Hi,
And I'm sorry about bolstering my achievements in a thread that is supposed to be just for that purpose.

My achievement:
a) the average processing rate that matches the previous generation GPU's APR on Astropulse tasks.
b) going over the APR on Seti before the I) credit new and II) v8.

The only person I can blame about that is me.

SETI@home v8 (anonymous platform, NVIDIA GPU)
Number of tasks completed 	912229
Max tasks per day 	5865
Number of tasks today 	1251
Consecutive valid tasks 	391
Average processing rate 	1,912.23 GFLOPS
Average turnaround time 	0.09 days

A VERY VERY BIG Fan to cool off your whole PC including the GPU's (Air filters not included) using a custom made side panel.


We have a winner. The fan is so big and hard to mount to the side panel I threw off the whole side panel.
Originally it is meant to be used as a HVAC duct blower.

Post:
do you have a cc_config.xml file in your BOINC directory and use_all_gpus setting set to 1 since you have intel gpu also.

<cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>

Ok. I'm in new territory now as I bust through the 101K mark. :-)

My 3570K rig is now over 45K, the 2500K is over 43K and the Borg has now passed 12.5K after almost 10 days.

I'm also up to 111th spot by total and 107th by RAC.

Cheers.


Nice!

I was doing a bunch of reading about Tesla Compute Cluster (TCC) mode -- you can enable this if your primary GFX is something else like IGP. In your setup you might be able to enable it since you have multi-GPU; it might get you to P0. If you try let me know -- I'm designing my next build and considering getting a chip with IGP if it means I can use TCC mode for the discrete GPUs.


I'll google the TCC mode. Thanks.

Hi Petri,

How much effort would it take to create a Windows version of your app? It sounds like there are real benefits.
I would really like to use the most efficient application possible and contribute as much as possible to SETI using the resources I have.

Cheers
Mark


Hi Mark,
rob_smith kind of answered that. It would need that you have a working windows compilation environment and then copying the new code over that. Then some fiddling with C/C++ header files and a lot of testing.
Jason_gee is testing. He can compile and he has a version for windows, but due to the big number of errors in pulseFind still it is not ready to be released.
My code has an issue with sometimes reporting a wrong pulse as the best found.
I'm sure the windows version will come eventually.

After a night of cooking it was hovering around 65C and the fans were about 40%-50% I believe -- single-tasked though so you can see it cooling off between tasks so I bet it'll run a bit louder when I switch to double-tasks. NVSMI was also suggesting it was nowhere near TDP so I suspect there's still room to push it harder.


I had to rise the power CAP from 250W to 285W so that power draw is not a limiting factor. It hits sometimes 272-280W. To keep temp below 67C I had to push the fan to 98%. The GPU load hovers at 93-99%. P2 state has 2088 MHz set and 2040MHz running as GPU clock and mem clock is 10690MHz. I can not get the GPU to do CUDA at P0.

This is a link to a picture.

It somehow tries to reflect a thought I had a moment ago when reading news about the difficulty of finding a match.
I never thought that it would be so hard.
I've found mine years ago.

Now you have a link into my head. Post your visual thoughts here.

This is a place for only the pictures that reflect your mind. Comments on another thread or not even there.

I've replaced the pair of 980Ti's with a single 1080Ti and single-tasked it's doing about 1900 CPH with the same command-line below. It's only been cooking for a few days now so I'll have to give it time to see if it stays stable.


The new Ti is an amazing performer, isn't it.
How are your temp/fan% ?

Did you remember to restart BOINC after changing the app_info settings? Changes to the app_info require a restart. Removing the -bs setting will cause the App to use 100% CPU, I've never seen a case where it didn't.


. . So selecting "read config files" won't do it ??

. . I will execute a restart

Stephen

oops.


You could use an app_config.xml I guess to make changes to parameters 'immediate' to next task starting.

Hi again,

A 1060 is half of a 1080 (10 vs 20 SM units).

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=2505776655

The performance is amazing. A 1060 is a bit more efficient. The price is less than half.


Next 20
