    Hey guys! I'm on a family vacation now, so I'll be on the forums intermittently until Friday. I left my i3 and i7 both crunching while I'm away. I'll make it my goal to log on and reply to threads at least once a day :toast:

    Other i7 is up and running in all its Win8 Pro glory. I switched the Water 2.0 Performer to its push/pull configuration to slow the fan speeds to min of 1200RPM so its pretty much silent at load. The loudest component is the 6770, but its not too bad at all. It takes about 11min per 'double' GPU WU, so its middle of the road performance wise.

    That's very solid looking! :respect:

    Any plans to OC or get a faster GPU for it?

    Awesome. :toast: I'm about to switch back over to Win8 too, hopefully it'll work nicely.

    I dont think I will upgrade the GPU, but a good OC is in order for the CPU sure. I want to build an APU setup, so this will be running until I source that hardware.

    Don't think I could do Win8 on my main PC, its so different :eek:

    The last HCC1 unit I got was at 01:59 UTC so I have dried out on my mayor GPUs. My 7770s have around 1 hour left in the buffer.

    Edit: At 14:30 UTC they came back. 12 hours lost on my three mayor GPUs. I did upgrade to version 7.0.42 on one more rig which should give me a bigger buffer. I better do the last rig as well.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    Merry C everyone.

    BTW, time for a little status update after my previous post. I have set up Asgard-AMD (my "at parental home" PC) to crunch, now the length of the stay at my parental home is long enough to let it be worthwile to contribute to the WCG using that machine (not climateprediction.net though, CPDN WUs have a ~3 months ahead deadline for a very good reason).

    BTW, those who wish to add CPDN as an additional project to their crunchers should read the information at climateprediction.net thoroughly (at least the sections about the crunching) because that project is very different than the WCG etc. If you want to join, Team Chevalr1c is open to new users like you (it could act like an unofficial TPU CPDN team).

    Well it is beautiful here in Cancun!!!
    I checked my stats and am really concerned at my numbers:(
    Don't have anyway to check what is going on so it will have to wait until I get home next week.
    Anyways - Merry Christmas eveyone:toast:

    So I finally came back onto my Windows 8 drive as of last night. I was not receiving HCC WUs on my GPUs on Windows 7, and I hadn't received any on my Windows 8 either. I left it overnight thinking that they might come back, as they have several times before, but finally checked it now with nothing.

    So I disconnected from WCG and reconnected, and I started receiving more work, yet not GPU. Apparently on my Windows 8, "Use GPU" was unchecked (not sure how because last time I was running my GPUs :confused:). So, it's back up and running 1 WU per card (lame, I know), but while here I'm going to be tying out the new app_config instead of app_info. Maybe I'll have a better time getting it to work better :ohwell:

    So I'll post back later, hopefully with good news.... :toast:

    Have some fun down there in Cancun!!! :toast:
    try and relax, not worrying about the numbers til you get back :respect:

    If you don't get it to go then uninstall BOINC and reinstall 7.0.42 from here:
    http://boincstats.com/en/page/downloadBOINC

    add in your cc_config and the app_config files to the correct locations and you should be good to go. I just switched my main rig over and it picked it up right away ;)

    Drop me a PM for the files if you want them :)

    ** EDIT- files I'm using (adjust to your system needs):

    Code:
    <cc_config>
    <options>
    <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
    <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
    </options>
    </cc_config>
    

    Code:
    <app_config>
       <app>
          <name>hcc1</name>
          <max_concurrent>8</max_concurrent>
          <gpu_versions>
              <gpu_usage>.12</gpu_usage>
              <cpu_usage>0.75</cpu_usage>
          </gpu_versions>
       </app>
    </app_config>

    Every time I leave my country my numbers drops. If I can't remember the dates for leaving and returning I look at my average numbers. That said there were a 12 hour stop in sending new HCC1 units and if you had a small buffer (aka running 7.0.28 and not 7.0.42) you would suffer like I did on two rigs.

    Enjoy Cancun and have a nice Christmas and make up for the numbers when you return. I'm sure you can fit in an extra 7970 some where ;)

    Got my parts for the 3770K mATX rig today and it's crunching away on Ubuntu @ 4.3GHz/1.18v right now on the tiny stock cooler. Checked everything with an IR thermometer and wasn't able to find anything running greater than 66c, so I think I might be alright. Using lm-sensors doesn't show the core readouts but the highest temperature in there is PECI Agent 0 at 82c, so that might be around what my CPU temperature is. I'm a little disappointed that the ASRock Z77 Pro4-M uses D2PAK MOSFETs for the CPU VRM but they seem to run fairly cool since the CPU doesn't consume much power.

    Hi guys, how are you all doing with your holiday? Hope everything is well and enjoyable.

    Just starting crunching again this week, 2 HCC WUs seems well suited for my 560Ti hehe. And another 6 cores + 2 cores from my wife's laptop still running regular WU.

    Chomp...chomp..chomp.. crunch away :D

    Merry christmas and happy new year :toast:

    I did :toast:

    I think I've sold enough stuff ($700 this last week) that I can afford a treat. Maybe I'll get another Radeon HD7770/HD7850/HD7870 later on, but I can't guarantee it at this point ;)

    Congrats! :toast:

    My new "toys" will be coming next week.... at least one 7870 is in the mix for another 75-80k ppd @ 8 wu's :toast:

    Will confirm the rest when the order goes out :D

    Will restart our slug fest for Team position on/about Jan. 5th..... for now I will enjoy my slight lead while it lasts :p

    An unfair slight lead, I might add. I would be in a much better position if the school didn't make me turn everything off over break :p

    But it should be great fun once we get our new GPUs. I am determined to retake my place above you--and if it requires another GPU, so be it :toast:

    Awesome! That will be great for WCG once you load it up with 6+ WUs! :toast:
