    I need to do the same- definitely won't need to run 3x7770's anymore :ohwell:

    I might leave 2 of them in there for now- the 2nd one shouldn't consume any power due to AMD's Zero Core power thingy (or whatever it's called).

    I've gone ahead and left all three HD7770s in the i7-920 system on the hope that we might get more GPU work before I'm able to attend to things again in August...

    7770 still has wu's left but the 3570K is on CPU now. just waiting for the gpu units to run out so i can see what my i5 2400 and 3570K can do together.

    Project selection within WCG is really your preference. The ppd will not vary significantly between doing a single project vs multiple or all projects (maybe +/-10%)

    *Note- Don't be disappointed if your ppd drops below 5k ppd on that rig.... that's normal for running cpu only projects and was considered good output before the gpu project started ;)

    Yeah what Norton is saying is true. Feels so disappointing. Seems like we forgot how much PPD was considered "good" before.

    And for those of us that only know the ppd of the GPU WUs, it can be easily viewed as disappointing. We just need to readjust our view :eek:

    Now I need to figure out whats good for my CPUs: 3770k @stock and 2600k @4.5

    OS choice can be a factor with your CPU PPD as well. I think an i7-3770K @ 4.3GHz can easily do around 7K average on Ubuntu. Windows can be a mixed bag, around 5-6.5K depending on what you are doing and if you run GPUs on F@H and stuff that uses some cores.

    CPU crunching is a war of attrition. You just keep throwing more cores into the project and you run them at as high as a clock speed as you can for as many hours in the day you can afford.

    Milestones will be few and far between, Crunching Stars may disappear, but the strategy involved in squeezing every last PPD out of your hardware may, in the end, make things more exciting :)

    I lost a bunch of WU's last night due to not meeting the deadline. I picked up some new ones, but I don't think I got back as many as I lost. :(

    Pickup an old Pentium 4 or s939 Athlon rig to crunch alongside the 3770k/2600k.... will help adjust your perspective much faster! :D

    Just swapped the Xeon over to WCG for an additional 12 threads crunching, will keep the gpu's in that rig folding for now and see how the combo runs :)

    I used to run my rigs overclocked, but now that I have to have the A/C off during the day that's not possible. The A/C just can't cool it down once it comes on. Small place, too much heat. :(

    I downvoltaged my main computer's CPU a bit (by ~0.06V, to 1.28V) today.
    We are getting very warm days at the moment, so it was starting to "sweat". After the downvoltage, it stays below 45°C most of the time (was 42°C at the time of writing). Which is down by 8°C from what it used to be. YAY! :)
    I know it should be able to run on as little as 1.22V on this clock (tested a couple of months ago), but I am not 100% sure. After the mother's day challenge, gonna test to be sure.
    Crunching is great. But crunching while making a smaller footprint on the environment by using less power is even better. ;)

    Put your rigs in the fridge.... problem solved :p- :laugh:-:roll:

    j/k- The heat down where you are sucks most of the year but that 3 months or so of cooler weather you get is very very nice :)

    Any chance of getting a local business to "host" a rig for you?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet

    And coming from someone who ran 2 s939 rigs. You would be lucky to break 1k ppd with one. :toast:

    Indeed. After a couple months of getting 600k, being down so much is a bit disappointing, but back early last fall a 2700k doing 6k PPD was very solid. I do appreciate being able to contribute to more projects though :toast:
    Or an Atom--I get all of 330 PPD out of mine, although with a system that is pretty much silent too.


    I've gone ahead and started to switch my systems to "no knew tasks". I'm not sure yet exactly what will be getting turned off for the next three months, but I don't want to lose too many WUs.

    I received Ion's Athlon X2 HP pull today, and I threw in a case with an old 80GB IDE drive and Ubuntu installation. I'm going to re-install BOINC on my laptop as well (PII X920 2.2GHz) which should be good for another 1.5K average PPD. My list of computers in TeamViewer now has a scroll bar again lol.

    I finally ran out of GPU work. The GTX260 may not have been doing much but it did help. The 5870 was a significant loss. Now I'm back to plugging away with just the i7 920 and 1090T.

    Excellent, I'm glad it came through! I hope it works well for you! :toast:
    Yup, that's about what we pay here in NC. My grandparents in central KY pay about 6.5 cents/kWH, however.

    Dyam! That is cheap - less than half what I have to pay. I would like to have such an electricity price here.
    (At the current exchange rate, I pay $0.19 for 1 kWh)

    Hello crunchers I've been away from TPU in last weeks and Crunching too. However I passed the 200k barrier and started crunching again. My average work went from 4000 to 1600 :(

    :banghead: I updated to 7.0.64 on all my rigs but for some reason I lost all the work left on my HTPC (10 or so WUs). First it wouldn't connect to client so I uninstalled it and installed again, this time it connected but it wouldn't resume the previous WUs. :confused: None of the other rigs exhibited this behavior. :cry:
