Otay ! Im tired and the herbs are tellin me to trust ya Plz leave the OC to me
Installing it now.
TV is great, I've used it to set up a bunch of people's rigs
My SMP client shows 'normal' instead of SMP.. version 6.3 ..
After switching to the 6.32 gpu client, from 6.2, it wont recognize the "-gpu 1"(gts 250) flag and uses GPU 0. I dont want the 9800 doin much untill I see the GTS 250 running stable long term. Then Ill find another Zalman or desc gpu cooler and give it a go.
Sure you have the -smp flag?
PM me your TV ID/PW if you want me to take a look at it
HFM reads it but shows as norm..
The only other issue was with the 10.9 Amd southbridge drivers. I had to manually install the 2010 Visual C++.
Ive also uninstalled the gpu client... again...
T-2days til my next large milestone
I'm coming up on 50k (finally), but I'm having a few problems. I've noticed that what I think is the nVidia GPU client is not using much of any processor time where as the AMD GPU client (I think) seems to be maxing out one thread. Possibly related, the SMP CPU client on Desky is only using one thread.
Desky - Sig rig, Win 7
Lappy - Core Duo 1.6GHz, Ubuntu
Dello - Celeron 2.0GHz (P4), Win XP
Prof - P-IIIs 1.4GHz, Debian
Quick Edit: My PPD has been horrible today and yesterday. With the GPUs alone, I've seen closer to 7800 PPD.
Well its normal for the Nvidia Client to use next to no CPU resources, its pretty efficient. My 2 clients rarely exceed 5% combined. The ATI client is notorious for hogging CPU resources
I've mentioned this a lot, but the 494WUs really suck. They make me loose 1kPPD per card on average. So I wouldn't worry about the low PPD you are seeing on that client right now.
ATi GPUs just use a lot of CPU
You may be best off not running an ATI client and running SMP instead. And, I don't know how much the laptop is on, but it should be able to run SMP as well
Mucho thankyousss to [ION] for taking some time to help Fightin for desktop control is fun !! lmao
Still not sure why it wont use the GTS 250, even though the flag is there.
I had no probs toggling between the two before the windows install. hmm..
Will fresh install once more and see if the Ati 10.9 sb drivers install glitch, is to blame.. goin with 10.8 as before...
p E A C e
Have you tried gpu -1 and GPU -0? See which one the client picks up with each.
thanks AGAIN KieX for doing the setup lol
Won't be long before you earn the 100k badge or even the Crazy Folder badge if you OC those puppies a little.
im doing around 27-29000PPD assuming i have the rig on all day,
i can even play games on with with very little or no lagg
I've been given the OK to get a GTS450, so should have one of those by the weekend. That and the 260 should be 17-23k
the 450 does around 9000PPD its a beasty little one
Nice to see a few members preparing for a tropical summer winter
rather spend money on hardware than heat lol XD
with hardware you can haz heat AND hw pr0n at the same time = win win
I dont know what to think... !! At first it kept using the 9800gt even though I added the flag on the 'configure' page. Then I tried making a new shortcut from the program files folder and added the '-gpu 1' flag to the shortcut properties page, with noo go. Then removed the flag again. I re ran the start menu shortcut, unedited, and for reason, the client picked the GTS 250 ! Just as it did when I first added the 9800.
Cpu fold just finished.. Will retry setting it up again..
ok.. there must be a ghost in the house @@!!! The cpu client that just finished, showed as 'normal' when it was running on my previous install of windows. I stopped it at about 80% and saved it on my D: drive.. I just noticed it now says SMP lol .. wtf..
Its seems okie dokie now.. I did a "-smp -configonly" and removed the "-smp" from there.. but kept the one in the command line
Added my GTX295 to list of for sale item's
Will give a discount to fellow folders
That's an SMP WU
Which GTS450 do you guys think I should get? The Asus DirectCU/TOP looks nice (OCs well, custom cooler, etc), but an EVGA might be nice for step-up to a GTX460 later. Hmm
EVGA then, also, get one with rear exhaust if youre using it for folding, the asus will spread the heat inside the case
Unless you fold with naked rigs, then the heat dissipates quickly.
The DON is moving on up! Good job buddy.
