Its been a while since I did any crunching but decided to jump back in. Figured I would get some work done and set a bench mark with my old 3570k system before I upgrade my system once the new Intel CPU's hit the market in October. Looking to upgrade to a i7 or even an i9 depending on my budget. Pretty much going to reuse as much of my old system as I can. Mainly GPU, PSU, and drives. I am planning, at this point, to invest in a CPU, CPU cooler, Motherboard, Ram, and Win 10.
 
Still debating on refresing the case. I like the looks of the Corsair 600T but it has major issues with the front fan failing repeatedly. Rather tired of dealing with it every 2 years or so. Lets just say I have replaced it 3 times, and its dead again. Very tempted to just replace it with a Cooler Master HAF XB Evo. I like the looks and it should be a great for air cooling.
 
I have upgraded to the latest version Boinc and fired up a WCG project to start with. I'm guessing GPU Grid is having issues since I couldn't get any work even though it said there was work available. Anything new I should be aware of in the past year or so?

    Hey Khali welcome back! There's a primegrid challenge starting in about an hour if you want to dip your toes in. Don't download any PG tasks before the start or they won't count towards the challenge.

    Welcome back, Khali! 
     
    Sorry to hear about the fan issues.  Is it a known issue with that case, or would a different fan bearing be worth a shot?  I've had good luck with a couple fluid-dynamic bearing fans rated for 300,000 hours.
     
    Nothing drastic BOINC-wise in the past year or so besides some new projects popping up and others ending.

    Welcome back! Hope things are going well for you.
    We have been paying more attention to the Formula BIONC race this year and to the sprints that happen once or twice a month.
    Every sprint is a different project, chosen at random. Once a Project has been chosen, it will not be chosen again.
    Here is the link to the site. You can poke around and see where we stand and where all the others stand too.

    The fan issue with the 600T is one without a solution without a major case modification to move the HDD/SSD drive cages. The Corsair fan that comes with the case is only 20mm thick. Most replacement fans tend to be 25mm to 30mm.
     
    I been hoping around doing a few tasks for each of the projects, I used to run regularly, to see how the task times are these days. Going to set it to Prime Grid full time for the next few days. Sadly, I have confirmed my suspicion that my 3570k is way past its prime these days. Still does a good job for gaming but not much else.

    I highly recommend the i5-8600k or i7-8700k  Very sweet hexcore CPUs from Intel, and not outrageously priced.
    I have the 8600k (no HT id the big difference) on an AS Rock z370 killer sli /ac board. Very pleased.

    I partially planned out a build around a i5-8600k about a week ago. Then some one pointed out that Intel will be launching new line up in October that will probably include more, faster cores. I decided to wait and see what they come up with. If nothing else the price on the current line up will drop. So its a win win situation since I can either go with a one of the new CPU offerings or save a bit on the current line. The only down side is having to wait on Intel to do the launch.

    You may even want to look into AMD's Threadripper chips. They actually are very solid competitors.
