new clocks on the v-modded card 6010.43* PPD
Way to go DOM!
nice work Dom, good show
Very nice work there DOM! Those are some amazing clocks you have!
Well this is what I now have to work with, I'm not gonna OC her quite yet, but so far with my new GTX260 I'm only snagging around 5K ppd avg est in FAH Mon. It's an improvement I suppose tho! But I have my rigs getting some serious work done lol! Keep in mind this is short term for me, when I get a different place I dont' think I'll get to enjoy the utilities including power anymore...so I may just stick with GPU's for folding...hard saying.
I'm curious how well she OC's, I gotta say the fan setup is has is mighty impressive,moves a lot of air without nearly the sound I'm used to from other coolers! She's running pretty good thus far tho! Also it seems the WU my G/F's e6300 is on has shot it's PPD up substantially! Went from 1300-1500 all the way up to 1800-1900PPD! Pretty good for a dual core imo!
That's quite the folding factory going on
its going up now. just gota GTX280 folding for me for a while... at stock, its 6,800PPD
the TPU factory is startin to crank some serious PPD
at this rate I don't think it'll be a problem hitting 2 million ppm
I woulda had a 10000 + ppd yesterday but both my smp clients missed days end by 6-7 min lol. So close
We are definatly crank'n out the wu's now, and think, on average it's only 'bout 40 of us
Damn, I'm down to 6th in the production numbers. Looks Like I really need to get some GPU folding going...
Good thing I just ordered another 2 9800GTX's and an eVGA 9600GSO w/ upgraded cooling.
Damn! I don't think you need to worry too much dude! You've been in for the long haul anyways! I dont' know how many rigs you got folding, but you have definately shown more dedication that most of us have! I hope to continue my dedication now...even if it's fewer FAH programs running simultaneously!
You could always mod that GSO like DOM did and get that thing really cranking out the WU's! I don't think it'll need it tho, with the extra shaders compared to a GT it's already better folder, hell it's getting better est. avg PPD than my GTX260 atm, I don't expect that to last with newer beta's and drivers, but I could be wrong there!
I'm also curious how those 9800's do in folding too, I bet they're pretty sweet!
Hmm my 280gtx only getting 3000 something ppd others here with previous generations cards achieving ~5000~? Maybe because I am using MSI drivers that came with the card? Although it says v177.26 driver
Unfortunately I think I have to give up folding on the card because I have the high-pitched squeeling issue coming from my 750 watt red crossfire edition pc power and cooling 60 amp single rail psu! Only when running the GPU client. If I reduce the stock overclock it comes with 650 down to 600 it is quieter but still there coming from the PSU.
I read this occurs on some video cards and psu's in the coils. There is a huge thread at f@h forums about it but most people say it's coming from their cards and only some from their psu.
I don't know if it may damage the psu or components in my system so for now i'm not running the gpu client <<(not because of it but because my psu sound). Maybe I should RMA my psu? It also happens when running ati tool at 2000 fps but a somewhat different sound from the psu. Does'nt happen during the couple games i've played on it. Thanks for reply
You should try at least drivers 177.35, there are many posts about that driver giving over 1kPPD increase for many. I didn't use the drivers that came with my card for the same reason..177.26's are already outdated..I'm on 177.66 drivers actually, if you go into the NVidia section there's a thread about those drivers. Seem to be no different in PPD from .35's though. Some WU's vary though, I had one drop my GTX to about 3500 today...another I was at 5700...same with my 9600GT today too..one at 4400 another at 3000...dunno what the deal is.
That PSU shouldn't be squealing tho..that could mean bad news, maybe google that PSU and see if others noticed it...I know some components may make some noise under heavy stress, it might be ok, but hard saying in reality...maybe contact PC P&C and see what they have to say.
Remember ATI Tool, Furmark (you didn't mention, but I bet it would cause the same thing) and FAHGPU are going to stress your GPU, i'm sure some games may also get the load high enough to cause the squeal..but you might not notice due to listening to the game..or it may just peak and drop not loading long enough to cause the noise...
I'd start with contacting the MFG of the PSU and see if there's an issue and maybe a reason to RMA it...I dunno how they're customer service is tho...
I've got ~14 machines folding witht he CPU client. Most of them are Celeron D machines clocked between 2.66GHz and 3.2GHz. A Celeron 430@2GHz. I've got 2 Pentium D 805's, one clocked at 2.66GHz and the other at 3.2GHz. An E2180 clocked at 2.4GHz, an E2180 clocked at 3.33GHz(in my sig). An E1200 clocked at 2.1GHz.
The E2180 is the only machine from my sig and specs that is actually folding. My Q6600, E6600, and Athlon X2 are all going unused.
Damn dude! Nice farm you got there...I just have my rig and my g/f's rig, I have enough pieces to build another 2-3 rigs, just haven't gotten around to it lol! Plus I got no room for em yet! Cool that you donate so much to folding though, and keep the dedication going.
Hmmm, there's some competition going here!!
Finally got everything running. The 8800GTS is doing 5760 ppd, the Phemon 8650 is @ 1080ppd, and the trusty 3870 is runnin @ 2932(seems high for ATI) on the new E8400 rig watercooled @ 4ghz. Current Total :9700 ppd
I still have SMP on the E8400 and I am looking for another 8 series card. I have my sights on 12k+ ppd
I wish I had more than 2 cores to fold on!
But, I suppose every lil bit helps.......Go Team TPU!
+1. It would be nice to have more then 2 cores to fold...
But i have my x2 and a x4 folding so it isn't so bad. my x2 puts out about the same PPD as the x4 when running the SMP
Anyone notice issues downloading new work and submitting completed work on the GPU2 client? It's happening on both my rigs...I suppose it could be my router or something, but it just started happening last night iirc.
Yeah I have a WU that seems not to want to upload to the server,50 odd failed attempts,but will let it run till later and see if it is just a problem with the result server.
my nets been going out again all last night lost alot of points
1920 in 24hrs 0 today
my gpu clients were down all night... couldn't download new wu's. I cleaned out some files, rebooted (is that a word?), started the clients in regular fashion. The clients downloaded all the necessary files and have been folding without problems since. If you have unsent wu's, not wu's that failed to delete, EDIT: it'd be worth it to check the fah forum or wait and give them a chance to be submitted.
There may be another solution but this worked for me...
files I deleted:
all leftover undeleted wu's in the work folder
I have a couple finished ones that in in queue to be sent when I finish my next WU on my rig...my G/F's rig just got all it's sent out a few minutes ago...I'll give it till tomorrow and see if it clears up.
yeah, I didn't have any unsent wu's ... only wu's that had failed to delete and I would have had to remove those anyways.
when I scoll up through the log lext file, if a wu failed to delete it will say so and indicate that you should check for and delete stray files. I check every couple of days and delete the strays that are indicated
SMP keeps hanging on my X2 again so it looks like i am not going to be using that anymore. The P3 and P4 both aren't folding because it get too hot in the room. so my ppd aren't going to be doing so good
Just bought a 8800GS on the EGG for 79.00 after rebate. Here comes another 4500+ PPD. Make room for me in the top ten withing the next 1-1/2 weeks
