You should if you want. I started on the weekend, then i found my cards refused to run the WU's when OCed for some odd reason, so for now i'm running stock.

Actually, the only project on the Pentathon that is active now is Simap. Einstein takes a load of time to validate WU's, so everyone is running it ahead of time. Einstein will officially start on the 8th.

I'm running 4 at a time with no problems on my 7970. ~36 minutes per task.

SIMAP is not a high point producing project. Really, all in all, CPUs in general dont put out much for PPD.

@Starbomba, I am thinking the same thing. Just had to lower my clocks on my 7970, but 3x isnt putting that much load on it and it is a beast of a card.

What I found very helpful is increasing the amount of simultaneous WU's that you can upload/download vs the default 2.

You can do this by creating a cc_config.xml file and entering the following code:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Code:
<cc_config>
<options>
<max_file_xfers>16</max_file_xfers>
<max_file_xfers_per_project>16</max_file_xfers_per_project>
</options>
</cc_config>

Save this into your boinc data directory (default on window 7 is c:\program data\boinc)

Also spamming the retry button is always helpful.

EDIT: 6K away from 7th place in SIMAP!

I agree. I'm running my cards @stock, and the load hovers between 80-90% with ~1 GB VRAM usage, and complete in roughly 35-40 min.

I might add that 4th WU tomorrow, those extra 2 WU's will steal one more CPU thread which is in use for SIMAP. I wonder why AMD cards demand more CPU than Nvidia, if AMD cards have more muscle for compute. thinking.gif

Seems good enough. My GTX 470 is hovering @ 90-95% on 3 WU's, 2600k is getting hammered @ 100% on my HTPC.

I've never used my VRAM on my 470 as much as i do on Einstein. I've seen it using 1150 MB. Hell, i've never used that much on gaming!

Glad I could help. Also, the 16 is an arbitrary number, you can change it to anything. I've found that setting it really high doesnt help at all though, and can take longer.
