P18308 (GRO_A8) won't run

Post by JimF »

It will run for a few minutes with low output (initially 3,3800 PPD, then rising to 200 kPPD, and then falling back to low), and then start over.
This is on Unbuntu 20.04.4.

Core_A* deals with threads a bit differently so you often can get away with thread settings that are large primes, but 23 may either be too large or triggers an error with this WU. Try stopping and starting with a lower thread count like 16, 18 or 20.

Thanks. I have tried it on 22 and 20 cores with about the same result.
But this is a new machine, and I am using Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) with a negative offset to cool the CPU a bit.
Normally, it sets the voltage and clock automatically without problems, but I expect it has introduced a bit of instability here.

I will fix it eventually.

PS - It is OK now. If you are familiar with PBO, I disabled "Curve Optimizer" and just set the Power Limit to 105 watts.
The CPU is now running at a very reasonable 75C at normal clock speed, and I am getting about 400 kPPD on core P18412.
This is with a single fan 120mm Arctic Liquid Freezer II cooler.

Previously, it was hitting 91C, which I think caused the problem. Each Ryzen is a little different, and you have to optimize them differently.
