Sorry for the kind of of n00bish post, but I'd like to join the team and I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing it. I've got a pretty decent rig that I've built a couple of months ago, and it's been boincing like crazy. Just want to join the team and contribute my part! I haven't browsed around extensively to see if there are threads on this, forgive me, (very busy lately) but if someone could point me in the right direction it'd be greatly appreciated!

Within the BOINC Manager, on the "Projects" tab: click on whichever project you'd like to dedicate your points towards team OCN. Once there - usually the page will have a "Your Account" link on the left side. Within your account - to the right it will say Member of team, join "Overclock.net". OCN is International by country so make sure you click on correct one.

Thank you! I connected 3 out of the 4 projects I'm currently boincing on. For some reason was not able to connect Einstein@home, but got Enigma, Cosmology, and MilkyWay all joined up.

Welcome to the team TG! Everything is helpful to facilitate science. Boincing is great because they're are many projects for individual users to choose from that they are interested in or you (and we also) can help with F@H.

Agreed! I love the idea of distributed computing; I try to always have BOINC running when I'm not on my computer. As a science minded individual, I think it's great to contribute to research projects in this way. I haven't done much F@H yet, not sure if I want to dive into that or not quite yet. On the plus side, already ranked #380 on the Overclock.net boinc team. On the up and up! My RAC ranking isn't bad either. http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/user/detail/492475/overview Haven't done any "optimization" really yet, and I don't give BOINC full CPU time out of fear of what it will do to my CPU. I get pretty high temps as it is, even for Haswell, at my current OC.

The Skynet POGs is my fav CPU project. Its modest on the points but the run times are reasonable.. 30 - 60 mins

I limit my CPU to 8 threads and leave the other 4 threads for the GPUs.. that keeps the temps down.

Hah Sethy...only a lowly i7 4770K here,8 threads to play with not 12....wink.gif Still, running BOINC at like 80-85% CPU time gives me consistent temps of 75-84 degrees. :/ I'll have to give it a break after this Boincing event here. It'll deserve the rest. And, on another note, got Eintstein@home connected to the team, for some reason it was giving me troubles before.
