Hey there, figured I'll introduce myself. Just started folding a couple days ago on my HTPC that I have here at school, and it's pulling me roughly 2k to 2.5k a day, It's a 960T at stock speed and with a stock cooler, and I'm running the SMP client on Ubuntu, do does this PPD sound about right? I've not found much about folding on the 960T before since it seems like most are used for benching. If anyone could throw a little advice etc in that's be awesome. I'm looking to change my cpu cooler to a better air one and overclock once get some spare cash, but that's hard to come by in college.

Anyway, looking forward to eventually inching my way to my postbiit and hopefully contributing much more in the future! smile.gif

Welome to the Team! Hm, that sounds a bit low, but maybe not at stock speeds if its being used. Which version of the SMP client are you running v6? or v7?

I'm running F@H 6, and I also tried installing HFM to monitor my speeds using derick's guide but couldn't get it set right (I'm a Linux noob). Just been using the terminal to see my progress. I do also use the computer sometimes but maybe a couple hours a day at most, I mostly use my laptop so it's pretty much dedicated to folding.

If your laptop has windows on it, try installing HFM in Windows, then just share your log folder on the linux box. Then you can just add the path to the share into HFM.

Is that going to up my PPD or anything though? Because I don't really mind using terminal to view my log.

Naw, it won't, it just lets you monitor it. Which version of ubuntu are you on? There may be some tweaks that could help optimize your PPD. BFS scheduler seems to help.

Hey Dorm,

Your PPD does seem kinda low, as I have a dual core laptop running an Athlon II P320 that generates about the same PPD using v7 in Ubuntu 10.10

You should maybe try switching to v7, I noticed much better PPD going from v6 to v7 on my 2500K

Is 10.10 better for folding? If so, I'll get that and F@H 7 and see how that effects things.

I just got the newest version, so 12.10.


Thanks both for the advice smile.gif
