Right. I've got the 7.0.28 64 bit version on Windows 7. Do I really need the beta? I read it might send errors?
As I've tasks running, should I wait before trying to set up multiple gpus, or can I hit "No new tasks" and close Boinc manager and then do the necessary?
Well I'm not running it 24/7, not even close. Right now I have just over 700 points per avg calendar day. The GPU should help though.
Hello! If you are looking for 7.0.40 download use this link:
I believe it is for the 64-bit version.
After you install, you could try the auto-setup utility(by m&m) in the link HammerON just provided.
I don't have a GPU that supports crunching, so I may not be of much/further help.
Count me in please
I'm in too for this one.
I still havent managed to make my GPU (7970) work properly though. All projects have runned on CPU no matter what I do, and I even used the new v1.1 automatic cmd setup program from M&Ms.
Also, all "Help Conquer Cancer 7.05 (ati_hcc1)" got Computation error as soon as they start. Any comments on that?
Are you using the 7.0.44 Boinc manager?
*Note- don't worry that it's a Beta... it seems to work w/o issues
Need to head off to work atm- this thread (link below) should be helpful or PM a member that is running the same card with a similar setup to see if they can assist:
Thanks for joining up for this!
Count me in.
Ah, I just realize this.
Same with ALMOSTunseen, I will decline any hardware and high value prizes.
I don't mean to be rude but for me the reason is simple : my location. It's hard to do overseas shipping to my country and if it can be done the risk of DOA is very high. I want no trouble at all for our generous members that already donated their hard earned hardware, so please keep my name out from any hardware and high value prizes.
I wish everyone the best of luck !!
Absolutely! Just meet the requirements and you're in
Thanks for posting these threads HammerON!
The HD5850s will work. They aren't thelatest and greatest, but their output isn't negligible nonetheless (I still crunch on an Atom CPU )
That will absolutely be enough--you should be able to get 25k points in ~3 days with those
Actually, it is BOINC points that we count for this--I need to go clarify the OP
Thirty nine entrants and counting
2 5850's should do quite well, Hell I get 13K-17K out of a single OCed 5770!!! 5850 should get 14K-19K a piece!
Quick reminder- the qualifier for prizes is 25,000 BOINC points and to crunch for the duration of the challenge....reporting results for at least 50% of that time.
Thanks again to [Ion] for taking the lead on this Challenge.... I know from experience that it's a lot of work! ---
In BOINC Manager (7.0.40) under the Tasks tab, should the column "Status" show that both cpu and gpus are being used?
All I see is "Running".
I've manually added an "app_config" in the folder "projects" (BOINC Data/projects) with the following lines:
I also added the following line:
to the "cc_config" so it now looks like this:
Despite these steps, Catalyst Control Center is showing me 0% activity.
Make sure that you save the "app_config" files with .xml file extension.
For example here's my app_config.xml file looks like:
By the way, my WCG nick is ArcticFir3. Just informing, since my nick in this forum is ArticFir3. By the way, I'm crunching using 2500k and 7970. Will that be sufficient?
My app_config.xml file looks right. Just different value for gpu usage (have 0.5).
I just read in another thread (reread) that the directory is G:\1.5T Documents\BOINC Data\projects\www.worldcommunitygrid.org
So I've got it there for now.
Only thing that confuses me is how to enable it. Do I stop all the running tasks and exit BOINC? Or do I have to wait for all tasks to finish before the new settings take into effect?
Oh, to make the new settings take into effect you need to restart (just exit, no need to suspend/stop ongoing task and then open the client again) your BOINC manager after updating your app_config file.
I'm in. Also could someone tell me how to get my Radeon 7750 crunching?
one question, will the i7 and x79 mobo be separate prizes or maybe the grand prize? i mean with all the ppl participating, i doubt many of us could afford to buy the other piece of hardware if they were separate.
I set my 6950 for 2 WUs and it seems to take about a minute more. 1 WU completed in 3:20, 2 in 4:15, is this normal?
I'm going to let the 7750 runing 1 WU as I'm getting about 70C and the HTPC is in a cabinet so it gets poor airflow. It's completing a WU in about 6:30.
So, How do I join(Apart from just writing it as new post)? Is there a registration process / Some software I have run in! Please help here, as I REALLY WANT TO BE IN THIS ONE - And also, count me IN too.
Not only welcome to our WCG crunching team, but also welcome to TechPowerUp!!!
I want in!
