I'm IN!! 2 xeon x5670's, an i5 2400, 3 i3 2120's and the LappyTop with an i5 3317, Oh, and my phone, crunching overnights while plugged in.
Also, I have another computer on it's way. An i5 that I am going to upgrade to an i7 3770!

So, this year, I will feel better about contributing!! Last year's contest's I basically had the lappytop and the i5, for a while, I had to get the i5 comp re working after an OS issue, long story.

Anyway, Let's DO THIS!!

Don't count on much help with my Ryzen 3 2200G, but I do plan on getting my account all straightened out and at least giving a few cores to the cause.

https://www.seti-germany.de/wcg/stats_team_all.php?proj=wcg&lang=en

The headline will be "Testing Scripts" at the moment, because we do not want to confuse visitors, but the data will be to your challenge.

Hi!

I'm new to this crunching stuff, but I'll be happy to help with my good old Sandy. I started a few days ago thanks to this thread an I'll try to do as much as I can for the competition. :)

Also, I will probably build a Ryzen PC after Zen 2 comes out, so it will get much better. :D

Awesome! - I'm personally waiting out for threadripper 3 or perhaps a good value server board (Norton has given me excellent tips) - If you wait out for zen 2 it should have more cores than the 9900k and have excellent crunching power, especially with the high clocks. EDIT: I've also got my x299 board - If that 22 core takes a tip in value after amd crushes it I might be able to grab one in the used market in the £500 range down the line - I'd make a nice addition.

I'm kinda back to the team to give a little hand for both the warmup and the actual b-day challenge. Nothing much, though, just a pair of boxen, Ryzen 7 2700X + FX-8320. Might add another, low-end Ryzen for the b-day challenge, if I can assemble it in time. It's either 2200G or 2400G, I don't 'member the model right now.

Nice choice

Take a look at Ebay/Gumtree - I've seen £40 a320 boards going for ryzen in used but full working order - I could get a 1600 + board for £150~ (cex does cpus dirt cheap here) another zen is definitely good value - perhaps sell that FX rig of yours to raise more funds?

Another massive tip is engineering sample processors - I found a xeon gold 6138 20c40t ES chip for £295, dirt cheap for what it is.
