Re: The Hunt Is ON!

Flybywire

"Hydra" Let me guess, a motherbrd with three PCI express slots and three 9800gx2's. Six "Hydra" GPU's
That should give you 30k. Very close to the UGN Rodents.

I may have to build Heracles!

Re: The Hunt Is ON!

David I have more than ****. I can out fold your farm any day. And the laughter will be mine one day!

Flybywire looks like you picked up some hardware. I see you will over take me in 9.1 years.

To bad we can't combine points and smoke those Rodents.

Re: The Hunt Is ON!

Flybywire, I have cooked up something! I think some of the posters are correct that 2662 suck. Some times they give good points sometime not. And they hang. It looks like they send and stop. I have to stop and restart the core. Fahmon says I am hitting between 38 and 40k but it is not showing in the...

Re: UnitedGerbilNation's drive to the Top

Not even close Davidxxxx! I am actually thin. No Fat on me!

I found an app for processes if anyone interested. It is called Process Lasso. It allows you to
set affinity and process priority. Seems to have helped my little farm!

Re: UnitedGerbilNation's drive to the Top

It looks like priority and # of CPUs are options, but not affinity. It is one of those settings you have to add manually. Scroll a few posts up . Try inserting those processor[X].use statements and see if it works. For now I'm not going to mess with affinity. It seems to be doing well on its own. I...

C'mon guys. $100 gets you a 8800GT which is good for 35000 PPW.

Re: UnitedGerbilNation's drive to the Top

Looks like I have found a partial answer. For the affinity part. In case you are wondering.
I wonder if there is one for the Priority? Will continue looking.

Re: UnitedGerbilNation's drive to the Top

I see you guys know how to set the VMware processor affinity. My problem seems that each time the GPU2 gets a new unit it sets itself back to core 2 and idle. I want to be able to change the core affinity, and process priority so that it sticks. Any clues? Maybe a setting in the GPU2 .ini, if it has...

Sorry to miss the competition while you are on vacation. Sound like you will have a fun time though. I be sure to keep the Gerbils sweating.
I should have a Yorkfield or two when you get back to keep it exciting.

They are actually fast IF you have the memory! My 8400 with 2 gig went up 300 ppd. Since this is my only 8400 at present I don't know if this is normal. If you are running in a VMware with limited memory it sucks. Blowing away Wu's is a bad thing. I had one half of a quad running VMware and getting ...

You are just delaying the Inevitable!
45nM Quads are out next week!

Nice points increase tho! Thanks for giving Flybywire and me a shifting goal. It has not seemed to help the team points, if
we are just moving users from single to Gerbil. You guys need new blood.

See you at the top!
