    Well, I wish I had the time to lurk around there--TPU is pretty much all I have time for :ohwell:

    But I'd love to see another GPU-based project--then I'd feel better about spending all of this money on GPUs :)

    Why do they say that we don't need to know about it?

    Deals may fall through; I'd say that's the number 1 reason. I don't know what's the process WCG follows to accept a project but surely there should be some that didn't come to fruition.

    That makes sense--I'd assume that their requirements are very strenuous. I'm sure they have their reasons--but I hope they put out a new project for us soon :)

    Dammit. Just noticed that the network connection of my GPU cruncher was down for who knows how long :(

    It happens--my best folder got left with no internet access for a while when I forgot to plug the cable back in :(

    Help me choose a cooler

    So, I've got a much longer cooler list to choose from right now. I selected a few candidates I liked from the list. Could You help me choose the best one? (or maybe I should post a dedicated thread Overclocking & Cooling forum instead? If so, gonna ask a mod to move it)

    The list, sorted from cheapest to most expensive, relative price in the "comment" field:

    • ZALMAN CNPS11X /* x1.0 */
    • ZALMAN CNPS14X /* x1.29 */
    • THERMALTAKE NiC C5 /* x1.59 */
    • CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series H55 /* x1.59 */
    • CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series H60 /* x1.72 */
    • THERMALTAKE Frio OCK /* x1.77 */
    • ZALMAN LQ310 /* x2.14 */


    P.S My new mobo is arriving in TWO days! Weeee~!

    Is the 2nd Corsair an H70? You listed both as H60's... If so, I would say go with the H70 (has a thicker radiator) or the Tt Frio OCK. I have an H70 and it kept an i7-980X nice and cool at 4.1Ghz ;)

    *Note- have no idea on the performance of the Zalman cooler?

    whoops!
    the cheaper one is H55 and the other is H60 (fix'd in the post, too)
    The H70 was among those in the list, too. But a bit expensive - relative cost @ x2.07
    Should I clean my pockets even more and get the H70, or settle with a H60?

    :rockout: I have a Sapphire HD 7970 coming :rockout:
    When I get it I will have a Sapphire HD 6950 twin cooler card for sale. $125.00 shipped.

    iirc the H60 is the square one, which is much easier to install than the round one (H70) performance difference would be 2-3C (100% load, fans at full speed)... I would say go with the H60 for the easier install and better price ;)

    It took 30 minutes to upload all the WUs so I'm getting a big boost today :D I was wondering why hadn't I hit 180K already :shadedshu

    Just heard about what happened in Boston. My thoughts and prayers goes to all the victims.

    Any TPU cruncher live in Boston?

    Not that I know of but some may live close.... Boston is about 150 miles from me.

    AFAIK they're not sure if it was a foreign or domestic terrorist attack :shadedshu

    Switched my rigs over to folding for the chimp challenge so my numbers will be down for a bit.

    WCG issue:

    Okay, so I noticed that one of my machines was not crunching. It's status says "Computation is suspended" . I have never had this problem before, I try updating the project and detach/reattach, but nothing worked. It did download new jobs (threads) but they are still in a suspending status. :wtf: How do I fix this?

    Thank you,

    T77-

    Check your computing preferences and make sure you allow computation while computer is in use, etc. Sorry if that doesn't help.

    In BOINC, go to Advanced View, then Activity, then Run Always. That should fix it.

    Sounds like your rig is suspended due to activity

    Check your "computing preferences" settings to make sure it's to run while computer is in use

    Does anyone know of a way to turn off CPU project downloads? I have a bunch in all of my queues, but they all expire since I only run the GPU ones.

    Under Device Manager -> Device Profiles -> "Allow research to run on my CPU: No"

    (On the WCG site under My Grid)

    The work will just expire and drop off as the deadlines are reached.... just a bit better than aborting them (won't affect your WCG account much in either case)

    That will just stop you from getting more CPU WUs but the ones already in your queue won't go until finished or expired.

    Yep! that fix it :)

    But I don't understand how the activity changed from "Run always" to Suspend? I run this rig 24/7 and never touched the BOINC settings (other then the work buffer/ cpu usage). So weird.

    Thanks for the help Team!!

    I have no idea what would have caused that--computers do strange things sometimes :p
