It is only a dual core so no you cannot run -bigadv
But smp is better than nothing
No, you need an i7 4/6 core with 8/12 threads to finish the -bigadv work units in the allotted time.
Best to stick to the SMP client.
I'd leave both of those rigs alone as they seem to be doing just fine.
I meant to add that I uploaded my 2nd bigadv WU in the last 3 hours. Unfortunately my next one will be almost two days from now.
So a Q6600 at ~3.6 couldn't even do it?
Unfortunately not ..the deadline for -bigadv work units is 4 days, so you need a 4/6 core CPU with HyperThreading and a little bit of an over-clock to gain the bonus points for them.
But you can still run the SMP client. I run it on my everyday rig, which has a Q9550 at 3.8, and I get ~11,000 PPD from it.
EDIT: For example my i7 920 clocked at 4.2 takes just over 2 days to complete a -bigadv, although I run a GPU client on the same machine, which slows it slightly.
A pair of 9600GSOs and a 8400GS on folder #1. I should have another pair of 9600GSOs (on folder #2) up later today and I periodically let my 990X complete a WU or two, but I can't let it work bigadvs because I need the processing power for other things and they just take too long.
We take what we can get, but that CPU would make a nice addition.
CPU - i7 970
GPU - GTX285, GTX470, and GTX480
After my internet is back up, the following will be running again:
i7-860 @ 4.0Ghz + 2x GTX460
i7-870 @ 3.8Ghz + GTX275/GTX260/8800GTS 512mb
i7-870 @ 3.8Ghz + 2x GTX460
i7-870 @ 3.8Ghz No GPU's
Phenom II x4 B50 @ 3.5Ghz GTX460/GTS450
Phenom 9850BE @ 3.0Ghz GTS250/9800 GT/9600GSO
EDIT:Internet's up and guns are ablazin'!
1. i7 980x
2. i7 2600k
3. 2 gtx 580
4. 2 gtx 460
sounds like we are ready to take the 2nd place spot if all that is going online
i7 2600K @4.5GHZ 2-GTX480's all watercooled
i7 860 @4.0GHZ 1 GTX470, 1 GTX460
i7 870 @ 3.8GHZ 2 GTX460's
i7 870 @ 3.8GHZ 2GTS450's
i7 875K @4.0GHZ 1 GTX480, 1 GTS450
AMD 1090T @ 4.0GHZ 1 GTX460, 1 GTS450
Laptop Quad extreme @ 2.8GHZ 1-460M video
Just started third rig up (i7 920 @ 3.8GHz and 8800 GTX). It's like a freakin foundry in this office...
SB i7 2600k + 2xGTX580s SLI
C2Q Q9550 + 2xGTX285s SLI
Sorry for the hasty setup for my HTPC, but I'm still waiting for my new case to arrive and I heard you guys needed the help ASAP
Updated to 3x9600GSO, 2x8400GS, 2xCPU (non-SMP) clients on my Opty 180 and E1500 (one each, leaving the other core to feed the GPUs).
I love "open air systems"
Thanks, I guess I'll just have to look the door to my office to prevent my 2 yr. old from messing with it
Added my Sempron 140 last night. It only brings ~230 PPD to the game
Whoever said...Somethin is better than nothin...is damn rite!!
My folding arsenal for CC includes
2 X i7920 CPUs (one at 4.2GHz and one at stock)
1 X Phenom 9950 (Stock)
4 x 9800GT OCed Green Edition
2 X 9800GTX OCed
1 X GTX460 OCed
1 X 9600GSO OCed
i7 950 @ 4.0 + GTX 470 @ 800 good for 43K PPD, working on a bigadv right now that will drop around the 14th.
Id hate to see your electric bill.
My folders are now:
2X Xeon X5690 @4,25GHz
2X Xeon X5670 @stock
i7 980X @4,35GHz
i7 970 @4,0GHz
i7 2600K @4,8GHz
i7 860 @3,6GHz
All folding -bigadv
Damn, no wonder we moved into second place...
Only three rigs sit in my house, the rest are elesewhere
