Can i run BOINC on my gpu (9800gx2) ?
It looks like the wcg server is down.
I dont know, but somebody told me ones to download work for 4 days ahead of time, so im still crunching on
Question, notice there is a human proteome folding project. It has a computation error. All of them do the same, how can I stop from connecting to projects like these? if its going to error out, might as well not do them at all...
You can.. but it would be better to put it folding. Our folding teams need our gpu's as much as we need there CPU's. Please everyone support both teams as much as possible! Thank you!
CPU = best for Crunching
GPU = best for Folding
Oh and I crunch and fold.
OK, I'm back from vacation. One of my i7's is now up and running. The second i7 will be another day or 2.
welcome back dude. HOw did it go?
I'd tell you but the server is down! If someone hasn't given you the answer from memory before the server comes up then I'll give it my best try. I believe you do it from your World Community Grid member page by selecting My Projects.
Hey CP, when the project comes back up, go to your my grid page. In device profiles, uncheck the human proteome project, then you will not get any more wu's from that project. It has always been buggy, especially with 64 bit.
CP I'd already unchecked the human proteome project but I wasn't sure where I did it.
thanks guys, i'll go do that now
I am finally getting my RMA back on Friday as per a UPS notice from Intel. It took a couple of "pissed off" inquiries to Intel's tech support both telephonic and on their forum to expedite the process:shadedshu. I sent it in on 25 Jun, they received it the next day and when I called last week to check on the status I got asked if "I already sent in the bad CPU" Basically the repair facility and Intel's tech support folks are not on the same bandwidth All in all it was a good RMA. Hopefully I will get compensated by them sending me a D0 stepping
I have two 64-bit computers doing HPF and 553 results (gold badge) have been returned. No project has yet got an error accross my three computers.
From what I'm seeing, any errors at all means your computer is not stable. Lower overclocks or run at stock (like me) to get rid of them.
How do I download more projects (within WCG)?
This sucker puts my CPU through hell... ramps my CPU temp to 61C, my VRMs are nearing 80C... ;-\
all 4 cores @ 100%... hmm... DFI needs better cooling on their VRMs n such.
I'll cross my fingers, and hope you get that DO. For WCG, the DO's are awesome for undervolting. I can run one of my DO's at 3.65ghz on 1.0v. Talk about efficient crunching!!
The CPU temps can be explained by the stock cooler. It's simply a useless piece of crap. For the VRM's, just put a fan over them, and temps will drop at least 10c.
I am rigging my old cooling system back up and bringing my PII back down to 3.1 @ 1.0V for F@H using the on-board BIOS Profiles. Waiting for my DK to come in.. although UPS says Monday now.. ;-(
Also, my stock cooler is lapped a bit... ;-) Revealing a little bit of the heatpipes, home made HDT I guess.. lol
Advanced -> Preferences...
"Network Usage" tab -> Under "General Options," change "Additional Work Buffer"
I set it to 2.00.
You can also change this online via Device Profiles. Once you apply the change online, you'll have to wait about half an hour then go to that same dialog (Preferences) and click "Clear" at the top. It will download the settings from the web.
Well, a turd is still a turd, no matter what you do to it. I wish both AMD and Intel would improve stock cooling, even just a little. Seems stupid to sell such an expensive piece of silicon with a piece of aluminum foil to cool it.
Pretty sure I want more than this going on... how do I get more? Some people have like 50 of these and I only have 3...
I told you on this post (increase amount of work to get):
Sempron LE-1250 isn't a high volume processor so even if you set it to two days, it might only cache eight tasks (6 hours per task, four tasks a day, two days). You won't see a lot of tasks there unless you got lots of cores.
lol, yeah. Well, I stabilized it at the OC I had it at... the WCG really beats the crap out of the RAM... my OCZ Reapers are so hot that I can't even touch them for more than a second before it "burns". the heatpipes on the thing are also the same way... eesh....
I just run a 240mm fan suspended over my tech station. Keeps everything nice and cool. My DDR3 1866 Reapers are only warm to the touch with WCG at 70%.
Thanks for that. Well I got 3GHz on it so it'll be alrgiht. What if I got a dual socket LGA1366 board and stuck 2 i7 975 extremes in? or quad socket F board chalked full of quad core opertons
Your wallet would be about $4000 lighter. Both platforms are 16 cores and push well over 300w power consumption.
While I agree with you Paulie that the stock hsf's are crap, they do what they're designed for. I ran my i7 at stock with ht and turbo enabled for about a week crunching 24/7 before getting the 1366 bracket for my TRUE. Never did I see temps go over 75C. If they gave out better hsf's, it would just drive the price up more. It's only people like us that would be willing to pay more for it.
