How To Get The Most PPD With 3930K?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi there I currently have my 3930K at 4.8ghz and have tried using v7 client and linux vm http://www.linuxforge.net/docs/crunching/fah-vmware.php . With v7 Client I was only getting around 23-25K using all 12 cores. And with the linux vm I'm getting 42k with only using 8 as thats the max linux vm allows. Just wondering if there is any other way to get more ppd with my setup. Thanks

I believe Virtual Box will allow you to use all 12 threads, but I have no experience with it myself. https://www.virtualbox.org/

This is the same distro as your using now, only that it's a VBox image and as robbo2 states you'll need that to get full utilization of all your twelve threads.

Thanks I have set this up now and I'm folding my first bigadv 6903. Just wondering do I have to use all 12 threads to get and do bigadv just because my computer is really choppy now and I can't fold on my gpu now either. I would like to use 10 threads if possible and how would I change that if I can mid work unit. Thanks

I would first recommend trying to lower the priority of your VB process and see if that takes care of your issues.

Open task manager, go to the process tab, sort by CPU usage (click on CPU), then the top process that should be using like 99% will be your VB process, right click on it and go to priority and lower it to below normal, if that still has stuttering then lower it to low. This setting will stay until you close your VB process or shutdown the machine.

Thanks I figured that out but it didn't help. I set the linux vm to use 10 instead of 12 threads do you know if I will still get bigadv. Thanks

Did you set the actual VM or just the folding to 10? You won't get the BA-12 (and hardly any BA-8) if the machine is only set to 10 threads, but you can set the machine to 12 threads and only fold on 10 (-smp 10) which will (be able to) get you all the BAs.
