I agree, sounds like a fan - had it on one of mine ages ago.  Awful noise on boot-up but then stops and all OK  Huh


My case fan started that recently.  I just put a drop of sewing machine oil into the bearing and all's been quiet ever since.  Best not to over oil though. Fridaynite

Just be careful on launch and re-entry, otherwise you should be fine.  Thumbs Up

Can anyone explain more about the massive differences in work unit processing times, for instance - anything between 100,450 and 9,731 experienced in last 3 days results. These equate to 27.9 hrs and 2.7 hrs. But actual run times were 34 Hrs and 3.15 hrs.

Current unit has taken 24700(6.86hrs) to process 4.92% - if the rest of the unit takes the same average then it means 139.43 hrs to run the whole thing! Scary Shock

I run WCG and Dimes alongside it and FAD seems to take the vast majority of spare cycles usually between 90 - 95% while WCG gets 2 - 3%. Dimes blips 2% now and again through Java but nothing else.

It all depends on the querie, Evo.  Some of them vary wildly re times and hits, others take pretty much the same for every job.  They're not consistant through the same job either.  I had one on my old compaq that calc'd out to 200hrs but was done at 180.  It got to around 90% and just took off.

The simplest way explaining the disparity in times, is through analogy. The binding of a molecule to the protein target is akin to fitting a key to a lock. Some protein targets are like a very high quality lock requiring a very specific key, these will give very few hits, other targets are more like those cheap chinese padlocks where a bent piece of wire will suffice., and correspondingly generate a much greater number of hits.

To explain the seemingly erratic progress of any work unit, I shall continue with the lock and key analogy.Each molecular file consists of 100 unique organic molecular structures. To each of these structures is performed 100 substitutions giving a maximum number of 10100 individual structures or in the analogy 'keys'. As each of the set of 101 derivative molecules are structurally similar, it is likely as not, that if one member will bind, then other members of that group will. Or, if one key fits the lock, other keys of similar nature may also fit.

I should also add, that these molecular structures also vary in "stiffness", for example, the simpler straight chain molecules can flex quite freely into a great number of differing conformations, whereas the complex looking molecules containg any number of linked cyclic structures tend to be much stiffer and correspondingly are quicker to process. It is all these factors which create such variability in the times that we are all witnessing.

What can I say folks - very good comprehensive response. Understand molecular stuff a bit better now!
Glad I'm not over in the 'other place' 'cos this would have been judged to be against the 'state' and post removed.

Couldn't argue with that DA - especially when one team (several puns alert!!) EVOlves into four but vultures spreading their wings is only to be expected.

Glad I gave you the opporchancity to have a dig Thumbs Up

Check that all the Cards and cables are still seated and connected as they should be...

I've had instances where temp variations had unseated a card. It will also sometimes get dust down into the contact points. (Had that happen to the ram card on the wife's rig a couple months ago).
