    Windows 7 updates

    Cool, thanks. I thought they had already stopped it for most users. At least that gives me several months to get some old benching rigs set up :)

    Windows 7 updates

    I will be installing Windows 7 on a few PCs over the next couple of weeks, for GPU benching. Is there a way to trick it into getting updates, or does anyone know of a resource to download essential updates beyond SP1?

    Good news. The seller has refunded me for the RX 570, and is returning the GTX 1060.

    Damn! I went to reinstall the GTX 1060, and found the RX 570 that I thought I had returned. I get confused, because of health stuff, and it seems I packed and posted the wrong card! I really hope the seller is honest enough to return my card and refund for theirs, as I am getting no reply to my...

    Transferring boot drive to new PC

    Thanks. My working OS is Windows 10. I will also use a second SSD to run Win 7 for benchmarking, but that is not such a bind to install from scratch as a lot less apps :)

    Transferring boot drive to new PC

    The motherboard on my socket FM1 system is failing. So far, I can't run PCI-e x16 graphics cards, and the network has failed. I am considering upgrading to gen 3 Ryzen, which I understand is due soon. I want to transfer my drives and keep all my apps. Is that possible? I know I will need to...

    When I installed the RX 570 and drivers, the drivers couldn't see the card. It would only use the M$ drivers, so no GPU compute and no second monitor. I informed the eBay seller, and they offered a refund. I put the GT 730 back in the system and reinstalled the drivers then couldn't get online...

    The PC was folding on 6 threads on an i7 6700K. The only other task running on that machine (other than the usual suspects, such as anti-virus) is Bit Torrent software. Thanks for the link. Got the 980 Ti in the mail to its final destination, and the 1060 folding. The current wu is saying...

    The 980 Ti I have been testing would not fit in my top two slots without digging out the right hex key to remove the back of the case, which I wasn't desperate to do for just a day or two of testing. This is because of the push switch to change BIOS settings, at the top end of the rear bracket...

    Yes, I have plenty of power connectors. 1000W PSU and only one card in the machine, which is being replaced anyway :)

    Woohoo! My ppd is going to shoot up for a couple of days. Just received a GTX 980 Ti that needs forwarding to Russia, and have been given the OK to fully test it before I go to the Post Office with it on Saturday :)

    Just bought a GTX 1060 to add to my farm, so my ppd should at least triple by next week. Hope to soon buy a high end NVidia card and an enthusiast level CPU and board to replace the Llano based system I use daily, as it is too slow to fold on and really slow when recoding video files :)

    LOL, I wish life was that simple :) I am a citizen of the world, I think Brexit is the biggest mistake this country ever made. I hope I am proved wrong :)

    I'm going to have to stop folding until after Brexit. The electricity bill is interfering with my ability to stock up with food before the shops run out and inflation sky rockets. Glad I have a garden to grow veg in! Will stop on Sunday, after I reach 2 million point with the team.

    Can Tesla K10 be flashed with a GTX 690 BIOS?

    I will have a Tesla K10 later this month. In terms of compute power (I want to fold on it) it is identical to a GTX 690, but approx 20% slower. As it only cost $50, I consider it a reasonable deal. Can it be flashed with a GTX 690 BIOS? It has no graphics outputs, as it is a compute card, but if...

    I passed a million points overnight, and finally at 100K ppd. I'll be in our team's top 100 this month (that's not a difficult task though)

    I've passed 500K now, should hit a million by the weekend now my main folder is earning roughly 100K ppd. Stats should show that soon :)

    Damn! My everyday PC (Llano A8-6800K with GT 730) was grinding to a halt with almost 40 browser windows across two browsers, and only 8 GB RAM. It's also been taking longer and longer (like 5 minutes) getting from the POST screen to starting to load Windows. I bought 32 GB RAM to upgrade it this...

    It's got to be better than the GTX 580, GT 730 and i7 6800K combined :)

    Tesla K10 is a Kepler card, equivalent to a GTX 690. Fermi, which is older, is still supported (I fold on a GTX 580). For sure I will post once it arrives and I know my approximate ppd.

    TPU's F@H Team

    Now the stats are sorted I'm back here. Don't want to fold for Bit-Tech any more due to issues with their admin :)

    TPU's F@H Team

    K10 is Kepler and I am still folding on an older Fermi card, so it sgould be fine.

    Just switched to the TPU team. Only getting a humble 100K ppd approx from a GT 730, GTX 580 and i7 6800K, but will be adding a Tesla K10 to the fold next month (when it arrives). Hope to get a GTX 2080 (or Ti if it's a good year) this summer.

    I have enough FDD/CDROM/CDRW and DVDRW for several retro builds. Not in the closet though, I have crates full of parts mostly waiting for me to get a shed (so I will have room to set everything up)
