I've got a 1060 6G that "throttles down" periodically, dropping to ~20% reported usage for an arbitrary amount of time before flipping back to full steam. This doesn't seem to happen on any of my other cards (1070 ti, 3050, RX 470). Any ideas?

Something like this @80-watt Hamster ??

Mines never at a constant GPU usage, its all over the place as you can see... If it stays there that might be something else but otherwise I'd presume/guess its normal??

No, more like this:

Under normal circumstances, card power will be around 100 watts, with ePPD around 600K. Under these circumstances, ePPD hover around 10K. Here's what HWINFO64 has to say:

Maybe it's just due to the CUDA config on GP106 and everything's fine. Just seemed weird that output was tanking so bad.

Any detailed instructions for the client? I just want to throw a wu into the bucket from time to time on my x99 server. Seems my 36 thread cpu does not bad, and I'm throwing a rx570 into
the mix as well. Been years since I folded. Ended up using the web client to just run both at full, but I liked having a bit more control....

Never mind.. figured it out....

You guys realize there is no Easy setup thread left... no instructions for beginners. I almost gave up myself.. but I did this before... years ago. Even the folding at home website changed.
Should be some updates....

If I have to resetup a PC, I'll try and get a guide together... I thought that was already covered to be honest??

Folding Setup Thread.... but that looks like the pics have disappeared which is kinda unhelpful! :rolleyes:

Anyone know why after one reboot the F@H application just takes a dump on itself and I have to reinstall it over and over? Last time it happened data corrupted.

I fought with that, too. I made a text file on the desktop that the name of the file is my passkey. Click twice to rename, but copy paste....

Then, start8ng the prog from Fahclient maybe cleared it up. How are you starting it now?

Autostarts but sometimes it'll not do so correctly and locks up, won't open, but still do only CPU tasks. If I manual start it'll bugger up every single time.

@Toothless that 7900xtx is not doing great unless you don't fold 24/7.

6950XT on and off. Can't overload the breaker.
We all need more breakers in our lives....

I've never had any issues with getting it to run with the 'expert' model because I don't want each of the machine booting up and downloading work, even more so now winter is about because of the lack of solar here and cost :( Of course when the electric is 'free' and solar is running I don't mind running everything but that's not going to happen much over here sadly with winter months..... :(

Could a reinstall help with it @Toothless ??
