takes a few days if not a week or so. i saw no results for the first week.
Damn it! I was really hoping that the additional rig could help with the push for the sub forum!
If you go to "my grid" and click on 'result status' I think, you can see all the WU's you've dl'd, which are in progress, which are returned, which are validated, etc.
Well both rigs are on and running 24/7, I don't pay a power bill in the apt (utils covered). I'll let it run for a little while longer and I'll see how it goes. I raised to 100% load, running just a tad cooler than F@H SMP (1-2C).
K, I'll keep patient and an eye on things. Hopefully we're good to go.
I just added my back-up rig to crunch. So essentially all my rigs' CPU crunch and the GPU's fold for TPU
oddly I found the i7 rig is running cooler on turbo...before for some unknown reason the BIOS was set so it ran at a 13X multi all the time. Now it's at 21X. However the times seem longer now for each WU..not sure why.
Yeah, I know, but the Q6600 results are not shown.
It took a little over 24 hours for me to see any results from the added E8500 earlier this week. Give it another day or so.
As long as you have dl'ed work units, it has to show up. Anything dl'ed and not returned/validated will show up as "in progress". That doesn't sound right.
Actually, I can see it now. However, it still does not show up under "device stats".
Just over 24 hours ago I added a Q6600 and if I go to My Grid | Result Status and filter for Valid results I see that I have 8 complete. Now if I filter for In Progress I have an additional 16. If I filter for In Progress on my other devices I notice that there over 50 waiting to be validated. Just keep crunching and let there server validate.
Yeah, that's because stuff only makes it to device stats once it has been validated.

TechPowerUp! 1,137,333 Great work folks!
i7 rig is up and running now...well enough to allow me to crunch. So I should be on more or less 24/7 now. I hope.
Just one more day guys. The final push to the WCG forum!! Awesome guys!!
i had my i7 out for about 3 hours here.
damn weather has been terrible. im not risking a $$$$ machine...
its up and running again now though.
i think i see myself getting some
Damn. I keep getting pushed further down the list. All I'm getting is ass-pie. Pretty soon there won't be any pie at all.
tornado just rolled through town with another one right behind it.
the first was only 6 blocks away from me.
im down for a few hours guys.
You're correct on the 123bob_TPU account. I have one kentsfield quad running at about 3.4 gig. This machine has been crunching for almost two years straight.
On the 123bob farm, I have a total of 14 quads consisting of some kents and some nice penryns. All overclocked. I have no i7 or gainestowns on the farm yet.
SIDE TOPIC: You can't count on the WCG page, of a given member, to see how many machines are active. I have redone a lot of machines with new op systems, new BOINC versions, etc. When this happens, WCG thinks it's a new machine and counts it as such.
The only way to know for sure depends on the person in question allowing their hosts to be shown. For example, I have chosen to show my host on the 123bob_TPU account. Look at my personal 123bob_TPU page at Free-DC, here. Look under hosts. That shows my quad. On my 123bob page, I have chosen not to show hosts on my profile for that account at WCG. Therefore, the host section is blank on my 123bob personal page.
So, the place to show hosts, or not, is on your profile at WCG. :END SIDE TOPIC
It used to be the best points for dollar was Q6600 based machines. I think the i7 920 has changed that formula a bit.
One thing to think about when you are doing dedicated crunchers is to consider farm management. It is easier to deal with a pile of similar hardware. This way you can swap amoung machines to troubleshoot, or do your upgrades in a wholesale manner.
I considering my next slew of hardware now. I'm actually considering on waiting for 6 core 32nm machines. I'm not sure yet. I might do a dual gansy just because, and to cure the itch while I wait....
uploaded 2 results from my virus free E2220
A question for those that use their GPU's for Folding@home on a WCG machine.
I added a HD4870 to my new WCG machine to help out our Folding Team, but it is only getting about 70% PPD compared to my other HD4870 on the same work units. (same clocks on cards)
I have WCG set to use 100% of CPU and it seems to be hurting the performance of the card, it probably affects the WCG performance as well on the core that the card uses.
Will I need to set the priority slightly higher for the card or drop the WCG to use say 90% of CPU...or just take the hit in performance.I know we used to set the cores affinity with the Folding@home clients but it seemed to have been fixed with later drivers etc.
Anyone who Folds & Crunches with the same machine care to chime in ??
I run f@h with wcg on all my rigs, but no ati cards. I see no drop in performance, but different drivers can make a difference. Also, seems to work better with 64 bit os, and vista slightly better than xp. I know that the ati drivers have had more cpu usage than the nvidia, but I think that it's better with the newer drivers. Maybe some guys running ati cards can help more.
