    Watch your rigs folks..............

    WCG reporting is sluggish here atm- needed to manually update all of my rigs 2-3x over the last hour or so to get my completed wu's to report! :shadedshu

    Are you getting any GPU WU's? They have stopped coming in for me. :mad:

    Should be working again. Mine just updated. First attempt stated the server was down for maintenance.

    I am shutting the second rig down to replace the Dark Knight cooler with a Corsair H100i and add a fan controller. Shouldn't be down too long:)

    mike, I'm sorry to hear about your bandwidth issues. I just can't imagine 5GB a month....I can go through that daily without thinking about it. The CEP2 WUs I'm doing result in a gigabyte of uploading a day easy... :eek:

    I'm down another rig right now--the USB stick that I was running one HP off of went out. I'll be installing Windows on it when I have time (maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow).

    Guess who installed Windows 7 this morning on the "self erasing" SSD, patched it, got programs set up AND took a system image? This guy. 7950 is showing 10 of those WUs at a time what 1792 shaders at 1175MHz/1.2v are like. No driver crashing BS yet like Windows 8 always did, and the SSD seems alright except for some rare sluggish boots. Going to keep my working files in my Dropbox folder and have already set up automatic system images and backups for once a week. No more being a dummy and not backing up stuff more often.

    I can see from the first Free-DC update that I'm not the only one that ran dry yesterday. For me it seems like people with multiple 7970 all have a to small buffer when they make "maintenance". I went empty and stayed like that for 3 hours and 20 minutes. My question to HammerON, t_ski and manofthem is - how big is your buffer (setting and real run time) and did you run dry. If anybody else with multiple GPUs ran dry yesterday I like to know.

    It seems like at least Sekebob thinks that the buffer will go up to 3000 WU but in two of my three rigs I can't get more then 600 and with 150 WUs completed each hour I ran dry three times the past 10 days.

    And, of course I forgot to change Windows 7's stupid power settings so it hibernated during the night, and had to be rebooted twice because it screwed up the AMD driver and throttled the hell out of the card. All fixed now though. :)

    Saw your posts on the WCG forum- I didn't actually count them but my 3x7770 rig definitely looks like it has 600 wu's per card (there's a s**tload of them). Hoping they recognize the needs of the 7970 users and open up the max number a bit more for you guys :D

    Those seem to get me every time I set up a new rig :shadedshu Glad you got it worked out!!! :toast:

    Looks like my WU completion time is about 8:30-9:30 with 0.1 GPUs and 0.8 CPUs. Is this pretty good? I'm also thinking about changing the CPU usage to 0.5 so I can have 2 GPU WUs run cleanly on each thread and have 3 more threads for normal projects. I kinda miss Windows 8 and its fluidity but I'd rather have 80K more PPD and I should have switched back a long time ago. Maybe AMD/Microsoft will get whatever problem is fixed soon and I can go back to Win8 24/7.

    I have a 7950 too (@1050 MHz but with a 3.3 GHz CPU) running 10 GPU with 8 threads. The run time is 9-10 min so your time looks good. Your suggestion will not give you more points but it would help other projects.

    My WUs finish around the same time as yours. I too wish Windows 8 would start playing nice with multi WUs so I could get back to the prettiness of 8 and all its goodness.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am putting another rig together today. Also I had a psu go out in one of my other rigs. Which sucks big time. You would think a decent 600 watt unit would power a x4 rig with a gtx 280 in it. Nope burned it. I now have my 700 watt unit I just got for my win xp build in it until I come up with yet another psu.




    Update:

    Guys meet Selene, my new cruncher. She is just getting warmed up and has upgrades in the works. She will be my main rig when all is said a and done.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have it housed in one of my dragon cases for now. it's running my 1055t @ 3.5 temporarily. The board is a Gigabyte 990fxa UD3 (sweet board). Also running the 7850 temporarily. I just wanted to mainly get the board up ad going to check it out and play with it as it is going to be the center piece of my next build. Also this way I can get the drives set and the os installed so when the main part that isn't available yet does come available I don't have to worry about that. I can just do the build and fire it up.

    And she already has 5 pages of pendings so far. :toast:

    My cruncher is down for a bit. Had to use some parts out of it for a friend. It'll be back up soon.

    I have that same issue at least 50% of the time that I set up a new rig :p
    At least this is your main system so you caught it right away ;)
    That's about a minute or two faster than I'm pulling with the HD7950 and i3-2100 (although your card is certainly clocked higher, too). It seems like more than .4 threads/WU is beneficial (I'm giving the HD7930 .667)
    Awesome new setup! :toast:

    Guys, I'm sorry to have to do this, but I might have to shut down part of my farm over the next few days. The heat is just phenomenal. First to go would be all of the dual cores, and then if that wasn't enough, the 2700k/GTX470s. This would be just until ambients drop off a bit.

    Welcome Nokiacrazi

    10 WUs for your GPU and you are doing 100k PPD. Have a look at this http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=174138 and if you have any questions just ask just make sure you have installed 7.0.42 or later which can be done when it is running but needs a restart. Remember to run the program mentioned in 3) before you do the restart. Not critical, you can always restart you PC again.

    I know it took a bit but finally got the FX rig crunching. Unfortunately the money I had to buy a video card hard to go towards a new alternator for my car which I just got running after being down about a week. But anyhow, that's eight more cores at it. :rockout:

    Sure hope so man. For now I need a wireless adapter though. Or try what you told me with an ethernet cable. Just from one PC to another right?
