I get 8970ppd with shaders @ 1450 on a 353pt WU.
Same here. But I have mine set at 602/1548/999 using Evga precision.
655/1450/1050 with fans @ 80%
Fans at 80%? What is the temp down in Florida? It's -6F where i'm at. Most of the day I feel like a newborn that hasn't droped his nuts.
it's 5:40 am right now and I am funneling 66f air through the house to cool the farm. Card temps are @ 70c right now. I'm gonna see 60f weather tonight(woot)
i hit 53k in F@H working toward 60k work has dried up so my folding will drop off a bit (i fold when working only) but ill keep chugging along I cant compete with the likes of Buck but damn it ill keep on plodding along slowly but surely. already at rank 171 in the TPU F@H team standings ill hit 60k soon then take a break when january rolls around ill start up again and try for 75k
so i guess ill keep on rolling
Currently - Stalled. Came up with a load of error starting F@H core & I dont have to time to fix it at the moment. so until them im out of the race
I'm back in the game after a long leave... I put the 9600 GT back in this rig just for F@H!
Awaiting a 4650 so that I can begin the long process of selling old and buying new hardware...
Would you be willing to consider switching your CPUs over to WCG? The PPD for them in F@H is quite low, but in WCG you'll be able to get ~7500 PPD (WCG) off of your E5200, ~5000 off of the E6400. All of the links you need to get started with WCG are in the Essentials thread in my signature
I'm not able to do anything on the E6400 unfortunately, the family uses that computer and its slow enough as is...
I'll consider "crunching" with the E5200, but I do plan on setting up an SMP client on this to see how many PPD I can get from that.
I run WCG in the background on an E6550 that my parents use, my mom didn't even notice it for 2 months and then I told her that I had installed it
So I wouldn't say it's much of an interference
just set it to use 50% of the cpu and they wont ever notice
Ok, once those WUs are done on my CPU, I'll set up crunching on it, and hijack the family computer for it as well.
Any point in running it on my third rig? See sig for details.
Oh and by xmas I'll have a laptop with a T4300, 2.1 GHz, which I could use as well. Should I run it on that?
that laptop with w t4300 can probably contribute a few points that PIII 850mhz wow probably not worth the power it uses to make those few pts XD
I've tried running my laptop with F@H before, it managed a ~400 point WU in about 6 days running 24/7; I had to disassemble it and fit a custom heatsink to it to keep it running!
The Dell Pentium 4 2.8GHz Northwood is what I'm interested in; its silent, doesn't use much power... any use in crunching on that?
no idea i know it should do alot better then the P3 but sadly i know a p3 is faster clock for clock compared to a p4 if only your P3 was a 2.8ghz P3 that would handle things alright XD
My ppd will be down for a day or 2. My 4870X2 will be offline, and possibly the 4850 as well.
I have a system with a P4 Northwood @ 2.8ghz, and it can get ~250 (BOINC, equal to ~1700 on the WCG website) points if running all of the time, however, unfortunately, it doesn't. The laptop should do ~550 BOINC points, ~4000 on the WCG website). So yes, I would say crunch on both of those, I crunch on my 2.4ghz C2D P8600 laptop 24/7.
Thanks to help from Buck and Bog - the glimmer twins - I just added a 9600 GSO to my "garden"*. Currently adding 2200 PPD on a 787. Should give me @ 10K PPD total.
I have another 750i motherboard, CPU, memory, and a power supply. Hopefully I'll have the funds to get another GTS 250 and another 9600. So I'll have one PC with dual 250's and one with dual 9600's. That should get me in the top 20 at least for a day or two.
*Thanks to P_O_S_PC for that definition.
What 9600GSO do you have? Let's get that baby maximized!
I've got an EVGA 9600 GSO. I've trolled through these threads and found recommendations. I can't figure out how to get EVGA precision to see both cards, but I can use GPUTool since it has a drop down box.
When I tried to set it to 700/1800/800, it threw artifacts immediately. I set it down to 650/1700/650 and it's stable. I don't dare go higher because I can't control the fan with GPUTool. Currently the fan is at 55% and temps are 67-68C.
Do you have the affinity set to idle or low? You should be getting more PPD than 2K+ on a 787pt WU. My 9600GSO's get 4K on the same WU.
I think I have it set to low, or whatever the default is. My performance suffers because I did a dumb thing and bought the 48 shader card.
I decided to quit fooling around. I'm giving myself a Christmas present of a second GTS 250, and will put the 9600 on the shelf until I set up my 4th PC.
default is IDLE btw i would leave it fold till you get the other GTS250 alittle is better then nothing.
Don't worry. It's staying right where it is until I get the 250. Hopefully by then I will have forgiven myself enough to have removed my foot from my posterior so I can install the card.
