One account, many "slots" on many systems for F@H.
One account, many "devices" for WCG.
You can use one account for all of them.
Hi Ladies and Gents,
Just started folding again after a move to the US from the UK. Finally built a machine and looking forward to contributing.
Well, for sure welcome to the US Evil!! Now are you folding for TPU? That is awesome if you are man.
I am yes. I folded for a few other people a while ago and I haven't had a PC for a while after the move. But I'm here now with a EVGA GTX780 Super Clocked and a small core i5 4670K.
Link is what I previously done with Folding on a much less powerful setup.
You should beat that in 3 days with a 780
* just make sure you're using a passkey for the bonus credits
As far as I know electricity is cheaper in the US than the UK. Enjoy.
Thank you. I got a new passkey and yeah electricity is way...way cheaper over here. I left my PC running last night while in work. Still within the first 10 WU and I'm 19th in the team for production. lol.
Seems I should easily beat my old score.
Thanks again for the warm welcome.
I have just joined the Folding@Home team now! I will try to fold as much as possible
Welcome aboard Evil and Layton
I just joing F@H TPU team of course. I will fold as much as I can.
How can I use my gpu to work?
Welcome! Did the installer not pick up your GPU's? CPU work isn't worth it - we recommend WCG for the CPU.
Some good setup info here:
@manofthem folds with 290's and @james888 folds on 750Ti's so they may be able to give you some additional tips
unfortunately not. I am trying to fold at my 750ti.
Wow my WCG badge is gone? lol.
Well didnt really crunch for the last month probably thats why. (sad)
Let's try adding it manually. Launch advanced control, select configure - slots then add. Make sure to select the little bullet next to gpu. Then add again. Then OK. Let's see what the client does.
I didn't have to do anything special for my 750ti's. Maybe try manually inputing a slot.
got it running.
I added manually earlier but seems not adding. But after restart, it just run.
I remove the cpu and cpu for boinc and use gpu for folding
Made a mistake in my previous post. Corrected.
You need to give Folding reserve a CPU thread for the Folding client.
I still love you guy's.
really? Just checked running processes and seems folding is using cpu core
I'm tired and not communicating clearly. I corrected my LAST post, hopefully that's clearer. GPU Folding puts a load on the CPU, as you've found out.. Therefore, a thread (or more according to the CPU) has to be reserved from the CPU if something like WCG is running on the CPU. If the Folding client does not have access to a CPU thread, the Folding PPD will suffer.
Words, just words.
I have to go back into the fog now...
