I've decided to not buy a PC right now. I think AMD might be bringing out a 16 core CPU in a month or 2 which will be interesting. Maybe I'll buy a system then? In the meantime, I'm probably going to buy a 2080Ti for my second computer 'Bake' giving me a total of 2.


Must be nice! Very jealous over here.

That makes it two of us :)

Make that three of us (well.. in terms of PG frying laptops)

Ah, forgot to mention that one.
My main account's trial has already been used up, but I did dig up my backup account- these 300$ credit should very nice for the challenge.

For anyone interested, DigitalOcean (as well as other providers such as Vultr) offer free credits for new users.

Currently, DigitalOcean grants 50$ of free credits for a month, which could be used to crunch in challenges.

Depending on how dire the situation is (CNT) or how motivated you are, here is my referral link if anyone wants to spin up a VPS and crunch away during the challenge:

Bonus: Vultr referral link - also 50$ free for first time users
https://www.vultr.com/?ref=7935106-4F

Do note however that this only works for first-time users (of an account)

Congratulations on this impressive find!

Asus HERO II Laptop RTX 2060
Core clock: 1440-1515MHz at 83 degrees, "Turbo" performance/fan preset
GFN22 (using 22 100000 200000): 375P/day
Performs better if fan is manually set to higher.

Dell XPS 15 1050Ti MaxQ:
Core clock: 950-1300MHz, 1092MHz avg over 10 minutes
GFN22 (same as above): 36P/day
Laptop was overheating a bit (power delivery) - 75 degrees on the GPU, 99 degrees on the VRMs

With most default motherboard settings, given the proper cooling and good power delivery, quite a few CPUs (including the 9900k) will still be able to turbo past its base clock.

If your CPU is running at base clock most of the times and occasionally spike to higher frequencies, I would assume that it's because some kind of limit parameter (thermal, power, or otherwise) sometimes decays enough and allows the CPU to turbo up for a moment, but the moment it turbos, it reaches a limit and immediately gets throttled.


As for the harmfulness of the temperature changes... I can only speculate that it shouldn't be much of an issue.
Consider this with laptops: during a normal workload (text editing, web browsing, starting and closing softwares), the CPU temperature varies by quite a bit because those activities do not put a constant and equal load on the CPU.

(This happens opening firefox and loading reddit on a laptop)

Been on vacation during the start of the challenge and most of my crunch boxes are away in storage during summer.

Still going to do the most I can and run TRP on a laptop or 2 and on a crippled 7700k

Aha you figured it out.
I didn't mean to make a name with any meaning when I first created it, but I've come to accept all the possible meanings people have been deriving off of it -- including "I'll wait"

Aurora could be visible in the UK tonight (Sat 23 Mar) clouds permitting of course, according to a couple different websites.

Looks like it'll be cloudy tonight in London. Shame

Latest find (PPSE) is a Scott/Tim exclusive.

Good work by the team in digging out these finds.


Congrats Scott!

server still seems to be broken, though... still hoping for a shiny 2019 badge!



I agree with you; server is still broken :)

I concur, server is broken.
