aka Kai;)

Let's hope he's doing a reconfigure and will come back with a monster setup again :pimp:
I did wonder what happened as over time he has had gone from 700k a day down to about 130k+ ish.. I was/am somewhat concerned :(

Well, one of my T3500's was spooling the 2 150mm fans to 11!!

I turned it off this morning, and went to work.

Got home, went through my mail, and a few other side things and then, took it apart.

The TIM was nearly welded to the copper heat sink. I used alcohol and cotton swabs to break it off in chunks!

I ordered up some Kryonaut, and will be re-pasting the Farm, over the next few weeks. Also, I have a fan dieing on one of my i3 Ultra Slims, that will also be repaired, when I take it apart for paste.

Speaking of the i3's, I switched OS, from Mint to Kubuntu, after I found it had been frozen. Hard Drive light solid, no mouse response, sloow response and WCG manager was not counting down progress times. I checked, WCG, and it had been crunching and turning in jobs. I shut it down. I will be taking a closer look at it, soon.

I need to go get a 12 plug, actually 2, Surge protected power bar. I am thinking about going to MidWest Lighting, to get them. They have some in/outdoor units that can take a direct lightning hit!! I like that kind of protection, for my investments...My Farm, TV, Playstations, Stereo, Power Antenna and my VCR (LOL, yes I have a VCR!).

Now that I think about it, My APC has 11 plugs and that can cover my Entertainment corner. But I need the new 12 because My farm is now 12 plugs!

The reason for that is...T3500-4!! ( yet another reason that i3 is side lined)

So, in a few days, after it spools up, I should be landing in a little higher on the TOP 10 list, and be less likely to be bumped off!!

Well that's one way to see if you can beat me to 10m ;) :laugh: Glad to see your farm is growing along :) It's a bit like benchmarking, once you start you have to keep going to beat that score.. It's definitely addictive :) I hope that poor electric bill isn't going too high :) I have definitely seen a bit of an increase in mine running and that's only the 2 slightly newer models and the laptop..

I have compiled a rather long list (yes got to much spare time) with AMD 6 an 8 cores that generates crazy point. All is with unknown owners but at least today it dripping at me:
Odd oet points4.JPG

A 40% slower CPU and that one thread could have been awarded 11.000 PPD. Sure is strange.

I notice this a lot with mine and notice a bit of a difference in all of the points I get awarded. Some are higher, some are lower.. I can't change it unless I stop doing that particular work unit.. Then again, I do do all sorts of units and don't get so worried about getting the maximum amount of points :)

The points thing will change as soon as Zika dries out. I'm just suprised that many new AMD/Linux rig get tons of points. Even @HammerON mighty 7980 36 threads on Linux get trashed by at least 10 small 6-8 cores AMD. AMD/Linux has very little advantage on MCM, HST and FAH-2. I'm just hoping to do a 10 year badge in Zika. FAH-2 is out of the question on my 6-8 GB RAM Intels.

I know it doesn't look like much but calculated into points per day that adds up to 107K
Odd oet points5.JPG

Funny thing that it only last an hour or so and only on this machine not on my identical one that runs 10-15 C lower CPU temperature.

That is strange. I hope all is well with him...
Let's hope that @manofthem just took an extended vacation.

Slow day, today. I was going to go help fix an employees car today but, after doing some research, this morning, I realized my diagnosis was wrong. Unfortunately, she cannot afford cost of the parts we need, until the next paycheck. So, hopefully she can baby it until then and get to work!

I did get some things done, though not enough of them. It is still early enough, but, not sure I have the motivation!

OH, well.

Hey guys

So many apologises for the lack of pie and stats since Friday, I've been trying to get a load of work done at home and I've not stopped all weekend and having nothing but a laptop to use, I've not hardly touched! I've got all the date from the three days, I'll just try and get it put up as soon as possible :) Might not be for a few more days as I've still got a load of work to do as my daughter is down this weekend and baby due in a week or so, I have to crack on!! :) I've come to work this morning for a break!! :laugh:

Hope everyone is doing alright :)

I noticed my numbers started going down last week and I thought I was having issues with my computers. Then I remembered that I had enabled all projects (except for FightAIDS@Home as I have had problems with errors in the past with that one). Oh well.

I noticed my numbers started going down last week and I thought I was having issues with my computers. Then I remembered that I had enabled all projects (except for FightAIDS@Home as I have had problems with errors in the past with that one). Oh well.
And you had the decency not to delete all not OET I can see. Points are still on lower side.

