1) Message boards : Number crunching : BOINC Version? (Message 129320)
Posted 462 days ago by Chaotic DisorderProject donor
14 is generally considered bigger number than 4. It shouldn't be read like 7.40 being bigger than 7.14.


Yes in whole numbers 14 is bigger than 4 but not in decimals. I have never seen this convention in version labeling till now and it is confusing. Why would you make a smaller number a newer version?


That's the way version numbers typically are done.

Sometimes you'll do 7.04 if you're expecting more than 10 minor version incements, but not always. This isn't a representation of a real (in the mathematical definition) number. It's just an identifier of a software release.

Put another way, 7.4 does not mean "seven and four tenths". It means "major release 7, minor release 4". After 7.9, the next release is 7.10, not 8.0. The numbers on the left and right side of the decimal point are independent of each other. The BOINC release numbers actually have 3 parts, and the current version is 7.14.2. It's hard to mistake that for a real number.



I see... My mistake. Older software, MSDOS for instance uses decimal version numbers and in some cases it just depends on the creator. It just adds to the confusion. I guess I am just old and didn't realize that it had changed.

what motherboard are you using?


ASUS TUF plus gaming.
4) Message boards : Number crunching : Overclocking and voltages (Message 128271)
Posted 510 days ago by Chaotic DisorderProject donor
I recently upgraded to a i7-9700k and have started to dabble some in overclocking. I've just went to a modest clock of 4.5ghz, due to not wanting my temps going into the 70's.

What is funny though, I get task failures at 1.235v but everything seems stable at 1.24v

I think it's crazy that a 5 thousands difference in voltage actually makes a difference. I've went up to 1.245v now just to make sure everything is good.

Has anyone else here messed around with this chip? Kind of want to see what voltages and temps you get while running tasks here...

5) Message boards : Problems and Help : Just the mere presence of a app_config.xml limits llrSGS? (Message 127738)
Posted 527 days ago by Chaotic DisorderProject donor
Something strange is happening on my system. I'm running llrSGS and with an app_config.xml present, it only runs 1 WU on 2 cores. If I delete my app_config.xml it will run 18 WU's on 2 cores.

Is this just hard coded? How can I get it to run 36 WU's on 1 core each?

I've even tried this:

<app>
<name>llrSGS</name>
<fraction_done_exact/>
<max_concurrent>36</max_concurrent>
</app>
<app_version>
<app_name>llrSGS</app_name>
<cmdline>-t 1</cmdline>
<avg_ncpus>1</avg_ncpus>
</app_version>

Still won't run 1:1

EDIT: Wait seems to be fixed after I hit "Update"



The app name for SGS is "llrTPS" that's probably why it's not working the way you expect.
6) Message boards : Number crunching : Fastest GPU's (Message 126643)
Posted 550 days ago by Chaotic DisorderProject donor
I've done that by following the steps in this link: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?283512-How-To-run-multiple-BIONC-clients-on-one-machine-not-an-app_info-method

It makes it so each GPU is under a separate computer, then you can pick different subprojects for each one. I've only used it on Primegrid so I don't know if it would work with other projects.

Correct.

But be sure to read the note all the way at the top.


Yeah, results could be off. Just having two different GPUs in your system can skew it quite a bit. I set up 2 different instances so mine show up in different computers. It would be nice if BOINC just picked it up, but I like being able to choose different work for each one.

I have a question about the fastest GPU link.

The fastest card shows as (1.000). So if a card says (.257) for instance, does that mean it's only 25.7% the speed of that top card?

9) Message boards : Number crunching : What's wrong with my temps? (Message 126579)
Posted 551 days ago by Chaotic DisorderProject donor
Do you mean applied paste or paste tube?
Can a brand new tube bought 4 years ago contain worn-out paste?


Applied paste.

Do you know some forum thread that I could read?


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ub_00renA4

Here's a Youtube video that Linus Tech Tips is talking about and testing this. It's not necessarily the best test but it is quite a temp difference.

The paste they use is not that great to begin with...

If you were getting good temps before with your fan setup I don't think that would be your problem.

Thermal paste does wear out and needs to be replaced from time to time. Intel puts thermal paste between their heat spreader on the top of the chip and the die and that could wear out and now be causing higher temps. I personally have not had that issue but some have.

I replace the thermal paste under my heat sink usually after a year or two and I use sparingly. Using too much can cause some rise in temps.
