You wouldn't happen to be running gpu3 on the 5770 would you?
Have you tried to set it up without using the "Auto Set GPU"
If your HD5770 is in the first slot on the board manually set it as GPU0,
and then set your 260 as GPU1.
EDIT: Your Tracker configure should look like this for the GPU section -
It looks like El Fiendo wants to have pie again. A -bigadv just found its way back to Stanford.
Got a i7-920 running. When I get 4.0 GHz stable I will start folding on it.
So now you're going to have 2 bigadv rigs?
Woke up at 4am on my day off, got bored, decided to get back into this a bit. Due to the fact I can't drive up my electric bill, my MacBook Pro will be going 24/7, PS3 and PC once in a while, but ya. If any one can help me get bigadv set up, would be great. Thanks.
EDIT: Since starting the CPU folding the GPU (5850 w/ 5870 bios doing 900/1200) PPD has dropped, any suggestions on that?
Why are you running 2 CPU clients? 1 client w/ the -smp 7 flag will give far better PPD (and leave 1 thread free for the GPU)
Cause I needed you to tell me to do that. Thanks
In general, the fewer SMP clients you can run (really, there's never any need for more than 1) the better
IIRC the SMP client will use up to 64 threads
When I first was playing around with SMP on an i7 920, I think I tried -smp 8 but was only getting like 40% CPU usage across the board, and eventually had to break it down into 4 clients running -smp 2, then tried -4 just now. Guess either I had done something wrong earlier, or F@H updated their stuff.
Yes when I'm home (in Denmark) otherwise the new one will be crunching. It needs to show at least 14 days of stability before I will leave it for days unattended.
EDIT: I'm at 4 GHz now at 1.31 V. 65 C, but it is sitting in my office with another rig (450+460). It will be moved to a colder location later today. BTW if you struggle with high CPU temperatures then I can highly recommend to replace the quad with a hex. Mine is running at 4 GHz and 52 C (ok, 17 degree C room).
That's what i call a stability test...
I'd love a hex for a variety of reasons, but I'd also need a new board, and then the $500+ CPU. Not worth it for the temps IMO
I still think that the 5770 should be -gpu 0 and the GT220 -gpu 1.
Have you entered the Environmental Variables? Without them, the ATI client can really place a load on the CPU, and if the CPU is not available for the GPU client, its PPD will fall. Look at post #5 and 24 here: Setting up GPU2 on ATI cards!
Yes but loosing a -bigadv WU is a pita....so rather be on the safe side.
I use all 8 threads for both -bigadv and GPU. Just let them float on all cores and -bigadv will utilize the leftover cycles from the GPU.
I was suggesting leaving an entire thread free since it's an ATI card....but yes, in general, I don't think that an entire thread free for GPUs is needed
NVM, i was thinking less cpu usage with Nvidia.
@Buck. within the next 30 minutes my second 470 will arrive,will you be available for teamviewer?
I will....I have nothing going in for the next 4+ hours....just LMK
@ION did you get teamspeak setup?
Well....it works on my laptop, but no mic (too lazy to troubleshoot). I'll put it on my i7 later if I have time. But I vastly prefer Teamviewer
Here's a ss of all my stuff. Installing F@H normally in the past without any -GPU "n" flags always ran it on the GT 220 in slot 2. I don't know why my slots are seemingly reversed. As seen here, the GT 220 works seemingly fine.
i need someone to check out my folding settings through teamviewer,i got both clients setup but i think there folding the same WU,PM me for info
YGPM good sir
JSTN7477, GPU tracker only detects the GT220, so therefore it's going to assign it to -gpu 0 by default. The GPU client from Stanford is also bad at detecting ATI GPU's in a mixed system. Therefore you MUST force the client to detect and expect an ATI GPU (-forcegpu ati_r700) at -gpu 0 (the first slot) and change the GT220 to -gpu 1 (the second slot). Make sure the machine id's are different. -forceasm has to do with the CPU for some AMD CPU's a long time ago, so don't use it with a GPU.
