It's a corsair 850 watt

It helps if you give links, I forgot the exact model

Is it?:

In my posts - only 2 that have "1000 MHz" (but none is about "clock of other brands")

(I think you mean Glenn savill)

The stock clocks (MHz) for AMD Radeon HD 6570 are (GPU/RAM) 650/900 MHz
http://www.amd.com/en-gb/products/graphics/desktop/6000/6570#2
(this official page is too dark - use Ctrl+A to 'see in the dark')

My ASUS EAH6570/DI/1GD3(LP) have the same standard clocks: 650/900 MHz
I run it at 800/1050 MHz (max allowed by MSI Afterburner on my card)

... so its really based on numbers and popularity of that card.

That is not right

The person to listen about BOINC internals is Josef W. Segur

// "best-performing" is defined as minimizing the average of
//
// elapsed_time(J)/rsc_fpops_est(J)
// over completed jobs J currently in the DB


"Best GPU" = Min (Run-time/FLOP-count-estimate)

Seems to be calculated only for:
- tasks that run > 100 seconds
- tasks sent in the last 30 days
- only max 500 tasks for given GPU model are included in the average

Do not depend on "numbers and popularity of that card"
Only if really low number of some GPU model is used here (e.g. < 10) this may be the reason of more fluctuating

Very funny :)
But then - if you wanted - you know how to scramble it (and unscramble in memory) so it will - this time - pass undetected.

Wait! - the scrambled virus will pass undetected but what about the good code? - it will be detected again ... so ... we are where we started ;)

Look what I fell over on the way! I don't believe this one either - anybody ever had any previous experience of herd protect before? A bit too keen on sponsored advertising 'solutions' for my liking.

All 6 that show Gen:Variant.Fosniw are using the BitDefender engine

I had to fight similar problem with one of the stock apps on Asteroids@home
that was giving 'Gen:Variant.Kazy' for some people:
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=286&postid=2922#2922

Fight was successful after I sent reports to 4-5 vendors (and I think they pushed on BitDefender)

I scanned the 32-bit file locally with McAfee (since I have it, and BilBg said it it came up on the VirusTotal hitlist). Nothing - clean. Got the very latest manual update from McAfee - still nothing. McAfee won't accept a sample larger than 10 MB for checking - we're at 22 MB (heavily compressed). So I'm stuck there.

I never used McAfee (well - I used the DOS version in ~1990 IIRC) so don't know how to do the next:
- try to increase the Heuristic/Scanner sensitivity to some 'paranoid' level
(it is possible that different sites use different Settings on their Antiviruses)

I Uploaded also here (where 2 are red):

It is not editing code at all, you drag and drop the new app, then double click on the aimerge.cmd.

Then start BOINC back up.


Thanks Arkayn, I didn't think it could be that simple. Followed the instructions and it worked the first time. Now getting AP 7 work.

Be warned that you will lose the tasks in progress if/when you run the next Lunatics installer:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=75810&postid=1585689#1585689

The .aistub uses <version_num>701</version_num> and the Lunatics installer will use what is appropriate (704, 705, ...) from the stock list:

You can see how this works:

BOINC assigns device 1 (Capeverde - AMD Radeon HD 7770)
-unroll default value used: 10
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=3778940694

BOINC assigns device 0 (Pitcairn - AMD Radeon R7 265)
-unroll default value used: 16
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=3778940709

App uses different -unroll for different GPUs automatically

Once again... How do I get the screensaver running?

And "Once again" - you need to first 'Add' SETI@home project to that computer

How do you expect SETI@home screensaver to be running if you don't have any apps and tasks from SETI@home?
