Note to self....
Make sure the water pump is plugged in before trying to run the machine.
happy birthday to me cleaned out all the rigs, just need to grab the fans now for each rig. Prolly gonna use the HSF that i won in the last giveaway on the i5 2400, the 2 80mm arent cutting it even in April
Happy birthday Alien!!!!!! Hope your having a good day brother!
Yeah that make make a good day end badly.
Happy belated. Celebrate my birthday this month, too. April FTW
That's why they call me Slim Shady... I'm back... I'm Back...
Don't all get too exited
Anyhoo yeah I'm back and I've got a little i7 4770K / 780Ti action going on now, got my WCG back up and running this week. (Not seeing those juicy GPU units at the moment? Was exited to see the 780 chew them up but so far nothing)
For those of you following my exploits ( lol yeah, because you are all just on the edge of your seats aren't ya to escape Africa, I'm now up and running in the UK, Greater Manchester - working - but differently open to other options. Not that there is anything wrong with what I'm doing now, but I really do have a lot more technical ability than is being put to use at the moment, or in the foreseeable future as its a very financial type group I'm with at the moment.
Its all reports and report databases... I actually sort of ENJOY some physical doing sometimes and there just isn't any...
BUT so far it got me a 4770, and now its folding for the team, and if anyone on the team is in Greater Manchester and is looking for IT type staff who support projects like this - drop me a msg
So to sum it up, Hello, Good to be back
Welcome back! There are no GPU WUs for WCG ATM.
your 4770k should do great for crunching and if your interested in folding, your 780 Ti would be excellent/one of the best cards for that
Pulled the 7970 and the H220 cooler out of my 2nd FX-8350 rig and installed a Silverstone TD-02 AIO with push-pull fans. Crunching now- full load @44C Going to run it in Win7 for a day or two, try some overclocking, and get it crunching with Ubuntu.
The 7970 and H220 are going into the Z68/i3 rig so it can fold full time
FYI- we have a planning thread going for our upcoming May Challenge:
How is it folding with a 7970 and an i3?
cpu doesn't matter too much for folding- the 7970's ppd should be unchanged at around 100k+
The 8350 on Linux should get at least a 25% boost in WCG ppd
I thought AMD didn't scale as well on linux as intel did. My 2500k appears to get about 30% more better ppd per linux.
On a side not, I must say again that a 25% boost is couple generation jump in performance. I wish windows could have that too.
Sure be nice to see some of you guys on the folding side. Im back crunching now that Buck is back to folding. We are 29th in the world and just have about 25 active folders. If we could pick up some of you guys it would be a great help. Since you cant use gpus here atm bring em over. Im at 18 cores and 24 threads atm. Working on more.
+1 if you can assist please consider doing so
You can put up pretty good ppd with a GTX 560 and up (NVidia) or a 7770 and up (Radeon).
- 7970- 100k ppd
- 7870- 50k ppd
- 7770- 25k ppd
*need to give up one core per gpu for best folding output.
I tried on my laptop, a few months ago. All it did was SLOW EVERYTHING down. So, until the day I have a place for my desktops to run, I can't contribute to folding. Sorry. I along with this entire Team appreciates your Crunching with us. If I could, I would Fold with you guys. Until then, I shall Crunch!!
I see a lot of 7 series and some 290s in your system rigs that can put out some serious ppd in Folding. If you like pie some of you guys could be getting some on Folding side and again we would welcome the help.
Got some lime pie that will be up for grabs for a while until I decide my next adventure.
I will make an earnest effort shortly to assist, at least try it out again.
At the moment, my keyboard is broken so I can't do much of anything in my main rig right now; it just sits and crunches. But I hope to maybe try out on the other one later in the week.
I'll probably be pm'ing you and/or Norton for help in setting up.
At the least, I think I can make a 7770 available, and maybe I can swing a 290 here and there.
Noooo T don't leave us.
That would be awesome manofthem that 290 should put out mucho ppd. Norton would know better than me on the 7770. All I know is that my 2- 7950 put out over 200k ppd. Im guessing that 290 would do at least 140k ppd alone both prolly 170-180k. Just get ready to gain weight from all that pie!!!
Keep an eye on the challenge thread- there will be extra folks competing for Pie pretty soon I think
Double post but worth it (see link)
I'm not leaving. I have four rigs that I've been crunching with (a 4930K, a 3930K and two dual 1366 Xeons). I sold the 3930K and I'm trying to decide what to replace it with. I've got three or four or five options I'm playing with in my head. While that's going on, I expect my inconsistent output to be maxing out around 32K. Today's pie for me was that will all four rigs, which proves my point about inconsistency.
My goal is to not have to run my main rig anymore, since it's a huge power-hungry beast.
