    In a prior post, we were discussing BOINC points and possible equivalence across different platforms (i.e. WCG and GPUGrid). I mentioned a tech paper that went into this more. I couldn't get to it then, but now I can.

    Here it is.

    Regards,
    Bob

    EDIT:

    <<<<< OK, new sig and avatar....

    Dont think you need more stars, the only restriction I think is on size :confused:

    EDIT: When you go to User CP and Edit Sig does it show up in the preview panel.

    Yup, it shows fine in the preview...:confused:


    Another topic and heads up for those doing GPUGrid.....just found this issue.

    As the GPUGrid folks know, GPUGrid took a dump and is offline.

    I noticed that the rig I run both WCG and GPUGrid on would not allow updates to the WCG project. I couldn't report finished units.

    I'm running BOINC 6.6.7

    GPUGrid is down and I keep getting a message stating it is trying to get to the project servers. In the meantime, it doesn't seem to want to let WCG do it's thing. I get no WCG messages when I hit the update button for WCG.

    I suspended GPUGrid, reset it, no help. I finally detached from it and WCG can do it's work. Just a heads up.

    Bob

    EDIT: Dooh! there's the SIG below...Thx.

    EDIT#2: OK, now how do I delete a post? I noticed I somehow duplicated the post above instead of editing it. It don't see an option to delete it in the edit function. :confused: ...... Dang, I'm such a noob here....:rolleyes::p

    Looks like Bob's spreading WCG fever at TPU.


    And going crazy at the same time.

    Yeah. I think we might just have a legit team. With any luck, by next week I'll be running 3 WCG rigs. :)

    I read that TPU team needs to get into top 100 to get its own forum. That's going to be rough.

    Yeah it looks like a good start to the team.

    I am running this on my two machines that do Folding@home with the GPU's and it seems to have no effect on their performance at all :D

    When I get my other machines sorted I will add their CPU's to WCG and Fold with the GPU's


    We just need to get a few more members to add their hardware to this as well...just tell them that they can get some pie :p

    Added a link in my sig as well. Getting to the top 100 is going to be a tall task, lets get everyone to add something to their sig. :toast:

    Generally 1 day is enough, but give a week.

    In other words, there will be no day that your output is the same. Your average output will be average outcome of 2 weeks or more. You should ignore your first two weeks of output, and start counting your daily output as your average after that period.

    OK, I just installed WCG on my in laws PC too. They'll never even know that they are helping. Looks like that makes three for me now, and 4 next week. :laugh:

    well since I had the rad out and stuff, I cleaned it up really good. my temps were high but no wonder. The fans when I removed them, it had a thick layer of dust on the rad, literally it must have had no air flow at all. I also had noticed now that the fans are quieter.


    Well after about two hours of crunching, here are the results:

    load temps before were:
    Core 1 75
    Core 2 72
    Core 3 74
    Core 4 70

    Load temps now, about 5Âșc lower across all cores, see below
