That not my only beanie. Got a whole bunch of them, but that one and my zodiac dragon are my favorites.

I am excited about the next pentathlon. My goal this year was to keep us from getting blown to bits in the CPU categories. I think I did that, but this team has really added to our CPU power and we were very competitive with the 2nd tier teams Team China, Czech National Team and Grid Coin. We would have to add a lot more computing power to be competitive with the top 3 teams and I don't see that happening by next year. A 5th place finish for next year would be a worthy goal.

I am not going to add very much computing power this year, but I do have plans for some extra horsepower. I would like to see an active budget boincer thread moving forward. I have an entry that I could add right now, but haven't with the build up for the pentathlon.

I have noticed that a few people have the multi P distributed computing bug, that is a great start for next year and I look forward to seeing the rigs people build.

I thought we would do better in the GPU project, primegrid. Seems like many of the teams have been adding some crazy GPU power. I was a little surprised at this.

We have to find a way to recruit more people for the team. I was thinking about some big giveaway that maybe we could get by 10 or 15 of us splitting the cost of the fastest current video card. If we were giving away a GTX 1080 for this years pentathlon, people would have paid attention. That is just an idea, but we need some hooks to recruit people and get the word out.

Someone had the idea of practice bunkering and using the tactics of the pentathlon. Maybe we should tailor our BGB events as mini pentathlons where we simply announce the projects a few days in advance and crunch only 2 or 3 projects for the BGB. I don't know is this is even possible, but it is certainly worth looking into.

Indeed, nice prizes always gets peeps attention. Reason next year I might get some done up or start fixing up some prizes this year to give away for the next one.

I do plan to build a 2P rig this year. Just have to figure out where the put the darn thing with the little room I still have. I actually have two old 2P IBM rigs, but no HDDs or RAM for them.

Was looking at those board on natex.us. I would consider selling my P9X79-E WS for one of those boards..but those server boards look like they only have x8 slots and maybe one x16 slot (running at x8) from what I see. Think my cards are only running x8 too,with only 2 installed, but I have 7 X16 slots ... a WS board with 2 sockets would be a worthy upgrade if one existed. Don't think 1KW would be enough to power it however.

Your board is just the baby brother of the 2p WS board.  I ran the Z9PE-D8 WS for 2 years with four 7970s.  Rock solid board for me.  Too bad they are hard to find now.  They are usually about $400-$500 used on ebay. :thumbsdow

Putting together the prize drawings now.  :D

Congrats again to the whole team on a great Pentathlon. :cheers:

Sweet jesus that's sexy. Water cool or PCI-E extender cables to use all those PCI-E lanes.

I.... like the sound of this. Especially given the thought of dropping a pair of GTX 980's into a 2P setup, then do a combination of Einstein@Home and POEM@Home. Are the cards overclocked at all?

Yeah, sadly the going rate on them on eBay seems to be $550ish USD nowadays....

Aaaaaand my job picked a REALLY bad time to send me away. Transformer blew out and was left with very little power, nor was i present to set anything up. At least i had no casualties tongue.gif

All in all, i feel really happy about this win. We have really came a LONG way since the beginning. Hell, i recall my first Pentathlon, running a pin-modded E6400 and a 9400 GT. Now i have more cores than i know what to do with (other than keep on BOINCing). biggrin.gif

Heck, with the newcomers i did not really think we would really stand too much of a chance, but finally snagging a medal and scoring in the top 10 rank... has been awesome.

I do have some projects for next year, like getting a 2P rig for BOINC purposes. I cannot see me parting with my 2670+RIVBE combo anytime soon, especially since i finally fixed the issue with the RAM and can now get quad channel RAM to work, but now i want to burn $500-$600 on a 2P 2670 setup for fun and giggles. Maaaaaybe, if Skylake-E is worth it, i will change setups, but so far X79 and X99 have been pretty underwhelming on my eyes, compared to all my X58 builds.

I was happy enough to be able to contribute my 4770k most of the time, usually all eight threads too (well, until PrimeGrid... And then heat kicked in, so it was back to eight cpu threads, lol).

Next year I'll have what is hopefully an armada of.... Stuff. Still deciding what I want out of it all, but I will admit for the fun of it I added my two phones (Samsung Galaxy S3, and HTC One M8) to BOINC to see what ARM can potentially bring to the table (not like I have much to lose, at least with the S3). If this works and I like what it brings to the table, I'll look into "just a few" Raspberry Pi 3's in those lovely C4Labs Invasion cases that have a built in fan.... Oh, and maybe a few ODroids or the like..... Obviously in addition to the idea of a 2P E5-2670 rig.

EDIT: Speaking of contribution and whatnot, remember folks, don't forget to check your settings before re-enabling the downloading of new tasks for a project, or adding new projects..... Guess my poor 4770k and GTX 980 will have PLENTY of work for the next while...


785 tasks in that screenshot, and by the looks of the Project tab it will take around ten days or so to crunch through all of that...

But the Pentathlon did get me to decide to stick with another project, and helped me go with a slightly wider coverage of science that will steadily get more and more attention from me as I gain more devices. Sure, it means I won't push ahead in the standings that fast for each of the projects, but I'm pretty certain with five different CPU projects and two GPU ones I have my bases covered in case one happens to run out of work units temporarily. I'm also not running GPUGrid anymore, at least during the summer months, since it heats up the place way too quickly (whereas Einstein@Home doesn't seem to add much heat, and even keeps the GPU relatively cool at 53-55C for the core at all times).... Great thing is that most of the projects I've chosen as my "main" ones run on Android and/or Raspberry Pi too ^_^
