    How many work units do you run per card? You have 12 strong 4.7ghz threads to spread those 2 7970's over. What kind of completions times do you get?

    If tasks get stuck, suspend and restart the task in question.

    AFAIK CEP WUs take about 7-10 hours on a Core (more on older CPUs) and those are the bigger ones, anything else going above 10 hours is getting stuck for sure. For comparison HPFP2 takes 6 hours, HCC CPU 3 hours on an Athlon II @ 3GHz.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys by Sunday all my rigs will be shut down for awhile. It will probably be about 2 weeks or so by the time I get them back up crunching again. By end of day Sunday all buffers will be empty. :toast:

    Tomorrow night I'll be switching my 7870LE over to F@H for the Chimp Challenge :rockout:
    So my ppd will drop but it's okay since it's for a good cause :)

    And to all crunchers interested in Crysis 3, check the giveaway link in my sig; crunchers get an extra entry bonus :D

    At least for now, I have the Opty 4P back up and crunching---we'll see if I can handle the heat, but I'd like to get some more use out of it before it gets shut down for summer.

    Good work [Ion], get that bad baby crunching; no rest for the weary!
    And maybe just look at the heat as your own personal sauna: enjoy it, time to detox! :roll:

    Oh, but it's so hot in here :(
    Currently, I have going:
    - 3 laptops
    - 3930k @ 4.6 + HD7930
    - 2xE5420 + GTX460 + GTX550TI (folding on GPUs)
    - i7-860 + 8800GT + 9800GTX (folding on GPUs)
    - 3770k + 3 G92 cards (folding on GPUs)
    - 2700k + 2xGTX470 (WCG, b/c otherwise too hot)
    - 2xE5420 + HD7850 + HD7770 (WCG)
    - Opty 4P
    - Atom
    - AMD X2 + 9600GSO
    - E6400 + 8800GTS G92 + 8800GT

    All in one dorm room. The heat and the noise :shadedshu

    I've also been offered a job at SAS for the summer:

    So even if I have to power down much of my farm over the summer (read probably all but one system) I'll be back with a vengeance in August :D

    That's all you have running? Pfft, I thought you were running some real systems :laugh:
    JK, that's amazing and impressive; I understand the heat totally. Also, it's awesome to see you split the systems between WCG and F@H :respect:

    Congrats on the offer :) I don't want to see you go inactive though! :rockout:

    And that's not counting the 920/3HD7770s & i3/2950 in Mike's room ;)

    Thanks! In the best possible world, I'd be able to bring one or two of the i7s to SAS and leave them there and suck up company power. I'm not sure if that would be allowed---but there's sure no way I'll be able to use a constant 3000w once I'm home and we have to pay for it :ohwell:
    I won't be inactive though--I'll probably have the i7 laptop and 3930k still going, and maybe the 2700k & 3770k overnight.

    I think there is a point where you just need to condense your rigs to more power efficient platforms. 3000w is insane. That would cost $192.19 a month where I live which has half the price of he national average. :respect:

    Absolutely. The only way that this is possibly feasible is with free power in the university dorm. The AMD 4P is 500w easy, the G92 GPUs I have running FAH are probably 100w each (maybe a bit more), and there are eight of them, the GTX470s are probably close to 200w each. So none of that helps. And I just have fifteen systems going, so it's just a lot of stuff. When I head home in May, I'm definitely getting rid of the old dual cores, and hopefully selling my HP workstation, the i7-860 or 920. For crunching, the 2700k and 3770k are pretty darn efficient--under 150w each with no GPUs. Maybe 200 or 220w for the 3930k.

    You mentioned heat. My two systems, mainly 3 gpu's can heat up my 500 square ft living space to 80f with no heat on and it being 35f at night and 50f doing the day outside. Your dorm is probably smaller than that. Mine only use ~800w at the wall.

    You know what would be cool is to try to get the most ppd out of a 1000w budget or something like that.

    I hope so. I also hope the gpu units hold out for a little while longer so I can see what my rigs can really do after the rebirth. I am aiming for 150 to 200k with 3 rigs and 4 gpus. :toast:

    Even if they start running down shortly it may not be a big deal....WCG is hinting at an exciting new project ;)

    Wish I knew more about it though....

    Now that's what I want to hear! I've run out of new badges to get, so any new project, but particularly a GPU-based one, would be awesome. Maybe we'll eventually get a HCC2?

    I do wonder why they don't provide more information--given what we do for them, I think that's a reasonable request...

    Lurk around the WCG forums for awhile- there has been talk of something coming soon... the feeling is that it may be GPU based but I don't think it's HCC2.

    There's also plenty of discussions regarding why we don't need to know about a project until a public release has been made about it :ohwell:

    And so, after spending more than 24 hours in that Gaming Extravaganza, me and my friends got really tired. Thus, I just got back home. And now crunching like "normal" again :toast:

    P.S. it turns out I got sneak-filmed and put on YouTube while I was there. Yes, that is me playing Borderlands with two friends [on Leenox] :laugh:
    And it was funny how my Nvidia 3D Vision ready monitor became a major attraction w/ tens of people asking me to let them try out how it looks/feels like :D
    We all agreed Witcher 2 looks the best on 3D Vision, with Crysis 3 taking the second place, heh :)
