I will join you and dump a 72K WU before 11pm tonite!
930 core (1860 shader), mem I think is at 925 or something
I think weeks might be overly ambitious, but I'm sure we'll make it before too long
So one of your i7s did in fact fetch a bigadv?
55k addition? WTF, when was that said? I missed it
Yes, it just got harder to stay in the pie
But he's not crunching with us though?
Hi. No i'm not crunching, and yes i'm roughly at 50000-55000 ppd, depending if i'm gaming and if nothing goes wrong. Damn those -bigadv units are long to finish. No place for errors!
I have the chance to pay around 5 cents/kWh, so anything i can get my hand on is folding, even the rigs i've put together for friends (I'm asking a year of folding time in payment of my services!)
That's a very good deal!
CP, he is folding with us, he said he was switching over this afternoon
@ Feanor welcome to the best folding@home Team Bro....
I typically ask for crunching in return for help, but a lot of people end up removing BOINC anyways
If it's a close friend's PC, you can always monitor and remind them...
And i don't think my coworker ever realized that she was surfing (with a 4,00 ghz e5200) with the smp client minimize...
I do remind people, but I don't like to bug relatives or friends, then they get irritated
The fact that they are amazed at their computer's performance help a bit when it actually comes to reminding : Just let it run!
The next step is to upgrade the 9800gx2 and the gtx 260 with something more powerful. I think it's time for fermi... Can't wait to sell those.
True...but a lot of people are suspicious of 100% CPU usage
Something to keep in mind is that Fermi cards do use more of the CPU
And while my GTS450 gets 14k PPD on the 9XX PT WUs, it gets a tad under 8k (even OCed) on the 611s.
The GTX460 gets about 15k on the 9XXs (OCed) and about 10k on the 611s, so it may be a better option for you
How much more cpu does it use? My FahCore_11 process never exceed 3%, averaging 2-2,5%. Does the gpu3 .exe consumes a lot more?
And the card that will fold in the future depends entirely on the sale price of the old ones!
...Then welcome aboard Feanor, thanks for switching over.
It is nothing, Chicken patty. Your team is quite a bit more alive than the old one. Choose it because i was giving 50000ppd to the default team. I choose this team because tpu is one of my favorite tech sitetoast and i pretty much always ended here when i was setting up my clients...
It's great to have you
I don't remember how much of my i7 the GTS450 uses, but I know that GPU3 causes far more of a hit to SMP/bigadv PPD than GPU2 does
Since I'm trying to do -bigadv on my second sig rig I don´t run Fermi on that one but on my other rig GPU3 takes around 10 % vs less then 1% on GPU2 (one card in both cases).
And welcome to the team.
GPU client is not grabbing any new work! Its been over 20 minutes..Anyone else with ATI gpu console having this issue?
Tried restarting the client? Those shortage of WU's happen from time to time.
I sure did try and no love!
I can try when I get home, if you still have no luck then. It'll be about two hours from now.
Okay kewl and thnx...I am at work to and remoted into my rig at home..keeping an eye to the sky and to my rig...lol
Cool ill keep you posted bro hope you can get one soon!
