    I think I said that awkwardly. Fah has some sort of extra credit for finishing early? On some days I get ~30kppd for one 750ti. Another day I will get ~14k ppd. I am trying to find out why I am getting such wide differences in ppd from day to day. I am thinking from what you said, I am just not getting the extra credit sort of speak.

    QRB=Quick Return Bonus. Available on core_17 and SMP WU's. You only get base points credit for core_15, and you can only run core_15 with your 750 Ti. F@H has always had big differences in PPD between different projects.

    So if I am getting 30k ppd it is because I finished maybe two 14k wu's. Some days I don't finish two so I get less?

    I am just trying to gauge how much ppd one can get from them because it seems to vary so much right now.

    Yes.

    That is, unfortunately, normal.

    I was having a PM conversation with BB, and figured I would cross post this here.

    I am sure it is the similar for you, but I love this computing for science. It gives purpose to my computer hobby. I like to play with hardware, and with WCG and now FAH I have a reason to have 5 computers around the house. I have computers to tinker, to push, to play with. I have a reason to tune performance, because gaming hardly needs it. I would of joined FAH sooner but I was paying for hardware with cryptocurrencies.

    You will be seeing me slowly add more hardware, remove hardware, trying to find a balance of budget and power bill and hardware available. My WCG ppd is suffering a bit but thats ok. I have a new areas to tune for.

    I'm seeing 7970/280X's listed for as low as $150 on CL. Might be a good time to pick some up if you can.

    Just wish I knew how low these GPU's will go.

    Maybe because I started here with WCG, and like big numbers and want WCG pie I feel a pinch, but
    I saw that too here. They will go lower I think. Gpu crypto mining is getting exceedingly hard to do, so I see more and more people stopping and dropping some cards.

    Hey FAH team. I have a little surprise for you.

    Yes, I have two.

    Yeah, crap, I am done. Had to put in the ac today, and on my 15a line, not going to allow folding on a 480. Plus the 30 more I have to
    pay my landlord for the ac, and my rent is going up 10. Now my 485 a month goes down to 445, of which 120 goes to shaw, have to get ecig supplies,
    and the rest goes for food. I don't eat much. Dam I need kepler cards now.....

    Ordered a "pristine" Gigabyte R9 280X Windforce for $200 + shipping used on eBay tonight, crossing my fingers it works fine and will last. It will be going in my home desktop and I'll move the crappy Gigabyte HD 7950 somewhere to fold. If I can't negotiate something with the power usage next month, I'll probably take most or all the Fermi cards offline as they are rather terrible nowadays.

    Well that is a surprise. It is a shame that you don't get the full 76222 point. As I can see you did do more than 10 WU that qualify for the QRB. Did you use your passkey?

    I do have my passkey in. These are beta wu's if that negates QRB. I did just update to beta about 24 hours ago, but you say I have 10 wu's done that qualify so that shouldn't matter. I will be getting the other 750ti on these as well soon.

    quick question, is folding affected by using a 32bit or 64bit system?

    PPD difference? I don't think so. 64-bit will be, of course, the better of the two, but since we're talking about GPU loads that are rather detached from CPU, I would suspect not. I'd wait for someone with experience on the matter to weigh in though.

    I got the other 750ti on beta's late last night. Hopefully it will start churning out a bunch of points. From the extreme overclocking stats I see I have already put in 21187 points from up till 9am. I am hoping I can break 100k on a day today or tomorrow if those estimated ppd of 70k are any bit close.

    145 k PPD in average @ 1128 MHz (mine). Good choice.

    I am at 120k ppd for today by 6pm. It looks like I have two more wu's coming in that will probably make the midnight cut off, but I don't know how quick the validation process is.

    Validation is immediate. If it uploads by midnight, you will get credit @ the 1AM final update for the day.

    And by midnight he means 9PM PDT.:laugh: Of course the client is +7 hours(UTC). And by +7 I mean during DST. When we get back to PST, it is +8 hours.

    That is correct, and I just had two more wu's complete so I am done for the day. Just waiting to see the data.

    Another thing that is helping my ppd is that the last day, and the next few days going forward I have not gamed so ppd should be maximized.

    Looks like I broke 150k on the 6th. These 750ti's are really churning it out now.

    @james888 , your 750Ti's are averaging 68150 PPD (each) based on your points awarded over the last 2 days. Thanks @mstenholm for the help with the bonus calculations.

    Gigabyte R9 280X arrived today in great condition, default speed is 1100/1500 1.2v out of the box, so really no OC needed at all. I hope to have it in my main desktop to replace my year old Newegg bought Gigabyte HD 7950 (repaired last year after all video output died) which I am having problems with again, had driver crashes and I underclocked the RAM to 1200MHz and now the display flickers bad when it changes clock states. Hopefully this 280X serves me well, it's a Windforce board, PCB version 2.0 with a small VRM heatsink too. Right now I am running it through Unigine Valley at pathetic FPS on a s754 board, no issues have cropped up and I don't expect any either.
