I'd like to save for a 1600x/2600x for a new build. The 3570k has served me well, but the upgrade itch is starting to scratch me lol.

Also, all 3 Rigs are crunching nicely and I should be at a 5k ppd average very soon (3.9k ppd atm according to boinc app) and getting back my beloved star on my WCG badge :)

I have no idea how I got to 65K yesterday. All but one of my systems were well above average. So far today, I'm in third place for the team, and that's not just FreeDC. WCG shows that I'm headed for a ~70K day. o_O Not complaining mind you. Not complaining at all.
BTW, I complained about the PPD for OET on my 2600K back on 3/30:

Here's what it's been doing since:

15,341 points yesterday!

Bad news is that there is a heatwave coming through here over the next few days and I will most likely be shutting down my higher wattage systems. Will see though, don't want to lose this high PPD opportunity.

Almost have this one complete, waiting on a drive and a molex connector so I can fix the water pump.. Once this is crunching I'll be able to move back onto my Thread Ripper build, as I've been waiting for another pump/res to arrive.

Looking forward to seeing how the 2700X does against the 1800X.
@4x4n , what cooler are you planning on using, since that seems to be so important for the "auto OC" of the 2000 series?

It does look like that or an air bubble.
Either way, that system looks really cool. Love that itx board!

Just re-read that there and see what you mean now. Dano, we got it figured out :laugh:

It's alive!!

This is all with optimized defaults in bios. My kill a watt is showing 175-180 watts, and temps are 71 or 61 depending on what program. I've read that AMD puts a 10 degree offset on the temp reading so no idea if that's good or not. Using a Corsair H100 right now, going to be a bit before I can get my loop going again.

Ryzen has XFR- as long as you're running higher than normal clocks in auto the chip has decided temps are fine.

My wife says look at the pretty lights lol.

I'll mess with it more tomorrow after work. From most reviews 4.2-4.3ghz on all cores at 1.375-1.425v seems about the limit.

So the heat started hitting here in WA, I have to take some threads off due to heat. However I have a thing coming thanks to a couple of forum members here (you know who you are :love:) that I'll be sticking WCG onto. Should be running soon and 100% completed later on.

I think it's a kink in the tube.. I think the tube looks flatter rather than being an air bubble...??

Is that a kink on the bottom tube coming off the rad? :eek:
That's just beautiful!
All this beautiful hardware is definitely not helping my wallet!! As Norton says, mines run away!!

Considering the extra wattage and clock speeds, I'm thinking that's pretty decent!! What did your 1800X manage before @4x4n ?? :)

Your really not helping me here @thebluebumblebee :toast: :(

Judging by the power that my SR-2 and R710 are using, I could have 4 Ryzen systems running for the same power, but have 4 times the output running.. It's massive!! I might have a few threads but the wattage that's being pulled is massive (about 600w between the two systems) compared to @blindfitter 's Ryzen 1700 at 150w.... I bet that's a higher output per watt used compared to the big Xeon's a few of the guys are using....
But thankfully when the solar works...

When this solar monitor works its great, but this is a nice day for when the solar works.. Kicks out pretty well too :)

So the heat started hitting here in WA, I have to take some threads off due to heat.
What's the heat like up your way? Wondering how it compares to us in the southeast.

Though it gets toasty here, we keep the AC cool and I usually get to keep rigs running. F@H was a little different where I could feel the heat come summer time.

Living in a trailer home makes the 75 outside seem like 90 if you don't have the proper amount of fans to make you hate everything. New rig will have 70w chips so taking the other desktops off and putting this new one on when everything is said and done will put out more points than before with less heat.

Ran across something new with my 4P Opteron rig...

Turns out the default 10GB I had set aside on the disk was not enough to hold all of the work cached for the 48 cores and about 10 wu's were waiting to download due to no space left. Opened the disk up to 12GB which seemed to take care of the problem.

If you have a rig with a lot of cores/threads and/or store a lot of work you may want to keep an eye out for this or just increase the disk space a bit as a precaution

I'm not sure if it is related but I just had to provision more disk space for my crunching VM after BOINCTasks warned me about low disk space. I have 16 threads and 3 days worth of work units stored on there so it sort of makes sense.

Thanks @Norton :) I've generally left it whatever the program defaults are rather than downloading too much work as sometimes but from what I see on the stats I can't see Boinc taking up a lot of space at all.. I'll keep an eye to it tho :)
