Jim, my old X4 630 (no overclock) runs 2 stock spec'd 660's using, -sbs 1024 -period_iterations_num 10 -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, cmdline and is lag free in use.

I can't comment on the other 2 cards as my other 2 rigs use 3GB 1060's that replaced 5xx cards.

Cheers.

I was just Now getting ready to put the Lunatics app in all 3 Puters,
Then I checked in here again...Now I'm totally confuzzed again.
OH Dear now what to do, Oh My, Oh Me, Oh My. (Mind Frying...Brain Fart, FUZzzzzzzzzzzzaaaaaaappp)! ~~*:o/

If I install the new Anonymous App from Mike's page will it delete the old Config file or should I remove it Manually from all My Boxes?

The app_config.xml file will remain untouched.
I'd suggest leaving it there, and just removing the Seti@homev7 section, and editing the CPU & GPU values to the ones you want. That will leave the configuration you're previously set for AP still intact.
The Lunatics installer should select the best Application for the CPU, but you will have to select the appropriate GPU application- ie Nvidia SoG.


Got it...Thanks. :o)
Will The same GPU application for Nvidia SoG, Work on my 3 cards?
Card1 GTX660sc 2gb
Card2 GTX750oc 2gb
Card3 GTX 1050 2gb

How many cudas should that card run @ one time without Slowing too much?

Not sure exactly what you're asking there.
CUDA is the platform and API (Application Programming Interface) for computing on Nvidia's hardware.
On that card, the most WUs I would run at a time would be 1.

If not being used for daily work, just as a cruncher,
-tt 600 -hp -period_iterations_num 1 -high_perf -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 -cpu_lock
should result in plenty of work being crunched.

Running stock, you'd need to put it in the
mb_cmdline-8.22_windows_intel__opencl_nvidia_SoG.txt
file in the Seti project directory.

If running Lunatics then it goes in the
mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV_SoG.txt
file, also in the Seti project directory.

Once the file has been saved, no need to do anything else- the values will be picked up when the next WU starts being processed.


My Question is based on this Old thread where Zalster helped Me...https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=79070

You got an old Luntics installer. ;-)

You'll find the latest Lunatics installer "0.45 Beta 6" here, http://mikesworld.eu/download.html.

Cheers.

I just got done checking and discovered that...Thanks Wiggo. :)


I think that I'm going to let the stock app level off before putting in the latest Lunatics App.
At least as long as the stock (opencl_nvidia_SoG) does not start throwing Errors.

Grant, I did as instructed and ran a Fresh download of v44 but there was no (opencl_nvidia_SoG) to be found.
Sooooo, I uninstalled Everything again and just installed stock With Zalsters config that he helped me with. Cause it downloaded a CRAPload of cuda 42s and 50s.
Stock is running nvidia_SoG's OK so far.
What did I Screw-Up? :o\

That My Friend will be the problem...I just don't get it. Also the config file that I run on my other 2 boxes were written by Zalster... I "Think". ;)

Once you've got it installed and running, post back here and people will be able to help you out.

I take it this will go in the Phenom II X4 945 system already running Lunatics?
I'd shut down BOINC completely, and disable it in Windows Startup for now so it doesn't restart when the system does. Download the video driver from Nvidia, shut down the system- pull the old card, stick in the new one & re-boot. After it settles down, uninstall the old video driver, do a clean install of the new driver. Re-boot several times as required.
Re-run the Lunatics installer & make sure to select the SoG application for NVidia this time.
Restart BOINC & if everything is good, all your current GPU work should continue to be crunched by the new video card, and any new work should download & have (opencl_nvidia_SoG) appended to the end of the Application details.
If that's all good, then re-enable BOINC in Windows Startup.

Come back here, and there should be a few configuration settings available to see how things go.


I'm going to run down all of my old tasks first and upgrade BOINC first. I Have already set to no new tasks. Been wanting to upgrade first.
