    <£50 mic recommendations

    I have a very janky setup for discord at the moment. I want to use my headphones (beyerdynamic dt 770 pro) when gaming but it means I need discord to output through the headphones as otherwise I won't hear anything. As I don't have a microphone on my desktop at all I made a second discord account and use that to connect to the same voice channel do some muting (mute all outputs on my ipad and only myself on my pc) and use the second account on my iPad to get audio in. This solution is somewhat manageable but not ideal as I think it uses more internet and my internet can't cope as its rather slow. So I think it's worth buying a mic for my desktop. I can get the modmic 4 at £35 with no mute switch and £50 with a mute switch (I don't think £15 for a mute switch is worthwhile). If anyone has the same headphones and me and has the modmic, is there enough space on the metal band for the magnet pad piece? Are there any alternatives or should I just buy a modmic?
  2. Yeah I just got an email saying that I had completed my first task, thanks for the help :)
  3. Hmm, ok. That would make sense, however it does make it difficult to know if I have set everything up correctly.

    Computation error - Einstein@home

    Oh ok, I've taken off my overclock (+150/+450) and I will see if that is more stable now Edit: it is more stable now, no errors since I removed the overclock
  5. Can't access stats, the error below comes up every time I go to look at it. This has been there for multiple hours.
  6. Some of my einstein@home tasks fail with computation errors. What can I do about this? Gamma Ray pulsar binary search R5 1600, gtx 1060 3gb

    Finale - Folding Month 2018

    117th not bad
  8. Nothing in the log. It was about an hour in and its also a 7min TPF which I believe is quite high from the research I have done so far
  9. @Gorgon Do you know what happened here? It started as an 8 hour ETA, then suddenly it has now decided that it will take 50 mins and 570kPPD. Actually, it has now decided to go back 5% and take 7 hours again. Is that something wrong with the software or do I have some stability issues or something else?
  10. I've managed to get only to 40kPPD with a R5 1600, using 10/12 threads, which is fine but the GPU nets 9x more points. I guess GPUs are far more suitable for the type of workload folding is, so do a much better job of it
  11. I do have it in my bedroom but only around 50% fans and 70°C. I do often put music on and use headphones quite often when gaming so I never hear more than a hum. I understand its an endurance thing but I think I'm only going to fold during winter because its really nice having some extra heat in a victorian house with single glazed windows and only around 15°C during winter.
  12. I have pushed it to 2000MHz on the core since and its still at 70°C. (370kPPD) Fan profile v
  13. I've put it to +75/+500 for now. Making the core 1974MHz, I might take it a bit further, maybe to 2000. At the moment I have the GPU on 350kPPD and the cpu at 50kPPD which isn't bad
  14. I have the power target maxed and a custom fan profile, I just let the turbo boost do the rest which takes it to around 1900MHz core at around 60-70°. It is always at voltage limit when under load so should I increase the core voltage? It's currently running at 330k ppd, on a WU that I started 20 mins ago. I also would have thought CPU folding performance would be better than 18kPPD for 10 threads at 3.4GHz.
  15. Unfortunately I started that one yesterday just before I turned of gpu folding, so the estimated credit is much lower. Also the previous WU showed an estimated credit of 35,000 meaning it was around 300k ppd, but without pausing or slowing it, I only seemed to get 15,000 from it. GPU - core: 1911MHz, memory - 3802MHz, at around 70°C. I have also noticed that gpu voltage is only 1.062 which is lower than I thought it would be, is it normal?.
