Hello Fellow SETIzens,

A long time coming: we hit 13,000,000 and I am finally starting to pick up the pace.
Congratulations to all my fellow crunchers. Excelsior!!

It is a good thing I clicked on this thread; found out I could donate my Gridcoin to directly benefit
my first and favorite BOINC project. So far, I kicked in 700 (about $50.00) to the kitty! Have a great
holiday season, all!

Well, we have another million in the bank at 12. While I am working on getting more
assets on-line, I am happy to have contributed my meager! Congratulations to all on their
crunching milestones.

The power folks have me over a barrel, but I have hit 11,000,000.... finally!
Congratulations to all with new milestones. I will be happy when summer ends
and I can actually use my computer/GPU's horsepower. Until then, I will have
to console myself with existing progress. Excelsior!

Late again!! Pretty amazed the way the thing has grown. Congratulations to all, and to all a grand new year of crunching.

Hi there,

Not anywhere near the giants, but just posted my 10,000,000th. Will keep at it.
Congratulations to all participants, and thanks to the community

Just over a hundredth of your output! Hit 9M today. Wish I had more compute power and electric bill paying ability! Congratulations on an herculean effort.

Hi there!

My own modest progress:
I hit 8M today. Now that things are up and running with V8, I expect to pick up the pace here shortly.
Congratulations to all on their achievements!
Excelsior!

Just cracked 7 million. The last one here took two months, which is starting to look like real production. The replacement for the 590 furnace, my 660, is not half bad! Now if only I could get my hands on, say, a 980..... wishes and fishes! Congrats to all my crunching compatriots.

Just hit 6 million. The 590 died, but the 660 is working pretty fine. It is too bloody hot to run in the daytime with no air, though!

Always seem to be late to these celebrations; I hope not "fashionably" late!

Congratulations to all! Stalwart comrades and all that stuff

I am happy to be amongst all you crunchers

Posted 18 Apr 2015 by Profile Bhagwanmike
Post:
The spec for X1 PCI-e states that the max is 25W. I would think that the cards intended for an X1 slot should conform to that standard. YMMV of course, but I would think that if the MB is plumbed for X1, the traces should be able to handle it.

Finally made 5 million. Took considerable time, but not a lot of effort. Thanks for the work units! Setting my sights on 10 million.

Happy to report crossing 4 million on SETI, and have dedicated the new machine to getting to 5 as quickly as possible. It will be easier now that it is getting cooler; the i7 990 and GTX 590 are real space heaters!!

Hope this helps.

Also remember your case and RAM clearances, too!

I notice nobody has mentioned the blessing/bane of my new crunching, the
GTX 590. I got it as a hand-me-down gift, and while it sucks power like a
Dyson, it does manage to crank out decent numbers. It also doubles as a
space heater, which should be interesting when December rolls around. When
I first started its new career, it was running about 100C each side. I quickly
pulled it and took a look at the heat sink. Sure enough, it looked like the filter
on a Dyson!!! I cleaned it carefully, and now the thing runs at about 86-91C flat out.
This still isn't good for the long haul, but I am planning on replacing it with a Kepler or
Maxwell based card that doesn't cost arms and legs to run.
20) Questions and Answers : Windows : CPU tasks starting over from 0 when running restricted hours (Message 1550701)

Hi gang!

I have been having a problem lately running Lunatics under 7.2.42. I normally run between 00:30 and 05:30; it is too bloody hot the rest of the time. Lately, I have been checking, and sometimes, 4 of the 9 CPU work unit threads will start over from 0, and I lose 8-9 processing hours just recovering from the backup. I haven't seen it affect GPU work units, just the CPU only WUs. Has anybody seen this sort of behavior, and if so, is there anything that can be done? It is only annoying, the world isn't collapsing on me, it is just curious that only 4 threads will give up and restart. Thanks in advance.
