Re: WCG Challange 01/11 to 30/11

Hi Chris

I've got a few cores that aren't doing much at present, so I'll lend a hand to the UBT efforts on WCG for a week or so, until the next Sprint starts...

Re: Gridcoin not welcome at PrimeGrid

Hi all It looks like Gridcoin members are not so keen on PrimeGrid anymore - their credits per day have dropped dramatically: 2018-11-13 36,610,484 2018-11-12 42,448,013 2018-11-10 44,356,595 2018-11-08 41,652,638 This is quite a change from a month ago, when Gridcoin were regularly generating over ...

Collatz and PrimeGrid milestones

Hi all,

In the last few days, I've hit:

500 million on Collatz
50 million on PrimeGrid

and I've nearly got to:
5 miilion on SETI@home

So, a small fanfare and maybe a couple of Jaffa cakes with a cup o' char is in order ;-)

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Hi all, I decided to cancel the order for the mobo, as BH didn't have any and couldn't say if they would get any more. I didn't think the Chenbro would be suitable so I might go the other route and look into single CPU mobos instead - at the very least it might mean I can bring a second GPU into the...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Hi Chris I did speak to the guys at BH on the phone and it was they that suggested the Chenbro. The one thing I don't know yet, is whether the Chenbro supports the DDR3L RAM that I had in the Intel mobo. And getting an equivalent 64 Gb of standard DDR3 might be expensive. If the Chenbro doesn't DDR3...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

All in all, its pretty unbelievable that you can get a EEB Dual Xeon V1 Motherboard, with a 1U 500w PSU, for just £69.99 inclusive of p&P :shock: Something that just occurred to me about the PSU, it may have none or limited 6+2 GPU power connectors, being a server PSU. Hi Chris I had thought of tha...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Hi Chris Thanks for the extra info. I was wondering about the network ports, as the Quanta server description mentioned that the onboard network port was for "monitoring purposes"...but looking at the actual pictures of the board, it showed an RJ45 socket near to the USB and VGA ports, and there see...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Hi Chris Great find !! One thing I spotted is that Foxconn version doesn't have a PCIe slot...so, if anyone has a nice GPU, then it can't be used on this board. The Quanta board does have a PCIe slot, so even though on the ordering screen, it talks about a Riser; declining this doesn't mean you won'...

Re: Connecting two gigabit switches together

Its funny you should mention this as i'm just about to buy a couple of switches for the server and other stuff.

Re: Gridcoin not welcome at PrimeGrid

PrimeGrid wants to be able to trust its results so is asking Gridcoin to remove them from their whitelist. http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=8272 No monetary gains for crunching PrimeGrid, less chance of someone cheating and falsifying results. Personally, I think this is going to catch ...
