Thanks!! I usually get around 58000 with -bigadv WU, maybe 45000 with normal smp WU. But my 9800GX2 is often too hot to fold on both GPU. I think it might be related to the fact that there is three card with 5 gpu folding so clos together... How could i sell it to someone here?

I fold for the alliance francopĥone (team 51) since may be 3-4 months, before i wasn't folding for any particular team. When i realised that some french people (and i hope french canadian!) did fold, i joined in. Maybe i'll switch to TPU soon, i think there is some sort of competition around, or maybe not?

50711 ;)

Please join us, we'd love it! We're always looking for more PPD for our question for the top spot :toast:

If you're going to be selling cards, it might make sense to sell the GTX260 & 9800GX2. That's about 350w of cards right there, a GTS450 is ~14k PPD w/ a moderate OC and pulls down only 105w each ;)

All 5 gpus and my 920 are now folding for team 50711. Cannot see where the team is ranked, but will try again when the update is finished.
You are amazing! :toast: :respect: :rockout:

You'll easily have top-10 PPD with a setup like that, way to go!!!

Hey you're right! I knew my rig was something in my area, but I didn't knew it was this good. Or maybe it,s me that keep thinking that everyone has gtx 480s and i7 980x....

My whole rig ,except hard drive and optical drive, costed me 1300$, so when i see people having systems costing 3000$, i always tell myself that my system is good, but not in the same league...

I only do about 20k PPD (GTS450 + GTX260) so your folding power is way better than mine anyways :p

I could in theory get ~45k PPD from my setup (GPUs + bigadv), but I run my CPUs for WCG, another DC project. Just a personal preference.

I've heard from WCG, but did not push my research too far.... I'm working everyday with breast cancer, so when i saw folding@home project, i jumped into it. If i can contribute to improve the way we're killing these little bastards cells, i'll do it till the bill's too high and/or the cards die!

By the way i'm thinking of replacing mt 9800gx2 with one or two gts 450. How are they when it comes to folding?-

I'm not sure if you can get your folding badge yet but you can try... go to user cp and edit options then type in your folding name in the blank then save changes! Worth a try!

Well that's cool :)

What's your FAH username? And I take it you already know about passkeys and everything? As long as your username stays the same from your previous team, you won't have to qualify a new passkey, if it changes you'll have to get a new one w/ your new name and re-qualify it

Did what you told gary, and still no badge.

To Ion, 111frodon is my name and it or my passkey didn't changed till i started folding. And yes i know a thing or two about folding. Setting up 5 gpus was not exactly a walk in the park. Had to figure the order i should place the cards in the motherboard was important. Thanks for asking.

You'll need 100k points here first ;)

I figured you knew about that, just checking :laugh:

I've set up systems w/ 3 GPUs, I can imagine 5 would be really hard :eek:

Welcome aboard, I hope you like it here!

Well about 2 days and i'll get my badge then! There's alot i don't know yet!;)

in fact it was not this hard to set up. The first time i plugged my gtx 275co-cop, then my gtx 260 and finally my 9800gx2. Could not get more than 4 gpus running at the same time. As it's not a good idea to sandwich a 9800gx2 between two other cards, unless you're under water, i exchanged the 275 and gx2 position (9800-260-275) and voilà! Reboot, reinstall drivers, copy a fifth gpu folder on my ramdisk and start it. Took me 2 months to think to change the position, and 5 minutes to do the rest!

Thanks blue bumble bee, but i usually push my shader's cards the limit software voltage tweaks will let me, and stock folding number are always confusing and hard to compare. Just wanted to know what kind of ppd a gts 450 overclocked to the limit can do.

Ion: At what clock are you folding?

2 mill/day is in our reach for sure and with a 55K addition from our new member 111frodon aka Feanor plus all the new 460/450 i have seen people are adding these days it is only a matter of weeks. I will dump a 88K WU later today :)
