Oh looky what Santa just got Buck for X-MAS:)(apparently I get Santa's credit card bill). I wonder how the 8800GTS 320(96 SP) will stack up against the 8800GS/9600GSO's(96 SP also). It's still a steal for 77.99 + no shipping:D Also got the new X2 7750 Black Edition with 3MB L3. I should have everything up & running before New Years. Now I gotta go buy another 12/3 extension cord:shadedshu

Very cool!:toast:

But, I'm so jealous!:cry:

I want to build a folding beast right after Christmas. Money seems to be shrinking lately.:ohwell:

Party is @ mmaakk's place. With all your spare parts, we could have a rig building party and get another rig going for sure!:laugh:
Great idea Buck. All invited. Bring the beer and a new fuse box.

Funny story: I was using the vacuum this morning and the power went down. :shadedshu

I guess now with the new rigs, my fuse box is at "the razor's edge". :cry:

I've got 200 amps of service, so the fuse box is ok. I just have to run ext codes into this room to keep from popping breakers:eek:
I've got free electricity @ work, but no internet that I can use for F@H(damn mainframes). Anyone good @ hacking WEP encrypted wireless? With this next rig coming I have to figure something out.

Google WEP cracking and you will do fine;)

The lower one "MPICH" is the more popular version. Some believe it produces more PPD.
OK. After screwing around with the MPICH version for a couple of hours I could not get it to run. So I downloaded the deino version and got that running OK. I have to say they could make the whole SMP process a lot more user friendly. Anyways it is up and running and giving me about 2800ppd on my Q6600. Running the non-SMP I would get between 200 and 600ppd depending on the mood of the core :) With the new NVidia drivers the load demand on the CPU is almost non-existant so that freed up cycles to spend on SMP.

I had to stop folding on my wife's graphics card since she has been getting some crashes lately and it is critical that her computer is stable. So that is an 8800GT offline. Switching to SMP on my quad gains back about half the points anyways.

i fold with a 8800gts 320mb it sclores pretty much the same as my 9600gso and it has 96 shaders so it plays nice in the same mb as my 9600gso.

i tried running a 9600gt and the 8800gts together but they both were getting very low ppd, swapped things around to 8800gts and a 9600gso and that rig puts out about 9000ppd

Yep, that's the one. Ok, install Set Affinity II as a service. Start SMP & your GPU client. Lock GPU2(Fahcore XX.exe) to CPU core 3 and lock SMP(Fahcore A1, A0) to cores 0,1,& 2. Make sure your settings are added to favorites in the right side column and check the box for Auto-Set Affinity. Upon start-up these settings will be applied. The Clients are now isolated from each other(they do not play well together;)). You have now successfully set up the clients and now you can experiment with overclocks:D
Ok, done. Few problems along the way though :confused: Every time I set the affinity to one of the cores, the affinity program crashed (EDIT: Fixed by using PriFinity instead). I reopened it and the affinity did change, but I'm not sure it will do it automatically from now on :( No results in yet on how well its running, but I guess it takes awhile on a 1760 point WU.

Also, still took a hit (from the looks of it) on the gpu which is down a few hundred points (without a cpu going it was close to 2900ppd). The cpu will make up the difference and more, but still it would be nice :D maybe when ATI fixes its cores...

Final thing: does the ppd increase to full potential over time or something? Or is FahMon just not good at early guesstimations lol because the ppd on my laptop keeps increasing (at 1850 now).

*Edit* ok I lied, one more thing :) BUCK NASTY, so said to experiment with overclocks. Well my cpu board, the last time I checked, doesn't support by any means overclocking so I am forced to do software overclocking using SetFSB. This also overclocks ram which so far has been the thing that holds me back from going further. I have already underclocked the ram to reach this far and I can't do it again. Any suggestions? (That don't involve buying a new board)

stanhemi, can you find me a link to the FarCry 2 no cd crack that team FTL was distributing? I'm trying to get a copy to Pande Group so they can investigate this. A few of us just resurrected a complaint thread over @ The Folding Forum and Pande Group is taking notice.

http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=6221


i fold with a 8800gts 320mb it sclores pretty much the same as my 9600gso and it has 96 shaders so it plays nice in the same mb as my 9600gso.

i tried running a 9600gt and the 8800gts together but they both were getting very low ppd, swapped things around to 8800gts and a 9600gso and that rig puts out about 9000ppd
Do you notice the 8800GTS 320 sucking alot more power than the 9600GSO?

Far cry 2 by razor1911 http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4500582/RAZOR1911_%5BWEB_SEED%5D_FAR_CRY_2_CRACK_-_REAL_100__FULLY_WORKING


"In case anyone didn't know, the file in this crack entitled "FAH" is an acronym for Folding@Home, a Stanford uni project that will use your spare CPU cycles to compute protein folding. This hampered the performance of Far Cry 2 on my PC pretty heavily, so if you don't have much memory or a slow CPU you might want to disable the process FahCore_78.exe in task manager."


I need to download the torrent to be 100% sure.

OK i got it.i have the file in my pc BUCK NASTY if you need it.

Just wanted to let you guys know I'm with you. Just started folding today. Sadly the only machine I can offer to the cause is my old P4 laptop. It won't put out near as much points as the high-end machines many of you are using, but like I said, it's all I got. TPU's gonna be top 100! :rockout:

I'm playing around with an ATI 3870. Mod Bios for voltage...

I would like to say that is kind of a "difficult task" or simply "pain in the butt" :D

No satisfactory results though...:shadedshu
I was considering a bios flash for my 3870 back before I became a Nvidia Fanboi:slap:. Good thing I gave it to my son instead. At least it would make a nice paperweight if bricked.

Now everybody listen very carefully:

DON'T DRINK AND FOLD! COULD BE BAD!! JUST LIKE THIS ...HEHE

:toast:
Yes, it was a joke, but did I deserve a nutkick???? C'mon man...
