Jammy. I am still crunching a few. One of my machines is on a 250000 step killer.

Dont recognise some usernames on the teampage.

Most weekends I have my spare pc running folding@home and yacy
Unfortunately it's only using the cpu rather than a gpu as the nvidia graphics card in the machine doesn't support cuda.

At the moment not a lot (doesn't have enough contributers to challenge) . But as week by week goes by I find google less and less useful (as a quick url finder its fine but for any real "searching" or web-surfing most or the returns are paid for content and consumer sites; shops, review sites etc. )
I also like the idea of a community led search engine.

You're now tempting me to put it back on.

Stopped after new GPU kept crashing, hopefully as drivers have had a couple of updates will be more stable

I wouldn't mind knowing what specs your system(s) are...

I've been running 6 threads out of the 8 pretty much constantly for the past week or two...

Just started one on my Quadro600 GPU... 17hrs to go... :gulp:

Running all eight threads on an i7 overclocked to 4.2Ghz (this is my main desktop PC), also running on an old AMD Phenom II X6 server.

I don't get particularly big work units on the server but the i7 does some big jobs, for instance it's currently chewing through one with 2.5million steps. The estimated credit is about 13500.

Both are running version 7.1.52 of the client, type SMP and max packet size BIG

For some reason, my daily average has dropped loads since tuesday/wednesday... and I can't work out why...

I only seem to get 0.5 and 0.25million work units, until I chucked one on the GPU and got 50million...

I'm using the SMP console client for the i7, the 'big' option (but I understand that's not the actual size of the units, just the memory usage), and the GPU console client for the GPU...

I'm not using the GPU client as I haven't got a decent graphics card, thinking of building a new PC sometime next year so may well drop a decent card in.

Just checked the stats and noticed you've 'screamed' up the standings, along with Doobit, Sparks and nobillgates.

I know, points coming in thick and fast over this weekend... 92units yesterday, and 50odd today... they must have been small ones mind...

Got a new i3 at home this weekend, tempted to have it running on this one too... hehe

Ah yes, I (Doobit) put it on a spare machine that's not currently doing anything and my points have rocketed. I used to run it just on my TV machine but the folding client is always getting shut down so my 2 year old can watch cars (he is obsessed ... so proud!!!!). Now it's running 24/7 on a spare box I'm racing along. Every time I check my points recently Sparks and I have swapped positions although I think he is getting the better of me. Makes you quite competitive this folding lark smile

Just put this on my office computer, and joined the PH team - hope that's OK! It's just a standard desktop, with no graphics card, so I don't suppose I'll be racing up the leaderboard, but it all helps.

Hi Guys,

I'm cheating a bit.

I have
PS3 (14-20 hours a day)
old laptop at home 24x7
6 cores on an idle work poweredge server (linux) 24x7
an now my new i7 work laptop running most of the time.

Would use my macbook too, but it runs at 109 degrees on the CPU, and I don't think that is healthy.

Interested in any tweeks for the i7, as some of you seem to be able to keep in front of all the above with only a couple of clients.
Just running the standard client (smp for the i7 and the GPU)

I also noticed that things slowed down a lot for a few days I had one work unit take 3 days on the i7, when it usually does them in about half a day.

I suspect I will drop back, once (if?) work catch up with me

Happy folding

Sparks

Cheating? A bit? hehe

I'm using HWInfo to keep an eye on my temps, 69degC for the CPU and 89degC for the GPU... Can't be good for them to be up there constantly, Shirley?

I have two 120mm 3-speed case fans, they don't make any difference to either of those temps (I know they're case fans, but I expected them to make a couple of degrees difference at least.)

No tweaks for me, not even overclocking, although I am now using all 8 threads so 100% usage on both the CPU and GPU.

Still the same? Mine tend to vary from just over 1min upto 5mins per %.

Same here, i'm glad it's not my leccy bill! hehe

I think I may have made a tweak to the client when I set it up, I'll have another look and see if I can work out what I changed.

This happens to me, sometimes it's the size of the job but other times there doesn't appear to be a reason for it. My jobs tend to take anything from 90 minutes upto 30 hours, on the i7 box.
