Got it! thanks bro!
That was the part I didn't get. Thanks for clarifying, and I'll also need the passkey.
Call me an optimist, but I have a feeling we are going to have a really strong showing this year. Should erase the bitter taste of last years comp from our mouth's.
I'll consider how many cards to donate. I finally can produce not bad points, so not too willing to send them willy-nilly... I know, it's still for a good cause. Let me pass 7mill, and I'll probably not feel too bad about it.
Does the v7 client work with AMD GPU's and i7's? What could I expect from a 6970?
The V7 clients works with all current hardware, CPU (including bigadv) and GPU. It even has the new FAHcore16 which brings the ATI cards up to par with the Nvidia cards on a PPD/watt scale. I don't know the PPD for the 6970.
Does the v7 client work with the HD4xxx series?
Also, will GPU Tracker automatically download it?
EDIT: Apparently, I should use Google before asking stupid questions. I see that the v7 client won't work on the 4xxx series and that GPU Tracker doesn't support it...
Sorta, and no*.
There is no updated client for the HD4xxx and earlier, but V7 will load the GPU2 client for them.
*V7 is so much like FAHtracker that FAHtracker is rendered obsolete.
V7 is a front end that loads whatever client is needed, uniprocessor, SMP (including bigadv), GPU2 for HD2xxx-HD4xxx, GPU3 for Fermi, and the new FAHcore16 for the HD5xxx and newer (with advmethods).
Can somebody send me the passkey for ChimPowerUp?
Are you ready? I need a passkey and the chimp with the wizzard hat advitar.
Might as well send it to me too Bogmali. I don't have it saved anywhere and I cleared out my in-box as well.
hey guys I just cranked up my GTX285 to get ready for the CC! I'm going to try and break 1 million before the challenge starts! My GTX470 is folding very nicely it's the refurbished PNY card at newegg! I like the card so much i may order a GTX480 or another GTX470 monday for CC! .. but more likely a 480.. hehehe
Can someone send me the Chimp passkey?
And we were thinking you were all doing too much of this
To understand this you have to go here http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/chimp_challenge/2011/
Im in again!
Quick question, will my 9800gx2 be much better PPD than my Q9550 & 8800GT?
Also does this look right.
Chuck me a chimp-passkey
What's up Leroy? You're making your rounds again before the CC?
The GX2 will fold better than the 8800GT (2 GPU cores vs 1). The Q9550 I believe is good for 2500-3000 PPD.
Only SMP's (CPU) need the passkey so LMK if you still need it.
Quick questions? I won't be able to donate much as the roommate would kill me for overdoing the electric bill, but what would be the best route to go for running my i5-750 and ati 5850. I also have a ps3 that I can run w/ (it doesn't need psn up and running for that does it?)
What program should I get?
Will I need the passkey?
And the username I should switch everything to is ChimPowerUp correct?
i like to use FAH gpu tracker,but it may not be the best for your gpu,i don't think you need the passkey for your cpu and yes use ChimPowerUp
Have no idea on the PS3.
You will want to use the V7 client because it is the only way to get decent points from your 5850.
You HAVE to select advmethods for the GPU to get it to load fahcore16. Post that explains how: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2248985&postcount=1508
You will want to run SMP on the CPU.
Someone will PM the passkey to you.
BTW, CC is only for 10 days this year. The increase in the electrical bill will be very small for that amount of time.
