Because sometimes it is faster. I only two CPUs, but on 105 M exponents, 4 workers is significantly better than 2 workers. That's why the benchmark exists. Run it with 1, 2, 3 and 6 workers, and see what has the highest throughput.

My 1 CPU and 1 GPU can work simultaneously, but the amount of heat generated has already been a lot, more workers may stress the heat even greater.
You should benchmark Prime95 if you are using it. The benchmark exists in the program.

If you want me to do M168779323 or M168479323 I don't mind doing them. I will benchmark one, work out the cost of the electricity, and you can pay me via PayPal. Or better still, I do like Amazon. I will charge you for a month, and you do what you want for the month. You will have 52 cores, and a few hundred GB RAM to play with.

I'm not going to be doing much more GIMPS work. People like chalsall have driven me away. I will only do a little work on servers that don't cost me anything to run.

Let me finish the PRP of M168202123 first, if it turns out composite, then I'll try to negotiate for some deals.

I don't have Paypal myself, but I do use my credit card on Ebay with the Paypal security transactions. I haven't done this before, so I don't know how it'll work or not work although I prefer to be charged by the quantity of the exponents than directly by the time. All I want is to prove whether there's at least 1 hidden Mersenne Prime from M168,***,*23(around 800 survivors so far) or not.

A new PC with the AMD Threadripper 5970X and Radeon 6900 XT in it can cost up to $4,000.

I don't know how to run AW Instance for the Prime testing, this is my problem. LaurV told me something like 6 M168M exponents for $10, is that the ongoing rate on AW instance? I tried to install Linux Mint 20 last time, it crashed my boot and I had to reinstall everything.

I still need some time to trial factor up more exponents to the PRP Ready status if to ask another user for an entire month. Ben Delo finished 3 M168M exponents within only 4 days and 6 hours, thus at least 28 PRP ready exponents will be required to fulfill that time consider a full month with every components run up to the maximum efficiency.

The record is showing that at least 1 more user is interested in preparing the M168M exponents.

This F-PM1 was surely a fabulous hit by a new user - M168322477, would be nice if she can run the P-1 on the exponents with the trial factoring worked up to at least 2^77 such as M168448723.

I guess the extreme good luck won't come twice in a row.

M168322481 turned out NF-PM1, thus Dobri forced the GIMPS server to hand out M168M Trial Factoring assignment to other users.

It was an accidental overlapping with your pet range. I am just testing an AI heuristic algorithm for manual selection. My guess is that the AI engine selected some exponents there because 6 and 8 seldom (if ever) appear as the 1st and 2nd decimal digits in the known 8-digit Mersenne primes.

It seemed like the speed of the CPU is functioning smoothly, see the screenshot below.
One could check if the thermal paste is applied uniformly as an interface between the CPU and the cooling fan by checking the temperatures of the distinct CPU cores.
A basic app (among many CPU testing apps) is available at https://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp.

GPU users could easily check the GPU temperature in Windows by going to Task Manager -> Performance -> GPU.
Of course, there are other specialized apps to monitor the GPU temperature for NVIDIA and AMD if needed.

GPU-Z. The latest displays a lot of information.

With a new CPU fan, my GPU is slightly cooler too. If I can use my current old PC for around half a year longer, it'll be ideal. The global chip shortage should come to an end by the beginning of year 2022.

Please note that typically there are (at least) two GPUs. The first one is the integrated Intel GPU which has a temperature close to the average CPU temperature.
The second one is the NVIDIA interface card with a distinct temperature which has its own cooling fan(s) and is doing the parallel processing.

I have Intel Core i7 4930K which was purchased from CyberPowerPC.com in year 2013, it didn't come with the integrated GPU features.
