Yeah, I'm just saving up right now, need a new case before anything else, then will experiment with getting wet. I just got back from vacation, where I emptied my savings, so I'll probably be a few months before I can do it but I definately want to try it.
Also, btw, I have my rig running Ubuntu native, but in the process I lost the WU (tried copying from 3 different backups), I guess you can't move a WU from one "system" to another. So it uploaded the failed WU and DLed a 6903, it just got the new WU so I'm waiting to see what kind of TPF I get folding in Ubuntu native vs Ubuntu in a VM.
OK, so I have Ubuntu booting from an external HDD to fold in Ubuntu natively, however, I noticed my TPF were actually slower than my VM client. I'm thinking this is due to the slower xfer rate for the USB 2.0, so I have copied the drive to a USB 3.0 drive, have it booted up and running, now I just have to wait to see if that makes any difference??
OK, so I was wrong about the USB 3.0 drive helping. My TPF is the same (~70 min 10 sec) as with the USB 2.0, which is actually about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes slower than my client in VMware. So yet another change, I'm going to -oneunit this client, when it finishes (which SHOULD be about an hour and a half before deadline) and restart my VM client.
Now I have one more question, does anyone know of any way I can decrease my TPF by about a minute or two on the bigbigadv WUs so I can actually finish a 6904 on time? I've tried, unsuccessfully to increase my OC on my processor, I've tried (also with no luck) to OC my RAM, so I'm at a loss right now. After this WU finishes (its a 6903) I'm setting it just to do bigadv WUs, but I would really like to be able to crunch 6903s and 6904s, but if they can't finish in time, there is no point.Edited by WonderMutt - 10/10/11 at 3:49pm
