for pascal and turing, i've found that all my cards (with the exception of my laptop's gpu) will settle at about 2GHz OK when folding. my 2080ti can do 2085mhz but it is a binned chip.

 

these are my long-term FAH stable clocks - 


2080ti - 2085mhz core, 14ghz mem (lightning z)
1080ti - 2025mhz core, 11ghz mem (gaming x trio)
1070ti1 - 2012mhz core, 8ghz mem (msi titanium)
1070ti2 - 2025mhz core, 8ghz mem (ftw2)

games aren't as sensitive to erroring as FAH and other compute workloads are. for example - my 1080ti will play elite and run benchmarks all day at a certain setting but for FAH i have to turn it down or it will fail work units

Also the errors in folding will compound over tint, as each frame is a child of the one that preceded it. So if you make even just a 0.1% error every frame, you'll be massively out by the end. Rendering the entire simulation scientifically useless

Black, 1070ti x2, 280w

Spoiler

I decided to let ITNOS run the 1070ti's at 60% power instead of 50% to see what the difference would be.... (also they're now forced to p0 states but I'm not sure if that's doing anything)

 

1070ti's 60% Power, roughly 320w from the wall (same as 1070ti, 970, 750ti)

Yes, the lower the power is limited, the more you can push the overclock, but there are Twp other factors, too high of an overclock can lead to an immediate failure when the WU returns from the CPU from a checkpoint or calculation as the chip has cooled down so it tries to boost up to 2200MHz or something equally unstable.

 

The second factor is the Quiescent load from the system is a fairly constant 35 to 70W depending on your non-GPU Hardware and this constant leads to an overall larger decrease in overall system (as opposed to just GPU) efficiency with lower GPU power draws. The efficiency (Work/time or PPD/W) should be read at the wall including the Power supply losses and what I’ve found through testing is that, though the decrease in the QRB due to returning WUs not as fast at lower Power Limits is not as significant as the increase in GPU efficiency, factoring in the System overhead means that the lowest power is usually NOT the most overall efficient but the peak in efficiency is usually somewhere around 70-90% of the GPU’s FE Power Limit.

I'll have to play around with it more in the near future. Currently both 1070ti's are OC's +150 on the GPU and 300 on the memory. So I might have a bit more headroom now for OCing since the cards havent hit temp limit but are bouncing on the 60% power limit.

There’s actual sanity checks built in and you usually can’t deliver a bad WU back. If the folding client detects 3 successive errors in a WU due to Overclocking (Bad States) it will abort the WU and you’ll lose all the computational effort. If we assume this happens at 50% through and the average WU is 3 hours you’ve just lost 90 minutes work for a 0.7% increase in clock (15/2025MHz) in order for that to be acceptable you’d have to make up that 90 minutes before another failure which is 8 1/2 days to recover before you can benefit from the marginal single step increase in clock.

HEDT (x299 etc) are just not worth it. The boards and CPUs are more expensive and you start getting into expensive power supplies and having to fart around with esoteric eATX cases and PCIe riser cables.

 

The least expensive sli-capable x370, x470, z170, z370 or z390 motherboard. This gives you two PCIe x16 at x8/x8.

A 650W Gold power supply as they’re not much more than a Bronze at this price point and 650W lets you run up to 2 RTX 2070s with a bit to spare.

a 2c/4t processor with 16 PCIe3 lanes off the CPU (i.e not AMD with APU) Intel Pentium Gold 5400 or 5500 or AMD 1200, 1600, 1700, whatever is cheapest and at least 1.9GHz

a single stick of DDR4-2400 you don’t need lots of memory or memory bandwidth.

2 NVidia 1660Ti or RTX 2060 (Supers) (Best bang for the buck in Canada currently)

a M.2 SATA Disk so no cable clutter

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Desktop

A box to put it in or a piece of plywood

110 or 140mm fans

 

Recently I’ve been getting 2700 and 2700x CPUs and running BOINC on the unused threads as these are found deeply discounted.

