Thanks, I have a deal for a 32Gb kit. Crucial 1600, from @T-Bob

Should work out just fine!! :)

:lovetpu:
PS @phill I was aware of the difference with 1600 and faster DDR3. In fact, I used to preach the 1600 over those, back in the day. For gaming 1600 is a sweet spot with DDR3.

So I made an order on a 3900X at the Danish website Compumail.dk on release day- I haven't heard from them since. I then ordered it at Proshop.dk that promised 10 day delivery time. That was 10 days ago. They just added 10 days and I got so pissed off that I deleted my order. Just a warning to others that might try their luck at any of these two shops. I think that I will travel to US and camp in front of a shop that actually can deliver. I might wait until December and grab a 3950X while I'm there. :laugh:

I was hoping that I could have posted some Zika results but that will have to wait some more weeks. I returned home late last night and I'm off to yet another north African work place in a few days so completing my build is put on hold.

dammit. it appears that in the cornucopia of cables I own, I do not have a USB to USB cable anywhere to be found. I have USB to nearly every conceivable object but, no, not one to connect, via USB, my computer to my stereo (a cheap box that resembles a stereo, in that it has remote speakers and real bare wire connectors, and a PC USB connection), in the hopes that that, will provide me with audio from my TV connected gaming PC.

Since I have no headphones that I want wear while gaming, or watching youtube, I was hopimg that I could get Audio from my APU, and use the HDMI video from my 580....

But, my APU, the A10=6700, does not work with a 580...too new...? I know, the 6700 is 2012, or something, but it was free and will be crunching soon. As soon as I figure out how to use my second HDD!! Win10 sees it but, only as a "supported memory" type drive(?).

I want it seen as my "D" drive, for BOINC data and game storage (1TB spinner).

OH Well, 1st World problems, no? Eventually, I will have another day off, I will figure that out and get another cable, one I can use (either a USB 2 USB or some other Audio cables to make this system work right!).

Rant/ bitch/ I can't believe I don't have a USB Cable/ OVER
End Transmission.....

Seems very weird Arjai?? Can you not disable to GPU from the CPU and allow it that way??

I take it it's seen in the bios (for the hard drive) and is online/partitioned in Windows??

Hopefully you won't be too long before another day off mate!! :)

@Arjai , you recently mentioned building some new systems and seemed to be undecided about what you'd do for storage. Saw this and thought of you:

Hello everyone!

It's great to see so many still active on here and crunching away. After a while of inactivity, as well as some pc-downsizing, I decided to strike up my pc again just a few minutes ago. I'll try to stick around a bit more than before, but boy times get difficult and hectic; I'll do what I can.

Hope everyone is doing well. I see Norton and stinger haven't been on here in a bit either; i definitely understand, but I hope they're good.

Straight to the point:
Should I go linux on r7 1700 cruncher?
Both @phill and @mstenholm run linux so I assume there is some merit in it :D:D

+50% if you aim for points. There are no (or little) Linux advantages for anything else then OpenZika atm.
Edit: Stock 1700 will do a little more than the 3 GHz base. Going by my 3200 MHz CL 14, 100 % OpenZika, +25000 PPD you should be looking at 20k PPD. I run Ubuntu 18.04. You will find that installing the program is very similar to Windows but as you know people in this forum is helpful if you need some guidance.

I got some 2133mhz cl14 patriot vipers tbh, it was like 30$ so I just got them. Will it impair my performance much?
Yeah, havent touched linux before so I have no idea. I know there are like milion versions of it. I shall use ubuntu then

I got some 2133mhz cl14 patriot vipers tbh, it was like 30$ so I just got them. Will it impair my performance much?
Yeah, havent touched linux before so I have no idea. I know there are like milion versions of it. I shall use ubuntu then
Honestly I don't know how much the RAM speed will affect the performance but I just listed my speed in case that your numbers would be way off. As you might know Ryzen can be picky when it comes to RAM. Are yours on the QVL for your board? I'm sure that your other set will work, in case you need to trouble shoot.

Hello everyone!

It's great to see so many still active on here and crunching away. After a while of inactivity, as well as some pc-downsizing, I decided to strike up my pc again just a few minutes ago. I'll try to stick around a bit more than before, but boy times get difficult and hectic; I'll do what I can.

Hope everyone is doing well. I see Norton and stinger haven't been on here in a bit either; i definitely understand, but I hope they're good.
It's great to have you back on board sir :) I hope things calm down for you soon :)

Guys! So I did some shopping... :D :D
Straight to the point:
Should I go linux on r7 1700 cruncher?
Both @phill and @mstenholm run linux so I assume there is some merit in it :D:D
I use a variance called Mint and to be honest it seems to work rather well :) I don't run my PCs 24/7, it would kill me on Electric costs but the times I do seem to net me some fairly nice scores :) I have noticed that I'd recommend 16Gb RAM for running anything with as many threads, just because then you have 1Gb per core and I've not yet noticed anything about 40% to 50% usage of that so far.. My Xeon's I have, they run about the same, 1Gb per core :)

I've also not tweaked any settings whatsoever on both of my Ryzen systems, so they could be drawing too much power, running tighter RAM timings and speeds but I've not had the time to sadly look into it :(

If there's anything I can help with, just put up a post :) (I also had no ideas when it came to Linux but Mint and other distributions make it easy :))

Team I will be offline for some time, that doesn't mean that I stopped producing, if my power supply stays on, but I will only reply to Private mails.

Well, I got the A-10 Gamer/ Cruncher to provide audio to the TV it is set up to. Had to do a force install and dump all the drivers . Now, the 580 is doing it all on "19. something", latest driver!!

Now, tomorrow morning, I will see if I can get my second drive to be recognized as my "d:" drive. I wonder, does it matter that I loaded the OS as a Windows to Go? Should I do it again with just a straight Win10.iso? I can't think of any other reason why Windows doesn't see it as a "d:" drive, just a supplemental drive...

I want it as a storage and as my BOINC Data drive, so I can keep my OS drive clean.

Any way, That's for the morning...Good night TPU!!
