Glad you're back folding, but most of all glad you've got your power back on and everyone's ok! :toast:

I was wondering what happened. I was chasing you and then you dropped off. Back to our friendly race ;)

My PPD has dropped by quite a bit since I have my GTX260 in step-up atm...just a 9600GT primarily with some CPU folding on the side. Hopefully in the next 7-10 days I'll be back up to speed again!

Nahh just the EVGA 260 Core216, I plan on keeping the card for a while and for the cost of shipping I get to step up to the more powerful 260. My current one was good, but I'm interested in seeing how the newer one does, even if it's minor, I'll still have a little more juice to keep this card going till it needs replaced.

I have a few questions though:
1) How much internet bandwidth does F@H use?
2) How well would my laptop work, with a PIII 850 MHz and 512 MB RAM?
3) Any ideas on how much power my Dell (see my system specs) would use running at full F@H power for a night?

I'm also having a problem: I've installed the command-prompt version (instead of the other one), and it says it can't connect to the work server. Anyone know how to solve it?

1) net bandwidth is negligible, just small files when download and sending in completed work units
2) I would bother with that laptop, you may run into overheating issues and the power consumption vs. producivity of a mobile P3 probably just wouldn't be worth it
3) not sure sorry :( I do know P4s are power hogs tho!


@ Buck Nasty, where do you get that sig summary box?

And we will be moving up faster now. I recieved my latest addition to my farm today. Behold the "raw folding power":laugh: of the Foxconn S-939 SLI mobo that will house 2 x 9600GSO. CPU will be clocked at a blistering 2.5Ghz:eek:. Should be up an running tonite for an extra 9k PPD.

Yeah, I've been remodeling my computer room the past few days so I've been off. Tonight, my 4870, 4850, 8800GS, E7200, Q6600, and my poor AMD 2800+ should all be folding away once again.:D

I have a question. What is the best way of folding with a crossfire setup and how would one go about doing it?

Check out this link. These guy's really know how to fold with over 1 billion points:

http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1330889
more specifically, this page: http://www.hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1032943617&postcount=5
took me about 10 mins to get my 9800GX2 folding independently on both cores
however if anyone can provide any insight as to whether the vga dummy needs to stay connected once the desktop has been extended or you can remove it I'd appreciate it!
thanks

With Vista, you must reconnect it each time you re-start the system. No plug required with XP. This is from my experiance's with dual GPU's

sounds good so I can D/C after extending the desktop and there won't be any problem? (as long as I don't reboot)
Yes, you can disconnect after you get it running. If anyone is going to run multi-GPU, XP is the only way to go.

Well finally got the MoBo in and got her running now. Had a tough run with pain in the ass Rivatuner. It would not allow me to O/C the 2nd card. Took 2 driver reloads and several re-boots and desktop extensions in display settings. I'm getting 9200PPD out of it right now. Maybe better by morning. I will say that I am impressed by the small heat output from Antec 500-D power supply. What a bargain that thing is @ 45.00.:D Well, off to bed now...:toast:

Hey guys, decided to get myself and my girlfriend into some Folding action :) We both have our laptops folding (CPU client) non stop and I run the CPU + GPU client on my main rig when I'm not busy (gaming etc). Usernames are Jmatt110 (me) and stephdon (hers).

Just a pic of FahMon, does this all look good to you or is something not running as well as it could? This is on my main rig with both clients running.



Thanks, Jmatt

OK i honestly don't think i have done my F@H installations correct. I can't find the log files to put into FahMon anywhere!

Can i just uninstall them and start again - will i lose my points?

little help?

EDIT: damn hidden folders - i hate you so much!

Well, I've been slow to get the 4th rig online. I thought I was having a PCI-E conflict, but it turns out to be a bad graphics card. Brand new EVGA 9600GSO 384mb single slot cooler. When it entereds 3D mode, the GPU temps ramp up to over 70c instantly and crashes. I replaced the thermal grease with no improvement. I keep getting "unstable machine" on stock clocks. Had to underclock & monitor temps with GPU-z to keep it from crashing. Tried it in 3 rigs and got the same results no matter what slot it was in. Currently it's generating 3300PPD (normally 4900PPD) and I'm gonna RMA it. Ordered a replacement card already and should have the rig fully online by Friday PM.

Some more folding power on line now. I installed a GTX260 in my main rig. It is overclocked to 756 on the core, 1512 on the shaders, and 2500 on the ram. I ran it overnight last night and with the fan at 60% it is sitting about 61C on the core. Not bad.

I am looking at FaHMon and it is telling me 5457 PPD which seems a little low to me. My 8800GT 1GB @ 740/1850/2100 would range from 4800-5200 PPD so I was expecting more like 6000-7000. Or is it just that my GPU is working on one of those huge, low ppd units right now? Project 5013 (R6, C10, G67) 480 points.

I checked the log file and it seems to be churning through the units pretty consistently in 2 hours 5 minutes.

Does this sound about right for you other GTX260 folders?

Check with Kursah, as I believe he was getting 6700+ PPD overclocked.
