Re: Crunching for Covid

Richard, do you know if your GPU fans are actually spinning up? I can only think that one of your fans has failed or your cooler is coming away from the card. I’ve removed a few coolers in my time - it’s worth at least visually checking it and to tighten screws where you see them. You may also spot...

Re: Crunching for Covid

Thanks Tim, Damien. Forum benefits, getting valuable tips. I had been jiggling the parameters, but reducing the power limit to 75, and max temp to 75, has proportionately reduced the Mhz from 1945 to about 1845, allowing it to stabilise. I realised the overclock was high, and previously it had been ...

Thanks Tim, I'll try again with the GPU settings. The only good side is that I'm finding GFN15 primes :lol:

Glad you're ok, Damien, even if you are expanding :lol: Re Seti, I started on it 2 Sep 2004, but later cocked it up and lost a lot of credits. I also didn't want to wake up the aliens, there's enough nasties already down here. Now we've Covid-19 aliens, but no radio frequency signals from them (yet)...

Re: Crunching for Covid

HI everybody,Hoping you are all well. I'm 12 week isolated as I'm old and vunerable, except of course I have to feed the cows etc. However so far they are symptom free, as I hope to remain. :wink: I am running Folding in the background on 3 PCs, and on 2 GPUs ( 2080ti and Titan V).

Re: Crunching for Covid

Now running Folding GPU tasks, but its only using about 20% or less GPU power.
Not sure why this - but very inefficient??
Using GPUGRID to pick the balance of GPU crunch power.
CPUs given over to Rosetta, postponing all PrimeGrid work for the foreseeable future.

HI

I have a passkey now and registered it, it seems to increase security. However nothing received today, but everything seems in order waiting for units to crunch..... here's hoping.....

Folding@home

As mentioned elsewhere, Folding is suffering from server outages and lack of work after the appeals for support.
Almost an "acceptance" rather a "denial" of service attack. :wink:

Re: My Best month on Prime Grid

Hi Tim, PPSE yields well for me on the CPU side. GFN16 and 17 LOW are also pretty fruitful. I've abandoned the GFN15 as they don't seem to qualify for any challenges. I yet to get a mega....... Hopefully we can all get the TdP badge this year. Good Luck. The 7980XE is running 18 PPSE and 1 GFN 17 Me...

My Best month on Prime Grid

Hopefully my upgrade builds to 2 extreme PCs is paying off.

Managed to do 5 new primes, and 1 wingman double check In January 20.

Hoping to bag a Mega at some point.

Hi It's a long way to the 20 year badge, but hopefully the Feb WCG challenge will see a few more credits for a very worthwhile project. I normally allocate all projects but have just specialised for the coming week's challenge. Mapping Cancer Markers 20,677,955 25,604 10:292:10:41:20 Diamond Badge (...

Re: Kill The Cancer Challenge 2020

HI

I'm running a couple of PCs on WCG Kill Cancer, and I'll put others over for the Challenge.

All my GPUs will still do the Primegrid Tour de Primes, (I'm Mega hunting) and then I'll switch cores to TdP ( also Mega hunting) for the rest of February after the WCG 7-day Challenge has completed.

Hi I'm in with my PCs running all cores and hyperthreads. 84 total threads, as it's not using the AVX instructions heat is not an issue and the hyperthreads keep the CPUs at 100%. The I9 9900K is the fastest, but the Extreme cpus have so many more cores that the compensating effect if more credit pe...
