Good work Norton!
I've been negotiating with KieX and I'm going to be sponsoring his double-HD7970 rig at least for a month or two. I can't afford to run it indefinitely, but it's a good solution to buying more hardware of my own, and keeps a lot of power going. The plan is that we'd switch things over on Tuesday, so I may be able to (briefly) manage nearly 600k/day
Me so jelly
Damn I have a GPU fan making noise, sure its a bearing
Have to go to town, look at it more later today.
I feel your pain broseph
I've gotta shut down a little later today due to some issues with my sound card. I'm not sure what's going on, but it keeps going out, it stops working, have to constantly uninstall and reinstall drivers. It won't work a day straight now.
Maybe it's Win 8, but I think it's dying.... Likely I'll be going back to onboard for a while. :shadedshu
Great plan and thx to both of you for working it out.
I will be traveling for some time (extending the GPU time left) and despite my rigs run practical without errors history tells that they start acting up when I'm in the airport.
I will leave my mayor rigs on-line until my rig-sitter no longer can solve whatever problem with a restart.
I will in advance congratulate KieX with his 50M and ION with his cherry pie
Ahh technology. I don't think I have ever had a PC that just worked without giving me problems...
Guys, your WCG sig-pics don't work.
I also noticed that.
I've successfully moved the i7-920/3xHD7770 system to a friend's room and he says that he can't even notice the additional noise. Success
I'm going to see about relocating the i3-HD7950 as well--or maybe one of the i7s
1- you cannot use that domain to host your sig as it stands. You can ask W1zzard via PM to add the domain to the safe list and he will consider your request. Thats what I did, and he added the site that hosts my sig to the 'whitelist'
2- I notice that the sig is a gif. If its animated, its a no go. Signatures cannot be animated- even WCG ones. My one and only infraction came from using an animated gif WCG Sig a few years ago, If its non animated, its not an issue.
Thanks! The original one was a gif (the one that should be visible now) but its not animated so it's all good. The sig wasn't working and had a notice saying to change it to blah blah blah so ya. It works now for some reason so w/e
I suggest using Free-DC or boincstats.com for the sig-pic with stats.
But this one looks pretty when it's working...
I was gone for the weekend and being about 5 hours from home i didn't feel comfortable leaving the rigs crunching, So my production was down. I am now back and they are up and running. I'm hoping to see 75k ppd.
Once i get a better case and psu for x2 cruncher i will be upgrading the CPU to a 6 core if the motherboard supports it.
One of my remote rigs is locking up with BSOD's (page faults)
It's the Julia rig with the 6870 so I put the 6870 into the Trish rig for now and will need to find out what's causing the trouble on this one
I'll be taking it home today to see what happened but I may just go ahead and strip everything out of it and setup the X58/980X/GTX 670 folder rig in this case and call it a day..... quite a worthwhile upgrade from an 880G/1045T rig imho
*UPDATE- swapped out the ram last night and it ran until early afternoon w/o errors or BSOD's so I put the GTX 670 in it and am going to let the rig crunch on cpu and single gpu wu's until the end of the challenge. The 670 takes just over 10 minutes to finish a gpu wu... about equal to a 6870.
I am finally moving to an ssd. I have had the ssd for a month or two as a game drive but I think it is time to put windows on it. I have not really looked into it yet, but how do you guys manage boinc with an ssd? I am assuming I install and tell it to put everything on my secondary 500gb hdd and that would be it.
Yeah, I never installed anything regarding BOINC on my SSD.
I have been using two Vertex 4 256GB in Raid 0 for about three months now on my main rig with the OS and BOINC installed. No problems to report at this time...
I did not see any life lost due to BOINC when I broken my array, flashed the firmware to the drives and installed Win8. I was surprised myself. However, I have since moved BOINC to the storage drive.
Just picked up a Phenom 9150e quad. Should I use it or a Athlon II 240?
I'd say they should be roughly equal for BOINC, but that for anything else the AIIX2 would deliver a much better experience.
Hmmm Yea, I may just turn around and flip it on ebay for something else. Thanks ION!
