17:56 *** MiniFridge has joined #boinc

17:57 <MiniFridge> will using BOINC greatly decrease my CPU lifetime or any other hardware?

18:02 *** gamerchick02 has joined #boinc

18:03 <xcamel> no.

18:07 <Eagle07> depends

18:08 <Eagle07> If it is low quality hardware... perhaps.

18:08 <Eagle07> If it is solid... nope.

18:10 <MiniFridge> I have an i5-4570

18:10 <MiniFridge> it's brand new

18:10 <Eagle07> that comment was aimed more at psu and mobo than any other component

18:11 <Eagle07> those are the 2 that will let you down sooner if they are low-grade

18:11 <MiniFridge> oh, I have a Seasonic S12II 620 and ASRock Fatal1ty Performance H87 motherboard

18:13 <MiniFridge> It's not the best PSU, but I'm not sure if it could be considered "bad"

18:16 <Eagle07> heh... its the best brand of psu

18:16 <Eagle07> Asrock tends to be hit or miss but more hit lately

18:16 <Eagle07> they have done quite well lately

18:16 <MiniFridge> oh

18:16 <MiniFridge> I've been running this motherboard without issues atm

18:16 <MiniFridge> but, it hasn't been that long

18:17 <Eagle07> Well Asrock is typically doa or solid so... don't worry too hard

18:17 <Eagle07> lol

18:17 <MiniFridge> Eagle07, it may be the best brand, but it's a lower priced PSU

18:17 <MiniFridge> oh okay, lol

18:17 <Eagle07> so... Seasonic makes rock sold PSU's they OEM them out to many other companies

18:18 <Eagle07> The best Corsair PSU's are seasonic designs

18:18 <MiniFridge> ah, okay

18:18 <Eagle07> I just picked up a "low end" seasonic 450w for a HTPC

18:19 <Eagle07> really didn't even need that... I am just scared of the pico PSUs

18:19 <Eagle07> cpu is 25w gpu is 60w

18:21 *** chek2fire has joined #boinc

18:21 <MiniFridge> why would a project not support GPU computing?

18:21 <MiniFridge> Isn't GPU computing faster?

18:22 <Eagle07> requires more programming

18:22 <Eagle07> gpus are massively parallel

18:22 <Eagle07> and can do more IF the code supports it

18:22 <Eagle07> they are still highly specific

18:23 <Eagle07> and are not good at Some things... the cpu is the general proc... jack of all trades master of none...

18:25 <MiniFridge> oh

18:25 <MiniFridge> I see

18:26 <MiniFridge> I wish SIMAP supported GPU rendering, I might be able to fly through tasks then :P

18:26 <MiniFridge> *computing

18:26 <MiniFridge> I may just try World Communtiy Grid
