I have 2 brand new PC’s for harvesting (they were brand new about 1.5 months ago and bought for this purpose). They both have Windows 10 Pro installed. No other s/w is installed expect from default s/w provided by the vendor, but not much wasteware (as is per usual for some vendors).
The only thing they do is run MadMax.
The PC’s crash anywhere from 20 mins after power up/start harvesting, to over 2 hours or even over a day. I had to setup a monitor script on another PC to run test-netconnection to them so I get an alert when they become unresponsive.
They’ll sit there happily doing nothing, with no crashes but when using Madmax v0.1.1 (latest version) they start to crash.
Using HWInfo, the CPU’s are aren’t hot (60-70C).
All drivers are up to date and there are no obvious errors in Event Viewer.
As a test, I’ve disabled Intel SpeedStep and Turbo boost and this sorted out one of them, but not the other one. Obviously this hurts plotting time so isn’t ideal.
