    Re: Folding @ Home - Wake Up Call

    We seem to have lost a few people and it's having a drastic effect on our overall PPD.
    We've gone down two places in a week from 116 to 118, fortunately there is a bit of a gap between us and the next guys Team Elder Scrolls at 119.
    We need more members. I'd like to break into the top 100 this year![thumbup]

    Re: Folding @ Home - Wake Up Call

    Top 100 for the year!? Well, we need to start getting some serious PPD. The next team that we are going to pass is going to take us a year as it already is!

    Most I might be able to do is add 2 or 3 computers this year, if my network plans can even get rolling, and then I would add maybe 2 low end video cards. But the systems that I am needing to build won't be any power houses. We need a few A_T's on our team folding 24/7.

    Re: Folding @ Home - Wake Up Call

    I had to shut down most of my "farm" at the end on last month sadly.

    Have too much going on with school/work right now to be able to keep it going. Didn't help that I had 3 machines folding in my bedroom either... [wallbash]

    I try to add a few work machines here and there when I know I have them for a few days for burn-in/testing purposes. I only have 1 machine running right now and it only turns in 1 WU per week. Still in the top 20, LOL...

    Interesting.

    F@H on my 6870 runs the GPU 10C cooler than bitmining does. 74c vs 84c

    Re: Folding @ Home - Wake Up Call

    Are you guys using v7 Beta? I seem to be getting about 1000 ppd more on my i7 and i3 with it. Haven't moved my other machines to it as yet. I wish there was a Linux native GPU client though :-/

    As an aside, we have just taken The Motherboards.org Team for position 117! We are slowly moving our way up the list again. There are a whole bunch of teams which we can overtake in a couple of weeks if we keep this pace up, less if we have more machines.

    I must have a soft spot (or be soft in the head) for old team 62. I've flipped my 5850 over to 62.

    Re: Folding @ Home - Wake Up Call

    Now, I am folding some on my two 6870's. They each are maxing a CPU core out. Is there a way to get the CPU usage of a GPU client down?

    Only more cores will help as far as I am aware. :-/

    Re: Folding @ Home - Wake Up Call

    I have been watching my CPU usage a lot today, and it appears that only 1 GPU instance is constantly maxing out a core, while the second GPU instance barely uses any at all. It does from time to time, but it shoots up for a second or so, and then drops back to 0.
