Looks good mate :D
oo and NICe PPD :rockout:
Yes, I know.
At first I was only going to put my previous flight sim rig at work for this folding.
But since corona is really affecting everyones life now, I went all in with my GPU collection and old PC's I still had laying around.
I am running all my cards on a powerlimit, to be kind to my ears and electricitybill.
And I am still looking out for some extra GTX 1080 FE cards to replace my Maxwell GPU's.
Those FE cards are really the best when it comes to maintainance.
Unscrew 4 screws for the shroudcover, unscrew 4 for the finstack and your good to go.
I can repaste a GPU and have it up and running again in 15 minutes. I love these cards.

@mstenholm , I just replaced a Titan X Maxwell for a more efficient GTX 1080. The Titan X can go back to looking pretty in my collection :D.

Yes now that @XZero450 is slacking ;) @Jacky_BEL is all that stands in my way for cherry pie but I welcome the challenge. A 2070+1070ti is standing by to when the snow/colder weather hits my part of the world.
My first big slice of pie. I had to get it now, before you and @XZero450 billionaires get back to full strength.

Just started up. Figured with the cold finally settling in, may as well use some silicon to throw some heat into the home office. Currently have an i5-2500 paired with an R9 270 that I'm planning to run... let's say 23/7. If the jobs for both finish up pretty close to each other at some point, I may add a 6870 and see how long it takes to kill an EVGA 450 W3.

I changed my Pascal cards settings a bit for undervolting, thanks to @Vayra86 .
GTX 1080's running cooler now, but the same strategy didn't work for the Titan X, it just ignored the thermal limit and was getting real toasty.
So i had to restrict the power limit even further.

How much further did you have to reduce the power limit @Jacky_BEL ??

The powerlimit I have set is more of a failsafe, when the thermal limit gets broken.

On the GTX 1080 i didn't use the power limit, but the thermal limit instead, and it worked very well (power limit was at 100%).
So i used the same strategy on the Titan X, but that didn't go as planned.

So I did a +175 Mhz core clock offset, a 70C thermal limit and an additional 50% power limit, which gives me a 0.6810 core voltage, and a 72C temperature.
Fan speed at +/- 2065 rpm, which I am happy with.
Average power usage is at 44% TDP or 108W board power draw.

This is at this moment, but it can vary somewhat, depending on the type of workunit given.

Adding some pcie lanes. Yes, the x16 slots bifurcate. Got tired of playing with desktop mobos. This'll be in a frame.
I don't have a badge code handy... stopped by to admire your pie stats.
I fold for another team, but it's nice to see how active the community is here and the support your team is getting.

Now that can rake in a lot of PPD :).
This is really a nice team, and generating interesting stats too.

Hi
I started folding a few months ago with an NVIDIA 2080Ti.
Since then built a new PC with a 2060 Super. I do have other planned GPU uses. No - not crypto mining!
2080Ti gets around 4M ppd and a bit at 90% power and 500MHz memory clock boost; 2060 Super about 2.2M at 90% power and 200MHz mem clock boost. I use MSI Afterburner to tune the GPU power curves.
In order to reduce the power consumption I've detuned the 2080Ti to 70% power limit and it is still doing 3.5M ppd & the rig is pulling 300-350W. That s about a 100W power reduction I think which is surprisingly good. Looks like diminishing returns for more power although I'd need to confirm that if I had the patience.
I do not use CPU slots at the moment. I find that they tend to pull down the GPU at least on the 2060 rig that has 'just' a 10400F 6 core Intel processor.
I wish I could get a 3080 GPU & sell one of the others but is seems the shortages are destined to last a long time.

Welcome to our world of folding. Nice hardware you got. You are right that a reduction in power can yield better ppd/watt. I'm not so sure that increasing the memory clock is doing the same but if you are game then you could test it. Right now it seem to be an endless stream of 13446 which seem to be fairly consistent in PPD so....

Edit: TPU is team 50711 btw ;)

Thanks. I agree about memory overclock. The ppd benefit is probably be small anyway, but memory is cheap to run.
Memory plus 200 on the 2080Ti now so I'll leave it a few days then increase back to 500 & see what happens.

Hello everyone on TPU, i've been a member here since last year. I had previously been folding on another site and as i'm now on here more have decided this is the place for my folding.
Any info required about my Pc can be found in my system specs. PPD 340062
Glad to be here
