    The Official Chimp Challenge 2012, May 15th-25th

    Maybe I'm a bit too lazy here in Finland: 17°C outside, 25°C in my room with my PC as the heater, max 61°C for my 2600K @ 4.2 GHz and 86°C for my GTX 470 @ 702 MHz core with stock fan settings. At least my folding has been 100% stable and my rig was still folding when I came home after five days...

    The Official Chimp Challenge 2012, May 15th-25th

    I'm trying to join the Chimp Challenge like last year with exactly the same rig (2600K @ 4.2 GHz and GTX 470 @ 701 MHz) and OC. I installed the V7 client and got: - p7642 for GPU, PPD 12417 - p8014 for SMP, PPD between 17k and 27k I've got a couple questions: - Is this the best I can get or...

    AMD Radeon HD 7990 Reference Board Pictured, Specs Confirmed in GPU-Z Screenshot

    Anyway, why not start adding those GHz Edition stickers to HD 7970 and make it a bit harder for GTX 680?

    2011 Chimp Challenge has started!!!

    All is going OK here, I completed my first ever -bigadv successfully and all WUs successfully completed for my GTX 470 @ 700 MHz core also at a stable 14K PPD. For some reason credit for my first -bigadv (project 2684) jumped up in the middle of folding it and that brought my 2600K @ 4.2 GHz SMP...

    2011 Chimp Challenge has started!!!

    Hi, I joined the team for Chimp Challenge and here is how my folding is going now: Is all OK, or is there something wrong? Is my SMP PPD low or OK? Looks like I'll only complete three of those WUs during these 10 days if all goes well. Should I add the -verbosity 9? I had to OC and...

    Best Nvidia Card for Folding

    Those 9800GTX's have just been renamed and are sold as GTS 250 nowadays. Actually GTS 250 and 9800GTX+ have the same fully working G92 GPU and the same clock speeds, and the GTX9800 has an older 65nm version of the same G92 GPU. So you can just get a GTS 250 instead of the old GTX9800 that is...

    One of the two GF8800GT's I'm folding with is a Leadtek PX8800 GT ZL that has a reference PCB without any cooling for MOSFET's :confused: The GPU stays at 70 degrees celsius under a Zalman cooler, but I don't know how hot the MOSFET's are. Before I installed a desk fan to improve cooling, that...

    The core 14 and 420 point WU gave me an amazing PPD, but now they're given my both GPU's a 1680 point WU :laugh: so they'll have something to do for a few hours. This is what my FahMon has to say after 20+ completed 420 pointers: Project : 5900 Core : Unknown Frames : 100 Credit : 420...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 200M and GTS 100M GPUs for Notebooks Announced

    If you try to buy an enthusiast gaming notebook with GeForce GTX 280, all you get is that 1.5 years old 65nm G92 in the picture finally with all shaders working in a notebook :-) Real value for money, isn't it? So GeForce GTX 280M is really a notebook version of GeForce 8800 GTS G92 or...

    AMD Launches ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830

    Yes, I think this new 40nm Mobile GPU is actually the RV740. The other GPU in the picture seems to be the RV770 used in HD4850 and HD4870, both mobile and desktop models. Thus I think that Mobility Radeon HD4850 and HD4870 have the RV770 with 800SP, 256bit memory and 55nm technology (the...

    I have two GeForce 8800 GT cards and GPU0 at 600/1651/900 is faster or at least as fast as GPU1 at 650/1625/900 every time they have similar WU's. So I can say that the core or memory clocks aren't important in folding and thus I'll try to overclock shaders only.

    I found out that the current WU won't restart after crash if you remove, rename or move the file current.xyz in the work directory of the client. That's how I managed to continue CPU WU's after electric power breakdown. In an unexpected shutdown, the file current.xyz gets corrupted, checksum...

    I've noticed that my Q6600 SMP client ppd varies quite a lot with different WU's: 1200-1400 ppd with 1920 point WU's 1800-2000 ppd with 1760 point WU's I get the higher readings when my GPU's have slow 511 pointers and lower readings when my GPU's have faster WU's. My Q6600 is still at 2.4 GHz...

    I sorted the cooling with an unused 20 cm board fan: Close up without cover paper: With cover paper installed: Now GPU0 at 80 degrees celsius with fan set at 50% with RivaTuner and GPU1 at 72 degrees celsius. The noise level also dropped a lot thanks to the big and powerful board fan. I...

    Isn't the GTX 280 designed to be a high end card that should be able to wihtstand even some tweaking and playing with water cooling or even LN2. Maybe I'm the one that should be worried about temperatures. Just noticed that my GF8800GT with stock cooler folds EUE-free at 95 degrees celsius...

    I started the SMP client today on my Q6600 @2.4 GHz, and it's giving me over 1800 PPD with WU Project: 2653 (Run 5, Clone 49, Gen 98) (1760 points). That enables me to get 10000 PPD again after good old v1.15 GPU core and project 501x WU times. I have 64bit Windows Vista and 2 GPU clients...

    Hello TPU folding team! Hi all! You may like to know who is that Birdman86 currently at 10th place in team stats. It's me and my mainstream gaming rig with Q6600 and 2x GF8800GT. So I have only one pc currently running 2 GPU and 3 CPU systray clients. I haven't tried SMP client or...
