    So will there be a list of contendants that allows me to see exactly who I have to assassinate to win?

    Just kidding :p

    The most I can get on an overclock is 3.828 ghz, up 16%.
    crunching at 100%. Any more and CRASH!

    That's what I'm crunching at, good for temps, good for performance and not a massive stressful overclock. Just right. :)

    I've got a Hydro 70 on one of my 1090T's and that helps a lot. All of those chips can do 3.8-4ghz with no problem, the real issue is cooling and having an m/b that can handle the stress.

    Congrats! With that 1600mhz memory, it should be pretty sweet.

    Did you rely mainly on increasing the clock speed or more on the multiplier?

    Yeah, it means that you've probably returned a lot of bad wu's and the servers are making sure that you've fixed whatever problems you were having before they will send you more than one wu/core per day.

    they really don't like it when you use WCG for stress testing.

    edit - give it a day or two of sending back good wu's and you'll be fine.

    Good call. Just recently noticed I returned about 10 Wu's that errored.

    Seems as though my main rig doesn't like my preferences and prefers to crunch at a 24/7 rate no matter how I change it :laugh:

    Good luck, everyone! This will be a fun contest, and one where everyone wins (well, sort of :p)

    Good luck to all participants!

    I'll get round to making a list of participants and scores at some point for tomorrow and update the OP with it.

    OP Updated! I'll refresh the scores on a weekly basis (it's a time thing ;))


    erasure has already qualified for the Prize 1 Draw with a whopping 51K

    But there is a very nice battle to reach the 28K mark of the Prize 2 Draw. Can they reach the 50K before the contest end? Plenty of time still to get crunching!

    If I've missed anyone, please PM me :toast:
