1) Message boards : Number crunching : PCIe x1 GPU cards? (Message 1666958)
Posted 7 days ago by Profile GTP
FWIW I have a 780 running on a PCIe x1 slot with no problems. The extender cable is however powered by a MOLEX.

I got no new work for the past 4 hours. So there is still an issue.

I am running 2 780's with riser cards. I would just to make sure they are POWERED risers. I tried the standard non powered version and just like you finding, only my 750TI would work.

5) Message boards : Number crunching : GTX 980 Resisting Memory Speed Setting with EVGA Precision (Message 1662420)
Posted 18 days ago by Profile GTP
I found I couldn't adjust the memory speed clocks with Precision X on a new 980. Then I stumbled on the fact that the setting will not stick if you have the GPU loaded. Exit SETI and wait a few seconds for the process's to stop and then try it. Then start SETI again.

SETI@home or bust!

Wait, its already busted. Carry on.

Looks like a cheap cruncher, any thoughts?

Actually, just kidding. I just wanted to thank the "crew" behind the scenes that fixed the problem of no downloads earlier. Also statics pages are noticeably quicker. Careful now, we might come to EXPECT this in the future!

10) Message boards : Number crunching : GTX 970 lack of promised full 4.0GB RAM buzz (Message 1636780)
Posted 2 Feb 2015 by Profile GTP
Doesn't anyone have anything to add to this news? I imagine it effects SETI users in the fact that you don't ONLY crunch SETI with your GPU's? Right?

The brief story is only 3.5GB of the cards RAM has full speed. The other 512MB is pooled into half speed or less.

Wonder if this should affect users considering a 970 vs a 980? All I know is AMD is having a field day with this!

I have 3 of those exact x1 to x16 riser cards coming in the mail already. I will let you know how it goes!

Has anyone used a PCI-E splitter for GPU crunching? Specifially something like:

Thanks for the comments guys. Any quick links to getting the 750Ti crunching 2 2WU's at a time?

Posted 29 May 2014 by Profile GTP
Basically what I am finding is the 750Ti is half as powerful as a GTX 570 Superclocked while using 1/4 of the power!

GTX 570 240watt TDP
GTX 750Ti 60watt TDP

GTX 570:
Runtime 425.30
CPU time 105.32

GTX 750Ti:
Runtime 901.23
CPU time 261.13

Just thought I would put it out there!

Posted 26 May 2014 by Profile GTP
Hello!

I am currently running 2x GTX 570 GPU's and a 8core AMD CPU for SETI. I have thought about getting 3x GTX 750Ti to bring the power use down. My question is since the GTX 750Ti cards dont have an external power supply connector, will 180watts be supported by the PCI-E bus on the motherboard without frying something up. Each 750Ti card is 60watts is how I came up with the 180watt.

All the best,

17) Message boards : Number crunching : Need help doing CUDA job's ONLY! (Message 1390334)
Posted 13 Jul 2013 by Profile GTP
I have a small shuttle XPC cube PC that I want to crunch with. It has a Athlon X2 6000+ CPU but I am only seeing 400ish RAC from it. Since the PSU that comes on the shuttle is a 300watt I thought I could safely crunch faster be using a EVGA GT620 CUDA card and not doing any CPU jobs at all. Just have it there for some I/O. However I installed the card, BOIC recognizes its existence in the event log but it not requesting and new jobs. It's the "XPC2" computer in my profile. Any ideas? Your help is welcomed!

Got it. A successful move! Just ran the work dry, installed BOINC, and copyed the DIR over. And here I thought there may be some secret registry keys!

What all do I need to transfer over from the old HD so as not to create a new computer ID with BOINC?

Thank You!
