Unusually low PPD?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have two rigs plugging away for OCN. I wanna make sure I am running at great efficiency for the CC. However, I think I might be doing something wrong. My PPD is my daily avg right? It says my avg is like 7k. That seems low considering I have my main rig in sig doing -smp 2, and 2 x FAHcore 16 on my 6950s. Then my second rig doing -smp 5 on phenom x 6 and regular core on 5830 GPU all going 24/7. What could be wrong here? I am new to folding so am I just not getting bonus points or something?

Where are you getting that 7k PPD average from?
If its EOC it takes a week to even out if your PPD is steady.

Getting it from here:http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...hp?s=&u=551560
Also, I understand it will level out after a week with exact PPD but still shouldn't I be putting up more points daily? I just now today reached 50k

Your i5 2500k on its own should be able to produce 15k PPD (IIRC)
That is with bonuses of course and all 4 cores and no ATI GPUs running.

It looks to me like your ATI cards are dragging the SMP client way down, maybe you should try folding just 1 GPU instead of 2 and use SMP 3 for now.

15k PPD jeez. Im willing to shut them both down just to see what it can do. I was under the impression that two 6950s would kill a 2500k in PPD. So I will give it a go. Two other questions then:

1. On my phenom x 6 rig should I also shut down the GPU on it to let all six cores go?

2. Would a clock of 4.2GHz be sufficient on that 2500k?

Thanx for your help lil'chris, outstanding mod IMO.

EDIT: Noob alert...what is IIRC?

Actually it can get more than 15k PPD if you go for that sweet spot of 5ghz like most people do or go bigadv for a nice 25k+ PPD.

1. What GPUs do you have on your x6?
2. No go higher cause I want more PPD! >.<



IIRC = If I remember correctly
Also I am not a mod.

The GPU on my x6 is just a single HD 5830, so turn it off? or is -smp 5 good enough?

That sucks that my 6950s are a waste looks like they are strictly for gaming...

I would just fold SMP 6.

They are not a waste, its just I think you need to optimize the setup and core 16 is fresh and needs to mature some more.
Since I do not have any ATI cards its hard for me to tell you a good way to optimize it, so many configurations out there. >.<

Will do then! thanks a bunch. Guess I will have a nice new 5830 to sell in the market to some lucky person....once I am allowed that is.

we have almost the same rigs, but you have one more 6950.

I can pull a more then 20k ppd if I let it ran all day. I'm running SMP3 and oc'd 6950. The solo 6950 pulls the 1835credit WU in about 5 hrs so that about 8-9k alone for that card.
