Yes, I suppose OC cards will be running faster stock frequencies.

my aim was going to buy 1 or 2 used 980 or 980Ti for my new rig but I am now being slowly coming around to with the latest NVidia 10X0, they appear to be more suited to number crunching. with less power. My motherboard can take 4 GPU cards, but I was going to start with a couple first and then see where I go after that.

I had a look at your 2x 1060, so about 20K average RAC per GPU. Good to see what I can expect from them thanks.

Steven

It's more around the 18-19K range while GBT work is flowing, but if you are going to run 4 of them then be very careful with what you get as a lot take up 2.1 to 2.2 slots now.

My ASUS DUAL-GTX1060-O3G's are of a 2.1 design so they won't suit you, but my Gainward GeForce GTX 1060 3GB's would (the reason that I bought them for that rig is so I can add a 3rd to it).

Cheers.

They could already have reached D.C. by now. So ... ?

It takes a while using a walker.

Even longer when the walker is loaded up with firearms and ammo. ;-)

For gaming you are better off getting the 6GB version, but for just crunching here 3GB is all you need.

Take a look at my 2 rigs with dual 3GB 1060's. ;-)

Cheers.

The only thing truly dangerous here is the Snowflakes refusing to accept that their side lost the election.
We have a new sheriff in town.
And he is the law now.
And, if you noticed, I am not getting sucked in by any of the windbagging around here trying to diminish the man.

He is my president.
And if you live in the United States, he is YOUR president as well.

He will undoubtedly make some decisions that I do not agree with along the way.
I would be foolish not to believe otherwise.
But I shall continue to stand beside him 100%.
I voted for him, and I will continue to support him.

Meow, Snowflakes.

Are you not worried that your President is now the laughing stock of Sweden and other countries.

The People, not Washington, for good or bad. Have never really cared.

Why should they?

Because the US needs the rest of the civilised world and vice versa.

The Rest of the World at the moment, is at best, unsure of what he and the US are heading.
He insults countries and their people, he doesn't 'read' the news or believe the intelligence reports he is given, and would rather take opinion on cable TV as fact.
And he seems to believe Putin walks on water.

Under your project preferences you can set a "Resource share" for that project.

Mine is set as 100 for SETI and 0 for my backups projects so those backup projects only get asked for work when I have no SETI work for a certain resource.

Cheers.


. . But what if the alternate projects floods your caches with their work and you cannot get new work for the primary project when it becomes available? My issues in changing back from E@H were the need to set NNT and wait for the cache to process through or abort them to get back to SETI. Can this be avoided?

Stephen

??

My backup projects are only allowed to pickup half a day's worth of cache at anytime.

Cheers.

Never could get that to work correctly. I assume you are using alternate venue locations for the backup projects?

Yes I do.

Backup projects just use the General venue settings while here at SETI they each rig uses totally different venue setting.

Cheers.

You mean Richie, aka Clyde?

Can you imagine the results if he can't get anyone to take any notice of him and his unproductive childish posts anymore?

That's good to hear James, but these days I find jobs to do on this place just to keep me occupied in retirement, when other things don't intrude on free time.

Sunday Beer O'clock is only 2hrs away so I better make sure that everything is ready for it. ;-)

An 88K RAC yesterday and 89K today. :-O

The 2500K has now passed 43K while the 3570K is trying for 46K and yesterday's stats dump said that I returned over 113K in 24hrs (it'll be interesting to see what the last 24hrs produced when they come through in a few hours).

Cheers.

Trump is just showing us what a loser he really is, he played the hate card first and now its biting him back, but if you can't stand the heat then you shouldn't be in the kitchen to start with.

CLYDE, you note others sinking, none have sunk a far as you have here. Repeating what you really mean "Screw the vast majority of law abiding undocumented individuals".

Bobby, he isn't sinking, that is a powered dive.

I've now got a total RAC of over 86K. :-O

My 3570K rig is well past 44K while my 2500K rig is now well past 41K.

How long to go before those GBT tasks come back and put a lid on this kind of behaviour?

Cheers.
