One lonely mac on autopilot, and:

Very nice, well done.
Welcome back btw, if you're back.


Jeez, was I really gone that long :)

Starting to get toasty. My new-found supervision has resulted in all but the most efficient machines being taken offline...

I had to RMA a 6700K last year. It was retail boxed, hence the 3yr warranty. I worked through Intel, and had no issues.

Gents,

It is my understanding that Intel CPU's purchased as boxed items have an Intel warranty period lasting two (or three) years. I picked up my i7 7700k back in late October and which certainly puts it within the warranty period.

The seller specified explicitly that he was not a store and, therefore, would not accept returns of any sort and for whatever reason. The items he was selling were indeed BNIB.

Does anyone know of a (European) Intel depot for pursuing warranty claims? I know for certain that temperature was not the reason behind the demise of the CPU.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: According to the Intel warranty page, it is indeed the case that only boxed CPU's are eligible for the three-yr warranty period. My non-responsive Kaby Lake has a warranty into Oct/2021.

Edit 2: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000007375/processors.html

Edit 3: I filed a claim with Intel and will wait for feedback. I will inform the group for all our mutual benefit.

I am still on the hunt for the first one.


Not anymore. There's a PPSE with your name on it! Congratulations!

Congratulations, AA !
I also just saw 1998golfer in the result table, with a GFN-16.
Congrats, golfer !

Go AtP !

Yep, I'm now on the board! Switched over to larger numbers on all fronts now


Congrats all, I'm in the same boat. Back to swinging for the fence.

Is there such a thing as a bad work unit? Just curious.

Edit: Looks like Zim and I both inconclusive.


No bad workunits...one of you has a bad result. Most likely it is Van as his Titan has 3 more of those inconclusive units, whereas that is your only one.



Yeah, that GPU seems to have a problem.

I'm all in now, PPSE and GFN16.



Same here. I was the d/c on a PPSE on 31 January. I think I need to multithread those.

I was also listening to the HUGE fire in NJ. That was huge!


Yeah, that fire was too bad. Really really big, though (I suspect a paper factory has some fuel to burn).

The annual prime hunting fest is just around the corner.

Apparently I also have a challenge from AA, although not quite sure what the rules are.

Go Atp!


I thought the rules were that the challenge happens, and then AA buys you a beer.

On 14 December 2018, 07:07:34 UTC, PrimeGrid’s Generalized Fermat Prime Search found the Generalized Fermat mega prime:

6291332^262144+1

The prime is 1,782,250 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 10th for Generalized Fermat primes and 66th overall.

The discovery was made by Karsten Freihube (KFR) of Germany using an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 in an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU at 3.60GHz with 16GB RAM, running Windows 10 Proffesional Edition. This GPU took about 35 minutes to probable prime (PRP) test with GeneferOCL2.

The prime was verified on 14 December 2018, 14:47:41 by Andreas Zenker (Buddy) of Austria Republic using an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU in an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU at 2.50GHz 4GB RAM, running Windows 7 Professional Edition. This GPU took about 42 minutes to probable prime (PRP) test with GeneferOCL2. Andreas is a member of Team PC-Reflate.

The PRP was confirmed prime by an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz with 16GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional. This computer took about 4 hours 59 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR.

For more details, please see the official announcement.
