Additional prize added to original post!
Awesome, the more prizes the better
THANK YOU Newtekie1
Sounds like a good deal here!
Crunching... I haven't started that yet... Going to have to see what I can switch around here... For now I have CPU's doing folding, like 6 of them...
How many points can that GTX260 crank out 24/7?
Count me in!
But it seems like i don´t understand the rules exactly: What username i have to crunch and fold under?
I fold ATM under Laurijan and have 30k points now...
Well I'm now and have been folding under Niko084 and got a machine running for WCG under Niko084 just about 5 minutes ago...
Awesome, what CPU are you running for WCG?
An e6500 but it's used for some other stuff...
I dont get the meaning of this sentence:
Eligible points must be achieved under a user name Crunching for Team#22175 and Folding for Team#50711 only.
Should i name myself "Crunching for Team#22175 Laurijan" and crunch for team 22175 and "Folding for Team#50711 Laurijan" and fold for team 50711?
No he just means under a user name that is crunching for that team.
So whatever your user name is, that is fine.
i think that now my points have leveled back out that i can be in this now.I don't get vary good WCG points my folding points are ok but not the greatest.
As for the question of names, if you have a name that is different between the two projects you can either:
- start a folding / crunching name discrepancy thread where everyone posts up who they are in the projects
- maybe PM one of the contest head honchos with the info so they can make the link and note you to be elligible
And as for the names, I believe there is a place in your user options to enter your F@H and WCG username. I'm sure the people administrating the contest are using the names entered there.
Thanks I never saw that before, got it taken care of though.
Question though, how do you get the buttons for Folding and WCG?
For this contest i began to crunch too besides folding.. i started to fold at the 13th this month but the contest began on the 14th.. can i still use the folding name i use or do i have to make a new one for this contest?
Use your current one. We recorded the points totals b/4 the contest started, so no name change needed.
Aw, F@H was added to the contest requirements too? I'm out then.
F@H has always been a requirement. 100k F@H points and 60k BOINC points.
Oh, I'm thinking of this one. Now I'm confused.
Edit: ah, it's already over. I'm way behind the times.
When this contest started, I asked how many points I could expect from my X2 4400 and was pointed to this chart, which says that I should see upwards of 600 PPD. With all my systems, I should have the raw ability to get 1500 PPD, so averaging 1000PPD should be no problem, or so I thought. I'm unable to run my X2 4400 system 24/7 and I use it for other things like Internet and e-mail during the 17 hours or so that I have it on and I'm getting 155PPD at 80%! I also have a 4000+ running 24/7 and it is used almost exclusively for WCG/Folding and at 90% (it's hurting Folding points) it's getting 107 PPD. Finally, I have a FX-60 running 24/7 at 80% which is used from 4-6 hours per day for other things and it's getting 205 PPD. Total PPD with 5 Athlon 64 cores = 491. 60,000/491=122 days. All systems S939, stock frequencies, Win XP Pro. To say that I'm stunned at the amount of points that I'm getting would be an understatement.
So what am I saying?
100,000 points Folding is easy. I believe that a 3870 or an 8600GT would do enough for the Folding part of the contest.
60,000 points BOINC? Well, you draw your own conclusions. I don't even think the prize for this contest could make 60,000 points in 2 months, maybe with some extreme overcloking! I think this fails the stated goal:
Let me make this clear. I'm not asking for donated points, as a matter of fact I'd be kinda ticked if someone did. I want to earn it myself.
I may solve my own problems with this little PII X4 805 sitting here.
why are you out? what can you fold on?
The average is based from the time you started crunching, and it will eventually pick up. It's a bit more deceptive than F@H as the F@H average is only on the last 7 days, not from user creation. You're actually earning closer to 700-900 PPD as per Free-DC.
Having said that, your values themselves seem low still seeming how I was pulling 550ish from my E4500 at stock clocks.
EDIT: I should also note, you've earned 1134 so far today. Don't forget, the WUs can take days to validate too.
why am i only getting ~300 PPD?
