Greetings,

I have one PC, 3 Raspberry Pi credit card sized computers and a Lenovo tablet running SETI.

Have a great day! :)

Just 2 here normally, but I can fire up another 2 during winter for extra heating.

Cheers.

I run 17 right now, all but three built from spare parts, cast-offs and some brilliant retro engineering....most systems are LGA 775 sockets hacked to run Xeons.

One Mid-2010 Mac Pro 5,1 System: Dual Xeon 2.4GHz CPUs, a Mac GTX-970 4GB Card, and an EVGA GTX-1050 2GB Card... There's MUCH more, but I won't go into that here.

One Hackintosh: Profile - iMac 18,3 5K 27" Retina Display, i7 7700K @ 4.2GHz with a MacVidCards' GTX-1070 8GB Card and an EVGA GTX-1050 Card... Again, there's MUCH more, but I won't go into that here.

One i7 7700 @ 3.6GHz with Integrated HD-630 GPU. <<--- Crunches on Lunatics' 0.45 Beta 6 on the GPU ONLY. (Crunches SELDOM... Maybe 2-3 Hours a week.)

I WAS crunching on all 4 GPUs using TBar's CUDA90 App. Unfortunately, I had to shut down the Mac Pro due to HIGH and EXORBITANT Electric Bills. Only the Hackintosh is regularly Crunching. The two Primary Mac Systems were Crunching 15 Hours a day starting at 18:00 Local Time. NOW, ONLY the Hackintosh runs that long, AND with the recent "Server Incident" the Hackintosh got moved to Collatz while things got re-settled here with the "Failed Download" Issues.

I will be moving the Hackintosh back to SETI when the Collatz Units are finished. Collatz is now set to NNT. I have over 300 Units left to Crunch for Collatz, then the Hackintosh will be back here.

2.5, It has been two for several months now, my daily driver an HP Omen gaming rig with a GTX 1060 and my older ASUS with a GTX 970, but I have two old Dells that are just gathering dust, so I managed to get one of them to run yesterday, has a pair of GTX 750Ti's.

Not sure if I will keep it running, but the extra heat is nice :-)

Currently four.
Vague plans to add a raspberry pi, but they are just plans and vague ones at that...

Hi Bloodrain,

My Pis take anywhere from 9 to 15 hours to process depending on WU.

Have a great day! :)

Those times look similar to what my Dual Core AMD 4200+ was. But a LOT less power use.

Six computers here. I just added up my wattage at ~3130W.
