What motherboards are you all using for the dual GPU setups? Mainly looking for Socket 775 mobos.

Why don't you just buy that same card your son has?

Just a quick note, the rare HD4830 works great also.

Awesome, thank you for all your help.

Earlier you mentioned leaving the max_ncpus at 1, is there any harm in having it higher? I set it back to 5 and the times are immediately back to 2-3 seconds. Just bad timing I suppose, or could it be bottlenecked and needing some extra CPU power?

I think that is the most thorough explanation of a project I've ever read. Thank you Travis, I knew there was a reason this is my favorite project.

My HD4830 times have been going up steadily in the last day or so. Running almost 30 seconds now.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I am running another project, and I switched the resource share to 40% here at MW, bumped the avg_ncpus up to 0.5. I closed CCC and it seemed to help a bit, more towards the acceptable level.

Also, is there going to be a new version for .18?

Running pretty well on my HD4830, but I would like it to be running 2 wu's instead of the 8 or so it's running currently. I have played with the app_info file and so far have had no success. Right now it's set on avg_ncpus to 0.2, and max_ncpus to 5 (quad core intel). Resource share on MW is set to 10% and it still continues to run 10 wu's in parallel. Any suggestions?


I think I got it, but man it is killing my screen response time!

How would you go about compiling a 32bit Win (XP) version?

Yes, you would probably need Microsoft's Visual C++ compiler. However, it's also possible that the Windows application uses a different source. Travis, do you have any input? What compiler, options, and source do you use?


Bump because I want the answer so I can mess with compiling.

There is nothing wrong with having an optimized app identify itself. It's been that way at SETI for a very long time.

Version info: SSE3 (AMD/Intel, Core 2-optimized v8-nographics) V5.13 by Alex Kan

Holy crap, I agree with Misfit!

So if I go through all this work, can I just change msse2 to mssse3? Will the speedup be worth it?

Running 0.02 on xp64, Q9450, 4gb RAM.

Running about 7 minutes, Milksop's version was running just over 4, so pretty close here.
