Hoping this week I can get 2-3 more systems working, but they are older and won't get me close to Top 20. for record, looking at getting an iMac (C2D 2.66GHz) an Athlon x4 845, and a i5-2400 crunching by friday.

I just decided to stop by and see how I am doing since I started crunching with my 3900x. I am consistently rocking the top 10 which is awesome! I can't even crunch on all cores because WCG really heats up the cpu. This spring I plan on installing a watercooling setup to achieve even greater heights!

Use a power save windows profile with maxcpu usage set to 96 it will clock to 3.8 but you can lower it if needed , keeps mine happier than if i let it loose 62° c all cores used.

If my little memory serves correctly, you can always fine tune the amount WCG is doing via the options menu under Options and then Computing Preferences ....

I am going to get my power bill back to zero, next paycheck, @ the 14th. Then, over the next week, or so, I will start ramping up. It has been consistently in the 30-40 F degree range here and I have my heat turned down a bit, w/ 5 boxes running. I have 3 more T-3500's to crank up and I will be tuning my gaming p/c to crunch soon also.

I have my laptop and one of my little i3 machines that need some repairs, they will be joining up in the coming weeks also. Gotta see how this old farm can do in the face of all these new Ryzen owners!

I am still hoping to build 1 or 2 2700 cruncher's this winter, and spring. I hope I can score a decent ram set and/ or a newer GPU this Holiday season.

That is exactly what I did. I set it to use 100% cpu time of 75% of cpus. I did a few tests and found that limiting cpus kept temperature in check better and maintained a higher ppd. I tuned it to not go over 80c.

Frankly I am suprised this cpu is this hard to keep cool. I have comparatively excellent air cooling. It is like the heat transfer from the cpu to the cooler isn't enough. I have tried reapplying TIM a few times too.

I am using windows because this is my primary pc that I game on.

That is exactly what I did. I set it to use 100% cpu time of 75% of cpus. I did a few tests and found that limiting cpus kept temperature in check better and maintained a higher ppd. I tuned it to not go over 80c.

Frankly I am suprised this cpu is this hard to keep cool. I have comparatively excellent air cooling. It is like the heat transfer from the cpu to the cooler isn't enough. I have tried reapplying TIM a few times too.

I am using windows because this is my primary pc that I game on.
I have the same experience but got better ppd with more cores at lower clocks.
On the temperature front they are made to run like that flat out , it's a bit disconcerting but they are made to do so and downclock as required to not thermally impload, and while crunching it does heat a room if not tuned as you have.
I did get better temps with liquid metal tim but it is a very heat dence node at 7nm and there just is not enough package space to radiate heat enough without sub ambient cooling systems, Imho and experience.

I'd try it the other way around :)?? I'm looking forward to getting a few 2700/X's but will be a while yet... Hopefully they won't suck and they will be as good as my 1700X's are, these things are great, barely hitting 60C at the moment, mostly running about the 50C mark if I'm honest... Just with air cooling as well.

I'm still on Windows for my main PC but everything else runs Linux Mint, I do wonder if the tables turn and Zika dries up completely if that's the best option.....

The otherway around doesn't work as well. The cpu will sit there and spike to 95c when it uses compute time, and then stop for a second. I also found that limiting it to cores rather than cpu time gave me more PPD than the other way around.

As long as it works :D That's a hot CPU... But then 24 threads running along I'm not that surprised...
