. and I got to start checking prices

    I think loads of people were on the same boat. When I read that thread earlier I just couldn't believe it lol.

    Yep CP, that was it I guess. It kept running out of wus in the queue. Somehow on my main rig it seems to know how to upload enough to keep my 480 busy....

    Thanks. I have both CPU's, one Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM, one H50 and an Intel stock cooler (no stock cooler for the 910e). Just trying to figure out where the H50 and Hyper would be best used, and I think you answered my question. :toast:

    My overclocked 1045T runs cool with a stock AMD heatpipe cooler so a 910e should be no issue to keep cool- may even do ok with a non-heatpipe AMD cooler.

    Drop me a PM- I may have a stock heatpipe cooler if you're interested (have a whole box full of non-heatpipe ones) ;)

    Thanks. I was going through some backup drives and found an old copy of the Intel one I'd done for you a while back. Just thought i'd give it an AMD graphics refresh :)

    Just a query.. when I crunch my 480, I get like over 90% cpu usage on 1 thread, and almost nothing on the others.. anyway to get more threads to feed the 480?

    hi.new member here.
    i'm using A3870k APU@3.2GHz to crunch, with 4 task running with 100% CPU resource for like 8 hours a day and resulting in 3,9k points (more to come, since i doesnt run my computer continuously).

    The question is, with the working time(8 hours) is 3,9k per day already effectively use my cpu power or can it be squeezed for more without overclocking it further?

    I just bought a Athlon II 240 so I am going to be getting it up on my new crunching build! Hope to have pictures soon but here is a preview.

    *EDIT*

    I just noticed that Twilight had his account removed from TPU :( This is most unfortunate and hope we didn't do anything to him.

    Cool setup Brandon :toast:



    The HDD in my Atom build seems to have died. It will boot occasionally, but most of the time it doesn't detect the drive or, if it does, won't boot. I have a spare 160GB and I'll get it replaced at some point :ohwell:

    Thanks ION. Hope to have the full specs below once I am done.

    MSI 785GTM-E45
    AMD Athlon II 240
    Corsair XMS2 2x1GB DDR2-800
    Palit GTS 450 Sonic
    Antec 430W Truepower
    LG DVDRW
    NZXT Vulcan

    Later on once I get conformation that my other build is ready for purchase I will be rocking a AMD A10-5800K + FM2 board (Board not known yet)

    Those 7770's look to be a good winner! They are quite cheap right now and you would benefit from two or more! I even thing two 7770's would probably out crunch my unlocked 6950's

    You think two would game as good or better than a 6850?

    I believe Asrock makes a pretty sweet mATX FM2 board Brandon ;)

    I have an EVGA GTS 450 in my FS thread if you want to try a little SLI action with that Palit card (obviously in another board...). I'll give you a good deal or an even better than good deal if you have one more key available :)

    If you're using the app_info file you'd need to use one with code for CPU projects as well in order to use those other cores fully.

    It would mean finishing your current WU, closing boinc, removing the app_info file and then restarting the install steps.

    Good to see you got it all going. You can set all the parameters for computer use in the Advanced view > Tools > Computing Preferences > Processor Usage. BOINC will always make the most of the settings you select so there's no real trick to squeeze more out of it. Overclocking the CPU speed is the best way to increase the returns as long as it's stable. WCG rewards consistency :toast:

    Good then I have a change to make up for lost time. It seems like both my GPU crunchers are down to half production ATM. I'm not even in flying distance to correct it so Science/the team/MStenolm have to live with it for some time. I guess that the next time I check in here I will find myself out of top-10 all time pie but rest assure I WILL claim it back ;) Off to third hotel in three days in three countries. I do deserve a small GPU Christmas present from myself.
