It needs a good home, more details soon.....
Going to pause folding starting tomorrow for the WCG Challenge, but it'll be back up and running as soon as the Challenge finishes up.
Our latest crunching challenge is open- TPU folders are welcome to join in and/or hang out.
Hint- There's a very special prize available for an active dedicated TPU folder!
Wondering a couple of things here.
First, I have an awesome pair of EK cooled 7970's thanks to an amazing deal from @Norton ! How well will these fold?
Second, being a pair of cards, will I need to dedicate 2 cores/threads in order for both cards to fold?
It's been awhile since I was active in folding and I'm going to jump back in after the current crunching challenge has finished.
Of course, if I did happen to win that amazing 980Ti, that would be the folder card all the way! But, for now, I'm figuring on the pair of awesome cards I got from Bill.
If your name is on the list in this thread you are eligible to opt in for a chance to win a GTX 980Ti Kingpin
Those 7970 are not bad for folding tbh i used to fold on one but they are power hungry i down clocked mine a bit for efficiency reasons, good luck ont draw though bro.
Anyone having trouble picking up jobs on amd rx cards?? I keep seeing one waiting for a job and not the same gpu either.
I have a weird worry, my pc has been hard faulting now and again lately and have been doing all the obvious things im at stock etc then stock plus a bit volts , now stock memory profile jdec 1333 but ive had it just hang in use once too now , i was folding watching a video and had about ten tabs open.
Heres the weird part , looking through event logs every issue leading upto it was dhcp ip file security and remote control based.
So i unplugged the XP os atom powered cruncher from my network and the issues seam to have stopped, could it have been compromised and could my issues have been symptoms , my main pc is pretty secure.
dont sweat this issue i am struggling to get work units for my gpus atm but im going to stop folding at 220mill for a while anyway , ill be back ,in time.
im going to try some mining , im only saying so you all know where i went but good luck guys and gals.
i dont know if this allowed, but I am selling my GTX970's if anyone is looking to Grow their Folding Rig's HP. If your interested, send me a PM and we might be able to work something out. LINK

Decided to give my RX 580 a shot at folding for a little while- stats below:
Its been awhile since I did any folding- any thoughts on the ppd for this card?
It's good for an AMD GPU. Looks like those are ~300K PPD GPU's.
How does that compare to current NVidia gpu's?
Also, I adjusted the fan speed to get the temps to run a little better- currently running aroung 50% speed and temps are steady at 56C
You could consult this list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vcVoSVtamcoGj5sFfvKF_XlvuviWWveJIg_iZ8U2bf0/pub?gid=0
But, about the same as a 970/780 Ti and just behind a 1060.
I'll help anyone who Folds, or will promise to Fold, to get: EKWB Nvidia GTX 980 reference card waterblock - $40
Had to stop folding due to outrageous heat wave in SF Bay Area. My little folding box doesn't like the heat. Also, like everyone else in the area, I have NO A/C. (It hit 91 inside my apartment yesterday. )
The little PC that could is back folding.
I know in the wake of Houston, and for those who live anywhere in the US besides the west coast it seems like nothing, but it hit 106 in San Francisco. Broke the all time record by 3 degrees. In the land of fog and cool ocean breezes, virtually no one has A/C. I took a lot of cold showers.
Nice price on a water cooled GTX 1070: MSI GTX 1070 Seahawk EK X, 2x Toshiba 960GB SSDs
GTX 980 up and running!
Got a deal too good to resist from @thebluebumblebee
