Nope. Id just be glad if it came sometime this week.
Dam sorry bro Good thing i went with priority over parcel.
IMPE (in my personal experience) parcel allow 1-3 past what they say, for priority or flat rate there more or less dead on, with a few exceptions.
USPS took over a week to get a package from WY to CA w/ Priority Service They are usually perfect like H@RD said, but over the Holidays? Forget about it- seriously.
Not a problem. It ain't your fault.
As someone who lived in Wyoming (Riverton) / spent most of my summers and Christmas's there, I would believe honestly this is most likely the weather, rather than the USPS, as it once took 2 weeks to get a postcard from the Yellowstone post office, to Cody (less than 300 miles(sent it there just to have the postmark)).
All the same sorry to hear, hope it arrives there soon.
P.S. Merry Christmas!
I may have been a little "inaccurate" when I said that msgclb was cooking up something. I better let him tell you what's in the works.
P.S. -bigadv rig #4 coming online by Christmas Eve. Go TPU Go!
woot! GTX 480 has just been delivered. Gonna start folding on this tonight.
I may setup FAH on my HTPC, is there a guide somewhere to get this going? also i have xeon 1156 quad @ 4ghz does that use bigadv?
just use fah gpu tracker v2, its soo easy, all you gotta do is run the program, it takes care of cpu, gpu and everything
just put in tem number and user name in options
I have a P55 rig being put together that only needs the processor that should be delivered tomorrow. It will all go into that water cooling system.
Yesterday I final got a X58 rig running at 3875 MHz. It is now running a 2686 project, 33.32 TPF and 73,506 points if it completes.
PS: On top of the case is an old 500W PSU that was bought when the first SATA came out. It has a 24-pin & 4-pin for power. It's being used to bleed the system.
Will it be a -bigadv rig? So two times 35 K PPD addition? Not bad at all.
I run around 30:20 on most off my i920 -bigadv WUs. That's close to 77.000. My hex is a fair bit faster and does them in 21:20 (92.5 K). Both rigs are 100 % dedicated, meaning no GPU folding and no other work. I will move my slower rig to my workshop tomorrow (1 C atm) and crank it up a bit :
man! -bigadv is where the money is at! I need to get me one of those
3 OC'ed 460s will do the same but at a higher operating cost.
An OC'ed 460 would give about 12k PPD at most. 3 would make it 36k PPD. It seems -bigadv occasionally gives a lot more.
Yes, a -bigadv rig it will be. It's my first P55 rig so hopefully I won't run into any problems. My goal is to run my soon to arrive i7-870 around 4 GHz.
That first -bigadv rig currently has no GPU folding and my P55 rig won't either. I don't know how much running a GPU would slow the -bigadv WU down.
Brandon setup folding at home like now! Use that 460 which is good for about 12k ppd at your clocks and use your 920 for bigadv! Or you could put the 460 in the 920 rig and put the 5850 with you xeon since games don't really use HT anyways you won't notice a difference! Your 920 and 460 would put my teenie points to shame but not for long as i'll be up there with ya!
Why do you thinking im switching to -bigadv?
Yeah i was wondering that. So say i have my 920 running at like 4.0ghz and then i add two gpu2 clients how much would that slow bigadv down? I know gpu2 uses much less resources than gpu3 so im not forsure. Think i could get 40K+ PPD? Both gpu2 clients pull in about 12k together.
Here is a sample Both rigs running on an -smp 7 flag
i7 920 @ 3.8Ghz with 2 Gigabyte GTX460 768MB
i7 950 @ 3.8Ghz with 2 Sparkle GTX460 1GB
I lose around 2:00 TPF (3 K PPD) running one GPU2. 4.0 GHZ will yield 36 K PPD on its own. Running two GPU2 cards will decrease that number with around 3-4 K so in the end you will have at least 40 k PPD, yes.
Edit: Some will gain running with only 7 treads (smp 7 flag) but I suspect that the ones with the more CPU intensive GPU3 client, as Bogmali.
Hmmpph! Everyone ignored...lol. I'm gonna post again and elaborate a little:
So, we could create a thread where we keep a tally of all the excess hardware Team TPU folders have lying around and willing to donate. And then we'd have people who have free / cheap or flat-rate electricity who don't mind donating that. These rigs we put together won't be anything high end but should get us a few thousand PPD. Of course, the requirement would be that the folding rigs run 24/7 without a minute's rest so people who volunteer to adopt a folding rig should be cool with that.
We could always lay down rules such as shipping prices to be shared, if someone who houses a folding rig is unable to fold anymore, he must post and make sure the rig finds a new home. We could probably even make do without cases so as to keep shipping cheaper.
If you want "a lot more" then 36 K PPD (points per day) then a normal quad is not enough. Mayby you are mixing up the points per unit with points per day. It takes more then 2 days to complete a -bigadv on a quad and for that you get 65-75 K point.
oh, wow! yes, i did get them mixed up. Wasn't aware it takes that long to complete a -bigadv
HOLY CRAP! Look at all the work units completed! That's just nuts man whats the uptime on that rig?
Oh and why does the 950 get like 4k more PPD than the 920 clocked at the same?
So i would be best off just running -smp8 as gpu2 isn't cpu intensive? 36k-4k=32k+12k=44k PPD!
