[NEWS] Bigger -bigadv WUs entering beta - Page 8

post #71 of 114
OK great. We now have "extra big" -bigadv and still "normal big" -bigadv (that both come with the same flag). For me a 12+ core machine is a year in the future. My plan is a SR-2 (so then I would have 8 cores/8threads). It places a good bit of pressure on a guy to spend like that. Hopefully my economic situation gets better.

I should hope not... i would have to think that the vast majority of bigadvs are done by quad core i7s... dump them, and Stanford would be losing out...

Just a little update. I have completed 4 of these now and I must say these are by far the most difficult bigadv WU to run that I have seen they put the 2684 to shame when it comes to crashing a machine and creating heat. They are not very OC friendly. I have had to drop the OC on all 4 of my rigs and I am still looking for the sweet spot on 2 of them. Watch your temps when running these on OCed machines mine went up by 5C to 7C. I have a feeling there is going to be allot of lost WU's from people trying to run these on OCed machines. I lost 1 at 56% and I have not lost a WU in ages. Any way Good luck to those that chose to run these and be prepared fo drop your OC.

Added that to the OP, to give people some warning.

Oddly enough, I'm experiencing the exact opposite. The unit has been rock stable on my 2600k and my temps have actually gone down by 2-3 degrees compared to other bigadvs.

This might have something to do with it being optimized for 12+ cores though.

Most likley yes how much ram are you using on a 12 core system it uses 3GB and larger systems are reporting even more about 250MB per core. Also remember I push things to the max where most people give up I will keep going. There have been several reports of people having higher temps and previousley stable OC failing. The 2 most common errors are ERROR 0x8b and ERROR 255 both of which are fatal errors. From what I can tell these appear to really push the memory and memory channels hard on larger systems.

OK, now I am getting really confused. How is ruru with his 2600k doing work that is optomized for 12+cores like Grandpa is?

By what I read I thought there was work that was exclusively for 12+ core systems but that the work for 8 core systems was still being sent out. The server would detect what work was appropriate for you to get and would not send 12core work to an 8 core system. I ask is this how it works or not?

He is fooling the server with core count. Whether the results are going to be any good to Stanford or not I do not know only time will tell. Hey ruru what time frames are you currently getting, Avg.

I don't see why not; it's the same as an X6/i5 2500k doing the smaller -bigadv WUs. As long as they're making the deadline, I don't see why the results would be bad.

OK,we are back into that "fool the server" game. I simply do not roll that way.If Stanford still sends out 8 core work then do the 8 core work with your 8 core (or 4/4 cpu). If you want to do the 12+ work then get the correct hardware, those are my thoughts on the subject.

I say why take the 12 core work when your Sandy Bridge clocked at 4.5 (or higher) running native Linux will give you great ppd with work that is designed to go to your type of hardware? It just does not make sense.Is this a bit of the satisfaction gained going around a rule or policy?

Zodac: a while back in the thread you asked a member "do you know how much work comes from 8 core i7 folders"? (excuse my paraphrase) but you never told us how much does come from the guy running an 8 core machine (or 3 like I will be again when my AC gets here). I ask what percentage comes from 8 core folders.
