Well as the title states I am giving OCF some spare cycles:) I run WCG at another forum and decided that if I gave up the cherry pie and laid low (shot for pink) it may attract more members. ATM I am just running SETI on a limited basis but if I cant get out of the red I will be moving entire rigs over here for a while. Hope I can hang with you guys for a while:) and help your and my cause at the same time.

Welcome! If you need help optimizing or anything QuietIce and Careface put together a nice Sticky.

It is pretty much like WCG as I use BONIC. I am thinking of putting an 8400 in one of my rigs to do some testing (one without an nvidia card) and it seems the seti can take more advantage of the Cuda than WCG does.

Great to see you up and running!

Seems like my 8400 added 3-400 RAC to my machine. I'll be doing a little experiment with it soon to see if running a core just to feed the GPU will help. I'll let you know in a few weeks. :)

If you haven't added the SETI optimizers yet you really should do that. It's the main reason our rigs turn in so much more credit running SETI over Einstein or Rosetta. We get anywhere from 10-40% more RAC. It's also very easy to do at this point. Someone over at Lunatics wrote an installer, which I understand works very well ... ;)
