11) Message boards : General discussion : BOINC or PRPnet ? (Message 95761)
Posted 1829 days ago by Profile parabolProject donor
Appreciate any link in the Forum about this ! (or feedback)

(actually running 2 prpnet task and 2 boinc task without HT on 4 Core i7)

Is there any benefit of running either in regards of

- running times for a task
- CPU temperatures

My room temperatures is up to 32 Celsius without air conditioner !

And yes:
I have a watercooler installed and can adjust almost any fan settings

Thanks a lot

Hi and thank you all !

Just seen, that the 1070 will be released on 10th June.
So I will wait with the Graphic-Card and try to get the 1070
here in Thailand. Fortunately found a good online shop with
their offices just 15 min drive from my home. So maybe I have
luck and can preorder one.
Also seen, that the 1070 is consuming much less power if I'm correct.

You think 750W PSU will be enough for my new rig?
Dont intend to add much more stuff into the rig for the time being.

Sorry, should have "Goog" first, found this ,online-calculator,

Hi all of you

have not been active in crunching lately as I moved from Switzerland to Thailand because of retirement.

Did some work on my MacBook Pro to test. Did work fine, but don't want to 'burn' it to dead.

Now I'm about to build a new rig with the main purpose to run BOINC PrimeGrid in order to help the project and also to have some fun. (I like finding primes!)

The following components I've selected so far:

Processor: Intel i7 6700K
Processor cooling: Corsair Hydro H80
Mainboard: Asus Z170 deluxe
Memory: G.Skill F4-3600C17D-16GVK
Graphic Card: ASUS NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX970 4GB GDDR5
PSU: Corsair 750i 80+ Gold
OS: Win 10

I do have some skills about 'overclocking' in any area.

What do you think about ?

Thank you

You can see on my profile..
it's not hidden...
i7/860 ..
It is my 'workhorse' and had rarely problems the last 24 months
running 24hrs/all year long

doing regularely cleaning for good breathing of all the components..

overclocking should not be an issue, as all WU completed successfully

I'm a bit of disappointed with my scores of the SR5 WU's

I completed about 200 WU during the challenge..
All of them completed without error (@ least not seen in the log)
51% received a credit
49% were marked as "invalid" with no credit
running Boinc 7.0.28 on this machine

What is this about, cannot figure it out ?!

Any Idea ?

To remove any dust....
run it @ high rpm..
hopefully screwed onto desk..

but overall a very interesting solution

So, Should I stop doing tasks?


Unless you're looking for an excuse to buy a new computer (i.e., your current computer dies), definitely stop crunching.

I would have thought the BIOS would have shut the system down before it allowed the CPU to get that hot.


Yes.. i'm a bit confused as well..

@1998golfer
? from where you read those temp ?
? bios ?
? from an application ?

can you post some pictures ?

No... but look at this...from another forum..

1. Re: Is that normal temp. for stock i5-2500k?


Adolfo_Intel 25.08.2011 09:51 (als Antwort auf: szabo)
The maximum recommended temperature for this processor is 72.6 degrees Celsius, but keep in mind that this is the CPU temperature, not the cores temperature.
You do not need to worry about the cores temperature, you only need to worry about the CPU temperature, please check with the motherboard manufacturer for them to provide you monitoring software that can provide the CPU temperature, if not you can check the CPU temperature on the BIOS of the system.

Yor cpu may hold for a while..but sooner or later you will see problems coming up..

dont run it that hot !

.. remove dust ..
.. install better cooling !
.. reduce overclocking ..

etc.

greetings parabol

Hi all (with slow computation times)

try the following: (on WIN OS's)

..Open the 'Task-Manager' in Windows..
..check all the task's that actually running..
..you may find Boinc-Tasks running that you are not seeing in the Boinc-Manager..
..kill all the useless task here..

They eat a lot of resources and slowing down all processes

I described that behaviour already in another thread..

Happy crunching .. Parabol
