    Awesome! :toast:

    Those look like very fair requirements for the competition :)

    I might be able to get some additional prizes--we'll see. If so, it would probably be HDDs or cash prizes.

    :eek::respect:

    That's a record breaking pace! over 4k points per hour and you just started!!!

    FYI- the single rig record is around 200k ppd ATM and you may hit that within a few days as that rig spools up.

    and you may earn your WCG cruncher badge by the end of the day too- 100k BOINC points

    The nice thing is the CPU is sitting around 50C and the GPUs are about 38C.

    I believe it's only one. I only saw one line per card on the active tasks.

    Sounds like it needs tweaking. :confused:

    I will spring a brand new 7770 to NEW crunchers (less then 50,000 points as of today) that does an effort with the HW he/she have. The 25,000 points is not an qualifying requirement. I will let the decision to who won go to the Captain and has crew. A 7700 does around 20K PPD and I hope it will be used 24/7 as long there is GPU crunching work.

    We are having a really good turn out for this Challenge. :toast:


    Wow just think you can do 4 per card and they won't even break a sweat. LOL

    I posted a guild on how to do it in the gpu crunching thread if you haven't seen it already. :toast:

    I am doing 3 on my 7850. and the temps are great.

    Yep. With 7970 you should be able to use .25 for 4 WU at a time. There is mixed sucess, works for some not at all for others. If you encounter any problems let us know, you could probably be seeing over 200K ppd if all works out :eek:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I'm an idiot wrong thread. Here is a link. You use the app_info file from the gpu thread and the client from WCG site.

    Link to my thread

    Just type this in the save file box of note pad for the app_info file "app_info.xml" Also you can change the "count" to .25 4 wu's. The app_info file listed is set for 3.
