Could we have pics of some of them?
Yea, pics please
Ok, but go easy on the critiquing.
holy crap buck, that's some serious folding power!
listen to this, while celebrating with me:
i just made a monster rad/swiftech 240 highflow paralell loop!!!!! i dont know how i did it, but it loads at 33-35c°, idle 27c and its not even fully bleeded yet!
i think i may be in the game again
i try it tomorrow... i use 4 fans,the ingenious magmas, on the whole combo... its nearly passive!!!
EDIT: totally sure, that wont cross 36 degrees ever
EDIT 2: 2 Pumps... i use the thermaltake for driving the fucking water in this danged bitch rad,and the magicool for driving the Heatkiller!
Wow! very nice! Do you own stock with the power company? hehehe
Guys, how does this point thing work anyway? I just got my i7 back and I want to crunch a little. Can I shut my computer off in the middle of a task and resume it when it's on or something? How come more and more tasks appear? I started with one and now I have like 8.
Oh and I was just starting to crunch when I had to take my i7 rig down for a week or so, and now I get a message saying that I may not get credited for a few of the tasks and that I should consider aborting. I'm lost.
Wus have deadlines you can view them in the advanced mode
1: Points. BOINC runs a benchmark on your computer, and then to determine points it multiplies the benchmark score by the time taken for the WU by a constant (for example, .31)
2. Shutting Down in the Middle of a Task. Absolutely, but you will loose up to about 3 minutes of work (or however long it has been since the last checkpoints). I run WCG on my mom's computer, it is only on when she uses it and it is turned off the rest of the time
3. Tasks. The i7 has 8 threads, so it will run 8 work units at a time. My Q9400 has 4 threads, so it run 4 WUs at once.
4. Each work unit has a deadline. The standard time is 10 days. If a work unit is returned past the deadline, you will not receive credit for it and it isn't useful scientifically. If WCG doesn't get a WU back by the deadline time, it reassigns it to another computer. Thus, if you have WUs that are past the deadline, you should abort them, because you are just wasting your computers power by continuing to run them
Hope this clears things up a bit
Does this seem normal:
I've never had a WU run for more than 15 hours or so before But here we have nearly double that
BTW, Callisto is my laptop, a 1.4ghz Pentium M that crunches approximately 24/7
Also, my quad is working on a HFCC WU that it is currently 54% done with, but at this point it has taken 11 hours. Should I let it finish, or abort it?
I dont have chips that can be compared to your WCG hardware, but those times are pretty long. Surely they can't be normal esp if your rigs run @ 100%.
Ion abort the one on your quad. My slower dual has never taken that long. The times on the Pentium M is about normal.Its about the same speeds as my P4@2.5ghz
I don't think the one on the Pentium M is normal, it normally only takes ~12 hours per HFCC WU. Maybe there is just a batch of long WUs out there currently? I'm thinking of just letting the quad keep running that WU, I was suspicious of the 30hr one on the Pentium M but it kept running and validated fine
i have several WU (rice) lasting 15hr i guess its normal, its running on my dual 6320
I just had a hard drive go down in one of my crunchers(my wife's).I am going to replace it and do a new install of windows.My ? is,IF,i can access her old drive.Is there any way of transfering info over to her new Boinc install so as not to create a new host.So it will still be putting out under the old host #.
try to do a drive backup
i used fix-it utilities,and c****d it. nevermind, these procs are so important,its a shame to want money for this. i rescued a drives data, that had a dead mbr written in front of the working one,with it, like a cave beeing blocked by rocks
I have a cruncher down from now until further notice
The HDD in my laptop died, so it'll be offline until at least tonight. I'm going to have to reinstall Windows and all of my programs (BOINC first ). Just letting everyone know, my output is going to be lower today
my output is going to be down today because of harddrive also (what is up with the HDD problems)i have a spare that i am going to get setup in the morning.
Thanks for clearing things up, I've been crunching for about 15-18 hours so far without problems.
There's so much raw power in an i7 that I don't even notice a difference when I'm crunching and when I'm not.
My laptop is now back up, but won't be crunching at full force until later (installing a bunch of program again )
Finally got my system running smooth. Time to get some points!
Awesome! An i7, depending on the OC, should be able to produce anywhere from 3K to 4.5k PPD (BOINC).
With that i7 you'll be flying up the ranks!
The WU I was talking about earlier finally finished. That's a lot of points (if it validates) for one work unit
