I think we need to start recruiting old folders back into it. Maybe some greenhorns, too.
Sent a PM to btarunr for a Frontpage post. It will be posted later today.
I'm having a bit of an issue with trying to run the GTX550TI and GTX460 in the same system. Last night, I had the GTX460 in my HP workstation as usual and was getting ~17.5k PPD from it. I had the GTX550TI in my i7-860 and was getting right at 15k PPD from it. This morning, I put the GTX550TI into the HP workstation, and while it's still working, I'm only getting about 11.5k PPD from it (29k from the two cards, and the GTX460 doesn't seem to have lost anything). Any idea what's wrong? In both cases, both cards have a full PCIe 2.0 x16 bus to work with.
What version of CCC are you using?
Im in, main rigs on it after a few setup niggles is 97 degrees ok on a gtx460x2
No. It will error sooner or later at those temps. Try to get it under 90.
Ok thanks for the tip id move it as its not getting enough air but no other home for it , and damn its loud I forgot why I water blocked my radeons , downclock ahoy.
Removed the side panel from my Prodigy and temps on my card dropped a full 10C. I have my PC set for whisper quiet operation, so airflow was not great in there.
EDIT: SMP7 Client running now too.
Set the Xeon up 2.4 to 2.8Ghz- should improve my output a bit
Thanks to all of the F@H members for their assistance and advice... you guys have been a BIG help for me!
I don't recognize you with your new avatar--this is a problem for me
Good work--that's a sweet system you have going now!
The chimp is talking to me on the phone in the pic
Bumped the clocks on the gpu's and sped the fans up a bit- temps dropped below 70C and we'll see how close I can get this rig to 100k ppd
I jelly that your one system does 50% higher than my 10 GPUs
You're going to have to pick up some 5xx or 6xx cards then
I should be able to at least match your output and 80k should be reachable w/o too much trouble.... don't know if I can deal with the heat/power from going any higher but we'll see
Well I've switched over both my systems. I have a 4GHz i7, a Radeon 5870, a 3.6GHz 1090T and a GTX260 going for the team. No solid words on the 1090T's PPD yet, looks like 14k right now but it hasn't had a chance to speed up just yet. The i7 system is looking like 20k. I do use the i7 a lot for gaming but the 1090T is left alone for DC.
I've got everything up and running for the challenge, the A6 at ~3.5k, an i5 at ~5k, and even an old Turion for maybe 200.
I'll see if I can get an E8400 system started too, it needs an OS first, though.
Forgot to mention this. I didn't set any fancy flags or anything. I don't think my 5870 is supposed to run beta WUs and my i7 isn't capable of bigadv units, but it does seem the i7 is running SMP on its own without any specific guidance. The status page for the other system looks similar.
So what I'm saying is I shouldn't need, or there is no benefit to any special flags with my hardware, right?
So I installed the F@H client... got setup with a name and all.
The CPU started but the GPU kept saying "paused: waiting for idle" so I deleted the CPU (because I thought I read that somewhere), in hopes that the GPU would kick in, but it's still paused.
How can I get it to start folding?
Right click the tray icon and make it "Full".
Ok it looks like it's working as it should, I think... How does it look to you guys? Anything wrong?
As I said, I deleted CPU... should I not have? if so, can I restore it under the Configure tab?
Look at my instructions to Norton earlier in this thread on how to set up for beta for your GPU. You do want to use your CPU and you will need a passkey, also in that post. You can add it back in under configure/slots
Thanks a lot! I did what you said, followed your instructions to Norton, and I think it's all good.
If something doesn't look right, please let me know. Otherwise, I understand that I need to wait for the current gpu work to finish before starting a new beta one. Thanks!
Looks like I pulled around 60k again today.... should see better results tomorrow from the adjustments I made.
Any word on a front page announcement?
Good work! Although I think you should get 50% more than that given the HW tha tyou have
I think that I should end up around 68k PPD today--I expect to settle down, temperatures permitting, at around 65k PPD
Late start for me. No internet for ten days.
Awww f&%$, I knew I forgot about something. I'll be heading to Microcenter by Tuesday to pick up some new goodies to help defeat those damn HW C
