Message 149687 - Posted: 26 Mar 2021 | 18:24:28 UTC

I had been doing BOINC & PrimeGrid for a long time (1999 & 2015, respectively), but switched to FoldingAtHome for the last year, for obvious reasons. During the same year, I did upgrade the PSUs and GPUs in most of by boxes, so now I have the following. I am interested in switching back to PrimeGrid for a while to see what they are capable of. For that, I am wondering what projects I should put into my "PrimeGrid Preferences" to peg all my CPUs and GPUs at darn near 100%. During my absence from PrimeGrid, all projects progressed, and possibly new ones got added, so I am not sure how their computational needs changed. Anybody can give me the top few most CPU+GPU power hungry projects that will supply a constant stream of WUs? I am much less interested in maxing my BOINC credits or having better chances of finding primes per unit of time; I am more interested in maxing the use of my compute capacity and power supplies consistently over days/weeks, as sort of stress-test of my entire system, from cards to PSUs to breakers to incoming power service to A/C. Thanks in advance!

Here is the hardware...

From a purely power draw and heat creation perspective I would recommend the following:

CPU: SGS, PPSE, and PPS will give you the largest power draw and highest heat output as long as you are running one task per core.

GPU: The new WW project, AP27, and GFN22/DYFL will place the most power draw and most heat output on the GPUs.

Thank you!

So, you are recommending that I turn off HyperThreading on the CPUs? And, limit those projects to using just one thread per task by setting "Multi-threading: Max # of threads for each task (Only applies to LLR, AP27, and WW CPU tasks)" to "1"?

And, with "PPS" you mean just the PPS, or the category including PPS-DIV and PPS-Sieve, too?

And, with "The new WW project", are you referring to "Wieferich and Wall-Sun-Sun"?

Thanks!

You can either turn off hyper threading on the CPUs or set the BOINC manager to use 50% of available CPUs. Then on the preferences page you would set the multi-threading setting to "1"

With PPS I mean just PPS and PPSE.

Yes, I am referring to Wieferich and Wall-Sun-Sun
