Added my AMD 6300 to the mix, folding a little more now
Sorry, but my electricity bill is going through the roof due to having to sit around all day nursing a summer cold for three weeks. (Too much TV and game playing.) So I have to turn off my 660 Ti folding machine for a while. I'll be back at it in early June. (Damn tiered pricing.) Good news: my cold is gone.
Power bills always suck and so do summer colds
I'll be moving to Summer settings myself after the challenge ends- will see what I can setup for folding at my two remote sites. Thinking I can get away with one of the 7870's at one of them but the 7970 may have to go to part time until the Fall
Good to hear your feeling better!
FYI: I've stopped Folding so that I can dedicate all my cores to the WCG challenge. Don't know if I'll be back until the fall.
Visiontek refurb Radeon 7770's here for $54.99
I've parked the 7950 for the summer. Probably not going to be running anything else until it gets cold again.
Thanks for what you did agent!!
Titan giveaway thread is up and running:
Started folding today with my 680, and joined techpowerup team.
Welcome, sounds like we're both new to the team, as I started yesterday. It's going to be some fun!
Haha, cool. Crunching and folding full blast, water temp is 37c lol
Got my Folding Badge! Man it feels so good
Weird goings on last 2 days: I've been getting some BSODs, WHEA uncorrectable error on Win8.1. I'm not sure what the issue is, but I'm assuming it's related to Folding. I dropped crunching down to 6 threads yesterday, and it has persisted (2 BSODs in the last 4 hrs). I think i'm going to try for a clean driver sweep and see if that assists.
These issues didn't pop up prior to folding, and it went strong crunching, so I'm thinking it's related to this... Any ideas are appreciated.
Also: what is the recommended driver for the r9 series cards? I think I have 14.4 installed currently, but I'm going to clean it up
driver? temps of video card? temps of cpu? I allow 1 core and thread on my 2600k so 6 threads crunching.
Yes, that's how it's setup currently. 4770k and only 6 threads crunching. Temps are fine: CPU in the low 60s and GPU right at 50 (water cooling).
i'll give it some more fiddling and see if I can whoop this WHEA's butt
wished I could help more. No experience with a 290 looks like you are gonna be the lab rat.
No worries, I appreciate the help regardless. After some digging, I"m thinking it's less related to the GPU. I checked and though I didn't realize it before, I've had like 8 other Event ID 41 logs this month, meaning that it's happened before. Little more digging shows the subsequent bug check reporting an error 00000000124, and if it's anything like the old setups, that usually indicated a CPU stability issue, usually OC related.
All in all, I'm thinking it may be a slightly unstable OC. I'm going to drop 100MHz to see what happens, and if things persist, then i will readjust other stuff.
On the brighter side, I got the other 290 folding now on the i3 system. I don't know how long I'll be able to handle it because it's so loud, reference and not water cooled. If anything I think I'll be doing it just part time in the day. It would keep me up at night being so loud!
You are prob ably on the right track I had to drop the oc on all my Sandybridge cpu to run stable 4.1 ghz.
Na I think it is probably that 290. You should most likely ship that to me to do an extensive test on it.........Oh for the next year or so...........Bhahahaha.
Forget this clown, I could get it figured out in 6 months...
I'll fix it in 4 months but I would need both cards to do it!
It wouldn't come out as shiney though. It would practically glow...
Man, you guys are good! Glad I joined this team
