    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    A 1055t will spit out between 3k and 4k ppd at stock clocks. There will be days it will be below 3k and days it will go above 4k. My 1 1055t that is clocked at 3.2 puts out an average of 3.7k

    You or anbody else will newer see 90 % average when running GPU units. They need a little CPU help 50% of the time and 100% the other 50% of the time. If you have a weak CPU and a powerful GPU (dual core and a 7970) and run a lot of GPU units and manage to separate them (make sure that CPU and GPU work load is spread in the best possible way) you might go has high as 90% average CPU work. My 24 GPU units on 12 threads does average around 80%.

    If some one would look at my system specs and tell me what I need to run 2 cpu and 2 gpu. would be very happy. I tried the utility that was mentioned but it did not change anything. Did I do something wrong? Not much good in the way of programming on my end.:slap:

    OK. So 100% CPU is only possible if I got cpu tasks only.

    As GPUs do really good work, it's better to sacrifice some cpu for the benefit of a GPU.

    100% CPUs < 75% CPUs +1 GPU 97%

    How do you get 24 GPU units?

    CPU load will vary but will do so more due to gpu work running. Make sure that computing preferences are set to 100% cores and 100% load in the BOINC Manager:

    [​IMG]

    Also, you can shut off Cool & Quiet in the BIOS (that will help) and monitor cpu voltage/frequency with cpuz to ensure that processor stays at peak

    EDIT- for 24 gpu wu's you need to be running 2 or 3 Radeon 7950/7970's in your rig. They are the super duper extra premium awesome gpu crunchers!!! :toast:
    *7870's are OK too :eek: :roll:

    EDIT 2- @sujo- with the rig listed in your specs I would try to run All projects and a single gpu wu (no app_config) for a few days to make sure that the rig is stable and you are not throwing out errors... stability is as important as output. :)

    I Have been running 3 cpus and 1cpu/gpu for 4 months have thrown no errors.From what I see on GPUz temps at 93% sets at 58 c. stock cooler at 44%. If it can't handle more then no problem, will crank out with what I got.:toast::)

    Sounds like you're stable then :toast:

    You can try the following app_config for 2 cpu and 2 gpu (@0.5 gpu + 1.0 cpu each)

    <app_config>
    <app>
    <name>hcc1</name>
    <max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
    <gpu_versions>
    <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
    <cpu_usage>1</cpu_usage>
    </gpu_versions>
    </app>
    </app_config>

    You either use the manual method from our guide here or m&m's utility (using BOINC Manager 7.0.44)

    Output will likely be 50-75% more than your current output ;)

    As Norton wrote - two 7970s . A i7-2600K like our Manofthem http://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/host/detail/2231226 can do +200K PPD with such a pair and others with 12 threads can do 230-260K PPD.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I also can be of no help to you guys running multiple gpu units on one card. I am a renegade and buck the system. And as such I don't use the same way to run multiple units on my gpu's as everyone else does. I do not use the App config method because well I am just to lazy to redo my settings. I use the app_info way.
    Norton says thanks.

    Make sure nothing is overclocked, if that helps your OC was too unstable (crunching programs are more sensitive than other applications, so Prime95 on all cores for 24h must be reporting no errors when in order to run BOINC on a OC'ed system. For graphics OCs, memtestCL or the GPU test in OCCT can be used). An unstable cpu core can still affect GPU WUs, AFAIK.

    Well said. :toast:

    @Norton Thanks for the info. after I re installed the 7.0.44 version,the utility worked like a charm. Must of had a clunker the first time.:banghead:

    Looks like the production increase is about 70%. Originally was completing A wu every 11 min. now am completing 2 wu every 16 min. On another note gpuz now says load at 96% instead of 92% also the temp is stable at 58.5c. Again thanx for all your help. You Rock.:toast::rockout::respect::respect::respect:

    Is this open world wide? i will join the challenge anyway, if it is not world wide and somehow the god of crunch choose me as one of the winner then i will give it away again to another member.

    Yes, it is available to anyone. For members located outside the United States, I do request that you help cover shipping on any physical items. However, there are games and PayPal prizes that you can enjoy easily in Indonesia ;)

    I need help in one day i only got 1000 credits and by the sounds of it that is slow. I'm running i5 and gtx 670 and i know that Amd is better for this stuff. Am i not using my system fully?

    Have you set your BOINC preferences? http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2841422&postcount=281

    Are you running multiple GPU WUs?
    Are you reporting errors or invalid results?
