Well, you could try dropping this line into your "mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV.txt" in your projects folder. Open that folder with Notepad. Copy and paste the line. Save. Next task to run will run with those settings and with fingers crossed, it should be much faster and without errors(!).

-sbs 1024 -spike_fft_thresh 4096 -tune 1 64 1 4 -oclfft_tune_gr 256 -oclfft_tune_lr 16 -oclfft_tune_wg 256 -oclfft_tune_ls 512 -oclfft_tune_bn 64 -oclfft_tune_cw 64

However, unless I am mistaken, you'll first have to re-run the Lunatics Installer. If you don't have it, you can get it from Mike's World. The current installer package there is the Lunatics 0.45. package. After running the installer, then look for that folder (mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV.txt) in your projects folder (setiathome.berkeley.edu. or something like that).

The speed increase would be quite visibly noticeable. Clicking on 'Properties' of SETI GPU task(s) in BOINC Manager, should show the running executable as being, MB8_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV_SoG_r3557.exe. If not, did you re-run the installer?

And was the SOG app selected when running the installer?

Yes, indeed so, Mark. It is the NV_OpenCL_SoG version that is needed. Maybe I should have made a few more assumptions.

And I believe the correct name of the file to add that command line to is..............
mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV_SoG.txt

I got confused on that just this past weekend.

Yep, you got it! Thankfully, I also got that right in my original reply <breathes sigh of relief>.

LOL.
No, ya didn't............
Check again.
You posted "mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV.txt".
That's why I clarified with "mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV_SoG.txt".

Just trying to save some confusion there.

D'oh!!! Honestly, I don't know <head-slaps self>....got a head too full of file names and loads of different Notepad file names to see it! Thanks for pointing it out, Mark.

No worries, we all do it for sure.
Just wanted to be sure he was pointed in the right direction.

Meow.

I placed the line inside mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV_SoG.txt but I see Lunatics_x41zi_wind32_cuda32.exe running.

Even though it says cuda 32 on the name of the work units, if you installed the SoG, it will run on the SoG application. The cuda 32 was stamped on it when the work unit was first downloaded. Each new work unit will say SoG on it. You can verify that it was crunched with the SoG by looking at the stderr output when it reports. You can also look there to see if your commandlines too affect.

You have multiple computers.

Your i7 920 is running SoG, but not the command line values to improve performance.
Your i7-3770K is running CUDA50, hence it's rather long crunching times. Re-run the installer & select SoG
Your A10-5800K is running SoG, with the default values- not sure what the effect of changing them is for AMD hardware.
Your i7-3930K is running CUDA32, hence it's ridiculously long crunching times. Re-run the installer & select SoG.
Your E3-1230 v3 is running SoG, with the default values.

When you run the installer, it generally will choose the best application for the CPU- however you must select the appropriate application for the GPU.

1) Install Linux.
2) get a Soft ware to do what a person has to do. (Missspellintentional)
