Im consistently getting de_14 2's and 3's..

They are all pending however, and no credits are validating.

Please keep us posted, thanks!!

try using the crossfire bridges, or using a DVI dummy plug to activate the second card.

Or I should start by asking... do you have the second card hooked up to a second monitor?

why not change the granted credit for those types of WU's to 10 and watch what happens next? ;)

haha, there you go, I like that ;) ever better, make it 1

So do we all just start cheating?

Im going to make it a goal to get the script running and I will post it here for everyone once I do get it working.

Then everyone can cheat, and MW staff will be forced to do something.

PLEASE FIX THIS ERROR IMMEDIATELY
5) Message boards : MilkyWay@home Science : Screensaver (Message 35106)

Shame. Sometimes if you want to get the kids to play you have to offer them some candy.


Running a screensaver is like taking candy from a baby - it uses valuble CPU cycles which reduces the amount of data processed and therefore, means it will take longer for the project to reach its goal.


Im pretty sure the average single host cruncher could really give a $h*t less about a few cpu cycles, the fact that they are crunching at all should be enough for the project and fellow crunchers to say thanks, and maybe even think of a screensaver down the line if someone requests it..

just my 2 cents ;)

Thanks CP, amazing how quick u get that stuff out!!!

& thanks Ice! I checked Zslip to see if there was any updates before I even came here to the forums, they where there, and they worked perfect!

hey, anyone with some answers able to answer this..?
Are we going to be running the stripe 82s with the CUDA release tonight?

Are we gonna run them @ Milkyway@home or GPU.

If its on the GPU side, are WUs gonna be split between projects??


oh and
Or probably not

Quite the necessary post...

***

GPUGRID IBUCH WU's take about 220000 seconds to run on my 8600mGT

and about 50000 seconds on my 9800GT

I would put a 9600mGT around 150000 or about 42 hours

you should take a look around the forums and read why before making statements.

There doing it just to piss you guys off...

There not doing because they want too, there are many reasons, compatibility, Dave Anderson, much more.

I dont feel like I should have to re-iterate... there around.

11) Message boards : Number crunching : MW power outages (Message 22742)

Oh, i dont think soo..

I was just making reference to what he said on the home page, that it would be up soon, sometime this week.

I'm not concerned with how long it takes to get it up and running, I just like to know alittle bit of whats going on, and when it might happen!!

Oh & BTW Ice, I never thanked you for all the work you have done with zslip!! It has been a huge help with finding updates to opti apps :D

So thanks!!

@Travis!!

Thanks much for your work on keeping the server alive through these power outages!

& thanks for the updates on CUDA!! Im really excited to see it running and see what numbers my geforce cards can do :D

Thanks much Travis!

13) Message boards : Number crunching : 4 * GPU Slots! Oh My! (Message 22628)

I don't have any BUS issues, you should make sure your board is set to handle multiple cards.

Some will run the first slot at 16x, if you put two some boards will drop both slots to 8x, some will go 16x on 1, and 4x on 2.

It varies between each board.

new x58 multi slot boards run 2.0 16x on atleast 2 slots, some can handle 3, going to 4 cards will cut back bandwidth, but there is enough left to handle GPU crunching.

The 7 slot board your looking at here.. 4 blue slots, 3 black.. notice that?!

blues are 16x blacks are 8 or 4x, this mobo is setup for RAIDs, multi GPUs, anything that uses the PCIe16x 2.0 bus.

If Im not mistaken that board can even handle all 4 slots @ a full 16x.

Back to my setup, Im running a RAMPAGE formula with 2 GTX280's. They run equally, when running 2 different WUs they will vary on time and report at different times, but my daily output is almost always double what one card would put out.

I ran a 280 & 9800GTX in a p5b deluxe for awhile, that did not do as well, the first slot would run 16x fine, second to 4x, worked well back in the ATI 2 & 3k series, but not holding up today! (sold it)

Multislot boards have come ALONG way in the last few years! With the xfire/SLI on the same chipset it will only go farther now!! Thanks you Intel/Nvidia for finally putting them on the same chipset!!!!!

[edit]
Dont forget about the PSU needed for that board/multi GPU!!!! Would probably be best to run a couple 750s or 1ks in a dual PSU setup.
