Message 2087864 - Posted: 11 Nov 2021, 2:40:00 UTC - in response to Message 2087208.  


I've replaced both front fans in both of my cases with ML140s, and was able to move the existing 140mm front fans to replace the 120mm rear fan. That & setting the case fans to be controlled by the VRM (Voltage Regulator Module) temperatures, dropped the temperatures in the case (and the VRM) by several degrees, even when the ambient temperatures are up in the high 30s (°c).
They are noisier than the original fans, but the drop in temperature is well worth the extra noise.


. . After replacing the fans I have been running that machine open frame (no covers) and the temps were very good and the noise was surprisingly moderate. Even after replacing the heavily ventilated top and side covers the sound was still pleasingly quite. Until I replaced the front panel which has somehow amplified the fan noise considerably (at least 6db by my estimate) and the temps went up a bit, though still, as you noticed with yours, several degrees better than they had been. This was most noticeable with the CPU itself which actually dropped further, the stronger main flow of air was forcing the heat from the CPU out the RH side vents rather than adding to the general heat in the case.

Stephen

PS the noise is NOT extremely loud but has risen to the level that intrudes on my consciousness.

Been asked to register team for the 17th birthday challenge on WCG. Did so & as my current cache of OPN1 runs out approx. 2am 16/11, changed profile so that I can run MCM.
15/11/2021 17:24:43 | World Community Grid | Scheduler request completed: got 52 new tasks
15/11/2021 17:26:51 | World Community Grid | No tasks are available for Mapping Cancer Markers
15/11/2021 17:28:53 | World Community Grid | This computer has finished a daily quota of 5 tasks
Cache is for 3 days, so 3x5=15
Hmm...

A shout out to all team orphans on WCG.
The challenge is only until 22nd.
No problem if you wish to crunch as it stands, but any extra help will be great.

Not bad for a small team, only 8 of us with any recent credit.
Let's see if more members goes 100% MCM1.


. . OK you guys guilted me into it!
. . I haven't crunched WCG for well over a year, long before the changes, and it took me a while to find their settings page. But I now have 4 cores crunching MCM. It looks like each task will take about 2.5 hours so only about 40 tasks per day from me but let's see if that makes any difference.
. . But for the record only #37 ... sorry.

Only 69,821 points, out of our teams 241,566 total points generated yesterday, went to the WCG 17th Birthday Challenge.
This means of course, that the majority of the team is not running the MCM1 tasks, but other WCG projects.
Edit: Or, that they started the MCM1 run yesterday, and are waiting for a wingman . I started with MCM1 several days ago, so I had plenty of task validated yesterday.
We'll see in the coming days....


. . Well the team captain/founder can email the active members and petition them to move to MCM for the remainder of the week ...

Stephen

. . I can be a little brash that way ... :)

No problem with that Stephen. In fact Grumpy already suggested that.
Unfortunately, that's not possible.
The email would only have gone out to 3 members, so didn't bother (sorry).

. . Don't worry ... I am familiar with the Syndrome. Over at E@H I was in team Australia, same as at S@H, and there were about a dozen members. But when I resumed crunching in August because of the availability of the new app there (thanks to Petri33), I was the only one doing any work, the others had moved on. So I moved to Racoon Lovers with Richard Hasselgrove, in honour of the our beloved S@H leader's boss, Angela :) Better a team of 3 than a team of one. I guess in the absence of S@H a slow decay was inevitable.
. . Hopefully we will make a worthwhile showing ...

The problem was that only 3 members had ticked the box on their profile page, to allow the team Captain to send them an E-mail.
We're 8 actively crunching members (9 with you now Stephen). However, we do not know how many
of those, that crunch MCM1 only during this challenge.
And, thank you Unixchick, for crunching MCM1 during this WCG 17th Birthday Challenge. Every core/thread we can contribute with, counts.
Edit: We're at position 35 now. Not bad......

. . OK, I will stretch things and throw a couple more cores at the problem :)
. . I will try the one unused core on the i5-6600, but it runs hot enough just supporting the 2 x 970's. Oh well if is doesn't do well I can turn it off again.

Thanks Stephen!
Re hot: TThrottle is your friend https://efmer.com/tthrottle/
Boinc's own CPU throttling is crap.

. . I will have a look.
. . But I may not need it. The CPU was sitting nicely at 60C and now has risen (of course) and is fluctuating between 64C and 70C. I think I can live with that ... for a week :)
Stephen
Edit:-
. . It looks nice but it is a Windows tool, I am running Linux ~:-(

. . PPS :- OK, this is silly, I have set the Ryzen to use 6 cores/threads now but it steadfastly refuses to use more than 4 :(

Added four or five cores to our pile (and maybe a couple of GPUs if I've hit the right buttons.....)

. . Question for anyone ...

. . IN WCG I have set the preferences to allow up to 90% pf CPU cores/threads (to be sure, to be sure) and set the max cores to 6, but it is still only using 4 cores. IS there a setting I have missed to get it to use 6 as I specified?

Overridden by local preferences?


. . D'OH!!!

. . Aint it funny how quickly we get rusty on things and can focus on one aspect with blinkers on ...

. . Thanks muchly.

Stephen

.. BTW, now crunching on six cores, but that is about it for me. I don't think the 6600 will cope, it is fine overnight but the cold spell is over and during the day it gets rather toasty ...

I've gone from 3 hour run time to 6 hour run time per MCM. Are some WUs just more intense, or a setting issue?

I'm surprised they aren't validating quicker as well. I'm finally getting resends which are helpful as they usually already have a result waiting to be validated.

Thanks for setting this up GS.

I'll confirm what Grumpy says. I've run both Linux & Windows on WCG on numerous projects.
With some tasks, Linux did run faster & others which ran faster under Windows.
Another thing to consider is the wu's themselves.
My 1st batch since switching to MCM showed the estimated times to be 5.5/6 hours, most completed in 4.5.
The next batch show 2.45 with some taking between 3/3.25 to complete (all cpu).
