Thx guys its fired up.
Do you guys think I could get my i3 2130m and i7 4770k on Linux and spooled up in time for the challenge? I would be cutting it close.
Best place to see your output is here:
Also, make sure the "make hosts visible" or "show hosts" option* is enabled in your WCG setting
* forgot exact name of the option atm
Well, they wouldn't be at full power by the beginning, but I think so
I am doing it with the i3. It only gets about 1.2k on windows anyways.
My X2 550 is a dedicated cruncher now. Performance/watt as an overall system isn't very good, but it's still science (and my room is much warmer now).
(I meant whether or not the 965 was worth it. It just depends. The X2 is only good for 2000-3000 ppd)
That seems low. My dedicated i3s get about 1.6-1.8k PPD on Windows. The one I use as a gamer gets less, obviously. My Core 2 T9600 is a 2.8GHz C2D and it gets about 1.1k on Windows....
2.2ghz sandy bridge i3 2 cores 4 threads. Running at 100%. Its a laptop cpu so I didn't think much of it. Maybe Linux will substantially increase production.
And if any of the newer members are interested, we have our own WCG sub channel in the TPU team speak channel. Time zones can get crazy since we are all around the world.
Download ts3 here.
Click "Connections" in the top left hand corner. A little menu will pop out. In the server address put "ts21.gamerservers.com:9207" and type in a desired name; leave the server password blank.
Join desired subchannel(WCG Channel)
Ohhh, my i3s are the 3.1GHz desktop ones...
Add a $10 Google Play Gift Card to the prize pool. (US Only because I think that's a limitation of these cards).
It's "show hosts"
For those wandering - an exact location, showing the full interface and the exact section opened where to find it:
P.S. is it just me or is TPU forum having major hiccups?
Thanks! was on my work laptop and MS Paint sucks to use in Windows XP
What kind of hiccups?
Loads slowly. And never finishes loading completely.
I have been having a couple of issues today on TPU as well.
Can you unlock it to a X4 B55? What mobo do you have?
Alright guys I am hoping to at the very least have my 2 main crunchers fired back up either sunday or Monday. I maybe a day or so late on the beginning of the challenge but I am trying to lend the team a hand.
i will put my X4 9600B and maybe the Xeon E3-1275v2 to contribution (WCG name same to TPU name)
Great, and welcome!
24 hours to go before the start of the challenge!
Just idled the folding on my 7970 until the end of the challenge.... sorry Buck
Starting to throw rigs together now. Should have everything up to speed by tomorrow night. Coming for Chery Pie again Kai!~
My ppd are down for some reason???have not changed anything except running just one project now, FAAH. How much disc space should I be using?
I have another i7-920 coming tomorrow, and if I can convince it to run on my spare 300w PSU then it'll be up---if not, I'll temporarily pull down the C2Q.
And since I've switched back to FAAH, PPD should be up too
I've run out of PSU's as well. Can't get the X4 B50 running or the 9850 BE.
I think I have a spare that I can pick up when I go home next, and if not, I can always spick up some locally for cheap, but there's only so much that I can fit into the dorm room
This is gonna be AWESOME!!!!
I love all the TPU-ers coming on board with us!!
Thanks everybody!! Together we can make some noise!!!!
