Message 37105 - Posted: 17 Jun 2011 | 7:07:05 UTC

Spent some time overclocking. Got a nice low voltage, low temp at 4.4 Ghz. I had shut down BOINC prior to the work. When I rebooted, all tasks had errored-out again. Only lost about 50 hours of work this time.

Now on to sleuthing this problem....

What versions of Boinc Manager is everyone running? I've got the relatively new v.6.12.26. Could this be an issue?

Message 37108 - Posted: 17 Jun 2011 | 10:42:20 UTC - in response to Message 37105.

The Mac is on 6.10.58. My other machine booted under Ubuntu is the same, but under Windows it is 6.10.60. I remember last time I did that [Windows 7 HP], I got a message about a 6.12.?? being available.

Lost work is a drag. Are new tasks all erroring too, or just the ones in progress at the point you shut down?

There are posts here and there advising that when rebooting the box, it is best to explicitly, manually, shut down BOINC beforehand, rather than just letting it get taken down as part of the reboot/shutdown of the OS. It sounds like maybe you did do this though, and either way, I don't know how much real evidence for or against there is regarding that advice.

Running 6.10.58 and 6.10.60 on my systems.

However, I finally ran out of luck with the gpu system. The poor little 250 watt ps that was running both my gpu and system finally said enough last night. So now I'm in a rush to find a power supply before the challenge. I may have also trashed my hard drive.

Looks like I will be using most of the day getting my pc back up and running if I can get all the parts I need.

as they say over here... CRAP

4.4 Ghz is insane, water cooled or not.

Did you downclock/ lower steppings on your memory?

I'm going to re-quote myself..
4.4 GHZ is insane.

Caravaggio: Yeah, always manually shut down BOINC before implementing any type of overclock/downclock. However, the error could have occurred after the overclock to 4.4ghz. So, who knows.

You can run all 6 cores, crunching six TRP LLR w/u's at the same time, at 4.4 ghz? TRP's will really really exercise your memory's ability to dissipate heat. Also, Prime95 stress tests will also expose any memory/cpu errors...

What are your temps when running at 4.4ghz?

Message 37118 - Posted: 17 Jun 2011 | 17:50:27 UTC - in response to Message 37113.

Hey Team-- Appreciate the feedback. I had explicitly shutdown Boinc before entering the bios to overclock. BUT, I had BOINC as a startup process. I have since gone into msconfig and removed that from startup. At least I want to remove that variable to see what happens. Interestingly, Windows pushed out another update a few hours ago. I haven't rebooted, as I'd like some tasks to complete first.

As for overclocking, 4.4 Ghz is a reasonable OC for an i7. I ran Prime85 for some hours and all is stable. I'm running all 8 cores with wu's, with temps between 51-53 degrees C. Same temps with Prime95. Downclocked the memory from 1800 to 1333.

What is interesting, in the few hours that I slept, there are 8 new wu's running in high priority status, even to the point it is ignoring the GPU. I have the boinc setting to always use the GPU. Each of the 8 wu's is a 400-500 hour estimate to completion. Crazy. My Seventeen or Bust task, which was huge, only took 140 hours.

I'm a little perplexed. Can I roll-back to an earlier version of BOINC? Neo, all is stable at 4.4 it appears. Seems something is happening at reboot or start-up. It would only take me a few minutes to take the CPU back to, say, 4 Ghz, just to see.

Ok, for the strange GPU anomaly. It wasn't running the GPU at all. The setting in under the Activity menu option in Boinc was set to always use GPU. Toggling back and forth between GPU options didn't help. While monitoring temps with HardwareMonitor (HWM) something seemed amiss. The temps for the GPU were not idle temps. They were as if the GPU was running at 80% load. I went back into computing preferences under the tools menu, and the 'use GPU while computer is in use" had been unchecked. I know for a fact I hadn't changed that. The GPU was running when I went to bed.

Ah the mysteries. I tempted to roll back to a previous version of Boinc. Might even take the CPU down to 4 Ghz, just to eliminate variables.

I exited the boinc client. Reset my cpu to stock settings. Rebooted. Errored-out again. Tried to find a previous version of boinc but can't find one. Some of the Cullen llr tasks showed that they would be complete sometime in September. The estimate dropped by 500 hours over the last hour or so. But they are still indicating another 1300-1400 hours to completion. Other wu's seem to be normal on other cores.

Oh well. Going to check drivers, maybe roll-back some of the unwanted windows updates. I'll be off the 'grid' part of the time this weekend.

Cheers and happy hunting.....

I think one should not put any faith in, nor worry about, the "estimate to complete" that is shown in the BOINC manager. Do your own ETC by reading the elapsed time so far and dividing by the portion complete. For PrimeGrid at least that seems to work well. The Manager makes it's guess based on the longest actual completion time it has seen recently, with small incremental adjustments downward if subsequent units are completing faster than that. At least that's the description I've gleaned from the boards and seems to have been supported by my observation; team, feel free to correct me if it's actually BS. But anyway my point is that if BOINC got confused due to a glitch at your o/c and/or startup configuration, your ETC will be affected for a while.

I was at 40/100 on the o/c with a 2600K and just today bumped to 41/100 (yes, I *am* a chicken). Are you bumping the BCLK? Everything I've read about Sandy Bridge says "don't do that". The "overclock tuner" on my mobo (asus p8p67 pro) set BCLK to 103 but I set it back to 100 by hand.

Rick,

Good luck with your rebuild. Hope to see you back in the hunt soon! We all know the PSU isn't a sexy part of the machine but it sure is an important one :-)

Thanks Gary. After spending a full day I finally got it up but not running real well. Had to install vista instead of xp due some blue screen of death issue with the pci.sys file and the pci-e slot.

It's running but keeps backing off the gpu shaders..

Trying to figure it out before the challenge.

d/c the gpu memory? Maybe something thinks there's a heat issue? You probably already tried that... just a WAG, anyway...

The XP issue feels like a BIOS/XP incompatibility issue or incompatible video driver/XP service pack issue to me. Kind of recollect a similar issue once. What service pack on XP were you running? No Vista experience here.

Good luck.

Thanks Gary. The BCLK is set to 100. I have an ASUS board as well, and I remember the BCLK was set to 103 at default.

Caravaggio:

Don't know if this will help, but, here goes.

I had a BE 555 Phenom II x2 3.2ghz that I had unlocked the two additional cores on. I ran Prime 95 for about an hour, no problems. But, when I ran BOINC proth llr's, all four cores, my computer would reboot.
Turns out, I was only able to run 3 of the 4 cores at 3.2ghz.... for some reason boinc proth llr's would cause some error my system didn't like.

Never dealt with i7's though...just AMD.

Neo: Did you underclock to see if it would run all 4 cores? Prime95 for an hour seems like it should have exposed an unstable core.

I hate these silly contraptions. Hope all of you had a great Fathers day (if observed).

Finally got things somewhat stabilized but have lost 200+ seconds per wu on the pps sieve. Not sure how that will affect the CW's.
