    Took the 1090t cruncher down for some fine tuning; running now at 3.94Ghz @ 50C.

    What's the safe temperature range for Thubans?

    hmmm... maybe I could get it to >4Ghz then... I'll be back :D

    edit:looks like 4Ghz is the hard limit for this CPU/board. Running 235 * 17 (3.99Ghz) @ 51C for now. Got my 1055t to 3.2Ghz too.

    My 3770k is running silently and stably--for ~110w (Jstn7477, can you confirm that this is what a 4GHz IVB CPU w/ no GPUs and a plain 80+ PSU should use?) it does ~5.5k PPD. Love it :D

    Both my 3770K rigs have GPUs in them, but OpenHardwareMonitor reports 63-67w total for the CPU at 4.3GHz/1.2v, so that wattage sounds pretty close, maybe even a little less. I bet it is quite amazing compared to the AMD 4x4 you have. :)

    Any idea why my FX-8320 running at 4+ GHz is routinely outperformed by my FX-8120 running at 3.5 GHz? (when it comes to PPD, that is)


    Bummer, man! :(

    Maybe the it's like the story of the turtle and the hare?

    I have the same thing with my son's PC. His six core 1090T can finish a WU faster than my 8350...

    Maybe Visheras underperform?

    Well After two or more days of 100% load, the 785G has not blown and the temps (If HWmonitor are right) show they hover in the 40's. Its only a small jab at points bringing in under 4K a day but it still will put numbers out for the team. Has anyone mentioned when GPU WU' would be back in action?

    My 8350 is pulling around 6k ppd, which is about 20-30% more ppd than my 8150 so I don't have any issues with Vishera but YMMV

    Keep a watch for invalids/errors or excessive pending validation/verifications in your WCG account- those will affect your ppd ;)

    To answer my own question:
    Some time ago I noticed the FX-8120 rig doesn't pull WUs for some of the projects no matter what I try.
    I did some calculations and realized most of those projects it doesn't pull produce much less points for the same CPU time than the others.
    Thus, the FX-8120 mostly does jobs that yield ~1.5 times more points for the same CPU time.

    For that reason, for the duration of the current challenge, I am going to do only those jobs that yield the most points.

    EDIT: No invalid or erroneous results whatsoever.

    Just noticed my QX6700 Cruncher stopped working. Was wondering why I've only been getting 1 star on my badge. Good news is that I just got a 3570k sitting on my test bench so hopefully I can get that crunching. Sucks that we stopped getting GPU work units, yes I haven't been on the forums in a while, the fact that I bought a 7850 for crunching doesn't help either...

    I suggest that everyone who is not using their AMD 7xxx GPUs and wants to do something with them should fold for our F@H team with the beta 7663 WUs. Tahiti-based 7950/7970 GPUs are currently getting 80-100K PPD each with the bonus points. Buck Nasty might move one of his 48 core setups over to our WCG team if we can show him that we can make up for the 600K PPD deficit that would occur if he took one of his machines off of F@H. Ask questions in the F@H subforum if you need any help. :)

    I brought in 2x 7770's in addition to the 2x GTX 580's and may bring over a 7870 tomorrow but that's all I can bring now.

    Buck's 4P would really help out a lot if he would bring it over for a few days :toast:

    FYI- the 7770's are good for 10-11k ppd each and don't run too hot on the F@H 7663 beta's

    YAAAY, some thing to do with my GPU's. F@H supports older GPUs too =D Can finally use the 9800gx2 I fixed that's been sitting in my closet :p

    So is it possible to run BOINC on my CPU and run Folding@home on my two GPU's at the same time/same rig?

    You may want to leave at least 1 unused CPU core/thread for F@H. If your CPU usage is still 100% even with 1 core/thread unused by WCG, then you may need to free additional threads. The point is to not have WCG starve your GPUs, as sometimes they need a core each for support. NVIDIA FERMI/KEPLER GPUS NEED 1 THREAD PER INSTALLED GPU FOR BETAS.

    The quick and dirty setup guide for F@H v7:
    1) Go to folding.stanford.edu and get F@H v7 7.3.6 and install it.
    2) Create a passkey here: http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py
    3) Reboot your computer as necessary after installing the F@H client.
    4) A webpage will probably open up for F@H asking you to contribute anonymously or configure identity. Configure your identity by using your username, team 50711 and the passkey you signed up for. Save the settings and close the window.
    5) Right-click on the little F@H icon in your tray and click Advanced Control. Click the Configure button at the top, go to the slots tab, and nuke the CPU/SMP slot, leaving your GPUs.
    6) Edit EACH GPU SLOT, scroll down to the bottom, "Add" an extra slot option with name client-type and value beta. Save the settings.
    7) If your GPU hasn't started working on a WU already, it should start downloading a "7663" work unit and be running FAHcore 0x17 on the right pane of the window. Be sure to move the top slider to "Full" for best output.

    Feel free to ask questions in the F@H subforum in the F@H Tech Assistance thread. If you choose to support us, thank you. Be sure to go into your profile and put your username in for the F@H badge (yes, we have one too). 30K PPD gets you a "Crazy Folder" badge. :)

    asdj├▒lkaflkmalsm... I was reinstalling W7 on the 1055t and I begin to hear clicking sounds :(

    This Deskstar has finally bitten the dust. Had a 6 year run. Thankfully I have a cheap Jmicron SSD I can use.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Very good ideal as the F@H team has come to our aid many times.:toast::respect::respect: When I get back from Vacation I am going to setup my 7850's to fold. Also are the 6850's worth setting up?

    You're welcome to try, but I think they will only get you a few thousand PPD tops on the betas. The 7950/7970 get about 8-10x more PPD than a 7770 because of how fast they are at completing WUs, so they get a big bonus.

    It's important to remember that these are beta WUs and there may be shortages. For instance, my 7970 is currently doesn't have a beta WU to work on right now yet my 7950 machines do.

    My 7850 gets 55K PPD on beta, so he should be ok.
