I'll check that when I get back home- Thanks!
Ok guys, I just got conformation that my RMA has been shipped to me! Now I replied to Bow's PM about ram and now I am in need of a CPU. Does anyone have a spare CPU laying around that is a Brisbane or above they would toss my way? Not looking for a speed demon, just something I could use as a HTPC.
I can almost certainly pick up some sort of Brisbane X2 for you on the 20th. I'd be happy to send it to you for a very reasonable price. Probably something like an X2 4400+ or X2 4600+
I'm loving these GPU WUs:
10 AM and I'm already at nearly 19k
They seem to hang for a short bit at 99.415% then the go ahead and upload. This is normal for some reason as it is doing it to all of ours.
If I had a couple more gpu's then I would be right on your heels. LOL I am planning now. Gpu's for all my rigs.
But I think you are right as there is going to be a change of order for the top 20 now.
Also I am getting 32 points per result across the board. I have had about 5 invalids which I still got 16 points for and 1 error with no points. About a crap load of pages with valids. Also they seem to be validating really quick now.
Also you guys know what these gpu wu mean now right? No more beta gpu units. Which means that badge is getting farther away now damnit.
We'll see how things turn out. I have three GPUs going right now, but you have considerably more CPU cores. It will be an interesting battle, for sure
It is a shame that they're no longer in Beta. I'm not quite half way to my Silver badge in Beta, and the GPU Betas were certainly helping me out there
Still, I'll take the consistent 50k+ PPD from the GPUs over the badge
Nah I think your going to get me due to the fact of the extra gpu. If these things continue for any length of time gpu crunching is going to be the way to go. Now does anyone know if these things are here permanent or an every now and then thing?
Given that they've issued a press release and put out a new FAQ, I'd say it's probably here to stay, at least for a while. That's just a guess, however, so we'll have to see. But I'll keep crunching them like they could end at any minute and keep adding GPUs like they'll be going on forever
I just checked in on my PC at home and the cards are at 98% load 53deg cel.
GPU are doing it too fast... They were all completed waiting for a connection without no more work lol..
Ok I got ram thanks to BOW! What CPU should I go for? Its a HTPC but would like atleast a dual core. but I am hoping around 45W?
Would you be interested in that Brisbane offer I mentioned?
Let me see if anyone has a 45NM 45W cpu for this board cause it does not like higher voltages and heat too well. that is why I had to RMA it in the first place.
The cores that were working with the GPUs didn't run at 100%. It was bound by the GPU speed, not the CPU so there is idle time in there. Can you force boinc to run one more thread than you have cores?
Finally got around to reinstalling Ubuntu on a USB stick instead of a MicroSD on the Celeron. Boot times have improved 2 fold over the MicroSD, so so far everything looks like it will work fine.
Check your CPU cooler, and your OC.
Keep us posted, that's a sweet little box you have there
Found the 6th core on my 1045T rig... I set the Advanced Clock Calibration in the BIOS from Auto to Disabled and rebooted.
I have no idea why it changed but it's doing fine now and I'll see what happens over the next few hours
My EVGA board is in the hands of UPS; it's scheduled to be here Tuesday. Unfortunately not a great day, as Tuesday is my busiest day of the week, but I'll cope. I'll build it Tuesday night and install Windows, and then tweak/OC it after class on Wednesday
Yea ACC needs to be off for non unlocking chips. It does crazy things when its on
Hey Brandon you have a shot of hitting top ten again tonight. You will have a very firm top 20 place.
MOTHER OF GOD those GPU's are putting out some PPD! They have only been running since 7AM!
Told you man. LOL
One of my 1055t's with a modest oc has already done 11k points today.
Just wait until the end of the day. I think we're in for some big surprises.
If these are still running by the weekend I'm going to add the 6870 Hawk and a 7850 to the party
Update- we have a new member- Soup joined today... added him to the Welcome thread
I can't believe the PPD the GPU's are putting out
I wouldn't have even thought about it if Brandon wouldn't have mentioned it yesterday. Thanks Brandon
