    Question on the SMP bonus....

    I'm assuming that FahCore_a3 is SMP but am wondering when the extra bonus kicks in?

    I'm running a 6c/12t Xeon and the slot is listing as 12 cpu

    Sorry if this sounds like gibberish... I'm new at this :eek:

    In Advanced Control, on the right side under Selected Work Unit, you see it list Base Credit and under that Estimated Credit. Estimated Credit is the base credit plus what the client estimates your bonus will be. You get the bonus when the work unit is submitted.

    The latest cpu wu is listed as 706/3704 for Base/Est Credit with a 14 hr run time

    Is this good/bad? Will it change as I process more of them?

    The cpu is clocked at 2.4Ghz btw

    Probably :D

    the vrm's on this board got hot pretty quick but will try to get the clock up to 3Ghz or so... don't have any spare boards/cpu's atm so I'm staying on the safe side :eek:

    Do note that the passkey you use must have returned 10 WU's before QRB begins.

    And on my CPU, the a3 core is significantly worse than the a4 core. It gets about 3,3k PPD with a3 and 4,2k PPD with the a4.
    (Quite small sample set, so it might not be as pronounced a difference.)

    Alright, let's see everyone's Chimpin' rigs!

    GTX460 + baked GTX550TI

    8800GT + 9800GTX

    8800GTS G92 + 8800GT

    9600GSO

    8800GS + 9600GSO + 8800GT

    While I love the consistent output of GPUs, I'm less a fan of the tremendous heat output :eek: :shadedshu

    I have too many GPU's, but for the next 10 days, I'll keep them busy.

    How is everyone's luck on getting Beta GPU WUs? I think I have had ~2 non Betas so far- no QRB but they are fast WUs.

    Got my folding badge! :)

    Anyone have a link that lists info regarding the work units (or whatever they're called)?

    Rig is working on a Core 15, a Core 17, and an a3 job atm....

    This doesn't list them, but you can find info on any one particular WU

    http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/fahproject.overusingIPswillbebanned?p=8071

    At the bottom of the page you'll find a space to enter the number of a WU.

    CPU folding doesn't give big points unless you have a monster motherboard with dual xeon's like Buck_Nasty and a few others have. That's why small fry like me fold with the cards and crunch with the CPU.

    EDIT: Congrats on the folding badge!

    Don't make me ban you for using multiple accounts :laugh::roll:

    No problems with work on my end. What about the internet connection for those rigs? Maybe a switch gone bad?

    I'm finding that I have to restart all of my machines to get them to work. Simply trying to restart the client crashes the computer! Never ever had this happen.

    Same problem. Mine doesn't crash the PC, but it does require rebooting to get the completed WU sent off and a new WU downloaded and running. Otherwise it just hangs forever.

    I have one that does that a 465 c2d combo that shuts down the wireless adapter about every three wu. No clue why.

    Gratz Norton on the badge next that Crazy Folder badge!

    I was estimating that ppd Bee. Last night was not a good night for me. Only got 9 1/2 fingers so its hard to count. :)

    7 days of continuous output at an average of 30K should do it if I recall.

    I tried adding my GTS 250 to fold with. The 680's WU was running on the 250 and the 250's WU was failing on the 680. Kept spewing "GPU memtest failure", I'm assuming because it's not compatible with Kepler.

    How can I stop the FAH web control page from opening automatically on MabFold (XPx64)? No matter what I do, it keeps opening whenever FAH starts. There's an "open-web-control" option that keeps reappearing and setting itself to true. Removing it or setting it to false does nothing. Adding <open-web-control v='false'/> to config.xml (and making it read-only) doesn't fix it either.

    ROFL. I just realized right after posting this that the shortcut has it set.

    Quick Question: I already did the 10WU to get the GPU WRB, but do I need to do a separate 10 CPU WUs to get the SMP QRB as well? My initial thought is yes, but I want to make sure.

    I'm pretty sure it's 10 SMP WUs w/ a passkey to get bonuses :ohwell:
