1) Message boards : Number crunching : 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing Challenge (Message 131119)
Posted 365 days ago by HøstboProject donor
Curious if it's time for AMDs latest Ryzen 3rd gen of Zen 2 to be included in the information or will there be more testing needed before conclusions are reached?

The 16-core 3950X is not released until September.

Just in time.
4) Message boards : Number crunching : how many gpus do you have and the model (Message 128469)
Posted 472 days ago by HøstboProject donor
In use, but disabled until GCW-sieve ends:

AMD RX480 (10 min for PPS-sieve and 2h10min for AP)
AMD RX460 (23 min for PPS-sieve)
AMD RX550 (40ish minutes for PPS-sieve)
Nvidia GT640 (50ish minutes for PPS-sieve)

In use but not crunching
Nvidia GT320 (3h for PPS-sieve).

Planning to use as display:
Nvidia 8400GS, passively cooled, 24h plus loose change for PPS-sieve.

Ever since AP got optimized, it makes no sense to crunch that on older cards, planning on GFN-19 for the future.

I think when you have large tasks that validate quickly, your RAC get bigger for a while, then you crunch subprojects that do not validate as fast, your RAC will drop since no task are reported.

Lately, I've seen my RAC increase and pending GCW-sieve tasks drop since everybody is hunting for their next badge. I had to make sure my machines were online, just in case...

I can't find the thread, but JimB confirmed May 1 or 2. You may have some leftover tasks after that but I wouldn't count on having enough to hit your Jade badge.

Ouch, not good. Do you have multiple machines where you can download 3.5-4 days worth of cache? Perhaps disable GPU computing for a slight bump in CPU performance?

This guy was have problems with temps on an i7-4770. https://youtu.be/fqMbQVVmIp0?t=475.

There are tools for an easy delid like the Delid Die Mate 2 by DerBauer. Should you use liquid metal, it's important to protect the SMDs with something like clear nail polish. Normal thermal paste requires no such protection of the SMDs. You also mentioned bad temps your Noctua NH-L12......

Regarding your RAM, I don't think there would be any perceivable performance improvement - from 9.6 ns to 9.1 ns. I don't know if four Haswell cores require that much bandwidth, however the lower the CAS, the better, so you should be good.

Maybe someone more knowledgeable can chime in.

The CPUs are pretty much the same. Do not replace your i7-4770K, you'll see it has more cache which is highly beneficial. If anything, disable hyperthreading in your BIOS which you should be updating if you are comfortable doing that. Last BIOS was in 2015 so I'd wager it has had time to mature.

What's the CAS latency of your current RAM sticks versus the ones you're looking at.

Have you looked into delidding your processor to replace the thermal interface material on the actual die? This will definitely fall into the enthusiast category.

I would really set your h80i to exhaust air OUT of the case instead of it sending it back in over the CPU. Water cooler EOL may also be coming soon?

I feel I see a sticker on the top fan, double check if that one is intake or exhaust.

Your build seems a little dusty, I'd work on the cable management situation. If you've got extra paste, repaste the GPU too.

Personally I've been using Noctua U12S for i5-4670, i5-4460, i5-4440S. Nothing but good temps in the high 50s C to lower-mid 60s C at low-noise fan option.
