Re: New Brainfish release missing large pages?

Thanks. I guess I should read the Stockfish patch notes more often! :)

Re: Leela and NVIDIA clock throttling (and overheating)

If you are running 1 or 2 CPU threads to drive your 2080 TIs (ala LC0) then it is unlikely you are hitting the PSU limit; however, if you are also maxing your CPU, you can easily go over 1000W. Mike and I both have 3970X systems so they are a bit power hungry anyway, but if I run 32 threads and max ...

Re: SHA Hashes 7 piece syzygy.

I did not "create" any hashes whatsoever. All of these hashes were from lists provided by others. I simply combined the posted corrections and noted that not one list I found was without errors. I ONLY claim that these SHA hashes match the data at lichess.org for the subset I downloaded. Perhaps yo...

SHA Hashes 7 piece syzygy.

I completed my download of the 7 piece Syzygy tablebases from http://tablebase.lichess.ovh/tables/standard/7/ about a week ago. As I said I would in an earlier thread, I am linking the SHA-256 hash file I used to download them as every other hash list I found had some errors in it. Since it appears ...

Re: Threadripper 3970X owners.

Re: Threadripper 3970X owners.

so I set to it 3600 Mhz and using the default CAS settings for DDR 3600 ( all other settings set to auto), set the volts to 1.43 ( up from 1.35) - it booted right up , ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool - no hardware issues detected.
