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

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!

God, i love you biggrin.gif I have a HUGE upload/download list. Thank goodness i do not have any data caps.

I will try to find a working app info XML when I get home. that way we won't have to dedicate half a CPU core for Einstein. could set it to .25 or whatever you want with that file.

That is for the amount of tasks you want to have running on a rig at the same time, and ot affects only that project WU's. Finrond's edit modifies how many workunits are being up/downloaded at the same time, and it affects any WU you attach to the BOINC client.

Yeah, you might see a slight setback in completion time, but overall your PPD will increase. The WU's on my 470 are getting finished in ~40 min, when OC'ed to 800c/1600s/1600m, but i'm getting three done at the same time biggrin.gif

I do not mind giving 0.2-0.3 threads per WU, but running multiple WU's per card really hampers other CPU-based projects.

I changed BRP to 0.33 and it got another 2 units, so now its doing 3 einsteins at once but the estimated finish hasnt gone up a single second, is that normal?

Also how do I create that cc config.xml file? I have loads units that need uploading.

Create a new text document; enter in the code; save as cc_config.xml and change save file type to All Files.

You will also need to restart the boinc manager after the file has been saved in order to enable this (I think).

well if you only have one workunit that needs to be uploaded, it will only upload 1. but if you have a whole list it will attempt to upload 16.

EDIT: If you have a whole list, try selecting a bunch and clicking the retry button on the left.

Using my crappy cpu fan, I'm hovering at 80C for crunching 12 tasks of SIMAP. When I get Einstein working on my GPUs, my CPU jumps to 85C. Sadly, I think I will have to not crunch on my GPUs until I can get this thing water cooled.

Wait a second, how many units can I crunch for simap continously on my 3770k? Im already doing 8 and cpu is at 100%, I thought that was max?

Maybe only run 8 or 10 threads when you crunch on the GPU?

It is for you, he has a 6-core (12-thread) CPU (i7 3930k)
