A-Z Guide to setting up Folding@Home - Page 8

It wasn't a joke. Your CPU isn't fast enough to complete them in time. The deadlines for bigadv range from about 2.4 days to 5.6 days depending on the work unit.

At 4.4 GHz and 1600 Mhz RAM you can finish a 6901 with a few hours to spare if you just let it fold for those few days. If you regularly game or don't let it fold 24/7 it won't finish in time. I think I was able to do a 6903 at 4.4 but it was really close, even some light internet browsing and it wouldn't have finished. 6904's are out of the question even at 4.7 for me. Hope that helps.

Also you would need to be in Linux and have a core hack running to even be sent a bigadv.

He can't complete a 8101 regardless of overclcok, and until it's been proven that you can't get them with only a 12 core hack then I can't recommend bigadv to single CPU users. Not to mention that if he can't complete a 6904 then he can't run a 12 core hack even if it didn't get 8101s.

I forgot the 8101s got released. I have been running a 12 core hack for about a month and a half now and have only gotten 6901s and 6903s. Ill be interested to see how I can do on a 8101.

Well if a 3960X at 5.1GHz is barely finishing them, I'll give you two guesses how a 4.4 2500k is going to do on them. rolleyes.gif

Im going to be optimistic, my little 2500K is kinda like Thomas the tank engine. wink.gif

Looks like my bigadv run is coming to an end. I would love to do a 4P rig but the power bill alone would add up over time let alone the hardware.

You can be optimistic as much as you'd like to be.... up until you get your first 8101, which you won't be able to complete, at that point you need to switch back to SMP to ensure you do not continue getting WUs that you can't complete.

What power are you using now folding?
I will bet, even guarantee, PPWatt is much better with a 4P. wink.gif

It was a joke, hence the thomas the tank engine reference and the smiley.

Yeah but the initial outlay of cash for the equipment and price per KWh here in Chicago is horrible. It comes to ~17 cents per KWh. The 4P rig would about 3 times my normal power bill for just the rig, not counting any additional cooling needed.

I don't know about 3 times the power draw, they only use about 600W i thought, your current rig is pulling more about 400W folding on CPU and GPU.
