    You'll love it--even the HD7850 is very fast for WCG :toast:

    Just checked the event log and everything looks to be good, I found no errors in the log. THe completion times look about the same :(

    Kinda has me stumped.

    They could be trapped in "pending validation" in your WCG account and this is likely the case...especially if you found no other issues.

    Alright guys, the AMD 4P and the i7-860 are both shut down pending sane temperatures. I've found a way to get the AC on, but it's going to be 86 degrees today, so I have to shut the window, and the AC unit simply isn't designed for quite this much heat :p

    Depending on how the room is after class, I may also have to shut down the E6400 and X2 4400+ and their GPUs. Then possibly the 3770k or 2700k later one. I don't want to, but I also just can't tolerate room temperatures near combustion levels.

    Easy fix- transfer colleges... ever been to Machias, Maine :p

    I lived in Florida for 2 years, went to college in Orlando, couldn't stand the heat down there!!!! :twitch:

    It's unfortunate that Spring/Summer has to roll around and make our expensive, highly-complex space heaters a bit of a nuisance. I'd love to run my rig 24/7, but the i7-920 and 2x GTX 480's just pump out heat. I can't even leave the rig running with the room's window closed, lest I want to return to HWINFO reporting my CPU's max temp @ 90C and the ambient temperature in the case of 70C. I have a sneaking suspicion that the constant heat will eventually kill a component, I'm just hoping it's not something too substantial. I can't believe how hot the SLI bridge gets and the PSU's casing gets pretty toasty.

    Yeah, my Reference 7870 completes 10 WUs in 12:30 while a pair of 7770s complete 10 in 17:00. I expect to be pulling 60K per card so I should be getting 120-150K ppd once everything is set up.

    I ran 10 on mine for awhile but found out that I got nearly identical results with 8 wu's and a lot less lag on the desktop... my 7870's are running about 70-72k ppd atm.

    To tell the truth I haven't experienced any lag. With my 6950 I did but not with the 7870. Yesterday I was watching a BD on it and I didn't notice any hiccup (maybe the 1200Mhz OC helps) but if 8 WUs give the same results I'll give it a shot. Using 13.2B5

    I appreciate the thought, but I like the thought of getting an engineering degree ;)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys 2 of my rigs have fully throttled down and the other 2 should be finished by the time I get home tonight. So my numbers are going to fall to 0 for awhile. But i'll be back in a couple weeks stronger then I was as am going to do some system reconfigure once I set up the new system stable. I am going to downsize to 2 or 3 rigs but utilize them more efficiently then I was. I should be able to atleast double my output. As I was only doing about half of which the rigs could do.

    Yup. Even though I've been thoroughly kicked out of the pie charts by now I'm still surprised at even the 5870's performance.

    It's a fast mover so it won't last long...

    On the laptop for now- should be able to restart within the hour :)

    The i7-860 is back up again, but the AMD 4P is still down. Given temps ATM, I don't think I could possibly have another 500w running :eek:

    probably the same one that passed through here Monday night and yesterday. We ended up getting about a foot of snow and the high yesterday was 8F!!!

    Hey guys, I've got a bit of a problem.
    I have a couple of network outages tonight and I noticed something REALLY weird - a bit after I lose my internet connection, all the BOINC jobs stop - they just hang doing nothing: my CPU and GPU go idle and the elapsed/remaining counters stop. Meanwhile the manager shows all those jobs as "running". If I try to restart the manager (along with turning off jobs on exit), then when I run the BOINC manager, it hangs on "communication with BOINC client" message. Clicking "cancel" makes the manager completely hang and I end up having to kill it.
    And as soon as my connection goes up again, it starts working again with no problems at all.

    What the hell? Why is it depending on having a network connection that much? Because of this, as soon as my internet goes out, I can't crunch :ohwell:
    Lost a quite a few hours of crunching time tonight because of it :shadedshu

    P.S. the night before, forgot to turn on GPU activity for the night after watching a movie. Lost 7 hours of GPU crunching that way. But somehow, still managed to get a decent score yesterday. *sigh* odd.

    It's your "pending validation" backlog.

    Oh Teh YAY!™

    Just ordered a new mobo - Crosshair V Formula-Z! Gonna use it on my "main" rig and use my current one to build a cruncher w/ my FX-8120 which is currently "on vacation". Ordered 4GiB of ram for the cruncher, hope that will be enough. (Judging from the memory use of crunching jobs on my "main" rig, 4 GiB should do nicely.)
    I hope I won't have the same VRM issues on the V formula as I have on my current mobo. It made OC a real PITA.
    Although, the mobo will only arrive in two weeks =|
    My supplier promised to nag the distributor / importer to get it sooner, but no guarantee that will work out.

    Also, decided to get a better CPU cooler. Assuming they both support AM3+ (IDK), which one should I take:
    Zalman CNPS11X or Thermaltake Frio OCK?
    The Thermaltake one is almost twice as expensive, though =|

    I'd say given the prices, go with the Zalman--it's still a very solid cooler and for half the price it seems like an easy choice :toast:

    4GB is fine--one of my dedicated crunchers is (somehow) running just fine on 2GB. 4GB is plenty for most any cruncher that we'd be putting together. One of my old C2Ds even runs on 1GB.

    It sounds like you guys don't have very good access to parts in Lithuania :(

    Hosts aren't showing on my Free-DC page. I logged into WCG but the setting to show hosts is setup correctly. Anyone missing hosts too?

    Same here- It's been like that for a few days now- BOINCStats website is still showing hosts*

    *reminder- ppd/totals and such are slightly different but are comparable ;)

    @ Vinska- either one of those coolers would be fine.... Xigmatek's are my favorites for AMD rigs, if you have access to those I recommend checking prices :)
