  1. Last 24 hours or so WU's have been all over the place - bad work units, WU's taking an hour longer than normal, irregular temps and GPU utilisation, double the usual TPF and 230k points being returned as 30k ... Just seen there's a new v7.6.13 version of the F@H software c:\Hommerbackwardsintohedgememe\probablythat

  3. Hey guys thanks were thanks is due, setting client-type "advanced" and next-unit-percentage "95" & danielocdh babysitting script working its magic along with a fresh install of the latest F@H client. The WUs are flowing again, much appreciated.
  4. I feel like the guy who just joined EVE and flew to Nullsec to mine Veldspar ... My WUs have hit a brick wall, enough to post here and ask if I've missed something. Not had a problem to date, client set up -apparently- properly, WU flow was good (as per stats below), then nothing since Saturday. Am I really not the One or should I ignore the Oracle and just be patient? Cheers guys i9990k / 2080 / F@H Client 7.5.1 Stats - https://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?s=&u=944813

  6. JULY 2019 update: I've learned a good lesson this week - Small drives are small. When you're filling up a parts list with your rapidly depleting savings, 256gb is a lot softer on the wallet than 1tb, especially when the box is already full of £1000 shiny things. In a giant surprise to literately nobody, it's taken Windows Update ... and Adobe Creative Cloud, Autocad Suite, my entire picture library and not at all DCS World 4 months to max out the diddy 256gb M.2 970 Evo. Opps. Prime Day to the rescue with a 60% off 1tb 860 Evo in the back along side the 500gb 860 from build. Cheaping out
  7. RAYTHEON "A Celtic ray of sunlight" Hey folks, I'm Ray. Welcome to a 20 minute read about me nerding out over building my first dream PC. Bit about me first, I grew up in the countryside as a kid and got my first Amstrad computer when I was 14. Played and modded the original Operation Flashpoint (2002) from demo to death then headed out into the big wide world of work. Trained for and ran my own graphics business which accidentally became successful which moved to London. With the big 3-0 rocking up I decided to pack it all in and go to University to chase my dreams of becoming a
  8. @LukeSavenije I see what you did there (and thanks, much more sensible). @Neftex On a time frame I'm afraid, need the box operational inside a month for an upcoming project.

  10. @Taf the Ghost Hey bud, After a little learning homework looking up your list and having a solid think, you've got it nailed there. Thinking OC the chip on water and liquid metal (delid) on the x299-XE board to keep temps down and then save up for another 32gb kit to add in later on. I suppose its just a waiting game now to see how the 2080 / i9-9900K / x299 refresh pans out in the run up to Christmas. Black Friday is going to be a busy one this year! Cheers for the help, hopefully I'll link you to a build log when it comes! Ray
  11. @Taf the Ghost Good shout! Spent time today looking up Adobe & Autodesk suite core usages, the general consensus being (for my level of work) multi-core but pointless beyond 6 - 8 with recommendation being to spend money on ram and ssd over cores. (Unless heavy rendering which was more the merrier / 3D models being more ram based over cpu hence 64gb future upgrade). So it'd come down to higher clock speed vs more cores? Thinking single largish M.2 boot + suites with SSD project storage. Nice spot on the PSU (+£160ish), my budget is flexible to a few hundred if neede
