    Rocking ATM!
    Running for the last week or so, the Z690KEP is only on for 12 hours a day.
    Not so sure why the 3090KPE is doing so bad.

    The competition is pretty rough out there.

    Surprised no one here has hit a prime yet
    Theses are two of the subprojects with a good chance of finding one.

    I picked up an Asus X299 Rampage with an i9-7900x ten core ddr4 4000 memory and got it fired off in time and still having a hard time staying in the top 50.
    First Rampage since my x58 rampage
    Nice board with all the bells and whistle’s

    MB and CPU came with an EK Monoblock for 280$, 16gb mem was 60$ from another seller. 340$ for all that.

    I think the motherboard was more than that alone when new.  ROG Rampage VI Apex
    I ordered another set of Patriot Viper steel ddr4-4000 16,16,16,39 ultra low latency to go with that set.
    Paid 50% more though had to go new. I'll have 32gb for the twenty threads.
    Not bad for 440$

    We finished in 9th place overall with a packed field around us. Nice job everyone!
     
    Great finds, Bill. I was looking at an upgrade for my Ryzen 7 1700, but can't justify the cost to switch from AM4 to AM5 and the Ryzen 7000. That'd mean CPU & heat sink, motherboard, and memory. I could just go with a used 3000/5000. That hardware upgrade itch...

    Yep, good job holding off [H] at the end there. 
    I was able to stay one step ahead of Opolis this time around.
    Another great job from the two Bill’s.
    Good start to the PG Challenge series this year with 152 teams and 840 individuals posting results.

    TDP starts in February. Will see how that goes

    Im surprised we didn’t get a prime this challenge. I thought for sure one of us would get one at least.

    That was Odd.

    I looks at some members and the have 1 Prof Tasks in 80 Main Tasks.

    Found on my RTX 2080 Ti KPE Card 23 Jan 2023 | 20:01:17 UTC Genefer 17 Mega v4.02 (OCLcudaGFN17MEGA)
    Dear Primefinder,

    Congratulations! Our records indicate that a computer registered by you has found a unique prime number. This computer is running BOINC, is attached to the PrimeGrid project, and is assigned to the Generalized Fermat Prime Search n=17 Mega (GFN-17-Mega). What makes this prime unique is that it's large enough to enter the Top 5000 List in Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database.
    Since you have auto-reporting selected, the following prime was submitted on your behalf:
    Added 134858 : 128520182^131072+1 (1062860 digits)
    This prime was found on this workunit which will automatically show as a prime result after verification by the Largest Known Primes Database.
    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us and we will surely resolve any problems.
    Once again, congratulations on your find! Thank you for participating in PrimeGrid.
    PrimeGrid staff
     
    Looks like a lot of Primes are now showing up from this event.
