I just installed this and it's very exciting. Hopefully I can contribute to the #'s!
Thanks, glad to have you
my i7 at 4.3 Ghz put out about 4k PPD on dc stats. You bet you'll help out
Thanks and welcome aboard bro.
only thing that concerns me is constant temp of 70c for hours on end..
but ill get it tweaked don't worry
bro normal temps on i7 is 80º and under. 90ºc and under is still fine, but I don't feel comofortable running over 80ºc. during my best wprime run at 4650 Mhz, I hit 99ºc on the run. These things have a much higher temp. threshold than other CPU's. 70ºc is 100% fine with this CPU.
Ok cool. I don't care if this blows up (i dont want it too) but this is my 1st i7 rig so its basicaly the guinea pig.
why do all the tasks say "cpu benchmarks" forgive my nubness
It won't blow up trust me
Got a screenshot of what you are trying to describe?
nevermind i figured it out. was just the top 4 tasks because i clicked cpu bench...
I try to run a balance of speed and good temps. What I've found on most of my i7 rigs is that 3.8ghz usually provides the best combination of temps/speed and points. All of my i7's stay under 65c at 100% BOINC load.
check out this thread. this file helps your scores stabilize a lot. they submit right away.http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=102878
You are right Paul, this is with the Transformer 4 i got from you. waiting to get the new cooler when I get paid. Voltage I believe can go lower, but its stable and no risk of screwing anything up like this, so i just left it alone.
I just swapped coolers around so that I can overclock the i7, couldn't stand the default clocks .
There's my golden chip again. Why did I sell her, why? Why?
I don't know dude, but thank you, thank you, thank you
i think the problem is my case.. the radiator is outside on the back and the psu exhausts close to the top of the rad and barbs therfore causing the metal to become slightly warm affecting performance along the way.. ez fix
Sounds reasonable, but like I said 70ºc is not hot at all for an i7. Let us know how the fix goes
Just curious ~ but what are your temps? I would suspect that they are relatively low.
Pretty much, this cooler is not the greatest on i7
shevanel, if you have HT disabled, enable it, you will then get almost twice as much work done and almost 2x the points.
I am headin out for my annual vacation (30 days) to Bangalore, India. I will not have access to my comps at work..so I will not be able to update the finished WUs. I tried installing remote control app (logmein) on the comps at work so that I could remotely connect and upload finished WU. Though it worked a couple of times, I am having network account lockout issues wherein my corp account gets locked everyother day. I have to request IT to unlock it. Still not found a workaround for this..though searching.
I will have my main i7 rig crunching and folding 24/7 at stock while Im on vacation. Request u guys to notch up your production to keep the numbers up.
Have a good vacation
Wait, won't the computers upload the finished WUs whenever they download new ones? I have several computers I haven't performed the cc_config mod on, nor have I been within a mile of them in over a month, but they're still running 24/7 and they upload the finished WUs about twice a day when they download new ones
Regardless, enjoy your vacation
wait...what is this HT you speak of ? Are these any little tricks you can do to rack up points quiker?
It's the 4 extra threads on I7 processors. Theyre active.
Enjoy your vacation dusty we'll do whatever we can to keeps the numbers up
The cc config file mod works on all rigs. I was referrin to rigs at my work. The IT in Houston has blocked our Company servers from accessing WCG servers using Blue coat firewall. Reason being given: The site belongs to category: computers/education. Before that everythin was auto.no probs uploading/ downloadin WU..now I have to go around to upload/download WU!! But will do whatever I can for our team!!
