Overclocked the 750ti, and got just over 33,000 today. Under 50 watts.
Hmm, good power usage, but same ppd basically as my 480. I don't pay for power, so not an issue. So I might look at 660/tis then.....
What time frame?
Pretty darn quick... if I heard some numbers... I could budget. It's pretty much done now so....
Within 2months, I would prefer, even if I don't eat....
Well, that would be one month, as I'd send a payment
Seeing used 770s for 250, I could handle that I think....
Picked up a 7850 (MSI TFIII)- it's installed and will try it out for folding for awhile. Temps are great so far with the Twin Frozr III cooler (42C at full load )
So I had run into some hdd/backup/program/ssd-hdd arranging/folder placement and disappearing/weird voodoo over the last few days, and it caused a problem for me both crunching and folding. I had to reinstall both programs, and since I was still in the process of backing up/reinstalling stuff, I had paused my folding and crunching.
Resumed BOINC last night, and I forgot to resume F@H, so I'll be back tomorrow with some progress!
Never-ending issues seems like
Well that just sucks bro! Can ya say "Friday the 13th?"
Full moon too, I hear.
Oh yea, forgot that. LOL
Gaming is half your problem. You need to quit that addiction cold turkey.
Really, I haven't been gaming as much as I would like to. The failure to resume this time was from the backups and resinstalls going on; I didn't want to slow anything down or anything like that.
Now, i try to game on my wife's PC, which does fine most of the time. @[Ion] is the one that introduced me to acclimating to gaming on less than ideal system with less than stellar graphics while the better systems are busy, but I'm finally catching on
Edit: and why is Ion the only person I seem to not be able to tag here?
We started a thread for a cruncher/folder project build in Kreij's honor:
Very interesting. I can't get it to work either, even though it looks like it will.
Enjoy. There won't be another Full Moon on Friday June, 13th until 2049. I'll most definitely miss that one.
That is a very good question? Is his username still on the site?
And still don't know what has happened to him.
Ion is taggable but you have to use the "long way" for some reason
Hey folks, if anyone wants to break free from Windows on NVIDIA based machines for F@H (and WCG which hasn't been an issue before), I did some experimentation last night and got F@H GPU folding working on a GTX 470 on an existing Mint 15 x64 system running just WCG previously. I may be able to answer some questions about it (be sure to check the last post especially) in this thread: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/how-to-install-opencl-ubuntu.202050/
How much can your ppd vary day by day? I was getting ~30,000 and today and yesterday less than 20,000. I did overclock and I worry that this is a sign my overclock is not folding stable.
Where are you getting your stats? Because of how long it takes to finish a WU, the different PPD of different WU's AND how (seemingly) arbitrary Free-dc's updates are, Free-dc can show wild swings. EOC shows points in lock step with F@H and lists the points and when you submitted them. That's why I use EOC. On EOC, you've gotten 19,280 points per day for 3 days running. Free-dc shows you at 33,373 points today while EOC shows you at 14,093.
OC'ing: Look in the log and select the "warnings and errors" box. If everything is running okay, you should only see a list of days. If anything else is there, you have a problem.
I get them from free-dc. Yesterday I got 19,000 and today it looks like I had 14,000 but I must of looked a bit too soon. I have 33,000 today so all good.
If your overclocking is too much you'll see other things besides PPD variation. Such as complete lockup of the PC, loss of mouse control, or extremely slow task switching. Bluebumblebee is correct. Your PPD is just fine. And thanks for adding to the team.
Well good, my overclock must definitely be stable. I am even crunching full bore and the computer feels nothing but responsive. I have another 750ti I plan to add to the mix here soon too.
In your boinc settings, is your cpu set to 100% while also folding? When I started folding, I dropped that down a bit but if I don't need to, maybe I'll bump it back up.
@T-Bob and @mx500torid , You've gotten credits for 8000 points. What's up with that?
Also, found out that beta testing of AMD GPU's under Linux is going on. (since the end of May) You must set the GPU slot to "client-type advanced". Yep, beta testing under advanced.
