    I OCed the GTX460 a bit more and now I'm doing just over 16k PPD on a 5757pt WU :D

    The deed is done. Both cards are on their way to you. You should have them Friday.

    Thanks Buck, I look forward to putting them to work ASAP. Friday is my 21st birthday as well, so it will be cool that I get them on that day. :toast:

    I have a 7950 OC'ed pretty high. Thinking of doing F@H, but can someone please tell me what has TPU literally done with it's F@H team, I mean I just want to know what you all have accomplished in the science world with folding up to this point, any major breakthroughs due to your higher energy bills and generosity? I don't want to do it unless I know there is some concrete evidence that I am truly helping and just an experiment whore for college interns.

    There is a wealth of information in the first post as well as a ton of links to learn more about F@H (including links to official F@H websites).

    The official blog for F@H is http://folding.typepad.com/, here you will find news about the project including new breakthroughs, new projects, F@H WUs, and much more.

    Just as a side note- a lot of the results and papers are written with an intended audience of other science professionals. Reading them is about as useful as reading white papers on Intel's latest IB processors- it's really like another language to people without science backgrounds.

    Awesome! :rockout:

    If you're just doing the FAH GPU client, you also might want to check out World Community Grid on your CPU (disregard this if you're also doing SMP).

    Have a dual x5260 rig folding 24/7. It's running Madbox linux and gets about 5-14k ppd (depends on the WU of course). It also has a Quadro FX 4600 but for some reason, its not taking any jobs? Anyone have any tips?

    Speaking of SMP, I heard a while back that the -bigadv requirements were going to be raised. Can it still be done with an quad core i7?

    Nope :(

    Have to have something insane like a 16 core cpu now. :shadedshu:shadedshu:shadedshu

    My GTX460 has started getting 2510pt WUs....are these new? Temps are down about 5c, and PPD is down by ~1.5k.

    Try setting it up like your doing it for an 8800gtx seeing as it's the same chip

    My my C2D E8400 has been folding since thursday (not straight though, as I have been away a day and paused the folding a few times) on a WU with a base credit of 1220.83 points (project 7083). It is a lot more work for my rig esp. because it is no dedicated folder (I have put the max work load percentage down to 75% and I pause when e.g. gaming and usually shut down for the night).
    So I think I will have to look for a way to let it only accept WU of a base credit less than ~800.

    I'm not sure you can do that--check with Bogmali or Buck Nasty, they're more knowledgable here than I am. I think you can comfortably set the max load to 100%--at least with BOINC, it doesn't impact system performance. Maybe if you can leave it on more as well--although I do understand that electricity in the Netherlands is hardly free :ohwell:

    I'm hoping to get my new 460s running sometime tomorrow. I have been terribly busy since Friday and haven't had physical contact with the machines or the packages for that matter (my dad said some were waiting for me).

    The normal recommendation for dual core clients, especially those who can not dedicate the machine to F@H, is to go use their CPU for WCG.

    Or not use the SMP 2 and just use uniprocessor and 1 slot for 1 core

    That honestly seems like a waste, that uses at most 50% of the CPU, and uniprocessor PPD is terrible (like 400PPD or something).

    Chevalr1c, if you are interested in WCG, check out the link in my signature.

    I'm going to try and get my GTX 295 online tonight. I'll just need to see how the temps get in my room. But now that I've sorted out my folding rig, if temps stay okay, I'll be folding consistently again.

    Awesome! :toast:

    Presumably that card does in the range of ~15-19k PPD or thereabouts?

    I always ran it at default clocks and it did about 14-16K PPD. That rig also crunches 100% so I know that takes away a bit from thr F@H ppd.

    Not only the electricity, but also because my PC is running in the same room as the one I sleep in (dorm room) so it is somewhat uncomfortable.

    So probably I will switch to the WCG.

    Hi guys and gals, I don't fold but I crunch. Just popped in to say Hi! :)
