Why do ALL of the work units seem to be taking longer know? As little as a month ago I use to be able to do a lambda work unit in about 50 hours and a ribo in about 60 hours. Their times have increased about 10 to 15 percent. Anyone alse see this?

I just picked up a lambda (2124) and FahMon estimates a little over 2 days. I've only just started so I don't really have a standard of comparison.

Well my AN7 OC'd to 2400mhz takes around 3 days 24/7 to do one of those p2124's.

I'm not gonna quit because of them but it would be nice if they were double pointers like the ol' p1140's used to be.I used to do one of those in 2 1/2 days flat.

ps.my current 2124 and 2125 say they have 20 million frames in the log.That's really 20 million steps I think,there are only 100 frames according to the summary page.

Just got my 3rd 2414...1 day, 18 hours for 600 points. Again, no point of comparison so I don't know if that's normal or long. With both cores working I can turn a work unit every day-and-a-half or so.

There's nothing wrong with the 2414 WU's if you ask me. They take me a little over 2 day's work per core and are 600 credits each, so that turns out to about 600credits/day. I hate those 2124 and 2125 units though, they take about as long as a 2414 but are 'only' 392 credits.

It's not that the large work units take along time to finish. What I'm seeing is the large work units are taking a longer and longer time to finish. I clean out my computers at least once a week and defragment them and all that stuff. Still, they are taking anywhere form 10% to 15% longer to do the same work units. I do like the 600 pointers.

It seems like lately my WU's have been alternating between 160 point Ambers, and 600 point ribos. I've been able to turn a WU every day-and-half with that mix. I love it.

hehe fizzbang I could literally pass by you in 24 hours if I wanted. I have 5 pc's here and all failry powerfull. Mobile 2600+ at 2.3ghz with 1.5gb ram is the slowest. Oh 6 if you count the laptop Im fixing tonight, and 8 if you count the work I brought home. But I WONT use a customers pc for that. Kinda wrong.

Hehe I could really crank the numbers if I wanted. But I dont want the power meter spinning like a record player!

It seems the only way I can keep from sending a partial work unit is to shut the computer down, restart it and get it on line and wait a couple of minutes and then it will send only the completed work unit. It works so I'll use it.
