No, put it in the fridge and just let it crunch away. Only mains needed.
Then when you want to use it, remove from fridge and turn off Boinc.
Simples.

Or, better still don't use a laptop for crunching. SETI ate my HP pavillion a few years back.

It just cooked the CPU.

I have managed to upload most of my 200+ queue now and it's stopping and starting in spurts.
Downloads are booming in.

Dont forget you can use SIVx64 to auto retry the upload queue...

Windows .... Boinc Status.... Auto Retry

I will build a host with 2 x 750s in , one on PCIe x16 and one via x1 and then run benchmarks.
I am seeing varying run times at the moment running 2 tasks per card on both 560 Ti and 750 Ti
For me the real beauty of these cards is that they need no extra power cables.

I am using PCIe x1 adaptors to run the 750TIs which have their own molex connector to power the PCI e x16 slot.

750 Ti installedmon this host http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=7218229

Behaving like any the card so far. Latest Nvidia driver 334.89 and currently doing MB on Cuda 42.

21/02/2014 16:22:34 | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 750 Ti (driver version 334.89, CUDA version 6.0, compute capability 5.0, 2048MB, 1938MB available, 2183 GFLOPS peak)

I will try it on Cuda 50 after a while and then try all 3 cards.

Hi, I just took delivery of 3 x 750 Ti and will fire them up in a couple of hours.
I will post back here if they work or not.

Any suggestions as to which version I should run Cuda 42 or Cuda 50 ?

Posted 208 days ago by Gone
Apologies, I was being sarcastic, which doesn't always translate well.
I have NO intention of rescheduling anything.
I was just trying to point out what would happen if many people did it and my take on it from a competitive point of view.

Well, if you can't beat them, join them !

Why don't we all re-schedule and see how long it takes to break things ?
I hope to have 20 hosts running by the end of the weekend, that's an awful lot of tasks I could waste if I choose to re-schedule. 1000 each host maybe ?

The competition amongst us is a big motivator for a lot of people here, as well as the science. It feels good to see your name climb the RAC tables.
If Lance Armstrong and Ben Johnson are your idols, then cheat.

I just switched from LogMeIn to Teamviewer on 12 assorted PCs and laptops, it works a treat. It adaptively changed the detail levels for slower links too. Also the file transfer utility on the top menu is great.

I used the "Setup for unattended access..." option and they stay accessible after a reboot.

I even managed to install Teamviewer via Logmein remotely, then uninstalled LogMeIn and then reconnected via Teamviewer.

One of my bigger crunchers lives in a shed in the garden due to heat and noise and I access that via a USB 3G Three dongle. It seems a much crisper response than before.

Seems like a good product and free too !
