Well now, I can't believe I over looked this thread.
 
With all that being said about my personal goals, I am more than willing to stop what I am doing and jump into other projects when the team needs me for contests or some other kind of goal. Just give me a heads up and I will be there.


Welcome!


BTW... You did not overlook this thread. It was not stickied, so I changed that this morning =]

Whew... thank goodness for that AB!  Welcome again Khalifrio... there are a lot of reasons or motivating factors for what we do for many of our team members.  Whatever the reason is I'm just glad to have you all on the team!
 
Crunch'em if you got 'em!

Hey guys, just started doing this.  Also doing the Folding@home.  My two laptops will being doing the crunching and my desktop will be platooning between folding and crunching.  Glad to be a contributor.

Welcome, Grey_Beard! Hopefully you'll enjoy the wide variety of projects and work types here. If you have any questions, just ask. And enjoy the crunch!

None of us is as strong as all of us.

Only if that cookie gets me bonus points while crunching. Dark side? Princess Leah told me this was the Force.


Thanks for the welcome message guys.

I wouldn't say I am necessarily crossing over to the dark side, but I am at least taking a look at it  Basically, I am putting some GPU work in while waiting for core 17's to come back in stock over on the folding side.
 
Einstein@Home intrigued me, so I got it all up and going as my first crunching project. After running it for a few hours, I do have a question. Is it normal for the GPU to be very underutilized? It started running at a constant 50% load, and now is constantly bouncing between a 2% and 47% load. I am not sure if this is a limitation of the project, or something is set up wrong in my settings? As I said before, this is my first time crunching, so I am not sure what to expect. I just assumed it would run my GPU harder than this. The CPU, on the other hand, continues to plug right along as expected.
 
Glad to be here, and may be around this side more often, depending on the future situations.

Yes, some BOINC projects don't fully utilize your hardware like folding does.  On the Einstein website you can go to Your Account -> Einstein@home preferences and change the gpu utilization factor.  1 is default, 0.5 will run two tasks per gpu and .33 will run 3 tasks, etc.  I have run 0.5 without any problems to better utilize the gpu.
 
Oh yeah...and "welcome" to all our new teammates!!

Just started Crunching a few days ago.  I'm new at it.  I joined the Evga crunching team.  So far just trying out the World Community Grid, signed up as Kopius.

Welcome to all you new peeps. If you have any questions feel free to ask. The Lord knows I asked a bunch when I first started out with Boinc. As far as that goes there are a few things I am still working out four months later.

Hey all... Some of you all might have seen my posts over at the F@H forums. I have my main gaming rig here that sits idle while I am at work quite a bit because I built a new machine with a 770 that handles all the points I need for F@H. So since these 570's aren't real good with the F@H thing, I thought I would try using them for crunching. 
 
Currently I am unemployed so I have been spending more time at this computer searching job posting boards and I was hoping there is a way in the BOINC manager to tell which GPU is assigned to which task? There are 2 instances of GPUGrid running, but it's messing with my desktop. I had this problem with F@H and I was able to just change settings for my display card and the other one just crunched on. How do I do that with this system?
 
Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks
Cowboy

Welcome to the crunch Cowboy, and best wishes on your job search!
 
There was a recent post on how to send project tasks to different GPUs.  Also, here's a link to the many flags available in a BOINC cc_config.xml file.

Hello guys, I just left my old POGS-team SETI.Germany to join 
crunching @ EVGA. Thanks again to Orange_1050 who invited
me (at that time SG-member) to your POTM-challenge.
My favorite projects are POGS and WCG. See you in this forum
and the next challenges.

Hey everybody! Been folding/Crunching again for several months again now, was f@home for a while but joined BOINC in May of this year after massively upgrading my systems and have pretty much switched over to using it completely! Love the space/science projects and have now dedicated most of my systems to POGS and PRIME (as you can see below). Not bad for 3 months :)
 
Gimme some love with a +1, I could always use more power for the benefit of science! Now crunching for Team EVGA!

Re: Welcome all new members to Crunching@EVGA! *Please report in* 2014/08/20 05:07:49 (permalink)
Thanks to a prod from bcav I've moved forward, slightly, from just "thinking about it".
Now in the inquisitive investigation stage. Glad to see many of the usual suspects here too.
Bonjour
Don't really know what resources I'll be committing yet. I guess part of that, as AB says, is down to the projects I'd like to contribute to. So maybe another general prod forward would be appreciated.
Hardware -
My hardware currently folding that may switch to Crunching - got two G34 rigs folding -bigadv (64-core & 48-core) which i may switch over, depending on what happens when/if -bigadv stops. - got 3x670s and a 780 rig which are currently getting ambushed by core15 projects (the apparent mis-match of projects/hardware/reward is annoying).
I also still have a few 4P socket-F boards (retired after -bigadv core limit increased) that could also be brought back into play.
But I'll be moving house sometime soon, maybe only for the shortterm - can't say atm, so hard to commit anything yet.
Project preference -
I'm a sciency kind of chap and am looking to contribute to our understanding of the natural sciences and the betterment of humanity -ish. Projects such as SETI, in my mind, do not fit into those categories (though I won't criticise others that feel to the contrary). And while I'd love to find a prime number, that's more my ego talking
Feel free to pose suggestions - I'll start a new thread to avoid ambushing this one.

obsidian black - Asus X99 RAV Ed 10, i7-6950X, 3 x Titan X pascal, 3x8gb Ripjaws V ...

There is a limited number of things for GPU crunching, but if you want to stick to diseases GPU grid is a great start and World Community Grid has that and clean energy projects. As for the sciency your pure processing power opens you up to a great deal like LHC @ Home (The Large Hadron Collider), and climateprediction.net has some huge projects that would fit your bill quite nicely. Hope I gave you a prod in the right direction.

Welcome all the new folks, and window shoppers =]. Today I bring you a tip to help you get started..........
 
There are a few options that I find comforting for me...
 
If a person wants to gain some points and fast... Run PPS (Sieve) (A PrimeGrid GPU project, not the CPU version). On A single GTX780 I get about 550,000 PPD on that. I hope to get another 780 once the new GPU's come out so I can run a pair of them.
 
Now I bounce around with the GPU for different projects, but under most circumstances that is a project that is running most of the time. Then I switch projects with my 12 cores my i7-3930k has with all the other CPU projects. Every few weeks I switch from one CPU project to another... So I can chase Badges and or help teammates in a need or contest.

Good tip Afterburner! With a GPU you can rack up some nice points with Prime Grid, GPU Grid, or Collatz. I also jump around with my CPU. It depends on if there is a contest going on or if I have a personal goal I want to hit with a certain project. Then there is the team Project of the month, I try to run that for a bit of the month if not the whole month. Some months I just use my i7 laptop for the PoTM and put my i5 on something else. I'm not one to set a project and let it run indefinitely. I want to try them all out but I always go back to my preferred Bio/Medical projects sooner or later.

Ok, you talked me into it. Some fracas with my fellow countrymen a cause for concern, apparently. On it.

You are more than welcome BadBertie  
I'm sure you will find it most interesting to be able to have the freedom to choose among a wide range of projects.
It will be an honor to have you crunching with us
