Hardware info, tips & tricks / Re: Black and White Ryzen build
« on: 11 June, 2017, 05:00:49 PM »
Have some time this morning to kill. I was able to hit 3.9ghz and 4ghz for cinebench run. No stability test here as I do not intend to crunch at this clock speed.
vcore 1.35
Dram 3200mhz 14-14-14-34
cinebench: 1735

vcore 1.38
Dram 3200mhz 14-14-14-34

Crunchers café / Re: FOOD FAVOURITES or ideas
« on: 23 May, 2017, 03:36:32 AM »
Pop, I only know how to eat .. doesn't know how to cook :)
I asked my wife (the one who cook lol) she said she used the same brand that you post
the white one. She also use Jasmine rice from Sam's club.
She said 2 1/2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice, but you have to experiment a little bit to find the fit for your taste.
She started it out with 2 cups but it was too dry for us so she add another 1/2 of a cup then it was perfect for us.

Crunchers café / Re: Anyone a Scotch drinker?
« on: 25 April, 2017, 03:03:14 PM »
I drink scotch every once in a while, still like beer better. I'd recommend John Barr blended scotch. It's the same guy that makes Johnnie Walker black label, but now he starts his own brand.
For about $20 for a fifth I'd say it's a bargain right now. Once it gets popular the price prolly won't stay at $20. Other alternatives are Old Smugglers or Clan McGreggor. Those are pretty good for the price too.

Hardware info, tips & tricks / Ryzen 7 1700 PPW comparison
« on: 16 March, 2017, 01:55:34 AM »
Ok, I had the Ryzen 7 1700 only about 3 days of running on Windows 10 Pro.
I'll do a quick comparison  PPW between the 1700 and my dual E5-2695 es V4.
While these numbers may not 100% correct but I think it should be close.
Need to run like a month or something to get the perfect numbers.
Anyway, I'll pick the points for today 3/15/2017 on both machines:

1700 (16 threads) @ 3.7ghz = 165W
WCG points = 71,655
PPW = 71,655/165 = 434 wcg ppw or 62 boinc ppw

Dual E5-2695 ES V4 (56 threads) @ 2.8ghz = 305W
WCG points = 235,038
PPW = 235,038/305 = 770 wcg ppw or 110 boinc ppw

Note : Both systems are running FAAH but the 2P is running Linux mint and the 1700 is running windows 10.
I'll finish up the cache WUs then I'll install Ubuntu and compare again... Linux to Linux.
If any1 is running a single xeon V4, please post your numbers to compare with the Ryzen.
Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 1800X's owners are also welcome  {{{}

World community grid / Re: Links to crunching resources
« on: 08 January, 2017, 04:52:52 PM »
I'm getting old..... try that again without abbreviations

I think you are asking for info on motherboards.... Don't have it, sorry

I had forgotten about doing this but the idea was that you enter details on a separate page and I do the adding to main sheet to stop others messing with the data

Added couple entries for V3 and V4 rigs

How to: Install Linux Mint then add Boinc and WCG

Why Linux? Well Cinnamon Mint is perhaps one of the easiest distro's for the windows user and some projects run more effectively on Linux.... and it is free!!

This is a how to for doing things in the graphical enviroment

Install Linux.

1. Download the Iso for Cinnamon Mint 18 with no codecs (unless you want to try out multimedia stuff too) from:

(If you want to try something other than cinnamon start here:

to put it on a bootable stick I use Rufus

when you boot from the stick the OS loads to a desktop on the left side of which is a "CD" icon which you double click to install the OS to disk/drive

Follow the instructions/answer the questions for a complete install. I recommend a simple PW for crunchers that do nothing else and select "logon automatically" if you prefer to install as a service

Once installed, on the task bar next to the time is a "shield" click this to get all the latest updates which should be level 1-3 updates

Linux Mint install complete.

Now you need to:

1. Create a World Community Grid account

2. Join the XtremeSystems team ( This section is again optional but we appreciate your support )

3. Tell World Community Grid how much of your computer it can use

Details of how to for each of these are in the first post.

Installing Boinc:

On the toolbar of your Mint 18 screen you will see the word "menu", click it

Second from the top left, underneath the Firefox icon is the software manager

Click this then enter your password.

