Thanks! biggrin.gif

Not sure if I'm folding right, but should be. With the measly sig rig I have, 8k~12k PPD sounds fine? Or should it be reaching higher?rolleyes.gif

Humm, can you fold the beta WU on that 6670?
Also is your card maxing out on gpu usage?

Welcome to all the new members! Glad to have you! biggrin.gif

I think neo might get better PPD from folding just the CPU, core 17 beta WUs or not I don't think that 6670 is doing a whole lot of good and it's certainly taking CPU resources away from the CPU folding. I would try pausing the GPU slot (right click on it and select pause) for a few hours and see if your PPD improves.

That is a very good point. The 6670 probably doesn't have enough juice heh.

I know the 6670 is one of my biggest bottleneck tongue.gif

Pausing a few HOURS you say... I'll try that. (only tried a few minutes before last post and thought there was no improvement.)

As for GPU usage under fold. No, it isn't 99% usage like in games. I wonder....

Thanks everyone! biggrin.gif Going to sleep now so I'll see if PPD improves in the morning when CPU folding is now CPU:6.

EDIT: CPU only folding average PPD is about 10k and a bit more. Looks good. No more GPU folding then. Thanks!

Hi Friends,

 

I'm topet2k12001 (call me topet)...I just started with Folding@Home yesterday. This is a very interesting activity, and that it is driven for a cause is what made me interested. :)

 

I followed the simple steps from the Folding@Home website to install it in Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.04. Smooth sailing so far...I'm on to reading the "Essential Threads" and would like to learn more about this, and perhaps how to optimize/balance usage/performance vs. power consumption (hence = electricity bills). I'm looking at my watt meter (the stuff you plug into a wall) and it reads 390+ Watts, lol...and electricity is not cheap here in the Philippines. :)

 

I have a 2700K which I have recently overclocked to 4.5GHz (new to overclocking as well after more than a year from purchase of this processor), and 2 pieces of AMD HD6970. Any suggestions/tips to balance performance-vs.-power consumption will be greatly appreciated. I have registered my folding activities under the Team Name of Overclock.net...hope I am welcome to join OCN's Folding Team!

Been in the game since CC but never introduced myself so I guess i'll do it now. Only fold on my 7850 because power vs points on the 6300 is way too high rolleyes.gif. Project 8900 made me lower my clocks and slow down so i'm only pulling ~46kPPD vs the ~58K PPD I pulled on 7663 mad.gif

It's about time I jot something down in this thread smile.gif

About me?

Started folding this past CC just because it seemed interesting. Set myself up a few days before the CC started and been folding ever since. About 6.5 million points so far tongue.gif It's quite addicting, bought an i7-3770k to replace my trustworthy i5-2550k hoping to get a boost in PPD. Have a couple machines at my disposal that I've been folding with, but for the most part, I've had 2 i7-3770k's and 1 7870 and 1 670 FTW.

I've actually lost my 670 FTW, the heat of battle lol. No longer folds, continuously throws memory errors and such (i've tried EVERYTHING to fix it) Will pick up a second 670 soon to replace it frown.gif

I don't really know much about the team folding, but just in case anybody needs it, I don't mind helping! (as long as I'm still contributing to OCN)

Ah, perfect timing! Someone with experience to ask. :)

 

I have just finished reading one of the "Essential Threads" (which client is best for me?). Does it still apply at this time/age? In other words, will the latest F@H client suffice (the one from the official website), or do I still need different clients such as "SMP" versus "bigadv", etc.?

 

Also I have read about PPD and how it is more of a "reference point". Does it mean I get to choose which "Project" to contribute/donate for? Is "PPD" the WIIFM (What's In It For Me) factor in making a decision on where to contribute/donate when folding?

 

Thanks in advance!
