18 cores/threads all in! (Plus 12 ARM cores spread across 3 MOTO G's, if those count lol)
Well said. Many members (like me), dust off other non-WCG rigs and fire them up for the challenge.
I've got two dedicated X58 / X5670 WCG rigs on 24/7 (when I'm not fucking with them lol)
Two non dedicated Z77 / 3570k and Z79 / 4790k rigs that will be used for crunching during the challenge.
... And a laptop that I will use on/off to stack up some more points.
Well technically it doesn't change...? You don't have to apply or do something else?
Correct- you don't have to do anything differently.
For The Win!
Just look at the results. TPU's WCG team has more than 70 active contributors. TPU's F@H team used to participate in challenges, and had more than 30 contributors, but there hasn't been any challenges participated in for a long time and the team is down to about a dozen contributors, which is really sad with the power of today's GPU's.
I got it now. It is for the sleepers. Mine dedicated for WCG is always running... so no changes.
Ready to Rock & Roll
Challenge is the time to spin ALL your machines up, not just the dedicated ones lol.
Count me in I think i have a ten core I can throw at it
44 threads for me.
Please do not enter me in for any prizes.
intel core i7-870 Ready
intel Core i7 3770 Ready
intel core i5 Ready
intel core i 5 In progress!!
Count me in the challenge! wish i could win that super Supermicro X9DAi and get my Farm bigger, also will crunch as normal, 24/7 with all hardware, i'm here just trying to get my other i5 ready!!
Congrats for the organization and hope we ill have a quite terrific time and also get 1st place!
Great job getting ready for the challenge Team!!!
The Bad News- Looks like the 2600k I had running on the Kreij account either has a dead cpu or motherboard. It keeps throwing me a code 55, which is a memory error, and all of the memory in it tested out fine in one of my other rigs
The Good News- I put together the FX-8150 with the spare parts I had on hand, plugged in the hard drive from the 2600k, and it's back crunching again. Gotta love Ubuntu, the install on the drive doesn't care what system I plug it into... it just goes right back to work!
Should be able to get a PII 960 and/or a 2500k going within a day or two for a few more ppd
I'm betting the motherboard. That is usually the case. Could be a chip but I'm thinking mobo.
Got to find @Norton an 1155 motherboard team!!!!!!!
No worries I have one... a nice one too (ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z).
I'll try to test the 2600k in it when I get a chance. If it works then I might see if @jboydgolfer wants his 2500k back
Oh wow, them are awesome ole 1155 z68 boards!!!
Would you guys stop it! PLEASE! I have 1155 and 1151 motherboards here and CL can solve all my problems, except where to get the money.
Count on me, I've been crunching non stop since October of last year and I still have 250,000 points left to reach my second million.
I do not care if I win a prize or not; but if I do, I have an US address where things can be sent.
I'm finishing up my last f@h wu and then the 2600k will be crunching 100%.
Also there's a slight chance that I may be able to add my brothers cpu for the challenge in maybe 2 days, but I can't say for sure just yet. I'm supposed to see him tomorrow so I should know by tomorrow night.
is it even worth using my g3258 or can you use gpu acceleration? i have access to several core 2 quad rigs would they work better?, if i can use gpu acceleration should i turn my oc off?
The WCG only utilizes cpu computation currently so nothing gpu related will be of assistance unfortunately. Iirc, the older core 2 cpus run fine but produce fairly lower PPD. Maybe wait for someone who has more experience with those CPUs to chime in. The g3258 can be oc'd, right? Should make a decent cruncher.
yeah its at 4.5ghz, i need to delid it tho coz, i have a 360mm rad and its at fricken 75c, might try and get some of my old dinosaur pcs running just to help the cause, wonder how long it will take to kill my grandads old pentium 4 rig
It's been a while since I have crunched and what a better reason to get back at it than a TPU WCG challenge. Quick question, i remember some members were very against crunching with a overclocked machine.... Will WCG throw an error if things are not stable or can i potentially upload faulty results?
Several of my machines run OCs, mild OCs but never had problems reporting faulty results either.
Though if you're overclocking and are not 100% sure that your system is stable then WCG will most likely reject results as being faulty.
Ok so basically my WUs wont validate? I will start it up once I am home and have a look then
