WCG 13th Birthday Crunching Challenge! (11/16- 11/22/2017)*
*note starts 11/16 at 0:00 UT (11/15 at 7pm eastern time)



Join us to crunch/fold and even get a chance to win some cool stuff!!!


Welcome to the WCG 13th Birthday Challenge!
Seti.Germany
has opened a Team challenge at WCG and it's time for TPU to bring it on and compete in this challenge. All hands on deck folks- We need those cpu's crunching for TPU

Link to the official Challenge results:
WCG 13th Birthday Crunching Challenge! (11/16- 11/22/2017)

https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/challenge/viewTeamChallenge.do?challengeId=8617

FYI- SETI.Germany has their own challenge stats setup here (updated frequently):
https://www.seti-germany.de/wcg/1_en_Welcome.html

These challenges are setup to show our continued support of the important work done by the World Community Grid and Folding@Home to help the research effort on cancer and other diseases.


The plan:

Join in on some friendly competition between WCG Teams as well as within our TPU Teams and hopefully get our fellow TPU'ers to join in. :)

AND

Fellow TPU members and WCG crunchers are invited to join our Team to heat up some silicon for a good cause, hang out, have a little fun, and even get a chance to win some nice prizes*
* some restrictions apply- see prize post below




How to join:
* note- This Challenge is for WCG Team crunching. However, we work closely with the TPU folding Team and we will be sharing some of the prizes offered with active TPU folders- If you have a Radeon 7850/GeForce 660Ti or better gpu and want to try folding then you are welcome to do that. ;)

For crunching....
Follow this link to register and join our Team:

*Note on Challenge prizes. Our prizes are donated by WCG-TPU Team members "By Cruncher's for Crunchers" for the purpose of assisting the Team to continue to maintain our rigs, grow our membership (or our crunching farms), and to promote the good work of crunching in general.

chips - 2 x QA92 Engineering Samples for the 2687W [v1] cpu
coolers - 2 x Noctua NH-D14
* Available to a dedicated cruncher see details below for eligibility requirements (USA members only due to shipping constraints)

Hardware Prizes (US only unless specified)
- Gamdias Hermes E1 Combo (mech kb & gaming mouse) - donated by @sneekypeet
More to come....


Prizes (available worldwide):

- 2x $25 paypal gifts donated by @NastyHabits
- 1x $25 paypal gifts donated by @Bow
- 1x $25 paypal gifts donated by @stinger608


Additional donations are welcome


Requirements/terms to qualify for a prize:
* in order for your name to be drawn- you will need to be an active member of this forum also (we will draw according to forum name so please post if WCG name is different)
- Be an active member of the TPU crunching and/or folding Team prior to 11/10/2017
- Participate* for the duration of the WCG 13th Birthday Challenge
- Earn a minimum of 5000 BOINC points during the challenge
* Daily ppd participation is expected- late comers can be added on a case by case basis
Special Requirements for the Grand Prize (a separate drawing will be held requiring Opt-in)
- Reserved for active members with total points in the Team Top 100
- Be ranked in the Team Top 40 for the duration of the challenge
- Winner will need to state that they will crunch for TPU for a minimum of 6 months with the combo



How Random Winners Will be Drawn (see below):
To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:
Originally Posted by The System
Member 1: This member creates a list of all qualified participants usernames. This list is sent to Member 2.
Member 2: Using the list of names, Member 2 will assign each entrant a unique number. A list of the usernames with the unique numbers is sent back to Person 1. The list of just the random numbers is sent to Member 3.
Member 3: Member 3 has a list of just numbers. They use Random.Org or whatever random system to select which number wins a given prize. The list of winning numbers and the associated prize is then sent back to Member 1.
Member 1: Using the lists, Member 1 ‘decodes’ the winning numbers into the winning usernames and posts the results.
The lists are sent as Private Messages through the forum. This establishes an electronic record of everything while also preventing alterations of lists after the drawing.
When the winning usernames are posted by Member 1, Member 2 can verify that the number belongs to the correct username and Member 3 verifies that the number was actually pulled as a winner.
The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.
My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.
If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.

Note(s):
- If for some reason you cannot participate at the start of the Challenge you may still qualify for the prizes, PM me to discuss your situation and we'll make those decisions on an individual basis ;)

Fantastic donation, many thanks @XZero450 :rockout::rockout::rockout:

Count me in for that, would go great with my other xeon crunchers.

Sorry don't have anything to donate this time, but after some power outages early this week I'm back to full speed for the challenge.

Wish I could get the HTPC crunching. It runs for about 20 - 30 min then BSOD. No OC on the system and temps @ 100% hit 90 Celsius. Gonna work on it tomorrow.

Have the HTPC going stable 6 threads. Nice when you wake up at 4AM and can do what you want....without making much noise.

PM me to discuss if you are out of the stated shipping area for a certain prize and want to try to get on the list.

Right as everything began I got sick. :cry:

Better late than never I guess. On a bright note, I'm getting the BIOS updated on the 3820 system so I can actually get it to overclock. I had to turn it off because the attic is getting too cold for the AIO cooler and I brought it back downstairs. I need to find a good place in the house that stays relatively cool for it though because it's going to heat my office right up if it stays in here with the 3930k.

...and that's one nice grand prize. :pimp:

Sounds like you need to clock it higher so the AIO doesn't freeze. :D
