PPD Issue? Maybe?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay, I'm very new to folding, I started 2 days ago with my i5-2500k @ 4.5Ghz and my Asus GTX680 4GB @ 1228Mhz. Now from the way it looks I'm supposed to get 97k PPD according to HFM.net and the FAH program for my 680, and like 9k for my 2500k. When I look at the Stanford site I'm only getting like 6k points for 8900s on my 680. Now from the way I understood it PPD means Points Per Day? Is this an issue, or does the Stanford site award points differently than the programs? Here's my profile on Stanford http://fah-web2.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=userpage&username=Asiqduah. Thanks for the help in advance!

PS: The program says 28229 credit at the moment for a 8900, but again I'm only getting like 6k.

Since you're new, you're probably not getting bonus points yet. you gotta get thru 10 WUs to enable bonus points. It's best to turn off the client-type advanced flag til you get 10 WUs done then enable it again.

Edit: enable the client type advanced flag after starting on your 10th WU for both the cpu and gpu slots so the next WU on both will be the advanced type.

Eh I'll have 10 WU's finished in about an hour since I've finished 9 so far, so I'm not going to worry about switching the flags. Is it that much of a difference though? I mean 6k is almost 1/5 of the PPD it states on the programs. So my question is if it's normal, or if I might need to make some changes. or if the passkey just makes that much of a difference.

Edit: Here's a pic of my FAHcontrol

You definitely need a passkey. It is a requirement to enable the bonus points. I believe you need 10 WUs under your passkey to enable the bonus points as well.

Edit: Double checked the Stanford website. To enable the bonus points, you have to complete 10 WUs under a passkey. So, if you haven't already got one, get one. Then get your 10 WUs and finally enable your advanced flag and enjoy the bonus points.

It's because your passkeys are so new, once you complete some more work units you'll start getting the bonus points as SirIsaacNewton stated.
