    Those were the good ol' days :)

    The Bad:
    Tonight's dump will be a little late and for only 305K, as I had to play around with the system and it cost valuable folding time. Should be included in the 9PM update.

    The Good:
    I now have a 13% O/C that has me netting 11:38 TPF for 437K PPD :rockout:. P8101 WU's are worth 353,000 points and take me 19.44 hrs to complete. So theoretically every 4th day, I should dump 2 WU's. I cant wait for the P8102's to come around again.

    Only 305k :rolleyes:
    Do say that again, and rub it in our faces :roll:

    437k PPD :rockout: :eek:

    The days when you dump two of your 350k WUs and Bogmali dumps one of his ~280k ones will be few and far-between...but incredible. Should be close to 1.3 million then :rockout:

    Come up with $3k and we will get you set up with a 4P rig also. I will walk you through every step of the way!:laugh::pimp:

    Below is the guy from OCN who's build I have been following. He has helped me quite a bit with the pitfalls of this rig.

    Notice any patterns?

    Sorry, but I just don't think that I can reasonably dump another 800w+ into this room without temperatures becoming absurd. That and until I have a consistent job I can't just spend $3k on a FAH rig. Although, 400k+ PPD for $3k is a pretty good deal

    I cannot imagine that they will release any WUs soon that a 48c setup can't run :)

    By that time we'll probably have mainstream 10/12/16 core CPUs and you can build an even better rig. :p

    Great(sarcasm)! Should I start saving up now:cry:? I gotta admit that I'm having a lot of fun with this rig. Although there are times I want to pull my hair out with Ubuntu, it's been a great learning experience and quite the adventure.

    Dumping another P8101 @ 4PM today for 350K. Hopefully by Thursday, I will have a double dump of 700K.

    This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. While the GPU farm you had looked more impressive, this is still awesome. 400k+ PPD from one rig... :respect:

    Yes, while the GPU carts that I used had more "presence", you cannot deny this rig's huge performance. I'm not even considering the electrical cost savings yet. I figure I would save $100.00/month on my electric bill vs CPU/GPU's producing 1/2 the PPD, so this rig should pay for itself in 30 months+/-. If all goes well the remainder of the year, I may throw another 4P together in the winter. I'll just have to camp on ebay to snatch up some deals on chips:rockout:.

    ~

    Another one?? :toast:
    If so...that's 900k PPD! Or you alone will be doing ~50% more than the entire team was doing by itself! :eek: :D

    $100 is a month is really a very sizable chunk...I assume that the X48 setup is using ~1/4 of the power of the GPU setup?

    Regardless of my contributions, the team will come back strong, albeit seasonal due to the heat at times.

    At my height of -bigadv/GPU folding, I figure the farm was pulling 2000watts+/- and was producing approx 175K PPD. I will connect the kill-a-watt tonight to get actual wattage, but I expect 800W.

    Some of these WU(P8101) are slightly different. I am pulling 450K ppd on this current one with a completion time of 18.96 hrs. Should dump 357K points @ 11:30am EST Tuesday.

    Overclock fail! I lost a WU @ 20%, so reverting back to the original O/C. Between the power outage and the failed WU, it cost us 200K points:banghead:. I will leave the rig to fold now and quit with my experiments.

    P.S. The rig draws 880w at the wall and the PCP&C Silencer 750's are old tech 80+, so I figure their best efficiency is 83% at this load. With that said, the rig should be consuming 730W. Remember that i have 2x PSU's on this rig as well.

    Damn :(
    These mistakes cost us the equivalent of a week and a half folding on my GPUs :eek:

    Are we still going to get a WU from this today?

    880w from the wall isn't too bad. A considerable improvement over the GPUs, for sure :toast:

    I know, I feel bad enough already:cry:. I just uploaded 349K and will have another 350K uploaded by 1:30PM EST tomorrow. Saturday will be the 1st day of the "Double Dump":rockout: if all goes well.

    The folding cart is back in business. There should be room for another 4P rig in there somewhere.:rockout:

    It's beautiful! :rockout:

    I'd say you could put those dual PSUs on the bottom level and then put the 2nd 4P rig right above the first one ;)

    Parts are on their way for the 2nd 4P build. Using all the same part/pieces except the CPU's are Opteron 6176 SE's. I will try for a 20%+ O/C on these chips and will need additional cooling for the VRMs. Will also try to increase the voltage on these chips as well. Aiming for 2.7-2.8Ghz and 1600mhz on the Ram as well. I may eventually upgrade to 1Kw PSU's that are modular for a cleaner appearance.:rockout:
