The Misfits - Page 415

Hey MISFITS! Back from my trip to Chicago (tried to sign in there, but my laptop gave me errors when opening this site...so kinda stuck). Had a great time, but good to get back home in my own bed.

We're doing pretty well right now...2nd place about 92k points behind PPD Police. Within striking distance anyway. Everybody seems to be folding VERY consistently. NLM and CB have been dropping bigadvs every other day like clockwork (they are offset, with CB on the odds and NLM on the evens), so that gets us 65-67k ppd right there. It also puts them competitive even with the high overclockers and the hugeadv folders in their respective Cats. Great job, guys!

blazed_1, amang & adcantu, you guys are doing bang up as well, consistent folding is where it's at! adcantu has obviously not only fixed his earlier issue, but upped his game some. blazed_1 and amang are still competing really well in their cats.

What we want is to have it come down to who drops the last huge or bigadv of the month. If we can be there, we can take this. But we can still get really close...there's NO WAY to predict. I finish up a hugeadv, got a bigadv that took 1.5 days, then got another hugeadv (6903). Hugeadvs take either 3 (6903) or 4 (6904) days to fold, bigadvs about 1.5, except for 2684 which takes 2 days. So it ALL depends on what wu we get.

Let's keep it tight enough that a lost hugeadv (on the other side) OR preferable us dropping the last hugeadv can spring us to the top. It's still a horserace, almost 1/2 way through the month. GO MISFITS!

Welcome back!

Unfortunately I had to drop my OC down a little, it just wouldn't hold after switching PSU's. The final straw was when it rebooted 5 min after I left for work and sat there doing nothing for 10 hrs

Ok, so sounds like there's maybe something fishy about the power being fed to it from that Corsair 550. Know it's plenty enuf power...maybe it's just not clean or something. Better consistent that's for sure. It would take a LOT of overclock to make up for 10 hours of no folding. Any way to see about a better PSU for it in the future?
post #4144 of 6206
I actually was planning to get another PSU. The 550W came out of my HTPC/gaming rig and it would like it back. I'd like to get another 750W that's fully modular, if they even make them, so I could do some sleeving and put that in my game rig. That way the 750W I have now can go back to the folding rig.

Also plan on picking up a Rasa kit and see how far she will actually go. Might need some time to properly OC it but if anyone could sub in for cat2 I could do 2500k or AMD.

I've forgotten what "Cat2" comprises of, and can't be bothered to go searching - esp as Z isn't around to make changes..

Can't remember whether I'd mentioned it already, but I'm thinking about getting some new tubing for my RASA loop, and then (at the same time as replacing them) also move WKS04 under the other desk - where it isn't restricted due to limited airflow...

Here's "Desk1" in the office/study, where WKS04 sits:

http://www.nude-lewd-man.co.uk/WC/PSU/IMAG0060.jpg
http://www.nude-lewd-man.co.uk/WC/PSU/IMAG0061.jpg

I thought I had a pic or three that I could use to show WKS02 and the other schtuffs under the other desk, but I can't find it now.....but I have found this clip:


That's Tia on her lappy, and you can see "Desk1" in the background, and at the end she is leaning on "Desk2"....

Wait, is that how you normaly have the RAD? Needs more airflow than having the case block most of it.

Under desk one would be better me thinks... Just need to move sime of those old relics..

I believe this is cat2;
• 1x GTS 450
• 1x Quad core CPU
• 1x nVidia 200 series
• 1x 9800GX2

• 2x nVidia 8/9 series above 800 in that series (GT240s are also eligible)

• 3x 8/9 series below 800 in that series (GT220s are also eligible)
• 3x Dual core CPUs

Will most likely be a month or 2 before I can go water though so plenty of time to figure something out.

I've modifried it a lil bit since that pic was taken - by shoving the two panels that I removed to fit the res/pump underneath...but there is still *VERY* limited airflow; there's ~5 mm under the rad, and only a couple of cm above the fans before the drawer...
(I'll take some pics in a sec)

It would be difficult to get anything under Desk1, as the case for WKS01 is in the Desk1 (or at least on top of part of the base)...and I don't think that the case could hold the weight of the rest of the desk...

I'm tempted to take my 275 to work and put it in WORK_PC as it is currently completely idle (WKS02 hasn't even been powered up for about 3 months) and could be earning some points....just as long as it then doesn't go the way of the GT430 that I had in the original WORKPC machine, where, when I had a CPU fan failure/issue, the whole machine was taken away (and disappeared before I could get the GPU back out of it) and the HDD was just swapped to a dual-core P.O.S. instead...the orignal was a quad....

Even if I don't take the 275 in to work, if there are 2 other people who can Fold on dual core machines, then that should be possible..........








Anyway, got to have the follow-up appointment with the surgeon to find out what the situation is....

I could also fold on dual core, E8400 + Maximus II Formula.

k4 and I were folding for Cat 2 until you came onboard, blazed_1. I was on my 9800GTX and he on 1 core of his 9800GX2. But he's sold that now, so not sure. I do have the 9800GTX still, I also have a 9800GX2, but that's in my 980X and I'd rather not fold on it now. But sure we can work something out to cover, we all have so much equipment around. I could even put the other 9800GTX in a system I currently have a 580 in and fold on that. Would probably give just under 12k ppd between the two.

Yeah, NLM, you REALLY need to get more airflow to that radiator. It's just pulling the hot air around and around in there! At least tilt it on it's side a little....it's like blowing air through a straw when you've got your thumb over the other end...

Ok MISFITS...we're still in 2nd place, but just by 27k pnts. Keep'em folding!
amang, you seem to be dropping back a little bit. Everything ok there? adcantu, you're holding steady now, in 8th in your cat but not losing any ground now. blazed_1, you're only 2k pnts from first in Cat 2 now, good foldign! I really like the design NLM and CB have going on the team stats....it's puuurrrttyy!
