Gpu Folding questions?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently started using my computer for folding. i have had problems myself with folding on the gpu and cpu is this normal? Also my friend who is on my team has tried and tried and has not been able to get his gpu to fold and he is thinking about quitting because i am folding on my gpu and there is no chance of him catching up to me just using his cpu? Lastly what is a good ppd? i get from 18000-19000 and have been overclocking my gpu in my garage (to keep it cooler) and it seems to suck when i get it past 800mhz like my ppd dropped from 19600 (at 750Mhz) to 10600?

P.S. sorry for any noob statements made above.

If your PPD dropped from 19K to 10K on that 470 I would guess it's because your OC is unstable and it has dropped down to it's low power 3d clocks of 405MHz. Go check on it through either MSI afterburner or GPU-z or something to confirm and then back off of the OC by about 15MHz at a time until you reattain stability. You mention you have problems folding on the CPU and GPU and ask if they are normal but give no information as to what problems you are having so I can't help there. What GPU is your friend using and what sort of problems is he having? The more information you can give us about things you want help with the better we can help you.

when i try to fold on my gpu and my cpu at the same time my comp sits for a while then starts but then it just stops working or restarts the work package. my friend is using a xfx 6870 1 gig and that one tries to start then removes itself from the queue.

That problem you are experiencing just further points to an unstable OC on your GPU, you need to either lower the clocks, raise the voltage, or both until you reattain stability. Test stability using OCCT's GPU test with error checking on.

Your friend just needs to use this guide, and follow the post for enabling advanced work units for AMD GPUs.
