So, currently I'm running the following the following cpu's to crunch: Three 5950x's, a 5600g a 10850k and an old 3rd gen i7 mobile cpu, but I can't remember which specific chip. Not really doing any gpu work units. I'm averaging 108k points. Does this sound right or does it seem a bit on the low side for the cpu's I'm running?

If you get 1000 points/day per thread then all is good, GPU work excluded but as you say you don’t get any :D

At 1000 points per day, I should be averaging 128k per day. So I'm underperforming. Troubleshooting tips?

If you go for points then make four different profiles and run OPN in one, MCM in a second and a mix of the rest in the last two. Assign the four profiles the your rigs, let them run for 2 weeks and calculate points/hour for the different projects/OS/CPU and the go for the best. OR look at your points and avoid the worst projects.

Edit: @PaulieG did you make the calculation?
This is mine for the past two (three) days

06/25/2021 is just one OPN on my 3900X, stock, Linux, the others a mix of 2700X and 3900X and a tiny bit of a Intel 1.70 GHz Pentium, Win10.
Pure OPN is 1240 points/thread, the two other a more respectable 3421 and 2781 points. I'm sure that you are doing better than 1000/thread with your arsenal of CPUs.

Disclaimer: I'm on oxycodone after a bicycle crash and a broken femur so the head is working less than 100% and the results could be off.

I hope that you are alright @mstenholm!! So annoyed with myself I never came in sooner and caught up with the later posts :(

I used to always run WCG with service installation... So no GPU work.

I recently decided to test the waters with a GPU cruncher on a single rig. I've been trying to configure my setup. I've modified my WCG Web preferences to allow for Nvidia GPU work and Beta work for OPNG. I also created a config file for 8 concurrent jobs (8 max /.125 gpu /1 cpu) in the C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.worldcommunitygrid.org folder.

I have only seen just a few (~2/3) GPU work units come through?? They ran quickly, completed and dropped off. I'm not sure if some of my settings may be off but I like to try and get more GPU work running on this setup (see System Specs) for testing purposes and to build up my knowledge base regarding GPU crunching.

@PolRoger , GPU units are hit and miss, and judging by the numbers that people are getting, it's more miss than hit lately.

@PolRoger since you already got a few OPNG units we know that your setup is correct. The problem that we all have is that there are limited supply. I tried three days in a row not to receive a single one in the 4-6 hours that particular PC was on. The other two got around 50-60/day in the same periode. So just leave it at current setting and check again tomorrow.

Looking at my stats for the day, I've had a total of 5, not massively high scorers either, about 600 to no more than 700 points each

Anyone knows if an HD7850 is still good for GPU units? I think it has OpenCL1.2 support but I don't know what the GPU work units require.

If it has 1.2 support it should be good. Try to re-start WCG and read the top 5-15 lines here (Shift+Ctrl+E). If it has 1.2 it will tell and show some GFlops numbers for your GPU. Be aware that there are only a very limited number around.

I have seen for some days now that Free-DC shows a fair amount less points than my WCG stats.
I have 4 PC's running. Do I need to somehow manually assign additional PC's to the TPU team.

Hey guys and gals, I was just wondering.... Does anyone have/use an Asus Strix B450-F Gaming board at all for their crunchers or main rig?? I've had a few looks into these and they seem to be pretty decent boards from what I understand... Just wondering if anyone is having a good/bad/meh experience with one :)

Reason for asking is simple, I'm looking to grab one to put in the giveaway for the team.... I'd like it to be something decent, don't want to give away any sort of crap regardless :)

Free-DC evaluate stats based on BOINC points system (or RAC).
WCG has its own system, as the "UD grid device agent" had different points system.

But it all comes down to 1 BOINC point = 7 WGC points. :cool:

Setting up a new dedicated system for WCG/maybe F@H. For what we do, W10 Home or Pro? I'm expecting to use remote access eventually.
I always use Google Chrome remote access now, it's good for a pop in , you may prefer your way though I think home supports remoting in though, for user help purposes.

I use Pro. Don't know if it really matters though. What will the new system contain (components)?

If you're willing to ride the learning curve, maybe try Linux? Otherwise W10 Pro for RDP.

On Win you can always use FREEware program to prevent overheating, like Tthrottle.

On Linux, you would have to program it.
