Not sure what Navi is gonna do, but I do know I'm still happy with my 1070. I'm more interested in what new CPUs we'll have by this time next year...

WCG and FAH VM’s above are all using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
On the same VMware ESXi 6.7 server, I also have VM’s for part-time use:
Windows 10 Insider Preview
Linux Mint 19.3 (potential Windows/Office replacement).

I thought this thread might need a bit of a update, so here's a few more bits of hardware I'm hoping to bring to the party soon enough :)

Idle wattage - Load wattage - Kw hours for 2 days and nearly 6.5 hours run time....

IMG_20200123_194524.jpg IMG_20200123_193733.jpg IMG_20200123_195314.jpg

So just under £3.30 to run it which is massive considering some of these Ryzen rigs are pulling maybe that for a week or so... I might be out on that bit but you know what I mean!! :)

Just thought I'd share this with you but the other fun thing is, is that I've another server just like this which I'm wanting to upgrade exactly the same... I do need some RAM for both of them so, I'll have to keep an eye out and save up some cash for now :)

I'm getting ready to start doing some poke'n around the interwebz and get that Supermicro H8QGi+-F G34 4P motherboard with 4 x Opteron 6166HE's up and running. Still need to work on a case/enclosure for the SWTX form factor motherboard, or at least get a case that the motherboard will fit inside of, then mod the case to fit the motherboard. Not sure how much production on WCG that Opteron 6166 HE's provide these days, but I still want to get this up and running and play around with it.

Hi everyone. Idk if you remember me but I used to crunch for TPU a while back, then I had a mental breakdown and basically almost Kms but now I'm here and I feel I can contribute again to the community, I think.

So I've never given up WCG, giving me a purpose in life, so to speak and recently I purchased a Ryzen 9 3950X for my main PC and some very good deals on other Ryzen parts, and I think things are going well.

Right now I have 38 cores, 3950X, 3700X, 2700 and 2600X doing 24/7, except for the 3950X which runs overnight 100% (32T) at 105W ppt, and 40% (12T) during the day when I'm using it for creativity or Gaming a bit.

I am not picking particular projects and I use Windows 10 on all of my machine because they also must run other apps occasionally and I'm scared of Linux.

My PPD is about 60,000 so far and I just got my 2yr badge for MIP and 5yr badge for MCM.

I wanted to know if you would want me back in the TPU team and community. I would love to put my processing power towards the team. And when I was here last, you made me feel very welcome and I really enjoyed talking with you.

Welcome back Ashley. I'm glad that you are feeling better.
With the current projects there are no big advantage in Linux.

Yes the older generation HW is struggling with PPD/W big time. You can do 25K @ 200 W with the new Ryzens. Have fun with your 4P

For the cheapest way of doing it, I tend to just buy stand offs and put the motherboard on those and then leave it be.. I don't tend to put my crunchers in cases... Well so far... I will even admit that I don't even attach the heatsinks properly, I just rest them on top of the CPU, paste, job done :) They don't move and I've had no issues yet, so ...... :)

I've joined the TechPowerUp team. :3

Thanks :love:

My Farm currently looks like this:

IMG_20200127_040145.jpg

This is my main system with 3950X. It has 32GB of 3600 MHz C16-16-16 RAM. I am going to let it crunch non stop for a few days, since I was rendering lots of videos lately and playing Metro Exodus which I like to give quite a lot of threads to. So now it is time for SCIENCE!

IMG_20200127_040133.jpg

Forgive the dust (>_<) on the left is my Ryzen 7 2700 system, with 16GB 2400 Mhz 14-16-16 RAM. On the right is the Ryzen 5 2600X system with 16GB of 2933 MHz 16-18-18 RAM. The Ryzen 5 2600X is running in "cTDP" Down mode, set to 65W. The clock speed is about 3.3-3.4 GHz on all 6 cores at 100% load in WCG. The 2700 is running stock, at 70W PPT, with clock speeds only slighty lower at 3.2 GHz ish.

IMG_20200127_040218.jpg

Last but definitely not least of my machines, I have my downstairs living room PC, which pulls double duty as a gaming system with Xbox 360 controller for sofa gaming. ^-^. This machine has a Ryzen 7 3700X and 16 GB of 3200 MHz 16-18-18 memory. The 3700X is also running with a tweaked PPT, set to 65W in Ryzen master. The clock speeds are around 3.6-3.7 GHz on all 8 cores at 100% load in WCG.

I have plans to get another full time rig, as I wish to take advantage of sales on 2nd gen Ryzen parts like the 2700 which is really insanely good price now. In fact, it is so well priced that if you consider cost of investment relative to cost of running, it is cheaper to buy and run 2700 for 2-3 years than a 3700X. Because I am saving £150+ on the initial investment. Perf/watt is lower of course, but even 2nd gen Ryzen is pretty efficient at <65W.

One more PC, which I am now going to break into WCG, is my mum's slim mATX tower upstairs. This has a Ryzen 5 3400G, but with only 8GB single-channel 3200 MHz memory, at 14-14-14.

