Let me verify when I get home next time I see it "freeze".
If the GPU's are cold, I say the system froze.

At least two of my Dell farm units were cold this morning.

How MUCH RAM DOES LINUX TAKE TO RUN WELL?
Plus the 1 GB per work unit?

Each Dell unit has 4G of RAM. Doesn't seem enough...

Thanks for the acid test Tom. It will be nice to see it go.
Unfortunately, the I often find the system frozen every morning like I did this morning.

I wish I had a tool that can monitor my machines and send me an email when they are not heard from for a period of time...

So if my post New Years celebration brain is right, I got 18 1060 GPU's crunching Seti now!
The two PC's with the AMD cards will eventually become my computing PC's in my lab.
I lost count of the cores I'm running... I thinks its something like 80 or so...

Yep. All 9 on the mining rig. Got myself a nice 5 GPU "Dell" farm running too! I'm letting them run one core and one 1060.

Glad to be back.

I guess my last statement was politically incorrect.

They might not be green...

Yep. I agree. The only way to find a good one is to develop some sort of PCI analyzer, buy your board of interest, and test each lane. If you find a lane that cant run full speed, send it back before you try this. The deal about the 9 GPU limit in my case is hard to postulate on but it exists nonetheless. At least i can get 9 GPU's all churning in the hunt for the little green men!

Hey swim fans!

I got the Gigbyte Fintech working on 9 cards but it wasn't easy. I have found one poor performing PCI slot on the MB!
Seems pretty stable but it wont let me get 10 cards on board.
I've tried all combinations of cards, risers, cables and slots and I cat get 10 working.

I have the ASUS MB back from warranty service (No trouble found) so I might try that today.

Keep the faith.

Tom's multi GPU idea sounds interesting!

Happy holidays

After more than an hour, I can get 9 cards plugged in and showing good in nvidia settings.
cant get 10 no matter what. Tried two different GPUs and four different riser /cable pairs...
Gotta go get ready to fly out.

Try again later.

Keep an eye on the stats for MINER-L

I think I might wait until I get my ASUS back to try again.
I can get 12 GPU's working using the farm method if I get to work now.
