    If you're already running the Help Conquer Cancer (HCC) work unit on your gpu then you're all set. :toast:

    If you run another rig w/o gpu crunching capability then just adjust your WCG profile to run the HCC work unit only (check the box to run other projects if no work for HCC is available so you don't lose crunching time on other projects- this is optional)

    I guess I could put all my rigs on HCC, anyway, they are crunching for everything so why not HCC for a couples of days :)

    it starts November 8th?

    edit, I saw the 2nd link not first one haha

    Well, I'll get my rig ready tomorrow ;) I'll modify my profil to get only Help Conquer Cancer , on all rig ;)

    I will put my two working laptops on this. A 2640m and 2920xm processors, the laptop with a 920xm shuts down after 10 minutes so I won't use that one. But I'll bring out my old laptop with a u-7700 core2 running at 1.33. 5 years old but still running like Popeye.

    Do you need a 64-bit client for 64-bit OS, and how do you get the graphics enabled?

    Does OC matter?

    I think I may have the GPU part figured out...

    I'll say, run those 3 bad boy 7970s and you'll be set!

    So if I have time tomorrow, I'll take a look into it and see if I can join up for the challenge.

    well never mind, I found how to switch, just go into your profile and switch from there.

    I am ready....

    Just head to "My Projects" and choose HCC. Also, choose "
    If my computer can process work on my graphics card, then please send me work to run on my graphics card for the projects that I have selected above."

    that can be done here: https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms/viewMyProjects.do

    Hey Team- Thanks for helping out while my power is out.:toast: :respect:

    Any new members joining up for this feel free to contact any active Team member on details on how to join the Team and get your rig setup to run WCG.

    I will do my best to post up what I can/when I can until my power comes back at home

    Keep an eye on the 1st 2 posts in this thread for any updates and details once we get rolling.

    Great! I crunched on a SU7300 for a bit--just be careful about the temperatures, these ultra-thins don't have great cooling. Mine hit nearly 90C crunching :toast:
    A 64-bit client is not required, but is encouraged. It gives about 10% higher points (part due to running a tad faster, part due to benchmarking higher).

    OC does matter. That's why I OC all of my systems that support it--I usually aim for a 25-30% OC, as that can usually be done stably and doesn't increase temperatures too much.

    The GPU part is where you'll really shine. Those HD7970s will blow everything else away. Like 40k PPD each. Maybe more. Whereas a 4.4GHz i7 quad will get ~6-6.5k doing CPU work.
    Amen! For Stan's sake, and everyone else dealing with cancer, let's do this thing! :cry: :toast:
    A Q6600 is still very solid HW ;)
    Let us know if you have any questions--help is just a post away ;)

    All set here also, all my rigs, only HCC, and if no work takes other work!

    So if this can go, this is about 150k per day on WCG, from my stats. :)

    I am not going to be able to participate this time. Wished I could throw these 6950's in the mix but with these windows 8 problems and now router issues. I am pretty much limited to one 2600K at work.

    hope I get things fixed soon.
