Dammit, ethernet cable was left unplugged since last night. Back up now.
So, I started folding on the 8800 too on my Sandy Bridge build. It pulled my CPU PPD down by about 800, but added a good 4k. I'm at 49k PPD now on my folding rig. I'm gonna OC the shaders on the 8800 to see if I can get it to maintain a solid 50k or more PPD.
Local black out here too - mice (I suspect) had my supply cable to the oven for dinner so when wife turn it on it took out the whole house - one -bigadv with a few hours left died. Then our meter was replace (not related) and wife turned everything off but "forgot" to turn it back on. I'm sitting a couple of thousand of miles from it all and all that I see is mostly zero updates.
Thats it guys pulling the plug.
Thanks for the help, I will be back in about 60 days or so with a new build once I am moved and set up.
Keep up the good work
I'll be out of town starting Monday, if the rig goes down, it goes down till Friday
I tried, but whatever
Good Luck with the move Bow! PM me if your looking for any hardware when you get settled.
Just broke 900,000!
Also GO PACKERS!
Okay, maybe this should be in the Folding hardware deals, but I wanted to make sure everyone sees this. I've made the assertion that every Folder, or at least those who have a dedicated rig, should have a watt meter. This is the best price that I can recall. (newegg.com)
High winds causing intermittent power outages here. I am going to leave my computer off until the winds die down this evening.
I used to have the same problem back in 2001-2003, then after the huge fires we had here in 05 and 07 they buried all the power lines in my area.
Finally got my tx750 replaced. Brought my first folding box up, my athlon sli box, just installing windows on it now, then I'll get 2 260s going on it. Next is a 750i sli mobo, and 2 more cards! Think I just need one more psu to get it done....
That was quick, once you processed the RMA.
Yeah, wasn't sure after all this time, and with no receipt, if they would do it. They did. I just started folding on folding box #1, starting with one 260 to test overnight. If it's good, I'll add a 2nd 260. I should get most of my parts for folding box #2 this week. Still need one more psu, arrrg.
So, this is why you guys run open air folding boxes, preferably with big fans... my gtx260 65nm card dropped 10c while folding in my open air box. I can oc it more now! Hmm, I see lots of fun ahead......
Edit: tonight I'm going to go for 4k updates. By tomorrow night I should hit 6k updates. Just won't be able to match that in the daytime until I get my 2nd folding box up.
Edit2: ug, forgot how long it takes to update windows, esp dotnet, not enough time to reflash my other 260 tonight, I'll try for tomorrow night..... folding farms are a lot of work!!
I'm going "civilized" on one of my open air cooled rigs in a few days but with water cooling to stay below 60 C. A nice big box of stuff was waiting for me this morning returning from Iran (got plenty of time to order parts there, nothing else to do). My new hex is arriving tomorrow and the case and NB/SB heatsinks are due in next week. I almost got all air out of the system so sometime tomorrow I will be running doing 60 K PPD on that rig. My other rig (be down for 10 days, blame the wife) will resume folding tomorrow as well. Nice to be back....
"My new hex is arriving tomorrow" Oh wait,
"down for 10 days" Is it possible to set up Teamviewer and have the system set to auto start so you could check on/restart Folding?
If you can have the system set to auto-start or get your wife to turn it on, you could just place the folding client in start up.
We had two power cuts (short circuit and new meter) and despite my plee for turning the rigs back on she didn't do it. Teamviewer and autostart is not going to help there I trade her for a water cooled 430, any takers?
[FS] is not allowed without pics
My only change is W/O pictures.
Edit: To her defends I have to say that she started both folding engines (GPU2 and 3) on my GTX 260. It worked but since I didn't setup HFM.net to track both I don't know if the point was better. I will investigate the matter further.
On a somewhat related note, I am working on writing an application right now. The way it works is, you run a tiny (0.5mb or less) client on your system, and you can then go to a website (I will initially host it from my folding rig) and see HFM.NET style realtime folding stats for all machines on which you have the client running.
This way, if you are travelling, you do not need to wait for the hourly updates to figure out if you clients have stopped folding. You can just go to the website, even from your cellphone.
I should have the first release ready in about a week or so.
Good luck on that that project. Seems like that the uses have to have port open to a third party all the time, or?
