    Team,

    We have traffic from the rear and it looks like a biggie. In approx. 21 days, this team would roll over us.

    [​IMG]

    UKSL is single handedly crunching. Its per day production worries me.:shadedshu

    [​IMG]

    We cant be rolled over just like that. That too by a one man army!!:mad:

    We have to step up a notch...actually more than that. We have been doing great these last couple of days with numbers averaging 1.1 to 1.3 Mill per day.:rockout: But that aint enough.

    Folders, We would appreciate if you could spare a couple of CPU cores for WCG..now that we have 170 plus days for HWC to even think of overtaking us in F@H.

    Crunchers, I understand that many of our mates in US are facing unbearable heat. If you could lower the clocks and crunch at 100% for a couple of days, which by the way is most efficient way of crunching, we can put up a fight!!

    New members, please post any doubts or questions that u have. We will make sure we will get it solved at the earliest.

    Regards,
    Shiv

    Our points would be movin' on up if everyone switched from like 70% to 100%.

    Everyone, please switch to 100% usage. It won't mess with your performance more than it already does. Due to the way WCG works, it spikes to 100% and stays there for a while depenind on what percentage you set in the cpu time field. It doesn't stay at a constant level. Switch to 100% and lower clocks/voltages a bit of you have to! The time... is now!

    I added my p3 750. It estimate 18 hours to do a human proteome folding work unit. At least it's not taking 5 days like the single core f@h client :shadedshu: lol

    at some point im hopeing to trade my e2140 for a Q8200, intend on running that at 3.7ghz and that should get a whole lot more work done, no ETA yet tho

    Yeah man... I've been fighting the urge to go Intel with a mobo/cpu/ram combo, leaving my current setup to the backup rig... that would bring a lot of grunt but it would be reaching deep into a shallow wallet.

    Best bang for the buck would be an i7. 8 threads would beat out any rival AMD procy when it comes to crunching.

    Cant afford an i7 rite now. But will build in the coming months.

    Have an empty case at my friend's place. Thts been tempting me to build.

    Guys who r in the process of building an i7..This is the time.

    I've been following this team for quite some time. It seems to come and go. It will get some crazy points for a couple of weeks, then they disappear for a month. Not sure what that's all about.

    dont try to understand it, it will drive you insane :D

    the best way to fight this, is to add rigs... so you only see the numbers raising ;-)

    once I get my new stuff from Paul, I'll be at 100% while I'm away from home, and 80% when I'm using it, it is my daily rig you know. I'm switching my E7200 from 80% to 100% now.

    Not a one man team. It's a computer lab full of crunchers. Probably a class project for the computer science program.

    Once I go back to school I'm going to talk to the dept head about turning them into crunchers. The CEE department has a room with about 30-40 desktop PC's and they all have E8400's. If I could harness that power! o0o0o
