Beat a prime k-tuplet world record (by Pttn)

Submit bounties or claim them!
Forum rules
Here are some tasks that will earn you a bounty if you fulfill them! In the other direction, if you want to see something accomplished, create a new bounty!
Bounties must be paid in RIC or reward work related to Riecoin, otherwise there is no real restriction on the type so you may make reasonable off-topic bounties as long as they are paid in RIC.
For bounty hunters, be careful if a bounty is from a recently registered member or low rank member, if unsure to not hesitate to ask questions to the offerer or ask a higher ranked member to act as an escrow agent. Do take an offer only if you are actually and seriously working on it, else you will be cautioned Image.
If you are offering a bounty, you should write precise conditions and must give the bounty if someone meets them. You must ensure that the funds are always available, and if you fail to pay the bounty, you will be permanently banned Image. You may close a bounty at any time, but not if someone is working on it and can provide concrete and satisfying results, even partial. If you close a bounty in this situation, you will be cautioned Image (this does of course not apply if you close due to a deadline).

Beat a prime k-tuplet world record (by Pttn)

Post by Pttn »

Offered by myself, but anyone can increase the reward by sending coins to the following addresses.
If you achieve the task and satisfy the conditions, the unspent coins will be yours!
If someone finds a record, I will fund again the address for future records, though not necessarily with the same amount.
This is distinct from the 7th Anniversary Bounty, though they overlap so you may in some cases get both with a single record.

As some tuples are easier than others to beat, they have different rewards.

Bounty address for the 5, 6, 7, 10 or 11-tuples: ric1qu5a0m5apyc8tuhjpt5gczeevqmr229rzl2yw9u
Bounty address for the 8 and 9-tuples: ric1qhnynu505cej8plhk55k2pq25euf7gh8vfz8vn6
Time Limit: None (but you can claim the bounty only at most a month after it has been added to the Tony Forbes' records page.

Conditions: beat the record with a difficulty at least 5% higher using Riecoin software. rieMiner must be credited in the Tony Forbes' records page.
If you found the record while Solo Mining, you must prove that you own the address that received the Block Reward. In case there are multiple recipients and it is not clear who mined the Block, additional information may be requested.
If you did Pooled Mining, the pool operator is the one that can claim the bounty and decides how it will be shared. Please contact your pool for more information if desired.
You don't have to prove again if you already gave proof for a previous Bounty or if you showed proof somewhere else.
The bounty must be claimed in this topic and it will be paid after verification.

Here is a guide to configure rieMiner in order to look for records.
You can announce your attempt here. For setting tips and discussion, go to the Competition subforum.

Good Luck!

I have just beaten the 8-tuple record with ~5% higher difficulty. What information should I provide to claim the bounty? Thanks!

The information is already known, just give a Riecoin address to which the reward will be sent (or confirm that you want to use the one in your profile).
It would still be nice if you could post your hardware, .conf and time taken in the other topic, this would be useful information for others willing to beat records.

Unfortunately, Tony Forbes did not credit rieMiner :|
For some reason he does not always credit the software so I will not quibble about this despite being a requirement in the Bounty.

Congratulations again!

Firstly I am okay with the address in my forum profile to be used. With respect to crediting Rieminer, it is more subtle, but if you look at the 22. Summary in the Tony Forbes page it does indeed credit the software! As for my specs I used the following config:

Mode = Search
Difficulty = 1075
ConstellationPattern = 0, 2, 4, 2, 4, 6, 2, 6
PrimeTableLimit = 2018655775
RefreshInterval = 5
SieveWorkers = 6
SieveBits = 25
EnableAVX2 = Yes

My CPU is a Ryzen 3600 with 16GB of RAM at 3200MHz. Nothing fancy or high end. The estimated time to break the record was 27 days but I got lucky and found it only in 1 week!
