    TPF=Time Per Frame
    Do you have a Passkey?
    Also, you have to finish 10 SMP WU's before the bonus kicks in. You don't want to do bigadv WU's for those first 10.
    I think you are just doing a SMP WU. (5 hour eta)

    Should have clarified it was first time with SMP and 8 cores. Back when I started I was under the impression you had to do something complicated with VMWare images to be able to do more than 4 cores.

    I think I might have done 10WU in the past with SMP and my passkey from last year. Any way to find out?

    EDIT: OK, just found out all I had to do was enter my username and passkey into donor stats search of the F@H site. Seems I requested 2 passkeys from 2 different email addresses. The one from last year has 23completed SMP WU.

    Seems also that the way this V7 client is setup, it forces you to do a SMP before downloading bigadv as the next WU.

    yup looks pretty good from here Kiex and TPF = Time Per Frame, each WU gets divided into x frames for your CPU or GPU to work on. F@H then calculates TPF so it knows roughly how long your CPU/GPU will take to finish the WU ie: ETA

    Thanks, makes a lot more sense now. Think I finally got to grips with this bigadv stuff now.

    First one is running now, a 2684 WU with TPF 38min. Going to take 2 days to complete.. damn it's a big WU!

    Started folding with my GTS450 in another rig today. Running 267.59 drivers, and all I get is a failed unit after about a minute. This card is running 100% stock settings, and I have tried the latest 270.61 drivers also. Any ideas whats going on?

    EDIT: added log.

    4X4n- "These errors indicate an I/O hardware problem or perhaps an AV program preventing FAH from writing/reading certain work files."

    Try running your clients as ADMINs just like TBBB said or give it some permissions on your AV program.

    I got it worked out guys, thanks for the help. After many installs, re-installs, driver cleaners, it's working great now.

    I understand the fact that Nvidia folds better than ATI.But am curious as to how much better? Does ATI get approx 70-80% of what and Nvidia does???????Or is it much worse?
  11. twilyth Guest

    I downloaded the most current version of F@H and I couldn't find any way to limit it to just running on my 5770. There seemed to be 4 instances of it out of 8 threads on a 2600k. I did look at the wiki for config options but putting -config after the program didn't work. Also it didn't remember my user name and team assignment.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Not close to 70 or 80% but with the new V7 client, I'd say 50-60% (someone post some #'s for comparison).

    Which client did you download, the V7 or the standalone? Post some screenies my friend;)

    both my HD5770's get roughly 6600ppd each if I don't run an SMP WU if smp is used aswell they get around 6200/6400ppd each at the moment I can do 7 WU's per day for 12845 points

    opps nearly forgot.... that's with the new open beta v7.1.24 as there's still work being done on it I'd expect to see further gains in PPD for ATI/AMD GPU's

    oopps nearly also forgot with core_11 gpu2 WU's I only used to get max 2500ppd each card

    dl'ed 6.23 - it was the first one on the download page here -http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download

    There are no screens except for the config screen (with 3 tabs) which tells virtually nothing.

    Here:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2257743&postcount=1514

    Download it and follow the hyperlinked tutorial. Since you have a 5XXX series card, you can take advantage of the most recent optimization for ATI/AMD cards. Scroll all the way down on the tutorial to where it starts talking about the beta 5 series ATI/AMD card work units.

    You can also reconfigure that client later on if you decide to add your CPU for some SMP goodness;)
  16. twilyth Guest

    OK, I installed the client and set the preferred mode to GPU and I only see one instance running. The client view program is just a dos window though. I guess there is a list of instructions somewhere for controlling it?

    I'll install the monitor software later after I reboot. Right now I've got 2 instances of the console and the client window won't close.

    How come no tray icon? Which program do you use to control the client?

    Thanks.

    I want to get my 2x 6950's folding for the CC. Do I need a dummy plug or was that just a Vista deal? Can I keep my cards in xfire? What program should I run?

    Thanks

    Well...,

    First, thanks for trying this now, instead of when CC has started.

    You will want to use the new V7 Client. Use the link in Bog's post (post 1542) to install it and make sure you select advmethods to make it use the new core16. I for one am anxious to hear how V7 handles two ATI cards. Xfire has always needed to be disabled for Folding before but I don't know with V7. Please let us know. Might I suggest you also read through http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=143124 . Some of those links are older...
    Dummy plugs? I sure hope not.
    Bow says thanks.

    No need to disable Xfire any more and your right an dummy plug is not needed anymore
    I fold with Xfire enabled turn it off and one card stops folding

    Slightly OT, but since this is for the CC and I know that you guys know how to OC for Folding...,

    To help me save time, will someone(s) please point me to a good (but short) guide(s), or source(s) for OC'ing the following:

    Phenom II X4 805 that's on a (cheap) Biostar A880G Only trying to get to 3.0, but maybe more for CC.;) CM 212+

    i5-650 on an Asus P7P55D-E Pro. I can get it stable to 3.6 from 3.2 stock, but above that I'm having problems. I'm expecting 4.0+. In a CM ATCS 840 with a H50. Got the case and cooler for $80!

    you'll get better performance by increasing the HT/NB clocks more so than just purely upping the core clocks
