Hello everyone.

I would like to know how to configure my pc to get the maximum performance in ESP tasks.

I have a Ryzen 9 3900X (limited to 97% by temperature) and Windows 10.

Any suggestions or ideas are welcome.
(Sorry for my english, I use an automatic translator).
Thanks ^^

"Limited to 97%"...? Can you be a little more specific? Because if you're actually having temperature problems, fix that first before bothering optimizing PG performance, as doing so will only increase heat generation.

Very wise advice !

This is what I am referring to.
Energy options



At 97% my temperatures are acceptable.



What do you think? should I change something?
Thx.

Ah, I see.

For starters, leave it at 100%, no need to limit the CPU you've paid for.

As for the temperatures, they are actually not high. If that's what you get while running default ESP, you are not doing too bad.

With that in mind, it should be fine to try and boost performance. First order of business, chose between: 1- disable SMT in your BIOS; 2- Go into BOINC -> Options -> Computing Preferences -> Use at most xx% of CPUs (the first field) and set it to 50%. The 1st option will generally offer better Primegrid preformance, at the expense of lowering computing power for everything else due to disabling half of the threads on your computer. Choose one of them, don't do both.

Then, you should set multithreading (different than SMT) in Primegrid's preference page and set "Multi-threading: Max # of threads for each task". You could run tests to see what works best for your system, but a rough bet would be to set it to 4: that means that each task will use 4 cores, and you will be running 3 of them at the same time. Setting to 3 might be better, but it would have some funky interactions with CCX and CCD inside your CPU and it might actually hurt performance; same for 5. So set it to 4 and forget about it if you don't want to spend time learning what's behind that number and how to better find out.

And always remember: keep a look out for your temperatures. If they get to 90, stop, for you need to mess with your system to lower it.

Switch off core boost and your temps will drop and performance will likely increase - your clock speeds are about 10% lower than they should be for that temperature presuming you have a decent cooler.

You have 3 cores per ccx and esp can run within a ccx so you want to run 4 tasks with 3 threads each.
Then use something like process lasso to keep them within the ccx.
