WCG loves CPU speed
I finally got my PPD over 1000. My farm consists of my 3.1ghz kuma, my 1.73ghz celeron-m in my laptop, my 750mhz p3 and my mom's sempron 3000+. They're all at 100% except the laptop which runs at 60%.
that's a good way to start. I assume you run the laptop at less usage because of the heat?
Yeah... I saw it at 86c once at 100%. Desktops can run full blast because of the better coolers no problem... espically mine since I have an aftermarket cooler. That laptop has a dinky copper square thing... it's like a 7900GT cooler or something. I don't understand how it gets so hot when it's a 27 watt processor though...
I ordered 2 wireless network cards cause I am setting up a wireless network at home soon. I have a new wireless router, and I am putting my P3 and mom's computer on wireless. Less wires, less hastle... my gaming computer is still going to be on wired though. Funk gaming on wireless.
yeah lappyes just get hot because of the lack of cooling man. Well good luck setting up the network
My X31 only gets to about 65C, even when running WCG at 100%. I don't consider this to be too hot, anything under 75C is perfectly reasonable for me so I run it at 100% except when I'm on battery or taking it somewhere.
well I quietly joined up a few weeks ago with my q9650, so far I've contributed-

Advance congrats on your first 100k
Excellent work BarbaricSoul! We usually go by BOINC points here, which are WCG points/ 7, meaning that you have 14072 BOINC points. BOINC points are those reported by the BOINC manager. You should be able to get almost 2K (BOINC) points per day (PPD), I can get about 1.5-1.7K on my Q9400 on a good day (stock clocks). Welcome to the team!
EDIT: With that OC, over 2K PPD shouldn't be hard
I'm running stock right now, my PSU doesn't have enough ass for the SLI'ed GTX's and the system OC'ed. Looking to upgrade that real soon. But I have crunched with a 4ghz OC, oh the points were rolling in.
Are you running Folding@home on those 280s? Between the two of them 15K PPD wouldn't be out of reach (and possibly higher, maybe even 17-18K)
TBH, I'm thinking about pulling one of the 280's so I can put my CPU back to 3.8 for better crunching. Playing crysis at 1920*1200 with custon graphics mods and getting 40-50 fps is sweet, but I've already played though the single player with both 280's. So now I don't need to push my PSU like that as all other games I play are maxed by a single 280.
ION, that's not bad at all for a laptop temp wise. I've seen a few that run hotter.
im being a total n00b but wat ppd u guys talking about
BOINC PPD. I get about 2-2.5K BOINC PPD, but usually 14-18K WCG PPD. WCG "credits" are 7x BOINC points.
Did you see this post, i typed this up for you when you first joined It has mostly everything you need to know

What's happening? Our output is falling again
Still, 1.67 million is a lot of points
Hm... I can pass 15.5 hours of Linpack but it seems that my pc wants to randomly reboot itself. I've never seen it happen, but I left utorrent running one night and I went to check it when I got up and it wasn't there... when I fired it back up, the torrents said "checking".
I had issues like that and it was my waterblock or something. I removed the watercooling and everything was fine. It's like it only shorted when it wanted to
my x58 is out to MSI for RMA... no crunching here since tuesday..
I'll be back though! crunching is fun.
I left my computer to crunch while I was at a bar with friends yesterday and it would not wake from the blank screen when I got back. I have no suspend enabled in Bios or OS. Just blank screen after two hours as set in control panel/power settings/high performance. I just could not wake it up.
Had to hold the power button to force a shut down. Everything continued like normal upon boot.
Anybody know what happened? Never happened before WCG.
BTW sorry to hijack thread.
Not even OC'ed BTW
that happens to my E1200 and Maximus IIF Rig running Vista 64, ive been trying to figure it out. It will be fine as long as im actively using it but once I switch to my other rig and go back to it after an hour or so it does that.
Only cure is reboot.
had that problem with one of my rigs but using XP
I upped my ram voltage and problem solved
any screensavers active?
