How do I optimize my system?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm new to folding...
I was wondering what I can do to optimize my system. Saw somewhere that some 570's can hit up to 40k PPD... Seeing as the 660 Ti is faster than the 570, how do I do this? I also have 2 660 Ti's with an FX-8350 at 4.8ghz.

This is my daily rig so I don't want to install a new OS.

Any help is greatly appreciated biggrin.gif

The 660's are actually slower then the 570's in terms of folding. The new kelper architecture of the 6xx series cards is just not optimized for folding like the older fermi cards.

My advice would be to fold on you cpu in a linux virtual machine using this guide http://www.overclock.net/t/1284915/how-to-set-up-ubuntu-folding-v6-34-video-series-in-a-virtual-machine-or-native but use the v7 client http://www.overclock.net/t/1306284/ubuntu-easy-install-client-v7 instead of the v6 mentioned in the guide. Then fold on you 660's in the windows v7 client without any flags so you get the older core 15 units.

Would that be for 32 or 64? I'm guessing 64 because my win7 is 64.

Does it need to be the 10.10? I can't find a secure dl site.

Depending on how familiar you are with linux, I think you may want to optimize windows first. You will get a mixed bag of work units, and the overhead of the vm software running my make the install pointless. What type of ppd are you getting out of your system in windows. Reason i say this, during the chimp challange we saaw a few guys trying this with set ups similar to yours. The AMD chips don't seem to do well in this config. From what i've seen

Also, How is your client set up now? how many core on the cpu fold?
