Heheh, I'm pwned! Hey see this team flt? We were the fastest rising team until these guys- almost 1million points just today! We've done 211k in comparison. Wow. Sure would like to know what they're using...
i heard you can fold on a ps3 is it really worth it? also is it better to use the smp client vs the regular one?
Congrats to Mmaakk for achieving 1 Million points!!!
Sorry but this pic was the first thing that came to mind..lol
Seriously, thanks for being one of the driving forces behind the team lately and being there for tech support on the forums. Cheers to Mmakk!!
There is a bit of controversy with Team FTL. Supposedly the F@H client was distributed with a no cd crack and the users opted to fold under Team FTL. Here is what i found @ [H]ardForums:
A new folding force...game pirates
Yep, it's happening right here http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...hp?s=&t=149135
They are distributing the FAH uniclient with a Far Cry 2 no cd crack, here is a snippet of the instructions:
2. (Optional, utilizes spare CPU cycles***)
NOTE: Please don't do this more than once (If mentioned in other cracks)
a. Run FAH.exe.
b. Enter the following:
Username: Any username you like
Team number: 149135
Launch Automatically... Yes
c. Then, close the window.
My team has been monitoring them almost a week now and obviously they are adding a lot of new machines. We have notified Stanford and they are looking into the situation but thought you guys might want to discuss, if you hadn't already seen it.
hi. I start folding yesterday and now im really not sure about my ppd.I use a hd4850 overclocked 650/1050 and my cpu is a E7200@4208mhz(cpu ppd seem low to me??) thank
Your ATI card is doing great!! Average PPD for 4850 is = 2,204.
Take a look @ this link:
Bow and Buck -> Thanks for the support!
New Nvidia Work Units
We have new Nvidia work units that started showing up today. They are 384 pt and fold a bit slower. My 8800GS's are getting 4200-4400 PPD. Watch your temps, as these WU will produce more heat. From what I see on my rigs, the 180.60 Beta drivers are folding these better than previous drivers. I will experiment more and post results. Here is a quote from the folding forum:
New GPU projects 5749-5764

We are releasing some exciting new projects for the NVidia GPU clients. These are full production runs of larger proteins that should really test the limits of fast folding simulations.
ACBP, a helix-bundle protein with 1392 atoms, being served from vsp07v.
See for details: http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/fahproject?p=5749
Protein L, a mixed alpha/beta protein with 973 atoms, being served from vspg4v2
See for details: http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/fahproject?p=5757

Thanks for the info. Buck. ATI has new WUs also. You'll get ~300 Points and they are only 1 hour faster than the 511 points WUs.
great,I am really surprise about my ati.I was not sure about Palit,but it run cooler and have more ppd then my dead sapphire 4850.max temp reach 50 (sapphire around 75). thank@ mmaakk
stanhemi, just curiosity...
Explain me what is your avatar's pic?
my swiftech 240mm radiator.
Interesting, my 280 got one of those 5757 jobs, temps went way up, but ppd inreased from around 7900k to 8500k ppd. Gpu temp at 77c though, good lord!
Also, results server seem to be down again, got 2 jobs ready to be sent. Update: server up again. Now working on a 5763 job, ppd still up at 8500.
My gpu's folding away at a 5758 job. About 2 hour completion time, ppd with this WU for me has dropped abouit 20%.
Temps don't seem to have changed much for me.
Wow, quite a variety now.. 5751 runs at normal temps, but ppd down to 6k on the 280. Also with the newer jobs, it won't let you use core 1.15 anymore, which is causing problems for my 9800gtx, it just keeps eue ing, even at stock speeds. Think I'll stick it in my server and replace the 8800gs to see if it will work by itself ok. I really hate losing 1/3 of my production!
I started folding last week, using GPU & SMP client (8800GTS640mb & Phenom 9950@3,0ghz) (app. 6500-7000ppd)
But Sunday my pc became very unstable, found out the 4-pins 12V CPU connector on my MSI K9A2 platinum was burnt!
Luckily my pc is still running@low speeds, but no more folding for me at the moment!
I'l be back when my new Asus M3A79-T (with 8-pins CPU connector) arrives!
My ppd has dropped from 5100 to 3700 with new WUs.
Thanks for joining Maikel205. Are you looking to get rid of the K9A2 Patinum? Let me know. I hope we get back to the 5300 work units soon. My PPD is being slaughtered!!! Keep up the good work.
Ok, put the 9800gtx in the server by itself, folds like a banshee! So tried the 8800gs as my 2nd gpu in my main rig, eues again.. I can seem to get 2 gpu clients to work on my mobo with the 1.19 client, sucks! I did over 50 jobs on a 2nd card on the 1.15 core, zero eues. Compatibility issue between the 1.19 core client and my nforce590 sli chipset? Update: I keep a copy of a clean unused install, and restarted the 8800gs, and now it's folding. So is the 9800 still, so now I've got to sit and watch both for eues, weird stuff, cross fingers all.....
I have been folding with the 1.19 core since it came out. My ppd is great and no IDLE clients at all.
Not missing the 1.15...
Give the 1.19 a chance. Satisfaction guarantee, no idle back!
I'm on my way to my 4th Quad rig. Ordered 2 9600GSO and the PSU today. In 3 weeks I will have the Mobo/CPU/Ram/Case/2xGSO's. Tryin to do this with cash and not run up my credit cards. Gonna fold the GSO's on the HTPC in the meantime. Shooting for 100K by New Years, but who knows with the new work units. Out of 14 GPU's, I only have 3 running 480pt WU's and Fahmon shows my ppd @ 52K, down from 77K.:shadedshu
Do drivers really make that much difference for folding?
The new Beta 180.60 drivers do work to lower CPU usage substantially. I still use the old Fahcore 11 v1.15 GPU2 core, as I feel it works better for me. Everyone has their own opinion.
I'm using both the 180.60 and 70 drivers, but fah keeps updating my core 1.15 to the .19s.. arrg
I guess core 1.19 doesn't like South Florida as much as Toronto.
Buck observe the pic. - 2008.11.26 - 21:45 eastern time -5.
I have 4 GPUs folding but my "today" points are more than half of yours??
What's the explanation for this?
Maybe the model of video card used?
