    Just for the record, ATM i'm running my 6850 (clocked at 900/1200) with 4 WU's at once, taking 23 minutes approx to complete a WU. Don't know if i'm asking too much out of it, but it's doing a pretty good job.

    No error's? My 6850 is at 97% load with 2 WU's. Takes about 11 mins each, so our production is about the same. Not a big AMD fan, but how do I break the 850mhz barrier with this card(Overdrive & Afterburner stop @ 850Mhz)?

    can't get more than 1 WU working on my 6950, keeps spitting errors if I try to run 2 or more. I see everyone is having success so I guess it's a W8 thing.

    Just in case someone can help me these are the details:
    HD6950 2GB stock
    Core i5-2320 3.0Ghz turbo to 3.5Ghz
    Boinc 7.0.44 beta <- W8 can only run 7.0.31beta or higher, there's no stable version compatible with W8

    I was just having "calculation errors" some weeks ago and thought it was my OC, though the games and all the other apps were running ok (OCCT GPU was not showing any error after 15 min test), retested it all and even @ stock settings i was still having BOINC "calculation errors" randomly within the GPU, but as far as i read in some forums, it was the drivers, i updated them to the 13.1 version and i didn't had any issue since then even reapplying the OC.

    The other thing, my AMD Overdrive is not stopping at 850, i can hit 1000 MHz on core and 1250 on memory, came OC'd from factory at 790/1000, has some "voltage tweak" included (it's advertised in the box) ... maybe because of that? I can reboot to Windows and make a screenshot if you want. 935/1235 was the max stable i reached with 1,157V (GPU-Z tells that as i'm not manually tweaking the voltage)

    Btw, running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 + BOINC 7.0.44 when GPU crunching

    I found the Afterburner Config file adjustment online, so my Afterburner clocks are wide open now. Thanks!

    Got her running 950/1200/1.2V @ 49C. Card runs super cool.

    Good day! BOINC only runs 1 WU through the GPU since I set it up.

    [​IMG]

    This is my app_config.xml file. I used the utility to create one.

    <app_config>
    <app>
    <name>hcc1</name>
    <max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
    <gpu_versions>
    <gpu_usage>0.250</gpu_usage>
    <cpu_usage>1.000</cpu_usage>
    </gpu_versions>
    </app>
    </app_config>

    How do I get it to run at least 4 WU through the GPU? The max GPU load I get running 1 WU is 27% so I'd like to utilize more of the GPU

    From your image i can see that you're running BOINC Manager 6.10 which i think it was still not compatible with multi-gpu work, if you update to 7.0.40 or above (7.0.44 is available) keeping that config file i think you should be fine and using the 100% of your GPU.

    where do I download the 7.0.40 version? I downloaded the Manager I'm using now from the WCG website 3 days ago. :)


    NVM... FOUND IT! :)

    Having an issue on an i7 860 + HD 5770 machine. CPU WUs start up no problem, but all the GPU WUs instantly fail saying "Computation error". I'd made no changes to any of the settings beyond what I set as my default profile.

    Help pls?

    I did see the "Down for maintenance message" entry, but why do I have a big list of WUs that all failed?
    Also, in the screenshot, I have yet to apply the "100% of CPU cores" setting, so only 6 threads are active. Eight are active now.

    Edit: Derp. Trying new drivers.

    Second edit: Latest drivers, getting this:

    Make sure the OpenCl driver is selected with the driver package installation- confirm installation with GPUZ

    Check this and post back ;)

    Wait.. Apparently there's a scheduled outage?

    I did the "Custom" install and made sure any sort of accelerated computing options were checked. Checked in GPU-z and OpenCL is checked. I tried resetting the project, so now I have no WUs. :(

    The outage should be done in about 2 or 3 hours (maybe sooner) so you will need to wait a bit to see if the problem is still there.

    What driver are you using? Note- I use 12.6, they are very stable for me but YMMV

    13.1. We'll see. I won't have direct physical access to this computer for a while after tonight, but I can give orders through the phone. At worst, 8 threads a crunchin' is nothing to scoff at.

    This machine was originally using the drivers pre-installed from HP. Thinking about it now, I'm not surprised it failed.

    EDIT: CRUNCHING ON GPU! Drivers were it.

    Finally finished with the cruncher rig assembly and installation, just sit back and watch, i wonder how much FX8320 + GTX670 (4WU GPU) and Phenom II X4 + 7870 (2WU GPU) will give me point.

    I'm going to buy new 550w PSU tomorrow for the 7870 and try 4 WU, because i plan to keep it crunching for a long time after the contest over.

    You should be able to get 8-10 gpu wu's out of a 7870... both of mine are running 10 atm ;)

    Ten?? I do ten with the HD7950 :eek:
    Once i get more CPU cores available, I guess I'll try a dozen on the Tahiti cards and eight on the HD7850 :wtf:

    FX-8 chips are pretty decent work horses for this sort of thing :D

    EDIT-

    Quick tip for any new crunchers.....

    If you enable "show hosts" in your WCG profile you can monitor the performance of your systems (each rig) through sites like FreeDC or BOINCStats ;)

    This setting from the WCG profile (last selection on the page):
    [​IMG]

    It's off by default but most of us turn it on to be able to watch our output with a little better detail.

    Is there a way to restrict what kind of work a device gets? My CPU cruncher is getting several HCC units and they take about 3 hours to complete. I'd rather do CPU-only units there.

    EDIT: NVM, I found it. Had to setup a custom profile.
