Yup, that does indeed say 1 day 3 hours for each task. I want to believe it's just because the rig is new and it hasn't finished one so the BOINC client is just guessing. I suspect they'll finish a lot sooner.

Like I said, I have an AMD 3600 that does them in about 6 hours which is similar to your rigs.
My oldest rig is an old Xeon, dual socket X5650 and it completes the tasks in about 11 to 12 hours.

So there's no way your rig will take over a day to complete them.

Sometimes the estimates are all over the place when you first start a project. I'd give it a few hours before being too concerned about any of it. Sidock is kind of notorious for the estimates being somewhat all over the place as well. I'm sure it will be fine just let it run, and thanks for joining the effort!

Yeah sidock's app doesn't report its progress back to the client, so the client has to guess what the progress is and its estimated time remaining, this will get better as more tasks are completed

Hey Mike! Keep going! And welcome to the Team!

I've been doing this for only a year and it is a fun learning curve! And frustrating.. :)

My new 5950x just did the same thing today as your's on SiDock! I spent two hours trying to find out why this puter was showing longer run times than older puters. It is a reporting thing. Likely to adjust / become much more accurate after the first tasks report back. I had experienced this in the past, but because it was on a new puter to me this week I thought there was a problem... I chased puter issues that did not exist and stressed out some.

All is well....

I hope you enjoy the rabbit hole as much as the rest of us!

Edit 1: Zen3 is fast on all Boinc! Make sure you have enough RAM for whatever you are running. SiDock so far needs at least 1/2 gig per task / thread. Normally 1 gig per thread is great on most of Boinc at this point in time.

2nd Edit: and make sure to adjust your Boinc "computing preferences" to your liking and puters ability. If you have questions ask here or P.M. the crazies' in the Anand D.C. forum.

3rd Edit to add this CornBeefHash thing: @CuriousMike

Don't even know if this is how Corned Beef works on the innerwebs... :)

The Team finished in 2nd place for a Silver Medal overall. That's back to back Silver Medals the Team has won.

Next year our goal is to go for Gold. So check out the DC sub forum sometime in the next 11 months to learn how to get your little boxes loaded up for the competition. We could use the help.

I contributed about 2% of the Team marathon points with my high powered trio of systems - a 5950X (daily driver), a 2700X (media center), and an A10-7870K (retired hardware I turned back on for the competition).

With just 35 more people like me, we could have gold next year!
