Having issues with all cores folding...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my OC'd 5830 is folding away and reporting just fine, up to 20% all ready, so I set up F@H for my oc'd i7, which i followed the tutorial and am running with -smp 8 flag, and the affinity reg key..

But, a check at my sys resources says only processor 5 is at 98%, and ive tried everything and searched..

How come 7 of my cores are being neglected?

I'm no expert, but did you restart after config? I had a bunch of problems until I did...

It sounds like you may have gotten a standard WU. What WU is it 6071 etc.

Download HFM (guide), and it will tell you what type of units you are getting with more info.

If that is a standard unit, then you might as well go into your work folder and delete the contents and restart the client with the shortcut that has the -smp flag added.

Must have been a standard w/u, I did that and now all 8 cores are screaming away at 95%, hfm is estimating 22000w/u daily for the i7 @ 4200mhz, and 4600w/u daily for the hd5830 @ 1050mhz...

SWEET!

Now, to see if I can find a way to o/c my poweredge server... it has dual 2.4 ghz processors with hyperthreading, and it was going wayyy slow, so there must be a way to crank it up...

Glad you got it working.
Let us know how that server does at folding.

Ok, just found out why the server was doing so poorly, it was in general mode, not smp. Deleted the w/u's, and fixed the flag (i didnt put in " " ) and now all 4 cores are at 100%.

Now, I got my gpu, and 12 cores folding away!

Now to try to find some BSEL socket 604 mods so I can get it running a little faster... if i could get that 2.4ghz xeon up to 3.0, id be a happy camper.

Awesome.
Make sure you do it right, last thing you need is to loose that server.

I am too much of a chicken to do the BSEL mod to my q6600 rig, just waiting for the right moment to upgrade the mobo.

Awesome!!! I love hearing about multi-cpu servers folding. Mmmm drooool.

Which server? I've been trying to keep an eye out for used ones. Until there are >8 threads total, it's not worth the hassle. Especially considering a 2600k gets ~50k ppd.

its an old dell power edge 2650.

Socket 603
dual processor intel xeon prestonia 2.4ghz, 400mhz fsb, 24x multiplier, 100mhz bus speed.

Tried BSEL mod to 133mhz/533fsb, but it did absolutely nothing (insulate/remove bsel1) so, i dont know what else to try, in the past that always worked. Maybe my motherboard is capped at 400mhz fsb.

It isnt fast, has a slightly higher cpu score then a 2.2ghz i3 or a fast mobile core2duo. But, it does have hyper threading.

Other stats : 4gb eec ddr ram, pci-x (useless), and the ability to deafen you.

I soldered in some resisters in line with the 2 cpu fans, and shrouded them, so their quieter now and more efficient.
