Haha dude you crack me up!
Tried ocing the ten year old 500watt grey psu and it spat a flame out the back and went bang!
the mobo and that looks ok tho, no raised caps, burn marks etc! fingers crossed I can get it back up for folding.
You must be mad, I'm suprised the 12v rail had enough amps for a recent motherboard/GPU combo
the 12v rail was showing 9volts in hwinfo64, I was stupid to put it under pressure.
it was working non stop for two days at full load. but its all good its together with a diff psu
Hi Guys, I have done some F@home before, and I have also done alittle bit of WCG. I am looking to get my systems setup for the chimp challenge coming up. I was following the GPU guide for Nvidia, and it seems not be using the GPU, or atleast using it very little. Specifications are on the side panel for hardware.
If you used the beta setting, it won't use the GPU. A screen shot would be helpful.
Hi, I saw BUCK NASTY's post at TPU! WCG forum, so here I am to f@h.
Right now with a Dell XPS 1730 with 2 GPU (9800M GTX).
Welcome aboard HBalazs.hu! Please let un know if we can help you at all.
I did some crunching a while back (not a tonne - I only use one PC and it's my gaming rig). I had 2 x 7970's and moved them on, for gaming smoothness reasons and I bought a Titan to replace them.
I've dl'ed the F@H client and started playing around (as below):
But I'd very much like to utilise the full DP power of the Titan. Is there any way to use F@H with DP? It would give the card a reason to live.
I'll be an irregular contributor as it's still my gaming rig but if i can use the DP power of what is essentially a compute card then I'd be quite happy.
There's no FP64 client right now as far as I'm aware. If you set the Titan slot to beta you will get some 7663 work units which should get you around 120K PPD.
How do i do that?
Configure > Slots > double click the GPU slot (or highlight the slot then click edit) > Add > name should be client-type and the value should be beta

Making use of a spare server I've got, Poweredge 2950 III.
Dual Xeon E5405 (2 GHz, Quad-Core, 12 meg cache), 16 gigs DDR2 FBDIMM, Server 2008 R2.
The server I use regularly has the client running on low priority, specs:
Dual Opteron 2384 (2.7 GHz, Quad-Core, 6 meg cache), 48 gigs DDR2, Server 2012 Datacenter.
Currently there are no "real" GPUs in either of these, just the ATI ES1000 framebuffers (hey, I can do software DX11 rendering!), however I'm working at getting my GT440 back from a friend. Despite the fact that it seriously sucks, I don't need to use a power cable on it and I already own it.
Going to try folding at work while I'm out on calls.
Just got 7.3.6 running on my i5 3317u Asus laptop. Along with Crunching for WCG.
I set BOINC to 50% Processors and 75% CPU useage. My task Manager no says the CPU is 100% but, after running for over a half an hour, still no progress.
Unsure if I am ACTUALLY folding, or not. ?
yes you are - on 4 threads. You can change the number of threads in configure-slots
Yea, it is still not worth it. I have determined to continue with WCG until I can get my Farm back, 3 desktops in storage. Then, I will configure one, or more, for Folding. All I am really doing is slowing down BOINC and therefore not helping either Team much.
Until then, take care!!
Hi, shortymagordy here, been reading these forums for a couple of years now, not sure if this is right place for post. I kept reading about folding and was extremely intrigued. It's been said one man can make a difference, wasn't sure if one more PC can. (I hope so ) So I have become a member to Techpowerup, and downloaded program from folding@home, joined your folding team, and currently working on my first folding project. The PC I am using is under System specs. I have lost friends and family to some of these diseases and I hope my contribution can help this world to get one step closer to finding the answers we are desperately seeking. I really do hope that this helps.
Happy to be here !!
Welcome @shortymagordy ! Make sure that you get and use a passkey. You will also want to make sure that you give the GPU one core from your CPU. AMD CPU's are not that great at F@H, so you may want to consider running WCG on it and F@H on the GPU. If you have any questions about WCG, just post over at http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/tpus-wcg-boinc-team.85784/ . We have 2 great Distributed Computing teams here at TPU and we work together from time to time.
using passkey, not sure how to give GPU one core from CPU, using default settings. I set up WCG, thank you for the easy tutorial, Do I let both WCG and F@H work simultaneously. Thank you for your help.
no, you do not want to run both F@H and WCG on the CPU at the same time. Just stop the slot for the CPU in the F@H client.
The CPU has been being used by F@H and is @89% complete, if I stop it now will the GPU take over and finish that task ? so on the default of WCG it primarily uses the CPU ? and again thank you for your assistance ?
Set the CPU slot to finish.
