    I've cracked 9,000.

    Got 18 days to make 41,000 points. I'm averaging 3,300 (if left on all day) which means i'll be done in 12 days. Might be able to start taking it easy now :)

    Thanks for the help Don :)

    Is there some tweak or something to max crunching or help raise it? I also have a x4 but its only a 9600be 2.3GHz. I do have 4 tasks running but looks to me kinda slow. I am new to this so I'm not sure if its running at normal speed due to cpu or if I can get more out of it. Any ideas? I'm still at 13k+ since yesterday so I think that is kinda slow.

    thats because your cpu speed is slow

    boinc runs better the higher the clocks are

    Have you overclocked your 9600 at all? That will help, also what percentage are you crunching at? Not sure if it would make a difference but there is a config file that procceses the finished work faster.

    It's not oc'ed. The cpu and mobo don't work well w/ each other. I could try in a bit. I just updated my bios so it might. Where does it show percentage of crunch? I'm looking at task (boinc manag) and see 4 task running. I have 1 ready to report that's been sitting there for a lil while now. Where's the option to turn on "show cpu"? I think I seen it before but can't remember where.

    In the BOINC manager you go to "projects" and press "update" and your WU will be on it's way.

    Add the four wgc_xxxx processes and you have your CPU usage % for crunching.

    Just make sure your usage is set to 100%

    Keep an eye on temps though, your CPU usage is not at max so temps will raise and stress on it as well. If everything is in good shape, you will have no issues.

    That'll make a big difference ;)

    I didn't notice this at first when I joined last year, so my production the first days wasn't nearly as nice as it should have been

    seems like the Q9550 have a little problem, getting some random BSOD's so the numbers might be a little down a day or 2

    [​IMG]

    BowHunt3r, Black Panther, Fitseries3, Radical Edward and t77snapshot Have all qualified for the prize draw :rockout:

    Exeodus, TechPowerDown and garyinhere are all one stone's throw away from joining them :toast:

    Soylent Joe, mdbrotha03, MoonPig and Moggy are showing they have the horsepower to get there; keep it up guys :toast:

    The remaining contestants are struggling to reach the qualifying score but they are bringing home some invaluable points, soldiering on for the team. Proud to have you here A Cheese Danish, r1t4l1n, burtram, parelem, popswala and blu3flannel :toast:

    I can't update this thread due to so many other things I got going on atm, so thanks for your patience for weekly updates.

    Anyone know what's going on with the three guys that have their name in red?
