Opinion on folding on an ASUS M4A79T Deluxe

post #1 of 13

I know it's not the prettiest looking board, http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...l#post11888078 , but for an x6 and 4 folding cards I could see some pretty good PPD...?

That's a pretty good price, yes?

I'll probably end up getting two single slot 450's...(or just one IF I get a case that can handle a double wide, LOL)

For $20.00 more the MSI will give you room for 4 dual slot GPU's

4+2 power phase on the MSI....not x6 OC friendly, yes? I'd like to run -bigadv on an x6, and I'm understanding that the closer to 4.0 you can get the better...

Not sure an X6 will complete a -bigadv wu if you are running GPU's at the same time.

Good one, but it aint happening with 4 Fermi cards, maybe with GPU2 cards you can do it but it would be really close.
For that much Fermi cards & bigadv you will need i7 4ghz or i7 2600k.

I believe.. I'll have to double check when I get back home but almost certain that's the MB I bought for my dedicated GPU rig.. Can't tell you specifically anything in regards to using it for bigadv with an x6, I just dropped in a x2-550 and use it gpu only. I did unlock the 3rd core and tried to run all the GPU's on one core and smp on the remaining two, PPD for the smp was around 1600 IIRC, and it slowed down the two Fermi's a bit. I can tell you with two GTS450's and two GT240's, it worked out really well which is what I got it for. I will confirm when I get home if that is the exact one I have.

Well, perhaps an x6 folding on 5 cores SMP with one dedicated to GPU's should still be ok, eh? Then when Bulldozer comes out I could probably toss a 1st gen chip on the AM3 board (not so sure about using MSI for that either)
