My deal is I crunch as well and don't know if do both 24/7 would hurt or not? I have three primary units that i would like to fold on with the following cards: xxx5870 with a 965BE proc, HIS 5770 with a phenom ii 9650 quad, and a evga gt240 with a core ii quad Q8400. I would like to get all three set up folding/crunching at the same time but don't know if this is possible. I have tried to set up the 5870 with the gpu2 client but get an error saying my gpu isn't supported. All help is appreciated thank you

For the 5870 use the console client, not the system tray one.

if your are using the console client, and it still refuse to work, you have to edit the shortcut name

How to?

here: Setting up GPU2 on ATI cards!

Good luck!

here: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Stats

or you can download FahMon (to keep track of the client progress, etc) and select the client, then go to the "web" tab and select "my stats"

to add a client select "clients" then "add new client", in location, put the folder where the client was installed, i think it should be here (maybe): C:\Users\Gary\Downloads\Folding@home-Win32-GPU_Vista-623

Once again, thank you all for making me feel most welcome !

How do these times on the SMP client look ?


It takes about 2-3 (timing it now) hours to complete 10,000 with the Gpu client, btw.

Been a while since I used CPU so not too sure. Your best bet is to use a monitoring app like HFM.net. That will let you check your PPD and gauge if everything is working fine or not.

You sure a Green edtion will handle that ? Im on default clocks, 675/900/1458. :D
It'll handle it. Just watch your temps and raise fan accordingly.

You have at least another 3K ppd awaiting, if you can get the core and shaders up there.

I know you said shaders only heh..;) but I want to work it up to Gts 250 specs.
The box my card came in has a label that says 700 for the gpu clock hehe.. so they dont even know lol...
Gpu temps were about 49C, before the OC. If this holds, in a week or two, Ill bump the memory up to 950 or 1000mhz.

Sorry I didn't introduced myself before

So hello, I had a look at F@H and realized this "introduce yourself" thread so here I go.

I've been member of Techpowerup forum but almost never posted. I read the reviews a lot.

My name is Amalfi Marini ("TheFumigator" or just Fum).
I live in Montevideo Uruguay, I study software engineering or lets say "computer science". I work as video editor and I teach maths, and PC repairing and networking courses.

I'm folding on my good old Phenom 9550, my Geforce 8200 IGP, an my other system is an old Celeron 1100Mhz that my father uses for his tasks (mostly email and internet).



As I do heavy tasks (video editing and others) numbers aren't as good as they could be, but of course, better systems in the future will improve my numbers. Still I climbed from last position to top 300 in a month or so. New nvidia on my sight... Not considering upgrading my phenom yet, I'm still quite happy with it.

Strangely I cannot get into the stanford website... is it down or what?

Laters,
Fumigator.

Can you give us a HFM shot? You should be able to get bonus points on your Phenom X4 (and thus far better PPD)

It seems much better now :)

Do I have to change something on the SMP config to make it even better?

Do you have the SMP client set up with a passkey? If so, that's it :)
