newtekie1 passed you without any fanfare but Oily is honking his horn to let you know he's going to pass you. There's a large group gathering steam behind you!
It's nice to see Buck got some points today.
Hey Mmaakk, come to challenge me for my standing in F@H yet? You've been letting me get away with murder in your absence.
I'm glad to see you haven't been set upon by any revolutionaries or anything. I fear that day in and day out around here.
Buck is slowly creeping back into F@H. A/C is officially fixed, just in time for a cold front to roll through
Thanks Buck, El, Bogi and msgclb for the warm welcome back
Talking about "warm", over here (south Brazil) its only spring and we are very close to reach +40C already!
Thank God I'm only 40 minutes from the beach
So my team... the news ain't that good for now
I'm back to my home town, living with my parents and unemployed
OK, I have to confess that I'm not really looking for a job now. You know... summer is around the corner over here! Hehe.
For now my contributions will be limited to some crunching while my PC is on.
I got 2 ATI 5870 in CF and so far the folding support for the boards is a shame
Can't say the same to my new favourite game Borderlands were @ 1920x1080 and ALL MAX OUT I get 100+ FPS easy
Thanks TPU for the chance of beeing part of the family
Will keep in touch
Back up to 76K PPD. 2 more rigs to go...
I met with a friend last night with whom I had lost contact, told him about what I'm doing with F@H, and he's interested. Let's say I think he'll make a splash.
When I bought my 2 9600GSO's in June, I thought that I'd end up around 12th position. I'm at 15th and will be pushed down 2 spots in the next few days with what DD and POSPC are doing. If my friend does what I think he will, I'll end up another spot lower. 12.5K and 18th place!?! Prediction: 900K in 24 hours!
I remember when i first joined the team being in the top 20 was just a dream and out of reach.after some upgrades and added hardware that dream is reached(or atleast will be soon when my average gets backup from being down for ~2days)
Make that 19th!
About mid next week I should see a big increase in points, I've ordered a 9600GT to be used almost exclusively for F@H (and very little gaming )
my ppd is looking better with my new GSO. GSOs are perfect folding cards, I doubt I will ever let this one go- I will be increasing its shader clock past the +50mhz I put on it last night, hopefully I can get it to 1550-1600
Which model is it? I can save you some time and give you bulletproof o/c's.
Im pretty sure its this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130356
Got another GTS250 in another display machine folding now 24/7, took a HARD dip on PPD for a few days there, without that display machine at the store, I only run about 3k PPD.
Going to see if I can fetch a few 9800gtx/gts250's for my own folding machine at home, depends a lot on if I get this extra job or not...
i have learned that Windows 7 gives me lower PPD.My 3870 would get about 1.8k-2k PPD now it gets about 1.3k and my 8800GT got 5.8kppd now it gets ~5.65k PPD
I think i am going to try different drivers and change the Environmental variables again if that doesn't work then i'm going back to XP
Good card! Try 725/800/1725(unlink shaders). I use it on 12 cards 24/7
You know I have been thinking about if W7 actually lowers performance or not for Folding.
My GTX 275 @ 1585 shader puts out 9k roughly, something I think is pretty high for a 275. That comp runs 7 pro 64. I've retired my only Vista rig so there is no room to test. Seems like 7 is better for me though.
Sweet! I'll change it on the weekend, will run it through Furmark just to make sure and keep the EUEs away Thanks!
Really? On my 9300 I actually experienced a slight PPD boost, I was getting 890 PPD on 353pt WUs at 1530mhz shader, now I get about 950 PPD on 353pt WUs on 1530MHZ shaders
I think my problem is the environmental variables that i added to lower CPU usage folding on the ATI client if changing the values don't fix the problem then i am going to dual boot with XP and compare the 2
like i said above in this post i think it is the environmental variables. I am going to also check the PPD in the morning after the rig hasn't been used any for hours. possibly it is the extra eye candy that 7 has the XP doesn't(i was running just the plain boring look in XP and have everything on in 7)
need help guys... on ati 4870 the vrm temp runs around 101deg when folding is that safe? and one more im looking for cheap nvidia folder which one u guys recommend the 9600gso or 9500gt? ty
OK What the hell??? Came home to a 48k day and found three comps down and flannel all over my folding room. My first thought was Canucks! then it hit me El Fiendo wears flannel but after I calmed down I thought that if it was El Fiendo he would have taken all my 250s and gtxs. Anyway got em all back up again. Folding hard!
I don't like my vrm to be over 70c so i wouldn't say its safe... I recommend the 9600GSO it has more folding power then the 9500gt. If you can get your hands on a cheap 8800GT or 9800GT(low power or not) i would go that way
I'd see if you could clock the core down a bit and try to get the shaders to the next plateau. I've been folding with mine for months straight at 705/1782/900 (mem. I just left at stock, even downclocking it shouldn't lower PPD)
