Give a pm to one of your crunching friends that are folding. I had heck of a time shutting down WCG.
click slots tab
click add slot
click ok and ok
and away you should go
Folding on my CPU is going to take 11 hrs 43mim.....sure dont get much for it.
Bow it'll depend on what WU's you get but I can tell you now you wont get bigadv wu's as you've only got a hexacore cpu and at 11h43m that's 2.75 times as fast as I was getting on my PII x4 so it's doing well you'll do 2 SMP WU's a day
hey guys just got back from vacation and am installing clients now
do I need a passkey?
yes, sending PM now. Thanks for helping us!!!
Quick question, I'm setup using the Folding@Home Client Control and did get setup for ChimPowerUp but not sure if I should be using the -bigadv for the cpu.
Can I set these under the Config -> smp slot-> edit-> Add Extra slot options
Put in those two boxes:
Name = client-type
Value = bigadv
So my x6 wont run bigadv?
Give it a shot, it's not guaranteed but I've known someone that did receive a -bigadv WU using an AMD Hex Core. I have a 1090T but it's folding regular SMP because it's also feeding a GTX580.
Bow, don't try it. You're Folding on those video cards and they take too much CPU. Just stay with SMP.
No it wont you can add the bigadv switch but you wont get one as the new version now queries the hardware directly to find out what you've got, so it knows from the beginning you only have six cores even using the -SMP 8 switch wont get you an A4 WU but on the bright side you'll rip through the normal SMP WU's at 2 a day + your GPU's
i have a 460 hawk folding actually 10.737,1 ppd but when i oc after 4 or 5 hours goes quietly into safe mode half speed my question is what is diference compared to a game becose in a game i dont have that issue, the speed original is 780/1560/900 i set to 840/1680/1000 +20mv i am from argentina sory for the spelling.
most likely heat try an OC without the increased Volts
What driver version? Version 266.66 is the most recent that is stable, 270.61 still has issues with multiple cards going into 2D mode from my experience. My 2 GTX560ti do not like 270.61 as one card would drop to 2D mode.
Another trick is stopping and restarting the client.
Games don't put 100% load on a GPU for hours on end.
49° when folding thanx for the help.
thanx but when go in safe mode 405mhz restar is the only way 270.61 is the driver that i use
so is ok if i oc the memory for example? thanks.
no need/very little gain from OC memory
Is going with 3 separate 2-hour periods be just the same or is there an advantage of doing this for 6 straight hours?
If we are talking GPU folding the difference is small. If it is CPU SMP running bonus units you lose a lot. There is a number of check points in the folding process (both kind) and each time you stop/start the client it would re-start at the last check point. That said you don't lose folding time when you are folding, but that you do when you stop the client, but you know that.
Edit: to see which kind of CPU units that gives a bonus look at this link http://fah-web.stanford.edu/psummary.html
If there is something else then 0.00 in the Kfactor column then there is a time bonus for fast completion.
Is there any real reason to run F@H within a VM or multiple VM's?
Trying to get the most I can these next few days, I'm down a few video cards so I'm rocking out all the cpu's I can get my hands on that account for anything.
Not any more.
