    The 920 Mad Shot is running (Win7 @ 3.5Ghz iirc) and the 930 I'm running (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS @ 3.2Ghz) both seem to be in the 4k+ ppd range- our stats are open at FreeDC/BOINCStats if you want to check.

    Are you running all projects?

    On this subject- My FX-8350 rig's output has dropped by around 20%.... not sure what's going on with it but have set it to no new tasks for now to let it run out of work and will start it with some fresh wu's later this week to see if it helps?

    I have a 3770K that's only putting our 2.5K, where my others are putting out 5K+

    That's very odd...my 3770k, even running a FAH GPU (560TI448) is still doing over 5k PPD---was doing 5.8k with no GPUs.

    I have it running WCG just like I have always done but I will keep and eye on it. The good thing is any points are better than no points :)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have mine running at 3.5ghz. Also I am in the process of moving it over to Linux. I already have the drive setup w/linux and everything installed. Just waiting on it to run the wu's out under windows then I will plug the linux drive in and let it rock. :toast:

    You should get a 20% boost in ppd at minimum :)

    Are there are system info and monitoring utilities like CPU-Z, GPU-Z, or HW monitor available in Ubuntu?

    Would be cool if I could monitor temps, etc. in the Linux rigs

    Not exactly simple, but should do what you want.

    Suh-weet! I can finally monitor my CPU voltage and whatnot! (could only monitor the temp and power usage before)

    Four eight-core AMD Opterons, 32GB RAM, a Supermicro server board. Norton purchased it for me from someone in Connecticut and shipped it down to me.

    Well, the Kiev is behaving oddly--I left it crunching last night and this morning it wasn't responding to SSH requests and the display didn't give anything. I rebooted it and it seems to be doing OK (although given that it's doing all of the GPU rendering on the CPU, it's miserably slow to actually use). I'll have to keep an eye on it....

    I think, even if you have to reboot more than once a day, which you should be REQUIRED to do, it should pump out enough points to set you firmly in the top two for pie.

    My quest for TPU/ WCG domination has taken another hit. :eek:

    I now have to plan even bigger. :twitch:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Linux should need to be rebooted everyday. Hell I left my rig running for months without reboots. Also he needn't worry about top 2 in pie as he has been sitting on top for awhile now. This just extends his lead a little. :toast:

    Methinks, Agent00Skid could give ION some competition. Based on the Allprojectstats.com site.

    Not so sure I am correctly reading the daily stats number correctly, why is Agent00Skid NOT on the pie chart?

    All these stat thingies...sometimes I hate stats. Sometimes. Like this morning, when I should be doing something other than trolling around here!!

    I was able to run Memtest on the Opty setup for about two and a half hours without issues, so at least it doesn't lock up doing that. I've suspended BOINC :)cry:) and it's just running Ubuntu now; I'll see what is/isn't happening after class. The memory checked out fine. Now that WCG isn't running I'm no longer getting graphical artifacts--I hope that WCG isn't messing with anything. I suppose that I can try reinstalling on another HDD if this works, but otherwise I don't have a lot of ideas for what to try...

    Very surprising that you're having issues with it :confused:

    Rig ran fine here until the Mint install took a crap on the HDD I used (HDD with Mint wouldn't run on any rig when this happened but I installed and ran Ubuntu on it just fine). It was slow to start and ran through a bunch of stuff to boot, which took 4-5 minutes, but crunched 100% fine. I did have 2 instances where the rig hung up but a restart brought it right back?

    Which Mint did you use? I have Debian Edition Cinnamon where the installer would just die part of the way through. I will try another disk (I have a spare 64GB SSD) later to see what happens.

    Crunching works fine for a bit, but then I leave it unattended (at night or during class) and it locks up. I was SSH'd into it this morning and then the SSH connection just died while I was away--gone for no more than two hours.

    That's the version I loaded on the HDD- Mint/Debian but just used the std Mint desktop not the Cinnamon. Did you load from the USB port near the LAN ports/etc. or the one on the board? I used the one near the LAN port but idk if that matters?

    On another matter... anyone else having issues uploading CEP2 work? I'm trying to get the remote rigs to report a few of them while I'm on-site but they keep going into "retry in xx:xx:xx" mode after a few minutes every time I try to send one in :banghead:

    Sorry for the double post...
