Anyone still running the RC5 encryption key challenge?

I use it at work for max load thermal testing. I just started a large scale test running a whole cabinet fulled with Rackable C2004 quad core xeon systems (1.86GHz) and it makes me the second largest individual contributor and the fifth largest team contributor for the daily project stats.

My stats:

thanks!

I had not seen this particular distributed computing project yet. In looking at the ported versions, I finally see that there is something for my DEC AXP4000 alphaserver to do for work! It looks like they're ported it to just about every OS that reasonable people use, plus few more. Seti@home's port for OpenVMS disappeared a couple of years back, so this is perfect. 'Course my $/MIPS is pretty out of whack with the amount of power this beast pulls Wink

I'll be trying to run this soon, for sure.

Wow, that's a ton of blocks.

Wow, that's a ton of blocks. I'm guessing you know the stats of how many watts you're sucking down to run the tests? I'm sure your watts/MIPS is pretty decent.

I'm running 40 Rackable C2004

I'm running 40 Rackable C2004 servers each with dual quad core 1.8GHz Xeon processors, 8GB of FB memory, and four 750 GB disks. Each machine uses about 280 watts at full load. All of the machines are in a single cabinet drawing 12,000W (there's network switches and serial concentrators in the rack too) via two 208V 20A three phase power inputs.
