Anyone know what this means? Thats the second wu worth 556 thats been trashed inside 2 days. Last time the server reported a problem with my result. So i decided to remove my overclock but now i get this? Grrrrrr.

Thx

It essentially means that the client wasn't properly able to access the necessary files in the work directory. Sadly there isn't much that can be done about it. :(

Oh ok, then. What about the server reporting problems with a unit? I dont think its due to my overclock. Its been running for 19 days straight and it reports a problem now?

E6300 at 2.8ghz
xms2 RAM at stock timings and pc2-6400

everything passed memtest and orthos when i tested it a month ago.

Many different things might have caused it. If it doesn't happen again soon I'd call it a fluke and move on.

Fine ill set it back upto 2.8ghz.
Were you really crunching that same 556 pointer for 19 days on an OC'd E6300? If so, there's something more seriously wrong going on.

No, lots of different wus. Thx anyway. I hope they were flukes :) . Otherwise more boring stability testing. :(

F@H is one of the best long-term stability tests about. When I was overclocking this PC, I could dual prime overnight and do as many SuperPis as you'd care to mention, but it would fail a Gromacs test within about 2 minutes.

However, what you have there is probably a bit of bad luck. Watch your output for early unit ends (EUEs), but I would have thought it's fine.
