What kind of quad core is it? If your CPU has Hyperthreading on it, you'll never use 100% of it (and wouldn't want to as it's not faster).

I have an AMD 1050T that I used to run a GTX460 and an HD 5770 in. I'm not that techno-savvy but I got them running with little to no fuss.

Figured I'd expand this in case someone has a slower AMD card they'd like to trade. Cards I have available: 2 - GTX 480's, GTX 560Ti, GTX 560, GTX 460, GTX 550Ti and GTS 450. Let me know what you'd...

Looking for possible trade

I have a GTX 480 that I have used for about the last 6-8 months and I'm looking for someone who has an AMD HD 5970/7870/7950 who would be interested in a trade. While the Nvidia cards are better for...

You are making no sense. Comparing 30M-34M ^70 to 60M-68M ^74 is ludicrous. Every LLTF factor saves 2 tests, every DCTF saves 1, so you would be more correct saying 60M-62M ^74, though you would...

ECM question

I found a TF factor that P-1 would never find (~2.6 million GHzD) and I was wondering approx how long it should take for ECM to find it. The P-1 parameters would be B1=3 and B2=~1.42e+13.

I don't know about mprime that much, but I doubt your best performance is using the entire CPU on a single exponent. Run a benchmark and see the iteration times for 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8. On mine at...

Dern things are kinda like snipes... never know when one will pop up.

It was always estimated that GPUs were at least 100x a CPU, but it wasn't until mfaktc .20 that this was truly realized.

Snide comments aside, because the 2500k is technically a high end gaming CPU and not many people would dedicate theirs 24/7 to GIMPS. I spent...

If your PC only has 1GB of RAM, assigning 800MB to it may be too much as part of your RAM is of necessity taken up by the OS. I would recommend dropping it to 500-600 and retrying myself.

We aren't doing all exp to ^74 though. As Chalsall pointed, there are over 9,900 exponents TF'd to 73 between 60M and 63M ready to be handed out with about 5200 64M+ already TF'd to 74. Seems to me...
