    Same with folding, I check the stats more often then they update. They're all too slow.

    Does this have a GPU client or should I keep my 4870 folding?

    If you are asking if WCG has GPU folding, at the moment, not officially. But there are some beta testing software for CUBA based Nvidia GPU WCGing. You should look at the WCG website for more info. I haven't really looked at it.

    That is a recipe many at XS do. It works well. Crunching GPUGrid along with WCG, both on BOINC, also works but you have to watch what version you run on. It's a little trickier.

    A thought for this team is to "cross-pollinate" with your folding team. Fold for them with your GPUs, and ask them to crunch WCG for your team.... A quick and easy way to boost both teams.

    Regards,
    Bob

    Not true. I have a q6600 @ 3.2, phenom 9600BE @ stock (crappy mobo), and a half dozen old single core Athlon 64 and Athlon XP boxes :roll:

    Good thing I don't pay the electric bill, those old single cores aren't very efficient :eek:

    But all ya need (right now) is three quads to get you in on the pie :D

    I have at least $60 per month worth. Yeah, when I'm paying the bill after I graduate next month, all these single cores are shutting down forever :rolleyes: :(

    May try and sell off some parts from them if any are worth anything. Got a cherry 2500+ barton (3200+ in disguise) that may be worth something for example.

    I'm thinking soon, my teammates. Looks like you both have caught "cruncheritis". (I'm thinking Dark is already a lost case. Checking stats every 20 minutes when you know it updates every few hours is the key.... A really bad case there. :eek: But Dark folds too. I understand that Dark was pre-disposed to this condition....;))

    We normally have Dr SiG, from our team, provide therapy for this dreaded disease, but he has not made his way over here. I have been under his care for several years now. Look where it got me....:eek:

    I already know CP has it. CP had it when I got here.... The kicker was asking about BOINC benches. One key for high point production is your benches. Your scores are based on it. The other side of it is to have a stable system. High benches that crash on WUs mean very little.

    So, some paramedic type stuff may be in order. The best advice I can give for pie-envy is "take two quads and call us in the morning".....:laugh::toast::rockout:

    (@ Dark, those temps are a concern, to me at least. Suggest getting them down into the 70s at least..... You've got to run that rig 24/7/365....I'm guessing your RAM will die if your CPU temps are that high? RAM usually dies on me first. Is your case airflow good? Knock on wood, I have never lost a CPU yet, since Intel parts have Mr. THERMTRIP# to protect them, but I have lost lots of RAM.)


    I'm thinking 3 decent quads would work. Certainly when we clear out and go home after cleaning up the tent city, Lots of pie will be available.

    For the rest of you, Sparky has the most amazing "cardboard apartment complex" I have ever seen. He has won the annual XS "Frankenstein" contest at XS two years running with it. Those single core machines all run in the most amazing setup I know of. [​IMG]

    Hehe.....Power is very cheap out here, and I pay the bills. The farm costs over $170 per month to run, just for electric. That's one cost of the addiction.

    Figure the hardware cost, but don't forget the "run-rate" for your electric. If it's your parents paying the bills, you had better be ready to explain this.....

    (BTW, Apparently qouting more than two posts here at TPU is an advanced technique. Took me a while to get it....:slobber: (An XS emoticon....:laugh:))

    Bob

    No, don't ask me which wire goes where :shadedshu

    Unfortunately, the big box got gutted. The cardboard was wearing out and wasn't holding up too well anymore. It got retired :( I have 3 real metal cases now but the rest are still in cardboard.
