It's finally got some Credit!
3 WUs validated.

Now how the hell did he get 89.94 for a WU that ran for 15.51 seconds when a couple of WUs that ran for around 11,000 secs got 96 & 97 and then 113 for another 11,000sec runtime????

Well, CreditNew strikes again :-)

Probably they really were real overflows. It's now coming in WU's run full time.

Yeah, I just noticed a whole pile that completed came through.
If that's the case, it looks like in the next few hours i'll be spitting out quite a few noisy WUs as well.

Yeah. So far, no GBT VLARs being crunched though.

Edit: I find this interesting to follow. I just wonder if it's a sign that I really don't have a life to live :-)

All WU's so far have finished early with -9 result_overflow.

Add another one to that.

Can you determine if all these results are coming from one CPU or both?
I'd re-check you CPU temperatures, for both CPUs.
Got a multimeter? I'd check the power supply voltages as well.

I'd also run an Extended Memory Test.

Click Start, type mdsched.exe in the Search box, and then press Enter.
Choose whether to restart the computer and run the tool immediately or schedule the tool to run at the next restart.
Windows Memory Diagnostics runs automatically after the computer restarts and performs a standard memory test automatically. If you want to perform fewer or more tests, press F1, use the Up and Down arrow keys to set the Test Mix as Basic, Standard, or Extended, and then press F10 to apply the desired settings and resume testing.
When testing is completed, the computer restarts automatically. You’ll see the test results when you log on.

Well I personally like SoG despite what anyone else may say.. lol

Me too, SoG runs the GBT VLARs very well on my 980. Sure they run slower than normal AR's, but hey I'm in no hurry. :-)

Keep them coming, is all I say.

Interesting machine, but it doesn't seem to do much yet. Only one task finished, and waiting for validation.

Well, it was only just born.
Give it a few hours and it should start popping out 12WUs/hr (or more).

Yeah, I noticed that the WU already done, was a " -9 result_overflow"

It'll be interesting to see what it can produce.

It's highly unlikely that I will upgrade my GTX980 to a GTX1080 or a GTX1070 just to run SETI, or actually at all, since I do not play any games at all on my computer(s). Maybe I will upgrade the GPU way down the road, when things have stabilized here, and we know what work we're going to run.

Lots of questions to be answered first though, such as:
Will there be an MB v9 in the near future?
Will there be an AP app, capable of running GBT tasks?
Will the utterly broken credit calculation be fixed, or will the credit continue to fall until there is a negative credit given for every task you crunch?

Until all of the above questions are answered one way or the other, and the result of those answers/decisions has been evaluated through testing on Beta, and in real production here on main, I will probably crunch fewer and fewer hours on SETI (I will not stop crunching SETI totally though). Since there are no other projects I'm interested in, that means I will save lots of money, using less electricity :-)

More and more top users are now aborting GBT VLARs from their GPU's, en masse. It's thousands and thousands of WU's that has to be sent out again.

Sure the RAC is falling like a stone, but does it really matter? You can't buy anything for SETI credit anyhow. It would be nice of course if this mess with CreditCrapNew is fixed, but come on, it's not the end of the world.

I have bought a couple of parachutes, so I will at least avoid the big SPLASH, when I hit the ground, or in the worst of case go deep underground :-)
