o/ Hi to all o//

Interested in participating in some folding action this time around. thumb.gif My rig is in my sig and i think i can do 16h+ a day of folding, my gaming addiction will get in the way of the remaining hours, as i'm at work or sleeping i can let my rig crunching away, unless there is a pwr spike and my house electrical board trips it's safety and shuts down my electricity. redface.gif

I'm a folding "virgin"and a hardware "hermit" (not very comfortable with software i never seen being used, i'm a hardware tec by collage degree, helpdesk tec by profession), so i will surely ask for some help here wink.gif

Some few questions right off the bat. What sort of stress/heat does folding cause? mainly CPU or GPU? Both? In average what has been the spike in heat from CPU/GPU? For example my rig running C.o.D: IW in 1920x1080 all settings in ultra GPU (oc'ed or not) will do an average of 64ºc/ 68ºc and CPU 66ºc/ 70ºc should i expect an increase of over 12ºc in either of them? or higher then that?

Thx in advanced for any reply. Going to look up what to download to start [email protected] when i'm @home (@work as i write this) biggrin.gif

Here is a guide to help setup the client.
https://www.overclock.net/t/1340606/guide-simple-v7-guide-for-windows-gpu-cpu/0_30

Some of the CPU units use AVX instructions which can be demanding on the CPU. And FAH will use your GPU at near max GPU utilization. Typically FAH stable is a bit less than gaming stable as there is no room for artifacts in the calculations like there can be on the screen in a game.

Good to see another folder.

Hello and welcome! biggrin.gif

mmonnin posted a good guide to get you started. As for your questions....

What sort of stress/heat does folding cause?
Folding is considered to be very intensive on your hardware. Reason is because it runs at nearly 100% load for a long period of time. Folding is also more prone to failure due to unstable OCs. Gaming for example can utilize more aggressive OCs than folding because if a GPU encounters an error, the game will sometimes just display a graphical glitch or artifact and keep on going. Folding is a simulation of proteins which takes a lot of numbers. An error resulting in a wrong number will cause your core to crash and lose the work you've already done. Expect temps approximating typical stress testing for CPU/GPU. As long as your hardware is stable though, its perfectly safe.

mainly CPU or GPU? Both?
Depends on your client type that your running. GPUs (especially Nvidia) are much more efficient in terms of points than CPUs. GPU clients require at least one free core of CPU to run properly.

In average what has been the spike in heat from CPU/GPU?
If using the GPU client you can expect temperatures comparable to running a modern game with unlocked frame rate. Heaven/Valley benchmark is a good indicator of temps. If your looking for max OC on Nvidia, OC using Heaven/Valley until it fails, then back the core off 20Mhz and it should be folding stable. CPU temps (if using all cores) are indicative of Prime95 temps.

@mmonnin and @ Klue22 thx for the quick reply thumb.gif

Never did test my Skylake with prime95 because of many others having problems with it. My current OC has been stable for over 1 year and was confirmed "stable" after running O.C.C.T. for over 2h and x264 and x265 for 8h, system memory OC is low and handled Pi 200%+ coverage fine. As to GPU OC i rarely run it as all my current games run great without it but for folding i will be turning it on and it's a fairly low OC too (my GPU ASIC is trash) and i figure i won't have problems there unless afterburner app fails and resets the OC back down. Thinking of flashing GPU BIOS soon when warranty finishes.

I may have to tune down the CPU OC a bit, upping Voltages is a no no as it's already near max V for this CPU when at 100% and heats up quite hard to around 85ºc and sometimes over that when pushing it hard, but i guess i will know after a few try's of folding. wink.gif

I will be looking at OP for signing in to the folding war biggrin.gif

Awesome! It's always great to have fresh meat....Err new blood....Uh...Welcome!

Anyway...CPUs don't fold well with prime numbers of threads specified. So if you intend to fold on your whole system then your limited to 75% capacity since you need to have one core available for the GPU client. That should cut down on the heat.

How's everyone doing? Looks like we are going to be a small team this year but lets shoot for the highest PPD per person. boxing3.gif

I'm finally getting round to building my home server. Going to lob in the 1060 and the 1050Ti, not sure if the 500W PSU will keep up with both the folding and the encoding I'll be doing on it.

Video cards owned:
1x Titan XP (2016)
1x GTX 1080
1x GTX 1070
1x GTX 1060
1x GTA 1050Ti
2x GTX 980Ti Strix
1x GTX 780Ti

I'm here and alright.

I hope we pull good numbers. Just like every FFW, i'm giving it my all.

Nice! I need to finish my new home server as well. I literally have all the components needed except for an 1155 CPU. tongue.gif

And maybe a new case...But it's amazing the amount of hardware you can scrounge up after years in the hobby.

Ready to fold on an R9 380 and a 750 Ti. They are aged cards, but still do quite well in today's gaming. I have been able to get around 250k PPD with this combo based on January's fold-a-thon event. thumb.gif
