I would go with the Overclockers-Network team. It was the original seti team and the first site (between these two) that had a seti forum. Don't get me wrong, I love HWC, but you gotta go with the original.
Yep, it has been. I had a nasty surprise with LINUX at home, lost my O2 at work, lost my fellow, so's now I have to work again. But I still have the ALPHAS dedicated to our SETI, and I've posted my weak progress with the 840 RMDRAM project. I will have the system up soon with air cooling, double staged potted peltiers to follow.
The ~5:45 times are still the pathetic 420 dual 733/RMDRAM system and the ~8's are my poor KAYAK in my office with a 100MHz GX and twin P2 450 XEONs.
hey man, your WU contribution is very important to the OCN SETI group! Man, thats one neat setup you got going, DRDram, 840 mobo, dual stage peltier ... you are making me see green ... BTW, I heard SETI doesn't do SMP, maybe that's why you are still running in the mid 5's. I heard best use for dual processor is to run more than one instance of SETI at the same time. Cheers! Oh yeah, I figure you might be interested in this bit of info. Sanders posted about his 1.1 GHz 700e (150 FSB) doing a WU in 4.2 hrs with NT. I think he needed 5.3 hrs in w98se (what I am running). Man, I wish I had a faster OS (I don't have NT and my burner went south on me so I can forget about Linux for now). I am still running in the mid 4's.
Check out # 20 + #34. The alphas are working without merit, cause I couldn't bring myself to have another account. One of the SETI team contacted me about the 1:52 OCTANE times and I had to tell the poor bloke I couldn't send it because of our firewall. I did e-mail the fellow to put the WU's back in circulation.
And being protectful of the quality of information on this site is appreciated by everybody!
Well. also I was responsible for reporting that SETI did support SMP. Tiberia stated otherwise, so I investigated further. What i saw in TaskManager was both CPU's at ~100% and thought this was SMP. As kernal times were different in the 2 CPUU's I concluded that the TM was reporting true CPU usage, and not mirroring. Further investigation showed one CPU FPUing the WU, and the other doing those mesmorising graghics, (SETI, doesn't API their graphics). So at least I can chat with the good folks here, or play UT without much of a penalty in my WU times, but also, the two CPU's cannot, by themselves decrease WU times. SETI DOES NOT SUPPORT SMP. I've proved this with every major chip and OS. Thanks Tiberia, for SETIing me strait.
