What should I expect to be seeing PPD wise for a 2500k @ 4.7GHz and a GTX 580 @ 960MHz?

Also, I noticed that if I do change the default GPU usage to something less than 100 (85 for example) the setting will stay active. The problem is that when the GPU is data crunching, it's not topping out at 85% usage... it's cycling from 99 down to 0 over and over again. I did alter my fan profile a bit to cut down on noise but I'd really like to control the heat if I'm going to be running 24/7.

Just tested to dial down my 460 (GPU3) and 8800GTS (GPU2), both using the standard no nonsense cmd client, to 75%. The 460 gets pretty much pegged@85% while the 8800GTS is still@100%.

Going 100% 24/7 you should see 18-20k from your 580, and perhaps 15-25k on your 2500K depending on WU. However if you wanna maximize your folding I'd recommend going this route: http://www.linuxforge.net/docs/crunching/fah-vmware.php for your CPU and use tray/cmd client with the -advmethods flag added for your GPU. If you follow that link there will be a short guide, at the web setup choose 4 cores and Sandy Bridge for Kernel (see the attached pic at the bottom), you can choose to do advmethods on the CPU too if you wish.

The reason for this is 1) Running CPU folding in Linux (even in a VM) is more efficient than doing it through Windows and 2) The current advanced WU on Fermi uses very little CPU which really help your CPU folding, and on higher end cards (like your 580) there will be a small PPD boost too. You will however most likely have to back down your clock a fair bit, as these WU is prone to show instability of OC and runs ~10C hotter (which, given that you wanna limit your current GPU usage, you might not wanna do).

But if you're going to run 24/7 this is really worth the extra work, especially for the CPU. Maybe running only the CPU 24/7 works best for you.

You guys are pretty much dead on PPD wise. I'm currently seeing about 22k on the i5 and about 19.5k on the 580.

When does the next competition start and how do I join a team?

PM zodac and let her know that you are interested in joining a team for the Team Competition. I'm not sure if there are any spots open right now, but she'll be able to let you know when there are and get you set up.

Also, take a look at THIS LINK, z has a form there you can fill out to be put on a team once a spot is available. Good luck! thumb.gif

EDIT: You'll probably want to take a look at the Team Competition (TC) Rules, which can be found HERE.

Also, each month there is a Fold-a-Thon, that is a site wide "competition" and there is a schedule of those HERE.

Thanks for all of the valuable info! I've already been contacted by Z and should know if there is an open spot by the weekend.

Right on, let me know what you hear, I always like seeing who the new TC members are! Good Luck!

Also, just so you know, you'll have to get that 2500k running in Linux doing -bigadv if you want to be competitive. Let me know if you need help doing this, I've done it a few times. Or were you planning on competing with the 580?

Well, I did find an opening for my 580... problem is... the dang thing is so loud and warm. My wife isn't too keen on hearing the rush of air all night long. Not to mention, if I close the door... it's too hot for humans in the office! It's too bad too, that thing is a point hog! I would invest in an aftermarket cooler, however, I'm not sure how long I'll own a Fermi with Kepler right around the corner.

Right now, I'm running the SMP client through FAH Tracker with -bigadv. I would be willing to switch over to a Linux client if it would provide an advantage... I will certainly need a little help though!

I am willing to run my 2500k 24/7 365, so if a spot opens up plerase let me know.

I understand how your wife feels, when I kick on my 2 GTX460s it's enough to heat my basement to a stuffy 75F! If I shut them down, my 5 systems keep it at 70F!

Yeah, if you need any help setting up the 2500k to do hugeadv let me know, I'd be happy to help! thumb.gif

By unchecking -advmethods for my GPU, I noticed a huge drop in temp as well as noise. Not sure what this is doing to my point production... but at least I can fold without a hairdryer running in my office 24/7.

-advmethods will generate more points for you, but I've had the same issue.
With -advmethods checked I've even had PSU shut downs on two seperate PCs and it causes massive heat generation.
I got about a 10 - 12% increase in points by using it on my 560Ti but had to turn it's cooling fan to max, open the PC case and blow an outside fan on it to keep it running.
Without WC I don't think it is nearly worth the extra power. 2cents.gif

-advmethods on your GPU are more intense and definitely make it run hotter but they use less CPU, so you will most likely get less PPD on both with regular GPU work units
