Many thanks to manofthem for sending me a CrossfireX bridge which arrived today. Now to get CrossfireX working between a 7970 and 7950 without my computer freezing after 5 minutes of 3D activity. I'm bringing my former main 3770K rig back home to further troubleshoot the !@#$ out of my Haswell rig, as I was up until 5AM installing Win7 on a terribly slow 250GB drive (scores 3.3 in WEI), only to find my problem unresolved. I'm leaning towards a hardware problem but I won't know until I swap PSUs and stuff.

Oh, I was happy to help. After all, we are close neighbors ;)
Besides, I can just call in a favor next time I'm on the west coast and need a place to sleep :laugh: :roll: :D J/K :nutkick:

SN2S work flowing again- more to come

Just saw this update on the WCG site (see below) and have seen the work units popping up on my rigs :)

Looks like if all goes well with this initial batch we may have a strong 3rd project available for our rigs :toast:


Re: Quiet (Too Quiet) on the SN2S Front

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Greetings again,

Sorry to leave everyone on the edge of how much work and why is it still intermittant. So let me fix that :)

We have some work from the researchers, by some I mean that if we were to run this project at FULL weight, meaning i would get about 45% of the grid, then the work would last only 3 weeks. So, we have put this at a lower weight than FA@H, but if you have only SN2S selected, then you should be able to get work. If you have both, then the odds of you getting SN2S over the FAAH work would be about 1:20 ratio if not worse, since those who only have sn2s would pull from the feeder first.

Why is it still intermittant, because there is a larger pool of work units in the works and we hope to have those before this smaller group runs out. By leaving it intermittant it was our hopes that the members hopes (yes too many hopes in a sentence) wouldn't plan for steady work just in case the larger set of work comes after we run out. We didn't want to tease you into thinking a steady set of work would be available when we don't have our hands on the larger set of work.

Next question that will come, How much larger is the next set of work. This is an unknown right now. My personal opinion is months if not years of work. Again that is my opinion but without having our hands on the work I can not give you a certain answer.

Thanks,
-Uplinger

Got an used Asrock 970 Extreme3 for about $30 shipped. Supposedly none of the USB ports work but it has PS/2 ports so I won't need them and, hopefully, it'll come down to some bios misconfig/bad flash as with my Z77X-UP7 :D ¨:pimp: I shall know in about 10 days *crosses fingers* At most I think it'll be a fuse or something.

Well, my 2600k setup is having issues--it boots, the BOINC work doesn't auto-start, and when I try to launch the BOINC manager it sits at the "Connecting to the BOINC Client" window. Any of you Linux guys seen this before? I know usually a reboot fixes it on Windows...

I had that exact thing happen a year or so ago to a Linux and a windows rig. Searched and searched, never found a solution to it. I had to reinstall to OS to fix it. I am sure there has to be a fix but I exhausted all I could. I even completely wiped out Boinc and didn't held.

As TRWOV stated, what processes are running? Did you install BOINC through the package manager or did you use a donload from the BOINC or WCG website? What distro are you on?

Mint 15 x86_64
BOINC installed through the Software Center
what does Terminal > top shows?
There weren't any WCG processes there--just things like 'terminal' and 'init' and the like. I don't think that BOINC was there either.

I get the same thing when my internet connection is partially broken (LAN accesible and working fine, but the "great wilds" are blocked/chocked due to gateway being down)
In such cases - disable networking (or just unplug the network cable), then launch the manager. In the manager, select "network activity suspended". Reconnect the network. Manager will work then. At least, if the problem is the same.

I get the same thing when my internet connection is partially broken (LAN accesible and working fine, but the "great wilds" are blocked/chocked due to gateway being down)
In such cases - disable networking (or just unplug the network cable), then launch the manager. In the manager, select "network activity suspended". Reconnect the network. Manager will work then. At least, if the problem is the same.
That is possible--I'm running this system on a network connection bridged through my Atom setup--it has issues several times a week. I'll try that when I get home from work tonight :toast:

Well, my 2600k setup is having issues--it boots, the BOINC work doesn't auto-start, and when I try to launch the BOINC manager it sits at the "Connecting to the BOINC Client" window. Any of you Linux guys seen this before? I know usually a reboot fixes it on Windows...
Well, I don't know about running BOINC on Mint, but the same thing happens on Arch Linux by default.

The problem on Arch is that the manager requires a password to connect to the BOINC client, but there is no file in it's working
directory to provide the manager with that password, and entering the password manually doesn't work for some reason.

The password is stored in the file /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg, so to get it to work, you can either open a terminal,
cd to /var/lib/boinc/ and run boincmgr from there, or you can create a symbolic link in your home directory to the password file.
Code:
ln -s /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg   gui_rpc_auth.cfg
Then the manager should work no matter where you run it from.
If that doesn't work then check the permissions on the file, and make sure your user has read access; counter-intuitively, the owner should be your user, not the 'boinc' user.

Now, I have no idea if any of this applies to Mint, but I hope it helps. :)

Turns out that it doesn't like the network connection I had set up--when it's disconnected, everything works fine, as soon as I plug it into the ethernet, the tasks stop running and within about 30 seconds BOINC is unresponsive. It works just fine plugged into my Linksys router, however, so I'll chalk it up to not liking the funky wireless bridge.

A new machine is needed for an intern so I'll pass him one of the 2 remaining P4 and build a new PC for accounting with the X4. I haven't sold one of the 1055ts yet so I'll keep it and install into my work PC and crunch. Maybe I'll borrow a couple of cores from the X4 too. :D

Is it a buggy driver?

I don't know. The Atom bridge has behaved very oddly before, although it works fine with all of my Windows systems. And the 2600k worked fine for three weeks before problems started to show up, so I don't know. I'm just going to count on it working properly once I have a "regular" internet connection back at school.

And it's just a regular gigabit Intel connection, so it shouldn't require anything too fancy to work.

Hey guys, still on the hunt for a I7-920 D0 or C0. I will have a short FT thread later on today. I almost had one today on hardforums but he had someone offer more cash that what he was asking. Hopefully someone on here, anandtech, or Hard has one I can get along with a X58. I really want to get back into the rotation atleast getting some numbers on the board without crazy reboots.
