@phill Restart, Shutdown -- I've tried them all. Looks like a PC rebuild is coming my way soon. :(
Sometimes a reinstall is the best way sadly :( I've had a few hangs with that and Linux here and there..

Since 1300 UTC im not getting any ZIKA tasks no more... :cry:
anyone getting any?
is it really done this time?

2700x is 16 threads running stock clock under Ubuntu, I think it is slightly slower than the 14 threads 2700X-1, around 50 MHz. Points are very close to what I get per hour doing MCM. How do yours fare?
My work PC chokes on ARP.
My Intel rig doesnt get any even if I set up.
My zen is doing like one task a time, just seems meh for time being... guess you really need those high clocks for this.

It's a 3700X if that's what you're asking. :D
Great value for gaming and a beast at crunching. :peace:

I did see the system specs and thought, do you know what, I'll just ask anyways :D :D Very nice @tami626, not at all jealous of you, not one bit!! ;) :laugh: :crying:

Judging by our glorious captain's message below, I will be re-instating other work units on my second rig. I had only gotten one ARP unit on there anyway.

Hi Team,

Been away awhile- my apologies for the disconnect... had some work and personal/health challenges to work on. I'm doing better, a lot better, and hoping to join back up with you soon.

I've added TPU to the list for the WCG 15th Birthday Challenge and I hope everyone will do their part to contribute.

See you soon!

Norton (Bill)

Your captain,

Norton01

If all goes well my 3900X will be running on the 16th for the 15th Birthday Challenge, Linux of course. It's siting on my desk still with a taped clear plastic bag on. I got up at 4 this morning and have been travelling for 10 hours and I do have a history of bending pins so after work tomorrow might be a better time to slot it in place.
Remind me - AMD site for Windows driver (this CPU will get at least 24 hours Windows time, my two 2700Xs never saw Windows), latest BIOS (f10a), decent RAM speed (3800-3900 1:1:1), OC? Depends if it doesn't hit 4.2 GHz all core with Linux I will try a fixed 4.3 GHz. Cooling is in place with 480 mm radiator, I might even put four fans on it if goes above 65 C. Joy oh joy, new power-full toy :D

I wish I'd been on sooner and mentioned this but I was deeply thrilled by his message and wish @Norton all the best getting back to us when he's good and ready :) Can't wait to hear from him again and I hope he's in a much better place now :)

Can't wait to see it @mstenholm :D :D
Neither of my 1700X's have seen Windows but I'm ok with that with them :laugh: They are meant for my eldest and the boss, but I've never got around to setting it up for them.. I need to retired the few Intel quads I have and then they can have those and I can work out what the heck to replace them with :D :)

first 3900x MCMs.JPG

The 4.1 MHz Linux 3900X is a bit faster than the 4.4 MHz Win7 4790K. Once the birthday challenge is over I will switch to Win10 and optimize the more or less default BIOS settings (f10a). RAM is at safe 17, 16, 16 and 34 running 3733. My first and only try at 3800 CL 14 didn't work out.

Until now the majority of the completed WUs are pending validation but that what happens when you start up with 100 % MCM but 6 pages (90 units) are valid ranging from 2:19 to 2:60 CPU time. As far as I can see I'm running 3.995 GHZ all cores and just below 70 C. In Cinebench I did have two cores hitting 4.575 GHz the rest from 4.325 to 4.400 GHz @ 1.28 V. That CPU is not easy to keep cool but there is room for an OC. I will wait with that until I switch to Windows and get the meter on.