When the manager opens, in the search box (top right) type "Boinc" then enter

Double click the first option for the complete metapackage then choose install

once done you can close the manager

Add World Community Grid:

Now go to menu again >all applications>Boinc Manager and click

Boinc Manager will now open and you will be invited to add a project so World Community Grid for that

If you want to run on your own WCG account then enter WCG username and password then it will add project, download work and start running.

If you want to run using another member's weak key then close the add project box

All that remains is to check your preferences for this particular machine by looking in tools > computing preferences

Doing work on another account

I shall use participation in the MMCM Event as an example. For this I want to use the command Line interface (click on the little black box on the toolbar)

First we need to navigate to the client program location:

Code: [Select]
cd /var/lib/boinc-client
Then if the client is already running on your account we need to detach it (ignore this if you stopped at closing the add project box above)

Code: [Select]
boinccmd --project detach
Now we need to attach to the other account (in this instance Movieman's)

Code: [Select]
boinccmd --project_attach 260577_4af837836564bc361fcd38fa6a5f090e
Job done. This rig will download work and crunch on Movieman's account

How To: Install BOINC and Join World Community Grid

1. Create a World Community Grid account (Windows, Linux, Android)
-- Go to the World Community Grid web site:
-- Follow link on top left that says Join Now
-- Fill in the form, accept the software agreement and click Continue
-- Select Projects - all except *Clean Energy Project - Phase 2* and click Continue
-- Skip the WCG download by clicking Continue - we will download directly from the BOINC website later
-- The BOINC version is newer and optionally includes VirtualBox for projects like ATLAS and vLHC (not required for WCG)

2. Join the XtremeSystems team on World Community Grid (Windows, Linux, Android)
-- Go directly to the XtremeSystems team page on the World Community Grid:
-- Click Join Team

3. Tell World Community Grid how much of your computer it can use (Windows, Linux, Android)
-- Go to your Default device profile on World Community Grid:
-- Standard Settings - uses most of your CPU and RAM after 3 minutes of no use - only when CPU is at least 50% free
-- Minimal Impact - uses half of your CPU and RAM after 5 minutes of no use - only when CPU is at least 75% free
-- Maximum Output - uses most of your CPU and RAM after 3 minutes of no use - always
-- Power Savings - uses about half of your CPU and RAM after 5 minutes of no use - turns off after 20 minutes
-- We have found that on most systems, running all the time, has no impact on your ability to use your PC the way you want to - so we pick Maximum Output. We even go so far as to open Custom settings and change "Do work only after computer is idle for" to 0.

4.1 Install and configure BOINC for Windows
-- Download directly from the BOINC website:
-- During installation we would suggest not enabling the "Install as a service" under the Advanced options

4.2 Install and configure BOINC for Android - Thanks to eddieate
-- Go to the App store and download BOINC
-- By default BOINC will only use your device when the battery is 90% or more charged to start work

4.3 Install and configure BOINC for Linux - includes installing Linux - Thanks to OldChap

5. Connect BOINC Manager to World Community Grid (Windows, Linux, Android)
-- Open BOINC Manager
-- From the Tools menu select "Add Project"
-- In the projects list on the left - scroll down to select World Community Grid and click Next
-- Enter the Username and Password of your WCG account from Step 1 above and click Next
-- You will get a confirmation that you are now connected - click Finish.
-- Once you have clicked Finish BOINC will automatically contact World Community Grid and ask for work.

* Clean Energy Project - Phase 2: if you have a high end computer and do not turn it off this is a great project to participate in. Requirements: 1 GB of RAM per task, lots of disk usage, infrequent check points. By default WCG will only send you 1 of these CEP tasks at a time - you can change that to be whatever you want from your device profile(s).

World community grid / WCG/BOINC Milestones
« on: 05 July, 2016, 05:55:39 PM »
My apologies in advance if I overlook anyone when compiling the milestone lists. Team members are free to toot their own horns here.

For newcomers, each BOINC point is worth approximately seven WCG points. The reason for the two point systems is that WCG had its own method of calculating points before it decided to adopt BOINC.

If you're reached 10m or above your stone will be bold
Ex: VietOZ has passed 10,000,000

If you're reached 100m or above your stone will appear with red + bold
Ex: VietOZ has passed 100,000,000
