How long does it take to fold the 10 wu's and start receiving bonus points?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just wondering how long it takes to start recieving the bonus ppd? I've been folding for the past 2 days 24/7 on my sig rig and followed the smp guide exactly. HFM says I've only completed a few WU's over 2 days. I feel like its going to take a week of 24/7 folding to get 10 WU's done. Is this normal, am I doing something wrong? My processor is pretty fast so I find that strange.

If you are doing BIGADV then yea it will take a while. Most of those BIGADV take just under a day.

I don't have BIGADV set up though. I just have the normal smp client going I believe.

Maybe you are just getting a lot of big units that take a while, 2 days=3 units or 4 or 5?

Yeah I don't know. It says on the client right now that I'm at 310,000 out of 500,000 steps. Is 500,000 steps a BIGADV WU or just a big WU?

I get 500k WU all the time. being that I have a 9550 I would say they are just big WU.

Alright, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong. I just want to be getting the bonus ppd's already lol. For ever 1 WU my CPU finishes, my GPU finishes about 5, its only a gtx260 also.

It varies on each CPU and depending on usage, my q6600 at stock speeds would take a long time since it only finishes 1-2 units a day.
On HFM do not trust the number you see on the initial screen, press Ctrl-H to view the work unit history or you can go to here and type your info.
