Looks great!
But, Good Lord, it's sizzling! :eek:
Mine runs at 90c average. Intel chips are strong and will run up to 105c before throttling. AMD's 62c recommended threshold is rather low in contrast.

But weirdly enough, my laptop chip here doesn't give a shit. It'll gladly take up to 97°c before throttling.

Alas, those 97 are way too achievable on my laptop. :(

Ooh! Do let us know what sort of PPD it pulls! Any idea on power consumption?

Mine runs at 90c average. Intel chips are strong and will run up to 105c before throttling. AMD's 62c recommended threshold is rather low in contrast.
Which CPU is that? See, that's just too hot for me---I insist on no more than 80C or so, except for my laptop which gets to 85C and then throttles...

My mobile A6 throttles at 95C, so I guess AMD's laptop chips can take more
heat than their desktop models. I don't like running anywhere close to 90C, though.

For comparison, my old single core Turion (undervolted) crunches at just over 50C.

I wonder what causes this difference in heat tolerance.
Maybe it's due to AMD using a High-k dielectric, while Intel uses a Low-k one? hmmm...

I believe it's because AMD uses a Silicon on Insulator (SOI) fabrication process, and has done so for about 12 years. My mobile Phenom II X920 has been fine though running in the mid-70s so honestly I don't know what the big fuss about the 62c threshold is unless my chip is slowly degrading, but I don't care that much as this laptop is almost 3 years old and rather sluggish.

AFAIK most of the issue is from where/how the temp is read- iirc cadaveca or cdawall shared some of their insight on this subject a while back.

Intel temps may be read directly from/near the processor silicon while AMD reads their temps from a different area on the chip (if read from the same area they would likely have a similar Maximum).... don't remember where I read this though :eek:

The heat is really getting to me. Its been hitting the high temps of 80f + outside and my crunchers arn't helping inside. I will persevere and crunch through it!

SInce yesterday evening, my Main rig isn't crunching, as I am now in my new house. I will start tomorrow by clearing shit around to make my setup.

Will crunch soon :D and with picture (all dust-off :p )

Ah yes, the curse of anyone crunching during the summer. At least it's cooler there--it's up in the 90s here already much of the time!

I had my overclocked Phenom II X2 crunching while I was backing up the files (former main rig). It was supposed to be a father's day present, but it tossed up a few BSODs recently (worried about my results now too). BSODs and errors on my two drives in the SMART logs. I have a sneaky suspicion it wasn't the drive's fault since both drives (in RAID) errored at the same time and.

I think it's just that time of year when we either have to back off the clocks or fire up the A/C.

I FINALLY got innernets routed to my storage room.
Time to move my 2nd box there. Which means it's going to be off for a while.
Can't wait to [not] hear the sound of its fans! :laugh:

UPDATE:
It took me quite some time, but I sort of finished it! It still needs some cooling tweaks, but I'm going to do that tomorrow.
So yeah, it's up and running again! :peace:
more info here.

Appreciation Visit by members of other BOINC Teams

Greetings fellow BOINC Crunchers. In appreciation for the wonderful work TechPowerUp is doing, three of us from other teams decided to help your BOINC Team for three days or so. You will find us under the name of Mad Matt, Fire$torm and Cruncher Pete. We will carry the subgroup [SETI.USA] after our names as that is the team that we met although some of us are now also belong to other teams. Since this is a short visit, we decided to crunch GPU work only, i.e POEM and or Distrtgen as this way we can still crunch our chosen CPU work.

Keep up the good work and as I say, keep on smiling and have a nice day...

Thank you for your contribution and assistance! :respect:

However, our Team only contributes to WCG projects AFAIK. There are a few Team members that contribute to other projects such as POEM but I don't know if the contributions are under a TPU Team listing or solo.

Other members who have been here longer may have more insight in this than I do....:eek:

I just saw the points update on Free-DC for POEM, and all I can say is wow!
Your contributions in one day were about seven times as large as mine over the last 18 months of intermittant crunching. :respect::respect::respect:
Thank you all for your amazing work! :toast:
@Norton: The Team by CPID page on Free-DC has a nice list of the projects TPU has contributed to. :toast:

I've been crunching POEM for about a month, I think. Under the TechPowerUp! team that I saw there.

It's a great project for the GPU in my A6-3500, since it's weak enough to have constant work. :D

Edit: It's also amazing that I can run it with no noticeable slowdown in most games on the A6-3500.

Are you getting any POEM work. I am not getting any work for them. I have 3 7970m GPUs just sitting idle.

Greetings fellow BOINC Crunchers. In appreciation for the wonderful work TechPowerUp is doing, three of us from other teams decided to help your BOINC Team for three days or so. You will find us under the name of Mad Matt, Fire$torm and Cruncher Pete. We will carry the subgroup [SETI.USA] after our names as that is the team that we met although some of us are now also belong to other teams. Since this is a short visit, we decided to crunch GPU work only, i.e POEM and or Distrtgen as this way we can still crunch our chosen CPU work.

Keep up the good work and as I say, keep on smiling and have a nice day...

Been a while since I've seen you around :) Hope all is well. Thank you very much for the help :toast:

Thank you for your contribution. The TechPowerUp! BOINC teams for Free Rainbow Tables and POEM@home projects are no official part of TPU though, those are teams founded by Mathew-3770K and are a sort of spin-offs (like "my" TechPowerUp! climateprediction.net team).

I just saw the points update on Free-DC for POEM, and all I can say is wow!
Your contributions in one day were about seven times as large as mine over the last 18 months of intermittant crunching. :respect::respect::respect:
Thank you all for your amazing work! :toast:
Indeed, the scores are gigantic on POEM@home, so I bet they are cosmological for Free Rainbow Tables (since the points rewarded to valid GPU results are exorbitant there :D).

POEM@home GPU WUs tend to load my HD 6670 for about 50% according to Afterburner.

Are you getting any POEM work. I am not getting any work for them. I have 3 7970m GPUs just sitting idle.
That project has got its servers down a lot lately, due to maintenance and technical issues.

The problem with POEM is that they don't have nearly enough GPU work for all. Therefore high end GPU's end up working through the allotment very quickly. Where as my HD 6530D takes 1h 20m per unit, so it doesn't get through them all before the next release.

Edit: Also, it loads my HD 6530D 100% with one WU. But it only loads my laptops Mobility 5650 at about 50% (Which is good, since it seems to be one of the hotter projects).

Ah yes, the curse of anyone crunching during the summer. At least it's cooler there--it's up in the 90s here already much of the time!


Congrats on the house! I hope you get settled in!

well, after plugging my UPS/External HDD case, did clean my rig. Totally. I had the cat litter before my office :/, so took my time, cleaned fan, case, cable, all mesh grill and filter. Now, Rig is back, crunching :). Finally, my computer is on a gigabit network instead of a N wifi xD

I'll post some picture during the week, I don't have finish everything is it will look really nice :rockout:

For the 7970m that I have it only loads them upto about 45%.
