What is BOINC?

Boinc is a collection of various distributed computing projects, it gives you the opportunity to lend your unused processing power to do calculations in the name of science and progress! This can be to help medical science, physics, mathematics, better understand nature, or pretty much anything you can find a corresponding project to, it's up to you to decide what you want your  computing horsepower to be used for, this gives scientists the chance to gather big amounts of data by giving them access to hundreds or thousands of computers, all of this is achieved by  running some software on your computer, there is also software available for smartphones.

Announced

 

Marathon - SiDock@Home

Type: CPU Work Units

DO NOT stop/restart BOINC client or your computer as you'll lose any current processing done (only applies to this project)

Wow I'm soo rusty lol. I've like forgotten everything.

 

Well I've set a single 96 core system on the Marathon project that got "announced" early as a test, might as well do all my setup testing on that project since we know it's going to be used.

 

96 cores down, no idea how many more to go, exciting to find out though.

I'm expecting to pony up probably 30-40 threads myself, I'll be pausing folding and wiling to drop all four GPUs on a project when it gets announced.

I can put somewhere between 4-8 threads on the Marathon project, maybe upto 20 in the middle but that won't be full-time. I think I can allocate my 1060 to a project if there's a GPU specific project announced, though.

Desktop build : Ryzen 5 3600 (O/C to 4Ghz all-core) | Gigabyte B450M-DS3H | 16GB DDR4-2400 Crucial(O/C to 2667) | 3GB Zotac GTX 1060 Mini (O/C) | CoolerMaster MWE 650 Gold

                        

Laptop : Lenovo Yoga 3 14 - Core i7-5500U | 8GB DDR3 RAM | 256GB SSD | 2GB Geforce GT 940M

10 threads of my Ryzen 5 3600 are yours to command.

GPUs stay F@H though.

 

EDIT:
And my Pentium III, though it's still on the single PrimeGrid task that I gave it on April 6th...

I will recommend an NHu12s (or an NHd15 (maybe)) for your PC build. Quote or @ me @Prodigy_Smit for me to see your replies.

@leadeateryou planning to write something instead of that placeholder post? 

 

I'm going to ask can they give us a WAN shout out and a post with some details on would be helpful.

Also we are firing on all 40 cylinders threads now for the marathon, trying to acquire another 4-6 threads. 

 

I'm probably able to be rather dynamic with my projects most days, but we need a captain to take the helm.

Well, you are the mod...

 

 

Jokes aside, once I get my iMac G5 going it will also run BOINC (because F@H doesn't support PowerPC).

 

As for my P3, it's been running this BOINC task for 392.5 hours and is at 81%.

I started it on... April 9th?

Blargh for busy life and all that jazz.  I will have some computers up for the Pent.

 

Should have the 1950X 16c/32t and the E5-2670V3 12c/24t again for this year through at it.  Right now need to get an beefy air cooler for the 5800X 8c/16t on order.  I might get the 5960X up.....just trying to recall if I have that darn x99 Gigabyte mobo, can't seem to find it atm.

 

Offset, only the 2070 Max-Q and a Titan X Pascal this time around to help out with some GPU WUs.

I'll likely only participate in COVID-related events. The process is pretty much the same across all the BOINC applications.

 

I wouldn't bee surprised to see either Rosetta or OpenPandemics be the Marathon this year.

I'll be throwing around 150 threads at this, and gpus will depend on projects selected. I have a mix of amd or nvidia I can select from, but warmer temps could limit how many I can comfortably throw at it. Hoping for Einstein or Milkyway for my 2 watercooled Radeon VII's. It's been tempting to sell them with the current market, but they are just soo good at those projects and a bit of mining as well. If I ever setup a dedicated boinc rig, they may live out the rest of their days in there.

Perhaps, but we won't know that until it's over. Don't count us out before it even begins.

 

Besides, this year we have EPYC. :3
