What happens if you still use the a3 core

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Cold weather is here for a few days and I thought this would be a great time to work some WU's. I knew I had not switched all over to the a5 core but I had thought the one I picked to run had been switched. All I get is a3 core work(and no -bigadv a3 core work). This is fine as work is work and if Stanford sends it out it still must need to get done. I leave my window open and all fans are at minimum (just 3 for the rad and one case fan) and I sit at 52c (with an i7-930 at 4.05GHz). It is a bit chilly in my room but that won't last long as another big bad AZ summer is on the way.

On another subject,GPU2 is still with us or am I mistaken? This rigs gpu client would not pick up any work and I have not devoted any time to working things out.I had to actually use my GX2 rig for work other than folding so it is a bit "unconfigured" to run a simple test with it and see if it gets work. I went and looked at EVGA's B-stock and no more good deals on 200-series cards (unless you want a 240) I should have snatched some of those 275's they were selling cheap. It was bad to look there as now I have the SR-2 itch again. If I chose to go that way it would take me a year to get it all together (based on the way money comes to me) but that would be a great choice for my next folding rig that is not so far along that a few changes to accept that big mobo could not be made.

For your first question you might not be running the newest client 6.34?

That is correct, what I found interesting is that you will still get work, just not the work you may be best suited at doing. But Hey,I blaze through this normal smp work and if I want to shut down I only need to wait some hours not days for my work to finish.

I think they only stopped sending bigadv out with that core. SMP still works IIRC.

I will say you are correct Captain as I am getting smp work.

EDIT: I should have titled my post "This is what happens if you still use the a3 core", I am too used to playing Jeporady I guess (making sure my answer is in the form of a question).

Yea I am also on A3 at the moment.
Not doing bigadvs, so didn't see the need to change the client.

I dropped back quite a bit with folding because of the noise and heat in my bedroom but now that I have accidently gotten aquainted again with -smp folding (where I can turn the machine off at night) I think this can work out better. I say some is better than none.

Some people say the noise of the fans and the water gurggling in the tank is soothing but I need it quiet. So that is my plan 12/7 rather than 24/7.
