@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?

View attachment 135531
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.

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.

It is itching in my whole body to switch to Windows and 1) get a little more knowledge/control over my system 2) optimize settings in BIOS and test PBO. But with 63 pages of MCM in progress I can wait a few days. I did re-start today back to Linux and put a meter on. Interesting enough it consumed 225 W with 23 threads and 215 W with 24. I assume I lost some average speed in the process. 215 W with a 20 W pump and 7 fans is not bad.

Edit: repeated the 23/24 thing, now 223 to 218 W.

So, the GTX 980 Ti is paired with my 6700K. The challenge came along just as the weather warmed up. To help with the temperature in the house, and the challenge, I decided that I would stop F@H and bump the 6700K to 100%. Easy, right? aaaagh! I went back to the system after I thought the F@H WU should have finished, felt the back of the system and it was cool. Turned the monitor on to NOTHING. Long story - like 36 hours - short, somehow the OS install got corrupted (160 GB HDD maybe). Last night, I installed Clear Linux on an SSD and it been running like a champ.

Clear Linux: Intel's take on Linux built specifically for performance on Intel CPU's. (runs well on AMD as well) The only problem I has was trying to install BOINC too soon after install and it gave me an error. I got it to work by clicking on "check for updates" and when that finished, installed the BOINC manager and then followed the instructions on WCG for Debian.

So still in the early stages but this is with 23xMCM and one thread for folding. All I did was to check that WIN 10 had the balance plan and set 3800 CL16. Don't get fooled by the low temperatures, I got a window open. It sits at 70-71 C and 4050 MHz at more normal conditions. If it wasn't because my Linux FAH corrupted I would stay there, it is faster both for WCG (MCM) and folding.

How's everyone going?? Been away from the forum and PC for that matter for a few days with my little lady and I being on our lonesome, so not had much time for PC's or anything for that matter lol :) I did notice this just whilst I was collecting some data earlier about the ARP project and the scores...
1574634693359.png


I was very much shocked when I saw the Hero-1700X picking up that many points!! But then each of the returned ARP units, have more often than not, given higher points than the claimed points... Was just surprised at how much more this one was!! :) I hope everyone else is having as much luck with their points??

How's everyone going?? Been away from the forum and PC for that matter for a few days with my little lady and I being on our lonesome, so not had much time for PC's or anything for that matter lol :) I did notice this just whilst I was collecting some data earlier about the ARP project and the scores...

I was very much shocked when I saw the Hero-1700X picking up that many points!! But then each of the returned ARP units, have more often than not, given higher points than the claimed points... Was just surprised at how much more this one was!! :) I hope everyone else is having as much luck with their points??
Yes and no, more points but in a reasonable amount. I can see that all the units are sent to UK :) I only received 7 in total.

I'm guessing we'll be waiting for stock for a while.. It's a damn nice CPU tho :D

Aren't they releasing the Epyc series today as well?
