    The upcoming challenge is for WCG crunching, our TPU Team vs other WCG Teams, but our TPU crunching and folding Teams help each other out with these challenges.

    Prizes are internal for WCG-TPU Team members... donated "by crunchers for crunchers" and this time around we have a very special prize donated for a dedicated TPU folder (the Titan :)). TPU folders who assist with us crunching are elligible for all of the prizes and any TPU cruncher or folder is welcome to participate in our game giveaway during the challenge if they are active.

    Watch my sig for the challenge thread link when it goes live next week to see all of the rules and prizes, etc... Also, your welcome to browse our past challenges to see how they went*

    * we try to get together for 2-3 of these a year ;)

    Crap, heat is starting up here.. and I can't do AC until July due to finances. I'm pumping out until I hit 20mil, and beyond as far as I can, but my 480 is just getting too hot....
    Next round, 6xx series cards......

    Also, I think I brought up rent for the entire building... landlord increased rent 10 bucks for electricity increase. I shouldn't be doing that to low income people no matter what the cause......

    LOL @Norton

    Found a old pic from 2 yrs ago. Back when I was running i7-870's with 2x GTX460's and hammering out 52K PPD per rig. 200K was the bomb back then..

    Ah man. Old trusty lynnfield. Just sold my 870. I'll miss it, and it did it's job well, but I needed more single core performance.

    I it nice that "see" him back in folding action. I wrote to him to use the new drivers (AMD). Is it your 7970 that "only" gets 69k /WU Norton?

    Yes sir... only 69k/WU :p

    I believe I'm using 13.4 drivers, what's the best driver for these?

    *note- will likely stick with 13.4's unless the preferred driver for folding is 100% stable and I can get over 10% improvement in ppd ;)

    Sounds like I'll be switching over then- any issues with the 14.3 drivers that would be problematic?

    I only use the rig for folding so gaming or eyefinity, etc..issues aren't going to bother me.

    Correct, you will get +10% at least. 115k -> 130k.

    I had zero problems with 14.3 and 14.4 but I'm not a gamer.

    Anyone interested in my Asus GTX 660 Ti? It's the slowest version (Asus made like 5 different versions) but Folds at 1000/1137 without a problem.

    Did anyone notice the wind of me passing him must of woke up iFX? He's pumping out again.... and wheee, after a 6 or so month absence I finally nailed my 20mil. It's getting mighty hot in here in the day though, so I may switch to night folding, as least until the hot weather hits....

    Switched 14.4's and it looks like the 13000 jobs are running over 78k each... or about a 15% improvement :)

    So far so good on stability.

    So the end result was a PPD increase from 68.201 (109,340 PPD) to 71,437 (125,760) = +15%. I'm surprised that your 1100 Mhz is less productive than my 1050 Mhz with a stock i7-920.

    That was at 1020Mhz on the new driver. The job in the oven now is at 1100Mhz* so let's see what that does :)
    * ran the clock up after the job started (appr. 5% completed at the time)

    *EDIT- cpu is an i3-2100, don't know how that will compare vs your i7-920?

    If you're not crunching on the i3, I think it's more than enough CPU for an AMD GPU.

    Folding only- the 13000 job I'm working on now is swinging from 6min3sec to 9min20sec atm

    Sure, and I'm sure the CPU part of the WU will go (a little) faster at 3,1 Ghz than on 2,67 Ghz. Anyways +15% PPD for no extra energy or HW investment is nice. I had a meter on one of my rigs and I didn't notice an increase in consumption.

    Sorry for double post. Yes a new install will jump a lot in TPF. I still have some fluctuations (20-30 seconds) but now at least I know what the true one is.

    Question: Is there a chance that running 1-2 threads of WCG on that i3 might actually increase Folding? If the CPU is doing something, it will be at full speed. If it's idling, it will clock down. I know the response time to clock back up is very short. Just wondering.
