Good work [Ion], that looks really nice! Can't wait to see your pie today and tomorrow :D
Thanks :)

I think I got them and got them installed too late to have much impact today--but tomorrow should be fun :D

Everything is up and going:
http://img.techpowerup.org/121126/gpus.png
I'm running 3 WUs on each GPU and then one on just the CPU. I think I may add a second to the CPU later--usage is in the 60-80% range most of the time.
Very nice! :toast:

Once you get used to running them you can consider running the All projects app_info as well. Mine has been doing well with it so far and am considering adding 2 more gpu wu's to the rig* :toast:

*will likely give it another day or two just to make sure the wu's are running error free ;)

Indeed, that's my plan. I'd rather be able to have the CPU do something else (not that it really matters with 1 WU at a time :rolleyes:)--but my goal was to test it out using the existing app_info file. That way when the computer only detected two GPUs and only used one I knew what to do. But I'll certainly try the all projects one.

What's the text of the file you're using?

I think that this should put me solidly over the 100k wall I was running up against before :)

I'll post my app_info over on the other thread so I don't clog this thread up with gpu info ;)

Give me a few minutes...

** EDIT- OK all set and posted :)

I can't remember seeing that KieX made any statement about 3 being better then 4. I did an investigation on my rig 10 days ago and posted it somewhere here. In short with 3 it reports every 2:18 and with 4 every 2:07 so a slight advantage with 4. It might be different if you use the rig- I did the test with absolutely no programs open.
I did post something like that a while back. Was certainly the case for me, 4 WU just wasn't giving me any good returns. But IIRC your CPU was over 1GHz faster, and your GPU at least 100MHz faster. I guess that your extra clocks made that 4th WU work whereas it was a no-go for me. :toast:

Well guys I am sorry for my lack of pressence in the thread but I had three loved ones pass on me in a three day time span, two were on thanksgiving day and it has really gotten me tore up. I will put my 6950's on tomorrow since the WU's are back up and see what I can bring back. Thanks for the support!
Sorry to hear that. Take care, stay strong.

All three GPUs are installed, and I'm configuring them now :toast:

I like what I see. Was getting about 90K with three, so with a faster CPU you might be getting into 100's? Be interesting to see.

I was consistently pulling about 35k with the one GPU. Scaling that up to three WUs and compensating from the loss of most of the CPU (to feeding the GPUs) I think I should be right at 100k. At least I hope so. Then with the other i7s and everything else, I think I could reasonably count on ~150-155k/day :toast:

That's my territory. But not for long ;)

My planned vacations are a no-go because taxman has taken a little too much off. So might as well use a fraction of those savings for a computer to take with me back to Spain in Jan.

I'm sorry to hear that you vacation had to be scuttled :(

Are you not taking the SR-2 back, or is this something else that you're adding? What sort of system are you looking at?

No worries. If I can get a job when I come back to UK next year I'll be able to travel in smaller breaks like I did this year. I try my best to make all circumstances play out well for me so one plan hits the bucket, a few others will take it's place :laugh: Driving license is the priority now. Must be the only petrol-head without one :shadedshu

New build. SR-2 I'll keep in London. It's expensive, but at least it's a devil I know. My sister has binned the electricity bills so it's not easy for me to work out the costs, and the fact she's had fuses blow with hair dryers it doesn't bode well for a stable cruncher with that 1970's electricity installation.

Yeah, he's just faking being a human like the rest of us, making us feel better. ;) :laugh:
Seriously, I need to get another rig going!
Well, these HD7770s do great PPD for their cost ;)
Hard to go wrong with a ~$100-$120 card that does 30k+ PPD properly configured ;)

Indeed. Doing some quick estimates, the three I have should be pulling just about 100k PPD :)

And you can probably find one cheap for sub-$100 if you look :toast:

I will soon. Trying to save up for a car to get from point A to point B as my "toy" as I call it is just too much of a drinker :roll:

So that's my priority, but I will look into that soon. I'll need a video card for that rig anyways, just going to be using a X300 at least so that it can crunch on the CPU at first.

Well, good luck. I understand that cars can be expensive.

Half way through the day and already over 65k points :D

Yep CP try the title pawn places! I seen many small 4Cyl cars there for around like 600-1000$ in decent condition.

Well, good luck. I understand that cars can be expensive.

Half way through the day and already over 65k points :D

Very nice! :toast:

I tried to make some changes to mine last night to try and work through the GFAM error issue and it went haywire :banghead:

ended up having to reinstall w/o the app_info file to get everything running again this am and my WCG results are a complete mess. :(

Going to run w/o the app_info file for a few days to clear out the mess and likely try again over the weekend....

Wow, that's awesome! You're really going well, congrats! :toast:

Thanks guys :toast:
It's fun seeing what can be done with not a lot of HW these days :)

I saw that your results were really down this morning. At least it's just something temporary and you didn't lose a rig.
I think with the issues you've been having, I'll just keep the app_info file I have. At least it works reliably.

Engineering rule #1 if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Unfortunately in my case with the GFAM problem it wasn't good enough to just leave alone :shadedshu

May do some swapping around and put the 7870 in the FX-6100 rig with an app_info setup for HCC only (CPU and GPU) and leave the 8 core rigs alone to do their work but will need to locate a decent gpu for my main rig first. Need to think about it some more as Christmas is coming and money is getting tight :eek:

Looks like my ASUS A8N-E is probably toast. I really don't think the original hard drive was the issue (I am tossing it anyway due to bad sectors) as the machine was unstable over the weekend, BOINC would run but never got any work or said I was active, Teamviewer had frozen and when I rebooted it dropped into shell with the same exact disk timeout error or whatever it was. Moved the HDD to another computer, booted up fine. Moved all parts to my last spare 939 board (ECS NFORCE4-A939) and it booted fine. I'm reformatting it though as BOINC still doesn't work right and Ubuntu is silly in that the files for anything you install are owned by root and to actually remove a program (uninstalling it from USC leaves all the files there because they are owned by root lol) you have to open a terminal and sudo rm -rf every file or directory pertaining to BOINC.

Ehh, my thought is if it isn't broke, make it better. If it is broke, fix it.

I'm sorry to hear that you've lost another piece of equipment. I guess that's the danger to using older stuff? :(

Eh, I'm not too worried about the vintage stuff. As long as I don't lose another GeForce or a Phenom II system for a while, I'll probably be fine. If anything, it's reducing the clutter in my office and leaves room for newer, tremendously better systems.
