Congrats to @OneMoar and also to @Norton for his effort on this team.
Congrats to @OneMoar!
looking forward to that awesome case O_O are fans included or do I need to order some ..
You will get a complete and ready to run PC.... add a mouse, keyboard, monitor and you're ready to roll
@_@ that I didn't know I was expecting to get box O parts and do the :fun: bit my self lol awesome...
got me thinking maby ill raffle off my old box to a cruncher that need another rig ..
The case is on the way to @Norton .
lets not let a awesome thread like this sink to the bottom
It's been a while since I've been thinking about the issue of the fight against cancer, more precisely about what we do by the scientific community. It occurred to me that if, and I say if, it were possible to write the code to reduce the duration of processing for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, it would be possible to call the crunching of benching. It's not easy for me to expose an idea knowing that the probability of falling into the ridiculous is great so I'm just now getting to expose it, because, imagine instead of having the Cinebench run (for example) ( not undoing the Cinebench because for me is the reference) it would be possible to run a fraction of a thread, thus in addition to testing the cpu get real results to help find results to combat diseases that are our real enemy.
With this measure (hypothetically theoretical) it would be possible to extend the crunching/benching to any Internet user.
@ST.o.CH hmm dunno if im right but are you meaning to use a crunching as a benchmark tool, so instead of running benchmarks that really only show how fast a machine completed it and the meaning of the data crunchin in the benchmark is meaningless, to somehow have benchmarks that are benching data, but the data it computes has a use ?? Im I getting you right there, cause thats a great idea
Crunching as a benchmarking tool has its benefits- however, there is an issue with it when dealing with an overclock that's unstable... the work done will error out and will need to be picked up by someone else's machine. That said, a stable running rig will output X number of results/points per day (points are related to GFlops) and comparisons can be made between other rigs (see below)
As a long term stability test there is a great benefit of useful work done rather just heat/wasted cpu cycles. Long term means greater than 3-7 days as mosts/all rigs need to run for a while to establish themselves as reliable for the researchers criteria. Once reliability conditions are met, comparisons can be made between rigs.
Hope that made some sense... I'm a little tired atm
I plan on doing a bit of modding to the new rig gonna make some "fk cancer" templates and spray-bomb the Fk cancer ribbon on it
I have a uncle thats been folding since like 2010 ill see about getting him to join the tpu remebers kreji group
Just wanted to collect up some of the pics of the PC's we've given away in Kreij's memory. There are pics of them spread throughout this thread but as we get ready to finish up PC #4 I thought that it would be cool to share them in a "family" photo
That's right! Due to the generous donations from TPU forum members we've managed to put together and giveaway 4 PC's in Kreij's memory!!!
*note- PC #4 is under construction and is due to be completed and delivered to the winner early next month...
PC #1 - donated to @BUCK NASTY
PC #2- donated to @sneekypeet *
* sneeky updated many pieces on the PC (case, cooling, and more...)
PC #3- donated to @ST.o.CH
* ST.o.CH will be building a custom case for the components received
PC #4- donated to @OneMoar (under construction- more details/pics to follow)
* ST.o.CH supplied the custom case for this build
A special thanks to everyone at TPU that helped make this project possible!!!
Looks awesome.. thanks so much all those involved in making this happen.... We can't bring back Special K, but hot damn, I think he'd be proud of us....
Received the case for PC #4 today from @ST.o.CH
The build for @OneMoar is one step closer to completion
That´s good news @Norton.
Then let me know your point of view about the case, the good and the bad sides.
That will help me a lot in further builds.
One of the reasons I approached Norton with this idea, was because of another thread I saw a few years back. I believe TPU lost another member a few years ago, I don't recall his name as I wasn't a member back then, but the community banded together to build a PC and donate it to a family in need (there's still a youtube clip out there somewhere).
While I think Special K would be proud, I'd ask everyone to think about the other members we lost a short while ago too.
I believe @RCoon your referring to Stanhemi if my recollection is correct.
We also did some fund raising for loonym 's family after he passed away and there were quite a few other special events where the community came together to help someone else.
Will post some links when I get a chance.... all show the great spirit of this forum!
Damn son, some of those threads really get the grit in your eye
Yep, that's right, he was another great member here!!!
attempting to fix my subscription to this thread
ignore this post ...
I got home tonight and wasn't completely exhausted from work so I took out the case that @ST.o.CH made for the build. There is only one word that describes this case when you actually have it in front of you:
ST.o.CH this case is truly a work of art!
*note- If anyone still wants to help and donate towards finishing the build drop me a PM and let me know....
Thanks @Norton for the feedback, a little work to greater a noble cause that is Fighting Cancer.
