I have been folding on a 670 before but I can't stand the coil whine. I have a question: sometimes my PPD is between 10-13k for days and now and then it goes as high as 17k PPD? How is this possible.

Thanks, any folding tips are appreciated and keep folding everyone!


Welcome to the team!  For folding on the 3570k, the variation in PPD could different Work Units, SMP (CPU) Work Units often vary in PPD, and also it can fluctuate depending on what else you are doing on the PC.  Especially if you're looking at the folding@home 'Advanced Control''s guesstimate on PPD, that can vary wildly.

 

As far as tips for folding SMP, one is obvious, the higher the OC, the higher the PPD generally.  The other is OS, Windows isn't as efficient for folding vs Linux, I personally have seen a 10-15k PPD boost from going native Linux on a highly OC'd 3770k.  What some guys do that can't run native Linux, is run a VM with Linux installed in Windows, which still actually boosts PPD a bit.

The increase may be dude to bonus points due to speed of completion for having a passkey, etc.

I'm hitting 9-10k only, and I have to put through 1.4 or 1.5V for a 4.2 on my 6 cores.... You don't have THAT bad of a clocker... *DISCLAIMER* My board only has 4+1 phase and.... sigh.

But my cpu costs twice as much as yours tongue.gif So you can't complain. And you can't really compare the voltages between the 3570k and fx 6200. Will I see much benefit from overclocking and would it be worth the extra power consumption and temps?

So can I request WU that go better with my processor? I have heard of the infamous WU 17's that allow for massive points? I don't really care about points but I do care about helping science. Do more points actually represent more useful work for the project always or is it just a psychological boost to keep people folding.

Does the PPD scale proportionally with the OC?

Yes I have been thinking of running Linux and I have tried installing Ubuntu but I couldn't get it to work because I have windows 8 and a motherboard with UEFI frown.gif ? Anyway around this?

Thanks.

You should see a noticeable increase in PPD going from the stock 3.5ghz (or whatever it is, I've never had a 3570k) up to 4.4ghz.  The PPD is calculated based of your Time Per Frame, TPF, the lower the TPF the higher the bonus when you complete the Work Unit, and thus the higher the calculated PPD.  Whether the increase in PPD is worth it, that is subjective, I would generally say yes though.

You can't really request specific Work Units, they just get assigned from the Assignment Server when the client makes a request.  The core 17 ones are for GPUs, and still in beta right now, so that is why they only see one, or two core 17 WU at a time.  With SMP Work Units there are several, a lot of them, I don't know the exact count, but far more than GPUs, so it's a bit more random on which Work Units you get.

 

Yes.

 

Not that I know of if you still want to keep EFI boot with Win8 (which of course you do because its awesome).  I can look more into that, I haven't had the need for dual boot.

I fold 24/7 on the crappiest VPS ever, got it for free though so I figured I'd put it to work. It has two cores and combined it pulls 100PPD per core and each core will finish 1 WU after 20Days.


To help things along I'm also folding on my "White Lightning" rig and that pulls about 10KPPD but will only fold about 5 hours a day give or take.

Welcome. 

On the "White Lightning" rig, to maximize your PPD while folding, try running the beta core 17 WUs.  That should put your PC closer to 100K vs 10K.

Check this thread out:  http://www.overclock.net/t/1367557/core-17-beta-wu/

Thanks for joining team 37726, and supporting the cause.

I tried this Core 17 thing and it's been sitting here for probably a half hour or so and it just says ETA Unknown and 0.00% done, PPD unknown but it's using most of my GPU. How can i make it work?

Nevermind it just started going, and quick too! Now I see about 61K PPD on my White Lightning rig.

Is there anything I can do for my VPS or my 3570k for more PPD?

Do you have the GPU OC'd?  If so, I would set it back to stock for now.  Try posting in that thread for core 17, more GPU guys are in there, I don't have any GPUs right now, other than my hd5450, LOL.  What does the Log tab contain?  Try posting that in the other thread, it may have some information that would be helpful in determining the issue.

I got it sorted out now, I guess I was just being impatient.

Sweet, glad you got it sorted!

So I was informed that the advanced and web controll estimations of PPD are not really accurate so I went ahead and installed HFM. Now how do I configure this so I can monitor my PPD accurate. Thanks in advance.

Hey anubis, i got a question. i got a 450gts and my 720 x3 and when i just do GPU Folding my ppd is around 13k for the gpu but when i do both smp and gpu it says my gpu ppd is around 5k while my cpu is doing 14k~ are these numbers right?
