Whoa! My 2600K is working on a 2692WU. I'm getting 40K PPD, with a TPF of 29:05.
I just got it all cleaned up. I managed to find something purty underneath that ugly evga sticker! Pics will come later
Anyways, i took the pads off the RAM, which is the 8 large ones correct? I left the other 3 pads on everything else. Should this be okay? I figured past would be easy to put on the ram sinks.
WOW, defiantly clean that cooler. I haven't seen one that dirty in awhile. I bet your temps will drop 20C after you clean it. You can reuse those pads like Dub said but the parts you cut off can be used to replace the ones you take off. Clean that cooler for sure.
Edit use the pads for your memory chips a lot of times the space between the cooler and the memory chips is bigger and the paste will not let the chips touch the cooler.
Your making me want to do -bigadv again! If i pause it for lets say 3 hours a day will i still make my dead lines?
That would be amazing! Yeah, it was so terrible i couldn't believe it. If those goes well i'll probably do this to the second card as well!
I love these cards, there great and perform amazing for the prices. They also put out about 12-13k for 100 bucks. Can't beat that if you have the slots!
You can pause if the dead line is say several days. Keep an eye on your deadline or else you will not get bonus points.
Ahh okay cool! 4 mem's down and the gpu is done. 4 more to go till test time and see if all went good!
Finished card! Before folding at these clocks i had fan at 100% fan speed and temps were about 72°C. Now i just ran furmark for about 30 mins, and at the same clocks, 70% fan speed max temp was 65°C. What a difference AND 30% fan speed! Should i do the same with the other card now?
Gonna get the clients up and running now. Had the whole pc off while working on the card.
woot! Broke 100K for the day.
Congrats man! I can't wait till the day i do that all on my own!
Folding at these clocks and 70% fan speed im at about 59C Much lower, me likey!
I just had to turn the 470 on my folding rig down to 725Mhz from 750, coz my roommate is bitching about the heat....sigh
Dang that sucks Is there a window you can open with a box fan exhausting the heat or something?
Yep, crack the other one open as well. Chances are it's just as clogged. I tear every card down once a year for maintenance.
Nope, no window by my system
Tell him to man up..... or else. Seriously, open a window if the heat is too much(that's what i do)
This card is cracked open as well. Wasn't quite as bad, but it will definitely be a improvement cleaning it out! I need to start doing this, and cleaning my rad much more.
Also why is my smp client only getting 7.5k ppd? It's 13% complete on a project 6069 but it says im only getting 7.5k ppd? Is smp that big of a hit? I am using all 8 threads and im at 4.0ghz.
That's low, it should be getting ~10k IIRC
Dedicate one thread away from SMP so it can control your graphics.
Yeah, it's up to about 9.7k PPD now. Is that really all a 920 should get at 4.0?
I've ran -bigadv fine with all 8 threads with 2 gpu 2 clients. Im only running 1 gpu client at the moment as im working on my second gpu.
I can try it though. Also remember im only running gpu2 clients which aren't as cpu intensive as gpu3 clients.
Tell him to open a window or find a new place to live . . . problem solved!
I love TPU! Keep folding all. Sorry, a bit buzzed, but dam I love you guys!
I just sold him a q9450, a 750i mb and a GTX 260. That might explain some things.
Got both cards finished and installed. 2nd card turned out much nicer as well
Temps are below 70° on both cards now with fan speeds at 70% and less Here's a pic of the second card. I love the nvidia tiger claw! Look's much better than that ugly EVGA sticker that was on there.
Also, im gonna need a new NB fan. Mine managed to fall and break a blade and now theres 4 blades left Idk, if i should fold or not on it right now as this thing gets so stinkin hot without a fan and i don't need to fry my board as this is my only rig.
Oh, wow....not a good day today. The guy I sold the i7 920 / EVGA x58 combo to just PM'ed me saying the motherboard is in a terrible condition and there's a smoking smell coming from it.
Up until ten min before I shipped it to him, I had it folding for me. I don't know what happened. Possibly some charge left on the capacitors (it was in anti-static though)? Maybe an OC'ing attempt gone wrong by him?
Anyways, I told him to ship it back to me and I'll refund him for the motherboard.
Newegg sell the same motherboard recertified for 80 bucks after MIR, so at most, thats the amount I'll have to refund him.
Wonder what 2xgtx285s + 3xgtx260s + 1 9800gtx will produce in ppd? And yes, I found out my supposedly dead 260 is still functional. Plus I may try to fold the 9450... homer droolllllll
