BOINC Pentathlon 2019

Seems like the easiest way for most people to help out is in the Marathon.

 

This involves downloading BOINC, selecting the "World Community Grid" project, and then selecting the sub-project "OpenZIKA".

 

1. Download + Install BOINC (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php

2. Open BOINC and click "Add Project"

3. Select the "World Community Grid" project, and then click on their website url. (https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/discover.action)

4. On their Website, click "Join Now" at the top left or right depending. Enter your information and Register.

5. Once presented with the Sub project selection, choose "OpenZIKA" and click next. It will download a program, but you don't need it.

 

6. Go back to the BOINC app and click "Next >". Login with the World Community Grid account that you just signed up for.

 

Your BOINC app will now benchmark your system, and then start running. 

 

BUT, you still need to set your team to the LTT forum one.

 

7. Navigate to the team selection page, and login if you aren't already (https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms/team/viewMyTeam.do)

8. Type in "LinusTechTips" in the "Contains:" field.

9. Click on the "LinusTechTips_Team" result that shows up. Once the page loads click "Join Team".

 

You will now be BOINCing for the LTT team :D

 

This is the easiest way to help out the cause, but there are more beneficial / advanced ways to do so if you're interested. Refer to the OP for more information.

 

Message @Ben Quigley if you need assistance.

Indeed, great job everyone.

 

xD I can't even get to the site to screen grab the final results.  Well, once I can get to the site, I will post the screeny.

 

Also, if anyone want to be on a list to be pinged next year when the BOINC Pent comes up, just leave a post here or message me.  I will get a list done up to keep on hand for next year.

 

Along with reworking and reverifying some guides for BOINC setup with some tips added.

@Spotty

@Ithanul unfortunately I had some BOINC client issues that I couldn't resolve before the event started so I didn't participate in the event.

Great job to everyone who participated. This was actually pretty fun to do, though I can't say I'll miss my PC sounding like a wind tunnel haha 😅 I wouldn't mind doing this again next year.

I'm interested in doing this again next year. By then I should have some more hardware I can throw at it.

Time for our whiskeys? 

I went out partying with my best friend so I wasn't here to watch the timer hit 0. Currently 3:51AM, and I'm 7 hours late. I still failed to pick up that whiskey I wanted but I've got some Fireball sitting around it'll have to do.

 

A toast to 10th place. If we still have it that is I don't know haven't checked.

yep, still tenth! 

it was pretty fun to do, tough i doubt i'll keep on doing boinc on my main rig now. the added heat in the loop doesn;t bode too well for the F@H PPD on my GPU's

maybe next year i'll have some more horsepower to throw this way. ;)

I was going to make a Google forms for this today actually.

I'm seeing more folks nabbing Xeon E5-1XXX series chips now.  Since folks found out a way to OC those on the x79 and x99 platform (....ain't kidding, some folks are hitting into the 4.4GHz to 4.8GHz with those).

There are a series of Xeons that have unlocked multipliers. They're in the 1XXX series.

Though....I really hope AMD has some news on the next TRs at Computex.  But, them dropping those off the roadmap did not leave a good feeling in me.  :I  I held off going from my 1950X up to a 2950X or higher as I plan to jump to the next release.  Plus, next year I be on a very, very nice paying deployment, I will have cash to burn late next year for some nice upgrades for my rigs.

What I would do is take advantage of the price reduction of last gen (after the new release) to get an upgrade for cheaper.

I don't really have any interest in the 2950X and higher chips as the next rework of the next Zen chips is getting the memory controller moved to IO die which hopefully improves the internal latency.  Plus, 7nm should use less power.  Along with updated feature sets.  Personally, I just really want better boards for the TRs and updated features.

 

I actually bought the 1950X when the 2950X drop.  :I  I just hope AMD has something new in the HEDT platform area.

Probably still good idea to get that form done up.  At least one for any folks interested in at least getting messaged for next year.

I'm going to get started on that testing for next year. What distros should I try? I'm thinking:

Ubuntu

Mint

Lubuntu

CentOS

some obscure random Debian distros

any other ideas?

Do you have a raspberry pi, they could make for some interesting testing

I did a little bit of testing with my raspberry pi and Boinc using just the Boinc manager since I really don't know much about running it via the terminal, I tested I believe SETI@Home on it (World Community Grid wasn't supported so I obviously couldn't do OpenZika) and I had to fiddle with the preferences here and there because if I set it to use 100% the CPU very quickly reached near 85c which at that point once it reaches 85c or there about, it starts to thermal throttle. Anyone wanting to do some testing with the raspberry pi I'd suggest maybe trying to find a way to get some activate airflow/cooling on the CPU since the passive cooling only does so much.

Editing this comment of mine because I keep thinking of other things to add onto it. Easier to edit then create a new comment. Also spelling errors.

There are quite a few pi cooling ideas floating about.

I've noticed those. Which is pretty interesting, the extreme heatsink or whatever you would prefer to call it in the first video is something i've seen quite few times while looking around for different ways of cooling the Pi.Though I suppose if one didn't want to use those options they could point a fan at the raspberry pi and let it cool that way, probably wouldn't be as effective but that's one way to go about it.
