Awesome! I'm on the list now! Never turning my computer off again. Better get the old Athlon 1200 folding too. It's otherwise useless right now

Nice one Cuzza.

Update for me! Just upped the clocks on my e8400 to 4.14ghz, and installed the affinity changer. Now the SMP client is munching through WU's like there's no tomorow! Does approx 2800ppd without the gpu client running. More in the CPU yet, i'm on 1.3v atm, don't wanna go past 1.35v if possible. 4.25-4.3ghz should be possible with <1.4v

Does it show the new core in the work log when you start GPU2?

+1 on the 8800GTS. I just ordered a re-certified EVGA 8800GTS G92 off the Egg today for $109.00 + free shipping. Here comes another 6700PPD:rockout:

On another note, I have found a home for my rigs. At work we have a server room that has ample space/electrical and plenty of air conditioning to battle the heat of these cards. I got the OK to set up 4 rigs there and the elec is free!:D Only downside is I must provide UPS back-up for the rigs in case of power failure. This may cost a little bit of cash considering the amp draw of 4 rigs. I will work on it and post pics when set-up.
Congrats Buck!!!

Do you already have the hardware for the new rigs?

Let us know!

Cheers

Bow, I bet you can get more out of that card. Un-link the core/shaders and go for the following:

Core - 725mhz
Shaders - 1750mhz(or more)
Memory - 875mhz

Try that and let me know.:toast:
Ok all set , seems to be running good, keep ya posted:)

Hello Team.

I need to clear out one doubt.

FahMon total PPD for me is saying 20K+ for all my rigs. 6 video cards + 2 CPU folding. Running this way already for 4 days 24/7.

Now, why my "Stats Sig Images" 24Hr avg. is only 13K?

Your average is all points over 7 days. If you just added additional cards, you will see it jump towards the end of the 7 day period. It takes a week to get back up to your average when you shut anything down.

Is it possible to read the PPD from a PS3 over the network? In addition, when using remote access (windows remote access) to access my folding computer, it makes the video card clients stop after they send their results. When I open up the computer, it is at the login screen saying "logged in." I am presuming that because I am remote accessing, it is stopping the GPU clients. Is there a workaround for this? Or should I just use a different remote access program? Thanks,

William

Hey Everyone,

Well, I decided to start folding for TPU. I'm still a bit new to this, so I have a few questions of what might be going on to my compy.

Right now I am jus folding with my 8800 GTX. I've noticed though that whenever it is running, my mouse is very glitchy. And my Core 3 is at 100% on my CPU usage. I thought it wuld just use my GPU to process this, and not the CPU.

Any ideas?

Thanks TPU, and glad to finally be helping out for a better cause.

-Andrew

(nut shell specs:

8800 GTX, 680i Mobo, q6600 @ 2.4, 4bg ram, Windows XP Pro )

Hey, thanks for contributing :)

The old GPU core used to be quite heavily cpu dependant, so it looks like you've got the old core. If you close the gpu client, the go to c:\documents and settings\username\application data\folding@home\folding@home-gpu\ and delete fahcore_11, it will automatically download the newer core next time you run it. You should have very little cpu usage, and it will complete the WU's faster.

Hope this helps ;)

I'm Happy Now!! (finally)

Hello TPU F@H Team!!

If you follow the posts will know that I was frustrated with 2 video cards Palit 9800GT recently bought. So I did return the cards yesterday and got 2 beauties:

Asus EN9800GT ULTIMATE/HTDP/512M

It's a 9800GT OC but with 128 shaders instead of 112 (default 9800GT).

So I went from 4.4K PPD (Palit) to 6.5K PPD each with the new cards (ASUS).

That's my new Total PPD now: :rockout: 26.8K :rockout:



BE HAPPY
KEEP FOLDING!

Glad to be helping. I tried to delete the file, but still same CPU usage, and glitchy mouse. Would having 2.8gb of Ram viable to windows be doing this by chance?

I have no clue what that means, but nice work!

I, on the other hand, installed Ubuntu on my Athlon 1200 machine today and (after much cocking about, since I know jack s**t about Linux) got it folding.

It is, however, a bit slow. First work unit is going to take 11 days.

Hey Cuzza!

PPD means Points Per Day. You can download "FahMon" Folding@Home Monitor at:

http://www.fahmon.net/download.html

With fahmon you'll be able to check your projects performance.

Oh, I know those cards. They are 8800GTS's in disguise!!!!! Great card by the way.

On another note, looky at what I found this morning @ CompUSA. 2 of the venerable XFX 8800GS's for 45.99 each after rebate! I'm not crazy about the cooler design, but it's a solid performer nonetheless. Max 2 cards per rebate/household or I would have bought all 4 that they had:shadedshu. I getting closer to setting up the 4xGPU rig that I have had my eye on since beginning folding. I hope to have it up and running by early November. That will put my total count to 12 GPU and 4 SMP clients. PPD should end up around 65K:rockout: Keep folding and let's make TPU a contender!!!!!

CRAZY BUCK!!!

Tell me one thing ...do you still have free PCI-E slots? or are you getting new mobos?

What a deal! 45 bucks for a 88hundred card? Great success! buying 2 ...even better! hehe

About statistics, That pic is from witch web page? The only one I check (daily of course) is http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com. And by the way, looking at the "Top 20 Producers" I'm now after you buddy... hehehe

But don't get me wrong. Don't wanna put you under pressure. Keep some bucks to spend with your girlfriend/wife. Video cards are still expensive and if you keep buying 3 or 4 per month, it will add-on!

Just kidding my friend! KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC WORK :toast:

I have 4 8800GS's(2-XFX & 2-EVGA) just sittin here. I'm waiting for a Foxconn S-939 SLI (had to use up my old CPU's) that should be here Tuesday. I also have an MSI K9A2 Platinum(4 PCI-E:D) in my cart @ Newegg. You could say I'm having a slot shortage. I welcome the healthy competition that you bring, Mmaakk. It's good for folding and great for TPU!!!!

I was surfing @ the EVGA F@H forum and found other Statistics site:

http://hardfolding.com/fh_stats/index.php?pz=101&tnum=50711

Pretty nice! There are a lot of options on the left side panel like graphs, attack, records...

Please give me your opinion.

Thanks

I submitted a result on Infrared's GPU2 Performance thread...I hope that thread comes back alive soon, I thought it was a damn good idea!
