@bfromcolo I guess I never looked at the projects that closely before. I assumed that the projects that showed up as pending, in manager, were the only ones that were pre downloaded, but these had been pulled days ago and are due tomorrow, so that's probably why they showed up today. Thanks for the info.
I guess 2xxx are supported. Min driver version is 440.33 which is pretty recent.

Collatz is a GPU project that gives out pretty high points. I ran the crap out of it every BGB, which is pretty much how I got so many points in Collatz.

I will throw a few GPUs at it, since I don't think I've ran Collatz in quite some time. :thumb:
Running it on my GPUs and CPUs, but just noticed CPU projects are super slow...2 projects with 3-4 day estimated completion lol

The config file is still used, and I actually had to remove and then re-add Collatz since I haven't ran it since they updated the app after the cheating shenanigans.
What is the config file? I did a new setup since I haven't run this project before. I also disabled CPU processing, because too slow.

The config file is a blank file that will ship with the rest of the project files. The config file can be used to tune the application for maximum performance. Word of warning, if you max out the performance your GPU will run very hot and be under a very heavy load.

I just crashed my system, because I used my normal max performance config and didn't think about the fact that my 5700XT is running on the stock blower cooler. Needless to say it rapidly warmed up to throttling temps, and then crashed the driver. :doh:

Here is a link to the thread on the Collatz forum with example configs. https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/forum_thread.php?id=8
There are also quite a few examples in the last few pages of our Collatz thread: https://www.overclock.net/forum/180...ollatz-conjecture-project-support-thread.html

+ virtual rep

Finally found the file on the ubuntu rig, I will have to play with this tomorrow when I have more time to monitor temps and usage.

I plugged in the recommended values for the 1070s in my ubuntu rigs. I saw a decrease in project time from around 14-15 minutes to 8-9 minutes, with little impact on GPU temps. Its actually throttling a bit because its hitting the power limit, so temps dropped 1-2c.

I used the same values for my 2060, but Im tweaking it here and there to see if it can push a little harder with the extra L2 cache and improved turing architecture. FYI dont try to run threads=9 on a 2060.........
