Also, does anyone know why FAH Tracker reports my PPD on my i7 less than what HFM reports it as? HFM is giving me 28.2k on a 2686 with 2 gpu2 clients running, and FAH tracker is giving me 26.3k PPD. Both numbers on the gpu are equal though, just the -bigadv that's off.
I would also like to thank Oily 17, for the sig image and teaching me how to change the colors Now i can sport off that new 1 million points!
I don't believe that FAH tracker considers the bonus points. HFM.net does
I don't think it shows the bonus points for the credit, where as FAH tracker reports it as worth 8955 points, and HFM reports it as worth worth 70k right now.
Honestly guys, what do you think about folding on the GPU's as well as the i7? Im getting 39k total with both gpu's running, and i get about 34.8k with just the CPU. Is it worth the extra power and heat for 5k?
I managed to get a little cash on some PC repairs, i could fix a laptop for $125, and sell it for around $300-350, so a profit of $175-225 and then i could sell my itouch for probably $100.
Hopefully i could make some hardware changes and get me a dedicated system so i don't need to interrupt my folding machine and my folding machine can get some gts 450's or something of that sort.
Edit: So i managed to get down to 25k PPD with my i7 and gpu2 clients running. Not worth it to me, so i'll only be folding the i7 for now on this rig till i can find some different cards or something. So only expect points every 2 to 2 and a half days for me for now at the moment.
Did you try it with smp-7?
No i haven't yet. What should 1 less core drop my PPD too?
Nope, you'll actually gain ppd. By using a spare core for the GPU's, you are avoiding any conflict between the -bigadv client and the GPU clients.
Even on my CPU i will gain PPD? Im reconfiguring my client right now
Okay, so with the cpu flag at -smp7 and running 2 gpu2 clients my total CPU usage is between 88% and 90%. Seem right?
100/8 = 12.5
So, yeah about 88% seems correct because your two GPUs will use a little of the eighth core.
Cool thanks! So far everything has seemed to even out alright. Im at like 43.3k PPD right now for total output on my rig. CPU is putting out about 29.5k PPD
I hope to be getting a 2nd hand asus M4A79T Deluxe soon, so i can finally go dedicated!
Hey guys quick question, so now that i have my 1 million points folding badge, what happens when i get a average of over 25k again? Does my 1 million points badge turn into a crazy folders badge or do i get both?
Current badge morphs into the "Crazy Folder" badge. You don't get both, unfortunately
Aww I like showing off my million
Just make sure you don't churn put more than 25k points a day, then
I think that the X million badges are more for the slow-and-steady type, and the Crazy Folder badges are for those doing high PPD. It can safely be assumed about most crazy folders that they have at least a million anyways, it would only take 40 days top @ 25k PPD to get a mil after all
Haha you must be crazy! I'll be turning more than 25k in on -bigadv days
Smp-7 seemed to help me out a lot! Running steadily at a good 43k PPD. Think it's worth trying to find a stable 4.2 clock? Im at 1.216 at 4.0
What are your current load temps?
Only if it doesn't require the voltage to go up much. I run my 860 @ 3.8ghz and get upper 60s load temps with it, 4ghz requires a lot more voltage and temps are in the mid-upper 70s.
Hmm. Well i guess i could see what it takes for 4.2 but im gonna wait till after this work unit finishes
Smart, you don't want to loose one in the middle
Exactly, im 56% done and that would suck!
I usually suspend WCG, OC, and then boot up and run LinX or Prime95 for 30 minutes. If it passes that, I typically fire up WCG again, but I was less willing to play with things "on-the-fly" when I was running FAH and it could lose more work at once.
So, the GTX 560 finally has a price to it ($250) and reviews show it to perform midway between the 470 and the 480. Considering 470s sell for almost the same price and give lesser performance, their price should start going down pretty soon.
Folders should be able to start picking up 470s a lot cheaper soon.
