I Need a Mentor!!

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Can I get a Jedi Master, that folds for 37726, to hold my hand for a couple of days answer a few of my questions in PM's.

I just need to be able to follow one persons good advice. Apparently I'm getting confused on several aspects.

I would have asked Boxxy but you know..........

Lets start with my simple questions. Is it beneficial to have older PC's not doing anything fold. (not worried about power consumption at the moment). In-particular P4's with about a gig of ram.

Eh. I had a 3.06Ghz Northwood P4 fold... And I was only getting about 150PPD from it. But that's a S478 P4. Now if it's a S775 P4, then you will get better than that. Z folded with a S775 P4 for the longest time. Not really beneficial at all if it's a S478.

Pentium 4's hardly give any points. Sure, it will help, but the low amount of points vs power consumption isn't worth the time.

Personally, I'd sell them and then invest in a low end PC with a folding GPU, or, if they have PCIE slots, don't fold SMP (On the CPU), and put in a decent folding card to suit your budget (8800GT/GTX260/GTS450, whatever you can afford). That'll make it much more worthwhile than folding on the P4 itself.

Nope, was a Celeron D, Dual Core I think. Most of his points were from his 9800GT anyhow.

LOL, hold up with other recommendations for a sec. I have 30ish Dell 280. among several dinosaur servers. Just questioning if they were worth it.

Next Topic. Video Cards I have 2x 7800 gt's a 7900 gt 2x 6600 gt's , 7300 gs and an 4670 laying around not in use and all work. Are these card worth messing with ?


I have 7 Pc's folding atm that are all multi core but I have individual questions on them as well

Taking a look at Dell 280's. It seems that they are S478 P4's. Power consumption wise, they aren't. But 30x100 PPD ~3000PPD. Not really worth it, but I can't say no if you want to fold with them.

As for the video cards, I don't even know. They aren't even in the GPU database to give you a PPD rating on them.

& what other questions?

Damn I really wanted to use those 280's for something I guess I will take them to the recyclers.

The GPU's are old. What list are you talking about?

Other question deal with My i7, i3, Am3, and 939 machine. I want to tweak them a bit better. My i7 needs to be dealt with first its getting damn hot, and its at stock speeds

Wait. Could you tell me what processors are in the 280's? It seems there was some with S478 and S775. If they have S775 they could be of use.

The list I am talking about is the GPU Database.

Tweaking as in OC?
But as for the i7. What kind of temps are you getting? Not sure how good your CPU cooler is.
