Surprised no one caught this. I just got it on Sat. I'm slowly moving along.
Congratz Popswala! Seems not much going on in forum lately. Summertime and hot temps maybe keeping some away.
Congratz Jstn om 11 mil!!!
This just put a smile on my face cause I just noticed it. Musta got it today. I got the crazy folder badge now.
All thanks to Buck, I'm moving along a lil more nicely now. I went from 17-20Kpnts to 30+pnts today so far and its just a lil past half over. Can't wait to see what a full day brings in.
Now if I can ever build a rig that can do some folding on cpu that'll help out also, as my currents are crunching at the moment.
Your are currently sitting as #2 (Free-DC) so your GPUs are doing great. If you want to go the CPU way either get a 4P AMD or at least a 2P Intel, none off these are cheap but yields more PPD per watt then any GPU.
have no idea what you mean lol. I was looking around (not hard) for some dual cpu boards. like to get my feet wet with one some day. Gotta learn somehow. Theres no way I can afford Xenons and I don't wana invest some crazy amount in something i don't know anything about. maybe in the future when I learn more. So something along the lines of a low end budget dual amd/intel that'll still do decent on folding/(crunhing possibly).
Sorry to use server people jargon...4P AMD is a 4 CPU board ($400 and up), CPUs are not cheap either but still cheaper then the Intel Xeons and Interlagos are sold used where you live for a as low as $2500/four. There is no low cost/high yield duals solutions.
He means something like this: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/foru...cores-canadian-magny-cours-motherfolding.html
That would be awesome to build and play/learn on. But to rich for my blood at the moment. What about getting some older parts that'll still be decent that I can learn on also? I know I can't go to far back due to wu's aren't prob produced for them any longer. I will be keeping my eyes open on here for any to pop up for sale that's reasonable of when I can afford it after I get some currents affairs taken care of of course.
Well after a full day of folding, I'm pulling in over 40k+. That looks much better then 17-20k daily. This gives me a nice warm feeling inside lol. I find it hard to realize that adding a 2nd 460 to the system puts me up that much higher then a single 460.
Wow finally broke my first million!
Depends, my GTS450's are running 9-13k PPD, the 550 (I think I have 1, maybe 2) that puts out around 12-16k PPD.
So you could have had a good day
Reffering to 4p servers being great
its not an imposability to build a Hive for folding and some have, ive now dreamed of makeing a fish tank one a while using cheapish single socket mobos x5 and 5x Amd Fx8120 but regardless of what you put them in it still cant be done that cheap, they do work well apparently
What do you mean by "hive"?
BTW, from an AMD fan, F@H on AMD CPU's sucks!
Personally, I crunch on CPUs and keep my GPUs reserved for Folding@Home. I can then say I have the best of both worlds.
Same, GPUs can't be reliable used by WCG yet, so I feel that I might as well crunch...and then my CPUs contribute to my preferred project
I'll drink to that.
Hive, basically a networked array of computers , but with one as the main mofo , distributing work to be done to the others, i priced up a 36 core setup with 5 processors and mobos 5x psu and memory at considerably less then an actual 4p server, plus each is overclockable and tweekable moreso then a 4p server, sorry i didnt see your post untill now, AMd cpus dont all suck at Folding@home btw, mine and any other phenom suck but, Fx bulldozers do fine as i hope vishera cpu's will.
woot my badge updated at last, its been on 3 mill for months
Congrat's theoneandonlymrk on the badge update! Speaking of 4P, I'm working on a little project that will keep me warm during the winter. BTW, folding steady again with some old hardware.
I saw that you were back on the charts again--what are you running right now?
Great to have you back, Captain!
Kinda embarrassing...but running Phenom x4 9850BE/GTX460 24/7 and filling in with a FX-5000/GTX275 when I'm not surfing. I've gotten rid of so much hardware that there is not much left to choose from, lol.
Well, it's still better than nothing, right? Presumably that's ~30k PPD at least...which is over twice what I'm doing and certainly enough for top-20
I can't speak for others but For me. The parts went to good ppl that is sure making good use of them. No better person to have gotten great stuff that was well taken care of from.
Looking forward to seeing fello folders returning after the heat wave. I might take a hit in the top 20 though but that doesn't matter to the team points we all get together.
I'm personally setting the goal of ~doubling my PPD over the next few months, although I may add a 3rd GTX460-class GPU by spring
Time to get this thread going again!
Congrat's to all folders who partook of "Pie", regardless of flavor(except cement...Sorry TeXBill)
Welcome back to the Top Ten Pete!
Err, who is that masked man in 19th position?
Another 1.6M Point day. Way to go guy's!!!!!!!
