post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi i am running a amd phenom x4 955 at 3.7 (1.4v) 4gb of g skill ripjaws running at 1333mhz timings of 8-8-8-27, and a xfx 5850 oc to 775 core and 1125 memory.

Any suggestions on how to pick up my Points per day, ive been running dnect but have found out that its taking longer and not rewarding the same points it did 2 months ago

run milkyway, your 5850 should complete a gpu work unit between 90 seconds and 120 seconds depending on core OC only memory OC does nothing but heat up card, watch the network and make sure milkyway can keep you in gpu wu if you run out you will need to run Dnetc those are the two best point producing projects, welcome to OCN

good luck,

P.S. join the team bro

will a overclocked 5850 with core and mem do better at dnetc, and rack up the points per day over overclocked memory with milkyway?

A 5850 @ 900 core running milkyway@home will earn you around 200K ppd on average - but that's only when the project doesn't run out of work or go down or if you can keep your BOINC client's cache full.

I much prefer DNETC due to milkyway@home's caching problems - in DNETC, your 5850 will work 24/7 and rarely ever stop due to running out of WU or whatever.

The results below are what I achieved with a single 5850:

A 5850 @ 900 core running DNETC will earn you around 265K ppd on average.
A 5850 @ 950 core running DNETC will earn you around 300K ppd on average.
A 5850 @ 1000 core running DNETC will earn you around 350K ppd on average.

Crossfire 5850 @ 900 core running DNETC will earn you around 570K ppd on average.
Crossfire 5850 @ 950 core running DNETC will earn you around 570K ppd on average.

I'll hopefully test trifire or quadfire when I can find a quadfire mobo for a reasonable price

For future GPU ppd stats in BOINC, check the BOINC GPU Database - there are a few entries in different projects for 5850's at different speeds

nice reply un-nefer, also does it matter what speed the memory runs at, or just oc the core?

You should downclock your memory as much as you can while retaining system stability - BOINC applications generally don't utilise the memory in a way that requires high clock speeds there. This will help you manage the temperatures and will allow you to reach a higher core clock.

DNETC offers the most points, but I think the science undertaken by the Milkyway@Home project is much more interesting, and that's where I like to dedicate most of my system resources. However, they occasionally have problems with server downtime, whereas DNETC is a very solid project that has work available almost all the time - makes it a great backup project.

Unfortunately the system currently employed by the BOINC manager to prioritise projects is broken, so having DNETC and MW attached to a host will result in DNETC being active most of the time. Luckily this is being fixed in the next release of the BOINC manager (currently in Beta, but it shouldn't be long now)

I cannot seem to find DNETC. I have run out of work for the milkyway project and was wanting to add something else to my list.

Hey chas you have to type in dnetc.net at the bottom of the search bar between the slant bars when you are adding projects, if you goto dnetc.com they will tell you how to add them but as I stated its that easy.


Great info un-nefer I am disputing the amount of points at all cores....

unless your cpu is stated then the coreclock cycle is unknown so we need cpu in ghz and gpu core in ghz

great info jazznaz, ive got a reference xfx 5850 (pretty sure that you can really get control of the voltage) running at 810/1000 going to do some testing this weekend to see what i can actually manage
