Im just getting FAHMon to calculate my PPD on the 3850, what did you say yours was?
I figure we have roughly the same setup
Yes my CPU usage is usually 3-5% when i run my 8800
My 3850 is claiming 1410ppd so I'm not worried about it. I'm just trying to figure out how to get the maximum out of my CPU. Let me know what your CPU ppd and GPU ppds are though, our systems are very similar.
Put arm over shoulder, pat.
Our team is averaging just shy of 242,000 PPD! That makes us the 47th team in productivity.
@ Thermo here is a pic of my Resource Monitor and I have 4x FahCore_a1.exe running on mine.
You should have the same with yours, mine is a dual core Opty at 2.8 and it gets 400~500PPD so you should be getting more with your setup.
I get 900-1100 PPD on my E8500, exact same settings minus the -verbosity 9 flags. However as Oily points out, you should have 4 of the FahCore_a1.exe running, not just 2. Not sure why it'd only have 2 going. I'll let you know what my research turns up.
Unfortunately there has been a downward trend in production this month, it was a higher at the beginning. That being said it's still really great. I'm going to fire up my folding programs for the rest of the month for the push to the top 100 even though my roommates don't like me doing it because it increases the electric bill.
I did have that many last night when I was using [-smp 2], but I thought maybe that was to many processes so I just used [-smp] instead. That being said, when I had that many running I still only accomplished 4% in 7hrs so I thought I would try it this way.
Right i have the 3850 and MPICH SMP with -SMP flag set up. Will give it a fair few hours (while i go to work) so it can calculate the PPD.
I have the flag set up like this, without the 2.Maybe you could delete the core and work unit from the folder and then start it up again and see if it kicks all four into life again.
Maybe people folding for Stephanie?
My A64 4000+ at stock speeds (2.4GHz) is currently cranking out 509 PPD on a 401 PT WU. Sure seems like your dual core, at 400MHz more, should be doing better than it is.
how long before i have any stats? i just started 2 hours ago on cpu and gpu.
i7 920 @ 3.8ghz & gtx295 @ stock
how fast will this fold?
Depending on the clocks on the card, should be fast. My 260's do a WU in about 2 hours, don't have the CPU folding.
10k-12k PPD for the 295 iirc. Not sure on the CPU but I'm guessing 3-5k. Get F@hmon going and see what PPD you're getting.
so 2 295's + i7 would do ~25k ppd?
295 is getting REALLY HOT!
Yea, the cards get insanely hot while folding. I can't run the same OC I use for benching or gaming when folding.
where do i go to view my stats? the stanford site doesnt seem to update very often.
Holy Crap, is Fitseries3 folding?
Thanks for helping man. The I7 has been estimated to do 5k ppd on all cores. With a GPU running, you can only use 3, saving one core for the GPU's. You will to disable Sli and fold a separate client on each of the 295's cores. I can help you set it up if you would like. Are you game?
idk... if its not super easy then no. i change my setup alot so it may not be ideal to keep changing it all the time. im not running this all the time either. i dont have the $$$ to pay for the electricity this machine uses.
Do all those #s for PPD and speeds of my card add up? Considering that Buck has a 3870x2 capable of 10k PPD, I'm surprised that what is a much better card does worse. Also, I leave the tri sli bridge on since I just turn sli off after gaming when I start folding, is that bad?
Get FAHMON going and then click on your name.
There we go Thermo, that is all at stock as well
I have all Nvidia GPU's in my farm(20 to be exact). My best cards are 9800GTX+ and are averaging 6032 on 384 pt WU. Those are decent numbers for your 260's. Do you have them overclocked? I don't see a problem with leaving the Sli bridge on during folding. With Sli disabled the bridge is not active.
