Hardware info, tips & tricks / Re: Ryzen cruncher for under $1k
« on: 09 March, 2017, 02:10:36 AM »
be careful at SuperBiiz, their RMA process is a joke.

It took me over 2 months to RAM a mobo, i now refuse to shop there.

my plan:
CPU: AMD RYZEN 7 1700 3.0GHz 8-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L9x65 SE-AM4
Motherboard: Mini-ITX with 6 SATA ports
Memory: 16GB
Storage: Have
Video Card: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC GV-N1070IXOC-8GD
Power Supply: Have
Case: Have


all this to replace an AMD E-450.

Hardware info, tips & tricks / Re: Optimal Memory Config
« on: 05 March, 2017, 02:50:50 PM »
i put 8 x 4gb per system. or 4 x 4 GB per CPU

The C612 chipset is capable of quad channel RAM so 4 DIMMS per CPU is optimal.
However not all projects are RAM speed dependent.
VietOZ runs his dual xeons in dual channel on WCG and sees no points reduction.

8 DIMMs per CPU will reduce the max speed from 2133 to 1866.
i only have 1 machine with 16 DIMMs and i do not see any points difference in DC projects due to speed reduction.

I have been trying to use that link, it is what I had bookmarked but Chrome or Firefox immediately close the tab.

if you are using a piehole it does not work with the OGR stats site for some reason even if you whitelist it.

BOINC / Re: Boinc not using all cores on win 10
« on: 12 January, 2017, 06:40:19 PM »
i remember this problem now, it has to do with NUMA balancing.

once you get over 64 cores Windows creates a second NUMA group. 

BOINC is not programmed to correctly allocate the processes to the different NUMA groups.
This script was created for me by a fellow XS member, i can't remember who now.
http://73.155.178.123:81/images/NUMA_Balancer_WCG_1_0.zip

it will re-allocate the WCG processes across the NUMA groups.

If i remember correctly, you have to set it up in the process scheduler to run every 5 minutes or so to keep everything balanced.

Because of the above issue, all my machines with >64 cores run Linux with ZERO issues.

Hardware info, tips & tricks / Re: Questions Intel x5650
« on: 07 January, 2017, 07:16:38 PM »
yes you need matched pairs.

there are some compatibility issues with version 1 vs 2 of the chipset/motherboards and the CPU's they can use. I don't remember exactly what it was.

i had a couple sets of these about a year ago, they worked well. just not that great on the performance/watt compared to newer hardware.
but with prices that low it does not really matter.

i used Non-ECC in my similar setups. it was just cheaper.

i have been home brewing for 3 years now.
i started with the kits and pre-made recipes like the ones linked above.
I now brew all grain in a RIMS system and make my own recipes.
i have a 4 keg kegerator, fermentation chamber and all the other toys.

I brewed a Pale Ale last week, it should be ready in about 2 more weeks.
I still need to add the dry hops and citrus peel once the krauesen dies off.

i plan on brewing a black IPA or cream ale next. Probably this weekend


poppa, the kit you linked to does not contain an boil kettle. you will definitely need one if you don't have one.
the mega pot 1.2 10 gallon is great.
in addition an immersion chiller for cooling would be a great addition.
you will also need some kind of heavy duty burner, like a turkey fryer or banjo burner.
a stove will work, but it takes forever.

here is a tip that will same you ton of time.  There is no need to use a secondary fermentation carboy, i have left beer in the primary for over 2 months with no issues.
enjoy the brewing.

Yep
I have a week to prepare a practice run then I am going to test a full assault on the final Thor week.

For me that equates to 20 rigs, 308 cores/threads just now. so I will be looking for as close as possible to a 3080 day bunker followed by 2156 days running.... target = 5236 days

Hopefully at the end of that I will have a clear idea of the best approach for maximising this and can post my findings.

I have been playing around with multiple instances and have it figured out on windows. (i think)

I am going to try something similar and try to bunker a couple thousound days for thor final week.

i doubt it would work, but maybe if they are the exact same stepping and revision.

on OldChap's note. 
I had 2 identical SPEC ES CPU's one stamped USA and one stamped Malaysia. They would not work together, separately they were fine.

How long do they take? (and on what hardware)

1 hour per WU valued at 10 points.

Linux/WIN/Mac/ARM/Pi
