Perhaps if your CPU downclocks to the base core speed when AVX instructions are detected and if the difference between the base core speed and all core boost is great enough, then SSE2 could be faster because it doesn't cause the downclocking...I don't think.

I guess what I meant was the reason to keep AVX is because some systems don't downclock so much when running AVX and it makes it faster than SSE2

ditto. not enough time left to complete the vbox wus before the end of the challenge

Dunno. Never seen it happen before. Maybe the value got corrupted in one of the projects database which you crunch. Maybe try re-entering a valid Resource Share value in the preferences for all the projects, then update each of those projects in BOINC Manager and see if it clears up.

How do I change the priority of the project?

Go to your LHC@Home project account page, click the SIXTRACK preferences link, add/edit the preferences settings assigned to your computer (probably default), change the Resource Share value to a value higher than the other projects you crunch and update the preferences. If there's no work for the project, you still won't get work, but once work is available and it downloads, your computer will crunch LHC WUs over other projects.

I was looking at who was crunching the most during this challenge and realized the top LHC cruncher wasn't even part of the challenge, or a team. So who is/are the Agile Boincers? Is that the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid?

Is the available work usually this low or is this unusual or have anything to do with the recent upgrade?

Thanks,
