I think this job is a "not yet":
As we get more data from C200-C210 jobs, we will become better able to choose parameters and estimate relations-needed.
As GPUs with large memory become more...

Wait- you think *disabling* overclocking would void a warranty? Think about that.

You're not thinking big enough if you think the people who factor the most use any single GPU.

So you understood the rules perfectly, and decided "your own style" was to not follow them?

It'll be on 15e for sure. First-round of test-sieve indicates something like Q from 50-400M will do the job.
sec/rel is a tiny bit faster on 15e than 16f, at Q=200M. The job would be faster on...

If the machine is covered by a fancy Best Buy warranty, wouldn't doing things like changing to liquid cooling or changing cases void the warranty?

No. You found the cat hair is the cause, not the type of cooling.
I'm still unclear why you took it back, but if you bought cheese and they covered it you come out ahead. {shrug}

I've seen lots of computers overheat, never seen one damaged from the event. Weird.

That's funny. I don't pay attention to the form of the Kosta numbers so I didn't give a different poly any consideration.

I used -d 1 because I believe that is how the f-small siever runs. I don't think you have a worry about the failed workunits, but Greg should comment before we submit the job.
