I want to hear from some others -- are you having trouble with the new Gromacs core? My two fast machines have has several errors -- checksum and I/O errors, and they are overclocked. I suspect it is a RAM error, rather than a CPU or CPU overheating that is causing it, so I'll try a slightly
slower FSB/RAM speed and see how things go with that. Otherwise, I'll have to get better RAM...
The Win2K client has had two (and one was with over 300 of 400 steps done!
) and they just aborted. The Linux client has had about 4 in a row, and in some cases, it tries restarting the unit back at a known point. The Linux units have all been the same: p539_BBA5_N in water, and I forget which WU it was in the Windows client.
But in the end, I have wasted a lot of time with these. The Windows client has an error message that I don't see in the Linux, that says in a nutshell, if you see more than a few of these, that there may be something going wrong with your computer, like overheating (I doubt this is a issue), overclocking, or other problems. I will try dropping my RAM/FSB speed back a bit -- maybe my RAM is kicking out errors that the Gromacs core is more "sensitive" to?
