Are my numbers right?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.
I've got an i3-540 overclocked to 4.2 GHz
And a GTX 260 running at stock
I also run FaH on my PS3
All of these are running 24/7, however I am only getting about 5000-5500 ppd.

Does this sound right?

Thanks!

Seems a bit low between the GPU and CPU. 5k or so PPD should be what the 260 is bringing in roughly. Not sure about the ps3 but I dont think they are as good as they used to be point wise when they first came out.

Make sure you have set up a passkey and are using that for the CPU folding. You can get it by going here: http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py. Once you fold 10 CPU work units you will start getting bonus points which makes up a good part of the points from a CPU

I've been folding for a little while. I wasn't anticipating much from the ps3, but I thought it seemed kind of low with the cpu being overclocked as much as it is and the gtx 260.
This is a fairly recent development. I had to do some tweaking of my oc for stabilization, and before that I was getting about 10-13k ppd.
I have been using the passkey though.

Thanks!

Ya something is probably up. Can you post the PPD for the CPU and GPU separately? Try a program like HFM to monitor the clients. you can find that here: http://code.google.com/p/hfm-net/

I am guessing that something wonky is happening with the CPU because those would the points I would expect to see with the 260 and the ps3

I don't think so but it's pretty simple, you just go to clients, add new client, and then in the log folder location just point it towards the folder where the fah information for that client you want to monitor is. So it should look something like this: "C:\Users\YOURUSERNAMEHERE\AppData\Roaming\Folding@home-gpu\" that would be for the systray GPU client but they should all be in the appdata roaming I think except for the console clients which would be wherever you installed them.

More information like your clients you are using for everything and what specific problem you are running into would help us help you.

We do have a guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/698405/windows-7-complete-hfm-guide

it should be fairly simple once you figure it out. Just click add client and point to the folder where the client keeps the logs

v7 TPF/PPD estimates are usually a bit wrong, at best, and HFM does not yet work with it. The later version is getting better though, but I still don't trust it. To get the best view on performance, look in the log and manually calculate TPF and look up project numbers. For SMP (CPU) WU, look at this calculator: http://www.linuxforge.net/bonuscalc2.php

For GPU, look at what base credit is for the WU (shows up in v7 correctly) and then put in credit and TPF in the below formula:
Code:
p=credit, points
t=time per frame, in seconds
PPD=points per day

(p/t)*864=PPD
