    When I have wanted to offer crunchers first dibs on some items I post something like this:
    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2863628&postcount=21951

    I will discuss this with the mods and see what they feel about my post, however erocker is right.
    I do not list a price, but ask that interested parties PM me.

    Exchanged my 6950 for this:
    1055t
    GA-880GM-USB3 AM3+
    Hyper 212
    8GB HyperX blu 1333

    6 more cores for the farm. An the 1090t will find a new home in the 880GM. Hopefully I'll break 4Ghz on it.

    :peace:

    Agreed. Team forums are not B/S/T. We have always listed the hardware and asked for PM's for pricing.

    Hey guys, I am having trouble getting my 2500k system to do 4 work units. Right now it only does two at a time. I have the WCG on the website settings on the default "use 36 core."

    Hey Norton, I know this is off topic since it is about F@H, but what drivers do you you use on your AMD 7xxx cards? I just fired up my 7770 on a single core Athlon 3400+ and 1GB DDR, and I'm getting 21K PPD with Catalyst 13.5b2. I thought your reported 10K PPD seemed awfully low for your 7770(s).

    I'm using 12.6's on all of my rigs... probably not the best driver performance-wise but they're super stable and for the WCG gpu work the performance was about the same as any of the newer drivers.

    Seems as if I may need to update the drivers if I want better F@H output :eek:

    Yeah, I think you are missing out on quite a lot of driver improvement, as I remember getting my first XFX 7950 in June 2012 and the drivers were horrific for me. I've had great luck with the 2013 drivers even when HCC1 was going on. You might as well try them out (13.5b2).

    Sounds good-will likely wait until the weekend so I don't lose the 8 threads that are crunching on the i7-920 (i.e.. in case I run into a problem)

    Thanks! :toast:

    I just allocated another thread to WCG on my 2600K/dual 7950 machine (now 6 threads for WCG and 2 unused threads for F@H results in 92-100% CPU usage). I lost 2 cores of the 1100T due to the 460s, but moved my 939 X2 4400+ to Ubuntu. I am considering moving the GTX 470 back to the P4 630 machine and making the ASUS/HP combo a pure Ubuntu cruncher again. Crunching is pretty much impossible on my old dual cores when running F@H due to the CPU usage.

    What is the difference between "Pending Validation" and "Pending Verification" states?
    Without additional context, those two phrases seem to mean the exact same thing if You'd ask me. :confused:

    I haven't seen a "Pending Verification" option in the drop down menu for the results filter. Where're you seeing this?

    I believe the difference is in the minimum Quorum vs replication (i.e. the Quorum may be 1 results but 2 results are required- this would be "Pending Verification")

    Pending Validation looks like the Quorum= replication

    They pretty much mean the same thing imo and this is just a guess... I don't know for sure :eek:

    This is my understanding of the difference.

    Pending validation is when it, for most projects, need the second client of the WU to finish. Pending verification, I believe, is when the 2 clients for the WU have returned different results, and then needs a 3rd client to verify it.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I actually ran 3 separate circuits in my Computer room in my new house just so I could crank up more rigs if I wanted to. :toast: I also have room in the panel box for 6 more circuits of needed.

    That's more like it! :toast:


    I'm gonna talk with my boss to see if I can't bring the 2700k to work and stick it under my desk to crunch :D

    I can't believe that you were running old Pentium-4 based systems and older...what was the electricity usage of that like??
