Just saw that later this year they will be doing a 5 day PPS LLR challenge.
That is certain to raise the temperature in this house.

The next challenge is just around the corner. I'm planning on moving all the cores available over to the challenge and maybe even find a prime this time.

Also, Neo and I are planning on doing the No Primes Left Behind rally April 4-11 on port 9000. The easiest way to run the wu's that I've found is to put it in the prpnet.ini file and run it from there. The server info is

server=NPLB_9000:100:1:noprimeleftbehind.net:9000

I changed mine to read server=NPLB_9000:100:2:noprimeleftbehind.net:9000 so I get a wu cache of 2 at a time. Might up that to 5 for the rally.

There's some manual stuff you have to do like post a message to the thread http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=10826 to let them know you are on team Aggie The Pew and register.

Anyway, figured I'd say something in case anyone else is interested.

See this thread for more info if you'd like http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=3217

Go team :)

The SG challenge is drawing near. I've finally been able to get Boinc up and running on 2 stubborn systems so I will be able to add another few cores to the challenge.

In case you didn't know there's a new Boinc version 6.10.60 and it was using that new version that helped me get the systems up and running.

Happy hunting

I find it amusing that Team AtP, with its relatively small contingent of actual humans (plus associated friends of other genus) is currently ahead of teams such as "Intel Corporation" (one would imagine they have some cores to spare) and indeed entire countries such as "Canada" and "Romania".

Of course the stats have us trailing some pretty serious looking groups (names withheld). I tend to dismiss those numbers as "statistical bias" or "experimental error". :-)

Looking forward to the next challenge (CW sieve) in a little less than three weeks, my first full challenge as a team member. I'll have all the cogs, gears, pulleys, and pistons on the GTX 570 lubricated well in advance.

Yes indeed it is one of the funny bits about the team. I'm not sure how well we will do in the forthcoming challenge because we have relatively few GPUs.

Mind you back in Nov 10 the team was me and was scoring maybe 3000 credit a day.

We were in about 120th place by credit and 100th by RAC.

ahh the lucky folks with those shiny 570s :) I'm just happy to have my 460.

I think we might be able to sneak into the top 50.. maybe

so far this team has proven to be quite resourceful each and every time and even more important, we have fun doing it.

Tim - I think Aggie would be really proud right now

edit: I fully expect to have Gary, Mark and Neo smoke me in the next cpu challenge what with all those horses they have :)

Tim - I think Aggie would be really proud right now



Aggie always regarded idolatry as her due. She'd have expected nothing less.

More ordinary mortals like me would rightly be pleased and proud.

edit: I fully expect to have Gary, Mark and Neo smoke me in the next cpu challenge what with all those horses they have :)



:-) Would be happy to help you get more horses! I only added my two new boxes last week because i was able to get the cost down to around $350 to build and still have a 1090T X6 processor and was able to overclock. sadly though I'm really tempted to do 1 more...although I really don't need any extra heat generated in here :-/ I have enough already.

The boxes have no GPU's though. I'd like to add a small like 450 or something to them..but idk that my PSUs could handle it.

Maybe I'm just an optimist but I think we might just do pretty good on the upcoming challenge for those of us who choose to participate.

Tim, the team has come a long way from when I first joined and it's really great to see all the members!

There are some threads about an upcoming challenge on the 20th. How do these work? For 24 hours we just devote all cores and GPU to GV Sieve? Count me in.

Also, I had overclocked my 2600k to about 4.7 Ghz stable, but the core temps were running a tad hot under load. I just backed it off to out-of-the-box speeds as I didn't have time to tweak. I'm guessing I could get it to 4.5 Ghz with temps that wouldn't keep me up at night. Would that make a significant difference on a challenge and Primegrid, or is the GPU really the most important factor?

PG has a challenge about once a month on different projects. This next one is the CW sieve for 24 hours. It's mainly a gpu challenge since the gpu's run them so fast. However the choice to added cpu cores is totally up to you since all wu's finished within the challenge period count. I personally will run both cpu and gpu since it's only a short challenge this time. The other thing to remember is that only wu's that start / finish during the challenge period count so you have to make sure to clear out all cache on the project and get new wu's at the start.

I overclock my gpu quite a bit but not my cpus. Overclocking the cpu's would of course help during a cpu based challenge such as the pps coming up later but not at the expensive of ruining your system.

Just so you know, our little team has done much better than others have expected :)

Yeah, just to echo what Rick said, it can be a little tricky at the start of a challenge. Usually there is a post from one of the forum moderators a few days in advance with some strategy about how to start efficiently. The key points are:
- WUs have to be issued after the start to count... in progress, or already in your cache waiting to start at that time do not count. So, have an empty cache and "allow new tasks" right after the start.
- WUs must be reported before the finish. So, do an "Update" right before the deadline.
- Do not put any PG WUs in a "suspend" state, or you won't download anything new (at least, not without some serious trickery). It is okay to suspend other projects (e.g. SETI, Collatz) though, if you want.

Obviously all of this is complicated if you can't be sitting at the keyboard at the start and the end.

As for the o/c issue, on the upcoming challenge, the GPU is what really matters. A 2600K pushed to the limit can't compete with a gtx570 at stock (cpu WUs do count in the challenge; just not as fast). I have that identical setup (almost... I dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows) and my CPU is at 4.0, GPU stock. Temps are fine. I'm *slowly* nudging things up... I want 100% stability and like you the ability to sleep :-)
