if there really are 5,000,000 + workunits ready to send ... it will be the great wu flood of 2013 .. head for higher cpu's

if they stopped sending out work till Results out in the field were almost zero. then analyze whats left and if the computers doing that work will ever return it. all the time build up a huge reserve of Results ready to send... in other words kinda start over with whatever changes the have planned ie:
(longer wu's, less load on the database and so on.. )

id rather a go month or so without any work if in the end it results in a much more stable and smoother running project overall

well the q8400 will do sse4.1
.. however no idea what one will do better
ssse3 or sse4.1
someone did some testing before ..
and it was for the most part inconclusive

im running a Gigabyte GTX 460 SOC (super overclock) and a BFG GTX 295 co-op
with 2 tasks at a time on each( for 6 at once ) and my current temps are :

gtx 460: 58c
gtx 295 core 1: 58c
gtx 295 core 2: 61c

all in a antec 900 case

non tech explaination: opti apps do more work per clock cycle and do not cause any signifigant rise in temps

i say run some dryer ducting from the back of the computers to a exaust vent or something and add a fan that can pull enough air to not let the heat build at the computers .. so that it leaves the house like a real dryer does
no need to cool the air just remove it from the aera

can we see some pics of the computer setups
then we can give some more sugestions

well what i was getting at was if you split the pcie lanes and were able to put for example 12 gtx 690's in a custom built enclosure with a few 1200 watt power supplys and a AMD's Magny-cours (12 core) Opteron just to feed the gpus

1. what kind of rac
2. would the project even give you enough work to fill it up
3. what problems does anyone think a system like this would have

seing as your able to run 7 ..

assuming you had enough power to run all the cards what is the max amount of gpus the project would support per 1 computer

why not install seti to the usb stick and run it off of it where ever.
he'll keep the computer id ???
13) Message boards : Number crunching : server upload /download settings (Message 1177637)
Posted 955 days ago by Profile Peter M. Ferrie
i suggested this idea in 2009 but it was swept under the rug, anyway here goes

if the upload/download server was set to allow 1 upload/download per computer , would that cut the bandwidth in use almost in half as it seems that 2 per computer max's out the download bandwidth it seams that this may ease the strain a little on the connection.

for those who say what about the people on dialup , boo hoo to you .
98% of the project is on some kind of broadband connection. so to quote Spock " the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few... or the one. "


lest's discuss...

i have an calculator can i crunch a work unit manually?
how does a person fast Fourier transform?
if i cool myself in liquid nitrogen can i overclock myself to the limit?
will i save on the power bill if i crunch work units by hand, would i be considered "green" by the EPA and would i then be allowed to wear this :

on my forehead ??
