    :( Sorry to hear that- did it restart ok?

    One of mine was doing that a few weeks ago but it has been fine since I put it back to stock clocks....

    The board I'm using throttles the 8350 if I overclock beyond 4.2Ghz making OC practically worthless so I left it at stock settings.


    It's working fine ATM

    These WU's seem to finish in around 6 hours, that were only netting 50-80 WCG points, are now twice as worthy! The two that just came up valid were both worth over a 100 WCG points.

    It has been explained, ad nauseum, to me before but, still not all that clear about the formula for WCG points (and no, this is not a cry for help in the form of long winded explanations or links to anything) and I am OK with that.

    What does seem quizzical, to me, is the amount of work and money that goes into these WU's and the computers that we build to run them. CEP2's seem to be on an island of itself with special needs. Yet we have an actual drop in points running them.

    It would seem more logical that running a special needs WU to completion would warrant a special bonus, to at least match the PPH of some of the 'easy' running WU's.

    I'm not really complaining here. I would do this without points, however there are points and they don't make sense, to me, how they are awarded currently.

    Alright, remember, PLEASE, don't spend anytime on trying to educate me on the points system. Rather, debate the point I made about special needs WU's. Thank you in advance!

    Just means you get to report extra work tomorrow. Gotta look at the glass half full, man! (Or if you're an engineer, the glass is twice as large as it needs to be.)

    arghhh, my second 8350 didn't post any points in the last update. I guess it locked up again. :banghead:


    EDIT: I'm down to a single 8350:
    :cry:

    On a sidenote: Delft University (Netherlands) won the World Solar Challenge in the Challenger Class, Tokai Univ. (Japan) became second and the third place went to Solar Team Twente (Netherlands). The rest of the field is still on its way (at least, those still in the race), The Cruiser and Adventure Classes are somewhere near Port Augusta, The Cruiser Class winners will be announced somewher in the weekend, because thare are jury-judged score modifiers in effect.

    Is it normal that I don't receive 8 units to work on in my PC? The thing is if I don't update manually, I only get 4 or 6 units to work on. I'm not at home during the weekdays that often and when I do have the time to check it's only running 6 units at max. Is there a way to change the settings so I get 8 units to work on everytime?

    Sorry for the noob question but how do I do that. The bottles of beer that I've stacked on my desk have seemed to have an effect on how I go about on the WCG website. :toast:

    Problems?

    Got errors since yesterday evening.

    Computer restarted and has BSOD on me a few times since.

    Thought at first it was a Firefox/Adobe Flash/Adobe Reader update problem - now not so sure.

    Reset the project but that doesn't seem to have helped. CEP2 WUs seem to hang after a few minutes... some even uploaded after 5 minutes.

    Next step might be to reinstall my BOINC manager I guess.

    Anyone else experience any problems?

    Update 1:

    Reinstalling did not do the trick. Random reboots...

    Shut down BOINC for now and computer seems stable even with all Adobe stuff updated and Firefox running 24.0.

    Guess gonna have to try to fix BOINC somehow.

    @AnnCore: first thing that comes to my mind is cpu over clock might be the culprit, as it was for me. Any chance you're OC'd? If so try backing it gown a little or other stock. Apparently these CEP2 wu's are pretty intense.

    Other than that, I'm not too sure. :eek:. The other guys will probably have some ideas.

    No overclocking with these CEP2. Been running my 8350 stock since about a month with no problems.

    Are you using 7.0.64? The Beta version has been causing problems recently, if you can believe some of the posts here. :rolleyes:

    7.0.64. No Betas.

    It's just weird. Been running CEP2s exclusively for like a month and all of a sudden I'm getting errors.

    I even tried using only a 50% CPU load (4 instead of 8) and I got errors and reboots.

    Going to try a clean reinstall, deleting the BOINC folder and data...

    I'm not positive, how can I be? However, to this un know it all, it smells of a computer issue and not a BOINC one. Methinks, PSU or motherboard or...complications with Windows updates?

    Good luck. I am pretty good with guessing wrong. ;)
