FINALLY got it all running

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well, I started a few weeks back on the laptop. Good ol Asus G60vx. It gets a whopping 4k PPD (E8435, GTX 260m).

Now I have my system built and just got it set up properly a few ago. Turns out this machine, according to HFM, will churn out roughly 40k PPD.

ATM, my cards are running at temps of 55 and 48 (PC sitting on an AC vent atm lol) after folding for about an hour. The CPU is at 60, which makes me think I need to put a fan on that HS, since it is so warm already (folding for about 45m now).

I guess this is one way to test your system stability on the OC's, eh? lol.

I have a few spare servers sitting in my basement I REALLY need to sell. If I can't, I just may fire them up. I wouldn't get much out of them, probably an addition 15k-20k PPD from the 3 of them.

Anyway, glad to finally have joined in.

LOL....I know how badly you need it for more PPD. You are already lacking in that area.......(yes, sarcasm)

I love that pic. I saw it online and thought, that is just perfect.
And before you ask, yes it can play Crysis.....

Welcome schlunky, you're CPU is doing great at only 60C no worries there, do you have any of your components (CPU or GPUs) overclocked yet? We (read: I. Deeeeebs would do it but you can't afford his solution) can help you with that if you need, it's kinda our thing around here (OCN).

Many thanks. I do actually.
My CPU is OC'd to 4.2ghz. I just put the fan on it as after a few hrs of folding with the air turned off in the house, it crept up to about 76c. That was passive, but still more than I like. So I put a quiet fan on there and it now stays at or below 62 (cheap fan).

My cards are the nvidia reference models that come at 822/1645/2000. I took the coolers off to put on some IC7 and put on the EVGA back plates. I overclocked them to 900/1800/2100 (simple OC on stock volts) and the temps still went down 12c from where they were stock.
I have yet to see the cards go over 68c while folding.

I likely will OC further, but I take it at baby steps lol. Temps permitting, I think I will end up at 4.5ghz on the CPU and 950/1900(more if possible)/2250 on the cards.

We will just have to see where I can get all of them with acceptable temps when I have time.

I am already thinking, "maybe I could get another PC together cheap just to fold....."

Not sure what the wife would think about that after I just spent 1600 on this one and we have baby #3 coming in about a month lol.

Thanks again!