Yesterday was play time for the GPUs (folding) so today I was tryning my luck with AMD 2700x OC, Mind you it is done in bios and under Linux. Added a 140 mm fan in the case roof with a LNA just in case...Starting point 62.8 C and 203 W at the wall. Floating point (WCG test CPU thing) 5419 MIPS. Manual stepping up from base 38 to 41. Even 39 gave me a lower power draw so the no gain there. 40 and 1.216 no luck, 1.24 V OK but still only 195 W. and here is where it went wrong. 41 and Instead of 1.26 I punched t in 1.60 V. Booted fine, 89 C on the CPU in an instance and 320 W. Back to the simple Game boost Knob. I assume it was in stage 0 default so I turned it up to 6 (of 11). The manual doesn't cover 2700xs but for 1800x that is raise in base clock off 400 MHz. I doubt that it is the case for my 2700x since all that I got was 203 W from the wall (yes as before) and 5476 MIPS, so no gain. Well now it exercise time but tomorrow is going to be another gray day so I could carry on if I didn't fry the CPU with the 1.6 V :laugh:

I am not an expert on these things, nor am I a paid computer builder or an OC guru, of any sort.

That being said, I find it hard to believe you have damaged, if at all, that 2700x. 1.6 v is nowhere near an ideal voltage, for an everyday use but, if it didn't melt, 89c isn't melting, it should be fine.

Right? Someone back me up here. Or, fill me full of bullets. IDK.

It still runs. It only took three year life out of it but that makes it a perfect excuse to buy a 3000 model sooner :laugh:

I had a similar bit of fun, seems like the b350 board I'm using at the moment doesn't play well with ryzen master, tried setting 1.5V hit apply.. checked hwinfo and it was showing 1.65v! :twitch: lol. Glad I checked the voltage straight away and didn't open any benchmarks! Your chip is probably fine, they're pretty resilient. I spent plenty of time benchmarking at 1.55v with the worse of my two 1800x with no noticable degredation.

Can't wait to grab a 3700X myself :D Hopefully it plays well with the Crosshair VI hero.

You at least have the excuse that Ryzen Master misunderstood your good intentions I on the other hand didn't check my number before I hit OK so the finger can only point on me. That is in fact the chip I good for free. I bent 11 pins on my first one and asked the shop if it could be fixed. They sent me a new one in an unopen box. OK spent a good penny in that shop over the years.

Yes let us hope that we can carry over our old MBs. AMD are pretty good at doing that.

This morning when I took a look of the PC in question mouse didn't respond and consumption was down from 203 to 118 W. Game Boost dial back to zero, fixed multiplier at 42 and for some reason the 1.44 V was already set. I gave it a go and temp went to 83 C and that extra heat came from the now 277 W (plus 74 W) the system is taking from the wall. Bench up 3.7 % so hardly worth it. I will check back in later and see if I can lower it a tad.

I use XSensors version 0.70 in both identical systems. In this PC it only give me a few temperatures including GPU, WI-FI and CPU but no voltage. In the other system shows tons off different stuff including CPU run at 1.28-1.30 without folding and at 1.32 V with. Linux people help, I checked for updates but no luck there.

From what I have heard with the Ryzen CPUs, the overclocking with WCG didn't really help so much as such, just more heat and wattage being used rather than getting a mass increase in performance.. That said, from folding/crunching, it's kinda like mining for me (a dirty word I know but before you shoot me.... :)) for those wanting to make maximum performance with minimal power usage, stock settings or unclocked/volted seems to be the best way :)

With the 6 480's I had, with stock settings they used to take 1200w from the wall constantly (not bad for my 1200w PSU either lol) but with some tweaking, I was down to 700w :) A bit of a saving however way you look at it :) But the performance was higher as well, so made a big difference :)
I feel it's the same way with the crunching we do, just stock or a bit above stock so the temps are in check and the CPU isn't screaming away either. My 5960X runs at 4.20Ghz @ 1.06vcore, fully stable and temps don't go over 50C providing I don't put the heating on (rearranged the room and it's now by a radiator!! oops... will sort that out at some point...) but it's a bit of an increase over the stock performance but it's not killing the CPU running completely flat out :) For crunching I believe the system uses 260w when crunching, higher when I have FAH running on the 1080 Ti I have in there as well obviously :)

From the Ryzen side of things tho, I think a mates system was running 130w with a 1700X at stock speeds but still throwing a boat load of decent results out as well :) Couldn't complain at that I didn't think? :)

Oh and as for the updates, I'll be doing that this evening with some luck :) Had my daughter over the weekend and she wasn't well plus all the prep work for the baby due this week, so moving server cabs and such like (you know normal things you have at home :laugh:) so as I think that is all back to where it should be, I'll do my best to get us all back up to date :)

I hope everyone is doing ok :)

System locked up sometime during the early morning so back to auto everything and 203 W.

There is still an advantage with folding due to the fast return bonus. A 50 MHz OC with a 2000 series GPU is hardly noticed on GPU-Z but means 5-20k PPD.
