In my /folding folder in Linux, I find FAHlog.txt, which has the most recent history (including WU Project numbers... mine are mostly 2605's), and FAHlog-Prev.txt which has a bunch of older WUs (few days ago in my case).

Those two files should give you an idea of which WU's you've been running lately and which ones screw up.

Hmm...could it be a communication error? Maybe your NIC is acting up? Packet loss and such can be disguised under normal TCP communication (web browsing and such), as when a packet is lost, it normally just gets resent. The Stanford routers or folding servers might be a bit more sensitive to it than normal, or perhaps your NIC driver isn't up to snuff.

You might try removing your NIC driver and reinstalling it. Even trying a different slot on your motherboard, if it's not integrated. If that doesn't work and you happen to have another card laying around, try swapping it out. There are a lot of things that can monkey with your communication stack over time without your even realizing it.

Hope you get it figured out.

Seems like project # 2609 is a buggy one. (I usually get 2605's).

Today I received a 2609, and it crapped out immediately (error 0x79). Then it tried it again, which was received with error 0x12.

I deleted the queue.dat file, the FahCore_a1.exe (or whichever .exe is created by that specific WU) and a bunch of files in the Work folder (all those created at the time the new WU started).

Then, restarted the client (./fah6 -smp), and it loaded up a fresh WU... this time project 2605 fortunately, and all is well.

Does anyone have any proven evidence of the performance gain from an actual Conroe chip with the 4mb L2 cache versus an Allendale with only 2mb on certain WUs?

I'm thinking of selling my E6400 for an E6600, but would like to justify the reason. I've been searching and can't find anything conclusive.

Thanks guys!

Only anecdotal (that those with a higher cache chip fold faster in general). Not sure if the cache is the reason or the higher average overclock.

Also, if you upgrade, I'd highly recommend an E6750. Your P5B Deluxe should be able to pull off a nice FSB and you'll probably get a better overclock than with an E6600.

Do a search for 2608s, and you can see how Allendales suffer with those. Typical Conroes chug through then in 10-12 minutes per percent while Allendales run in excess of 20 minutes at similar clock speeds.

Whether or not that's justification (or an excuse ) to upgrade is up to you. Yes, a Conroe will chug through that and similar WUs more quickly than an Allendale, but that particular subset of WUs is fairly small. All in all, you'd be much better off dropping an inexpensive quad in that mobo (I have a Q6600 and a X3210 running on a P5B Deluxe without any problems). Your output would jump significantly without burning a whole lot of additional power (at least when comparing one quad system to two dual core systems). But like with evaluating the feasibility of upgrading from an Allendale to a Conroe, you'd have to decide if going from an Allendale to a Kentsfield would be worth the cost.

tsk tsk... a Quad We'll be disqualified as a team (only 3 cores max per member, and 8 total for the team).

2609 and 2605 are the only ones showing. One of them went trough, likely the 05.
I'm trying the delete process you suggested Chozart and we'll see where it goes.

No go, "could not write local file''

Thanks for the knowledge Taeric. I'll be contemplating what I need to upgrade to.

And you did a full re-install, including a brand new virtual machine and a complete new installation of Linux?
