Those 2600K's are running a standard install of Mint which I didn't even update. Standard install of BOINC. I DON'T have the immediate upload cfg, because I think the newer client uploads fast enough. I haven't done the tweaks that @james888 suggested because I'm just too lazy. They are, however, running 100% OET at this time and that is why their PPD is so high, IMHO. If there's anything that's helped with the PPD, it might be that I have the minimum work buffer set to 1 day. This might help when they get into those really high PPD OET's by being able to grab a bunch when they come through, but, there is the risk of running out of work with that setting.
Most of those tweaks are super easy and would take probably less than 30 minutes of your time to do them all. I would avoid apt-build stuff because it is the only one that consumes a lot of time and it does not have much benefit.

On my own crunchers all those tweaks did not really give me any really noticable ppd boost. What I did observe though was more consistent ppd, which would seem odd for a rig that runs 24/7 regardless with immediate upload.

Cool
I'd still like to see what an i7-3770T in a Zotac Zbox-ID90-Plus would do, or similar i7-xxxxT units.
I want to buy a 4790s, or whatever the 65w 4.4ghz 4790 version is and put it in place of my pentium. I think I have a lead on one for $250 but I just don't want to bite right now.

Upgraded another T5500 to dual X5650. Was surprised at the runtime at the point I shut it off--longest I think I've ever gotten!

Wow, that is pretty impressive. I think my longest is about 45 days or thereabouts, but 126 days :eek:

I don't remember, nor have proof but when I moved to my new place I think my 2500k was just above 150 hours. I set it an ignored it for over a semester so that sounds about right.

This means I set it up in early August, which sounds right about right. If I hadn't touched it for the CPUs it probably could have kept running untouched until early May. But oh well, new CPUs are worth the 30 minutes of downtime.

Also I managed to get the second dual 4667 V3 system moved offsite yesterday, so it'll keep going over the winter break. still will take a hit but not a huge one.

My max was about 9 weeks/ ~63 days. My biggest issue was the random power outages but now windows 10 update seems to reboot me even when I don't want to.

Also, that server was older than me. :eek:

I just put an ssd into my old 2008 laptop. Boot times went from 2 minutes to about 12 seconds. I have had ssd's for years now, but it still amazes me.

Well, my winter descent has begun. I turned off the 4x 6128HE system yesterday and it'll be off until early January. I left work, so my 4790 and the FX8350 that I had there are both off; the 4790 until May and the FX8 until early January probably. I'll be back in force, but it'll be a couple not-so-great weeks first.

They should really expand on the "Snooze" feature. Like an adjustable "Snooze for X minutes" or something.

Yeah I'd like an X minute snooze and a simple preference switch to change from one usage preference to another, it's annoying to go and modify the setting when I just want a free core or two for a while.

+1 Great idea! I would even go for a pop up reminder to restore to original settings

Finally made it to my remote rig and put it back to work... posting from it now :)

So I tried to push the the x3440 up to 4.0ghz last night and it was running fine for quite a while as I was monitoring it, but I woke up this morning to it frozen on a bsod :(

Not sure how many hours of science it ended up missing. Back down to the stable 3.8.

Shutting down the main rig night now. I'm off today and rearranging things, and the pc has to be moved a bit. This is the same pc that gives me trouble upon cold boots due to the water pump not always kicking in, presumably because of a pressure issue, but I've decreased the water in the res so I think it'll be fine. But i'll report back later on, hopefuylly with good news :)

Edit: had to shut down 2 rigs and disconnect the 3rd :( Hope to be back soon though

Edit 2: everything is back together and rigs are back up. The change is not drastic but we were able to rearrange things a bit to maximize space.

So little story :rolleyes:

Last Monday, right when I was getting home from work, a city electrical inspector was poking his head around outside and finally knocked on our door (we live in a townhouse with several other units). He asked if we have had any electrical issues like lights Flickering. I said no; we had been out of town for serial days just prior and neither the wife nor myself had been home all day that day. He said he was asking because the upstairs person had complained about that issue, and if i had the same, it would help him figure out what was wrong.

He went on his merry way after idle chitchat. That night, I thought I saw a little flicker in the lights, but I can't say for sure. However, ever since that night, I've noticed it happening quite a bit. It seems to happen more when it's raining, and it's been raining a lot lately, unusual for this time of year. It's happening now that even my 4 yr old has noticed it and brings it to my attention.

So the lights flicker at times, not sure why, and I hope that it doesn't pose a threat to my rigs. I'm guessing he's going to follow up with the other person that had issues, and if i see him again, I'll definitely bring it to his attention; I actually did ask for his card and got it, but I've no idea where I put it since :(


I guess I'm wondering if anyone else has ever experienced similar and if it's something I should be overly concerned about.
