So things did not go smoothly - I guess there is an issue with the drive. New install took FOREVER.

Swapped drives out, everything appears to be working now. Did have to pull the drive from the FX rig for the time being, looks like I'll be looking for a replacement.
What type of drive is required for replacement?

Thinking seriously about going with a 2700X when they come out.

I'm taking a little break from crunching for now. I'll still be going strong with my main rig, but I've shut down my Xeons. Probably going to be selling off some stuff and I likely have something to donate next time we have a challenge.
I understand that completely. Til recently I was in the same boat, crunching on merely a 2600k. Tides change and we are able to do more or less... No worries, we defintely appreciate everything!

Cool, I can dig it. Would be good to get going on this 1600x that is waiting patiently for me to get the hang of Ryzen, and then maybe switch it up down the line. Maybe @4x4n can switch it up around the same time. ;)

So things did not go smoothly - I guess there is an issue with the drive. New install took FOREVER.

Sorry to hear that the drive is bad but glad that it's going now. I have no drive to offer either, or I would. I myself am going to be looking for a drive in the near future when I finish my own rearranging of pc hardware.

Just a regular ol' sata hdd, nothing fancy.
If capacity is of no concern, i may have a smaller sata HDD. Its older, but iirc working. I wanna say its one of those 80gb drives dell liked to put in their older business class pc's, but it might be larger.

Thanks for the offer but @Norton has already PMd me and has a spare drive that he is going to be sending over. He's the man :rockout:

Something to think about @stevorob in the future, is just download good ole Crystaldiskinfo and it will usually give you an indication of issues with a hard drive:

https://crystalmark.info/en/download/#CrystalDiskInfo

Just download the standard edition as the others have a bunch of other "fluff" that goes along with them.

I use it faithfully on all my drives just to see if anything is going "bad." Works very well.

WCG has been giving me trouble again, dont know what it is, keeps freezing, and wont allow a log in. I switched to the Boinc program, and still having issues....Im content right now, since im customizing my new PC, but i hope whatever it is i figure it out sooner or later.

WCG and F@H are know for finding faults in systems that operate just fine for any "normal" usage.

It was weird because for years I've never had a problem running WCG. Then I started getting issues with freezing ,and not being able to get logged in ,after mysteriously being logged out. So I switched to the BOINC ver, and it worked for a week or so, then freezes again. I don't understand it ,but I'm too busy with work/life & multiple computers at the moment , ive got a couple systems for the kids that need to be configured so its not my focus, but its like an itch on your back that you cant reach. Its in the back of my mind making me wonder wtf?:rolleyes:. I'll get to it eventually , it's just odd because it's spanned two separate systems ,with totally different CPUs and chipsets .

It's happened where machines crunching stable for years start to give errors...it's happened twice to me in different rigs, though different errors.

When you get back to it, I'd say uninstall BOINC and all data under Program Data folder and clean out anything left over, usually by running CCleaner (never given me an issue before), then get a fresh install going again. If CPU is overclocked, drop it 100mhz (this has helped me before).

It is very weird how some errors and issues will not show up for a while, and then pop up out of nowhere. Hope you get it sorted!

This makes me think it's something that you're doing. An antivirus program? Firewall? Some program you're installing that's getting in the way.

There is some stuff drafted up but am thinking it may be easier to setup a small group to work on it- any interest?

Great idea. New guides with new, more current links and whatnot. Not sure of the older guides but a section on exclusions would be ideal, ie setting up exclusions to pause boinc when you start up a game or along those lines.

Would make an FAQ section a good idea also!

yeah, it freezes up, and then i get the red "not connected" or similar message at the bottom. i dont know WTF its doing

This makes me think it's something that you're doing. An antivirus program? Firewall? Some program you're installing that's getting in the way.
i would think this too, but it will work fine all day, then do this while im watching a youtube video, or doing nothing. i guess my MBAM could be doing something, but i cant see why it would suddenyl start out of nowhere...ill figure it out eventually

Something to think about @stevorob in the future, is just download good ole Crystaldiskinfo and it will usually give you an indication of issues with a hard drive:

https://crystalmark.info/en/download/#CrystalDiskInfo

Just download the standard edition as the others have a bunch of other "fluff" that goes along with them.

I use it faithfully on all my drives just to see if anything is going "bad." Works very well.
yep, it will give you a heads up if a drive is going bad. Great app!
Ran it on my drives and one of my older hdds reported "caution" with a bad sector, I think. Trying to go through and backup everything I can off the drive, then see if I can do anything to help it out. But as it's an older drive, I was planning on replacing it soon anyway.

Would make an FAQ section a good idea also!
Yup, that would be good. It ought to be as easy and simple as possible so we can direct new members to it when Challenge time comes around. ;)

i guess my MBAM could be doing something, but i cant see why it would suddenyl start out of nowhere...ill figure it out eventually
Maybe MBAM is thinking it's a crypto-virus or something. Might see if there's an exception list?

Yep, ran crystaldiskinfo on it. Reported a 'caution' with the only warning showing as pending sector count. Not technically a bad sector, so I didn't think anything of it, but I guess that it really was on it's way out. It was an old drive too, and got alot of use.

So, after tomorrow I'll be shutting all the systems down for around a week.

I'm have to go to Arizona and don't want to take a chance of anything happening while I'm gone.

Just didn't want anyone to freak out due to my numbers dropping to 0 and not posting. :p
