Lightbulb n=x^3-x-1

Let n=x^3-x-1 for x integer >2. In the past I have tested x^n==x mod n => n is prime.

Let's start with n=p*q. Note that either p or q is congruent to -1 mod 4 and either p or q is congruent to -1...

As has been said, they 8 pin CPU plug is not interchangeable with the GPU ones. If your board uses only 4 pins for the CPU feed then make sure to get a 4+4.

Can you tell me whether the BeagleV will be 32 bit or 64 bit?

Edit; according to https://www.tomshardware.com/news/beaglev-riscv-announced it had a dual core 64 bit U74 CPU.

crazy Mersenne test

If there exists a non-power of 2, k, such that Mod(k,n)^p==1 then n, a Mersenne number, is composite. E.g. n p=11, k=39; n p=23, k=156171.

Is there any quick way to identify a k for a particular...

Why are you not running PRP instead of LL? LL entails twice the work for the server/community. (Everyone) for goodness sake run certifiiable PRP!
