Thank you

My cc_config was correct.

I also had to connect each GPU to a monitor and extend the windows desktop.

I'm glad I have monitors with multiple inputs as I didn't want to put resistors on the dvi to VGA adapter.

Now I may have to do that if I want to use the APU engine... but i'm sure it's worth it

Also I had no errors or invalid WU for 24 on this computer, although I had to suspend/resume some WUs.

A few inconclusive but that's usual.

This is my main Milkyway machine.

But you can check the other one too :)

all my invalids are Milkyway@Home Separation (Modified Fit) v1.36 (opencl_ati_101)


I've removed that application from my preferences for now.

I finally managed to get them to work at the proper PCI-E speed and with Xfire connectors removed (don't ask me how...)

I will monitor for "never ending WU" now.

(they're still crunching 2/GPU)

i do also get never ending wu.

suspending/resuming them works, but I dot get a bunch of invalid/errors:

3x HD7950 GPU, running 2 WU/GPU


Have you tried running just one wu/gpu at a time and see if the errors still occur? Do you have an SLI cable connecting the gpu's? If so take it off and see if the errors stop. I realize that the SLI IS better for gaming, but it is NOT helpful to crunching, in fact it can cause errors. What else do you do while the pc is crunching using the gpu's? Do you leave any cpu cores free just for the gpu's to use?


hello Mickey (are you the same having help me with my BU issue ? )

This computer is dedicated to BOINC.

There's 2 crossfire cables.

There's a free CPU core.

I've noticed that in the past 2h, my GPU temp has dropped dramatically (used to reach 85C, now stable at 40C.

Even though the ambiant temperature hasn't dropped and each GPU is still doing 2WU at a time.


==================================================
I've stopped the computer and removed the XFire conenctors and restarted it.

We'll see.

Thank you for the suggestion.

(FYI I initially used the XFire conenctors as I couldn't connect each GPU to a monitor to get them to process WU)

Note: When I remove the crossfire connectors, My GPU show as connected to a PCI-E v1.1 slot.

With the Xfire connector, they show a 2.0 PCI-E bus... well except now... they still show PCI-E 1.1 and WU are taking a lot longer, and it explains the temps.

Anyway, I'm going to troubleshoot all that and post back...

Post:
use TThrottle.

You can set a max temp and Tthrottle will "throttle" down your GPU to keep it under the target.

I'm running 3GPU with a target of 80C.
Otherwise they go over 100C and go in thermal shutdown.

Thank you for this post.

I have 3x HD7950 in my crunching box and MW was using only2.

I now run 1WU on each GPU, which suits me fine, as overheating is an issue so I don't want to run more than 1 WU ATM. (but at least I know how to fix it)

<app_config>
<app>
<name>milkyway</name>
<max_concurrent>3</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>1</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.05</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

No need to restart BOINC BTW, just issue a "read config files" from the "advanced menu"
