[Ubuntu] Setting up big-bigadv (P6903) for dedicated 2600k - Page 41

Of course, this could be specific to my system so YMMV

I'm not sure if anyone else has done much comparison between Ubuntu versions, if someone really wanted to get into testing a whole bunch of distro's I'd be willing to bet there are even more suitable OS's than Ubuntu. With unfamiliar OS's and only CLI on many, I'm probably not the best to take on that mission.
Along these lines, I'm thinking of building a new 2600k system and just using my 2500k as a dedicated folding box, if I do this, will I see a big ppd difference if I take Win7 off and run Ubuntu native (as opposed to in VMware)?

Not a big change I'd reckon but there would probably be an increase and if it's dedicated (CPU)folding rig there's no reason to keep using VM inside Winbloes, so changing over to native is what you'd wanna do.

And about testing different distros there's something that I have thought I'd do but never got around to it, time and noobnes is what's stopping me mostly. But hopefully I have some time soon.

Time seems to be at fault for a lot of things.

no! build the 2600k, yes, but make THAT the dedicated folder!

That was my original plan, but lets be honest here, if I built a 2600k system could I really keep my hands off of it to let it fold 24/7 without interruption? No...no I couldn't. Figure a stable 4.5 - 4.7 OC on 8 threads with 12 GB of ram?? How could I leave that alone!? Given I don't do a lot on my computer outside of folding that is intensive, but I can't wait to see how quick the video rendering is!!

You could do what I did. I have a 2600k for steam and surfing the web, a 2600k for video rendering and a 2600k for folding.

I like the way you think 0bit.

If I could afford it, I'd do hugeadvs on the 3x 2600ks, 2x 2500k and the x6. But I is poor and California electricity is expensive.

Don't know if I could go that far, but I could dump this lousy 2500k () and buy 2 2600Ks, one for this set up and fold it 24/7 and one for what will be my primary setup...As it stands now, this (SigRig) being my primary system it sees about 22-23 hours per day folding, but is not dedicated. Maybe I will drop a 2600K in it when I make it a dedicated folding box and sell off my 2500K...I don't know, have to see how money is rolling.
