looks like I finally get a damn piece of pie
and fit I dont know dude, it says 520???
look at the bottom though... says we are about to pass 491 and 492 places
I see now, means we should be about to be in the top 500 any moment bro
Click on the 'Teams' in Navigation bar on the left with this link...
Here's a shortcut to where you'll find TechPowerUp! in 493.
msgclb welcome to the team.
We have got through the 500 barrier. We are now at 486, good going everyone.
I think we will be crushing several teams this weekend. Im guessing we should be top 400 easily by the end of the weekend.
Congrats everyone!! Yes, we broke 500. And yes fits, you should be rolling over me when that i7 comes up to speed. I better get some tire track remover....
EDIT: we're at 480th place with the morning update...
Had some rigs down while I was out of town but should be getting back to regular strength soon.
i ALSO HAD MY AMD RIG DOWN ALL WEEK ALMOST, JUST GOT IT BACK UP YESTERDAY AFTERNOON. MY I7 WAS DOWN YESTERDAY. This weekend, we gonna move right along past everybody else. Good going everyone.
it seems things are starting to slow down a bit... http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=team&proj=bwcg&team=22175
we need more ppl and more machines
I'm knocking down a wall (metaphorically) to add one more machine! I need something to put the machine on in the limited space that I have available. I could buy a 1366 motherboard or I could put together the components that I have for a 775 system.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (own)
GIGABYTE GA-EP45T-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard (own)
Intel Core i7 920 (own)
DFI LANPARTY JR X58-T3H6 LGA 1366 Intel X58 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard (need)
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17066) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory (own)
SAPPHIRE 100259-1GL Radeon HD 4870 (own)
I might go for the DFI LP DK X58 motherboard instead.
why don't you get a foxconn bloodrage??
there are lots of positive feed back on the OC ability of the bloodrage...
My practical side says to go with what you already have. The Q6600 will do well. I'm currently building a dedicated WCG machine around the same chip.
I agree with Paulieg, it seems that the Q6600 is popular for WCG machines
I am just waiting on a PSU to build a new rig to add to mine as well.
I was getting great results with the 65nm quads. I don't think it matters so much with WCG...more cores is better.
I've given up having dedicated machines. If I don't use a machine, then it's shut down.
BUT, I had the parts for a q9450 rig laying around for a long time so i finally got that built - 16gig ddr2-1066, MSI P45 platinum, HD4850 with remote. My current multimedia rig can't handle some video and transcoding takes way too long.
How much better performance do you think I will get with it? Haven't tested it yet. Maybe today or tomorrow.
Anyone have a s775 motherboard that they would like to sell me for my Q6600 dedicated WCG machine? I thought I had one, but the guy I was going to buy from has not got back to me. It's the last thing I need to get her up and running!
I finally have a small piece of the pie, even though my i7 rig is down! By Wednesday, I'll have my i7 back up, and by next weekend I'll have a Q6600 dedicated cruncher up and running.
Crunch hard everyone! 24/7/365 please....That is the key to the overall team heavyweight division... As you all may have noticed, the easy days of moving up 1,000 places are over. We are getting into some real teams now.
The easiest thing to do is leave the rig crunch all the time....
Having said that, I see some heavyweight contenders coming up on this team. We know Chicken Patty is already there, obviously crunching the rigs for all they are worth, but there are those with single cores that are beating their machines brains out. I can see that in your scores. Keep going!
To 3xploit, congrats, you already rolled me over. To msgclb, I see you coming and will try to pull over, but if I don't in time, no problem, just keep on rolling and squash me like a bug.... You folks are going to be heavyweights. Just wait till you have major farms running....
You guys> <poor old 123bob_TPU.....
.....(Hehe, I'm #33, overall in the world, on WCG, under the name "123bob", come get me... ....Rammie is even higher.)
I intend to possibly PO the staff around here by recruiting from your forum on the other sections. I apologize in advance. Delete any posts you see that are not in-line with the purpose of promoting good computing, and please PM me. I intend to give the generic appeal, let everyone know what we do, then let them choose. I'm composing the post and plan to PM it to Fits, CP, and Paulieg. If you folks say it's good to go, I'll unleash it. I will direct folks directly to this thread, and this particular post. They can decide from there.
The only section I will leave alone is your very effective folding team. It is poor conduct to recruit there. Kind of like robbing Peter to pay Paul....
There is some sharing that could go on with the TPU folding team, If Fits and the leaders here decided to have an agreement that we will fold GPUs for them if they give us CPU crunchers, we could make that happen. For my case, I'm willing to rearrange some hardware so they get some wicked GPU power.
The flip side of this, since we have only one thread to work with, is that LOTS of the questions will be the same. We will have to answer them without saying stuff like, "didn't you read the thread?" No, they didn't, and I don't expect them to have to wade through 50 pages of stuff....Just provide the answer, even if you cut and paste posts from before....
Bottom line....I have looked again at what's in front of us. I think 100th place may be doable. It will take some time, some recruiting, but let's see....:up: (@Paulieg, we gotta get :up: here, this one, I use it all the time....)
EDIT: Dang, another book by Bob.....
finally! I'm able to crunch again!! a reformat did the job
my i7 is down till i figure out this LCD/video card problem
p4 still crunching 24/7 though
I see the P4, it's crunching it's brains out.
Let's get the i7 figured out....What's happening now? Have you asked for help in the other TPU sections? I can and will send for the cav.....I'm not sure they are going to rush over the hill as fast as they did last time, but who knows....
Let's get this fixed up. You ran over me for one update but couldn't stay. I passed you back up....
Uh, Oh, and Captain Sir, with all due respect, where is your catchy TPU WCG Sig? Gotta have that always.....Copy mine if you need something quick. It's all good....
24" acer lcd died after 2 years of 24/7 on.
switching cables and crap around messed up something on the i7.
i been too angry to mess with it... i dont want to get mad and break something.
im awaiting the final version of our TPU WCG sigs and avatars. should be very soon.
Ah, sounds like you lost your vid card? I agree, don't mess with it if you're not in the mood. I lost a $450 SM board that way...I just plain screwed up. Comedy of errors.
On the sigs and avatars, don't wait. put something temporary up now. You post other places, let them see it...That's the real recruitment tool on your own forum.
My .02 cents,
I'd rather do this than folding although I won't be active more than an hour a day to keep the electricity bill low At least its some right ?
