Been looking to get into folding for awhile and finally built a 3930k folding rig. Can't wait for the foldathon next week!biggrin.gif

I suppose I'll welcome you too even though I've already recruited you. tongue.gif

Welcome to OCN folding, hope you enjoy the foldathon. smile.gif

Hey guys!!!!!! Ive just finished putting my 4p togethor and got her folding!!!!thumb.gif Its a Supermicro H8QGL-IF-O board with 32 gbs of ddr3 ribjaw 1600 ram and 4 Opteron 6212 running at 2.9ghz. Also went with 4 H100i coolers on this rig. Came out pretty sweet. Ill post pics if ya want. Anyway just wanted to say hi and hope to see you guys towards the top of the charts soon.

Cant beat 32 Cores running at 2.9ghz doing work!!!!!!

Yikes what a machine!
post #2374 of 3400
Probably not the right place to ask. Firstly completed my first work unit.
I have three 7970’s and a 3770 K @ 5ghz. When I only fold my max gpu usage is 88 % . Is this normal ?
Im using f@h v 7.2.9 and HFM.NET v 0.9.1.
Where can I look for info on tweaking performance ?

Welcome to Folding!

What AMD driver version are you using? Some AMD GPU drivers are known to only utilize the GPU to around 30-60% but you are much higher than that.

AMD GPU folding will require pretty much a full CPU core due to OpenCL. So you would need to dedicate 3 or 4 CPU cores to run those GPUs. My first guess is that the SMP unit is taking away from the cycles that the CPU needs to feed the GPUs, so they aren't running at 100% utilization. The default setup that 7.2.9 isn't smart enough to know that when there is an AMD GPU that the SMP WU will need to run at #Cores - 1 or #Cores - 3 in your case. (The default config is changing in the upcoming releases of v7)

What I could to make sure that the GPUs can run at 100% is to run just 1 of them at a time and check utilization with no SMP WU. Once you know that the drivers and everything are ok then experiment on whether to run SMP 4 or 5 to be able to keep max GPU utilization.

Welcome to OCN folding! You'll be looking down on us from the top in no time. I'd love to see pics.

I figure you might be interested in dominating a little folding competition we have coming up here at OCN called the Foldathon. Foldathons are a monthly two day long event where every OCN folder tries to get the absolute most folding points out of their machines that they can in 48 hours, with random prize drawings for participation. In addition to the random prize draws for participating you also can be entered into another drawing for a OCN Ducky keyboard if it's your first foldathon and another member referred you to the foldathon (like me for example biggrin.gif), and the number of people in this drawing is not very big at all. If you'd like to find more a little more information then the foldathon thread for this month's (which starts this Monday) can be found here, here is a direct link to sign up (note you must have completed one work unit for team #37726 OCN to sign up), and I would very much appreciate it if you listed me as your referrer.

Let me know if you have any questions or need help setting anything up, and thank you for contributing your 4P to OCN folding. smile.gif

Hey do you know if we have a "post pics of your 4p" type of thread here? I looked but closest I found was other's build logs and derick's guide.

Judging by overall PPD numbers there are 14 4p systems folding for OCN
