    Hey guys, just saying that I finally brought the 290s back online toinght. The problem is that I can't be folding 24/7, as the my power bill this time was much higher. :( So I'm going to run a little bit, like 3 days/week. I heard that if you keep pausing, you lose out on the bonus points so my plan is to let it fold for a few days, then stop it all together til another few days pass. I hope it works; i'll know in a little bit i guess.


    Sounds like you got a decent card, and I hope it continues to go well. Despite what most think and say, there are some good deals to be had on ebay.

    I just ordered a 270x the other day that'll go in the other pc. I hope that one works out, but it's going to give me issues I think, as it was listed with a fan/cooler problem lol. However, a new cooler is being shipped with it, so I'm hopeful :rolleyes: If I can keep the power low on that one, it'll fold 24/7, as does the 7770 still.


    Anyway, it's awesome to see you all still doing great work, and I hope to be able to share in that :toast:

    That pesky power bill keeps sneaking up. Instead of running two cards half of the week, why not one card all week? (..unless F@H has scheduling to make it easy in which case I suggest both cards half a week for maximum F@H pie.)

    In the Client v.6 days, I copied what @bogmali did and had shortcuts on the desktop for different things that I wanted the client to do. One of the things that you could get the client to do back then was to do one work unit and then stop. You can still do that, but you need to tell the client to finish. @manofthem , would it work for you to run them only at night? You could just run one WU/GPU/night. It would be best, (points wise) because of the QRB system, to always finish a WU instead of pausing.

    @xvi and @thebluebumblebee I had considered both options, though with less info. I'm up for whatever the configuration with the best points really. I was thinking about having one run more often instead of 2, but that idea of having it run at night just 1 WU sounds pretty good to me.

    I'll give that a shot I think, but as I don't know how to do it, I'll be looking and asking for some guidance :oops: but it'll have to wait til tomorrow night lol.

    Thanks for the info and suggestions fellas, I appreciate it :respect:

    R9 280X installed in my main rig this morning, AIO watercooler is running dry but got it primed by tilting my case 90 degrees backwards and thankfully the pump picked up some water before the machine would have thermal shutdown again. It is reading 140-150K estimated PPD at 1100/1500.

    I took the Gigabyte 7950 and put it on my K8NF6P single core Athlon64 for now, seems the WU it is working on (9406) has checkpoints every few percent where it pegs the CPU at 100% with no GPU load, and then settles to 20-30% CPU usage and 86-90% GPU usage, supposed to be around 97%. That's probably where the PPD discrepancy is coming from, something with these ancient K8 chips is holding Core 17 back I guess, and perhaps it doesn't translate into full CPU usage..

    Got my pump installed finally a couple weeks ago but then went on a trip, I'm back crunching/folding now and kicking the 780 into high gear!

    Dam, I'm so broke for the summer... 60 more rent for ac, extra bills, still paying off my $400 monitor... I need to fold for my mother and father who died from cancer. Sept I'm looking for good deals on kepler cards. Need one primary, such as 770, and then any folding cards, like 660s, 750s. It's very important to me now, so I will try to do one payment deals ect, food is no longer a concern. Please keep me in mind, I need to break 30 mil!

    My MSI B85-G43 Gaming and Pentium G3258 ("Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition") arrived today, so the Gigabyte HD 7950 has something that won't bottleneck it. Overclocking is locked due to the chipset, so it's running stock and I'm working on voltage tuning it (currently 0.9v vcore). It's currently being used to run a game client using the IGP and the HD 7950 is running headless (can't control the clocks which is stupid), so no CPU crunching on it for now. Not bad for $100 shipped, the CPU was essentially $5. The board is quite nice too, but overclocking is locked which kind of sucks considering it could handle it.

    Hey Team,

    I setup a folding account for Kreij as TPU_remembers-Kreij

    @sneekypeet 's new rig has just started folding under this account. If anyone else is interested in using it please drop me a PM and I'll send you the passkey :)

    Any ideas on what a 290x will do ppd wise? I looked at a chart but all it had were 290s.

    Thanks to manofthem he is going to keep me updated on what a 290 will do. I sold one of my 7950s and am looking to upgrade.

    Quick question Team- do you need to fold using the passkey for 10 jobs to start qualifying for the bonus or do you just need to complete 10 jobs?

    3 jobs completed so far on the TPU_remembers-Kreij account and #4 should be done in about 2 hrs :)

    I think it was both. Someone will confirm this for me. By the way, pm me the passkey and I will get some ppd that way.

    Update My son wanted the 660 ti more than the 7950 so I traded him and got my 7950 back. Also got a new card on the way Im hoping will put out some pretty good ppd.

    It looks like my reference 290 at stock clocks (947/1275) averages 150k. I have only one 290 folding currently sp I could get a fair estimate on ppd. Not sure if it makes a difference but it's also in the rig with 7/8 threads crunching.

    To everyone, P10470-10473 are new Core_18 work units (in beta):
    I would advise getting AMD GPU's off of beta unless you want to report what you are seeing by joining the beta team. @james888 ,750 Ti's don't like these either. PG is aware of the poor AMD PPD.

    @manofthem you are showing that you are working on a 13000 (the Project 13000 in the middle) If you have trouble falling asleep: https://fah-web.stanford.edu/projects/FAHClient/wiki/FahControl

    Are you sure they don't like them or if it is my recent partial use of one of them. I have read I don't need to be on beta's to get these high points now.

    You know, I'm going to have to disagree with you on that. At least one is. Back on June 17, I even noticed that you got 8000 points for a WU. The only way to get 8000 points was when P9201 was first in beta and the bonus was not being given.
