you dont want to know what the kill a watt meter is sayin about now haha
meh i ignore mine more exciting that way.
Do you need to run f@h for every CPU core? Or does it just eat all of them at once?
SMP sees all 16
Are the GPU clients PPD slowly declining or are they solid?
You should give HFM.net a shot instead of FahMon so you can see the bonus corrected PPD for the SMP client (they still get bonuses right? I only did SMP for ChimpChallenge)
Did you have an issue with the GPUs winding down to 0 before? The PPD of the GPUs look lower than the first screen shot. Is that still an issue?
yes but fixed with new drivers.
had to dial load back to 75% to keep gpus from hitting 98c
Got home today and started looking around to see what rigs I could throw together. Got the i7-860 and 2x 8800GS below that will run throughout the weekend. Woot for -bigadv.
Also have an unlocked Phenom II x4 B50 @ 3.5Ghz that is good for 7Kppd. I still have a 8800GS sitting here waiting on resistors for a dummy plug. When I get all hardware combined on Monday, I should be in excess of 110K ppd.
Very Nice BUCK
And since everyone's showing some screenies.........I might as well join in
My new toys:
Ah, got some nice 460's I see. I'm thinking of picking up one or two of them in the future.
BTW, let me be the first to congratulate you on 40 MILLION points!
+1 for Bog
Fits, are you still running 2:16 per frame for your SMP client? Buck's running :34 per frame with his i7/860.
it appears buck is running 34minutes per frame with his cpu and im running 2mins,16sec per frame if im reading it correctly.
You mean 34:34 right?
That is actually a good TPF for an 860
I'm away from my other i7's so I couldn't tell you what mines are But I just switched them back to -bigadv (from -advmethods) today
Can you tell that I spent the day chasing my kids around Oaks Park? So why is Fits' PPD so low for the SMP client?
Fits has 16 cores (4GHZ plus) on the SMP I believe that he is running on one client.
16threads @ 4.3ghz yes.
Nice little producer you got there. The 2686 and 2685 WU (-bigadv) are great. The 2684 takes a full day longer.
You are working on a non-bigadv WU. You have to add -bigadv in your command line to pick up an 2684, 2685, 2686 or an 2692. There is however a shortage of these units so from time to time you pick up an 6014 or similar. You want to connect to server 188.8.131.52 (see this linky for server status http://fah-web.stanford.edu/serverstat.html ) My guesstimate is that you could do a frame in less then 18 min with four GPU's folding which is more then 80 KPPD for the CPU alone.
Yep, the megarig would rock -bigadv. Make sure you use the following switches in the shortcut in this order.
-verbosity 9 -bigadv -smp
This is the only way i could get -bigadv to work, coming from a traditional -smp set-up.
any body having issues with the GPU client not getting any work from the Servers.
I got home and 2 of my rigs keep trying but don't get any work packets DL......
Not sure whats up with them. Stopped them and restarted both and the samething happens????
Yup same thing here, both 460's aren't getting any WU's
Sounds like Stanford took off early for the weekend. Again.
Ditto, but a restart got me a new WU
Just thought I'd post this on this team's thread too:
I'm gonna be going back home to Spain for two weeks. Really want to visit family, friends and generally have an exciting break away from stressful London and hard work.
I'm gonna try to set-up another GTX275 to my farm before I leave (= 2x275's + 2x460's). So I may not have internet access to catch up on things here, but my rigs will be hard at work
I hope that all is well for everyone and that good things happen, see you all in 2 weeks
