What about the 25K on an i7-6700? Sandbagging, intentional or not.
I dont understand the term "sandbagging" in this case.
He is overperforming not underperforming, right? :confused:
Anyhow, something is up with those scores.
i7 6700 matching r9 3950x lol

He started some days before the first numbers showed up on Free-DC (and BoincStats) . Edit: He signed up 2020-01-09. You are right - normal sandbagging (not uploading completed results) can't be done on new CPUs since they only get a few WUs assigned.

You'll have to give it a few days to sort itself out as it'll collect a bulk load of results and then it'll go back to normal :) Check tomorrow and see what he has then :) @blobster21 we're talking about you ;) :D :laugh:

Damn !! I didn't expect that much attention for my first run ! i'm under tight scrutiny it seems !

Anyway, glad to be on board and cheers to everyone.

PS: i can provide detallled informations & screenshots for all those machines if something seems "fishy"

Welcome. No all is good but for some reason your results came late. Are you "getting" some of @phill ´s server parts?

Hey @blobster21 !! :) I believe there's another way if you tick a box in the WCG Options of your sign in, it'll allow you to share your systems that you have crunching :) If you want to of course :)

Normally if the hosts show in Free-DC they also show in BOINCStats but not in this case, they only show in Free-DC. Strange

I would gladly oblige ! The thing is, i browsed every possible sub-sections @ www.worldcommunitygrid.com and did not find the way to share more info with you guys.

The closest related settings are as follow :

Should i register an account on boincstats ? i used to have one in 2013 when i first got involved in data crunching (using a different nickname)

Yes indeed ! we have been in touch and if everything goes well, i should be able to enjoy several new machines in the weeks to come. They will be 100% dedicated to the TechPowerUp! WCG team, and should run 24/7, 10 months a year.

Your hosts are now showing on BONICStats. The only data that are "instant" there is the 3 daily updates for total points, the rest are delayed up to one day including the split up on hosts.

Are the 3000 series Ryzen CPU's better overall? We know that Ryzen + MIP was a recipe for low PPD, but did the changes to Zen 2 correct this?

CL again:


$300 for a 3700X is a decent price.
$100 for a 2700 is a decent price. (recently on sale for $135)

I'm not actually looking for an answer to this: Is a 3700X worth 3 times a 2700?

I don't think that $300 for a 3700X a great price if you can get a 2700 for $100... I don't believe there's 3 times the performance between them...

There's always an app for everything I find...... lol We are built on apps lol

Maybe that's why phones need to have 8Gb of ram and 128Gb of storage?? May as well carry around a laptop!! lol Anyways, I digress :) I just stick with the usual sites and wait till I can use a nice big screen :)

Exactly my thinking :) healthy VRM is essential for 24/7, since I doubt 99% of users are going to be pumping 200W+ through the system all day long. (This is why I have a 3000 RPM top-down 140mm cooler/fan on my 3950X: blows air onto the VRM & also the solid caps that aren't touching the HS: these have significantly reduced life over a certain temp).

Oh man, what I wouldn't give for a 3990X.

Santa, please?

:3
You and I think a lot alike when it comes to coolers. I like my top down blowers, and for the same reason.

As for the 3990X, at $3,990 (CPU only), you might actually want to look at the cost and PPD between a 3990X build and and building 4 3950X's, at $3,000, especially considering that a hefty custom water cooling solution will be required for the 3990X.

You and I think a lot alike when it comes to coolers. I like my top down blowers, and for the same reason.

IDK, I'd need four more motherboards of at least reasonable quality B450, at least 4x 2x4GB DDR4, powersupplies, etc, cooling. It might work out to be a bit cheaper initially but the maintenance side of things it'd be simple to just have that insane core density in a single socket system.

The 3990X is a pipe-dream for me unfortunately, it's completely out of my budget but I can at least dream ^-^ Realistically, my current plan is to pick up another 1 or 2 out-going 2700s on insane deals (<£130) and replace the 2600X, and 1200 systems (I recently set up the 1200 from spare parts) so I would have more cores and higher perf/watt at minimal investment.

I'd find a use for the 2600X eventually, part of me actually wants to set the 2600X up as my "gaming" PC and use the 3950X as my workstation when I'm doing my content creation/creativity. So when I'm just messing in Warframe or playing some Metro Exodus, teh 3950X can keep its full power for SCIENCE!

I got the 3950X+RTX 2070 on Interest Free credit, and I have 9 months to pay that off before interest (I will pay it off before that, I use it as Buy Now Pay Later). So my next "Huge" investment will be Q4 this year or early 2021; and my long-term plan might involve one or more discounted 3950Xs :)

@thebluebumblebee @Sashleycat I too like a top flow cooler. But with an added reason. My newest PC has an NVME SSD. The top flow cooler helps cool it as well.

I had been using a Yate Loon as an intake with some plastic on the backside to cool the VRMs on my MEG Creation. It kept VRM temps at about 70-72C loaded at 50% fan speed cause it was loud and made an even more annoying whirlling as it sucked air past the cutouts on my case. Temps are warm but acceptable for the board but the noise was awful.

Fast forward to about a week ago. I picked up some Gentle Typhoon AP15s and decided that I might as well replace this VRM fan while I source the rest of the fan upgrade. I sacrifice the old Yate to make a shroud and transfer over the DIY plastic diverter. At 100% I can't hear the fan whatsoever and the VRM temps max at 60C. Gentle Typhoons are incredible.

Gentle Typhoons are great. But I didn't think they were still making them. I have 3-4 120mm GT (not sure which ones though) laying about.
