You noticed 300 posts later? You should get a prize just for that!
You're all set
I suppose you missed the game giveaway too? . Not too late, link in my sig
lol when does that end? i am hoping i get something good as i cant buy new games lol
Giveaway will be ending tomorrow night and the winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
finally got the sig thing right i forgot to do it through image url i was saving the image.
Not that hard since I just look at the subscribed thread notifications to read new posts of the regular threads and almost never look at the WCG subsection itself. And I only subscribed to this thread when the challenge was already started, if I am not mistaken.
Thanks! Well, I noticed when I read the second post on this thread. i.e. I "noticed" it with conjunction with noticing this one
Challenge Results Day 4- TPU #1... Still going strong!!!
Great job Team!!!
4 days left- keep it up!!!
Why do I have so much work in line?
Is this much work normal or do I need to change a setting?
Whoo!! or, "Oh non!"
You're fine. As long as they get done by the deadline and are not aborted, you are fine. The CPU tests that BOINC does determines your workload downloaded, according to the number of days you allowed. No worries.
Na that is that much Fullin. Hell, I probably have 10 times that much just to insure I don't run out of work.
Take a look at my stats is it me or is this rig slowing down?
Ups, and Downs. That is the way of the Cruncher. Just know that it is not about the numbers and ALL about creating a better tomorrow.
Ah, hell, We all want the numbers and do outragous things to get them! However, inside, we all do it for the Science.
It's a tough row to hoe. It takes a while to, either realize you've gone insane or, learn to accept what you and your comp(s) can do.
Nothing to worry about. Some days I'm down to like 4.5k and then the next it's at like 7k, and most of the time that's with my 2nd pc part time.
Only worry if you #s are drastically low for an extended time period, and then I'd be looking for WU's getting errored out.
See? Nothing to worry about, right? Keep Crunching buddy, you've got an awesome 8 core i7 goin'!! I can only drool in your general direction.
Id up the frequency to 4.8GHz but im afraid ima loose my work and Id hate to do a shut down!
I could go to 5.1ghz but hmmm me thinks 1.59v would cause mass global warming lol
Anyways a question, AMD piledriver 8350 4 module 8 threads. How do they crunch over intel I7's 4c/8T?
We know the amd can convert video at a speedy pace but what about crunching?
@ThE_MaD_ShOt or @Norton would know about that.
Back when FAAH, CEP, FAM et al were running in full, I was getting 8K on my 8350 and about 4.5K on my 3770. With MCM now in full swing and FAAH winding down I was getting 3.5K on the 8350 and 5.5K on the 3770 so the answer is, depends on the project.
Whomever hasn't already entered, you only have one more day to sign up for the WCG Challenge Game Giveaway (don't confuse with this thread's giveaway)

I'm having issues tonight! My hydro keeps going out! I hope my APC has enough juice to maintain my work load between outages.
This has been the 3rd time tonight the power has gone off.
And for you overclockers, get a dam APC for clean stable power!
Well I just may get shot overr this, but I did a 30 second shut down and keyed in my 4.8Ghz clock into play over the 4.6 setting.. 7 extra degrease C so well see what happens.
I haven't tested this 4.8 setting for total stability but im confident it's going to run.
PS the power just dropped out again but the APC took over
Sorry to spam but after this 4.8 over clock and temperature in the mid 60's I bet I crack 50k today.
Sometimes it's not worth it to up an OC 1-200mhz unless you know it's absolutely stable because it can yield errored results or instability issues.
Just be sure to keep en eye out of that sort of stuff and you'll be good.
Yeah, what manofthem said. BE very careful on ocing. It has to be 100% stable or you will start erroring out wu's. If you error out to many in a short time wcg will balck ball you for a short time which means all your results will have to be verified before you get credit. Not to be confused with validated. If they get thrown in the Verification pile it could take days to get credit for them.
Is it just me or has this challenge been flying by? I mean, we barely have 2.5 days left. Where has the time gone?
