    I think Buck ordered at least one or both of the boards new and scoured various forums for cheap Opterons. I'll let him speak for himself, though. ;)

    Buck, you had the Hyper 212s with the custom mounting hardware you made, right? I thought I remembered that from one of your threads, but it's too late for me to search for it right now lol.

    Supermicro Hsomething-F (can check after class) with the [H] BIOS on it. When I got the setup shipped down here from Norton it was at 2.2GHz or so and it would lock up under load when left for 24 hours or so---I downclocked it to stock and it's run stable since then.

    Sometime during last night WCG stoppeded crunching and the times on the WU's stood still.. The PC was responsive and allowed a reboot so I am guessing it wasn't a stability issue but maybe bionc just said to hell with it HAHA. It has been doing so good as of the past two or three days will 3K ppd and that is the highest I have seen since I built this POS.

    For those of you who forced CEP2-only workunits for the competition, here's a breakdown of the average points per hour of runtime for each project (and where to change it).

    Code:
    CEP2		150.11
    FAAH		94.08
    SNTS (int)	160.23
    CCWP (int)	127.32
    HFCC (int)	119.19

    Hey Team,

    Now that the CEP2 challenge is done... is there any interest in joining up for the WCG 9th Birthday Challenge (11/16 thru 11/22) that SETI.Germany is sponsoring?

    http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/challenge/viewTeamChallenge.do?challengeId=6195

    We participated in prior years and we came very close, with the help of the GPU work, to winning last years WCG 8th Birthday Challenge (2nd place) :cool:

    Link to the 8th Birthday Challenge results:

    Post your interest here first- I will start a planning thread if there is enough interest :)

    Gladly! I'll still be here at school, so I'll be in 100% as always :toast:

    Maybe we'll even get a new project or even GPU stuff by then.


    It turns out that my 3770k setup had locked up or something--but it's been restarted and is crunching again.

    Having some numbers issues myself. I suspect that it's due to sig rig running on an old, slow and mostly filled up 160GB drive at the moment. Any tips on moving WU data over on to a different drive? (Edit: I just remembered how to use Google.)

    It might have been adjusted when we had GPU WU's

    There weren't any changes in the formula. However, if you're close to a star it may come and go with the periodic daily updates (i.e. your 4th star may show after the pm or end of day update but could disappear in the am).

    So...the last couple days I've been dealing with my AMD rig, keeps rebooting info the BIOS screen. Tried all sorts of different settings. Its a Asrock 990FX Extreme 3 board. I've tried different RAM and that didn't help. Any ideas you guys have for me? Its not over clocked at all.

    A lot of complaints @ewEgg on that board:
    ASRock 990FX Extreme3 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEF...

    Asrock does respond and supplies detailed things to try in the feedback section.... maybe look through there to see if others have same issue?

    What psu are you using?

    Yeah, I bought it off a friend a mine, he RMA'ed it, they replaced the board and I got it off him for like $30, he had built a new PC by the time he got it back. PSU I believe is a Dell 450W I got from ION a while back, shouldn't be the issue, he ran it with much more power usage than I am.