 

If money were no object I’d get a x299 with 4 PCIe slots and 3 M.2, a mining chassis, a 2920x, couple of 1000W power supplies and 3 x Powered M.2 to PCIe3 x4 adapters and 4 PCIe extenders and 7 cards, 4 x 2070 or 2080 Supers and 3 x 2060 Supers. PCIe3 x4 under Linux is sufficient to drive a 2080Ti with little to no loss in performance.

Yeah, thank you for explaining everything so thoroughly, but I think I will go for some HEDT which will I probably use as my main rig and this one that I currently have will become secondary.

Also, I've always used Windows, I've never had experience with Ubuntu, so that might be interesting to thing to do.

From what I can tell they are very similar . 2070s might just pip it.

I'm so glad that 14180's have finally buggered off.
But 3.3mill PPD? RIP my 1080Ti's usefulness :(

I am running a 14180 WU now, and it shows as Core 21.

Seems like they fixed the bonus also, since i remember that 14180 did not show bonus credit in the advanced control. but it does now..

Ahh, I was actually curious whether or not they fixed the servers to calculate the QRB or if we all just moved on to WU's on a different server that wasn't having the problem. Good to know it's all fixed.

That would be my preference for a new daily-driver too. In my case I'm still using a Xeon E3-1231-v3 with 32GB ECC on a SuperMicro Motherboard. With it's rocking 3.57GHz all-core boost on it's 8 threads it's starting to get a little slow so I've been eyeing Threadripper but they're coming out with new models soon so I'll likely wait until next year.

 

I'm using Windows 10 for my daily driver and other than that along with a Win 7 Pro VM for iTunes the rest of my systems are Ubuntu or other Linuxes.

 

My next system will likely have Linux as the Host Operating System and Windows as a VM on it.

I've just realised. i've had my 2070 super for a week now. and the only thing its done is fold lol

 

I think I only played CS:GO for an hour over the weekend.....

I bought used GTX 1070 around 3 weeks a go, it has been folding 24/7 since the day I got it. So I have no idea how it performs in gaming on my Linux system, I might find out some day. 🤣

I don't think you understand, there is no path out of our datacenter that does not go through the firewall hence a proxy or ssh tunnel isn't going to help in this instance. There are armed guards at every exit that will shoot on sight 😉. I jest but these servers cannot just connect to a proxy or ssh tunnel as to do so would mean the traffic has to go through the firewall to these or you have to create them inside the datacenter network so the servers can connect to them but then the datacenter firewall will just block the proxy/ssh tunnel server.

 

Sadly I don't think even Colonel Hogan could break out of this POW camp.

 

Edit:

If I get round to it I'll ask for the ports to be opened for the required servers, I mean F@H is a kind of legit purpose lol.

I didn't realize you were trying to fold on the servers themselves. I thought you had another dedicated rig on the network that you were trying to fold on. It all makes much more sense now. And worth a try but unlikely they would be comfortable opening 80 or 8080 even just for outbound since they are such common ports.

Do you overclock memory aswell?

 

I've got +100 on my 2070 super and +500 Memoery last night so see how that effects the PPD. got my fans at 85% and system fans at 100% (not bothered about noise as in a seperate room.  Temps are 60c

 

also have the 1070ti underneath it with +100 and +990 on memory. fans 66% and temps at 50c

 

Just as a note to everyone remember: For the average windows user the state your card is in while folding is likely a lower state than it hits with a 3d load. This usually leads to similar if not the same core clocks but will usually lock your mem clock to the base frequency (on maxwell cards overclocking doesn't change the mem clock in this state) on pascall and later the +500 that you might be using will still likely lead you to an overall lower clock than your non-overclocked frequency in gaming (3d) workloads. I urge you to double check your actuall clock speeds instead of just throwing your offset wherever you like. Also definitely remember to change your oc for gaming as it is a guaranteed crash.

 

The only people this doesn't apply to are anyone who knows how to lock their cards in different p states and all of you should know who you are anyways for everyone else keep this in mind it lead to a lot of crashes in last years folding month.
