If you are running MW on your CPU, are you running the optimized app?

If not you should be, it will increase your production by at least double.

I do on my main computer.. It crunch mainly Seti.
But it seems like it doesnt work as well now as it
did earlier..

MW only crunch on laptop. Not much to shout hurray for ;-)
Maybe it would help to download those optimized apps.
I`ll try it sometime during weekend.

My laptop told me it didnt like cpu apps.. It told
me in fact that if i ever tried to download such files, it
would go blue-screen Asap! It also told me that it will need
some chocolate cake to be able to crunch next week..?? ;p

(this post should be moved - its off-topic by attitude. ;-)

Since it is a laptop, I would bet it is due to heat.

If you crunch on a laptop, limit your CPU usage in your BOINC settings to 50% usage.

I would not recommend crunching on a laptop :) Who am I to talk. I have laptops that I crunch with. And have burnt up 4 of them. - the price we pay.

hehehe.. I`ll tell you when its burnt out.. And we can have a
burrial party - I mean, when a laptop has done so much great work,
it should at least be celebrated when its gone. The bad thing is that
in that momet, Im out of MW. ;p Or maybe thats the good part.. i dont
know really ;-)))

Honestly, its not that hot.. :p but ok..as you say, o wise one - 50%.
Where will That get me?? ;o

Of course i should have optimized my whole computer ;-))
Its sad to see me doing so little of the job - and let
others do the most of it. I sure would have felt better
with a desant Rac.
But until then.. I`ll try to be happy for what i got;
my slow computer - and a Great team! Because of You
guys. ;-) ( this include members in Seti who cant come in
here.. )

To everyone;

From what I can see, you have nothing to be ashamed of with your RAC. :)

Even more if we start getting some more WUs. My 3 ATI video cards spend most of their time idling.

;-o oh my.. sounds terrible! Have you tried that cake-trick Incognito told about? I would do it at once - at least you have done whats possible then. ;-))

Yes, everything is adding up, so thats super Chris - Have you pushed the
ON-button yet?? hehe

Anyhow - this is going way better than possible to belive. Today Sicituradastra is Team nr. 4 in MW by credit/day!!!!!! And in Boinc total nr.46 !! ;-D

I`ll call that OptimiZed!
Good Job!

If I tell you how much I get out of names like "PIII and P4D" I will sound like
a coconut.. so Im not going more into it.


All I read was the part; "extra credit" hehe

Well first you go here
zslip
Then click on the top centre link,
optimised CPU etc
which will show you the list of optimised apps.

The bottom centre link, Optimised GPU etc, will just take you to what seems to be a placeholder page for the next batch of optimised apps designed specifically for MW_GPU.

However, before you download an optimised app it will be worthwhile finding out some things about your laptop, like which, if any type of SSE instructions your CPU can use. Laptops generally use cheaper/less powerful/less power-hungry CPUS, and one of te ways of making a CPU that uses less power is to leave out the SSE instructions, [cheaper to build, = more profits too]. The best thing to use for this is CPU-Z. There is a link to this in the second white block in the table.

As I expect that you are running Windows but don't have a high-end ati video card, a bit hard to fit ito most laptops, you will want a client from the first block of the table, OS=Windows 32/64 bit, Category=CPU. Choose version 0.19, and click on the appropriate SSE type in the Downloads column.

OT - from you mention of cleaning it sounds like you work in some kind of holiday motel/hostel/whatever. Or do you just have a big house...?
Cheers,

PeterV

I have found that the SSE2 version works just as well as the SSE3 or SSSE3 etc.
and most computers now run SSE2

The only real difference that you need to check is if you have a Windows 32 or Windows 64. Most people run Windows 32 -


Optimizing is rather simple, once you do it a couple of times you will not want to go back to running regular apps.
