Nothing wrong with borrowing some family members' pcs for a little while; that's what I'm doing too.
so we breaking out the laptops also huh? Here is my little beast (roflmao, but every little bit helps)
You guy's bringing in laptops huh? Don't make me fire up my retro rigs. Can't use my laptop, it might spontaneously explode.
Happy Birthday TPU
hmmm this all seams interesting i have a coin mining rigs with lots of amd 7970 gpu but with low power cpu, can the crunching run on gpu only?
Not at this time, but you can Fold for the F@H team while we bring our CPU's over to the WCG team!
There are no Gpu wu's at this time. Cpu only. But you can if you want to help, Fold with those 7970's. The Folding team which we bow to and are very close with would love to have have you. If you want to crunch on your cpu's every little bit does help
Ninja buck beat me to it
Also Buck, I have a dedicated folding rig in the works. I should have it done in a couple weeks.
For the challenge prizes you can crunch OR fold or crunch AND fold as long as you're turning in work every day and are a member of at least one of the TPU Teams

My internet had been spotty all month, what happens if a connection issue results in a day(s) with no results?
Seems that your work will get uploaded when the connection gets re-established, and if you're low one day, it'll be made up the next day.
However, I'd suggest increasing your buffer to make sure you have enough work in case no internet connection for a day or 2.
Hey dub, you just need 5k of points during the challenge to qualify. If you have a day of no report you will be fine and you will upload the next day
Added links to some of our past Challenges to the OP
Haha, I was just glancing through the HCC challenge thread from way back when I joined up, and it brought back so many memories lol. Boy, I was really lost back then not much has changed
I love challenge times
Once you can show people the way, you aren't lost anymore.
I'm "in" for the 10th B-Day Challenge! I'm going to start the process of converting my rigs to WCG beginning today.
We welcome you sir, happy to have you aboard!
Thanks for the help!
41 Teams signed up so far!
We may be adding some more prizes- keep an eye on the prize post for details (post #2 of this thread)
We are closing in on 36 hours before the Challenge starts- time is now to join up and get your rigs crunching*
*takes a few days to get up to full speed
Unfortunately last night didn't go as I had planned, and I will have to wait til later today to get the other pc running very upset about this, but there's nothing that can be done. I hope everyone else had a better time getting ready!
Guys looks like my crunching might be postponed. Someone knocked a hose lose and killed my main rigs pump. So I have to get a new one now.
I managed to get my second FX-8320 running late yesterday. But for some reason, with the same clocks (3.6 GHz) that were perfectly fine on Linux, it isn't stable when running BOINC on Windows and hangs / BSODs / crashes once in a while. At first I tested with +100 MHz higher (3.7 GHz) than I had normally. It was rock solid and passed one and a half hours of linpack sizzling just fine, no errors, no freezes, no BSODs, no nothing. And then BSOD'ed ten minutes into running BOINC afterwards.
I dropped down those clocks back to 3.6 GHz hoping it will work, but as I already noted it ain't stable – my father reported that it hanged after ~ an hour of BOINC'ing. After that, it's been running for two hours fine. But that was 4 hours ago and I have no idea how it does now. I'm going to have to visit him and tweak it.
Man, I really don't want to bump by voltage up.
I don't like this. I don't like this one bit. Especially how linpack couldn't catch any failure after that long...
stinger608 had some pumps in his FS thread
I had an issue with a bad ram stick causing problems a while back. Did you try memtest? Also had a bad HDD give me problems. Not sure if these are similar to your issue- just saying that I've had problems in those areas.
You could try dropping ram back to 1333 to try to take the stress off of the chips IMC.
That ram is already at 1333 lol. HDD appears to be perfectly fine. Should try running memtest, though.
I guess I'll try entering a contest this time. Count me in for both of them!
