    I like mstenholm's thinking. I'll offer one of my own 7770's on the same principle, to a separate qualifier of your choosing.

    Norton, I tried to set up the 4P Opty 6176 server and I'm getting a message that there is "no HCC work avail". It ends up downloading all kinds of other projects. I have HCC on all my other rigs...wtf? Something wrong with my settings? Is your Opty rig getting HCC work or are they discriminating against 48 core servers??

    I'll find that out when I get my power back, rigs sitting all alone in the dark ATM :banghead:.... hopefully I'll get my power back by this evening.

    I do believe that it is a Quota issue though and you should have got at least some HCC wu's and new ones should be added as you finish the ones you have.

    Thanks to KieX and Delta6326 for the additional donations :toast::respect:

    That looks amazing! :toast:
    :respect:
    You guys are awesome! :toast:
    There are unfortunately intermittent shortages--I've been noticing it as well.

    I forgot to switch to HCC yesterday, but now I have everything running HCC. Cancer doesn't stand a chance!

    That should be all you need to get going :toast:

    Let us know if you have any questions--and I can't wait to see the impact of these GPUs :respect:

    Whatever you can do would be amazing! Even if it's just a Core 2 Duo, it still helps :)

    Keep us posted--I think that's what the Win8 users have been using. I haven't tried--still running my copy of Windows 7 Professional on all of my computers.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Thats it man just copy the app_info file from the first post in the gpu crunching thread. Also get the one for gpu only. And follow my steps exactly. Don't let it download any work until you get the app_info file in place.

    Maybe I will run GPU HCC WUs again during a few nights (not every night though). Daytime crunching, if any, will be regular style (GRAM, FAAH, HCCC, SN2S, DSFL, TCEP will get CPU time too).

    So I can't seem to get the gpus working. I've been in touch with [Ion] constantly in pms and he's been helping me. But what am I missing?

    I haven't done these steps yet, so it may be my problem:
    Code:
    1: Create new profile on wcg site with HCC only and make it default.
    2: Attach the rig you want to crunch the app_info with to the profile
    3: Uninstall Boinc/Wcg
    4: Delete folder under program Data
    5: reboot
    6: Install Wcg Client from Wcg site.
    7: Reboot
    8: Attach to project and immediately set to no new task.
    9: Shut down client
    10: Add your app_info file
    11: Restart Client
    12: Allow new task
    13: Reboot just because.
    In regards to the app_info file in the steps, what is it and where is that file? Sorry for all the noob questions!

    What else?
    That's for trying to get multiple WUs running on each GPU. Honestly, I'd suggest skipping that for now. Let's get your GPUs crunching first, and then we can do multiple WUs/card after that ;)

    Oh ok, that' cool with me. I really just want to get them running in the first place. I'm not that sure why it's not working yet. This is all new to me lol

    So what is it looking like now? Do you have any GPU WUs downloaded? Is the CPU still maintaining 100% load?

    CPU is at 100% most of the time, with little dips in between. Should be like in that ss i pmd you. Nothing on the gpus yet, still messing with it. :banghead:
