Note quite as far into some of the leagues you guys are, but... Not bad either for just over a year and a half now...<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3152733/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3152733" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3152733/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 173px"></a><br><br>
I'm currently working on SCC 1yr on JägerWulfe, and wouldn't mind a Bronze HSTB, bronze Beta, 180 day FAAH, and 180 day FAAH2. 1yr badges for FAAH and FAAH2 would be nice too, but we'll see how that goes - they have to put work out first <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

How many NUC's do you have?<br><br><br><a data-huddler-embed="href" href="/u/370697/WhiteWulfe">@WhiteWulfe</a> That's pretty impressive for mostly ARM devices. Were you still thinking of getting those odriods?

Yeah, surprisingly most of FAAH, Zika, and OET are from ARM devices. The ODroids I'm still debating back and forth about, always trying to decide between them, x86 SBC's and a proper full on Ryzen rig. Problem is ARM has limited project support (but my main projects all support it), Atom and other imbedded processors only do what a single Ryzen 1700 thread does according to WUProp, aaaand a Ryzen 1700 setup would cost me around $2500 if built how I want (Crosshair VI Hero, 16GB of CL14 DDR4, Cryorig R1 Ultimate, two SSD's, two GTX 1050 Ti Strix, EVGA 850W G3, all in a red CaseLabs BHX8).<br><br>
The HC1 (I think) was tempting - the one that lets you directly plug a laptop drive in - but in short order it becomes $500 CAD for four of them... One does get the hour benefits from such though, but I prefer to focus more on all out work done.<br><br>
I even have a spot in my current setup where the BHX8 would fit, if I wanted to tuck an expensive case under the desk (but off the floor).<br><br>
I'm also contemplating saying "meh" to the idea of a dedicated BOINC rig and just going full ThreadRipper, as it would make an excellent sim racing (and Elite:Dangerous) box, general surround gaming box, aaaand all the multimedia stuffs... In addition to BOINC. ^_^;;;;

Might be the wiser choice for you TBH. It would take up less space and serve as a useful upgrade for both gaming and boinc. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br>
All this Threadripper hype has me browsing newegg for an early Christmas gift..I definitely don't need another system though.

Yeah, probably the wisest choice, and a ThreadRipper setup would look downright gorgeous in an SMA8 with 64GB of Ddr4 and three graphics cards (2x 1050 Ti's and one 1080 Ti). Wouldn't give as high of a PPD/RAC per thread as Linux but on the flipside yeah, like you said.. One rig, just one rig.<br><br>
... Tempting to try and make it just one 1080 Ti (or Titan equivalent) and one 1070 or 1080 (non-Ti) as I could then have matching blocks and make it all watercooled.... We'll see, the idea behind the 1050 Ti's was to go with cards I could run 24/7 almost year round because they'd put out less heat, and also run [email protected] alongside a BOINC GPU project but nothing says I can't alternate between the two....

No need , everyone's badges listed on here <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">... <a href="https://signature.statseb.fr/index.py?teamid=1423&action=team_badge&projet=57" target="_blank">https://signature.statseb.fr/index.py?teamid=1423&action=team_badge&projet=57</a><br><hr class="bbcode_rule"><br>
My Ryzen VM hated MCM. It had a SEGV (seg fault) on <b>every WU</b> in seconds. I increased the RAM allocated, now it is getting MIP WU units. I still had some MCM WUs error out in seconds with the RAM increase but MIP works.

Well....crud, did not notice that my main rig decided to do a reboot for some reason. O well, it back to crunching WCG units.<br><br>
I know I said I get the TR up and running, but I keep winding up doing other projects (or, BOTW keeps me busy for a bit).<br>
I should have it up tonight. Just need to setup a USB with an updated Linux Mint and load it.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3154316/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3154316" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3154316/width/650/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 650px; height: 432px"></a>

<p>Great job team!! <img alt=":cheers:" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/cheers.gif" style=""></p>

<p>One of the PSUs on my main rig went belly up right after I left the house, so I wasn't much help in the race. <img alt=":eek:" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/redface.gif" style=""></p>

It was a Seasonic X760 that had been running 24/7 for the last 5 1/2 years. It is just out of warranty, but it had been modded a few times with custom cables. I should have replaced it sooner, but it just kept on trucking with no signs of slowing down. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

It is cold outside, so I fired up a boinc heater.
