Set what where to idle?
Set SMP to idle and GPU's to low(low is a higher priority than idle). Let all clients have access to all cpu cores(no affinity).
Question for those Folding on XP with ATI:
What is your experience with Cat. 9.3? I am seeing a reduction in PPD that is infuriating. I am not seeing a reduction in CPU utilization as some have reported. Here's what I've seen: 511 Wu dropped from 2439 to 2122 and the 384 from 3040 to 2633. That's roughly a 13% drop! So, while others are seeing an increase, I'm going the other way! I went back to the 9.2's and saw the same PPD's, so this may have to do with the project download for FAHMON which gave more points to some of the Nvidia WU's. I've tried to register at THE FAH forum but for some reason it will not sent me an activation e-mail. I've wanted to ask mhouston some pointed questions. The only change to the machine that this is running on is that I dropped the RAM from 2 to 1 GB, but the amount of RAM does not seem to make a difference. Yes, I did the 9.3 install, the hotfix, the copy and re-name, and deleted the core. My ATI clients used to be rock solid, but I've gotten up to VPU recovery crashes (it used to VPU recover and keep on going) the last 2 nights that has cost me at least 500 points per night!
So, are the benefits only with Vista? I have a copy of Vista here that I could install, but I don't want to spend the time if it's not worth it.
I'm Very Happy for your "hidden" extra PPD
Just don't start calculating all the points you lost not using my TIP before
...sorry Buck. I'm mean!!
113K last 24H
C'mon guys! Can't believe with my 2 pitiful cards I've been maintaining a position in the top 20 for days! Pump!
johnspack is correct...Get movin' TPU folders!!!!
I'm a late starter so give me some time and I'll catch up with all of you. Hopefully will get 9800GX2 and start folding it this week
Just broke into the top 100. I'm coming for you BUCK NASTY! Not really, just sounded cool at the time.
I should be in the top 100 in the next couple days or so
24hr average should catch up too in a few days and get me in the top 20 producers as well.
You may catch me. I have a electrical circuit problem and 2 rigs tripped a breaker today, so I lost half the farm for most of the day. Must be those damn 511pt WU's. Trying to re-balance the load across 3 separate 15A circuits so this is not a daily menace. I was looking to purchase more GTX 260's, but have no juice to power them with.
After I get done setting up a couple drives in RAID0 on my main rig and eat some dinner, I will try to get my 2nd rig up and running temporarily for some added boost.
Received my 9800GX2 today, will be replacing my 2X8800GS. I will put them up for sale shortly on the F/S/T section.
Congrats on the 9800GX2. Offer the cards to folders prior to posting in the F/S/T section. I will have another 8800GS to move also. Guy's, here's you chance to throw together a quad folding rig on the cheap.
You're probably pulling enough juice to start raising suspicions! You'll have the rozzers round checking for a weed farm in the basement!
There you have it folks. PM me if interested
BUCK NASTY, what's your overall rank? Never mind...198...Good job buddy.
And who do we have right behind me for points today? Congrats dak1640 on 90K avg ppd, as this is no easy feat to accomplish.
TY BUCK NASTY...I need your help. I am an experienced PC guy but I can't figure this problem out. I have a GTX 260 that run ok for awhile, then runs at 1/2 speed after about 10 hours or so? It's running on an x35 Lanparty MB with a dual core. I am running Dimes to keep the CPU active...I don't know if it's the BIOS of the Mobo or the GPU causing this downspeed. BTW, it win XP so solid os...Any ideas????????????????????????
Is it possibly going down to 2D clocks? Monitor it with Riva Tuner or eVGA Precision to see. My GTX260 used to drop down to 2D clocks when the screen went to screensaver mode. Solved it by disabling the screensaver and power saving modes. Now I jus tmanually turn off my monitor when I fold overnight.
sorry guys but i have i think i have folded my 9800GT to its death. Everytime it gets stressed my screen gets fuzzy and kinda moves like it does when it is overclocked WAY too high and my games crash now. I know its not the clocks the temps the PSU or drivers
tested it with my 700w OCZ PSU same thing went back to old drivers still same underclocked to 350/800/750(C/S/M) turned fan speed to 100% temp is 59-60c load (underclocked)
So now all i am going to have folding is my 5kBE and Sempron 2500+
So I have a question about PPD and WU. I have my EeePC's Atom N270 OCed to 2GHz from 1.6GHz folding 24/7, but I have the SMP set up like it is on my i7 940, so it's getting the big work units and doing AVG 330PPD, but I don't think has finished many WU's by the deadlines. Now should I re-do the client to do smaller WU to get more of those, or like normal for a 50/50 split, or leave it as is. Similarly on my Dell laptop, that does around 1100PPD and get a WU done at those settings in 2-3 days, but gets them completed by the deadlines. Should I make any changes to that either? Pic of FahMon and CPU-Z on the EeePC.
Screen saver off, Core at stock, shader just a tad over stock, etc. Power saving on Mobo off...How do I check for 2D clocks in RT or Precision?
Bring up the monitor in RT, it is a graphs of the current clock speeds and temps and such.
I wonder what kind of farms the guys who are number one. Meaning the genuine single handed folder is.
Yepper, it is switching to 2D clocks...WHY????????