All of my PCs use about ~650W combined. This is actually slightly less than my 2x1700+2700X+2700+2600X+(some other parts) setup prior. Zen2 efficiency and the cTDP down on the 2600X are helping in PPD/W here. By the way: this also includes, speakers, monitors, router and such. According to the WCG website, I have broken 60K PPD before I have started up the 3400G system. With that online, my Farm will have 42 cores and 84 threads. 24 of those cores are Zen2 architecture @ 3.6-3.7 GHz, and 18 of them are Zen+ architecture, with 14 of those running at 3.3 GHz (ish) and the other four at 3.8 GHz.

I have a Ryzen 3 1200 lying around here somewhere. I am in the process of moving my setup into the attic room (mother's wishes :))))) and once I have done that, I will add those 4 Zen1 cores to the mix.

As I said earlier, I have plans for at least one more full-time crunching machine, which will most likely have a Ryzen 7 2700 in it. Or perhaps the 2700X, since deals are good on those and it's very nice to be able to use PBO to configure the PPT on the fly.

For example, my 3950X is configured @ 105W PPT (contrary to some belief, the 105W "TDP" isn't the power use, but that's another story. 105W "TDP" = 146W PPT (Socket Power)). I switch between 95 and 105W depending on workload. I will note that the processor gets hotter in bursty workloads (gaming + 40% crunch) because the cores enter higher power states and use mroe voltage. I see around 4 GHz on all 16 cores in these workloads @ 105W, and 3.9 @ 95. In full WCG, I see 3.8 GHz on all 16 cores at 105W PPT absolute socket power, and 3.65 at 95W. I do this because I am trying to restrict the thermal load on my motherboard for full-time WCG, and my heatsink probably won't be able to cope with 16 cores at 4 GHz+ (stock 146 W PPT).

Zen2 is such a huge boon for efficient computing. I am so excited for the Zen3 parts, mainly so Zen2 parts can be had for (hopefully) similar deals like Zen+ is today. Human progress I think. :)

Sorry for the long post >-<"

What's your user name in WCG @Sashleycat ?? :) I'll make sure I keep an eye out for you in the top 5 ;) :D
Close - SashleyCatty
Yep, it's SashleyCatty


So it is 60,900 PPD now on the website. I took one of my rigs down for 10 minutes (!) for "maintenance" but was actually installing a new fan and tweaking RPMs to better cool the components. Anyway honestly to me what matters is that the SCIENCE! gets done, you may not make a neat gun, but everyone's still alive anyway. :D

My Goal in life is now to get myself a Threadripper 3990X system for WCG 24/7. What a monster.

But first, I am going to buy UPS for each of my machines. I am looking at some APC units that come with USB enabled software that can issue a shutdown command on mains power loss. This would save a hard shutdown & maybe corrupt some work.

I know of corrupted tasks too well, recently, I had to get rid of my RX 5700 (Navi) because of the driver instability was costing me hours of work a week. Since Installing the GeForce RTX 2070; I haven't crashed once. I also get RT and apparently Turing is quite good for Folding. I have a GTX 1660 SUPER downstairs, also, which I might set up for that. And besides, Navi is bugged heavily on Compute anyway, SETI at Home is getting invalid work from these cards last I heard.

Sorry, sometimes I type too much >-<"

A 3990X would be a monster but you would have to dial it down or go big water. A 2070 would do up to 1.9 M minus upload (200 W), even on Windows. It could also go as low as 1.2 M.

I'd dial it down, like l do my 3950X. With each of the 64 cores running at 3.2 GHz or something like that. Each core would use around 3-4 watts. With the even distribution of heat over 8 chiplets, a large air cooler should handle it. 128 concurrent tasks.... Jeese

I made another account called "Sashleycat" a while back, but I don't use it. I use "SashleyCatty" for my current stuff, and I've joined TPU with that account. Sorry about that :/

Completed the move to the attic room, and set up the Ryzen 3 1200 for 24/7 also. Scraped together from parts :D

IMG_20200129_232329.jpg


It's not "pretty" but that's four more pretty decent Zen cores that would otherwise be doing nothing. :toast:

Please excuse the Molex->PCIE power adapters. It made me cringe on the R9 290X, but it was the only way I was going to get the 290X to boot on this powersupply. It won't be doing anything other than providing display outputs to the system, though, so it should be fine. Even though a "decent" molex can handle a good 60W~ (two here, so that's almost the 150W spec of the 8pin its hooked up to), I have strong doubt on the build-quality (and/or connection quality) of a lot of these things. Not to self: Don't Furmark the 290X. o_O

So now It's:

Ryzen 9 3950X
Ryzen 7 3700X
Ryzen 7 2700
Ryzen 5 2600X
Ryzen 5 3400G
Ryzen 3 1200

All for SCIENCE! :3

Awesome farm there Ashley, just do yourself a favour and replace the 290 with something very low power and ignore the splitters just in case you leave it on 24/7.. The last thing you'd want is an accident with it.. Besides, I'm not sure you'd need a 290 to display a screen :D :D But I like your thinking!!

Fair point. Didn't actually fully consider the fire risk possibility & idle power use. The 290X is the only GPU I have right now, but I'll grab a GT 710 on Amazon for about 30 quid.

Anything cheap that displays a picture is more than enough :) I'd just turn it off at night and just use during the day when you are around just in case personally... I wouldn't want anything to happen to it regardless :) I'd consider something with a fan as passive are ok, but I always end up putting a fan in front of it so seems a little pointless to me lol :)

I was meaning to ask Ashley, what cooler do you use for your 3950X? :)
