WOOT good work team almost 2M
I got my Internet back on after a week and a half,
so I can start crunching again.
I've updated my Cpu, I swapped out my thee old Cele E1200 to a E7500 and its crunching away @ 4.1GHZ
Once I get another Vid Card I should have the E1200 back online also.
Sweet! That E7500 should be killer at 4.1ghz (probably twice what my E6550 does, so probably about 1.2k PPD)
I'll post up what kind of PPD I get.
I ran the BOINC bench and got 4312 (whetstone) and 9050 (dhrystone) my E1200 use to get 3125 (whet) 6838 (dhry).
nice my 5kBE@3ghz gets 2892(whetstone) 5630 (dhrystone) i personally think i need a better CPU as those scores suck
good job everyone
Next stop, 2 mil.
Got my mom's e4500 running now. Just have to convince her to not turn it off all the time.
Even installed a better (quieter) cpu cooler on it.
So long since I've run this project I dunno what my stats are.
They are so crap I am in no rush to look
Keep up the good work folks
one of the things that makes our team what it is, is that we don't seek members with 24 i7s and fifteen servers to crunch. We appreciate even the smallest contribution as much as we appreciate the biggest one. Crunch on my friend !!!
I am actually in a team but I have plans to stop by here for a couple of weeks once I have some other work out of the way
(I may even bring some company with me for the ride )
Appreciate the kind words
Bring as much company as you'd like. We welcome you'll with open doors . I love your sig by the way. If it boots it crunches, you damn right!!!!
Just started a little yesterday and still going today with one of my i7's. How do I figure out my stats as I go along, and when do they update? Its it bad to do all the projects at once with a stock i7?
Welcome to the team!
i7s are WCG monsters due to the 8 threads (make sure you have hyperthreading enabled in the BIOS. Also, go to Advanced-Preferences (In the BOINC manager) and tell it to use 100% of the CPU time).
You can check your WCG stats on BOINCStats and Free-DC, but you will probably have to give it another day for the stats to update and show you. I would say go ahead and run all of the projects on your i7, I have my quad set to run all of the projects (except the Clean Energy project and the Influenza drug). The only reason to not do all projects is if there are some that you think are more important (for example, Help Conquer Cancer), if you deselect the some of the other projects your computer will get more HCC work units.
I found that running 8 threads " 100% doesnt not affect my normal usage. I barely notice its on.. however if I need to play a blu ray or play a game I have to suspend it down to 2-3 projects until the movie/game is over.
It really makes me feel as if having an i7 isnt overkill (well it is) but at least it's getting better use than 60fps locked in HL2 with no video card. lol
If that happens just reduce CPU usage till it's ok. You don't have to suspend projects
Yep, this is what I do when I game. I have to completely suspend F@H because it's the GPU client, but I just set WCG to no more than about 70 or 80% usage and everything works fine. I never completely suspend WCG because that would be a waste of 3 of my cores
Yeah same here. The main rig I just set it at 100% when I go to sleep. It stays like that till I get home the next afternoon then I drop it to 80% till bedtime when it goes back to 100%. I game at 80% just fine, even crysis
Ah, I only drop mine down below 100% when I'm gaming (which, now that I've started WCG is very rare, I can't afford to loose that CPU run time ). If I'm playing a less intensive game I don't even have to turn down WCG at all
just to give it a little break. My other two rigs stay at 100% 24/7 though
I got my 2nd Rig back online. The E1200 @ 3.2GHZ , Asus MII Formula and some PCI Vid Card I got from my Bro
Now I finally got 4 Cores Crunching @ 100%
Sweet, what sort of PPD are you getting? I wouldn't be surprised if you appeared on my threat list if I don't get the E4600 up

Excellent work everyone! 1.74 million is nothing to be ashamed of!
great job everyone, we seem to be have all of the sudden matained about 300,000 more per day
I just got my 7750 running at 3.1GHz. I dropped the fsb from 250 to 248 and raised the multi from 12 to 12.5. At 1.35v it's 15.5 hours Linpack stable. I was testing it earlier though, so I lost ~24 hours of runtime but gained 100MHz CPU speed (..and lost 4MHz mem speed... ddr992 now instead of 1000)
