Some people have 30 PCs going for 1000 days & haven't found any ;). Luck is part of it, but there are also the areas of forwarding mathematical conjectures & the points/badges aspects to persue & gain enjoyment from. Primes are the cherries on the (albeit rather large) cake.

Primes of the size we search for here -- even the smallest and easiest to find -- are very rare and difficult to find. This is a project that requires a lot of patience.

Over the years I've crunched 38925 PPS, PPSE, and PPS-Mega tasks and found 0 primes, although I was the double checker on three.

I've also crunched 20801 SGS tasks and did somewhat better: I found 1 prime, and was the double checker on two more.

Primes are hard to find. Even the "easy" ones.

I see there was actually one hit, but as double-checker.

Quickly looking at the active computers, if you want to increase your chance of being the 1st prime finder, you should run at zero cache in boinc. First to report gets the prime, so you don't want units sitting around waiting for any significant time before they're processed.

Also it is unclear if, on the Intel systems, how many cores are active at a given time. Hyper-threading doesn't give any benefit to LLR and it will just make things run slower per task (roughly speaking you run twice the tasks for twice as long - no benefit). Running tasks quickly is beneficial, so if you want to leave HT turned on, only run as many units at once as real cores on the system. An easy way to set this is to set in boinc to use 50% of CPUs. I would guess from the run times this is the case as they do seem rather long given PPSE units are amongst the shortest CPU units. Run times are under 10 minutes each on my faster Skylake 4.2 GHz systems. The i7-4790K system seems to be reporting as running at 4 GHz so I would expect unit times on that to be close but a bit slower than mine. The Xeon at about half the clock should then be about double that time.

I don't have any modern AMD systems but similar might apply for different reasons. I understand their structure is there are two integer cores per module, but only one shared FPU per module. LLR tasks are FPU heavy, so in effect you only have half as much power as you think. I don't know if there is a similar optimisation for that.

Hi, sorry to jump in on this thread, but where is the setting for putting the boinc cache at zero?

I believe I was the OP's double-checker for their 2/14 prime find. My first for either.

Hmm. Not seeing that. I have 7.6.22 for Mac. I have "computing preferences"
under "Options." But not seeing the same language you described, however.

You can change settings through this site, in your account area under "When and how BOINC uses your computer". The network section at the bottom indicates how often and how much cache you want, which guides boinc on how much to download. So just tell it you are always connected and don't need extra cache.

Note if you do change it in the client, it will override the server settings.

Changing your resource share, in your venue, to zero has the same effect, you only crunch one unit at a time and then get another one, BUT it only works if you do NOT also have another gpu project with a higher priority.

Planning on getting a used Dell R820 to see if the number get any better. 4 cpus.
Maybe a Dell R720. 2 cpus.

I already have a dual AMD 12 core (Interlagos 24 total cores) computer but AMD cpus are slow with Primegrid.

I also have a dual Intel set up with 8 gpus but it's loud!!

Let's see what happens in a couple of weeks.
