Personal background


Hello and Welcome!

(BTW. My formerly nicks were »Philip J. Fry« and »Sutaru Tsureku« for BOINC.)

I live in Germany. Born '73. Single.

You can find here inter alia informations for to optimize your PC for to get more performance/higher RAC.


(Wenn Dein Englisch nicht so gut sein sollte, komm doch zu uns in das Team seti.international, wir sprechen auch deutsch. Wir helfen gerne bei Fragen oder Problemen.)















--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Easy 'quick instruction' for to install optimized project applications:

Be aware! Optimized project applications are only for advanced users!

After installation of the optimized project applications, BOINC will not upgrade automatically the project applications if newer are available.
Of course, this will not happen every month, but you should look from time to time in the NC subforum and this thread and/or to the download site of the optimizer crew here if a newer Lunatics Installer with newer optimized project applications is available. If, then you need to upgrade again the optimized project applications manually.
Here you see the version numbers of the currently available stock/original project applications. If you see that a version number of an application in this overview is higher (for example maybe 6.04 for CPU or 6.11 for GPU) as your optimized project applications in your BOINC Manager (currently 6.03 for CPU, 6.08 6.09 or 6.10 (depend of which app_info.xml file entry) for GPU), then you need to look to the upper mentioned sites.
If you are uncertain how to install the optimized project applications and/or you have questions, feel free to post before in the NC subforum or the team forum of seti.international (you need to be a member of the team to see the private/hidden team forum).




SETI@home v7 is tested currently at SETI@home BETA and will be released after successful test here at SETI@home. So be warned that you need to upgrade your optimized applications in the near future.
I guess the optimizer crew will publish simultaneously a (new) Lunatics Installer V0.39 (?) then. Look out from time to time for the new installer
here.



O.K., if you think you can do this - here we go..


Download CPU-Z for to look which extensions (SSE/SSE2/SSE3/SSSE3/SSE4.1) your CPU have. Keep in mind the highest extension for later.
[MMX, SSE (1, 2, 3, 3S, 4.1) mean: MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1]

Download the Lunatics' Unified Installer (currently V0.38 *) for your operation system (Windows (XP/Vista/7) 32/64 bit, Windows 98).
(Also available on this site for download.)

[* only V0.38 have a suitable CUDA application for GTX4xx+ (Fermi) graphic cards included!]

I guess, I don't need to mention it, but sure is sure - exit/finish BOINC complete before the following steps.

After download, you execute the Lunatics' Unified Installer.

If your CPU have the following extensions, you could check (it depend which SETI@home project you would like to calculate, Enhanced (1st project) and maybe additional AstroPulse (2nd project)):

For AstroPulse is only a SSE optimized application available.

If your CPU have following extension, you should check for MultiBeam:

SSE - SSE (p3) [only for Intel Pentium III]
SSE2 - SSE2 [for AMD/Intel CPUs]
SSE3 - SSE3 (Intel) [only for Intel CPUs]
SSE3 - SSE3 (AMD) [only for AMD CPUs]
SSSE3 - SSSE3 (Intel) [only for Intel CPUs]
SSE4.1 - SSE4.1 (Intel) [only for Intel CPUs]

[The MultiBeam SSE4.1 application is normally only faster than the SSSE3 application, if/on Intel Core2 Duo E8xxx CPUs and the sytem RAM is very fast or O/C. For to be sure how it's on your system, you should make a (bench-)test which is faster, SSSE3 or SSE4.1 . On my Intel Core2 Duo E7600 @ 3.06 GHz with DDR2 800/5-5-5-18 system RAM the SSSE3 application is much faster than the SSE4.1 application, confirmed through bench-test.]


If you have a CUDA capable nVIDIA GPU you should check also the MultBeam CUDA application.

Lunatics Installer V0.40 have also ATI/AMD GPU project applications included (for at least HD2xxx series).


The Installer should find the correct SETI@home project folder.
If not, insert the correct path there.



Additional you should have installed the latest driver for your nVIDIA or ATI/AMD graphic card.



Additional hint:
If you have multiple grafic cards in your system, you shouldn't let run them in SLI_(nVIDIA) / CrossFire_(ATI/AMD) mode if they calculate SETI@home/Astropulse WUs, this would reduce the calculation speed.




This informations were interesting and helpful for you? Now your PC/s have much higher performance/RAC. If you like you could say 'Thank you', if you would join seti.international. We would be happy about. seti.international is currently a small team, but all team started small, isn't it? Over the years I could develop/increase my knowledge about computer hard-/software and SETI@home. If you have questions, you are 'in good hands' in the team seti.international.

I support also this project in memory of my brother and also in his name.
He died young and too early. He will be missed always.
He was also interested in the astronomy science, about the universe, SETI and science fiction.
