Normal vs. bigadv folding

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Simple question: Which is better?

I have my 2600k running at 4.6GHz and I would like to start getting everything going, but if -bigadv isn't going to net me many more points I'd rather not bother with VMware/Linux. Not my favorite thing to do.

Thanks in advance!

Cool. Do you happen to have any figures at hand?

Also, if all cores stay ~70C is that bad? :| I originally had started folding at 4.8GHz and they were sitting around 75C each...so I lowered the OC to 4.6 and now they're at 62-70C...think that's gonna threaten my processor's life?

30-35k for normal, 45-50k for -bigadv, IIRC.

Not meaning to thread jack but, How long does it normally take for a -bigadv WU to complete? A friend of mine is letting me use his i7 920 and I'm going to be folding on it for the week he's gone

folding regular bigadv units with your 2600K will give you an aproximate PPD of 50K, as you can check here.

According to Intel the max recommended temp for those chips is 72.6C, so at 70 you are well within spec. If it will suck the life out of your chip to run 24/7 at that clock, well, maybe a little, but i can't tell for sure what will be its new lifespan. It will reduce the chips OC ability at some point in the future, and you may have to lower clocks or increase voltages to remain stable at X speed, but won't prevent you from running at stock for quite some time i guess.

Yup; make sure to use VMplayer v3.0.0.

Really depends a lot on the overclock too. Is it at standard clocks or more?
