    The recent has inspired me to fold some more. Used to under no team, but I joined Techpowerup's, to help them get in the top 100!

    I started up my server folding a tad too, so that should help out. But I do leave my desktop on during the day, so might as well fold some when it's sitting idle. I have been using the Console cpu version on my server, and my desktop in the past, but would I be better off folding on my 8800gt? Is it faster/more efficient to fold on a gpu?

    Did anyone notice in the middle of 2 pages of flaming that there was a post about GPU temps? Well, I'm done with this subject and have nothing else to say. Back to folding:rockout:.

    Thanks for joining Squirrely :toast:

    GPU folding does the job quicker. The WU - Work Units - are bigger but will finalize before the CPU ones.

    For me both, CPU and GPU WUs are very important!

    Thanks for joining! Let us know if you need any help configuring the clients. Like mmaakk said, GPU folding is the most efficient. Your 8800GT is a decent folding card.

    It got answered. :toast: btw thanks for not overlooking my post

    EDIT
    +1 the 8800GT puts out some nice PPD. Just alittle tip for Squirrely. Lower the ram speed to ~700 when just folding set core ~600 shaders 1600-1800(depends on temps and how your card clocks)

    Well, my server is doing CPU WU's, and I will set my desktop up to do some GPU WU's, so there will be a balance from me. :D

    (Question about the Console version) When it is in the middle of completing steps/folding, if I wanted to quit it, what would be the best way? ctrl+c? Or would that mess things up? Should I wait until it is complete? As for example, I only set my server to use 50% cpu usage, but I may raise it to 75% to speed it up a bit. Was wanting to change that with the config, but as it is currently folding, not sure how to end it to change it.

    CTRL+C is the official way. It may take a minute for all processes to shut down.

    Ok, thanks. Was afraid of messing a few things up if I did.

    I'm absolutely horrified by the response of some to the whole Stephanie thing. We all fold for the same cause. If we want to cheer up a young girl who is dying, for a month, that shouldn't be a bad thing. We all fold for different reasons. My dad and grandmother died of cancer. This child is dying of cancer. Give this girl a smile before she dies. If we hear of other dying patients, maybe we could do the same thing again. How about not being so selfish with your expensive equipment, and stop caring about how many points, and what position you are in today? These points help everybody. Just fold!

    If you people want to believe this is a scam than do so. Nobody is making you participate, but I don't want to hear anymore about it. It is in very very poor taste and any further comments will not be tolerated.

    You're making this forum look very bad.

    If you're talking about the folding for Stephanie thread there was like four of them; they've all been redirected to one.

    Everyone check your clients. Someone is folding under Anonymous as of yesterday(02-04-09). If you are a new folder and cannot find your updates on the Stats page, this could be why.

    We're 105th! We need more folders, or I need 8800 GTS!! TEN of them!

    On a more serious note, is the ATI client still restricted to using only 320 SPUs per card?

    Is there any point in running a smp client on an athlon x2? If you're running a gpu client too? My smp production seems like it would take a week to do a 1760pt job, if I separate the jobs according to cores, then 2 a1s go on one core and the gpu client on the other core, otherwise all 3 run on both cores. Seems to make smp moot, but what do I know! Any ideas on this, or should I just wait until I have a quad?
