My personal background
What are my machines? I've got this little farm:
1: I7-6700K (8 threads) @4GHz, with a Gigabyte GTX1070.
2: I7-860 (8 threads) @2.8GHz, with an Asus GTX1070.
3: I3-2120 (4 threads) @3.1GHz, with a Gigabyte GTX1070.
4: Core2Quad Q6600 (4 threads) @2.4GHz, with an ASUS GTX970. (I know, the CPU is an oldie, but it can still do a little work. The GPU doesn't suffer too much in this old PC, which only has first gen PCI-e x16).

None are overclocked (other than factory overclock on the gpu's). I prefer stability. I run linux exclusively, Kubuntu 16.04, as well as Mint 18.2 with KDE. All 64-bit of course.

I've been boinc'ing for many years now. Originally for SETI, signed up around 1999, with a now lost account. Reassigned to boinc around 2005, since the idea of ClimatePrediction intrigued me. Now I try to run different projects I like. However a costly affair, since hardware and electricity cost a lot of money.

Opinion about BOINCstats/BAM!
For me there's only BoincStats/BAM, it's the only stats site I use. It is well made, and runs well too. I try to donate a little now and then, to help keep it running. I am not into stats only, but I believe they are an important part of the feeling of a reward people get from running these science apps. And maybe compete where they can, if they want to.
Well, that is also why I think it is important to keep BoincStats running, since the community could die out without it, and so would Boinc also disappear.
