If you are going to invest time into it, and if we are allowed to vote, we will also vote for "number of minutes". It makes better sense for us to say (in case of a crash/restart) that "we lost the last 30 minutes of work, a risk which we assumed when we set the respective parameter", and not "we lost the last 194753 iterations, which multiplied by 3.7692 milliseconds, meant we lost about... (make the calculus) time"...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Isn't it already like that? Save files are written every <x> minutes. The previous request was for screen output. Or am I missing something in your description?

Here's some benchmarks. I've added my current running version as well.

Prime95 27.7 and Prime95 28.3.

I'm going to run a 24-hour stress test and then I'll run a dozen DC's.

Correct. I am referring to screen output.

OMG... this version is already showing up on other overclocking/hardware forums...

EDIT: Just google prime95 28.3... LOL

The people on overclock.net are having kittens over the ~1-2% improvement in Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge.

I really don't understand people. Using a beta version of software to stress test. Around here we're still stress testing the stress test. .

I've started on my DC's. My stress-test went smoothly. HWMonitor recorded max temps about 2C above where they usually are after a day of full load, so this is probably the smaller FFT's.

Is the memory bottleneck something that occurs at all FFT sizes (beyond the hyper small ones which fit in the cache?)

Hmm, yes I believe so. You could test that out though

As I suggested a few years ago having a different setting for number of iterations in the screen output and iterations in the title bar of each worker window would be great. This way you could be kept more up to date where the workers are and the performance while keeping the worker windows relatively clear of clutter.

Also, allowing decimal iterations in the CPU window of how many hours per day the program will run would be great. I find that 24 isn't too accurate but neither is 23 on my new 4770k. Being able to do 23.8 hours might be nice.

Iteration: 20361987/32479871, POSSIBLE ERROR: ROUND OFF (0.40625) > 0.40
Continuing from last save file.

Disregard last error. Result is reproducible and thus not a hardware problem.
For added safety, redoing iteration using a slower, more reliable method.

For the record I've seen this in previous versions.
