Optimizing folding 2600K GTX 760

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, on monday i'm going away for two weeks so i won't be using the computer at all. To this day i fold using the V7 client when i'm just surfing the web, at work or at school and so on.

So now that i'm going away i want to use these two weeks the most efficient. So i was thinking if running a VM ubuntu? or even a install of ubuntu? Kinda new to configuring folding stuff. So any tips?

My 2600k is at 4,7 and MSI gaming 760 is 1240mhz at boost clock.

Ive read that ubuntu only supports CPU folding, And with the new QRB i was wondering if its still more efficing only having the 2600k in ubuntu?

If you don't have access to your rig for long periods of time, I would suggest leaving it at stock.
I'd had rigs lock up and there wasn't anything I could do until I got home.
You can fold with NVIDIA cards on linux but I would just leave it folding on windows as the difference is minimal.

The computer has been stable forever. Had the ram die on me while it folded this summer, thats it. Last weekend it folded from thursday to sunday night with 6 threads and the 760 at full blast. And it folds perfectly every night. So i dont think stability would be an issue. But maby using a VM ubuntu for the CPU? I've heard that boost it quite a bit.

Linux works for both CPU and Nvidia folding.

Are you using AB or similar to overclock the 760? You have to flash the OC if you want it in Linux as there is no software to overclock those GPU's.

However, I'd suggest you stick with Windows and just do a VM for the CPU. Make sure to request _17 units on the GPU (client-type=beta) and run 6 CPU threads folding in the VM. I don't know familiar you are with Linux and flashing GPU BIOSes, but it's just a few days away until you leave, so I'd keep it fairly simple. You could of course run the GPU at stock clocks and then run a native Linux install, it would be better than running stock in Windows/VM but probably lower than overclocked in Win/VM.

PS, join team viking in the upcoming FFW (1st-7th). wink.gif
We even have prizes.

Joined the team Viking. I'm have no idea when it comes to flashing bioses, but i have some basic idea of linux. But as you said it would probably be easist to just use VM. And yes i use AB to OC. +50 on the core and +650 on the memory, and a bit more agressive fanprofile. Probably just gonna ramp it up to 100% while im gone, Its still Mad quiet. Abit louder than my noctuas but meh, i'm not at home soo thumb.gif

But VM with 6cores and V7 client. and ive read that the never drivers from NV kills the PPD of 7xx cards? I see people getting 60-70k ppd with only a 760 and i only get about 45-55k with 2600k and 760. Any tips there?smile.gif

A couple things. Memory OC has no effect on ppd and just makes your card run hotter so I would recommend lowering that below stock. As for drivers, Anything below 327 should give you about 65-70k ppd on just your gpu. To get the good work units on your gpu use:
Code:
client-type=beta

And for the CPU use:
Code:
client-type=advanced
