Prediction:
X570 will be more ThreadRipper "lite" than updated AM4 and will be required for core counts above 8. It would be nice to think that the 10/12/16 core CPU's could go on existing 300 and 400 series motherboards, but I doubt it. This is not a bad thing as this should also increase RAM channels and capacity.

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.
As long as there are no massive increases in wattage/temp from the GPU, I would say that would be a positive as well :)

I think anything up to 12 core with the AM4 socket, maybe 16 but definitely 16 and up for the latest and greatest Threadripper :) Either way, it's going to be awesome :)

To get over 8 cores, they will have to go to a second "chiplet". That's why I'm thinking "TR lite"

Everything I hope is updated to the best I can manage this evening.. It's 1am and I've yet to even write my daughters diary, so I'm going to bed and I'll do that tomorrow!! :)

@thebluebumblebee - I can see the logic :) I hope it happens but more than the number of cores, I hope the IPC and core speed is up there, if not faster..... :)

I think my PPD is down due to HSTB. Not that I'm complaining. HSTB is supposed to end next month and I'm 31 days away from my 2 year badge. I think I have a little over 20 days in the queue.

Switched over to Open Zika just to make up to two years, so I'm currently doing mostly that and Help Stop TB :) I'm not sure if I'm going to make it to a years badge but I've definitely gone up a few badgets with it, so I can't complain :D
Also last night I managed to get two of my little crunchers up and running :) Just running them during the day for now but I hope it'll make a little difference to my scores and the teams over all :)

Quicky screen grabs :D

Changed the fan and the header I was using over today and the temps have dropped rather nicely I see there :) 68C down to 50C on the package, that'll do me :D
Here's my little star of a Xeon E3 1245

1550944155777.png


Another one that's enjoying the cooler temps out in the conservatory on top the server cab :D

Got my 5960X running a little bit faster now as I was playing about with CB 15 Extreme.. I'll leave it at 4.40Ghz for a little while :) I'll see if I start getting any issues with it running that fast :)

I just happened to go to Free-DC, a moment ago. For old times sake, if for no other reason (I fondly remember the days of posting Team stats, some time ago).

Anyway, as it turns out, using my version of Math, it looks as though I may hit a goal I had not even dreamt about achieving.

If things maintain their present course, I will be in the top 50 cruncher's, by means of total points earned!

I mean, WTF!! um, excuse me. I mean WOW! If you would have told me, last November, that I would be in the TOP 50 by April? I would have laughed.

The last OpenZika unit I received was on the 5th at 10:13:24 UCT. I have now started to run MCM on one of my 2700x rigs and pretty soon the second will run out of Zikas. That will affect points. Do any off you get any new OpenZikas?

With all 40 treads running with the current mix my guess is 33,600 PPD. Not bad for around 400 W.

at the momen my 1200 is offline as i await a GPU for it, it comes tomorrow :x ..also only got the 2nd 1700 up this morning. when everything is running for a week or so will you help me find out if they are under-performing for any reason pls? i admit my anxiety is getting a bit high

Okay to clarify here is what i will have running by end of tomorrow hopefully

2700X @ ~3.4 GHz (70W limited in Ryzen master) on Windows 10 Pro. This is overnight and most of the day. I suspend WCG when i game, for about 3-4 hours a day tops.

2x 1700 @ 3.2 GHz (24/7 with Linux)

1x 1200 @ 3.1 GHz (24/7 with Linux)

1x 200GE @ 3.2 GHz. this is my mums pc. its on 24/7 and crunches all night and 95% of the day, she uses it for about 30m to 1 hour a day and it is set to suspend tasks when she uses it.


I will buy another wattage meter and plug into my PC (or find a way to route my PC to the same distributor as my crunching rigs). the 200GE system uses about 45W I think.

Nothing to worry about at all, everything is as is :)

Some work units work better with Intel and Windows, others Intel and Linux or AMD and Linux, its just a mix of things :) I was one for never really chasing points, just making sure that had the rigs on crunching away whenever I could, thankfully with solar panels, if the day is good, I'll have everything I can running at once, I'd never think of doing it without them simply because it's just too expensive for me and I couldn't afford the electric.
If you're limiting the CPU for power, then it won't run at 100% which I'm sure you know, but just wondering when you game, do you set it to run 100% then? :)

Watt meters are great things and I plug them into every rig I ever build, just because I then know what each piece of kit is taking :) Also allows me to know just how much power I'm using.. Bit like having a smart meter for your electric and gas at home :) Plus I like to find out anyways :)

Nothing to worry about at all, everything is as is :)

I'm not in it for the points either:) i like to help a good cause but the points tell me if my hardware is doing as well as it should (which my anxiety likes to play on)~

I only limit the 2700X when runnign WCG, i have two profiles in RM, one to 70W and one to stock. I did some testing and the 2700X at stock with no profile uses 120-130W package power for 3.9-4 Ghz crunching wcg. When set to 70W in Rm, it runs 3.4 GHz but uses 70W. So it is a nearly 2x increase in power use for maybe 15-20% increase in crunching performance. I figure it is not worth the extra power use and heat / stress on my motherboard vrm.

yeah when i game i set it to default to keep the clocks up at, or near, 4 ghz in games :)

You need to understand that the PPD can bounce around quite a bit according to the work that you get. Here's my 1700, running mostly Zika with some HST thrown in. As you can see, when you get into the right WU's, the PPD can skyrocket.

Exactly this @ArbitraryAffection :) Try not to let it worry you too much, you'll have good and bad days with whatever you do, so relax and think that you're doing some good and leave it there :) If you start concerning yourself over a few points here or a thousand here, you'll wear yourself out worrying :(

:3 btw I am in the process of trying to get a third 1700 so i can retire the 1200 and have all 3 24/7 rigs with the 8 core. But no joy as I was lend some money by my mother to start my project and it would be rude to ask for more haha, even tho it only £150 more. A couple friends have old 1700s they might want to sell so i guess i will see in the future.



By third board is
118297
as you can see it lacks VRM cooling heatsink, but 1700 stock isn't too bad. Do you think would be OK for 24/7? maybe I Can get some thermal adhesive pads and put a heatsink on those Mosfets. WIth all my boards being relatively "budget" B series models my main concern is not of the temp or stress on CPU but on mobo vrm honestly.
I use the Scythe Kabuto 3 specifically so air is pushed across the VRMs.

FWIW, default BOINC behavior (not the work units themselves, but the way BOINC works) can cause PPD to bounce around a little bit on its own. There is a setting you can change only by creating a cc_config.xml file with the report_results_immediately flag set. This uploads a work unit as soon as it is finished, as opposed to waiting for the next time BOINC communicates with the server. Just open Notepad/ paste this in, and save it as cc_config.xml. It goes in the boincdata folder... wherever it is by default, I dunno. During installation, I make a new folder for BOINC to live in called DC, with subdirectories Boinc and BoincData. The DC folder helps keep things neat if I decide to install FAH, too. It would also go there.

Code:
<cc_config>
<options>
<report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
</options>
</cc_config>
