    So I decided my secondary pc will be a part-time cruncher now, probably crunching during the day hours. I'll see how it goes this month with the power bill and act accordingly from there.

    I Have a strange bug:
    I have set specific projects to crunch on, now it appears as:
    • My first cruncher pulls the projects I specified.
    • My second cruncher pulls anything but the projects I specified

    What the butt? Anyone has any idea what could be wrong? (also, when I had ALL the projects selected, my second cruncher never pulled those projects I have selected right now.)

    Make sure both machines are using the same machine profile on the WCG website.

    +1 also, if you have this box checked in your WCG profile (below) you may be getting other work or high priority work from other projects...

    Both are using the same profile.

    Yes, I have this one checked. But I expect it to do exactly what it says on the tin: give me WUs from other projects in case my selected projects can't give me anything (e.g. like HCC was when it was on the verge of running out). I am afraid that if I uncheck it, my second machine will simply stop pulling work when its WU cache runs out.

    In the end, the second rig never takes CEP2 and HPF2. I've never ever seen it working on those. Never seen it pulling either of those even when I had all the projects selected during previous month. :(
    This is simply odd.

    got this in my e mail, thought i'd post it here just as a heads up to check your email in case you wish to watch:

    [​IMG]

    Also i'm starting both rigs back up tonite after a day or 2 off, i rarely turn the pc's fully off and def not since the challenge started so i felt they; in particular the Tt TR2 500w, could use a night powered down.

    CEP2 has some extra requirements:

    "Project Specific Settings

    The Clean Energy Project - Phase 2 is limited on how many workunits a computer can have downloaded at a time and what minimum bandwidth the computer must have in order to receive any workunits. Changing this value from the default of 1 will override both of these restrictions."

    I did some hardware re-arranging today, and took two of my oldest systems offline (P4 630 and Athlon 64 3400+). I moved the GTX 470 and 465 along with my TX750 to my ASUS A8N32-SLI where they both fold happily, and moved the 7770 to my 3770K/Z77 Pro4-M/GTX 660Ti rig since most older boards absolutely hate the AMD 7xxx cards. I'm still using a ridiculous amount of energy, but for around 400K F@H PPD and sub-20K WCG PPD, I'm going to keep chugging along until I'm forced to trim down the fleet.

    Got another GA-880GM-USB3 board for my other 1055t. It's currently running on a POS Asus board which throttles even on stock settings. Hopefully I'll be able to push it to 3.5Ghz too.

    Yeah, I know. I have it greatly increased for my both machines (as they use the same profile...)
    Bandwidth isn't a problem either (got 100 Mbps up/down). This also wouldn't explain why it never pulls HPF2. :(

    HPF2? That project is winding down and nearly finished.. available work units may dropping off.

    I get plenty for my first machine.
    And besides, as I said - over the whole time my second box is crunching (that is, since 18th of April) it never pulled a single CEP2 or HPF2 WU. :(

    Over three days of reporting, 21st through today, this ASUS lappy is averaging 2165 points PD. If I had this thing plugged in 24/7 it would probably jump up quite a bit.

    When I am on battery, it crunches but, at about a fourth of the CPU Turbo speed.

    Makes me wonder just how good this thing is? This thing, part time, is out pacing my three desktop, 4 core, farm. Not super surprising but, super cool!

    Actually, towards the end of my last run with the Farm, the farm and the upgrades were combining for totals over 2 grand. However, that is three PSU's running 24/7. I don't know how many hours a day this is plugged in. When I sleep, this does too. So, definitely not 24/7.

    As I sit here, at the WiFi Local Coffee shop, I daydream a bit. I can't help but be a little amazed at what I am doing compared to when I was in grade school thinking these new Apple II's were cool! :lovetpu:

    Hey Arjai, haven't had a chance to say that I'm glad you are back up and running buddy. :)

    Meanwhile, I got "hit" by a ripped tendon in my right index finger.
    At this point, I can't help it but to laugh nervously at the situation. :roll:

    Seems like a string of bad luck for a lot of us. :(

    clocked the i5 2400 @ 3.4ghz on all cores for 24/7 usage:

    I pull 3.5Ghz from my 2320. You can surely go higher.

    most likely in the future, 3.4 is my "you gotta start somewhere" point :p

    Also, that Hyper 101i is only a bit better than stock cooling. But i did add a 2nd 80mm to it so i'll see what the temps are in the morning after crunching all night. I may get a better HSF down the road.

    You're sure accumulating a lot of those AMD PhII CPUs :toast:

    I'm quite fond of the i3s that I have---pretty much dead silent even at load, decent output (~1.8k) and lower power usage. But the six & 8 cores do a lot from one system :)

    I've been carpet bombing eBay with $50 bids on X6s :D Managed to win 2 so far (a 1090t -lucky!!!- and a 1055t).

    I'd like to add a 4th cruncher but these 3 should hold fine for a while. Besides I have to check the power bill before that.
