[SOLVED] Ubuntu Folding - Help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

I just installed ubuntu on my 2600K dedicated folding rig. I was expecting a decent jump in performance, but instead got a performance reduction.

When I check the cpu info, my overclock doesn't register. It says it is running at 3400mhz. The overclock is set to 4800mhz. What is up with that?

I followed a rather in-depth guide I found on another forum that seemed to work for all those involved there, but is not working for me.

Thanks for any help...

EDIT:

Solved. Linux doesn't like the 'per core' turbo overclocking in the asus efi. Had to set to 'by all cores'.

Thanks for looking.

Speedstep (or whatever it is called for SB) is off? Then you're possibly found that Linux discovered your OC was unstable. I had that happen to me along with it locking up or doing other strange things.

No, speedstep is on. But when it is actually using speedstep, it is clocked at 1.6ghz. No way I am getting 29min frametimes at 1.6ghz. More likely at 3.4ghz...

I tried to search for something equivalent to cpu-z to use in linux, but couldn't find anything suitable. Anyone know of something?

Thanks.

I'm no Ubuntu expert either but I though this was the code to show cpu-speed
Code:
cpu-freq
