Hello not technically new to OCN but I am to folding.

Was having trouble getting started but got it going now. Thinking of setting up a little folding farm. I have plenty of extra parts from my repair shop shutting down, now they can go to good use.

at rank 4,000 something hope to work up to in the 500 range soon. Great competitions I have noticed and for a great cause, very nice. Hope to put up some good numbers to help us win the chimp!

Hi guys! Started folding a few days back, just completed 11 WU with -smp. Now folding with -bigadv, 2500000 steps!! 1% takes 30mins!

How many points can i get from a WU with -bigadv including bonus?

I Cant wait to get my postbit!

Are you using the v6 client of v7? If you're using v6 try to setup HFM.net so you can see the PPD.

I'm using the SMP client v6. I read somewhere that v7 have some issues with -bigadv? or should i switch to v7 so i could fold on both CPU(with -bigadv?) and GPU?

I'm using FaHMon, PPD showing 17704930!!! way over the 50,000 mark, awesome.

Depends on how fast you finish, but 50k+ is possible.

Since you'd need to give up a whole core to use your GPU (AMD WUs are more efficient than before, but not that efficient yet), I'd recommend staying where you are with all cores on -bigadv.

And Fahmon isn't always accurate... if the box is yellow, it's lying to you.

Thanks. PPD is now 42,xxx(green box). So the efficiency does matter, i'm gonna OC higher then.

I never gave folding a thought till Syrillian made a request. Originally I was just going to build a server that will also fold GPU wise but it looks to be awhile before that'll happen. Reason being is that I have a wife who does opposite of what I tell her (ie don't click that *click*, don't turn off computer, it's updating *turns off via psu*). So I was concerned wife will mess it up (good thing I can "hide" it).

Then I noticed CC is about to start and i wanted to help the team out. I was half asleep last night trying to get it going. I was overwhelmed by so much to learn from the guides and what not that I just went with the v7 one. Still learning though. Looked at the client this morning and had no clue what I'm looking at and how to determine if it's going well.

And I'm anxious to get home and see how my rig is doing. I can see my stats from work but I'm concerned about my rig.

Hey all, just started folding for OCN back in March after i found out about Syr. Currently folding 24/7 on 2x GTS 450s at 900/1800. Glad to be a part of the team!

You can run SMP on 3 cores of your CPU, and run the newer AMD GPU WUs on your 5850. You'd need to use the new client though:
http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...-v7-guide.html

What you'd need to do, is install SMP (post 1), configure to only use 3 cores (post 2; ignore the bit about adding the -bigadv flag, and just change the number of cores being used; ignore the "multiples of 2" warning too ), add a GPU slot (post 3), then enable new WUs on that GPU slot (post 4).

Seems like a lot, but it's actually very straightforward, and you can post here if you have any difficulty.
Alright I'll follow the v7 guide
Folding makes Dirt 2 stutter occasionally at full graphics, not happy.

So the idea is, the GPU needs 1 cpu core to work. So I disable 1 CPU core, thus limiting my CPU's PPD. However, the PPD return on my GPU will be greater than that, thus rendering it useful. Correct? ( I tried to do research before bothering you )

Finally: Is there somewhere I must sign up to be part of the OCN team? (How do I change my name? o.o)

Finally2(Oops ^_^): Typically, how long does a WU take to complete? (955 + 5850).

Finally3: my mind wanders in odd and mysterious places [o.o]. Would -advmethods be better for me ON or OFF?
