Not sure what you know.....
my CPU usage jumps to 80-100%, even though no crunching is occurring
The client runs benchmarks when it first starts, both single thread and multi thread. You can see this in the log. (tools - event log)
i cant get bonic or WCG programs to work. they install, and seem okay, but i am unable to connect
How long did you give it? Often, the client does not connect the first time and you will see deferred with a 2 minute delay. If you happened to time it just right, while WCG is doing its processing, it can take a while before you get the first work. Also, if you really have your system locked down with virus or firewall protection, you may have to grant permission for BOINC to work.
You can change how the system works. This is my i7-3770K and I'm able to use it while it's running at 100%, W7. sometimes I'll back it off a thread or a core but that's all that's needed.

Also, if you want more direct help, we can Teamviewer in to get you going. I won't volunteer anyone else, but I'd be more than happy to help. Just send a PM.

With a fresh install of Linux or Windows, it takes a few minutes when you get to the desktop to get it crunching..

It tends to down a single work unit, then after a little while, downloads a few more at a time.. If your in the UK, drop me a PM and like @thebluebumblebee, I'm more than happy to help if you need it :)

i gave it over 15 minutes to do its thing.

additionally, im unable to even download it on any android device i have:confused:
i give up, the 2 times i run it in a year isnt worth it for me, thanks for the help tho .

@thebluebumblebee
Yup im aware,

All:
something fishy is going on. The weird thing is ,when I look at my profile on world community grid, it actually shows active work units, so it looks like the units are starting which would justify the heavy CPU load, but the manager itself isn't reacting at all ,it just stays blank and shows "disconnected" the whole time .

I guess I'd be fine with it that way, but I can normally run it 100% on my CPU ,and still use the computer without ever knowing it's even running ,but as it is this way ,it totally freezes up my computer , and renders it unusable. I'll wait another few months and see if it works then

thank you very much to everybody who offered help

As I've my daughters diary to write, I'll be around a bit if you'd like to try :)

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

I'd download the top version 7.14.2 without the Virtual box (no clue what that is...) Install, run. It'll ask for your username and password, throw them in. In about 5 minutes, you should be crunching. I always put on advanced view rather than the simple view. It should just show up like this :)

So strange.. Reminds me of a job today I had to do, but I digress... :)

If you have 5 minutes to put up some screen shots, please do.. Would love to be able to get you up and running! :)

So I tried to find my max OC last night with this undervolt. 4GHz is plenty stable, but even 4.1 ain't. Linpack Xtreme crashes pretty quick. It seems okay if I bump the bclk a little though, 101x40.

Has anyone else had any issues with Free-DC again yesterday or today?? I've not been able to get any data for the last two days.. :( It was working I thought yesterday morning but when I got home to do the daily numbers, it seemed to be having issues??

Still no luck with Free-DC for me.. Will put up some results from BoincStats and see how they go...

Hope everyone's doing alright :)

So I (no @agent00skid) got my new dedicated chruncer/folder 2700x up and running under Linux (Ubuntu 18.04) with up to date SW. I noticed that here is quit a big discrepancy between CPU time and Elapsed time (1.54/1.90 is the last one). My only other Linux rig is a 2520M that from time to time does the same and I have two idears - CPU clock down or it waits to update SW. I still use the stock cooler but just picked up a Noctua 12. I tried to reduce from 15 to 14 but no difference (one is used by folding). @Norton you run Linux on Ryzen. Do you see that big difference? Others are of course most welcome to comment.

Did you go into Driver Manager and apply the AMD Microcode? What project is that occurring on? Ryzen does not like MIP.

Edit: About F@H, I adjust how many threads I give it by watching CPU usage in Psensor. I don't want to see it hit 100% or more. I'm also determined to only F@H on Intel platforms and let these Ryzen's run.

Zika's good as well. Look for Driver Manager. I'm using Mint, so it's a bit different. (it's under administration) Try typing driver manager in the search bar.

Did that but since my "version" is in Danish it come up blank. I will figure it out. I had a look at the CPU usage % and most threads jumps a lot.

Only thing in additional drivers were the Nvidia driver. I would expect Ubuntu to keep amd microcode up to date on it's own.

Grrr. I have Teamviewer on my Ryzen 1700 but I can't access it for some reason, otherwise I'd give you a SS. Might take me a few hours to get that.

The only thing there is correctly the Nvidia drivers. I found the AMD micro drivers on the web but was adviced against doing a manual install. I do have Teamviewer installed. There is some input lag but it works.

mstenholm is running Ubuntu 18.04. You seem to have one based on 16.04, which could explain some differences.
My machine here running 18.04 already have amd microcode installed by default.

Update: removed stock cooler and CPU in one go. Result - 11 bent pins. My hands are not steady enough to straighten them nor are my eyes so now I return it for repair and buy a new if it takes more then a couple of days. F..k.
2. update: it turns out that the shop is more dishonest than I'm. They would RMA it to AMD. I bought a new new nevertheless. I might like the performance and build one more with cheaper parts :)
The NH-U112 SE AM4 took 8 degree celsius of the stock cooler with significantly less noise and LEDs. Nice.
@thebluebumblebee you were right, folding is the culprit for the poor CPU utilization. I had trouble uploading a folding WU and during that time all were good in the WCG camp. Well I will stop folding on this rig during challenges. The CPU alone is a poor space heater.
