    Fired up the second 8350 and only got 2 WUs :confused: It's using the same profile as my other 8350. :ohwell:

    Oh, and actual ETAs were normal, 14 hours or so. I guess the manager overshoot the first estimate.

    Got my second rig running CEP2 now, just did it tonight. Last minute I know :eek:

    I think sleep is something you do when you have no pcs to fix, no crunching errors to sort, no info to find, no games to play, no obligations to take care of, no family to care for, no school or work, etc.... It sounds nice to be able to sleep :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately for me, that's not me :laugh:

    ive had 12 cores running all night, finished many Wu's and no points??!

    edit: I found the WCG results status page, and wow this 4.875ghz 8350 is ripping through loads of WU's

    how do we know if they have errors etc?

    Takes time for validation. You can search for ones with errors.

    Click on result status in the left navigation area. There will be a few options at the top of that page. Cycle through the one that says results status. One of the options will be errors.

    This isn't looking good:

    Changed the CEP2 limit to 4. Let's see how that works.

    ive had one error on my other rig, but it did have network problems ''detached''

    however ive gained 10k points in 20 hours of running... is that any good?

    Not bad at all:
    http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=user&proj=bwcg&name=859098
    :toast:

    First lesson- 1 FreeDC point= 7 WCG points

    FYI- check/uncheck the option on your WCG account settings page to allow your rigs to be visible so you can track progress on them thru FreeDC ;)

    Regarding results: search through the results status page on your WCG account. Since you are a new cruncher many of your results may end up as "pending validation" or "pending verification" and won't be counted on your daily totals until they clear this step.... this is 100% normal.

    There's a difference between World Community Grid points and BOINC points. That difference, if I recall correctly, is there are 7 BOINC points to each WCG point. It should depend where you're looking.

    A great place to keep an eye on the team's movements is the team's FreeDC stats page. You can also find your own name (or others) and see statistics for each user, or even each user's host (if they have that enabled).

    As James said, it'll take a little while for your results to be verified. If I'm not mistaken, WCG will eventually start trusting you and will mark results valid as you turn them in (I suspect it does that if you're verifying a result for someone else).

    Keep an eye on your stats page though. If you enable hosts in your WCG account, you can uses FreeDC to track output by each host as well.

    To be a little more precise, 7 WCG points Equals 1 Boinc point. Sorry, I often feel the need to correct small errors of no consequence. :rolleyes:

    mORE ERROING *PANIC* *PANIC* Setting CEP2 to 3 WUs. Both FX8350s are running at stock settings, what could be wrong? :confused:

    Norton, how are yours behaving? :respect:

    Mine seem to be doing fine. I'm running All projects w/16 CEP2's available on one rig/8 CEP2's on the other and CEP2 occassionally runs on all 8 cores but mostly on 2-4 cores simultaneously...w/o errors. Are you on Win7 or Linux?

    Also, what are you using for ram? My 8350's run 8GB @1600.
