    The first big spike in june, everyone had really high ppd. Then my ppd really drops off because I had several rigs off for a few days. Then they came back on. Wait, maybe I am getting a whole bunch of wu's veryfied these last day or two from when I had them all down.

    Takes a few days for a rig to spool up output so that looks normal based on your description.

    @Brandon- those are decent cases.... not sure of the quality of the window though?

    I expect 5-6k rit ght now with the rigs I have going. I am one rig down. If I had the other going I would expect 7-8k. I hit 12k yesturday and 10k today, double my 5-6k expectation.

    You have 4 rigs going according to FreeDC and ppd should be around 10k or more from them @100%

    I haven't seen any of the windowed versions, but I have three of the Source 210s and they all work great. Not a ton of space, but cheap, look OK, and decent cooling.

    Changed the CCTV PC case to one that can fit a Hyper 212+. Ready to drop in an 8350 as soon as I get another. :peace:

    Also OCed the 620 to 3.33Ghz. :rockout:

    Sig rig here recovering from a very hot day or two and a string of invalid results. It's been put back to stock clocks and has been returning valid results now, but the points are still heading down. Any insight? Are invalid results still being validated or something?

    DSFL went intermittent and now we only have CEP2 and FAAH. Which both produce less points than DSFL, it seems. On AMD, at least. And if what [Ion] said to me once is true, on Intels, too.
    A mix of DSFL, CEP2 and FAAH got "replaced" with a mix of CEP2 and FAAH. And so the scores go down.
    My own scores got down by ~4k PPD, too (~13k -> ~9k). For me FAAH is the least scoring project of all. Even CEP2 scores better for the same CPU time.

    There You go! An explanation =]

    It takes time for the server to process results.

    Exactly, hat. And how long it takes to validate them partially depends on how quickly the other hosts send back their results of the WU.

    Yup, PPD is certainly down on Windows systems too:
    [​IMG]
    This is my i7-2600, which used to run all DSFL but now does all FAAH. I run VMs on it from time to time as well, but no more now than before, so that wouldn't explain the decline. The trends on the i7-2600k running Mint are similar.

    Phew, I had a long day full of adventure...
    Not sure if You are interested in details, but the aftermath is: I ended up trading my FX-8120 for a FX-8320
    Thus, my [almost] dedicated cruncher is running that now :toast:

    Some of my results were definitely invalid. I expected a PPD drop, but not this much. I guess it's invalid results being returned plus FAAH (which I've been seeing a lot of). Seems to be on the rise again and I'll go back to clocking it up as soon as I have a better way to stress and validate clocks. (Any tips for Linux?)

    Invalids will do a couple of things:

    - lower your ppd (obviously)

    - lower the trust level of your results... i.e. increase the quorum level and put more of your results into pending verification and only giving you the credit when other crunchers have run the same wu.

    Overclocking too much can cause errors- lower your overclock a bit and see if the invalids and pending verification wu's start to drop*

    *Note- this may take a couple of days running to see a difference

    New cruncher on it's way! the 2500k will be alive as a server.

    Only issue, is that I will need to install BOINC 5.10.45 as the server will become one day a domain (for GPO testing). Instead, I might just run a virtual machine that will be Domain controller for testing and keep the server in a non domain.

    My numbers will be moving around a bit over the next few weeks. I'm doing a reconfigure of one rig and prepping a new build... still deciding if the new build is going to be cruncher #8 or if I'll take one of the others down to sell or donate.

    Also, the heat is getting to be an issue at home so I may need to idle one of my rigs here and drop down to two for awhile (for five total)

    I dunno how you managed that, but it's pretty awesome :D
    That's starting to be a lot of crunchers to manage :eek:
    Great to see that you have so much going!

    If all goes well, the rebirth of rig #7 should be complete tonight.... kinda hot here though and I've been working outside today so I'm a little beat up. :eek:

    Managing is no biggie- build it, get it stable, monitor ppd and that's about all I do to them. :)

    Is this your FX8350 that's coming back tonight?

    I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to get a pair of FX8350 systems or spring for a single i7-3930k. PPD with the FXs should be at least 25% better (~10k for an i7 vs ~12.5k for two FXs) but at the cost of twice as many systems and twice as much electricity. Decisions decisions decisions.

    Both of the 8350's are running... working on a different AM3/AM3+ setup atm. Will post screenshots once it's running :)

    Now for you:

    4P= 4x12 core= 48 cores= 1 rig= 35k ppd= win ;)

    You have no idea how tempted I am by the thought of that :D
    Four of the sixteen core Opterons would be even better :D

    12 cores are much easier to find at decent prices than the 16's are AFAIK ;)

    TFW my neighbors decide to drill a hole in their wall and *herp derp* drilled right through a wire that powers my apartment, my parents' apartment and some other minor things not owned by any of us.
    Since they are too incompetent / retarded, me and my pops were the ones to fix that whole mess. After a lot of what we call "wall archeology", we managed to finally fix it.

    Thus, the FX-8320 pair was offline for hours today. Bleeeeegh.

    Are You referring to the trade?
