Rampage III Gene Over Clocked CPU Folding

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The ASUS Rampage III Extreme is a small form factor Micro ATX motherboard that packs a powerful punch! This board begs to ask how well a small form factor system can fold and if its smaller size will yield more energy efficiency.
Currently all the hardware is running on their original stock coolers with no hardware or firmware modifications, My primary goal is system reliability and maximum uptime.
I will be looking at system power consumption and estimated expense. I wonder if the boards smaller size will yield more energy efficiency?

The client I prefer is the Folding@home Tracker V2 AVAILABLE HERE WITH INSTALL GUIDE
System Specifications

Stock980-1.jpg
ASUS GTX 580 Graphics Card $499.00
ASUS Rampage III Gene Motherboard $229.00
Intel Core i7-980X Extreme edition 3.33GHZ Processor $899.00
Corsair Dominator GTX3 3x2GB 2000MHZ C7 Triple Channel Memory $183.00
Western Digital Velociraptor 300GB Hard Drive $100.00
Antec 1200W TPQ Power Supply $200.00
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Service Pack 1 $100.00
Base System Cost: $2210.00
(22.22c Ambient Air Temperature)
Processor: Intel Core i7-980X
Core Voltage: 1.144V
Temperature: 27c
Core Speed: 3.33GHz
Uncore Speed: 2670MHz
Base Clock Speed: 133MHz
Quick Path Interconnect Speed: 3200MHz
System Memory: 3x Corsair Dominator GTX 4 2533MHz 2GB
Voltage: 1.66V
Temperature 25c
Speed: 1333MHz
Divider "Ratio": 2:10
Timings: CL9-9-9-24 74 1T
AC Power Consumption: 160Watts = 46¢ per day
"Points per day Per Watt": 145
"Points per day Per Dollar": 16.4





Stock Core i7-980X CPU 36341.2 Points Per Day

stock980ppd.jpg
Intel Core i7-980X Folding@home
CPU Core Voltage: 1.184V
Core Temperature 50*c,
Core Speed: 3471.3MHz *Turbo mode enabled.
AC Power Consumption: 250Watts = 72¢ per day
"Points per day Per Watt": 145
"Points per day Per Dollar": 16.4

If you are like most people I know you may just leave your PC running 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, and if you Fold@home like most people I know the former statement is also most likely true smile.gif
referencing the above statement helps to conclude Folding@home without overclocking will cost about 26¢ per day, $7.80 per month, and about $95.00 per year smile.gif





4GHz i7-980X 61485.5 points per day

Processor: Intel Core i7-980X
Core Voltage: 1.360V
Temperature: 75c
Core Speed: 4.0128GHz
Uncore Speed: 2889.2MHz
Base Clock Speed: 160.5MHz
Quick Path Interconnect Speed: 2889.3MHz

System Memory: 3x Corsair Dominator GTX 4 2533MHz 2GB
Voltage: 1.66V
Speed: 963MHz
Divider "Ratio": 2:12
Timings: CL9-9-9-28 98 2T.
AC Power Consumption: 327 Watts = 94¢ per day
"Points per day Per Watt": 188
"Points per day Per Dollar": 27.8

Folding@home with overclocking will cost about 48¢ per day, $14.4 per month, and about $175 per year smile.gif
The additional power draw caused by overclocking will effectively increase the expense of Folding by 30% or about 22¢ per day
by leveraging the hidden potential within the ASUS Rampage III Gene users will be able to increase Folding productivity nearly 70%, while observing only a marginal 30% increase in electrical expense.
The ASUS Rampage III Extreme is ideal MATX motherboard for small, powerful, and extensible Folding systems.


Rampage III Gene OverClocking to be Continued

Later I will examine what it takes to be an Extreme Folder, future tests will consist of Chilled liquid, Vapor Phase Change Refrigeration, even Liquid Nitrogen Cooling with the goal of squeezing the most power out of a single processor system.
This thread will focus on the ASUS Rampage III Gene motherboard and its ability to overclock the mighty Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition CPU
