Everytime I see a 5870, i think of .....
I have my app_config set up so that 5 WUs can be going at the same time (4 GPU and 1 CPU). However, it doesn't seem to be the case with Help Conquer Cancer WUs for GPU and CPU...
Any ideas why?
I had 4 GPUs and 1 CPU working OK with the Clean Energy Project.
A two core instance did around 2k PPD and it was around $15/30 days runtime as far as I remember. They were running under Linux and did real good but you have to hold it up against - noise, heat, HW investment and electricity cost. I had 20 times 2 cores when it was free and ended up having one until I couldn't connect to it any longer. If i lived in a real hot country with real high electricity cost I would do it.
As I see it you have your 4 GPU running and the CPU WUs are waiting since the lone CPU core is working on CEP which only just started. Did you made the change to more GPU/less CPU just now? If yes then all is OK.
What's the concurrent limit set to?
I finally found my Hitman: Absolution code and will throw that in for a prize.
Where do I find that setting?
You're running only HCC WUs (GPU and CPU both) so check your appconfig file.
Try changing the X to 5.
I have 4.
For gpu 0.5 and cpu 0.75. The idea was to have a little cpu left over to run just a cpu WU.
I have a quad core (qx9770) which has only 4 threads.
I now have other types of WUs so no problem.
I will try 5 when I only have HCC WUs. Thanks for the idea.
After a long weekend my 6950's are back up but the 5770 has been holding down the fort on my end LOL
OK guys, I've compiled the current points of all entrants in my spreadsheet--you can see your progress here:
Soup's entry and Aquinus' entry have since been fixed
Warning to NHKS, 7mm, seby83, blibba, modded, sneddenraj, The Grapist, and Sorin Tanasa: all of you are in danger of not making the required points (25k BOINC, or 175k in my spreadsheet). You need to turn things up a bit, and I'd like a PM. Thanks!
Huh ... good we are living in a relatively cold country - with a relatively high electricity cost...
Does anyone know of a stats website that updates fairly quickly?
The WCG website often seems to take a day or more to register what I've done, and there's no way of knowing how much individual tasks are worth in the client.
I've recently turned 3 cores of my 3.6GHZ socket-1156 Xeon onto WCG, about how many BOINC should they be earning per hour?
I think WCG website updates in 12-13 hrs.
Head to Ion's WCG Essentials Thread for more information.
Thanks, that also answered my other question - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111026
The WCG website updates every twelve hours. The BOINC manager updates whenever you hit "Update" in the projects tab. Free-DC updates three times a day (~8AM EST, ~3PM, ~8PM). BOINCStats updates on a pattern that I haven't been able to figure out yet
I'd like to remind everyone to check out our game giveaway if you haven't already
How many days left to go?? Now both my GPU's are making noise, 1 I got back from RMA over the summer. I sent in a RMA request and willl send them both in for repair/replace.
I am going to keep them running until the challenge is over or they blow. After that I will be out of the game until I can get them back.
Sorry to hear you're having trouble I would suggest shutting down those cards if they may fail on you- best to preserve what you have and go for the long haul..... I have my 6870 giving me trouble atm but I should be able to get it back to 100% with a dose of fresh TIM (I've cut the clock back on it until I can take care of it)
Challenge ends next Friday (3/8)
I just came here to ask for some input on a purchase decision I have. The major reason why I'm considering it is because for crunching, my rig...
I will post this here as well as I posted it on your other thread.
I actually think that you would be better off running dual 7770's or a single 7850 or 7870 rather than the 6xxx series of cards.
I am running a single 6870 in one of my crunching rigs and it doesn't do worth a crap at crunching.
I would really like to trade it for a 7770 or just sell it and purchase a 7770. The 7770 will put out much better PPD's than the 6xxx series of cards.
230 to go to 50k!
We're now in the final stretch--three weeks done and a week to go!
Keep up the awesome work!
