Thank you for finally posting something CP.
Coming in slightly late, but I switched over my 5870 and GTX260 to ChimPowerUp.
Giving it a go aswell The only time I ever folded before this was about 6 years ago, folding with boinc on my Turion TL-50 lol(if that is folding at all).
I'd gladly turn my FX-8120, the two GTX8800's(if those are of any worth at all) a E6800 to folding, and if you guys think it'll add something meaningfull, my laptop aswell(when its not in use).
What resources would you guys suggest I use from my rig when I still want to play diablo III aswell? Furthermore, I guess I'll need a passkey.
Edit: The download link for V2 doesnt seem to be working for me.
I'm not sure if you can do that with your AMD FX cpu, never cared to find out. All that hardware is decent and worth adding. As for resource use when gaming, I just pause everything and restart it when I'm done.
Well I managed to screw up the boinc install on my machine with the GTX260 in it when switching over to ChimPowerUp (it was running the GPU2 client, switched over to the v7 client), and the boinc site seems to be down, so I switched the CPU over to SMP for ChimPowerUp for now. It's an E2140 at 3GHz.
I'm trying to join the Chimp Challenge like last year with exactly the same rig (2600K @ 4.2 GHz and GTX 470 @ 701 MHz) and OC.
I installed the V7 client and got:
- p7642 for GPU, PPD 12417
- p8014 for SMP, PPD between 17k and 27k
I've got a couple questions:
- Is this the best I can get or are there some useful options? I don't have any additional parameters now, but last year I was folding bigadvs.
- How can you notice that the passkey is incorrect? I put the same one as last year, so it should be OK.
- Afterburner shows only 89% GPU usage, is this normal?
Unfortunately, I won't be home for next days so I have to leave the rig to fold alone and hope it is all OK.
do the code is only for bigadv then ?
SMP only doesn't need the code ?
Cool... this year I'm putting more PPD with the gpu alone than last year with 2 pcs:
ION N330 / E5200 + 4850
Is it normal for the gpu to behave like that ?
Have not been folding for TPU since I defected to LOSIAS... but I reckon I can climb back on board for this one.
GTX580 standing by. Just need to change that team number and username yeah??
Hmm something seems off at the laptop, the 5650 is generating ~3,2K PPD, while the i5 460M is only generating an estimated 58PPD. Am I doing something wrong? Running the CPU as SMT device, and its sitting at 100% utilisation all the time.
Well... on my PC GPU core alone uses 50-60% from my Pentium G620..... I choose to disable smp and use only uniprocessor for now.... as I think SMP can interfere with gpu or even get very low ppd....
Well, it solved itself apparently, now its doing 2,3k PPD again. So no probrem!
Yes, just change the username to ChimPowerUp and the team to 50711.
Do I need to do the "bigadv" thing on my 2600K? Also How do you set that up?
I believe I'm on it. It says Name: ChimPowerUp and Team: 50711 on the visualization screen.
put the passkey in, but unless you have 16 cores, don't bother with bigadv
I will add my home system tonight 5870 at 1052core currently, and 1100T at 3.7Ghz.
I might add a few other systems onto this, some have been slowly taken off as we need more processing horsepower.
when the scores will be on air ?
I'm getting around 8.3k PPD with a g620 (single core) + 6870.
I still need the code for SMP. Later I'll test if it's better to put the 2 cores from the g620 on at expense of the 6870 score or leave 1 core for the 6870
With SMP3 and the AMD GPU client, the AMD cruncher has doubled its estimated PPD.
Hi guys, I'm from Italy and I want to give you my support... I'm folding with 2500K and 8800GTX.
Can anyone give me the passkey ?
Question. Both my GPU and CPU WUs are at 99.99% w/ a 1 second to finish estimation, but they've both been there for over an hour. What's happening?
edit: CPU switched over finally but here's what the GPU situation is...
Bit late too, switching over my box now.
Thank you Pete. We appreciate the help
What does that mean?
Everything looks fine. Less than 100% for the P764x's is normal.
ALL SMP needs the passkey.
Your best result will be leaving a core/thread for the 6870
Run at SMP-5 to give your ATI/AMD GPU a core to work with.
