    I just started a Q6600 @ 3.1GHz running the A3 core with about 6600 PPD. My ETA is well within the completion time. I had this Q6600 @ 3.2GHz but with LinX the max load temp was 75C. I lowered it to 3.1GHz to bring the temp down a bit. I see my max load temps so far running the A3 core is 59C so I have some leeway.;)

    dhoshaw asked if anyone was running the new 196.34 beta drivers. Well I installed them on this new Vista 64-bit build. I don't know what the problem is but I couldn't start my second card. When this A3 core finishes I probably will revert to 190.62.

    The other thing I'll have to watch out for is Oily taking his position back. :slap:

    Yesterday was another 800k+ day, which is great PPD that we've worked hard to keep. We've got 5.5 days until we run down ATI Technologies. Let's put the boots to them and see if they grab some NV cards to boost their PPD to get us back. :laugh:

    Pie!

    That's two days of progress posted up under one day, and quite a bit of impressive progress to be had. Aside from Oily's and my milestones, vanyots earned entrance into the F@H Millionaire club, and a folding badge upgrade. Also earning some face time was Steevo as he crosses 4 million points. If I'm not mistaken, he too also receives a folding badge upgrade. In the coming days we look as if we'll be seeing a few more millionaire posts, but until then congratulations to the additional stoners tonight.

    :eek: Msgclb snags first place pie.

    Msgclb is coming for third place, second place and possibly even first place given enough time. With the aid of bigadv folding, he's put himself in contention to take whatever position he pleases. His PPD reads about 86k, but if he keeps a steady production of bigadv work units, he should level out around 95k - 105k PPD.


    [​IMG]

    The trend of the team is clearly recovering which was further indicated by a repeat performance of 860k+ today. We've maintained pretty close to reaching 1 million PPD, and it'll only be a matter of time before the next member goes nuts and starts upgrading his(her?) rig(s) for F@H, along with any new members that will join. Keep it up guys, let's push hard for 1 million. With the way we've done things in the past, we'll vastly overshoot and hopefully run ourselves over some Canucks.


    Pie!

    A few milestones come to light this update, starting with Mr. Anonymous as he reaches his 25k milestone and begins on the road to his next at 50k. Meanwhile, roast receives the recognition he's been working hard towards as he crosses over the 100k threshold, and can now sport a folding badge around the forum. Lastly, msgclb crosses over 10 million in mad pursuit of Oily and myself. There will soon be a 3 way slaughter for 3rd place, most likely spilling over to a fight for second. Having little room for upgrade right now, I'm left with preparing my bestest puppy dog eyes for when msg comes to run me down.

    Congrats to all the milestone achievers!

    Thanks. :toast: I believe I got that 1st place pie because both bogmali and Buck suffered downages! This clearly shows that I've had two big -bigadv days. I'm betting I'm getting a few A3 core bonuses also.:cool: Those spikes will come more often if I can put together $200.:rolleyes:

    W00t! Finally got my folding badge. I put together a VGA dummy plug recently, and started using a 9800GT in conjunction with my GTX285, I guess thats how my PPD went up.

    I'm whipped though, my missus decided she wanted a desktop, so I have to sacrifice my 9800 to that build for the time being. :(

    No, no - just make sure she keeps it on and folding all the time. One of my cards is in my wifes PC. I let her turn the folding of when she uses it. As you might have guessed it's not always the folding get turned on after use... :mad:

    I can imagine. :)
    The fan on the 9800 I have is very loud, thats her main concern. I may just get a Thermalright T-Rad2 and just make it passive. That might shut both of them up. ;)

    I tossed around the idea of a T-Rad. And then I debated about getting Zalman coolers. After that I thought about water solutions. All would do the job, but where I have problems is I then look at the price tag and say "for XX more I can get Moar Folding Powah!!!!" Due to lack of 'corrective reminding' from third parties I now have a heat issue (subsequent roaring sound issue too) I need to solve before summer. :laugh: At the same time, I want to upgrade more so I can trounce msgclb and Bogi. :ohwell:


    Having said that, a 3'x3'x18" box has just arrived at my door as of 30 minutes ago.

    Yes you guys have a nice fight. Bogmali just got him self a dual slot board and a pair of Xenos. What's in your box ? Something to fight of Oily?

    I solved my personal heat problem by relocating my i7 rig to my workshop. 4 GHz and less then 50 C @ 1.17 V. 9800 GTX+ GPU is less then 45 C now. Was 70 C in my wifes PC with hardly none air flow. Good for now, but as you say - summertime!? There is only one lasting solution for the heat and that is to get it out off the room.

    At is the operative word! I'd bet you got it inside so what fits in a 3'x3'x18" box? Maybe a supercomputer.:D

    what are the Enviormental Variables to fold with ATI cards without using a CPU core?
    Could someone post them for me please. I will be folding on a 4850 if that helps

    I want a dual socket and a pair of Xeons as well, but that's where the budget constraints thing comes in. I am thoroughly considering a second job right now just to help fund Project Petaflop, Operation Wetification and other projects like home renovations.


    As for what's in the box:

    Its 'step 1', annodized and a whole lot of:

    Buck hit the nail on the head. And that's pretty much exactly what happened when I opened it up.

    Here you go. These are what I use on my 4850. The work quite well. Reduce the load on my CPU to less than 3% and add a bunch of stability.

    Living in Northern California, heat is not a problem. But, I live in an apartment and my living room sounds like a server farm. :( I'm going to move my two noisiest PC's onto my balcony. Just as soon as I get off my rear-end, hunt down my old cable crimping tool, and pass a couple of network cables through an old TV antenna hole in my wall. I already have power outside and I bought a heavy duty extension cord with three connectors on the end. Just right for two computers and a monitor.

    I'll water cool the i7 box when I build it. That's doable because I can reuse most of the parts from the PC in my sig. But I can't see spending the ducats on cooling a bunch of ancient cards in some cheapo boxes. They'll live outside just fine. :toast:

    I found them before you posted there all the same on mine but the FLUSH_INTERVAL is 242 on mine. I found that in the ATI forums when i was looking. Seems that CPU usage is 0% most of the time with spikes from time to time to 4% buy GPU is 100% all the time :rockout:

    That one was a no-go since the seller backed out :shadedshu....


    Tsk, tsk, tsk.....Haven't learned from your previous beatings eh:shadedshu, but you're more than welcome to upgrade bro (can't have it any other way:D)

    Now some news from the frontlines: I come home again to an i7 rig that BSOD'd :banghead: Not sure what's wrong but the OC on that is stable:confused: Glad that the back up worked and it picked it back up from where it left off (89%):D

    try setting all of the voltages to something other then Auto if you haven't already. If that doesn't help lower the speed a mhz or 2 and see if it helps
