    Finally got the i7-950 back up and crunching on all cores, just waiting to receive some GPU WU's, none yet. :( But the 7770 is installed in there and ready to crunch!!! :rockout:

    Thanks again bro! :respect: :respect:


    Congrats bro :rockout:

    What version of BOINC are you using?

    Also, make sure you have gpu checked in your WCG profile for the rig as well as your preferences in the BOINC Manager ;)

    Yup, checked all over the place.

    Got a GPU WU just now. :) Let's see what this thing can do.

    Well, the good news is that my HD7850 works fine--I've put it in the AMD X2 system and it boots and I can use the computer. The bad news is that, for whatever reason, it refuses to work in the i7-3930k. Consequently, it has to sit on my desk until the new heatsink gets here Monday or Tuesday.

    I think the board is good--it's running the two HD7770s with no complaints. The CPU runs hot, but not unbearably so. I guess these specific parts just don't get along too well?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I do hope what happened in the last contest doesn't happen this time. Gpu Wu's drying up at the end hurt us bad last time. I will have cpu cores on standby just in case to try and help.

    Indeed, that would be most unfortunate. I have all of my CPUs ready to go, and at least HCC isn't supposed to finish until June, so we should be good :)

    I added my 6950 into my i7 960 with a GTX570. I'm currently running 4wu per card with a total of 8 running at a time. Should I run 3 wu instead because of the nvidia card or would running 4wu still be ok?

    Uhh, that's an odd combination TBH. I'd try 4/card and see and then experiment with 3/card and see if it's any better :)

    alright, I had the 6950 sitting in my closet so I decided to use it for crunching. my i7 960 was the only one with an extra pci-e slot so I stuck it in. I should stop buying things because they're cheap :/

    Just wait until you start buying expensive things and can't stop. :roll:

    Also, had I not spent several hours gaming last night/today, we'd probably be neck and neck with points today Ion. :)

    I beat you by 9k today. Out of 354k, that seems pretty neck-in-neck to me ;)

    With the HD7770s from Mike going, I expect to do a bit better tomorrow :)

    After noticing that 3 machines went down at work this morning, and my parents are out attending some expo for their business that may have led them to go to the office today, I have a feeling that my mom may have demanded that some of my machines be turned off because two out of three machines in the secondary room (the 650w P55 folder and my 150w Opteron cruncher) are conveniently offline, along with my GTS 450 cruncher in the main office. The machines in the secondary room (the third machine is a 135w Dell E520 with stock X3210) are all connected to my Kill-A-Watt and a large sum of boxes of expensive things I bought are in there too, so I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. We'll see when they get home if I get ripped a new one or not. :(
