  1. I've got my 1950X on it. Everything else is on Marathon.
  2. Mine will do WCG for literal months 24/7 at 4.4GHz but SiDock went NOPE immediately. Couldn't even login it'd crash as soon as BOINC started on boot. Dialed it down to 4.2GHz and everything appears fine'n'dandy. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  3. This is one reason why we should petition BOINC as a stability testing tool. One rig Kernel Pannicked on SiDock had to dial down the O.C. appears to be working fine now. Consider doing the same.
  4. Depending on how they're damaged exactly you might be able to save it by running a tap through it to clean up what threads are hopefully left. Otherwise your only other options are to replace the component or jerry-rig it.
  5. Damn, came back to this this morning and once again the one closer to the corner of the frame just went *POP* and came off. Investigating the braise joint it's not taking very well. At the same time it looks rather dirty. Tonight after work or tomorrow I'll cut a fresh piece of aluminum. File the edges down and clean up the surface of the frame better than I did before. I'M GONNA GET THIS THING STUCK ON THERE IF IT KILLS ME! IT'S THE LAST DAMN PIECE!
  6. Bunkering WCG on the 1950X. I assume it doesn't matter which one I release it on if the lowest score of three is the one they count?
  7. Alright. This time I freaking LAID the heat on there (MAPP+Propane) with complete and utter disregard for the fact I might melt the aluminum but this time I think we may have finally succeeded. Giant globs of melted braising rod. If it didn't take this time I don't think it ever will. It was still hot in this image but we successfully didn't melt the aluminum and I don't see any cracks or voids. I'm feeling confident that it took this time but I'm going to let it cool down naturally before I draw any conclusions. As for a little PSA
  8. Because you know I'd show up asking to "borrow" some of the excess equipment?
  9. Yeah, when I have a chance today I'm moving the 1950X to the Javlin throw. It hasn't completed any SiDock work at all. No checkpoints is really dumb if you can't even turn the computer off at the end of the day. Not everyone can run everything 24/7. I didn't really look at total credit. Total credit suggests I aught to be somewhere around 80,000~85,000 PPD but I'm not even at the 48hr mark. A far cry from 3.5 days.
  10. I'm still trying to make sense of how I'm doing. SiDock is really slow to ramp up stats. I'm starting to think I won't see accurate numbers till we're half way through the event.
  11. From the SETI.Germany site. No. From the project site (like SIDock@home) yes.
  12. How do you plan to acquire these for less than $5000 + the rest of a system? 16TB drives are not cheap and you're paying a premium for density at these capacities.
  13. One step forward two steps back... This is not the setup I used to try and braise these I just did this in the end to hold them in place. I succeeded in using both MAPP & Propane to get the frame hot enough to start taking the rod but something went wrong and the left support barely took. The right support is rigid but there's cracks and voids so I don't trust it long term. Tomorrow night we will tackle this once again with a different approach and see if we can finish out this aggravating bastard.
  14. I didn't grow up watching the shows or owning any of the bears so... LMG did recently release a video about that. Dataceters might implement a mitigation for it but that probably depends on how bad the performance hit is. It kind of sucks that the only real vulnerabilities anybody's finding as of late in CPU's are ones where patching it makes the system perform worse. I guess the devs either didn't know or didn't care all for the sake of performance. Which now that I think about it has kind of been the end game between AMD & Intel. Who can build the faster processor
