I have an important question...well, really two questions :))

I have new computer and new Graphics cards....concretly this:

i7 2600k 3,4ghz
[2] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (5119MB) driver: 30142

And i surprise when i run boinc and i see two BRP CUDA running...

And i make question here...Can Run more apps of CUDA in my computer??And who is the normal temperature of CPU and GPU with BOINC running...

My temps now are:

CPU cores:

CORE1: 81º
CORE2: 82º
CORE3: 85º
CORE4: 82º

GPU1: 59º
GPU2: 61º

All components at 100% evidently... :))

Are normal those temperatures?

I have the original intel heatsink and i think that, I installed well on my Processor...

What can i do for improve the temperatures

Thanks in advance...

Hi,
I have an i7 860 with AMD GPU's and I installed something like that http://www.enermax.de/ets-t40.html; my cpu runs normal at temps below 70 deg now. 85 deg are well within tolerance, but running it at lower temps should theoretically expand lifetime ...

My new i3 systems has a GTX550Ti installed like you have; temps around 60 deg are absolut normal and, compared to other gpu's, 'cool'.

More apps: you mean more than 2 Einstein gpu jobs at the same time?
Basically yes, but I don't think that it really increases your output. More apps mean more traffic to and from gpu-RAM, and the 550Ti has only a 192bit Interface.
Anyway, make your own experience by setting the GPU utilization factor to 0.33 or 0.25 and compare the results.
I found the 0.5 setting for my system quite good.

Ok, I should think in change

Ok, I should think in change cooler...To expand lifetime...I have my new computer 2 days and a love it...I want expand lifetime of my CPU...

And i have put in factor GPU utilization factor of BRP apps: 1

In the explanation says that is maximum...

But...Why my CPU is so hot?...WHY? I don´t understand

Thanks alex, your are really good men...

in the overclocker forums

in the overclocker forums says that i Should update the BIOS...And will must stabilize the temperature... But i think that boinc is boinc and with boinc running my cpu cores continues in 82ºc...

Depends on your room temperature as well as the case, amount and size of case fans, if they have filters, and of course the size of the heat sink on the CPU and the size and speed of its fan. Do you use Intel's stock cooler? That one is very inadequate in trying to cool an i7, whether it's the 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation.

To run more than one BRP per GPU core, go to the project preferences and adjust the value for "GPU utilization factor of BRP apps". It's default at 1, for 1 task per GPU. If you want to run 2, adjust that value to 0.5; 3 is 0.33; 4 is 0.25 etc.

Hi,

I have a i7-3770K and clocked it down yesterday due to the heatwave in germany.
It runs 7 CPU tasks and 2 GPU tasks on my GTX260.
i7-3770K @ 3,9 GHz; room temperatur 27°C ; time 10:30 am
max Temp with Core Temp:
CORE1: 67º
CORE2: 72º
CORE3: 72º
CORE4: 72º

I use a Scythe Mugen 3 but it is TOO BIG for some cases, due to its high.

You seem to have two GTX 550 Ti cards installed, each running a single task.

If you increse the number ob jobs to run per GPU to 2, you will get 2x2=4 jobs.

One odd thing is that the amount of memory (5119MB = 5GB!!) is obviously wrong for the GTX 550 Ti. There must be a problem either with the driver of with BOINC when querying this.

How do I change the number of jobs per GPU?

I'm running a GT 640 and BOINC shows only 1 WU on the GPU. My E@H Preferences don't have a "GPU utilization factor".

I'm using;
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
BOINC 7.0.27 (x86)
Nvidia Driver 295.40

Thanks for any advise,
Steve

You don't have this part for your setting?

Go to Your Account and then click on Einstein@home preference.

Or try this link

The setting is at the bottom.

Enter 0.5 for 2 units at a time
Enter 0.33 for 3 units at a time

And then wait a while. The

And then wait a while. The units-at-time command passes from the Einstein server to your system in new work units--unlike most configuration parameters, I think.
